The regional versus national distinction is a confusing one. Hawaiian is actually larger and older than Midwest Express. I beleive it is the nation's 12th largest airline, and was started 70 years ago, in 1929. Midwest Express has a more "national" presence with service area from the west to the east coast, while Hawaiian's starts at the west coast (Las Vegas) and proceeds southwest past Hawaii to the South Pacific.
