Maybe Cathay Pacific...
During the early days of the Jet Era, with their 707's...
they probably used this as a techinical stop on the way to the west coast of the United States.

not sure though...

AA61hvy -

Just as an fyi, there are many Chinese people that reside in Hawai'i. Being from Honolulu, I can say this for a fact.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

SQ used to fly HKG - HNL direct service and continued to SFO in the 1980's, but now HNL is only history.

UA used to fly HKG - NRT - HNL with a same plane service but they re-scheldued as HKG - NRT - LAX nowadays, which means HNL has been dropped.

SQ used to operate flight SQ15/16 I think on a SIN/HKG/HNL/SFO
routing. The return flight went SFO/HNL/HKG/SIN This was flown
with the B747-300s. This flight along with one from LAX that flew
LAX/HNL/TPE/SIN would land within 30minutes of each other in HNL
around2-3am. When they got the B744s, they eliminated the stops
in HNL.

SQ actually flew SIN-HKG-HNL-SFO and SIN-TPE-HNL-LAX with the Boeing 747-200 and DC-10 aircraft. This routing then progressed on to the Boeing 747-300, but due to winds en route to Singapore, the B743s had to make a technical stop at HNL, while having the range to fly HKG-SFO direct.

When the Boeing 747-400 aircraft came along, HNL was eliminated. I really would like to see SIA putting a 772ER from SIN-HKG/TPE-HNL sometime soon.

United still flies HNL-NRT and back with a 747-400.

GARUDAROD I was just in time! but yours was more detailed.

Yes UA1837 UA still flies HNL - NRT just that UA can't claim that it's a scheldued flight from Hong Kong comparing to before. But I guess that does not make much difference as I doubt much Hong Kong people would go to HNL for vacations anyways so that's why no HKG - HNL route lasted long.

Nobody goes direct, but HKG to MNL to HNL .. or HKG to NRT to HNL

Cathay have never operated to HNL. Their first ever service to N. America was HKG-YVR (started in 1983 I think), flown non-stop both ways with several higher gross weight 742's in their fleet.

it sounds like hnl was mainly used for a re-fueling stop as opposed to a scheduled destination
