(Honolulu, HI) -- Hawaii's largest airline is making some changes that could affect thousands of local residents. Hawaiian Airlines is switching credit card companies and banks. The airline will change from Visa to Mastercard and will use Barclaycard U.S. as the issuing bank instead of Bank of America. The airline says card users will see numerous perks with the switch, including getting 35-thousand bonus HawaiianMiles when they spend one-thousand dollars or more on purchases in the first 90 days. About half of the 300-thousand cardholders that will be affected by the change are Hawaii residents.
