Hawaiian Airlines upgrade for more legroom

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 03:58 p.m. HST, Oct 29, 2013

Hawaiian Airlines said today it is redesigning its long-haul seating configuration on its Airbus A330 aircraft and will offer a new class of seats next year that offer more legroom and other amenities.

The new Extra Comfort economy seats will debut on all of Hawaiian's A330s on June 1 and will feature five more inches of legroom for a total of 36 inches. Hawaiian said the pricing for those seats are not available yet. 

In addition to more legroom, travelers who upgrade to Extra Comfort will receive priority boarding at the departure gate; complimentary on-demand in-seat entertainment featuring dozens of movies and TV shows; personal electrical power outlet to charge laptops and other electronic devices (some aircraft may not be equipped by June); souvenir pillow and blanket set (on international routes only); and premium meal selections (on international routes only).

If decision makers at Hawaiian Airlines sees this, can you please consider offering an amount of mileage for this upgrade? That would be super! Thank you!

The aircraft will still carry the same number of passengers, so the "extra" leg room will come at the expense of those travelling coach, who's seats will be crammed even closer together for the price of a "standard" ticket.

It's always been about money. Every effort is being made to squeeze the traveling public. Stateside one can travel by bus, and have used Greyhound numerous times a while back many years ago. Beats driving between Houston and New Orleans if you can get someone to drive you down to the bus depot. Great place New Orleans!
