Airport Check-In Time Limits. MW has the right to cancel reservations (whether or not confirmed), deny boarding and/or refuse the acceptance of checked baggage of any Passenger who fails to present himself/herself within the following time requirements for check-in of Passengers and/or Baggage:
1. For Passengers who do not need to check baggage, Passenger must complete the purchase of the ticket(s), check-in and obtain a boarding pass at least 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure.
2. For Passengers who need to check baggage, Passenger must complete the purchase of the ticket(s), check-in, obtain a boarding pass, and complete baggage check-in at least 60 minutes prior to scheduled departure.
3. All guests must be at the boarding gates no later than 15 minutes prior to departure. Guests must be boarded or on board the aircraft 10 minutes prior to the departure as reservations will be subject to our no show / cancellation policy.
4. Mokulele recommends that all customers check-in at least 60 minutes prior to scheduled departure time.
D. The time limits provided by MW in this Rule are minimum time requirements. Due to federal security screening measures in place at airports, Passenger and baggage processing time may differ from airport to airport. It is the Passenger’s responsibility to arrive at the airport with enough time to complete the security screening process and to comply with these MW minimum time limits.
E. MW is not liable for any consequential, compensatory, or other damages when it cancels reservations (whether or not confirmed) of any Passenger in accordance with this Rule, but if the reservation was canceled according to paragraph A) of this Rule, See Rule 26.
F. Overbooking. All of MW’s flights are subject to overbooking which could result in MW’s inability to provide previously confirmed reserved space for a given flight or for the class of service reserved. In that event, MW’s obligation to the Passenger is governed by Rule 23.
RULE 6. Tickets
A. When more than one Ticket, either in a paper, electronic, or ticket-less format, must be issued to properly reflect all of the information required for a complete flight itinerary, the individual Tickets will be cross referenced by their Ticket numbers and are considered to be a single Ticket or “Conjunction Ticket.”
B. A Ticket will not be issued, and in any case MW will not be obligated to carry any Passenger until the Passenger has paid the applicable fare or has complied with credit arrangements established by MW.
C. No person will be entitled to transportation except upon presentation of a valid Ticket.
D. Lost Tickets. See Rule 25.F.
E. A Ticket which has not been validated or which has been altered, mutilated, or improperly issued, is not valid.
F. Flight Coupons will be honored only in the order in which they were intended to be used and, in the case of written Tickets, only if all unused Flight Coupons and Passenger Coupons are presented together.
G. Tickets are not transferable unless otherwise stated on the Ticket at the time it was issued. MW is not liable to the owner of a ticket for honoring or refunding such ticket when presented by another person. If a Ticket is in fact used by an unauthorized person with or without the knowledge or consent of the person to whom the Ticket was issued, MW will not be liable for the destruction, damage, or delay of such unauthorized person’s baggage or other personal property, or for the death or injury of such unauthorized person arising from or in connection with such unauthorized use. As used herein, “unauthorized person”, means any person other than the person to whom the ticket is issued and who is entitled to be transported or to a refund in accordance with the rules in this Contract of Carriage.
H. A Ticket will be valid only for flight(s) for which reservation(s) have been made and only between the points named on the ticket or applicable Flight Coupons. A Passenger holding an unused open-date Ticket or portion thereof or Exchange Order for onward travel, or who wishes to change a ticketed reservation to another date, shall not be entitled to any preferential right with respect to the obtaining of reservations.
I. Prohibited Practices
1. Fares apply for travel only between the points for which they are published. Tickets may not be purchased and used at fare(s) from an initial departure point on the Ticket which is before the Passenger’s actual point of origin of travel, or to a more distant point(s) than the Passenger’s actual destination being traveled even when the purchase and use of such Tickets would produce a lower fare. This practice is known as “Hidden Cities Ticketing” or “Point Beyond Ticketing” and is prohibited by MW.
2. The purchase and use of round-trip Tickets for the purpose of one-way travel only, known as “Throwaway Ticketing” is prohibited by MW.
3. The use of Flight Coupons from two or more different Tickets issued at round trip fares for the purpose of circumventing applicable tariff rules (such as advance purchase/minimum stay requirements) commonly referred to as “Back-to-Back Ticketing” is prohibited by MW.
J. MW’s Remedies for Violation(s) of Rules. Where a Ticket is purchased and used in violation of the Contract of Carriage or any fare Rule (including Hidden Cities Ticketing, Point Beyond Ticketing, Throwaway Ticketing, or Back-to-Back Ticketing), MW has the right in its sole discretion to take all actions permitted by law, including but not limited to, the following:
1. Invalidate the Ticket(s);
2. Cancel any remaining portion of the Passenger’s itinerary;
3. Confiscate any unused Flight Coupons;
4. Refuse to board the Passenger and to carry the Passenger’s baggage, unless the difference between the fare paid and the fare for transportation used is collected prior to boarding;
5. Assess the Passenger for the actual value of the Ticket which shall be the difference between the lowest fare applicable to the Passenger’s actual itinerary and the fare actually paid;
6. Delete miles in the Passenger’s frequent flyer account, revoke the Passenger’s Elite status, if any, of the frequent flyer program, terminate the Passenger’s participation in the frequent flyer program, or take any other action permitted by the Frequent Flyer Terms and Conditions in MW’s “Frequent Flyer Member’s Guide;” and
7. Take legal action with respect to the Passenger.

RULE 8. Ticket Validity Period
A. Period of Validity. Except as otherwise provided in this Rule or required by the applicable local law of a foreign jurisdiction, any eligible Ticket issued by MW or its authorized agent on MW ticket stock will be valid for transportation for one year from the date on which transportation commences at the point of origin as designated on the original Ticket or, if no portion of the Ticket is used, one year from the date of issuance of the original Ticket. When a Ticket includes an excursion or special fare having a shorter period of validity than one year, the shorter period of validity will apply only to the excursion or special fare transportation. When a fare limits the carriage to specific periods of the day, week, month, or year, the Ticket is valid for the specified periods only. When fares are combined to create Round/Circle/Open-Jaw Trips, the most restrictive provisions will apply to the entire transportation. Note: Nonrefundable fares limit the period of validity.
B. Extension of Validity Period
1. If the Passenger is prevented from using the Ticket, or a portion thereof during the period of validity specified in this Rule due to a MW flight cancellation or because MW is unable to provide space on the flight, MW will, without additional collection of fare, extend the ticket validity period of such Passenger’s Ticket until the first flight of MW, on which space is available in the class of service for which the fare has been paid.
2. If the Passenger is unable to commence or continue his/her travel due to his/her personal illness or physical incapacity, or the illness, death, or physical incapacity of a member of his/her immediate family, or of an associate with whom he/she is traveling, MW will extend the period of validity beyond the original limit but not to exceed thirty (30) days.
C. Waiver of Minimum Stay Requirements- Special Fare. In the event of the death of a Passenger enroute, the minimum stay and group travel requirements with regard to any special fares will be waived for Passengers who are immediate family members of the deceased Passenger or were otherwise actually accompanying the deceased Passenger, on the following conditions:
1. The ticket must be endorsed “earlier return on account of death of (name of Passenger)”; and
2. A copy of the death certificate duly executed by the competent authorities under the applicable laws of the country in which death has occurred must be presented to MW at the time of re-ticketing. Passengers will be accommodated under this provision only in the class of service originally ticketed. NOTE: If the death certificate is not available at the time the Passenger requests re-ticketing under this provision, or if documentation satisfactory to MW has not been provided, the Passenger(s) requesting re-ticketing will be accommodated only upon payment of the fare applicable to transportation actually used and a request for a refund may later be filed with MW with the documents required. Upon receipt of the request for a refund and all supporting documents, MW will determine whether a refund to the Passenger is appropriate. If so, the maximum refund will be the difference between the total fare paid by the Passenger and the amount such Passenger would have paid if a waiver had been originally furnished under the provisions of this Rule.
D. Ticket Issue Date. The date when payment is made by credit card, or the ticket invoice date established when payment is made by other acceptable form of payment, will constitute the date a Ticket is “issued” in determining the validity period under this Rule.
RULE 9. Returned Check Acceptance
MW does not accept personal checks. MW will collect USD $25.00 for each returned business check. This charge is non-refundable and is not subject to any discount. Reservations paid by a returned check will be cancelled unless a new form of payment plus returned check fee are paid within 24 hours of notice of returned check.
RULE 10. Prepaid Ticket Advance Charges
MW does not honor PTA nor offer Prepaid Ticket Advance charges.
RULE 11. Acceptance of Children, Minors, and Infants
A. Accompanied. Passengers under 12 years of age are deemed “accompanied” and will be accepted for transportation when traveling on the same flight and in the same compartment with an Adult Passenger. Proof of age of the Passengers may be required by MW. Infants, Children and Minors will be considered accompanied when they are traveling with their Legal Guardian or one of their parents irrespective of the age of the parent or Legal Guardian.
1. MW does not accept infants in incubation or infants under 7 days old.
2. Lap Children (infants under the age of two years):
(A) One Lap Child per Adult Passenger is accepted. Additional infants under the age of two years must occupy a seat and be ticketed at the applicable fare. This is due to US Federal Aviation Regulations.
(B) Infants under the age of two years who are not ticketed may not occupy a seat. NOTE: Infants who are carried in an adult’s lap do not require a Ticket for domestic travel; however they must be listed as a passenger in the Reservation.
3. Children who have reached their second birthday are required to purchase a seat and occupy a seat with a separate seat belt. Infants reaching their second birthday after outbound flights will be required to purchase a Ticket and occupy a seat for continuing/return flights only.

Children/Minors five to 12 years of age are deemed “unaccompanied” when traveling alone or not accompanied on the same flight and in the same compartment by a companion Passenger at least 15 years of age or with their Legal Guardian or parent(s). The most restrictive Unaccompanied Minor acceptance policy or embargoes may apply for interline and Code-share partner travel. Children under five years of age must be “accompanied” and will not be accepted as “unaccompanied” under any conditions. Reservations of children aged five (5) through twelve (12) traveling alone must be booked through the Reservations Center; online reservations for these passengers will not be accepted. Call Center fees will not apply to unaccompanied minor reservations booked through the Reservations Center. Unaccompanied Children/Minors are accepted for transportation at MW’s sole discretion, only under the following conditions:
1. The Child/Minor must be brought to the airport of departure by a parent, Legal Guardian, or responsible adult who shall remain with the Child/Minor until the Child/Minor has boarded and the plane has departed from the gate, and who must furnish MW with satisfactory written documentation that the Child/Minor will be met by another parent, Legal Guardian, or responsible adult upon deplaning at the Child/Minor’s destination. The parent, Legal Guardian, or responsible adult delivering the Child/Minor for departure and receiving the Child/Minor upon arrival will be required to complete and sign documentation as provided by MW relating to such unaccompanied Child/Minor.
2. In no event will such an unaccompanied Child/Minor be accepted for travel:
(A) if the flight on which the Child/Minor holds a reservation is expected to terminate short of or bypass the Child/Minor’s destination;
(B) if the flight is departing between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.;
(C) if the itinerary includes a connection to the last available flight of the day unless the connecting flight is the only published service to that destination; or
(D) on the last flight of the day to that destination; or
(E) for travel on another carriers’ flights that connect in countries other than the United States, Canada, or Mexico, with the exception of flights operated by MW’s Code-share carriers.
3. Children/Minors five years of age or over may be:
(A) accepted as unaccompanied for On-Line Transportation that includes connecting flights; and
(B) accepted as unaccompanied for Interline Transportation provided space has been confirmed to the first Stopover, or to a point where the child/minor is to be met by a parent, Legal Guardian, or responsible adult upon deplaning.
C. Unaccompanied Assistance Charge. Unaccompanied Children’s/Minors’ assistance is a service provided by MW as follows:
1. Unaccompanied assistance is mandatory for Passengers five to 12 years old.
2. Unaccompanied assistance is optional for Passengers 13 to 17 years old. NOTE: MW will not provide a minor 13 to 17 years of age with unaccompanied minors’ assistance when the minor is traveling with a child or infant under the age of five.
3. For travel within Hawai’i, a service charge of USD $25.00 for single plane service and USD $50.00 for connecting flights will be assessed per fare component for unaccompanied assistance. The service charge will also apply if a connection is from a MW flight to another carrier (except for flights operated by Mesa Airlines, Inc.). MW reserves the right to refuse unaccompanied assistance and transportation for connection flights to other carriers at its’ sole discretion.
D. In the event a parent, legal guardian, or approved person that is to receive the child does not show up within 45 minutes of arrival of the flight, MW has the right to charge a $30.00 per hour fee for securing the unaccompanied minor. MW will also seek repayment for basic meals during meal times if the minor is not received and is in MW custody.
E. If a parent, legal guardian, or approve person does not receive the child within 4 hours of the scheduled arrival time of the flight, MW has the right to refuse future transportation to the unaccompanied minor.
F. In the event of a cancellation during an interline transfer (not to a MW or codeshare flight), MW will not be responsible for return air transportation of the minor. In the event the minor has roundtrip travel on MW, the return flight will be adjusted and the purchaser will have no legal recourse for refund.

NOTE: If MW determines that a person meeting the criteria contained in Rule 12.D.1.a through Rule 12.D.1.c must travel with an assistant, contrary to the individual’s self-assessment that he/she is capable of traveling independently, MW will not require the assistant pay the applicable fare in effect at the time of the booking.
4. For purposes of determining whether a seat is available for an assistant, the assistant shall be deemed to have checked in at the same time as the Qualified Individual with a Disability.
5. If, because there is not a seat available on a flight for a safety assistant whom MW has determined to be necessary, the Qualified Individual with a Disability holding a confirmed reservation is unable to travel on the flight, MW will compensate the Qualified Individual with a Disability in accordance with the Involuntary Denied Boarding Compensation procedures specified in Rule 23.
E. For Rules regarding wheelchairs, see Rules 21 and 26.

Any difference between the applicable fare and the fare paid will be collected from or refunded to the Passenger, as the case may be. MW will apply to the payment of such fares any funds paid by the Passenger for unused carriage or any funds of the Passenger in possession of MW.

For international flights (either arriving in or departing from an international destination) MW will not permit one of its aircraft to remain on the tarmac with passengers onboard for more than four hours unless the pilot-in-command determines there is a safety related or security-related impediment to deplaning passengers (e.g. weather, air traffic control, a directive from an appropriate government agency), or Air Traffic Control advises the pilot-in-command that returning to the gate or permitting passengers to disembark somewhere elsewhere would significantly disrupt airport operations.
3. In the instance where passengers are required to remain onboard an aircraft on the tarmac in excess of two hours, MW will distribute food (pretzels, granola bars or similar) and potable water no later than two hours after the aircraft has left the gate or touches down if the aircraft remains on the tarmac, unless the pilot-in-command determines that safety or security requirements preclude such service.
4. In the instance where an aircraft is required to hold on the tarmac, MW will ensure there is access to operable lavatory facilities accessible to its passengers or return to the gate.

RULE 29. PASSENGERS REQUIRING ASSISTANCE
It is the policy of Mokulele Airlines to provide equal opportunity for all would-be travelers. Accordingly, Mokulele Airlines will not refuse to provide transportation to a disabled individual, who may be transported in accordance with the Company’s FAA-approved operating procedures, on the basis of his or her disability provided that he or she is able ascend and descend stairs without the use of a lift device. Mokulele Airlines may refuse to provide transportation to any customer whose carriage may impair the safety of the flight in accordance with the provisions of this contract, and may refuse to provide transportation to any customer whose carriage would violate federal regulations (including FAA and TSA regulations) or the Company’s FAA-issued operating manuals. In exercising this authority, however, Mokulele Airlines personnel will not discriminate against any disabled individual solely on the basis of the disability.
For your safety, to travel in our Cessna aircraft, customers must be able to ascend and descend several steps to board the aircraft without the use of a lift device. Mokulele’s aircraft only hold 9 passengers and therefore, are not required to provide enplaning or deplaning lift devices. Please refer to the Air Carrier Access Act, section 382.97 for more details.
Customers who, because of age, mental or physical condition, disability or impairment, require individual attention or consideration to enplane or deplane an aircraft or to manage oneself during the flight in normal operations or emergency conditions, will be afforded a reasonable amount of assistance by Mokulele Airlines employees. This assistance will be in a dignified, safe, professional and courteous manner and at all times. Mokulele Airlines will consult with the customer about any assistance and special plans arranged on the customer’s behalf. Mokulele Airlines will extend this assistance to all qualified individuals with a disability as this legal term is more broadly defined to protect all those who may otherwise suffer from discriminatory practices.
Mokulele Airlines permits the accompanying of service animals in the cabin free of charge.
