Having just watched Amelia - A tale of two sisters, I wondered whether, had she landed successfully on Howland Island, what, or where, would the remaining subsequent stops for the rest of her equatorial journey, in 1937, been?

Were there any other stages that would have been as equally, or more, dangerous, and liable to failure, or was the stage at which she tragically failed the most dangerous of all of the journey's stops?

This image from the Wikipedia page, Amelia Earhart, implies that she would have flown on to Honolulu, but the text doesn't state that fact explicitly:

This table from Wikipedia shows the final two planned legs of her flight being:

July 3, 1937 Howland Island to Honolulu, Hawaii 1900 NM Planned leg

July 4, 1937 Honolulu, Hawaii to Oakland, California 2400 NM Planned leg
