From KITV 4's webpage after watching the 10pm TV news broadcast

Saw this on the 10pm evening news. Quite interesting, after all the local Honolulu TV news stations were reporting, on how frustrating it has been to travel Island Air due to frequent and multiple hour delays that have been plaguing them due to mx issues.... They had some passenger interviews on Molokai and Lanai in which the passengers looked totally steamed as 4-5 hours delays were commonplace in the past month.....
