United's HNL-NRT Changes

For almost thirty years, United Airlines' NRT-HNL flight had the flight number UAL880, and its return flight had UAL879. However, these flight numbers are changing today as UAL879 becomes UAL45, and UAL880 becomes UAL44. The former flight numbers comes from the acquisition of Pan American's Pacific routes in 1985.

With the flight number changes, also begins the new 787-9 service on this route. It features 48 business class seats, 88 "Premium Economy" seats, and 116 coach seats. Prior aircraft used on this route have been the 777-222ER, the 747-422, the 747-222B, and DC-10-30.
