LUNENBURG, N.S. – The RCMP are seeking the public’s help in the theft of an historic object once owned by Nova Scotia’s most famous sea captain — Capt. Angus Walters, skipper of the schooner Bluenose.The Mounties say that some time between last September and July 17, someone broke into a property in Kingsburg, N.S., and stole a brass weather vane once owned by Walters, who skippered the famous schooner during its racing heyday in the 1920s and 1930s.The 45-centimetre weather vane is in the shape of a sperm whale, and was stolen from a shed.Police say the item holds sentimental as well as historic value.Built in Lunenburg in 1921, the original Bluenose was a Grand Banks schooner often used for fishing, but it won international fame for its speed — routinely defeating the fastest American schooners.It remained undefeated until its final race in 1938 and was later sold off and used as a tramp freighter until it hit a reef and was wrecked off Haiti in 1946.
21 October 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has exhorted the United Nations to take urgent actions to reverse the “regrettable trend” of sluggish advances made towards achieving gender parity in the Organization. That goal was to have been reached by 2000, but women only comprise 38.2 per cent of staff in the UN system, recording only a 1.3 per cent increase between 1 January 2005 and 30 December 2007.Statistics “show clearly that the pace of progress towards the goal of gender parity has been markedly slow, even marginal,” Mr. Ban writes in a report to the General Assembly made public today.UN bodies have reported impediments that fall into seven broad categories, he says: inadequate accountability, monitoring and enforcement mechanisms; the lack of special measures to achieve gender balance; the absence of a focal point system; limited flexible work arrangements; lack of outreach in recruitment; low numbers of qualified women applicants; and lack of adequate data on the causes of high attrition rates for women.In the UN Secretariat, the proportion of women in the professional and higher categories has remained nearly static, posting growth of only 0.1 per cent in the two years since mid-2006.But in spite of this “marginal” progress, there has been increased awareness of the issue of achieving gender parity in the UN. The bolstered prominence of the issue, coupled with the knowledge of minimal advances, could propel positive change, the report notes.“The entire system must more than redouble its efforts through adopting new policies where none exist and more rigorously implement existing ones,” Mr. Ban says. “Only then can meaningful [advancements] towards gender parity be achieved in the United Nations system.”In the new publication, the Secretary-General emphasizes the responsibility of senior managers to ensure that existing policies are implemented.“Efforts must be made to overcome the United Nations system’s informal organizational cultures which constrain the advancement of women staff,” it says, calling for putting flexible work arrangements into practice.Almost all organizations within the world body face large numbers of retirements in the near future, providing an opportunity to hasten progress towards stepped-up promotions and recruitment of qualified women.The report also singles out some agencies for praise for their good gender balance practices, including the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which has laid out measures for reaching 50 per cent representation of women at senior levels by 2015.It also commends the UN Development Programme (UNDP) for a recent report recommending affirmative action to attain and sustain the 50/50 parity goal, along with more efficient inter-agency mobility, especially among women in management positions.

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that jail officers may conduct strip-searches any time they want — even for the most minor crimes and when there’s no evidence of contraband such as weapons or drugs.But Sheriff Garry Lucas and his top officers say it’s not needed at the Clark County Jail, and his officers will continue to follow state law. In addition, some have said the 5-4 Supreme Court ruling goes too far in invading inmates’ privacy, according to a story by Adam Liptak published April 2 in the The New York Times.“Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, joined by the court’s conservative wing, wrote that courts are in no position to second-guess the judgments of correctional officials who must consider not only the possibility of smuggled weapons and drugs, but also public health and information about gang affiliations ,” Liptak wrote.On the other hand, the Times story says, “Justice Stephen G. Breyer, writing for the four dissenters, said the strip searches the majority allowed were “a serious affront to human dignity and to individual privacy” and should be used only when there was good reason to do so. Breyer said the Fourth Amendment should be understood to bar strip searches of people arrested for minor offenses not involving drugs or violence, unless officials had a reasonable suspicion that they were carrying contraband, the story says. Asked about the ruling, Lucas said, “strip searching every individual for any arrest is not necessary in order to maintain security of our facility.”As to whether the ruling will mean more strip searches here, Lucas said: “No. Clark County and all jails within the State of Washington must conduct strip searches consistent with State Law RCW 10.79.” Find it at Searches and Seizures.
WILMINGTON, MA — Below is an important announcement from WCTV Executive Director Shaun Neville:BackgroundFor more than 30 years, WCTV has had three television channels. While the numbers have changed, the concept has been the same: One channel is known as “Public”, a place where community producers can air content. The other channels are “Education” and “Government”. The former has included all school-related activities (including sports) and the latter includes all government meetings, in addition to programming produced by government officials.WCTV surveys over the past two years have shown that viewers are most interested in meetings, community events, school events and election coverage. Our channel structure currently divides these categories among three channels.When someone asks, “What channel are you on?”, the response is usually another question: “What are you looking for?” Programs from the library, Recreation Department and local scouts (to name just a few) also challenge the traditional definitions as to whether something is “public”, “educational” or “governmental”.Coming In January 2019WCTV (Comcast 9 / Verizon 37, formerly WCTV Public) will serve as the station’s primary channel for Wilmington content. This will be home to all live programming, major community & school events, sports and election programming. It will also include time blocks dedicated to Wilmington volunteer producers, even if their content is not specifically Wilmington-centric.WCTV Meetings (Comcast 22 / Verizon 38, formerly WCTV Government) won’t change much, but instead of airing content that is produced by government officials, this will almost exclusively be for municipal meetings. Note that live meetings may simulcast on our main channel and government channel. We know how important government meetings are to people and want to make sure they don’t miss them.WCTV Access (Comcast 99 / Verizon 39, formerly WCTV Education) represents the most dramatic change to our traditional lineup. This channel will feature programming from community producers, as well as public access programs that are produced outside Wilmington. It’s also where community-centric and school-related programming will go for a “longer shelf life” outside of our main channel schedule.What Channel Are You On?The answer is now: Comcast 9 / Verizon 37. Much like ESPN and HBO, we’ll have a main channel dedicated to the most relevant material, and then secondary channels for specific interests. We promise that each night starting at 7PM on WCTV, you can tune in to find either a live program or timely community content, whether it be an event on the common, a concert at the schools or an election-related interview.As a town, Wilmington isn’t divided along “public”, “education” and “government” lines. By putting content that is most relevant to our audience on one channel, we believe we make WCTV a better destination for television viewers.Got a question or feedback?

Kapil Sharma, Dharmendra, Ginni ChatrathInstagramKapil Sharma is on his way to become a father and the ace comedian is leaving no stone unturned looking after his pregnant wife Ginni Chatrath who is currently in her first trimester.Ever since Kapil learned about Ginni’s pregnancy, he has reportedly made a lot of changes in his busy shoot schedule to be with his long-time girlfriend and now wife.According to a report in Dainik Bhaskar, during the initial days of pregnancy, Kapil used to quickly wind up for the day and rush to home to take care of Ginni. And now that Ginni is currently in Amritsar, Punjab, Kapil, who has been shooting for The Kapil Sharma Show in Mumbai, had been flying to and fro whenever he he gets time from his work schedule.Since there was nobody to take care of Ginni in Mumbai because of Kapil’s busy schedule, Ginni had flown to Punjab to stay with her family. And though Kapil had not spoken about Ginni’s pregnancy, his friend and co-star Krushna Abhishek and wife Kashmera Shah, on their twins’ Rayaan and Krishaang’s second birthday bash on June 2, had said that they are very happy and excited for Kapil’s baby to arrive.As per the report, Kapil along with Ginni had flown to Jalandhar on June 3 and stayed there for a night. The couple then flew off to Manali to spend some time together and has even shared a few photographs from the trip on his Instagram. The comedian then flew back to Mumbai to shoot for The Kapil Sharma Show. Kapil Sharma, Ginni ChatrathInstagramFor the uninitiated, Kapil and Ginni had tied the knot on December 12 and 13 at a lavish wedding ceremony in Jalandhar in the presence of their close friends and family. After the wedding, the newly-weds hosted two receptions, one in Amritsar and another in Mumbai. Both the events were star-studded affairs and saw the presence of many celebs from the Punjabi and Bollywood film industry. In February 2019, Kapil hosted another wedding reception in Delhi, which was graced by many prominent politicians and cricketers.
Kashmiri political party Jammu & Kashmir Awami Forum (JKAF) held a meeting in Shopian on Thursday and announced an initiative to denounce youths engaging in militant activities. The families of 118 Kashmiri militants attended the meeting near the District Collector’s office. It was also attended by the parents of top Hizbul Mujahideen commander Saddam Padder and militant-turned-Army soldier Nasir Ahmed Wani. The families said, “since Youth is the future of Kashmir; we jointly seek assistance to the deprived, badly hit by present turmoil families for financial assistance for educational needs for their children.”JKAF chairman Farooq Ahmed said it is the “pointless violence” that is “hampering all progress” in the Kashmir valley. “The families of misguided youth who took up to violence are paying the price” while leaders who propagated violence “are leading lavish lives with a secure future of their children with foreign education,” he added.As a symbol of “Kashmir culture and hospitality,” Ahmed also urged locals to welcome pilgrims of the Amarnath Yatra.
A Russian fighter jet flew close to a US Navy plane operating over the Black Sea, but the manoeuver was considered safe, a Navy spokeswoman said Friday.The Russian SU-27 came within about 20 feet (six meters) of a US Navy P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine plane while the US aircraft was conducting routine operations in international airspace Tuesday, according to Captain Pamela Kunze.”The interaction lasted 65 minutes and was considered safe and professional by the P-8A’s mission commander,” she said in a statement.Distance is only one variable that is considered when defining “safe and professional,” she added.Mid-air interceptions are routine in international air space, and Russian jets frequently scramble to fly alongside US spy planes in and around the Baltic Sea and elsewhere near Russia.”Most interactions are safe and professional,” Kunze said.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders takes questions during the daily briefing at the White House in Washington, DC, on Monday. Photo: AFPCongress put the US government back in business Monday by voting to end a three-day shutdown, as President Donald Trump claimed victory in his standoff with Democrats in Washington.The House voted 266 to 150 to extend federal funding, hours after Senate Democrats dropped their opposition to the plan after winning Republican assurances of a vote on immigration in the coming weeks.Trump signed the measure into law Monday night, and government operations would essentially return to normal on Tuesday.“I know there’s great relief that this episode is coming to an end,” House Speaker Paul Ryan told colleagues. “But this is not a moment to pat ourselves on the back. Not even close.”The stalemate consumed Washington for the better part of a week, as lawmakers and the White House feuded over immigration policy and the nation’s two main political parties exchanged bitter barbs before finally reaching a deal.“I am pleased Democrats in Congress have come to their senses,” Trump said in a defiant statement, as lawmakers moved to get hundreds of thousands of federal government employees back to work.Democrats decided to end the three-day shutdown after making progress with ruling Republicans toward securing the fate of hundreds of thousands of so-called “Dreamers” brought to America as children, many of them illegally.With Democratic support, a bill keeping the government funded until February 8 easily passed the Senate, where different versions of the funding had languished for days.Word of the compromise deal struck in Washington sent US stocks surging to new highs.But the White House appeared in no mood for bipartisanship or magnanimity after a shutdown that overshadowed Trump’s first anniversary in office.Trump moved to undercut Democrats, saying he would only accept a comprehensive immigration reform—one that notably addresses his demands for a border wall with Mexico as well as the fate of the “Dreamers.”“We will make a long-term deal on immigration if, and only if, it is good for our country,” he said.Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer earlier announced his party would vote with Republicans to end the shutdown, but in a sign of the poisoned politics of Washington he pilloried Trump in the process.“The White House refused to engage in negotiations over the weekend. The great deal-making president sat on the sidelines,” Schumer said.Trump spent the weekend stewing at the White House when he had planned to be among friends and family at his home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida for his anniversary bash.And with the fundamental row on immigration and funding of Trump’s border wall unresolved, Republicans and Democrats may very well find themselves back in a similar stalemate come 9 February.High-profile holdoutsSchumer told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that he expected Republicans to make good on a pledge to address Democrats’ concerns over the Deferred Action on Child Arrivals (DACA) program that shields immigrants brought to the country as children from deportation, but expires on 5 March.There are an estimated 700,000 “Dreamers” whose fates are up in the air.“If he does not, of course, and I expect he will, he will have breached the trust of not only the Democratic senators but members of his own party as well,” Schumer said.Trump has staked his political fortunes on taking a hard line on immigrants, painting them as criminals and scroungers.Senator Tim Kaine summed up the view of the more optimistic Democrats: “We got a commitment that I feel very, very good about.”But if no progress is made on an immigration bill, Molly Reynolds of the Brookings Institution warned, “Democrats still have the ability to potentially force another shutdown over the issue.”The House is under no obligation to pass any Senate bill generated as a result of McConnell’s pledge to cooperate with Democrats—although Speaker Ryan did say his chamber needs to “move forward in good faith” on DACA and immigration.Notably, many of the Senate Democrats who voted against the funding agreement included a litany of potential 2020 presidential candidates, including Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand and Elizabeth Warren.Dealmaker on sidelinesAhead of the deal, Trump had goaded Democrats from the sidelines, accusing them of shutting down the government to win concessions on immigration, in service of “their far left base.”There have been four government shutdowns since 1990. During the last one, in October 2013, more than 800,000 government workers were put on temporary leave.Essential federal services and the military were operational on Monday.
Vivaldi tests user accounts in the browser by Martin Brinkmann on March 01, 2019 in Internet – Last Update: March 01, 2019 – 17 commentsThe next stable version of the Vivaldi web browser, created by Vivaldi Technologies AS, may feature user account management and guest mode support.Vivaldi Technologies releases snapshots of upcoming browser version regularly. New features land in snapshots builds of the web browser before they appear in Stable versions of the web browser.One of the recent snapshots of Vivaldi features support for user accounts. The feature works similarly to how Google handles the feature; this should not come as a surprise considering that the two browsers have the same codebase.Interested Internet users can download the latest snapshot from the Vivaldi blog.Vivaldi user accountsA new icon is placed next to the address and search bar in the interface. The account icon displays the active account on activation and additional option.The icon reflects the current user as you may select a custom icon for each consecutive user that you add to the browser. It is currently not possible to change the icon for the default user or any other user that you have created.Pick a name for the person, an icon from the list of available icons, and select whether to add a shortcut for that user to the desktop.The new user account is opened directly in a new browser window. A click on the icon displays all available accounts, an option to exit a session of a user, and another option to open a guest window.Guest windows are created in anonymous sessions; means, user data such as bookmarks, open tabs, or the browsing history, are not carried over from another account. A guest window always starts as a fresh session that is very similar to a first run session of the browser. Certain activity, e.g. the saving of bookmarks, is disabled during guest sessions.You may delete accounts again in Vivaldi by opening the management interface (by selecting manage people from the menu).The only options right now are to open an account or to remove one. Options to change user icons or make other changes are missing currently.Google Chrome offers nothing more than that. It is unclear if additional functionality will be added to Vivaldi’s implementation or if the browser stays on the same level as Chrome in that regard.Closing WordsUser account support is certainly a useful feature. You may use it to run different profiles for different tasks to separate them from each other, e.g. shopping, banking, research, entertainment, and social media.The guest account could be useful in situations where someone else wants to use the browser quickly, for presentation purposes, or any other scenario where you may prefer to use a blank browser profile instead of your actual profile.Now You: Do you use multiple browser profiles?SummaryArticle NameVivaldi tests user accounts in the browserDescriptionThe next stable version of the Vivaldi web browser, created by Vivaldi Technologies AS, may feature user account management and guest mode support.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
Beware, the biting rat. (Credit: Shutterstock)Back in the 1980s, S.O.S. calls after midnight were common in the field of infectious disease. And as soon as my pager started to trill, I turned on my bedside lamp and dialed—often within thirty seconds. One night, I connected to an intern I’ll call Paddy. The background din quickly spelled “E.R.”“Sorry to disturb you, Dr. P, but a woman woke with a rat on her face. Then the rat bit her lip.”First, I expelled a disgusted “yecchh,” then I asked a question. “Was she drunk and passed out when it happened?” I asked, trying to picture the scene.“Oh yeah,” came Paddy’s laconic reply. “But she’s definitely awake now—and she’s punctured. So what’s the antibiotic du jour?”I sifted some facts. “Penicillin,” I finally announced. “Or tetracycline if she’s allergic. Don’t forget a tetanus booster.”“Rabies prophylaxis?”“Nah. Unless she confused a rat with a bat. But bats have such tiny teeth you’d barely see the drill marks. I’d take the patient at her word.”And that’s where we left it in 1981, when I was a newbie specialist and early-morning chats (as opposed to Internet searches) were standard procedure. The patient got a small bottle of Amoxicillin—the following night, Paddy no doubt regaled colleagues over pints of Guinness—and, decades later, here I am still wondering about someone who narrowly dodged “rat-bite fever,” an infection usually caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis.Does this same microbe continue to menace today? To channel Paddy, who grew up near Boston’s wharves: “Oh yeah.”On the other hand, people and rodents are now communing in ways even Paddy might never have predicted.Rite-Bite Fever, a Closer LookFor starters, rats don’t just up and attack. Which is not to say that infants, bed-bound seniors, and other defenseless people aren’t at risk for bites. Blame it on the siren call of food. In other words, many attacks begin when a venturesome Rattus norwegicus or Rattus rattus sniffs a tempting morsel or residue, be it ever so slight, on the face of helpless Homo sapiens.Now picture the diverse microbiota of rat-mouths, including wavy, beaded bacilli first described in 1914. Initially named Streptothrix muris ratti, two years later, the same bacteria grew from the blood of a laboratory rat handler who developed fever, rash, and arthritis. In a romantic nod to their resemblance to jewelry, the bugs would now be called Streptobacillus moniliformis (Greek streptos, curved or twisted + Latin bacillus, small rod; Latin monile, necklace + forma, appearance).Streptobacillus moniliformis (Credit: J. Clin. Microbiol. September 2012 vol. 50 no. 9 3122-3124)Humans can also contract rat-bite fever by consuming food or drink fouled with rodent waste. This syndrome originally surfaced in 1926, when residents of Haverhill, Massachusetts drank unwholesome milk and suffered soaring temps, aching joints, and skin lesions ranging from flat, red spots to papules, pustules, and blisters—the same telltale features earlier linked to bites.As for dire consequences, consider this: Before penicillin and other antibiotics came of age in the 1940s and 1950s, rat-bite fever killed 10 to 15 per cent of its victims, inflicting special woe on people who had previously suffered rheumatic fever followed by cardiac damage. Once the beady bugs adhered to their scarred heart valves and formed rough, bacterial plaque, they were well and truly doomed.Today, rather than watching and waiting, I prefer preemptive antibiotics for patients bitten by rats—which is exactly what Paddy cottoned years ago. The same strategy also applies to people nipped by mice, guinea pigs, or gerbils.Bumpy in BeantownIn 2006, a medical photo quiz in Clinical Infectious Diseases described a 26-year-old resident of Boston with classic features of rat-bite fever, including fever, chills, and bumpy, red blisters. To be exact, the latter were “erythematous to dusky purple papules of 1-2 mm in diameter” which crusted and healed only to recur where they had previously erupted. This denizen of Beantown hadn’t passed out from the drink, however. Her risk factor was a weird stable of pets including a python, rats, ferrets, and tarantulas.Although she couldn’t recall a bite, the animal-lover cleaned her pets’ cages, potentially exposing her to tainted excreta. In a touching display of “the human-animal bond,” she also let her rats lick her teeth.Er, right.Naturally, it was Streptobacillus moniliformis, which eventually grew from the patient’s blood—a good reminder that an oddball dating from World War I continues to threaten today. Other revelatory facts?Ten to 100 percent of lab rats and 50 to 100 percent of wild rats carry S. moniliformis in their nose and mouth.S. moniliformis can also lurk in rodent urine.Of Americans’ current toll of two million animal bites per year, 1 percent are inflicted by rats.Fast forward to 2017. From an article in the New York Times entitled “From the Subways to the Sofa: Pet Rats,” I learn that Etsy sells hammocks, sweaters, and comical costumes for rats (a slice of pepperoni pizza is especially popular). An accompanying photo reveals a charming, twig-thin blonde canoodling with an Upper West Side rogue named “Nibbler.”“I’ve definitely turned into a crazy rat lady,” she is quoted as saying, “but I’m totally O.K. with that.”Crazy was the word that stuck in my brain. Are people getting crazier? I wondered, or are some of us just dinosaurs for still loving dogs?Bottom line: it seems that rat-bite fever will continue to endanger humans for the foreseeable future.
Hawaii’s destination carrier curates a preeminent premium leisure experienceHawaii’s destination carrier curates a preeminent premium leisure experienceHawaiian Airlines, Hawaii’s largest and longest serving carrier, today revealed a distinctive cabin design for its new A321neo fleet arriving later this year. Signature features of the interior concept and enhanced service evoke the natural splendor of Hawai‘i through color and form, bringing the outdoors in and extending “island time” from the moment a guest steps onboard.“We are a unique destination carrier that caters to the needs of guests traveling to, from and between the beautiful islands of Hawai‘i,” said Avi Mannis, the airline’s senior vice president of marketing. “With an 88-year legacy of authentic Hawaiian hospitality, we are rooted in a sense of place and culture that guides the sensory design elements across our fleet. Together with JPA Design, we have created an emotionally satisfying, aesthetically rich inflight experience that will transform guests in every cabin of our A321neo aircraft.”Mannis joined Tim Manson, design director of UK–based global transport and hospitality design firm JPA Design, in making the joint design announcement on Monday at the 6th annual Passenger Experience Conference in Hamburg, Germany. They spoke at a session titled “Rethinking the Passenger’s Journey,” addressing the configuration of products, systems and processes that enable airlines to create the most comfortable customer-centric journey.The medium-haul, single-aisle A321neo aircraft will usher in Hawaiian’s next growth era when they enter the carrier’s Western U.S. network. The A321neos will complement Hawaiian’s fleet of long-haul, twin-aisle aircraft used for flying between Hawai‘i and the U.S. Mainland and 11 international destinations, and its narrow-body Boeing 717 fleet flying short, interisland routes.Hawaiian’s recent B717 and A330 aircraft cabin redesigns further differentiate its premium leisure product, creating a contemporary design language of “Earth, Sea and Sky” that is interconnected throughout the fleet. The new interior of the mid-range A321neo completes the evolution of that design philosophy, with each interior carefully tailored to the emotional journeys and ergonomic needs of a variety of travelers.“Hawaiian presented JPA Design with a very unique proposition and set of creative challenges,” said Manson. “Collaborating closely with the team at Hawaiian, we crafted a cabin interior that draws inspiration from Hawaii’s rich past and contemporary present. Symbolism from Hawaii’s story is woven throughout the cabin interiors, subtly immersing guests in an environment that brings an elevated authentic premium leisure experience.”Guests will enjoy the choice of three cabin products, with intuitive and comfortable seating provided by B/E Aerospace. The Premium Cabin will be luxuriously appointed with leather recliners, thoughtful design details and a custom lighting fixture incorporating Hawaiian’s signature ‘wave’ motif. The 45 Extra Comfort premium economy seats will offer five more inches of legroom, priority boarding and other perks. Seats in all cabins will be equipped with complimentary high-power USB outlets for device charging, while guests in the Premium Cabin and Extra Comfort seats will enjoy access to an additional AC power outlet. Pivoting overhead bins maximize the amount of space available for carry-on luggage.Textiles and other materials throughout the cabin pay homage to traditional Hawaiian crafts, from bark cloth (kapa) to fishing nets. Guests will discover many details as they experience the cabin, from Hawaiian language used in signage, to unexpected textures, to custom floor and wall laminates in each lavatory. The full LED mood-lighting system has been programmed to evoke Hawaii’s unmatched sunrises and sunsets, enhancing the guest’s mood at each stage along their journey.“With each cabin, we try to integrate a sense of identity and place, while remaining fresh and modern in our design language,” said Mannis. “In that sense the A321neo has provided a superb canvas on which to project a sense of modern Hawai’i.”New to Hawaiian’s guest experience, the A321neo will feature wireless streaming inflight entertainment. Guests will be able to download an application on their personal devices before they board to enjoy a wide selection of complimentary movies, TV shows, and Hawai‘i content available exclusively through the airline’s Hawaiian Skies channel. Holders for personal hand-held devices and tablets will be integrated into the tray tables of the Premium Cabin as well as the first row of Extra Comfort, and built into the backrest of all other seats in the aircraft.The core of the A321neo experience will remain Hawaiian’s award-winning service. The cabin has been designed to enhance the carrier’s signature onboard hospitality program, Mea Ho‘okipa (translation: I am host). All guests are treated to island-inspired complimentary meals and made-in-Hawai‘i snacks to go along with the airline’s engaging presentation of the islands’ culture, people and Aloha Spirit throughout the flight.Hawaiian expects to take delivery of 18 new A321neo aircraft between the fourth quarter of 2017 and 2020. Considered the most fuel-efficient aircraft of its type, the plane will seat 189 passengers with 16 First Class, 45 Extra Comfort and 128 Economy class seats. Sales for flights served by the new aircraft and the first dedicated routes will be announced later this year.For a virtual tour of Hawaiian’s new A321neo design, please visit About Hawaiian AirlinesHawaiian®, the world’s most punctual airline as reported by OAG, has led all U.S. carriers in on-time performance for each of the past 13 years (2004-2016) as reported by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
