Hawaiian Rated Nation's Top Airline Serving Hawaii

HONOLULU (KHNL) - Hawaiian Airlines is ranked as the nation's top airline serving Hawaii by Travel + Leisure magazine in the 2007 World's Best Awards.

This is the ninth consecutive year Hawaiian has earned this honor.

Hawaiian's president and CEO Mark Dunkerley says the airline's in-flight service has secured a strong following.

"Our employees have earned Hawaiian this award by giving customers the kind of uniquely refreshing in-flight experience one would expect when flying Hawaii's flagship carrier," said Dunkerley.

Earlier this year, Travel + Leisure invited its readers to rate airlines based on cabin comfort, food, in-flight service, customer service and value.  Hawaiian ranked third overall nationally behind Midwest Airlines and JetBlue Airways.
