Does anyone know how the Hon to Oak run is going for Aloha with those 737-700's. Personally I would ahte to fly a narrowbody for that long of a flight. Are they happy with the 737-700 or are they looking to get into a smaller widebody like the 767-200 or A310.

HON to OAK? I think you mean HNL to OAK. HON is Huron, SD (a town of about 20,000) and I don't think they have direct service to Oakland. Big grin

corey, they do fly 737-700 on the following routes:
i do not know how it is going with that service, i am sure it is a money maker, just do not know what people think of a 737-700 going that far.

HNL-OAK on Aloha is about as long as SAN-EWR on CO. Its only a 6 hour flight. No problem for the 73G. Also, you must remember that the average passenger doesnt even know what type of plane that they are on...they dont care...as long as it gets them to where they are going. They want a cheaper fare. Thats what Aloha is doing.

I know that Aloha runs 737-7s to HNL from OAK. What I was saying is that 'HON' is the wrong airport code for Honolulu.

BWIA are replacing their L1011's from LHR to the British West Indies (about a seven and a half hour flight) with 737-800's, so surely this is in even further...Actually, I know that the longest 737 flight ive heard of is Air Pacific, from Vancouver to Fiji with an ETOPS certified 737-800. Now THAT is a long flight. I have photos if you dont belive me....I didnt at first I must admit....

What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

The service is excellent. Free headsets, features meals created by Pacific Cusine created by Chef Alan Wong, free towel service, and best of all, hot cookies served with cold milk. Flight attendants are very attentive. It comes with an Aloha guarantee--free interisland flight if you are not satisfied with the service. The plane feels fine--can't tell the difference in wideth from a Boeing 757. The route has been very profitable for Aloha.

The FJ 738 that operates into YVR stops in HNL in both directions.
As for the Aloha flights they must be doing o.k as they are putting more services on. Also whats the difference between their 73G and the UA 757's going to the islands they have the same fuselage cross section, nobody has a go at these flights.

Get used to seeing more of these narrow-body, long-range flights.
