HA Flying 767/A330 HNL-OGG? (2015-03-13)

Sat Mar 14, 2015 6:57 am

I happened to see a few tweets posted tonight by a Hawaii state legislator from Maui (Gilbert Keith-Agaran) that indicate he flew on a widebody to get home from HNL.

Tweet 1
Tweet 2

As of this post, HA's flight status page shows two HNL-OGG flights cancelled late this afternoon (HA326 and HA236), and also shows a flight HA1236. (IIRC, 12xx flight numbers have been used in the past to indicate when a widebody aircraft is operating a flight, such as in the aftermath of AQ's bankruptcy in 2008.)

Did something major happen with HA earlier today?

Major? No. A few 717s down for mx yes. It's spring break, so a spare 767 was brought into do the job. Problem solved

Back in the 80s and 90s DL and AA flew L10s and DC10s HNL-OGG but they were once per day. Back then OGG had fewer nonstops to the mainland.

AA had two departures a day HNL-OGG, well at least 93-95 when we lived there. It was $88.00 r/t all in, flew both the DC-10-10 & 30. UA also operated a daily DC-10 r/t, during the same time frame. We took DL once in a while, but mostly AA.

The flight number often came from ORD or another further destination than just the west coast, using the HNL stop on the return allowed for full fuel & pax. IIRC the DL flight was a tag off an LAX flight, with connections to/from ATL & DFW.

I just flew HNL-OGG yesterday and will be flying back to HNL tomorrow. When we left the interisland terminal there were 3 x 717s in for MX and it looked as though they would be on the ground all day. One had the thrust reversers open and had quiet a few MX techs crawling on her. Our flight into OGG was pleasant though. Left the gate right on time without a problem. Didn't see any HA wide bodies here when we hit the ground around 1100.

I flew HA 767 HNL-OGG-HNL back in the summer of 2008. The flights on the 767 were cheaper than the 717 around the same time of the day. It was the shortest wide body flight I've ever been on, and the plane was packed (even though they have a flight every hour or so)

When AQ ceased operations March 31st 2008, it sure left a void in the Inter Island market, IMHO HA did an amazing job of stepping to the plate & doing as much as they could to mitigate the impact AQ's absence in the market.

I am unsure how long HA was running the 767s between Islands, but I'd expect that HNL-OGG-HNL saw the most widebody operations being such a busy corridor.

I've enjoyed the DC-10. L-1011 & 757 on a HNL-OGG or OGG-HNL flight as well as a 777-200 OGG-KOA, I love the short hops as well on the big jets, it's a fun lift off with such little fuel & often times those Inter Island flights were full.

The only down side, is the time it takes to board & deplane 200+ passengers on a big plane at a small airport like OGG used to be back in those days.

Keep in mind that HA does 717 maintenance in house as much as it can, so it's likely that the planes you saw by the hangar were in scheduled checks and not "broken". There are a few 717's in scheduled maintenance at the moment

Oh absolutely. Just noting they had a few birds in the hangar on Friday morning and didn't look like they were going anywhere fast. I wouldn't mind a 763 on the way out of here back to HNL this afternoon.
