Cons: "No seat-back entertainment on a long flight is not ok. If there was warning about that during the booking process, it was too subtle and I missed it. It was an unpleasant surprise.

Pros: "Over all Alaskan airlines does a great job."
Cons: "The boarding process was very sloppy. The boarding person made very little to no announcements regarding boarding procedures. He then made everyone who had lined up in general boarding line exit the line and then finally turned on the sign that said preferred boarding. Then the same thing happened again. He could have saved all of us and including himself lots of frustration if he had just made an announcement regarding the boarding process with directions when he was about to start boarding.

Pros: "No line to check out bags, hassle free to board, easy to find out seats, friendly staff. LOVE the USB charger in the seats and the complimentary “rum punch”!"

Pros: "Staff service was awesome!"

Cons: "Every other flight I have been on does not make you pay for entertainment, headphones, or blankets. I will not fly Hawaiian again."

Cons: "No vegetarian food and also the flight was late by almost 3 hrs so all our plans in honolulu on that was ruined."
Cons: "We purchased tickets to Maui months in advance. We chose our seats. The morning before our flight we printed boarding passes and paid for check bags. That night, approximately 12 hours before take off I received a notice from Google stating the flight hand been cancelled. To this day I have never received any communication from the airline stating the flight was cancelled. I called Hawaiian and asked about the cancellation. After waiting for the customer service person to find out what the status was, she simply said there was scheduling issues. The best she could offer was a flight the next day. We lost a whole day of our vacation and lost a significant mount of money. Hawaiian offered no compensation and did not seem at all apologetic for canceling an entire flight at the last minute for "scheduling issues." We will do our best never to fly Hawaiian again. They clearly do not value their customers."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful. Provided great service"
Pros: "All the crew members are incredibly kind and helpful. They clearly havea plan and execute it well. The small amenitites likes breakfast, snacks and rum punch male the start of a vacation fun. Even the regular economy seats have plenty of riom compared to other domestic airlines. I'm usually a Virgin Airlines person but Inwas pleasantly surprised that 5 hours went by to fast and flawlessly."

Pros: "food was free direct flight, smooth ride"
Cons: "1) quality of food below average 2) need to charge for blankets, pillows and movies- in comparing with delta, I'd prefer to have free blankets, pillows, and movies than free food 3) seats are definitely not as comfortable as delta flights (these new planes or airbuses are actually worse than the old planes, very disappointed at the quality of seats/cushions) 4) customer service check in agent at LAX was not helpful and also the phone customer service representatives (spoke to 2 different employees who were based out of the Philippines) are not helpful as I had a seat already printed and marked on my itinerary when purchasing my ticket, but when I checked in I was told that I would need to pay $80 for the seats that were originally marked"

In addition they require information I didn't have access to without getting on the Internet which of course I didn't have - very frustrating."

Pros: "Great customer service. We brought our 1 year old and was treated with so much care. Made it so easy for us to travel"
Pros: "Supporting local airlines."
Cons: "Although "complimentary" meal, it does not cater to anyone with dietary restrictions/allergies. Only the in-flight snack was labeled with ingredients. I use quotes, because many people are willing to pay extra to fly Hawaiian Airlines, due to their "complimentary" meal. Flight attendants were less accommodating than I remember. They asked me to perform simple tasks that they usually have done as hosts. (I wouldn't have bothered to ask them for anything had I known they were going to give me instructions on how to go about helping myself)."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff; smooth flight, served a meal!!! Great movie selections"
Cons: "Tight seats."
Cons: "The tickets I got thru kayak lost the seat reservation. My family sat away from me for both flights. The tickets I purchased directly worked out fine. Won't be using kayak anymore."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean and spacious enough in economy. Pretty much always on time. Nothing much else impresses me anymore with Hawaiian Airlines."
Cons: "Everything is a charge. Especially don't like that they "offer souvenir blankets for sale" and they keep the cabin especially cold. All movie/TV show options required an $8 charge on a 6hour (!) flight across the Pacific Ocean. Food was awful! Living in Hawaii I often fly Hawaiian, can't remember the last time I enjoyed a meal on HA. The crew on the LAX-HNL flight was not very friendly either..."
Cons: "That we were so late, missed connection flight."

Pros: "best meal ive had in so long service was great the captain anniuncements were clear and detailed"
Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."
Pros: "I did not like nothing"
Cons: "Custom took for ever they only had 2 agents working and I Missed my fight to nyc"

Cons: "Firstly check in was a nightmare, travelling on a Virgin Australia Flight from LAX - BNE and a connecting flight BNE - PPP (Proserpine) all with Virgin Australia, and they claim they don't have the ability to tag your luggage the whole way through??? (I understand I have to collect it on arrival into another country and then take to a bag drop) but with the same airline they claim they can't do this? I travel a lot and with many other flights internationally and I can tag my bags with different airlines all the way through, but NOT WITH VIRGIN WITH THE SAME AIRLINE ALL THE WAY THROUGH? They can't do it? Then 2 hour delay on the tarmac after taxiing out from the gate at LAX, which got us in late to Brisbane. The food on this leg LAX-BNE for the vegetarian option was terrible, which was strange as on the fist flight over from BNE-LAX it was the best vegetarian food on any flight I've ever had. Strangely 6 months out from our flight I tried calling Delta to upgrade our tickets and was told they had no way of doing it as the Delta computer system isn't linked Virgin system. Then calling Virgin to upgrade I was told I can't as it is a Delta ticker. We tried again a week out from the flight and got the same response and told to try at check-in. We tried then at check in and told they have no idea how to do this as only so many seats are allocated to Delta tickets and they can't access the Delta system?? So very frustrating and we could never upgrade?"

Pros: "everything ran like clockwork"
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Pros: "We flew safely!"
Cons: "The flight was delay. Then, my partner & I were given assigned seats separately until I requested seats together and we were given the last one at the back where you cannot recline the seat. It was very uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Staff was ind and friendly. Generous"
Cons: "Wish there was better food. It was okay."
Cons: "There is no compassion with United"
Cons: "Flight attendant had a lot of attitude. I live in Maui so I'm used to the whole "I'm local and you're not" entitled attitude some locals have, but it was completely uncalled for and unprofessional to do this to visitors. She literally asked the passengers where they were from and then launched into how she was local and it was her way or the highway. She was also really incompetent at the job overall. She gave me attitude and anyone that required her to do her job."
Cons: "2 of the flight attendants were not friendly and one was flat out rude. They handed out some form that needed to be filled out before we entered Hawaii. When I asked for a pen she said they don't hand out pens and to start asking neighbors, which didn't have any either., however when she came back around to pick the forms up and some people didn't have them filled out she reprimanded everyone and kept saying you had 5 hours to fill these out. Her communication skills were not what I expected and her lectures were not necessary."

Cons: "The gate was so far away. And the AC wasn't working in their terminal"

Pros: "The stewards were awesome. Funny kind and attentive"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth, and flight was very timely (landed early)."
Cons: "Male flight attendant was extremely rude. I was asleep when the food was being served and politely asked for a tray of food once I woke up. Fight attendant that I asked was at the time collecting trash and snapped back saying that he had to finish what he was doing first. After about 10 min the lady attendant walked by so I simply mentioned that I was waiting for my food in case he had forgotten or was busy. She asked if I had mentioned it to the man attendant and I told her that I had and that I was simply waiting. She proceeded to go to him (not sure what she told him), but he later came by and angrily handed me my tray of food and annoyingly explained that he had to finish handing the trash In order to then handle my food. I told him that I completely understood, and he AGAIN snapped back saying "oh really? Because I heard you were complaining!" And walked away. The rest of the flight he proceeded to ignore me. I had been nothing but polite to him. The lady across the isle was looking his way and the man next to me made a comment to me that I had done nothing wrong and mentioned he he noticed how rude the attendant was to me. That even if I HAD complained, he was in no place to confront a customer about it. Regardless, I hadn't even complained one bit."

Pros: "Staff was nice and chairs were comfortable"
Pros: "Getting there."
Cons: "flight crew could give a sh!t. Had to connect and came in late, made no assistance to get connecting passengers off first. Tv option sucks. Have to pay to watch anything. Couldn't even watch plane progress. Pay for that too. Only thing on is a cooking show. And yes you have to pay for food. Interesting. Food is decent though. That was a plus. All but one of the crew seemed pissed about being there. I know passengers suck. At least the guy that looked like Tim meadows from snl was nice. A 5 hour flight and they plane has no wifi (I get it) but also no charging ports??? Just gives the feeling of being held hostage for 5 hours and the only savior is your Visa. I'd hate to see how parents with kids handle it."
Pros: "Plane was on time"
