Any tips for going on an Inaugural Flight?

So I just booked my flight from Los Angeles to Kahului with Hawaiian’s new 787! The flight isn’t until May 15th, 2024. I was just curious as to how these type of flights work? Should I get their earlier than usual?

Also this will be my first flight as an adult as I recently turned 18. I’ve never flown alone before so I was curious to see what it’s like to go solo.

Thank ya!


You might find some sort of party at the gate and/or onboard, giftbags and more!

These flights are for showcasing their new aircraft
and they still get you from Point A to Point B, but with a lot more celebration and joy!

You should probably arrive at the gate a bit earlier than usual to not miss anything.

Make sure to enjoy the moment and take lots of pictures!


There’s a 99% chance your flight won’t depart on time. Inaugurals never do.


I’ve flown solo quite a number of times, being a minor, and honestly, nothing really changes, especially if this is a domestic flight. In Europe (E.U.) at least it is incredibly easy to travel alone. I doubt it’ll be different in the US.
Just think about what your parents would do in this situation and you’ll be good ;)

Oh and we want pictures !


Oh I got plans for those!


aw shoot. Hopefully I can catch my connecting flight to Honolulu! Then I will be flying the 787 again back home. Oh yes I’m doing this trip all in one day too

Flying solo in the U’S’ as a minor is super easy. It’s pretty much the exact same as flying with your parents just more fun.

If the chickens are anything on Maui like here on Kauai you’re in for some Bak-Bak good times!


Hmm maybe I should try to rebook a later connecting flight?

i still find it funny that haōleʻs find the chickens so crazy, like i mean are chickens not that common on the mainland? (no offense)

You are correct, 😂 the mainland does not have chickens running around unless your at a petting zoo or state fair. I think their great and beautiful.
