HONOLULU -- Hawaiian Airlines stopped paying base commissions June
24 for tickets purchased in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and the
U.S. Virgin Islands.
"Hawaiian has been among the last airlines to reduce travel
agency commissions over the past four years, but with the rest of
our industry clearly headed in this direction, we feel it's
necessary to take this action to remain cost-competitive," said
John W. Adams, Hawaiian's chairman, president and chief executive
