Lie-flat beds on Hawaiian Airlines to Honolulu
- October 13, 2016
Hawaiian Airlines is introducing its new premium cabin offering fully lie-flat seating on board Airbus A330 aircraft for travel starting in December. Hawaiian’s Airbus A330 Premium Cabin blends island-inspired luxury and comfort with the airline’s signature in-flight hospitality.
Incorporating flowing curves evocative of the winds and the ocean, 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 ideally tailored to leisure guests such as couples, families and honeymooners, while offering superior functionality to the business traveller.
Hawaiian partnered with renowned local designer Sig Zane on a new line of complimentary amenity kits, a cotton quilt and a lounging pillow all fashionably adorned in a ‘Auli‘ilani lehua flower pattern. As they relax on their way to Hawai‘i, guests in the premium cabin receive a selection of soothing products, including a hand and body balm, lip balm and hydrating mist, dental kit, a bamboo comb, and socks with a playful slipper design that invites travellers to “E Hiamoe Maika‘i” (Sleep well). An eye mask, plush mattress pad and pillow are provided for added comfort and a restful sleep.
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, wines selected by Hawaiian’s Master Sommelier Chuck Furuya, local craft beer and Hawai‘i-made spirits.
The premium cabin is available for travel from Auckland as of 5 December. Hawaiian’s lie-flat seats debuted this summer as a surprise-and-delight experience for guests travelling on the airline’s North America network. The Premium Cabin will arrive in additional markets as the airline retrofits its fleet of 23 wide-body A330 aircraft through 2017.
