CO flies 737-800's throughout most of the CO Mike network with a couple of exceptions when 767-400's are used (HNL-GUM,HNL-NRT). The early morning arrival in Guam allows onward connections to cities in Japan and Honolulu.

Up until the recent past, the service was a boeing 727-200.
This is one of the best value transpacific flight around, and for those
that live in the tropics of Australia, this is the fastest way to America.
It works out both faster and cheaper than flying down to Syd on QF and then backtracking....I have tried to book it several times but due to either the limmited schedule or, the fact that i was on Governement (hence almost always QF) travel, it was ruled out! Too bad cause i hear its good!

I'm a little surprised that CO doesn't serve more cities in Australia from GUM; it would seem to me that GUM would be an ideal connecting point from SYD, MEL, BNE to the smaller cities CO serves in Japan; then again, the overall traffic numbers may not be high enough to justify one or more daily flights, which you'd need to make for an attractive alternative.
If the rumored IAH-GUM non-stop were to be added, that would also significantly strengthen connecting traffic through the GUM hub and possibly make new routes viable for CO.
