    This just in from Hawaii News Now:

    HONOLULU (AP) - Honolulu International Airport is getting new ceiling fans to cool down an outdoor area heavily used by travelers arriving from Japan.

    The Japan Hawaii Travel Association paid for 32 ceiling fans newly installed in the outdoor exit area of the International Arrivals Building.

    This area can get hot and humid because surrounding parking and airport structures block the flow of trade winds. The heat is even more pronounced when hundreds of newly arrived travelers crowd the area waiting for buses or other transportation.

    The association said Wednesday it spent more than $3,300 on the fans. Airport personnel installed them and will provide maintenance as needed.


    The article doesn't say if these are electric fans or

    I would go so far as to extend your humble opinion to all of Hawaii's airports.

    After the reactor problems in Japan they were handing out paper fans on the streets since the AC had to be cut way back and even escalators were turned off. It didn't help much :(

    I was referencing Japan buying the fans for the waiting area.

    Technically it wasn't the Japanese government that did but the Japan Hawaii Travel Association (JHTA) based in Oahu.
