Last time we flew from Kailua-kona to HNL to connect with a flight to ORD on the mainland we were told that we could not check our luggage all the way through to our destination. We were told we would have to pick up our luggage and re=check it in HNL. Our travel companion convinced the ticket agent to check them all the way through and it was done without incident.
This summer we are going to be flying from LIH to HNL to ORD. Will we be able to check our luggage all the way to our destination? If not how much of a hassle is rechecking it and how long will it take? This will determine how much of a lay-over I plan for HNL.
