Honolulu to Jakarta

Bill feels good for today's flight to Jakarta. We expect him to depart around 0700 Hawaii time, 1500Z. Honolulu (PHNL) to Jakarta (WIHH) is planned at 5912 nm (Nautical Miles), this will take about 31 hours of flight time. On such a long flight, the winds and weather will be ever changing. 10 knots of headwind can adjust his flight time by over an hour. He may need to deviate around weather (thunderstorms) in the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). ZQGC has been working fuel and flight plan issues, and will continue to back him up enroute. He's got a long day ahead of him!
