Transferring from International to Domestic/Mainland was a PITA; Hawaiian could not handle the rebooking of bags quickly after customs, etc. Eventually took it over to Terminal One where they were able to do it quickly. The "snack" or whatever on the flight was - Pepperoni Bagel - and for anyone who doesn't eat Pepperoni, tough luck. I guess they consider it too difficult to have Plain Bagel for anyone else. We don't count; they don't want our business. Then I got to SJC and found they had smashed one corner of my (brand new) suitcase such that it wouldn't roll because that corner collapses inward. They explain to me was SOL, as "they can do anything to the outside and they're not responsible". So if you fly Hawaiian Air, expect to have to replace luggage routinely. They don't want my business, they won't get my business.

Lack of Food choices - no kosher. halal or vegan. Also Hawaiin airlines switched me and my travel Companion to seats far away from one another. Additinally, I had to Pay extra $150 for “preffered seats” with the same legroom as basic economy! I will never want to fly HAWAIIAN again

Great flight experience going from Honolulu to Kauai. Nice short flight, so some things don't really qualify for an excellent rating, food & entertainment, since there wasn't any. Check in was nice and easy, crew was great, I'm 6'7" so the seats could have had a bit more room for my knees. But I survived.

Kayak reserved return seating for me but did not book it. I paid $115 extra and my seat was not reserved.

Great flight. Had free internet for whole flight. Made it so much more enjoyable

The jet bridge electricity was out. We were boarding in the dark. No air-conditioning and it was extremely hot. Every person that came out of that jet bridge into the aircraft was profusely sweating. Truthfully, sitting in first class, it was no Hawaiian hospitality. Just a bunch of senior flight attendants are doing their routine over and over.

The in flight speakers little touches of humor were entertaining.

The crew was quick and efficient. The flight was uneventful and arrived slightly early.

Short flight but delayed. Since its a short flight no food or entertainment necessary

Having movies helps past time I wish going Vegas had something
