I wish they would just move a few planes out there and start flying inter-island. I could really use a hop between OGG and KOA in July.

CA-HI non-stops have been around since FDR.

John Wayne made a movie about it.



And BOS-HNL (5,095 miles) launches in 6 weeks.

another use for Chase UR

I spend most of my UR pts on car rentals but now we have another option for HI flights if we can't find reasonable FC awards on AS, AA, DL and UA.

Yes, I know WN has been a transfer partner for quite awhile but now that they'll be flying to HI we have another option.

Any info on what gate (presumably) they'll be flying out of or the tail number? Will be at OAK around that time and may try to snap a pic from the Oakland side!

yes that's it! All the way out at Gate 32. Small gaggle of WN employees at the gate and on the tarmac waiting to take pics of the departure! Looks like the FAA people boarded or walked to the tarmac when I arrived
