Beginning Monday, United Airlines will be end flights between Orange County's John Wayne Airport and Honolulu, Hawaii, due to a decrease in demand. Some pre-booked flights in June between the two destinations will be the exception.
United Airlines spokesman Mike Trevino said that this particular route began in March 2010, just before the onset of a merger in October of that year between United Airlines and Continental Airlines. The merger operated as United Continental Corp. until last month, when the Federal Aviation Administration awarded United Airlines with a single operating certificate.
According to JWA spokeswoman Jenny Wedge, all eight airlines at JWA have been approached to pick up the route, but none have pursued it for financial reasons.
