86 thoughts on “Three Airlines Fast-Chopping Hawaii Routes In Shakeup”

  1. Longtime Alaska Bay Area to Lihue flyer. I’m at wits end. First Alaska stopped flights out of Oakland. Now its impossible to find an Alaska nonstop to Kauai anywhere in the Bay Area. Flying out of Seattle is unacceptable. I don’t understand. Those flights were full, and brought in a lot of revenue.

  2. I am so disappointed that Alaska Airlines pulled their OAK-OGG nonstop. Alaska completely pulled all Non Stops from Oakland. I would rather have my fingernails pulled out than fly Southwest Airlines (saving money just isn’t worth the absolute torture of a Southwest flight, not kidding!) so I’ve had to change over to Hawaiian Airlines direct OAK-OGG. Hawaiian has a nice service but its fares and mileage are much more expensive than Alaska Airlines. Alaska, please come back to OAK!

    1. I actually Love flying Southwest, so much so that I will gladly take them over any other airline! Their seat pitches are better and I actually have a shot at getting an exit row seat without having to pay a king’s ransom for it!!

  3. We were loyal frequent customers on the Alaska to Maui direct flights from Sacramento and pray they will reinstate them. I always felt Southwest would probably bail at some point because the flights I was on were never full. Alaska please bring back the flights from SMF to OGG

  4. I cancelled my Alaska Air CC after they removed the non stop from Sacramento to Maui. Hope they bring it back so Hawaiian doesn’t have a monopoly and prices get even higher

  5. It’s doubtful, however, is there a slight chance that with Hawaiians resentful remarks about tourism has made a lasting impact? Be careful what you wish for, reduced tourism will be coming sooner than expected! I believe that profit motivation is driving these changes and could tighten the belt on the entire process of flying to Hawaii. Until I am ready to book another Hawaii Vacation I’m just going to sit and watch, should be an interesting time for everyone.

  6. We invested in a Maui condo in large part because of Southwest’s significant entry into that market. I am very disheartened by the contraction. It feels like a bait-ans-switch. Southwest is making a huge mistake going so all-in on interisland flights. Travelers want nonstop directly to the outer islands!

    1. We did too. I have a large family with many little ones now I worry it will be too hard for them to even visit us. I was comforted with the fact that I could fly back relatively quickly in an emergency. Now I just don’t know.
