Planning a trip for 2 people to Hawaii in the beginning of october and I've been looking at all the flight options.
We're leaving from YUL and going to LIH (Kauai, Hawaii) on a friday morning, then leaving from OGG (Maui, Hawaii) to YUL on a sunday (over)night flight. We have the "luxury" of clearing US immigrations and customs at Montreal before leaving, so we're flying all-domestic flights. It's probably going to be 2 stop flights all the way around as 1 stop flights have very tight connection times. Will probably be flying with United.
I have the choice between all those airports : EWR, ORD, LAX, HNL, DEN, IAD.
Preferred route : YUL - EWR - HNL - LIH for a longer flight between EWR and HNL in a bigger plane, as suggested by some members on TA forums.
2 questions here :
1) What would be the minimum connection time for any (or all) of those airports? I'm assuming here we don't change terminal (United usually specifies when we change terminal) and don't have to go through security?
2) Any airports better to avoid at all?
Thanks for your input!
