coming back from Guam or Saipan, that's what they send there.

Air Mike used to fly 727s into HKG back in the day as well...

Same reason we see CO 762/738 here at NGO in addition to NW 752.

The A320s based there were replaced by the 752s.  Smile

Indeed they do, operating to GUM, PUS, CAN, and NGO-SPN.  Wink

I like how this keeps comming up... everyone in the "Mainland USA" forgets about Guam and the CO mini Hub there...so the 737 goes to HKG, MNL, CNS, DPS, to support Guam Tourists and residents and North South connects from Japan..the 737 is CO 6/7 (737-777-737) GUM-NRT-IAH-SAT RT

Air Mike serves more destinations in Japan than any other US carrier.
AA: NRT
UA: NRT, NGO, KIX
NW: NRT, NGO, KIX
CO/CS: NRT, NGO, KIX (seasonal), CTS, SDJ, KIJ, OKJ, HIJ, FUK

CO/CS serves Japan from IAH, EWR, HNL, SPN and GUM.

As a result of this network, CO/CS serves more locations in South Pacific Islands than any US carrier.

I have been told that these routes have done well for feeding back to the main network. NGO-SPN starts in NRT so that those needing to get to NGO can either fly DTW-NGO non-stop but if the flight is full, which it is frequently, then one can fly via NRT and connect to NGO that way. Also those flying on DTW-NGO can connect to NGO-SPN or NGO-GUM (CO). I have met many people on DTW-NGO going on to GUM or SPN.

NW's Asia based 757s

They're based on Guam so they don't come back to the mainland during normal operations.

Not anymore.

Though some of the B738 aircraft, maybe all the CMI birds, probably have internal air stairs for the remote airports without jetways or even external stairs.

When they are rotated back to the US for maintenance checks which cannot be done in Guam or Honolulu, a regular mainline aircraft will be brought out to fill the fleet.

I flew on the Combi B727 and the DC-6 in the early 70's, but by the early 80's NRT-GUM and all the Guam based aircraft were regular mainline aircraft.

In 1974 when the combi B727 had to go back for maintenance, they brought out a regular Continental B727 - only modifying it with rock guards for the gravel runways. They had to fly the DC-6 for the cargo parts of the runs.

I would think they would rotated to HKG where CO has some of their other MX done.

LAX-HNL-MAJ-GUM is one way.

The Pacific isn't as big as it seems some times.

The US to Hawaii leg is the longest.

Air Mike flies a regular roundtrip route twice a week from Guam to Honolulu in the B738

PGUM-PTKK-PTPN-PTSA-PKWA-PKMJ-PHNL

On some flights they might skip one of the islands.

The US Army used to fly King Air (RC-12) aircraft Adak-Midway-Wake-Guam-Okinawa-Korea - 1500 nm was the longest leg.
