jrl767, I apologize in that I should have said I was looking for airports not part of the state of Hawaii - i.e. international. That said, I didn't, so first off, I'm going to assume all of your Hawaiian airports are correct. As for your international airports... all of the ones listed except Tokyo Haneda are correct.

Now based upon how I asked the question, even with the Hawaiian island airports listed, we're still missing a few airports. You're off to a good start though and if you'll allow me to put out yet another hurdle for you to jump over, how about having a go at the other seven airports not listed?
oooooookay, figured that was too easy ...

I can think of five candidates right off the bat
  1. Hong Kong (HKG)
  2. Manila (MNL)
  3. Osaka (OSA)
  4. Pago Pago (PPG)
  5. Taipei (TPE)

    plus another that makes sense, but I'm less certain of
  6. Nagoya (NGO)

    and finally a little upthread research leads me to add
  7. Port Moresby (POM)
