Southwest Airlines CEO talks plans, growth for Las Vegas

By Richard N. Velotta
Vegas INC
Monday, 8 August 2011, 3 a.m.

Gary Kelly has a lot on his plate, and that’s very good news for Las Vegas.

The chairman, president and CEO of Dallas-based Southwest Airlines, the busiest commercial air carrier at McCarran International Airport, has been on the go during the past year, which means it’s a lock that his calendar will be full for the next five.

In a short time, Southwest has acquired AirTran, signed deals with Boeing to take delivery of new 737-800 jets that have a larger capacity than the planes the airline now flies, and started a partnership with a Mexican carrier, Volaris, to provide service for Southwest customers to Mexico and Volaris customers to nearly everywhere in the United States.

United DC-Cancun flight diverted to Cuba by odor
Mon, Aug 1, 2011

HAVANA (AP) — A United Airlines jetliner carrying 135 passengers from Washington to a Mexican beach resort made an unplanned landing in Cuba on Sunday after a strange odor was detected on board.

United Airlines Flight 831 left Dulles airport in the morning and was bound for Cancun but instead diverted to Havana around noon after "the crew noticed an unfamiliar smell in the cabin," airline spokesman Charles Hobart said in a statement.

"In an abundance of caution, the pilots decided to land the aircraft at the nearest available airport," he said. "The plane landed routinely and safely in Havana and we are working to re-accommodate our customers."

Gloria Berbena, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Interests Section, which Washington maintains in Havana instead of an embassy since the two nations do not have full diplomatic relations, said a second plane arrived from the United States later Sunday and flew out with the passengers.

Berbena did not know whether they continued to Cancun or returned to the United States, or whether the original aircraft was still in Cuba. U.S. diplomats on the island were in close contact with their Cuban counterparts on the matter, she said.

Cuban airport and government officials contacted by The Associated Press had no immediate comment.

"We have nothing to inform," said an operator who answered the phone at the airport.

No United aircraft could be seen Sunday evening from roads around the airport.

Although the United States and Cuba are bitter Cold War foes, Cuba has a tradition of hospitality and is a signatory to international aviation accords.

On the day of the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington, Havana offered to let the United States use its landing fields because U.S. airports were in a state of chaos. Washington did not take Cuba up on the offer.

There are frequent charter flights back and forth between the two countries and a terminal in Havana is dedicated to receiving planes from the United States.

United Airlines is a subsidiary of United Continental Holdings Inc.

Delta to invest $65M in Grupo Aeromexico
source: Forbes

Delta Air Lines will invest $65 million in Grupo Aeromexico and get a seat on the Mexican airline's board of directors as part of a new, tentative partnership announced Wednesday.

Under the terms of the deal, Delta will receive unspecified shares in Grupo Aeromexico and gain a seat on its board of directors in exchange for its investment.

The transaction must be approved by regulators in Mexico.

The pact also calls for Delta and Aeromexico to expand their existing commercial alliance by linking each other's passenger networks.

That means that the airlines' customers will be able to have access to both companies' airport lounges and accrue and redeem flight awards, among other benefits.

In a separate deal, the two companies also agreed to invest equal shares to build a facility in Mexico that builds on existing repair work between the carriers, as well as third party airlines.

Southwest overture stirs Airbus order hopes
source: Reuters

A top-level exchange between Southwest Airlines Co and Airbus on the commercial success of a new aircraft has raised hopes at the European plane-maker that it might someday break Boeing Co's monopoly at the low-cost U.S. carrier, sources close to the matter said.

Southwest (LUV.N), the world's largest low-cost airline, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in June, has for decades flown only Boeing (BA.N) 737s and has usually shut the door to EADS unit Airbus (EAD.PA).

But after Airbus swept the board at the Paris air show in June with a revamped A320 airliner, Southwest Chief Executive Gary Kelly congratulated Airbus CEO Tom Enders in what some see as a discreet but carefully calibrated overture.

"We are exchanging friendly correspondence, which is a new dimension," a source close to Airbus told Reuters.

Boeing is seen as likely to go all-out to keep Southwest, its biggest customer, and most analysts say Airbus has only a slim chance of breaking its U.S. rival's hold.

A second source stressed that while highlighting the success of Airbus's new A320neo, the letters did not call for negotiations or do much more for now than break the ice.

But the timing of the step has attracted attention as the industry scrutinizes Southwest's actions while Boeing and Airbus offer upgraded fuel-saving models with new engines.

The sources declined to be identified because the letters exchanged between the two CEOs are confidential.

Last month Airbus snagged an order for 260 narrow-body A320 planes from AMR Corp's (AMR.N) American Airlines, previously an all-Boeing customer, and it is jockeying for more sales to other U.S. carriers.

A sale to Southwest, which has long preferred the simplicity of flying just the Boeing 737, would be an even bigger coup.

Airbus and Southwest declined to comment.

"We simply don't speak publicly about potential or future business dealings," said Brad Hawkins, a Southwest spokesman.

The Southwest-Airbus correspondence came after the air show at a time when Boeing was in flux over product strategy but before the pivotal American Airlines deal which forced Boeing to respond with a plan to outfit the 737 with a more fuel-efficient engine, the sources said.

Kelly on Thursday welcomed Boeing's decision to revamp the 737.

"I applaud Boeing for that decision," he told CNBC television. "We're the world leader in the 737, so obviously it's in our selfish interest to see that aircraft improve."

In an interview with Fox Business Network, Kelly said Southwest was not in talks aimed at placing an order with the A320neo. "We're talking exclusively with Boeing and that's only fair because that's what we want to make work," he said.

OTHER OPTIONS?

Southwest on Thursday announced a weaker-than-expected quarterly profit, and its shares tumbled over 7 percent in a broadly lower market.

On a conference call with analysts to discuss the earnings, Kelly said the airline knew about Boeing's re-engining decision in advance -- "which we appreciate."

"We are anxious to sit down with Boeing and understand just what this re-engined airplane is all about," Kelly said. "Boeing continues to be our primary focus. If Boeing can meet our needs, then we can make a commitment. If they don't, well, it's a free country, and we will consider what other options we have."

Kelly said earlier this year the carrier could one day add different types of plane to its fleet..

Canada's Bombardier Inc (BBDb.TO) said in June that it had made a pitch to Southwest for its CSeries planes.

"You get better deals if people know that you have options. So talking to Boeing's competitors, of course, makes perfect financial sense," said Adam Pilarski, senior vice president at AVITAS, an airline consulting company.

"You would have to be nuts not to," he said. "It doesn't mean you necessarily buy. If they buy, it is big news."

Alongside Southwest, Delta Air Lines Inc (DAL.N) and United Continental Holdings Inc (UAL.N) also need to replace older planes.

Henri Courpron, CEO of American International Group Inc (AIG.N) unit International Lease Finance Corp, which leases planes to airlines, said Airbus has shown it could make inroads into Boeing markets. But he doubted the company would severely erode Boeing's footing.

"Ultimately, I expect the re-engined 737 and the Airbus neo to enjoy the kind of market share split that they've had over the years," Courpron told Reuters. "There will be defectors from both camps. But I don't expect that any of the products will run away with a significant market share advantage."

July traffic on Southwest, AirTran rises
source: Businessweek

Passengers did more flying on Southwest and AirTran during July, but the airlines' ability to boost revenue through higher prices slowed.

Southwest Airlines Co. said Friday that a key statistic called passenger revenue per available seat mile rose just 1 percent in July compared with a year ago.

Airlines raised prices paid by consumers several times early this year, but lately have resorted to more sales to fill seats, a sign that travel demand has cooled off.

The revenue figure measures an airline's ability to charge higher prices. The 1 percent rise in July compared to a 4.1 percent increase in the April-June second quarter and 8.7 percent in the first quarter.

CEO Gary Kelly foreshadowed the "very modest" July increase on Thursday, when discussing the company's second-quarter financial results with analysts. He predicted revenue trends will improve in August and September, although he hinted that the pickup would be modest.

Kelly also said that Southwest has "pushed fares about as much as we should right now."

The company also said Friday that traffic on Southwest and AirTran rose 5.9 percent in July. Paying passengers flew 10.13 billion miles last month.

Passenger-carrying capacity rose faster, however -- up 6.6 percent -- which left more empty seats. The average flight was 85.1 percent full last month, compared with 85.6 percent in July 2010.

Southwest, traditionally a short-haul airline, shifted a bit more flying to longer trips. The average flight was 992 miles, up from 940 miles a year earlier.

For the first seven months of the year, traffic was up 8.8 percent and capacity rose 6.5 percent.

For both 2011 and 2010, the figures include Southwest and AirTran, which Southwest acquired in May.

#HA | Hawaiian Airlines




Overview of Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian is the nation's highest-ranked carrier for service quality and performance in 2009 in the 20th annual Airline Quality Rating study, having earned that distinction in three of the past four years. Hawaiian has also led all U.S. carriers in on-time performance for each of the past six years (2004-2009) and has been an industry leader in fewest misplaced bags during that same period (#1 from 2005-2007, #2 in 2008 and 2009) as reported by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Consumer surveys by Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure and Zagat have all ranked Hawaiian the top domestic airline offering flights to Hawaii.

Now in its 81st year of continuous service for Hawaii, Hawaiian is the state's biggest and longest-serving airline, as well as the largest provider of passenger air service to Hawaii from the state's primary visitor markets on the U.S. mainland. Hawaiian offers nonstop service to Hawaii from more U.S. gateway cities (10) than any other airline, as well as service to the Philippines, Australia, American Samoa, Tahiti and, in the coming months, Japan and South Korea. Hawaiian also provides more than 150 daily jet flights between the Hawaiian Islands.

---

Fast forward to 2001. We began a comprehensive fleet modernization program with the delivery of 13 new Boeing 717-200 aircraft that would completely replace our DC-9 fleet. In 2002 and 2003, we completely replaced our widebody DC-10 fleet with 14 Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. Even more recently, we added our first long-range Airbus A330-200 aircraft in April 2010 (with plans to add 27 more by the end of the decade). As a result, Hawaiian Airlines' fleet is now among the youngest in the industry.

Today, Hawaiian Airlines carries an average 8 million customers a year and serves 20 domestic and international destinations in the Pacific region. In North America, it provides daily service to Hawaii from more cities than any other airline. While plenty has changed throughout the years, one thing hasn’t: our commitment to service, safety, and the spirit of aloha.

Hawaiian Airlines traffic jumps 11.7 percent
source: Businessweek

HONOLULU

Traffic on Hawaiian Airlines rose 11.7 percent in July but there were a few more empty seats as the growth failed to keep pace with the airline's ambitious expansion.

Passengers flew 926.7 million miles last month, up from 829.9 million in July 2010.

Capacity rose 13.6 percent, to 1.09 available seat miles. A seat mile is one seat flying one mile. Airlines increase capacity by adding flights, using bigger planes or flying longer distances.

With capacity outstripping traffic growth, average occupancy dipped to 85.2 percent from 86.7 percent a year earlier.

For the year through July, traffic was up 18.9 percent, capacity rose 19.9 percent, and occupancy slipped to 84.2 percent from 85 percent last year.

Hawaiian Airlines is a unit of Hawaiian Holdings Inc.

Hawaiian Airlines and Aloha Stadium Team Up On New Playing Field - “Hawaiian Airlines Field at Aloha Stadium”
source: HA press release

Starting this fall, local and visiting athletes will enjoy the benefits of a brand new playing field at Aloha Stadium. The state-of-the-art playing surface is part of a new sponsorship agreement between Hawaiian Airlines and Aloha Sports Properties, the Stadium’s exclusive advertising representative. The multi-year sponsorship agreement includes renaming the field to Hawaiian Airlines Field at Aloha Stadium as well as providing funding for future field upgrades and for University of Hawaii Athletics travel expenses.

Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO, said, “Having a high-quality field is important for our local athletes, and for attracting high-profile events that benefit the community and showcase Hawaii. We are pleased to use funds from our marketing budget to contribute to these much-needed improvements and increasing our support of the home team at UH.”

The new field is the centerpiece of extensive renovations being made from top to bottom at Aloha Stadium in preparation for the start of the 2011 Hawaii high school and University of Hawaii Warrior football seasons. The UBU Speed Series S5-M turf (the newest generation of synthetic turf), will provide more padding with 2-1/2-inch “grass” blades, improved durability, and better drainage.

“We appreciate Hawaiian Airlines coming forward with its sponsorship of this outstanding new field. We are planning to unveil the new surface on August 11. It’s an exciting time for all the athletes who will be competing this upcoming season,” said Scott Chan, Aloha Stadium manager.

Hawaiian has a long history of supporting local sports for high school student-athletes statewide, and currently serves as title sponsor of the Hawaiian Airlines Hawaii High School Athletic Association Basketball State Championships for boys and girls in Division I and Division II.

Christopher Chun, executive director of the Hawaii High School Athletic Association, noted, “We are excited about the new playing surface, which will be much better for our kids. Hawaiian Airlines has been a major supporter of high school sports over the years and Aloha Stadium is the pinnacle for our student athletes, so I think this sponsorship is a great fit.”

Hawaiian was the University of Hawaii Athletics Department’s first title sponsor 24 years ago and continues to be a major supporter of UH Athletics, serving as title sponsor of the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic basketball tournament and the Hawaiian Airlines Wahine Volleyball Classic.

Terms of the new Aloha Stadium sponsorship agreement were not disclosed.

About Aloha Stadium

Located in Central Oahu, the Aloha Stadium is Hawaii’s largest outdoor arena, home to the University of Hawaii Warriors football team and the annual NFL Pro Bowl. In addition, the Aloha Stadium hosts a multitude of events attracting visitors from around the State including soccer matches, concerts, car shows, fairs and the ever popular Aloha Stadium Swap Meet & Marketplace.

Hawaiian Ranks #1 with Travelers to Hawaii – Travel + Leisure Magazine
source: HA press release

The readers of Travel + Leisure have voted and ranked Hawaiian Airlines as the top U. S. carrier serving Hawaii, according to the magazine’s 2011 World’s Best Awards.

Blaine Miyasato, Hawaiian’s vice president of product development, credits the authenticity of Hawaiian’s “Hawaii flies with us” service experience for the high ranking. Miyasato says the Hawaiian Airlines experience begins well before you arrive and is celebrated throughout each flight with the culture, natural beauty, people, and aloha spirit of Hawaii.

“We’re thrilled the readers of Travel + Leisure recognize the careful thought and effort we put into making a trip to and from Hawaii as enjoyable as possible,” said Miyasato. “Starting from our initial encounter, we embrace our guests with the true spirit of aloha, and show them what makes Hawaii such a beautiful experience through the sights, sounds and tastes of the islands.”

Hawaiian’s quality of service to travelers goes beyond its distinctive brand of service. Along with being the nation’s best on-time airline and offering conveniently scheduled daily, nonstop flights from 10 gateway cities, Hawaiian is the only U.S. carrier serving Hawaii to provide complimentary meals in coach and use exclusively wide-body, twin-aisle aircraft for all of its transpacific flights.


Readers of Travel + Leisure were invited by the magazine earlier this year to rate the quality of service offered by domestic carriers in four categories: cabin comfort, in-flight service, customer service, and value. Hawaiian came out as the top-ranked carrier serving Hawaii and ranked third overall following Virgin America and JetBlue Airways.

Travel + Leisure is one of the travel industry’s most respected publications with a readership largely comprised of sophisticated world travelers. The magazine’s 2011 World Best Awards is published in the August issue and, in addition to airlines, includes rankings of the best hotels, cities, islands, cruise lines, tour operators and safari outfitters, rental-car agencies, destination spas, and hotel spas worldwide.

some news from last month:

Hawaiian Changes First Bag Fee for Interisland Service
source: HA press release

HONOLULU – July 26, 2011 - Hawaiian Airlines today announced that it will change its baggage service fee for the first piece of checked luggage on interisland flights from $10 to $17, effective September 1, 2011. All other baggage fees for travel on Hawaiian remain unchanged. The following are exempt from the change:

 Members of Hawaiian’s Premier, Pualani Gold and Pualani Platinum clubs

 Corporate members who book their tickets through Hawaiian’s corporate portal

 Customers traveling in first class

 Active U.S. military personnel traveling on military or government fares

 Car seats, infant carriers, or strollers when customers are traveling with a child

 Wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes, and other personal assistive devices

Glenn Taniguchi, Hawaiian’s senior vice president of marketing and sales, said the change will be the first that Hawaiian has instituted for interisland service since September 2009. “We have changed other fees in step with the rest of the airline industry but have held the line on interisland baggage fees for the past two years. Unfortunately, increasing costs of operation make this adjustment unavoidable,” Taniguchi said. “Our fees for interisland service remain lower than anywhere else in our system.”

Hawaiian Airlines Sydney-Honolulu Service To Go Daily Year-Round - Daily Flight Schedule Starts December 14
source: HA press release

Responding to increasing demand for its service to Hawaii from Australia, Hawaiian Airlines will increase its service from five flights a week to year-round daily nonstop flights between Sydney and Honolulu starting December 14.

“Australians are increasingly finding great value in Hawaii vacations, and demand for our services has never been greater,” said Glenn Taniguchi, Hawaiian’s senior vice president of marketing and sales. “The arrival of another aircraft later this year will allow us to meet the increased demand starting in December.”


The company in April increased its Sydney flight schedule from four days per week to daily for the peak winter season and, because of aircraft availability, will operate five days per week between August 3 and December 13, before starting year-round daily service on December 14.

Hawaiian’s Flight #452 will depart Sydney Airport daily at 9:20 p.m. and arrive at Honolulu International Airport at 10:10 a.m. the same day. Return Flight #451 will depart Honolulu daily at 11:50 a.m. and arrive in Sydney at 7:20 p.m. the following day. (Sydney is currently 20 hours ahead of Honolulu and the flight crosses the International Dateline.)

Hawaiian flies a wide-body Boeing 767-300ER aircraft on the Sydney route. The twin-aisle B767 comfortably seats up to 264 passengers with 18 in Business Class and the remainder in Economy Class.

Adding to the enjoyment of the Hawaii travel experience is Hawaiian’s promise to “start your Hawaii vacation the moment you board” with its distinctive and award-winning “Hawaii Starts Here” onboard service, showcasing the culture, music, natural beauty, and people of the Hawaiian Islands.

last month Hawaiian Airlines started a new service to Osaka:

Hawaiian’s New Osaka Service a Boost to Hawaii Tourism
source: HA press release

HONOLULU – July 13, 2011 - Hawaiian Airlines today completed its inaugural roundtrip from Osaka, Japan, the first of its daily, nonstop flights that will give Hawaii’s visitor industry a significant boost in arrivals from Japan’s second-most populous region.

Hawaiian is adding approximately 100,000 new air seats annually from Osaka to Honolulu and the response to its unique brand of service has been extremely positive with strong bookings going forward, a combination that is good news for Hawaii’s resorts, attractions, and ancillary businesses that rely on the vitality of tourism.

“We are thrilled about getting our new Osaka route underway, and even more so about the tremendous response from our new base of customers in the Kansai region,” said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO. “This route is going to be great for Hawaii’s tourism industry and the people who depend on its success.”

Hawaiian welcomed customers on today’s inaugural flight from Osaka to Hawaii in the tradition of the islands’ Aloha Spirit, greeting them upon arrival with fresh flower lei, Hawaiian music and hula. During the flight, customers enjoyed a customized version of Hawaiian’s authentic “Hawaii Starts Here” inflight service program, combining a showcase of Hawaii’s culture, people, natural beauty, and Aloha Spirit hospitality, with new pan-Asian cuisine, Japanese entertainment options, and special onboard products for the enjoyment of the Japanese traveler. The style and quality of service exemplifies the distinctiveness of Hawaiian as an airline and Hawaii as a travel destination.

Hawaiian is initially operating the Honolulu-Osaka flights with its 264-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, with plans to introduce its new 294-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft onto the route, just as it did in making the transition last week with its service between Honolulu and Tokyo.
