The airline’s team, working with the design team at TEAGUE, Boeing, and all the interior suppliers who contributed to this program, have achieved something remarkable. They have beautifully crafted an aircraft that seamlessly blends tradition and modernity. Inside the plane, Hawaiian Airlines promises a journey as memorable as the destination.
This week’s hot aviation news included fresh competition in the air.
This weekly post is my ‘round tuit’. Included are aviation stories which caught my eye and others which I couldn’t cover in-depth during the week, but thought Flight Chic readers would want to know about.
1. COMAC C919 takes off!
The successful first flight of the C919 narrowbody aircraft, built by the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC), is a huge aviation milestone.
Hawaiian Airlines has set a new passenger record with 11,050,911 passengers carried in 2016. This is an increase of 3.5 percent over 2015.
Hawaiian Airlines has revealed the amenities which will accompany its new A330 Premium Cabin experience, including a pair of in-flight socks woven to look like flip flops which I’m frankly flipping over.
If you enjoy food, but you’d rather be sipping on a coconut on the beach in Maui than reminiscing in the kitchen with Julia, I suggest a quick visit to Hawaiian Airlines.
The airline’s new series of cooking shorts “How to cook like a local” promise authentic island flavour in relatively little time.
Hawaiian Airlines is offering passengers the option to Bid Up for a First class flying experience on flights between Hawai’i and North America.
The airline’s Bid Up service, managed by ancillary software provider Plusgrade, is available to all passengers holding main cabin tickets and is made simple through an invitation sent by email to fliers on qualifying routes approximately ten days prior to the flight. Winning bidders are notified 48 hours before departure.
Hawaiian Airlines has produced a beautiful destination safety video that will get you dreaming of warm days on the beach and cool treks through verdant mountains. As an added twist, the video comes with subtitles in Hawaiian, so you can catch up on the lingo before you land.
If anything, that should get passengers to pay close attention, but the locations are gorgeous! Hawaiian made this a true ‘ohana project by featuring cabin crew and their family in the video demonstrating the safety instructions while enjoying fun outdoor activities.
