One of the messages below mentioned about DC-9s operated by Hawaiian Airines. I just don't understand how the DC-9s get to Hawaii. I don't think DC-9s can fly far enough all the way to Hawaii even from SFO or LAX.

When they were ferried over to hawaii there were no pax or bags, so the aircraft was able to do it no problem, it's less than 3000mi. An interesting bit of trivia. When SAS took delivery of their MD-90s not a single fuel stop was made on the way to Copenhagen from Long Beach. The MD-80s ordered in previous years always had to make one stop en-route
