I have traveled interisland perhaps 20 or 30 trips and never upgraded to first. Those who know me admit I am cheap, but I just don't see the excitement of first class on interisland trips.

Yes, the seats are more plush and the you will get served quickly, but the flights are so short that coach barely gets their water or juice before they have to give it up.

We are talking perhaps an hour from gate to gate and that is on a long flight like HNL to KOA. Often the plane gets up to altitude and starts descent with little or no cruise time. A current Hawaiian flight 120 shows a 30 minute flight and 6 minutes at altitude from HNL to KOA.

So, yes, early boarding, plush seats and early drink service which will all occur so quickly you may not even notice :-)
