The flight duration is 1.5 hours. Besides the point of 2h late…

SFO gate staff super fun playing music and singing having customers waiting to be boarded to participate. Flight staff was nice enough. At least not rude like others I have experienced.

I was delayed for three hours. I didn’t really like anything.

Quick boarding No carry on fee Free beverage Reasonable price

The flight was so empty that some us up forward (in upgraded seats) had to be moved to the back of the plane. The crews handled this situation as well as could be, and I got a row to myself (but it was at the very back of the plane).

They cancelled my return flight somehow without informing me, when I tried to check in I was told the return flight was cancelled on my reservation by the check-in desk during my flight to San Fransisco. They were able to get me on an earlier flight the day I was supposed to fly back when I called. Still, this was super annoying.

Leaving from Paine Field was so relaxing and easy—smooth and stressless! Alaska crew was friendly and helpful!

I was part of the hundreds of people caught up in the aftermath of the 737 Max 9 problem. It took 2 flights and 2 over nights to fly from San Francisco to Portland. Yes some of this was weather, but some was Alaskas and Boeings fault and neither is owning it. The employees were very profession and did what they could under the circumstances.

The flight got canceled the night before. I'm on a redeye now.

The seats are too hard for long flights but otherwise- the process was smooth, the staff attentive, and there was to keep you occupied during the journey if needed.

Plane was late because of a mechanical malfunction and the food listed as available was not. Flight attendants seem over worked and under paid. They just done seem happy. And that can be seen in their faces.

Waited 3 hours on a plane to de-ice due to manpower issues. Waited another hour and a half once we landed because of a gate issue. Missed my connections. Created. A total of 13 hours of delay.

Flight was on time and in fact arrived early. Seating was as comfortable as you can get in coach. Adequate leg room. Good entertainment system and offerings. Food was good. Flight staff was very good and accommodating.

Great, on time departure, friendly and accommodating crew, great leg room, Smith flight

Plane was turned around due to fog half way into the flight, Delta did not properly direct passengers to stay on same flight and instead failed to properly rebook on Alaska

Like most domestic flights in the US, you are basically on your own with this airline when it comes to food, so be sure to purchase meals and drinks ahead of time or expect to arrive starving and dehydrated (like I was).

You need to be a hacker to get the (Free) WiFi

I guess they don’t serve drinks on planes anymore

The flight was overbooked and the staff at the gate started calling for volunteers to drop out and offering incentives. That delayed the flight

The flight was too short for food or entertainment which was no problem. You should have a Not Applicable item on this list.

Quick. Which is good. What could be better is size of 💺 seat.

They had me wait after everyone has boarded to assign a seat for me. WHY?! After about 10 min, they assigned me the last seat in the flight, all the way at end , 46 E or something like that. The food came ONCE, and after, we got some snacks during 12 hours flight. My tv had very poor volume and I was not able to see a movie properly. The staff was super grumpy and stiff and absolutely not welcoming, acting like they are doing US a favor to be there during the flight. Extremely disappointed. I have a flight on 02/22. I’m not looking forward 😩

They did not let me check in . Said I was 4 mins late.

I traveled first class for the first time. The flight from Portland to Honolulu was wonderful. First class was roomy. The seats folded down into a bed. The meal and service were excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The hop from Honolulu to Lihue hadn't much difference between 1st class and coach. But the flight was brief. My departing flight from Lihue to Honolulu was cancelled at the last minute. In order to get home the same day, though about 3 hours later. I was rerouted to Maui and then to Portland. Those flights had no first class seats available, but my only alternative was to stay in Lihue for another day. I was told I would be refunded for that portion of the trip. I was disappointed, but I noticed the 1st class accommodations on the flight from Maui to Portland were not even close to the special experience I had coming from Portland to Lihue. I am curious now about how to select flights that have top notch 1st class accommodations. Can you help?

Everything was top notch except for needing to purchase headphones for entertainment.

Fantastic experience! Crew let us dispyrse into empty seats rather than crammed 3/6 to a row. Food was good. Service was great! Entertainment in every seat

Flight was an hour delayed. Flight crew was cocky and unhelpful. Passengers in first class were concerned about missing a connecting flight and the flight attendants basically said “good luck”. The water and juice were nice. Was not expecting any service due to length of flight.

Checking, boarding and crew were incredible. Super fast and efficient. Loved it

Fairy disappointment at Hawaiian Airlines is looking to sell its brand, history at legacy. Any company that will buy it. Extreme disappointment and shame on the stockholders and management team

Very uncomfortable seats and seat backs, and I am only 5’9”. Delayed due to crew issues, spent a long time with no ventilation. Teeny overhead bins. Wifi worked well. Arrived safely.

I was delighted that we were able to get on the 4:40 pm flight rather than our original booking at 6:55 pm!! Other than that, the flight was comfortable and landed early😊

Our flight was delayed many times throughout the day. The final delay was about 8 hours. I spent time in line to speak to someone at their understaffed desk, and also spent time waiting online and then chatting with a service rep. None of the United employees were any help at all. I desperately wanted to go get rest and possibly re-book my trip but I was denied any compensation or voucher for a hotel. I was repeatedly told it was not United's fault and therefore they had no compensation to offer. Overall, a cold and callous experience.

Paid WiFi was only available for a few minutes. Avoid at all costs.

Everything was great, only problem was that flights were delayed

Flight crew and pilots did great. Flight way delayed due to a part needing replacement. Based on what the pilot indicated- the maintenance crew could’ve resolved this more efficiently than replacing whole part- and taken less time

Everything was good, hard to really comfortable on a flight that long.

Pretty turbulent, but not anyone’s fault. They got us there. Impressed that they carried on with a drink service.

Please please take consideration when setting cabin temperature. The vents were not functional and it was over 70 degrees in the cabin during the winter months when most people are used to much cooler indoor temperatures. I was down to my white t-shirt and the sweat pants I wore from Auckland to San Francisco and was sweating profusely and there was NO VENT!

The best part was we weren’t too delayed. Seating space in economy is insulting and about as uncomfortable as one could expect before mutiny breaks out. Prep for landing happened well over 45 minutes before wheels down: no final garbage pickup and it interrupted those of us who needed tray tables down for dinner, etc.

Being back games on the in-flight entertainment. Also your flight attendants need a break, raise, or overall attitude adjustment.

Flight was delayed and missed connecting flight. Did not give warning about delay until we showed up at the airport. Not good.

The usual wait at Columbus once you land to get to an open gate (20 minutes) and then the usual 30 minutes for your luggage to appear.

Nothing, flight was supposed to leave at 758 am. My flight didn’t leave until 430 pm. Spent the whole day at the airport.

Everything was very good EXCEPT the food, on a five and a half hour trip. They only gave to us was snacks in first class. They didn't give us pillows or blankets.

It was wonderful upgrading to first. Plane was so cold thou. Crew was great. Wish there was a food option in first for such a long flight. Doesnt matter the time of day. Chintzy.

Do a bit better with n first class offer some real food and pillows

We experienced an involuntary change of schedule. Had 1st class tickets from Fresno to Bonaire, put us in coach from Miami to Bonaire a few days later - terrible flight, try to get a refreshment , water or a meal and air. We will never be subject to that again. I'd rather fly another airline that honors 1st class. Adding insult to injury AA reimbursed my wife's ticket $106.66 for the change in seating, me nothing. Haven't heard back from Customer Service, don't expect to - it's only online, can't speak with a live person. So the difference between 1st class and coach for that portion of the flight is only $106.66? Really? I've flown Delta and United on the same route, will go back to one of them again.

It was Christmas and the crew was awesome. And the passengers were patient.

On time! Cabin crew attentive. Good WiFi sofrtvterm free internet appreciated
