"Pack to Fly" is a term heard often in Kauai restaurants and stores, usually referring to the packaging of food being taken on an airplane. Most times, this food will be presented as omiyage (o-mee-yah-gay), the Japanese tradition of gifts given to co-workers, family, and friends upon returning from a trip. Omiyage has been adopted by Hawaii and Kauai locals and usually involves food. Anyone can take on this custom by buying and giving locally-made favorites from the places that they visit.
