Hawaiian Accepting Aloha Tickets for Free Standby Travel

Hawaiian is accepting Aloha tickets for free Coach Class seating on a first-come, first-served standby basis under the following conditions.

On Monday, March 31, Aloha ticket holders for only Hawaii to U.S. Mainland travel can standby for flights on Hawaiian.

From Tuesday, April 1 through Thursday, April 3, Aloha ticket holders for all interisland and transpacific travel can standby for flights on Hawaiian for the ticketed day of departure only. The following requirements apply to standby travel:

    -- Standby will only be offered to Aloha ticket holders on and for the

    -- An Aloha paper ticket or electronic ticket confirmation must be
       presented in person on the day of departure only.

       credit card chargeback.

       interisland flights.
    -- Holders of Aloha transpacific tickets can standby for Hawaiian's
