Hi people,

I the use Forum in these matters in the hope that

I MIGHT get a reply from a Genuine Traveller who

has put in the Hard Miles and are known as the Hard Hitters in our terminology which seems to be

Vastly different to most others.

As far as Travel Agents are concerned I find that

some of them " would not know what their own back yard looks like." Otherwise the service and good

cordiality of the one agency I have dealt with on 5

trips has been excellent and ironically the managers

have been Londoners who have returned home to earn better pay and promotion..

Having said all of that I realize that the 1st plan I had theorised is far too short and another

few days could make the difference of a satisfaction

level.THe economics of the trip will be a deciding

issue as one firm have already jacked up their rates

by 17% just to do a round trip to Hawaii in Feb/09.

As noted there is still a LOT of homework to be done yet..All the best to eveybody..NoelinOZ

If it is decreed that Hawaii is the only tourist

resort that I will ever see then so be it because I

consider myself to be a winner. You can say that I

like the place...

Flying solo in all ways I do not even book a room

through Agents and I walk in off the street and get a fair to good deal or try elsewhere.This is not a feasible strategy if you arrive in Honolulu about

11pm and I do NOT recommend it.It also helps to go

to what you Know.

I still believe that world is a great place and I

wish that I could have seen more of it.

Give Sao Paulo to Dallas a try. I have many Briazilian friends from Rio and they always fly into Sao Paulo and then get a connecting flight.

San Francisco to Honolulu..

Hawaiian or United

Go to www.kayak.com

Use the advanced search options that may help you out, like you can put in number of stops, also do parameters of hours between connections.

Kayak gets you results from both the expedia and orbitz type sites and the airline's own websites.

It works very well for finding who flies where.

Use the multi-city search to explore going through certain hubs.

Be kind to our OP everyone, as it's an Aussie.

You know...they're upside down...OK, I getting out of here now!

Dear OP, I wouldn't want to fly what you're flying. I have jet lag already.

I was being kind, but looking at my post it was pretty cut and dried, because I was in a hurry. So, to noelinoz, let me say that I love being able to use this search engine and it works for me, so by referring you to it -- I think it will work for you.

Not saying to go away and do a search. Do a search AND ask the forum. When you have found the routes, you can maybe find people here who've flown them on that airline

AND

go to Skytrax

http://www.airlinequality.com/

where there are frequent traveler (hard hitter) reviews of each airline by the route and type of plane, which will help you know what the flight experience might be like on that carrier.

hI PEOPLE, [and others]

Righto you lot get off the grass and behave

yourselves!! Seek and Ye Shall find. 1st step

accomplished thanks to your witicisms and a few

criticisms which were all taken with a lemon and

bitters. Thanks gals and guys.

We are having a long weekend now so I will so

I will do some more research..That Sao Paulos

looks to be real eyeful and could constitute a

tour in it's own right. Are there any more fully

experienced Hard Hitters around. Don't be a shy

shrinking Violet and send it Down. After doing 41

years of heavy transport driving around most of OZ

I can cop anything you lot can hand down. Many

Thanks to all from NoelinOz...
