Re: Why doesn't America have an international leisure airline?

Doesn't Omni International do scheduled charters between Hawaii and Las Vegas? They used to do tour packages for the Las Vegas market from Hawaii, with cheap and cheerful trips.

Re: JAL announces first A350 route

It’s probably for crew familiarisation first and later on be sent for international routes. It will depend on the Japanese government slot allocation between NH/JL to HND. 2020 will be a big year for Japan with the Olympics in TYO. Yes, to start, domestic to train crew.

Re: HA Starts HNL-BOS Today. Longest Scheduled Domestic Flight in US HIstory
