While most of the U.S. airline industry has been sailing along for the past two years, Hawaiian Holdings, (NASDAQ:HA) has hit some rough patches. Unit revenue declined in 2013 due to a combination of overcapacity on some routes, and unfavorable currency fluctuations.
However, Hawaiian Holdings has been on the mend for several quarters now. Unit revenue returned to growth last fall, and there are several more unit revenue growth drivers coming on line this summer. These growth drivers should more than offset the tougher year-over-year comparisons that Hawaiian Airlines will face.
