Good Week

Hawaiian Airlines The Honolulu-based carrier saw rising fuel prices wipe out revenue gains to leave it $19.9 million in the red for the first quarter, but the subsequent demise of rivals Aloha and ATA gave a boost to its plans to raise inter-island fares and charge for second pieces of checked luggage.

He added: "After overcoming today's extremely challenging economic and credit environment to negotiate terms for a round of financing, it is regrettable that we were forced to take this action."
