With winglets now available for the 737-700, you figure Aloha, with their long segment flights over the Pacifc would be the exact perfect fit for them. Any word if they will get them, or are their 73Gs not new enough to have the modifications built into the wings?

cheers



They're not handing trophies out today

I don't know about the winglets but the "First Class Menu" sounds like gourmet to me...mh...mh..mh

"Aloha's First Class service features Hawaii Regional Cuisine created by award-winning Master Chef Alan Wong. While most airlines have cut back on food service, Aloha continues to provide an enhanced level of service to all Coach Class passengers, including complimentary mai-tai cocktail, oshibori hot towel, free headsets and movie, a delicious meal with an Island flair, and fresh-baked cookies served with milk"

Quite rare to see these days anything but …the EVERLASTING (frozen chicken/beef)… THING

what is the distance between the 2 cities? and is it very tight time for the -700 to do this run? ( as in the range is just enough or has slightly more than needed?)

Oh yeah, that's quite interesting that Aloha is coming to Vancouver. Of course, I will go out and take some good photos of this little modern jet.

Aloha's inflight service is excellent and they along with Hawaiian Airlines bring the Aloha Spirit to the mainland.

The Service on AQ will definitely be better then AC.
The Aloha F/A's will be much much friendlier then Ac
F/A's.

-800's has no problem for YVR-HNL...

Air Pacific flies 738 between these 2 cities. May be it shouldn't be a problem.

AQ has 737-700s and if it was going to be a problem they wouldn't be doing it.

Anyone know the schedule? Last time I checked it wasn't up on the website.

Any chance of Aloha heading south to SYD or BNE?

AQ won't be going that far (SYD or BNE). They're at the practical limit of the 737-700 with the six hour flight HNL - YVR. The 8+ hour flight to SYD is way beyond what they'll do.

Hawaiian is a possibility for those routes, but not for a while - until they get all their 767 up and running.

I thought I heard something about HNL-ANC flights this summer using the 73G's, seems like that would be stretching it a bit but maybe it is actually less distance than HNL-YVR since ANC is farther west.

That would be excellent HNL - ANC! Go Aloha if you do that! I would like to hear if that is going to happen.

Boeing has announced devt of a longer range 73GX. 73G with wing of the 738, a la BBJ, for airlines. Will have TA capability.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Yes, AQ will be doing one weekly ANC for Hawaii-Alaska Vacations because Hawaiian is already doing four per week and didn't have enough planes for the requested fifth trip.

After getting hot and steamy on the Hawaian beaches for a couple of weeks, what better place to chill down a bit - other than Alaska - one would dream off?

Obviously Aloha is catering for the Alaskan Cruise-Ship Season at both ends Vancouver/Anchorage. There are rumors in Vancouver that the Cruise-Ship Season, that starts this year as early as April 29 (11 days to go) will see a significant capacity increase with the arrival of a new cruise-line.

The Norwegian Wind will be the first ship to head-up north this year, and Star Princess at 109,000-tons and 2,600 passengers, will be the largest cruise ship to ever visit Alaska. Holland America introduces, its New Amsterdam, a 780-foot, 61,000-ton ship that carries 1,380 passengers.

And get this … a planed Vancouver startup airline - MY Airways could soon start service to Honolulu using Boeing 757!

O boy is gettin' hot in here … if I could only save some money …

Cheers  Smokin cool

We're using the DC-10-10 on the HNL - ANC route. It will probably be one of our last routes with that plane before we switch to the 767, due to our contractual requirements for number of seats available on our charter flights.

(All our ANC service is charter; we fly for Alaska-Hawaii Vacations).

Does anyone knows how many DC-10-10 Aloha still operates? This is the only foto in Airliners.net database featuring an Aloha DC-10 tail in the background !

Aloha does not operate DC-10s, and only operated them for a short period of time, if I recall correctly. Aloha also does not operate 767s and never has. Aloha's current fleet consists of 737-200s and 737-700s.

Hawaiian, however, operates both DC-10s and 767s.

Well… accordingly to HAL 's post above Aloha will operate direct charter flights this summer from Honolulu to Anchorage using DC-10-10 and later on B767!!

Very interesting , are they leasing those aircraft from Hawaian or from someone else than?

Cheers

Aloha operated 1 DC-10-30 briefly in the 80's, under the 'Aloha Pacific' name. If memory serves, it operated HNL-Taipei, but I may be wrong.

The service was shortlived and the DC-10 left the fleet soon after.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
25 HAL : To clarify matters; I fly for Hawaiian. We fly up to four charters a week ANC - HNL using DC-10's. Since we don't have enough airplanes to cover what
26 Penguinflies : Here is some more info on the AQ DC-10 venture Launched in 1984, AQ leased 1 DC-10 from UA to fly to Japan (condition to govt approval) via Taipei and
