They were available when we needed them Not only available but willing. The laboratory was nice and clean. The aircraft was comfortable. The food was good. I appreciate the complimentary drinks and snacks. My child enjoyed the variety of movie selections. Our whole experience was wonderful.

Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."

Cons: "Was in seat 16A and got bumped to 12E. If you know Delta aircraft, that's exit row window, for the EC (more legroom) but middle. The problem is that nothing can compete with the exit row for leg room and being crammed between two guys isn't an upgrade either. Plus, due to proximity, got sick. And the flight was delayed leaving - due to the late arrival from ATL (Delta HQ) which had a power outage. And no video entertainment. No meals."

Pros: "The price."

Pros: "Fast and comfortable"
Cons: "No tv but understanding"

Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."

Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."

Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"

Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."

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."

Cons: "Worst ever Can you credit my credit card for a full refund"

Pros: "Chairs were comfortable on this plane"
