Hawaiian Airlines will swap out its ageing Boeing 767s between Brisbane and Honolulu in favour of newer Airbus A330s, bringing with it a better travel experience both up the front and down the back.
Every business class passenger picks up 3-4 extra inches of legroom, along with their own AC power outlet for keeping phones, laptops and tablets juiced up during the flight.
In economy, the A330 comes with seatback inflight entertainment as opposed to the tablet-for-hire arrangements on the Boeing 767, although anything beyond the basic audio channels and the Hawaiian Skies video still comes at an extra charge.
The big switcheroo happens on Friday December 5 out of Honolulu, with the first A330 bound for Brisbane as HA443, returning on December 6 on HA444.
Hawaiian Airlines ramped up its Brisbane flights in March this year, moving from three to four flights per week – while Jetstar will launch twice-weekly services on the route in December, also using an A330 with business class and economy.
