If I remember right, UA started 757 service to KOA in 1998. They also fly a 747-400. I belive JAL was the first of the majors to return to KOA after their runway extension was complete.

UA no longer flies 744's from the mainland to Hawaii.772.763 and 752. I flew N595UA and N597UA 757-222ER LAX-LIH-LAX in March.I think that is the longest 752 ETOPS flight at 6 hours over the water. Is it?

I stand corrected. I think the last time I saw the 400 was in 1999 when I was training at KOA. Long waits for wake turbulence after one of those guys takes off.

KonaB77,

What routes does UAL use the 757 to Hawaii? I figure it can't be LAX-HNL or SFO-HNL because they use 767's for those routes.

Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

They fly them to Lihue, Honolulu, Kahului, and Kona. It's all a mix.

Why should we be expecting more UA 744's to Hawaii? If this is true do you know what routes they will be used on? ORD-HNL, perhaps?

The UA 2/96 timetable shows an SFO-OGG 757; the AA 4/97 shows an LAX-OGG 757.

There is still one 757 flight between SFO-HNL, the last flight of the day both ways. This flight always used to be operated by a 747-200, which was wonderful for SA's, as you would ALWAYS be assured of getting on!!
