Pros: Seats comfy. Crew super nice. Food good. Great beverages. Just really wonderful.
Cons: Less salty snack option.
Pros: Nice new plane
Cons: No free entertainment even once you downloaded the app and food options would have been a nice touch
Pros: I love the energy of Hawaiian Airlines I truly feel the Aloha
Cons: My bag was lost ~ that's frustrating. This is an aspect of my travel, but overall my flight & experience was groovy.
Pros: First time I flew with Hawaiian and it was the best service ever! Oakland to final destination Lihue. Definitely my number one airline and will be referring folks!
Cons: I booked 6 months in advance to ensure a lower price, 2 days before the flight, the prices were 50% what I paid for them and priceline refused to give a price adjustment because it was more than 24 hours since I booked the flight. Hawaiian air refused to give any additional accommodations, priceline refused any additional accommodations and I am still upset.
Pros: Friendly staff. Nothing negative to say. It’s a flight with 100+ passengers and people want to be babied. Enjoy your time and quit complaining about things out of an Airlines control and your crappy planning.
Cons: Seats selected at booking were reassigned to back of the plane.We were traveling with another couple, their reassigned seats were not near us. Very disappointing
Pros: Pleasant crew, okay food, seats comfortable and enough room for luggage.
Cons: No entertainment
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: Left on time arrived a little late because weather. It was windy
Pros: Comfort seating
Cons: Plane left late and arrived late 7
Pros: One of the worse flight experiences, if not the worst. The crew was indifferent and disrespectful to our dietary restrictions on a 5 HOUR FLIGHT! It’s worth noting that when I say “our”, I also refer to my visibly pregnant wife. We asked one crew member for water (WATER!) and were told they ran out. Moments later, the same crew member was passing out water bottles to other passengers. There’s much more to say about our flight, but if theses two instances don’t prompt a change, then the rest won’t matter anyway.
Cons: Did not like anything about this flight!
Pros: It was nice to get a small meal on the 6hour flight as well as a complimentary drink for all
Cons: This was by far one of the oldest planes I have been on in several years. Gawain is known for their entertainment, but this planes had only shared screens and our radio/sound was not working including the lights and call buttons. Upon reporting this to a flight attendant, I was told they would return to work on it, but it wasn't until I reported it again that another attendant worked with us to (unsuccessfully) attempt to restart the system. In the end we just had no entertainment for the flight.
Pros: Service on board plane was good.
Cons: Too warm in the plane. Not the greatest thing with a full flight and lots of body heat!
Pros: Sufficient overhead bin space. Mostly very pleasant crew.
Cons: Although airline recommends arriving two hours before flight, staff not ready for booking. One crew member a bit grumpy.
Pros: Loved the comfort of the seats and the in flight movies!
Pros: Lousy food, why bother. Nice that they gave us a drink before we landed.
Cons: no vegetarian food options so all the other passengers ate except for me and my travel partner
Pros: The crew was friendly and helpful.
Pros: Loved the ease of boarding, the flight was on time, the crew were friendly and accommodating, the food was good and i was not as nervous as usual because the atmosphere was calm and welcoming.
Cons: i spent money to upgrade our seating. The upgrade was supposed to include an entertainment package, that never materialized. We entertained ourselves but it was disappointing.
Pros: The crew in the boarding area were gracious, kind, and as informative as they could be in this situation.
Cons: 1) They neglected to check and fix their navigation system. So, we all had to wait 3+ hours for them to do that on our time. 2) They gave us a voucher but only for food. Due to the long wait time, many of us wanted to purchase a magazine or newspaper to read, but that wasn't allowed. 3) My seat was stuck in the upright position. So I was forced to sit that way for the six-hour flight. 4) Passengers were forced to watch and listen to commercials - ridiculous when we're paying them to fly me not pester me with selling. *Conclusion: I'll never fly Hawaiian Airlines again.*
Pros: I am so happy you sent a survey! I have been wanting to sen a compliment to the women that was at the gate counter the day of my flight 11/30/17 flt 41. I watched her handle multiple difficult situations. In a severely stressful moment insane her handle with such grace and professionalism. She deserves a personal pat on the back and a raise:)
Cons: Customer service
Pros: very spacious legroom Friendly crew
Cons: Wished entertainment system was free like other airlines.
Pros: Crew were nice. Big plane with lots of overhead storage was helpful.
Cons: Picked my seats online when I booked and was told I didn't have reserved seats during check in. Had to get seats assigned last minute over the phone (very last row), and the customer service experience on the phone was awful.
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: Smooth flight, friendly staff.
Cons: Update to inflight services, a little outdated and would like to see more selection.
Pros: Let me think, food was free. Some of the staff was friendly. Glad was the flight was quick, because I don't think I could deal with that staff anymore than the few interactions I had with them.
Cons: Lets start with the boarding process. Its not organized and just a huge mess. This zone boarding thing is very old school and no where is there a screen saying which zone is boarding, you have to listen for the quiet announcement and hope you heard it correctly, because they only say it once. When on board, the staff I dealt with was having a bad day or something, because slamming drinks down on tray tables and cups in to a half full cup must be the norm. The passenger next to me mentioned that the staff was very rude to me, as I was pretty passive at the time. The seats are somewhat comfortable, but when the staff tells you not to lean back because the lady behind you doesn't have enough leg room, then whats the point of paying for comfort plus. The food may be free, but if you want some sort of entertainment, TV shows or movies, it isn't free. Everything must be paid for on this flight. You pay a pretty penny to get on these flights only for them to up-sell you on everything! This airline needs some major changes to staff and technology.
Pros: I appreciated the free meal and the free mai tai since not that many companies offer free meals to customers anymore.
Cons: The crew lacked an "aloha spirit." We were excited to go to hawaii but the crew didnt seem friendly. When I asked if I could pass thru their area to get to the bathroom on the other aisle, I think I saw the stewardess roll her eyes as she got up out of her chair. It couldve been because it was the 0700 flight. Older plane. Its one with one big screen in the middle and tiny little screens scattered throughout. Didnt show a movie - instead showed clips of hawaiian singers. Chairs were rickety and hard to lay back or put forward.
Pros: Very friendly, fed us nice breakfast and snack later. Weee always offering water very nice of a flight. The free rum punch was a nice touch. Seats reclined nicely and ple t leg roomin coach
Pros: I booked late, but I got a seat pretty close to the one I chose, and they made sure I got an aisle, like I specified. They gave us a complimentary glass of rum punch (if you're 21+) and I love this drink! Sweet and satisfying. I believe they do this on all their flights.
Cons: This didn't affect me personally, but you do have to pay $15 extra to use their entertainment system. I'm glad I downloaded a movie and some tv shows to my tablet before going.
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 think it is ridiculous that the airline provided in seat entertainment but all movies and shows needed to be purchased
Pros: Crew was really nice and the service was great. Food was better than what you could quickly grab at the airport and appreciated the frequent beverage service.
Cons: It seemed unecessarily cold and was a little surprised that entertainment cost extra on a long flight. The only thing complimentary were a few promo videos for Hawaii and the radio.
Pros: Staff was very nice. plane was clean. We left on time.
Cons: Tv was broke for my seat. All they offered was a different seat away from my wife and son.
Pros: There was one male worker who tried to bring me extra coleslaw cause he saw the other flight attendants not offer me anything instead of a meat centered meal. I appreciated that but didn't catch his name.
Cons: The workers were so rude - especially a woman named Mi. they had no vegetarian options on the plane for food and basically laughed at me when I asked for it. They had no free entertainment at all not even a movie for everyone on the main monitors. They asked for volunteers to check their bags and I volunteered and when I made a connecting flight to Kauai (final stop Oahu which is a 35 min flight) I tried to switch my flight to an earlier one because I realized That I had a four hour layover before my 35 min flight -_- and they said that I would have been able to but since I checked my carry on I couldn't. And they said it was because my bag would get there much later than me - which I was upset about but understood. Fast forward 4 1/2 hours later and I land on Oahu. My bag is sitting at the terminal because it came over on a plane that got there before me. Totally unhappy - I fly to California and back almost every month and I've never had an experience like this
Pros: Helpful, friendly and informative; free breakfast;
Cons: Would be nice to get one free movie with long flight.
Cons: We boarded a hot plane. The A/C was turned on then we smelled kerosene. We de-boarded and sat - the gate crew were fine but really didn't know what was going on. After repeated erroneous emails from HAL, the flight was actually scrubbed until HAL could get a crew and plane from Honolulu. The emails actually gave us new departure times that had already passed!) Thanks to some terrific work by the HAL gate crew, we were able to get seats on an Alaska flight. Five hours later than our original schedule but much better than our HAL schedule which finally left 7+ hours after schedule.
Pros: Everyone was very friendly. The offered food, drinks and entertainment without charging as an extra.
Pros: Nothing really.
Cons: There was a late gate change which sent passengers to the other side of the terminal and resulted in a 30 minute delay.
Cons: Let me start by saying.. I never ever leave negative comments; and two, I apologize for th long winded message.. but I'm still fuming!! My husband and I both had smaller roller carry on bags traveling with us. When we approached the plane through the gate, the Hawaiian Airlines staff told us there wasn't anymore room for our bags, and that they would have to be checked. Whenever this has been done on other airlines, they always return your bag to you as soon as you get off the plane... not this time! Our bags were sent to baggage claim, and we had a connecting flight with a very short layover window! This means that we were FORCED to leave the airport area, retrieve our bags from baggage claim, go through security AGAIN and almost miss our connecting flight! I expressed to the crew immediately after we got off the plane our situation and that we were never even given an option to give them our bags as we would have never opted in for going all the way out and all the way back in to get to our connection (SO stressful!!). Make a long story short, the staff lied to us about where our bags were going, were NOT helpful when I told them that we needed our bags, and showed no concern or sympathy that we may miss out connecting flight because of their mistake. Winded, mad and extremely late.. we barely got on the connection.. NO THANKS TO THE HAWAIIAN AIRLINES STAFF! Will never fly Hawaiian again!
Pros: Friendly service x
Cons: There were no blankets supplied so I would have packed one. Seats are uncomfortable Otherwise all was good
Cons: Was not informed of a flight delay, representative at the gate was very unfriendly, seat was changed and was told choosing a seat online was only a courtesy, could not rent entertainment on the aircraft but was never told it had to be done at the gate, airplane seat did not recline. The worst flight I have been on in a long time.
Pros: staff were great and friendly and helpful
Cons: not a big deal but 2 things: 1) plane was a bit dirty in between the seats. 2) we also were in the terminal but getting food when we heard our names on the overhead pager saying they were going to close the gate in 5 minutes and if we didn't get on we'd be left behind. That was 30 minutes before take off that they were going to close the gate. We rushed over and ended up boarding and then waiting on the plane forever. not sure whey they need to get everyone on so early. I guess i'm used to flying southwest airlines where they let people run up 5 minutes before they close the gates.
Cons: It would have been nice to have a gluten free option for the meal.
Pros: Comfort, friendliness of crew, smooth boarding. I had no complaints.
Pros: Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June.
Pros: I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great
Cons: The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options.
Cons: Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+.
Cons: Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space
Cons: Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),
Pros: Crew attentive and helpful
Pros: One crew member was especially amazing
Cons: The rest of the crew were meh. This time there was no food. I pillows. Water leaking from the ceiling.
Pros: crew found me an outlet for laptop
Cons: The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through.
Pros: Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together
Cons: Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles
Cons: Everything was excellent.
Cons: Gave confusing instructions on transfer
Pros: One of the flight attendants was nice.
Cons: 5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL.
Pros: Flight Attendant Precious was just as her name precious and was very impactful in my amazing journey experience.
Pros: Crew and flight
Cons: Price for food and number of bathroom available
Pros: Snacks & drinks & TV movies good
Cons: One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position
Pros: I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise.
Cons: Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected.
Pros: Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy.
Cons: Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see.
Pros: Speedy boarding and deplaning.
Cons: The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic.
Cons: I was good with the flight, my friend had some allergy problems with the ac.
Pros: In flight tracking
Cons: Irregular serbice
Pros: Attentive staff.
Cons: Nothing. Great flight.
Pros: Customer service was great
Cons: They change schedule day before we flight, the change schedule 2 time while were flighting
Pros: Good food. Great service
Cons: Small seats. Crowded.
Pros: Could be among the best landings ever. I felt nothing as we touched down in Salt Lake!!!
Pros: The entertainment unit allowed me to watch the Denver Broncos game live which helped lessen the delayed departure and uncomfortable seating.
Cons: Uncomfortable seating....too crowded!! We had a delayed departure by 30-40 minutes because of a computer download issue. Too many folks carrying carry-ons delayed boarding. I wish folks were not encouraged to go that route but to check baggage. This time of year gets even tougher with folks carrying Christmas presents and over sized personal items. Ugh. Not fun to travel this time of year.
Pros: The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly.
Cons: Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins.
Pros: The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate.
Cons: Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth.
Cons: The gate crew in New York were not in anyway representative of what you as a company are trying to accomplish. Rude, unresponsive, and way to controlling. I watched an 80+ couple who were in first class with me try to board early because of there mobility. "You need to get in line over there on the right" was the answer...sorry to see that happen with Delta !!
Pros: nothing other than on time departure Ann's arrival
Cons: I specifically shopped carriers other than delta or united, tho my regret usa carriers have stopped offering comforts, service, quality food. Not sure how, but even though I bought virgin Australia ticket and flight, I ended up on delta. Terrible sitting, even though after I paid for tickets I was charged extra for more leg room and priority boarding, I got neither, they advertised free texts in flight, it didn't work either.
Pros: Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY.
Cons: Had to pay for meal despite length if flight.
Pros: The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster.
Cons: No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!
Cons: Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible.
Cons: Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options.
Pros: The flight left on time and landed earlier than anticipated
Cons: The seats were narrow and very upright
Pros: Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly.
Cons: Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover.
Cons: The flight was over 20 minutes early
Pros: Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline.
Cons: Nothing at all.
Pros: Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around
Cons: The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude.
Cons: Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel.
Cons: For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!
Pros: Crew was tentative.
Cons: Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad.
Pros: Gate agent arranged flight via Salt Lake City and also gave me $15 lunch coupon for my troubles. She was awesome!
Cons: Dealing with West Jet to refund a mistake on the ticket purchase.
Cons: Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii.
Pros: Nothing to speak of. Nothing exceptional from any other airline - basic
Pros: The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample.
