Big step for Mokulele. With Republic behind them, I'm sure they leveraged their existing relationship with United to make this happen.

Also helps with the interisland role Aloha played for United, which was never fully replaced by UA's redirecting traffic onto Hawaiian Air.

Mokulele Airlines Says 'Welcome Aboard' to United Airlines' Customers
Tuesday July 14, 2009

HONOLULU--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mokulele Airlines is now offering United customers a convenient way to travel between the Hawaiian Islands and United's destinations around the world. Through a new ticketing and baggage agreement, customers can more easily and conveniently book connecting travel on the two airlines and check luggage directly to their final destination.

"This new agreement provides a convenient option for our customers who are booking a ticket and checking a bag between Hawaii and the more than 200 destinations United flies worldwide," says Kevin Knight, United Airlines senior vice president -- Planning.

The interline ticketing and baggage agreement is available for flights between the Hawaiian Islands and United's worldwide destinations, including those in Europe, Asia, and South America.

This expands my theory that UA is not only unoffended by the F9 deal, but is actually involved somehow.

It is an important step for Mokulele because this will make it easier for pax to book flights on them, but this is still just a normal interline agreement between 2 airlines. Having Republic may have helped because they already have the experience and the contacts with the other airlines to work out interline agreements, but I doubt anything was leveraged to complete it.

So they now have agreements with:

UA
CO
Qantas

Will the codeshare lead to FF program agreements as well. Don't they have a FF agreement with AS?

They seem to be positioning themselves pretty well on the Interisland Market.

With being capitalized by RAH, could they potentially set up some Hawaii-Mainland flight 5-10 years down the road using either F9 or another company out of places like SAN and OAK (or other airports that Aloha/ATA left) and use those places to set up connections with UA and CO?

Sounds kinda dumb, just thinkin out loud

It's good to know that there is officially no chance now that UA is meddling with F9.

This is not a codeshare. Just a normal interline agreement. However, that doesn't mean a FFP agreement cannot be worked out.

With Allegiant entering the Hawaii market soon it will be interesting to see how much of an impact they will have over time. They have been pretty successful so far.

Yes, AS frequent fliers earn 500 minimum miles per segment on Mokulele.

No. If you want miles, why would you fly go!? UA does not have a FF agreement with go!. UA codeshares with HA and WP and they are the only ones you can earn miles on when flying interisland.

No. This is a standard interline agreement, not a codeshare.

Can someone please clarify Hawaiian and Island Air's relationship to United. This is my overview of it, please adjust whatever information is inaccurate:

Hawaiian*
United flight numbers are attached to flights, mileage plus members can earn and redeem miles (+500mi/segment earn, -5000 ow -10000 rt redeem). Baggage and interline services are provided.

Island Air
United flight numbers are attached to flights, mileage plus members can earn and redeem miles (+500mi/segment earn, -5000 ow -10000 rt redeem). Baggage and interline services are provided.

Mokulele
United flight numbers will be attached to flights, Baggage and interline services provided. Unsure of mileage plus members status.

Go!
United does not offer any services through this airline.

Pacific Wings
United does not offer any services through this airline

Aloha Air Cargo
Does United offer cargo interline through Aloha?

*Please note that United mileage plus members have a better reward redemption level on Hawaiian than even Hawaiian Miles members. For UA, they redeem @ 5k HA 7.5K one way.

That is the only thing provided by this agreement. It is not a codeshare. Mokulele flights will show up in UA's reservation system only with Mokulele flight numbers.

Thanks Ha763. Just for giggles I travel.yahoo.com OGG-ORD. United does not show any good connections with Mokulele for the date I searched. Came up with all Hawaiian's flights connections with a cost $1197. Mokulele does offer the flight on its aircraft connecting to the UA flight for $2814 via a US Airways flight number attached. Outbound August 15th.

Ouch.
