As Hawaii faces a ‘tipping point’ in tourism, Southwest Airlines could bring relief

HONOLULU — As Dallas-based Southwest Airlines ramps up its service to Hawaii with 28 daily flights by the end of May, the state is facing a problem in managing the growing number of visitors to the island who spend less money here every year.

“We’re not at a crisis point yet. We’re at a tipping point. We have so many visitors, we need to get serious about creating management programs,” said Frank Haas, a travel industry veteran who is the former marketing director at the Hawaii Tourism Authority and formerly served as an Assistant Dean at the University of Hawaii.

Haas joined James Mak, a professor emeritus at the University of Hawaii and Paul Brewbaker, a longtime economist who worked for the Bank of Hawaii, to write a nine-page white paper last month which details how Hawaii has failed to manage tourism.

“Yeah, I would even say we struck a nerve so to speak. We wrote about what a lot of (local) people are already thinking,” Brewbaker said.

Strike At Waikiki Hotel Prompts Lawsuit From Couple On Honeymoon


Search Hawaii Flights and Hotels

A couple from North Carolina is suing Marriott and Kyo-Ya Hotels and Resorts, saying they were not informed about the ongoing hotel workers strike before coming to the islands for their honeymoon.

The class-action lawsuit filed this week states that the couple had only limited services at the hotel, yet they were still charged full price ($2,391) for their five-night stay.

The suit stated,“The hotel provided limited or no housekeeping services, no valet parking service, no room service, no pool attendants, and very limited to no on-site restaurant and bar service,”

Keith Vieira, a former Starwood and Sheraton hotel executive, said “Nobody wins in this. The workers really don’t recover the funds, the tips they would have gotten so they suffer,”
