American Airlines Announces Increased Flights to Hawaii

American Airlines announced today that it has more service to Hawaii planned. First, it is returning service from Dallas Fort Worth to Kona this year, starting October 27. That makes three Hawaii destinations that American will serve nonstop from its Dallas home: Honolulu, Maui (expanded service), and Kona. American said, “customers will have up to five daily flights to Hawaii from DFW to choose from.”

  1. It would be nice if American Airlines could add Dallas Fort Worth to Kauai Airport and hilo international airport because they don’t have American Airlines that fly there.

  2. We keep hearing about over tourism, yet adding flights will bring a few thousand more people each week. It seems to be a very mixed message. Am I missing something?

  3. Thank you for the updated AA news. I was bummed when they removed the direct DFW/KOA flight, so am happy it’s coming back , albeit only seasonally. I will be booking that vs direct to HNL and then flying to KOA. :-). Appreciate the update!

  4. I would love a 787 to fly from Los Angeles to the Islands. I feel it is a much better airplane than is currently be used. I also wish Hawaiian and Alaska would consider it as well. Apparently they will only use these planes for flights longer than 5-6 hours. What a shame for us!

    1. Hi Nancy.

      Thanks for so many comments over the past number of years! Don’t be surprised to see LA keep a Dreamliner. It’s the kind of route that might well warrant the plane and high airfares up front.


  5. Looking forward to that 787 flight from DFW to OGG for one last time in March. A long flight but if they leave me alone I will sleep most of the way in my lie flat seat.

  6. This is just another example of why HA needs to revisit their poor decision regarding premium economy on their new 787s. It will be easy for me to switch from HA to AA, even though it requires a connection in DFW. Currently the HA airbus wide body from AUS TO HNL has a better seating option in extra comfort, but that all changes with their 787 3-3-3 economy configuration that is coming with NO premium economy!

  7. There are states that I don’t travel through; TX is one of them. So, I will continue to fly through SFO, PHX, or, if needed, to LAX. I usually fly to LIH or KOA.

  8. I’ll soon be flying AA #115 from DFW to HNL in Premium Economy. The ‘meals’ information on the flight “details” says “refreshments” for this 8.5 hour flight. The MAIN cabin, however receives a “snack or brunch”. For free- not for purchase. Can that possibly be correct? AA doesn’t seem to know the answer to that question. As anyone been on that flight? Thanks

    1. Hi Jay.

      We too have found the information on premium economy meal service to be strangely missing. On the other hand, we’ve largely been pleasantly surprised. Good luck.


    2. Just flew AA 123 in Premium on 1 Feb. The refreshments were a just after takeoff beverage service, an early snack, then a light lunch choosing between a could veggie quiche and a turkey wrap with various sides (I didn’t eat one but they did look good) a snack and beverage service towards the end of the flight. No complaints from what I saw.

      Best Regards
