Hawaiian Airlines: “We are pleased with the fourth quarter results which continue the trend of improvement that began mid-year. Good cost control and fare increases enabled us to offset the 35% increase in the price of fuel. It is particularly noteworthy that these results were posted during a period in which our operations grew rapidly,” Mark Dunkerley, president and CEO. Source: Hawaiian Airlines, 31-Jan-2012.
