Hawaiian Airlines recently welcomed its first Airbus A330 aircraft with fully lie-flat seating in a Premium Cabin that surrounds guests with modern, luxurious island-inspired designs and a twinkling constellation paying homage to the history of Polynesian navigation.
The 18 lie-flat seats fold into 180-degree beds that are 20.5 inches wide by 76 inches long, maximizing living space and providing options for both privacy and a shared flight experience.
Aligned in a 2-2-2 configuration, the seats are tailored to leisure guests (couples, families, honeymooners), while offering functions aimed at business travelers. Guests will enjoy multiple power ports, including two USB connections and one A/C outlet.
An advanced in-flight entertainment system is powered by the next generation of large-format tablets resting on an adjustable telescoping arm for optimal viewing angle and comfort.
Hawaiian collaborated with California-based consultancy PaulWylde to incorporate flowing curves evocative of the winds and ocean, while marrying organic textures and pops of bright saturated color in its Premium Cabin.
Hawaiian's newly outfitted A330 aircraft's Premium Cabin will enter the carrier's U.S. West Coast network next month as an exciting surprise-and-delight feature for guests. Sales for the Premium Cabin are expected to commence in the fall, when the first dedicated routes will be revealed along with new signature service elements and a host of new amenities.
Hawaiian will phase installation of additional A330 Premium Cabins starting this fall through early 2018. It will have 23 A330s by this summer after taking delivery of its final aircraft type on order.
