Wow, some nice pacific traffic that we won't need to travel to LAX to see! I liked the 767s more but this will be nice too!
About time JFK had a nonstop link to HNL!! Wonder what terminal they will call home? Maybe One?
"I can't wait until tomorrow, cause I get better looking everyday"
Pardon my math but what is that 9/10 hours flying?
It's 9hr 50min to JFK, 11 hrs return.
KC-135 - Passing gas & taking names!
Thanks guys. That's a long time flying though it is worth it. My wife and I did it 28 years ago for our honeymoon. We left the 34st Heliport on a NY Helicopter Sikorsky S58T to JFK then
transfered there to our flight which stopped in SFO. We didnt change planes just stopped to refuel (I Guess, oh so long ago) then off to Honolulu. When we stopped we were able to leave
the plane and hang in the Terminal. Coming back we did the same at LAX.
The great circle passes almost directly over San Francisco. It's 2586mi JFK-SFO and 2399 SFO-HNL. This isn't all that surprising; CO does decently well with their EWR-HNL flight, there's cruise traffic to help it out, and Hawaiian's got 5 330s on the property with another 11 to go, so they have to send those planes somewhere. That early in the morning, I guess they have their choice of T1 or T4 - does T1 even have the ability to take domestic flights, or do arrivals and baggage claim flow directly into Customs with no opportunity to bypass?
I've been waiting for this ever since Hawaiian announced they were purchasing the A-330's
This is also not the first time the "Hula Girls" have come to JFK. In the late 80's, I remember seeing Lockheed Electras with the titles "Hawaiin Air Cargo" parked at the airport. I believe they were being flown by Zantop airlines at the time.
Now if we could only get Alaska Airlines over to this side of the Hudson!!
