Airline Travel: Tips and Tricks

Although I’ve worked for the airlines for about 30 years I still become a bit stressed when it comes to packing, getting to the airport and through security.  For one thing, I tend to pack at the last minute and often times I either bring too much clothes or not enough.  If only I would take the time to write down the days and the activities we plan to do would I have the right amount of wardrobe and footing.  With almost every airline charging for checked baggage, it is best to plan ahead.

Repairs on H1

If you are heading Ewabound after 6:30pm Monday thru Friday, be aware that there are lane closures on H1 between the hours of 7pm and 4am.  Motorists should expect heavy delays and plan accordingly as it will sometimes take twice the amount of time to get to your destination .  Traffic starts to backup by the Pearlridge area and continues till about the H2 cutoff.

I usually take the Aiea cutoff and drive along Kam Hwy.  The traffic flows smoothly until you reach Pearl City close to Don Quixote.  It then crawls until you reach Sam’s Club then you breeze on towards Ewa or onto H2 Northbound.  Consider yourself lucky if it rains since construction is usually postponed.

Driving on Hawaii's Roads

In Hawaii, directions such as North, South, East, and West are substituted with North Shore, South Shore, Diamond Head (East), Ewa (West), Makai (Ocean), or Mauka (Mountain).  Don't worry about getting totally lost since you'll have the ocean on one side and the mountain on the other. Plus, many drivers now have GPS and Google Maps to guide them along.  An app called Waze gets real time updates on traffic by those participants who are on the road ahead of you.  Be thankful to those motorists who send in reports to notify drivers behind them whether or not the coast is clear.
