As seems to be the tradition at American’s LAX station, boarding started several minutes ahead of schedule. When I made it to the gate at the scheduled boarding time, boarding for group 3 had already been called.
Los Angeles (LAX) – Kahului (OGG)
Saturday, January 19th, 2013
Duration: 5 hours, 55 minutes
Aircraft: Boeing 757-223 (N609AA)
Seat: 5B (First Class)
The menu read as follows:
AA generally (with rare exception) takes meal orders from front to back on even flight numbers and from back to front on odd numbers, so I was one of the first to make a meal choice. As I had not ordered a vegetarian/vegan meal in advance, I chose the four cheese ravoli.
Our arrival gate put us next to two Thomas Cook 757’s a bit far from their homes. WestJet leases them for the winter season.
