Hawaiian Airlines Announces Wide-Body Fleet Expansion
Tuesday February 14, 8:00 am ET

HONOLULU, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hawaiian Airlines (Amex: HA; PCX) announced today that it has signed letters of intent to acquire four additional Boeing 767-300 aircraft, which will bring its long-haul fleet to a total of 18 of the wide-body aircraft. The company expects to introduce these aircraft into service after necessary modification work has been completed. The expected dates of introduction and the additional services these aircraft will operate will be announced at a later date.

"This expansion is great news for our company, our employees -- especially those we will be able to recall from furlough -- and for Hawaii tourism," said Mark Dunkerley, president and chief executive officer.

The four 767-300 aircraft Hawaiian will acquire were previously operated by Delta Airlines, which rejected its leases on the aircraft in conjunction with its ongoing Chapter 11 reorganization. Each will be overhauled and outfitted in Hawaiian's standard interior configuration, including 18 seats in First Class and 242 seats in Coach. The letters of intent are subject to certain closing conditions.

Since this is Hawaiian we are talking about, I assume these are really B-767-300ERs, and not B-767-300s like the artical says. DL flys both types.

How many other airplanes, and what types will DL return to lease holders?

Has TZ given up on trying to find GE equipped B-767-300ERs? Or have they settled on completing "D" checks on all of their L-1011-500?

Suppose they have learned from their Chapter 11 experience that it does not necessarily make sense to order shiny new planes every year. Their 767s are mostly quite young, and there shouldn't be any real need for them to order the 787 or 350 anytime soon - and there will be quite a few 767s available in the coming years.

Still, if it happens their choice will depend on how the market itself has and will develop. Stronger growth will be a plus for the slightly larger A350, less growth for the 787. And we shouldn't forget that quite some bc exit financing came from Boeing Capital IIRC.

I thought these 763's that Delta gave back were non -ER versions. Can anyone confirm this? I think they are all sitting in VCV right now.

That was my thought, too, but I don't know for sure. The 4230nm range of the non-ERs should be plenty for their west coast destinations. It could still free-up ERs for longer range destinations.

So, any ideas if the expansion will be on the west coast to already served markets, new markets in the west, or new markets in the midwest, south, or east coast?

I've heard talk of JFK and ORD, but I personally think you'll see more asia routes (KIX, NGO, HKG, NRT-probably no way they'll get slots). Or MEL is a possibility. I know some people who went to Australia last summer on HA from SEA and just transferred in HNL, said it was a decent flight and better than transferring in LAX, so maybe they have a small niche in Transpac. flights.

I don't think that this is an either/or situation. I'm pretty sure that the latest from ATA is that one of their 5 L1011s (the non-500, 194AT) is being retired Feb. 28, as it has the old engines (-22B) which are not widely available. Two of the -500s should be good to go for some time, having just been D-checked (one of those, 163AT, should be finishing up the D-check and back shortly if it isn't already). The other two have some time before this will become an issue for them. I believe that if ATA can find one or more 767-300ERs at a price that works for them, they will lease them rather than D-check any more L1011s.

Why, prices on 767's in the used marked should be headed down as they are retired from other carriers in chap 11....like Delta.

Not all that many 763ER's on the market ...
But if ATA ever lands any, your assumption will at that point be correct!  pessimist

HA is being smart here. Most normal folks are concerned about the fare more than anything else. The non -ER 767-300 planes are perfect for HA's west coast flights, and I'm sure the price was right. Who needs brand new iron when there are excellent planes on the secondary market? Besides, 4000+ nm is still a very long range. We have just gotten accustomed to seeing super long range planes being made by Boeing and Airbus.

From the looks of it, the 763 works well for HA.

HNL (21°19'07"N 157°55'21"W) LAX (33°56'33"N 118°24'29"W) 2221 nm
HNL (21°19'07"N 157°55'21"W) LAS (36°04'49"N 115°09'08"W) 2400 nm
HNL (21°19'07"N 157°55'21"W) NRT (35°45'53"N 140°23'11"E) 3318 nm
HNL (21°19'07"N 157°55'21"W) ORD (41°58'43"N 87°54'17"W) 3688 nm
Boeing 767-300 Range 4230 nm
HNL (21°19'07"N 157°55'21"W) JFK (40°38'23"N 73°46'44"W) 4330 nm
HNL (21°19'07"N 157°55'21"W) SYD (33°56'46"S 151°10'38"E) 4403 nm

Heck, most trans-Atlantic runs are less than 4000 nm!

Hawaiian is getting 4 767's with G.E. engines and not the P&W engines that all of our other 767's have. As our CEO has told the employees in a memo today, beggars can't be choosers!

Absolutely! Although the redeye to LAX has already been reinstated. Currently it runs just 3 or 4 days per week but with the addition of 4 more airplanes to the fleet, look for that flight to go daily as well as increasing service on HNL-SEA double daily and a daily SAN-OGG and a few surprises thrown in.

This is GREAT news for HA. To all of our furlough employees out there, welcome back!!!

It will be good to finally see SAN-OGG go daily year-round. Given the fare structure and loads on the daily SAN-HNL service, I wonder if a second daily is not out of the question.

As far as "surprises" go, I wonder if HA will make a go of the Asian market.

That really is a strategy that HA should try to exploit more often, HNL is a nice stopping point on a trans-pac flight, for those of us who can't deal with 10-12 flights. This would work well with their existing route system from US West Coast to HA Islands and beyond to Australia/Asia etc. Incremental revenue never hurts.

this is awsome news! hopefully we'll see added service to SAN either an additional frequency to HNL or a year round SAN-OGG flight.

but here's a question for those i'm sure has answers for...

Hawaii in general has great loads to/from: asia, south pacific, and US/Canada...but what about Mexico and S. America? I remember years back (i'm thinking more in the late 80's) that i saw a Mexicana DC-10 in HNL (gold stripes along the fusulage w/ black titles). Did MX have non-stop service to HNL? was it a continuation flight to Asia/Oz?

Will HA ever return to GUM (Guam) or AKL?

pretty much the possibilities are endless. i love working our SAN and SMF flights cause HA is there already when we land and i get to see Pualani!

As far as "surprises" go, I wonder if HA will make a go of the Asian market.

I can't say that I'd be too surprised to see HA try to make a jump in the Japanese market. Given the vast amount of traffic between Japan and Hawaii, I can't imagine that they wouldn't be able to at least pull off NRT or KIX a few times a week. It'll certainly be interesting to see where they end up deploying these aircraft, and if they do indeed use them to open up new markets.

55 HAVIK747 : Does anyone know what specific a/c HA is obtaining? rumour is new route HNL-oak as well
56 N1120A : First, no airplane currently built or in planning will be able to make it out of SAN and down to the South Pacific, but the SAN market lives close en
57 Laxintl : In your original post above you stated "to asia/pacific" traffic, and that is what I was responding to. Certainly the majority of South Pacific traff
58 Tuffer : How about service to YYC? Couple flights a week might work....not too much competition only Harmony with their 2 weekly flights in the winter.
59 HALFA : It's actually no surprise that HA has intentions of starting service to Asia. They are aggressively seeking route authority to begin service to China
60 Dia77 : DEN-HNL seems like a logical move for HA. With only one daily flight on that route, I imagine that there is definitely room for competition.
61 Post contains images GoCOgo : Hey, man, I'm dreaming the same thing, but it ain't happenin', I'm sorry to say. Though with an expanded CO codeshare and some appropriate advertisin
62 Hawaiian717 : There are actually 4 ex-LTU 767s at Hawaiian, N583HA to N587HA.
63 AA767400 : Can an airline reconfigure a 767 with the new Boeing interior? I have not seen anything on it as of yet.
64 Post contains links HA_DC9 : Today's Honolulu Advertiser states that HA will spend $31.8 million to buy these jets. I would have figured that they would have assumed the leases th
65 Wedgetail737 : Yeah! I would be surprised if HA opened the OAK-HNL route. Don't forget that Suntrips also does OAK-HNL with 757's, along with AQ and, soon, TZ. I've
66 777fan : $7.9M a piece?! That sounds like a great deal to me. Best of luck to HA - they've certainly impressed me with their interisland service.
67 LTU932 : That is correct. Here are the first delivery dates of these aircraft, along with the younger N581LF:N584HA (24258/255), delivered to LTU Süd as D-AM

73 HALFA : When the 4 Ex-LTU aircraft came to HA, they all had leather seats in Y class, and still do. Seats in F class are leather too. Aloha, HALFA
74 LTU932 : Ah OK, now I see. It must probably have been some kind of cabin refurbishing that was done when they were still at LTU, most likely when they were in

77 Unicorn : A significant number of the original 767-300ER fleet were never delivered direct from Boeing. The aircraft were delivered from the manufacturer to AWA
