Tough to hear with prime time tourist season coming up. Summer is peak travel for Hawaii. With August now eliminated from opportunity, the industry will stumble into September at the beginning of one of the travel troughs. Thanksgiving through New Years is the next hope for anything close to normal.Jump to post
Hawaiian won't have JetBlue so might be time for them to exit also. HAL didn't serve LGB because of B6, so why would they exit as well? They used them for ground handling and some very limited connecting opportunities. LGB was by far more O&D driven. The connecting partnership is much stronger ...Jump to post
AA currently has preferential use of 4 gates in T-5 (5th one once terminal gate reconfiguration is finished) as part of proprietary investments in its master lease that runs till 2039. AA may also access up to 5 other gates on common use basis, plus a common use bus gate in T-5. They have exclusive...Jump to post
I think it's important to note, that this development doesn't necessarily mean the airline is actively drawing on the funds available. In the case of HAL, they've had great access to capital on the open market and this gives them another option, should they need it.Jump to post
These flights are not for currency. You say that with remarkable assuredness, as if you have inside info. Care to elaborate? I already did but I'll expand. The flights are operated to ensure the social distancing policies can be complied with. 321/330 pilots are going to the simulator to manage the...Jump to post
205 is in PAE for its 2 year check.
230's delivery is on hold due to Covid, but will be delivered.
No plans to retire early any part of the fleet.
787 deliveries are still expected, HAL continues to plan for them. No, BNE and SYD aren't the first routes.
I see the Mauka Extension at the Interisland terminal is coming up, framing seems to be in place and construction is moving along. Has there been any change in the news that the whole facility is going to be used by Hawaiian? And is Hawaiian still going to be the only entity using the "A"...Jump to post
[list=][/list] HA bought WPs certificate to keep others out of the interisland business. Perhaps, but that's a bit of a stretch. There may have been and underlying competitive reasons, but there were clear advantages for buying the certificate and assets for HAL's use. Bringing the Ohana operation i...Jump to post
News came down today that Hawaiian Airlines is now using a A-320NEO on one flight a day between Honolulu and Kahului. From.Routes Online: Hawaiian Airlines earlier this month launched Airbus A321neo aircraft on Inter-Island market, operating on Kahului – Honolulu route. Since 07JAN20, the A321neo o...Jump to post
Because the A330 is currently completely staffed? Do you not see that bringing in more widebodies opens up more upgrades? From what I have gathered from friends of friends, The older A330's are going away with the 787's replacing them almost 1 to 1 rather than for widebody growth. I don't know how ...Jump to post
I don’t believe that the plane landed at SEA. They just did two approaches and go arounds and then off to HNL. This is after the original delivery flight and induction maintenance done in PAE. There is a large MRO at PAE Thank you to both for the replies. Why two approaches? Is there a requirement ...Jump to post

Just curious, could HA add DEN-HNL with the A321 (does it have the range) with DEN being hot and high? Would be a beautiful addition to DIA! Considering the 321neo on LAS-OGG will on on occasion experience weight penalties, DEN-HNL will be even more restrictive. Not to mention, DEN-HNL doesn't real...Jump to post
After reading the DOT document, my interpretation is that UAs LAX-HND was the last slot chosen, and that the DOT respected each carriers ranking preferences. Thus, had UA ranked IAH ahead of LAX, it is very likely that IAH-HND would have been chosen instead. Also, AA ranking LAS below DFW#2 also ki...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

How did this become a HA/DL JV thread? I read all of the originally referenced documents and nothing in them suggest anything of the sort. The documents clearly state they (VA) are asking for an exemption to codeshare such as the one they already have with DL, which is the only reference to DL. The ...Jump to post
What are the numbers like between the 738/9 and the A321neo’s between the west coast and Hawaii? Did HA buy them as much for commonality, or are the numbers that much better for the 321 on those routes? Will AS deploy them more on the Hawaiian routes as they arrive on property? Hawaiian bought the ...Jump to post
DL has long been on the record for wanting to consolidate its Tokyo operation at HND. The JV with KE will render the need to connect passengers via Tokyo moot, thereby allowing the consolidation. HND will turn into an important spoke from DL's hubs in the US and be the airport they use to serve Toky...Jump to post
Beyond that, HNL-GUM and reverse is simply not that big of a market, even with the military. I have it on good authority UA was looking into whether or not the 752 could make the trip. This was in the last few years. The mail contracts UA has ultimately made it a nonstarter. Having talked with a fe...Jump to post
I am shocked that HAL doesn't fly to Guam. It seems like something like that would be right in their wheelhouse. HAL's wheelhouse is taking people to/from/within Hawaii focussing on visitors and the local population. GUM doesn't exactly fit into that niche. To answer your original question... it's ...Jump to post
I’m surprised HA is going to single aisle Airbus on these same routes they will be competing with WN. I prefer the larger A330 for flights 5+ hours and HA had this advantage but is giving it up? Seems to me HA would have attracted customers like me who don’t want to fly in a 737/A320. Perhaps I’m a...Jump to post
Curious: do A330s at 238t or 242t have fuel dumping? I would expect that lower MTOW A330s would not have fuel dumping. (Hawaiian Airlines' A332s are all of the 238t variant.) All of the HAL 330's have dump capabilities. CNN this morning broadcast a passenger video of that plane dumping fuel on the ...Jump to post
The article is slightly off in its sequence. It first departed on-time and did an air return to fix a problem. Then it departed the gate again, got an ECAM message and had to return to the gate. It departed a third time, only to have a different, yet somewhat related problem occur requiring another ...Jump to post

May she rest in peace. Was the aircraft positioned to JFK with a Delta crew after the diversion to SFO ? Apparently they used the DL8050 call sign for it. HE will rest in peace. Time to rant... at what point on airliners.net are people going to realize DELTA has nothing to do with the operation of ...Jump to post
HA and DL were both flying half full planes, in what was proving to be a one carrier market for the nonstop to HNL. With this development combined with the JAL partnership, I'd be shocked if HAL didn't re-enter the market. With access to JALPack, the relationships built with HIS and JTB and the know...Jump to post
Ah, so then there will be five at GYR. At least for a while; I wonder how long those two going to UA will be around. You'll have to drive a little further to see it, because it isn't going to GYR, but going to MZJ. LOL OK I'll pass on this one. How do you know this? Is it because it's a leased airc...Jump to post
Sad to see another 767 pax operator retiring the type. A question, was Roman Abramovich's personal jet B767-33A/ER P4-MES originally intended for Hawaiian Airlines? It was originally N595HA when it rolled off the production plant and was sold to Global Jet Luxembourg immediately after? Indeed. Some...Jump to post
Heard for short term due construction WN flights will arrive at T1 in HNL and Departure T3 ramp side gates. Until construction is finished on a baggage claim area for the ramp side gates.

594 also appears scheduled for tonight's HNL-SJC. Hard to keep this thing retired! Due to operational needs, 594 was swapped into the SJC flight for two days. A TSA security, bag screening and baggage belt meltdown created lots of delays the other day. Putting 594 into service helped bring the oper...Jump to post
Re #2 .. 588, 590, 592 went to UA. Surprised UA didn’t take the other four, assuming they were available. New regs are N684, 685, 686UA. 684 is in HKG for conversion/induction and other two stored at GYR for the time being. They weren't available. 591 and 593 left in 2011 for Air Canada/Rouge and 5...Jump to post
The only route I've been seeing HA's 767 fly on a regular basis is SMF-HNL now, after SJC-HNL switched to an A21N on January 1. SMF-HNL switches to an A330 on January 8. After then, is there any other assignments for their 767 fleet, or will they be retired, and if so, are there any ceremonies plan...Jump to post
Hawaiian has been wanting an additional HND slot for KOA for quite some time. They deserve it since they have acted in good faith. Hawaiian already has the slot to fly to KOA. In the second award proceeding, which opened up the daytime slots, HAL was the only one that applied for the nighttime slot...Jump to post
Those suggesting t-props are doing so purely based on the fact that the inter-island market is filled with short hops and that's what t-props generally do.

Slightly off topic but is there a market for Hawaiian (or other carriers) to run inter-island flights between 12 midnight and 5 am especially on the weekends? Short answer, no. Just like there isn't a market for short hops on the mainland during the same time. In Hawaii, this is generally when the ...Jump to post
