Insane amount, and this might explain why they're able to return some 737 that were leased. Also, the art...

Do you think we can see <acronym title="Hawaiian Airlines (USA)">HA</acronym> ordering around 10 ATR72's to compliment the ATR42 operated by EM and take up about 8 of their 9 options for the A321neo and deploy a mixed fleet on inter-island ops?

RE: HA 717s, After The A321

In my opinion, there will not be a perfect replacement for the <acronym title="Hawaiian Airlines (USA)">HA</acronym> 's 717s just because there is nothing today that is capable of rapid turnarounds, large cargo holds, and holds over 120 seats in a 2-class config for these short flights, nor will the...

On a side note, the new Eastern has 10 B737-8NG's on order, 20 MRJ90's on order, and is building a hanger at MIA… Where is all this cash coming from to fund this?

They then ordered 29 more 737-900ER's and 201 737 MAX 9 aircraft in 2011 for about $22.4 billion dollars. Then recently...
