I doubt Hawaii has any legal standing to implement something like that. You are talking about restricting interstate travel/commerce.

Finnair only went Airbus long haul about 10 years ago when their MD-11 were getting old, they got a few A340-300 and then went A330-300 in a very big way.

30 passengers on the flight according to the article. Not a great load factor, but 1 flight does not make a trend and being privately held, all we know is they are still in business after 15 years of operation.
