A good sale to the Philippines.

For #avgeeks who want to take the United flight #154 aka the Island Hopper, this fare has some availability. For example – departing on September 7th from SFO connecting to flight #154 on September 8th — so search for that specific flight, do ua hnl ua154 gum on the outbound Advanced Routing Code field. Flight #154 is the flight from Honolulu to Guam. The reverse flight from Guam to Honolulu is flight #155. So to search for that, do ua gum ua155 hnl ua on the return Advanced Routing Code field. These flights are not daily. If you want to take it to the next step, you can also connect from #154 to #193 which is GUM to ROR (Karor, Palau) to MNL.

    Finding the island hopper on ITA seems straightforward, but how do I book the island hopper?

      @Brandon – we updated the post with booking instructions that worked for us using Vayama. We know that calling it in also might work depending on how good the agent is.
