I spent all day traveling and am exhausted. Wyoming was teasing me about flying Continental because the last time he flew they didn't feed him, didn't show a movie, didn't provide any pillows or blankets...they got nothing. That was not my experience at all. There was a pillow and blanket on every seat when I boarded. They rolled out the drink cart at least 4 times and came around offering cold water a few times in addition to that. They fed us twice - one hot pocket type meal and then a cold sandwich later. Airplane food has never been that good. A sandwich is as appetizing as any of that other stuff they used to offer.
We also had video screens on the seat backs. I've heard rumors of those, but this is the first time I've been on a flight that had them. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to turn it on and my neighbor had to help me find the games. I also had to buy one of their $3 headphones because I couldn't get to mine. They are yours to keep, however, and you can even plug your own headphones into the adaptor. In flight entertainment was free. I watched CSI episodes, Salt starring Angelina Jolie (disappointing, glad it was free), and played card games.
I took a shuttle bus to Waikiki. They are located just outside the baggage claim area. It is 9 dollars one way or $15 round trip. I'm finally checked into my room and ready to rest up for tomorrow. I can't wait!
