The problem is not about the stretcher but about all the electronic/electric devices that need to be plugged in and can overwhelm the electrical system. Tahiti sends the most critical patients to France because eventhough it has many hospitals, they might not have the specialists or equipments to tr...Jump to post
Don't forget that this is an election year and governor Ige needs to improve his image after the missile fiasco. The rental car facility is late, the Hawaiian Air hangar was late (and riddled with problems), the Mauka Concourse has yet to start so this "5 years from now and built in 5 years&quo...Jump to post
You can read the article: http://www.staradvertiser.com/2018/02/13/breaking-news/daniel-k-inouye-airport-to-get-new-1-1-billion-concourse/ I am confused. First they were going to build a new pier where the old interisland teminal is. But like all contructions projects in Hawaii, it is delayed or is ...Jump to post
Someone wants a BIG discount from Airbus.
Could HA go with Boeing? Sure but you have to factor the cost of training all the employees on a new type of airplane, buy new parts and whatever comes with maintaining a 787.

I assume many maintenance / support staff in GVA live in France...
And everyone thought Dubai-Auckland was the longest flight in the world.
That's the future weekly Dubai-Faleolo Emirates A380 flight.
You can read the full article <a href="http://pidp.org/pireport/2013/September/09-09-10.htm" target="_blank">here</a> What I found interesting: "Hawaiian Airlines has maintained over the years that passenger loads do not justify a third weekly flight for off peak season and this sentiment was also s...Jump to post

Like Mercure1 said, I don't think they are expanding the Bora Bora airport so it can accomodate A330/A350/B777 and the likes. I think they will expand the parking space and the runway so that the airport can accomodate more and bigger business jets. Those are the people that can afford those $$$ ove...Jump to post
Came to Papeete, Tahiti couple times for some round-the-world charter probably.Jump to post
1. It was very windy and the weights were needed so the airplane is not blown away. 2. Because the airplane is put in storage, they did not assemble the engines and left them in the box. 3. That's where the mechanics store their tools for easy access. 4. Its a reminder for the mechanics in case they...Jump to post
I just saw this article in Yahoo news: .
"Hawaiian Signs With Airbus, Rolls-Royce as Part of Long-Range Fleet Plan"
I understand that this is old news and that the aircraft is probably gone by now so I apologize for the late posting. There was a bare metal 747 on the North ramp on Friday afternoon. I couldn't see the registration so I don't the operator. Edit: after doing some research on the Flightaware website,...Jump to post
Taken from the Honolulu Advertiser website: "Hawaiian Airlines said it will begin nonstop service to the Philippines in March, in the first major international expansion since it emerged from bankruptcy protection in June 2005. The state's largest airline said it will make the 5,290-mile flight betw...Jump to post
I think this approach might be given if/when too many flights are arriving at the same time (inter-island+mainland) over the South shore and instead of asking the planes to slow down or to hold somewhere, ATC will route the mainland flights over the North shore? It must not be done too often (unless...Jump to post
There is an American Trans Air flying from Nagoya to Honolulu today showing on FlightAware as AMT7152. It could be a military charter. My question is: is this the first time a B757 (and in this case a -300) flies between Japan and Hawaii? I thought range could be an issue but I guess not unless it i...Jump to post
