Looks fantastic! This particular livery really works for the A330!

Interesting, not a huge fan of the combo, think the livery looks better on the 767.

(and no, not a hater, I think the A330 is the most beautiful a/c Airbus put out)

But they should have painted some solo on the engines...

Hmm, not quite as good as I had hoped for, but it still looks great. I agree with those that think the 767 fits the HA livery better. The A332 looks a bit too "white". I think it's primarily the large white RRs.

Do we know (forgive me for being lazy and not searching) when it'll go into service? I'm going to Hawaii in May and will keep an eye out for it.

mazing!!! What a great looking paint scheme on a nice airplane!

I must confess that I did not know the color scheme of Hawaian until now. The colors look fantastic on the A330, but no doubt the colors would/will look good on other planes as well imho.

It looks okay, but the best livery for the A330 is Aeroflot

I agree. The winglets on the 767 are painted a lot nicer than these ones, but I think it's because they have a lot more room to play with.

have to agree that they should have painted the engines in shades of purple. Still very nice though.

BTW with their orders for A330 (10) and A350 (6) will they just replace their 767 or are those in part for expansion ?

I think it looks better on the 767 too. Maybe they need to extend the purple further up the fuselage length for the A330?

26 FX1816 : Very nice looking aircraft although I think Hawaiian has one of the nicest liveries around. It also looks great on the 763 and 712. FX1816
27 Blueman87 : when do they start JFK service
28 Fiveholer : Looks good, should look really good in the air with those graceful A330 wings! Danny
29 413X3 : Should have painted something on the engines, or a retro livery for the first new type in a while would have been really cool
30 OA412 : I don't believe that HA has announced JFK service.

32 MrSkyGuy : Looks like every other Hawaiian jet.. not to be glib, but honestly.
33 as739x : Better on the 767 for sure!
34 laca773 : Looks nice but this scheme works so much better on the 763s. I feel there's too much white going on. Perhaps they can add some purple or the HA insign
35 HNL-Jack : The HA livery really looks good. I would agree that, at least in the photo, the size of the airplane creates the impression of more white than the 763
36 mariner : I'n scratching my head. I've looked at photos of both and I can't see any difference. I think they both look good. mariner
37 laca773 : Hey Mariner, How are you? I think it looks good as well, though with the 332 being a larger a/c, it needs a lil more to tone down all that white in m
38 N593HA : It looks fantastic. I can't wait to see it at HNL. I really like HA's paint scheme. Assuming that HA gets at least one the two slots they applied for,

40 OP3000 : The front part of the plane looks a tad bit too eurowhite - but overall a nice, smart look.
41 borism : yup! yup! no! that would be quite tasteless, not HA style!

50 theredbaron : mmmm, not that great, MX A330 looks way better... Maybe I am biased... LOL
51 AirPacific747 : I think instead of plain white, it would look awesome with a pearl color.. it would remind you of the pearls in the oysters that you can probably find

57 Putnik : Hm. I actually like both Hawaiian livery and A330-200 but somehow the picture of the two combined was not that impressive. There is something "wrong"
58 MrSkyGuy : That's actually an idea that may have some teeth to it. I'd love to see a sample.
