Is an Israeli allowed to leave Israel motzei chag and arrive in America on what is second day chag in America?

The flight would have a stopover in LAX (which I've read isn't an issue), but arriving in Honolulu and leaving the airport on second day chag may be an issue. The question seems to boil down to whether Honolulu is a yishuv with Jews. Seeing as almost no Jews live in Honolulu, is one permitted to leave the airport that day?

    There are definitely Jews in Honolulu. Why do they need to be a majority to have a local Minhag? If he made Honolulu a stopover on the way to the Big Island then you might have something to talk about.

  • IF there is a problem at all, then it seems that the problem occurs already while in flight. Technically, once the plane is in the air, he has left Israel and is now "chutz la'aretz". Which begs the question if one is allowed to make such a flight in the first place.

    @DanF No, the issue is only when you reach a settlement. There is no local custom in the air as it's uninhabited.

    @DanF It wouldn't be the first time Artscroll left out opinions it doesn't like for whatever reason.
