    Perhaps company with recent downgrade will throw away their old notes. Always have to wonder about potential interest in shorting by many companies that try to drive the price down. Always a good head fake taking out weaker hands through manipulation............

    Does it effect ownership of the company or your shares? Any pop expected in share price with a winning yes vote? Sounds like money is on the table, wonder about outside partial ownership

    Got a call at home tonight asking me to vote my shares currently at a loss under $1.78. Anyone have the spin on what is going on here? It seems like things are in the works and have to wonder what a yes vote does to me in comparison to a no vote. With a name change, have to wonder who may want to acquire on the cheap, if my perception is right. Anyone have insight here that has read the shareholders voting offer?

    Every hour they keep reiterating the Morgan Stanley post on Etrade about HA. Someone really appears to be milking it and attempting to scare investors into driving the price down. Not much said elsewhere.......Hmmm

    3 times they have posted on Etrade that Morgan Stanley downgraded. These posts were about an hour apart. How do these get reposted at this frequency, same news. Who controls.........
    Market is rigged

    These guys come up with reasons to flush out weak hands for their own personal gain. Always remember motives and reasons behind actions................ Keep the Faith, Reap the Rewards

    Ad I read about China today buying U.S, Companies and investing in our technology, I can't help but think if HA was ever to be acquired, would China be a suitor. What better way to have a link to expansion to Asia and the US mainland. The others are mostly too big, but yet they would also gain in pilots, something there is an abundant shortage of in Asia as they grow air travel. It would be interesting to hear other thoughts. I can still see more acquisitions as the airline sector gains profitability and gets their house in order...................

    Another director selling 500,000 shares on June 1st. Tell them all enough is enough.
    This guy should turn right around and purchase many shares back, what is he needing to buy anyway?

    Interesting article how company executives can be biggest threat to your stocks. It is unfortunate but very true as I look around to see who has been selling and who hasn't been buying........

    It would be wonderful if the generously, well paid Board and Officers, reflected back prior to shareholders meeting and stepped up and actually purchased shares themselves. I would like to see the buyback from the company and officers reflect the bargain of their company at the current valuation. If you believe in the company you are publicly representing, you should be able to live off your salary without counting on other compensation that reflects the value of your stock. We saw what they did recently when some got too greedy........

    Up to 16,000 private truckers have gone on strike that serve West Coast Ports. From what I read, many want to become employees of the companies they haul for, not as independent contractors. Not good for the nation as a whole. HOWEVER, lets watch HA load their planes up and fly right over those ports as they help complete the chain of bringing goods to market. Here Here !!!!!

    Should enhance all shareholder value UNLESS, officers want to keep lining their pockets and holding this from fair value of $27 per share. If it represents a good value for the company to purchase, then you would think it is equally a good value for insiders to purchase as well. Getting tired of the insider sellers, you just had a great QTR people, its time to show the love to your regular investors that want to continue to believe in management............
