We investigate the dispersion curves of coupled waveguides in hexagonal lattices. We show that hexagonal PCW lattices have coupling coefficients that change magnitude and sign along the BZ. It is also shown that the modes of these structures no longer form odd and even modes but are superposed in a more general sense.
