Fri Oct 31, 2003 7:08 am

Aloha's routing used to be YVR-HNL-RAR with a 73NG. I'm guessing that they're simply extending that route to PPG.

This should help, although Yahoo news has a later correction to the time of the return flight:

Thanks for the link.

HNL PPG RAR makes more sense as there is no competition on the HNL RAR flights anyway, so wht is a short stop? Otherwise if they had done HNL RAR PPG, then Hawaiian airlines would clearly have the advantage.

Problem is flights between HNL and PPG on Hawaiian tend to be heavily booked so I wonder how that would affect AQs RAR flights (stopping in PPG).

I'm a bit out of my depth here, because it's been a while since I lived in the South Pacific.

I was suprised when Aloha added Rarotonga. I could see some local traffic from the islands to Honolulu, although most Cook Islanders would graviate to New Zealand.

And I wouldn't think there's a huge amount of tourist traffic from Honolulu to Rarotonga.

I could easily be wrong.

However, since Pago-Pago and the American Samoas are US territory I can see why there's a lot of traffic to/from there - many Federal government employees.

I think there was an airline (Air America?) that flew frm LA to Pago-Pago, but that may have been an occasional, unscheduled flight.

When Canada 3000 went bankrupt a few years ago, there were no convenient flights to the Cooks from Canada. Canada 3000 did a good job developing this market. When Aloha started to serve YVR, they quickly began promoting the Cook Islands. So, while there may not be much demand from Hawaii, I would think there would from the North American continent.

I had read on here that Aloha was considering Christchurch have they dropped that for now?
