Pros: "The crew were very pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was (remarkably for Hawaiian Airlines) very late."
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+"

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."
Cons: "When we knew that we were going to miss our flight because of the slide by Honale,i we tried to contact someone about changing our flight time for over 3 hours and never got to talk to anyone. So we had to book with another airline and had to spend an extra night in a very expensive motel. This was a very frustrating experience and very stressful. We are not very happy with Hawaiian Airlines customer service."

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: "The text messages on flight information updates were very nice"
Cons: "I bought 3 tickets for 5 flights counting connecting flights, all purchased at the same time. I could not access the select seats option at the time of purchase. The computer chose to seat each of the 3 persons in my party in different rows on every flight. When I checked in to print boarding passes I could access the select seat option but there was a $10 charge per seat change, per flight. Since I would need to move at least 2 people per flight to sit together that would add at least $100 to our trip costs."

Pros: "I really love Hawaii it was beautiful."
Cons: "It was perfect"
Cons: "There was no lunch"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Service could be better. Bathrooms need to be clean periodically. Your cut back of restrooms - sucks. I guess the offer of free drinks and a small snack is all United can offer for the price we pay."
Pros: "If the food is offered free as part of the fare. The food is roughly $12.00 or whatever price. That should have been added to the fare we are paying for the flught."
Cons: "Didn't realize when we booked our seats that they were basic economy and we couldn't upgrade or change them. I was seated away from my husband, beside a very large man who hugged the armrest and munched loudly on corn chips. For 5 hours. Movie headphones were poor. No leg room and I'm 5'4", 125 lbs."
Cons: "The basic economy fare is not explained well when purchasing ticket. Insane that you can buy a ticket for your toddler child who is flying with you but can not request to sit next to them. And no overhead carry on is ridiculous. Have had so many problems with United this may be the final straw."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
Pros: "The variety of movies"
Cons: "No daily wifi"
Pros: "quick fast and no nonsense, nothing to worry about on a 30 minutes. Hawaiian gets you there fast and mostly on time."

Pros: "Excellent crew members."
Cons: "Warm ac."
Pros: "Was offered complimentary food item and I am not sure why, perhaps my Star Alliance Gold status?"
Cons: "Boeing 777 economy seating is tighter with new seating configuration."
Cons: "One crew is rude while I was ordering food while she is delivering the beverage after the order time. She simply told me they don't have what I want to order and leave. After 5 mins, I pushed the service button and nobody responded. After half hour, I ordered the food from another crew passed by. After I landed, they suppose to return my stroller set at the airplane gate. But they said it is not there, ask us to wait at the airport gate. We walked outside and they broadcasted again, I didn't hear very clearly but followed most parents to walk out. We wait at the baggage claim for almost 1 hour and finally, the baggage crew came back to the gate and found our stroller."
Pros: "Cell phone holder and power outlets that actually work"
Cons: "Basic economy pricing"
Cons: "Crew was not visible Seat space was very tight"
Cons: "We boarded the plane and due to "mechanical problem", we sat on the tarmac for ~3 hours before departing. This led to missing our connection at LAX and then missing our connection in ORD to State College tacking 6 extra hours to the trip. The late arrival and full work schedule the next day left me exhausted and got a nasty cold as a consequence. I find the frequency of mechanical problem delays to be high and increasing."
Pros: "The crew was accommodating and friendly. Boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "There were no tv's on the 5+ hr flights."
Cons: "Bathroom smelled terrible after multiple passengers made a BM! Should be cleaned and deodorant spray should be available. Had to use some body spray and cologne to neutralize the smell."
Cons: "The seating, being separated from my wife!"
Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"
Pros: "All the crews are very friendly,service was great!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Ay a connecting gate too far away!"
Cons: "Didn't really like the food plane that was offered, seating are so uncomfortable, had a child crying the whole way, wifi didn't work, there was a magazine in my sitting area with ink where I got ink on me, board was late"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."
Cons: "They didn't have the food I wanted by the time they got to the back of the plane"
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"
Pros: "The overall rating of the trip was positive, however, the staff at times was very disrespectful and unhelpful."
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "It was not overbooked and had plenty of space"
Cons: "Wifi and food prices were a little too expensive"
Cons: "Ever since gas prices went up to 5 a gallon years ago, the airlines started charging for food, checked bags etc etc. Now that gas prices have come down, the airlines still charge for said items. Totally LAME"
Pros: "Free drinks. Soft ones of course, but not something you can count on anymore. And very pleasant accommodating staff. Also very on time."
Pros: "Crew service was excellent."
