Hawaiian Airlines is the latest airline to host on-board entertainment that's not an in-flight movie.

Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu, a San Francisco-based Hawaiian hula school, performed a traditional Hawaiian dance on a San Francisco to Honolulu flight on July 14.

The airline played the requisite hula music over the plane's speakers as the performers rose from their seats and joined the "flash mob" in performing to "Ke Aloha," a Hawaiian song, followed by "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" (get it?).

This is perhaps the most mellow of all the flash mobs we've seen recently (though that's essentially the point).

Others have simply drawn more attention to themselves while at the airport, from a breakout dance party at Beirut Airport's duty free shopping area, to WORLD ORDER's show of support for post-tsunami Japan, to Air Canada's sponsored Christmas extravaganza at the Vancouver Airport back in December.

Check out the official Hawaiian Airlines flash mob video below, followed by a confused traveler's PDA version.

You know, I think the entertainment the flash mobs provide is fun and all but........ why dont they really do something constructive, Like.......meeting and cleaning up state parks that are closing , pick up trash off our freeways and roads. Clean up a trashed neighborhood. Maybe clean up a neighborhood eyesore. How about helping disabled, handicapped, poor and elderly that need it at their home and yards. Voluntering at schools, See it needing done, organize to get it done. There are all kinds of things that they, we, one and all could be doing to help the world we live in. Thats time well spent and just think of the benefits.

Mahalo nui loa! Hana Ho..Memories return to me, on the crest of a wave, though my minds eye, if you should search too, what will you find? Through these young dancers I find old Hawaii nei. I remember Honolulu Waikiki=shimmering or sparkling waters, white sandy beaches, clean and unspoiled, bungalow's on the beaches at Queen Surf, no high rises --- the Kodak show where Tutu's and Aunties entertained all of this and all of what was old Hawaii, the Hawaii of yesterday lives in these Mele Hula---Mahalo Nui....
