Great photo! I am searching the internet trying to find an answer with no luck, do you know why Airbus would fly through tiny Goose Bay, and through Boeing territory Snohomish County on the way to Hawaii? Are those airports cheapest to fly through? Many thanks!

Joshua Miller - likely since this was a delivery flight and not a revenue flight, the intent was to fly the most fuel efficient route for the distance from the starting point to the end destination. Prevailing winds aloft at cruise altitudes certainly factored into the flight planning.

Hey, Joshua...I'll try to lay it out in a hopefully non-confusing manner. First I offer the "one picture is worth a thousand words" option.
.
-> Go to Great Circle Mapper: gcmap dot com
-> Copy and paste the following string into the white search box at the top-left of GCM's home page: edhi-phnl,edhi-cyyr-kpae-phnl,edhi-cyyr-panc-phnl
-> Click on the "MAP" button just below the search box. The resulting graphic will depict should answer your question!
.
Here's the spelled-out version: Great circle distance Hamburg-Honolulu is 7,226 statute miles. The Hamburg-Goose Bay-Paine Field-Honolulu routing is 8,134 statute miles, which is broken up into segments of 2,781, 2660, and 2,695 miles, respectively.
.
The routing is about as close to the true great circle as can be reasonably done.

Range of the aircraft. About 5 or so hour flight and need fuel. Most new airbus aircraft fly thru here. This particular one went to Alaska then destination.
