All About Our 9 Hour Flight To Hawaii on #UnitedAirlines


We recently traveled to Oahu Hawaii for spring break. We flew United Airlines out of Raleigh, NC and we had an hour layover in Houston, Texas. I had just enough time in the Houston airport to grab a Starbucks and a fruit cup before it was time to board the flight.  From Houston, Texas the flight to Oahu Hawaii was 9 hours!! The time also changed and we lost 6 hours since we were coming from the East Coast. I chose United Airlines because they were the best priced flights I could find. We really enjoyed flying United. We were able to each bring a carry on size bag on the flight plus a 'personal item' which was the kids backpacks. Overall the flight went fairly smooth. They no longer offer complimentary meals on flights to Hawaii, however they had meals available for purchase including snacks. They did give out complimentary pretzels and drinks.  To view the menu's for United Airlines visit the United Airlines website. They also gave out complimentary ear buds and a (new) soft blanket. 

It was so nice having our own tv screens! We were able to watch lots of movies and tv shows.


I ended up purchasing my kids their own "Classic Snack Box" which cost $10 and included:
Cheese spread
Crackers
Oreos (2)
Pretzel Crisp bag
Root Beer Float marshmallow (this was delicious!)
Salami
Twizzlers


They also sell a "Kids Snack Box" which costs $6 and includes: applesauce, beef stick, cheddar crackers, fruit snacks and graham snacks.

My kids watched two movies on the flight. I had packed them a lot of fun things to do in their backpacks to keep them busy. Check out my detailed packing list here. In addition to watching movies my kids also did some sticker activity books, played with Lego's, did some drawing, played on their Nintendo DS's and they never napped! UGH! The 9 hour flight went by somewhat fast up until the last hour. My kids started to get antsy so I took them to walk around the plane, we asked the flight attendants for an extra sprite and we walked the aisles for about ten minutes.
