This is the 5th one. Four more are coming in the first half of next year, then more in 2013 and 2014.

Beautiful! I have always loved Hawaiian's colorscheme. HAL ... how do you like flying the A330? I'm partial to the 767 myself (only as a passenger) but would love to hear your insight on which you prefer, differing quirks, etc. These things fascinate me!


Please direct your attention to the flight attendants in the cabin...

Thanks for sharing.

Haven't been on one of our 330's yet. I flew the 320 while on furlough a few years back, but will be doing a transition/upgrade to Captain on the 330 early next year. I'll let you all know how it goes once I'm done with training.

Congrats for the upgrade, the HA A332 is quite a nice ride and great looking machine for sure. Safe to assume the 332 will be Seattle bound soon?

What's this one named?

(FlightAware is showing HAL8005 en route from LAX as I type this, ETA 2:52 AM HST. I'm guessing that's the flight for this plane.)

In keeping with the Constellation theme, our newest aircraft is named Hokupa'a, the Hawaiian name for the Constellation Polaris.
SFO will be the next city to see the A330 beginning in November.


Aloha,

I had a bit of an adventure a few months back going to GUM - missed flights, late connects... DCA-IAH-GUM-NRT became DCA-IAH-LAX-HNL-MAJ-GUM.. anyway, I ended up getting transferred from Delta to Hawaiian on the LAX-HNL leg... made it over to T6 with a few minutes to spare and found myself in row 41 on N383HA. Very nice plane. I appreciated the USB plug in the seat, AVOD was nice too.

Yes, quite the beauty she is even moreso with the HA livery. The 332 is my favorite WB and I hope the 359 doesn't kill her.

HA has come a long way since the late 80's when we wouldn't sell them spare parts for their TriStars unless they paid cash!

Boy I hope so - I like the 767's but would love to hitch a ride on the A-330, especially if HAL was the driver.

I can't believe how fast it's being put into service. It landed at 3:04 am, parked at the hardstands for about an hour and then was tugged into gate 26 waiting for it's lucky passengers apparently.

New toy? Hasn't Hawaiian had the A330 in service for at LEAST 1 year?

Weak OP is weak. Call me when they roll in their A350.


25 Post contains images TrnsWrld : Very slick looking aircraft!!! The A330 remids me of some sort of sleek exotic sports car. Never been on one, but wouldnt mind taking a ride on one
26 joelyboy911 : This is the newest delivery. It may not be as outrageously exciting as the EIS of the first of a new type, but it's still an achievement and a milest
27 American 767 : Does that mean the 767s are on the way out? It sounds like they'll be gone in the mid 2010s.
28 mhkansan : I doubt it. HA have spent a lot updating their 767s and they are not all that old. I'll bet they are buying the 332s for their range and for new expa

32 Sevensixtyseven : Is Gate 26 the only A332-capable gate that Hawaiian can use? (I realize that other gates are A330 capable) When I flew LAS-HNL-LAS in February, Fligh
33 azjubilee : Coincidence... I've left from 27 before. Interestingly, I've only ever arrived and departed on the 767 from the interisland concourse.
34 RayChuang : I haven't heard about when will HA assign the A330-200 to their international routes--it seems HA is primarily flying the A332 between HNL and US West
35 je89_w : I believe most gates on the Ewa side are HA A332 ready, including gates 24 and 25. They do tend to use 26 and 27 the most though. They've been flying
36 jetboy757 : Sevensixtyseven I'm not really sure on what exact gates can handle the HA A330, but I have seen it park in Gates 19, 24, 26, 27. A330's from jetstar,
37 ha763 : What makes it even more unbelievable for me is that I used to work at AQ and for long enough to get flight benefits and still never stepped one foot
38 Bluewave 707 : N384HA is named "Hōkūpa‘a" (Polaris or North Star). It left TLS as HAL9975 to LAX, and today as itʻs 1st rev flt from LAX to HNL as HAL8005. http

45 Sevensixtyseven : Unfortunately, you've got US as the main carrier to Hawaii out of Phoenix. This winter, you've got 4x daily on some days to HNL, 2x to OGG, 1x to LIH
46 SANFan : Keep in mind HA has already announced the cancellation of PDX-OGG early next year, with that a/c being shifted to SJC-OGG and OAK-OGG... I'm afraid t
