Avoid Bumping Very Old Threads - link to this guideline
Unless there is a compelling reason, avoid bumping threads that are more than two years old. Often the information is out-dated and it clogs the forums, making it difficult to find current threads.

While you make a good point in this case (given that the procedure mentioned in HNL is no longer in force), I love our consistency:
- create a new thread and somebody is upset you didn't use an existing one
- use an existing one and other complian it is too old.

Not sure but agreed that this is an extremely old thread. I had tagged along to see if someone who travelled the route recently may like to share some of the more current experience.

In consideration, I have deleted my other post.

Actually this is from the TOS of Flyertalk that I quoted! I was called on this by the member who posted and deleted above me.....in a thread on the CX forum ! And I do agree with you LEV.....the consistency is like a loose BM !

Wouldn't a simple call to AC have answered this question?

Thanks, for the responses - I did read the responses.

I also did call AC.

I feel it is quite appropriate to post the question on this thread - to see how the procedures have changed over the last 5 yrs. Now, ALL passengers, even those who are Australia-bound, must clear US customs and immigration in YVR. This also implies that there is no sterile transit area in HNL anymore (as indicated in the earlier posts on this thread) - it that a casualty of the security procedures post-9/11?

The loss of the TWOV (Transit Without Visa) program post 9/11, yes.
