Hawaiian Holdings: “Our results for the quarter were disappointing but unsurprising. Our performance was undermined by an extraordinary increase in total industry capacity between Hawaii and the U.S. West Coast and in certain international markets during what is traditionally the weakest quarter of the year. However, good cost control and an improvement in our Neighbor Island segment helped offset some of the impact during the period. Looking ahead, published schedules show capacity beginning to decline in the second half which should improve the operating environment,” Mark Dunkerley, President and CEO.
