Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."

People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."

Cons: "No food available only drinks"

Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."

I wrote several emails and made several phone calls and received no response. I bought a replacement pair but they're not nearly as good. I'm very disappointed."

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: "yes yes, i didn't purchase thru kayak so why is this coming from kayak?"

Cons: "More leg room"

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."

Cons: "Entertainment for a 6 hour flight would've made sense."

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: "Check in and boarding were no problem. The crew was okay."
Cons: "This is the first airline that I have flown that did not include any free entertainment on its flights (except for short flights) - very disappointing. The food including a "meal".

Cons: "It was a red eye flight, the lights were on for most of it the announcements were non stop. there were so many empty seats some upgrade and some just economy blocked of by a curtain. Allow people to move and spread out in these cases it's just rude and greedy to keep these seats empty when everyone is crammed in tight through out the plane."

Pros: "The blanket and inflatable pillow were a home run with my wife and row mates."

Cons: "A little bumpy"

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."

Cons: "No vegan or vegetarian special meal options. Plane was TOO cold!"

Pros: "Pretty quick...pilot was doing 599mph for most of the way!"

Cons: "Cabin personal was unengaged rude and everything than helpful"

Cons: "Not sure why we left and arrived so late, but it was annoying to miss the last flight out of Vancouver to my destination and have to find a hotel and stay the night. I guess lesson learned on expecting flights to always be on schedule. Sometimes things happen and they’re not."

Cons: "Treatment by EVA staff when trying to transit from Kaohsiung to Shanghai flight. Very incompetent. Take 90 minutes for them to figure out how I can make simple transit. Terrible."

Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"

Pros: "Crews were respectful."

Pros: "We really appreciated the nice customer service we received from the check in desk!! We were able to upgrade and get our seats together- thank you! Also Cathay Pacific gave us our boarding passes straight through to our final destination which made it possible for us to narrowly make our flight once we were in Chicago. Very grateful for this."

Cons: "Manila airport traffic"

Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather. That is understandable. However the crew was not helpful in sharing any information with customers about changes to connecting flights. Much time was wasted and I had to reschedule my flight. The staff members that booked my hotel and my new flight were short and brief and not very helpful or accommodating or informative. Overall I didn’t not feel like a welcomed guest and I do not feel enough compensation was offered for such an inconvenience. Not being able to have my bag overnight was a hassle. I had no clean clothes and had to throw out my contacts because I had no solution. I also couldn’t use the meal voucher they gave me because everywhere in the airport was closed by that time. No stipend was given for toiletries or food delivery. Very unimpressed."

Cons: "wish there was more legroom"

Pros: "Many movies too choose from."
Cons: "Not enough space and food was horrible"

Pros: "Food wash pretty good"

Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "very little service"

Pros: "They made a long trip comfortable with an excellent attitude."

Pros: "There are three meals during the trip."
Cons: "Not at this time."

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: "The crew was nice and so was the American Airlines customer service office in Phoenix"
Cons: "I didn’t like the male and female check in people in Portland. They sat there and watched me for an hour not telling me I could not use cash to check in my luggage at the gate after they told me it was double the amount to check it in at the gate. The sight u use on the boarding pass u download on the phone is not clear. It says baggage fee +$25.00. I thought it was 25.00 till the women in Phoenix showed me the + sign. She said “it is confusing”. I did not buy the ticket because it was for an unexpected funeral of my sister. My other sister did so I didn’t see all the stuff from Travelocity. After telling me it would be $50.00 the check in male and female at the gate saw me sitting there for an hour and never told me I couldn’t pay cash. By the time it was boarding time if a nice woman did not offer to use her credit card and I have her the $50 cash I would have missed my flight. The manager at the gate in Portland even told me I would miss my flight. The two check in staff at the gate said “well we didn’t know you only had cash” and they weren’t even concerned that I was going to miss my flight. It would of been nice of them to tell me this when I sat there for an hour after they told me They we’re doubling the price. I would of had time to go back through security, only pay $25.00 and the other nice passenger would have not had to use her credit card. Very rude and poor service especially after a sad occasion of burying your sister!"

Pros: "I got to japan"
Cons: "I paid for Japan airlines because they are a clean airline and service is superior. Watch the fine print. My seat was dirty crumbs and leftovers left in the pouch and folding tray."

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."

Pros: "A nice uneventful trip"

Cons: "The last cabin was very packed and almost there was no available seat. However, the front cabin was not crowded but a cabin attendant didn’t let me move to other seat at the front cabin even though I was sick and coughing a lot."

Cons: "Seats smaller than before."

Cons: "served snacks without drinks or at least water"

Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Food and WiFi connection was horrible. Crews were unfriendly."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Ran out of sandwiches on PDX to CLT leg. ☹️"

Pros: "I liked the amount of meals and beverages that were served at no additional cost. The entertainment also had a pretty good selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "As a taller individual the leg room was a problem, I wasn't able to get a good nights sleep in the position I was in. No free wi-fi also wasn't convenient."

Pros: "Entertainment Captain Food"

Pros: "Nice clean plane prompt w drinks and food great attendants"
Cons: "Nothing. All was excellent"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Comfort and other services were among the best I've experienced ever flying."

Pros: "Quick to board and on time, plenty of leg room, great new movie and shoe selection during the flight."
Cons: "The food was satisfying, but not great. Entrees were quite salty and bread came a little soggy."

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Entertainment and meals"
Cons: "Crew could of been friendlier"

Pros: "Service was good. Entertainment system was excellent. Flight took almost an extra 45 minutes to arrive and was quite bumpy at the end. Not sure if it could have been avoided."

Pros: "Very efficient crew. Pleasant enough"
Cons: "Bumpy flight, obviously not something that could be helped (tho the pilot came on and said he was hoping to find a smoother altitude, greatly appreciate him trying!)"

Cons: "Holding pattern over Dallas for 45 minutes."

Pros: "My seat changed by a crew when I boarded on the plane and I thought that was rude but then I realized that all the row seats were empty. The newest airplane was clean, nice and had a cool entertainment system. All the crews were very friendly, nice and outstanding customer service especially one of the elder crews (Asian man) was very attentive and caring about all passengers. I hope he will be on the board for my return."
Cons: "No so far."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every single bit. Was horrible and the crew was just aweful."

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: "Snacks"
Cons: "They wouldn't allow me to check my bag at the main gate so I had to go through security and check it at the boarding gate. Souvenirs were confiscated because the bag couldn't be check sooner. Then they tagged my bag with the wrong name and destination. It was 48 hours later before I got my bag."

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: "."

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment and great beverage options"

Pros: "Comfort, convienience. Great service. Will fly again."

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment and no free WiFi. Also food choice was not the greatest"

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"
