Hawaiian Airlines consistently deliver top-quality service for economy class. The flights are more comfortable than the average, the crew is always very pleasant. I also appreciate that they make an effort to be eco-friendlier.

I wish they had bigger range of food option. The entertainment system is not that broad but I don't mind, I can entertain myself on a flight.

Really appreciated the 'laid-back' feel upon boarding and throughout, supported by the ambient slack-key guitar and native Hawaiian music. Also appreciated the engaging video presentation of basic safety and security information. "Free" Premium Entertainment was welcome, although I remained aware that this perk had been covered in my ticket price.

Considering that you're attempting to please a wide array of tastes, the mass-produced ready-made meals were pretty good, just not necessarily five-star restaurant made-to-order preferences. Some of us are pretty picky about our organic, fresh, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. In that Hawaiian Airlines seems to market itself as a very conscientious and customer-friendly airlines, any evolution in this direction would be welcome.

This no-frills airline gets you to and from Australia fairly cheaply, although when you start adding in all the extras, it may not be as cheap as first thought.

We attempted to add a meal online and were thwarted at every turn. It took a call and talking to a real person to resolve our issue. Plus, the in-flight service is so minimal; one person in our party tried to get a glass of water, and never received one. It seems a little parsimonious to charge for things like coffee and tea, especially on such a long flight between the US and Australia.

A nice crew memeber comped my beer and food.

With Jet Star you can not check in early or buy luggage before the flight when flying to the US and when I went to check my bag the total cost just to Oahu would cost $680 and not even get it to my final location. There was no option to buy my baggage limit early so was surprise de and forced to pay a crazy fee! As it was my last legal day to stay in Australia I had no choice...

So I didn’t like how the flight was canceled which caused my wife and I to stay an extra day in Sydney. We missed work and needed to take an extra vacation day. But I’m not really upset about that. What I’m REALLY upset about is that I had to reschedule the connecting flight to PDX which cost an additional $400. Is that reasonable to upset? Jetstar basically just put their hands up and said sorry lol

Flights with direct connections that other airlines dont offer. Seats are normal for a budget airline. Just bring your own food and things to do on the plane so you dont have to pay for extras. Friendly staff.

Variable policy on luggage. On the international flight they didn't get the weight of carry on luggage, if they did you would get a huge fine for paying for the extra weight. Better to just pay the cost ahead of time if you know you need to check luggage. Check in onto the plane is still a bit of a mess, always seems to be "every just get on" type of process.

Cheap flight and I felt baggage weight prices were reasonable separate. If you plan any baggage, I suggest considering buying the max up front. It's much cheaper that way and gives you flexibility since it's by weight and not bag count. Second best is anytime prior to airport. If you are overweight at the airport, you're doing it wrong. Bring your own food (I like Subway), water container, and entertainment for minimum discomfort. I would fly them again.

Boarding in Melbourne was a mess. They would not let passengers use the gate seating so most people stood in a stupid diagonal line and blocked the terminal walkway until boarding. Also, water from a flight attendant was not free. If you fly on a 787, please go to the back of the cabin and fill a cup/bottle there. Lastly, on flight food seemed meh and overpriced.

Change in Jetstarflight times messed up our other connections and we had to stay in Melbourne 2 extra days (at our own expense) to avoid the a 12 hour layover in Sydney on the "next available flight" that was offered instead. Seats were very uncomfortable (especially the headrest), too close together, and mine didn't recline. There was a lot of turbulance, unlike any I had ever been in before. The plane seemed to be shifting left and right instead of up and down. The temperature varied from too hot to too cold.

Great crew. During meal time they did a great job of having passengers adjust their seats so people could eat their meals in economy. If they didn't do this, it would be left to the passengers to ask the person in front of them to raise the seat or have to struggle to eat with that person's seat close to your face. Having the crew do that was great. That is another thing nice with this Hawaiiian aircraft. The seats actually have leg room in econonmy and they recline enough to rest. Don't change that! Also very nice is that you get a complementary wine or beer with your meal :-)

Entertainment options felt like 'nickel and diming'. It is a 5+ hour flight and all the seats have personal entertainment consoles. The only thing is you have to pay ~$7 to watch any of the movies. Be sure to have your book or device loaded up before flight. Each seat has a USB charging port :-), however it only has low amps - this means you can't charge things like a tablet :-(.

The crew were wonderful and the captain made a landing so perfect we didn't know we had landed!

The food was disappointing. The sandwich in particular was dry and tasteless. Other passengers mentioned this too.

Hawaiian Airlines consistently deliver top-quality service for economy class. The flights are more comfortable than the average, the crew is always very pleasant. I also appreciate that they make an effort to be eco-friendlier.

I wish they had bigger range of food option. The entertainment system is not that broad but I don't mind, I can entertain myself on a flight.

The staff were lovely and helpful. I was re-seated on my flight to the emergency exit row and they really take care of you there. Boarding was organized and timely. Entertainment was free internationally (had to pay domestically).

There were no vegetarian meals which was disappointing.

It was on time and orderly for boarding. The flight was fine.

The total lack of service to the passengers. Not even offered a drink of water without begging. On our flight to Melbourne the free entertainment was included but on this return flight everything except 2 "radio" channels required payment. After this round trip experience of being on a prison ship I would only fly Jetstar as a last resort. i would advise anyone who asks not to use jetstar for flights longer than a few hours because of the level of service they offer.

Staff were friendly and courteous.

Everything is an add-on with Jetstar. Not only do you have to pay for all checked bags (and it's more expensive if you pay at the airport instead of at time of booking) but any in-flight meals, blankets, pillows, movies, etc. are for purchase only, and they are not cheap! Couldn't they at least spring for a pillow when you have an overnight flight?! Rather disappointing.

The crew was polite.

Food: all food cost. Coffee/tea was four dollars. We pre-ordered our food and it was not available. They substituted our food with a large “cup of noodles“ which was terrible. Very surprised that all food cost. Too many unexpected fees. I’m uncomfortable plane! Way too crowded! Was charged and unexpected fee for a visa. Jetstar charged $50 per person! Flight was 9 1/2 hours late!

The plane is nice

The stewards are awful. The food is awful and expensive. They offer no fruit or veg. It's a terrible rip off. $4 for drop coffee. They don't provide water readily even on a 10 hour flight. They also charge $20/kilo if you go over weight on your luggage. I asked to call the office to pay over the phone. They grabbed $200 and said "too late". AWFUL AND NOT WORTH THE PRICE.

Plane was amazing but more room between rows would be so appreciated. We didn't pre-select our meals going to Australia and that was a huge mistake as not much remained to choose from. Won't do that again.

The crew brought me the wrong wine and appeared annoyed when I noted this. She never did return with the correct wine which I had already paid for--I had to ask another crew member.

Allowed us to sit with bassinet for our three month old baby. Flight was very smooth and staff were friendly. Make sure to order meal ahead of time as that's what we did and that way you get served first.

Meals are expensive for what you get.

Change in Jetstarflight times messed up our other connections and we had to stay in Melbourne 2 extra days (at our own expense) to avoid the a 12 hour layover in Sydney on the "next available flight" that was offered instead. Seats were very uncomfortable (especially the headrest), too close together, and mine didn't recline. There was a lot of turbulance, unlike any I had ever been in before. The plane seemed to be shifting left and right instead of up and down. The temperature varied from too hot to too cold.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
