Just checking here -- it seems that HA 35 and HA 36 for next year are going to be A330's with lie flats -- at least that is what the HA seat chart is showing.

HA Plans for 767-300 Fleet Retirement?

Is there any sense that HA will retire their few remaining 757?

I fly the Phx-HNL route and would love to see the end of that plane one day.
