  1. Larry Ellison purchased Island Air? Wow!
    I’m going to speculate they plan to create some cool package deals that make going to Lanai more affordable.

    1. Dave — that’s a great idea.

      By the way, we had dinner with Larry Ellison on Saturday. Well, not exactly at his table, but we were in the same restaurant (One Forty at Four Seasons Lanai at Manele Bay) at the same time. So, that counts, right? 😉
