LAS and LAX RareBirds

I was out-of-town during the past week. I managed to get a few hours of spotting time at LAS and LAX, and will be posting some airliners and airlines not seen at HNL.

Our flights were on Hawaiian Air's new A330-243s N381HA ("Hōkūle‘a) [HAL8] and N382HA ("‘Iwakeli‘i") [HAL17], and Southwest's 737-3H4W, N373SW [SWA1793].

Hawaiian's N381HA (msn 1114) at HNL's Gate 28 gets prepped for our flight to LAS as HAL8.

Southwest's N373SW (c/n 26581), a 737-3H4, our ride to ONT, taxies into Gate C21 from PHX. This 737-3H4 has been fitted with Blended Winglets and had its eyebrow cockpit windows plugged.

Hawaiian's newest A330-243, N382HA (msn 1171) was our ride back home to HNL from LAS as HAL17. It's seen above parked at Gate 24, shortly after we arrived.

I also videoed the approach and landing of our return flight to HNL, and is posted on YouTube.
