During the opening credits (seasons one to six), the Hawaiian Airlines jetliner seen is an Airbus A330-200. Hawaiian Airlines signed a 4.4 billion dollar Memorandum of Agreement with Airbus in 2007, where the A330s have been used in place of their existing Boeing 767s for non-stop flights to the U.S. East Coast. The 767s in service will be retired after 2015 - three 767s were sold off to United Airlines (the previous airline sponsor of the classic series). Hawaiian Airlines was in the process of procuring the Airbus A330NEO (New Engine Option) but entered into a nonbinding agreement with Boeing where the airline ordered the 787-9 with an option to order 10 more.

The dancers in the opening credits are actually performing native French Tahitian "'O 'tea tamuré" dance (female in traditional Tahitian grass skirt with hips rapidly moving to fast drumming in a figure 8) and the male performing the traditional "danse du feu", or fire dance, and have no relation whatsoever to traditional native Hawaii dances. The hula dance, the traditional native Hawaiian dance, does not feature drums, nor grass skirts, nor rapid hip movements; its costume is made of medium length, green "ti" leaves and its main focus is on the dancers' hands, by which they tell a story. No percussion for Hawaiian hula, but their music is the unmistakable ukulele sound. See more
