Thumbs up Coast-to-Island Do May 16-17 (Inflight Do and fun in HNL)!

Howdy Folks,

Thanks to the great fares to HNL right now, a few of us are planning a quick mileage run on United to Hawaii with enough time to actually see some stuff from May 16-17. I have never been to Hawaii and while I know the Honolulu area is a bit of a tourist trap, it's better than nothing!

The "party flights" will be UA77 (SFO-HNL) on Friday, May 16, returning on UA78 (HNL-SFO) on Saturday, May 17, which is the redeye. Pat89339 has graciously offered to make some ground recommendations, so we'll have more details up in the coming days.

I would appreciate if everyone that is confirmed (as in has a firm booking) would PM me their whole itinerary, preferrably with a PM titled "Hawaii Itinerary for [username]". Sorry to sound so you-know-what, but it makes it a lot easier to sift through PM's that way. Also please indicate whether it's ok to post your flight info as of tomorrow afternoon in the OP of this thread and whether you plan on upgrading, and if so using a confirmed upgrade or with 500'ers so we can keep track of where we'll be sitting. Now if you really want to make my day (I have no clue why you'd want to do that though) you can send it to me in the following format so I have absolutely no work to do when pasting it to the OP:
UAXXX 01/16 YYY-ZZZ, [username], Seat AAA (seat wont be posted publically)

Gracias!

Well Lucky you suckered me into this DO!

HNL what a nice place to spend a few days with friends.

I hope some people are on the non-party plane(s), like myself.

Lucky, please send my info to those that PM you who might be on my flights. Once I get the ok from you, I'll post my do flights on my calendar.

POOP!
I thought I'd be able to wedge this in between
rehearsal and concert, but it isn't going to work.

I think I can kiss my upgrade goodbye, since NF is going faster than... meh, no need, you get the point. I can only ticket at 5PM EDT this afternoon, so do you really want to torture me and make me sit in coach? Don't book yet, kids. (j/k)
