I'm skeptical, you can fly HNL-GUM-NGO, I cannot believe there is so much demand to warrant a HNL-NGO. There isn't even a HNL-NRT, which I would think would yield higher loads.

Can you provide a link of the news?

BTW, if it is true, it would more than likely flown with a 764...

Co "retired" their 747s but i imagine they will use either a 739 or a 777.




If Continental had a hub at DFW with nonstop flights I would always fly them, unfortunantely good things take time.

Very unusual move for CO, they have not been active in the Hawaii-Japan market and opening a route from Honolulu to Nagoya is a bold step.....I wonder if the scheduling will alloy for connections to LAX, IAH and EWR?

Didnt America West once fly the HNL-Nagoya route (as a continuation of their PHX/LAS-HNL 747 flights) and wasn't the route later picked up by NW?

By the way, the CO-Micronesia 764 aircraft dont have the 35+200 configuration......the 764s operated on the Hawaiian routes (except the EWR-HNL flight) usually have only 20 seats upfront with a larger coach cabin. Any ideas?

"There isn't even a HNL-NRT"

There used to be, CO flew HNL-NRT untill about 1999 or early 2000.

Back in 1997/'98 when the US reached the open skies agreement with Japan CO was awarded rights for a "SECOND" HNL-NRT flight as well as a HNL-KIX flight, getting landing slots though is another issue with regards to Narita.

it could be a 764 instead of the 76H, there may be some higher yield in this market instead of the others, plus I'm not sure how many 76H's we actually have.

The 1415 departure from HNL will allow connections from EWR, IAH and LAX. In addition it will also allow connections from NWAs SEA, PDX, MSP and DTW flights. This flight also connects to the NWA flight to MNL from NGO.

I would have thought NWA would have been the one to restart service, before CO launched this new service. Maybe there will be a redtail between HNL and NGO in the future, even with this flight.

I am very happy to see this flight into NGO. I have been living in NGO for years and try to get to Hawaii at least two times a year. Now I either have to go through KIX or NRT if I want to fly with NW, but now I can take this CO flight and still add to the ever important FF miles. The current JAL flight is full most of the time, so there is definately a market here, now I am just waiting for NW to restart their flight.

Wishful thinking? With CO and NW joining Skyteam soon, can I hope to see a Skyteam mini-hub at NGO or the new Chubu airport? NGO used to have Delta, KLM, and Air France service. We still have CO, NW, and KE service, with AF returning after the opening of the new airport. I would love to see this happen as I really dislike NRT and KIX is tough to get to. Just my wishful thinking.

COAB767,

5 76H's currently as you mentioned, 062-066 are the fleet numbers indeed. The DNU mentioned that 45 furloughed f/a's would be recalled by CMI. That's the best news of it all.

CO has historically been strong in Nagoya, with twice daily DC-10s from Guam. Since the retirement of the DC-10 fleet I think CO has switched Nagoya to 3 x's daily 737-800 from Guam.

I have a hunch that this flight might also mean the resumption of Widebody service between Guam and Nagoya...

Guam-Nagoya-Honolulu-Guam.

They might be able to make this work with the 767-400s already based in Guam, without taking the aircraft from another route.

I read this thread started and couldn't believe my eyes. CO starting a nonhub route is a real shocker. Maybe this is just the start of CO adding flights from HNL-westward. I remember the "good old days" when CO used 747s from HNL-HNL.

As stated many times over, this is a very bold move for Continental. I suspect that this flight will be codeshared with Northwest, as the latter is a much stronger force in the Hawaii-Japan market, although Continental used to be one, too.

Honolulu-Tokyo was dropped by Continental primarily due to a lack of slots. They were only flying the route thrice weekly at the time that they dropped it, and decided that it would be more profitable to focus Narita flights from Newark, Houston, and Guam.

Does anyone think that Newark-Nagoya flights might be on the horizon? The Honolulu flights are clearly being launched in direct coordination with the opening of the new airport in Nagoya, which will supposedly serve a large chunk of Central Japan. Currently, no airline flies between the East Coast and any Japanese city outside of Tokyo. With Nagoya being in the center of one of the world's most populated and industrialized regions, I'm sure a 777 flight from New York could work with time.

Interesting to see that CO is timing the flight to arrive and depart HNL roughly the same time as JO. JO84 arrives in HNL at 0755 and departs HNL at 1410, while CO is scheduled to arrive at 0800 and depart at 1415.

Maybe we'll eventually see CO reopen the FA and pilot base in HNL if they keep adding flights.
