View Full Version : Interisland flight from Kona, Hi to Hololulu

I am flying July of 2007. I found Aloha airlines at $46.00. Go airlines at $39.00. Both have the same baggage restrictions. Except for price, would anyone choose one over the other? Both allow 2 checked pieces of luggage, max. 50 pounds each. So, there is no difference in luggage restrictions.

Also, is it possible that I would find a cheaper fare if I waited? These seem pretty cheap to me.

We haven't flown on Go yet, but it appears that they fly a much smaller plane (50 seats) vs. the larger 737 that Aloha uses. We have flown on Aloha and there were no problems, but because it is open seating, it may be less hassle to fly on the smaller plane that Go uses (less people milling about wating to board).

Are you sure you are reading those luggage limits correctly? I found most of their policies poorly written and vague.

It seems to me that their policy is the same as Island Air, 50 pounds total, two checked items. Their planes are the same size, I doubt they will allow more luggage. We flew Go and they lost our luggage for 36 hours. Very upsetting, especially when they confirmed at HNL that our luggage was there, ready to load.
