Pros: "The crew was amazing! Always love Alaska Airlines peeps. The flight left on time and arrived early too!"

Pros: "the flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "getting assigned seats earlier."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The only enjoyable thing about my flight was the couple sitting next to me."
Cons: "We weren’t served drinks until nearly 2 hours in. They kept making announcements saying “it’s really turbulent and not safe” but I’ve flown a lot and we barely had any turbulence the entire flight and at no point was it unsafe. When it was calm they were hanging out and taking in the back."
Cons: "I was in 1st class and they ran out of breakfast options."
Cons: "Crying baby and turbulence. Nothing in anyone’s control."

Cons: "It was about half the price of other major airlines. So naturally I expected the worst. Turns out it was better than many airlines I flown in the past."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Our flight was changed to a later time. I selected new seTs but when we check in our seats had been changed and we were not sitting together. The internet was difficult to navigate For more than just my husband and myself"
Cons: "Entertainment system 40H not operational. This is not the first time. Overall the plane seemed a little run-down and in need of maintenance. Crew had a “couldn’t care less” attitude about passengers, very unusual in TK flights."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and kind. Would fly it again."
Cons: "Plane small and crowded. Food is a little pricey and they need to offer more than just 2 cookies."
Pros: "The crew is kind and I appreciated their service while flying"
Cons: "For my first time flying with them, you would hope that your luggage makes it to your final destination. Since it didn’t, many plans in Hancock had to be rearranged and my ride has to rearrange her schedule. Not to mention, I had to rearrange my schedule again just to pick it up at the airport the next day."
Pros: "I'll let you know after we get on the one they pushed us to. Completely unacceptable service."
Cons: "We don't think that we will be flying an airline with such poor management teams in place again."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost upon our return trip. While helpful, they didn't automatically offer a customer service gesture discount without request. This was mentioned upon disembarking from the jet. However, the claim attendant did not mention it at customer service to my wife. I had to go and mention what was stated by the flight attendant. While waiting again in line, I observed that the customer service person did not mention it to the two families in front of me."

Pros: "Boarding and expected part of the flight were fine."

Pros: "Crew were fairly good however it was probably due to sitting by the captains significant other. First time flying alaska, probably will again due to them having more free stuff then United."
Cons: "Drinks didn't come by very often, felt like the crew were sucking up to the SO of the captain and ignoring me and my fiance."
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "We were awakened at 130am for breakfast!!!!!! Who eats in the middle of their sleep."

Pros: "I feel it is overall faster to go to the Alaska website direct"
Pros: "Crew was great under bad circumstances...they held their heads up."
Cons: "The crew miscounted the passengers on 3 occasions forcing them to come row by row to confirm our last names twice. This delay caused us to almost miss our window to get to Seattle (which was already delayed by almost 2 hours). Luckily we had a 3 1/2 hour layover or we would have missed our only connection. There was also a communication breakdown between our crew and Seattle, almost causing us to deplane...luckily avoided at the last minute when Seattle changed their minds...ugh. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE AT ALL."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Boarding team were very pleasant and crew as well. Flight was smooth and FAST, we arrived 15 minutes ahead of time. (Portland airport was very easy to maneuver through and staff was helpful too!"
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and personable. Food was excellent."
Pros: "I liked that I got to use my status on American for this flight."
Cons: "The seat cushion for neck support was not adjustable - the American Airline flights have this functionality to support your neck while you sleep."
Pros: "I don't like to fly but this was the best flight ever!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "It was disappointed that I paid to upgrade to first class and there was a cat next to me... I bonded with a group of other passengers over our cat allergys. Thankfully there was another passenger giving out beadryl. many people sneezing the whole flight. The passenger with the cat was nice, giving chocolate to all the flight attendants. At one point he had the cat out on His lap petting it... I was waken from my sleep with my eyes swollen shut and sneezing. you will see other complaints about this flight... As for me, I want my upgrade refunded. I did not eat, I did not watch movies.... I did not get to enjoy my flight."
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable..."
Pros: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Crew members weren't too friendly or helpful"

All schedules were on time and friendly crews.

Pros: "The crew was kind and friendly"
Cons: "Cushions could have been better. Butt got sore"
Cons: "Short flight great friendly service."
Pros: "The crew was very lovely in flight, the ground crew in Portland did as well as they could under the circumstances"
Cons: "I arrived an hour before my flight- after boarding began they closed the doors to reboot the engines and try and "fix" a problem with the landing gear. The flight kept being delayed with no explanation of whether or not it would even fly. We were told missed connections would be dealt with but they weren't. It ended up two hours late, had I known I would have gone to eat somewhere and avoided the terrible egg mushroom thing served on the flight. After landing , many were left with no idea how to get to their destinations and no recourse. The crew was great in the flight, though. Whoever maintains your aircraft should make sure problematic aircraft not be used to transport tens of thousands of your dollars. Very disappointing, considering this was my first flight with Hawaiian, I had heard they were the best. Noteworthy though, that my trip TO Portland with your airline was top notch. The return, however , leaves me with a bad taste and I don't think I will choose it again"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Crew was good, seats were decent."
Pros: "Early departure early arrival"
Cons: "Food options, more prompt service,"
Cons: "Food, leg room!"
Pros: "Short island hop but still great staff is just HAPPY"
Cons: "Honestly, you used to get a pillow and blanket. Now you get nothing. I know it's probably something that will never come back, but it's a nice touch. Otherwise, really satisfied with the flight experience."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were comfy. Flight was overall very pleasant!"
Cons: "First time landed at gate E in terminal 1. Proceeded through terminal and down to baggage claim. Went down and found no baggage anywhere. No flight on arrivals board and had to go to terminal 2! Agents said the state doesn't allow Hwn to list the portland flight? Please have signage clear."
Pros: "Good complimentary cocktail"
Cons: "Delay leaving and delay to get fate after landing slowed things down."
Pros: "Comfort plus in the front cabin is nice and quiet"
Cons: "Entertainment screen had problems."
Pros: "The crew was very good and met all our needs."
Cons: "Free entertainment from LA to Honolulu."
Cons: "Nothing I did not like, all went well."
Cons: "Racially profiled by security guard..Never coming here again."
Pros: "Fantastic attendants, clean, overal A+"
Pros: "The staff on the flight was great."
Cons: "Screaming babies everywhere."
Pros: "Crew. Space. Food."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "No entertainment, AWFUL food, uncomfortable seata"
Cons: "Most airlines offer free entertainment on long distance domestic flights as long as you bring your own headphones. This is a 5-hour flight. Why would Hawaiian Airline want to charge $7.99 for viewing a movie?"
Cons: "Husband and I upgraded our seats, only to board and settle in and be asked that one of us leave the seat we paid for because they made an error and double booked one of the two seats."
Pros: "Quick problem solving and excellent service when my assigned seats were not the same on the boarding pass. The awesome safety video from around the islands. The crew was very efficient and kind. The breakfast mea was just right. Milk with good coffee! Especially liked that HA offers plenty of water! Mahalo nui loa!"
Pros: "The crew and boarding process."
Cons: "No available entertainment/WiFi besides purchasing it"
Pros: "the breakfast was good and the crew were very nice"
Cons: "The free entertainment choices were terrible"
Pros: "Fantastic in comparison to the many I have flown. Service was great, up graded economic seats had plenty of room and were fairly comfortable. Nice big plane. I did feel swished in like a sardine."
Pros: "Extra comfort seats were nice. Meal was nice."
Cons: "I don’t want to watch ads on the plane. I already bought the darn ticket. Don’t make me watch ads."
Cons: "need to pay for each movie not one fee as on many other airlines or free on Alaska airlines food was awful croissant was dry as a desert wind not a single free beer or wine and i paid for the extra leg room"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "You guys showed window available, so made the purchase. but got shuffled around to bad seats when it’s time for my flight. Screw you guys!!! That is how I really feel"
Pros: "I like that they gave a meal during the flight, especially since it was a 6 hour one. Food wasn’t too special: a hot sandwich, chips, and cookie. Good overall atmosphere. Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "When checking in, there wasn’t any seats available. Needed to wait at the gate to finally get seat assignment, after boarding already started. Traveling as a party of two, was lucky to be able to sit together for a full flight. Also, all entertainment options cost money. For other airlines, some cost money and some did not. For a long flight, I would expect free entertainment, but I might be spoiled by flights to China."
Pros: "Crew was nice, we had free breakfast (yogurt, grapes, granola, and bread), and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The movies they provided on the screen you had to pay $8 each to watch."
Pros: "People were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were worn out and uncomfortable. Entertainment was expensive."
Pros: "I love the comfort of the Airbus. It is much better than the old HA planes the last time I flew Hawaiian."
Cons: "I think the movie prices are way too much. A lot of airlines offer free entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly service. Clean nice plane."
Cons: "The landing was harsh."
Pros: "The blanket and inflatable pillow were a home run with my wife and row mates."
Cons: "Rock hard seats and after 6 hours we were done. May need to get fat?"
Pros: "Got there on time,courteous crew, comfortable seat. Have flown Hawaiian before, will fly Hawaiian again, its always been good."
Pros: "The timing of the meals, the flavorful food and the listening choices. The night goggles were quite helpful."
Cons: "Sitting that long."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the provided food was almost worth paying to not eat it was so bad."
Pros: "Crew was very nice!"
Cons: "It was freezing. Please carry something warm or be ready to shell out $7 for a blanket!"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and very helpful getting us to our connecting flight to Kona since we arrived late, due to equipment problems leaving Sacramento. A free meal was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1+ hour. The ticketing agents were rude when we inquired about re-scheduling a connecting flight. They were not accommodating at all. They required purchase of in-flight movies. Next time I'm flying Alaska, at least the movies are free."
Cons: "Somehow I was not assigned the seat I choose. The flight attendant offered for me to speak with an agent but I stayed in the newly assigned middle seat."
Pros: "I liked the free meals that were served. The extra food I received from the stewardess and fellow passengers. The Hawaiian atmosphere that pervaded the plane. The quiet engines. The nice wide A330 that felt secure crossing the ocean. I would recommend Hawaiian airlines to anybody. I would suggest direct flights from the east coast and midwest."
Pros: "Great crew. During meal time they did a great job of having passengers adjust their seats so people could eat their meals in economy. If they didn't do this, it would be left to the passengers to ask the person in front of them to raise the seat or have to struggle to eat with that person's seat close to your face. Having the crew do that was great. That is another thing nice with this Hawaiiian aircraft. The seats actually have leg room in econonmy and they recline enough to rest. Don't change that! Also very nice is that you get a complementary wine or beer with your meal :-)"
Cons: "Entertainment options felt like 'nickel and diming'. It is a 5+ hour flight and all the seats have personal entertainment consoles. The only thing is you have to pay ~$7 to watch any of the movies. Be sure to have your book or device loaded up before flight. Each seat has a USB charging port :-), however it only has low amps - this means you can't charge things like a tablet :-(."
Pros: "Plane got turned around after 3 hours in plane. Had to change 2 flights, my rental car reservation, 2 doctor appointments with no sympathy or even care from Hawaiian airlines. Spent hundreds of dollars and got no compensation. Not happy and will never book again."
Cons: "So disappointed, angry, and sad."
Pros: "Loved the customer service all the way. All of the employees were very attentive and were genuinely interested in helping everyone."
Cons: "There's nothing I didn't like. I really liked everything."
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and efficient. Always on time and organized."
Cons: "Choice of movies. Too old."
Pros: "The seats are better than anything I've experienced in the cattle car, which doesn't make them great, and the leg room was OK (I'm 6"). I was pleased to find out they included a meal for free, as I hadn't bought anything to eat for the 5 1/2 hr flight. Overall a better than average flight, and it was on time."

The flight staff were polite, seats were comfortable, and we reached our destinations on time. This was my first time traveling first class since the pandemic. The difference in service was dramatic and made me seriously regret having paid three times more for a first class ticket. Specifically No Sky Cap lounge - One of the main reasons I traveled first class was to use the Sky Cap lounge since we were going to have to wait for our flight for several hours at PDX. PDX Sky Cap would not allow us to enter as first class passengers. The receptionist said we needed to have their American Express Card. Further the Las Vegas Sky Cap lounge is permanently closed. Food - Our first flight was early in the morning, so I thought no need to grab breakfast in the airport, I'm traveling first class. The only food we were served or offered between LAS and PDX was Biscoff cookies. Our return trip was the same. Seems the days of being served a hot meal in first class are long gone.

Pros: "Exit row."
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Crew AND passengers were great, polite & calm. Seats are kinda squashy, tight. Food was yummy."
Cons: "Don't think you could make general seats more roomy for average sized people? Luggage bins were squashy too."
Pros: "Good services in anticipating our next leg"
Cons: "On time flight"
Pros: "Plane was clean & modern"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Hot in the plane and the landing was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."
Cons: "Comfort"
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "The pilot, Mr. Howes, I believe, came out and personally thanked everyone for flying Delta. It was a nice touch to see the actual pilot that was flying and me home and that he shared his gratitude. Go DELTA!!"
Pros: "I was moved to an end Seat, as I was in constant leg pain."
Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Felt claustrophobic after a while because guy in seat next to me was rather large and spilling into my seat"
Cons: "I was placed on an earlier flight as soon as I arrived at the Portland airport. The flight was full, there was no room for my bag in the overhead bins. The bag was checked, not to just Seattle but all the way to Venice. Well, surprise, surprise, the bag was lost on the way to Venice. KLM does not allow enough time in Amsterdam for luggage to make a connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "Every Delta employee that we encountered was professional and pleasant"
Pros: "Excellent Service."
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: "On time, free beer , good price"
Cons: "No movie, no charging telephone"
Cons: "I will make it my sole purpose to let everyone I know and review this on every site. Kayak messed up our flights so badly and then would not fix them. I spent 4 hours being bounced between airlines and travel sites just to be screwed with for a mistake Kayak made and would not fix. Worst company ever!"
Pros: "In flight tracking"
Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Gate attendant was extraordinarily rude"
Pros: "really great service, arrived early, as good as it gets."
Pros: "Crew fantastic"
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."
Pros: "Better seats"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Typical flight, all went well. Special services picked me up at the plane."
Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."

Cons: "Condition of the airplane"
Pros: "in economy class"
Cons: "very hard seats with not enough legroom."
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."
Pros: "fast efficient and directions are pretty clear tons of delicious food available at PDX to bring plane was comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "long lines through security"
Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seating has gotten WAY too tight. Will not do that again ... discomfort, inability to even stretch a little bit caused painful nerve flare?"
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing- good flight, I couldn't sleep but that wasn't your fault"
Pros: "We didnt have food or entertainment because the flight was short."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Snacks if possible"
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: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."
Pros: "I trusted Delta to take of my clients; Delta usually did. Rather, the employees of Delta did. Now when I travel, I prefer Delta (when they aren't too much more economically). Let me change that to I used to prefer Delta, because the times, they are achanging. My home airport is Atlanta, I'm usually traveling to Seattle or Portland; Delta is king in those routes. There's more flight time options, and the entertainment available is better."
Cons: "Here's where the picky comes in. I downloaded the 'Go Go" wifi app beforehand. When I tried to connect I received a message that it wasn't available on my routes. Why couldn't they tell me that it might not work on my routes before they took my money? Further, why wasn't it available? It's not like I was going on a multi city/country trip, this was Atlanta to Portland non-stop. Then there's the 'Premier Seating". I opted for it on my outbound flight and received TSA Pre Check. I didn't buy the seating coming back; I did not receive TSA Pre Check. Coincidence? My fare was more than Alaska Airlines was offering it for, I paid for the wifi that didn't work, and in order to avoid the back of the plane, you must pay. So, I guess I'll be going to Alaska Airlines. They don't have as many flights, but I don't feel dinged for more money every time I turn around."
Pros: "Long flight but smooth despite delays"
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5 hours."
Cons: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."
Pros: "Very accommodating crew as we were traveling with my elderly grandmother."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."
Pros: "One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice."

Cons: "Decaf tea"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"
Pros: "Arrived early with great service which is most important when flying."

Cons: "Bigger seat"
Pros: "The most cramped seats ever"
Pros: "The free movie"
Pros: "WiFi"
Cons: "Had to take shuttle to other side of airport which took over an hour. Very very poor experience. Also, Seats had no room pull down table."

Cons: "The flight crew from PDX to CLT were not very customer service friendly. I was quite underimpressed."
Pros: "Landed safely and on time. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cramped. Older plane missing USB plugs. Entertainment requires an app. Bathroom door still has ashtray. Should have been cheaper for what I got which was a regular ticket for a 5'8" 160lb person."
Pros: "Crew is very nice, we were on time and baggage didn't get lost for once."
Cons: "Seats are simply too tight, not enough space for carry-on, and boarding procedures are a joke."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Flights from PDX to BOS cancelled. Rerouted to PHX. All flights out of BOS, DC, Philly cancelled. I missed my Habitat for Humanity trip, not getting any refunds on flights or hotels. Out thousands and no one is helping me."

Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"
Pros: "Entertainment Captain Food"
Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"
Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."
Pros: "Ticket agents at all airports were helpful and very considerate."
Cons: "We were not able to print our boarding passes the day before as expected per the website and purchase docs for the tickets, despite providing passport numbers (several times) and Global Entry registrations. Had to go to a ticket desk at first departure and third departure points to have them printed, with no explanations given. Also not allowed to choose our seats for the third leg. Food was barely edible. Paid extra for roomier seats on one leg, making it more comfortable, but were extremely tight on another leg which had many empty seats scattered throughout the cabin. Cabin attendants seemed more interested in pushing items that generated revenue than providing the ones that came with the ticket (which is never cheap to begin with)."
Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues our 8am flight kept getting delayed in 30 minute increments until around 9:45 when the front desk attendants told us the necessary part had to be driven from Seattle and wouldn't be available until noon, and that their was no certainty the part would work, and that we should make other arrangements. So we did, but their earliest we could get us into Chicago was 9:30pm (original arrival was 2pm). We booked the arrangements only to find out that our original flight took off at 10:55 and American didn't even attempt to contact us. The cherry on top was that our flight (which was indirect through SFO) got delayed and we're now going to miss our connection in SFO. So currently looking at 10:30pm arrival in Chicago."
Pros: "The crew is caring and attentive. AA is upgrading all their planes and the individual monitors so you can watch and/or listen to any entertainment you wants. Plane left on time and arrive early, making transfer less stressful."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Free military upgrade was awesome. Thank you AA. In flight entertainment was good because it was free. And thank you for the USB outlet, now if you could just do that for ALL domestic flights i would never fly anything other than AA. Also, my connection was late and AA held the flight for me and 11 others to our final destination to Honolulu. Thank you American Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew were awesome, and some reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. Overall good but not great. Nothing to really complain about though."
Pros: "."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "No internet on flight. No movies on flight. Plane was older. Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment and great beverage options"
Pros: "The switch up w amaerican air Can't find flight for check in no one is on the phone over night. Finally figured out the prob. Did like amer air And all the shuttling. Chaos"
Cons: "I used to fly with American Airlines a lot more and every time the staff somehow finds a way to be rude and ruin my day so I try to avoid this airline. On this particular flight it was the very rude asian flight attendant that really set the mood. The attitude of the staff really makes or breaks the experience and it seems like American Airlines doesnt care about the quality of thier employees"
Pros: "Pretty comfortable"
Pros: "I like that they had a TV show showing at no extra cost"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable, I've been on planes before but after an hours I couldn't get comfortable at all."
Pros: "From getting called stupid by Linda B in the phl airport bc I used the first class check-in computers vs the regular ones, then she says "what you can't spell"? After I asked for her name, what a horrible overall experience from American airline s. Won't ever fly your airline again. I'll pay more money to avoid your company.."
Cons: "Zero entertainment on flighta out to weSr coast. Plane was very hot during red eye coming back."
Pros: "Good crew on both trips"
Cons: "No crying children"
Pros: "The business seats were comfortable & our service excellent"
Pros: "Crew on both our flights were very nice and accommodating."
Pros: "I booked business, so not too bad."
Cons: "I don't know why United doesn't take the 8 hr flight to Honolulu as serious as they do international flights. The business class was like being in Priorty seats with food and reclining. I was in the middle seat of 4 seats. still a crowed feeling. I would not waste my money on business on that flight"
Cons: "United really seems to have issues with their planes. Problems on Wednesday then again today. On Wednesday we boarded late and pushed people’s flights back because the cleaners didn’t show up at boarding time and at landing time we had to go back up when the prior flight was still on the runway."
Pros: "The crew was kind and entertaining and super helpful"
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: "The crew was very kind and welcoming."
Cons: "The seats are much tighter than Southwest and Virgin. My husband and I are taller (6' and 5'9" respectively) and our knees kept bumping the seats in front of us."
Pros: "How nice the crew were with all passengers"
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."
Cons: "A little late getting started, otherwise OK."
Cons: "Bad smell"
Pros: "No positive to say"
Cons: "United delayed 6 hours and dropped from from connecting flight not accommodating me"
Pros: "Quick and easy flight- not much to say, which is always good news while flying."
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The disconnect between ticketing and boarding passes between the 2 airlines. We didn't have TSA PRECHK on the boarding passes United gave us in Portland and getting through security was long and tedious."
Pros: "On time. Overall everything went well."
Cons: "No food and no entertainment for a 4 hours flight. With the high price ticket I bought, I think that’s really unfair."
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"
Cons: "Got stuck in the San Francisco airport and was promised a hotel room for the night when I departed Portland. When I arrived at SFO I was told sorry you have to just stay in the airport My next flight wasn’t until the next morning Shitty customer service"
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: "I tryed to call and send messages to chande the date of flight, but I didn't get any answers from agent. ANA Japan said they cannot handle the changing flight. So I haven't got a return ticket rescheduled. Please advice me how to get new ticket back to Hawaii date of 9/12 or 13 ASAP."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The leg room & the service"
Pros: "Flight was fine and flight attendants were nice. Employees at the gate were less than helpful."
Cons: "United booked too many flights when they knew the destination was limiting arrivals. This delayed our flight by 3 hours. Communication to the travelers was poor and misleading."
Cons: "Crew members were not friendly. There was no in-flight entertainment available, and no snacks that were complimentary."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of preparedness before taking off from each stop."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "I did not like how much it was to watch tv. Could have provided a blanket."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No free meals"
Cons: "Crew and food could be better"
Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Seats. Not comfortable at all for long flights."
Cons: "United lost my checked in baggage and the customer service was so terrible and no one was helpful nor even cared. United totally ruined my trip."
Pros: "The crew of this flight were amazing, attentive, and so positive. They certainly made the long flight an enjoyable one. The only challenge was that the in-flight entertainment stopped working 5 hours into the flight. That said, the crew informed us of how United would compensate us for that. As for the landing, that was perfect. We eased onto the tarmac so gently it barely felt as though we had landed."
Cons: "I wasn't too excited that the in-flight entertainment quit working about five hours in, but the crew did their best to remedy the situation. It did stink that we were delayed in disembarking, but that wasn't the fault of the crew. Lastly, I do wish that food came complimentary with it being a 9-hour flight. The options presented were tasty looking but it felt a little like we were being nickeled and dimed."
Pros: "The staff were normal and no complaints."
Cons: "I had to share my seat with the man next to me who continually had his arm and leg in my seat area. It's unfair and obnoxious to pay the same money as somebody else who then takes your already small space. I am not a large person (140lb, 5'7") and I could barely move my arms without bumping one of the people next to me. There's no reason that we should have such limited space."
Cons: "Over 3-hour delay. Various text messages including one that indicated the flight was leaving 5 minutes earlier; then it was delayed again!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty legroom."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Seating comfort was *horrible*! Looks like they've made the seats more cramped, especially when the seats recline"
Pros: "The agent handling boarding was very helpful and friendly. The pilot did a great job getting us to SFO safely and smoothly."
Cons: "I was disapponted there was no back-of-the-seat screen for in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing, please..."
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 plane was new"
Cons: "Could not be helped but a delay of a little over an hour."
Cons: "Didn't like being delayed for almost 5 hours before we took off other then that it was your average flight"
Cons: "The seats are so narrow in coach that the man with broad shoulders that sat next to me could not help being in my seat. I needed to be able to sleep, since it was an overnight flight. This was not possible."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "How rude the women airline attendants are /the extreme lack of leg room"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. It was a long flight, so glad that came around in between drink services to offer water."
Cons: "Not that much content on the entertainment device, several movies were only playing in Japanese and no option to change to English. My device kept shutting off at random times despite having full battery."
Pros: "Great entertainment. Most of crew was very nice."
Cons: "Computer problem delay. Then someone closed the door improperly, so back to the gate. Then we needed more fuel. Then we had to wait for "paperwork". Took off 2 hours late all of which was spent sitting on the plane."
Pros: "Plenty of personal space. this first leg was actually quite pleasant I would give this leg a 4.5"
Cons: "The spicy snack was awful, I needed water, it took a while to get to me."
