Pros: "I liked that some of the staff really wanted to see me smile."
Cons: "I am not going to pin point Hawaiian as the worst, I think all airlines just do not care anymore. I have a huge bruise on my upper side leg from trying to get up and down from my aisle seat for people to go to the bathroom. Even with the arm up it was hard to get up and down, the seats are way to close or I need to weigh 110 lbs. How do large men do it? I would not say I am a large person."
Pros: "The flight was fine, the crew friendly, and all the usual. The little prop plane was nimble and with the short hop over scenic islands, it felt almost like a paid tour."
Cons: "The $200 change fee for a different flight was pretty harsh. It's not really the airline's fault, but the TSA screening really makes it feel like we aren't free."
Pros: "Comfortable seats in the front of the plane. Very attentive and quick flight attendants."
Pros: "crew was friendly and nice."
Cons: "plane is very outdated and for lack of a better word...junky."

Cons: "As a vegan, I wish there was actually a meal I could eat. Very disappointing to have to bring my own food on the flight... Seriously. The crew could not have been more empathetic but they're not creating the menus. Come on Hawaiian - charge me more, just acknowledge we don't all eat meat, cheese and eggs."

Cons: "Food was bad."
Pros: "Nice seats, and staff and good food."
Cons: "Plane should be equipped with wifi."
Cons: "Their claim to be the only airline still serving a meal is very "thin". We got a tiny cup of fruit and a biscuit with a piece of cheese melted on it. That was tasteless and very hard to eat. The one cup of juice (that was mostly ice) was barely enough to wash it down. Also, my disabled wife was not allowed to have the bulkhead seat because it had previously been assigned to a completely healthy child and mother. there should be some kind of priority system for those seats."

Pros: "One small meal in 11 hours and no snacks offered. No bread rolls with the meal Everyone was hungry"

Pros: "I had a flight connection with a new check in and the crew members on land were outstanding and took the time to explain how I could get from terminal to terminal once arriving in LA"

Cons: "Upgrade to comfort seats is not worth the cost."
Pros: "Nice crew"

Cons: "It was great, but returning home was bad"
Pros: "The fact that they re-booked without me having to contact customer service."
Cons: "The connecting flight was cancelled while boarding was in progress at the start of the journey."
Pros: "The have the lotus cookies which is my favorite ."
Pros: "Roomy leg room"
Cons: "Plane to start,delay loading,dlaying taking off.almost hour late arriving."
Pros: "The premium economy service was well worth the extra money. The crew was attentive but not annoying on an overnight service. The food was much better than other long haul internationals. And we arrived rested ready to see the city"
Cons: "Again boarding was just a mush of people. American keeps revising the boarding process but does little to make it actually efficient and orderly. The grouping should have made things better but gate agents don’t consistently reinforce the policy so passengers are all lax."
Pros: "The flight was smooth sailing from the beginning to the end and the meal service was good."

Cons: "Too tight, seat was uncomfortable, food was bland"
Pros: "It was quick and easy."
Cons: "The flight to NY took too long and I missed the connecting flight to DC. There was no one to help speed up the process through security and customs so I could make my flight instead, I was just rebooked for a flight 4 hours later. I have to drive to Richmond, VA tonight to make work tommorrow. I hate this neglect towards time."
Pros: "When I arrived at the airport to see the scheduled 9:30a departure was pushed back to 1pm, the gate crew did a good job of keeping us updated and they even provided lunch! The plane was undergoing maintenance but they found another plane and did not have to cancel the flight, and ultimately got us to our destination safely. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so my half day of travel became a full day, half of which was mostly wasted at the airport. Would rather have been with my family than sitting at the airport."

Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Cons: "We have American Credit Card we thought we were told we would be in Group 1 NOT Group 5!"
Pros: "Spacious seats, excellent service and the food was great for an aeroplane meal. Lots of bathrooms and I was always able to access food and water."

Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"
Pros: "only the low fare; which wasn't worth the experience we endured. i do not plan to use them again!"
Cons: "that was much too long a flight to be to be put through such an inferior"
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Had to pay for bags No snacks No entertainment system"
Pros: "cabin crew was nice and friendly. Very smooth and experienced pilot, nice take off and landings both ways."
Cons: "This was supposed to be an Iberia flight, but with code share nothing is as it seems. (Had to cancel previous flight on Scandinavian air as that turned into some Turkish Charter). These old birds were 30 years old, out of Arizona desert storage...former TWA, so no entertainment or power or anything. And, AA re-confirmation showed flight and ticket canceled! Said Iberia flight, Iberia said AA flight...yikes! Serious glitches and lost data...locator number erased! You see why I tried to take a foreign carrier."
Pros: "The airline was excellent, I am over being cramped in these planes for long flights. Unfortunately living in Australia makes us have to do the long flights."
Cons: "When you are travelling on long flights travelling all night, people in front have seat reclined right back and it is so hard to get out when you need to go to toilet."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, clean passenger lounge and plane cabin"
Cons: "Wish standard seating allowed for more width, better way to avoid reclined seat in front"
Pros: "I fainted on my flight and everyone was really nice and helpful to make sure I was okay."
Pros: "JoMarie was very helpful at LGB. And we eventually arrived at our destination."
Cons: "This was a horrible travel experience, the worst I have ever known. My uncle had died, so I had to search for the soonest and most economical flight in order to attend the funeral. Traveling with me was my aunt (his ex wife) and my cousin (his only daughter). Our initial flight was delayed 'due to mechanical issues' and they said we weren't going to make our connection in Phoenix. So they had to reroute the whole trip, which took about half an hour because all of the flights were full. So instead of flying from LGB - PHX - CLT - CAE and arriving Saturday night, we ended up departing from LAX (which we specifically were trying to avoid) almost 9 hours later. From there to DEN - CLT - GSP arriving Sunday morning. Because of this I had to contact the hotel and let them know that we weren't going to check-in until the next day, but I still ended up having to pay for Saturday night. Then, I had to cancel the rental car and make a new reservation to pick it up at GSP and return at CAE since the hotel was close to CAE, plus the return flight was through CAE. Also, wifi was an additional cost (which we didn't use because of this), the snacks were pitiful, and the seats were very narrow and uncomfortable. I have flown with JetBlue in the past, but on this occasion, last minute flights to South Carolina were prohibitively expensive. That being said, if I had known how bad the experience with American was going to be, I would have gladly paid literally double the price for the JetBlue tickets. And in the future, I will be flying exclusively with JetBlue no matter what the cost."
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Good food."
Cons: "Didn't realize that codeshare meant operation by another airline, so we waited in line to up at the wrong counter, in the wrong terminal and then had to schlep our baggage to the right one. Good thing we were early."
Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate our family"
Cons: "We are a very tall crew and the seats were a bit tight."
Cons: "flight has been cancelled, airline staff gave me hotel vouchers which the hotel would NOT honor, I went back and forth twice because those two hotels would not accomodate american airline passenger vouchers, I end up calling a friend to pick up at the airport she has to drive for an hour just to pick me up, I regret buying a ticket in american airline"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, crew was friendly"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Pros: "I liked the flight, the cabin crew was great, and the pilot nailed their landing."
Cons: "The big one is that when we tried to check in with Qantas, we were informed that we needed to check in with American Airlines and could not check in. Had we not been to the airport 2.5 hours early, we would have had a great shot at missing our flight because of this.As it was, we only had 15 extra minutes from when we got to the gate from when we boarded. Even this email you just sent to me said "rate your Qantas Flight", not rate your American Airlines flight coshared by Qantas. The other big gripe is that we sat on the tarmac for way longer than I would have expected. LAX Sucks."
Cons: "Had another problem with the plane, this was the cargo door and after waiting forever, that was fixed and then they had to refuel, I was an hour and a half late getting to my destination and they kept telling us just a few more minutes."
