Some Hawaii News...

Sadly we lost a couple of airlines here...Aloha and ATA. I'm not sure if ATA has other routes not going back and forth to Hawaii..but Aloha was one of our interisland airlines. Here is the latest on the airline situation from our Channel 2 News ..they say that there are more airlines expected to fall.

We watched on the news a report about the special job fair set up for all the empolyees who are suddenly having to look for jobs. Some of them have been employed by the airlines for 30+ years and don't even know how to begin to look for a job..let alone know how to fill out the electronic ways of doing it now. The article I just linked to brought out that a total of 190 private- and public-sector employers came forward during the week to provide potential jobs for displaced Aloha Airlines employees.

I feel so badly for everyone :(
