Hello all,

I am planing a trip to Los Angeles in April for a wedding I have to attend. Being in the area I have always wanted to travel to Hawaii. I have found a very reasonable price to Hawaii from Los Angeles on Hawaiian Airlines. The flight is on a DC-10. Can anyone give me any info on this airline ie. safety, service, etc.

Thanks very much.

Ian.

The service is quite good. HA is in the process of replacing DC-10 with 767-300 ERs. So your flight is subject to change to a 767-300. The service is usually very good. I find the crews much nicer than DL, UA, and AA. I think you will enjoy it.

Hawaiian is one of the country's older airlines, its first flight was November 11, 1929 (as Inter-Island Airways). Their safety record is exemplary; no revenue passengers have died on Hawaiian.

Service is very good. They have one several awards and are often highly rated in various customer surveys performed by various publications.

You can find out quite a bit of information by looking through their web site at http://www.hawaiianair.com.

I would like to correct Hawaiian717 as to the fact that not ONE person has ever died on Hawaiian(revenue or not). You will not find a more wonderful airline that has not only established the Worlds Safety Recrord, but has established a niche as Hawaii's home airline. Come to our islands and enjoy what this American Paradise has to offer.
Aloha! E komo mai!

Adair -- interesting that you too found the great deals from LAX to HNL to be pretty hard to overlook! I'm flying in Feb. with the same deal. Big grin (For those of you wondering, I think it's something like $315 rount trip from LAX.)

It was also nice/intriguing to know of Hawaiian's plans to switch to 767s from DC-10s. -- thanks Lahaina.  Smile

Clipperhawaii,

I can't quite remember Hawaiian's safety record. I think I read something about they may have had a fatal incident with a DC-3 during a training flight, I can't remember and I don't have the book to check (try Kennedy's Hawaiian Air, I think it might have been described in there; I checked it out of the Hawaii Kai public library a few years ago).

Hey David, You are right! There was a training flight over at Port Allen, Kauai. They clipped a tree and landed but nothing that could not be rebuilt. Also, December 7th 1941, aircraft No.9 had bullet holes in it while it was parked at John Rodgers.
Over in ITO a Convair overran the runway with pax on board on a wet runway(imagine that). This accident was as close as HAL has come to destroying a aircraft with pax on board. There have been other ground incidents but lucky for HAL, no fatalities.
Take care David!
Aloha!
P.S. Try a caramel frappuccino, its better!

Yeah those incidents were the ones I was thinking of.

With regards to No.9, the version of the story I read was that the plane was taxiing when it was hit. And the second pass they hit the plane again, this time they hit the fire extinguisher, putting out the fire.

And the ironic bit to the story is that No.9 was later sold to a Japanese airline.

Will have to try the caramel one sometime, it's not like there's a shortage of Starbucks' in San Diego. :P
