Hawaiian Airlines unveils new design for 787 Dreamliner with luxurious suites. The 12 new Dreamliners are scheduled to be delivered in November, introducing new features.
Hawaiian Airlines is introducing 300-seat planes that are inspired by early Polynesian voyages and the textures and colors of natural elements found throughout the Islands. The carpets and seat fabrics are deep aqua and native plants, while the lavatory floors are black volcanic sand and the seat row numbers feature Hawaiian language.
Hawaiian's new design combines evocative cabin design with unparalleled service to make their 787 the most relaxing and enjoyable choice for travel to and from Hawai'i. The design and details reflect what it means to be the flagship carrier of the Hawaiian Islands.
Luxury Leihoku Suites are a nod to Polynesian explorers who navigated the Pacific using stars and other cues from nature. They feature a starlit cabin ceiling with lighting evoking Hawaii's sunrises and sunsets, as well as a sea of stars. The 34-suite cabin features lie-flat seats, an 18-inch screen, personal outlets, and wireless charging capabilities. The 1-2-1 configuration allows for direct access to the aisle, and middle seats can be private or combined.
The main cabin was designed with comfort and aesthetics in mind. Economy seats maximize seat space and feature ergonomic contours, inflight entertainment, USB charging ports, and 79 "Extra Comfort" seats with added legroom and AC charging outlets.
The Dreamliners will feature high-tech advances to make the flying experience more comfortable and efficient. These include sensors on toilets and faucets, Acoustic-treated engine inlets, Enhanced cabin air filtration, larger-than-average windows, and spacious overhead storage compartments. Additionally, the Dreamliners will be the most fuel-efficient widebody planes Hawaiian Airlines operates due to their lightweight structure, aerodynamics, and specialized engines.
