Hong Kong via Honolulu and Guam is a long, long day via Hawaii/domestic-configured United 777 and 737's. No in-seat power, no in-seat entertainment, only so-so "personal device entertainment" and pricey satellite internet.
Arrival at HNL is pleasant enough. As old as the airport and the overseas terminal is, a landing on the reef runway to Hawaii, down to the shining sun and blue skies, is always a pleasant experience. The United club is similar in quality to the one in Los Angeles, uninspired, but being in Hawaii makes it seem that much nicer. Sadly the lack of real food meant braving the airport restaurants down the hall...
Sushi in the airport wasn't bad, but for an island known for fresh fish, I was hoping for better. And the house special ramen (crab slivers atop ramen, meh), from the home of Sun Noodle, it was seriously disappointing-- and expensive.
Five hours to HNL, then nearly eight more hours and one international date line to GUM. For a small island (albeit one of the larger in the South Pacific), it's heavily populated with a fairly large airport. Sadly we had to rush through it, made a quick stop to see how the club was (small-ish but actually looked pretty decent), then off to the gate to one of the regional 737-800's that United uses to run between Saigon, Manila, Hong Kong, and some of the islands in the area.
At least we got fed on that flight, and cramped and deprived of amenities as it was, another five hours or so on a plane meant a nap for the late night arrival in Hong Kong. Onto the airport shuttle and then to another day!
