Anthony Riley, 27, of Raglan Road in the town was convicted of planning the assault on Adele Bellis, 24, which left her with life-changing burns on her face and head in 2014.
His co-defendant Jason Harrison, 29, of Princes Road, was jailed for four-and-a-half years for carrying out the actual attack at a bus stop on London Road South.
Riley's lawyers have been at the Court of Appeal in London arguing that Harrison made a deal with prosecutors and was never cross-examined by them during the trial at Ipswich Crown Court in 2015.
Judges agreed that Riley should have the chance to appeal against his conviction, but they said he faced an "uphill struggle" to convince them it should be overturned.Copyright: Suffolk Police

Ipswich MP Ben Gummer was on the panel which helped select Foster + Partners to design the £77m Upper Orwell Crossings Project bridge.
He said: "This is one of the most important moments for Ipswich for many decades.
"The fact that we will have what will be a globally recognised bridge of beauty will say something powerful about our town’s ambition and our place not just in our county, or our region, or our country, but in the world."
Its aim is to improve east to west connections across the River Orwell in Ipswich, and ease congestion on the Star Lane/Key Street/College Street one-way gyratory system to the north of the waterfront.Copyright: Foster + Partners
A competition run by the Royal Institute of British Architects and Suffolk County Council has selected Foster + Partners to design a new bridge for Ipswich.
Its aim is to improve east to west connections across the River Orwell and the Department of Transport has agreed to provide about £77m to help fund it.
Foster + Partners was selected from a shortlist of five architectural practices.
The company was founded by Lord Foster and has designed buildings all over the world - as well as the black glass-clad Willis Building in Ipswich town centre.

Suffolk County Council has released a video showing "indicative alignment and design" of the long-awaited third crossing proposed for Lowestoft.
However, the council issues the caveat that plans still requires a lot of work to refine exactly where it will be and how the estimated £100m construction will look.
Design advisors Design Council Cabe have been selected to help with the process.

Meanwhile Peter Aldous, Conservative MP for Waveney, says the appointment of Design Council Cabe will in no way hinder the delivery of Lowestoft's third water crossing at Lake Lothing.Copyright: BBC
He said: "This design work will not delay delivery of the third crossing as it is integral to the other necessary preparatory work is taking place.
"It is important that once Design Council Cabe have carried out their initial work, they set out their ideas, so that local people can share their views and important input on all aspects of the Third Crossing in the upcoming public consultation."
Mr Aldous is pictured showing former Prime Minister David Cameron the Lowestoft harbour area during a visit in the run-up to the 2015 General Election.
