Just be prepared for pilots that look like they just graduated high school. Very friendly, low key way to see the islands from the air while you move from one to the other. They fly lower than the big boys. Watch your head.(-;

We flew Mololele Airlines from Moloka'i to Maui for the first time and we extraordinarily pleased. We were a bit leery flying in a 9 passenger plane but it was efficient and delightful. So much better than our flight from the Big Island to Moloka'i...More

I have to admit, I was nervous when I looked at the small plane because I can get airsickness. No worries!! It was fairly smooth and the view is the same as a tour! Really really beautiful. Highly recommend it. And there’s no security so...More

Aloha - thank you for the review. We apologize for the situation, it appears you should have been charged for the bag in both directions. A checked bag is free at 15lbs or less. We hope you enjoyed the flight overall! Thanks for choosing Mokulele.

They assign seats but we took their planes twice and each time we were sit to each other. A women in front of me was also aside her little kid. They always try to put you aside your partner.
