Hawaiian Airlines today revised downward their third quarter 2012 revenue expectations, despite gains in passenger counts and traffic.

The airline attributes the decline in revenue guidance to price cuts on competitive routes.

For the month of September, Hawaiian Airlines saw gains in passenger counts and traffic of 10% and 27%, respectively. Passenger counts were up 10.1% to 760,633 compared to the same month a year ago. Traffic, or revenue per passenger mile, was up 26.7% from 1,060,586 from 837,177 in the same month one year ago.


In year-to-date statistics through September 2011, 7,070575 passengers traveled on Hawaiian Airlines, which is an 8.6% increased from 2011 year-to-date numbers. Traffic, also increased 18.5% compared to one year ago.
