Will Mainline service to HNL, OGG & KOA end this year?

Just did my annual pilgrimage to Hawaii and enjoyed the flatbed seating in J class on the Mainline. Alas, will this be a Rouge route next year? :(

Apparently it will remain mainline. Plan is to use the new B737 Max when they arrive. AC doesn't want to switch to Rouge and then back to mainline in the interim. Heard this from Rovinescu.

I am looking at going to Hawaii in late Jan 2015 and the reservation page is showing 767 with business class fares available.

4 hours crammed in the back of a 12ft diameter tube is about all can handle! Did the 6 hour trip last year and could have used some serious meds to get me through it :smt015

I doubt they would use the 737. Are they completely giving up on cargo? It's a big money maker using the 767's for cargo.
