The government didn't just make up the rule that you mention, it's been this way forever. Molokai Shuttle was a scheduled airline but changed to a cheaper to operate on demand type operation, or so they said. They attempted to skate around federal aviation regulations and they got caught. Why should they be exempt from rules that all other airlines abide by? Put another way, they cut corners. Do you really want to fly on an airline that cuts corners?
Check your ***** facts before saying anything here. Tropical Air AKA Air Molokai was and had been a FAA Part 135 Charter (on demand) Airline operation from day one, not a FAA Part 121 Scheduled Airline. It maintained an approximate on demand schedule subject to change without notice, not a fully scheduled operation. It was the other airlines and their huge legal departments complaining and complaining to the FAA that caused all the problems and finally resulting changes by the FAA in the interpatations of their Regulations which they have since reversed but too late for Air Molokai. Air Molokai was a very safe operation that met the peoples needs at a moderate prices with highly qualified professional crews and well maintained aircraft, which was seen as a threat by the other airlines' to their profit and passenger base.

First of all Aloha was in deep deep @%^&** before Go came to the islands,with there criminal management team,Aloha was flying 45 year old outdated gas guzzlers aircraft,Everyone wants to blame Go but think what happened after Aloha went bankrupt Aloha's Ceo demanded his bonus salary while other employees took it in the shorts, So all Aloha employees and others who see Go as the bad guy you need to wake up and see the real picture.

Bring back our locally based telephone reservation people. I'm exasperated by the phone people they have outsourced to in the Philippines. I can barely understand many of the HAL operators now. On top of that, I have caught some of them giving bad or untrue information. Bring back our locally based reservation and customer assistance people!
I whole heartedly agree with your statement. There have been several times I've had to ask for a floor supervisor so that I could understand the answers to my questions. And you are correct, sometimes information is inaccurately given. There was a sense of "Aloha" when you spoke to a local agent.

I like traveling with Hawaiian Airlines, but it is getting to be extremely expensive to fly between the mainland and Honolulu. Add on the baggage fees with the decrease in your weight allowance (I remember when 75 pounds was the limit) and it is very painful to visit family and friends. I would love to see Jet Blue begin a route between Long Beach and Honolulu.

Hawaii is financially hurting. Find a less expensive way to bring over the tourists and former locals and we will help your economy. People want to visit.

Thanks for logging in your opinion.

Trans Air was and is still operating an on demand charter, why doesn't the FAA bother them? Air Molokai said they were an on demand but they sure looked like scheduled airline which is why they got in trouble with the feds. Here's a link to an old Air Molokai timetable. In the past they were a scheduled commuter airline.
