Hawaiian Airlines started as “Inter-Island Airways” on January 30, 1929 and started operating on October 6, 1929. However, the name was changed to Hawaiian Airlines on October 1, 1941.
On March 2003, Hawaiian Airlines filed its second bankruptcy and was overdue for $4.5 million worth of payments to the pilots’ pension plan.

A 51 year old Englishman, Mr. Mark Dunkerley is the current President and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines since June 2, 2005. The president’s open minded attitude towards business about not just growth but also to prosper and do well, keeps the Hawaiian Airlines in good standing from being 88th last year on “The World’s Top 100 Airlines” by Skytrax, now got the 82nd place.

The in-flight magazine Hana Hou! gives out the Hawaiian vibe, let’s you learn more about their people, places, and culture.
The Hawaiian Airlines also have an airport shuttle, the traditional Lei greeting is done. It’s an authentic Hawaiian way of greeting with a necklace of fresh Lei flowers. Showtime Tours partnered the airlines to pick up their customers from McCarran International Airport (LAS) all the way to Las Vegas strip or downtown. Trip insurance is one of the programs the airlines offer.
In this Hawaiian Airline review, they are reaching almost a perfect score from customer’s reviews. One reviewer gave the airline a 10/10 rating due to the fairness and attentiveness of the attendants, even though they only flew Economy Class, no sense of degrading happened throughout the flight.

Nothing to add but a hearty recommendation.”
