Howzit Howard: international arrivals

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Monday is usually the slowest day of the week for international arrivals but more than 4,000 people got off from flights from other countries Monday. Japanese arrivals are up 17 percent compared to the first 19 days of July last year. Arrivals from the mainland are up more than seven percent, with double-digits to Maui and the Big Island. Kauai is still flat though.

United Airlines has posted a $273 million second quarter profit, its best result in almost three years. Revenue was up 28 percent from the same time last year. United is the third largest U.S. airline but flies more seats to Hawaii than any other carrier. CEO Glenn Tilton said "The United team continue to execute across our critical operating, service and financial metrics," which is complete gibberish, but the profit is nice.

Helping Hands Hawaii has a new president, it's Jan Harada. She's been working as executive director of Palama Settlement.

Prudential Locations is setting up a preview tour for the Allure Waikiki Wednesday. The Allure is a 35 story condo tower that went up where The Wave used to be.
