United 737s at HKGBack to Forum
Anonymous1 Oct 2015
I was departing HKG this afternoon and noticed three United 737-800s on the apron. Surely most North American destinations lie well beyond the range of these aircraft. I see that 737s are used on the HKG-Guam route, but this is a 4x weekly service and surely wouldn’t require UA having three aircraft.
Can anyone shed some light on this?1 Oct 2015
And from Guam can do onto HNL with a spot of Island hopping a few times a week.

Isn’t HKG-SGN an extension of UA117 which uses a 777? Having routes from Guam still doesn’t explain why there would be so many 737s stationed at HKG though.
