Air­line makes ef­fort to speak Hawai­ian

The Republican Herald - - LOCAL -

HONOLULU (AP) — Pas­sen­gers fly­ing Hawai­ian Air­lines may soon get a com­pli­men­tary lan­guage les­son as the com­pany am­pli­fies ef­forts to pre­serve tra­di­tional Hawai­ian by in­cor­po­rat­ing it into ev­ery­day busi­ness.

Cabin an­nounce­ments and crew in­struc­tions were given in English and the tra­di­tional Hawai­ian lan­guage on a Las Ve­gas-bound flight on Fri­day, mark­ing the first time the lan­guage was uti­lized on a flight headed to the main­land, Hawaii News Now re­ported.

The idea was tested ear­lier this month on four flights to Hilo.
