We need someone to pony up the cash and put the old Aloha back together. That's the only way to keep Hawaiian honest.

Just returned from LV and noticed a few empty seats middle section. Although they promote only airline offering free meals; nothing is free it is included in ticket price, I think the cost of ticket is going to continue to have less takers and flights will be cut back to fewer flights .

Hawaiian Airlines for get's where they came from, they forget they were an airline to service the Local people of the Hawaiian Islands, Thai is the root of this airline. Nowady all they think about is their on time record, They forgot how to spell ALOHA, Thats right all you Hawaiian Airline employee's that read my comment your company is raping the Hawaiian interisland traveler's, we are the people that help make the airline into what it is today. You boss and CEO Dunkerly or what ever his name has forgotten that fact. The Public Utilities Comission should get of the big fat back side and take alook ar Hawaiian's books and see exacrtly what it cost to fly a loaded plain interisland.and see what killer profits Hawaiian makes. There is proof they play with the numbers, just try booking a flight online you will see what I mean...How can they sell the same seat on a flight for $79.00 and tommorrow sell the same seat for $201.20, What's up with that. their excuse supply and demand...that is just robbery.

They lose money on the $79 fare and make up for it on the $201 fare. They have to price it like that because competition is so fierce that if they didn't offer the $79 money-losing fare, they would fly empty seats, which is worse than selling it for $79. The airline fare business is hyper-capitalism.
