This can't be real, can it?

Apparently Allegiant used an MD80 on Sept 7.

A flightaware glitch. The MD80 doesn't have the legs nor the ETOPS certification for that run.

Yep, just another case of 'don't believe everything flightaware says just because it's labled that way'.  

The MD-80's are not ETOPS certified, and don't have the range to do that flight. It was a 757.

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

Yep, physically impossible. I suppose you could do with those ferry tanks that HA uses for their 717s, but why would Allegiant fly an MD80 to Hawaii?

but why would Allegiant fly an MD80 to Hawaii?

I don't think I've ever seen it discussed but is there ANY chance that G4 might consider basing an MD over there to do a little island-hopping -- one or two flights a day between HNL, LIH, OGG and KOA -- just to see what happens and if enough of their customers would take advantage of the cheap service to travel interisland? Would such an idea make any sense, financially, operationally, or otherwise?

This was the first idea I thought of when I saw this thread but I wasn't even going to mention it. Besides, IF they ferried the plane over there earlier this month, and there's been no announcement of any such service, why send it over now?

Just thinking outloud here...
