On the 5th of December, Hawaiian holdings raised its outlook on the Hawaiian Airlines fourth quarter performance. The company announced anticipating its unit revenue to rise 3-6% YoY. This forecast led to shares hitting a record high of $53.90, showing a 5% increase.

The company also disclosed its plans to buy one Airbus A330-200 aircraft and lease two Airbus A321neos. Such a fleet expansion would allow the carrier to increase the number of routes between mainland USA and Hawaii. The purchase would also help the carrier to phase out its Boeing 767s by the end of 2018.

Earlier in 2016, Hawaiian Airlines was granted a legal right to weigh its passengers to analyze ways of saving fuel after facing the fact that the average weight of passengers has increased.
