I want to know why it is more expensive and more difficult to book travel with ADA needs? It's been a real eye opener and a learning experience.

Nonetheless I know the time spent research and booking this trip is so worth it. I do want to also say that the travel people here on the Mainland (esp AAA) were not nearly as helpful as those I spoke with in Hawaii! I just that ALOHA spirit!

AND.......we ended up at Hilton Hawaiian Village. Not too shabby but I was honest and my honesty cost us more money. They charge a horrendous amount more per person for more than 2 adults in one room. So I booked 2 rooms. Why am I not so good at withholding certain information and cramming people into hotel rooms?

Maybe I still have time to learn


ONE HUNDRED THIRTY FOUR DAYS AND COUNTING.........

Because sometimes, it's just too hard to lie. My sister can't lie. She's too honest about things and I'm like damn it, just say this and that. And then she goes and tells the truth!!

Yeah, it's not bad to be honest.

It just sucks that when you're honest you lose hundreds of dollars cos you have to pay extra for a person to stay in a room and such.

I don't like lying too much but when it comes to hotels. I'm not paying for an extra person.

Here's the official stadium config from http://alohastadium.hawaii.gov/pdfs/u2map.pdf



I remember they released some L and LL sections in the spring, did they release any M or MM at that time as well?

I remember checking these out and there seemed to be plenty available in these sections before the concert was postponed. I seem to recall these were priced @ $99. Does that sound right?

Originally, the were behind the stage but with the new configuration they turned out to be excellent seats.

I believe the GA sold out during the pre sale and very early days of the original ticket sales.

Probably not many, mainly any turned in from those who chose not to go in Dec. I'd imagine. It'll be interesting to see what is released come Aug 5th AND if a 2nd show appears.

Was this article posted in the old thread? If so, sorry for reapeating it.

Aloha Stadium losing baseball configuration

Looks like they're going to permanently lock it in football configuration. Makes sense, the baseball team left years ago.
