Long Beach Airport is such a breeze!
Our flight got moved around from terminal to terminal but it was out of our hands . Got home safe
Flight crew was surly Entertainment board was ok, difficult to push buttons, very slow to respond, was frequently rebooting. Food was terrible, beverage service could be more friendly & delivery could be more frequent. At best a mediocre experience. Mike
The flight was on time and the boarding process was very smooth.
The Hawaiian airlines customer service is unmatched. From the counter to the flight crew, this is the best airline I’ve flown.
Food was meager for a long flight. Otherwise everything else was very nice.
First flight from Kauai was cancelled: notified by text when in line to check in. Able to rebook from Kauai to Honolulu after a long wait. Actual flight from Honolulu to Long Beach was bumpy but otherwise comfortable with very good service.
I couldn’t go because Maui mandated vaccines!
Cons: "Hawaiian boasts about a free meal yet provide no movie services. NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "It was comfortable and food was served, which is rare on airlines."
Cons: "Luggage lost .... and no food for vegetarians, only meat. I will be calling HA when I return from my cruise to enter a complaint."
Pros: "flight was cancelled"
Cons: "almost missed my overseas connection"
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "More comfortable seats and wifi"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly. Meals were delicious. Options for entertainment was AWESOME"
Pros: "The crew did the best with the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "This flight was extremely disorganized and Hawaiian Airlines did a terrible job of updating the situation to its guests. We had no idea our plane was 4 hours delayed because their websites never displayed that (said everything was on time). We only found out when we went to board and they informed"
Cons: "TSA and bag drop 2.5 hrs."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Crying baby....ughh."
Cons: "over 90 min late taking off"
Pros: "Timely flight, cabin was more spacious than United’s, and was kept at a comfortable temperature. Food and drink service was well timed and the meal was good!"
Cons: "It was hard to connect to the Hawaiin entertainment app. Couldn’t get to load; couldn’t use it!"
Cons: "Four hour delay..."
Pros: "Easy boarding at Sacramento, easy."
Cons: "Location of the baggage claim at Honolulu airport, other side of the airport."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the airline is very accommodating and it was clean. Will fly with Hawaiian airline again for sure."
Cons: "3 hours to check in"
Pros: "Left on time arrived a little late because weather. It was windy"
Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food was terrible and my seat didn't recline which made for a very uncomfortable long trip"
Pros: "Food and service was great! Cannot believe they served food for free!"
Cons: "They charged way too much for entertainment. Charge one price to watch any movie or want, not $8 per movie!"
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, so ended up having an entire row to ourselves. Was nice to be able to spread out."
Cons: "Crew member didn’t hear me clearly when I said I didn’t want ice in my drink, then was a little rude after he poured the drinks with ice, blaming me for not telling him before. It might have been my problem for not being more clear, but would feel better if the attendant wasn’t as rude."
Pros: "Comfortable seats that don't lean forward to much in the "upright" position. Friendly staff"
Pros: "they served a meal and they have video displays on all chairs which is nice. not enough free video options"
Cons: "no Wife options! 5 1/2 hour flight that is just horrible!"
Pros: "great basic intra-island transport"
Cons: "I wish there was an option to watch a movie. The screens were off the whole time and no tv's in the seat. I saw an ipad was an option but more i had to spend. Overall you guys are smooth and inviting as a company"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, very warm and welcoming. Best flight I've had in a long time. I'm definitely going to only fly Hawaiian air to Hawaii from now on."
Pros: "The flight staff was amazing! It is really hard to fly 15 hours in one day but each flight was filled with amazing flight attendants and pilots!"
Pros: "Only pay baggage get assign seat. You can not book your seat. Only at the airport check in."
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "I did not like having to pay for movies after I paid $80 for extra Comfort seat"
Pros: "Liked the location of gate 30 at JFK nice and quiet."
Cons: "Not much food or snacks for such a long flight Other than that it was excellent."
Pros: "For some reason the plane was swapped to the newer models so some of our group got upgraded to extra comfort since extra is given to rows 11-21 on the new planes. Row 13 was non existent anymore to make room for the lie flats so gave my in laws the extra comfort we had in row 14 and upgraded our flights to business class. Totally worth it and paid just $370 to upgrade since we got credit for the amount we paid for extra comfort ($495 - $125 credit). On a 10 hour flight it made a huge difference since we got to stretch out, nap and enjoy amazing food while being ultra comfy! I would recommend on the longer flights for sure and when you upgrade w/in 24 hours its way cheaper than the $2500+ cost that it normally would be."
Cons: "The iPads they give in Biz class are great for viewing but there was definitely less movie choices than in the main cabin. Probably only a handful of new releases versus what the main cabin had. Made a diff since i didn't want to watch Harry Potter 1-7 and it was a 4 movie long flight! Still not bad but would have loved to see all the same titles on the iPad for us to view."
Pros: "the plane was comfortable and staff was courteous"
Cons: "my bag from island air never made it Oakland"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and very helpful getting us to our connecting flight to Kona since we arrived late, due to equipment problems leaving Sacramento. A free meal was a welcome surprise."
Pros: "The cleanliness. No chaos."
Pros: "I liked that everyone was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The timing of the drinks.. could space it out a lil more to cover the whole flight. So like right after we have food and drinks could wait awhile before going around and doing more drinks for the last time of the flight."
Pros: "I could not get a seat assignment until just before I boarded the plane even though I bought my ticket months in advance. They ended up putting me at a seat next to a wall (like a window seat without a window) and it was very clausterphobic. Free meal service was nice but no vegetarian option."
Pros: "that i could get that flight that quickly + cheaply"
Cons: "tight legroom, pay tv, 1 compl wine drink, no choice in meal"
Cons: "Agent at counter didn't give me claim tag."
Pros: "Hawaiian theme, especially the safety video. Extra Comfort seats."
Cons: "On the flight from Sydney to Honolulu the pitch and width of the Extra Comfort seats was not any bigger than the coach seats. On the shorter ( :-( ) flight from Honolulu to LAX it was."
Pros: "The flight was very pleasant. Excellent customer service and the pilot did a great job of updating us with the flight schedule, tour guide swag, and the weather."
Cons: "No comment."
Pros: "The flight attendants allowed me to sit up front so I could run off the plan and make my connecting flight. If I was not in an atheletic person, I would have missed my flight."
Cons: "The delay and having to run like I wa back in high school running the mile."
Our seats were better than i had anticipated. They provided nice pillows and blankets as well as a kit with ear plugs, sleep mask and headphones which made the long haul flight better. Their food selection and service was good. I appreciated that they came through the cabin with water a few times. We were ahead of schedule which was nice!
Chairs not comfortable and wearing mask all the time was horrible
Luggage was delayed for 3 weeks; Customer Support was useless and hopeless; waited on the phone for hours to speak to an Agent in India; terrible service.
Yet another delayed American Airlines flight (the one coming over was delayed too.). I understand these things happen. My issue is that the flight crew does a lousy job of keeping passengers informed of what is going on with the delays. They wait until 15 minutes after your scheduled departure to tell you why you're still sitting at the gate. Then they tell you it will only be another 5 minutes. After 20 more minutes they decide to tell you why you haven't moved, and it should only be 5 MORE minutes. Really, American, if you don't have any idea how long the delay really might be, don't just pull numbers out of the air. People prefer honesty to BS.
Pros: "The crew was amazing the flight went well."
Cons: "I payed extra to be in premium economy and ingot put next to free upgrade and the flight was empty behind me so I had no room and I payed more just an unfair and ridiculous waste of money if I have people all around me and none behind me I shouldn’t have to pay for something if there giving it to the people so I get less riom"
Pros: "Nothing. The plane was late. The WiFi didn’t work. The plane was hot in 90 degree weather and after travelling almost 19 hours I needed a little comfort."
Cons: "At least make the WiFi better."
Cons: "Full plane with no Main Cabin Extra seats left over = painful flight for someone over 6 feet."
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"
Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."
Cons: "F/a’s are haphazard and disinterested in their customers. Below average experience."
Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go for a long haul flight. We were comfortable and able to get some sleep."
Cons: "The crew on the way to Sydney was a little more present. There was always someone milling in the galley between the business class and premium economy cabin. The crew returning came through the cabin often and were attentive if you asked for them but you had to seek them out."
Pros: "We arrived safely. We were late but arrived safely. When we had to spend the night en route, the customer service desk was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and very unhelpful Lots of mechanical delays Kept being assured we would make our connections despite leaving late. In the end we had to change our route in order to have a chance at making it to our destination that day. Even that didn’t work though; we had to spend the night in Charlotte."
Pros: "For the long flights business class is the way to go."
Pros: "The business class cabin is one of the best in the business with a great seat and onboard product. The food was good and the snack bar is great for when you need something mid-flight. American has one of the best selections of inflight entertainment with tons of movies and TV shows available for their long-haul flights."
Cons: "Boarding at Sydney International Airport was a bit of a chore. There is a pre-screening area where they check passports and boarding passes prior to reaching the gate. People are randomly selected for secondary screening. Give yourself extra time to board."
Pros: "the crew was pleasant and efficient The landing was really smooth compared to my trip in the opposite direction."
Cons: "paying extra for a small seat was really frustrating"
Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"
Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."
Pros: "Pleasant flight for the hour ride. Not bumpy at all."
Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."
Pros: "Audio was good movies can be heard and understood."
Cons: "No toillt paper,dirty not refreshed for a 15 hr flight. Back row neverhadfood choices and served cold coffee.should start at back also."
Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."
Pros: "The guy at the initial ticket counter was wonderful and took his time addressing my needs."
Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."
Pros: "It wasn't bad for an American based international flight, but also not wonderful. Crew was great. Snacks were good. The extensive entertainment options were great and enjoyed extensively."
Cons: "The vegetarian options were AWFUL. Like, really really bad. Seats seemed smaller than previous flights."
Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."
Pros: "I loved the Qantas plane that took us from LAX to Sudney. It was so quiet and smooth, and each seat in coach had very slight improvements , such as a head rest that moved, and cushions that atually felt comfortable. I think it was a new Dreamliner or something similar. AA should use these."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless."
Cons: "Food choices were horrible as was the food quality. Especially for an international flight. AA should be embarrassed that this is the level by which they operate. Entertainment systems were faulty. Many around me had to be restarted. And crew seemed tired and irritated. Willing to overlook the chairs that barely reclined but with everything else operating at a poor level, it was just the icing on the cake."
Pros: "Overall, it was a decent flight. Tucked way in the back, but no major issues."
Cons: "One flight attendant spent the majority of the flight flirting with the guy behind me. Another had a voice so loud that I could hear him through my earplugs and Bose headphones while trying to sleep on the overnight flight. I also don't like that I booked with Qantas and ended up on an American flight."
Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."
Cons: "American Airlines isn't as friendly or accommodating as other airlines or staff."
Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"
Pros: "Flight crew was fantastic. Pilot did a superb job. Whole flight was like sliding on glass."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."
Pros: "The seat was a lot better than the first leg. Also the entertainment screen worked."
Cons: "The food was okay but not that good, The male crew steward was very friendly with a couple across from me and gave each of them 8 glasses of wine, even without asking for them, He would just show up with two glasses of wine every 30 mins. All the lady's working were great and friendly."
Pros: "me and my wife, enjoyed the flight. flight crew served very very well."
Cons: "no complaint so far."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."
Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flight. I had an early morning meeting in Sydney so I couldn't fly out on the only other Qantas flight (which was 2 hours earlier than my scheduled). Spent 4 hours on hold with American and Qantas before being rebooked for the following day. Had to pay for another night's lodging and food."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"
Pros: "The entertainment system and wifi price were great."
Cons: "We prepaid to select our seats and when we went to check in our seats had been changed. No apologies or effort was made to fix the situation. They said it happens all the time. They should never charge for seat selection if they do not honor it! Total rip-off"
Pros: "Excellent flight service; good meals, comfortable, enjoyed the wine and beer as drinks and with meals."
Pros: "The people were amazing. They were the sweetest people and were so eger to learn. I have never been so neverous. We experienced a place where I need to help the ppl of the island and hopefully make the experience better. Fijians are so generous and amazing I will be back"
Pros: "Flight was safe and early then estimates timd landing"
Cons: "Meal is not enough for older people (my mom over 60y) then i think that is not enough to adults too Meal is not good tatste like before when fly with quatas only No appetizer like before too fly with quatas we can eat 6 - 8 times include snack"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and lots of leg room in the priority seat I purchased in advance"
Cons: "Very bad food"
