Hawaiian Airlines to use bigger plane to Auckland

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 02:04 p.m. HST, Oct 04, 2012

Hawaiian Airlines plans to use a bigger plane when it launches nonstop service between Honolulu and Auckland, New Zealand in March.

The airline said Tuesday it will use a 294-seat Airbus 330 on the route instead of a 264-seat Boeing 767 as previously announced.

Hawaiian says it's responding to strong demand for the flights, which will operate three days a week.

Hawaiian has been rapidly expanding its service to the U.S. mainland and the Asia-Pacific region.

It will begin flying to Sapporo, Japan next month. It started new routes to New York City and Fukuoka, Japan earlier this year. It began flying to Seoul, South Korea last year.

Now all they have to do is learn how to handle baggage for overseas flights at HNL in a timely fashion. Based on my personal experience, bringing baggage to the commuter terminal from the main terminal takes way too long.

Hawaiian has a unique advantage compared to other US carriers. They have Hawaii workers, I would rather fly Hawaiian that just about any US carrier. They are becoming the Singapore Airlines of the US.

Who's flying nowadays? And where are they getting their money to do so? Rising fuel prices are keeping me from flying.
