Favre is correct... NW started NGO service from HNL many years ago. They bought the route authority from America WEst when that failed for them. The flight was flight 89, LAX-HNL-NGO for many years. Then retimed to just HNL-NGO. This service was discontinued I'm thinking in 1998 when service to FUK was also dropped. This service was always flown with a DC10.
NWA and MAS were planning to use NGO as a Trans-Pacific hub about a year ago but approval for their code-share has only just come through. Odd - seeing that they were granted anti-trust immunity a year ago.
Things however have taken a turn for the worse with Sept 11th and all that - so NGO hub plans may be delayed if not shelved.
