A Clear Hawaiian Morning to a Sunset on the Tundra of Alaska

KONA to ANCHORAGE

It’s been a little while since I’ve had a Kona post, so it’s time I have one again. Alaska flies to Kona from Anchorage using their 737-800s, I’ve flown this route the opposite way, but never from Kona. It is an extremely long route for a 737, just under 2,500 Nautical Miles, and is longer than any route in the United States mainland. This was a really fun codeshare route as it was a featured route for @AmericanVirtual back in February 28, which seems like a year ago with everything that’s happened since then. Flight time was 6 hours and 10 minutes

Nice shots tho! I’ve actually never flown this route…

Also, you should DEFINETELY do Amsterdam to Cape Town. I have flown this route before with KLM’s 77W. Cape Town to me is like Kona to you. Just one of my favorite cities ever and I just love it. Not to mention great scenery. When I flew this route, it was very scenic, with a sunrise Amsterdam takeoff and then over the deserts of Africa with all sorts of colors and mountains. I don’t know what route you took but I’m sure they were similar.

Just a request/suggestion I don’t know what to call it, put in the fixes of your route so if anyone wants to fly the route they can use your exact route @NoahM, if it’s not a hassle. But otherwise amazing photos as always!

@ILOVE7879-2.0 Hawaii is always awesome 😍

@Pertonics thanks man! It means a lot 😊

@Glevolution that’s a good idea I could start trying to do! I can try that for newer flight, but I obviously don’t have the flight plan for this flight from almost 2 months ago 😂

@Butter_Boi Alaska has some awesome scenery, if only we had it throughout the whole state, that’s would be cool
