Business Class: In Business Class you’ll receive larger seats with more legroom and footrests, priority check in, lounge access and an expanded meal service. THE HUB Honolulu International Airport: Honolulu’s airport is a bit of a throwback to the 70’s and has not yet been transformed into the efficient, well designed airports we’re used to today. This means that walks between the gates, immigration and baggage reclaim can be long (particularly noticeable when transferring to other flights). Works have begun to improve this, but will take time and occasionally cause more hassle. However that being said, thankfully the lines are not huge and best of all, the staff and security officials are much more pleasant than their mainland American counterparts! ‘Wiki wiki buses’ and shuttles connect you to the other terminals and the city.
