    “…The lack of competition in many island markets now will be worth watching.”

    I’d expect things to get pretty awful for Big-Islanders, since this makes Hawaiian the only way to any of the other islands [other than Mokulele’s super-limited service from Kona]. Maybe Island Air will be able to bring service back? Since their planes are smaller, it might be worth a try at extending a couple of HNL-OGG flights to KOA? It seems like a pretty small risk.

    Other than that, I do have to admit I’m surprised that Hawaii has been able to sustain three carriers flying planes bigger than Cessnas for as long as it has.
