|Quoting 747400sp (Thread starter):|
Back in the 80's they operated L1011, and the last time I saw a Tristar in HA color was
AirFleets claims they had 8x L1011s in the mid-80s to early 90s although I can't remember seeing them in person (at HNL
, a least). We flew UA
(exclusively) to/from the isles and I suppose I never gave much thought to HA
or any of the non-legacies at the time (at least those that didn't operate the 747). I do recall, however, HA
's ubiquitous metallic-hued DC-10s and was glad to see those fly the coop in favor of the 763 and updated livery they flash nowadays. The metallic-skinned scheme washed out HA
's colors/logo which even in its older form was beautiful (I think it does the same for AA
, but that's for another thread).
While I haven't had an opportunity to check out their A330s, I've flown HA
's 763s on two occasions and found them to be pretty much par for the course in terms of comfort, cleanliness, appearance, etc. IMO, HA
's service is what really sets it apart from other carriers serving Hawaii which is frankly not surprising considering HA
is essentially the "national" carrier for Hawaii in general (if there were such a thing).
I can't imagine what a 777 would look like in HA
livery but imagine it would be gorgeous.
