Hawaiian Airlines: "The tide of industry capacity between the US West Coast and Hawai‘i is beginning to recede and our new international routes are maturing, both of which are helpful developments. The strengthening of the US dollar against our major foreign currencies is pushing the other way. Indeed, were it not for foreign exchange effects, our third quarter results would have been the best in the company’s history,” Mark Dunkerley, President and CEO.
