Aloha to cut interisland flight schedule Dec. 2

HONOLULU -- Aloha Airlines will reduce its interisland flight schedule by about 20% beginning Dec. 2.

Changes include a decrease in Maui-Honolulu service from 23 daily flights to 16.

Hawaiian Airlines, meanwhile, said it would wait until January -- after the holiday rush -- to implement flight cuts.

Aloha and Hawaiian are operating under a federal antitrust exemption which allows them to work together on seat capacity of interisland routes to reduce expenses.
