Top 5 airlines serving Kona Intl to Asia
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Almost missed my flight - they could not locate me as a ticketed passenger"
Cons: "Choices were few by the time the cart got to us and the food was... airplane food. Nothing terrible but nothing to write home about nor anything a picky child would eat. :/"
Pros: "They were every where all the time! No sitting around in the back like most airlines. Movies Hallie and many first run and Oscar nominated."
Pros: "The crackers design beside the meal and different colors of the sleepers."
Cons: "Ear phone is not so comfortable!"
Pros: "This was my first time to travel with JAL. They take excellent care of all of their passengers. The flights did not seem to be as long as they were. I was very comfortable."
Pros: "Great airline, roomy seats and they don't nickle and dime you like other airlines."
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: "I fly with JAL business class and it was the best business class I have ever experience. The crew was amazingly helpful and polite."
Cons: "I wish they can pronounce English language better. Sometimes I did not understand what did they said. Including the pilot. I don't want to be an American brat, but I did not understand what they said."
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: "Everything from check in till I got off the plane was fantastic. Friendly and helpful crew with impeccable service unlike a certain few airlines. Will definitely use JAL again!"
Cons: "Can't think of any"
Pros: "They provide us slipper for in flight comfort"
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "Boarding process; comfortable legroom on the Boeing 787; 1st meal was also excellent"
Cons: "2nd meal, some sort of a rice seafood mixture"
Pros: "Boarding is efficient. Crew helpful and willing to please."
Cons: "The food and overall service amenities are lacking in JAL. My flight was 8 hours and only one meal was served and one snack. The meals themselves are nothing special or enjoyable."
Pros: "We boarded quickly and orderly. The crew was very attentive and made sure we all had enough to eat and drink. The food was good, the tea and coffee was good."
Cons: "Not a darn thing...."
Pros: "great service"
Cons: "difficulty in figuring out how to use the controls on the entertainment remote"
Pros: "The service was exceptional, friendly and polite. Food was good and entertainment selection was awesome."
Pros: "As always on JAL 787-8 long haul flights, the crew was very courteous, entertainment was varied, food was alright and seats were better than some."
Cons: "The JAL first-generation 787s don't provide the great legroom that newer planes do, but is still infinitely better than older 767s and 747s."
Pros: "Service was excellent - Flight attendants were friendly and professional."
Pros: "everything is much better, everything! including how boarding and de-planing is more orderly than most other flights."
Pros: "JAL in general."
Pros: "I like the food they served during the flight. It very well-thought meal and delicious at the same time. I also like the latest movies on board. We also arrived 20 minutes early! It was absolutely smooth and relaxing flight."
Pros: "Courtesy of crew members"
Cons: "No vegetarian food available"
Pros: "Good and polite crew"
Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"
Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."
Pros: "There was a huge check-in line but it went quickly because they had 8-10 ticket agents with luggage 'helpers' for the agents. 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: "nothing at all...horrible aircraft, horrible flight"
Cons: "1) could not pre-book seat as it was a codeshare. You should change that...better on a budget carrier 2) The plane is not competitive, ancient entertainment system, no power in seats to plug in 3) Entertainment system did not work for all but 10 minutes or so of the flight. 4) food was really horrid, no japanese option!"
Pros: "Plenty of room for economy seats. Good food. Free movies and music. Friendly service."
Cons: "Air temperature was super hot and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing... Being put on the wrong airline is incredibly degrading ..."
Cons: "I paid for JAL and was put on American airlines YOU WILL NEVER HAVE MY BUSINESS AGAIN ... Kayak or jp\american airline. I hope you hire a manager who doesn't lie to their customers... Don't think it's a lie ?? That's BC greed is blinding. Good day"

Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me. Very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre on this leg. Oh, and late departing AGAIN. Will seriously look for other options on next trip."

Pros: "Crew were good, food was decent"

Cons: "The good got used a bus gate which is acceptable however this typically takes additional time if there is a connection flight"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, they were aware of alternative meal requests, professional, comfortable temperature"
Cons: "When dropping my bag at check in counter, the employee at the counter asked, somewhat intrusively, what the extra fee I paid was for. When I told her it was for the Al Mourjan lounge in Doha, her facial response and attitude came across as judgemental, and was not appropriate"
Pros: "Individual service, happy and natural looking crew, comfort and company aim."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good.

Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that.

Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."

Had a First Class ticket / Issues No mileage card entered Lifted my trolly and said 'to heavy' but refused to put it on a scale had to check it - go out in Honolulu - redo security etc ..for nothing.

Cons: "There is no competiter for Hawaiian airline much between inner islands. Wish more big company join in routs and compete prices."
Pros: "We had to walk up a flight of stairs to get on the plane. It was a bit challenging with my carry-on luggage with wheels, but we made it. The boarding area was chaotic, as the gate had room for only a few people. We got separated from my husband. My son had my husband's carry-on and the boarding agent said he had to check in my husband's luggage because my husband was not there to verity that it was his carry-on. Hawaiian Airlines is the only mainland bound airline that makes customers have their carry-on luggage go through agriculture. Why???"

Pros: "The agent in Kona was extremely nice and helpful in helping us switch undesirable seats for excellent seats. She really went out of her way."

The service people were rude and wouldn't accept my emotional support animal despite all the paperwork and prior notice. They declined us from sitting in the flight and took our checked bags out and refused my esp dog on the flight. We ended up not going in the flight we paid full for 3 passengers and they have not refunded our money"

Cons: "If they had noticed the first plane was extremely hot before boarding everyone and leaving the gate and if once they found a new plane they had bothered to put fuel in it during the hour we deplaned, walked to a different terminal, and reboarded. Also, if they had passed out drinks or snacks during the flight."

Pros: "There is Nothing that like"

Pros: "My flight from STX was delayed some 30 minutes. That made a dent in the 57 minutes I had to catch my Delta flight. Naturally we landed at gate A2 and Delta was boarding at Terminal 2 gate B9. Me with my knee replacement can’t run and my wheelchair was not in sight. Thank goodness I had a carryon with wheels. I was out of breath when I got to Delta and the last passengers were boarding. I started panicking and interrupted the ground steward who asked me to wait with a smile. I waited . So when I told them I was standby they waved me on after showing my passport. I couldn’t find my boarding pass. I was pleasantly surprised to get a seat in first class. I was so thankful. My first time. Good things come to those who wait! Thank you Delta."
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "no vegetarian food in flight, the layover for connecting flight was not sufficient,"
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the food they served made my child sick. But hey, that is a given. Most airplane food sucks. But it shouldn't make a person sick. The flight staff was okay, but not nearly as professional and friendly as the crew flying to Lisbon. Thankfully none of them ran over my foot with the metal cart."
Pros: "Easy boarding nice clean and spacious, I am tall so it is sometimes difficult to have enough space in aricraft. Staff was very nice, polite and helpfull during the long 12h flight, very nice job indeed!"
Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Cons: "Rude stewardesses; I was traveling with 3 children onanovernight flight. I just wanted the simplest things- blankets and headphones for them. I cannot believe that an overnight flight wouldn’t be stocked with pillows and blankets. We froze al the way across the Pacific."
Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality. I also am surprised that airlines (not just Delta) continue to provide such low quality food options on flights. I think consumers would pay more for better options."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg space whatsoever. I'm 6'8 and am being told to keep my legs in while it is near impossible or I'm eating my legs. I became so uncomfortable I became nauseous. Anyone above 6'4 is having a rough flight."
Cons: "Bags never arrived at the listed baggage claim. After 45 min, I saw bags on a different claim station and I notified everyone standing around. BUT, I filed a claim with Delta and was immediately given 2500 miles, as guaranteed!"
Pros: "Entertainment is so appreciated on long flights. It was quiet. Snacks done quickly. Took a long time to board, but the flight was full. We were delayed out of gate because of this. Unloading plane went fairly quick but could have been a problem for short connections. Those people should have been allowed to leave first."
Cons: "Flight was moved up from 830am departure to 6am departure with very little notice, and my layover was reduced from almost 2hrs to 30 minutes. Then, my bag was lost. Terrible."
Pros: "The LGA team did great in difficult situation"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Cons: "Customs officials are incredibly un-helpful and slow. I almost missed the next flight because of how slow was that part. I hope Delta can speak up for the passengers, because we cannot express that to these rude people."
Pros: "Direct flight, on time, friendly crew, smooth flight"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Turbulence was intense and scary. We didn’t get our drink service because it was unsafe for the flight attendant to walk the isle. The leg room seemed a lot smaller than expected."
Cons: "Felt like I was sitting in my neighbors lap!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "all flights were right on time. service was excellent. crew was very friendly. Comfort+ seating was excellent very comfortable"
Pros: "A night flight well done. The snack choices were awesome, and the in flight entertainment was A+"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."
Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"
Cons: "Cannot even request seats before booarding, as they try to get us to pay more. The anxiety over separate seating for couples is not worth it."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Delta is definitely the jewel of commercial airlines. I understand making money depends on how many bodies you can transport at one time. But as a large man the seat size and leg room could be improved. I unfortunately cant afford first class to remedy this problem."
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Pros: "Really liked the plan"
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"
Pros: "Friendly, hard working flight crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Not necessarily their fault, but they rarely communicated why or what to expect. Despite signing up for SMS notifications, I'd find out from Kayak more than I did from Delta."
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Staff is ticketing were unhelpful in straightening out Boarding process. I ask for help and the agent came over and read the computer screen to me as if that was all he was there for."
Pros: "The crew did above and beyond what was expected. They were nice, friendly, and professional."
Cons: "The line up at the check in counter was a bit of a mess and it took longer to check in. I was extremely upset at not being able to check in online and select a seat, I was therefore assigned a seat towards the end of the plane which I am not very happy with but it was rectified during boarding."
Pros: "Leaving the gate early, and take off right on time, landing early and at the gate right on time: amazing!"
Cons: "The crew is enforcing strictly the rule that the "forward seats" need to pay extra, even though entire rows are empty... No exception for any reason."
Pros: "We were in business class, and everything was just awesome, considering there were only 4 passengers in the cabin. So it was quiet and private."
Cons: "It’s BYOE. Zero entertainment amenities. (They do offer you IPAD). No slippers or eye shades.... its a four flight to Guam."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "Since I booked the flight last minute and I needed a special meal, there was no option to book one. It helps if there are such meals reserved for last minute bookings"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The ride..."
Cons: "Clean the rest room and fix the lavatory"
Cons: "From worst to worst."
Cons: "Food and service. Seat comfort."

Cons: "wish it was non stop but now it is."
Pros: "crew was great/ airline was clean"
Cons: "the flight from manila to jfk. the security check was 3x. i justthought it was crazy"
Pros: "The PAL Pilot and Cabin crew was very attentive and friendly. they showed professionalism to every passengers they have encountered. They were very attentive to the needs of each passenger due to 3 hrs delayed arrival. The food taste really good (Strawberry shortcake + chicken penne with red sauce). The plane is well cleaned."
Cons: "I have experienced 1 hr delay departure + 3 hours waiting inside the plane to land, but it was because of uncontrolled situation (force majuere). but despite of the delay, for me PAL served its finest world class service."
Pros: "delayed flight"
Pros: "The steward and stewardess were very nice."
Cons: "The plane was late, making a long day much longer. Worse still, I waited another 30 minutes for the luggage, making it almost 2 hours later before I got to the hotel."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable and fake leather. Staff were surly."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We didn’t appreciate the delay."
Cons: "Relatively comfortable seats. Boarding process rather chaotic. Awful food, poor and limited entertainment options, unkind and grumpy staff. Not great for 13 hours!"
Pros: "The treatment by the crew makes you feel like you’re home. Attendants were nice and helpful. Responsive."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to Korean air that was scheduled at 11:30, but our boarding was at 11:20. Then the bags took so long to get to the carousel. Other flights like the Qatar Air has bags waiting for the passengers. The SFO flight’s bags also were serviced better."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food needs to be improved, really not that great , the ice cream in biz class wasn’t even hagaan Daz , some cheap chinese brand , the entertainment was so so the seats weren’t even comfortable for biz class, when parking at the terminal they did not open the door in 1st class so it was tough to get out"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "No entertainment at all. This particular Philippine Airlines flight (PR113) from Los Angeles to Manila of July 7, 2018 did not have TV monitors, not even a USB port. Yes, they were iPads to hand around but it was not enough for everybody. Yes, we have cellphones but without a USB port, how do we recharge our phones? Sure we have power banks -- but why would we use it up on entertainment when we will definitely need it to communicate once we get to Manila? For a short flight, fine. However, for a long haul flight of 13 hours or so? Have mercy!!!!!"
Pros: "foods and crew were very courteous"
Pros: "Nothing really , service was ok but nothing special"
Cons: "The lounge was terrible , the food was average in the lounge , no international magazines or newspaper, the plane was so so so , food mediocre, entertainment was not good either ,"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, and patient are the words that come to mind. And very pretty, if that doesn't sound too sexist."
Pros: "Don't normally like leaving from JFK, but it was a direct flight to Vancouver, and the price was right. Also, they included 2 free bags in economy, a big savings. Also the meals were ok, and wine was included. Entertainment system was fine."
Cons: "Would have rather left out of EWR, but for the price it was worth the bit of inconvenience."
Pros: "It's a Philippine Flag carrier. It's a privilege to patronize our own carrier."
Cons: "No hassles at all. Generally a smooth flight to HongKong."
Pros: "Price.... $138 USD from HK to Manila at the last minute is fantastic. Also, very helpful ticket counter moved my flight to an earlier one than originally booked, at no extra charge."
Pros: "Up to date and WORKING entertainment system. Ample charging options. Business class seat operation a little cumbersome and complex, but fully reclining"
Cons: "Came down with flu right after flying, again! Most likely sources are passaenger poor hygiene, poor cleaning practice between flight and poor air recirculation with inadequate filtration...hope to fix those things one day"
Pros: "Decent video choices but not great; decent checkin process"
Cons: "No leg room. Bad food."
Pros: "Philippines Airlines ground staff expedited our immigration and customs clearance in MNL because of a flawed system for international transfers between terminals. We would have missed our connection despite a 2 hour connection time if not for their assistance."
Cons: "Despite having our bags tagged from TPE via MNL to DXB and a 2 hour transit window in MNL, we were forced to clear immigration in MNL, claim our bags, clear customs and then pay for taxi transfer between terminals to check in again for our PR flight from MNL to DXB. At the very least Philippines Airlines should have provided transport betweeen terminals. We will NOT transit through MNL again until this is fixed."
Pros: "I like the hot meals and cold drinks"
Cons: "The entertainment. Very limiting to those who are low in their mobile's batt supply. You should have with you an earphone or headphone. Planes wifi not responding."

Pros: "They have the friendliest flight crew I've ever seen."
Cons: "There was too much leg room. I'm not used to that."
Cons: "huge delay"
Pros: "Great staff very nice and enterianment system at each seat was very good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. At least this time they sent me a notification via email. On the flight from SFO to Manila, the flight was cancelled and we had to be reaccommodated the next day and I wasn't even notified that that was going to happen."
Cons: "need better control in boarding...passengers that were called to board at the very beginning couldn't get to the front of the line because everybody is already in line. Need to advise passengers that boarding is based on seating assignments and enforce it."
Pros: "Business class comfortable with friendly staff"
Cons: "Food was not good. Had to wait for 20 wheelchairs to go ahead of me when boarding. Not all those people were disabled but they ask you if you need a wheelchair and people just say yes so they can board first. It's a blatant abuse of the system."
Cons: "Departure time of 10pm..... didn't leave til after 11pm. and then we are sent to Guam. Nowhere on my ticket said we were to go to Guam. HORRIBLE SERVICE"
Cons: "No explanation just a four hour delay"
Pros: "Food, gift pack, in-flight wi-fi based entertainment."
Cons: "Seating a little bit cramped in coach."
Cons: "My flight lax- going mnla was very uncomfortable.. the plane was so small. No tv, movie and music.. it was an old plane of PAL.. i was upset and other passengers. But going back was better.. I'll rate them 5/10"

Cons: "Flight was a little bumpy but still on time"
Pros: "Philippine airlines was a great airline to travel with, with friendly staff good food comfortable seats and lots of entertainment options for the flight there and back will definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "On our return flight from Narita to Manila there was this family with 3 little kids and seating directly in front of us , the little girl cried the entire flight of 4 hours every 10 seconds and the mom didn't do anything to calm her , even wearing a headset I can hear the girl crying. The crew should have done something to seat them at the end but they were seated in the middle. Was so annoyed ! Flight attendant were slow taking our empty food tray. 1/2 hour later or more before they finally take it. No addt'l crew to give drinks after the meal."
Cons: "To small and old seats. I am so tiny already but I can bump my elbow to next person seating. No leg room."
Pros: "Courteous Staff altogether."
Cons: "Delays should have been posted earlier. Long lay-overs."
Pros: "Ice cream"
Cons: "No monitor"
Pros: "The staff members were very courteous, and meals were healthy. Nice selection of inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The temperature was very cold. Many people wore jackets and used blankets and we're still cold."
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."
