    Look. We only just started Hawaii from the west coast and the only thing they can write negatively is the fact that we don't do it from the east coast non stop. But you know what? Give it time and we will someday.
    Hawaiian Air might wanna be a little more concerned with when and how Southwest will soon be doing a bunch of inner island connecting...

    They wanted to use the Max 7 s for inter island flying. The Max 8, you could carry a full boat. Yoy still have to fix the Leap Engine reliability, before ETOPS would be granted.

    Inner Island hopping has just started, between Honolulu and Kona.
    It's a start of the inner island hopping.

    "Yesterday, we launched service between San Jose and Honolulu. And, on May 12, we will begin offering connecting service between both Oakland and San Jose via Kona as we launch interisland service between Honolulu and Kona."

    Of course ALK can continue to be successful. Why would anyone think not. Sure they and others will feel the entrance of SWA but SWA will not put ALK out of the Hawaii market, C'mon man. Maybe we could get together with Hawaiian Air or ALK and do some code sharing as a start? Then later a possible get together with one of them at a later date?? Why not???
    We will see just with what GK wants to do in the upcoming Pilot and F/A nego's. Remember last time he wanted the code sharing? Don't be surprised if he looks at it again but with stronger ambitions in these contract talks coming with our flight crews, I would put my money on some kind of code sharing or something big and new...

    Can Alaska Airlines Continue to Succeed in Hawaii?

    A little more in Hawaii expansions. Soon to be Cali to Kilo direct before the holidays.
    Jim, is this one of the interisland flights you were waiting for? Or maybe it was your buddy in Hawaii??
