I took a long trip to hawaii, from Anchorage to Lihue on kauai island of Hawaii, a few miss happens included , first of All, Im really impressed with Continental Airlines the service and the condition of their Aircraft. This is the most that I ever flown once and even in all in a week I wasn't able to get all the serial numbers on all of the aircraft I flew of. I got most of them, by the way I booked this trip to attend to a wedding for my brother who is having his wedding in Lihue, and i booked off of price line.com and I will not attend to do again.

Date: May 3rd 2008
Flight number: Co 234
Orgin: Anchorage
Destination: NewWark Via Seattle
Delayed Departure: pushed to 5:55 from 4:45 due to a blow out on the way to Anchorage at Seattle
Arrived: 7:29am
Flight Time: 8 hrs 23 mins
Airline : Continental
Aircraft : 737-800 N26210

Well Left my house 5am to drive to Anchorage since its 210 miles from my house and for me able to do some shopping for a few clothes before getting on the plane, well anyways got into town about 9:30 and got my shopping done by 12:30pm and headed to the airport to take care of parking and check in, I got to the airport and the anchorage airport has 2 terminals south and north and i needed to be at the north, so i got checked in and then they informed people the plane will be coming in late due to a tire in seattle on the incoming aircraft, well anyways I went though the TSA and all of the loops and jumps and waited for the plane for a few hrs and eat at the nearby cafe and surfed the web on my Laptop since their was free wireless, well i noticed the gate wasn't full at all, maybe about 80 people or less, So I was glad it wasn't going to be a cramped plane, well Boarded the plane and I sat in my Seat 7A, and i had a empty seat next to me and the isle Seat was a older lady who was very nice,The FA'S Served drinks and peanuts. The Flight was nice and calm all the way into Seattle. When we arrived in Seattle most people got off and I decided to get off the plane and stretch my legs and Re-board with the NewWark passenger's, well anyways my new seat was 22C isle seat, and the plane was very Full and the people sat with closed the blind and they were a couple and seemed rude, I rather be next to the window So i can see the take off and landings and a place to lean my head, I cant seem to sleep well on planes, This seemed like a very long flight and I couldn't sleep and I drank lots of ginger Ale and eat lots of peanuts I seemed cramped people kept bumping into me or the people next to me kept bumping me. Well anyways the flight ended and I got off the plane and checked to see what gate i needed to be for Flight continental 15 for Honolulu which was moved from Gate 121 to C138.

Flight Number: Continental 15
Orgin: NewWark
Destination: Honolulu
Departure: 1:35pm
Arrived : 6:02pm
flight time : 9hr 56 mins
Aircraft; 767-400 ER N66057

Well Anyways Since I got off Flight 234 , I was very tired and Was wanting Fresh Breakfast, I was walking towards my next gate and hoping to run into a good place to have a little Breakfast and I found a good place it was some streak house place, Well when It was time to pay , I noticed my Wallet was gone out of my pocket and fell out somewhere probably on the plane from Anchorage I was lucky enough i had cash to pay for my meal and had time to go back to the gate where i came from and ask if i can get a flight attendant to search the plane, unfortunately the plane i was on already was leaving and headed to Texas and i told the people at the gate what happened and Knowing that i have no longer no Id to board the plane to Honolulu, the service people said I would be able to board the plane If i had a police report filed, they had a police come to the gate and talk to me and gave me a claim report . Well I got down to C138 and their was hardly anymore time to board and I boarded the plane . I really didn't really have time to think bout anything else besides my wallet and all the important stuff in it, so i got on and walked down the long plane and totally walked past my seat 17a I was at row 40 and I realized i walked to far, so i walked back and sat down, but what a nice big plane. A Hawaiian DC-10 was the biggest before this that I ever been on, and the 767 seemed bigger then the Dc-10, I was very impressed and how clean it was and how pretty it was, I could tell it wasnt that old of aircraft, the power on the take off was awasome and how quiet it was and the cross country flight across the state was mostly clear skys very few clouds but I fell asleep most of the flight the landing was awasome and the reverse thrusters couldnt been any quieter.

Nice trip, although it's just "Newark" not NewWark.

I liked the pictures. Good first trip report. I have yet to do one (soon, I hope) and it is always good to see how others do their first one.

Where were you that you got that close to that AS 732 with the engines covered?

Thank you for the pics and the report!!!

AS donated it to the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum in Anchorage. It's definitely worth a visit if you ever do an ANC turn; it's right next to the airport.
