Effective immediately, customers holding tickets issued on or before  Wednesday,
February 6, 2013  for travel on Hawaiian this  Friday, February 8, and 
Saturday, February 9, between the U.S. East Coast (including travel connecting
in the U.S. East Coast) and Hawai'i, will be permitted to change their
reservations without charge to flights departing on or before  Tuesday, February
12, 2013.  

All change fees and applicable difference in fares will be waived provided that
changes are made prior to the departure time of the originally scheduled flight
and are made in the same class of service (i.e., Coach to Coach or First to
First), based on seat availability and subject to the restrictions noted above. 


Flight changes must be made by Hawaiian's personnel in its reservations
department or at the airport. Normal refund rules will apply. Customers needing
assistance should call Hawaiian's reservations department at the toll-free
number 1-800-367-5320.  

Hawaiian's Flight 50 from  Honolulu  to JFK on  February 8  and Flight 51 from
JFK to  Honolulu  on  February 9  are currently expected to operate on schedule.
However, the departure times for both flights may change, depending on the
weather conditions resulting from  Winter Storm Nemo. Customers holding tickets
for these two flights are advised to check Hawaiian's website, 
www.HawaiianAir.com, for any updates before leaving for the airport.
