Cons: "Flight was a little cold - but in Hawaii, not always a bad thing!"
Pros: "The crew did the best with the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "This flight was extremely disorganized and Hawaiian Airlines did a terrible job of updating the situation to its guests. We had no idea our plane was 4 hours delayed because their websites never displayed that (said everything was on time). We only found out when we went to board and they informed"
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "Crew ok"
Pros: "Food and drink were included, plane was very comfortable, and the service was friendly and professional... great experience."
Pros: "Airbus 330 best"
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "They lost one piece of luggage. Waiting to see if they find it and its returned"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
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."
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!"
Cons: "Almost everything on the in flight entertainment system cost money and the screen was not very responsive."
Pros: "Most of the staff were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "There was a long line to the customer service counter. Another, employee just stood there and watched. I saw someone walk up to the employee that wasn’t doing anything and that employee turned around and walked away from him. Poor organization and customer service for a problem that required everyone’s teamwork. It just takes one bad apple."
Pros: "The gate crew was outstanding in a very difficult situation. They were all very professional and helpful."
Cons: "Scheduled departure was eleven a.m. and actual departure was over seven hours later. We were each provided a $100 credit memo for future travel, but when we tried to reschedule our return trip to avoid LAX we were told the credit could only be used for new travel. Not happy about either the delay or the inability to use the $100 each credits. On top of that, we had to pay $400 rescheduling fees for the two tickets. That looks like a threefer to me. Pretty much sucks."

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.

Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."
