Luckily for passengers, Hawaiian Airlines is definitely NOT on Hawaiian time. The airline carrier was once again the most punctual. According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, 91-percent of Hawaiian’s flights arrived on time in March.

It would have been a different story had they actually been on Hawaiian time. Dillydallying does not sound like an admirable trait in the airline industry. Airline service and flights should be prompt, and Hawaiian seems to be doing just that.

Additionally, Hawaiian Airlines tops the board for fewest flights cancelled. A rate of six out of 6,000 flights cancelled is quite impressive, with all of its recent flight route expansions. In all my years of traveling, I don’t believe I have ever been on a Hawaiian flight that got cancelled.

And probably one of the biggest concerns for any traveler, baggage issues. Whether they’re lost or mishandled, Hawaiian Airlines has had the least number of complaints in that department. Phew, I don’t know what I’d ever do if I found out my luggage got lost! A travel nightmare, for sure.


  1. I am continually reminded how epic our local airline is!!! Just spent 10 days with some wonderful clients form Australia, touring them throughout the hawaiian islands. Had to coordinate flight times, pickups, tours, etc with ample amount of stress built into such schedulig. ALWAYS a pleasure to board a flight, no matter time of day or local airport, everyone is always gracious, filled with kokua and kahiau(selfless generosity).  Chances are you'll know an attendant or pilot if you've been flying with them long enough. I love the warm greeting you get almost every time from the pilot as you board.  Unseen in vaste expanses of the world! carry on…
