Hawaiian joins other airlines in adding seats

Hawaiian Airlines Hawaiian Airlines

DALLAS (AP) - Hawaiian Airlines plans to add seats to planes that it uses to hop around the island chain.

Airline executives said Wednesday that they will put up to 10 more seats in its Boeing 717 jets by using thinner seats.

Parent company Hawaiian Holdings Inc. is holding its annual investor day in New York.

The airline has been adding routes to bring more Asian vacationers to Hawaii. Executives say that when they start getting new and more fuel-efficient Airbus jets in 2017, they'll add new destinations linking Hawaii with the mainland U.S.
