Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable! NO cushion = a very sore bottom, especially on an almost 6 hour flight. VERY disappointed in the entertainment. This airline expects everyone to have a device to play their downloadable entertainment or else pay to rent a device.

They didn’t even make an announcement before the flight took off saying you had to go to a different website to look at the free movies. So myself and the passenger sitting next to me wasn’t able to watch movies unless we paid $10 for one of their pads. They made announcements for everything else especially to tell passengers to put their seatbelts on. Ms. Carly talked the whole flight about something."

Pros: "The staff were very patient with very large group traveling. The staff were very cautious of them not burning themselves with the coffee. If when having large groups of non-speaking passengers, place their group leaders separate so that they can help translate for the crew and then not have to take so long to help them out."
Cons: "Allergies to dogs and there was a dog on the plane. Couldn’t stop sneezing and had an aweful time trying to pressurize my ears from allergies. Very difficult when air circulation can’t be controlled at seat. It was freezing and no way to close vent or stop air from hitting directly onto me."

Pros: "On time - got the seat I wanted - comfortable (for coach)"

Cons: "The food was overly salty. I appreciate the meal, but the taste was not up to par. Also, I had a gate change and no one notified me or emailed me to let me know."

Pros: "Airbus. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Switching from Alaskan Air to Hawaiian Air in San Diego is near impossible. I got off at 9:25am and had to run out of the airport and down to another terminal, go through security again and run to gate 51 from gate 10. It is near impossible for someone who can’t sprint. I was the last one to board. Lost my window seat and luggage didn’t make it. In Honolulu I found out luggage hasn’t made it for at least three other couples flying out of BWI with these connections. This combo should not be offered when people select flights."

Pros: "Service, great customer service."

Pros: "Gate agent was very friendly and was able to changes seats so my parents can sit together."

Pros: "Food service was a suprise. My wife is gluten free and she brought stuff for herself."
Cons: "Seemed like everything was extra. Radio was all I could listen to for free. Even old tv was a charge."

Pros: "When you board a Hawaiian flight, your Hawaii trip has begun. In-flight magazine is impressively high quality. Meal with wine included is great. USB charging port for phone helpful."
Cons: "Could not select seat when booked flight, or was moved. Would prefer meal be poultry, not beef, since a lot of people don't eat beef. Charging for blanket and entertainment seems odd when meal included. No power outlet for laptop."

Cons: "Would like to see complementary movies on flights especially for children on flights over 2 hrs."

Pros: "Lunch included with airfare. Overall feeling of the flight was relaxed, smiling Aloha. Getting us in the frame of mind for Hawaii. Really liked our seats, just the two of us on the outside row. No 3 across."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."

Pros: "We need wheelchair service and the porters were first rate. The airline was more than accommodating, offered a free lunch and you can either order new movies on demand for $7.99 each or watch unlimited TV and older movies for $7.99 (which I did). I liked the value."
Cons: "Drink prices are steep."

Pros: "I liked that we could all sit together, and it feel like we have enough room."
Cons: "On a 5+ hour flight, I was not thrilled with having to pay money for each kid to watch a movie, and then didn't feel as f I could justify spending the money on my husband and I as well, so we didn't watch anything. If each seat has a tv screen, why not have a complimentary in flight movie or two, and then charge if people want to watch something else?"

Pros: "Love the fact that they served complimentary lunch on the plane. It's a perk you don't get anymore on flights. It was a great surprise. Also, there were 4 of us traveling but one person bought her ticket later so her seat was away from us. Without our asking, by the time we got to the gate, they had moved her to sit on the same row with us. The crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "It would be nice if they offered some of the tv shows for free. I understand paying for movies but tv should be complimentary. And as with most planes, it felt cramped once the person in front of me let his seat back."

Pros: "Service, aircraft, food, complimentary glass of wine"

Pros: "Non stop flight, better leg room than most airlines"

Pros: "Boarding was very smooth"

Pros: "service is excellent. Airline personnel very accommodating, very helpful especially for seniors. I'll fly with them again."

Pros: "The crew were very professional. The food was delicious."

Pros: "The crew was knowledgable, professional and curtious to all on board."
Cons: "We left 45 min late."

Pros: "I dropped my wallet just outside the terminal gate boarding the plane and a very handsome steward, introduced by his co-stewardesses as "Pretty Boy Brandon" was kind enough to find me to return my wallet. I appreciated all the kindness recieved by the entire staff at Hawaiian Airlines. Thank you for offering genuine customer service."

Pros: "The flight was very pleasant. Excellent customer service and the pilot did a great job of updating us with the flight schedule, tour guide swag, and the weather."
Cons: "No comment."

Pros: "Boarded on time, Fight attendants positive attitude."
Cons: "Did not take off on time. Landed 50 minutes late. Food (pasta dish) tasted like reheated TV dinner with pasta stuck together in one large reheated mess. Everything is a la carte. On a flight that was over six hours, each movie was 7.99. Two movies,two people, adds up. On Alaska Air, you rent a small entertainment unit (like an iPad) for one fee and watch several movies throughout the flight."

Pros: "Compared to Alaska Air, Hawaiian was way better."

Pros: "The statistics of where we were and when to arrive on the screen. Flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The flight changed from Alaska to Hawaiian airlines in San Diego. They were in different terminals way to close in time to each other. We had to leave security and go back through tsa to get to the connecting flight and missed boarding. We got to the gate at 10:05 with a flight of 10:15. They knew we were coming but still have our seats away. They told us that they couldn't delay the flight and let us on the plane. We had to wait 24 hours for the next flight with no way to get anywhere and no hotel. We slept in the airport and had to go through security again just to get to our flight. Once we boarded and were seated the gangway moved away from the plane. We waited and then the gangway came back to the plane and 4 passengers were taken off the flight. How can they delay the flight to take people off but not to let us on the plane the previous day?! My mother was born in Hawaii and our family was going to get birth place where she lived and I missed that opportunity because they wouldn't let us board because it would delay the flight. It would have delayed a 6 hour fligh for 10 minutes. Our luggage made it on the flight but we didn't. I'm extremely disappointed in the way it was handled by the ticket counter agents."

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."

Pros: "Crew was unbelievably helpful and kind. My grandmother had heart issues on our flight. They took excellent care of us, and checked on her often, even crew members not assigned to our area. Aside from that, various entertainment options, both free and paid. Meal was good and I still crave their trail mix!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "$200 change fee..."

Pros: "First class seating"
Cons: "How short the flight was. Wish I had more time to enjoy first class"

Pros: "I like having a meal with a free glass of wine."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay for a blanket."

Pros: "Friendly, welcoming crew."
Cons: "Not a thing."

Cons: "The quality of the complimenty red wine was extremely poor quality"

Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was made to feel uncomfortable checking in at the counter by the representative because I was flying by myself on my husbands orders. SATO didn't book the flight and I didn't have the right orders according to her. Then she asked where I lived and where I was coming from. Looking at everything in the computer like I was lying. Then on top of that I left my Hydro flask at the counter. No one called me to let me know I left or didn't attempt to return it to me. It was super cold on the flight. I know it's always cold in the flight but this was ridiculous and you walk around selling blankets like are you kidding right now. It should be courteous to give out blankets. You wouldn't have to sell them if wasn't -50* degrees in the plane."

Cons: "The wheel to my luggage broke off in deltas care so if that could have not happened it would have been way better."

Pros: "Entertainment options excellent. Very happy to have my own row seat (exit row)."
Cons: "Snack options (goldfish, biscotti cookie) getting tired."

Cons: "The seat and area around me on this early morning flight were trashy-- old cups of cheese spread, cracker crumbs, and an empty water bottle."

Pros: "Smooth and fast."
Cons: "Headphones should be free. Also some free food would be nice."

Pros: "Crew and all folks. I had not flown Delta for a while. Based on this flight, I’ll put Delta as a first option in future plans."

Cons: "Bring ear buds if you want to watch/listen to a movie. Delta changes for ear buds Everything else was fine"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "flight was diverted an hour away for refueling because of weather over SLC. But SLC opened before we even landed at Grand Junction, CO. I had 8 mins to run between concourses to catch the next flight. My bags didn’t make the flight and have perishable food items. But it is what it is."

Pros: "Everything was great except for the man that smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "A man smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta, and I didn’t see ANY kind of repercussions for his endangering all of our lives. I would’ve very much liked to see him detained for the remainder of the flight."

Pros: "Nothing more to say!"

Pros: "Delta was OK"
Cons: "Lack of attention by the fly stuard in Virgin Australia Virgin had a 45´delay"

Pros: "Departing"
Cons: "More than 4.5 hrs in taxi waiting to take off. Due to “few rain” and after 3.5 hrs we needed to refuel when we were about FINALLY close to our turn for take off. Horrible service by DELTA. Never flying again with them"

Cons: "Delayed in Los Angeles for about an hour. Checked on flight tracker and this flight is consistently delayed 20-40 minutes. Why hasn't Delta done anything to improve this?"

Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."

Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"

Pros: "M"

Pros: "The crew were lovely and the entertainment was wonderful."

Pros: "Free tv which is rare"
Cons: "I had selected my seats ahead of time and they weren’t kept. Day of I tried to buy a seat and it told me there were tech issues and I had to go to a front desk to check in/purchase. Well all that got me was the very last row, middle seat. No recline and seriously no leg room or breathing room once the person in the row ahead leans back. Crew was not helpful. Not to mention, the security line was outrageously long and I got to my flight just before it left only to find out my seating arrangement and be presented with more disappointment. Took over an hour where I’ve never waited more than 20 minutes in this airport (I fly often). Didn’t have time to go to BR or grab a snack Then my second flight was (again another middle seat) way too warm. The attendants said “there’s nothing we can do”.

Pros: "The crew was incredibly helpful and friendly, the seats are so comfortable and the free tv is such a perk!"
