interisland air travel

Hi...planning a Feb 2 week vacation (from East coast) Oahu - Maui - BI. Since we will be leaving from Honolulu just wanted to have feedback about our last day.
We plan to leave BI and fly to Oahu for flight home that evening. This way we'll be in the airport and not have so much running around to do. Are the flights reliable, on time? Wouldn't want to miss our flight home! Thanks.

Overall, have experienced few problems with morning and afternoon flights on Hawaiian or Aloha from KOA to HNL.

Sometimes the security does a thorough hand search of the checked luggage, but this happens at other airports in Hawaii as well.

On other evening interisland flights (e.g. HNL to LIH) the planes have been occassionally delayed for over an hour, so would suggest if flying in the evening from KOA to HNL to try to arrive at HNL at least ~2 hours before the flight back to the mainland, especially if you are flying on your carrier's last scheduled flight to the mainland that evening.

We had no problems with Hawaiian Airlines. We got the airports about 90 min early and everytime there were earlier flights leaving that they could have put us on. We opted to just wait for our flight, because it would have been pointless to go and wait at the other airport for our next interisland flight. If it had been for a mainland flight it would have been good to take the earlier flight.

So from what I saw, flights were on-time, and were not always full so the option of leaving earlier (if you were there and ready) was there.

have fun!
