Not really sure if this needs another new thread so I'll ask here. Cyber Monday sale is on. Is $626 the lowest price for a round trip flight YWG-OGG? Or should I wait for Boxing day sale? First time to Hawaii and unable to find airfare references for YWG-OGG.

EDIT: This is Westjet by the way. I got excited on September and booked @766 so with the $25 cancellation fee, I'll have 115 in travel credits if I get the current sale. So wondering if I should wait and hope for a cheaper fare or not. Trip is around mid June on set days.
Booked my parents with AC a few weeks ago for $540 all in. There was $500 too but was 19hr day vs 12. I did WestJet through Avion points months ago and it was around $650 with WestJet. So your deal wasn't anything special.

Wow 540 all in is a good deal for YWG to OGG. There's one < $200 but was from YOW and a limited time deal. Thanks for the input, I'll see if prices go down a little bit further towards our flight dates.

I just bought a power bank to charge phones/tablets etc on the plane. Do I even need this if there are USB ports on the plane? It says one of my planes have plugs and the other just USB. Is that enough? Power bank was only $30 but I don't know if I'll actually use it again.

Maybe it is just my bad luck but the USB ports on the aircraft just never seem to work. I would get the power bank. It comes in handy. I have used mine a lot lately. I have been using my phone as our primary camera and the battery drains fast so, the pack is useful.

Yeah I think I'll just keep it. My son has his switch and hopefully can charge that too if we don't really need it for phones.

just take this into account for travel around the island of oahu. I usually use this highway to get to Kailua/Lanikai, looks like it will be closed for months.
Oh man, I know! It is such an incredible drive, the way you see the ocean as you come out the tunnel on the way to Kailua-too bad for anyone who usually uses it.

I was watching a clip on HawaiiNewsNow and there was a worker just standing on the highway watching as the landside was happening. The way those cliffs are so steep, no way would I stand there!

some girl is in serious condition, she was in the bed of a pickup that got hit by the rocks, just a crazy story.
Got that Zoomer account!

We went to old lahaina luau which is a more traditional one. It was neat to experience but I wouldn't do it again or really recommend it for anyone with kids. For four of us it was something like $420USD. With kids you may want to look at a polynesian one like @jigsatics mentioned as I think they use fire and make it more entertaining for kids.

Depends on which tower you get. One of them had a serious mould problem.

Well the location is very good, essentially just across the street from the Kuhio section of Waikiki beach. That is a pretty good swimming area and lots happens on the lawn just before the beach like the free hula shows at sunset. YOu are only better if you are actually beachfront but this is almost as good.

This used to be the Pacific Beach Hotel and its claim to fame was a huge aquarium in the lobby. It was one of the first sort of mega hotels along the strip there. I think the reno looks amazing considering what it used to be and I would not hesitate to stay there. I think this is a better choice than the Hilton Hawaiian Village which is located quite a bit west of here at the beginning of Waikiki.
