American Samoa Kicks Out Hawaiian Airlines

There’s a bit of a brouhaha going on in Pago Pago, American Samoa (as I read that sentence, it sounds like the beginning of a Doctor Seuss book).  Even so…The governor of American Samoa is pissed at Hawaiian Airlines for their rather high fares to the island (Hawaiian is the only connection to Hawaii).  So pissed that he recently passed an executive order banning the airline from flying to Pago Pago.  The FAA doesn’t find this funny (despite the Seussian first sentence) and has told the governor that he has no right to ban Hawaiian from flying there.  It’s gonna get ugly in Pago Pago.
