Interesting article posted on Pacific Business News today regarding the trading and selling of certain trip bids. The article specifically calls out legacy US flight attendants. Fair Use: Sources said this hoarding and selling of prime trips by senior flight attendants also makes it difficult for mi...Jump to post
Can’t believe it’s already been ten years. Crazy. While I only worked for AQ three years, it was, by far, my favorite airline I’ve ever worked for. I’m at HA now and I really enjoy it but it isn’t the same. There’s a handful of us who worked together at AQ at my station and we continuously swap stor...Jump to post

Nice to see JL returning to KOA. Should be very interesting with HA on HND. I wonder who will pick up the ground handling contract? This will be interesting as the airport is a mess right now because of the renovations. There literally is no counter space available so they'll have to use an existing...Jump to post
I actually started on QIK back when I worked with HP, then I moved to SABRE with legacy AA; now I find myself back on QIK. A few of my observations: Loading the seat map takes MUCH longer in QIK You can't change multiple seats at a time. SABRE allows you to string seats, not QIK. Many times a seat d...Jump to post
What I like most about this is that many employees were included in the refresh process. There's a meaning behind everything painted on our planes; even more so now. Pualani has never looked better! I can't wait to see where our airline goes next!
Of course, I may be bias
The people on this thread defending UA are the type of people who would be the first to sue the company if it had been them knocked out by security. Not only did you get assaulted, injured and dragged out of a plan against your will, you are now being watched by millions all over the world who are ...Jump to post
I guarantee that you will see HND/NRT-KOA sometime soon... I was thinking the same thing. They were essentially forced to exit the market due to their bankruptcy and never made it a secret they wanted back. Now that KOA modernization has started and the custom facilities are back it's only a matter...Jump to post
This is some awesome work; I've never seen anything like it. It's great to see the different takeoff capabilities of each aircraft.

Looks like 5x daily service. It'll be interesting to see where they put their counter space.

I'll actually be very surprised if ITO sustains the <acronym title="Los Angeles - International (LAX / KLAX), USA - California">LAX</acronym> flight.

I think this technology is great. However, it's time we regulate it. Like HOMSaR said, this weekend they were at least partly responsible for destroyed property.

They're a great airline but I wonder if they've reached their potential. The A321s on order will allow them to serve west coast markets from cities such as KOA. However, I can't imagine them really expanding beyond the cities they already serve, especially within the international market. My gut fee...Jump to post

Lots of Europeans travel here now. It might just work.
I think they could fill it a few days a week. The article said it would be a 13 hour flight time. Not too bad.

This is ridiculous.
You want early boarding, pay for it. You want a seat next to you empty for your car seat? Pay for it.
This has been a trend with many airlines. Just another bandwagon article.
