Former Couple Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff Travel Back From Hawaii Together (PHOTOS)

The cast of ;Dancing With the Stars was in Hawaii this week, soaking up the sun before Season 19 kicks off on September 15.

While we all got to ogle at their amazing beach bods, today we have something new to gawk over: The fact that once engaged DWTS pros Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy traveled back to Los Angeles together!

The two were photographed at LAX Airport — looking mighty tan, might we add ;— on August 21. While it's possible that the rest of the cast was right behind them, we couldn't help but notice that the former flames were total travel buddies.

But before we start thinking they're going to rekindle their past romance, let's remember that the dancing duo has been chummy for awhile now. They even danced together on Broadway in Forever Tango last summer.

Plus, Maks won't be returning to the ballroom this fall but Karina will be, so maybe they’re just clocking in some quality time before practice starts up.

Either way, these pros look fab! Click through the gallery to see more pics and tell us if you think they’re dating again in the comments.
