OAK-Hawaii routes

I have been thinking about taking the inaugural flight from OAK-LIH in late March and had to look up the information on Alaskaworld.com to find the right dates but I'm confused about the times. In the following link the times are listed don't match what Alaskaair.com is showing. Did they change the flight times? Also, it looks like the flights are doing well based on seat maps and airfare. Does anyone have information on how these flights are doing? I would also like to see how flights to Maui and Kona are doing especially since HA is starting service from OAK-Maui.

Actually, AS will inauguration on effective March 28, 2011 for OAK-LIH & SJC-LIH goes on effective March 27, 2011. I believe these routes should be done extremely very well. I think it is fourth-weekly frequencies for OAK-LIH and also, SJC-LIH will have trice-weekly service. I think it should be done very well. There is no competitions against another carriers. If you choosing for which the specific date if you flying from OAK-LIH for every Mon. Wed., Fri, Sat.

Our OAK-OGG flights were packed last October. Not really a surprise as UA charges double for the same flight from SFO.

I predict the LIH flights will do even better and probably command higher fares because there are even fewer competitor flights to LIH whereas just about everyone flies to OGG from the west coast (or via HNL). UA has been charging $800 for economy tix on SFO-LIH due to lack of competition but that's gonna change soon.

OAK-OGG packed last Friday- oversold in fact.

A 745a flight at OAK is very convenient too, presuming one is near OAK because there are virtually no flights out of Terminal 1 that hour, so security is a breeze. If OAK-LIH leaves at 720p, that should be a good time too.
