Okay....this is a vent....you are warned!
It's been 10 years since my last trip to Maui but prior to that we've been lots of times. While putting together a trip for next summer, I've been more than dismayed to see what is being quoted for LAX-OGG. I see ticket prices of $1,000! HEY AIRLINES!! ARE YOU GUYS NUTS??? For our family of three, it's a fortune.
I am watching our entire vacation budget evaporate and seriously having to consider another destination. This is truly depressing as I was really looking forward to returning to our favorite island.....sigh...may have to paddle the surfboard towing my wife and daughter across the Pacific.
