Trying to decide on possible merits of choosing Alaska v. Hawaiian Air for flight from Portland to Honolulu...

In researching airfares for a summer trip, the price of a ticket on Alaska is easily $200 pp cheaper than Hawaiian right now, for a RT between Portland and Honolulu, which adds up quickly for four people.
I've flown Hawaiian before and AK domestically and neither airline really seems to be an issue as far as reliability/service, etc. As silly as it sounds, I'm curious if any seasoned flyers out there have insights on any reason to avoid AK for the simple reason that they are flying a 737-800 v. Hawaiian's 767-300 over open ocean for 6 hours.
