Pros: "Not much to say hear. I would expect better service since they aquired virgin America"
Cons: "Crew didn't have a friendly approach to passengers they all seemed rude Not enough food on board or even drinks. I asked for water and she made it seem an inconvenience. Barely any legroom. Also the passenger that was reassigned to the seat next to me was not happy as they would not help her switch seats with anyone as she had a need for assisted care."
Pros: "Boarding was relaxed. Adequate space in the overhead compartment. L sufficient leg room. Leather seats with adjustable headrests. Courteous, warm and compassionate stewardess. Cold beer."

Pros: "The crew was really nice and professional"
Cons: "We had to make an emergency medical landing which is fine it had to be done. But then we had to wait a while for catering to come and bring us food. Most of us had already gotten off the plane to use the restrooms and get food. Then because the caterers took to long they cancelled the food order and told us they were having fingers out food vouchers. It was annoying g cause we had already gone and gotten food and spent our own money. Now everyone booked it off the plan to get food and we now waited another hour for people to come back. So altogether the plane was delayed 4 hours they could have just given us the food on the plane for free."

Cons: "No in flight wifi, no one asked me if I wanted to order food, the flight was really bumpy. Took forever to board."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Paid extra for premium seat and didn't get anything to drink theybskip our seats Not worth paying extra for nothing"
Pros: "I dispatched a guitar in a hard case. It was labeled fragile and sent to a separate compartment. The guitar was poorly treated and the case was broken all over. Very disappointing. On top of that I had requested window seat and got the middle seat. No food was served and there was no movies to watch or anything, considering this was a five hour flight"
Pros: "That I had a whole row to myself"
Cons: "The plane had to make an emergency landing in Honolulu because 2 of the 4 navigation systems were not operating correctly. We had 2 wait in Honolulu approx. 6hrs to catch a flight to Seattle. They gave me a $12 voucher for food but my dinner (only dinning in the terminal) cost me $20. Was forced to take an additional day of leave & had to make arrangements for my pets. Was only given (3) $600 vouchers for my 3 tickets."

Pros: "Very helpful and accommodating for my broken hip."
Pros: "1) Attendant crew was nice. 2) Appreciated being able to board from front and rear."
Cons: "1) Flight time delayed, so late arrival ~12am was made even later ~12:30am 2) Booked two tickets together months ago, yet we were not allowed to sit together. 3) Entertainment required the downloading of the gogo app which should have been done on the ground with wifi and/or cellular data. in the air, one window said you could (wait) and download, while another window effectively said, "better luck next time". Pre-flight email should have warned passengers to download beforehand. 4) Exiting plane only allowed from front; took forever from our next-to-last row."

Pros: "The flight offered was a direct flight. They offer preboarding for families with children under 2."
Cons: "The seats on this flight are so close together your shoulders literally touch your neighbors shoulders while sitting normally in your seat. This is unacceptable. When will airlines finally get it? People deserve to sit in their own seat without being on top of their neighbor."
Pros: "Fast flight. Friendly crew. Switched me to a sooner flight so I wouldn't have to drive home real late."
Cons: "Wasn't too much to dislike. Was a very good flight."

Pros: "The distance to Hilo."
Cons: "The boarding process."
Pros: "Need more TSA inspector and more conveyor to keep the line going to all gates."
Pros: "I liked that the flight ended."
Cons: "They undersold the flight and made us get iff the plane and wait for another. It was pretty obvious, but they claimed ‘maintenance issues’ as the reason. My guess is so that they wouldn’t have to give us anything for the inconvenience. Shady. I was looking to get a decent meal on my layover in Honolulu but instead I got a power walk workout in trying to catch my next flight. The food was pretty bad. No Baileys for my coffee? Bad Airline. Bad."

Pros: "I like to being an honolulu for a while"
Cons: "We picked seats online next to each other and got separated during check in with different seats"
Pros: "Honolulu to San Fran left on time and arrived a little early. My hip had started to hurt so they gave me assistance and arranged for assistance to meet me at my final destination. I had roughly 1 1/2 hrs between my three flights and it all flowed like butter."
Cons: "No coffee when we woke up in San Fran, but once in the terminal I used one of the excellent concession stands. Perhaps a compromise could be serving the coffee that comes in 12oz cans. Ito- En? is the brand. Simple choice- comes with or without milk.Ice coffee is better than NO coffee."
Pros: "it got me there"
Cons: "paid entertainment, very little food"

Cons: "I didn't like going to Honolulu to get to Kahului from Hilo."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful..."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Feeezing cold (the better to rent $10 blankets), not enuf leg room for a human), noisy, awful food. I remember when Hawaiian Airlines was motivated by aloha; now it's greed that drives this company. I hope I never have to take another flight."
Pros: "the assigned seat I chose"
Cons: "the cookies are too small. there was no plug to charge my phone or laptop. there was no tv in the headrest. when did they stop doing that? i've always had at least a plug to charge stuff"

Cons: "just the biscoff cookies? what happened to pretzels?"
Cons: "Pay for entertainmen"
Pros: "Hawaiian sets new low standards with rude employees, incompetence and dirty, uncomfortable planes. Truly a chicken bus in the sky."
Cons: "Your announcements are redundant slow enough I felt as if you think we're morons. You charge for movies allow them to start then promptly interrupt them for 5 minutes! You push credit cards like condominiums at a Mexican resort without the free drinks or trip. I've been living and working in the islands for years and will be avoiding your mainland flights when possible."

No seat assignment. Was put in the absolute last seat in the plane. Flight was delayed because of an electrical issue which also broke the AC until we were taxi-ing. It was hot.

Seats were narrow and uncomfortable ( business ) and there was only one toilet for both business and premier…. The one up front was blocked as it was solely for the crew …. One always had to wait in line with 3/4 people in front of you ..at minimum….. while you waited , the crew made it clear that you were in their way …. Fair enough as we had to stand partially in the galley…

Pros: "Crew was great, check in was fast. Overall great experience."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, boarding was good"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work, my tv didn’t work either"

Cons: "The food on the plain or snacks were to poor and not that tasty."
Cons: "If you can get it he people at the desk to stop making announcements while there are announcements being made over the airport PA system that would be great. Especially when the person chosen to speak has a heavy accent and it’s competing with other announcements. My over 50 ears can’t make it out."
Pros: "We got earlier than expected to our destination"
Cons: "Perhaps educate passengers on the new Delta process of boarding. Too many passengers where disorganized; the crew tried very cars to direct people"

Pros: "I called ahead to get a seat assigned. I suffer from minor claustrophobia and the lady at the call center was kind enough to seat me somewhere spacious."
Cons: "Snacks could be better. Although the biscoff cookies are excellent and the crew was on their game making sure we had our snacks. I wish that for a flight as long as NY to MIA, they would offer more of a meal."

Pros: "Always a good experience with Delta! They’re the best!"
Cons: "flight ticket very expensive."

Cons: "Sandwiched between 2 big guys 1 of which should be made to buy 2 seats!!!!!!!"
Cons: "the passenger next to me was sick and shortly after takeoff projectile vomited in the seat. The flight attendant did not seem to think that it was a big deal and took his time attending to the sick passenger and relocating me."
Pros: "So apparently I was told I was 1 min too late and the computer would not let them print a backache check. Further they were tellin me I couldn't get in my flight and have my luggage go later, but I understand because of security reasons. Finally it was 10 min til my flight left, I asked how about if I walk my bags through security check point; have TSA examine them and then they get placed in the plane like oversized carry ons normally do? Ding I struck a light bulb and they said yea why not. After a few phone calls later I was walking with my bags through TSA. It took me to think this up for Delta. A minute too late was the original response from the first agent. 1 minute! Not 10 not 5 she said the computer just got locked out. I was going to miss my flight for 1 min time restraint. The first agent didn't care and just blew me away. Thankfully the next agent tried. I had to throw away all my toiletries because TSA wouldn't let them through."
Cons: "The fact that I had to throw away all my toiletries and do the thinking for the agent. Although out of two he was the most understanding and the most helpful."

American airlines has always been great. Will definitely be using them in the future!

From the moment I walked into the airport in Chicago to the moment I was walking off the plane in Florida I had an unforgettable experience! I was traveling with my 3 month old by myself and everyone just made sure I was taken care of. I couldn’t thank them enough!

By the grace of God we were able to cram two checked bags worth of stuff into our carry ons which I still do not know how we did that, and were fine. On the flight we had a decently nice lady and a horrible male. When passing out drinks he seemed almost irritated that we had asked for water and rudely gave it to us which was room temperature. He totally skipped the lady in the row with us and got irritated when she asked for a water as well."

Cons: "The 9 hours delay and zero compensation"

They came around with snacks so many times they might as well have served a meal. They had a pretty limited selection of TV shows/movies compared to other airlines, and it played their COVID safety ads every. single. time. you started a new episode or show, even if you got disconnected partway through. I also had issues with the charger in my seat - it was loose and my phone would be charging on and off. However, it was a well-priced flight, comfortable, and staff was nice. No complaints on getting to my destination on time!

Pros: "It ended up being united not Lufthansa and they were delayed 45 minutes so they rerouted me through Munich which made me miss a free bus to my destination outside of Rome"
Cons: "More time in Chicago in case of a delay I only missed my flight by 5 minutes"
Pros: "Cabin was not cold"
Cons: "Respect passenger seat selection - we were downgraded from economy plus to economy with non reclining seats! Flight crew rude - referring to passengers as “bodies”!!! Entertainment system not working. Internet does not work on most of the flight!!"
Pros: "Flight time"
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Free snacks and tv and charging sockets"
Pros: "We did not have to wait long for our luggage."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "The transfer was not realistic, and I would have missed my flight. To cancel was more expensive than to buy a new ticket. Disgusting"
Pros: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"
Pros: "The bathroom sign that shows if it is busy without going there"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "There was three hour deley because the pliain didn't arrive on time."
Pros: "The cabin was very warm and uncomfortable for the entire flight and tarmac time. The overhead air wasn't working either so that didn't help. Other than that, the flight was great."
Cons: "Cabin temperature"
Pros: "I purchased a ticket for my 18 year old dog $ 125.00 each way to fly with me to Kalispell and back. She is so old that she can not SEE, HEAR, or BARK any longer. I understood she needed to be under the seat for take off and landing but I was told by the ticket agent and flight attendants on my first flight that she could sit on my lap during the flight. Everything was great on the way there. On the returning flight,.... the flight attendant was so RUDE to me. She saw that after we were airborne and at a steady altitude, I brought my dog "Kacey" up into my lap. She immediately raised her voice and stated the dog needed to remain on the ground. I politely explained her condition BUT she refused to listen to anything. I put my poor old dog back under the seat. After approx 20 min I could hear her patting very loud. I lifted her again and asked a different flight attendant for some water. She was very hot on the floor. Or course, the flight attendant saw my little chihuahua drinking the water and said that after she drinks a little more, she must remain under the seat. By now, my husband is getting annoyed. He tried explaining to the flight attendant the medical needs that my dog has " she's on protein shakes" which were approved their security. and how fragile she is. She can't BARK, SEE, or HEAR. Yes, we will be putting her down soon but we took her to Montana for my daughter to say her GOODBYES!! Sorry to say, but that flight attendant has turned me away from UNITED AIR LINES forever. Feel free to call me 352-804-8344. You may send this to UNITED AIRLINES too!! Thanks Karen Hope"
Cons: "Was delayed at take off and was getting claustrophobic sitting in the plane for an hour before a five hour flight."
Pros: "Flight okay"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No free food or entertainment service."
Pros: "There were no positives to this flight"
Cons: "The plane was delayed. The crew stood at the airport gate for a good hour chatting with each other completely disregarding the fact they had a plane full of people around them waiting to board. They were drinking coffee taking selfies it was ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing about this flight was good other than it arrived without falling from the sky into the Pacific Ocean. I was on the back row miserable, worst seat ever. An hour late loading. The airport crew at Kona was really good. Kona airport needs to upgrade their chairs in waiting areas they hard picnic benches. Flight crew talked all night kept people up in the back. Absolutely no ability to sleep. Worst chair and comfort ever. Barley made connection to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Take my advice skip the red eye flights and pay more money for something that lands and leaves at a reasonable hour. We had to wait an hour longer at the airport because they didn't have their crews available."
Cons: "Re- routed to arrive 36 hr later, luckily I didn't get the message of flight delay until I hear the airport at 4 am. I was rerouted by an attendant 14 hours. And was able to work the next day. My bag made it 3 days later to me because it was only booked on the 1 plane not all the way through to Tampa."
Pros: "Nice crew and ground staff. With the right credit card (United Explorer or better) boarding is a snap."
Cons: "Lack of personal space is a fact of life for air travel unless one can afford the good seats. Plus, why do I always sit behind a crying, screaming child? I know it's no fun for anyone involved and it's just part of life, but maybe next time I'll be more fortunate. Flying in economy is truly like riding in a very big Greyhound Bus! It beats driving, but not by much. I wish trains were more plentiful and affordable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not sitting by my wife."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of the entire awful experience. The pilots let people tour the cockpit and the stewards were very accommodating considering their rules and restrictions. With so many delays, we were able to disembark the plane and come and go as we needed till we were able to finally board for takeoff."
Cons: "We all received updates every thirty minutes with a new departure time and each time we were supposed to depart, there was another delay. The first delay was caused by a seat cushion floating device not being on the plane (hour delay right there) and then for the next three and a half hours, we all were constantly being delayed due to rain. The rain was not their fault but had that cushion been properly stocked on the plane, we would have missed the storm and been on our way. A two-hour flight became an eight-hour hell. Not to mention, the plane itself smelled like a seedy bar bathroom, I had to tuck my legs underneath myself because there was absolutely no legroom, and my row mate was a belligerent drunk. Getting home at 5 am Monday morning and going straight to work was not ideal. Would have been nice to be home on the same day that my flight was scheduled."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable. My neck and lower back hurt afterwards. I do not recommend taking an overnight flight with united or do not expect to sleep if you do."
Pros: "Great seats, organized boarding"
Cons: "Too many loud unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Changed gate to another terminal at the last minute, we made it on time buy with an infant and a toddler taking a bus in a raining day was tough."
Pros: "Clean new aircraft, flight attendants pleasant"
Cons: "Bare bones, no entertainment system, beverages offered once in 5 hours, water once. Narrow seats with lots of neighbors elbows."
Pros: "Crew was good, food terrible."
Cons: "Most of it"
Pros: "Pilot and flight attendant communication"
Cons: "Seats too close. No food available for last 10 rows of plane. Way too long of a flight for there to be limited food availability."
Pros: "The flight was packed, uncomfortable and not much to est that is healthy."
Cons: "I was two hours delayed from my originating terminal in Denver due to a snow storm overnight. I arrive into Houston two hours late only to re adjust my remaining flights back to Denver. Two days later. What was supposed to be a one day trip to get my kids to spend it with me in Colorado. Is now turning into a three day filled adventure in airports."
Cons: "I was in the center bulkhead seat with an very oversized man on the aisle seat with a "service dog". It was not a service dog in the sense that it was all over the place--on my feet and in the aisle where it tripped a stewardess more than once and she told him it couldn't be in the aisle. So it pushed over to my seat because the guy was just to big to share his legroom. It shredded napkins the man dropped which a trained dog would not do. it bounced his tray table up causing him to drop his two vodkas. I had to have the stewardess tell him to move his arm and body out of my seat so I could stow my tray for landing. When waiting for my ride outside the dog was off lease and ran into the pickup lanes where the man had to chase him down. A true service dog would never behave like that."
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Cons: "This was the flight from hell. Terrible uncomfortable seats. Could not get the monitor turned off and out of my eyes. Plus we were delayed 4 hours in this crappy airport only to get on a really crappy plane. We were supposed to arrive in Tampa before 10 but wound up getting in like a red eye at 1230 am. Lost out on our ride home and we were so exhausted. I cried most of this flight home 2 1/2 hour flight. Nice staff but crappy plane. I am waiting to get a call to get reimbursed for my loss of time at work and the missed ride home."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "The flight was good. Little bumpy but that was to be expected with a hurricane near by"
Pros: "Check in was easy. bags made it."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway because of security "issue.""
Pros: "Entertainment should really be N/A. Landing was a little hard but all in all it was a good flight."
Cons: "Everything was very smooth. No issues."
Pros: "Newer planes"
Cons: "More and better snacks, should provide pillows"
Pros: "The plane was very clean, modern, and it just felt safe. The crew is excellent, and the flight took less than three hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour. Boarding was a bit of a problem, there was a miscommunication of who boarded first and who would board next so the boarding process was a bit delayed and disorganized. No entertainment was offered."
Pros: "Clearly a recent D check plane, very clean and new interior"
Cons: "New screens are nice, but $8 to watch TV for a couple of hours? Take a hint from JetBlue, United, STOP NICKEL AND DIMING CUSTOMERS! This on top of there being two solid rows of economy comfort seating open, and not letting us move back one row to the economy comfort seats since ours wouldn't recline because they were in front of that exit row. On United website, it would've been $25 to upgrade each seat (not horrible), and the flight attendant told us we couldn't when we asked that they were $100+ seats and that there's nothing she could do. Thanks United. Guess I'll go back to being a JetBlue customer."
Pros: "The crew was mostly friendly. One crew member didn't look too happy to be there, but the rest were quite friendly. The flight took off on time or earlier. We landed and started exiting the plane about 15 minutes earlier than expected which is always good. Even though you had to pay for the entertainment, they did provide one channel without paying and played a couple tv episodes."
Cons: "I don't really have any complaints, it was a good trip."
Pros: "Brought us safe to Hawaii and back home home."
Cons: "My brother accidentally left his passport, ring and chain inside the plain which was very expensive and he called after he noticed he didn't have it with him. He left it inside of the pocket holder of the seat on the plain where the magazine are. He called and was told nothing was there. On our way back home, the flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours behinds. At no moment did the co pilot excused himself nor did he apologized for the the delay. We deserved at least a free meal or some kind of compensation. Instead, the pilot and flight attendants just told us to rich it because we had to leave to L.A! We (8) family members came and this includes an elderly person (my mother who has been fighting cancer for about 2 years, along with diabetes) came to see her grandaughter get married. Now they were rushing her as well? Uncalled for. Now my other brother and his family which was a party of 10 on another flight, also flew to Hawaii. Now that alone tells you how much money was spent. The stay in Hawaii was amazing! We would visit again but the way we were treated on this airline, I don't think we would fly again and choose this airline. To be honest, not even recommend it. I'm ashamed to let others know such as friends and co workers know of this airline's service. To top it off one flight attendant was very rude! She saw us when she handed the other passengers pretzels and skipped my mother, my sister and I. I asked her nicely if we may have some and told her she had skipped us. She said, "I did?" Came back with 6 bags of thenm and was like, "Here!" Like shoving them to me. I felt humiliated! I didn't say anything because I didn't want to embarrass her. But it was extremely rude!!! I read some reviews and I guess it's normal on your end to be the way you treat your customers. We even asked before abording from Hawaii to L.A, what can you do to make up for all this and we were told, "nothing could". So ashamed."
Pros: "The employees were extremely helpful and friendly. I had just flown in with united from Hawaii and landed 6. 15 am that morning and the employees assisted as I was not familiar with the airport. Will definitely fly united again."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "On time, gates were close together"
Cons: "I had originally booked an isle or window seat and ended up in the middle This made it very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Seats where ok and they gave beverage"
Cons: "Literally no leg room space"
