787 on the ground in Maui for 8 hours? Seems like a long time.

Seems like the wrong aircraft for the mission...

Perhaps they have no alternative, how does this stack up against the AC Schedule?

AC leaves aircraft on the ground at GRU for 8-9 hours routinely, but I think the time is used to perform certain maintenance functions.

Re WestJet, perhaps the layover is needed for Crew Rest ?  Or is that not long enough?

whats  the frequency of the flight.  Might it not be better to position a crew there for the return flight.  Makes for a great lay over.

It's to pick up connections on both sides. From another forum:

"The OGG schedule is pretty typical for longer mainland-OGG flights, actually. DFW/PHX/ORD-OGG all run on similar schedules as do lots of inland-HNL flights."
