HAWAII HAS NEW JET SERVICE!
In a previous post, I had mentioned that there was going to be a new entrant into the Hawaii interisland jet service market. Republic Airlines has signed an agreement with our local Mokulele Airline to bring the Embraer 170 Regional Jet to Hawaii. There are now 2 aircraft in service and I had the pleasure of flying on one of them today.
The jet seats 70 passengers but today there were only 2 of us for a very unique flying experience. We were directed to the vacant first class area which easily has the most comfortable seats I've experienced. Windows are unusually wide and positioned at just the right height. It seats 2 on each side except in first class which is 1 + 2 meaning there are no middle seats. We were offered soft drinks, water, juice, and coffee. The other airlines offer only water and sometimes juice. The plane was brand new and looked it. Not only was the flight itself comfortable but the 1 piece of checked luggage (mine) was on the conveyor belt before I could walk to baggage claim.
Brazil has a real winner with this aircraft and so does Mokulele Airlines. It's size seems just right for interisland service fitting in between the small Go Airlines jet and the larger Hawaiian Airlines jet. Service is not yet offered to Maui but I would guess that will be added next year when they expand their fleet from 2 to 4 aircraft.
Aloha and happy flying when you come to visit Hawaii!
