Aloha Airlines May 1, 1977

As you can see this is Aloha timetable #124. Not sure why they numbered their timetables besides having an effective date.

Aloha flew between July 26, 1946, and ceased on March 31, 2008. Sad to see an old airline shut down.

This is a small one fold timetable with fares and a route map on the back and their flight schedules on the inside.

Looks like their most expensive fare as USD38.00 (USD144.00 today) between Hilo and Lihue. If you were a youth group of five or more under 20 and accompanied by at least one adult paying an adult fare, each youth could pay USD8.55 (USD32.00 today) between Molokai and Maui. The biggest route in Hawaii and Honolulu and Maui (OGG) and cost USD23.00 (USD87.00 today). While the timetable was effective May 1, the fares were effective January 1977.

That's at least five months keeping the same fares, now a days airlines change fares every five minutes.

I'd flown Aloha a few time within Hawaii. It was one vacation with a friend flying into Honolulu and connecting on Aloha to Kona. After a few days we flew Aloha from Kona via HNL to Lihue and then Aloha to Honolulu to fly home.
