Don't speed in Kauai. Have a great trip!
I have a suggestion for efficiency, TAKE OUT YOUR LAPTOP AND ALL TOILETRIES FROM YOUR BAG WHEN THE OFFICERS ASK YOU TO DO IT!!! Now there's a good tip!!!
Get your private pilots license and skip security all together! :) come and go as you please. Never a delay.
I don't want to go home!
If you are confused on where to get your rental car go out front, then behind the closed stands and there will be shuttles.
6 hour direct flight from LAX, worth the trip!
Take the left TSA line… they don't perform full body scans.
My flight leaves at 830 on a Saturday. I read these tips, freaked out and got here at 6. It's now 625 and I'm waiting at the gate. Don't believe everything you hear.
Welcome to Kauai! Check out The Feral Pig a mile away in Harbor Mall/Kalapaki for cold beers, craft cocktails & incredible food. Can you say housemade bacon?!
Top 3 must do's: helicopter ride, luau, canyon drive. Aloha!
Hawaiian Airlines have horrible service. Get here early. Baggage check is a cluster, staff incompetent, security line single file.
Go beach now!
Peak times daily are 10:30am-1:00pm and 5:30pm-9:00pm. Weekends are busier. Recommendation: check in AT LEAST 1/2-2 HOURS BEFORE YOUR FLIGHT during these times. Including INTERISLAND travel!!!!
If you didn't get you coffee yet, don't worry, they have a Starbucks in the terminal.
Definitely get here early. We were a few hours early and it wouldn't have hurt to come even earlier. The single line does not help with efficiency.
A 2nd checkpoint opens up daily from 10:30am- 12:30pm and 7:00pm-8:30pm. Located on the North end of the terminal next to Baggage Claim A.
Aloha!! Hope you are staying at the Courtyard Marriott on Coconut beach! They have the best staff and you get a FREE Mai Tai when you check in :)
If you get here too early, take a free shuttle to the Mariott and wait on the beach. You can even check your bags! Genius.
TSA Screeners will not be happy when you request pat-down and are collecting personal information on all opt-outs
Sad to leave. See tunnels beach for clear blue tinted water and white sand.
We had a very good experience at this airport. Ticketing, checking bags and security were a breeze! We were here at 330pm on a Saturday.
Most inefficient airport to date. Stay patient and have some aloha spirit to get through the mess.
Web check-in will speed up your time at this airport considerably.
if you bring salt or grainy items - you should bring it out with your liquids because they will make you do the whole extra screening...
I followed the tips and got here 2 hours before our flight. Its a Saturday night in Oct and we went through everything smoothly and quickly. No probs. Now waiting while locals play some music.
Island Air took nearly an hour to check in the 8 people in front of us. Get here early--and maybe with a lil buzz. :)
If you are bringing a bottle of coconut syrup in a locked checked bag, expect to be paged to unlock your bag. It also means you'll have to go through the security line twice.
No WiFi available! Oh Noes!
Going to the Kauai Marriott? Get a free shuttle by calling the resort on the phone to the right of information just outside the airport.
Get here early. The TSA lines are long!
I mahalo at you later!
Hot here too
Who serves rice with lasagna?
Amazing trip...courtyard at coconut beach and enterprise rental car all the way...
Don't bring anything in with seeds..I couldn't bring my starbucks sandwich to the gate bc it had a tomato in it. with seeds.
Check in online before heading to the airport. Also remember that Hawaiian makes you check in carry-ons that are over 25lbs...
If you're on AA. Font bother coming super early. Easy check in and go to the security line nearest gate 4.
There is Not a first class lane. Get here early.
Slowest airport. Get there early. Single line to get boarding passes and rarely do they open another security line.
Got here 1 hour early for a 630 AM flight on a Saturday. Pretty empty at this hour. Breezed through.
The lines here are a nightmare. Get here early early early!
If you are leaving Lihue on a Saturday night, get here EARLY. At least 2 hours. More if you can. Aloha.
Marcelo (Hawaiian Air counter) is the nicest employee I've ever met at any airport in the world. And I used to live in China, Japan, Greece, and Turkey. After days of confusion on the phone with multi
Wonderful service onAA
HOLiDAYS !! Don't leave the airport without renting a Car, you'll need it !!!!
go! Airlines should change their name to wait! Airlines
I don't know why but its so humid and sticky at the airport.. But weather for the rest of the island is awesome
Apparently arriving at 5:20 on a Wednesday means no lines, and the fastest trip through security yet! #happyBIC
Here's a tip for you, don't opt out of the body scan machine:-)
