IMHO, I think that LGB will diversify the 12 slots as best as possible to as many as possible. HA, for example, could go with 3 more. Running side-by-side IAH-LGB-HNL and DEN-LGB-OGG and back. This allows pax from IAH and DEN to LGB and then transfer pax going from IAH to get on OGG flight and vice...
