Go! Airlines....Gone

Honolulu Advertiser headline today....Gone!

Starting April 1, Go! Airlines will stop operating in Hawaii. According to the news article, Mesa Airlines who owns Go!, could not sustain operating in the Hawaiian market as it has not turned any profits. Their aggressive pricing of $19 one way when they started operating in Hawaii have hurt them ( and many blame Go! for putting Aloha Airlines out of business which resulted in the biggest layoff of around 2000 employees ). Locals have not really warmed up to the airline because of this ( again according to the news article )

This leaves Hawaiian Airlines with no competition on inter island flights and can very well result in higher inter island fares. We shall see in the next few months ...

Hard to believe they will ever actually 'take off'.

Good, wish the rest of Mesa would go with them.
