In 2017, three airlines announced they would resume or launch service in Hawaii, while existing Hawaii carriers ramped up planned service, reflecting category growth . Perhaps most notably, Dallas-based Southwest Airlines (LUV) announced in October that it would enter the Hawaii market with ticket sales beginning in 2018, though specific routes and timing have not yet been revealed.

American Airlines is getting right to the heart of what the holidays are all about in a new video holiday greeting it has just distributed to millions of customers and friends of the world's largest carrier.

The new video greeting focuses intently on one particular American Airlines flight attendant, Bogota, Columbia-based Luza Amparo Riveros, as she makes her way through the airport (Dallas Ft. Worth International Airport in this instance) and on to the plane where many passengers are obviously traveling home with gift packages in tow.
