Wow HNL-HKG. Do any other airlines currently operate that route from HNL? There is ANA and JAL, but none to HKG I think. Personally I think that CX should start service to HNL from HKG. I hope that route does good for UA. Does LAX-HKG have more pax than SFO-HKG, I would think that was a popular route. I would also think that it would be operated by a 772. I can't recall seeing a UA 744 in HNL before, but maybe it occurs sometimes.
HKG-HNl...thought it was non-stop.
That means UA is just the same as CI, Jl and other carriers.
Remember SQ operated the route non-stop to HNL...can say it was a failure.Looks like UA did a better choice, having a stop in Tokyo.
I think if they are unable to fly to HNL and pick up pax from NRT then why not fly non-stop then?They should have gained traffic rights.
And if they started the route that's non-stop to HNL, it'd not be a profit-making route, that's for sure.
I hope UA made the right decision during the hard-times for now.
