I held a booking HNL-OGG-KOA/ITO-HNL. Booked this intentionally instead of a direct HNL-KOA to see some more local airports on Hawaii along the way, as the place is rather exotic for me (coming from central Europe). Now, I've just received an email from Hawaiian about a flight change. It appears the OGG-KOA segment has been cancelled as I was rebooked to OGG-HNL-KOA instead, i.e. the complete outbound booking now looks like this: HNL-OGG-HNL-KOA, which I'm afraid is significantly less attractive, given the fact that it's all happening in a single morning. What would the local experts suggest? Call Hawaiian directly and ask them to change it to an earlier connection? It's a dirt cheap fare so I'm wondering if they would insist on some rebooking fees etc. Thanks!
