When you are flying on an inter-island flight, try if you can to get a window seat, avoiding the views of the wing of course. There’s a good chance you’ll get a nice view and neat perspective of the islands from the air. I’ve always had better luck with the views when I’ve flown on the side of the plane with the A and B seats. Here are a few points to notice about the islands from your window seat:
- the rough volcanic shape of the islands.
- how undeveloped the mountainous areas are
- the difference in leeward and windward sides
- how pretty the beaches look even from the air
I took the photo above as we were taking a Hawaiian Air flight from Honolulu to Kona. Pretty cool, huh?
