Actually Al, NW has increased service to HNL this year by making MSP-HNL a year-round flight. The flight will operate with a 747-200 in the winter/fall months, and a DC-10 in the spring/summer months.
I'll say the same thing that Scooter said...I'll believe NW cutting LAX-HNL when I see it. Maybe they'll cut one of the flights, but I don't see Northwest dropping both daily flights like that. What's your source, AC?

HP no longer serves Hawaii. DL DFW-HNL with a DC10 was cut come months ago. I remember reading a rather long FAQ to frequent fliers regarding the service reduction. I also however had not heard NW cutting LAX service.
All this reduction however, raises the question of whether paper airline TransPacific has a legitimate business plan: fly older DC10s from HNL to SEA, PDX, SFO, LAX, and SAN and couple cheap flights with hotel rooms in a package format. If they can keep their costs very low, well there will always be demand to get to Hawaii.
