As a person who was born and raised in Hawaii, who still lives here now, and who lives part-time in Montréal; I think I can shed a bit of insight here. 1. Tons of Canadian snowbirds own apartments in Honolulu making them immune to any hotel room shortage or hotel room rates. 2. Judging from the ease...Jump to post
I know a little about two of them. WAMOS Air have 2 x 747s heading from Madrid to HNL. One will head to FRA (possibly non-stop) as is showing a lighter load. The other will route through Vancouver to London Gatwick. Edit. Just reading that there'll be another flight going to Sydney. Unfortunately t...Jump to post
Hawaiian Airlines will stop almost all long haul flights on March 26th and reduce interisland frequencies as well. The only long haul to be operated will be HNL-LAX (reduced to once daily) and once weekly HNL-PPT. https://newsroom.hawaiianairlines.com/releases/hawaiian-airlines-to-suspend-most-long-...Jump to post
I hate to be overly pedantic, but this is not the last flight to the US, it is the last flight to the mainland US. This ship will fly to HNL for the next couple of months, in addition to several select domestic Australian destinations. https://www.businesstraveller.com/business-travel/2019/12/05/qan...Jump to post
I am wondering the same thing. Or what about hypothetically, an airline opens their own airport. Can they register their airport? Correct. As an example, Hawaiian Airlines opened an airport in Kapalua, Maui, HI and requested the code "JHM", which stood for John H Magoon who was HA's CEO a...Jump to post
That is the whole question. Can they legally cancel your reservation and void your ticket? You paid for it, didn't you? If you go to a restaurant and order a set 5-course menu, pay days, weeks or even months in advance, and then don't finish the first course, can they legally refuse to serve you the...Jump to post

How is AC able to do this within the bargaining agreements with their respective flight crew unions? Maybe because this is a temporary wet lease?Jump to post
The first of three A380s arrived in Honolulu for the first time today on a test flight. Though not the first visit by an A380 to Honolulu, it was still a great sight to behold. HNL has one A380 gate (with the upper jetway) and it will soon see use as regularly scheduled flights start next month. Ne...Jump to post

Aloha, I will be doing a lot of traveling this year between HNL-SFO and HNL-ORD on the domestic 777-200 and noticed that rows 39 and 40 at United.com are two abreast A-B and K-L. Also it looks like row 40 has more legroom, like economy-plus but it is not sold as such. Are these indeed two-abreast? I...Jump to post
The only A330-200 to arrive into IND was Comlux Aviation Malta flight MLM838 at 4:07pm.

Indeed, I only saw one day where the fare was offered earlier this morning and am sure it is gone by now. Their regular fares aren't much different than what is already out there. Last week I booked HNL-SFO-HNL in May on UA for $408 and SW's fares look higher than that. Just tried to book inter-isla...Jump to post
Who pays for these such facilities in say YUL? The host airports pay for the facilities and the US CBP pay rent as far as I can tell.

Delivery flight in progress. https://www.flightradar24.com/SIA8895/1df55a7a That’s an extremely northerly route they’re doing here. TLS-SIN isn’t even a polar route.

How are boarding passes and seats assigned? Since the airline chartering the aircraft doesn't have a seat map, are these done manually or is there a stand alone app or some sort of software that the airline could use. Maybe HiFly has a proprietary website where those seats can be assigned with acces...Jump to post
Looks like N762AN got into Maui on the 24th as flight 7 from Dallas and has been stuck there ever since. Attempted to depart for Tulsa on the 28th but that flight was cancelled.

As a life long Hawaii resident, I have to think that 77H hit the nail on the head. With direct service to the islands of Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii; there is no need for a second major inter-island carrier. History keeps repeating itself but some people continue to think otherwise and invariably fail. ...Jump to post
Unfortunately, I think this is covered with his own liability insurance so he likely won't pay a cent. Will that be the case?

These experienced pilots (and others) made a mistake that is inherent in human nature. They tried to make what they were seeing fit what they thought they should be seeing. With one bank of runway lights off (28L), then they thought 28R was 28L and that the taxiway was 28R. Perhaps an issue here is ...Jump to post
If the passenger has liability insurance or better yet, an umbrella policy, it's likely the insurance company will end up paying. So it won't really affect the passenger aside from increased insurance premiums.
I hope HA is able to recoup its costs, as well as other airlines in a similar situation.
Yes! This indeed appears be an extension to the US jetty, though there is no mention of this at the ADM website extension nor any mention online unless it is in french and alas, I'm no Francophone.

Why were the stairs brought to the front of the aircraft if the offender is in the rear? In pictures of the aircraft, there were stairs at the front and back. Is it standard protocol to open the front door first? Why not lead the prisoner out the back instead of walking down the aisle?Jump to post
If I had to guess, I'd say Cincinnati in the late 50's.

I think the primary issue is that these so-called 'low cost carriers' aren't that much cheaper.

From what I understand, the bar/QR code just restates what is on the printed boarding pass.
