Pictures: Heading Home from Hawaii to Los Angeles

Today was a longer than planned travel day thanks to a big delay of our inbound flight on Delta. We got an alert of a couple hour delay yesterday and then this morning the time was pushed even later. Due to Aulani’s 11am checkout time and our noon rental car drop off we decided to just head to the airport and wait it out. Here are some pictures from my journey home –

Had plenty of time at the airport with a delayed flight. Knew this ahead of time but had to get rental car back so decided to just wait it out.

Because of the delay Delta sent us each $15.. it got me this which costs $15.16. A drink would have been another $5. I think the vouchers in Hawaii should be more than $15.
