If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense
and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should

         [X]      (a)      The reasons described in reasonable detail in
                           Part III of this form could not be eliminated without
                           unreasonable effort or expense;

         [X]      (b)      The subject annual report, semi-annual report,
                           transaction report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, 11-K or

                           prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report
                           or transition report on Form 10-Q, or portion
                           thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth

                           by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.


State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q,
N-SAR, or the transition report portion thereof, could not be filed within the
prescribed time period. (Attach Extra Sheets if Needed)

Registrant filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December
31, 2002 on April 15, 2003 ( the "10-K") pursuant to an Application on Form
12b-25 (the "Original 12b-25") and incorporated by reference Items 10, 11, 12
and 13 of Part III of Form 10-K from a definitive proxy statement that the
Registrant intended to file on or prior to April 30, 2003. However, as
previously disclosed in the Registrant's Current Report on Form 8-K filed on
March 21, 2003 and the Original 12b-25, Hawaiian Airlines, Inc., the sole
operating subsidiary of the Registrant, filed a voluntary petition for
reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the
"Chapter 11 Filing") in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Hawaii (the "Bankruptcy Court") (Case No. 03-00827). Due to the timing of the
Chapter 11 Filing and the additional and critical demands that the Chapter 11
Filing continue to place on the time and attention of senior management of both
the Registrant and Hawaiian Airlines, Inc., the Registrant (i) has postponed its
annual meeting of stockholders and (ii) has been unable to complete all work
necessary to timely file the required amendment to the 10-K without unreasonable
effort or expense.

         the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment
         Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months (or for such
         shorter) period that the registrant was required to file such report(s)
         been filed? If answer is no, identify report(s).

                                        [X]     Yes     [_]     No

(3)      Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations
         from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be
         reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject
         report or portion thereof?

                                        [_]     Yes     [X]     No

         If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both
         narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons
         why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.
