Hawaiian Airlines or Fiji Airways to Sydney in Business Class?

Hi All,
Any opinions which airline you would choose based on seat comfort, food and beverage?
Seems like HA now has lie flat seats that are satisfactory or better
Know little about Figi other then a few random reviews
Appreciate any input or experience
Thank You!

It is Fiji, not Figi

I'd take the Hawaiian non-stop versus the long connections on Fiji

You also have QF & JQ.
But JQ business class is more like premium economy (= ~ 2 class old USA domestic first)

For a day time flight better to take the non stop. That will be better than any perceived differences in seat comfort, food and beverage.

Appreciate the thoughts so far and typo spelling corrections :
Have QF biz on the way back from Mel on the 787 but it wasn’t available with Miles on the outbound

I have no actual experience so far; but, my partner and I are scheduled to fly PDX - HNL; HNL - AKL in Hawaiian International Business. The return will be Fiji AKL-NAN; NAN-LAX; LAX-PDX (Delta First).
The Fiji NAN-LAX will be on brand new A350s with significantly upgraded business seats (compared to Fiji A330s). Fiji's A350 will serve both Auckland and Sydney.
I anticipate Fiji's business class experience to be superior (at least in terms of hardware) to Hawaiian's.
