Staff was all extremely polite and helpful. You could tell a clear difference from staff of other airlines. Seats in coach were pretty comfortable. Movie selection was just ok.

Everything was amazing! Thank you!

All good except our gate was occupied upon landing so we had to wait

My flight was delayed by 8 hours. Information regarding each successive delay was not clearly communicated, staff was helpful but overall left uninformed by higher-ups. The airline only offered a $15 voucher for meals as compensation and I was left very disappointed by Hawaiian airline's poor handling of the situation.

It’s was a nice easy flight. The seats are a little tight, but that seems to be the case in coach on every airline.

Really need vegetarian food options

Pros: "crew was nice, but did not come around enough to pick up trash."
Cons: "entertainment system didn't work, food was mediocre"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for almost an hour after arriving and the pilot totally lied about the expected wait, “About 10 minutes” when we first arrived and then no update for 45 minutes."
Cons: "Delayed flight, terrible ride"
Pros: "The boarding process and crew were great. The free food was a great surprise, I had brought food onboard. It was the first time flying Hawaiia so I was not current on amenities."
Cons: "It would be nice to know before boarding the flight that ALL the movies on the app had to be paid for if you wanted to watch. The movie choices were very limited."
Cons: "Racially profiled by security guard..Never coming here again."
Pros: "Being served a meal, snacks and a cocktail throughout the flight was great"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight. Having to download and app only viewable on phone or tablet is a pain. On top of that you have to pay for it"
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is fantastic. Great crew, great service. Loved the bbq chicken sandwich and chips for free. And the free rum punch drink!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. It was fantastic."
Pros: "Hawaiian always has smooth flights, good entertainment, a MEAL and free rum punch - what's not to like!!"
Cons: "boarding process was a bit slow in Maui, but not a deal killer."
Pros: "I was attended to without being bothered, fed and watered often."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the airline is very accommodating and it was clean. Will fly with Hawaiian airline again for sure."
Pros: "I was extremely pleased with the comfort/amenities. I also enjoyed the smooth flight. Traveling on an air bus 330 as compared to a c-130. Is the smoothest thing around."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The food, snacks, and especially the drinks."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "No wifi, no free movies, delayed"
Pros: "The crew of Hawaiian Airlines was outstanding. The boarding process was smooth and efficient. There was adequate space to store baggage, seating was comfortable, entertainment was outstanding, food and refreshments were fantastic."
Pros: "Easy and perfect!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful. On my flight home from Lihue one of the young men (crew member ) was extremely helpful to a young mother with a baby who was having problems with her son , I know she appreciated his kind jester in trying to take the time to talk to the little boy and assured him everything was going to be ok if he would help his mom by behaving."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, the last two trips I have made, I had a delay , I'm glad I didn't have to catch a connecting flight."
Pros: "Hawaiian reminds me what it was like flying in the good old days. Complimentary cocktails keeps it classy"
Cons: "Entertainment was rentable ipads so basically nonexistent. Hardly a deal breaker since we all have our own these days."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. The safety video was nice."
Cons: "No vegetarian options, no entertainment options"
Pros: "Complimentary sandwich was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Despite being a 5 hr long flight, there were no individual entertainment screens for seats. Plane was old."
Pros: "Hawaiian Air crews deliver better service in a more professional manner than most others. We had a difficult group of passengers causing a delay upon boarding. The crew took care that well."
Cons: "Domestic air travel in the USA has generally lost it's way. The costomer experience can be negatively influenced at so many points during the average trip. On this flight, other passengers (one family) with disgusting manners, smelly carry on food and generally poor attitudes, made it a captive experience. The crew were the bright spot. An airline can't help that much but, can mitigate the damage and the employees did that. You have very good people."
Pros: "Left on time"
Pros: "This was an older aircraft so there’s just 1 screen, no outlets, no WiFi. The good part is that because you don’t have media, you can sleep. It’s super cold, but you can purchase a blanket for $10, which includes a pillow. The meal was free, a warm sandwich and chips."
Cons: "I didn’t like my seat which didn’t have a window nor was it an aisle seat : 16J"
Cons: "No entertainment, I requested a soda to take meds with shortly after takeoff. Crew member said she’d brong it to me in a minute. About 1/2 hour later she passed my seat and I asked again and she said “as soon as I finish this”. She never came. After an hour, the regular drink art came."
Pros: "Great crew, and service, clean restrooms, free bag check due to full airplane"
Cons: "No charging outlets"
Cons: "I didn't eat or feel drawn to any of the movies or entertainment offerings."
Pros: "Smooth Flight, decent food."
Cons: "Takes a long time to get off the plane once it's landed. Maybe they need more than one exit - that's probably not realistic but you asked."
Pros: "They serve meals which apparently doesn't happen on the other airlines. They offer free wine with the meals which was a nice touch but we didn't have any - just water was fine. In the Airbus 330 there was plenty of room to store carry on luggage"
Cons: "We don't look to be treated like we are royalty. But it would be nice if the flight crew took more time to be friendly - smile a little maybe and make it look like you are happy to be there. I had brought gift cards along to tip the flight attendants but it just didn't happen."
Pros: "Great staff, comfy seats. Took red eye and was given blanket and pillow complimentary! So nice!"
Cons: "Didn't get breakfast :/"
Pros: "We were Platinum so we could use the Premier Club room."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Had no problem this time. Going nonstop was the way to go"
Pros: "Crew always pleasant. The way it used to be."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped in Airbus 330?? And I'm only 5'."
Cons: "Sure don't like paying for baggage and watching movies! Those items should both be free!!!!!"
Pros: "Loved the free guava-oj, real props for safety features, and friendly flight attendants. Smooth flight on time and comfortable."
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Checking in at the Kona airport is chaotic. People with baggage moving through other people in lines for check - in. Gate agents were most unpleasant, for example, - started yelling at one woman that she couldn't go through the front of the line, even though she was simply trying to follow her blind mother! Could have handled that a whole lot better."
Pros: "The entire trip was smooth and easy, from check in at Honolulu airport to baggage claim at LAX, we had zero issues! That's a rarer and rarer thing these days. The flight crew were friendly and polite, the complimentary meal in coach was a pleasant surprise, and the A330-2 was smartly designed for relative comfort and accessibility."
Cons: "Would be great if there were SOME free television offerings, like Southwest Airlines does. I understand paying for the movies (although if you really wanted to stand out above the competition you could offer a select movie for free like in the old days), however the option to watch some satellite tv channels at no cost would be great. Also the nearest bathroom was out of order and that was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "It wasn't to bad a bit camped, the seats are right. The crew was lovely the food could be better but other than the screaming kids it was ok"
Cons: "Food choices could be better"
Pros: "Other than the IDIOT who was handeling board who had me standing over 50 minutes, I have had 7 knee surguries. No one could stop her all she wanted seating people by sections according to her"
Cons: "By the time I boarded I could hardly walk"
Pros: "We got the seats we wanted, and didn't pay extra for it"
Cons: "The fact that we can't get 2 seats next to each other even"
Cons: "Cancelled our flight, after that we didn't get our luggages ☹️ That's why we didn't take part of our trip to Polynesian Cultural Center, the flight was delayed 9 hours"
Pros: "Everything"
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!"
Pros: "They actually had a complimentary meal"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flights were not full, so lots of space to stretch out. Really makes a difference. I wish flights weren't so crowded/more space all the time ;("
Cons: "Should be more free entertainment options."
Pros: "The plane needed more leg room."
Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"

Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Cleaner window"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Missed flight due to unnecessary delays"
Pros: "Flight left on time and landed on time"

Cons: "Ticket printed out incorrect gate information"
Pros: "Each employee on the plane was nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Delays out of MCI and late arrival, no hope for a decent seat on HNL leg, couldn't sit with husband, huge smelly seat mate, used up 10,000 miles on my account and paid higher price than current ticket price, middle seats, not happy"
Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."
Pros: "Snacks and drinks and movies on point."
Cons: "No cheese its."
Pros: "It was Ok. Some short delay but over all not too bad. Just didn't like the fact I always get seats next to the toilet"
Pros: "Delta never ceases to amaze me. The flight was perfect!"
Cons: "There’s nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."

Cons: "One flight attendant was a little rude to the passenger on my row who was hard of hearing."
Pros: "Delta is professional and safe. The best fares ever."
Cons: "Lack of food/snack choices. Seem like a shortage on ice."
Pros: "I was booked for the late flight. There was an earlier flight with space. But I had to pay $200/seat to get to the earlier flight. WHY? Why make a family of 5 way several more hours? Why can't you be like Southwest?"
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 LIKED EVERYTHING,SERVICE AND ATENTION WAS EXELLENT ,PERSONAL WAS GREAT, MY BEST FLIGHT EVER..."
Cons: "WELL,ALL TV SCRENS ON THE RIGHT SIDE WASN'T WORKING,BUT NOT A BIG DEAL..."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Amenities, service, and punctuation of flight"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, gate agent upgraded my middle seat to an exit row window for free (or so I thought), decent movie options"
Cons: "Some of the crew seemed a bit grumpy, was not given the seat I was told I got, not much leg room in economy, was given wrong meal, first meal was taken away without being asked, second meal was stale (french toast), flight was a bit warm, bathrooms not stocked"

Cons: "Seatsnare ridiculously tight for a 6ft man."
Pros: "The EXIT seat with nothing in front of me."
Cons: "The non-ability to pre book seating. Assignment not available until arriving at departure gate. No entertainment."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multiple cancellations and a total of THIRTY HOURS OF TRAVEL TIME for what was supposed to be 5 hours of travel in the beginning. I am still sitting in a god damn airport as we speak."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, friendly staff."
Pros: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Cons: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Pros: "A night flight well done. The snack choices were awesome, and the in flight entertainment was A+"
Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "Food variety for lactose intolerant. Crew was bare able."
Cons: "No entertainment for the whole 5 hr flight. Very bad"

Overall well done! Gotta get food in a 5+ hour flight...

Long time taxi’ing on runway and took over an hour to get our bags after getting off airplane

Pros: "I got there safe!"
Cons: "I f plane had slowed downed during turbulence."
Pros: "Nothing to write home about."
Cons: "Squished seats, mediocre food. Competitor deliver more for the same price or less."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"
Cons: "Stewardesses were grouchy except the one Oriental stewardess. Boarding was late. Reclining seats need to be eliminated!!! I paid $100 extra for additional 6 inches of legroom which was lost when person in front of me reclined. Kona Airport is nasty."
Cons: "Was next to crying child. I do understand crying children. But I should have footed a free glass of rose."
Pros: "I liked that they were on time (mostly) I liked the movie choices.. Crew were very nice....."
Cons: "Wasting money on their part for the silly little bags of pretzels......hardly worth the effort......could be a little more generous on a five hour flight.........."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight attendant worked really hard to keep people moving and comfortable and safe. Pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The plane is a bit older and they need to update their fleet. Boarding process needs to start sooner. Not sure what is ... Took forever for them to board."
Cons: "Only negative is that the American Eagle flights must take a shuttle from the remote terminal."
Pros: "Expensive, tight seats, They now charge extra if you want to sit by the window. Mediocre."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. Avoid this airline like the plague. Never again."
Pros: "Kind crew, smooth flight"
Cons: "lack of communication on flight delay"
Pros: "19 minute flight wheels up to wheels down!"
Pros: "Food and staff are great"
Cons: "Small space between seats"
Pros: "Arrived early with great service which is most important when flying."
Cons: "Entertainment was not on par with competitors like Delta, especially on a long flight. Movies depended on downloading the gogo app before you boarded which most were not aware of until we were airborne."
Pros: "The announcements were clear and the captain did not mumble! Not sure what happened at the airport but we had issues with ground crew not coming to help park us. The captain made sure we were informed and it didn’t really add to much to our time."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the entertainment was wonderful."
Cons: "Small space once passenger in front of you lowers their seat back. Difficult to get in and out of my seat like that"
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."
Pros: "The seats seem to be shrinking. The flight was flawless."
Cons: "Tight seats, but I guess that is going to be the norm now."
Pros: "The crew was great, the entertainment options were plentiful (if you bring your own earphones) and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I'm only 5'7" and normal build, and the seats were uncomfortably narrow with no room to partially straighten even my short legs. The life vest box under each seat also doesn't leave much room for the personal item you're supposed to stow under there."
Cons: "Ticket was never issued."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and genuine"
Cons: "They didn’t load enough “for purchase” food. This was a six hour flight! They has no options left excepthummus and chips. This is second flight on American this year where they don’t supply the plane appropriately."
Pros: "Boarded in a timely manner."
Pros: "Mechanical issues caused a 75 minute delay in taking off."
Cons: "Several delays"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, comfortable and decent amount of leg room, good in-flight entertainment options and regular refreshments."
Cons: "We departed later than we were due to (possibly not American Airlines' fault) I wouldn't rate the food particularly highly but for plane food it is what you would expect!"
Cons: "Both to and from Hawaii, they ran out of food before they made it to us. It was bad enough that they had one cart for the entire plane. It took 90 minutes from the time they began serving until they got to us in row 34, but they ran out of food at row 31. The flight attendant just shrugged and said, "They do that to us all the time, sorry.""
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Pros: "The flight was good crew members was nice and professional."
Pros: "We're hustling and hard working."
Cons: "Having to fly from Hawaii back to lax to fly to Australia."
Pros: "On plane staff was attentive and very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight departure. New norm, being late?"
Pros: "It was quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "On a 5 1/2 hour flight in first class it would have been nice to be offered something other than water to drink. the entertainment system didn't work at all in my seat. Also, after e a very trying day, I was anxious to get home, and the luggage didn't arrive until 90 minutes after touchdown. I guess that's what they mean by priority service- first on the plane and last off."
Pros: "Flight landed 40 minutes early"
Cons: "Due to early landing, no gate available. We literally rode all over the tarmac making room for other planes to maneuver around...and then did not get to a gate until 15 minutes past ORIGINAL arrival time. Also, I booked a premium seat, but there was no more leg room than any other seat. No meal/snack for purchase was even offered."
Pros: "Good seat back entertainment system. Plenty of movies I wanted to watch. Good to have an AC power outlet, too, to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "Charging more for some seats is a crappy business practice. Never enough room. Warmer than I'd like. Guy behind me kept stretching out his legs so much that he'd hit my feet unless I also stretched out."
Pros: "JAL is awesome overall. Super friendly crew. It was a short flight so no good was given but I did get little treats. There wasn't a tv to watch anything but I survived."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late departure, and arrival (no gate at LAX due to late arrival."
Pros: "Plane was good. Not jammed too tightly to be comfortably."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving. Baggage took a ridiculous amount of time to come down."
Pros: "All the staff were super friendly and warm. The customer service was top notch - beyond beyond amazing. The seats were comfortable. And the cups for our complimentary beverage weren't kids sized! I received a normal cup! The whole experience was a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "There was only one *tiny* negative... baggage. It would have exceeded my expectations if baggage was included instead of an additional fee. But this is wouldn't deter me from flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "The movie, game and music selections were good. However, my son was only able to connect to the Disney movies. Something was wrong with his monitor."
Cons: "Food was awful! Service was hit or miss. One flight attendant was very curt in asking about beverages. They seemed to be impatient. Also, comfort level was poor. I am only about 5'2" but I thought leg room space was tight."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Pros: "I had all three seats to myself! The plane temperature was good, the pilots were friendly and funny as a spoke to the passengers. The crew was attentive, and we arrived on time despite getting off to a late start. Plus the pilots did a great job on landing the plane."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."
Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."
Pros: "Got home safely (eventually)"
Cons: "Left 3.5 hours late. Promised a connection the following morning and a hotel. Arrived at SFO only to be told that they would not pay for the hotel (or make arrangements) as the delay was weather related (since when is trying to leave BEFORE a typhoon hits and being LATE a weather related issue). They gave me the option of after a 13 hour flight at 11:30pm walking over to find AA staff in another terminal to argue for payment. I was too tired. After 1 million miles on AA I will avoid them now."
Pros: "Fit and finish of cabin interior was nice."
Cons: "I REALLY wish this flight had drop down footrests in coach. The video demonstration advises passengers to put up foot rests and tray tables upon approach. I wish there had been a foot rest - my back was killing me due to the inability to lift my knees and feet to take the pressure off my lower back."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment interface was well-designed. The aircraft tracker is the best, the media selections were plentiful. Having the usb and headphone plugs next to the monitor is the best. Better than Virgin for sure. But strangely, you couldn't order from the food and drinks menu like you can from Virgin so it was just a video version of the menu card. Food was good."
Cons: "Someone destroyed a lavatory so we were short one for the flight and caused a 30 minute delay before take-off. The usual spiral happened: pilot flew into bad turbulence to make up time. No biggie."

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: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Pros: "The flight was smooth."

Cons: "seats are so uncomfortable. no space."
Pros: "Friendly and courteous servive."
Cons: "No entertainment and very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Very professional"
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, friendlier staff and newer planes than United."
Cons: "Snacks - pretzels? Fresh baby carrots would have been better, or apples & PB. Purchase food options are not healthy."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and prompt. Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Flight was to short."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"

Pros: "Great captain and crew."
Cons: "I prefer the entertainment on your own device."
Pros: "Kind staff."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable. Unbelievable for an overseas flight. Hard plastic commuter plane seats meant for short flights."
Pros: "I booked a basic economy seat & ended up on a small plane, that was fully booked. It had 2 seats on either side of the aisle but it was surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was short so thankfully I didn't have to pay for entertainment. It's a loser move to make the customers pay for everything; luggage, food & entertainment on my international flights, I always go for the companies that try to make the passengers comfortable and I'm going to think the same way on my local flights in the future"
Cons: "I had to miss an extra day of work because of the delay coming back to Los Angeles. Thankful the Kayak app informed me of the delay in time to not go so early but once at the airport, my flight got delayed 2 more times."
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "Before taking off, one of the flight attendants unplugged my power charger and threw it on the floor. The same flight attendant asked if I wanted anything to drink. After stating water please, she never came back with any drink at all. Mind you, I paid for 1st class. I guess that's how United treats their 1st class passengers. Never again"
Pros: "Upgraded to extra comfort seating."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed."
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."
Cons: "The was delayed three times without explanation."
Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled out of Hawaii because crew didn't verify if radio equipment worked , changing all our flights and significantly increasing the travel time home. To top it off, they lost our suitcases. I'll never fly with united again ."
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."
Pros: "Super Bowl Perks!!! & great service tight"
Cons: "As usual with all flights, tight seating"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Cons: "On at least one leg of my trip both two and from my destination the flight was late. As if that wasn't bad enough, twice the plane was over sold and people had to be removed to stay and catch a later flight which in turn made the plane even later. Many people either had to run to catch their connection or missed it all together. Several of which had small children. I fly about half a dozen times a year and this was the worst of the year."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "I actually got bumped from this flight to one that went directly to my final destination of San Fransisco. What a great experience!"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Snacks were good. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Wifi doesn't work. EVER."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Thank you"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight from Grand Rapids MI to Denver CO was fine. When I arived in Denver i found out my flight was 3 hours lat because the plane had not left yet, i will never fly united again"
Pros: "Had a great night sleep despite it being delayed 3 hours."
Cons: "Flight got into LA and 2:00am but overall the service was good"
Pros: "Airline attendants were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "I sat in a window seat, yet had no window. I travelled with two other people, and none of us were able to sit together. The seats were more cramped than any other plane I had been on. The light above me was not even strong enough to illuminate the words of the book I was reading, so thankfully there was still some sunshine. There was also no in air entertainment, which I feel like is usually a standard on most planes nowadays."
Pros: "Check in was easy. bags made it."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway because of security "issue.""
Pros: "Landing and leaving"
Cons: "I paid extra money for a better seat and it was crowded and uncomfortable. When I walked back there were plenty of more comfortable seats empty!!! I wasted $80!!!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, but once I got on I had a great flight!"
Cons: "Small plane, seated in very back row, unable to tilt seats back. no food no service."
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 price Phoenix to LA and back for around $77"
Cons: "I got the shitty set by the exit door that didn't recline no big deal on such a short trip"
Pros: "The space in between the row in front was above average. The extra space is appreciated. Gate agents were kind and helpful during the boarding process."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1 hour after landing. I know that wasn't the crews fault. But they could have given more frequent updates and at least told us what gate we were at so we could have a better idea when trying to frantically make our connections. Also the entertainment was pricey for a 5 hour flight that I paid good money for. I thinK basic movies should just be included in the fees"
Cons: "There should be some free tv"
