Hawaiian Starts 717 Retrofit

Hawaiian Airlines has completed the retrofit of the first of its 18 717 aircraft.

The reconfigurations, which will be completed later this year, will provide its fleet with identical galleys, lavatories and 128-seat configurations.

The cabin décor is also being updated with colours “reflecting island scenery” and new lightweight seats from Acro Aircraft Seating.

“These new, modern design elements rejuvenate the interiors of our 717s while allowing us to deliver a consistent onboard experience for our guests," said Peter Ingram, CEO of Hawaiian.

“The new lightweight seats are engineered to ensure a maximum amount of personal space without compromising legroom or comfort.”

Hawaiian previously operated five different cabin configurations within its fleet.
