Together with some other spotters I witnessed the arrival and departure of Hawaiian Airlines’ new Honolulu-Boston-Honolulu route on 2019-04-05. The flight arrived 5:38 am, before sunrise, and pushed back from the gate at 8:09 am. In between, representatives of the airline gave us nice leis and some Hawaiian Airline swag.
The aircraft was an Airbus A330-243 (N382HA, c/n 1171). This was the airlines’ third A330, delivered in 2010, and is named “Iwakeli’i” (the Hawaiian name for the star constellation Cassiopeia).
Hanging out on top of the Logan central parking garage for almost three hours in near-freezing weather demonstrated our resolve to get pictures of the inaugural event.
