IMGP4629Hawaiian Airlines announced that added fully lie-flat seats in the business cabin of its new Airbus A330. The carrier will begin to operate the plane on its U.S. West Coast network next month.

The new lie-flat seats have curved shells, which are intended to evoke gentle ocean waves. The cabin has design elements reminiscent of the winds and ocean, and displays the constellation Makali’I, which helped in fiber-optic lights.

The new lie-flat seats are arranged in a 2-2-2 configuration and, as a result, only 66% of all passengers will have aisle access. Each seat is 20.5” wide, and extends into a 76” bed when fully reclined. Seats also offer power and USB outlets.

Hawaiian first announced plans for a new business-class cabin last year. Along with the new lie-flat seats, the airline added 28 additional seats to Extra Comfort, its premium economy lite section.

The aircraft is outfitted with 18 seats in the business-class cabin, 68 in Extra Comfort, and 192 in economy. The carrier’s current A330s are equipped with 18 seats in business class, 40 in Extra Comfort, and 236 in economy.
