I am/was ticketed to go to Maui with my family next month but our airlines just went belly up, so now I am trying to see what we can do. I am on hold with some guy in who knows where, so wish me luck!

Any Maui brewers out there?
Before I learned to brew I was poor, sober and lonely. Now I am just poor.

Bummer. I hope you used a credit card to pay for those tickets and not a debit card. You can get your money back pretty easy, but it looks like the bigger problem is getting to Maui.

Hopefully one of the other airlines honors Aloha's tickets.

Providing you get your money back, fly into Oahu on one of the major airlines and then travel to Maui on Go Airlines. They are decent, and cheap.

Ouchee, been hearing about this airline stuff on the radio. My girlfriend is from Oahu but she does not share my interest in brewing. She's always telling me that the Big Island is the best vacation spot (mainly because it's less populated with tourists).
All beer is essentially the same, it is all fermented piss colored water!

Ditch the trip to Maui and come to Wisconsin is about the same thing. Right?

I heard on the news that there are actually people stuck in hawaii because they have no way of getting off the island. Well, i guess not stuck, because they could pony up the money for another ticket.

Oh, wait...

(and don't give me Heard Island, which would be roughly akin to calling LA and San Francisco part of the Hawaii experience)

That said (and having been to both) I'd go back to Australia 5 times before I'd think about going back to Hawaii.

That sucks, BP.

Technically you vacation is grounded and not "up-in-the-air".

Are your travel dates flexible?

Stay away from Oceanic.
