A regular reader emailed this comment yesterday. I’m wondering whether this was a special situation or a more general problem. Chime in if you’ve had recent experience at HNL.
My concern is about taxi’s and HNL airport–certainly not a new topic. I flew in last night from San Francisco on United. We landed approximately 10:45pm.
So we have at least 150 to 250 travelers that have been on a long flight and all they want to do is get to their hotel room or other destination.
At HNL people were asked to walk a considerable distance (with their luggage), and stand in line for taxis. But you should have seen it. There were only two or three available taxis in the designated pick-up area. A couple or rows over though were taxi’s like the the Cab that were picking up people. I got in one and the driver explained that they are only picking up people that called.
Anyway, long story short is, why can’t HNL do a better job of organizing its taxi’s for travelers. When you need one at the airport they are never around.
Of course, political battles over the airport taxi contract seem to have been ongoing for decades, but I’m not so sure about the quality of service.
Share your experience, please.
