Was wondering how many flights and @ what times UA flights left SFO for Hawaii in summer of 1969 (also incoming from HNL). I imagine they were mostly flying the new Super DC-8s.

I believe Los Angeles had more flights at the time ... My father was a UA pilot begining in 1967 ... My first trip to Hawaii was in September 1971, when I was 8 years old ... DC8 LAX-HNL .. and my first 747 was the flight back from HNL-LAX ... I think UA had three or four LAX nonstops in the early 1970s (and one to Hilo [which I took once and was also a 747) until Kona became the hot spot on the Big Island) and one or two from SFO, but I am not exactly sure. I do remember that we used to fly UA #114 DEN-LAX-HNL (the only 747 in DEN at the time) and #193 HNL-LAX-DEN (the 747 return)... If I remember correctly, the DC8s to HNL were phased out pretty quickly once the 747s came into the fleet.

I don't see where he asked if LA had more flights!  

Bull, there was a thread not to far back regarding this.

Search "RE: United 's 1960's Hawaii" an Flights Your answer may be in here somewhere. I didn't read through it all.

8 daily flights from LAX, glory days! I did a search on LAX-HNL for summer travel dates and AA actually has more frequent service this summer. Of course there's a lot more competition now with HA, DL and CO in the mix too. From SFO tho, UA is still the frequency leader.

In the 70's, UA operated that many 747-122's between LAX and HNL daily.

Later on there were 6 daily DC-10s on the route as well...even with the current 5 daily flights UA is still the largest carrier between LAX-HNL.

As they should be.  My quick scan on Expedia was obviously faulty, Thanks for posting the right numbers.
