N823AL The Aloha "Funbird" - One of my all time favorite liveries and a true classic! This was actually a throwback livery that Aloha used in the 1970's and brought back in the mid-2000's. Although the 737-200 looks old enough to be a true "retrojet", the plane was actually built in 1985.

N748AL Kaholalele aka "The Wyland Whale"- This 737-700 got a special makeover thanks to the famous marine artist Robert Wyland. The plane typically flew between OGG and SAN (who knows maybe because of Seaworld), but we were lucky enough to catch a ride on it going OGG-SMF.
PH-HZO Makali'i - This 737-800 is not so much a special livery, but rather a lease from European carrier Transavia (notice the registration is not a usual N-number). Aloha more or less kept the paint job, slapped their name on the side and was good to go. The best part of this plane was definitely on the inside though. My family and I nicknamed it the "Super Happy Green Smiley Plane". It's hard not to be happy when you're sipping a Guava Juice Mai Tai or Passion-Orange Ocean Vodka at 36,000 feet inside a jet that's decked out in a lime-green emoticon theme.
