Pros: "Extra comfort seats are nice"
Cons: "Breakfast food was all sugar, no substance. We were starving because we expected a meal, not a sugary snack"

Cons: "Baggage was delayed almost an hour"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Roomy seats"
Pros: "Plane seemed new, was clean, and adequate space. Staff was good. Overall a satisfactory flight experience"
Cons: "The warm pork sandwich was pretty bad. Soggy and lacking flavor. Would have much preferred a cold turkey sandwich. Would also be nice to be able to pay a flat fee for watching movies on the going and returning flights rather than paying between $4 and $8 per movie. Was seated next to small children which is not the airlines fault but still doesn't make for the most peaceful flying experience."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "They didn't allow me to sit with my two daughters on this long flight. Food was terrible."
Cons: "Couldn't get my Andriod working with Hawaiian entertainment app"
Pros: "Comfortable plane and good service. Everything was on time and easy. Staff were kind and friendly to everyone."
Cons: "Could have been slightly better food but appreciated the free drink! No in-flight movies. Please ask people to use headphones on plane.... free blankets for all? I get cold on airplanes and blanket was $10"
Pros: "Everything was wonderful it was a very pleasant flight. Food was good and movie & TV choices were amazing."
Pros: "I liked getting off the plane."
Pros: "Seats were compfortable"
Cons: "Wouldn't assign a seat until arrived. Machine wouldn't accept barcode on phone. Lady at counter was rude."
Cons: "Same information as the above, Tried to change flight, and rebook, but could not get anyone to answer the phone. So had to book with another airline, so we can get home. So we paid twice to return home a day late. We would really like a credit or reimbursement for our return flight, since a natural disaster (road closed to airport) and no way to contact the airlines were the cause of our no show, which was this flight!"
Pros: "Really friendly flight attendants, and I so appreciate that they provide free meals!!"
Pros: "LOved the Airbus plane with chargers and video screens at each seat! Super friendly crew and attentive continuous service!"
Cons: "The 6 hour flight was a trial due to the uncomfortable seats. They are hard, flat and slippery. Next time I might consider dragging along a non-skid pad to sit on."
Pros: "I flew first class on this trip so it was an awesome experience, especially with their seats that allow you to lay down."
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat, I don't have the slightest idea what my money went to. The my car seat and stroller the were checked were both visibly damaged and had pieces missing. Now I have to purchase a new car seat because my sons is no longer safe for him to ride in."
Pros: "Boarding went quickly Sufficiently watered and fed Amiable staff"
Cons: "Having seat belt buckled over blanket..? The seat was uncomfortable (not something the crew could've helped with)"
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines seems to be able to give comfortable seats with adequate leg room; and decent food (included in the price of the ticket) for the same price as everyone else. Why can't the other airlines do the same? The crew was stellar, as always. I can't say enough about Hawaiian. They are my airline of choice. I will always fly them if I possibly can."
Pros: "Hawaiian provides clean planes and great, friendly service."
Pros: "The crew does a fine job, and the airplane is comparably clean and comfortable. I fly a fair amount however and I am always disappointed to learn what is NOT included in my fare. The direct connection between where I was an where I wanted to be made the difference in this case."
Cons: "I had a very hard time locating the correct ticketing counter. In fact, due to a lack of signs (Honolulu airport) I was in line for Australia before a person came and asked. It was poorly organized. I was disappointed to pay for my only bag (which was carry-on size and only needed to be checked due to a liquid I was bringing home). I was disappointed to learn that the only in-flight entertainment I had available without paying was short documentary films about Hawaiian Airlines or their staff's travels. On a five hour flight it is particularly frustrating to have so little available. My Delta flight by contrast offered multiple movie titles. In fact, I could have gotten another flight for less $ with more entertainment (but going to a different city)."
Pros: "Wonderful crew and they actually feed you and give you a complimentary glass of wine. It's nice to see airlines coming back to taking care of their passengers. The captain came on the speaker to let the passenger with a dog know he personally checked on their dog and reassure them all was well."
Cons: "The movies are free on the window sides of coach but not in the middle yet both have the Same plane ticket fare. It seems unfair and unnecessary for an almost 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable the staff was rude and of zero help. the entire experience affirmed our decision to never use hawaiian airlines again."
Cons: "No vegetarian food option. Asked for coffee, was given tea."
Pros: "Service was fine."
Cons: "Delay at Honolulu because they had tto repair something on the brakes."
Pros: "Good in flight food and services."
Cons: "How come hawaiian airlines, who continually advertised moana and hire they sponsor the movie, but they don't offer it?! I was really disappointed."
Pros: "Comfortable, frequent drink service, actually served a meal."
Cons: "I wish they had internet available; we came in 40 minutes early and being able to let my pick-up know would have been invaluable."
Pros: "Airbus is more comfortable than Boeing in economy class; bit of extra foot room quite nice on long flight. Pleasant crew! Will look to fly again. Mahalo"
Cons: "The fact that flight attendant just left food on my tray when I didn't ask for it. I get motion-sickness very easily, so I would like to avoid food if possible. Would appreciate more consideration towards that, like leaving a note instead of leaving the food without asking me first."
Pros: "The courteous flight attendance."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but okay. At least they offered a meal which is nice on such a long flight."
Pros: "SMS update about changing departure time allowing for adjustment of pre departure"
Cons: ">3h delay due to crew rest need"
Pros: "Meal service offered in coach. Crew was very professional."
Cons: "Would prefer to have a United States carrier fly US planes (Boeing) not Airbus. One very positive step all airlines should take is to prevent the reclining of seat backs in coach. The space between rows is already very tight and becomes really uncomfortable when the seat in front of you is reclined."
Pros: "It could have been the airport (Honolulu) or HA, but either way it was sheer chaos transferring from the inbound Auckland flight to the flight to Portland. We had to sit on the plane until customs was "ready for another group" and then there were at least 5 check points! We even had to go through security again and give up our newly purchased water bottles. We had to pick up our luggage and transport it to another drop point and no one there had a clue how the luggage was being organized - no surprise then that we arrived in Portland with 4/6 pieces of luggage. We were told it would be delivered to us - 2 days later still waiting. NOT impressed!"
Pros: "Legroom is good compared to Japanese airlines. Hawaiian is always on time and has best record."
Cons: "Not fond of their food. Wish I could have my choice of meal like other airlines."
Cons: "Purchased onboard entertainment option. Screen went blank after only half the flight. Flight attendant said she would reboot but did not work until 5 minutes before landing"
Pros: "Food was good! Hawaiian music and warm greetings got us in the vacation mood as soon as we boarded."
Cons: "Free movies on a 6 hour cross ocean flight would have been much appreciated."
Pros: "As above ..."
Cons: "Movie selection seemed kind of thin. My 'interactive' touch-screen video monitor was very user-unfriendly, requiring me to push quite hard and numerous times in order to make any selection. Finally got there but only after much repeated effort. Left a note on the monitor advising crew and/or maintenance of this malady, hoping they would provide a fix prior to further use. (Seat 20 G, Flight HA 26, on Sat. Sept. 24th)"
Pros: "International cost nothing but Domestic cost money. No cash allowed. What business model is that?"
Pros: "Crew were very nice and the airplane was modern and well appointed"
Cons: "I seemed to be surrounded by fidgeting people."
Pros: "I appreciate the upgrade to the first class."
Cons: "Taking a bus for boarding"
Cons: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Cons: "To small of plane."
Cons: "My girlfriend and I booked our flights about 10 months in advance and had selected seats next to each other for all of our Air Canada Flights. Somehow all of these seats were changed without an update to us. We did not sit together at all on any of our flights and were put in middle seats, which is not what we originally requested. We were both very upset with this as some of these were long flights."
Pros: "Everything except food."
Cons: "Food. It's edible but the quality of the food is very poor."
Pros: "Good food, great entertainment. The extra for economy plus was well worth it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but most of the delay was recovered during the flight."
Pros: "Price and crew were good. comfortable enough."
Cons: "No decent place to eat in the airport and no food options on the flight.Also it was an hour delayed."
Pros: "They fed us several times."
Cons: "No wifi. The seats are really uncomfortable. Delays."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. We got here safely. That's good."
Cons: "1 bathroom for long flight. Ridiculous. Very tight and uncomfortable seats. No pillows, blankets, food and drink service only 1 time in long flight and all food is purchased. Basically, an exercise in human torture for 5+ hours. Should not be permissible to treat people this way."
Pros: "I liked nothing except disembarking the aircraft after a horrible experience."
Cons: "On my departure flight from Vancouver to Isaka it was cancelled. They created a new flight for us the next morning but nobody from AC staff knew about it until very late. AC information desk said that AC counter in airport opened normally at 7:45 am but our departure flight was scheduled for 8:30 and we were at airport at 5a. It was utter confusion by AC"
Pros: "The food is horrible and movies not a lot of selection"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "Decent video selection, staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Maintenance issues rendered all three of my flights delayed on my trip back from Japan. Last delay was 3 hours behind :( Food selection was subpar even for airline food."
Pros: "Staff VERY professional. Very easy to use food voucher."
Cons: "Mechanical Issues. Made to wait 4 hours for alternative plane."
Pros: "TV on back of seat. Free movies. Okay food"
Cons: "I had to wait 2 hours for my bags"
Pros: "Movies on plane"
Cons: "Food not enough"
Pros: "I'm glad Air Canada took appropriate precautions to ensure our safety, however..."
Cons: "On the flight from Portland to Vancouver, someone was allowed to board the plane and then leave, with no explanation, no accompaniment, and no way of contacting him. Consequently, our flight was delayed 3 hours while police and bomb squads checked the plane and all the baggage. Why was this person allowed to disembark in the first place? This occurred during boarding, so there should have been attendants there to stop him or at least ask him where he was going. And once he did disembark, why was no one able to track where he went? Seems like an odd security breach and, ultimately, a huge inconvenience for the passengers who remained on the plane."
Pros: "-Staff was friendly and helpful. -The food is pretty good, and comes frequently enough -Cheap! -The flight was delayed, but at least Air Canada automatically rescheduled my next flight for me (which also ended up being delayed, but I'm happy this issue was resolved well before going through customs with a ticket for an airplane which had already begun boarding/departed)."
Cons: "-Air Canada baggage drop only open after 1pm -The aircraft was delayed, forcing my next flight from Toronto to have to be rescheduled. That flight was also delayed, so although I was supposed to be in Boston at 7:25, I arrived at around 11:25. All that extra time was spent waiting at Narita and Toronto. -Although I was seated next to a bathroom, I was at a window seat and thus had no good access to it for the whole 12 hour flight -- most of the time the way out was blocked by tray tables. Overall space was somewhat limited."
Pros: "Fast boarding and unboarding"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight and Air Canads charged me $300! They said thy had some 'peak days' fee (August) and a 'weekend' fee, which covers Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 3 day weekend??! Come on, what a scam. Just charge me the flat change fee not all these bullshit greedy add-ons."
Cons: "The customer service when our flight to Boston (connection) was atrotious. I will never fly Air Canada again"
Pros: "Crew was fairly friendly and a little hands off. Food was the best I've had flying abroad thus far. Seats were okay. Was in economy so I can't expect too much but I would love if there was a little more room especially for people stuck in middle seats. Seats were fairly comfortable. There was a lot more leg room than I have before which made the 10+hr flight better!"
Cons: "Boarding didn't go well for me as I almost missed my flight due to delays (but that didn't make me feel upset towards Air Canada, just bad circumstances that I had to be honest about). Crew was fairly friendly - a little hands off (which is good) but I wasn't wowed by them. Wasn't a lot of movie options. I realize you can't get a TON but a few more current movies would have been nice."
Pros: "- On-time departure, attentive staff and good selection of entertainment to pass 5 hours of travel time - Love the pre-boarding for families with kids - Good overheard space for carry-on bags - flight was not way overbooked and no one had to scramble for space"
Cons: "- Narrow leg room - relaxing in the economy class was challenging (but not surprising experience)"
Cons: "I was really upset that I found out the baggage handling broke my luggage even though I specifically marked fragile."
Pros: "Wow these guys balance MANY flight changes and seat changes with professional and humor that all the passengers appreciated"
Pros: "Air Canada worked hard to get people where they needed to be but security was somewhat difficult although understandable"
Pros: "The only thing I liked is the fact that I arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I did not like the three house delay in Toronto. And, of course, we were always told, it will be just a few more minutes each time so for three hours we were stuck, milling around @ the gate.....well actually between two gates because they kept changing gates.......waiting for the flight. If I'd know it was going to be 3 hours, I would have maybe gotten some food and wandered away to find a place that had a spot to sit. Instead, standing on one foot and then the other, hungry for three house while Air Canada got their #@%*# together and found a plane that actually functioned appropriately."
Pros: "That this flight had entertain system that was on broad. Did not have to down load or use your horrible app."
Cons: "You should provide food or snacks for flights over 2hours with no charge. We were only offered a drink. Some people do not carry credit cards to purchase items."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Aircraft was nice."
Cons: "Our flight time was changed several times on the flight. The original seat map that I was able to choose seats from was wrong, forcing me or my son to sit in the middle seat. This was unacceptable."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and I was able to sleep for most of the flight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed several times and the gate was also changed. I recognize that safety is important, but passengers should be offered snacks when their flight is delayed for several hours."
Pros: "Actually a very good flight, the flight was delayed by less than a half hour, but was really no bother. Slept very well and had enough leg room."
Cons: "The food was not even close to good or even average."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice."
Cons: "The check in process is confusing there are several lines that you can check in and there is no explanation of which one to use. Passangers like us end up making line 3 times is a waste of time."
Cons: "The pressurization of the cabin was very uncomfortable for me. I fly a lot and only notice this like one in 30 flights. I was very swollen after and felt the pressure during the flight."
Pros: "Nice helpful staff, kept bringing by a water bottle to fill my water up."
Cons: "No viewing screens and fewer selections of movies from air canada app compared with selection from vancouver to tokyo. I don't know why our return trip was so different."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and could recline more than other planes. Had entertainment in the headrests."
Cons: "Legroom - amazingly cramped, and I'm only 5'10""
Pros: "Frinedly staff. Clean cabin. Great entertainment and personal tv."
Cons: "I had seat 31k, by the emergency exit. I was told the most legroom and window seat. But I had to strch my legs to the left into my neightbor space. There was also jo window..."
Pros: "Short, quick and convenient"
Pros: "It was alright, just not much entertainment on a small plane"
Cons: "No enough things to entertain me and the seats were somewhat uncomfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable pod seats on the 787"
Pros: "Quite comfortable for economy. The food was good and they had new movies available. The Dreamliner is a great plane."
Cons: "Too many announcements. That's my only complaint."
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Typical noisy turbo prop plane. It was an hour late."
Pros: "Good games and movies; smooth flight; food was ok;"
Cons: "Had to wait for check in which hampered my plan to shop at Narita. I was told check I. Started at 1640 and I arrived at the airport at 1600. The seats were tight and not very comfortable in economy;"
Pros: "Short, brief flight."
Cons: "Boarding the plane outside in the rain w no cover"
Pros: "The economy seats were pretty comfortable and the movie selection was decent. I liked the auto-dimming windows and the light meant to mimic the sunrise. The staff on board was excellent and accommodating."
Cons: "The scheduling for this flight was terrible. We ended up leaving 20 minutes late due to a busy airport, but that wasn't so bad. We were told that upon arrival in Canada we would have to get our luggage from baggage claim and recheck it through customs. I understand that is the policy, but only a 1 hour layover was planned! If we were rushing straight to our next flight, this would have been fine, but when I booked I was unaware of the customs policies. Air Canada knew this and should not have booked flights so closely together. We missed our next flight, which caused us to miss our second flight, which meant we were stuck in Toronto for two days."
Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"
Cons: "I couldn't sleep due to lack of legroom, but its what's expected for a window seat"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable for a long flight. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The food was good considering the air fare. The entertainment was great compared to other airlines that flight alternative routes to the same location. Compared to my other experiences with international flights this is one of the best ones overall."
Pros: "Quick flight, they allowed you to used devices in airplane mode the whole trip"
Cons: "They seemed to have no clue what was going on having two different people come to run the platform, so one just left. Slow boarding."
