Hawaiian Air has been advertising an ad in the Bay Area that I find interesting. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard advertising that specifically states that an airline is using all wide bodies to the Islands. Considering many, if not most, flights between the Bay Area and Hawaii are on narrow bodies, I guess it’s a good advertising edge.
Just increases your chance of a center seat.
Wrong-o! Take a look at the Hawaiian 767 seating charts at Seat Guru. They are arranged 2-3-2 in coach. Therefore, you have 1/2 the chance of getting a center seat as compared to the narrow bodies (737, 757) used on the West Coast/Hawaii route. You also have twice the chance of getting an aisle seat compared to the 737 and 757 (2 aisles seats on these compared to 4 on the 767).
Narrowbody: 33% middles ( 2 / 6 )
767: 15% middles ( 1 / 7 )
777: 33% middles ( 3 / 9 )
330: 25% middles ( 2 / 8 )
HAL operates the 767 and 330, giving you the least middles.
I’ll take $10 on the 767, 330, 777 tri-fecta.
When did HAL start operating the 330?
