Pualani Gold members receive a complimentary upgrade to Extra Comfort / Preferred seats on all flights to / from North America and international flights operated by Hawaiian Airlines (subject to availability). This benefit only applies to elite members. Please ensure that your HawaiianMiles number is listed on your reservation or added before completing the check-in process. You can register for a seat upgrade by checking in online, at the airport automatic check-in kiosk or on your mobile device at least 24 hours before departure. Seats will be announced on a first come, first served basis in order of Pualani Gold members.
Additional comfort seats are available on all Airbus A330 and 321. Priority services are available and equipment is provided. Enjoy your trip while relaxing in the wide-legged seats. Pualani Gold members receive a free upgrade to Extra Comfort seats on all flights operated by Hawaiian Airlines (may not be available depending on seat availability). Seat upgrades to Extra Comfort will be available at the front of the cabin for all aisle, window and center seats. Once confirmed, the seat cannot be changed.
If you have already assigned a seat on your Economy Class ticket, the system will automatically assign a similar Extra Comfort / Preferred seat to your existing seat, based on availability. For example, if you have already specified an aisle seat in economy class, the system will automatically search for an aisle seat for more comfort / preferred seats. If there are no vacant seats, the candidate for the next seat will be sought and in some cases window seats or central seats will be allocated. Seat selection will be made at the boarding gate once check-in has been accepted. When the upgrade is confirmed, gate staff will notify you and issue you a new boarding pass. At the same time, the first seat you specify will be invalidated in the system and will be assigned to another passenger.
The seat selection is made automatically by the system. Please note that depending on seat availability, additional / preferred comfort seats may be upgraded to center seats. Once the upgrade is confirmed, the request cannot be canceled or returned to economy class. Confirmed seats cannot be changed. Due to the automatic seat selection by the system, if you would like to have a specific type of seat or seat next to your companion, Hawaiian Airlines may not be able to accommodate your request.
