Hawaiian Airlines

March 7, 2005

Re: Letter Conveying Conclusions of The Department of Transportation Regarding the Citizenship of Hawaiian Airlines Following Its Emergence from Bankruptcy and Reorganization

You have proposed to interpose new, U.S.‑citizen limited‑liability companies, which will hold voting stock in Hawaiian's parent corporation, between that corporation and the existing offshore investment entities. Under this arrangement the U.S. managers of the existing offshore entities will own the voting stock of each new LLC reflecting a genuine financial interest therein, while the existing offshore entities will own only nonvoting stock in the new LLCs. We can accept this approach if the U.S. managers are in fact independent decision-makers and are not obliged to follow the dictates of the offshore entities that they manage with respect to Hawaiian, whether because of a fiduciary duty or for any other reason. Moreover, as you know, the Department treats LLCs on a tie facto basis according to their structure: if structured like a partnership, an LLC must comply with the statutory requirements applicable to partnerships to be treated as a U.S. citizen and, if structured like a corporation, it must comply with the statutory requirements applicable to corporations. Accordingly, it is essential that the new LLCs be structured like corporations (as already suggested by your references to "stock" being held) rather than partnerships, to avoid a single foreign participant tainting the LLC as a foreign "partner." Each new LLC must meet the statutory requirements regarding corporations.

Intra-Alaska Bush Service Mail Rates

OST-03-14694 - Intra-Alaska Class Service Mail Rates

March 10, 2005

Comments of Venture Travel d/b/a Taquan Air

By being organized as a Limited Liability Company the owners or members are compensated in the form of draws rather than being run through payroll. This compensation is accounted in the form of a debit to equity on the balance sheet rather than an expense on the income statement.

In recent discovery, I became aware that compensation for myself as reported on our F-2 reports is excluded and essentially zero. This amount is not equitable and not reflective of the time and effort I put into running a successful small airline. Because the management expense has been previously reported as zero Venture Travel, LLC d/b/a Taquan Air's DOT filings have indicated expenses lower than actual and, therefore, have a negative effect on the mail rates.

I do not want to discuss my salary in a public forum, however, I would ask that the Department of Transportation consider allowing my actual salary or an equitable salary be included our reports as an expense item. This approach would give the department our actual expenses rather than the lower costs that we have been historically reporting.
