"It's been a great quarter in a good year so far.  Low fuel prices, strong demand in our geographies and moderate industry capacity growth combined to create a positive environment for our business," said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines president and CEO. "Our employees have done an outstanding job producing these strong results, and they have my admiration and my thanks."

Statistical data, as well as a reconciliation of the adjusted non-GAAP financial measures to the equivalent GAAP financial measures, can be found in the accompanying tables.

As of September 30, 2016, the Company had:

  • Unrestricted cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $694 million.
  • Outstanding debt and capital lease obligations of $565 million.

The Company made $16 million in pension plan contributions in the third quarter, putting year-to-date contributions at $27 million, significantly in excess of the minimum requirements.

In addition, the Company repurchased approximately 98,000 common shares for approximately $4 million in the third quarter.

Third Quarter 2016 Highlights

  • Ranked #1 nationally for on-time performance for the months of June and August 2016 as reported in the U.S. Department of Transportation Air Travel Consumer Report.

Hawaiian Holdings, Inc.

Economic Fuel Expense

(in thousands, except per-gallon amounts) (unaudited)


The Company believes that economic fuel expense is the best measure of the effect of fuel prices on its business as it most closely approximates the net cash outflow associated with the purchase of fuel for its operations in a period. The Company defines economic fuel expense as GAAP fuel expense plus (gains)/losses realized through actual cash (receipts)/payments received from or paid to hedge counterparties for fuel hedge derivative contracts settled during the period.

Non-GAAP Financial Reconciliation

(in thousands, except per share and CASM data) (unaudited)


The Company evaluates its financial performance utilizing various GAAP, non-GAAP, and other financial measures, including net income, diluted net income per share, CASM, PRASM, RASM, Passenger Revenue per RPM and EBITDAR.  Pursuant to Regulation G, the Company has included the following reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to comparable financial measures reported on a GAAP basis.  The adjustments are described below:


Changes in fair value of derivative contracts, net of tax, are based on market prices for open contracts as of the end of the reporting period. This line item includes the unrealized amounts of fuel and interest rate derivatives (not designated as hedges) that will settle in future periods and the reversal of prior period unrealized amounts.  Excluding the impact of these derivative adjustments allows investors to better analyze our operational performance and compare our results to other airlines in the periods presented below.



Loss on extinguishment of debt, net of tax, is excluded to allow investors to better analyze the Company's core operational performance and more readily compare its results to other airlines in the periods presented below.
