With Southwest’s entry into the Hawaii market, all eyes turned to Hawaiian Airlines as far as competitive pressure is concerned. But here’s a question I didn’t consider; can Alaska Air continue to find success in Hawaii too?
There are mistake fares and then there are MISTAKE fares. Last week, there was a massive mistake fare that left many asking Hawaiian Airlines charged customers how much?!
As you’ll recall, Hawaiian Air recently applied for an additional three slots at Tokyo Haneda. Unfortunately for the Airline, they didn’t get what they wanted. However, Hawaiian received an additional Haneda slot, so it isn’t a total loss.
My flight to Maui was uneventful. But, things went off the rails from there. So here the story of my arduous journey home with Hawaiian Air.
I’ve got great news for Hawaii residents and visitor alike! Southwest announces Honolulu-Hil service! Finally, we’ll have competition once again on an inter-island route that desperately needs it.
After a five year hiatus, Hawaiian Air is planning to revive Fukuoka Service. But they’re going to operate the route a little differently than last time. So, hopefully, they’ll find more success this time around.
