Pros: "Price is good"

Pros: "Easy boarding, pleasant crew"
Cons: "Awful food, no entertainment"
Cons: "3 hours to check in"
Pros: "Snack was welcome and staff was cordial."
Cons: "Tight quarters."
Pros: "HA is flying an Airbus A3231 Neo between Oakland and Maui. It's a single-aisle aircraft. The economy section is more comfortable than any other aircraft I've flown. Not dramatically different, but the little things add up. Back support in the seats are vastly improved. Under-seat storage is actually usable for a change. Overhead bins are capacious and easily accessible. Great choice!"
Pros: "The stewardesses were all extra attentive even with all of the young children on board."
Pros: "New plane Service A meal with no extra cost Got me to my destination on time Music"
Cons: "Could have had better entertainment choices Did enjoy the music though"
Pros: "I fly HA often to Honolulu because they have 2 seat rows and provide complimentary meals on the long flight."
Pros: "The kiosk was out and no one was available to ask questions on the floor"
Pros: "Liked the value of the upgrade. Stewardess was very pleasant. Liked the movie selection. Thank you"
Cons: "Ear buds should be given to upgraded passengers."
Cons: "Rough flight. too much turbulence!"
Pros: "I love that Hawaiian still gives you a meal for free."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the in-flight entertainment was pretty lame."
Pros: "helpful polite flight attendant"
Cons: "There was a couple with a baby that stank as if they had been living on the street or a homeless shelter. Their screaming baby did not bother me as much as the stench"
Cons: "The captain announced our arrival time saying it was Pacific Standard Time ! (It's still Pacific daylight Time). Didn't exactly inspire confidence."
Cons: "Bag check was super inconvenient. There was a line for bag drop but no human manning this line, so even though I checked in and paid for my checked bag online, I had to wait in a line to use a kiosk to get a bag tag before I was able to get back in the bag drop line. Additionally, I should have had a free checked bag because of military status, but was unable to talk to anyone about waiving the fee."
Pros: "I like that they actually serve food, snacks, drinks, complimentary glass of wine, and everyone is nice!"
Cons: "I had my own entertainment so I was fine with my iPad, but some airlines have tv's for everyone! Their movie screens played Hawaiian music videos, after one I was bored! Too many waterfalls, which is something I never thought I'd say"
Cons: "The baggage took almost an hour to be retrieved. Specifically the staff was inadequate to unload baggage. The last things to be returned were all of the car seats, meaning the already late flight for families waited over an hour to leave the airport."
Cons: "Still waiting for luggage 45 minutes after arriving!"
Pros: "big new Airbus A330 plane with bells and whistles."
Cons: "big plane means more passengers and more time to load, unload and get your bags."
Pros: "Ahead of schedule, friendly and delicious meal!"
Pros: "Check in was a breeze. All was on time. The ride was smooth safe."
Cons: "Didn't like the complimentary "stir fry" chicken and rotten cabbage salad. Guess they had to give it away cause if you paid for it you would want a refund and a barf bag. No movies anymore? I guess we were spoiled by Alaskans free wifi and downloads from their app on the flight there. But if there was any entertainment we couldn't have heard if over the crying children. The attendants were sour pusses, not a smile among them. They gave attitude with their service. I kind of felt their pain with the 15-20 screaming toddlers that were uncomfortable and begging for help. How about getting rid of the first class area and making a day care area where children can move about rather than parents up and down the aisles sharing the misery with us all. Didn't have the courtesy to alert us to our baggage terminal. I don't think I will ever get used to paying for my small bag to be stowed rather than fill up the passenger area."
Pros: "Crew and ease of boarding."
Cons: "Deplaning in Oakland"
Pros: "the plane was comfortable and staff was courteous"
Cons: "my bag from island air never made it Oakland"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seats. Good crew. Free glass of wine."
Cons: "No meal options (we're vegan). Only old overhead video with no movie options unless you rent one of the few tables they have on the plane for a 5+ hour flight. Huge box filling a third of my food space for what? There are also no USB or electric plugs for power."
Pros: "The plane was Disneys moana themed. The flight attendants filled my hydro flask with ice and water(42oz). Smooth landing."
Cons: "I did not like the flight coming in to Honolulu. Flight was hot and definitely could tell it was an older plane. No tv on the headset either ."
Pros: "Thank you for the beverage service, and in flight meal and snack. Totally appreciated. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were sandwiched in like sardines. I will never get used to that. Hawaii to Oakland is a long flight to sit with no room. We had to buy entertainment, which we did not do."
Pros: "Empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Entertainment choices were poor."
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped Plane is old No air vents No wifi The food wasn't that great Plane smelled The rows are much closer than typical Just felt cheap"
Cons: "Plane was late departing, reportedly due toi maintenance."
Pros: "nice friendly . lliked the meal both ways"
Cons: "didn't want to pay for the $7.99 premium seat-back entertainment. that should be free No wi fi"
Pros: "The crew on the plane were very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "The people at the check-in gate were very slowly and not efficient."
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."
Pros: "On time Great seats Great service Great food"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the tablet."
Cons: "The seats were smaller than other flights I've been on to Hawaii and other flights within California. Our overhead lights didn't work. There was no personal overhead air which make the flight very uncomfortable, hot, and stuffy. The plane seemed like an old plane, and what gave that away was the ash trays next to the restrooms. Smoking has been against the law on planes for decades, and I haven't seen an ash tray in decades."
Pros: "The plane had groups of two & 3 seats. A nicer configuration to have 2 seats by the window Seemed to be more bathrooms and they were located conviently"
Cons: "Hawaiian changed to a smaller plane than originally planned. I think they do this a lot. This plane had large metal boxes bolted to the floor under the aisle seats all the way up & down the plane My husband & son specifically chose aisle seats for their long legs They could not stow anything under the seat in front of them nor stretch their legs out! It was horrible! Why put metal boxes under all the aisle seats? They were part of the plane's mechanical system?"
Pros: "Not much. The crew members' smiles were nice. That's about it."
Cons: "So cold! I asked 4 times for the temperature to be adjusted. Each time the crew member said that the temp was adjusted, and it would be getting warmer. Let me be clear: IT NEVER GOT WARMER! Furthermore, Hawaiian Airlines had the nerve to charge econ seats $10 per blanket. Even for babies! And we even heard a toddler say, "Mom, it's sooooo cold!""
Cons: "Sat next to two men that should have purchased 2 seats for themselves due to how large they were. Basically I sat in a seat and shared it with a man that was in mine to and smelt disgusting. Not sure how no crew member allowed this to occur"
Cons: "would like complimentary TV channels and movies"
Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable for economy seats. Baggage came out in reasonable time."
Cons: "No choice in lunch. Bad news for vegetarians!"
Pros: "Funny. Kind. attentive."
Pros: "Crew, movies"
Cons: "Too many announcements. It seems like they were announcing something all the time and it became annoying."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Gates switched 3 times and all bags had to be checked because of a small aging plane."
Pros: "It was one of the best international flights I've been on. Overall a very pleasant flight."
Cons: "Food quality is always an issue on flights."
Pros: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."
Pros: "New long haul service is a real improvement in quality"
Pros: "the crew were amazing, very friendly, welcoming and attentive."

Pros: "Crew and generous pours of wine"
Cons: "The food was at best edible"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
Pros: "Decent drinks and food. Attentive crew"
Cons: "The lady who sat beside me kept asking questions"
Pros: "Again, Delta used to offer this level of comfort and service on domestic flights. Great food and entertainment selections."
Cons: "For some reason overweight people like to get the middle seat and then spill over into the adjacent seats. I had to lean out into the aisle to sit comfortably without touching that person. This resulted in me getting hit by every person walking in the aisle or the serviré carts. While I do understand that overweight people have the right to fly, they should pay for the space they occupy like the rest of us. This person literally should have had two seats."
Pros: "Perfectly fine first class trip"
Cons: "Breakfast meal was awful"
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"
Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"
Cons: "Toilets space are below standards"
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "liked the main meal"
Cons: "didn't like the pastrami sandwich snack before landing."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. They were attentive and very professional"
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average. The crew"
Pros: "Every thing good"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "On time and helpful"
Pros: "The staff was excellent, and very patient with the customers"
Cons: "Being 6'2", the leg room left a lot to be desired, and I was cramping after approximately 9 hours flight time (flight to Tokyo)."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Cons: "Old 747 ER needs to be junked"
Pros: "Landed 45 minutes early! Allowed me to take an earlier flight Detroit to Boston which made me really happy"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "I was sitting in a "Delta Comfort+" seat in an exit row. The extra legroom was nice, but the tray table was so far forward I could hardly reach it, and there was no armrest on the window side. The seat covers appeared to be heavily worn, with tears and padding falling out in some places."
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"
Cons: "i don't have any real complaints. Economy seating is still economy seating, so those problems didn't go away"
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Cons: "Cant get used to cookies and drink service on long haul flight. Do not care for salable food choices so packed a sandwich."
Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."
Pros: "Nice and Easy. Great service before during and after the flight."
Cons: "Not being able to choose a seat with basic economy during online check-in. With all the issues about seating nowadays you definitely want to know you have a seat going on."
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"
Cons: "Delayed 12 hours"
Pros: "The crew from SYD to LAX was absolutely excellent! The food is always plenty and hot, and I really appreciate being given a whole bottle of water. Also, thank you for leaving snacks out for us especially those who sleep through the meal service. Very satisfied with the airline so far!"
Pros: "I felt the entire flight crew was there to make my trip more pleasant. The plane was new and had free video and usb outlets to charge my devices."
Cons: "Nothing, truly an excellent experience."
Pros: "Free movies, lots of leg room, interesting for purchase food items."
Cons: "Food item selection limited - they only had snack boxes. The options looked interesting, but didn't quite taste as good as they sounded."
Cons: "We were delayed to redo maintenance paperwork from a previous repair. This should not hold up flights and cause the plan to loose its slot for takeoff"
Cons: "The flight was delayed when the pilot's tablet failed and he had to run to operations to get another. Seemed odd. While this was going on they decided to fuel the plane. Seemed like an excuse because they didn't have their act together on the fueling. Tablets are pretty reliable, do they really rely upon an ipad to get us where we are going?"
Cons: "Individual seat space is small, nor do seats recline much."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Arrival time is better than before."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Free water please!"
Pros: "The crew were amazing and attentive"
Cons: "nothing that i can think of"
Pros: "My flight with Qantas was late and I missed the flight, they refused to move me to a later flight even though I had a paid ticket!"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was OK. I had Hindu meal and it was hot and tasty but salty."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. I am not a tall person so seat spacing was not an issue, but for any one more than 5'8'' tall, seat spacing may be uncomfortable."
Cons: "The people handling the boarding were rude and inefficient. Not a way to staty an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Loved the flight however wished the food selection was better in business call. On the way to Mumbai the option and choice was better and tasted good. I was not impressed with selection and taste it could have been better."
Cons: "You have to pay for food, snacks and water on this flight. there were no complimentary snacks or drinks given."
Pros: "Timely service and courteous staff."
Pros: "Seats are good sized. Food and service was good."
Cons: "Too many flight delays."
Pros: "The air hostesses were first class. Pleasant, efficient and professional."
Cons: "The tv selections. Could have had more variety"
Cons: "Flight attendance"
Pros: "Fast service. No delays. Free baggage check in"
Cons: "Not so much as a free water let alone tea or coffee"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours at the gate. Crew clueless about how to serve the food. Poor old BA. I remember them when they were good!"
Cons: "1-1/2 hour late departure. Charging for coffee and tea!"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "I liked that they had a veggie option for food for dinner service."
Cons: "I didn't like the British Airways terminal at Heathrow - everything was automated. There was no human interaction and the ground staff was scarce therefore it was difficult to ask any questions."
Pros: "New 787-900 went in service last month"
Pros: "Highlight of the trip was BA's inflight safety video."
Cons: "I took a BA flight after a while. I had stopped flying BA in flight service and comfort was poor. I travel business class. Seats were dated (seat cushions), plane was dated, inflight entertainment systems dated (compared to most other airlines). Crew goofed up on food. I had a seat change which I informed the Sr Purser who came to take food order, his colleague who came to serve drinks. Still the server gave my food to the other passenger who had requested to change seats. Which resulted in no food for me. They clamoured some meal fro economy class and served so shabbily (only a pic can show how shabby it was - unfortunately I can't attach one here). In spite of all this the purser showed no remorse or offered no apology. I think I made a mistake in choosing BA, should have never come back to them."
Cons: "The crew were clearly not happy to be here New Year’s morning. They didn’t do the proper number of services, then left many of us with our food trays while they all went to take a lengthy break together. Passengers were using the flight attendants call button, and they were ignored."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "waiting long time for check no meal on board"
Pros: "Service an excellence"
Cons: "The screen was pretty big but quality pretty bad. Looked like 80s CRT. Also bad selection. Luckily it was a red eye flight."
Pros: "Simple flight left later than expect but arrived earlier than scheduled. Leg room was plenty and not like other airline where you feel packed like sardines."
Cons: "Nothing so far just a shame my luggage was damaged."
Pros: "I can't believe how close the seats are. The lady behind me got mad at me for wiggling in my seat. My butt was sore as the seat is so small and the guy next to me had his arm on the console all the time so I had to lean left the whole trip. I couldn't charge my phone for 8 hours of the flight so when I got to JFK my phone was dead. It doesn't heart to put power plugs in every row. This is the 21st century and this is British airways representing great Britain. I guess gb isn't great no more. One more thing I don't eat pork and when the flight attendant offered me dinner she said I only have sausage. Be considerate on passengers that don't eat pork"
Pros: "This was the first time I had flown into Oakland instead of SFO. It was faster, easier and close to my destination than San Francisco Airport."
Cons: "The selection of music on BA flights has fallen dramatically in the last year. I prefer to listen to music rather than watch movies and in the past there was a good selection and a broad choice."
Cons: "There was an agent at the gate in London who went around asking to see everyone's boarding passes. She should have explained the reason for this rather than just walking up to people and asking to see their boarding passes since this doesn't usually happen. She didn't explain why she was doing it until AFTER some of us refused. She explained it was for added security requirements (random checks) because we were travelling to the US."
Pros: "I like that I could book seats for my son and I in advance of check out We are both 6 foot 4 and leg room in Economy is tight I got us seat beside the emergency exit"
Cons: "I found the extra cost exorbitant - OK I did pay it but for the two od us it was much more than I expected"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight and comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing. Not one redeeming thing to say. What a shame."
Cons: "Everything. Massive delay, but not that much as it was JUST before the threshold (by 5 minutes), cheats. Radio failure was the excuse, followed by crew change - yeah, right, not buying that one - more like radio was fine, but crew wanted to chip off work early and avoid last flight (common tactic for a demoralised/unionised workforce). Border is still broken at LGW. THIS is Broken Brexit Britain."
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early"
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "Leg room, food and entertainment"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and clean, and there was enough legroom for me even in economy. The flight attendants were friendly and meal services were well timed. For a 10+ hour flight, this was about as comfortable as it could be."
Pros: "Crew were great."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "One of the worst business class experiences I ever had. Seats are small (7 per row, 3 of which are facing backwards). If you have a non aisle seat you need to climb on top of another passenger to get up (which is unacceptable I'm business class)"
Pros: "Nice plane, very smooth flight, good landing."
Cons: "Small screen on movies, couldn't find charger station for my iPhone."
Cons: "I loved everything except the in flight entertainment which was very limited and boring. Please upgrade it to the high standard and good quality of everything else. I spent the whole flight reading!"
Cons: "Poor service in first class and nobinflight entertainment for the whole flight of 11.5 hours."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea!"
Cons: "Crew did not seem friendly nor as though they wanted to help. Perhaps because they were all young, perhaps some senior crew members to supervise would be beneficial."
Pros: "Some of the cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was in the premium economy section, which was definitely more comfortable than regular steerage but the 777 cabin was old, and the amenities out of date. No plugs for phone or ipad charging; the in flight entertainment system was buggy and the selection was very limited. There was one drink service. Even business class looks worn out and tattered. No wonder the Gulf based airlines are eating their lunch."
Pros: "On time, good entertainment"
Pros: "Service was good. 2.5 meals, lots of water and drinks, kind service, kind help desk. Good room between seats"
Cons: "Seat bottoms were painful. TV screens were super old, but thats a very first world complaint."
Pros: "Accomodating to children on board. Empty seat next to us. Friendly crew."
Cons: "The plane takeoff time was delayed by almost two hours. When we got to Oakland, waiting for the luggage took an exceptionally long time. Don't understand why we couldn't sit in the waiting room until a "certain time" before getting on the plane, we had to wait outside in a hall with no seats. The room was not being used by anyone else."
Pros: "The staff are always pretty good. On the Japanese side side they were brilliant."
Cons: "The flight out out was 40 minutes late leaving and the return flight was an hour late getting off the ground."
Cons: "The ticket was 3,000 dollars and the service was worse than usual"
Cons: "My flight was booked for April 25 and my paperwork actually showed that. Upon arrival at Gatwick I was told the flight left on April 24 and no other flight till April 27 so I had to go to Heathrow."
Pros: "Service here was above standard"
Cons: "The food is small & needs more variety"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great -- personality and lots of fun. Plane seemed relatively new too."
Cons: "BA service is basically Ryanair now, but more expensive."
Pros: "The food was excellent and the flight staff was very accommodating."
Cons: "No wireless internet or USB/Power plugs to charge my devices on the plane."
