Prior to shutting down ATA, the OAK schedule included HNL (2X daily), OGG (2X daily), KOA (1X daily), LIH (1X daily) and ITO (5X weekly)...or something like that. Most of the flights were operated by 73H aircraft, but OAK-HNL and OAK-OGG had seen sporadic 753 equipment. I think one of the HNL flights continued through OAK to MDW.

It was very sad to see the service discontinued, along with AQ and even Suntrips.

They also flew ONT-HNL, after HA called it quits on that route. I'm a bit surprised we haven't seen AS try that one yet. Maybe it'll come later this year, or next... Otherwise there's always WN!


Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!

There was also a daily PHX (operated by B752s and the occasional B753) and LAX flight. Funny, a few months prior to their shutdown, ATA was sending the ex NW DC-10s to HNL from LAX on scheduled passenger flights (over the B757/B738), and even subbed an L-1011 on one occasion. Although the L-1011 flight faced some long delays, how lucky those passengers were (in my opinion of course   ) to get on a Tristar on a scheduled flight in the US in 2008!

Did they ever fly their L1011 that way?

I was lucky enough to get to fly the L1011 to CUN one time, oh what a flight!

Yep, the L-1011s were a common sight in Hawaii until 9/11. Then they were used for military charters, and were occasionally seen in HNL. The last time I saw their L-1011 was in January 2008, as I mentioned in reply 3.

For a brief period, ATA routinely flew one or two of the ex-NW DC-10-30's into SEA on those MAC flights.

At the time of shutdown, ATA operated:

TZ4587 PHX-HNL
TZ4586 HNL-PHX
TZ4585 PHX-OGG
TZ4584 OGG-PHX

TZ4409 LAS-HNL
TZ4406 HNL-LAS
TZ4403 LAS-OGG
TZ4404 OGG-LAS

TZ4501 OAK-LIH
TZ4502 LIH-OAK
TZ4507 OAK-KOA
TZ4506 KOA-OAK
TZ4527 OAK-ITO
TZ4524 ITO-OAK
TZ4621 OAK-HNL
TZ4622 HNL-OAK
TZ4625 OAK-HNL
TZ4626 HNL-OAK
TZ4627 OAK-OGG
TZ4628 OGG-OAK

TZ4753 LAX-HNL
TZ4754 HNL-LAX
TZ4755 LAX-HNL
TZ4758 HNL-LAX
TZ4761 LAX-OGG
TZ4762 OGG-LAX

Flights out of PHX and LAS were operated by 757s, OAK usually 738s, and LAX flights were a mix of both.

TZ4650/4651 (HNL-ONT-HNL) was ended the first week of January 2008.

Quoting UAL747DEN (Reply 4):

Yes, four flights were operated with L10s (N163AT and N162AT), from January 4-6, 2008:
TZ4755 LAX-HNL
TZ4754 HNL-LAX

The same routes were operated by the DC-10s (N702TZ, N705TZ and N706TZ) from December 26-January 8, 2008.



ATA - an honestly different airline.

TZ4524 ITO-OAK

I flew on those flights about a year before TZ's sudden and sad demise, with a WN codeshare to MDW to and from OAK. Good flight, but the lack of snacks except for purchase was upsetting to my stomach (particularly on the way back, where there was no decent food after security at ITO).

Do you have a list from the 'glory days?' (i.e. 2003-2004)? My recollection was the network to Hawaii - like the rest of the network - was quite different then.

Does anybody remeber when ATA flew L-1011s for America West from PHX and LAS to HNL just after HP got rid of their 747s? That was the one and only time I was ever on an L-1011

I don't have specifics, but it was primarily L-1011s from SFO and LAX to HNL and OGG on behalf of Pleasant Hawaiian with short-lived twice weekly -500 flights from ORD and JFK to HNL. There was also the 757 PHX-HNL service which was a mainstay for TZ.



35 years of American Trans Air/ATA Airlines, 1973-2008. A great little airline that will not be soon forgotten.
