I went to Haneda International Airport today to pick up my friend from the states. While I was waiting for him at the arrival gates, I saw the blue aloha shirts used by Hawaiian Airlines crew and saw two pilots waiting with them. As it was my first time seeing Hawaiian pilots, I took the opportunity to talk to them and ask a few questions. They gave me wonderful advice to not give up and told me good things about ATP when I mentioned it that it was my number one choice so far. Getting to know them more, I noticed the female captain was Japanese, and I was really happy about it. Just when I was about to ask her what her name was, the rest of the crew arrived and they seemed to be in a hurry so I could only say thank you. If there are any Hawaiian pilots in the forums who know a very nice Japanese lady thats a A330 captain, I would sincerely appreciate it if you could teach me her name! Thank you.
@adam is our resident Hawaiian airlines pilot! If you have any further questions you can always ask away here. Glad to hear you had a cool experience with them. That’s one thing I love about this industry, pilots love to mentor others.
I’m glad you had a pleasant experience meeting our crew but we actually have many Japanese female pilots at Hawaiian. In fact percentage wise we have more female pilots than any US airline.
Thank you so much! They really motivated me even more!
Wow, thank you! Thats an amazing thing to hear!
