Very impressed & looking forward to our return flight home."

Cons: "No food option for more restrictive diets."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Expensive movie options"
Pros: "One of the worse flight experiences, if not the worst. The crew was indifferent and disrespectful to our dietary restrictions on a 5 HOUR FLIGHT! It’s worth noting that when I say “our”, I also refer to my visibly pregnant wife. We asked one crew member for water (WATER!) and were told they ran out. Moments later, the same crew member was passing out water bottles to other passengers. There’s much more to say about our flight, but if theses two instances don’t prompt a change, then the rest won’t matter anyway."

Pros: "Very kind staff, hot food!"
Cons: "No free movies"
Pros: "I am so happy you sent a survey! I have been wanting to sen a compliment to the women that was at the gate counter the day of my flight 11/30/17 flt 41. I watched her handle multiple difficult situations. In a severely stressful moment insane her handle with such grace and professionalism. She deserves a personal pat on the back and a raise:)"

Pros: "Really friendly attendants"
Cons: "Delayed from Minneapolis me miss this flight. Now I have to fly to Seattle."
Pros: "Acomadations were ok food and drink service were consistant good entertainment and hospitality"

Pros: "Love the preloaded Ipads in first class. Not sure what entertainment was in coach."
Pros: "Not really Thier fault as they were waiting on the ground crew but they could have at least turned on the A/C. We were very hot in there waiting."
Pros: "I like the customer service on the plane. They were pleasant. The plane was clean the planes was pretty empty. It was comfortable."
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"
Cons: "The HNL airport check in is very crowded and confusing--everyone just crowds and no one knows where to go"
Cons: "The original 9/23 9:05 am flight from SF to Honolulu was cancelled. 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. This was such a terrible experience, I wasted 9 hours at the airport and had to cancel so many activities I have planned on 9/23."

Pros: "Friendly team, efficient boarding, clean."

Pros: "Relaxing and free tv."
Cons: "Very hospitable ."
Pros: "Airbus seats were comfy. Air hostesses were nice, but I didn't get anything because I was sleeping the whole flight."
Cons: "Did not like the girl at the check in counter. No smiles at all, not a good representation of aloha Hawaiian spirit. She looked like she hates her job. She couldn't assign me a seat right there and she told me she'll call me up to boarding counter. She also promised to get me an aisle seat on my next flight but she gave me window instead."
Pros: "Everything l just Love it .takin off and landing was Absolutely Flawless congratulations TO The Pilot."
Cons: "Absolutely,Nothing At all"
Pros: "Some really good Hawaiian nationalist documentaries! Great to watch, great that they were free. More real Hawaiian stuff! Food AND Wine included was really a plus. It takes you back to how flying used to be, and certainly seemed to keep everyone settled down on what could be a long flight otherwise. It certainly helps where the small seats are concerned- you sit still & feel pampered. Pre- brewed tea A GREAT way to go, as a teabag in a tiny cup of non boiling water doesn't work & it must be more work for the staff to juggle it."
Cons: "I know there MUST be a technical reason for the long slow winding approach to Kahului, but it was really rough on my wife and made her sick - twice, as it took so long- after such a good flight. I know probably unavoidable, but had to say."
Pros: "It was easy helpful and a delight . All of you are great and had a good time I'll do it again."
Cons: "Little probably legroom, I didn't know how to work the monitor that's my bad. Little more assistance than that be great Terriers thank you for a good time. :-)"
Pros: "Atmosphere at board during the flight"
Pros: "Atmosphere, service."
Cons: "A who;e family of like 8 people getting kicked off the plane for something the patriarch said to a flight attendant. To be fair, I have no idea what he said, and it very well may have been warranted, I don't know, but it made me sad."
Pros: "I travel extensively for work and am quite used to the drudgery of poor equipment and exhausted flight attendants. But, not so with Hawaiian Airlines. From the new A330 airplane to the gentleness of the staff, what a pleasant surprise. I was expecting to board a bucket of bolts and anticipated the customer experience to be sub par just because I didn't think they had the volume to merit the equipment and properly trained personnel. Boy, I couldn't have been more wrong. That airplane was a Cadillac in the air and the flight attendants were genuinely kind. Well done Hawaiian Airlines. Well done."
Cons: "Extra charge for luggag"
Pros: "Crew was nice, food was ok, comfortable, went by quickly."
Cons: "A little cheap selling blankets and headsets"
