I'd rather not be away for shabbos, but you should definitely go for it :)

Don't forget to request the FSML. Should be very fresh ex-HNL :)

Back on topic, am I really the only one insane enough here to do this?

I've wanted to do the island hopper for a decade now.  One thing I learned this week it's that I have to start whittling down the list already...
[Debating whether to even post in this thread.]

My brain is trying to concoct excuses, but...

Well once one would be going, may as well go for F on that long haul.

Can save 10K off that by booking EWR-HNL with SQ.
Can save a lot more by not flying NH F.

Just saw a video presentation on a UA flight right before departure about the Island Hopper. I've never seen it before, is this a new presentation?
