Hawaiian Still Committed To A350-800s

Bloomberg reports that despite massive Airbus A350-800XWB order cancellations by other carriers, Hawaiian Airlines said they will stick with their purchase order for six A350-800XWBs, due for delivery in 2017.

At its peak in 2009, there were over 180 firm orders for the A350-800. Currently, there are only 34 firm orders for the smallest A350 variant. Most of the carriers have opted to convert their orders to the A350-900XWB, as Airbus has been persuading airlines to move to the larger variant.
