This year they will have or have had flights on the following types of planes all to mainland as far as DFW: 772, 77W, 333, 789... it's amazing that that can even happen... blows my mind that these are regularly scheduled everyday.
Winds fairly predictable, weather more stable, and no snow, ice slush or sand to contaminate the runway goes a long way at OGG. These heavies only fly Eastbound and DO have weight limits.
