Hawaiian Airlines creates Maui hub and adds more service between islands

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:08 p.m. HST, Jan 12, 2012

courtesy hawaiian airlinesA Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767-300, similar to this one, was involved in an incident Wednesday night at Kansai International Airport in Japan. The plane, with 208 passengers and crew, entered a runway just minutes before a cargo jet was about to land.

Hawaiian Airlines is expanding its operations to create a Maui hub that will increase service between the Valley Isle and other neighbor islands by 25 percent and improve connections to and from the West Coast.

The carrier said today it is increasing its daily neighbor island schedule by an additional 23 to 25 flights over the next several weeks. More than half of the added flights will serve the new Maui hub with one-third providing additional nonstop service between Maui and both Hawaii island and Kauai.

Hawaiian is supporting the expanded flights schedule with three Boeing 717-200s jets that it recently acquired.

Why is it that Hawaiian still has not created any direct flights from Kauai or the Big Island to the mainland? American, Delta, United all have done so. When is "Hawaiian" going to take care of all of Hawaii? Right now it's less expensive to fly to the mainland from Kauai or the Big Island by using the out of state carriers.

Hawaiian is RIPPING THE PEOPLE OF HAWAII OFF......They are able to buy all these new planes and expand at the expense of the people of Hawaii. Folks lets understand this; there is no competition for the Inter-island routes even with GO. GO only has 5-50 seat planes. Hawaiian, if I'm not mistaken, has 16 planes that carry over 100 passengers per plane. GO can only compete so far then Hawaiian can charge whatever the want. This is what the People of Hawaii should be afraid of.....sitting on the Board of Directors with Hawaiian is a guy by the name of Don Carty. He used to be the head honcho of American Airlines but was forced to resign. He threatened the unionized employees that he would file for Chapter 11 if they did not concede work rules to help the company be profitable. The following day he was to give 45 senior managers millions of dollars in bonus money. Now this has to be reported to the SEC (Security Exchange Commisson) in NY. Obviously the American Airline unions got word of this and the "you know what" hit the fan. Within a few days Carty resigned. What I'd like to know is what kind of "GOLDEN PARACHUTE" did this guy get ????? Now he's at Hawaiian giving direction and part of the DIRECTORS THAT ARE SCREWING THE LOCAL PEOPLE WITH OUTRAGEOUSE INTER-ISLAND AIRFARES !!!!!

According to a March 31, 2011 Form 8K filing to the SEC, Mr. Carty stepped down from the Board of Hawaiian Airlines. He is no longer serving in any capacity there. He is not "giving direction". Please try to stick with facts and reality, not emotion.
