    Uh, your post seems to be missing a question mark.

    Not entirely out of the question. LAX-HNL is a very competitive market, though usually it's with connecting flights instead of O/D.

    NRT makes sense since DL used to fly a 747 on that route (or still does), and I'm surprised there's as much traffic to LAS to require one. I could see a 772 on some of these flights instead of a 380 though.

    It is decidedly not a done deal. Stating it as fact is somewhere between irresponsible and ludicrous.

    If any US carrier can make a claim that the type works for its route network and business model then that would be Hawaiian. And picking them up dirt cheap on the second hand market opens up some interesting opportunities. But it is far from a decision.

    Question marks added to title. I was not trying to imply that this is a done deal

    But I still wouldn't give them a dollar for a ride.
