As well as the new business class product the airline has unveiled new Amenity Kits exclusive to the ‘Premium Cabin.’

Hawaiian partnered with local designer Sig Zane to design these new kits.

The kits include just about everything the old one did. However, the patterns are very different, and the socks are a pretty cool flip flop design.
