Living on Oahu means every flight is a long one, unless it’s inter-island of course, but there is one benefit and that’s having Hawaiian Airline’s headquarters nearby.
I got invited to view the full-scale and operational business cabin seats for their new Boeing 787 Dreamliner that will be in service early 2024, fingers are crossed.
In this video, I show you the features and test out the seat along with the other features. I also have some additional photos and thoughts below.
Center Aisle Seat Layout
With the partition fully raised.
All business class cabin seats will have direct aisle access.
As we have seen in the PR photos from Hawaiian the dark brown coloring paired with the teal trim really stands out nicely and looks polished. This is an unedited photo, as are all the photos in this article.
Armrest that raises and lowers depending on preference.
Center divider up between seats in the center aisle, its a 1-2-1 layout for first class.
Lay flat configuration.
Wireless charging area, very well done and the future of charging on planes.
Headphone cubby along with a mirror that tilts up for taller people, nice.
Dimmable light with touch button control on top
Charging ports and remote control
Seat controls and the tip of my toe 🙂
Seat number with yellow lighting to indicate “Do Not Disturb”
Divider controls and divider fully down
Footwell and tray table, I’m 6’2″, lots of room
I think the business class cabin is going to look gorgeous. The seating material and colors paired with the natural wood accents and classic Dreamliner lighting will really make this a first-class experience. Having been on dozens of long flight to the mainland I am just happy to have another 787 Dreamliner to choose from.
So what do you think? Excited for this aircraft to come online for Hawaiian?
