Pros: "6 hour delay. Had to go back home. Would have liked a text notice berorebi spent 40 on shuttle transportation"

Pros: "Crew was great. They didn't get upset if you needed to stand up and stretch your legs. After weeks of complaining, Hawaiin finally offered vegetarian meals on international flight. In flight movies were good but a little outdated. Seats were surprisingly comfy. Free headphones eyemask and earplugs. In seat phone charging."
Cons: "Crying babies! argh......"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly. All movies were free. The staff was always so courteous. There was also adequate overhead storage."

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

Pros: "Snacks"
Cons: "The boarding was not organize."

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: "Small in flight meal. So convenient and yummy"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and helpful! They interacted with passengers and made everyone feel comfortable. They didn't make you feel dumb for asking questions like a lot of other airlines do. Will definitely fly with Hawaiin again!"
Cons: "Everything was great. No complaints"

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"

Cons: "Nothing!! They were top notch in my book!!!"

Pros: "Complimentary wine"
Cons: "No Individual TV"

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: "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"

Pros: "Helpful, friendly and informative; free breakfast;"
Cons: "Would be nice to get one free movie with long flight."

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: "choice of movies was very limited"

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"

Cons: "Didn't see seat assignments during check in. Hawaiian airline agent at the gate was super rude when I asked to get seat assignments for my family."

Pros: "Good schedule for snacks and lunch, staff really nice and efficient"

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

Cons: "A/C was not working correctly so we were all freezing."

Cons: "IFE not working properly"

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

Pros: "The crew was very professional but friendly."
Cons: "Any entertainment except the Hawaii channel involved renting an iPad for $15. 5 hours with no free inflight movie is too long."

Cons: "When I arrived at the airport check-in, the staff told me I need a visa to travel to New Zealand but I don't. I looked it up online for them and they agreed with me. Then they said they couldn't check me in because my first name is missing a space and asked if I spelled it wrong when I purchase the ticket, which is impossible because that's my name. It took them an hour an a half to figure out how to fix my name. Then they still couldn't check me in because it shows up a wrong country code when they scanned my passport. By the time they fixed their computer, my flight was already gone and I had to wait two more days for the next flight. I had to change my whole travel plan for this."

Cons: "It would have been nice to have a gluten free option for the meal."

Cons: "The other passengers"

Cons: "A few more audio selections would have been welcome."

Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Pros: "Nothing cause it didn't happen"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed so it didn't matter because the flught was delayed all the way til the next day."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "I hate the biscuits and water... really? On a 3hrs and 30 minutes flight. You guyz can do better"

Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding, the sign wasn’t updated after Zone 1. I was watching the board from a distance while on the phone, waiting for Zone 4 to come up. Fortunately, I heard them say “final boarding” over the intercom; otherwise I could have missed my flight."
