Can you provide a link to GF? I can't see the same routing that you found and definitely not at that price.

you wouldn't by chance have the Google Flight link to it on DL? Just tried putting those dates in and nothing would pop up?

I was trying to price on May 11 departure but I can't get it for the same price. FYI westbound leaves at 0730 so you would need to be in HNL by Thursday night or take a semi redeye from the west coast.

I did my run from RIC

The United fare is available from many cities. My run started from RIC. ORF and DCA fares are in the $600s. The trick is to use multiple destination search on Google flight using GUM as a stopover. I arrived at MNL in the morning and left the next evening. My hotel cost was $26 (hometown hotel). Taxi was cheap, but you needed to bargain. 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.

Alas it seems to be about $601 from LAX via HNL and GUM. Not the end of the world. I might give it a shot, but that HNL-GUM leg is a killer.

P.S. - It's $551 with dates of May 8 and May 10.
