Hey,

If you have 1984 and 1985 China Airlines timetable or you remember your flight trip. Can you help me to find identify my first flight trip?

In 1984 or 1985, Do you know that China Airlines flew from Hong Kong to Los Angeles via Taipei and Honolulu? Is it true?
and
What type of aircraft was it? B747-200 or B747-100 or B747-SP

Thanks for your help

I know that even back in 1984/1985, China Airlines was already flying LAX-TPE nonstop with 747SP, so I'm not sure if they flew LAX-HNL, since they wouldn't be able to get LAX-HNL pax anyways.

If CI flew TPE-HNL-LAX, it should be 747-100.

If it's a non-stop, it should be 747SP.

I don't know about 1985, but based on their schedule in 1986 you couldn't get from HKG to TPE to LAX via HNL - you could either go from HKG to LAX via TPE or from HKG to HNL via TPE and HND. The TPE-HND-HNL flight would have been on a 747-200B (or possibly a 747-100 in 1984), while the TPE-LAX segment would have definitely been on a 747SP - all their flights to the North American mainland in the 80s were on SPs. Your guess is as good as mine what aircraft was on the HKG-TPE segment; back then, just as it is today, there were a multitude of flights between the two cities with multiple aircraft types from 767s to A300s to 747s. If your ultimate destination was HNL, which would have left TPE at 2:15, you probably would have taken the 11:20 747SP flight from HKG to TPE arriving at 12:35. If, on the other hand, you went to LAX, you were probably on either the 1:45 or 2:00 flight out of HKG on an A300 since the non-stop LA flight left at 4:30 (arriving 3 hours before it left...). Actually, I remember flying on a CI 747SP back then - I remember garish seats and lukewarm drinks in waxy paper cups served by some very nice flight attendants. I think things have changed quite a bit since then. Hope that helps.

hey guys..thanks for your help!

I remembered that China Airlines aircraft was Boeing 747-100 in Hong Kong in daytime (i guess i might be in the morning) as it was so big. I believed we had to stay inside the aircraft in Taipei. My parents told me that our flight was going to Honolulu and then Los Angeles. I arrived in Los Angeles in daytime too.

When I flew back to Honolulu, my plane took off at night time and then return to Hong Kong in night time again!

Sinagpore Airlines used to fly from HKG-HNL-LAX I think with DC-10's. Are you sure it was China Airlines?

I have lived in HNL since the 1970s. All the flights that came into HNL via Haneda were 747-100. Initially, the flights were Taipei-Haneda-Honolulu-Los Angeles, using a 747-100. Later on CI had Taipei-Los Angeles nonstop using a 747SP. Ultimately, they dropped the HNL-LAX route, as it wasn't profitable. SQ also had a flight from Taipei-HNL-LAX using a 747-300, as well as HKG-HNL-SFO, again a 747-300. SQ never flew DC-10s to HNL. When the 747-400s came out, SQ dropped HNL.

AFAIK, the TPE-HND-HNL-LAX route was served by the B747-200, not -100. The TPE-LAX route was served by the B747SP.

Airzim:

Back in 1979, SQ used the DC-10 initially on the SIN-HKG-HNL-SFO run.
