The first family's Christmas vacation to Hawaii in 2013 may have cost about $8 million. Of that total, at least $316,000 was for the Secret Service.
But the real cost is from Air Force One. It takes over $210,000 per hour to operate the plane, and the Hawaii trip took 36.9 hours of flight. That adds up to more than $7.7 million dollars.
