Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Cons: "The attendants were very pleasant and efficient. I will certainly prefer to fly JAL, especially if you could offer the lower rates. On the down side, it was very difficult to contact their customer service line. However their online help desk was very responsive."
Pros: "Inspire of bad weather, the pilot executed a perfect landing !"
Pros: "good flight"

Cons: "The only thing I didn't like Was leaving the plane."
Pros: "Excellent service overall"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."
Cons: "This is a kayak feedback - I thought I bought a cathay/jal flight. Well I was out of luck when I tried to fix situation. Broker in between introduce by website made it impossible to rebook flight in practice. Those website are very practical to look for flights but unless they give you the company direct you are better off switching to company site and book it there. Broker not equipped to be of any help."

Pros: "The schedule was convenient to get to Tokyo quickly Check in was fast"
Cons: "The food was more "modest" than I'm used to, but my expectations aren't high"

Pros: "full service"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Japan Airlines is far more spacious than all domestic airlines. The food and beverage options were comparable to most airlines like Delta, United, etc, but presentation was better so they get style points. Their wifi connectivity was far better than Gogo's services, which is the provider for most domestic airlines. The real improvement compared to most my travel was the level of service. The staff was incredibly attentive."
Cons: "Still waiting for the day wifi at 30k feet is comparable in speed to at least a public cafe. Also, when will one of these airlines start providing balanced meal options that are actually palatable. JAL's food was okay, but heavy on starches and fats with low quality protein or vegetables to accompany them."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive cabin crew. They were all very helpful and came by repeatedly to ask if we need anything throughout the flight."
Cons: "Nothing really not to like."
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"

Pros: "Great amount of legroom in the seats we were lucky enough to be granted. Entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Frantic service from crew. They seemed anxious and rushed at all times. Food was also very average."

Cons: "SMALL SPACE FOR FEET IN BUS. CLASS AND HEAD REST NOT THE MOST COMFORTABLE"
Pros: "The food was ok. It didn't set my heart on fire, but I did finish it."
Cons: "The plug to the ear buds was loose to the entertainment unit, and so most of the time I couldn't hear anything! When I could the sound was dreadful."
Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."
Pros: "Excellent service by flight crew. Good selection for entertainment. Flight was enjoyable."
Pros: "Attention to customer service and needs"
Cons: "Couldn't use my own headphones to watch movies"
Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Pros: "It was safe, great staff and service! Entertainment was great and lots of options in food and beverage!"
Pros: "Seating space was very good. Meals terrific"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled during peak season with little notice time Lack of service Lack of compensation"
Pros: "Leg room in economy is good, even for tall people. Food was actually quite good."
Cons: "Two of our family's seats would not recline, although they were not near an exit row."
Pros: "Lots of movie and game options"
Cons: "Staff was slow to tend to my needs (i.e. Water), continually bumped into my shoulder or leg. Would not accommodate moving my seat next to my wife's because a couple wanted to have an entire row to themselves. Very frustrating"
Cons: "Same price as Singapore airlines but it's a budget flight - silk air"
Pros: "every thing was ex best flight I have ever went on. I would rec your services to anyone."
Pros: "Skycouch in Economy was wonderful. Although small, it was sufficient in order to get comfortable and get several hours of sleep on a long flight. Entertainment system was outstanding, with excellent selections of movies, TV, TED talks & music. Plus, ordered water, beverages and snacks at any time via the screen and it was delivered to my seat. We had a seat change request at the gate which was resolved by the gate agent who was amazing."
Cons: "Check in and bag drop area needed personnel to assist and answer questions. It was not clear what to do and we stood in along line that we could have avoided if there had been a customer service rep to guide us."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Ordered a vegan meal for flight companion pre-flight; we *both* received a vegan meal (it seems like people with incompatible diets cannot book their flights together). Flight seemed to have run out meals since a random third person in my row requested an extra meal and was told they were out. Flight etiquette of other passengers would have been nice; for example, it was also fairly unsafe for a father and child to keep walking up and down the aisles, let alone the bumping into people they kept doing."
Pros: "GREAT CREW, THEY DID THE BEST THEY COULD. VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL."
Cons: "Ground personnel could have been way more helpful. We came back from Europe and needed to take a domestic flight to Palmerston North.We had a lot of handluggage that was allowed in our international flight, we had purchased an extra suitcase ticket to make sure it wouldn't be a problem. The lady that helped us was not willing to include any more items than 1 small suitcase that weighed only 11 kg, but we had paid for 23 kg. When we wanted to board the airplane we were told we could only take 7 kg each. Which caused problems and stress that we couldn't use after a 40-hour flight from Europe. We discussed this with the lady at the counter which wasn't really helpful to start with, but eventually, she let us board the plane anyway after we had to explain our situation a few times, and after she asked us to weigh our extra items, which of course we're more than 7 kg. We were pleased that at least she let us board our plane in the end. Hopefully next time we won't encounter the same problems."
Pros: "I had to cancel the flight because the have customer service very poor in air New Zealand vancouver BC agents the could not solve a simple problem in esta that happened to me similarly in Australia with the same problem of esta if they are not efficient they should be replaced there many good candidate for airlines in Vancouver BC"
Cons: "Improve customer services"
Pros: "The crew was polite, efficient and prompt"
Cons: "The food quality needs improvement!"
Pros: "Entertainment options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. With decent leg room and nice seats. The in flight entertainment was excellent. As was the crews efficient and professional service. Top star"
Pros: "The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible."
Pros: "The plane, seat, food, amenities, staff, etc were all world class"
Cons: "LAX immigration is a nightmare but not NZ fault."
Pros: "We liked that we got to watch some entertainment for an economy seat."
Cons: "The check in process was a disaster- and none of the crew knew what they were doing. They were very unhelpful and on topof that kayak did not let us know there would be a $160 fee if we did not order a seat with a baggage. It was not clear on the third party site. It was a very costly for us, a couple who is on a budget. i book From kayak all the time, and know exactly when I am booking an economy ticket vs a more upgrade. We had to pay an unexpected $320 on the day of flight. It was ridiculous and while we were boarding the flight attendants held us up again bc we had not paid the fee. But we tried to pay the fee at the front desk the first time and then we paid it at the gate and then boarded last on the plane. It was awful. The staff did not know anything and we were not treated great. Super unprofessional and disappointed at Kayak for not laying out all the costs ahead of me."
Pros: "Fast transit connections in Auckland, Good times for departure/arrival"
Cons: "When I booked I chose seats, then the aircraft changed and I ended up with the family split. It would have been nice if they had at least sent an email giving me a chance to select new seats"
Pros: "The gate agents and the gate supervisors were rude and condescending My reservation was changed mid air and even though I made it to the gate 18 to Houston on time and boarding was still in progress I was not allowed to board. I was informed a plane was not a bus that I could hop on anytime I liked. When I protested that I had a confirmed reservation I was calmly told. “We canceled it because we didn’t expect you to make it.”"
Cons: "I missed my Thanksgiving Holiday because some powers that be decided I would not be able to make a connection So instead of waiting to we if I missed it and rebook then, like a normal airline, they preemptively cancelled and denied boarding."
Pros: "The crew was super courteous and nice."
Cons: "Nice newer aircraft and the crew goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable."
Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"
Cons: "We booked our tickets and chose our seats and nowhere did it warn or tell us that we were located in a ‘safety row’ where the arm rest would not fold up. So we could not stretch out during our 12 hr flight. This was the most uncomfortable experience I have ever had on the multiple trips I have done between USA and Australia or New Zealand. The seat ordering from the kitchen was rarely available, even after the flight attendants had finished food service and pick up. The flight attendants weren’t very friendly."
Pros: "Good selection of movies I thought."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 50 mins. Missed my connecting flight from Auckland, so had to spend 3 hours at the airport. A voucher for internet access would’ve been nice."
Cons: "Narrow isles ment I kept getting bumped the entire flight."
Pros: "Very professional staff"
Cons: "I don’t have an option of purchasing a meal during check in or at any moment during my booking."
Pros: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"
Pros: "After 3 flights on Air NZ we were very impressed by their service. Comfortable seats, great inflight entertainment system, decent food and very friendly cabin staff."
Cons: "We had 2 middle seats, which was less comfortable, but it was my fault for not choosing seats earlier."
Pros: "Although I'd like to see the seats upgraded to ones adjustable to lie flat seats without getting up and several steps, the crew on the Air New Zealand flights make the difference. What a PLEASANT experience. Great passenger service boarding to landing."
Cons: "Once made, the lie flat seats are extremely comfortable. However, it's a bit of a hassle to get the bed made. Also the seats don't offer as much privacy as seats on other carriers (AA, UA, LH etc). If they changed the seats, the airline can compete with any other, as the crews are superb."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Allowed us to change seats within our section for more comfort. Good food. Loves the USB outlet at our seats."
Cons: "Seats near bathroom were very noisy"
Pros: "Overall service, food quality vs US airlines, selection and ease of use of entertainment system."
Cons: "I purchased a $50 select economy upgrade which should have included priority boarding but it did not. That’s on the airline though, not Kayak. The airline also did not reply to an enquirer submitted weeks before the flight. Seat leg space was restricted more than average due to large black blocks in addition to the metal seat frames. Maybe that’s due to the enhanced entertainment and power outlets so can’t say it’s a complete negative."
Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."
Pros: "The customer service is stellar, the planes comfortable. I will fly with them again in the future."
Pros: "Friendly, polite helpful"
Pros: "The crew were outstanding as usual . This flight was amazing due to over the top excellence in service especially to me as an older passenger . Probably one of the best flights ever ."
Cons: "Leaving New Zealand again"
Pros: "I had always had a pleasant time with this airline but this 2nd longer flight wasn't it's best! I still have good opinions about this airline and plan on using it in the future."
Cons: "My neighbor in a 4 seat section kept elbowing me. Seats seemed to be too close to each other and for people who aren't average weight it is hard for them to stay within their given space. Eating meals was difficult because some people use their elbows all over the place."
Pros: "The staff were very kind. The amendies (pillow, blanket and headphones) were great. The airplane food and wine selection were nice."
Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."
Pros: "Excellent service, seats, big screen, etc ✅"
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "Good lleg room in the aircraft. Friendly service."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."
Pros: "Quick, efficient service"
Pros: "Significantly more leg room than other competitors! Even with the person's chair reclined in front of me, I was still able to be comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was as good as can be (given that it is airline food), the choices for entertainment were great. Lots of overhead storage!"
Cons: "Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke."
Pros: "Flight was great, happy to be back home! Movies were awesome to watch on board, good selection!"
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "For how much a ticket cost, they really take advantage of you. 7.5 kilo max carry on... what a joke. My bag ways that without anything packed. It's time for some competition to right their ship."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful. One of our travelers got sick on the plane and, unfortunately, made a mess in one of the toilets. Without batting an eye, the crew took on the thankless task of cleanup. We noticed that the bulkheads had fixtures embedded in them to allow a small basinet to be attached to the bulkhead. One couple used it for their infant and it seemed to be a lifesaver. I don't know of any other airline that offers this."
Cons: "Our seats were more narrow than normal. Almost to the point of discomfort. We did fly on Air New Zealand from Auckland to Christchurch and the seats on that flight were what I would consider a "normal" width. Meals were served in a timely way but the food was just okay - nothing outstanding. But, we did fly coach/economy."
Pros: "United Code share. Very poor boarding. Service is poor, food is poor. But compared to some US Airlines they are probably good."
Cons: "Well for every US airline. Improve everything."
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Pros: "The entertainment was great, crew is always very friedly and great with kids. They are always on time and very helpul. I always look for Air Newzealand before I fly!"
Pros: "Fabulous! Again, the Flight crew are so friendly. helpful and always smiling. The overnight flight went very fast. The dinners and hot breakfast served were beautiful. Complimentary wine with dinner was lovely."
Pros: "I was in Premium Economy and everything was wonderful! The food the entertainment system and extra legroom (with a leg rest!) was fantastic! I slept so well!"
Pros: "I liked the video console. Loved the wine. Everything was great."
Cons: "Wish all seats in economy could have a footrest. Sleeping on a long flight is very uncomfortable without one."
Pros: "I really like Air Newzealand!"
Better option on food selection
I love Qatar Airways.Thanks to all the people who serve the airline
Everything was excellence and good
Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."
Pros: "Crew did a great job keeping the long 11hour flight manageable!"
Pros: "I like the service in the flight"
Cons: "Connection to other airlines and at different terminals with taking luggage around was horrible with all flights cancellations"
Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."
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: "Excellent food choices, multiple meals, very fast boarding process, comfortable seats that recline much more than US domestic flights"
Cons: "My movie was a bit dicey, but thankfully I wanted to sleep anyway"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Bassinet seats could be bigger for comfort with an infant."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Crew were fine."
Cons: "Food was terrible."
Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great! It if was free that would be perfect!"
Cons: "All the food was terrible breakfast lunch and dinner I was sick from eating chicken I started vomiting as soon as I was on my way home , please serve better food , food tastes like factory junk , please offer cold drink and cold water or least ask if you would like ice, all the cups for the beverages was small, seating was very uncomfortable not enough room especially if you sitting next to a large person they kept elbow me and taking up my seating , I was so miserable on a 16 hours flight on Qatar to LAX , very bad experience , please do better, also staff was not friendly"
Pros: "The entertainment was excellent, the seats very confortable"
Cons: "Some of the crew members where “to green”, perhaps a bit more of experience is needed."
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Pros: "Everything ,good service ,friendly crew affordable rates"
Pros: "Houston check in counters need to be added."
Cons: "Doha airport indian staff is rude to many passengers during their hand carry check. Too little space there. No organization."
Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."
Cons: "Qatar counter check asked how long I will be staying in Ho Chi Minh, even though my visa expired in 2022! Surprise and they are aware of my ticket with a return in Thi September. Then I was asked for how long I will stay is not of Qatar concern. Too much of concern!"
Pros: "Food was good and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Had to wait 3 hrs because of a system malfunction. And had a screaming toddler behind me the entire 13 hr ride. The headrest on the seats are very uncomfortable."
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: "Flight crew was very helpful. I didn't have any special requests, but I noticed them being extremely helpful to other passengers. Much better than US based airlines, as most others are."
Cons: "Extra security going to USA is a nuisance. Food was ok, not as good as previous trips. Lamb was only selection left when they got to my seat. Not my favorite also very fatty."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"
Pros: "Excellent flight , seats, food"
Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"
Cons: "Should use 380 craft"
Pros: "I have long stay in the DOha airport, 22 hours, and during this there is no accomodation is provided by Qatar airway"
Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."

Pros: "Very attentive flight attendants-very courteous and responsive to all of the folks sitting in the "cheap seats"."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about in the entire process from ticketing through flight and disembarkment"
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Cons: "I had cancelled my flight with qatar airways due to the current political problems. My ticket was booked through the agent airfare.com. They have handled the issue terribly. To start with. They said that they have to charge me a $615 penalty on top of the $750 i had payed for the ticket for cancellation. They mentioned that ill be refunded my $750 from qatar as they got a waiver for me. I received $250 from qatar airways and nothing yet. Airfare's customer service staff is highly uncooperative and v rude"
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."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."
Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."
Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous overall service excellent"
Cons: "Seating... our seating was changed so we did not sit how we would like"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class for the first time in my life. The food was good, and plentiful, in both classes. The stewards were accessible and friendly, the seats were comfortable. The movie selection was good"
Cons: "I was trapped in the window seat, because my neighbors were sleeping. Not Qatar's fault"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "it makes my trip wonderful. Thanks quatar airlines and kayak"
Pros: "I was promised Wifi on all flights when I called customer service and I was frustrated I only had it on 2 out of the 4 flights ... And the connection was bad. I needed to work and planned on it after I heard the wifi was available for purchase."
Cons: "Did not like there was no wifi when I was told there was. The food was good and the service as well... It was comfortable !"
I miss my flight, they said right gate but different airline that was print on my boarding pass. I didn't get my refund back very poor customer service at the terminal
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Flight on time."
Pros: "Crew fine. No in cabin movies and super late prompts to download ap."
Cons: "More gluten free options rather than chips and meat sticks"
Pros: "On time! Nice crew."
Cons: "More entertainment options for a 10hr flight. Food was not the best, no variety."
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Free food and mixed drink. You don’t seem to get that anymore."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Comfort on a plane is always not so great."
Pros: "The plane back to Portland wasn’t as hot as it was flying there."
Cons: "The plane was delayed and then after the delay we sat on the plane for over an hour before take off. No free movies anymore which is crazy to pay 5.99 per movie.i won’t fly Hawaiian airlines again"
Pros: "The staff on the flight was great."
Cons: "Screaming babies everywhere."
Cons: "30 min after takeoff from HNL the flight was turned around and landed back at HNL. We deplaned and sat in the waiting area for the next 5 hours and 50 min until another plane was available for us."
Pros: "Plane seemed new, was clean, and adequate space. Staff was good. Overall a satisfactory flight experience"
Cons: "The warm pork sandwich was pretty bad. Soggy and lacking flavor. Would have much preferred a cold turkey sandwich. Would also be nice to be able to pay a flat fee for watching movies on the going and returning flights rather than paying between $4 and $8 per movie. Was seated next to small children which is not the airlines fault but still doesn't make for the most peaceful flying experience."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Crew was nice and served drinks several time instead of just once."
Cons: "The flight delayed taking off by half an hour and cut my transfer to connecting flight to SF as much. I had only an hour to get through custom and claim luggage to checkin again. But connecting flight terminal was a different one. Hawaiian should provide an agent to direct us to get to the gate."
Pros: "Comfortable plane and good service. Everything was on time and easy. Staff were kind and friendly to everyone."
Cons: "Could have been slightly better food but appreciated the free drink! No in-flight movies. Please ask people to use headphones on plane.... free blankets for all? I get cold on airplanes and blanket was $10"
Pros: "The Service, crew and flight were all good, very good landing."
Cons: "The flat bed seating was uncomfortable, I was squashed up and happy to get out of the seat on arrival. I was seated in 1C"
Pros: "I liked getting off the plane."
Pros: "Seats were compfortable"
Cons: "Wouldn't assign a seat until arrived. Machine wouldn't accept barcode on phone. Lady at counter was rude."
Cons: "Same information as the above, Tried to change flight, and rebook, but could not get anyone to answer the phone. So had to book with another airline, so we can get home. So we paid twice to return home a day late. We would really like a credit or reimbursement for our return flight, since a natural disaster (road closed to airport) and no way to contact the airlines were the cause of our no show, which was this flight!"
Pros: "Food, service, and on time."
Cons: "The temperature is too cold inside the carbine"
Pros: "As I indicated it was OK!"
Pros: "A mechanical issue meant our late night Sydney to Honolulu flight was cancelled. As a consequence, we were on the runway from 9:30 until 11:30 while they tried to fix the problem. Then we were at the airport until 1:00 am getting a hotel voucher and re-ticketed. Unfortunately, instead of having a day in Honolulu to deal with jet lag before going on to San Diego, we lost our Hilton reservation in Waikiki. We ended up getting a direct flight to LAX and on to San Diego. I will say the crew attempted to work with us. Daniel made an executive decision and got us on United. But no stopover in Hawaii."
Cons: "The 6 hour flight was a trial due to the uncomfortable seats. They are hard, flat and slippery. Next time I might consider dragging along a non-skid pad to sit on."
Pros: "I flew first class on this trip so it was an awesome experience, especially with their seats that allow you to lay down."
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat, I don't have the slightest idea what my money went to. The my car seat and stroller the were checked were both visibly damaged and had pieces missing. Now I have to purchase a new car seat because my sons is no longer safe for him to ride in."
Pros: "The flight staff was amazing! It is really hard to fly 15 hours in one day but each flight was filled with amazing flight attendants and pilots!"
Pros: "Hawaiian provides clean planes and great, friendly service."
Pros: "The crew does a fine job, and the airplane is comparably clean and comfortable. I fly a fair amount however and I am always disappointed to learn what is NOT included in my fare. The direct connection between where I was an where I wanted to be made the difference in this case."
Cons: "I had a very hard time locating the correct ticketing counter. In fact, due to a lack of signs (Honolulu airport) I was in line for Australia before a person came and asked. It was poorly organized. I was disappointed to pay for my only bag (which was carry-on size and only needed to be checked due to a liquid I was bringing home). I was disappointed to learn that the only in-flight entertainment I had available without paying was short documentary films about Hawaiian Airlines or their staff's travels. On a five hour flight it is particularly frustrating to have so little available. My Delta flight by contrast offered multiple movie titles. In fact, I could have gotten another flight for less $ with more entertainment (but going to a different city)."
Pros: "Wonderful crew and they actually feed you and give you a complimentary glass of wine. It's nice to see airlines coming back to taking care of their passengers. The captain came on the speaker to let the passenger with a dog know he personally checked on their dog and reassure them all was well."
Cons: "The movies are free on the window sides of coach but not in the middle yet both have the Same plane ticket fare. It seems unfair and unnecessary for an almost 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable the staff was rude and of zero help. the entire experience affirmed our decision to never use hawaiian airlines again."
Cons: "No vegetarian food option. Asked for coffee, was given tea."
Pros: "Service was fine."
Cons: "Delay at Honolulu because they had tto repair something on the brakes."
Pros: "Comfortable, frequent drink service, actually served a meal."
Cons: "I wish they had internet available; we came in 40 minutes early and being able to let my pick-up know would have been invaluable."
Pros: "Airbus is more comfortable than Boeing in economy class; bit of extra foot room quite nice on long flight. Pleasant crew! Will look to fly again. Mahalo"
Pros: "The courteous flight attendance."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but okay. At least they offered a meal which is nice on such a long flight."
Pros: "SMS update about changing departure time allowing for adjustment of pre departure"
Cons: ">3h delay due to crew rest need"
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "The times during the flight that I wasn't sleeping."
Pros: "My experience boarding was a bit of a disaster as the boards at the airport stated an incorrect gate and reported an hour delay which was not correct. I ended up having to sprint to make the flight in a different wing an hour before I thought it was leaving. I barely made it onboard. I think this is an issue with the airport, not the airline but this is the only forum I have to state this. My experience with the crew was amazing. Very welcoming and hospitable. My experience with the airport staff was the opposite. Very unhelpful and cold. The flight went fairly smoothly, but, as is the case with most American airlines these days, the seats are uncomfortable and cramped. The inflight meal was good (for airline food) and very much appreciated on the 6 hour flight. Overall, this was a pretty typical American flying experience. Unfortunately, I was returning from flying with Asian and Australian airlines which were much more comfortable and customer-focused, so my experience on Hawaiian seemed subpar."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, planes were new."
Cons: "Expensive entertainment on international flights No vegetarian or healthy food options, despite 20hours of flight time each way (NYC to Sydney via Honolulu) Absolute mayhem checking-in in Sydney and Honolulu. Hawaii airport is terrible for transfers."
Pros: "Meal service offered in coach. Crew was very professional."
Cons: "Would prefer to have a United States carrier fly US planes (Boeing) not Airbus. One very positive step all airlines should take is to prevent the reclining of seat backs in coach. The space between rows is already very tight and becomes really uncomfortable when the seat in front of you is reclined."
Pros: "It could have been the airport (Honolulu) or HA, but either way it was sheer chaos transferring from the inbound Auckland flight to the flight to Portland. We had to sit on the plane until customs was "ready for another group" and then there were at least 5 check points! We even had to go through security again and give up our newly purchased water bottles. We had to pick up our luggage and transport it to another drop point and no one there had a clue how the luggage was being organized - no surprise then that we arrived in Portland with 4/6 pieces of luggage. We were told it would be delivered to us - 2 days later still waiting. NOT impressed!"
Cons: "Purchased onboard entertainment option. Screen went blank after only half the flight. Flight attendant said she would reboot but did not work until 5 minutes before landing"
Pros: "Food was good! Hawaiian music and warm greetings got us in the vacation mood as soon as we boarded."
Cons: "Free movies on a 6 hour cross ocean flight would have been much appreciated."
Pros: "As above ..."
Cons: "Movie selection seemed kind of thin. My 'interactive' touch-screen video monitor was very user-unfriendly, requiring me to push quite hard and numerous times in order to make any selection. Finally got there but only after much repeated effort. Left a note on the monitor advising crew and/or maintenance of this malady, hoping they would provide a fix prior to further use. (Seat 20 G, Flight HA 26, on Sat. Sept. 24th)"
Pros: "International cost nothing but Domestic cost money. No cash allowed. What business model is that?"
Pros: "I like the free meals, beverages and movies. Makes the flight much easier."
Pros: "Staff were thoughtful and attentive at all times. Especially with the number of small children and young families on board I found the crew to be extremely accomodating to the young families and others surrounding gusts needs"
Cons: "Couldn't find a negative. A great and pleasant experience"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, I had a whole row to myself. Food was good and service was superb"
Pros: "You're one of the best airlines!"
Cons: "There were no blankets and it was cold. There were balances on my other flights but not this one."
