Hawaiian to announce HNL-LGB service on Monday January 8 2018.

Sun Jan 07, 2018 5:23 pm

Hearing from a LGB employee that LGB airport JetBlue and Hawaiian will announce HNL service starting this summer in LGB.
If HNL is successful it will further expand to OGG and KOA with slots borrowed from JetBlue on a codeshare basis.
Hawaiian feels this A321NEO service will service the high end Orange County market that lacks direct service due to SNA runway restrictions.

About time someone did this!

With the JetBlue codeshare it will benefit both. I would assume starting with A321NEO service?

I would expect this to grow in number of islands and eventually HNL frequency.

Now to find the time to fly this...

JetBlue had to do something with those slots. It was a matter of time before they had to give some up. Better for them to give them up on a codeshare basis than lose them to WN.

So is B6 giving some of their LGB non-commuter slots to HA for this service?

This is a very clever move with wins on all sides. This provides some interesting one-stop options for AUS, SLC, RNO, BOS, and FLL depending on the timing of course.

They are done bleeding out at LGB for no good reason.

(AS should take this lesson regarding DAL)

Could they also announce a code share at JFK as well at the same time?

If this is true, this is absolutely great news. As a Disney travel agent for Aulani, my guests would go crazy for this service. Another viable option outside of LAX and serve guests out of Orange County.

Expect more changes at LGB from B6
From what I understand they will be changing things around there.

Awesome news. Assuming the flight would depart sometime after 10am for B6 connections?

Now won’t have to do the dreaded LAX drive from OC or pay the much higher fares from SAN hopefully.

definitely a clever way for them to use up the slots that they obviously didn't want to use. Not sure if they can get JetSuiteX to come and use non-commuter slots.

Good for both airlines if they can make this work. A321NEO sure opens up a lot of doors.

Slightly OT, but what did HA use for west coast ops before the NEOs started coming in? Just the A330?

The other post is just the usual OOG changes. This post you did allows us to directly talk about the service without weeding through all the other changes

What exactly will B6 be changing other than just changes? :) Can you be more specific please.

I’m surprised that AS didn’t start LGB-Hawaii first, especially before they dropped LGB completely.

Sorry about that it was a quick post and I didn’t edit it very well.
Anyway I can’t be super specific but in the coming months the jetblue strategy (if you can call it that) with LGB will be wait for it.....changing.
The HA flight was the first small step.

That what I was thinking but it will feed connections in both LGB for JetBlue and other islands for Hawaiian in HNL.
This will be a great alternative to LAX for the high dollar Orange County passengers.
I expect Hawaiian could easily spin this has New Orange County Hawaii service via convenient hassle free LGB airport.

I wonder if this will strike a fire for United to bring back SNA-HNL service.
The economy was in the toilet when they decided to Axe it last time.
Now Orange County having a record booming economy.

Well, its a safe bet the weekly OAG thread is probably one of the most regularly read posts on this website, or of any aviation/airline related site. Airlines pay a LOT of money to monitor/analyze airline schedules.

Those posted timings are rather useless for B6 connections @ LGB.

Only early AM B6 inbounds to LGB prior to a HA 0930 dep are flights from OAK, SFO and SJC, all of which have their own HA service.

I don’t think this flight has anything to do with connections to B6 flights. The LA-Hawaii market is huge. People would love an alternative to LAX, especially one as simple and easy as LGB. HA snags lots of business from the Orange County market by establishing itself @ LGB, halfway to LAX. If service extends beyond this single HNL trip, they may attempt to integrate flight times to better align with B6, but I don’t see that as being the angle right now. Fantastic move by HA!!

It looks like there’s an early morning AUS-LGB flight that can comfortably make an 0930 departure as well. But I agree it’s not going to work well for east coast markets; even if the 0735 flight from JFK was moved to 0600, it’s arrival in LGB would allow for a just over 30 minute connection. But maybe the thinking is that east coast markets would connect through JFK or LAX, while LGB can take western and mid-west markets.

The red-eye return leaves plenty of options for onward connections, but may not be as desirable for the local market.

Rich International proposed LGB-Hawaii, probably as a charter in conjunction with someone like SunTrips. It never started though. An L-1011 at the old trailer terminal would have been something to see.

This is so exciting, kinda getting bored of seeing JBU all the time, I am excited if this is true! I hope the 767s come back since we haven't had them as civil aircraft since continental.. and rich international once wanted to do this flight? The L-1011 is my favorite aircraft, that's disappointing. Oh well, hope this actually is true!

It’s not. You’re neglecting to account for the fact that by June, Daylight Saving Time will be in effect in California, but Hawaii doesn’t observe it. So adjusting the times to Pacific Daylight time, we get:

HNL-LGB: 0230-0800, 5:30 hours eastbound
LGB-HNL: 0930-1540, 6:10 hours westbound

East Coast travelers are probably going to fly JFK-HNL nonstop on HA metal, with the pre-existing B6 codeshare.

Westbound travelers from B6 markets in the West and Midwest, might find it more convenient to connect through LAS to HA 17, the westbound LAS-HNL redeye, than trying to make an early connection in LGB. But my assumption about the LGB codeshare is that it is mostly for tapping the B6 FF base, and that connections are an afterthought. If I am wrong, I'm sure the westbound flight will be retimed soon.

I don't follow LGB's slot allocation process that closely, but it will be interesting to hear the full details. I didn't think B6 could pick and choose who would get their slots go if they weren't to use them. I thought they would have to be returned to the airport and airlines then submitting applications for them...unless this already happened.

Not a fan of the schedule but I am also aware of the slot issues in LGB. While I am not interested in the redeye, it might be a nice inaugural to do from LGB to HNL. 9:30am is a good departure time.

:checkmark: Agreed that given the flight times, it appears to be geared to the local market, which presumably includes a not insignificant amount of B6 FF's.

B6 could also, in theory, re-time its flights from SLC, RNO, FLL, and AUS to take advantage of connection opportunities.

That's what I thought too, but I guess there's a way around it. I can't see B6 returning a slot to the general pool with the "hope" that it doesn't land in WN's or DL's hands in the lottery.

And long before the B767's arrived at Hawaiian didn't the airline use their DC8, DC10, L1011 on their west coast operations?

There is so much demand in so cal to HNL, I do think this will be a success.

B6 might adjust LGB but what good airline doesn't adjust it's offerings. People have been anti lgb b6 for so long now, they are not leaving the focus city. B6s biggest issue right now is southwests new interest in the place. Some adjust was and will still be needed.

Much better times that rumored.
But his doesn't really feed anything for a
JetBlue codeshare with a 2100 arrival.
I wouldn't be surprised if another LGB airline objected via a Lawsuit to the leasing of slots especially since it's being dubbed a codeshare.
I'm sure the lawyers of the other airlines are reviewing the LGB slot program.

It doesn’t need to be timed for connections if the intent is to capture local B6 frequent fliers.

LGB slots cannot be traded between carriers under any circumstances. That is simply not allowed. They can be used on a temporary basis if a carrier isn’t using their full allocation and another carrier is interested in utilizing them 6-months at a time. That’s how WN added LAS & DEN last year. B6 returned a slot to the airport and Hawaiian was already at the top of the waitlist to receive slots if/when available, so they’d have been the first to be offered said slot(s). That’s how it happened. So it was definitely a “collaboration” between B6 & HA but not in the way which was suggested earlier in the thread. Brilliant move by HA to swoop into LGB!! This service will be wildly successful.
