Hawaiian Airlines is now selling new lie-flat seating in its premium cabin for travel beginning this December on routes connecting Honolulu with Narita, Japan, Sydney and Brisbane, Australia, and Auckland, New Zealand.


The premium cabin product will feature 18 leather, lie-flat seats that fold into 180-degree beds in a 2-2-2 configuration. Amenities include two USB connections and one AC outlet along with a 13-inch tablet, mounted to an adjustable telescoping arm and loaded with 100 hours of TV and movies.

The new premium product is part of the carrier's ongoing effort to retrofit its fleet of 23 Airbus A330 aircraft. Hawaiian introduced the new lie-flat seating as a limited "surprise-and-delight experience" earlier this summer on its North American network.

The carrier plans to expand the new premium seating to further markets through 2017.

Travelers can now purchase premium seats for flights beginning Dec. 5 between Honolulu and Narita, Brisbane and Auckland. The products are available for flights starting Dec. 13 on the Honolulu-Sydney segment.
