I was just wondering why United does not have a direct flight from Dulles to Honolulu?
|Quoting SkyHigh777 (Reply 6):|
I think United's 777's would definately make it to Hawaii. ANA's 777 makes it to Tokyo non-stop from IAD, so I am sure the Hawaii route would be no problem.
|Quoting Cory6188 (Reply 9):|
If CO's 764 can make it from EWR-HNL, then I'm sure that a UA 777 could handle IAD-HNL
|Quoting Flightopsguy (Reply 8):|
Also the yield. UA could operate a 777 for the same flight period to Asia or Europe with an improved ROI
|Quoting PanAm747 (Reply 12):|
how many UA/UE cities that have flights only to IAD and not ORD?
|Quoting UN_B732 (Reply 10):|
This could happen with their IAD expansion
|Quoting Gigneil (Reply 4):|
IAD-HNL is within range of the 777-200A, but I'm not sure demand exists.
|Quoting SESGDL (Reply 18):|
There's definitely demand, though a 767-300ER would most likely be the aircraft choice. US East Coast to Hawaii hasn't been to popular over the years. The only routes I know of are ATL-HNL/OGG and EWR-HNL.

Amsterdam, Binghamton, Brussels, Charlottesville, Buenos Aires, New York-Kennedy, Chicago-Midway, State College, Zurich
|Quoting DesertJets (Reply 23):|
So the markets that don't have service to ORD, but to IAD, are all either small, co-terminals to cities w/ service to ORD, or within a 2 hr drive to a United destination w/ service to ORD. Or are international markets that in all honesty probably have little to no O&D to HNL.
|Quoting 727EMflyer (Reply 22):|
The tourism authority in Hawaii is pushing for expansion into the east coast market.
|Quoting United_Fan (Reply 26):|
Other than HA's SYD runs,a 763ER is kinda overkill IMO . So,longer runs could be a possibility.
|Quoting Dutchjet (Reply 28):|
The US East Coast-Hawaii market is not that huge, and does not warrant lots of nonstop flights
|Quoting United_fan (Reply 29):|
the 'ER' part of 767-300ER is overkill for West Coast to Hawaii. That's probably why HA had DC-10-10's .
