The Longest Distance Between Two Points

In other words, why fly from SEA to HNL via DEN, do you ask?


One three-year-old granddaughter's repeated cross-examination on the phone the other day, "Why were you riding those elephants," is harder to answer.

Let's put it this way:

SEA-HNL 2670 Miles (UA doesn't fly that route in any case)

SEA-SFO-HNL 3068 Miles

SEA-LAX-HNL 3504 Miles

SEA-DEN-HNL 4380 Miles

Any more questions?

Flying all the way in F while sipping the Mai Tais UA features on that route adds a lovely fringe benefit.

In fact, it's habit forming.
