>> Radio New Zealand also pointed out that a Boeing 767-300, used on the Honolulu-Pago Pago route, can safely fly 269 passengers a distance of 11,000km, while the distance between the two cities is just 4,176km.

>> "Hawaiian is saying that it is a safety issue,” said Mr Haleck said, "so have we been flying unsafe for all these years?”

Flight range / endurance has nothing to do with the reason behind the policy. Someone needs to give them a physics lesson and explain the concept of a CG.

Indeed. Also, massive passengers (like the guy in the middle who smashed me into the window last week) MUST pay for 2 seats when required due to their girth.

I noticed SWA is doing counts is Front/Mid/Rear "zones" before departure, and moving people around if needed.
