Sounds like a whimper, not a roar if this is true.

If the FAA hasn’t given them the actual certificate in hand, then I think what was said by Gary was appropriate. WN has decided it is not going to sell tickets until it has been given the final approval, which is now imminent. So what’s a couple more days at this point? Would have been awesome to have it officially announced today, of course. They’d be about to start flying right now if not for the Gov’t shutdown last month. But sounds like it’s still a go for sometime in March if they announce schedules anytime this week.

Hard to say. My guess is within the next few days.

From CNBC:

The airline, which will service Hawaii from the West Coast, will announce when it will start selling tickets to the popular vacation destination in the coming days, it said in a statement.
