There was a bittersweet reunion Monday night for former Aloha Airlines employees.
When go started flying inter-island in 2006, it sparked an airfare war, and go! is blamed by many for putting Aloha Airlines out of business.
Former Aloha air workers KHON2 talked to on Monday say they have nothing but support for go! employees.
“But as far as the employees my heart really breaks for them because they’re going through the same things we went through. where they gonna find their money for their next meal, where they’re gonna educate their children, to pay their mortgage, schools. It’s heartbreaking,” former Aloha Airlines employee Patti Smart said.
March 31 also marks the sixth anniversary of when Aloha Airlines ended its operations.
