The Airline You May Not Want to Fly to Hawaii?

The Airline You May Not Want to Fly to Hawaii?
Meg Butler

For passengers flying to Hawaii, there’s good news and bad news.

The good news is that United Airlines is expanding its flights to Hawaii. Those new routes will start at the end of this summer beginning with 6 to 7 more flights between Los Angeles and Maui (Kahului) on August 21, daily direct flights between Los Angeles and Kona on February 14th and flights from San Francisco to Kona or Maui beginning on March 9th.

The bad news is that those flights will largely be on the new, notoriously cramped 737 Max 9 planes with tiny bathrooms and tight seating.

Which makes choosing Hawaiian Airlines’ slightly roomier planes (A321neos) that offer Extra Comfort seat options for passengers who want a little more room kind of a no-brainer if you have the option.

    I don’t agree with Scott Dylan on this one.
    He is probably mistaking UA with AA when it comes to 737 max seat size.

    On UA, 737 max are roomier than the legacy 737.
    UA 737-900 seat size: 30/16.3-17.3 (extremely tight)
    UA 737 max 9 seat: 31/18, about an inch more in each direction.
    The extras space is because of redesigned seats mostly as the number of seats is the same between 737-900 and 737 max (20/42/117), unlike with AA that has 12 more seats on the max compared to the legacy.
    hat’s why the AA 737 max is so bad and the UA 737 max ok.

    So when it comes to UA, the max is a better choice than the legacy 737 when it comes to seat space.

    Before you book a ticket on a non familiar airline or new plane, you can compare the seat sizes and comments on seat guru.
