Cookies were a sweet bonus to great service
One of my first airplane trips was aboard Aloha Airlines at age 5 in 1983 between Honolulu and Kahului. It was my first visit to Hawaii, and I immediately wanted a model of the plane to take home! Since that time, I have flown Aloha a number of times, both interisland and trans-Pacific. Aloha had the best in-flight service I've ever experienced (particularly those cookies served to/from California). My condolences to all of those that worked for Aloha. It was a great airline with a legacy to be proud of!
I remember the first time I ever stepped foot on Aloha. It was my first plane ride, and I was really terrified. Although I was with my family, the flight attendant said that everything would be OK and that we would all land safely. Ever since that experience, I never forgot how nice and caring the flight crew was.
So I want to say thank you and a BIG aloha to the employees.
I am from Canada, and my very first interisland flight was with Aloha Airlines; the flight and ground crew were super. I know that I will miss flying with Aloha Airlines when I return to Hawaii in the future. Aloha Airlines treats you like a somebody, and that is what I'll miss along with the wonderful service.
