Writer not quite thinking here:

In 2015, the Hairpin posted a handwritten letter (complete with drawings) by Tricia Louvar that tallied the price of one J.Crew “everyday” outfit to $596, together with a list of other things she could by for that amount, such as a nonstop flight from San Francisco to Honolulu.

Where are you going to stop between SF and Hawaii?

  1. Anywhere in the ocean. Once.

    And, jokes aside, airlines have weird routing that can take you across the country in the wrong direction to connect you to a plane going to where you want to go.

  2. Bloke in Germany

    Anywhere you can connect. Like Los angeles.

    Non-stop flights are usually more expensive than those with a stop.

  3. I am glad the writer pointed out her PhD to increase her credibility somehow about fashion buying whims.

  4. Tsk tsk, Tim.

    The writer (and the cartoonist she quotes) says “San Francisco to Honolulu”, not San Francisco to Hawaii. A quick search on skyscanner.net shows many SFO – HNL flights with stops, some on the continent (as far as Phoenix), some on other Hawaiian islands, some with both.

    So there.

    But hey, that flag!


  5. So Much For Subtlety

    Agammamon – “Anywhere in the ocean. Once.”

    At least one of Pan-Am’s Clipper Flying boats failed to make it across the Pacific and landed in the ocean. I believe everyone survived. The plane would have too except the ship towing it ran over it.

    Diogenes – “In some ways the best route would be via Singapore… Or maybe Cape Town”

    Another of Pan-Am’s Clippers was flying from Auckland to LA when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbour. So they made an in-flight decision to change their route. They flew to New York instead – the other way around, via Africa.
