If you are departing from a hub, however, they likely wouldn't unblock them until the flight went to gate control.
That makes sense. The plane overnights on Maui, so maybe if the high-J plane sticks, I'll wake up to a pleasant surprise. No big deal if it doesn't - mid-morning flight eastbound is one of the least annoying coach rides to the mainland, IMHO.
