Here we go again. We see it all before. Don't be fooled. Alaska Air will not sign any agreementwith an airline that is as provisional as the weather today. Makulele loads are in the 20s and it won't be long until Republic will ger fed up of bankrolling Makulele and move on.

Stay tuned.

Nice local crew there Mr. Boyer. So no concern for local jobs here? Bring them in from wherever and build an airline like Hawaiian or Aloha. Sorry buddy peoples entire lives, blood, sweat, and a million tears have gone into making these companies that you now try to destroy. Just another pollywog that shows up to steal local jobs under the pretense of an airline exec. Very sad!

And the the sad part is that Mr. Boyer is an opportunistic turncoat. Until couple of months ago he was operating as Go Express. He was put in business by JO and now kept in it by Republic Air.

This is your concerned "local" boy.

There must not be a lot of shame in making bad business these days in Hawii.

In Hawii there is huge problem and that problem is MESA. Big Boyer is Jon Ornstains spawn! Ornsteins spew is all over Hawii tourist industry.

Judge King should force ornstain to clean up his mess with Mokulele and thrown them both down the well.

Boyer was in bed with Ornstein...he signed on with GO! Express. He helped Ornstein with the money losing fares. Now he is for the locals and former Aloha employees. C'mon now.

Not exactly true but the jist is right. Boyer had Mokulele without Mesa's help. But Boyer used Mesa when it gave him some advantage and now that he sees the financial troubles theat Mesa is having, he's become opportunistic. In essence, he's biting the hand that fed him. Isn't it ironic that these two (Boyer and Ornstein) operate in very similar fashion? These two would eat their young if it meant more $$$.

Doesn't he still operate as go! express. As Judge K asked "is it just about money?" Sure, fly as go! express and Mokulele, rake in twice as much.$$ Why digest the hand that feed you if you can live off of it.

This is from FORBES magazine regarding Ornstein Felony Convictions........

A Hawaii bankruptcy judge's recent finding ordering Phoenix's Mesa Air Group (nasdaq: MESA - news - people ) to pay $80 million for misusing a rival's confidential data isn't the first blot on the résumé of Jonathan G. Ornstein, who runs the airline. As FORBES reported years ago, the SEC in 1992 upheld a fine and multiyear suspension as a stockbroker--his prior career. The agency cited unauthorized trading, misrepresentation and frustrating investigators. Ornstein's official disciplinary record printout back then: 21 feet long. In the new case the judge said that Mesa's now fired chief financial officer covered up evidence on his own but that the regional carrier benefited. Mesa disputes the finding, is appealing and calls it unfair to cite old Ornstein baggage. Mesa shares recently traded at $3.90--down 72% over four years.--William P. Barrett tions from the SEC.

If i could give them zero stars, I would!! They cancelled my flight from Kauai to Honolulu in December 2009. I have still not received my refund. Furthermore, their customer service department has put it on me to call them back every time I want to know the status. Their account department claims that a refund was issued in March, but I have checked my statement, along with calling my credit card company...but no refund was given. Just to be clear, Mokulele Airlines cancelled my flight a few hours before boarding, forcing me to purchase a second flight home from another airlines, but will not give me my money back. I consider that stealing. I will never fly them again.
