Misa and I had a wonderful opportunity to fly for free! JAL (Japan Airlines) has been celebrating its 60th year of operations in Hawaii in 2014. We were invited to board a flight that took us from Oahu to the Big Island and back. Thanks to the great weather, we had clear views of Oahu, Molokai, Maui, Kahoolawe and Hawaii! It was like taking a chauffeured limousine ride around the island, but this was a little bigger…and OVER the state!
We joined approximately 200+ lucky guests and enjoyed JAL’s great hospitality. Members from the Miyazaki and Okinawa Kenjinkais, the Lanakila Senior Center, media and other, various organizations all got to participate. The JAL staff really went out of their way to make this a successful event. Although it may have seemed like a simple event to celebrate JAL’s special anniversary, the logistics to utilize airport facilities and even to fly around the state must have been a tremendous challen
A great big ARIGATOUFU to Mr. Murayama, Keiko, Mike, Dan and the JAL staff for a wonderful time! I can’t wait to see how they do their 70th anniversary!
