I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time.

I loved that the on demand movies were free! The time went by so fast!

I didn't like that it said Alaska Airlines but it was really American so I ran 4 terminals and had to go through agricultural inspection twice. The guy at the counter didn't want me to check in my bag because it was 58 mins before my flight. The lady at the station really helped me and let me check my bag.

I missed my flight because on the kayak app it said my flight left at 8:20 am and even said it was on time. When I got there it left at 7:20 instead and so I missed it.. You need to make sure it says the correct time on your app.. I ended up catching another flight to Seattle and spent the night in the airport and got to salt lake a day later. My family is out of state and it screwed all of our schedules up.

i arrived at the airport 2.5 hrs before my flight because i’d been unable to check in online. the alaska counter was closed and i waited for 45 minutes until they opened only to be told that i was flying on their sister airline, virgin. i hustled my luggage over to the new airline, and then wasn’t assigned a seat until the first two groups had already been allowed to board the plane. it was very -needlessly- stressful. no blankets offered for the red eye. i’d been on 8 flights in 5 weeks and this leg of the journey was the most disappointing.

In a world now where everything is an additional fee, Hawaiian Airlines was not like that. They included a full meal on each flight. They also passed out 2 different snacks and unlimited drinks. Also free rum punch for those 21 and older! It was also nice to have the flight attendant give a brief history on Hawaii and what we could see out the window. Flight attendants were very nice!

As always, more leg room, baggage included, and free blanket usage (instead of $5) would be great.

I like that you had one certified organic food option & that your bathroom had non-toxic, sustainable soap.

Please consider adding a vegan meal & more vegan snack options! There are a lot of people who are vegetarian along with people who are lactose intolerant or prefer not to consume dairy/animal products. Having vegan options that are delicious would be inclusive, as almost everyone can eat vegan food and would love to eat it if it is a delicious option. There was nothing I could purchase that was a meal so I ended up being very hungry on both flights

Loved how modern and new the plane was. Wasn't expecting to have individual entertainment screens and blankets on a domestic flight, so that was a nice surprise. Also, when flying with AA, I've become used to rude and uncaring flight attendants with disheveled hair. In all the years I've flown with AA that's become more of a rule than an exception, so I kind of expected it. So I was also pleasantly surprised by the friendly flight attendant on this flight, who smiled and was solicitous. This was an exception to your usual AA flight attendant and it must ackowledged.

I didn't like that they're now charging for movies. That being said, there was still plenty of free options. All the extra fees the airlines they come up with are very frustrating. On top of having to pay for checked bags and food, they're now charging for the in-flight entertainment.

Crying babies...but having had 5 of my own, it's forgivable. They & their parents have a right to fly also. I'm glad it was only for 2 hours, though. The rumors I've heard about American, trying to hook passengers with extra charges, with no other options, I found to be true. I was NOT happy with that at all .

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
