SFO
Good 6.3

Pros: Boarding was good. Flight crew was excellent.

Cons: Why have video monitors if you aren't going to offer TV at no cost??? There was no option for live TV and to view previous episodes of a series, there was a charge. Other airlines offer some sort of free option. This is important to me. In the future, I will use a different airline that offers free in-flight entertainment.

Pros: Flight crew friendly and helpful.

Cons: Tiny, uncomfortable seating, many screaming children in a very small area and nearly everything on Hawaiian Airlines costs lots of money. Not worth the high ticket price by any means.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: Service was good. The staff is friendly. There is enough leg room. Take-off and landing were on-time. Overall, they seemed professional. I would fly with Hawaiian again.

Cons: Wish the pasta in the meal didn't have meat sauce. The entertainment movie options are good, but they cost $7.99 each. I was hoping they'd be free.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: Ditto to the above!!!

Cons: The on ground experience in Los Angeles was horrible (not Air New Zealand's fault). Made our plane (a scheduled flight?) park well over a mile from the terminals and bus passengers into customs. LA Customs is always a hassle, way too long of lines and agents with an attitude. One custom officer (the final check through) was great, the rest were grouches.

AKL
LAX
OK 4.6

Cons: We booked our tickets and chose our seats and nowhere did it warn or tell us that we were located in a ‘safety row’ where the arm rest would not fold up. So we could not stretch out during our 12 hr flight. This was the most uncomfortable experience I have ever had on the multiple trips I have done between USA and Australia or New Zealand. The seat ordering from the kitchen was rarely available, even after the flight attendants had finished food service and pick up. The flight attendants weren’t very friendly.

Pros: comfortable seats and the flight attendants were friendly. Check in was smooth considering that there were 2 flights leaving within 20 minutes both bound for LA from Papeete.

OK 5.6

Pros: They board back to front which saves a lot of hassle with overhead bags and such and keeps things moving. I appreciated that all the flight attendants spoke French and English and were very helpful when I needed anything. My flights to and from Tahiti were both smooth sailing. My flight back was a red eye and was quiet so I was able to sleep most of the way.

Cons: Whoa. That food was TERRIBLE. I'm usually lenient with free airplane food but wow, I don't even know what some of it was. I my second meal looked like fish and turned out to be pork (I think?). They also only came around with the beverage cart once in the 8 hour flight (just before our first meal); I had to ring my call button to get water. The plane was pretty dated as well. I've seen worse but the screens were dated and all of the movies were fairly depressing. First, I'd suggest a couple more comedy's or rom-coms. Even a couple extra family friendly cartoons would be preferable to all the war/drama/dark options. Second, I'd suggest having the movies on demand rather than play one after another where passengers have to scroll through channels and keep catching movies part way through. A simple solution would be to have WiFi and streaming on flights which was also not available. This should be expected with international flight and would allow for on demand movies and music rather than the dated system currently in place.

Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
