Finally! It's about time Aloha started service to SAN
. Kudos to AQ
for identifying an already-proven market out of SAN
(Hawaiian has successfully flown SAN
on a seasonal basis for two years now) and taking advantage of HA
's scheduled pullout.
I also expect the RNO
tag to be fairly popular. What will really be interesting, however, is whether or not Hawaiian and Aloha can coexist in this market. I think there is room for two carriers on the route, especially if Aloha flies smaller planes and has feed from RNO
Now, will HA
just sit tight and stick with their seasonal routing, or will they bring back SAN
earlier in 2005?
