August, September, October, November, December

That’s 5.   Good to go!

Edit: the first might just qualify as suborbital. :).  So maybe 2 in December.

Previously the first flight going to Hawaii was announced as suborbital

Emphasis mine.

Wrong. The first flight was NOT announced as suborbital. The fligh was announced as “going into orbit”. In other words: the Starship is intended to reach orbital velocity. But before it can complete a single orbit, it will perform a retro burn to reenter near Hawaii.

The mere fact that a spacecraft does not complete one full revolution around the Earth, does not automatically mean that the flight is suborbital.
It all depends on the velocity the spacecraft has when it completes powered ascent. The first orbital attempt is targeting orbital velocity. Therefore, it is NOT announced as a subortibal flight.
