Hawaiian Airlines legroom

Seat pitch: 76-81cm

Pre-arranged seating

Hawaiian Airlines passengers can also reserve specific seats.

Child fares

Infants under the age of two may travel on an adult’s lap for free on domestic flights or, on international flights, for the ‘infant’ price. Discounted child fares can be found on international flights, which is under the airline’s discretion. There aren’t any child fares available on domestic flights.

Senior fares



Animals will not be transported on nonstop flights from the United States to Hawaii. They must travel to Hawaii via the airport’s animal quarantine area located in Honolulu. Hawaiian will accept pets such as cats, dogs and household birds, but it is the passenger’s sole responsibility to discuss with, in advance, their local government’s Departure of Agriculture in order to arrange the necessary paperwork.

Carrying musical instruments

Standard baggage allowances apply for musical instruments. As an alternative to checking it, a separate seat may be bought in order to carry a large or fragile instrument.

In-flight service

The airline offers complimentary drinks as well as alcoholic beverages for purchase. Because flights are so short, meals are not served on inter-island travel. Hawaiian Airlines is one of the few remaining airlines that still offers complimentary meals in the economy section of their planes.

In-flight magazine

The airline’s magazine, Hana Hou, is available on every flight and can be read online.

Airline alliances

Hawaiian Airlines is not part of a specific alliance, but mile-earning partners with American Airlines, Island Air, Delta Airlines and Virgin Atlantic Airways.
