Hawaii has been ranked number two just once before since 1997 when Harris began asking the question. more
Every Friday we answer questions from podcast listeners who have questions. Today we answer the question from Luke in Australia who is interested in the airline industry and wanted to know what impact the lost of Aloha airlines had on our company. We discussed the impact this had and also discuss the local airline industry in general. I also talk a little bit about airlines in general and my disappointment with them especially in the last few years.
I also got an e-mail from another person in Australia this week. Bob wanted to know why I have such a strong anti-Jimmy Buffett stance. I talk about why I have strong feelings about Jimmy Buffett and it really has nothing to do with him personally. I had a bad experience at his restaurant during one of his live performances that I share with everybody this week.
