we are going to kauai the end of april and are so excited! we are flying from south carolina. there are a few flights involved and arriving at lihue at 7:30 pm. a friend who goes to hawaii often told us to change our flights, get a nights rest in LA and then go on to lihue arriving in the afternoon. sounds like a great idea so contacted airline and was told it will be a fee of $130 each (two of us) plus of course the cost of a hotel at the airport. we would rather have extra $$ for helicopter ride or something else and deal with being exhausted. are we wrong, should we rebook flights so we are not tired????
