    Working on an Explorer award with American for next summer. Needing to go from Tokyo to Honolulu as a leg, but it appears that only Economy is available? Surely that's not an economy-only flight... perhaps awards just aren't released yet? Not a trip I'd prefer to make in coach.

    JL offers 3x daily NRT-HNL flights, 2 on a 767 and 1 on a 777, all have business class cabins. But it's a tough award route. Maybe not what you want, but perhaps worth monitoring KIX-HNL and NGO-HNL as well since JL flies those routes 1x daily as well.

    That could work, thanks for the advice there. Worst case I might consider cathay from PEK or HKG instead and skip Japan all together.

    AFAIK HKG and PEK arent served to HNL - you must have meant skipping HNL?
