Advertiser Staff and News Services

Aloha Airlines' new rates have risen $10.50 per seat through May but will then decline on June 1, airline officials said yesterday.

The new $77.50, $85.50 and $95.50 rates went into effect Saturday. They'll be in effect until federal officials lift security fees that have been levied.

Aloha's new fares will then be $72, $80 and $90, Aloha spokesman Stu Glauberman said.

Hawaiian Airlines raised its rates to follow Aloha. But a spokesman for Hawaiian Airlines would not comment on its rate structure after June 1.

Officials with the trustee's office said they have not scheduled interviews but hope to select a trustee within two weeks.
