I posted this on the Maui forum but since we are also traveling to Oahu I am posting on the Oahu forum too.
I read on flyertalk that the ALPA has asked the federal mediation board to release the Hawaiian Airline pilots from negotiations and Hawaiian Air pilots have voted 98% to strike although no walkout are imminent. There is also a mandatory 30 day cooling off period which I assume would end sometime in late November.
Would passengers get their money back if there is a strike? It appears the pilots have been at the negotiating table for years. I am really worried about our spring trip. I have never been in this type of travel situation and since money doesn't grow on trees in my yard trying to scramble at the last minute to salvage our trip would just be too costly for my family.
Anyone else making contingency plans?
