RE: Hawaiian's Choice For 767

The overhauls for the ex-LTU's all took longer than originally planned partly because of extra things found during the overhaul. I don't exactly remember what it was, but I think it was because corrosion was found during the overhaul. Then there are all the mechanicals these planes have had.

RE: Hawaiian's Choice For 767

There are several reasons Hawaiian chose the 767. These are some, but not all: 1. The DC-10's are old, average age of about 23 years, meaning increased maintenance requirements. 2. Better efficency than the DC-10 and lowest twin aisle operating costs. 3. Range would allow expansion past the West Coa...
