Currently, United Continental (UAL - Get Report) and Delta (DAL - Get Report) offer non-stop service from their hubs in Newark and Atlanta. Both fly Boeing 767s. Hawaiian said it will be the only carrier to offer complimentary hot meals in all cabins: It will also offer introductory one-way fares of $212 in coach and $808 in first class for tickets purchased this month for travel in June 2012.
The West Coast is Hawaii's largest source of tourists, and it has abundant service to Hawaii from a wide variety of cities. Hawaiian serves 10 U.S. cities. US Airways (LCC) devotes nine Boeing 757s to Phoenix-Hawaii service. However, US Airways' attempt to fly Charlotte-Honolulu, which began in April 2010, was cancelled after just four months.
