what is important and appropriate, and it is featured in
a respectful and elegant way. The interior architectural

Hawaiian Ranked #1 for On-Time, Fewest Cancellationsin August
Hawaiian Airlines was the nation’s most reliable carrier at keeping its customers on schedule
during the busy travel month of August, ranking first in both on-time performance and fewest flight
cancellations, as reported by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
The DOT’s Air Travel Consumer Report showed that Hawaiian’s flights arrived on time at a rate
of 92.8 percent in August to earn the #1 ranking among the nation’s 15 largest airlines. Hawaiian’s on-time
percentage was 13.7 percentage points better than the industry average.
Hawaiian was also nearly perfect in earning the airline industry’s best score for fewest canceled
flights in August, recording just two cancellations out of 6,628 total flights.
In the category of fewest consumer complaints, Hawaiian ranked third with a rate of 0.46
complaints for every 100,000 passengers, as the DOT reported only four complaints compared to the more
than 877,000 passengers that the airline carried in August.
Hawaiian provides daily nonstop service to Hawai‘i from 11 gateway cities in North America –
more cities than any other carrier – using Airbus A330-200 and Boeing 767-300 aircraft, making it the
only carrier to offer wide-body, twin-aisle aircraft for all transpacific flights.
Hawai‘i’s largest and longest-serving carrier is also the leading provider of air service between the
islands of Hawai‘i.

Third Quarter 2012 Revised Outlook
Hawaiian has revised its third quarter expectations compared to those provided in its September 4
Investor Update (see table below). The decline in revenue guidance is primarily the result of competitive
pricing on a number of specific routes that have seen high rates of industry capacity growth; the improved
unit cost guidance is attributable to revenue-driven expense savings, decreased load factors, and lower than
expected maintenance expense.

Safe Harbor Statement
This investor update contains forward-looking statements that reflect the Company’s current views with
respect to certain current and future events and financial performance for third quarter 2012 including, but not limited
to, statements regarding passenger revenue per available seat mile, operating revenue per available seat mile, passenger
revenue per revenue passenger mile and cost per available seat mile excluding fuel. These forward-looking statements
are and will be, as the case may be, subject to many risks, uncertainties and factors relating to the Company’s
operations and business environment which may cause the Company’s actual results for the quarter ending September
30, 2012 and the full year ending December 31, 2012 to be materially different from any expected results, expressed or
implied, in these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation, economic
volatility; the price and availability of aircraft fuel; competition in the North America, Neighbor Island and
International markets; reduced demand for transportation in the markets in which the Company operates; the
Company’s dependence on tourist travel; and the Company’s ability to implement its growth strategy and related cost
reduction goals.
The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect
events or circumstances that may arise after the date hereof even if experience or future changes make it clear that any
projected results expressed or implied herein will not be realized.
Additional information on risk factors that could potentially affect the Company’s operations and financial
results may be found in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, and
subsequent filings with the Securities Exchange Commission.

Monster Pumpkin Carving Event on Oct. 21
Outrigger Hotels and Resorts hosts master pumpkin sculptor,
Ed Moody, who will tackle and carve a 1,000 pound pumpkin
Ed Moody has met his match – and it’s a 1,000 pound pumpkin. On Sunday, October 21, 2012, the master pumpkin
sculptor will take on his arch nemesis, a jack-o-giant, for all to see at Waikiki Beach Walk®. This classic man vs. pumpkin
battle takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Waikiki Beach Walk fountain plaza where families and visitors are invited to
get into the early spirit of Halloween and enjoy
family activities, contests and more.
“This pumpkin-palooza will be a great opportunity
for kamaaina and guests to spend the morning in
Waikiki, getting an early start celebrating Halloween
with costumes, carving and contests,” said Conchita
Malaqui, general manager of Waikiki Beach Walk.
“We’re excited to be the first stop for master pumpkin
sculptor Ed Moody, as he tackles other gargantuan
gourds later in the week as part of the third annual
Pumpkin Carving Festival.”

Michigan-resident Ed Moody brings more than 25 years of pumpkin carving experience with him for this year’s pumpkin
production. Pumpkin carving initially began as a fun Halloween activity for Moody and his sons that evolved into a
passion for sculpting life-sized pumpkins weighing in at more than 1,000 pounds and attracting tens of thousands of
viewers each year.
Waikiki Beach Walk is also hosting local artist Wayne Takazono, who will etch the faces of company founders Roy and
Estelle Kelley into a pumpkin in honor of this year’s 65th anniversary of Outrigger Hotels and Resorts. Takazono is an
Oahu native with an impressive skill-set, working in a variety of art mediums including charcoals, pastels, watercolors,
acrylics, oils as well as extensive experience with wax jewelry-making and sculpting.
The Waikiki Beach Walk pumpkin extravaganza will also feature fun and festive activities for keiki and the whole
ohana to enjoy, including a keiki Halloween costume contest, coloring contest, temporary tattoos, prize wheel and
giveaways. Lil’ ghouls and goblins are invited to dress up in their favorite Halloween costume for a chance to win prizes
from Waikiki Beach Walk merchants and Outrigger Hotels and Resorts. Costumes will be judged at 12 noon on the
categories of most creative, cutest, scariest and best overall.
Families can park with ease that day with $6.00 valet parking (up to four hours) at the Embassy Suites- Waikiki Beach
Walk (201 Beachwalk) or the Wyndham Vacation Ownership-Waikiki Beach Walk (227 Lewers Street), with any sameday purchase from any Waikiki Beach Walk merchant.
Outrigger Hotels and Resorts is a sponsor of this year’s Pumpkin Carving Festival benefiting two local charities, Keiki
o Ka Aina Family Learning Centers and USO Hawaii. The Waikiki Beach Walk event is a prelude to activities taking
place later in the week, including an Executive Pumpkin Carve down and Corporate Team Competition in downtown
Honolulu on October 24 and Family Day at Windward Mall on October 27. For more information on the Pumpkin
Carving Festival, log on to
