Island Air to Cut Flights, Employees Because of go!

I’m not sure why I’m fascinated with the airline situation in Hawaii, but I am — which means that you’ll have to bear with me a bit.  With the entrance of go! into the intra-Hawaii marketplace, it’s been a bit of a bloodbath over there, with fares being slashed and money being lost (and whining being heard).  We’re starting to see the first casualties:  Island Air has announced that it’s cutting 5 routes and 65 jobs because of the competition.  Island Air was able to happily co-exist with Aloha & Hawaiian through codeshares and by staying out of their way.  Hawaii is littered with failed airlines — we’ll see if Island is next.
