I don't think $50 is ever worth lounge access, unless I'm in a pinch and stuck for 3 hours plus in an airport - with no way to leave (rental car) and visit a nearby city.

Yes, the system lets you book even out further than 330 days. But most of us never look at the fringes.

Agree 100%. I hate the SFO kiosks, and never use them. I walk right up to an agent. (I'm usually on the overnight, so less of a crowd).

No - just wait a few days. The OP booked at the extremes of availability (330 days out). It will fix itself in a few days.

Indeed. This false aspect of "free one-ways" by the blogs is a pet peeve of mine. It is a stopover, not a free one-way - and is region-specific. HNL is not part of the same region as LAX is.
