Hawaiian reconsiders it’s A330neo order


First they wanted the A350-800 but other than Aeroflot nobody else did. Both were eventually persuaded out of them. Hawaiian decided the deal for the A330-800neo was for them. 

It could reach London, India, and more besides. And now they’re not so sure it’s the right aircraft and are looking at 788’s instead, maybe as well as. Someone at Hawaiian needs to get their act together and make up their mind.

There doesn’t seem to be any real rationale as to why they would want one over the other. In range and economy terms they’re not dissimilar. 

There is though, dithering at Hawaiian. If it translates into a cancelled A338neo order, the entire sub-version -800 is in doubt. So far it’s the -900 that’s run away with the orders.
