Airline reviews

Pros: "Hawaiian airlines always has friendly crew members and the flying experience is always positive."
Cons: "It is a short flight so it is basic but they do offer water, coffee, and juice which is nice."

Pros: "On time - got the seat I wanted - comfortable (for coach)"

Pros: "Crew was great"

Cons: "WiFi....an outlet...."

Cons: "Seating a little tight."

Pros: "Seat more comfortable than usual. The tablet holder and charging port was super useful."
Cons: "Charge for entertainment was sort of insulting."

Pros: "Convenience of electronics utilities. Crew was very courteous. On time wheels up and down."
Cons: "Seat selection did not indicate "no window" and that the wall seat is obstructed by the emergency escape door hinge mechanism. As a broad shouldered male, I had to sit pinch shouldered for 6 hrs. That 1 seat on both sides of the plane should be eliminated. We did not receive a boarding notice 24hrs in advance. There was no notice to load the Hawaiian Airlines Entertainment app before boarding. Will not load after pushback or in flight. No movies or other entertainment available. :("

Pros: "Overall everything"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Website said mobile app entertainment, not available inflight. $For movies Only meat option sandwich."

Cons: "over 90 min late taking off"

Cons: "It would be nice if you offered a few items at a zero cost."

Pros: "Hawaiian airlines was great! Very friendly and they provided a meal and snacks from San Diego."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was non stop."
Cons: "Expensive"

Pros: "if you EVER have a choice, choose HAWAIIAN AIRLINES"

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and the boarding process from the back of the plane went quickly and smoothly. Since it was an early flight it was nice that the pilots limited the overhead announcements until people were mostly awake."
Cons: "No plugs for electronics and entertainment only if the app had been down loaded ahead of time. Hesitant to use electronics for movies/music since there wasn’t a way to charge phone/ iPads."

Pros: "Nice crew. Easy trip."

Pros: "Excellent customer service by the whole crew! Complimentary Mai Tai was super good! The extra leg room seats we paid for really made us long legged people happy! Totally worth the cost!"
Cons: "the Sandwich was yuck! Soggy in the middle and super hard on the ends, plus hardly any meat on it. It would be super good if there was 2 choices of the meal, maybe a salad or a sandwich choice. Thank you!"

Pros: "Everyone was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Plane old and a bit dirty (767)"

Pros: "Turkey pastrami sandwich was the best with spinach And cheese."
Cons: "A little cold in the cabin."

Pros: "Hawaiian air always makes you feel like you are already on the islands the first moment you step on the plane. All went smooth and as always on time"
Cons: "Limited entertainment on the upgraded comfort seat program"

Pros: "Employees from porter service to off the plane was excellent, luggage came out very fast by the time I walked from flight it was at baggage claim. Nice job and thank you"
Cons: "Long line at airport"

Pros: "Airbus. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Switching from Alaskan Air to Hawaiian Air in San Diego is near impossible. I got off at 9:25am and had to run out of the airport and down to another terminal, go through security again and run to gate 51 from gate 10. It is near impossible for someone who can’t sprint. I was the last one to board. Lost my window seat and luggage didn’t make it. In Honolulu I found out luggage hasn’t made it for at least three other couples flying out of BWI with these connections. This combo should not be offered when people select flights."

Pros: "Dont' know what I did, but got my old seat back."
Cons: "na"

Pros: "Gate agent was very friendly and was able to changes seats so my parents can sit together."
Cons: "None of the entertainment was free and the provided food was not good at all."

Pros: "where I was sitting in the back"
Cons: "The leg space...a little tight"

Pros: "When you board a Hawaiian flight, your Hawaii trip has begun. In-flight magazine is impressively high quality. Meal with wine included is great. USB charging port for phone helpful."
Cons: "Could not select seat when booked flight, or was moved. Would prefer meal be poultry, not beef, since a lot of people don't eat beef. Charging for blanket and entertainment seems odd when meal included. No power outlet for laptop."

Cons: "Would like to see complementary movies on flights especially for children on flights over 2 hrs."

Pros: "On-line system"
Cons: "Need to sort out leaving bag if you've checked in on line and printed your own boarding pass. Need to sort out organization of gate boarding, too much a free-for-all. Need to get staff that seem happy to guide you into the plane not grumpy."

Pros: "We need wheelchair service and the porters were first rate. The airline was more than accommodating, offered a free lunch and you can either order new movies on demand for $7.99 each or watch unlimited TV and older movies for $7.99 (which I did). I liked the value."
Cons: "Drink prices are steep."

Pros: "I liked that we could all sit together, and it feel like we have enough room."
Cons: "On a 5+ hour flight, I was not thrilled with having to pay money for each kid to watch a movie, and then didn't feel as f I could justify spending the money on my husband and I as well, so we didn't watch anything. If each seat has a tv screen, why not have a complimentary in flight movie or two, and then charge if people want to watch something else?"

Pros: "Love the fact that they served complimentary lunch on the plane. It's a perk you don't get anymore on flights. It was a great surprise. Also, there were 4 of us traveling but one person bought her ticket later so her seat was away from us. Without our asking, by the time we got to the gate, they had moved her to sit on the same row with us. The crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "It would be nice if they offered some of the tv shows for free. I understand paying for movies but tv should be complimentary. And as with most planes, it felt cramped once the person in front of me let his seat back."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "short"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Check in very fastly"

Cons: "."

Pros: "service is excellent. Airline personnel very accommodating, very helpful especially for seniors. I'll fly with them again."

Pros: "The crew was knowledgable, professional and curtious to all on board."
Cons: "We left 45 min late."

Pros: "Boarded on time, Fight attendants positive attitude."
Cons: "Did not take off on time. Landed 50 minutes late. Food (pasta dish) tasted like reheated TV dinner with pasta stuck together in one large reheated mess. Everything is a la carte. On a flight that was over six hours, each movie was 7.99. Two movies,two people, adds up. On Alaska Air, you rent a small entertainment unit (like an iPad) for one fee and watch several movies throughout the flight."

Pros: "Compared to Alaska Air, Hawaiian was way better."

Pros: "It was short but sweet"

Pros: "The crew!"

Pros: "Flexible schedule"

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"

Pros: "Not much . The boarding process took forever and the lines through TSA took longer .. no direction to lines and I was standing for 10 min before saying something to someone and they said o there’s another line."
