Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"It would have been nice if it was Alaska Airlines, but it was United Express"
"It was a short straightforward trip. The flight boarding and inflight was flawless. Attendant Very pleasant"
"Asking the airline not to charge extra fees to the passenger just because it want a seat. Thank you!"
"6 hour flight no food. No TVs"
Cons: "Agents at the gate doing the pre clearance for Hawaii were polite, helpful and patient. Kudos to them all!!"
Pros: "Nice and easy"
Cons: "Food and drink choices could have been better"
Pros: "The crew was great and online booking put our two grandkids on our itinerary with us!"
Pros: "crew was great and the landing was like a paper airplane!!!"
Pros: "I liked getting the $75 credit due to the extreme lateness of the flight."
Cons: "The passengers seemed a bit wound up after a 3 hour delay. When it was time for the safety review, several passengers were not listening to the attendants, and one attendant shouted "Hey, you need to listen. This is important. This is not a party bus." I understand her frustration, but her behavior was really unprofessional. I've been in customer service for years, and you never let your personal frustration show. She should have brought the behavior to the attention of the flight deck for the pilot to make an announcement, etc. Southwest attendants are always cool, calm and collected. I'll bear that in mind the next time I book."
Pros: "Crew noticeably friendly and interactive."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "At ponta delgada and my bags are no where to be found"
Cons: "It was perfect"
Cons: "The crew didn’t seem like they wanted to be there. The entire crew was standoffish. It seem like asking the anything was a huge ordeal they didn’t have time for but they’d do it bugredginly."
Pros: "Straightforward boarding. Entertainment options were good. Power outlets built into seats."
Cons: "Food only available for purchase. Crew was friendly but not delightful."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for over 2 hours. No explanation except it was being towed to the gate that took over an hour. Then the pilot came on to explain it was an issue with the potable water system. They didn’t have enough breakfast sandwiches ran out before row 16."
Pros: "The only enjoyable thing about my flight was the couple sitting next to me."
Cons: "We weren’t served drinks until nearly 2 hours in. They kept making announcements saying “it’s really turbulent and not safe” but I’ve flown a lot and we barely had any turbulence the entire flight and at no point was it unsafe. When it was calm they were hanging out and taking in the back."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and the service was good."
Cons: "Stuck next to self obsessed millenial who couldn't stop taking selfies of himself and he kept rubbing against me (apparently not noticing I was there?). He had plenty of space so it was weird."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landed 20 minutes early"
Cons: "(1) The relentless loud conversations. (2) The main cabin head that REEKED like a men's urinal, with a sticky toilet seat to match. (3) The HIGHLY annoying commercial by one of the flight attendants over the LOUD speaker for an AA credit card or bonus something or other that AA seems to be doing on every single flight now. Really intrusive and, honestly, disrespectful to guests who are unfortunately a captive audience."
Pros: "The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Quality of the flight was great! I loved how comfortable and clean it was. Great to have a flight that has jacks for your chargers as well as free WiFi! Will definitely be flying again!!"
Pros: "The flight took the blink of an eye."
Cons: "I would have liked to have been woken for the food dispersal and being over 6 feet O cannot say enough about adequate leg room or lack thereof."
Cons: "What food? Alaska Airlines doesn't feed the cattle. Even the Salmon I brought back, one was semi frozen, expected that... The other was not frozen at all??? What's up with that??? Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."
Pros: "This was the most leg room I've ever seen in economy class. For someone who's tall--that's a huge plus. However, I couldn't sleep because I was so cold. I was wearing a sweater and long pants and was still freezing."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold."
Pros: "Staff/Crew were all very friendly. Plane was clean and air temperature was comfortable."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable! NO cushion = a very sore bottom, especially on an almost 6 hour flight. VERY disappointed in the entertainment. This airline expects everyone to have a device to play their downloadable entertainment or else pay to rent a device. This is horrible for such a long flight, when you happen to be one of those people who do not have a device for this. I will not fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "The flight from hell is over. I've had better jumps from a C-130. At least I didn't bounce as much and the Army never nickel and dimed us for everything."
Cons: "Boarding? Alaska Airline had a 4 hour lay over. Crew? Ask "Chad" a question and when he's done joking around and serving 6 other people, he may get to you. Comfort? You have to pay for leg room. Otherwise your knees are in the back of the seat in front of you. Food? What food? They offered trail mix. You have to buy the cheese platter. After buying the leg room upgrade. forget it. Entertainment? What entertainment? You have to buy the entertainment player. Seriously? After Alaska Airlines nickel and dimes the customer to death they landed on one set of wheels, then bounced two more times."
Pros: "I loved the comfort of my seat. It was easy boarding and getting off the flight."
Cons: "What I didn’t like was the attitude of one of the crew members. They didn’t even make an announcement before the flight took off saying you had to go to a different website to look at the free movies. So myself and the passenger sitting next to me wasn’t able to watch movies unless we paid $10 for one of their pads. They made announcements for everything else especially to tell passengers to put their seatbelts on. Ms. Carly talked the whole flight about something."
Cons: "unprofessional workers who gossip about other workers and customers, dirty plane, no free food, and no aloha spirit."
Pros: "The flight was ontime and the crew was great. Nice app onboard for watching movies...free!"
Cons: "No fault of the airline, but I am a little over weight and the flight was tight."
Pros: "I paid the extra $50 for premium seats. The extra leg room was nice, that's about it. I literally heard conversations throughout the cabin, which is no on at Alaska airlines fault, however, with premium seating we were to be given free snacks and drinks (which obviously we had paid for) but my entire row was not asked or acknowledged the entire 5 hour flight. When I stopped the attendant and let her know upon landing she said they had come through the cabin 3 times and made me feel crazy for asking. I asked my neighbors and they received the Sam treatment. The attendants literally walked right past our row without asking anyone if we were hungry or thirsty. Rude!"

Pros: "it was a very pleasant flight .everything was smooth except for a little delayed on the way back looking forward of flying with Alaska Airlines .a airlines"
Pros: "The staff were very patient with very large group traveling. The staff were very cautious of them not burning themselves with the coffee. If when having large groups of non-speaking passengers, place their group leaders separate so that they can help translate for the crew and then not have to take so long to help them out."
Cons: "Allergies to dogs and there was a dog on the plane. Couldn’t stop sneezing and had an aweful time trying to pressurize my ears from allergies. Very difficult when air circulation can’t be controlled at seat. It was freezing and no way to close vent or stop air from hitting directly onto me."
Pros: "As always, the Alaska crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Food just is what it is. Free mai tai’s at the end of the flight we’re great!"
Pros: "I alway love flying Alaska airlines. Their flights are on time and their staff is friendly and professional."
Cons: "I didn't like that you have to pay to rent a movie. It's provided through most airline carriers and I was shocked they were renting out tablets to view movies."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "It smelled bad because they kept changing a baby behind me."
Pros: "Planes same more spacious. Crew excellent. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "They did change my flight by several hours which was disappointing as I had a very short stay made shorter. No compensation not able to get me something better. Also resulted in a 5 hour layover in Seattle. Don't like paying for entertainment or food when I pay $1000 for flights. Feel cheated and buckled and dimed. Also did not like no free checked bags. Again I find all airlines that do this insulting. One bag should be included in our flight. How many people fly without any. That is one reason I often fly southwest."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Flight arrived early Not full flight, more comfortable that way Boarding moved quickly, adequate overhead space Plane exit moved quickly"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude as I switched into an empty seat following her count. Called out my move on front of other passengers with negative tone, but did not make me move, so OK overall. Without sale of open seat, the only way for Alaska to capitalize on that seat is to allow someone else to have a more positive flight experience with more personal space, so honestly she shouldn't have been rude. Tomato juice was hot from being outside, normally cool even without ice. Snack was fine, but minimal and snack boxes not available on short flight, so less stars for that. Entertainment nonexistent - film/tv access not available in flight without something in mobile device that was not explained, no plugs for charging."
Pros: "The crew was great and kept down the noise level. This is the first time I have been able to sleep on an over-night flight. We also arrived early and our luggage was ready within the 20 mins. they say."
Pros: "Rick was probably the best flight attendant I've ever encountered! Granted it was First Class, but he went absolve and beyond with our family."
Cons: "Plane was a tad run down, i.e.: cosmetically things were broken or falling apart."
Cons: "The ice falling from the AC was so annoying. It kept falling on my skin and it was jarring and uncomfortable. I won't be using Alaska airlines again until you get that resolved."
Pros: "Service, nice plan and easy ride to Honolulu."
Cons: "I don't the seating arrangement in a 737-800. Three rows on each side makes the window and middle passenger very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I liked that they have Danny devito has a mascot"
Pros: "Coconut chicken was actually pretty good"
Pros: "Flight ahead of schedule, staff pleasant, and good price."
Cons: "I pre confirmed my flight online & checked in, along with a friend. I didn't realize I had to reconfirm when I got to the airport again, since my friend already knew the gate number. I had my mobile boarding pass on my iPhone, and got to my departure gate. When it got close to boarding time, my email boarding pass disappeared! Luckily I was able to get a paper boarding pass from the boarding desk. If I had not looked previously on my phone-I would have been delayed. Learning lesson on my part. Check in at airport too!"
Pros: "Board the rear of the plane first. Why does no other Airline realize that is the logical thing to do?"
Cons: "No movies/entertainment unless you want to pay for a tablet. No Wifi for Android users."
Cons: "I was not able to use my TSA Pre Check and no agent would heklp correct the mistake"
Pros: "boarding and disembark were good for premier as was seating comfort"
Cons: "There is no substitute for a wide body aircraft"
Pros: "I loved that on the way home to Hawaii there was an option to get an app to access free movies and TV shows. It was awesome!"
Cons: "I tried going from the Entertainment link to the free chat link but it didn't work. Maybe I was at the wrong altitude or something but it would have been nice if I could switch between the two option of chatting and watching the movies and TV."
Pros: "The entertainment was practical"
Pros: "The entertainment was nice. No need to download app."
Cons: "The complimentary snack was nice. We don’t have that in the mainland coast to coast flights. Keep serving it."

Cons: "Nothing; all good"
Pros: "The seat reclined back quite a bit. That’s was nice."
Cons: "It’s a long flight, you should have offered some free entertainment, like all other airline companies."
Cons: "Food. Need more free games"
Pros: "An entirely unexceptional airline that provides zero amenities for such a long flight."
Cons: "Charge me $20 more a seat and provide a meal and in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The chairs were definitely and lacked cushion in Hawaii Airlines"
Pros: "I liked that lunch was provided."
Cons: "Although, the fact that lunch was free could've been made more clear. I ended up spending money on a snack box that I didn't need to spend."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "More comfortable seats would be nice. Also the free selection of entertainment on the screens were too limited."
Pros: "The flight was smooth considering the weather. The crew was great and attentive."
Cons: "I wish I was able to hang my wedding dress in a closet rather than folding it up and putting it in the overhead storage."
Pros: "The crew was very good and met all our needs."
Cons: "Free entertainment from LA to Honolulu."
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”!"
Cons: "Cabin could have been a degree or two warmer, it was very chilly. Seats in general cabin were very close together and we couldn’t get out of the seat when the seat was declined in front of us...we’re average sized humans and were pretty scrunched."
Pros: "Staff service was awesome!"
Cons: "Neighbor was rude"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic"
Cons: "the in flight entertainment. Screens kept turning off randomly, No wifi..."
Cons: "Every other flight I have been on does not make you pay for entertainment, headphones, or blankets. I will not fly Hawaiian again."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and they try to give you a “Hawaiian” feel. They leave you alone and serve you without being intrusive."
Cons: "No closed captions for movies or tv or videos. Seat was very uncomfortable. Seat mates screen didn’t turn off so it was bright for her the whole trip."
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: "Crew service"
Cons: "seat did not have enough cushion."
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."
Cons: "There was no entertainment that you didn't have to purchase. Even the games cost. I always bring my own entertainment so it didn't bother me much but it's not the best."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and offered a good amount of snacks and drinks throughout the flight. The plane was also nice."
Cons: "One of the planes didn’t have any screens tracking the flight."
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"
Pros: "I like that they gave a meal during the flight, especially since it was a 6 hour one. Food wasn’t too special: a hot sandwich, chips, and cookie. Good overall atmosphere. Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "When checking in, there wasn’t any seats available. Needed to wait at the gate to finally get seat assignment, after boarding already started. Traveling as a party of two, was lucky to be able to sit together for a full flight. Also, all entertainment options cost money. For other airlines, some cost money and some did not. For a long flight, I would expect free entertainment, but I might be spoiled by flights to China."
Pros: "free meal, comfort of seats"
Cons: "Not being able to pre-book my seat"
Pros: "Clean staff interior"
Cons: "Paying for entertainment"

Cons: "Entertainment options were few and outdated"
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Had to pay for basically all entertainment."
Pros: "Offered free hot meal"
Cons: "Very tight seating"
Pros: "The aircraft was very clean and comfortable, and the seats were spacious, with enough leg room. The crew was very friendly and helpful. The lavatories were placed well, so you didn't have to walk too far to get to them and they were kept clean throughout the flight Hot meal with complimentary wine was a very nice touch. Boarding process went very smoothly."
Cons: "There was NO WiFi on the plane. Not even for purchase. They kept the temperature FREEZING, and blankets were ONLY available for purchase. Prices were not listed for any of the purchase items.either on the printed menu in the magazine nor on the screen. Touch screen was very slow,"
Pros: "The plane was nice, the Hawaiian Airline videos were also good. Love the chips."
Cons: "I would prefer free entertainment over free food. The free food was not good either, but the maui sweet onion chips were deicious. Staff was nice."
Pros: "Served food, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Entertainment expensive"
Cons: "Pilot said it would be 15-20 minutes, it was over 2 hours. I paid for a movie on my flight From HNL to San Francisco but the entertainment system didn't work after I slid my card."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, clean and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "There were no free movies or television offered, even blankets and headphones came at a cost. Felt cheap. I understand a fee for a new release but EVERY movie??? Have some options for a five hour flight."
Pros: "Appreciate that Hawaiian serves meals. Always impressed with video productions and magazine quality. Safety video was new to me and well done."
Cons: "It was freezing, and while meals still are provided, there is a charge for blankets. Brrr."
Cons: "The plane was delayed 9 hours for software issues for their incom. This seemed to me something that could be fixed faster, and it greatly impacted my trip. I understand delays for weather or hardware."
Pros: "Liked the onboard service and friendliness of attendants. In-flight meal--FREE by the way!--was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding area at Gate 58 in LAX was horrible. Gate agent didn't bother to control the passengers who unfortunately always crowd the gate. The PA system was way too soft."
Pros: "Crew are friendly."
Cons: "Monitor not functioning properly. You have to push the touch screen several times before it start to work also have to press hard on the screen to make it work. Snacks limited to only one. At least give 2. Food was bland. No condiments to go with the food."
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: "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 $8 charge on a 6hour (!) flight across the Pacific Ocean. Food was awful! Living in Hawaii I often fly Hawaiian, can't remember the last time I enjoyed a meal on HA. The crew on the LAX-HNL flight was not very friendly either..."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and they did provide one complimentary meal."
Cons: "There wasn't really much space and the flight provided no entertainment. I had to pay 8$ for a entertainment package, I also had to pay to check a bag and was not informed of this until I got to the airport. Overall the price does not match the quality you are getting."
Cons: "I am 40 year resident. The Hawaiian themed safety instructions are corny as I hear them so often...An"
Pros: "Quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "Food and videos"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 30 minutes while they were playing musical chairs trying to seat a snarky couple together"
"Love the leg room and entertainment in comfort plus. Crew members were also excellent. However, serving gold fish and cookies twice on a 6hr flight is embarrassing. Delta should offer a better variety of snacks during a long flight."
"Delta is my new favorite airlines. I have no complaints. Even if they don't serve meals the snacks were ok."
Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."
Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"
Cons: "The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options."
Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Pros: "Crew attentive and helpful"
Pros: "One crew member was especially amazing"
Cons: "The rest of the crew were meh. This time there was no food. I pillows. Water leaking from the ceiling."
Pros: "crew found me an outlet for laptop"
Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."
Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"
Cons: "Everything was excellent."
Cons: "Gave confusing instructions on transfer"
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."
Pros: "Flight Attendant Precious was just as her name precious and was very impactful in my amazing journey experience."
Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."
Cons: "I was good with the flight, my friend had some allergy problems with the ac."
Pros: "In flight tracking"
Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."

Pros: "Could be among the best landings ever. I felt nothing as we touched down in Salt Lake!!!"
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."
Cons: "The gate crew in New York were not in anyway representative of what you as a company are trying to accomplish. Rude, unresponsive, and way to controlling. I watched an 80+ couple who were in first class with me try to board early because of there mobility. "You need to get in line over there on the right" was the answer...sorry to see that happen with Delta !!"
Pros: "nothing other than on time departure Ann's arrival"
Cons: "I specifically shopped carriers other than delta or united, tho my regret usa carriers have stopped offering comforts, service, quality food. Not sure how, but even though I bought virgin Australia ticket and flight, I ended up on delta. Terrible sitting, even though after I paid for tickets I was charged extra for more leg room and priority boarding, I got neither, they advertised free texts in flight, it didn't work either."
Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."

Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"
Pros: "Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover."
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline."

Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."

Cons: "Dealing with West Jet to refund a mistake on the ticket purchase."

Pros: "Nothing to speak of. Nothing exceptional from any other airline - basic"
Pros: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."
"American is always excellent! I never have problems and everyone is nice"
"Disappointed in the toilet area both flights- filthy and urine on floor everywhere both flights Boarding and texts communications excellent"
Pros: "Had an exit row seat, 17D. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and boarding was quick"
Cons: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating but all three of us passengers were very close together, Thank goodness we were all considerate of the other."
Cons: ", Thank goodness we were all considerate of the other.Just need a little more elbow room for a comfortable flight."
Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"

Cons: "INTERNET is difficult to figure out in these AA flights"
Pros: "We finally got here."
Cons: "Communication about the delay , which gate we were leaving from, having an entertainment system that worked (they said I could use my device with the app downloaded, but it did not work, I kept getting an error)."
Pros: "The seat? Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable"
Pros: "Not much crew stayed in back almost the whole 6 1/2 hr flight and seemed not to friendly"
Cons: "It would have been better if they had departed when they said they were going to after a delay. Flight was delayed first 1 hr then two more hours. The airline finally posted that it would depart a 4 PM and we didn't even start boarding until 5PM. Then they tried to rush us on so that everyone was standing on the HOT jetway for 10 min waiting to get on the plane. Plane didn't take off til 5:35 PM. Over all on this trip I had three flights that were delayed. I'll think twice before taking American Air again."
Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Half of the screens were down. No Gluten free options."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"
Cons: "It ridiculous how small the seats and aisles are. It not fun flying any more"
Pros: "All the service was good"
Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."

Pros: "Must wider seats on this aircraft"
Cons: "Inflight monitor broken"
Pros: "Friendly staff and helpful"
Cons: "Did not fly out of Ontario, I was being led to fly out of LAX since there was a delay. Ended up flying out of John Wayne Airport."
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was smooth and we had absolutely no problems"
Pros: "I like the in-flight attendants as they are courteous even though it was late night flight. I cannot complain at all."
Cons: "Gate agent refused to try to put my 9-year-old son to sit next to me. She said "It's full flight" right out of the bat. Well, even if that's the fact of the matter, at least, be kind in responding to customer's inquiry. My son was seated across the isle, same row, but in reality the row was not even straight. And as a little boy, he cannot sleep straight and he has to lean to a stranger's shoulder? Thankfully I got a nice gent who should have sat next to him who were so kind to exchange seat with me. It's all in the attitude.... hopefully my attitude is not as bad :-) But maybe the gate agent was so tired for it was the last flight from ONT, at 1 AM. Bless her heart! Thank you though for your help to get the plane leave on time.!"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "I don’t like having to pay for luggage or upgraded seats, WiFi. All money makers. Wish every airline could be like southwest."
Pros: "The staff at Ontario International was very helpful."
Cons: "No real complaint of the flight or staff. Next time I will upgrade my seating."

Cons: "This was the worst flight experience of my life I will never flyAmerican again"
Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Nice and clean and seats were comfy"
Cons: "No outlet to charge devices"
Cons: "Rude gate agents who did not inform passengers timely about the 2.5 hours delay. Post the delay after the expected departure time, etc. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"
Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."
Cons: "The plane never cooled off for the entire flight"
Pros: "Everything was great to me"
Cons: "The flight was packed"
Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"
Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."
Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."
Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"
"Great price and on time, don’t let the bad behavior customer return, restricted them for life."
Cons: "Service was surprisingly lacking for first class. No refreshments offered prior to takeoff. Dinner was mediocre, what you would get in economy. Beverage served was a glass of wine and small bottle of water and that was it for the entire flight. On an earlier flight in economy, there were two times we were served refreshments. No one bothered to collect my empty water bottle the entire flight. And this is first class ??"
Pros: "Crew was good, landing was great, entertainment was pretty good selection of movies, good seat space."
Cons: "We had to run from gate 60 To gate 89. Jetway was hot while waiting to board."
Cons: "Our BOS-SFO flight was delayed several times that would have caused us to miss our connection to HNL. Instead we were diverted to IAH where we spent the night at our expense. We are still in Houston awaiting our return to HNL. Too long a delay."
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "One syaffmemberrude butall not very friendly orhelpful no food to purchase on board which meant we had absolutely nothing to eat until landing not good when ad ertise that you can purchase on board also paid 50 dollars for checked bags but ihadconfirmed with your airline theywereinyheprice along of gimethecrewwalkedpast with coffee withoutaski gif wanted one"
Cons: "No screens in seat back; WiFi not working"
Cons: "The food was horrible for the price. We had 4 crying babies surrounding us. It was a full plain so we were told to check our carry ons but upon getting inside the plane there was still space in the overheads."
Pros: "I like the food and the movies you could watch on your phone. The United app."
Cons: "Don't have a negative feedback."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew. Short, smooth flight."
Cons: "Bit of a delay, no entertainment due to technical difficulties. No forewarning of the technical difficulties until after we were on board the flight. A gate announcement would have allowed time to find a movie on Amazon, or some other platform for the flight."
Pros: "Was offered complimentary food item and I am not sure why, perhaps my Star Alliance Gold status?"
Cons: "Boeing 777 economy seating is tighter with new seating configuration."
Cons: "Crew was not visible Seat space was very tight"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "extremely cramped, overcrowded"
Pros: "Nice to have free movies on the UA app"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 30 minutes before taking off"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, but was not notified of delay. Also, our gate was changed three times."
Cons: "Boarding was a chaos, so many passengers didn’t know which line they should follow, everything was unbearably slow"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Everything else and being really late"
Pros: "The crew was accommodating and friendly. Boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "There were no tv's on the 5+ hr flights."
Pros: "Entertainment had good choices. I was very comfortable in the chairs. The crew was overall friendly."
Cons: "Wish the entertainment came with tablets already installed instead if for purchase. Would be nice to have gluten-free options for snacks. Since my first flight was delayed and I barely made it to my connection, I had no time to grab something to eat at the airport. And being celiac, there was only a nut and fruit mix. Not enough to substitute for a meal. My biggest complaint however is with 3 hours left of the flight, i turned on the call button to request a beverage and nobody came. I waited 45 minutes, having to turn on the light 3 separate time because it automatically must have timed out. I couldn't get out of my seat due to seat belt sign. I looked back into the rear galley and 5 attendants were back there talking. Tried to get their attention. Nothing. Finally, I got up and went to get my own drinks. Being a server at hotel in waikiki, I understand that customer service is very important. And though I understand that they may have been busy and unable to answer my call, I could see that clearly was not the problem. They were just standing there and chatting. Very frustrating. Though they were friendly, they just simply weren't paying attention. I have to say in all honesty, I will not be recommending nor flying United airlines again."
Cons: "Bathroom smelled terrible after multiple passengers made a BM! Should be cleaned and deodorant spray should be available. Had to use some body spray and cologne to neutralize the smell."
Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"
Pros: "They upgraded me and it was very comfortable. Didn't know till I was going on the plane. They sat me in the exit row and I'm very capable of doing what's needed in an emergency."
Cons: "Seats weren't as roomy as the newer plane and noisier."
Cons: "I actually flew on a different flight to HNL because my flight to SFO was delayed and would have caused me to miss my connection. So I actually flew from LAX to HNL."
Pros: "came early..."
Cons: "We could not take water with us to plane, traveled with kids 8 and 10. Did not get water even though I asked few times....kids started crying to get some water.....what is with the system??"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."
Pros: "The flight was not overbooked, there were no fights and there was plenty of space. Comfortable flight!"
Cons: "They didn't have the food I wanted by the time they got to the back of the plane"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and nice!"
Cons: "Hardly any space and no type of entertainment whatsoever and NO chargers, not even a USB charge port."
Cons: "Again, 3 hour delay after airplane was boarded due to a maintenance issue that should have been discovered way before. The captain also let passengers disembark which caused even more of a delay because we had to wait for everyone to finally board again after the plane was fixed."
Cons: "5 minutes before we boarded they tried to change my seat without informing me.... luckily it popped up on my phone that my seat had changed I reserved an aisle seat when I made my reservations five days before the flight. All of a sudden they put me in the middle seat ...so I went to the counter and the person at the counter tried to tell me that I just changed to the aisle seat that I had which I actually have had for 5 days and she tried to tell me that I was lying to her I was not very pleased with United at all!!! I made it very clear and even showed her the email from 5 days ago where I had that seats all along the aisle seat that she took away from me and put me in the middle somewhere so three minutes later she told me to look at my phone and she changed me back but that's after she basically called me a liar and said I didn't know what I was talking about!! Worst US AIRLINE!!"
Pros: "Text notification of flight delays several hours in advance. Crew was exceptionally polite - I'd imagine this is a direct result of United's recent scandal. The scandal will eventually dissipate but hope the new crew attitude sticks around."
Cons: "Flight delayed twice. For a 5 1/2 hour flight only a 1/2 cup of water was offered/available. If salty snacks are the only thing being offered, 1/2 a plastic cup of water is impractical and just plain stingy."
Pros: "More leg room on this flight than previous united flight."
Cons: "Entertainment worked for 20 min on a 5 hr flight with a 1.5 hr delay."
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"
Pros: "Everyone was gracious and friendly"
Cons: "Again in this second segment of my long trip, the Wi-Fi entertainment network went down with a couple of hours left in the trip. For a long trip, having something to view is helpful in passing g the time."
Pros: "The food being offer was good"
Cons: "The experience as a whole was rather disappointing"
Pros: "Again punctual and efficient service. Very helpful crew on this flight."
Cons: "There weren't enough snacks."
Cons: "Had to buy entertainment"
Pros: "They offered complementary snacks and water at the gate when the flight was delayed by 2 hours for mechanical reasons. After such a long and tiring day, when I went to buy a drink onboard, the flight attendant didn't charge me. It was done as a courtesy for the lengthy delays. This was much appreciated and honestly made the irritation with the delays disappear. It's amazing what a little thing like that can do for a person. All the flight attendants were gracious and helpful. Overall, they made the flight good."
Cons: "I had to run to make this connecting flight due to the previous flight leaving an hour late, only to learn the flight was delayed. It was delayed 2.5 hours for maintenance."
Pros: "Overhead bin space"
Cons: "5 able-bodied pax's allowed pre-board privilege because they were traveling with a single wheelchair pax was ridiculous. No signage on seat of where to locate power charge."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 4 hrs"
Cons: "Food and entertainment is an additional cost.. Seats are too cramped."
Cons: "Over 3-hour delay. Various text messages including one that indicated the flight was leaving 5 minutes earlier; then it was delayed again!"
Pros: "The crew was good. Direct with instructions and efficient."
Cons: "On a 5+ hour flight, I should not have to pay extra for the little TV, when other carriers are offering this in-flight entertainment for free. Nickel and dime-ing customers does not bring loyalty. I'll be returning to flying almost exclusively on Delta."
Cons: "I was horribly cramped next to two passengers who used half my seat. Crew could see this and did nothing to help. There was no way to turn off the entertainment"
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The spacious seats and entertainment on the plane."
Cons: "The cost of food products on the plane. Could have been better food for the price."
Pros: "Staff and timeliness of flight."
Cons: "1) Seats barely recline beyond 90 degrees. 2) Food was unimpressive. 3) Paying for cocktails on a long haul flight is absurd. 4) Instructed to "download a ridiculous app" for entertainment. 5) finally downloaded stupid app but didn't have my laptop available as it was in checked baggage so tried to watch a bad movie on my IpHone...??? 6) Outlet to plug my power sources for mobile devices into was not functioning."
Cons: "personal entertainment connection was spotty."
Pros: "I enjoyed very little about this experience. The crew was cordial however they lose the ability to perform simple tasks by the long standing protocols and overcrowded flights. Most of the crew are as unhappy as the passengers."
Cons: "The plane hit the brakes while taking off and returned to the gate due to a warning light. We were told nothing other than we needed to wait. They said the fix took 5 minutes but our wait took 2 hours. Not efficient. They rent out tablets for on plane entertainment, unlike every other plane I've ever flown, they make you pay to keep you happy during a 5.5 hour flight. Food was horrible. The seat did not recline and they eradicate every ounce of comfort to overpack the plane. The Captian made little announcements and the one he did make upon decent, started with "please fasten your seat belts, we are 65 miles away from Honolulu but...", I was sure the "light" came back on 30k feet about the pacific and we were going down. Finally - the last announcement from the head stewardess didn't include "Aloah, thank you for flying United". Seems minor but it goes to show they don't care anymore. That's the first time I hadn't heard the welcomed message after my 20th trip to the Islands. After my return flight I vow to never fly United again."
Pros: "Great entertainment. Most of crew was very nice."
Cons: "Computer problem delay. Then someone closed the door improperly, so back to the gate. Then we needed more fuel. Then we had to wait for "paperwork". Took off 2 hours late all of which was spent sitting on the plane."
