Hawaiian Airlines has introduced a new interior for its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and new class of premium service – the Leihōkū Suites. Passengers onboard Hawaiian’s 787 – entering service beginning early next year on select routes will get to enjoy an interior apparently inspired by early Polynesian voyages, albeit with better IFE.
“The combination of our evocative cabin design and unparalleled service will make our 787 the most relaxing and enjoyable choice for travel to and from Hawaiʻi,” said Avi Mannis, chief marketing and communications officer at Hawaiian Airlines. “We take pride in sharing our home with our guests, and the design and details of this product truly reflect what it means to be the flagship carrier of the Hawaiian Islands.”
Hawaiian’s 300-seat 787 features its newest premium product, Leihōkū (garland of stars): 34 suites that envelop guests in a ‘tranquil, elegant space’ with fully lie-flat seating, an 18-inch in-flight entertainment screen, personal outlets, wireless charging and direct aisle access. Set in a 1-2-1 configuration with doors, the suites can offer privacy or a shared experience, with combined double seats allowing couples to fall asleep while gazing at a starlit ceiling.
