Just wondering what everyone's experiences were with the Halfway to Hawaii game since the merger. I think Hilton is sponsoring it now, but it's been hit and miss whether or not they play it. Here's my experience so far this year: May- SFO-OGG. UA crew. Didn't play. Asked the flight attendant about it. Reported that the captain didn't want to because they were in "negociations" and he didn't want to do it. She offered us the prize (a Lonely Planet book). July- LAX-OGG. CO crew. Didn't play. The flight attendant I asked seemed confused. This was right after they switched CO to all the Hawaii routes, so maybe they didn't know about it. Flight was also delayed 5 hours due to MX- not sure if that had anything to do with it. Nov- LAX-HNL. CO crew. Played. Didn't win (3 min 16 sec) Nov- GUM-HNL. UA HNL based crew- best ever! Love those guys. Played. I won! (1 min 32 sec) Not sure a lot of other people played though, because either I missed it (noise cancelling headsets) or they didn't announce the details so I had to ask. Gave the book to my neighbor since I already had one (see above). Dec- LAX-OGG. CO Crew. Didn't play. Pilot didn't want to. I realize the game is pilot's discretion, as is channel 9, but it is a fun tradition I'd like to see continued.
