Airline reviews

Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"

Cons: "My flight got canceled but nobody responded from flyus.com"

Pros: "Gate agent gave us extra legroom after our trip to Australia in the crying baby section. No one's fault, but a difficult 14 hour flight. Thank you again for your kindness."

Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."

Pros: "Wifi !!!!"
Cons: "Bigger seats"

Pros: "The food its disgusting"
Cons: "Better service and better food"

Pros: "Crew were amazing, superb."
Cons: "Food verity, seat comfort ability, wider range of entertainment."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"

Pros: "Crew was fine, polite and helpful. Seat was not so comfortable as i am tall (no leg room)"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."

Pros: "Great service, as always. Very comfortable flight."
Cons: "In flight WiFi is too expensive and unreliable. Compares very poorly to some competitors (free - in business - and fast on Turkish Airlines)"

Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."

Cons: "The visa check personnel were the most discourteous airline staff I have ever encountered."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I didn't like that my Amex was used fraudulently to purchase 3 tickets to a place I would never visit with Ahmed and Mohammed and respectfully request, while I am disputing this with Amex that you credit me the 3 tickets purchased. Thanks!"

Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"

Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "comfortable seats, pretty good food, extremely gracious cabin crew."
Cons: "Lactose-free breakfast option was fish... I get that some people like fish for breakfast, but to me it was a little nauseating. Just ate around it and was fine though. Overhead air vents could be improved. felt a little plane-sick toward the end of the flight."

Pros: "Crew is so helping and attentive , not like american or european carriers . Inflight dining options in economy was like premium economy"
Cons: "Plane a330-300 was little older and outdated in terms of entertainment system , but since this is short journey hence i dont mind"

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "Boarding was great as well as comfort and crew. the flight was ok"
Cons: "however there was no internet and bad entertainment. You couldnt really navigate on Oryx One and it was hard to select the autoplay or map. There was no remote unlike the B787 between MAN and DOH. Pre-download things on laptops, tablets, phones or whatever ifyou are not going to sleep on the flight. It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Pros: "At gate boarding was I inefficient and managed professionally. On board entertainment was glitchy as the movies paused and skipped the entire flight."
Cons: "The staff were not trained well and unaware of how to conduct proper flow of customer screening."

Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Pros: "The flight crew are all amazing and provide excellent customer service."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "We had booked the flight together and they ended up putting us in different rows and couldn’t fix that. We travelled 14 hours apart :("

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, entertainment system was might better without of options."
Cons: "Crew was not helpful - they ran out of food couple times - for not have spare snacks in between. Gave meat plate to my cousin who is a strict vegetarian with food restrictions ( who had pre selected a vegetarian option)."

Cons: "Seats and legroom too small"

Pros: "Very friendly crew. Plenty of food and options. Always coming by with snacks, or towels, or drinks."
Cons: "Seat width is always an issue in economy, but nothing unexpected."

Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"

Pros: "My husband and I recently traveled from New York to Bali Indonesia for our honeymoon. We were upgraded to Business for all four of our flight segments. The flight attendants were incredibly friendly and courteous and were actually surprised when we only ordered one drink and one meal at a time! The food was phenomenal, especially for an aircraft meal, and no matter what I was in the mood for, they had it."
Cons: "Boarding in New York was not organized. Those traveling with small children or needing assistance were not boarded first, nor were Business and Economy boarding from separate jetways."

Pros: "All the services were excellent. From the checking-in to the boarding. The flight crew could not have been more helpful, courteous and polite. Food was great on board."

Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"

Cons: "Luggage items are missing."

Pros: "Good food includes veg."

Pros: "'Low cal meal for you?' Sorry embarrassing. Nothing low cal really bread butter potato corn thing ... kinda gross, just ate rice which is not low cal. Still waiting for my luggage ... driver will now have waited over an hour... sorry ..."

Pros: "The food was the best airline food out there. Also, the regular economy seats recline more than other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. There was. O system to the boarding and it made for a lot of pushing to get in line."

Pros: "Wonderful Experience with Qatar airways, as always."
Cons: "Leg room is tight, as it's with other economy airlines. Aside from that, there is really nothing to complain about."

Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."

Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Cons: "Headrests on quatar airways are uncomfortable , especially for someone who is short and neck gets very stiff"

Pros: "Excellent meals (3) and great service. Efficient minimal layover in Qatar."
Cons: "Coach seating on the plane from Nairobi to Qatar, for 5+ hour flight, very tight and cramped. Coach seating on flight from Qatar to NY was slightly bigger but not as spacious as coach seating on China Southern."

Cons: "Take off delayed. Plane had air conditioning problems."

Pros: "Good quantity and variety of shows on in-flight entertainment system which is important on 12+ hour flights."
Cons: "Food quality has gone down. Most flight attendants we encountered had poor attitudes - felt like they were doing us a favor when serving us."

"Great flight attendants and overall experience. Will definitely continue to choose Hawaiian airlines for future trips to the islands!"

Pros: "Friendly onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding and Departure was delayed without explanation. But not a big deal."

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Cons: "Short flight great friendly service."

Pros: "Snack, cocktail, quick boarding, early landing"
Cons: "The seat is nice and wide but has a tiny upturn at the back which is uncomfortable after 2 hours."

Cons: "I don’t like how they brought a snack cart thru where you could buy things, making it appear like it was the ONLY option. However, shortly after that, they gave everyone a free sandwich, bag of chips and drinks.... was pissed I spent $14 on snacks that I didn’t need to. Also, the flight originally was scheduled to leave Kauai at 1:45 and somewhere along the line it got changed to 1:15 but I didn’t know that somehow... glad we made it on time... Did not like how you had to have your own device in order to have movies or entertainment... pretty lame. This airline has so much potential! It was just little things that could have been much better"

Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was slow."

Pros: "Kind crew Left late but made up time in the air"
Cons: "Very crammed seats No entertainment even though I called and asked before the flight and was told there was"

Pros: "Nothing to note"
Cons: "Seats were pretty uncomfortable and basic, crew had no idea what’s in the food they were handing out, there was no choice of what to eat except not to"

Pros: "i will fill Hawaiian again"

Pros: "clean and friendly service"
Cons: "more padding for the seats"

Cons: "New app for entertainment"

Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed so missed lunch and wasted more than half a day in the airport instead of enjoying my vacation"

Cons: "Flight was ~1 hour late with little/ no explanation in boarding area."

Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I love the energy of Hawaiian Airlines I truly feel the Aloha"
Cons: "My bag was lost ~ that's frustrating. This is an aspect of my travel, but overall my flight & experience was groovy."

Pros: "I loved my experience with HA. The flight attendants and airport staff are so friendly and welcoming. The Hawaiian music and informative video are lovely touches. 1) I do NOT appreciate the $25 charge for luggage. Southwest does not charge for checked bags, and they are thriving. I think it's greedy to charge for luggage. 2) I wish they'd offer a meatless option when serving meals. So many people are plant-based now and I wish HA offered that to patrons. 3) Movies and TV in-flight should be free, as in...gratis. Other carriers offer free in-flight entertainment and HA should not charge. 4) The planes are nice, the crew is FABULOUS; truly a standout in the industry. They have that beautiful Aloha spirit."

Pros: "The aircraft was relatively new (an A321 Neo), the seats were comfortable, and the crew was great."
Cons: "My wife and I had our seats changed by the airline after we had already made seat assignments, so we were not together on either of the round trip flight to Kauai from Los Angeles. Flights were both full so no way to change seats once at the airport. Aircraft did not change from when we booked our flight and made seat assignments, to the day of the flights. The food served was okay, but I don't eat carbos and all the food served was full of carbos. I choose to not utilize a smart phone, or other electronic devices, and the plane had no entertainment services if you don't have a smart phone or pad."

Pros: "They were a lot of vacant seats. Everybody could've have their own row if they wanted to. Crew was amazing, they made the short flight go by faster with their aloha spirit and smiles."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I’ve been flying for 30+ years and never before seen a plane that didn’t have air conditioning/vents at each seat. On top of that, there was no WiFi, the bathrooms were disgusting and they were charging something ridiculous (like $12) for BLANKETS. Hawaiian Airlines is maybe a step or two above Spirit or Fronteir, which is not saying much. Maybe they could take some of the money they’re making charging for blankets and use it to refurbish their gross, decrepit aircraft."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flying first class, only one bag that was #54. Had to pay $75 for a “heavy” bag; even though I am allowed 3 checked bags! I was outraged. Only flying from Kaua’i to Honolulu. (Then Delta to Atlanta). Very rude ticket agent, then rude flight attendants."

Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful. On my flight home from Lihue one of the young men (crew member ) was extremely helpful to a young mother with a baby who was having problems with her son , I know she appreciated his kind jester in trying to take the time to talk to the little boy and assured him everything was going to be ok if he would help his mom by behaving."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, the last two trips I have made, I had a delay , I'm glad I didn't have to catch a connecting flight."

Pros: "Overall."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food was terrible and my seat didn't recline which made for a very uncomfortable long trip"

Cons: "When we knew that we were going to miss our flight because of the slide by Honale,i we tried to contact someone about changing our flight time for over 3 hours and never got to talk to anyone. So we had to book with another airline and had to spend an extra night in a very expensive motel. This was a very frustrating experience and very stressful. We are not very happy with Hawaiian Airlines customer service."

Pros: "Clean plane. Efficient flight attendant"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Required new aircraft. No communication with passengers. Some passengers were left behind because they didn’t know there was a new aircraft and New flight number"

Pros: "Equipment was clean and comfortable. Flight crew was extremely pleasant and willing to work the cabin price was very competitive"
Cons: "Airport terminal inLihue needs upgrades and more seating."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Plane showed up 2 1/2 hours late. Seats in terminal were very uncomfortable and staff had no clue what was going on. They had 3 flights trying to leave from same gate at same time. Plane seats were also very uncomfortable. Once plane was boarded and on way pilot came on and blamed the delay on maintenance issues and weather. Airline delay caused 2 hour delay getting our rental car. We didn't get to our lodging until midnight and should have been there by 7 pm."

Cons: "Food option is lousy - instead of sandwiches, just give me some fruit or vegetables or hard boiled eggs. And the entertainment options are mostly paid - terrible for kids. We had children screaming on the whole flight and this might have been helped if you offered free kids selections on the entertainment. Even Delta and Alaska offer free entertainment. And I was surprised there was no Wifi either."

Pros: "It was nice to be one of the earlier groups to board the plane"
Cons: "Nothing in particular, the flight was really fine. Great views from the window seat!"

Cons: "My wife and I had completely seperate seats. When asked the attendants they did very little to try to accommodate. Wish Hawaiian Airlines would pay more attention abd be more careful with that."

Pros: "The overall experience was good. After getting on, it was a quick flight. The crew made it comfortable and easy to enjoy."
Cons: "Before getting on the flight, the gate attendant insisted we needed to check our carry-on suit cases even though they complied with the carry-on size standards. When we pushed back and did not want to check them, the same attendant lied to us and claimed the flight was completely sold out. The flight was not. There were at least 10 empty seats. There was also plenty of room for our bags. I just find it very unprofessional to lie to a customer."

Cons: "No vegetarian option for the second meal for my girlfriend. It was just sandwiches, how hard is it to have a meatless option? For the first meal she simply ate around the chicken as no mention was made of a veg option, and the flight crew was so brusque and in a hurry it wasn’t possible to flag them down and inquire."

Pros: "The Crew: excellent customer service! The Food: Top chef Sheldon nailed it! Newer model plane: Much nicer ride however the seat bottom was not padded enough"
Cons: "The seat bottom was my only complaint"

Pros: "Friendly service. Clean nice plane."
Cons: "The landing was harsh."

Cons: "My preferred seat in 4D positioned my left leg into the aisle unless I sat sideways. There was really nowhere to put my feet. Thankfully it was a very short flight."

Pros: "Comfortable roomy seats"
Cons: "On the return flight they charged for tv, the initial flight it was free."

Pros: "Plane was fine once boarded"
Cons: "Seemed like workers didn't know what they exactly where doing got told several different things by different employees . They also had people doing some what seemened to be really Unnecessary stuff."

Pros: "Very nice people and they didn't hassle us about carry on bags like the other inter-island airlines"

Pros: "it was cool to get a read meal during the flight"
Cons: "- The seats were very worn and i could feel the reading material in the pocket behind me. There was no padding on the lower back of the seat. - The airline moved the flight up by 25 minutes. Being late is one thing, but if we didn't arrive early, the plane would have left without us. Moving the flight time up as late as they did is just asking for people to be left behind. - THEY PLAYED A REALLY ANNOYING VIDEO AT THE END OF THE FLIGHT AT VERY HIGH VOLUME OVER THE PA AT 10PM. THIS WAS VERY RUDE, AND THE SAME VIDEO WAS PLAYED AT THE BEGINNING OF FLIGHT. IT WAS NOT AT ALL ENTERTAINING, AND SHOULD BE ELIMINATED FROM THE FLIGHT."

Cons: "Really disappointing that on both our flights we had no option to watch any movies or tv and no worries-fi for purchase. Seems like basic thing to expect on flights these days and especially this long with families. Also freezing cold. All passengers on right side of aircraft were miserable."

Pros: "I enjoyed the food service."
Cons: "The plane landed late and then we drove around the tarmac for an hour! This was frustrating"

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: "I can't tell you how disappointed I was to learn upon arrival in New Zealand, with no forewarning or preparation, that I was to be BUG SPRAYED before being allowed to leave the airplane. I have asthma. Being sprayed with chemicals is a serious health concern for anyone, but especially for those of us with asthma. They sprayed a cloud of chemicals directly over our heads and we sat helpless as the spray settled onto our clothes and skin and into our mouth and lungs. I had a asthma attack, and when I told the stewardess she looked at me and said "It won't be much longer." It was another 15 minutes. I was so unwell that I asked my husband if he would be able to carry me if I passed out. I also unfortunately forgot my ebook reader in the seat due to my attack. When I wrote customer service I received only "We will forward your message" and no response beyond that regarding the return of my device. This entire experience has caused me great distress and I am sincerely hopeful that as a corporation you will take steps to ensure the welfare of your customers by ensuring they are aware of all treatments to expect when on board your aircraft. Had I known, I could have brought a mask and saved my serious asthma attack. I probably would not also be without my ebook reader."

Pros: "The fold-able headrests that allow you to fall asleep."
Cons: "Arrived late due to an accident on the road. In Kauai, there is some kind of policy where they shut down the road for 3 hours if there's a bad accident. There's only one road to the airport from the north to the south shore. We were stuck due to this and therefore barely made it on time. We tried to explain this to the staff and asked if they could get us through quicker or check us in so we wouldn't miss the flight, and they just said we were out of luck. Weren't helpful at all. After having to scan our bags a second time by the airline (after TSA), we were dead last in line, and were told we lost our seats because we didn't check in on time. Therefore we were seated apart, and I was put further back in the plane very close to the pregnant woman with gas and the babies who screamed the entire flight. I had a window seat originally and lost it due to no fault of my own. Someone else was also sitting in my newly assigned seat and when I asked the staff to help us sort it out, they actually asked me to move since he was with his wife. After getting on the plane, we were forced to check our bags that we just got on with and it was a major hold up for everyone trying to get seated. Then, after landing, exhausted, and ready to go home, we had to wait for the bags to come out of the checked baggage claim area. We waited 1 hour and 10 minutes to get our bags because they were dead last and there was some issue with the conveyor belt. This is really poor planning on their part and made the trip even more unenjoyable. To top it off, my girlfriend left her phone on the plane and it was turned in to the staff. When we drove an hour back to get it the next day we were able, we were turned away because they have some new and separate office that is only open during obscure hours that the staff weren't even aware of. We are still trying to figure out how to get the phone back and have called several numbers telling us to call other numbers. It shouldn't be this difficult. I know the phone is in there somewhere. Lastly, food was gross. Don't think airlines will ever get this right. It'd be better to just serve quality mixed greens salads as you don't have to microwave them and they'd be fresh."

Cons: "The security guard made me go through security twice and then pointed me in the wrong direction to the gate and made me miss my flight"

Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"

Pros: "The planes were on time on all flights. The boarding process was orderly and efficient."
Cons: "We had reserved specific seats well in advance, but they were changed without our knowing."

Cons: "Let me start by saying.. I never ever leave negative comments; and two, I apologize for th long winded message.. but I'm still fuming!! My husband and I both had smaller roller carry on bags traveling with us. When we approached the plane through the gate, the Hawaiian Airlines staff told us there wasn't anymore room for our bags, and that they would have to be checked. Whenever this has been done on other airlines, they always return your bag to you as soon as you get off the plane... not this time! Our bags were sent to baggage claim, and we had a connecting flight with a very short layover window! This means that we were FORCED to leave the airport area, retrieve our bags from baggage claim, go through security AGAIN and almost miss our connecting flight! I expressed to the crew immediately after we got off the plane our situation and that we were never even given an option to give them our bags as we would have never opted in for going all the way out and all the way back in to get to our connection (SO stressful!!). Make a long story short, the staff lied to us about where our bags were going, were NOT helpful when I told them that we needed our bags, and showed no concern or sympathy that we may miss out connecting flight because of their mistake. Winded, mad and extremely late.. we barely got on the connection.. NO THANKS TO THE HAWAIIAN AIRLINES STAFF! Will never fly Hawaiian again!"

Pros: "I like that we boarded on time and the flight left on time."

"Everything was well from checking to landing. Only thing would be the entertainment. A lot of outdated Tv shows and movies."

"I do not like that United Airlines charges you an extra $100 to get seats together. Our family of five was separated on every flight and it was really hard with an eight year old. Will definitely be flying a different airline"

Pros: "Worst flight ever!! 7 hour delay because the plane broke down!! Never fly United again!!"
Cons: "They should have offered free flight vouchers!! We got a lousy $20 meal voucher after waiting for 7 hours, delay was originally 1 hr then 2 then 3 etc On Father’s Day, it was the worse day ever!!"

Pros: "the dinner was really good."
Cons: "Couldn't sleep a wink. The pod was not that comfortable. Didn't get the proper blanket and pilllow. And it took multiple requests to get it."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "more room Im 5'5 and I felt like I was 6ft tall that how tiny the sits are...."

Cons: "It was canceled. Minimal customer service"

Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":("

Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."

Pros: "The crew was great. The flight arrived on time even though there was a mechanical delay."

Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"

Pros: "Excellent crew, really liked large overhead bin capacity on this 737-800, and excellent boarding."
Cons: "United apparently insists on making entertainment available only through its United app and personal devices. That may be OK for lots of passengers, but we prefer the entertainment options available on almost every other airline that flies internationally and long distance domestic flights."

Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"

Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."

Cons: "Didn't realize when we booked our seats that they were basic economy and we couldn't upgrade or change them. I was seated away from my husband, beside a very large man who hugged the armrest and munched loudly on corn chips. For 5 hours. Movie headphones were poor. No leg room and I'm 5'4", 125 lbs."

Pros: "The cabin crew was horrible. When serving refreshments during the flight, I was ignored repeatedly when I asked for a soda. My wife sitting next to me, and the other passenger on our row were served. I asked the flight attendant 5 times for a drink and never received it."
Cons: "fire the flight attendant, and find somebody who cares for their customers."

Cons: "The basic economy fare is not explained well when purchasing ticket. Insane that you can buy a ticket for your toddler child who is flying with you but can not request to sit next to them. And no overhead carry on is ridiculous. Have had so many problems with United this may be the final straw."

Cons: "First class seat and it barely reclined at all"

Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."

Pros: "The variety of movies"
Cons: "No daily wifi"

Pros: "quick fast and no nonsense, nothing to worry about on a 30 minutes. Hawaiian gets you there fast and mostly on time."

Pros: "The plane took of and arrived safely and on time. The entertainment was decent."
Cons: "1/2 bag of pretzels for a ~6 hour flight? Are you kidding me! The whole ride was sweltering hot. United flight attendants almost universally hate their jobs and they let it show. The entertainment system takes up half of the room under the seat, as if things weren’t cramped enough already."

Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."

Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"

Pros: "Was told there was a delay of 15-30 mins at check in. Flight was actually delayed 1.5 hrs. Would have been nice if they explained why ahead of time."
Cons: "More food options. Almost wasn't able to buy food. Was told they ran out by the time they reached us in the back of the plane. Luckily they had one left. It was luke warm at best and my husband and I split it."

Cons: "We boarded the plane and due to "mechanical problem", we sat on the tarmac for ~3 hours before departing. This led to missing our connection at LAX and then missing our connection in ORD to State College tacking 6 extra hours to the trip. The late arrival and full work schedule the next day left me exhausted and got a nasty cold as a consequence. I find the frequency of mechanical problem delays to be high and increasing."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Smooth easy flight."
Cons: "The only real downside was seat 22D headphone jack was broken so it made for a long flight but I played some games."

Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Fast and effective. On time and crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "They passed out drinks late !! Too close to landing time ."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable plane!"

Cons: "Having a medical issue, requested for an isle seat but unsuccessful."

Pros: "Generally, a good flight experience. The crew were polite and professional."

Pros: "Great experience. Good service"

Pros: "Flight crew very helpful"
Cons: "Not enough storage space"

Cons: "It was freezing on the flight no blankets. A lot of turbulence and a very hard landing. Not pleasant at all."

Pros: "Boarding was as it should be. The flight crew were friendly and did their jobs well."
Cons: "Two of the movie screens in our row were broken. The seats are rediculously tight. Leg room is terrible."

Cons: "Flight got cancelled cause of issues with plane. Took over 5 hours in line to get to the counter to talk to someone. There were only 2 counter people for first 3 hours. Once at counter ther had to put us on flight for next day. (Just informed 5 min ago that flight has been delayed another day cause of plane issues.) they couldn't get us to sit together which I understand but also put me in a middle seat which I'm clostraphobic so that sucks. Told me that I can book a hotel to stay at and they would reimburse me.... eventually. Fought over that for an hour and they finally agreed to pay for Hotel. Overall the trip was great but the departure from Kauai has been real bad. Still waiting to leave the island."

Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."

Cons: "Plane change from lie down seats to regular. Intermittent sound on TV. Only movies & not very good. Attendant spilled water on me & iPad filling glass for window passenger. Seat reclinred but needed to be manually pulled upright. Not very good value for 1st class ticket price."

Pros: "The crew was very nice as we got on."
Cons: "As usually United over booked and even though I brought my ticket in advance I some how did not have a seat assigned to me when I checked in. Most of the plane had boarded before I had a ticket in my hand. The agent was rude as she could be because I didn't understand how that's possible for me not to have a seat. I think that it's absolutely ridiculous that it's even possible to over sale a plane since there's obviously only a certain number of seats. I think it's ridiculous that people have to offer up their seat and take another flight, I chose a flight time because that's when I wanted to leave and get to where I was going for a reason. No other industry is allowed to treat their customers this way so why does the airline industry do it? Also there's no tv or movies for us to watch while in a 4 hour flight."

Cons: "it didnt happen. i ended up going to chicago"

Pros: "I like the personal device entertainment system -- it really helps to pass the time"
Cons: "The flight was late by an hour. There was no food and the seats were okay"

Cons: "My scooter should have been gate checked to BWI. instead it was only checked to LAX due to a error at the gate. It arrived 14choirs later."

Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "No food. Just some peanuts"

Pros: "I like how courteous the attendants were."
Cons: "We had many delays with the system down. We ended up in lines at the airport for nearly 3 hours. Also, it would have been nice to be given food for that long of a flight."

Pros: "I really appreciate them getting us there safely the crew was fine and it was nice to have tvs on each seat complimentary it really helps having something else to take you away mentally when physically your crammed together and it's really not comfortable or pleasant. I think the staff and crew were just fine though it's just flying has gotten to be something I don't enjoy and want to avoid as much as possible it's that way with most airlines though I think her blue is a little better on seat space and usually always has the tvs but yeah they are limited where they fly and it I is just expensive and uncomfortable to fly I think."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and expensive."

Cons: "United canceled my reservation without any explanation. The Worst customer service ever!!!!"

Pros: "New plane, smooth ride."
Cons: "Overbooked the flight and had to check my carry on, which took over 30 minutes to get once we landed."

Pros: "I have absolutely nothing to say good about this airport"
Cons: "We were canceled (our flight in Newark) were herded around like cattle and then left to fend for ourselves .. With no apologies .. We got jumbled around to three different flights until we found one that would fit they try to get us on one flight and boarded in like 45 minutes and there was no way were going to make it manageable us around again , it was awful.."

Cons: "Flight before delayed 5 hours. Bad snack, expressive food"
