Alaska Air inaugurated new daily service between Honolulu and San Jose and Honolulu and Oakland, Calif. today.

The flights add Honolulu to the list of Hawaii destinations the carrier serves and bring to 35 the number of weekly flights the airline offers from the Bay Area and Sacramento, to Hawaii.

Plans for the service were announced in November.

Just remember their plane are smaller,one aisle,nowhere to stretch out and very cramped for a 6hr flight. Their planes can fit inside of Hawaiians new airbus plus 14 feet more wide.Lots of time if the flight is full they have to leave peoples bags to make it to Hawaii. Hawaiians employees pay Hawaii taxes not like Alaska employees.

But Hawaiian has to fill a lot more seats to break even. To do so w/ "competition from Alaska" they'll probably have to lower their fares a bit which is good for the customer but not good for Hawaiian...Don't forget they have to pay for those planes. I think Hawaiian grew too fast in a not so good economy. As far as Alaska employees go, they hired Delta to do their ground work. Their, Delta's, employees pay Hawaii taxes. You need to get your facts right

Both airlines are stuck paying for new planes, so moot point there. Hawaiian's bigger planes mean they can spread the cost across more people compared to Alaska, thus Hawaiian can charge a lower fare than Alaska and still break even assuming similar load factors. Also, Hawaiian can take cargo pallets in the belly of their aircraft, whereas Alaska cannot. Advantage Hawaiian.

I guess Alaska Airlines will be flying the DC-9 or similar, the ones that Hawaiian has flying interisland.

At one point is it to many flights and to many empty seats?

When the entire jet is empty and the flight attendants say "cross check" and get ready to fly, or whatever they do, and they look in the plane and they find out, "Where are the Passengers?". Well Hawaii Five-0 is a great ambassador for Hawaiian because their lady on their tails are shown weekly.

I like it. More tourists coming to Hawaii, means more opportunity for the local people to get ahead. Let the market determine the issue of too many flights and too many empty seats. Bring on the business. The people who work the tourist industry need it.

Regardless of seating capacity or legroom, competition is always beneficial for travelers. We now have a choice from these 2 destinations.
