World Airways MD-11s To HNL

Sat Sep 13, 2003 2:02 pm

It has been reported in the 12 Sep 03 issue of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin that World Airways will fly MD-11s between HNL and LAS for a local travel agency that markets tours to LAS. Here's a chance to ride an MD-11!

Currently, only cargo airlines fly MD-11s in and out of HNL: Lufthansa, Korean, and FedEx.

DL does not use their MD-11s for the Hawaii market.

I forgot to add that this is the second time that World will be gracing the gates of HNL on a regular basis. The last time was back in the early to mid-80s, with their red-gold liveried DC-10-30CFs, when they were competing in the fare wars against the majors on the west coast - HNL route.

Does anyone remember that? I had a chance to take advantage of a World HNL/LAX/HNL flight in 83. Pack 'em in charter seating.

The article mentioned an October/November start-up of service.
