Kelly says the new Boeing MAX aircraft, as well as the 737-800, will be the jets they will use for Hawaii flights.
Here’s what he had to say when the new destination was originally announced in 2017:
“A day long-awaited by our customers, fans, and more than 55,000 of the world’s most-loved airline employees is finally within sight—a day that will showcase your hospitality, about as far Southwest as you can go in the U.S. Hawaii is an important place for Southwest Airlines because so many people count on us to take them everywhere they want to go reliably and affordably. We’re ready and excited to address a request we’ve heard for years.”
