Agreed - pretty sure this is the lucky B738 who will go to HNL today - it was ferried in from DAL yesterday....no scheduled flights for 2 days too....enough for a two day trip to the HI islands....

A couple pictures of the plane at OAK! Gate 32 is hard to get good pics of though from the passenger terminal. (I bet there are some nice pics that someone has from the ramp though!) Hope to see some pics of the bird in Hawaii in a few hours!

Not hating on SW at all but I think it's hilarious that they've hyped this up so much! Giving away the companion pass to all of those CA people (who said they were going to use it to fly to Hawaii) and by the time they start scheduled flights, everyone's CPs will have expired. I don't fully understand why SW is any different to HI than any other airline. Prices to Hawaii aren't too expensive as it is, most people have co-branded credit cards that allow free checked bags (I have never once needed more than one) and most airlines offer better entertainment and food options.

Haha. No.

Airlines racked up over $4.5 BILLION dollars in baggage fees in 2017.

Uh oh. If the airplane is over the south Pacific, they better turn around fast! HNL is 21 N.

Not everyone lives in California though and for some of us it's pretty expensive just to get to CA.
