Airlines have until September 17th to notify airport officials if they want the slot. The current waitlist in order is as follows: Hawaiian, Delta, Southwest and then American.

Their been talk is either Hawaiian or Southwest adding KOA on Sunday,Monday,Wednesday,Friday and LIH on Tuesday,Thursday and Saturday.
LGB loads are doing good according to Hawaiian.
So I’d expect them not to pass up on the Slot.
Delta is currently in jeopardy of Losing 7 slots under the minimum requirements. So they don’t need an additional slot.
Southwest has said it will always take any slots that become available.
If WN gets the additional slot I’m sure they will bring back their additional Afternoon HNL slot.
They used FedEx slot over the summer time on the 180 day temporary basis anyway.
I believe After Oct 1 Delta has to relinquish its unused slots.
Enjoy or Don’t
