Yes, kind of silly to discuss since it is 2021 before the first one goes into service.

Lots of work going on behind the scenes to prepare for the 787-9, but none of it is really all that newsworthy. However, there have been some major decisions like the thrust rating, cabin configurations and seat vendors that were recently made. When there's actually information to report, I'm sure HAL will make it known.

I really like how the end of the 787 is so pointy!

From the same article: "The first of ten Boeing 787-9s on order will join the Hawaiian Airlines fleet in 2021 and cover major trans-Pacific routes spearing out from Honolulu."

Uh, can we get this bird to go n/s to Europe, please?

Was just looking at the “Aspire” Y seat that’s been picked (as installed recently on UA 777-200’s) it seems to aspire to be more comfortable-particularly in the 3-3-3 config that HA will likely go with down the back-unless they’re taking a cue from ANA/JAL on the comfort factor or putting in a proper W/Premium Economy-the 787 will be painful down the back for those that enjoy the A330 in Y.

If they want to pitch themselves as premium for getting to Hawaii all economy seats should be at least the equivalent to their regular comfort+ seat pitch. Premium economy on HA would be interesting, they would make a heap on these with bids. Seems people rather bid then pay upfront for the premium seats, even if costs more in the long run.
