HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaiian Holdings Inc., the parent company of Hawaiian Airlines Inc., said its third-quarter earnings slipped on higher fuel costs, but noted passenger demand remains strong.

The company earned $25.6 million, or 50 cents per share, compared with $30.5 million, or 59 cents per share, a year earlier. Adjusted to exclude fuel costs plus the amount it spent on hedging those costs, net income was $30 million, or 59 cents per share, compared with $28.5 million, or 55 cents per share a year ago.

Hawaiian Air reported last night. They have done good. JBLU will be reporting later, and if HA are any indication, report reasonable numbers. Currently, along with the rest of the market, JBLU are trading lower.
