I would stop in HKG, TLV, NRT, and Hawaii.

If all routes have multiple frequencies or at least daily flights, in case of delays/changes...I would say, go for it !! Btw whatís total miles and $$ ?

I'm not asking for permission but I'll definitely try for the TR if I end up going.

This isn't one straight trip to get to Hawaii, I'd be stopping for a few days to a week in each location, the routings should work fine.
Miles and $$ depends on how and what I would book. CX is 70k+ ~$60, that's all I have booked so far.

I understand. I was saying that if each flight has at least a daily flight you should be fine ...does the rj flight fly daily? If not you can be stuck in amn ... on how you plan on booking, how many miles and yq will it be ?

Probably 50k AA for TLV-NRT in F, no YQ and then possibly 65k NH (+~$200?) for RT NRT-HNL in J or 75.5k AA for JAL F.

Would I be crazy to fly JFK-HKG-TLV on CX F/J, (stop in HGK,) then fly TLV-AMM-AUH-NRT, (assorted J/F) stop in NRT for a few days, continue on to HNL/OGG, and finish the trip with a $180 Y ticket?
Only worth it if you fly NRT-MNL-ROR-GUM-TKK-PNI-KSA-KWA-MAJ-HNL

I didn't even think of that, that's a great idea.

How do you work out NRT-MNL-ROR-GUM if the Island hopper leaves at 8:30 AM? Could just do NRT-GUM direct.
