Starting in August, Hawaiian Airlines will introduce new ‘Extra Comfort’ premium economy seats on the North American and international routes operated by its A330 fleet. This new class of seats will offer more legroom and a bundle of other amenities.
The 40 seats are available in Rows 11-14 and 33-34, and offer a 36in pitch (an extra 5in of legroom compared with standard economy); priority boarding at the gate; complimentary on-demand in-seat entertainment; and a personal electrical power outlet. On international routes, a souvenir pillow and blanket set are also provided.
One-way pricing of Extra Comfort will vary according to the North American or international flight route, but on average it costs an extra US$60 on domestic routes, and US$100 on international routes.
As part of the long-haul seating re-configuration of the A330 fleet, Hawaiian Airlines has also unveiled a refreshed interior cabin design. The interior has three themes – Earth in the 18-seat first class, ocean in premium economy, and sky in the 236-seat economy cabin, connected with storytelling of the essential elements of the Hawaiian Islands through the materials, colours and patterns selected.
