Does anyone know when the last HA DC10 flight will be and if so, what route?

Thanks,
Matt

I am not sure so don't take my full word on this, but i know Hawaiian just added some new routes to Sacremento and Ontario CA and i think those are on the DC-10's and they will be the DC-10's for some time. I think early next year all the mainland flights will be 767's. But I could be wrong.

The Sacramento and Ontario routes will be operated on their 767s.

There are still several DC10s in the fleet, in fact the DC10 is still used on several designated 767 pairings when needed due to mx scheduling needs, schedule disruptions and so forth. (SAN, flight 10 and 9 out of HNl-LAX)

The DC10s will be active throughout the first quarter of 2003, and LAS or ANC will probably be the last markets due to the charter contracts in those locations.

Ontario will be served, at least initially, with DC-10s. Sacramento gets the 767 from the start.

I have no idea but I won't miss those when they leave PDX. We handle HA on the ramp here and I can honestly say that those ex-AA DC-10s are horrible to work. By far the worst aircraft I've had the misfortune to have to work.

Can't wait to work those shiny new 763ERs.
It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.
