Hawaiian Airlines announced it's first quarter results today, a consolidated net income profit of $23.5 million, with operating income of $35.9 million. This compares to a $19.9 million first quarter loss from a year ago.
This is more good news for a company that was also named best Airline in America recently by the Airline Quality Survey.

I'm sure the demise of AQ and ATA has tremendously helped out HA! That said, still great to hear of a US airline doing well!

Congrats to HA! Despite the departure of AQ and TZ, those are still very solid numbers in this day and age.

I'm sure the decline in fuel costs helped significantly.

Excellent results! A true testament to the hard work of Hawaiian's employees and its excellent management team. Mr Dunkerly has arguably been the best airline CEO of the past 5 years.

Who said flying only to/from Hawai'i couldn't make money.....in a Recession....in the 1st Quarter.....with complimentary meals for all......highly paid employees....and staffing over FAA minimums....AND an interisland fare war!!

-Aloha!

Long live HA! Go, guys! If I could, I'd love to fly HA to the islands.


Finally made it to an airline mecca!

Quoting HALFA (Thread starter):
This is more good news

Excellent! I'm very happy to hear about another airline in the black. Well done.

Who has made a profit (besides HA) in 1Q2009? F9 had an operating profit... but overall a loss. Who else had a clear profit? I'm curious to know both domestic and international airlines. (Its good to hear some positive economic news.)  Smile

Great job, HA!

It may have helped increase revenue, but not necessarily profit. Profit, particularly in these poor economic conditions and when tourist arrivals into the islands is down about 20 percent, reflects good management, employee dedication and partnership between management and labor.

I am sure that it helped but it didn't seem to help most larger U.S. Carriers.

I believe Jet Blue and Air Tran.

Didn't Allegiant made a profit too? Another thing worth noting, HA is one of the last US carriers to provide foods for economy class passengers between HI and mainland US, so much for nickel-and-diming from legacy carriers.

Good news for Hawaiian Airlines, though i guess the lost of some competition has helped them directly. Though, considering what aircraft they have on order and some of their plans for the long-term, a good result and hopefully they can keep the succes going.

Seems like the legacy airlines should taken notice of Allegiant and Hawaiian Airlines! lol

Halfa, thanks for the info, very interesting to see profits these days. Well done Hawaiian !

In fact what helps is the fact that they have good hedging! Instead of paying additional expense as mostly airlines, their fuel hedge financial expense was just US$ 1 million.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Good going Hawaiian!!!!! It's nice to see a few of us made money this quarter. The only other airline besides us (Airtran Airways) was Jetblue. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going.
