  1. Every time I see a $99 or $129 airfare offer from Delta, United, or American Airlines, I flashback to Hooters Air’s efforts to maximize customer service while offering passengers a luxurious onboard passenger comfort and entertainment experience.

  2. Thinking back to Hooters and a funny moment. On the parking lot bus to the terminal at BWI, the driver called out for airlines. We all yelled out, American, United, etc. Finally, a rather feeble voice came from the back of the bus, a sole gentleman who muttered, “Hooters.” The entire bus burst out laughing – truly a classic moment.

  3. If Hawaii’s economy crashes due to tourism related issues, it will be the most hilarious thing ever.

  4. My understanding about increased tourism in Hawaii is that a lot of it was from Japan and China.

  5. Could care less about that overrated chain of rocks in the Pacific. They have hinted at defecting.

  6. @joanie_adams, and why not? The Kingdom of Hawaii was an independent nation before it was invaded and taken over by the USA.
