Pros: "I like the ability to have an upgraded seat, and also the staff is very kind and warm"
Cons: "They really need to try and put a passengers with small children or infants in one part of the plane. These parents aren’t held to any modicum of manners or basic respect for the other passengers around them. If I say something I’m the awful person, when I paid the same amount if not more than that awful child who kicked the back of seat and screamed the whole 5 hrs home. I’m not talking new parents navigating a baby and crying, that’s gonna happen. I am talking about the hideous humans who have decide to have children and check out on being a parent. It’s effing miserable."
Pros: "Nice touch to have a blanket and pillow placed on each seat for our red eye flight from Honolulu to SF."
Cons: "Couldn’t select our seats online when checking in. Had to wait in a long line at the gate to get our seat assignments from the gate agent."
Pros: "Crew was great,"
Cons: "The seats are too small for 5 hours of flight time."
Pros: "The flight was superb."
Cons: "Leg room and seats did not recline - would not have flown Hawaiian if that was known"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Customer Affairs Office needs to understand their role or they should eliminate it as it reflects poorly on the company. In short, they suck."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Very clean cabin"
Cons: "Wifi wasn’t working"
Cons: "I really have no complaints. Airplane seats are never all that comfortable, but short flight, so these were okay."
Pros: "First class! Never done it before but was pretty amazing. The extra comfort are great too"
Pros: "9 hr flight, well taken care of by attendants and good timing... food, beverage and amenities."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room. Wide, comfortable seats (in regular economy)."
Cons: "HNL does not have sufficient space outside of security, so check in and security can be extremely crowded."
Pros: "One crew member went above and beyond and took my lei to keep it cool so it wouldn't ruin through out the flight."
Cons: "On our trip to Hawaii, our plane was delayed 3 times and ultimately canceled. We had to go with another airline to get to Hawaii the same day. On the way back, our trip was delayed again an hour."
Pros: "Short, quick but still excellently-served flight."
Pros: "I loved the crew! They were so happy and upbeat. They were attentive and very honest. I appreciate that because sometimes I feel like crew won't say what's really going on to a passenger for what ever reason. It's just a psychology I guess. Not the case here. The woman who waited on me was sympathetic to my diet and had empathy for me. She also gave me a little extra of something they had to ration when first doing diner service. I thought that was sweet. Happy about the blanket provided and pillow"
Cons: "Why on earth would you only offer one choice for a meal??? I don't eat chicken. I feel bad for all the vegetarians and vegans on that flight. Hawaii is a healthy place and should be represented in the meal on the plane. The food was bland and for someone to who doesn't eat a lot of meat it was very disappointing. Furthermore, the fact that there was NO movie on the way there and the in flight entertainment wouldn't work on my computer was really disappointing. Then on the way back I had to pay to watch!? I'm fuming about this. I HATE that airlines are doing this. It is greedy and gross."
Pros: "I had a great flight with Hawaiian. Food was great Movies were ok- I slept mostly Staff were friendly & polite I would always fly with them to Hawaii"
Cons: "I attempted to change my seat but realised there was an upgrade fee. I was then unable to change it back on the way there. The crew gave me the seat on the way there because their system was not working correctly and didn't tell me I would have to pay for it on the way back. Upon my return I was unable to print out my return flight boarding pass without paying for the upgrade."
Pros: "Served a meal and lots of drink services which was great! Really friendly attendants."
Cons: "Didn't like that you have to buy the movies on the plane."
Pros: "The food was good and landing was great"
Cons: "Flight attendant who was working my aisle seemed very agitated and frustrated the whole time. Very short w the passengers."
Pros: "Appreciated the friendly and kind staff members and crew. Also, we were able to catch a head-wind and arrived in LA about 15 minutes early. The skillfullness of the pilots in avoiding several spots of potential turbulance. Bags arrived promply and without incident. (Thank you!!) HA is generally so much more pleasant than nearly every other US airline; thank you so much!"
Cons: "The very crowded plane with virtually no empty seats... The fees for head-phone sets... The slow-response entertainment system for use by passengers... The limited choice of movies involving non-juvenile topics - would have appreciated at least 4 or 5 films to select from that involved some kind of sophistocated comedy, mixed with a touch of drama or high-quality story line. (Did select "The Big Sick" which was of very high calibre, but no other choices existed that were similar to this style blending comedy with deeper and reflective themes.) The small sizes of the snacks, which were actually very tasty (chicken teriyaki warm sandwich and potato chips)."
Pros: "The airline provided food and even a complimentary alcoholic drink."
Cons: "No movies onboard, well, not free. The airport is weird, we had to walk and take different paths to get to our gate."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "We had to wait an exuberant amount of time at the terminal before boarding. Then we found our seats and were in the only section of the plane with young kids (approximately 6) of them. If there is a designated kid area it should be advertised so others aren’t disturbed on their flight. The seats were cramped and the entertainment center kept freezing and/or shutting off."
Pros: "Very good service."
Cons: "No food on the return flight."
Pros: "Great staff, loved the free wine and the gift from shutterfly. The blankets are nice, light and large."
Cons: "Very loud inside the plane. No fan overhead. All entertainment was only for purchase. Food was not very good but the fruit in the morning was very fresh. It was also a very bumpy flight and I would have appreciated if I received more updates from the captain, however, a lot of people were sleeping so that would have been intrusive. I suggest a way for the captain to write a message to passengers updating them on the flight that they can access on the TV so there aren't as many announcements on overhead flights"
Pros: "I had a good flight"
Cons: "It was really cold"
Pros: "Love the wide body place, the meals, the service, and the people."
Cons: "The plane broke and we had a 2 hour delay and then took a new plane, and that plane had no onboard entertainment or wifi."
Cons: "Every time i try to use the hawaiiain air app it may work at home then when I switch networks on my iphone i get the blue page in the app saying "The page cannot be displayed". The few times i've flown with hawaiian (3 this year) each time i try to use the app at the airport it fails, so i have to print out my boarding pass. The ios hawaiian app is not even an app, it's like a slimmed down browser just displaying a web page formatted for a smartphone screen size. What a poor excuse of an app. Do you have an application department devoted to maintaining this app? If so they are horrible. Go look at the ios reviews of the app, i'm not the only one. I can't wait for more competition to come to hawaii against your flights. You folks won't do a thing until some alternative airlines come down."
Pros: "direct flight to Hawaii. Left and arrived on time"
Cons: "No space in seating, every thing costs on this trip, to include $10 to use a blanket, $4 to use ear buds. Any movie even old like Beatle juice for example was 7.99 per movie, tv shows were also 7.99. I have fly about every couple months both in USA and internationally, and all US carriers are by far the worse service."
Pros: "Meal included on the flight was good."
Cons: "We were not assigned seats when we purchased our tickets. We called to try to get seat assignments and they told us to talk to a gate agent. When we went to the airport to checkin, there were NO gate agents at checkin. You had to check in on a computer and then drop our bag at the agriculture screening point. We went to guest services and they told us to go to the gate. We went to the gate and it was closed with no one there. We asked information and they sent us to guest services. Guest services then got snippy with us and told us to wait at the gate. So, we didn't even know if we would be able to sit together or if we'd be stuck with middle seats on the 5 hour flight until an hour before the flight left. Ultimately, our seats were fine, but the fact that no one could or would help us and the help that was there was completely useless and kind of nasty, convinced us to NEVER FLY HAWAIIAN AIRLINES AGAIN. Oh, and on the plane, they have an inflight entertainment screen on each seat, however, you have to pay for EVERY movie on it. This was not the case on Alaska Airlines, where entertainment was free."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and plenty of legroom. And real food-what a treat! Friendly and courteous flight attendants Hawaiian airlines is like 21st century technology blended with mid 20th century service."
Pros: "There was one stewardess that was very nice"
Cons: "Rude service, I have to pay for entertainment, which I never have to do with other airlines for a 6 hour flight. Food was terrible. No options in food. Immediately when the flight took off , they turned the air conditioner up so high and before they even served the drinks, they were selling blankets.. everything was a sells pitch .. I hate Hawaiian .."
Pros: "Complimentary brunch and alcoholic beverage was very nice. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Plane ride was a bit cold. I don't believe there was any wifi even over land and it cost money to watch the movies and play the games unlike some of the other airlines but I think the complimentary brunch and alcoholic beverage kind of make up for it."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is always on time and alway have extra seats."
Cons: "Sometimes and connection flight to Maui when going to Honolulu and takes an extra 2 hours of wait time."
Pros: "Friendly agents fixed seating issue when wife and I were seated separately."
Cons: "Charge for checked bag ($25 each way). Charge for snacks, bottled water, & beer. Charge for entertainment ($8 for unlimited TV or one movie). After charges, nearly $100 more expensive than advertised price for round trip ticket."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised to be offered complimentary wine and also a complimentary dinner. The touch-screen options were great--nice videos and music with music videos (could hear if you had headphones), plus my favorite: a flight tracker."
Cons: "The middle aisle section of our plane was quite cold and blankets were expensive $10. Next time I will bring one. I was cold in my jeans and light sweater. The touch-screens at each seat were frustratingly and unpredictably unresponsive. The check-in process in Honolulu Airport for Hawaiian Airlines was hands-down the most time-consuming, confusing, and crowded one I have ever been through. Kiosk screen had too much info at once so even savvy kiosk users were very slow to go through process. We had already checked in online 24 hrs prior but that didnt save us any time as we had to stand in the kiosk lines with everyone else to print our bag tags then another line to just drop our bags. Entering this check-in area was a shock to the system as it looked like a mass of people. We were directed to a vague direction where our line should be, then after standing in that line for 10 minutes we were told by a fellow customer that we had to go to a different line amd basically start over. Then came the security check line. We made it to the front looking the whole time for a designated spot to dump our kids' water bottles out (our San Diego airport has a liquid dumping spot with a sign), to no avail. Finally at the front of the line the TSA agent is about to check our boarding pass and my husband inquires about where to dump the water bottles. The agent and front of the line line is situated less than 10 feet from the wall where a drinking fountain is, but of course in our way there is a plastic half-wall barrier (the one to guide the line toward her). She tells us we have to dump it there in the drinking fountains. However the kicker is we have to get out of line to do it--can't be let out and come back to her. Have to wait in the security check line again. No, I'm not kidding. So I decide to take all water bottles and my husband takes the kids on through the security check. When I come back to get back in the security check line the person working at the entrance of that line actually was asking every single person whether they had water--guess she forgot to ask us the first time we went through... bummer. We had arrived at the airport more than 3 hours before our Tuesday 2pm flight. With stopping to eat lunch in the terminal and going through these multiple lines, by the time we got to our gate, boarding had already begun. Boarding from gate to plane went fine."
Cons: "There was no air movement on the flight, which caused the plane to be unbearably hot. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "The crew, from pilots to attendants, was extremely professional and pleasant. The airline did an excellent job turning what could've been a nightmare situation to a minor delay. Providing snacks and dinner vouchers while we waited for a new plane was a nice touch. But too many mechanical and/or electrical issues with this airline."
Cons: "Too many mechanical and/or electrical issues. Maintenance not up to par perhaps? Flight was delayed 2.5 hrs due to computer issues on the flight to Hawaii. Then had to suffer through an emergency landing due to hydraulic failure on the flight back to New York. Was not a fun experience watching the fuel being dumped into the ocean for an hour."
Pros: "that it was quick"
Cons: "seats are not that comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "There was a late gate change which sent passengers to the other side of the terminal and resulted in a 30 minute delay."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "The overhead light was left on way to long, which made it hard to go to sleep. I had also hoped for a snack of some kind before landing."
Pros: "i didnt have to worry about starving or being thirsty on the plane"
Pros: "Not much to like. A couple of the FAs were decent folks."
Cons: "Seven-hour delay due to mechanical failure. They finally found a new aircraft but one of the forward exit doors was inop so they had to rope off first and kick everyone in back to coach. This made a lot of people angry-- one so much so that he had to be ejected from the plane. This meant another hour of delay AFTER WE WERE ONBOARD. All the while, the only updates anyone got were along the lines of "There's a delay and we're working to remedy the situation." No explanation as to what was happening or when we would be taking off. Then, as if that wasn't enough, they announced that the flight crew was now over their legal limit for consecutive hours and they would have to find a new crew. I'm surprised there wasn't a full-on riot at this point. Everyone managed to remain calm, though, through the additional 1.5 hours we remained there waiting for the new crew-- with no compensation, no free drinks, not even WATER. Inexcusable, Hawaiian Air. You just lost a customer."
Pros: "Easy check in, affordable seat upgrades and excellent service and attention to detail. If the price is right, I will always fly Hawaiian to Hawaii or to California"
Pros: "Some staff were pretty rude and it was on both flights, which was surprising."
Cons: "Stood in line for 2 hours at Honolulu Airport to drop off bags. We had to be pulled out of the line as our flight was boarding and had to run to the gate. There was no time to eat or anything else. The flight attendants are not helpful nor do they smile much. I asked for something minor on two of the Hawaiian Airlines flight legs on my trip and was told they would come to my seat to see me. (One was for an extra blanket as I had cold air blowing on me and the other was to take my rubbish) They never did. I have never encountered this with any Airline before."
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: "The crew on the plane were very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "The people at the check-in gate were very slowly and not efficient."
Cons: "Disappointed that there was no meal on the late evening flight. Only a bag of snacks. Since we got a hot sandwich on the outbound flight from LAX to HNL, we expected something on the return flight!"
Pros: "The staff were very confrontational and rude. I never write reviews but this as a very bad way to end an amazing vacation. Basically it felt like they said screw you get off our island. I've never had a bad airport experience until this one."
Cons: "The staff working customer service, baggage check, security."
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 is good."
Cons: "They broke my luggage at the counter in front of my eyes and did not even ask me if I wanted to put a claim. Luggage fees are not announced anywhere and THERE IS a luggage fee. When complaining that it was not said anywhere, the agent put my friend on stand by list and did not say anything... and finally, at the boarding gate, seats where available, no wait list! I booked a direct flight but because a restroom issue, flight stopped and 2-hour delay was added. any movie is the price a movie theater ticket $8! For an 11-hour flight, it could be free or at least few old movies should be available in the complimentary package."
Pros: "Accommodating a lot more than American Airlines."
Cons: "13 hour delay"
Cons: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efficient. Flight was pretty smooth."
Cons: "On time departure would have been nice. 2.5 hours late."
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "We experienced a one hour ground delay at Sea-Tac which was unrelated to our airline. The pilot kept the passengers informed with timely updates, and we finally departed about when the pilot predicted we'd get away."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Comfort+ and the seat next to me was left vacant. That was a great flight!"
Pros: "Seat was decent and only a $10 upgrade. Worth it!"
Cons: "Wasn’t clear what boarding group was up. I don’t usually fly delta so maybe I’m just not used to the system but something on the video screen at the gate saying where they were in boarding would have helped. I wasn’t the only one that seemed lost."
Pros: "The food was improved and the seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Early departure"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "No entertainment, plane was small"
Cons: "First delay notification: 1 hour 20 minutes 1 hour later, Second delay notification: 3 hours 15 minutes 2 hours later: Third delay notification: 3 hour 50 minutes Fourth delay notification: 4 hours 25 minutes Fifth delay notification: 4 hour 32 minutes No explanation for reason. Last time flying Delta."
Pros: "Excellent service in most every respect! Boarding was easy, accommodations were quite ample, food was great, and the entertainment was plentiful."
Cons: "Slight problem with making my seat into a bed, which wasn't fixable. Movies were good, except for the trailers before and after each, which seemed to take forever! Didn't get the seats my wife and originally booked with China Southern/Delta, but the substitution was quite adequate! Problems with checking in on flights, as neither airline seemed to be able to deal with this split ticket! But they tried very hard to make thing up to us, which goes a long way to making us feel like we are valued customers!"
Pros: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Cons: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because the first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. I didn’t get the comfort seat I paid for because of this and was not given a refund for it."
Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."
Cons: "That I was going to be charged $125 for oversized luggage unti"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The crew was very rude."
Cons: "rescheduling Putting my wife on a different flight seating us in middle seats"
Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pros: "Friendly staff staff, smooth boarding experience, DC+ positive experience"
Cons: "757-200 outdated for having spent 10 hours on that same plane (stop but no plane change) having flown shorter haul flights on many updated 757 was disappointing."
Pros: "The food was fine and it was on time"
Cons: "The airplane back by the bathrooms were littered all over the floor. Needed to be cleaned. Their were no seat covers in toilette and it was only 2 hrs into the flight."
Cons: "No drink or snack service. No trash pick up. No option to purchase or rent headphones"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "Well, even United brings a tray of waters on the short flight from Portland to Redmond. Hard to believe it was impossible to serve some drinks on this 1 hour fairly empty flight from Seattle. Also, when taking off the plane surged and slowed several times. I had to wonder if the pilot was in training?"
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "The flight was fine, attendants we're good, entertainment options are great."
Cons: "Boarding. It was probably the worst I've seen. A shared intercom system between two gates (b7 and b7a), boarding flights around the same time and our flight beginning portions of pre boarding with no announcements caused mass confusion. Passengers lining up to go before they should, bumping into each other, no info or corrections over the intercom. The gate agent yelling at people to move aside. Overall terrible gate agents and terrible set up. Flight crew was great though."
Pros: "everything was very nice"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "Late and missed my international connection"
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Cons: "*Again, my first choice of main off the menu, in Delta One, had run out. *Not a fan of the Delta One seats."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Cons: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."
Pros: "EZ play newer plane nice staff"
Cons: "Power plugs did not work in seating row and air vents did not work"
Pros: "The entertainment was great!"
Cons: "I was so uncomfortable in my seat."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "On my San Francisco to Panama City flight my vegetarian meal was not there. It wasn't a big deal in the end because I slept through most of the flight. I do find it odd though that on all of the other legs of my trip I had my vegetarian meals."
Cons: "8hr flight with a glass of water, no entertainment, bad streaming, the toilet was DIRTY... what else a kind of a modern torture! Tired of being treated like animal."
Pros: "Low end business class for the money"
Cons: "Food tasted off. Seat and entertainment old."
Pros: "Good trip and on time"
Pros: "Crew was great, accommodating and friendly. Beverage and snack service were on par with other United flights."
Cons: "Flight had issues with WiFi so personal entertainment didn’t work until a few hours into the flight. Although, I was never fully able to watch a movie due to buffering. As for boarding, Honolulu airport terminal is under construction so it made boarding the plane a mess as groups merged with other groups. Not United’s fault but felt it could have been managed better."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi, outlet to charge devices, built in phone stand, current movies, & water every 2 hours."
Cons: "8 hours flight only 1 snack and you have to pay for dinner if you want it."
Pros: "Paying for $1200+ for an 8 hour flight to Guam and all the crew fed us was coffee and water plus pretzels. Oh yeah have to pay for a real meal"
Cons: "5 minutes early arrival time."
Pros: "I liked that they provided blankets and complimentary drinks."
Cons: "They didn’t provide entertainment properly, you needed to have the United app downloaded ahead of time if you wanted to see any movies. All food was made for purchase they did not offer any free food."
Pros: "The landing."
Cons: "First leg of my journey was delayed, so it was crazy connecting to my second United flight to Vegas. Poor service overnight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."
Pros: "Excellent flight"
Cons: "At check in time being told I needed a eta visa to enter Canada!"
Cons: "The food options are poor at best and it's really sad that they don't offer anything for free. My ticket wasn't cheap so I can't imagine they're saving me money on my ticket by not offering better food on that long of a flight. Especially lacking in any gluten free options or anything resembling healthy. A small thing of fruit that probably has 70 calories is not enough to sustain someone on a near 8 hour flight."
Cons: "My new luggage was mishandled so poorly that the bottom wheel assembly snapped in two and there is a puncture hole about an inch long in a different area of the bag. The bag is also very dirty. When I brought it to the counter I was told "Minor tears and wheels are not covered" and that I could "...make a homeowner's insurance claim." Not even an apology."
Pros: "*Sat in Economy Plus so had a good amount of room"
Cons: "*Ran out of overhead bin space early on. *The inflight entertainment worked for about 15 minutes and wouldn't work anymore."
Cons: "Change of seat w/o any notification."
Pros: "Lots of good movies to watch; inflight meal was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line; couldn't get a seat at airport check in and had to get assigned at the gate. Understand that the flight was fully booked but still was a little uncomfortable as I couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "Checked on carry on for no charge"
Cons: "The passenger in the seat next to mine rented a tablet from United and proceeded to spend the entire night playing games or watching movies -- he never turned it off the entire flight. The glare from the tablet made it impossible for me to sleep or even nap on the flight. I asked the fellow if he would mind dimming the screen but he told me that wasn't possible. If United could put dimmable screens on the tablets it would help create an environment conducive to sleep, which is what most passengers want on a redeye flight. Alternatively, privacy screens would cut down on the shared glare. As it was, the flight was a nightmare."
Cons: "Noise level, couldn't use my light as it kept children up behind me and the guy next to me. Had to purchase food if desired."
Pros: "The crew onboard the United flights were very friendly and capable. Plus I downloaded the United app and was able to watch any show I could think of but Landed on Westworld, cause I can never catch-up."
Cons: "Virtually no food included on an $800 dollar 5 hr flight. I even upgraded economy elite. In the equivalent range Alaskan gives a very nice fo-meal in a box. Finally, I arrived for my flight from San Luis Obispo an hour and 45 minutes early and stood in line to check my small bag for the first 45 minutes. At which point the desk agent made the announcement she would no longer take bags. Luckily my bag was small enough to be considered a carry on so I just went to security. I don't know what people with large bags behind me did? then it takes another 45 mins to get through security at which point they see my 5 inch knife on X-ray machine. Which I packed 3 days earlier when I planned to check my bag. Lost the knife, fine, my fault, goodbye favorite pocket knife. but now I am randomly selected for explosives LOL by TSA. I get to the gate the gate agent scans a ticket for the person infront of me. I step up and the same gate agent puts her hand over the scanner and says sorry it is late!? There were 6 other people behind me and this is a 22 person plane. So I still not upset walk back out of the security area because TSA closes the area in between flights and call United. They get me on the next flight out and rescheduled my following flight only a 3 hour wait. An hour goes by and the first desk agent, they have been holding the first flight because enough people aren't onboard. SLB is a joke."
Cons: "The movies kept doing out. They told us to log in and get compensated in a few days"
Cons: "Being told that the United Wi-Fi was not working and then being told we could "Rent" tablets to watch movies on. They should have been free or very low-cost."
Cons: "I had to miss an extra day of work because of the delay coming back to Los Angeles. Thankful the Kayak app informed me of the delay in time to not go so early but once at the airport, my flight got delayed 2 more times."
Cons: "The most rude staff I've ever encountered, at least at the HNL airport. Movies didn't work"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good service."
Cons: "Not really flight related, but having the call buttons located on arm rests was terrible and interrupted sleep for everyone whenever someone's arm would bump a button and set it off."
Pros: "Was delayed two over two hours in HNL. When UA decided to transfer all passengers to another plane, it was such a beautiful flight and the Pilot of the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like the idea that we went given a free meal because the plane broke down."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Same experience on ANOTHER 8 hour flight I have NEVER flown on an international flight and NOT received a complimentary meal or two...When I'm flying for 8 hours. On top of that the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I shouldn't feel a person grabbing a magazine or pulling down a tray when I'm sitting in the seat in front of them. I couldn't consistently watch a show or movie for 3 minutes thanks to the wifi and or app on MY Samsung tablet....it's SO sad that you guys couldn't have them already installed like other airlines. This airline is already in hot water, I expected MUCH better customer service. I will do my best NOT to use them again and tell others to do the same."
Pros: "It's so fast excellent"
Pros: "Loved that United gave us TSA Pre check...."
Cons: "Limited food options on board"
Cons: "Not getting a confirmation email or check-in reminder. No working wifi or power docks on plane (marketed as having in-seat entertainment). Moved to the back of the plane with no recline and destroying my back after telling them I need at least minimal recline. Out of most food options upon being served last and given a soggy undressed chicken wrap for 12.00. Finally, the gate dock was not able to connect with the plane upon arrival yeilding a 30 minute delay at the gate. Unapologetic crew simply ready to turn onto the next flight. This is why I don't fly united."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! Friendly, efficient, and helpful. Power outlets are outstanding."
Cons: "Luggage pick up was delayed. And the constant selling of products during the flight. Come on, a nine hour flight should have complimentary WiFi in this day and age. Also, few people want to pay for on board for airline food."
Pros: "The crew were polite and helped to assist the passengers who has the same seats."
Cons: "The fact that I had to download an app for onboard entertainment prior o my flight is farcical."
Pros: "arrived on time, newer aircraft"
Cons: "$660 in baggage fees for a military traveller who signed up with a U.S. Flag carrier. The whole purpose of choosing United was their baggage limits, instead its just a code-shared flight with ANA as the operator and I end up paying loads to bring home equipment. Will use a budget airline that is more upfront with their fees next time."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly. The internet didn't work to be able see a movie so at the end of our 7 hour trip the airline compensated money for another trip within a year. That was cool!"
Cons: "Entertainment availability...interent/wifi"
Cons: "We paid extra to have seating together in an upgraded to business class. We paid an additional $89.00 each for this option on top of our airfare. When we got to the boarding gate and we were ready to have our ticket scanned we were told, "unfortunately, you two won't be able to be seated together, we had a seat change that affected your seating." then we were asked to go to the counter at the gate to see what could be done, but there was nothing that could be done, the flight was full. So our money was collected but due to the mess up on seating and loss of our $600.00 epi pen medication we didn't take the flight."
Cons: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Pros: "Nothing special!"
Cons: "You have to pay for food! It should have been included w/ the fair!"
Pros: "Good food and very friendly stewardesses."
Cons: "Wifi unavailable HNL>LAX"
Pros: "Everything else was fine. I was even able to access my luggage in LAX to retrieve my medication, which I accidentally had left in there. Thanks for that."
Cons: "Stewardess was so big and clumsy, that she had to hold on to the overhead bins and wake me up every time she squeezed through aisle and scraped by me. I know you cannot discriminate against big staff, but you have to make the aisle wider if you want your passengers to be comfortable and undisturbed."
Pros: "The return flightf we had our be on from S,an Francisco to Atlanta , we had only 20 minutes to make it to the boarding gate. We were tired and didn't have time to use the bathroom nor eat before boarding. This is because my flight was changed. I'm so upset with United."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours because flight crew wasn't on time for the flight. 8 missed connecting flight and couldn't get another flight for 6 hrs. Positive side they were able to get me another flight on another air line as soon as could. United service dep. was not very helpful and messed up ticketing. Thankfully Alaska air was able to fix thier mistakes."
