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?
@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?
