Pros: "Great intro and conclusion to a tropical vacation"
Cons: "Temp too cold. Need free blanket"
Cons: "I wish the airline goes back to serving real meals for breakfasts and dinners on the longer flights like going to the islands & returning to mainland. We were expecting warm decent meals like what they use to serve in the past rather than snack type breakfast and sandwiches & chips for dinner, on coach with extended leg room. This is one of the enticing parts of flying this airline."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is fantastic. Great crew, great service. Nice refreshing juice!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. It was fantastic."
Pros: "Jesse helped me get my seats, very fun and friendly!"
Cons: "I really didn’t like the Hawaii check in process. I purchased the ticket through kayak , JAL to Honolulu.Of course I went to JAL counter to check in, but the service lady told me I have to go to Hawaiian airlines. Cause the flight was share by JAL through Hawaiian. What a mess!"
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Lines were too long. Processing of passengers need a massive overhaul."

Pros: "On time,friendly staff."
Cons: "No room,food so so, way charge for entertainment?"
Pros: "330-200 had upgraded lay flat first class seating. Very nice"
Pros: "Very good flight. They offered food and beverages as well as pillows and blankets. Will definitely recommend in the future."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and polite but not as attentive as normal."
Cons: "Food was not worthy of first class, the chairs were old and should recline more for a 10 hr flight if it's not going to lay flat. Not sure if legal prevents it from reclining more."
Pros: "Entertainment available."
Cons: "Seats recline into your lap. Very bad... Flight was way too hot, temperature wise, and no personal Air fans."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable the staff was rude and of zero help. the entire experience affirmed our decision to never use hawaiian airlines again."
Pros: "great movie selection well fed"
Cons: "unfriendly crew to locals but they were very friendly to the japanese passengers. we felt ignored. i called for assistant and didnt get answered for 30mins. when she came to assist she didnt even bother listening to my request and assumed i just wanted sprite. i was nauseated and i wanted sprite n crackers but she only came back with sprite after 10mins. overall in short crew member in this flight needs to have their aloha spirit n be friendly not moody!!!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "My suitcase was sent to wrong airport in Japan"
Cons: "Boarding was the usual slow line of people trying to stuff their bags in the overheads -- not much they can do to improve that I guess. Disembarking seemed to take longer than usual. Didn't open the door right away."
Pros: "Boarding was not announced per zone. Zone 1 and 2 were boarded and then 3-5 all at once creating a huge line. Rated 1 on food and entertainment as short duration of flight didn't include either of those."
Pros: "The courteous flight attendance."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but okay. At least they offered a meal which is nice on such a long flight."
Pros: "Crew was great. Left you alone if you wanted to sleep. Flight was uneventful and that's good."
Cons: "No wifi in the airport or on the plane?! So on a 6+ hour flight no entertainment unless you rent a $15 dollar tablet."
Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."
Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"
Cons: "I was unable to select a seat within the 24 hour window prior to departure, other than paying an $80 upcharge for an aisle seat. On the phone the day prior to departure, I was told by the HA agent that "the airport controilled seat assignments" at that timne so she could not help me get a seat, and that the extra charge option on the website was the only choice I had. This process struck me as bizarre/dishonest. I will not be back unless I can select a seat prior to booking."
Pros: "More leg room."
Pros: "Smooth flight, with premium video somehow! No delays. Good array of movies, new and old."
Cons: "1 food 'option' of "sweet and sour bits of stuff with rice." Felt like public school cafeteria at best. Also not enough of it for a 6 hour flight (and I'm a skinny guy). Knee room in economy is killer for us tall guys (6'3). Swear it gets smaller every year."
Cons: "Pay for ipad"
Cons: "1/2 hour late getting to Hilo"
Pros: "Hawaiian fruit drink. Nice movie selection on Ipad. Nice staff. enough space eg empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Would be nice not to pay so much for Ipads to watch movies, shows. Nicer to have free screens on seats in front. No fault of the airline but there were really long lines at the airport to get through security."
Pros: "Personnel were excellent. All were consistently helpful, cheerful and utterly professional. Our stewardess handled an extremely rude passenger with aplomb. Boarding and take-off were efficient and on time."
Cons: "The seating was wretched, viz., hard bottoms and very tight legroom. Leaving and reentering our seats were extremely difficult due to the very tight space created by the reclined seats in front of us. Reading was made difficult as shadows were cast over our books by the reclined seats. Napping was rendered very difficult due to the uncomfortable seats. On our trip to Oahu we were served meatless meals. The trip to New York City fortunately did include some meat. However, all meals and snacks were of micro-portions."
Pros: "I just liked the feel and ambience. Crew made it nice"
Cons: "My bags not making it to my final destination"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "No usb. no lcd screen"
Pros: "Great staff, on-time schedule."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing cold with constant cold breeze blowing on me. Everyone around me concurred that it was freezing. On United, my trip to Tokyo was very comfortable and warm. Food was much better. I try to avoid flying Hawaiian Airlines when possible."
Pros: "Nice flight!"
Pros: "inflight service consistent good. my top favorite airline."
Pros: "I always love flying Hawaiian, nice planes, nice flight Attendants, they are always on time or early. Their food and beverage service is great too!!!! It's always a pleasure to fly with them. I make multiple trips per year."
Pros: "Flight 22 did not have a gate at SEATAC. We waited over a hour before we could disembark!!"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian option on this flight for the meal, very disappointing. Other Hawaiian flights I've been on have all had one."
Pros: "individual entertainment"
Cons: "system was slow, unresponsive touch screen, issue resolved with system reboot"
Pros: "Best flights I've ever had! Complimentary meals and wine/drinks and snacks. Quick, with great service."
Pros: "Good customer service. Very peaceful environment"
Pros: "The Self Check-in computer terminal would recognize my credit card or my confirmation number. So I had to wait in line 20 minutes st the customer service desk. The staff person said the same problem was happening more frequently. And, I have a Hawaiian Air frequent flyer account. I bought my ticket through KAYAK, maybe that was the problem. Hawaiian Air planes are newer and quieter than Alaska Air. And there serve a real meal for free. They have more leg room too. I like Hawaiian a lot."
Cons: "Six non stop crying kids from Hawaii to seattle. That's all I have 5o say. Unreal."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hrs. Due to mechinal problems"
Pros: "I'm really glad I used Kayak, it was very easy to use the app, it quickly guided me through the fields, booked my flight and excepted my payment the first try"
Pros: "The ground crew and flight crew were great."
Cons: "Would have appreciated easier steps (lower risers) for boarding. Arthritic knee makes it hard for me to manage the high risers between steps. Also having armrests would have made the flight more comfortable."
Pros: "I loved the small craft and easy boarding."
Cons: "Flight is a little slower with a smaller plane, but that was expected."
Pros: "The easy quick comfort"
Pros: "So fast and friendly crew. So much easier to fly to Morgantown, instead of driving. Plus the views from above are so great."
Cons: "Flight could not be better for a commuter connection."
Pros: "Easy passenger seating, and smooth flight"
Cons: "No restroom!"
Pros: "Awesome crew. Simple check-in and boarding. Beautiful, scenic views. A+!"
Pros: "Flight is quick and very smooth. Very pleasant pilots."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and relaxing"
Pros: "Loved the personal service and the view! Smooth flights!"
Pros: "Never flew on a Cessna, loved the scenery!"
Pros: "Vary friendly staff!"
Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and super smooth. No baggage hassles and as we weren't completely full, I actually had leg room. Pilots and airline staff were super professional and courteous. Beats driving any day!"
Cons: "No cons"
Pros: "No TSA!!!"
Pros: "Exactly what I needed, decently priced flight to save hours of drive-time and minimal headache. Yep - smaller plane, smaller airport but anyone not knowing that will be shocked by many other facts in life. Friendly staffers on sire as well as in the cockpit. Well pleased!"
Pros: "No long lines. Easy to talk with pilots. If you make it, your baggage will make it!"
Cons: "Small plane is a little more subject to bumps and turbulence."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight for no reason at all."
Pros: "I was so upset, tired of being lied to and running through airports to make a connecting flight, I can't think of anything I liked."
Cons: "Since I bought my tickets through Kayak, when my flight was canceled the night before I was to leave, it took Hours to get the ticket problem straightened out with me on an earlier flight. I was called back by Kayak minutes after I finally got off the phone to be told That flight was now canceled. Another hour on the phone to get to a 3rd flight arranged. I arrived early and saw everyone sitting around, went to the counter to be told this flight was now delayed. Also was told that the EARLIER Flight I had been changed to, Went off on Time! So I was Lied to. Waited hours as they moved the departure time 4 times! Went through an agonizing security search. Took an hour in a freezing plane to get to Pittsburgh. Missed my flight OF Course and had to pay money for a ticket change and go stand by, barely getting on a connecting flight. I call it the Travel Day From Hell!!!"
Pros: "Not being a person that likes flying this was the coolest experience I ever had. All I had on my mined was to get to Pittsburgh to see my daughter. Didn't know what to expect when I got to Lancaster but it was really easy. I'm going to do it again. Hour and a half plan ride is better then 15 hour drive"
Cons: "Really can't think of anything. I should up 2 hours early to figure out what I need to do and everyone from southern airlines and the TSA took care of everything."
Cons: "The flight never occurred and wasn't told."
Cons: "Return flight home was cancelled and not communicated. Poor customer service to find out about a refund. Never flying with southern again."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "I had this airline booked several times (4 flights to be exact) and every. single. time. the flight was either cancelled or changed in some way. In the first instance, the second leg was moved three hours ahead, causing the second leg to depart before the first one, so I had to cancel it. In the second, the first leg was moved three hours before the initial departure time, and I had to cancel it due to scheduling issues. The third time I tried to take this airline, the first leg was cancelled completely and in turn my return flight was also cancelled. Each time, they informed be THE NIGHT BEFORE the flight was supposed to leave that it was either cancelled or modified. Had I not booked all four of these flights at once months in advance, I wouldn't have booked it again after the first instance. Do you know how expensive it is to find alternate transportation THE NIGHT BEFORE you are trying to travel? I will never attempt to fly this airline again. They have a lot of work to do to gain the trust of their passengers and they are not doing it right by any means in my opinion."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "I never even took the flight - the layover was moved ahead by two hours THE DAY OF THE FLIGHT causing me to cancel my flight, since the layover was then leaving before my first flight even took off! At that time, alternate flights were >$250 one way and I HAD to be at my destination the next day for a wedding. Southern Airways caused me hours of time spent planning and additional money to find alternate transportation. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND -- I am never flying with this airline again!"
Pros: "Received full refund for ticket."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no reason provided."
Pros: "The price of the ticket was very reasonable."
Cons: "I traveled with a colleague from Dulles to Morgantown. Three issues arose: 1. We could not find the ticket counter at Dulles, and no one we asked knew where it was. This could easily be resolved by adding info about how to find the counter to the airline website. 2. My colleague's return flight was canceled and she was never notified. 3. When I went to check in for my return flight, I was told that I was not on the boarding list. It took 30 minutes to get me added to the list even though I had my confirmation. When I asked for an explanation the man at the ticket counter shared: "They're crazy [the customer service]. This happens all the time." Complete incompetence."
Pros: "Great Crew, very pleasant. It was nice to be away from all the frustrations common in the main airports and to get to wait with my family right up to boarding time."
Cons: "The plane left over 4 hours after departure time. It also took a while to figure out that this airline is not based within the main airport (at both DFW and MEM airports at least) and the address for the actual boarding place was not included in any communication prior to the flight. No compensation for inconveniences caused."
Pros: "Everyone was super friendly"
Cons: "I was the only person on the flight. That was kinda weird. But it was a smooth, easy flight and I would definitely use them again."
Pros: "I just loved Southern. It was so easy. I avoided the hassle of the main airport, the parking problems and the waiting in line. Everyone was so friendly. I will definitely fly Southern again!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and comforting. I was nervous because it was my first time on a 9 seater plane but the ride was surprisingly smooth"
Cons: "I never even ended up on the plane. The departure time came and went with no communication from the desk agents I was sitting 10 feet away from. No communication about the flight being delayed was given until I asked. It was 3 hours later when they unceremoniously cancelled the flight. And because it was weather-related I didn't receive any of my money back. Worst travel day ever."
Pros: "PERSONAL TREATMENT!"
Pros: "The flight was cancelled No apology or compensation"
