All I can say is, it's about time! It seems like they are rightly going to be placing the A330s on international routes, which will allow them to finally be able to advertise a premium international product that's competitive with the majors.

They'll be found on ALL the 330s, so by default, all 330 destinations will see the new product.

My Guava Mimosa overflows......

Also, what slippahs said, glad to see HA stepping up the international product, long may it continue!

Hopefully these will be true lie-flats (180), and not angle-flats.

Edit to add that I just saw news report that the seat extends to 72 inches long. If you are less than 6'0" that should be enough...

Increase in air fare to recoup the investment in the lie-flat seat?

Also HA is adding 28 more Extra Comfort seats for a total of 68.

Configuration will be 18/68/192.

Link to HA news release

So First class between door 1 and 2?

And 4 rows of Extra Comfort in both Coach cabins?

No doubt the fares will rise, I think that's a given. I'm pretty sure this won't take up the entire section between the 1 and 2 doors. Like today, I believe there will be at least 1 row of Extra Comfort with the rest behind the galley and door 2.

I did read in one of the articles covering the product that Dunkerley was quoted as saying there is flexibility built into the design to ADD more to the 18 seat count should demand warrant. This leads me to believe they could easily add one more row and take the seat count up to 24 and utilize the whole section between doors 1 and 2.

Please tell me this will be on SYD - HNL. That will be a serious gamechanger with no airline flying that route with lieflats (and its an overnight flight in one direction)

Config

Config is 2-2-2 and won't be done until 2017 so patience is definitely required

gamechanger. Nice to see HA taking pride and improving their hard product against most other carriers putting their old horses out to the Hawaii pasture.
