Pros: "Very pleasant trip. Everything went very smooth. Will fly again with you."

Cons: "The flight attendants on board the plane were amazing and I'm sure equally as frustrated as the passengers. The gates were mixed up at the airport. We were told we had to move gates and would be delayed one hour. One hour turned into two and just before noon they told us to rush boarding. If we didn't take off by noon the pilots would time out. They timed out and we had to deplane. Alaskan was not telling us very much information and we were again delayed until 2:15. We started boarding at about 1:35 and we sat on the plane until well after 2:15. Apparently there were mechanical issues and again we had to deplane. We, as were all of the other passengers, were extremely upset. They couldn't tell us what was going to happen. A supervisor came out and basically said I can refund you, you can rebook, or you can wait it out. There were limited spaces on flights for the next day. Finally, at 4:30, they boarded us again and took off at 5. The whole experience was extremely upsetting. Overall, we were delayed 7 and a half hours. We missed a whole day of vacation and lost money, with very little remorse or compensation from Alaskan airlines."

Pros: "The only reason I gave a “good” rating for this flight is because the crew & staff were courteous and patient, given the chaos."
Cons: "A lot happened. First system was down in SJC so it delayed boarding. Also passengers without seat assigned (and for some reason there were a lot of us) had to wait until all other passengers boarded before seats were assigned. Then in HNL we had to wait over 30 minutes before baggage came out."

Cons: "the cookies are too small. there was no plug to charge my phone or laptop. there was no tv in the headrest. when did they stop doing that? i've always had at least a plug to charge stuff"

Cons: "Cabin crew was very disengaged. Unfriendly. Destroyed my bag then said they wouldn't pay to fix it."

Pros: "Easy check in. Wheelchair came right away."
Cons: "I wasn't able to pick my seat. Ended up ok, but...."

Pros: "I never knew it could be this bad. 30 years of travel globally and you've found a new nadir. Keep in mind this is ALL a review of mismanagement. Staff were friendlish and good people it seemed.. just following antiquated equipment and systems given by management. Key flaws: No online or at check in seat assignment. Had to go to gate. Even though dozens of seats. Why??? Check in in herd an hour early a debacle.. again why??? No plug, no USB, no wifi, no movie on 6 hour flight??? Again it is in stark contrast to immensely support competitors. Sell to someone competent. Mahalo."
Cons: "?"

Pros: "Kind stewardesses, good food and snacks, and friendly people. This being a long awaited visit with my daughter, my flight was a great transition for which I am so thankful!"
Cons: "The flight was long and my back gets tired but none of that has any reflection on the high quality of service I received."

Pros: "New plane with slide seat when recline was excellent. Great storage overhead bin."
Cons: "They arrived at gate 34-38 area which was during the construction and passenger got lost after getting off the plane. There was wikiwiki bus shuttle to the inter island terminal but people without check in luggage lost about 30min at the airport. Hawaiian Airlines should work harder to be prompt on the arrival gate every time. Very unpredictable and inefficient."

Pros: "Plane got turned around after 3 hours in plane. Had to change 2 flights, my rental car reservation, 2 doctor appointments with no sympathy or even care from Hawaiian airlines. Spent hundreds of dollars and got no compensation. Not happy and will never book again."
Cons: "So disappointed, angry, and sad."

Pros: "All services are great!"
Cons: "Too cold."

Pros: "Crews personality demonstrated professional and courteous."
Cons: "Food offered was precooked wrapped in plastic egg McMuffin version. As title suggested bland and tasteless."

Cons: "boarding a bit chaotic"

Cons: "Requested a window seat for my disabled daughter in February for our July flight. Agent assured us she would be in a seat with a window. When we got to our seat there was NO window. Of all the seats with windows on this plane, how could someone do this? Then when we loaded they placed one of our carryon bags in the back of the plane. We had to wait until everyone departed before getting our bag. Never again on Hawaiian Airlines. Still have to take the return flight. Not looking forward to the flight..."

Pros: "On time, great flight attendants, free upgrade offered"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Seat 12a was locked in place and didn't recline."

Pros: "They didn't have any food at all we had to sit hungry for 6 hours"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seating arrangement took longer then my usual experiences but it wasn't horrific it's the only negative thing I have to say"

Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Informing that the flight would delayed by three hours ahead of time would have been amazing. Instead of extending the delayed time every 45 min making us miss all the other opportunities to fly out"

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."

Pros: "Crew was great very clean and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Food was very inapropriate for the hr"

Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."

Cons: "Great flight"

Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat."

Pros: "New plane with good features. I was very comfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The seats are probably the most comfy of all the flights I’ve taken. All the crew was super nice."
Cons: "On my delta app it said we’d have the TVs again but we didn’t have any this time."

Pros: "The crew asked a passenger to move so we could all sit together. It was awesome. :)"

Cons: "Duration"

Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."

Pros: "- great customer service - friendly staff - Positive energy"
Cons: "- No room in the seats - No food served on plane - Crowded -"

Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"

Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"

Pros: "comfortable seats enough overhead bin space."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"

Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"

Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice, the snack was pretty good. Good air conditioning."
Cons: "Didn’t turn off overhead light. It’s usually off most of the flight."

Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"

Pros: "I got a good seat from LA to GTA on 1st jan. it was in the front and spacious and I was also served food."

Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."

Pros: "Quick friendly service from crew and captain."
Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"

Pros: "I liked the boarding process."

Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."

Pros: "Courtesy seating"

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."

Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"

Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."

Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."

Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"

Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."

Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"

Pros: "New and improved food options!"
Cons: "Boarding took more time than usual. They were able to accommodate less carry on baggage."

Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."

Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."

Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."

Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."

Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."

Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."

Pros: "Flight attends are very friendly."

Pros: "One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice."

Pros: "The seat? Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable"

Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"

Pros: "M"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"

Cons: "The crew, the whole experience,"

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"

Pros: "Comfortable flight and was able to get a couple hours of sleep in."

Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"
Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"

Pros: "Friendly crews"

Cons: "Baggage claim took over an hour. Wasted so much time."

Cons: "Another delay on second segment of cross country flight — this time for maintenance issues that were never fully explained. took off an hour late from DFW."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "No power outlets."

Pros: "Great flight overall"
Cons: "We were told that we get one checked bag free, but at check-in were told we had to pay. So much for low prices!"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better."

Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."

Pros: "Flight was routine except that I was astonished and pleased that the movie was “Love Simon”. Thank you American for maybe helping to change some attitudes in the center of the country."
Cons: "The food is still laden with gluten. The only gluten-free option was peanuts."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed six hours. Flight crew arrived late further delaying trip. Connecting flight missed. Promised hotel reservation by American were non-existent when arriving in Dallas. Had to try to sleep in airport. Will never willingly fly American again"

Pros: "Everything seemed to go as normal. We were able to get 5 seats together."
Cons: "Wasn't a dislike, but would have liked to board a little earlier with kids of age 5, 7, and 9. However, all was fine and staff were pleasant."

Pros: "I was upgraded and dinner was delicious."

Pros: "Crew was nice and the staff at LAX was cool. Everything else was ok to good."
Cons: "My checked baggage got left behind at LAX. I got it the next day."

Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."

Cons: "Rude gate agents who did not inform passengers timely about the 2.5 hours delay. Post the delay after the expected departure time, etc. Terrible experience."

Pros: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"

Pros: "Everything was on point"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment was available in front of us on a screen versus an onboard app, which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Oh man, I have so many things I need to say. I tried giving AA a chance, but compared to when I flew on WestJest two months prior for almost the exact same trip (I flew to San Francisco versus San Jose that time), WestJet was by far more superior in terms of customer service, boarding organization, and friendliness. First of all, what bugged me profusely was the lack of seat selection and the crazy pricing for certain seats. On WestJet, the emergency exit seats were available without any additional cost, yet AA was charging $66 USD to sit there. Furthermore, seats closer to Business class also carried a charge of $25 (or something like that) - ONLY because you get to board sooner. I would understand if there was extra legroom involved, but really, it's just a matter of sitting and getting off before anyone else. If anything, those seats should be given to passengers who have tight connecting flights and need to get off asap. even in those cases, you shouldn't be charging someone almost $30 just so they can make it to their next flight that YOUR company arranged within such a short time frame. But the most annoying thing about my trip with AA was the fact that I had to take out all of my belongings from my carry-on and carry them in my arms because there was no room left in the overhead compartments. Excuse me?? How is there not enough room? So I had to walk with my laptop, my iPad, my Beats headphones, my laptop and iPad charger, amongst other things, in my hands to the aircraft. Thank goodness I found a plastic bag, because otherwise I probably would have lost something expensive on that plane. Furthermore, as I walked to my seat, there was most definitely places that I could have stowed my carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments. You shouldn't let people put things like purses and bags of food in the overhead, when those can be stowed underneath the seats in front."

Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"

Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"

Cons: "No pre boarding for family with kids"

Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "- This was an older Boeing 738 plane that American Airlines refurbished. It still has the old style overhead bins and just feels old, - Like on many on these older planes, the power outlets don't work. - No food offered, even for Executive Platinum member. Unpleasant crew."

Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"

Pros: "Legroom was decent and the flight was fairly empty. So lot of space."
Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."

Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."

Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."

Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"

Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."

Cons: "Not letting me know my first leg was operated by AA was very confusing and frustrating. I couldn't find Westjet at the airport at all. Had to guess from the departing time!"

Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"

Pros: "Free military upgrade was awesome. Thank you AA. In flight entertainment was good because it was free. And thank you for the USB outlet, now if you could just do that for ALL domestic flights i would never fly anything other than AA. Also, my connection was late and AA held the flight for me and 11 others to our final destination to Honolulu. Thank you American Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew were awesome, and some reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. Overall good but not great. Nothing to really complain about though."

Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "No internet on flight. No movies on flight. Plane was older. Seats were uncomfortable."
