I haven't done it for a few years and was thinking maybe it's about time to try it again. I'm retired staff so it cost me very little.
I have no idea what the normal fares would be, but likely expensive since there is limited competition on the route. OK
, just checked HNL
-GUM r/t for Dec 10, returning Dec 13, and found a price of nearly $2000 for the direct flight. HNL
was cheaper, particularly for a 1-stop.
The island-hopper only operates 2 or 3 days a week and I don't usually see it shown when I select "HNL
-GUM" either on the employee website or the public one, so you might have to spend some time looking for it. Easiest way might be to start with HNL
to one of the islands so you can find out what days it runs. I just spent a few minutes checking HNL
-GUM and could not find it. Might be more reasonable to book HNL
(or somewhere beyond GUM) and try to get the hopper as one of the segments.
And...be sure to get a window seat. Lots of uninteresting water, punctuated by moments of stunning beauty!
