Hawaiian Airlines Takes Delivery of Its First Boeing 787-9 Aircraft

Hawaiian Airlines has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 aircraft (registration number: N781HA).

Each aircraft is named after stars or constellations used by Polynesian navigators, with the first aircraft named ‘Kapuahi’.

Inspired by early Polynesian navigation, the design, created in collaboration with design consultant Teague, incorporates the Pacific voyage’s observation of stars, the sun, wind, waves, and wildlife. The carpets and fabrics are inspired by the natural elements of the Hawaiian Islands. The aircraft has 300 seats.

The premium cabin, named ‘Lei Hoku Suites’, features 34 seats arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration with direct aisle access, doors, and capable of full-flat reclining. Each seat has an 18-inch monitor, power outlets, and wireless charging, developed in partnership with Adient Aerospace.

The Main Cabin has 187 seats, featuring Collins Aerospace’s Aspire seats. It includes 12-inch monitors and USB-A and USB-C power outlets. The Extra Comfort seats, totaling 79, additionally offer AC power and more legroom.

Operations will start on April 15, with flights from Honolulu to San Francisco running until May 14. From May 14, the aircraft will be deployed on the Honolulu to Los Angeles route, and from May 15 on the Kahului to Los Angeles route. Twelve aircraft will be introduced by 2027.
