NRSA to hawaii?? good luck!
UA employees in HNL have found it easier to fly UA's HNL - NRT flight to get to the states
One particular lady works the 1P Desk and is also a 1P with United, she said that she takes that flight "often" to get back to the states when she's not on a revenue ticket. She also said about 1/3 of the HNL Res center has Premiers working there (cause it's damned near impossible, so they get the miles instead of hearing "all standbys have been cleared!")
I wish you luck my friend!
