Regarding Hawaii, I’m excited to have new long-distance nonstop routes, especially since most, if not all, other options between the midwest or east coast and Hawaii go to Honolulu. It’s great to have nonstop options to the Big Island and Maui!
Regarding the other routes, it’s always good to have new nonstop options. One nice thing about this coming from United is that they don’t impose fuel surcharges. As a result, flights like these can be booked with minimal fees with partner miles, often for far fewer miles than United would charge. For example, these routes would be good candidates for using ANA miles to fly around the world in business class for only 115,000 miles.
