Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Boarding process was messy"
Cons: "Just a few too many announcements and adverts, a bit noisy. But wonderful food and bev service and timely, comfortable flights."
Pros: "It’s wonderful to fly like our grandparents did with the style & comfort along with the service they enjoyed!! I cannot think of any other airline that serves a meal and on going snacks. I feel I got first class service (which I cannot afford) for a coach rate! Stepping onto the plane you get a sense of the islands. I’d recommend this airline to anyone!!"
Cons: "Being a 6 ft woman, leg room is important for me, which I had, but the seat where a bit close together."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Every other flight I have been on does not make you pay for entertainment, headphones, or blankets. I will not fly Hawaiian again."
Pros: "Great service on the flight! Very nice."
Cons: "Sad that there weren't free movies. Only some Hawaiian Air programs and things about Hawaii."
Pros: "Boarding was great, seats were not too cramped, flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Hawaiian Air changed our seat assignments which I did not find out about until checking in for our flight the night before. My wife and I were 20 rows apart and we were moved from aisle seats to window seats. Flight was fully booked so no way to change. The aircraft did not change, so I am unsure why seat assignments changed."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Getting to our seats I was allowed to move one row up to an exit row which was great! Service by attendants was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "No vegetarian food and also the flight was late by almost 3 hrs so all our plans in honolulu on that was ruined."
Pros: "Very courteous. Clean. On time."
Cons: "Have to pay for movies. Basically no entertainment for a long flight."
Cons: "We ended up upgrading because kayak doesn’t let you assign a seat and we were the last to get a seat on a very full flight. I will never use Kayak again."
Pros: "Everything was fine in general."
Cons: "Turbulance but pilot did not addeess it by saying he would change altitude to avoid it."
Cons: "We purchased tickets to Maui months in advance. We chose our seats. The morning before our flight we printed boarding passes and paid for check bags. That night, approximately 12 hours before take off I received a notice from Google stating the flight hand been cancelled. To this day I have never received any communication from the airline stating the flight was cancelled. I called Hawaiian and asked about the cancellation. After waiting for the customer service person to find out what the status was, she simply said there was scheduling issues. The best she could offer was a flight the next day. We lost a whole day of our vacation and lost a significant mount of money. Hawaiian offered no compensation and did not seem at all apologetic for canceling an entire flight at the last minute for "scheduling issues." We will do our best never to fly Hawaiian again. They clearly do not value their customers."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient, professional service. Super smooth flight and great service."
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "A 6 hours flight and no food? Seriously??? Incredible lousy service for a vacation-airline!"
Pros: "Crews were helpful and polite."
Cons: "I was wondering if you had to pay for movies cause you get free food... I assumed there were free movies but they weren’t so I was not prepared."
Pros: "They offered a free light breakfast and they treated us great"
Cons: "I was annoyed with the fact that everything cost money. The women next to me asked for water and the flight attendant said that she could pay for it or wait for breakfast. I was thirsty on the plane but I was not about to pay $8 for a bottle of water. I was also not happy that almost all the movies (with the exception of three about the sea) had to be purchased. Most planes now have at least an app with movies on it for free, especially on 6 hour flights."
Cons: "Not clear what line to stand in signs would help Such as if you had a boarding pass you can just stand in the line that will give your baggage tag versus just standing in the general line"
Cons: "no on onboard at-seat refreshment service, meals were inadequqte to be called meals, seating legroom poor. Unlikely I would reserve HawIian in future."
Pros: "The airplane had an outlet to charge your phone and eat seat had its own tv. The service was really good and everyone was super nice. I also liked that they showed you were on the map the plane was."
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room"
Pros: "So so happy I got the upgrade to 1st class! The seats were comfy, the flight attendants were so kind and the food and beverages were delicious."
Pros: "food was free direct flight, smooth ride"
Cons: "1) quality of food below average 2) need to charge for blankets, pillows and movies- in comparing with delta, I'd prefer to have free blankets, pillows, and movies than free food 3) seats are definitely not as comfortable as delta flights (these new planes or airbuses are actually worse than the old planes, very disappointed at the quality of seats/cushions) 4) customer service check in agent at LAX was not helpful and also the phone customer service representatives (spoke to 2 different employees who were based out of the Philippines) are not helpful as I had a seat already printed and marked on my itinerary when purchasing my ticket, but when I checked in I was told that I would need to pay $80 for the seats that were originally marked"
Pros: "Variety of drinks"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours Not serving food and snacks until 2.5 hours after boarding even though it was already 4.5 hours after lunchtime and everyone was starving Flight attendants not responding to the service requests at all"
Pros: "We were able to upgrade our seating to first class which made all the difference in the comfort level of the long flight."
Cons: "The food was okay but could have been better. We had booked a separate flight from Kona to Honolulu and then took another flight from Honolulu to Papeete. The customer service agent in Kona was able to book out baggage straight through to Papeete which saved us the hassle of picking up baggage in Honolulu and checking it in again."
Pros: "Wow talk about inflight service our flight home on American may now seem sub par"
Cons: "Not enough leg room though I’m 6 foot 5 most of the time there isnot"
Pros: "The food and hospitability"
Cons: "Entertainment options were few and outdated"
Pros: "Crew kept the cabin temperature warm. Little air flow or circulation. Seats uncomfortable. Must pay for entertainment."
Cons: "You need to pay for blanket, movies and even musics. It makes your company cheap. Selling Master Card program in the middle of the flight. Too much up sells."
Cons: "Every time the flight attendant walk by there was a strange odor, maybe onions. When they past out some bags of Hawaiian potato chips, the bag had that odor and we then thought it must be the chips and from her being around them. We decided not to eat them and carried then off in our carry on baggage The next day I was hungry and decided to eat a bag. The odor was gone and the chips didn't smell at all Turns out it was the flight attendant. Maybe the type of food she consumes or her clothes were around a lot of garlic and onions Hope she is not on our return flight"
Cons: "I bought these tickets about two months ago. There was no option for seat selection. Despite the fact I bought two tickets when we finally got our boarding passes we were twelve rows apart. I tried to call Jet Blue (the actual airline) and they said they couldn't do anything over the phone. I went up to the gate and they said sorry, it was a full flight. When the cabin door closed, the seat next to me was empty, but we were taking off so I couldn't at that time move my wife. When they reached cruising altitude and they turned off the fasten seatbelts sign, I went back to where my was sitting but she was asleep."
Pros: "Crew was the best part of the trip! They were courteous, friendly, efficient & helpful! Always with a smile!"
Cons: "Food was mediocre but it was FREE! The last of the airlines to offer that! Hooray for them!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 9 hours for software issues for their incom. This seemed to me something that could be fixed faster, and it greatly impacted my trip. I understand delays for weather or hardware."
Pros: "They got us to our destination safely. Which , of course is the most important thing. Got us there on time as well. Did not use in flight entertainment so cannot rate."
Cons: "First class seats are miserably uncomfortable, barely wider than a coach seat. Only difference I Can tell is that it has more padding. Foot rest is unbelievably unfunctional. Food was good but no wine or refill of the other beverages was offered with the meal. Flight crew as polite, but wooden and unengaging. Baggage claim at destination was efficient. I only fly with this airline , and in first class, because I have sooooo many miles.. if that weren't the case I would try someone else. Who knows , maybe they would not be any better."
Pros: "Supporting local airlines."
Cons: "Although "complimentary" meal, it does not cater to anyone with dietary restrictions/allergies. Only the in-flight snack was labeled with ingredients. I use quotes, because many people are willing to pay extra to fly Hawaiian Airlines, due to their "complimentary" meal. Flight attendants were less accommodating than I remember. They asked me to perform simple tasks that they usually have done as hosts. (I wouldn't have bothered to ask them for anything had I known they were going to give me instructions on how to go about helping myself)."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff; smooth flight, served a meal!!! Great movie selections"
Cons: "Tight seats."
Cons: "Pay for entertainmen"
Pros: "Hawaiian granted me an isle seat hat I requested after purchasing the ticket. I also appreciated the meal that was provided at no cost."
Cons: "I would have liked an "oldies" channel on the music program. I'm 70. (:"
Pros: "Our brakes were not up to par to land in Kauai. Detour to Honolulu. Sucked!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Virgin airline carrier, Comfortable and cost flight"
Cons: "Staff a little unfriendly"
Cons: "Attendant was not polite"
Pros: "The people in the plane are fine."
Cons: "Hawaiian air's customer service does NOT exist. When I had a problem and needed a simple change on a ticket because documented medical emergency they would not help. I had to purchase a second ticket for the same flight which cost me 1,100.00. I will forever bad mouth this airline until I get satisfaction which will never come."
Pros: "I paid extra for a window seat. Didn’t get it. The plane was hot. The seats were uncomfortable. When we landed we were stuck on the ground for an hour waiting for a bus to take us to the terminal."
Cons: "I wish I was on a different airline on the way home."
Cons: "Slow boarding, not able to select seat in advance"
Pros: "They bumped me off they also told me I had no insurance when I thought I bought the insurance from him flight. They are talking to see if I can get on the plane for Monday at 1:30 so I'm still at the LAXM very upset when I thought I bought insurance I had a important business in Paris and then I was heading out to Iraq to our mission day so I'm very upset right now thank you is there something you can do to make sure"
Pros: "Crew was nice, fresh frangipani flower a nice touch. Seats in economy were BAD. No room and uncomfortable. Breakfast was nice fruit and the omelette was pretty basic"
Cons: "Legroom is tight and narrow..smaller than your average space in coach."
Cons: "I have purchased the priority pass but it didn't work. Was very disappointed. I could have saved money by not purchasing it."
Pros: "The crew was astonishingly good. I really was amazed with the whole crew sense of service and kindness."
Cons: "Hard to say.. really"
Pros: "The crew's service, the food and availability of food and drink throughout the whole flight."
Cons: "The cabin temperature, it was too warm."
Pros: "Would definitely fly Ait Tahiti Nu again."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Service was Great, Food was good."
Cons: "Coke zero was not complimentary"
Pros: "The attendants seem very happy to be where they were. Very friendly and helpful, everyone seemed in a great mood and happy to be with us. the only bad thing was they ran out of salmon before they got to us."
Pros: "Very solid experience and comfortable"
Pros: "I was able to pick a seat with no one next to me and gathered 2 blankets and 4 pillows and sleep pretty well. I also appreciated boarding back to front and departing on time! Woo! TV Screens were new and updated which was also nice."
Cons: "The movie selection was a lot of sad and intense dramas. A few more comedy's and light hearted films would have been preferable."
Pros: "They board back to front which saves a lot of hassle with overhead bags and such and keeps things moving. I appreciated that all the flight attendants spoke French and English and were very helpful when I needed anything. My flights to and from Tahiti were both smooth sailing. My flight back was a red eye and was quiet so I was able to sleep most of the way."
Cons: "Whoa. That food was TERRIBLE. I'm usually lenient with free airplane food but wow, I don't even know what some of it was. I my second meal looked like fish and turned out to be pork (I think?). They also only came around with the beverage cart once in the 8 hour flight (just before our first meal); I had to ring my call button to get water. The plane was pretty dated as well. I've seen worse but the screens were dated and all of the movies were fairly depressing. First, I'd suggest a couple more comedy's or rom-coms. Even a couple extra family friendly cartoons would be preferable to all the war/drama/dark options. Second, I'd suggest having the movies on demand rather than play one after another where passengers have to scroll through channels and keep catching movies part way through. A simple solution would be to have WiFi and streaming on flights which was also not available. This should be expected with international flight and would allow for on demand movies and music rather than the dated system currently in place."
Cons: "Location of terminal."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and food was good. The leg space was decent also, always an important factor for tall people on long flights"
Cons: "The boardin required a long walk to a remote terminal and then quit a long drive to the plane"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Seats very thin with little to no cushioning. Seats way too close so that when a seat reclines in front, you wind up almost chewing on the seat in front. My seat was broken and did not recline. Should receive some compensation for this"
Pros: "Easy boarding in Bora Bora, & speedy arrival in Moorea"
Cons: "High cost to make any changes to a reservation"
Pros: "Nice crew. I liked the packers of socks, earbids and mask."
Cons: "The entertainment system was a little outdated. Movies should be on demand, and no tv was offered."
Pros: "Faa’A International Airport is NOT air conditioned and there can be long lines in the check-in counter for economy class. If you are flying Business Class, the VIP Lounge is a must. It is the only air conditioned room at the airport."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Comfortable airline, good food, friendly service. I would take it again."
Cons: "I don't know if this is representative but we were late both ways (2 hrs and 1 hr). Differently from other airline I've used to do this trip they don't go and offer water during the flight. You can go to get some drinks yourself of course but this is not always easy when your neighbor is sleeping."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "We waited in a shuttle for 30 minutes to be transported to the plane. We then had a three hour delay on the tarmac. Were not once offered water or refreshments during the 3-hour delay, and were only given two brief updates. During the 8 hour flight, refreshments were offered only twice. The food was ok - not terrible, not great. By the time they got to us (row 27), they didn’t have both meal options available. We took what we could get. And, all this after paying $1500 per person for our economy seats. I can fly LAX to Bali for 1/3 the price."
Pros: "great options for entertainment."
Cons: "The plane food was horrible."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable for an eight hour flight. We slept most of it attendants were courteous and professional"
Cons: "I didn’t like the orange marmalade breakfast. We don’t eat pork ham was on the omelet"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the food wasn't good at all, because I was traveling with a cast on my left foot I asked for a front seat a week before my flight and when I asked at the counter at the airport they say that they wouldn't be able to give me a front seat, the lady at the counter wasn't nice at all, she didn't help and it felt that she wasn't trying to help me or to manege any other solution."
Pros: "Very kind and helping crew ! Love they positive attitude and energy"
Cons: "Food need to be improve - especially for people who don't like or eat meat"
Cons: "Better food selection, especially for vegetarians. Also, get gingerale!"

Pros: "It was a very easy and fast check in. The service was super nice, beautiful and very professional."

Cons: "No complaints come to mind"
Pros: "That i didn't have to pau for alcohol."
Cons: "I thought I was going to be greeted with something as we walked on board. The video definitely makes the plane look a lot bigger."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly positive, helpful, and cheerful."
Cons: "There were very few movie choices compared to similar flights with other airlines"
Pros: "This was a wonderful flying experience for me. I was happy with the selection of entertainment, the seats were comfortable, and the crew was friendly. I also enjoyed the food!"
Cons: "We spent a long time on the tarmac at LAX. The explanation was that they were making sure everyone's bags got on board...which I felt was very odd. We left late, and arrived in Pape'ete 45 minutes late. Otherwise, the experience was excellent."
Pros: "Food and service were beter than expected"
Cons: "To little space between Seats in economy or maybe I'm to tall"
Pros: "Lots of space in economy, food was terrific and crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Passengers perhaps aren't accustomed to wearing deoderant... stinky!"
Cons: "Air Tahiti Nui does not have online seat assignment. You have to call to get a seat assignment. total waste of time. Secondly there is no way to check arrival info online in Tahiti. You have to call the airport."
Pros: "Niecelnie relatert atm on board"
Cons: "Late , but no support on the Gate. Info about time we could use w. missing."
Pros: "On time, friendly hosts."
Cons: "The food was not quality. One fresh fruit option was served; otherwise, lots of starch. They said there would be drinks available, but I could not find them."
Pros: "More space"
Pros: "Everything in our business class seats were wonderful. Loved to be able to elevate my legs. Watched movies, ate wonderful food creatively designed. Staff went above and beyond.No crying babies!"
Cons: "The beds did not lay flat to sleep, making it hard to sleep on your sides. Please convert them to lie totally flat like Singapore air or British airways. The champagne was a bit bitter. The only champagne I've ever liked was on Singapore airs business class to frankfurt, germany."
Pros: "My wife and I have planned a trip to Bora-Bora since we got married in the 80s. I had said that I would not make that long trip without a first class ticket and followed through with this our recent trip. Although the ticket was quite expensive, it was worth every penny. Air Tahiti Nui really understands what "First Class" should be like -they pamper you! They deliver course after course of amazingly good quality food and more drinks than you can possibly consume. All of the flight attendants were sincerely interested in making sure we were all happy...a wonderful experience! darn worth the investment! highly recommended! And remember, this is just the lead-up to arriving in Tahiti; things will only get better when you disembark."
Cons: "There were NO disappointments"
Pros: "My bag was destroyed, and I was told I had to check my back pack in which was BS n was charged $100 to check it in... getting in contact with customer service about the issue is impossible. The crews customer service was satisfactory, you can tell they don't want to be there. I will never fly them again."
Cons: "It got me to my destination in peace."
Pros: "According to our reservation we had seat assignments (not marked seat requested) but when we checked in they assigned us seats in the back of the plane. When we showed theconfirmation and seat assignments they checked and said a family with children has priority so they gave our 2 seats to them. However when we got on the plane we saw that it was not a family but 2 separate individuals. Not sure why they got our seats but it obviously was not because of a child. Another flight with them several days earlier we also got our seats reassigned but the flight confirmation on that leg said seats requested so when they reassigned us we could justify the airline thought that request is different than assigned."
Pros: "No agent at gate. I was there 1hour and 15 minutes before the flight. No one was available to help me. Not even kayak!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Flight was empty."
Cons: "It was freezing. I was wearing long pants, two sweat haired, and two blankets and I was still cold. The movies were not great. The headrests were super uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew, cleanliness."
Cons: "1 our sears were change from 2 aisles to the last 2 seats of the airplane without the checkin counter informing us. These seats didn't recline. 2 food was much below average. 3 my tv screen was very blurry"

Cons: "Seats were extremely outdated- circa saved by the bells"
Pros: "I love everything with Air Tahiti Nui."
Cons: "The agent at the counter was unpleasant. I had the impression that I bothered her"
