I recently learned of a route United flies known as their Island Hopper. I thought it would be interesting if I shared it.
What is it?
It is a route United flies connecting several islands in the Pacific flown by a Boeing 737-800. It starts in Honolulu, and the first stop (MAJ) is in Majuro, in the Marshall Islands. At all of the stops, passengers are allowed to disembark, and stretch their legs. The next stop (KWA) is the air force base in Kwajalein, also in the Marshall Islands. Then the aircraft continues to (KSA) Konsrae, in Micronesia, (PNI) Pohnpei, also in Micronesia, and (TKK) Chuuk. Finally, the aircraft makes the last leg to (GUM) Guam.
Overall, the trip takes 17 hours, including the time it takes for passengers to briefly disembark and go through customs. I thought it was very similar to the Pacific routes Pan Am flew using their clippers, although this is obviously a very miniaturized version of that.
