That slot will most likely go to United to fly SFO-HND. HND is prized for generating high paying biz travelers, and it's hard to see that KOA would bring in the necessary revenue for that route.

Theoretically; however both DTW-HND and JFK-HND failed while HNL-HND is thriving with mainly leisure travelers.

JL flew that route until 2010.
