Strong demand in each of the major geographies we serve, continued cost control and some small but welcome easing of fuel prices all played a part. Particularly noteworthy has been the return of traffic on our services to Japan,” Mark Dunkerley, President and CEO. Source: Hawaiian Airlines, 18-Oct-2011.
