Do your 321ís have 1 or 2 jumpseats? Also are they able to make PDX-OGG in the winter with a full load? Thanks.

They will all have two jumpseats. Weight hasn't been an issue at all with the PDX-OGG routes, in my experience.

Nope.. we specifically and purposely picked an a/c that wouldn't be able to fly the leg for 3-6 months of the year... we purposely decided to reduce our revenue, and bump passengers.

Thanks for the info. I assumed it would t be a problem, but I donít want to be the guy sitting at the gate when a dozen seats leave empty like a 73.

Youíve heard of 737ís at airlines named Aloha, Delta, and Alaska? Not uncommon for airplanes to underperform.

The A321 neo burns roughly 4000-5000 lbs of fuel an hour , it can take 52,000 lbs of fuel on a full tank. That thing can stay aloft for 10 hours before the engines quit.

I get what you're saying. However, most of these airlines use their 737's for other than mainland to Hawaii in the winter (Aloha had no choice with the a/c they had at the time.)... That Alaskan 737 also goes up and down the West Coast and makes its way East all week long. A little lost revenue for a turn to Hawaii mid pairing won't hurt them as bad.


We specifically do nothing but 4-6hr flights with these planes... With todays technology and data I would be shocked and disappointed if our management didn't research this.



We fuel our NEO's to maybe half full +/- for those flights.
