PAGO PAGO to HONOLULU
So you may or may not know that I’m a huge fan of airports in random small Pacific or Caribbean islands. I always love flying around these islands and with the FNF being in Hawaii, which is one of my favorite places in the world. It was the perfect opportunity as Honolulu has many flights to the South Pacific. I wanted to fly into my 2 favorite Hawaiian airports (Kona and Hilo), but Hilo only has flights between the islands and to Los Angeles. And, as badly as I wanted to, I didn’t fly into Kona because I want to fly and post Dallas to Kona when the 777 is released. I looked around for some random islands, but settled on Pago Pago, in American Samoa. American Samoa is a US Territory, so It is the farthest you can get from Washington DC without a passport (Guam is farther on a direct line, but the stop in Honolulu for this flight makes it longer because of how far South American Samoa is). Hawaiian flies this route in real life (when there’s not a pandemic running around) just a couple times a week, and they use their A330-200s on it, they used the 767s but once those were retired they switched to the 330s. Since we don’t have the Hawaiian A330 in game, I used the 767 which I was surprised with how much I enjoyed using it. The flight was super fun because of how random Pago Pago is, and flight time was 5 hours and 9 minutes.

As always please let me know your thoughts and your favorite photo!
Along with Samoan, what is the other official language of American Samoa?
