Noice thread, although you might want to get the Alaska thing out of the way before people show up here saying Hawaiian is merging with Alaska lol


Been working on it for about 5 minutes already. 😂


Alaska is buying Hawaiian. Guess this won’t last too long…


Ture. It’s like the same thing between JetBlue and Spirit. Nothing happened


Except this is confirmed.

I can feed you all of the leaks before it even hits the press. The rumors/leaks started about 1-2hrs before the official press release was announced. 😂

I gotchu broski!


Lopi Hoʻopuka hou loa | Thread Update

Alaska Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines announced this morning that the former will acquire the latter. Initially, both airlines will operate as separate entities, until the acquisition is approved by the US Government, and under Alaska’s operating certificate.

Wait alska bought Hawaiian.
Wonder what will happen with that one if it is true.

No, they are not merging. Merging is different from being acquired, Hawaiian will operate independently and on their own, under the Alaska group. If they were merged you would see things happening similar to what happened to Virgin America and Alaska.

I fixed your centering. Its killing me. Just center the title and pic. lol. Whole body center looks silly. 😜


Thanks. Didnʻt know how to do that yet…

I wonder if alska will move some of the 787 orders to sea.

Finish the centered area with </div>. Go into your post and you’ll see where I added it just after the image. If you omit that part, it centers the whole thing.


They will not, as Hawaiian planes are staying Hawaiian, if AS wanted 787ʻs theyʻd order their own.

Good to know another way to mess with you! 😜


Try editing that now HA!
