Hawaiian bucks the trend

Amidst the dismal employment statistics released today by the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics, Hawaiian Airlines is at least giving a glimer of hope by actually expanding its employee ranks.

Hawaiian says it has hired 100 employees — mechanics, ramp agents and service agents — during the last few months, and aims to add an additional 170 positions, largely pilots and flight attendants to support operations of its new Airbus A330-200s. The first aircraft is schedueld for delivery in April.

And what does the BTS data show?  US airlines employed 6.3% fewer workers in June compared with a year ago. It’s the 12th consecutive monthly decrease in the number of full time employees working at carriers.

So Hawaiian plans to grow its number of employees 7% by early next year. Any bets on how much overall employee ranks will contract by then?
