Post Updated 2/24/24 with latest 787-9 flight dates and times

Hawaiian Airlines' 787-9 Business Class Leihoku Suites with closing suite doors will launch on select Dreamliner routes on April 16, 2024, a vast improvement from the current subpar Hawaiian Airlines A330 First Class with its 2-2-2 seating configuration.

The 787-9 Dreamliner will have 34 business class seats out of 300 suites total, nearly doubling the share of business class to over 11%, compared to the 18 premium seats on the A330-200, only 6.5% of the seats.

The new suites are a customized version of the Ascent seats manufactured by Adient Aerospace, the same ones chosen by Qatar for its 787-9 Business Class Suite and by American Airlines on future 787-9 orders. The seats are in a 1-2-1 herringbone configuration, each with direct aisle access. Window seats are angled toward the window, while paired honeymoon seats angle away from each other toward the aisle, the opposite of JAL 787-9 Sky Suite III Business Class, which angles paired seats toward each other and away from the aisle. While the advantage is that one's head is further away from the aisle, it's potentially more awkward, even with the privacy divider, to have one's head so close to a stranger's if you're flying solo and don't manage to snag a window seat. On the other hand, for couples traveling together, it's also not as easy to have eye contact, given that the seats angle away from each other.

A privacy divider between the paired seats can be lowered for couples and travel partners, or raised for those not traveling together. Other amenities include an 18 inch in-flight entertainment screen, power outlets below a small storage unit.

The 787-9 Dreamliner offers enhanced cabin air filtration (helpful at filtering out not only allergens and viruses, but also volatile organic compounds that can dry out and adversely affect passengers), and its carbon-fiber composite airframe permits travel at a lower cabin altitude, and this lower altitude typically makes for a more comfortable flight, without the mild altitude sickness and headaches common at higher altitudes. The cabin also has greater humidity, 6-7% vs. the typical 2% of earlier generation largely aluminum aircraft. Guests will also notice a quiet cabin thanks to acoustic-treated engine inlets, as well as extra-large, dimmable windows, spacious overhead bins and lavatory toilets and faucets with touchless activation.
