Defy gravity with Hawaiian Airlines’ new Premium Cabin

Sophie Harrison

Australian travellers flying Hawaiian Airlines from today will step on board the airline’s newly redesigned Airbus A330 aircraft featuring an elegant new Premium Cabin and, wait for it, 18 lie-flat leather seats. Let’s take-off!

Incorporating flowing curves evocative of the winds and oceans, Hawaiian’s spacious Premium Cabin features 18 lie-flat leather seats that fold into 180-degree beds at a roomy 20.5 inches wide and 76 inches long. Aligned in a 2-2-2 configuration, the seats are part of the carrier’s ongoing effort to leisure guests such as couples, families and honeymooners, while offering superior functionality to the business traveller.

And wait! Hawaiian’s Executive Chef Chai Chaowasaree will delight guests with world-class cuisine presented on custom-crafted dinnerware, linens and trays, and showcasing delicious regional food by Hawai‘i’s top local chefs. A premier cocktail and full beverage bar service will offer specialty drinks such as a signature Mai Tai, local craft beer and Hawai‘i-made spirits.

The airline’s popular Extra Comfort product has proven a hit with Australian travellers since introduced in 2014. Expanding from 40 to 89 seats per aircraft, guests’ flying to Honolulu from Sydney and Brisbane in the new configuration enjoy an advanced on-demand in-flight entertainment system powered by a 13-inch wide-screen tablet, a personal power outlet, and priority boarding at the gate.

And from the moment travellers board a Hawaiian Airlines flight, the airlines’ signature mea ho’okipa (translation: I am host) on-board hospitality is offered – a warm and friendly celebration of the culture, people and Aloha Spirit of the Hawaiian Islands.

So what are you waiting for? Welcome aboard!
