This is not a rarebird report, but a juicy rumor. I've heard that later on this month, there will be an announcement by the State of Hawaii regarding renovation and expansion at HNL. The amount being thrown around is in the billions of dollars and the first phase done in about 2-1/2 years.
There also have been a few recent ground handling changes. Aloha has been steadily losing contracts, recently losing the under wing handling for ATA to Worldwide. Although Worldwide has picked up a lot of ground handling contracts, they will also be losing their largest account in HNL, Continental. Apparently, a new company from Guam will be taking over passenger service and cargo. Harmony also has switched their ground handler. Hawaiian now does passenger service, loading, and cleaning for Harmony.
