Delta Air Lines is adding some new flights to its schedule and one of them will take the lead as the longest domestic flight in its route network. New service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) spans 5,095 miles and begins on November 21st.

The Points Guy reports that with the addition of Boston, Delta will serve Honolulu with 22 daily nonstop flights from eight of its nine hubs (it’s unable to fly from New York LaGuardia Airport (LGA) due to the perimeter rule that limits flight distance to 1,500 miles). The new route replaces the flights to/from New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK), which previously held the title of the longest flight at 4,893 miles). The flights between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) will use a Boeing 767-300ER with 26 Delta One,18 Premium Select, 21 Comfort+, and 151 Economy Class seats.

In addition to the new route to/from Boston, Delta is also adding three other seasonal Hawaii flights. These include:

  • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) to/from Kahului Airport (OGG)
  • Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) to/from Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL)
  • Seattle–Tacoma International Airport (SEA) to/from Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL)

One other transcontinental flight has also been added to the schedule. Service between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Seattle–Tacoma International Airport (SEA) will launch on December 21st and run year-round on an Airbus A321neo. When this starts, Delta will fly 38 peak-day departures to 13 destinations (including all nine hubs).

Anthony’s Take: Some great additions to Delta’s leisure offerings. We haven’t been to Hawaii in quite some time. Maybe 2025 will be a good year to visit.

Cool, but expect a high cash fare and probably 500,00 ( or more) Skymiles for a rt BOS-HNL Delata One seat.

Hopefully DL launches MIA-SEA daytime flights inbound and outbound, not late night and red eye on the return to MIA because AA and AS has those already, Miami needs other alternatives of scheduling flights
