Hawaiian Airlines flight 43, an Airbus A321neo, suffered a tailstrike on landing on runway 04R at Honolulu-Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, Hawaii, USA.
The captain was the pilot flying, and the first officer was the pilot monitoring for the flight from San Jose International Airport (SJC), California to Honolulu International Airport (HNL), Hawaii.
The crew was vectored for the ILS approach to runway 4R at HNL. The ILS approach was uneventful with the crew achieving all of Hawaiian Airlines stabilized approach criteria at both the 1000 ft and 500 ft AGL.
The approach remained uneventful until the flare was initiated at approximately 25 feet AGL.
Winds were reported to be approximately 11 kts with gusting up to 18 kts. At this point the captain reported that he felt the aircraft had an accelerated sink rate. To arrest the sink rate, he initiated a slight increase in pitch angle. He then heard an automated audible pitch alert generated by the aircraft and then felt a firm bounce of the aircraft upon initial touchdown.
The crew initiated a go-around and had an uneventful approach and landing on runway 04R. Following the landing the crew completed an uneventful taxi and shutdown at the gate.
The tailstrike resulted in abrasion damage over an area of about 14 feet long by 2 feet wide along the aft lower fuselage. There also were several fractures to the internal cargo lining support structure and to at least one frame.

Probable Cause:

Probable Cause: The captain’s improper landing flare, which resulted in an excessive sink rate and subsequent hard landing.
