According to local legend, the Lady in Waiting at the Honolulu Airport is an apparition that stands at the gate at night, peering out at the runway. She is a blonde lady in a white dress, and she sometimes appears in secure areas where most people don’t have clearance to go. So the legend goes, she fell in love with a man who promised to marry her. He took off on an international flight and never returned, so she committed suicide, and yet she still waits for him to return. Also at the airport, some witnesses claim restrooms are haunted by toilet paper rolls that unravel before your eyes, toilet seats that slam down, and toilets that flush by themselves. And on the Wiki-Wiki shuttle, a ghost passenger appears at the back in the middle of the night. Among other mysterious happenings at this airport, there is also a choking ghost who sits on people’s chest, making them feel as if they are choking.

The third floor was messed up. I accidently went up there and you were not supposed to. It looked like he/l on Earth. It was green on the walls and the hallway in front of me was black. It wasn’t dark but the absence of light. It was 3pm.
Wow that is cool but i wanna see a ghost i didn’t know that hawwii had haunt the airport wjere would you travel without a air port its crazy!
Under gate 33 and 34 is the airports storage freezer for the dead that are being transported to other states or countries. Upstairs in the passenger waiting areas the lights are sensored, after so many minutes the lights will turn off in three different sections closest to the window then the middle section and then the beginning. One night I had to go out to that gate to check for leftover wheelchairs, I stopped over at the restrooms right outside of gate 34 before I went into the restroom I took noticed that the lights had already turned off meaning that there was no movement in that gate area for a while. When I exited the restroom I noticed that the light along the glass window was on.. that’s interesting because no other light was on except the one all the way at the windows. There’s no way someone could have walked into that gate area without triggering the sensor for the other lights…. now there’s some food for thought..
