There must have been a lot more turboprops to LAX than I thought. There certainly more SAN-LAX frequencies then there are now. When I started flying the route in 1998, there were four carriers in the market: ⋅ American Eagle Saab 340 ⋅ SkyWest/Delta Connection EMB-120 ⋅&nbs...Jump to post
The right answer here is that they need to implement an automatic redirect for all http requests to go to https.

I’m curious - do any businesses or government entities favor exclusive travel on Hawaiian interisland? Or is everyone frew to book based on pricing and preference? Just wondering. I don't know about business or state government, but the federal government (including military) uses a program run by ...Jump to post
I agree that if what is being proposed is for HA to have check-in and baggage claim in T1.5 while parking at MSC, that would be rather undesirable. I have a feeling HA knows they're stuck with what LAX decides to do, but hopes to get some sort of concession from LAWA. Someone mentioned that they'll ...Jump to post
Didn't Air Canada use Terminal 1 in the past? What gate did they use? Where was the FIS located? Which baggage claim did they use? I believe they did. Likely a United gate as they are Star Alliance partners. But the major Canadian airports have US customs preclearance so they arrive at SAN as a dom...Jump to post

Flightaware reports that tonight's BA flight is a 77L. I don't know where you're seeing that.

Does the 767-300ER have enough range to fly from SAN to CDG? Maybe Delta could start seasonal service to CDG with the 767-300ER. Does Delta still operate a hub at CDG?

3. Hilo does have hotels. 2 of them are pretty big, but its nothing compared to Kona and we like it that way. Exactly. Hilo has hotels. The way I’d put it is that Hilo doesn’t have resorts, but they do have the two big hotels and a bunch of smaller places. And one of them, the Naniloa, now operates...Jump to post

I don’t even think a 737 can land and takeoff from lanai Aloha tried Lanai with the 737 at one point as well, I believe prior to Hawaiian going there with the DC-9 as mentioned above.

I think Apple Pay generates a unique CC number for each transaction so that if there's a breach, the leaked number is useless as it was only good for that one transaction.

WN actually already operates a few nonstop routes within the contiguous U.S. that are shorter than HNL-KOA such as ATL-GSP, AUS-HOU, BWI-ORF, and MDW-GRR. Just cutting this off. Again. The problem with 737-300 and later and the short flights in Hawaii, as Aloha found, has to do with doing them all ...Jump to post

I wish they would name it T0 - after all zero if a perfectly good number. But why is it that some of the abbreviations in this thread are T9, but C0 instead of T0?

I don’t follow? What about HA’s interisland fleet is LCC-esque? So far as I know the legroom is the same and the seats are ina fixed reclined angle.

Could T8 have gates added on the east side, or is that not possible? Thanks. T8 is pretty close to Sepulveda.

I've had it happen as a passenger too. LAX-SAN on a US Airways Express (Trans States) Jetstream 31.

HA could codeshare to Europe today if they wanted to, via LAX. Virgin Atlantic is already a HawaiianMiles partner.

For us outside the US, why is WN not considered an LCC?

I’m happy for SW but who really wants to sit on a SW 737 for 6+ hours? Not me.

I find it funny how so many complain about them serving junk food. Do American and United serve better food? Last time I flew, I was only given a small bag of pretzels on AA.

This seems like a stupid question (given that WN doesn't operate redeyes at present to my knowledge) but are connections from Hawaii to the East Coast possible without an overnight stay in OAK or SJC?

Hopefully not. Terminal 2 East is outdated, window-starved, too narrow, and inefficiently laid out.
