But at the newest lounge in Honolulu (HNL), none of the three will fly. Instead, you can only access the lounge if you’re staying at one of four resorts on the island of O’ahu. As …As reported by Jeffsetter, The Ko Olina Club Lounge opened earlier this month and is open to guests and timeshare owners staying at the Aulani Disney Resort and Spa, Beach Villas at Ko Olina, Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club or the Four Seasons Resort O‘ahu at Ko Olina.

A Delta Air Lines employee saw the boy was unable to stop him, Hogan continued. In airport security footage obtained by MPR News, the boy is shown crawling on the moving luggage conveyor belt.

The conveyor belt was stopped, but the boy was able to crawl onto another moving belt, which took him to a checked baggage screening area. There, airport police found the child, Hogan said.

According to Hogan, the boy was not injured.
