HNL Gate Connections DISCUSSION

Coming back from KOA flying Hawaiian Air and will have to collect luggage (2 50 lb bags) and transfer to American for flight back to mainland. What is the best way to do it? Will have 3.5 hrs but in my 60's so not in the best physical condition.
We're arriving on Hawaiian from SFO, then connecting on JAL to Haneda - 2 separate intineraries.
Do we need to pick up baggage and then go thru TSA check again to connect? Is 2 hours layover enough time? (traveling with 4 kids ages 9-12)
Where is terminal z?
There is no Terminal Z. There is a main terminal, which you use if you are flying outside Hawaii, there is an interisland terminal, which you use if you are flying Hawaiian between islands, and a commuter terminal, if you are flying a small airline like Mokulele.
Traveling from Long Beach to HNL where I join a tour group to Japan. Long Beach flight arrives 11:40 am and plane to Japan leaves at 2:30pm. Will I have go through customs, security, etc. again to be re-checked for the flight to Japan. Should I just have a carryon bag? Can I check bag in in Long Beach and it will be transferred to plane to Japan
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. What airline are you flying to Japan? Is it all one one reservation or two separate reservations?
It may be either one or two separate reservations. Whichever one is easier , more convenient, cheaper. Many factors to consider
Where do I catch the shuttle to go from Delta to Hawaiian Air Lines
Where is it?
That means main terminal I believe.
Would like contact information to get help for elderly parents flying in from Kauai on Hawaiian air and transferring to Delta to fly back to mainland. They were told they needed to retrieve their baggage and recheck in at Delta. They would need a wheelchair for my mother and baggage help. Neither airline can help with transfer!
Will be arriving to gate 14 around 11am and have a Mokulele (Commuter terminal) flight at 1205pm. I'm carrying on my luggage. Do you think that will be enough time?
You take a shuttle bus from the commuter terminal to the main terminal. You have just enough time.
I have 50 mins to move from Terminal Z to Main terminal. Do I have enough time by foot? if not, what's other alternative?
You take a shuttle bus from the commuter terminal to the main terminal. You have just enough time.
Transiting from HNL interisland terminal to Alaska airlines in the main terminal with only a carryon bag. Will an hour and fifteen minutes be enough time walking ?
Thank you
That should be enough time.
