Denver to Kona
Surprise! There was an update and I’m posting Kona. So as if you haven’t already seen enough 757 posts, I have another one here. For literally months I’ve wanted to fly Denver to Kona but I have been waiting for the 757 to be released because before it was just so awful to fly. Back in May and June I did a weekly 757 post but that eventually stopped as the 757 became more and more infuriating to fly. The 757 is my favorite aircraft by far so I was so excited when I used Open beta last week. While I am a little disappointed that US Airways was removed, we got some new cool liveries I can’t wait to try. Denver to Kona is 100% in my list of favorite routes, and the expectations I had of it were blown through the roof. I decided to fly out of Denver, instead of Newark to Kona just because I wanted to make @Pingu mad. totally not because United doesnt fly Newark to Kona My family and I almost flew on this route last year going to Kona when United “shockingly” cancelled our flight from he… I mean Newark. I left Denver just after 1 PM local time and absolutely rocketed into the sky at 6,000 FPM, then I flew west over the Rocky mountains, crossed the West Coast over San Francisco and then flew over the Pacific where I had a golden hour approach into Kona, landing a little after 5 PM in Kona, after 7 hours and 4 minutes of flight time Temperature leaving Denver was 27 degrees and it was 79 degrees when we arrived in Kona. I always love doing flights to warm places in the winter because I sit in school typing this, waiting for the 12 inches of snow we’re getting tomorrow, I think about how much I’d rather be sitting on the beach in Kua Bay, sipping a Dr. Pepper, and watching flights to Kona fly past at 3,000 feet on approach.
Trust me, this flight is amazing, you should fly it.
