    I'm flying on the hnl-ewr non-stop later this year in J. I recall there were certain additional benefits for domestic flights marketed as businessfirst....will lounge access any hnl be one of them?

    Anything else noteworthy on this flight? Will the j seats be angled lie-flats?

    Thanks

    You're supposed to get access on the HNL BF-Lite routes.

    VERY unlikely that you'll have the new seats. The 76H (4 rows of BF) which are most common on the HNL routes aren't getting them at all and even the 764s will only have one or two by the end of the year.

    Thanks Seth. You say "supposed to." Should I expect a controversy at HNL?

    The current seat map shows 4 rows of F. Do the old seats mean sort of 160-degree recliners?

    I've never had problems getting in when I'm supposed to but someone on FT reported being denied at EWR the other day. I would not expect trouble at HNL.

    The old seats are lounger-style and are decent for sleeping in but not as great as the flat options. Still, pretty much the best option you've got out of the Islands on CO/UA.
