    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?

    The aircraft is also used to fly to Ho Chi Minh on a daily basis. 3 aircraft must mean they are also here for maintainance from the Guam or Tokyo base.

    And from Guam can do onto HNL with a spot of Island hopping a few times a week.

    Continental used to have a hub at Guam (US territory in the Pacific), of course UA now has it.

    @amc1234
    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.
    Wouldn’t the Tokyo planes be maintained at Tokyo?
