Pros: "Good crew on both trips"
Cons: "No crying children"
Pros: "Nice attentive crew"
Pros: "The business seats were comfortable & our service excellent"
Cons: "There was no lunch"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the seats were uncomfortable and the air cabin was very cold."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, cancelled then on again. Communication regarding the flight changes were very confusing and had guest running though the airport not knowing what to do. My suitcase was busted and destroyed.There were not enough blankets for everyone in the cold plane. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Baggage handlers in Honolulu let you down. We arrived 10 minutes early but absolutely no bags in baggage claim for more than 30 minutes"
Cons: "Our BOS-SFO flight was delayed several times that would have caused us to miss our connection to HNL. Instead we were diverted to IAH where we spent the night at our expense. We are still in Houston awaiting our return to HNL. Too long a delay."
Pros: "The crew was great. The seats, though cramped, were nice to have electronic device holders instead of built in screens."
Cons: "The flight was 9 hours and they didn't provide any meals. That's ridiculous. When I fly with any other airline for over 7 hours I've always gotten 1 meal, if not 2. The food for purchase however, was very good. But they should not expect you to pay."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
Pros: "Beautiful view"
Cons: "One of our bags didn’t make it. We dropped them off together. We still don’t have the missing luggage."
Cons: "No screens in seat back; WiFi not working"
Pros: "Liked that they provided a blanket."
Cons: "The wifi entertainment did not function for the entire flight."
Pros: "Excellent crew members."

Pros: "Really great service! Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Spotty Wi-Fi. Only on an American flight"
Cons: "Crew was not visible Seat space was very tight"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Everything else and being really late"
Pros: "quick overall flight"
Cons: "No food options other than purchased snacks on an 8-9 hour flight"
Pros: "All of the flight attendants except for Linda were nice and friendly. The entertainment selection was great and made a 10 hour flight go quickly."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant named Linda on the flight who was very condescending. I tapped her on the shoulder for a request and she told me it was not appropriate to do so because “as flight attendants, we get tapped so often.” Then she skipped over me when serving the snack options because she didn’t make “eye contact” with me although my tray was down and I had my wallet and credit card ready for payment. I have been flying with United to go home to Hawaii for over a decade and have never been treated so poorly by a flight attendant on this airline. I am seriously considering flying with Delta, Southwest, and JetBlue exclusively from now on after this experience."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Crew very efficient and nice"
Cons: "Being it’s a flight from Japan a more Japanese meal would’ve been better"
Cons: "The food options are poor at best and it's really sad that they don't offer anything for free. My ticket wasn't cheap so I can't imagine they're saving me money on my ticket by not offering better food on that long of a flight."
Cons: "The seating, being separated from my wife!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "They didn't have the food I wanted by the time they got to the back of the plane"
Pros: "Extra legroom was good, seat were ok, and the overall improvement in general was much better than I last flew United.no"
Cons: "wifi does not work on this route. I have used it on cross Atlantic flights yet LAX to HNL didn't have it."
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"
Cons: "Crew members were not friendly. There was no in-flight entertainment available, and no snacks that were complimentary."
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: "Non-stop flight. We had an early arrival!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "I did not like how much it was to watch tv. Could have provided a blanket."
Cons: "Simply, EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "The food being offer was good"
Cons: "The experience as a whole was rather disappointing"
Cons: "Had to buy entertainment"
Cons: "No free meals"
Cons: "Crew and food could be better"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly for the most part."
Cons: "On both flghts we requested a bassinet for our 3 month old. We were told on the phone if one was available we were able to have it. Both flights had bassinets but we weren't allowed access to them. On our first leg the bassinet was in economy plus and we were economy. On the way home our fight was downsized to a smaller plane and the airline was too busy trying to cut 25 people off the fight they weren't able to give us a seat where the bassinet would be. We asked several flight attendants and got different answers from each one."
Cons: "Honestly, the customer service with United was in need of serious improvement, from the moment we checked our bags to the time we were in flight, we were given very poor service, the man at baggage check in was extremely condescending, acting like we should know everything about United's processing instead of just helping us with our needs in the first place and it added unnecessary extra stress to our travels from Colorado to Hawaii. I don't even want to blame the employees as it was very obvious that they hated their jobs and just wanted the shift to be done with; something needs to be addressed about how they can accommodate both employees and paying customers alike. Let's just say I can't wait until Hawaiian Airlines expands to Denver flights so we never have to deal with United again, as this is the only reason we used this airline."
Pros: "They offered complementary snacks and water at the gate when the flight was delayed by 2 hours for mechanical reasons. After such a long and tiring day, when I went to buy a drink onboard, the flight attendant didn't charge me. It was done as a courtesy for the lengthy delays. This was much appreciated and honestly made the irritation with the delays disappear. It's amazing what a little thing like that can do for a person. All the flight attendants were gracious and helpful. Overall, they made the flight good."
Cons: "I had to run to make this connecting flight due to the previous flight leaving an hour late, only to learn the flight was delayed. It was delayed 2.5 hours for maintenance."
Pros: "It was on time, the landing was beautiful!!"
Cons: "Selection of snacks were not appealing."
Cons: "The 4 hour delay due to "wifi" issue caused us to miss our connecting flight to Kona, Hawaii! We thought it would be a quicker and shorter flight buying a direct flight from United from IAD to HNL then to Kona, but we were wrong! We are upset and disappointed that it caused us a day of our vacation! We will avoid United for future travels!"
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Food (chicken) was utterly disgusting. I found the seats rather uncomfortable -- my back was really hurting at the end of the flight and that isn't normal."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
Pros: "The spacious seats and entertainment on the plane."
Cons: "The cost of food products on the plane. Could have been better food for the price."
Cons: "personal entertainment connection was spotty."
Cons: "How rude the women airline attendants are /the extreme lack of leg room"
