Still, the signage was inadequate and the HNL employees seemed overwhelmed and exasperated by the challenge of sorting passengers into two - or was it three? - separate lines.
We eventually made it through that crowd (so much for social distancing), only to find a baggage carousel that got jammed up. Employees finally arrived to clear it.
After they, we found our transfer driver from go808ecpress and enjoyed a relaxing drive to the Hilton Waikiki Beach.
We checked in and after asking nicely were assigned an ocean view room on the 17th floor. Nice.
