New ANA A380 Lounge Honolulu and A380 Seats

ANA A380 Lounge Honolulu HNL


ANA's A380 Lounge in Honolulu will be a beautiful addition to HNL, which as a primarily leisure destination isn't known for very nice airline lounges. In fact, it's fascinating that ANA will be dedicating these A380s to serve Hawaii (the first flight starts on May 24, 2019), as these will have ANA First Class and flat bed business class, a huge improvement over the JAL angled flat business class seats on JAL's Tokyo to Hawaii flights.

ANA A380 Honolulu Airport Lounge Location and Opening

The new ANA A380 Honolulu Airport Lounge will open in Spring 2019, and will be located on the 3rd floor of Terminal 2 above Gate C4. Thanks to the lounge's location, First Class, Business Class and Premium Economy passengers will be able to board their seats on the upper deck of the A380, directly from the lounge. Elite passengers who are flying Economy Class will go to the 2nd floor, directly under the lounge, to board the aircraft.

ANA A380 Honolulu Lounge Access

The ANA Lounge, unlike many international airline lounges, won't just be accessible to the airline's frequent flyers, first class and business class passengers; ANA Premium Economy passengers will also have access, although they and Business Class passengers will not be able to bring an additional guest into the lounge. Only First Class passengers, ANA elites and Star Alliance Gold elites will be able to bring in an additional guest.

ANA A380 Honolulu Lounge Amenities

The ANA Lounge will incorporate Hawaiian nature elements, including tree, sea and sky motifs. Since many Japanese travelers flying to Hawaii are families with kids, there will be a family area with a tidepool-themed design.

So far, there's no word on other amenities or food and drink, but I'd keep expectations in check as Japanese carriers aren't know for their investment in F&B for even first class lounges.

ANA A380 Seats

The ANA A380 will have First Class, Business Class and Premium Economy on the Upper Deck, and Economy on the Lower Deck.

ANA First Class

The ANA A380 flying to Hawaii will have First Class with open suites, a rarity in even international flights to Hawaii. As with other ANA First Class, the 8 open suites will be in a 1-2-1 configuration across 2 rows, and will be on the A380 Upper Deck.

ANA Business Class

The 56 ANA Business Class seats will be in a 1-2-1 configuration across 14 rows. Each seat will have direct aisle access, and alternate rows will have “honeymoon seats” with the seats next to each other in the center.

ANA Premium Economy

73 seats on the upper deck will be Premium Economy in a 2-3-2 configuration.

ANA Economy

ANA Economy on the A380 will have 383 seats in a 3-4-3 configuration, of which 60 of them in the back will be couch seats, where the leg rests fold up to create more surface area to lie down. The flight crew will provide a dedicated mattress to make the sleeping surface more comfortable, which is innovative for an Economy Class product (although these seats will cost more than regular Economy).

Other ANA A380 Features

Per ANA, all classes of service will have access to in-flight bars. And in a nod to the many children, including babies and toddlers on these flights, there will be a multi-purpose room where mothers can tend to their babies, so that they don't have to nurse them or comfort them at their seats.
