Pros: "Plane on time"
Cons: "Short flight so no food"

For a flight from KOA to LIH through HNL, other travelers Andy self were told there was no plane change and not to worry about the KOA to HNL flight landing AFTER the HNL to LIH fight started boarding.

Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."
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: "As always, the crew and amenities were first rate."

Cons: "No tv but understanding"
Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."
Cons: "The flight was way too hot. They didn't have enough A/C and we were all sweating up a storm on the flight. The flight was also scheduled to leave 15 min early, but we ended up leaving 15 minutes late, it was odd. One of the bathrooms was out of order too."

Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."

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: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"
Cons: "Getting the crew to fly on original date of 12/31 instead of having to scramble to find hotel on other side of BI in Hilo on New Years eve. 24 hour delay and then giving the last row of seats with a screaming baby that another group kept walking back to our section to "grace" us with such melodies!"

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.
