Hawaiian Starting Service To Apia?

Sat Sep 24, 2005 3:03 pm

I'm not sure what to make of this article in the Pacific Business News as I haven't heard anything at work about it but you can read it for yourself here:

Aren't there quite a lot of Somoans of all kinds in the Hawaiian Islands, with family still back there?
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Apia, Pago Pago, Nuku'alofa, Suva, Nuku Hiva, Bora Bora, Moorea, Rarotonga, Nouvelle Caledonie, New Hebrides, Kona, Kahului, Lihue (oh, and let's not forget Honolulu); wherever - Let Pualani embrace the Pacific with a new spirit of Aloha! With very few changes and tweaks, Hawaiian would be back to being primo again with a refined yet relaxed Island lifestyle.

Seems like they are working out a codeshare agreement with Polynesian Blue as the operator. BTW, back in the days of the DC-8, HA used to fly to Apia and a lot more South Pacific destinations.

Most Samoans in Hawaii are from American Samoa, not the Republic of Samoa.

Polynesian Airlines will shortly be knowen as Polynesian Blue and carry the DJ flight code. So more bright red B738s in the Pacific

EDIT: Sorry mis-read reply 3. Thats what happens when you spend the night out with mates and get home totally tired

Oh yes, I remember it well as I was a crew member on those flights. We flew the DC-8's from HNL to PPG, APW, TBU, RAR, PPT, AKL, and SYD. We also flew a once per week charter from AKL to RAR and twice per week HNL-KWJ-MAJ-HNL on a wet lease from Air Marshall Islands.
At one point, we flew HNL-RAR-PPT-HNL.
Those were the good ole days!
