Hawaiian Airlines has released the first details of its new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft which will feature a new class of premium service for the airline – the Leihōkū Suites.
Scheduled to enter service in early 2024, the 300-seat Dreamliner will feature 34 of the new Leihōkū Suites in the carrier’s largest ever premium cabin, all with direct aisle access, full lie-flat seating, 18″ in-flight entertainment screen, wireless charging ports and more.
Set in a 1-2-1 configuration with doors, the suites can offer privacy or a shared experience, with combined double seats allowing couples to fall asleep while gazing at a starlit ceiling.
Hawaiian’s 787 will have a simulated cabin sky, depicting soft daylight, soothing sunrises and sunsets, or dramatic starry evening skies. Guests in Leihōkū Suites will gaze up at a luminous star compass ceiling evoking the constellations that guided Polynesian voyagers at night.

“The combination of our evocative cabin design and unparalleled service will make our 787 the most relaxing and enjoyable choice for travel to and from Hawaiʻi,” said Avi Mannis, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at Hawaiian Airlines.
In developing its Leihōkū Suite, Hawaiian became the first airline to partner with Adient Aerospace – a joint venture between the Boeing Company and Adient, a world leader in automotive seats.
In Hawaiianʻs 787 Dreamliner Main Cabin, consisting of 266 Collins Aerospace Aspire seats with ergonomically contoured back and armrests, guests will enjoy a lightweight, modern design that maximizes seat space, offers more shoulder and hip room, and features a 12-inch seatback monitor with USB-A and USB-C charging ports.
Seventy-nine Extra Comfort seats offer more legroom and access to AC outlets.
Hawaiian Airlines is scheduled to receive the first of 12 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners in November, with remaining deliveries planned through 2027.
