With Aloha, ATA, Skybus, and now EOS going out of business i'm wondering how hawaiian is doing.... I don't think hawaiian will be gone any time soon, they seem to have a more extensive network with jets that can carry more people and cargo to make the trips more profitable while still charging a low price for tickets. With their recent airbus order i don't see them leaving any time soon but one never knows... so how is hawaiian doing?

Probably losing $$$$ like everyone else in the biz. By the way, just because you buy or sign a lease on
new equipment does NOT mean things are hunky-dorey.
Can you say Braniff....how about TWA buying Airbuses?....may I add one you mentioned...Skybus? I think they
had a few more birds on order.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

Short answer - we are doing OK. I'm sure we will have some financial stumbles like every other carrier out there today, but we are well positioned to hang on and continue our steady slow growth into the international sector. Since Aloha and ATA shut down, fares have returned to somewhat more stable levels, and we should be able to get some reasonable revenue going again. It's a difficult financial environment out there, but I have never heard our CEO blow smoke up our 'okoles', and he has said this week that we are still in a position to continue growing and remain profitable into the future. I think he and the rest of our management team are doing a pretty good job keeping us viable, afloat, and ready to grow.
One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.
