Lets just say it if isn't Boeing you aren't going (my apologies to Boeing for stealing their line). Seriously I believe its 763 and 757 and the top two choices.

I agree. I personally have flown numerous Seven-Fives to HNL.

The 767 (counting all variants) comes in first place, and the 757 I belives comes in a close second. HNL used to be a widebody trijet haven!

Unofficially its looks like this (West Coast of the US and I'm including LAS & PHX)
767 type = 25 flights
757 type = 14 flights
737 type = 7 flights
and bring up the rear is two 777's from SFO.

Yup, at one point UA, NW, CO, AA, and HA were all flying DC-10s to HNL, with only an occasional 744 by UA and NW, and TZ and DL had the L-1011.  yes 
Boy I miss those days...

However I am very happy CO has all 764 service to HNL. My favorite ride for sure.

Did that include the Hawaiian Airlines 767-300's from SMF, SJC, SEA, PDX, SAN, PHX?

Does this include the TZ 737-800's from LAX, OAK, ONT-HNL, ITO, OGG?

Does this include the NW 757-300's from SEA, PDX, SFO, LAX-HNL;SEA-OGG?

Delta also is usually all 767-400ERs, although the ATL-HNL route occasionally gets an equipment substitution with an international 767-300ER. I really hope Delta never puts 757s to HNL from the west coast and SLC. The 767-400ER, with its Boeing Signature Interior, is one of the best aircraft to HNL.

Me too, I remember many flights to Hawaii on DC-10s from Hawaiian and a few NW 747 flights as well.

Yes to all the above to HNL, as the question was between West Coast to HNL. Information taken from the OAG.

I mirror your sentiments exactly, except with CO instead of DL. CO lately switched to the 757s for the LAX-OGG runs, and I pray it doesn't infiltrate to HNL. CO's 764s (also with the signature interior and ptv's) in my opinion are the best, most comfortable aircraft in the whole fleet. Service with aloha from the heart  Smile Go CO Go!!

Back in the 80's when I lived in Laie (Oahu) the 747's and the DC10's were the strong movers. NW, UA, CO, TWA used to have plenty of Jumbos at HNL.

I don't think you missed one. Perhaps someone thought that TZ's LAX-OGG was a 738?

they are also west coast-HNL too...

Then if we add YVR we have HQ#879 which is a 757, and Westjet's #965 a 737 and the two times a week Air Pacific's 737.

The thread is "HNL", but Hawaii includes more than HNL. Isn't the TZ flight to ITO also a 738?

As for SMF (Sacramento Intergalactic Spaceport):

If you want to talk Maui (OGG) then AQ has flights 467 (departs from) and 468 (arrives to) SMF with 737-700's.

Hawaiian serves HNL with flights 19 (departs from) and 20 (arrives to) SMF with 767-300's.

Are there any regularly scheduled Airbus flights to Hawaii? If I'm not mistaken, NW's MSP-HNL on the A330 next year is the first, no? And after NW pulls the DC-10s, will there be any more McDonnell Douglas flights? Maybe just FX?

Not from North America. EVA Air uses an A330-200 from Taipei, and Philippine Airlines uses an A340-300 from Manila.

Quoting Web (Reply 22):

Possibly the Omni charter flights from Las Vegas. Looks like they switched from the DC-10 to the 757-200 in May (the only flight I can see is the current one, they might have another with a different flight number that doesn't operate today, but is still the DC-10).

For a long time AC's SYD flights were on A340s but have been downgauged to 763ERs
