If you are able, go now.  The lava is still flowing into the ocean and no one can predict how long it will continue to do so.  If you miss this opportunity, it might be years till the next flow.

Great report. Gives me the itch to go back to TBI.
Definitely write to UA and ask why they didn't get the meals from Oahu Kosher.

My email to UA:

On the flight from HNL to EWR we received kosher meals from Regal
Catering.  I am very grateful that UA offers the option of a kosher meal
and thank you for continuing to do so.  However, I do have a question
about the kosher meal option.  This past February (on the same flight),
we received kosher meals from Oahu Kosher which were absolutely
delicious.  This is in complete contrast to the barely edible meal we
received from Regal on this flight.  I am writing to ask why UA did not
use Oahu Kosher to provide kosher meals from HNL to EWR on this flight
and ask that in the future you please consider providing kosher meals
from Oahu Kosher rather than Regal or another company.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

The response I received:

I'm sorry our kosher meal service didn't meet your expectations.

You wanted enjoyable food on your flight, we let you down. I'll pass
along your feedback to our Food Services teams in Honolulu. We know this
is important and we really try to provide individual attention for these
meals. I sincerely apologize we missed the mark. We'll try our best to
ensure this doesn't happen again.
 
We are grateful for your loyalty as a MileagePlus member. We appreciate
you chose United for your travel and we hope to see you on board soon,
allowing us the opportunity to provide the service you expect.

Best Regards,
What do you do after your dreams come true?
