United, American, Hawaiian, Delta,

i from mainland cities. Most major west coast cities have non-stop flights to Lihue. If you do opt for a connection in Honolulu, make sure that your luggage is checked through to your final destination, Lihue. Before you get on the plane, you may want to think about what you’re wearing, and put your overcoat in your carry-on, or checked bags. The weather in Hawaii is likely to be much warmer and more humid than where you came from, although certainly less hot and humid than the southern
United States in summertime. Many visitors put a day's worth of clothing in their carry-on so they can change on the plane, or just in case their luggage gets lost at the airport.
The state of Hawaii does not observe Daylight Saving Time, so set your watch accordingly. From the last Sunday in October until the first Sunday in April, Kaua'
i is two hours behind West Coast, USA time. During the spring and summer months, there is a three hour time difference.
If you do change planes in Honolulu, you will have to go to the inter-island terminal for your connecting flight. The Wiki Wiki shuttle runs every few minutes, and will take you to the inter-island terminal, or you can walk there in less than ten minutes. Turn right out of the main terminal and follow the signs.
