Entertainment had good choices. I was very comfortable in the chairs. The crew was overall friendly.

Wish the entertainment came with tablets already installed instead if for purchase. Would be nice to have gluten-free options for snacks. Since my first flight was delayed and I barely made it to my connection, I had no time to grab something to eat at the airport. And being celiac, there was only a nut and fruit mix. Not enough to substitute for a meal. My biggest complaint however is with 3 hours left of the flight, i turned on the call button to request a beverage and nobody came. I waited 45 minutes, having to turn on the light 3 separate time because it automatically must have timed out. I couldn't get out of my seat due to seat belt sign. I looked back into the rear galley and 5 attendants were back there talking. Tried to get their attention. Nothing. Finally, I got up and went to get my own drinks. Being a server at hotel in waikiki, I understand that customer service is very important. And though I understand that they may have been busy and unable to answer my call, I could see that clearly was not the problem. They were just standing there and chatting. Very frustrating. Though they were friendly, they just simply weren't paying attention. I have to say in all honesty, I will not be recommending nor flying United airlines again.

The two employees working gate 54A on Christmas Day for flight #51 were incredibly rude to your customers during the boarding process. Their combination of condescending tone, barking at customers, shaming people who were accidentally lining up before their boarding group was called would have been unwelcome on any day, and was especially off-putting on a Christmas morning flight to Hawaii. Please train your employees in proper customer service etiquette. On the flight, you only provide drink service once (every other airline flying to Honolulu provides 2 drink services), and make customers order their own beverages. I went back to get a drink, before the "beverage service has been suspended/ended" announcement was made, and the flight attendant told me there were no more beverages available. That was totally fine with me. However, as I was turning to go back to my seat, he said "you had 5 hours to order a drink and you wait until now?" Rude, and completely uncalled for. I hope Alaska Airlines will take over employee training once the buyout is complete.

No where on my boarding pass or email confirmation did it say this flight was operated by Virgin. It says Alaskan Airlines. I waited in the wrong line for 30 mins and then was told to go to Virgin. It was stressful and I didn't have time to eat before a 5 hour flight.

Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!

I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!

When I checked in i asked the agent to help me board early since I was carrying a fragile musical instrument. She said check back later. I had no seat assigned and was told I would be seated after all families were taken care of. I waited and waited and finally when everyone was boarded, I checked one last time because I was the only person left in the waiting area and the gate agent totally forgot about me. So she assigned me to a seat that had a wall in front of it and no storage space in the seat in front of me. I was livid. Thankfully I didn’t have to check the instrument but the hassle was a nightmare I really wanted to avoid.

Their combination of condescending tone, barking at customers, shaming people who were accidentally lining up before their boarding group was called would have been unwelcome on any day, and was especially off-putting on a Christmas morning flight to Hawaii. Please train your employees in proper customer service etiquette. On the flight, you only provide drink service once (every other airline flying to Honolulu provides 2 drink services), and make customers order their own beverages. I went back to get a drink, before the "beverage service has been suspended/ended" announcement was made, and the flight attendant told me there were no more beverages available. That was totally fine with me. However, as I was turning to go back to my seat, he said "you had 5 hours to order a drink and you wait until now?" Rude, and completely uncalled for. I hope Alaska Airlines will take over employee training once the buyout is complete.

Excellent 10.0

They upgraded me and it was very comfortable. Didn't know till I was going on the plane. They sat me in the exit row and I'm very capable of doing what's needed in an emergency.

Seats weren't as roomy as the newer plane and noisier.

Nothing

Bathroom smelled terrible after multiple passengers made a BM! Should be cleaned and deodorant spray should be available. Had to use some body spray and cologne to neutralize the smell.

Entertainment had good choices. I was very comfortable in the chairs. The crew was overall friendly.

Wish the entertainment came with tablets already installed instead if for purchase. Would be nice to have gluten-free options for snacks. Since my first flight was delayed and I barely made it to my connection, I had no time to grab something to eat at the airport. And being celiac, there was only a nut and fruit mix. Not enough to substitute for a meal. My biggest complaint however is with 3 hours left of the flight, i turned on the call button to request a beverage and nobody came. I waited 45 minutes, having to turn on the light 3 separate time because it automatically must have timed out. I couldn't get out of my seat due to seat belt sign. I looked back into the rear galley and 5 attendants were back there talking. Tried to get their attention. Nothing. Finally, I got up and went to get my own drinks. Being a server at hotel in waikiki, I understand that customer service is very important. And though I understand that they may have been busy and unable to answer my call, I could see that clearly was not the problem. They were just standing there and chatting. Very frustrating. Though they were friendly, they just simply weren't paying attention. I have to say in all honesty, I will not be recommending nor flying United airlines again.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
