SunTrips Inc. of San Jose said Friday that it has been forced to cancel all of its trips to Hawaii beginning Oct. 1 because the vacation packager has not been able to find an airline to replace its regular carrier, Rich International Airways, which was grounded Sept. 2 by the Federal Aviation Administration.

An absolutely free tote bag will soon be mine, along with two free nights at the Gold River Resort Hotel & Casino in Laughlin, Nev.
