I'll be the first to admit that, when I was a kid, I was pretty excited about taking an airline flight in a Boeing 707. My whole family was going from Philadephia (PHL) to Honolulu (HNL) with a stop in Los Angeles (LAX) and returning through San Francisco (SFO). However exciting air travel may have been in my pre-teen boyhood, spending two weeks in the Aloha State was considerably more exciting and fun.
