Pros: "Smooth, comfortable, wonderful staff and nice meals/snacks/ selection of movies."
Cons: "New app for entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed so missed lunch and wasted more than half a day in the airport instead of enjoying my vacation"
Pros: "Hawaiian Airline staff attempted to accommodate a delayed flight by rescheduling but caused a 12 hour delay in the process. My flight actually left a little after schedule and they gave our seats away while we were standing at the gate trying to straighten out our connection flight. Poor execution"
Cons: "The whole experience"
Pros: "Non stop very good"
Cons: "Served no vegetarian lunch just chicken"
Pros: "I love the energy of Hawaiian Airlines I truly feel the Aloha"
Cons: "My bag was lost ~ that's frustrating. This is an aspect of my travel, but overall my flight & experience was groovy."
Pros: "I loved my experience with HA. The flight attendants and airport staff are so friendly and welcoming. The Hawaiian music and informative video are lovely touches. 1) I do NOT appreciate the $25 charge for luggage. Southwest does not charge for checked bags, and they are thriving. I think it's greedy to charge for luggage. 2) I wish they'd offer a meatless option when serving meals. So many people are plant-based now and I wish HA offered that to patrons. 3) Movies and TV in-flight should be free, as in...gratis. Other carriers offer free in-flight entertainment and HA should not charge. 4) The planes are nice, the crew is FABULOUS; truly a standout in the industry. They have that beautiful Aloha spirit."
Pros: "Fantastic attendants, clean, overal A+"
Pros: "Lots of space for coach passengers and I’m 6’2”."
Cons: "None of the snack or meal options were vegan"
Cons: "Boarding procedure"
Cons: "Flying first class, only one bag that was #54. Had to pay $75 for a “heavy” bag; even though I am allowed 3 checked bags! I was outraged. Only flying from Kaua’i to Honolulu. (Then Delta to Atlanta). Very rude ticket agent, then rude flight attendants."
Pros: "It just a quick flight from Kihue to Honolulu so you can’t expect much. You go up, you come down. Not much time for comfort or for. At least we got juice."
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "No leg room with Silver (raft or?) under seat."
Cons: "Poor entertainment. Poor meal servir (no vegetarian options). Old planes."
Cons: "Very unclear about where/when to board in Kona"
Pros: "Equipment was clean and comfortable. Flight crew was extremely pleasant and willing to work the cabin price was very competitive"
Cons: "Airport terminal inLihue needs upgrades and more seating."
Cons: "Had to wait 15 min after we landed for someone to bring the sky ramp over"
Pros: "Solid all around"
Cons: "The women at the gate were total bitches. Rude. Poor costumer service. And not very helpful. The main woman ( Hawaiian mix looking ) was very rude and stuck up. You need to retrain her!!! I will never book that flight ever again !!! Very disappointed. Rather go with Delta!!!"
Cons: "No veggie food on a 6 hour long flight! Air craft too old. No free in-flight entertainment. Basic utilities like blanket and snacks ridiculously expensive. Staff not friendly in general even during holiday season."
Cons: "Food option is lousy - instead of sandwiches, just give me some fruit or vegetables or hard boiled eggs. And the entertainment options are mostly paid - terrible for kids. We had children screaming on the whole flight and this might have been helped if you offered free kids selections on the entertainment. Even Delta and Alaska offer free entertainment. And I was surprised there was no Wifi either."
Cons: "Waited 15 minutes on runway for gate to clear. Baggage also slow and conveyor seemed to have problems"
Pros: "I did like the orange mix juice they gave out."
Cons: "They've lost our luggage"
Pros: "Wish there was a free movie for the general seating"
Cons: "7 hours of sitting in the airport because of a delay."
Cons: "They destroyed us a new samsonite suitcase"
Pros: "Plane was fine once boarded"
Cons: "Seemed like workers didn't know what they exactly where doing got told several different things by different employees . They also had people doing some what seemened to be really Unnecessary stuff."
Pros: "Very nice people and they didn't hassle us about carry on bags like the other inter-island airlines"
Cons: "No timely info provided prior to and during the delay. Except for the fact that there was no acft at the gate there was no announcement of a delay. A Delta passenger rcvd a text about the delay, but nothing from HAL. No one around to answer questions till the end of the second delay was near."
Pros: "I like that they actually serve food, snacks, drinks, complimentary glass of wine, and everyone is nice!"
Cons: "I had my own entertainment so I was fine with my iPad, but some airlines have tv's for everyone! Their movie screens played Hawaiian music videos, after one I was bored! Too many waterfalls, which is something I never thought I'd say"
Cons: "The baggage took almost an hour to be retrieved. Specifically the staff was inadequate to unload baggage. The last things to be returned were all of the car seats, meaning the already late flight for families waited over an hour to leave the airport."
Cons: "Still waiting for luggage 45 minutes after arriving!"
Cons: "Extra cost for bags and no Snacks."
Cons: "The security guard made me go through security twice and then pointed me in the wrong direction to the gate and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "First time I was given a free meal on a plane in decades."
Cons: "Let me start by saying.. I never ever leave negative comments; and two, I apologize for th long winded message.. but I'm still fuming!! My husband and I both had smaller roller carry on bags traveling with us. When we approached the plane through the gate, the Hawaiian Airlines staff told us there wasn't anymore room for our bags, and that they would have to be checked. Whenever this has been done on other airlines, they always return your bag to you as soon as you get off the plane... not this time! Our bags were sent to baggage claim, and we had a connecting flight with a very short layover window! This means that we were FORCED to leave the airport area, retrieve our bags from baggage claim, go through security AGAIN and almost miss our connecting flight! I expressed to the crew immediately after we got off the plane our situation and that we were never even given an option to give them our bags as we would have never opted in for going all the way out and all the way back in to get to our connection (SO stressful!!). Make a long story short, the staff lied to us about where our bags were going, were NOT helpful when I told them that we needed our bags, and showed no concern or sympathy that we may miss out connecting flight because of their mistake. Winded, mad and extremely late.. we barely got on the connection.. NO THANKS TO THE HAWAIIAN AIRLINES STAFF! Will never fly Hawaiian again!"
Cons: "Plane was late and barely enough time to make connecting flight to Oakland"
Cons: "would like complimentary TV channels and movies"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Additional fees everywhere, Even charged for water.. Lost bags, days to collect, Paid for seat upgrade, planes switched, lost seat, no refund."
Pros: "The crew was right-on, good job!"
