We finished packing, then made our lunch for the plane (not too smart), and got a taxi to the airport shortly after 1:30. When we got to the airport we realized that we were going to go through US customs immediately before clearing security. We were pretty sure we wouldn’t get our food through customs and so we sat down and ate most of it. Since we’d had our main noon meal just an hour earlier, it was kind of stuffing ourselves. We couldn’t finish one apple so had to throw it away. So much for our plans!
We had a very smooth and uneventful flight to Kona, arriving about 8:30 local time after a six hour flight.
