Pros: "Very"
Cons: "Easier access to entertainment"

Pros: "9 hr flight, well taken care of by attendants and good timing... food, beverage and amenities."

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

Pros: "First time I flew with Hawaiian and it was the best service ever! Oakland to final destination Lihue. Definitely my number one airline and will be referring folks!"

Pros: "The crew was great. Super apologetic for the terrible delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours and 2 of those hours we spent on the plane before they deplaned us because they couldn't hold us any longer. One day of my 4 day vacation was completely ruined"

Pros: "Great flight crew, very nice. Yummy food."

Pros: "No layover"

Pros: "The breakfast on the way to Honolulu and the lunch on the way back to the mainland. The food was very tasty and made the long flight seem shorter."

Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff was, and how each seat had a USB port for charging devices, and the phone holders for watching things."
Cons: "How tight and uncomfortable the seats were, and how the circulation within the plane made me smell everyone and everything."

Pros: "The staff has very kind and helpful. They provided a small meal and complimentary drinks."
Cons: "No entertainment. They have TVs set up, so the ability is thee. On a 5 1/2 hr flight, they should provide a movie etc."

Pros: "Left on time arrived a little late because weather. It was windy"

Pros: "Comfort seating"
Cons: "Plane left late and arrived late 7"

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

Pros: "It was nice to get a small meal on the 6hour flight as well as a complimentary drink for all"
Cons: "This was by far one of the oldest planes I have been on in several years. Gawain is known for their entertainment, but this planes had only shared screens and our radio/sound was not working including the lights and call buttons. Upon reporting this to a flight attendant, I was told they would return to work on it, but it wasn't until I reported it again that another attendant worked with us to (unsuccessfully) attempt to restart the system. In the end we just had no entertainment for the flight."

Pros: "Entertainment, comfort kits, and drinks were thoughtful. Staff extremely friendly. Food was better than most domestic airlines. Seats were large enough for comfortability during a long flight. Seats against walls still recline."
Cons: "Can't pick seats online for international flights, so we're stuck with whatever is leftover. Planes not particularly clean; lots of crevices with years of debris."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly. All movies were free. The staff was always so courteous. There was also adequate overhead storage."
Cons: "Hot lunch could have been better. The chicken was over cooked."

Cons: "Too narrow seats. On a5 hr flight it felt so uncomfortable"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Loved the ease of boarding, the flight was on time, the crew were friendly and accommodating, the food was good and i was not as nervous as usual because the atmosphere was calm and welcoming."
Cons: "i spent money to upgrade our seating. The upgrade was supposed to include an entertainment package, that never materialized. We entertained ourselves but it was disappointing."

Pros: "Beverages and water, Snacks and a meal (with an adult beverage) All for FREE"
Cons: "I noticed one ladies chair in the front, her monitor wasn't holding up correctly."

Pros: "very spacious legroom Friendly crew"
Cons: "Wished entertainment system was free like other airlines."

Pros: "Crew were nice. Big plane with lots of overhead storage was helpful."
Cons: "Picked my seats online when I booked and was told I didn't have reserved seats during check in. Had to get seats assigned last minute over the phone (very last row), and the customer service experience on the phone was awful."

Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats EVER! REALLY BAD!"

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: "Modern aircraft, clean plane, courteous attendants, well trained pilot, extremely smooth landing."
Cons: "Food was so, so. Good food helps pass the time on such long flights."

Pros: "Hawaiian airline food is good"
Cons: "The airport and airline generally is very uncomfortable and there are no Hawaiian airlines hosts or hostesses to help out."

Pros: "I appreciated the free meal and the free mai tai since not that many companies offer free meals to customers anymore."
Cons: "The crew lacked an "aloha spirit." We were excited to go to hawaii but the crew didnt seem friendly. When I asked if I could pass thru their area to get to the bathroom on the other aisle, I think I saw the stewardess roll her eyes as she got up out of her chair. It couldve been because it was the 0700 flight. Older plane. Its one with one big screen in the middle and tiny little screens scattered throughout. Didnt show a movie - instead showed clips of hawaiian singers. Chairs were rickety and hard to lay back or put forward."

Pros: "Very friendly, fed us nice breakfast and snack later. Weee always offering water very nice of a flight. The free rum punch was a nice touch. Seats reclined nicely and ple t leg roomin coach"

Pros: "I booked late, but I got a seat pretty close to the one I chose, and they made sure I got an aisle, like I specified. They gave us a complimentary glass of rum punch (if you're 21+) and I love this drink! Sweet and satisfying. I believe they do this on all their flights."
Cons: "This didn't affect me personally, but you do have to pay $15 extra to use their entertainment system. I'm glad I downloaded a movie and some tv shows to my tablet before going."

Pros: "Crew was really nice and the service was great. Food was better than what you could quickly grab at the airport and appreciated the frequent beverage service."
Cons: "It seemed unecessarily cold and was a little surprised that entertainment cost extra on a long flight. The only thing complimentary were a few promo videos for Hawaii and the radio."

Cons: "Once we got to the airport we lost all assigned seating. Not good."

Pros: "I loved the hospitality of the crew!! Very pleasant."
Cons: "The food was very cheap and processed. Like they didn't care what was served. No options for anything healthy"

Pros: "Smooth flight, clean aircraft"
Cons: "Poor attitude of male flight attendant, came across as not really caring about the needs of passengers, plane was dated - could not look at snack menu on touch screen, no duty free items or catalog despite being advertised."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the trip was smooth"
Cons: "Food-poor. A plastic bag handed in your lap with 1/2 turkey on white and 1/2 Egg salad sandwich on stale wheat bread! It's so far from the service Hawaiian used to provide that it ruins the reputation more than helps it. Why bother? It's obvious that it's only a half hearted attempt at best. Asked for a better seat n got the seat next to the restroom. It was literally 5 1/2 hours on a flying toilet with people constantly in and out the whole trip. I should at least been warned."

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 seats are a bit more spacious than other airlines. The headrests fold to cradle the head so you can nap and not get a cramp int eh neck. Why dont all airlines have those?!"

Pros: "Our flight was on time. The staff was very friendly. Everything was clean. We were served a complimentary meal as well as drinks and a snack. (So few airlines include a meal nowadays.) Pleasant in every way!"

Pros: "Staff was very nice. plane was clean. We left on time."
Cons: "Tv was broke for my seat. All they offered was a different seat away from my wife and son."

Pros: "There was one male worker who tried to bring me extra coleslaw cause he saw the other flight attendants not offer me anything instead of a meat centered meal. I appreciated that but didn't catch his name."
Cons: "The workers were so rude - especially a woman named Mi. they had no vegetarian options on the plane for food and basically laughed at me when I asked for it. They had no free entertainment at all not even a movie for everyone on the main monitors. They asked for volunteers to check their bags and I volunteered and when I made a connecting flight to Kauai (final stop Oahu which is a 35 min flight) I tried to switch my flight to an earlier one because I realized That I had a four hour layover before my 35 min flight -_- and they said that I would have been able to but since I checked my carry on I couldn't. And they said it was because my bag would get there much later than me - which I was upset about but understood. Fast forward 4 1/2 hours later and I land on Oahu. My bag is sitting at the terminal because it came over on a plane that got there before me. Totally unhappy - I fly to California and back almost every month and I've never had an experience like this"

Cons: "We boarded a hot plane. The A/C was turned on then we smelled kerosene. We de-boarded and sat - the gate crew were fine but really didn't know what was going on. After repeated erroneous emails from HAL, the flight was actually scrubbed until HAL could get a crew and plane from Honolulu. The emails actually gave us new departure times that had already passed!) Thanks to some terrific work by the HAL gate crew, we were able to get seats on an Alaska flight. Five hours later than our original schedule but much better than our HAL schedule which finally left 7+ hours after schedule."

Pros: "The cleanliness. No chaos."

Cons: "Food and food service was poor. A passenger in first class should never have to ask for something and attendants should not spend most of the flight holed up up front reading and talking. Movie selection for a frequent traveler is really bad"

Pros: "Friendly service x"
Cons: "There were no blankets supplied so I would have packed one. Seats are uncomfortable Otherwise all was good"

Pros: "staff were great and friendly and helpful"
Cons: "not a big deal but 2 things: 1) plane was a bit dirty in between the seats. 2) we also were in the terminal but getting food when we heard our names on the overhead pager saying they were going to close the gate in 5 minutes and if we didn't get on we'd be left behind. That was 30 minutes before take off that they were going to close the gate. We rushed over and ended up boarding and then waiting on the plane forever. not sure whey they need to get everyone on so early. I guess i'm used to flying southwest airlines where they let people run up 5 minutes before they close the gates."

Pros: "On time, ease of boarding w extra comfort seats, decent food , friendly service"."

Cons: "Food wasn't very good. But it was great to at least be offered something and the chips were awesome"

Cons: "More food Free headsets"
