United’s Awesome Island Hopper – 6 Amazing Stops from Hawaii to Guam! HNL-MAJ-KWA-KSA-PNI-TKK-GUM

We’ve written about this B737-800 island hopper flight from United before, but now there are multiple reviews from those who stayed on board for every leg! United 154 departs from Honolulu over the Pacific 3x a week towards Guam. The flight allows residents of atolls and outposts a lifeline to the mainline for supplies, communication, cargo, and potential tourism dollars. UA 154 makes stops in Majuro (MAJ), Kwajelein (KWA), Kosrae (KSA), Pohnpei (PNI), and Chukk (TKK) before arriving in Guam (GUM). Economy fares regularly run over $1K (special discounts for residents of any of the destinations), but mileage awards are available…though difficult.  For example, you’ll need availability on each leg, the dates I searched had all legs available besides the final TKK-GUM leg.

  1. just took the hopper 2 weeks ago from Guam to HNL. Ended up being delayed 2 hours on Pohnpei Island and we had to skip Kwajelin stranding some 40 people for a few days. There were some pretty insane landings also.

  2. Flew on UA 154 the entire route from Honolulu to Guam departing on October 7, 2016. Travelled BusinessFirst–excellent.
    This was a bucket list item now crossed off. Loved every minute.
