I too would like to see Southwest (or someone) get into the business of flying from the mainland to Hawaii. Most of my family is there and trying to afford regular trips over to see them is impossible. The older generation is dying off and I can't afford to visit. My mother had a stroke in May and is only now able to consider traveling. I am trying to get her to Oahu to see her aging sister before it is too late for either one of them. But the cost of flights, not to mention all the other expense is making it prohibitive!
Hawaiian Airlines could afford to be competive back when they had competition - Now they are just being greedy and taking advantage of an unfortuate situlation.
Hawaii isn't just about honeymooners, vacations and luxury holidays! It is populated by a whole bunch of people with a whole bunch of relatives that live elsewhere that can't afford to see them! SHAME ON YOU HAWAIIAN AIRLINES!!!!
One pissed off Wahini.
