Well it’s official, Aloha is ceasing operations as of April 1, and this is no April Fool’s joke. To be honest I don’t know a lot about Aloha and haven’t followed this very closely, but that seems to have been fast! I know they didn’t have a lot of cash, but only a few days between declaring bankruptcy and ceasing operations seems crazy. The other strange thing is that Aloha started allowing UA elites into their lounges just a few weeks ago, so it makes you wonder if they were so desperate for booze sales to generate a little extra revenue or what. I’m curious to hear whether or not this changes fares at all within Hawaii, since a major player is now gone. My best wishes to the employees of Aloha and the company as a whole!
