Third Quarter 2018 Highlights

Commercial

  • Expanded its cargo services with the launch of its All-Cargo Neighbor Island service between Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), Lihu'e Airport (LIH) and Hilo International Airport (ITO).  The All-Cargo service, which currently consists of two ATR-72 aircraft, is expected to expand in 2019 with the addition of flights between Honolulu (HNL) and Maui's Kahului Airport (OGG) and Hawai'i Island's Kona International Airport (KOA).

Operational

  • Carried more than 3 million guests across its network, a record for the third quarter.

Partnerships

  • Enhanced its comprehensive partnership with Japan Airlines with the implementation of reciprocal frequent flyer benefits for HawaiianMiles and JAL Mileage Bank members effective October 2018.  The enhanced program is the second phase of the comprehensive partnership launched in March 2018 with codeshare flights.

New Routes

  • Announced its second East Coast route with new five-times-a-week non-stop service between Boston's Logan International Airport (BOS) and Honolulu (HNL) beginning April 2019.

Fleet and Financing

  • Took delivery of three Airbus A321neo aircraft between July and August, increasing the size of its A321neo fleet to nine aircraft.
  • Retired two of its Boeing 767 aircraft in the third quarter as part of the planned exit from its 767 fleet.  Retired an additional 767 aircraft subsequent to quarter end, decreasing the size of its 767 fleet to five aircraft.
  • Completed a sale-leaseback transaction for one of its Airbus A330-200 aircraft.
  • Subsequent to quarter end, signed a definitive agreement with General Electric for the acquisition of GEnx engines to power its Boeing 787-9 fleet to be delivered starting in 2021.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Outlook

The table below summarizes the Company's expectations for the fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2018 expressed as an expected percentage change compared to the recast results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017, as applicable.

As a result of discretionary contributions to defined benefit and other postretirement plans made by the Company in the third quarter, and the resulting impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the Company expects its effective tax rate for the full year ending December 31, 2018 to be in the range of 21 percent to 23 percent.

Hawaiian Holdings, Inc.
Economic Fuel Expense (unaudited)

The Company believes that economic fuel expense is a good measure of the effect of fuel prices on its business as it most closely approximates the net cash outflow associated with the purchase of fuel for its operations in a period.  The Company defines economic fuel expense as GAAP fuel expense plus losses/(gains) realized through actual cash (receipts)/payments received from or paid to hedge counterparties for fuel hedge derivative contracts settled during the period.

Non-GAAP Financial Reconciliation (unaudited)

The Company evaluates its financial performance utilizing various GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, including net income, diluted net income per share, CASM, PRASM, RASM, Passenger Revenue per RPM and EBITDAR.  Pursuant to Regulation G, the Company has included the following reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to comparable financial measures reported on a GAAP basis.  The adjustments are described below:

  • Changes in fair value of derivative contracts, net of tax, are based on market prices for open contracts as of the end of the reporting period.  This line item includes the unrealized amounts of fuel derivatives (not designated as hedges) that will settle in future periods and the reversal of prior period unrealized amounts.
  • Unrealized loss (gain) on foreign debt is based on fluctuations in foreign exchange rates related to foreign-denominated debt agreements the Company executed during the three months ended June 30, 2018.
  • Loss (gain) on sale of aircraft is the result of adjustments to the final purchase price of the Company's Boeing 767-300 aircraft included in a forward sale agreement the Company entered into in January 2018.  During the three months ended September 30, 2018, the Company recorded a loss on the sale of two Boeing 767-300 aircraft covered under the forward sale agreement of $1.8 million.
  • The Company believes that excluding the impact of these derivative adjustments, fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, and the sale of aircraft helps investors better analyze the Company's operational performance and compare its results to other airlines in the periods presented.

2018 contract terminations expense

  • During the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company terminated two contracts which resulted in a $35.3 million contract terminations expense.  In February 2018, the Company exercised its right to terminate its purchase agreement with Airbus for six Airbus A330-800neo aircraft and the purchase rights for an additional six Airbus A330-800neo aircraft.  The Company recorded a contract terminations expense to reflect a portion of the termination penalty.  In January 2018, the Company entered into a transaction with its lessor to early terminate and purchase three Boeing 767-300 aircraft leases and concurrently entered into a forward sale agreement for the same three Boeing 767-300 aircraft, including two Pratt & Whitney 4060 engines for each aircraft.  These aircraft were previously accounted for as operating leases.  In order to exit the leases and purchase the aircraft, the Company agreed to pay a total of $67.1 million (net of all deposits) of which a portion was expensed immediately and recognized as a lease termination fee.  The expensed amount represents the total purchase price over fair value of the aircraft purchased as of the date of the transaction.

2017 special items

  • During the three months ended September 30, 2017 the Company terminated the Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. Salaried & IAM Merged Pension Plan (the Merged Plan) and settled a portion of its pilots' other post-retirement medical plan liability (OPEB).  In connection with the reduction of these liabilities the Company recorded one-time other non-operating special items of $35.2 million related to the Merged Plan termination and $15.0 million related to the OPEB settlement.
  • During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company executed a sale leaseback transaction with an independent third party for three Boeing 767-300 aircraft as part of the Company's planned exit from its 767 fleet.  During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded a loss on sale of such aircraft of $4.8 million.
  • During the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company accrued $18.7 million related to (1) a one-time payment to reduce the future 401k employer contribution for certain pilot groups, and (2) a one-time true up of the pilot vacation accrual at the new negotiated contract rates.

Leverage ratio

The Company uses adjusted total debt, including aircraft rent, in addition to long-term adjusted debt and capital leases, to represent long-term financial obligations.  The Company excludes unrealized (gains) losses from fuel derivative contracts, losses on extinguishment of debt, and special items from earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent (EBITDAR) for the reasons described above.  Management believes this metric is helpful to investors in assessing the Company's overall debt.
