This is my first time attempting to do a mileage run. Is it possible to still do this for 3/18-19? I can't find the deal anymore on google flights. Also, is there another thread for me to checkout what the abbreviations/acronyms mean when I'm reading threads? TIA

Welcome to the forum! Lots to learn here, for sure! I'm still struggling with all of it. Here's a link to the glossary to look up all the terms: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/glossary.php

Yes. Use UA transfer desk and not flight to Palau.

For example, I spent $4 for a trip from PNR EDSA station to Manila Chinese cemetery. Airport to my hotel on Uber was less than $2.5. But be careful with thieves. The admission fees to Port Santiago were than $1.5. So, you should make a short visit instead of a pure run. I got upgrades with a GPU and RPU for all flights other than GUM-HNL.1K status helped! RIC-EWR-NRT-GUM-MNL was on W fare. But the total fare was about $900.
Is this deal dead? I'm trying to find this from Washington, DCA or IAD or BWI all are fine. Flexible on dates as well.

I'm not finding any flights that are all on UA metal, but there are some UA/NH flights. Here are some options from EWR, or here is one from LAX.

Thank you - takes me direct EWR HNL instead of EWR-IAH-HNL.... total mileage goes under 20,000. Still good for $600.

How about this? 21388 miles for $604 (2.8cpm)

Hmm, now that I found that, I may have to look into doing that! haha

Make sure to post what you find...I may be interested in doing something like that (even though I'd have to position myself in/out of EWR). ^

Not dead. I am seeing routings via LAX/SFO-NRT for $599 through 11/21. UA metal to/from NRT & ANA is a great airline! I am (still) not seeing anything via the Island Hopper?

I've tried many times to get the DEN->MNL version of this to work on the island hopper, but the cost has always jumped up.

Whenever I try Island Hopper its $500 more than HNL-GUM straight. There have been multiple reports of people SDC'ing onto it.
