Cons: "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."

Pros: "Food was better than most domestic airlines. Seats were large enough for comfortability during a long flight. Seats against walls still recline."

Pros: "Ontime , friendly , comfortable, they really do take care of you"

Pros: "Food served is actually ok. Planes on time"
Cons: "I'm so sick and tired of being subjected to damn ads on Hawaiian Airlines flights. They literally use the claims form as an excuse to show a short video about how to fill it out and THEN give you two or three ads because they figure "what the hell we have your attention now and we're going to sell you something and increase our profits." I have had it with this type of capitalism that just milks people's patience. No thanks! And no more damn Hawaiian Airlines credit cards ads! For crying out loud."

Cons: "I didn't like the people who was at the San Fran airport who checked us in. I have a sister who Is handicap and I needed assistance and they had no Mercy. Honolulu gave us much better service Then San Francisco. The people in Honolulu helped us from the time we exited our car till we got on the plane."

Pros: "On my flight to SF I had a runny nose and requested for tissue from the attendant. She was so busy and forgot, but I managed to get tissue from the restroom. On my way back to HI, she was in my flight and apologized (I didn't even notice her since I was preoccupied) - I told her it was busy and I saw her working it and it was okay. She offered her help in anything and I thought that was super sweet, then she said.. I wont forget this time. Nice touch"

The airline staff did not say a word why the flight was cancelled, but they were kindly enough to put me on a United Airline flight at 1:15pm on the same day. But the UA flight got delayed and delayed, I didn't get on the airplane until 5pm on 9/23.

Cons: "Serve alcohol :)"

Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."

When my 1st flight was delayed I asked to be rebooked then and the delta employee insisted that I would make my connection. I didn't make it. This is not all. I could have gotten to a near city several hours after but on the same day, but the mediocrecy of this employes did not allow me to get there until the next day at 7 am. Happy new year to me. This two women (or one of them) on the phone, lied to me. There was an option to get me here and one of them failed to do their job right AND LIED TO MY FACE ON THE PHONE. Just unacceptable. I will sue them, I had an under age waiting for me in Cancun and a pet with me!. With no food or access to do its necessities. AND THERE WAS AN OPTION THAT "they missed" on porpuse."

Pros: "The t.v. 's at each seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Prior to boarding, on line check-in was available up to the point where customer is forced to pay $12 for seat assignment, once that is paid, continuation is unavailable--a ruse and a theft. I was informed by check in counter of the $40 bag fee, whether it is carried on or checked. When I asked for clarification, he replied I should have been aware of it prior to speaking to him. I paid the $40 and checked my bag, my only item. On the plane, I see other customers with backpacks, some large backpacks and with personal totes. I wonder what they paid.
