It looks like WN moving into E at HNL has came at the expense of AA who has moved almost all their flights to C. This should help with the COVID safe travels lines as well as neither AA nor DL offerer the Hawaii pre-clear wristbands and both were arriving at E, causing crazy lines. AA moving to C should help with the lines upon arrival.
Seems reasonable with WN growing there HNL and whole hawaii operation that they make room for WN to expand in probably use most of the gates there when Hawaiian leaves right ? It’s probably also because AA do they even offer enough flights to need more then 1 and half gates
AA probably needs 3 Gates as their flights tend to arrive around the same time but it will be interesting to see what happens when INTL starts back up. Right now due to COVID restrictions and the need for arrival screenings, all HA mainland arrivals must arrive at either C, E, or G (with nearly all arriving at C right now) and I assume once the restrictions go away completely and the Mauka concourse opens up, HA will move most A330 mainland arrivals into the Mauka concourse (6 Gates) and all A321neo arrivals in A with INTL remaining on C. I’d assume there should be enough room for AA to stay on C as INTL flights are given priority there, but they can always use either D or F for overflow once all the COVID restrictions go away.
So will WN be the only one on the E concourse when that happens ? There wouldn’t be any airline after Hawaiian moves out of E right ? Could WN potentially have all ten gates in E at least most of the day
