Hawaiian Airlines announced today that they will add 31 seasonal round trip flights between HNL and SYD, BNE, and AKL during the busy fall holiday season (spring break down under) in September and October. This is in addition to the previously announced seasonal increase in service to SYD and BNE set to begin next month and last through the beginning of June.
This increase in flying will add about 8800 air seats to HNL.

Dang HA continues to explosively expand. I don't know what they're doing right, but if it is making money and creating demand for more seats, then more power to them!

Maybe a flight from HNL to NRT

They're like the American version of EK, but on a smaller scale (expansion-wise, anyway)

I am concerned. As a former paratrooper I keep returning to "A bridge too far". Is HA growing faster than might be sustainable in a 100+ dlr/brl economy?

No, it is simply meeting outward demand from a rich Australia which hasn't had a recession.

In the great scheme of things it isn't a large increase in flights and it is very very focussed.

If they're doing well, I imagine they'll add a few flights for Christmas/January which is the big holiday season down here.

Should be good news for Hawaii's economy too, since that is typically low-demand time from the mainland.

HA has great interest in several cities that currently have limited or no service to Honolulu. As more new planes arrive here, more new routes will be announced. The next route announcement will be amazing! My lips are sealed!

I thought you super-sophisticated Aussies didn't like our inferior US airlines? Or at least that's what you bray on about in nearly every post you make.

@777STL
We in Australia expect hot meals, included baggage and IFE on flights of such durations. (SYD/BNE to Hawaii is similar to Chicago to Hawaii).

Hawaiian Airlines is a higher service quality airline than other US carriers, and they do meet those standards on these nine hour flights.

Which is why they are thrashing Jetstar on the Sydney route, and have outperformed Air Australia on the Brisbane route, and have promising forward bookings to Auckland.

Winter - July - is a very good season for any tropical destination, but not the only one. Christmas/January is great, too, and what is now called "spring break" - for a very limited and very specific time, as these increases are.

I might wonder why Hawaiian isn't beefing up for July, but it could be aircraft availability or whatever CPA deals they have with the big travel agencies.

Oh, bless, K'man, taking nothing away from Hawaiian it isn't hard to outperform Air Australia - one of the most incompetently run airlines in the history of civil aviation. Flight Centre would only book with them if the pax signed a waiver against liability and the COO had no airline experience - he had worked for his family's catering company.

I know JQ is sold out in StarClass on July 21 HNL-SYD and the surrounding days are nearly full too. HA is also sold out on numerous days according to their website.
