This past weekend, my good buddy Chris McGinnis alerted travelers to some unfortunate news: Hawaiian Airlines’s three highly anticipated non-stop flights between the Bay Area and Hawaii have seen their launch dates unexpectedly cancelled or deferred thanks to delays in the delivery of the airline’s new Airbus A321neo jets.
Writes Chris: “A new non-stop service between Oakland International Airport and Kona (Big Island) along with an added summer flight between San Francisco International Airport and Honolulu were both cancelled. Both flights were scheduled to launch in late May. Another new non-stop between Oakland and Lihue (Kauai) that was scheduled to launch on April 11 will not operate until July 15.
Hawaiian Airlines says passengers who were booked on the affected flights will be contacted directly and rebooked on its other flights serving the Bay Area. Passengers who have not been contacted can call the airline’s reservations department at (800) 367-5320.”
If you’re booked on Hawaiian Airlines, make sure to double-check your flights and seat assignments. If the airline has changed your flight and you’re not happy, you can ask for an alternate flight or for a refund.
