The lounge is operated by IASS – a Japanese operator of credit card lounges – and is accessible to Priority Pass members, as well as holders of selected Japanese credit cards. The (non-)quality of the lounge is similar to the IASS lounge at Tokyo Narita – and if you are a Priority Pass member, I definitely recommend the Hawaiian Airlines Plumeria Lounge instead.
The IASS Hawaii Lounge can be found in the main terminal of Honolulu airport. More specifically, the entrance to the lounge is located in the “Chinese Cultural Garden.”
The lounge itself is quite small – it is made up of a single room filled with (mostly) rattan furniture. At the time of my visit it was fairly crowded.
The IASS Hawaii Lounge doesn’t offer much more than the rattan seating, some (Japanese) reading materials, and a quite empty “buffet” counter.
Food & Drinks Selection
As expected, no food – not even light snacks, were available in the lounge.
In terms of drinks, sodas and juices, and coffee and tea were available.
IASS Hawaii Lounge Honolulu Summary
As you can see above, it’s really difficult to justify a visit to the IASS Hawaii Lounge. Personally, if IASS Hawaii Lounge was the only one I had access to, I would rather relax in the garden outside it instead.
