Top 5 airlines serving Hawaii to Tokyo Narita
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The person who assisted me to check in didn’t even know about Global entry..."
Pros: "Complementary sake and great rice cracker snacks."
Cons: "Come around more often to collect trash."
Pros: "Standard JAL. No hassles, nice, clean, friendly. Makes Hawaiian airlines look so Bad!"
Pros: "Everything was wonderful. However, it was a little too warm on the flight for our liking. Other than that, we had a great experience."
Pros: "The Japanese crews were excellent on board."
Cons: "I didn't like the way the personnel at the check in counter in Dallas. Hannah didn't seem too helpful. I don't know if she was new but she seemed reluctant to help me when I couldn't find my luggage tags. I told her I wanted a kid's meal for my son but she didn't process the request. He did not get a child meal."
Cons: "Airplan so old and ac not work super hot."
Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."
Pros: "The Japanese know how to service their customers, five stars all the way. The food and drinks (beer) helped too"

Pros: "First time fly with JAL, friendly flight attendants, excellent seat space, would fly with JAL again."

Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."

Pros: "the food was god. the crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Purchased tickets through Kayak on ANA with confirmation. Bumped to United after confirmation.

Cons: "Economy seat was hard and uncomfortable. Meal tray is quite small. For international flights: Not ANA's responsibility, of course: the level of Hollywood movie artistry these days is so poor. Perhaps ANA could consider selecting more movie classics and proven gems in their flight selection. More classicTV shows could help, also."
Pros: "Fantastic customer service, excellent food everything was best and clean."

Cons: "I booked my meal while booking my tickets, but still I didn't get the food. They told me that they don't have any information about my meal.. I paid so much money for tickets and they are saying they don't have meal . When I talked to ground staff about this they also said the same thing and when I asked them what about my next flight meals they said that will let me know at the the time of boarding that they can provide me with food or not. Hell it was so disgusting that you guys will tell me at the time of boarding that you are going to let me know whether you are going to give me food or not.. And they know that I am not alone I was traveling with my 5 year old son also. They are really hopeless. I am really disappointed"

Pros: "The overall flight experience was great. Excellent entertainment system with touch screens attached to the seat in front. Good selection in meals and metal utensils were provided. Airplane wasn't full giving me the feeling of space. Earphones, pillow, and blanket were provided. Flight crew were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "I like biking through kayak. I just wished they could warm u.s but too book a1 way flight to NZ because your wasting money."

Cons: "I wish the airline goes back to serving real meals for breakfasts and dinners on the longer flights like going to the islands & returning to mainland. We were expecting warm decent meals like what they use to serve in the past rather than snack type breakfast and sandwiches & chips for dinner, on coach with extended leg room. This is one of the enticing parts of flying this airline."

Pros: "Very good flight. They offered food and beverages as well as pillows and blankets. Will definitely recommend in the future."
Cons: "It was a red eye flight, the lights were on for most of it the announcements were non stop. there were so many empty seats some upgrade and some just economy blocked of by a curtain. Allow people to move and spread out in these cases it's just rude and greedy to keep these seats empty when everyone is crammed in tight through out the plane."
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was very smooth"
Pros: "options for vegetarians"
Cons: "the food, there was no vegetarian option. The first plane was very small and uncomfortable but the return was good."
Pros: "Excellent seats! Friendly flight attendant and lots of snacks plus a gift bag."
Cons: "A little bumpy"
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 crew, from pilots to attendants, was extremely professional and pleasant. The airline did an excellent job turning what could've been a nightmare situation to a minor delay. Providing snacks and dinner vouchers while we waited for a new plane was a nice touch. But too many mechanical and/or electrical issues with this airline."
Cons: "Too many mechanical and/or electrical issues. Maintenance not up to par perhaps? Flight was delayed 2.5 hrs due to computer issues on the flight to Hawaii. Then had to suffer through an emergency landing due to hydraulic failure on the flight back to New York. Was not a fun experience watching the fuel being dumped into the ocean for an hour."
Pros: "Crew and food we good luckily was on a flight that wasn't packed with riders"
Cons: "Kiosk system was poor and hard to understand then had to go way down outside to drop of bags then go back to where we were to go to security very confusing needs to be a smoother process also luggage tagging was confusing and a little different than others airlines fortunately someone helped us out"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and polite but not as attentive as normal."
Cons: "Food was not worthy of first class, the chairs were old and should recline more for a 10 hr flight if it's not going to lay flat. Not sure if legal prevents it from reclining more."
Pros: "Entertainment available."
Cons: "Seats recline into your lap. Very bad... Flight was way too hot, temperature wise, and no personal Air fans."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable the staff was rude and of zero help. the entire experience affirmed our decision to never use hawaiian airlines again."
Pros: "great movie selection well fed"
Cons: "unfriendly crew to locals but they were very friendly to the japanese passengers. we felt ignored. i called for assistant and didnt get answered for 30mins. when she came to assist she didnt even bother listening to my request and assumed i just wanted sprite. i was nauseated and i wanted sprite n crackers but she only came back with sprite after 10mins. overall in short crew member in this flight needs to have their aloha spirit n be friendly not moody!!!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "My suitcase was sent to wrong airport in Japan"
Cons: "Boarding was the usual slow line of people trying to stuff their bags in the overheads -- not much they can do to improve that I guess. Disembarking seemed to take longer than usual. Didn't open the door right away."
Pros: "Boarding was not announced per zone. Zone 1 and 2 were boarded and then 3-5 all at once creating a huge line. Rated 1 on food and entertainment as short duration of flight didn't include either of those."
Pros: "The courteous flight attendance."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but okay. At least they offered a meal which is nice on such a long flight."
Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."
Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"
Cons: "I was unable to select a seat within the 24 hour window prior to departure, other than paying an $80 upcharge for an aisle seat. On the phone the day prior to departure, I was told by the HA agent that "the airport controilled seat assignments" at that timne so she could not help me get a seat, and that the extra charge option on the website was the only choice I had. This process struck me as bizarre/dishonest. I will not be back unless I can select a seat prior to booking."
Pros: "Great service... good meal... and free wine! Yeeeew!"
Pros: "I liked that they serve meal in a short intrastate flights.Service was wonderful."
Cons: "screaming and unruly kids and their parents who think it's cute that they act so totally out of control."
Pros: "Hawaiian airlines is the best airline!"
Pros: "No food and uncomfortable flight"
Cons: "The flight with Jet blue to Los Angelos was so uncomfortable"
Pros: "My kids liked the cup of noodle served on the plane!"
Cons: "We flew on Hawaiian almost 3 weeks before from Asia to Hawaii. We were surprised that most of the movies and tv viewing were exactly the same. I wish you would have had more Korean movies and tv shows. The seats are too close together for any real comfort."
Cons: "No vegetarian meals! Why?? One flight attendant was not friendly (a Japanese national). I know not every one has a good day, but she could have been a little nicer to the passengers. Thank you."
Cons: "3 hour delay meant no train was given a voucher that didn't cover the fare I would have plane leave Hawaii earlier so 300people are left to sleep in the terminal until train runs again"
Pros: "Our area had a small child who had just come off a flight from Australia to Hawaii and was screeching (not screaming). The attendant was able to help the mom with her and was very understanding and patient. Her compassion helped the rest of the passengers deal with the deafening noise."
Cons: "Mediocre food. Overcooked chicken and veggies. The usual."
Pros: "Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Checking in for flight was not very good. Counter help was not well informed/trained."
Pros: "On the Honolulu to Manila flight the crew were attentive and pleasant. I was comfortable and had TV to pass some of the hours on board. On the Manila to Singapore, there was no TV and the crew were less pleasant."
Cons: "The young crew on the Manila to Singapore flight could have seen the journey as more of an opportunity to actually do their job rather than a chance to sit at the back chatting. When I approached one for a hot water bottle as it was freezing, she screwed up her face at my request and turned and spoke to her colleague in a language I couldn't understand making me feel uncomfortable. One of the worst things though was the food. Throughout the whole flight from Oahu to Singapore, there were no vegetarian options (even the mid flight sandwich had ham and cheese). Further, you were served a hot meal almost within an hour of being in the air, then had to wait about six hours for the snack and then another hot meal was served within three hours of that at a very rushed pace making the experience very unenjoyable. This happened on the way to oahu also so it is something that they practice regularly. Terminal 2 at Manila is also terrible if you have a long layover!"
Pros: "A great airline! From flight attendants, to meals , on time departure and even an early arrival , very happy with my first experience with them"
Cons: "Was perfect!"
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment, low cost, service okay"

Cons: "Flight to BKK better seats"
Pros: "The lay flat bed was amazing and I like the privacy of the seats; this Philippines Airline business class is enjoyable!!"
Cons: "Don’t ask the stewardess for recommendations on what dishes to eat for meals; their taste is quite different from yours!! My stewardess recommended a pork dish that she said was tasty, but I found it dry and chewy!! But that’s Filipino taste!!"
Cons: "The extra bag fee is insanely high, $175."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive, movie and tv options were great."
Cons: "I appreciated that I was given a gluten free meal but one side was hot and the other side was slightly cold still. I am not sure how that could be possible, but it was my experience on that flight."
Cons: "I am Filipino and would really love to support this airline, but I can’t help it; the airline really needs to get it together. This is the second and the last time I’ll be flying with this airline internationally."

Pros: "I was in a window seat for this flight with no one in between me and the man in the aisle. It was nice to have some space to spread out in."
Cons: "I am about 6 feet tall and the leg room was terrible. I was thankful that the person in front of me did not recline, other side their head would have been in my face."
Cons: "Broken entertainment acreens. Mine was broken on the way over and on the way back I had a another broken one , they moved me and that one was broken too."

At this point while writing this review, im not finish unpacking and will continue to check next day to make sure im not missing anything else."
Pros: "the people"
Cons: "flight was delayed But what else is new with PI. AIR. My husband has flown many times with pi air and he says you care about your bottom line only. it takes money out of our pockets every time we are delayed and or our luggage is lost. Now go and do the right thing."
Pros: "Service was even better on the second leg of the trip and the leg room and seat were very comfortable."
Cons: "More new release movies would have been good."
Pros: "The flight was on time, actually even earlier arrival. I enjoyed watching the movies for free!"
Cons: "One of my checked-in luggages, upon retrieval at the baggage claim area, did not have its luggage cover and worse, it was not locked!!! When i went to the PAL baggage assistance desk, we found out that it was inspected by TSA. So disappointing that TSA did not lock my luggage."

And they refused to let me use a 'foot locker' piece of luggage that has been accepted by MANY different airlines and has flown all over the world many times except on this flight and this company. They made me buy a $10 box and transfer everything into it. Then I tossed my foot locker piece of luggage in the trash bin. They were very uncooperative and petty."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Transit at Manila was terrible. Terrible crowded airport with poor signage. Very confusing."
Pros: "I flew PAL 2 years ago and was impressed on this flight home. An awesome added feature that blew me and my 10 year old daughter away was the entertainment! My daughter is afraid of flying. But as soon as we boarded and saw this feature, she completely forgot about her fear. She was so pre-occupied during entire flight to Manila that I was able to relax and enjoy the trip myself. There was a great selection of movies available that almost made me wish the flight was longer so I could watch more! The USB charging option was also a neat feature to have. I could easily charge our phones throughout the flight. I was also impressed with how well staffed the crew was. There was always a crew member going up and down the aisle with water and offering assistance in any way possible. Overall I am happy with the flight. PAL has made the trip home easier, more pleasurable and most importantly closer than ever before. Thank you PAL!"
Cons: "It's always difficult to sleep on airlines especially on long flights. I hope one day the seats are much more comfortable and roomier to have some extent ended leg room and better reclining capability."
Cons: "Super delayed flight was delayed about 4hours, but is understandable due to storms."
Pros: "The boarding was on time and it was a smooth landing."
Pros: "the airline crew were very accommodating to get the family seated together when everybody were boarded."
Pros: "The overall price of the airline tickets."
Cons: "We flew Philippine Airlines 4x in 9 days; 3 of the flights were delayed by two or more hours. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "2.5 hour check in than 3+ hour delay to take off (I flew 4 flights in one week with them, all 3+ hour delay) in flight entertainment only on app you had to download prior to departure. Small seats, airbus 330 with 3-3-3 configuration. Food was awful. Avoid this airline, any perceived thought of saving time with direct flights lost with take off delays. In Manilla all their flights were severely delayed. In country this is a running joke."
Pros: "I got to the airport at 4:45 am (who urs and 15 min before scheduled departure). The airport employees couldn't find my flight. They said the 1st ANA flight is not till 9:30 am. Then after 30-40 min of confusion, searching, etc, they sent me to another terminal which was 40 min away! Where they couldn't find my flight either at first. Then they finally came back and said that per their schedule, the first flight out is on ANA is at 6:45, not 7. And the reason why they couldn't find it is because it was only code share ANA but operated by Philippines airlines. As a result I missed my flight, missed my work and had to deal with co sequences. Unacceptable"
Pros: "Very friendly, professional staff. Far superior service to US-based airlines."
Cons: "Connecting flight was delayed 1.5 hours which became 2.5 hours without notice. Had to run through airport to catch flight back to LAX which almost did not happen. Luggage did not make it despite prior assurances. Luggage was finally delivered more than 24 hours later. Employees were without information and only apologetic after much protest. No compensation offered. Writing formal complaint."
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and just barely fit into my seat. Two inches taller and I wouldn't have fit at all. I know they're marketed towards a primarily Asian audience, and the plane was totally full, but don't expect to be comfortable if you're bigger than 6'."
Pros: "Overall flight and crew service were excellent"
Cons: "I wasn't able to enjoy the entertainment due to poor wifi connection"
Pros: "Ice cream"
Cons: "No monitor"
Pros: "Food quality ,presentation and taste has improved a lot!!"
Cons: "It's not exactly that i didn't like... It's just that there's still room for improvement with the crew service."
Pros: "Not much to speak of"
Cons: "They didn't mention the $20 airline use fee when I booked the flight"
Pros: "comfortable plane, nice crew, on time"
Pros: "HNL to MNL - cost me 10hrs of my precious time as the plane was diverted to Clatk International Airport. MNL to SING - flight was delayed for an hour. SING to MNL - status update from PAL indicated our flight was changed from 10:30 to 11:30 therefore my connecting flight to HNL as well as arrival time has also changed. VERY POOR PAL AIRPORT FACILITY FOR HAVJNG ONLY ONE WORKING RESTROOM FOR THE WHOLE TERMINAL! With flights getting delayed people are anxious and frustrated. There are no place to relaxed and calm down. Staff are everywhere standing and glaring so as the other passenger. Worst airport ever!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Few passengers during the flight."
Cons: "They served meal an hour after the take off. Then another meal an hour before landing. I was starving. Some stewardess are not friendly. One stewardess spilled water on me and she didn't even say sorry."
Pros: "Quiet, food was good Good seating organization for separating family with babies and single person. I enjoyed my flight very much."
Cons: "Budget air because knee space is very tight."
Pros: "Service by the ANA crew was excellent"
Cons: "Except for this one male crew, the Asian women were mean/rude. I always try to fly with ANA or JAL to Hawaii and I thought my flight back was also ANA, but it was UA. Food and crew are ALWAYS better with ANA and JAL I wonder if UA crew have ever flown with ANA or JAL..."
Pros: "Service all crew excellent"
Cons: "Boarding tome"
Cons: "It was united airlines not ana airlines"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats for a very long flight."
Pros: "Lots of good movies to watch; inflight meal was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line; couldn't get a seat at airport check in and had to get assigned at the gate. Understand that the flight was fully booked but still was a little uncomfortable as I couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "ANA: Flight attendents very nice"
Cons: "ANA: Seat was uncomfortable for a seven hour flight....Could not totally recline ANA: Food was very basic--not a business class meal"
Pros: "Upgrade and lay flat seats."
Pros: "Great flight and crew"
Pros: "It is like going to the dentist, long, boring, uneventful. That is good. Eventful flights are scary"
Cons: "Couldn't select my seats ahead of time."
Cons: "I thought it was ANA but it was United."
Pros: "I got upgraded from Economy to Economy Plus without being charged a dime more. And the difference between the two classes is very noticeable! The Economy Plus seats may have an extra 3" per side and it's awesome! Plus, United partnered up with ANA for my first leg to Manila and that plane was spectacular, as was the top-notch crew!"
Pros: "The services"
Pros: "great service from flight attendant Angela and Asian crew."
Pros: "Boa 're ding good"
Cons: "Lights on in plane all time american keeps lights dim so people rest"
Cons: "Too crowded."
Pros: "Hostesses came around often"
Cons: "I don't know if I can ding ANA though I paid for a ANA flight and got an entirely United flight. The media was rather old and the screen looked like it hadn't been updated since they got a touch screen, which didn't work all that well. The food was terrible. Only beer and wine was complementary."
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "They were nice. Speak different languages to cover travelers all over the world. But food wasn't that great."
Pros: "Flight was only about 25% full so we have lots of room to stretch out. Appreciated the vegetarian option for the meal. It was tasty."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "There was a nice selection of entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was not comfortable at all for an International flight. United should invest in bigger planes for flights over 6 hours. I could hardly sleep since the seats were so uncomfortable. Further, I was unable to get up and move around as much as I had on other international flights. There was no room on this plane to walk around and stretch. The food was mediocre. Quantas, Air China and Japan Airlines have much better meals."
Pros: "Despite the lack of entertainment options, the ability to upgrade to economy plus made my flight comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment on board, and you need a plugin installed on your mobile device to make their streaming service work, which I didn't have."
Pros: "No wifi, so no entertainment. But we did get 2 packets of snacks!"
Pros: "Not much ~ no movies, no rental video device ~ nothing"
Pros: "The flight was great and crew was awesome!"
Cons: "There was no working wifi, which was a bit of a bummer. But certainly not the end of the world!"
Cons: "I coudnt make an on line checked in, and i called i asked for aisle seats the gurl said yes and its checked in but when i recieved the boarding pass it was middle seat and the worst seat ever at the emergency seat, it was really small the food was terrible service was so bad ! No more united airlines for long flights."
Pros: "Quick boarding/deplaning and super friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "The gate at the Chicago airport was well designed. There was a line for each boarding group, and you could line up early. This is particularly effective for some Asian flights, which can sometimes be chaotic with many different nationalities all lining up."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times due to no pilot"
Pros: "The crew were polite and helped to assist the passengers who has the same seats."
Cons: "The fact that I had to download an app for onboard entertainment prior o my flight is farcical."
Cons: "One of the fight attendants answered no to moving to an empty seat saying it was an Economy Plus seat but in less than 3 minutes another passenger freely occupied that seat. Really?"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."
Cons: "$660 in baggage fees for a military traveller who signed up with a U.S. Flag carrier. The whole purpose of choosing United was their baggage limits, instead its just a code-shared flight with ANA as the operator and I end up paying loads to bring home equipment. Will use a budget airline that is more upfront with their fees next time."
Pros: "Overall, the plane seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little disorganized, but being in group 5, it didn't really affect me too much. The crew on board did their job, but they could check on the passengers a little bit more and possibly pass out water or refills to drinks."
Pros: "Good movie selection, easy and unremarkable flight. Great way to travel!"
Cons: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Cons: "No entertainment at all?"
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wasn't the friendliest, a bit of a "humph" attitude..."
Pros: "The crew was doing their work well."
Cons: "At the boarding gate over 30 people were in line to get a seat number. I thought I had successfully selected my aisle seat online but was arbitrarily given a middle seat. I tend to use the washroom often. I had to climb over a sleeping passenger many times, without waking him up. One gentleman had some serious problems there but it was clear he was not getting any resolution. he was obviously very very frustrated. Syrupy sweet noodles?"
Pros: "Nah, sorry I don't have any special for the flight!"
Cons: "The United flight so far was a terrible experience for me. the food is so salty and so little!! I am a person who love to eat so much, but the food (noodle) was very bad, I didn't finish it. The ice-cream at first I'm so excited and the taste very good! However, it been already melted so... I'm so disappointing. There is no entertainment on plane... I'm so boring"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses had a terrible attitude. She was rude to people and rolling her eyes at them. She also seemed to be rude to her fellow co workers."
Cons: "Did not have enough good snacks"
Pros: "11 hour delay announced iteratively in two hour increments. Worst flying experience to date. I may no longer fly united as a result."
Cons: "The 11 hour delay preceding my 14 hour flight."
Cons: "Ana flight attendants are the best!!! Excellent service cheeers"
Cons: "Everything was horrible. The fried noodles that they served was too soggy. The crew was understaffed but it won't justified their bad service. I called twice and noone came to helped. They had a young Asian male flight attendant that was flirting with other 2 guy passengers. But when other passengers approached him he wasn't very nice at all, he had this unpleased face all the time, It was hot and we couldn't connect to the internet. It was just horrible. Sucks paying so much for a very bad service."
Pros: "About as comfortable as a trans-pacific flight gets in economy class. Plenty of leg room, great entertainment choices, surprisingly good food - and plenty of it, by the time breakfast came around I was actually too full to eat it!"
Pros: "We arrived, and were on time."
Cons: "The following points would be totally ok for a 50 Minute business flight, but not to a 5.5h flight to Hawaii. - Luggage costs extra $25 per direction. This amounts to additional 10% of the total costs. Does anyone not take checked luggage to Hawaii? - The lunch was a savory snack. Really, because a sandwich is too expensive? - Entertainment needs to be purchased extra. Use your existing Directv subscription? Of course not. - Power socket underneath the seat - good idea. One that actually works? Oh wait."
