Cons: "Everything was amazing!"
Pros: "Flight attendand Tiessy - QR943 - 8 Jun 2019 (outbound Singapore to Doha) She serve us (with kid) very well, with plenty of smile and warm helpful gestures."
Cons: "I really hope that kid's menu can be updated/changed in the system at least 24/48hrs before flight, as that was the first time we ride Qatar (we have no idea the menu) So we only order it once during the outbound flight."
Pros: "The crew was amazing:)"

Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "Own entertainment device"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Excellent meals. Pleasant cabin crew. Good inflight entertainment system and choices. Concerned about short connection in Doha but no problems. Good signage."

Cons: "None to rant about."
Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."
Pros: "Plane was very empty so it allowed us to spread out."
Cons: "Cabin noise was loud. There was a high pitched whine throughout the whole trip."
Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"

Cons: "Wait time to connect from Doha too longNo hotel accommodation."
Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"

Cons: "No food on board!! Staff says it got over when i have selected my food selection!!"
Pros: "Any time dining, excellent food offering, excellent drink offering, and excellent service. Unbeatable!"

Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"

Pros: "Good food. Great staff and service"
Cons: "I wish there was more seating room and unusually long waiting time for toilets."
Pros: "Food was far superior to any other airline food. As was customer service. Airline payed for a nice hotel during lng layover."
Cons: "Clearing immigration in Qatar took about two hours. They had so many staff overal at the airport, but were super understaffed at immigration."
Cons: "Old plane treating the Africans like poor people of no value .. All other Qatar flights have newer aircrafts"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "The aircraft was new, the flight was empty and the flight attendants were extremely attentive! It was great. Wish I had the same experience on the previous flight."
Cons: "The food ,however, was disappointing again."
Pros: "Food was great and one of the flight attendant, who is a Filipina (didn't have the chance to get her name :() is very accommodating and very nice."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "great service, food, friendliness of staff, clean plane"
Pros: "Stuardess verry nice, exceptional"
Cons: "long long long trip in the middle of the trip ther is no water to wash my hands"
Pros: "this was very different nice service, crews with courtesy and ready to listen to any problem.Pauline."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly for food ....."
Pros: "Quick boarding, semi- spacious seats, decent snack food"
Cons: "Not much to dislike, but I still will NEVER fly Qatar again."
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "Getting through the ag inspection followed by security was a bear!!!"
Pros: "Crew was great,"
Cons: "The seats are too small for 5 hours of flight time."
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: "Nice, friendly & informative"
Cons: "Honolulu cookies!"
Pros: "The food, seat comfort, entertainment system and departure on time with an early arrival. I had lost my family heirloom money clip in the seat. The crew sent the flight agent Justin back to meet me at the gate and he went in and looked twice finding it on the second trip in."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "the TSA scanner overheated. They say 30 bags made it into the cargo hold. I saw 2. flight itself was delayed 3 hours. Our pilot felt it was in everyone's best interest to try to wait for luggage to come along with all of us as many things end up in your bags. I would have changed the food. Soggy"
Cons: "Everything was Okrrrrrrrr!"
Cons: "Flight was ~1 hour late with little/ no explanation in boarding area."
Pros: "Great plane - new"
Cons: "I could always use more legroom"
Pros: "Awesome crew. They are friendly and professional"
Cons: "Arrived a little late but not a big deal"
Pros: "Complimentary meals and snacks"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "I got home safely. The flight was quick and smooth."
Cons: "They take such pride in serving a free meal, but don’t provide any options for special diets, either on board, or prior to check in. The magazine shows beautiful salads but they didn’t have anything fresh at all. The flight attendant came through with lunch sandwiches and told me I could buy something from the snack menu after they had cleaned up after the lunch service. She returned with the menu (which was all junk food) and never came back to see if I wanted to order anything. The plane was absolutely frigid, there was no entertainment."
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."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and I was freezing during the flight even with a couple of layers on! Now I’m sick"
Pros: "HA is flying an Airbus A3231 Neo between Oakland and Maui. It's a single-aisle aircraft. The economy section is more comfortable than any other aircraft I've flown. Not dramatically different, but the little things add up. Back support in the seats are vastly improved. Under-seat storage is actually usable for a change. Overhead bins are capacious and easily accessible. Great choice!"
Pros: "The stewardesses were all extra attentive even with all of the young children on board."
Pros: "Large plane. Good hospitality."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for food. Pay for movies and TV."
Pros: "I fly HA often to Honolulu because they have 2 seat rows and provide complimentary meals on the long flight."
Pros: "Food was not great but it is always nice to have a hot meal provided on the flight and I also appreciated the Maui Brewing beer they offer during beverage service."
Cons: "I was seated in the back row and found it difficult to rest/relax on this overnight flight from Auckland to Honolulu because the flight crew was in the back socializing very loudly to the point where it was unprofessional. I could tell that I was no the only guest annoyed by the noise.It was very inconsiderate and unprofessional to behave this way while on the job especially during the announcements that I couldn ot understand because of the talking behind me. I fly Hawaiian Airlines often and have never had this type of issue. I was surprised that none of the other crew members said anything to the noisy group of hosts/hostesses."
Pros: "The kiosk was out and no one was available to ask questions on the floor"
Cons: "Rough flight. too much turbulence!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were happy and wanted to help out unlike most airlines."
Cons: "That you had no "free" movies"
Pros: "The plane was a newer and larger model so the seats were spaced farther apart . Love the POG."
Cons: "Meal could have been better...chicken didn't have much taste."
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."
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: "The baggage took almost an hour to be retrieved. Specifically the staff was inadequate to unload baggage. The last things to be returned were all of the car seats, meaning the already late flight for families waited over an hour to leave the airport."
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."
Pros: "I missed the Kahului flight so my second leg started in Honolulu. Pilot aborted the take off half way down the runway. Said there was an indication light that said the brakes had heated up and it would be 15 minutes to let them cool. Then said we would have go back to gate, saying it would be a little longer. These "little longer" efforts went on for just short of 3 hours! When we got in on the other end the gate was unavailable and we were forced to wait another hour on the ground there. 9 FREAKING hours in that plane next to gal and her toddler in her lap... bummer for me, but this poor gal missed her connection to CLEVELAND... gave me a perspective of what REALLY SUCKS."
Pros: "Check in was a breeze. All was on time. The ride was smooth safe."
Cons: "Didn't like the complimentary "stir fry" chicken and rotten cabbage salad. Guess they had to give it away cause if you paid for it you would want a refund and a barf bag. No movies anymore? I guess we were spoiled by Alaskans free wifi and downloads from their app on the flight there. But if there was any entertainment we couldn't have heard if over the crying children. The attendants were sour pusses, not a smile among them. They gave attitude with their service. I kind of felt their pain with the 15-20 screaming toddlers that were uncomfortable and begging for help. How about getting rid of the first class area and making a day care area where children can move about rather than parents up and down the aisles sharing the misery with us all. Didn't have the courtesy to alert us to our baggage terminal. I don't think I will ever get used to paying for my small bag to be stowed rather than fill up the passenger area."
Pros: "Crew and ease of boarding."
Cons: "Deplaning in Oakland"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seats. Good crew. Free glass of wine."
Cons: "No meal options (we're vegan). Only old overhead video with no movie options unless you rent one of the few tables they have on the plane for a 5+ hour flight. Huge box filling a third of my food space for what? There are also no USB or electric plugs for power."
Pros: "Nice entertainment options, complimentary dinner w/ wine, plenty of leg and elbow room, the plane was very quiet (seated forward of the wing), the crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The seatback wasn't the most comfortable, but still a 4 out of 5."
Pros: "i didnt have to worry about starving or being thirsty on the plane"
Pros: "Crew were relatively nice until there were mass delays deboarding and they refused to keep us informed as to what was happening. Also, delays at the start (with no AC, so it was very hot in cabin)."
Cons: "I could not eat the food as there were eggs in pretty much all of it (I have an allergy), and I was given no other options, which is unacceptable, especially given that this was a long international flight. Wine was terribly sweet. Touch screen basically inoperative (very tiresome)."
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."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant. Other than that the plane was packed and the bathrooms got dirty very quickly. Food was terrible! When I booked the flight, tried to find special diet options but were not available. Flight attendant told another passenger that they don't offer special meals."
Pros: "Crew mostly left me alone to sleep. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Seatbelt requirement on top of the blanket (not my experience with other airlines on long haul flights). The lights on the overnight flight were not dimmed sufficiently."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth (kudos to the Pilot). The dinner was delicious (best I've had on Hawaiian Airlines). Most of the crew members were very kind and courteous. Even friendly to the crying kids. Loved the selection of entertainment that was readily available. That definitely helped with the long flight."
Cons: "There was one specific crew member that was just unfriendly & looked irritated most of the flight. Especially when he came around pouring water & to pick up trash."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the tablet."
Cons: "The seats were smaller than other flights I've been on to Hawaii and other flights within California. Our overhead lights didn't work. There was no personal overhead air which make the flight very uncomfortable, hot, and stuffy. The plane seemed like an old plane, and what gave that away was the ash trays next to the restrooms. Smoking has been against the law on planes for decades, and I haven't seen an ash tray in decades."
Pros: "The plane had groups of two & 3 seats. A nicer configuration to have 2 seats by the window Seemed to be more bathrooms and they were located conviently"
Cons: "Hawaiian changed to a smaller plane than originally planned. I think they do this a lot. This plane had large metal boxes bolted to the floor under the aisle seats all the way up & down the plane My husband & son specifically chose aisle seats for their long legs They could not stow anything under the seat in front of them nor stretch their legs out! It was horrible! Why put metal boxes under all the aisle seats? They were part of the plane's mechanical system?"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly & courteous. Flight seemed shorter than the expected 4-1/2 hours of misery."
Cons: "1. At the airport in Maui, once we used the self-check-in to print our boarding passes and luggage check-in tags other airlines would have had someone take you luggage from you and you're done. Here, we now have to take our luggage and get into a long line where we then take it to another counter. 2. Why were there twice as many people in the TSA pre-check line as in the regular line? My son and his GF did not have TSA pre-check, yet they went through security much faster than my wife & I. 3. Seats too narrow. I was snugly fit in, and I had to stand in order to get something out of my front pant's pocket. 4. Not enough legroom and no way to stretch my leg (and my very painful knee). We sat in row 17. It was right side bulkhead on 2-3-2 configuration. There was no way to stretch out my knee. The configuration of the inside of the aircraft placed the bulkhead wall too close to the seat. My leg was at about 70 degrees the entire flight (0 degrees is completely straight). Notably, the same row on the left side of the plane had about another 12 inches of leg-room. That's just the way the plane was configured. 5. No WiFi 6. Entertainment device rip-off. I wasn't interested in renting an entertainment device, but I was offended by their offer. If you signed up for it at the desk before boarding you would pay $15 and would get the device 20 minutes after take-off. If you waited until you were on the plane you would pay $17. The worse part: YOU WOULDN'T GET THE DEVICE UNTIL 2 HOURS INTO THE FLIGHT!!!"
Pros: "I don't travel too often so when I took Hawaiian Airlines, I was pleasantly surprised that they serve a complimentary meal while on board. During my flight, they served chicken with white rice and mixed vegetables, a cookie for dessert and water. Oh, and a complimentary red or white wine to go with your dinner. Not too shabby! Great service by the flight attendants as well."
Cons: "Even though I don't travel often, I feel like I've been on enough planes to know that free TV and movies are essential. Hawaiian Airlines lacked that feature. A few episodes or "series" that they had were interesting but not enough to keep me fully engaged. You had to pay for individual movies ($7.99) and even though it isn't a terrible price for a movie, I still wasn't willing to pay. If movies couldn't be free, then why not the regular TV shows? I think folks would have been okay with TV shows if the options were plentiful."
Pros: "TSA is rediculous and affects how people interact with your customer servce. Your customer service in Honolulu needs a lot of work. Pointing people to a single counter person to obtain a seat on a plane after the person has already been on a 9 hour Hawaiian flight is beyond disrespectful. It is cruel. It was close to a couple of months that I had purchased the ticket and I get on the Plane in Auckland only to find I would need to process through TSA yet another time in order to get to the counter and obtain my seat. 3 hours in a TSA line allowed 20 minutes to get to that counter. I also needed to find a private space to give myself my insulin. I do not do that in public bathrooms or even my own bathroom..... but it never happened because I stood in Customs line and then Imigration line and yet again the third TSA line. I think TSA held up over 200 of us because they went to lunch. He were stopped still with absolutely no progress for over an hour."
Cons: "You and all the other airlines need to work together and improve TSA. The counter person at Hawaiian in Honolulu was unprofessional and capricious. She preferred to service a huge dog rather than myself, even though it was my turn . She also answered a male who cut in line rather than the person next in line. She did not know what was available and did not show any compassion for international travelers. We were treated as cattle."
Pros: "The spacious seats are wonderful. The cleanliness! The movie selections. The incredibly professional, courteous, kind flight attendants. Free meal! (it's a long flight) Being able to buy a half bottle of red wine. The humor of the gate attendant during and after we boarded was a treat. It was a fully booked flight but managed to avoid that pushy, hectic atmosphere while boarding and after. Very peaceful, easy flight along the lines of what Virgin and Jet Blue introduced a decade ago. The flight ended up feeling like part of the vacation. Will always choose Hawaiian in the future."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, engaged, helpful"
Cons: "In-flight food still needs some work."
Pros: "Our area had a small child who had just come off a flight from Australia to Hawaii and was screeching (not screaming). The attendant was able to help the mom with her and was very understanding and patient. Her compassion helped the rest of the passengers deal with the deafening noise."
Cons: "Mediocre food. Overcooked chicken and veggies. The usual."
