This Hawaiian icon has become to be known as an expression of many things from congratulations to romance. It’s an inexpensive and traditional way to mark a special occasion, show affection and offer respect.
Airport lei greetings are a wonderful and memorable experience. Nowhere else on earth can you be welcomed off a long transpacific flight into an airport that has flower-scented air and hoards of lei greeters with arms draped with colorful fresh flower garlands. Arrange a greeting in advance and you will be one of the lucky recipients to have one draped over your neck.
