Hawaiian Airlines unveiled the interior of its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and a new class of premium service called the Leihōkū Suites, elevating the quality of leisure travel and drawing inspiration from early Polynesian journeys.
The interior design features of Hawaiian’s 787, which will begin operating on a few routes early next year, will immerse passengers in the rich natural beauty of Hawaii through dramatic textures, island-inspired sunrise and sunset lighting, and sinuous ocean and wind patterns.
Hawaiian Airlines’ 300-seat 787 is equipped with its newest premium offering, Leihōkū (garland of stars), which consists of 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. The rooms, which are arranged in a 1-2-1 arrangement with doors, can provide isolation or a shared experience, with combined double seats allowing couples to fall asleep while gazing at a starlit ceiling.
In Hawaiian’s 787 Dreamliner Main Cabin, which has 266 Collins Aerospace Aspire seats with ergonomically contoured back and armrests, passengers will appreciate a light, contemporary design that maximizes seat space, provides more shoulder and hip room, and includes a 12-inch seatback monitor with USB-A and USB-C charging ports.
The 787 provides improved cabin air filtration, and with its carbon-fiber composite airframe, it can fly with a lower cabin altitude, making the flight more enjoyable. Guests will also notice a quiet cabin thanks to acoustic-treated engine inlets, as well as extra-large, dimmable windows, spacious overhead bins and lavatory toilets and faucets with touchless activation.
