HA will sell them to OY !

just kidding, HA will add a non stop HNL/LAS flight in addition to the 1 stop HNL/LAS flight. The flights will be operated by B767 aircraft.
We cannot wait to get the 767 here in LAS !!!

As HAL discussed this in a previous message, Boyd needs the seats.

"Our CEO said it was a mutual decision to end the charters, because they were a money losing deal for us, and the charter companies wanted to pack people into the plane - something we won't be doing with the 767. We will be starting daily scheduled service HNL- LAS as soon as the charters end. Hopefully we can get a lot of those people with HA FF miles to stick with us."
