Hawaiian Airlines has introduced the luxurious Leihōkū Suites for their Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet. These new suites are designed to represent the Hawaiian culture and rich nature in the best possible way.
Hawaiin Airlines is the main carrier of Hawaii and the largest flight operator from the US to Hawaii. With the hope to improve customer numbers further and become the best option to travel to and from the Hawaiian Islands, the airline has introduced new features, such as sunrise and sunset lighting and sinuous ocean and wind patterns inspired by the Hawaiian islands.
Leihōkū Suite Features
There will be a total of 34 Leihōkū suites on the Hawaiian 787s. Each suite offers passengers tranquillity while travelling with comfortable seating, charging ports, an in-flight entertainment screen, and uninterrupted privacy.
Hawaiian’s Chief Marketing and Communication Officer, Avi Mannis, says:
“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 Hawaii.”
Partnership With Adient Aerospace
The carrier became the first to partner with Adient Aerospace, a leading automotive seat company. Adient Aerospace is a joint venture between Boeing and Adient, and this partnership will bring more opportunities and luxuries to the airlines.
The CEO of Adient Aerospace, Tony Guy, said:
“It was evident from the beginning that Hawaiian Airlines is very passionate about its culture and branding, and making sure that this came through in the design language and in the passenger experience.”
Economy Cabins Also Improved
The main cabin of these Dreamliner planes will feature 266 Collins Aerospace Aspire seats. These seats have a 12-inch seatback monitor, back and armrests, extra space, and USB-A and USB-C charging ports. The plane will also feature 79 seats in the Economy Comfort layout category.
The delivery of the first 12 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners is scheduled for this November, and the planes are expected to be prepared for service at the start of 2024. Hawaiian hope the Leihōkū Suites will revolutionise air travel and make it more luxurious and comfortable.
