Hawaiian Airlines announced today that they will begin new service between Kahului on the island of Maui and Las Vegas commencing on October 3rd.
This new nonstop service will be offered twice per week operating as HA flight #32 on Monday and Thursday departing OGG at 0800 and arriving LAS at 1635. HA flight #31 will operate on Sunday and Wednesday and depart LAS at 6:25pm and arrive OGG at 2125.
This will be the 5th city on the US Mainland to receive nonstop service from Maui. HA already flies from OGG to SEA, PDX, OAK, and will start nonstop service to SAN next Thursday 6/17.

Where will Flight 32 go after arriving in LAS? Also, where is Flight 31 in-bound from? Will the OGG-SAN flight be seasonal? Any news about HA going to PVG or PEK? Hainan Airlines supposed is scheduled to offer flight from China but haven't heard anything recently about them in the local media. May be Linda Lingle can ask Hainan Airlines to lease HA for this route (plane and crew) until Haina Airlines can service the route (or better yet give the route to HA).
Has HA decided to keep the 767-300s that the A330-200 are intended to replace for new routes? Is it ture that the 767-300 leased from Boeing directly (the ones with 777-style interiors) will not get winglets? What will HA do with the four 767-300 EM planes? They are getting up there in age.
Mahalo in advance for any scoops. Nice to see you folks doing well.

Quoting lahaina (Reply 1): Where will Flight 32 go after arriving in LAS? Also, where is Flight 31 in-bound from?
I would assume that this will be the rotation until Oct 31:
HA06 (HNL-LAS) - HA31 (LAS-OGG)
HA32 (OGG-LAS) - HA05 (LAS-HNL)
From Nov 01, there will be 4 flights to LAS and 3 returning on Mondays. The rotation should remain the same, since those are the only flights that can do that turn. I'm not sure if they will park the extra aircraft as LAS for a day or ferry it out since Tuesday only has 2 flights.

There's a lot of flux in our schedule as of now. I think mangement is waiting to see where the best loads are before committing the additional aircraft anywhere on a permanent basis. That said, here's what little I know:
For now, yes, it's seasonal. If the loads are good (and we don't need the aircraft elsewhere) it may come back on a permanent basis later.

Most of the 767's are going to stick around. How many stay will be determined by lease rates, and whether we need the planes for growth or not (that is, if the economy picks up or not).

All but two of the Boeing leased airplanes got winglets. The two that didn't (591 & 593) may be the first to be returned. But as I said above, everything depends on how the market goes over the next year or two. The ex-DL planes (EM's) are old, and from what I've heard may only have two or three years left before they're put out to pasture. They've served us well, but are getting a little long in the tooth.
One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.
