HNL Traffic Before Flossie

Tue Aug 14, 2007 8:44 am

Does anyone know if any airlines are flying any more/larger planes in to HNL, OGG, or any other Hawaii airport before Hurricane Flossie gets too close? I flew out of HNL yesterday and from the sounds of it every flight was full, including the DL flight I was on.

I wish I knew. I'm flying our (HA) flight back from SYD tomorrow, and we're scheduled to arrive Wednesday morning, right when Flossie is supposed to be in the area. I'm wondering if we're going as planned or will be waiting.

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

Hawaiian Airlines management has just sent out an email to employees to alert us of the storm and it stated they have a team in place to monitor conditions and any possible alterations to our operations.
The latest forecast track has Flossie passing south of the Big Island, but local forecasters here in HNL are saying that the Big Island will experience Hurricane force winds and torrential rain in the southern half of the island. Hilo (ITO) will likely be the airport in Hawaii most likely affected by the hurricane. The storm is packing sustained winds of 125 miles per hour with higher gusts and is not expected to lose any intensity over the next 24 hours. It's projected closest proximity to land will be tomorrow afternoon.

Latest Flossie Advisories are here:

Hey HAL,
I'm flying our HA flight TO SYD tomorrow, but it should still be well to the southeast of HNL. You're right though, it should be right in your neighborhood on your approach into HNL on Wednesday morning. I would imagine you'll have to make a more westerly approach. Wishing you a smooth trip!

Aloha,

any more/larger planes in to HNL

Well, it's probably not related to Hurricane Flossie, but ATA now has some B753 flights into HNL again. TZ4753 from LAX has been upgraded from the B752 30July. Otherwise, there doesn't seem to be any changes as of now (from the hurricane).

Yikes! No more sun for the tourists, for a few days.
