Honolulu: Confusion at HNL

After an enjoyable flight on Alaska, we had hoped our arrival would be smooth. We had our Hawaii Safe Travels form confirmed with two green checks emailed to us, and wristbands attached by the Alaska employees at PDX.



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.
