Hawaiian Airlines has announced that it will introduce Extra Comfort Economy seating on long-haul flights from 1 June 2014. The new class of seating will offer passengers five more inches of legroom, priority boarding, on-demand in-flight entertainment (IFE) and power outlets to charge their personal devices.
Extra Comfort Economy will debut on the airline’s A330 aircraft from summer 2014, with 40 seats in rows 11-14 and 33-34 to be converted. Customers will have the option of purchasing the Extra Comfort seats when they book online.
Peter Ingram, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Hawaiian Airlines, said: “We are excited to introduce a product that was carefully designed based on the feedback of our guests.
“Combined with our award-winning in-flight service and hospitality, flying to and from Hawaii will be more enjoyable than ever with our new Extra Comfort seating.”
