Not a good way to represent your airline."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The seats were horrific. We flew economy because anything of an upgrade is ridiculously expensive. The seats were so tiny with NO leg room at all. I couldn't even fit my purse under the seat in front of me. I have had more space on Southwest flights. My husband, who is 6'1" could barely get his knees in front of him. This is insane for a 10 hr flight...worse on the way to Japan for a 13 hr flight. Also, not a whole lot of drink service. i was dying for water but it is very difficult to get out of the middle seat to find it. Would NOT book again on this airline."

Pros: "Extremely nice flight attendants, little toothbrushes in the bathroom, pretty decent meals. I would definitely flight with again."
Pros: "On the flight home they upgraded me to business class while apologizing my original economy seat was not available. Amazing. I had a rather unsettled stomach so when the food service came I wasn't hungry. I told the flight attendant, and she brought me some very bland easy to eat food without me even asking. She then checked on me constantly to see how I was feeling, and suggested sparkling water. When I deplaned, she checked one more time with me, if they could do anything. I was feeling much better, and give this airline my highest endorsement."
Cons: "returnning flight was not attended well,so much different from going flight. Going was excellent but returnning was not nice in all face."
Pros: "I felt well taken care of the whole time. When checking my bag, the attendant saw that I have a middle seat, and got me an exit row window, which allowed me to sleep. They accommodated a last-minute request for vegetarian meals. The flight felt like it took about half the time it actually did."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online without a JAL account."

Cons: "I always prefer this airlines."
Pros: "Service was especially good. Very professional."
Pros: "I loved flying JAL! I've flown several times between the US and Korea, and this was the best trip I've taken thus far! It was comfortable, the plane was awesome with high ceilings and it actually felt quite spacious. The entertainment was also perfect with tons of stuff to choose from. The best part, though, was their exemplary customer service! I needed to transport cold insulin, so at the gate counter I checked with the gate agent to see if they could refrigerate my insulin since I had a long travel time to my home destination. She promptly found out for me and talked to the flight attendants and told me they would take care of it when I got to my seat. She even checked to see if I needed a special meal or not after I finding out I was diabetic. They were so kind! They even let me refreeze my cold packs in their freezer before landing so I could keep my insulin cold after we landed. It was a huge help and they seemed genuinely concerned for my well being and what I needed. I will now fly JAL whenever I can!"
Pros: "The most polite staff that I have ever met. Very accommodating and concerned about our ride over the pacific ocean. I am a vegetarian and forgot to fill order my meal online. The staff was amazing in handling this, offering me everything else they had that wasn't meat. The economy seats were the most comfortable i can remember for an over night flight."
Cons: "The only critique that I would have is on the first flight, they took a while to get our dinner trays, but the second flight was prompt. This just be due to my seat being all the way up front."

Pros: "I can say all the crew was amazing"

Cons: "Better seats - really uncomfortable with a packed plane and wailing infants even when seated quite a few rows away."
Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"
Pros: "the boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."

When we went to go back with the same carry ons that we had been using our entire trip (with three different flights with them), They made us check in our hand luggage because it was over 7kg. When we went to talk to the person at the gate about it, he was very condescending and rude and not helpful at all. They were also not nice on the plane. Never flying again."

Once we landed in San Diego around 11pm, the pilot informed us that the entire plane’s luggage indeed had NOT been loaded in that hour. Customer service informed us that shipment of our luggagewas not available until 2 days later or we could return back to the San Diego airport at Midnight the next day. The amount of costs my family have to incur due to this inconvenience between clothes, hygiene items and medicine is immense. Such a disappointment!"

Total hell flight!!!"
Pros: "everything was in order"
Cons: "I cannot get a refund and will have to pay $200 if I want to rebook"
Pros: "The boarding process wasn’t bad at all. I just wish everything else was just as pleasant. The agent at the counter act like she’s unhappy with her job. The flight attendants was annoyed because I asked for water. Then they had those bright lights on mostly the whole flight."
Cons: "I booked my flight through a third party, which was fine. I chose my seat of 21J. After picking my seat I asked my husband what seat was he in. So he called Hawaiian Airlines and gave them my seat number and she told him once he got to the airport to have see if they sit him next to me. I get to the airport print my boarding pass I have no seat assignment. Asked the lady at the counter for seat assignment and we’re sitting in the very last seat. It was crammed uncomfortable because it was hot. Nothing to watch because they want to charge for everything. I’m hoping this is my last time flying with Hawaiian Airlines."
Pros: "Crew was really nice and accommodating, very comfortable seats but had to pay $80 for them."
Cons: "Food would have been better if they had nut-free options since I'm allergic. Other airlines give you nut free treats because of this reason. Entertainment could have been better - options for TV shows was limited - should have some HBO shows or newer sitcoms. Movie selection could have been better as well."
Pros: "We upgraded not quite first class but close enough well worth the money!"
Pros: "they served a meal and they have video displays on all chairs which is nice. not enough free video options"
Cons: "no Wife options! 5 1/2 hour flight that is just horrible!"
Pros: "Great that Hawaiian serves a meal and complimentary glass of wine. On-board service always very good."
Cons: "Airline did not automatically assign my TSA pre-check, which it has on file and is supposed to do. Even after I entered it when I checked in, the system did not take it and did not warn me it hadn’t. Could not select seat when purchased ticket. Plane had no power outlet for laptop. Movies cost a fee, as did blanket."
Pros: "Staff was extra friendly!!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and we didn't have a way to control the air blowing down on us."
Cons: "I wish they offered more food options"
Pros: "Hawaiian airlines is the only airline offering complementary meals on flights to the mainland."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Love the wide body place, the meals, the service, and the people."
Cons: "The plane broke and we had a 2 hour delay and then took a new plane, and that plane had no onboard entertainment or wifi."
Cons: "Unfortunately we had a problem with the first plane and waited on board for an hour before they let us know we would have to get off. Waited another hour to board the next plane. I do understand that issues arise, but it was still a bummer."
Pros: "Free food and I had a lot of leg room. The crew was nice too"
Cons: "To pay for each movie i wanted to watch and for a blanket. I thought they were all complementary."
Pros: "We loved the extra legroom, on board entertainment, hot food, complimentary wine with meal, friendliness of flight crew and the peaceful and soothing Hawaiin music while boarding. The flight itself was smooth with an on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "I would not change a thing. I wish other American carriers were more like Hawaiin airlines! Such a pleasant experience!"
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised to be offered complimentary wine and also a complimentary dinner. The touch-screen options were great--nice videos and music with music videos (could hear if you had headphones), plus my favorite: a flight tracker."
Cons: "The middle aisle section of our plane was quite cold and blankets were expensive $10. Next time I will bring one. I was cold in my jeans and light sweater. The touch-screens at each seat were frustratingly and unpredictably unresponsive. The check-in process in Honolulu Airport for Hawaiian Airlines was hands-down the most time-consuming, confusing, and crowded one I have ever been through. Kiosk screen had too much info at once so even savvy kiosk users were very slow to go through process. We had already checked in online 24 hrs prior but that didnt save us any time as we had to stand in the kiosk lines with everyone else to print our bag tags then another line to just drop our bags. Entering this check-in area was a shock to the system as it looked like a mass of people. We were directed to a vague direction where our line should be, then after standing in that line for 10 minutes we were told by a fellow customer that we had to go to a different line amd basically start over. Then came the security check line. We made it to the front looking the whole time for a designated spot to dump our kids' water bottles out (our San Diego airport has a liquid dumping spot with a sign), to no avail. Finally at the front of the line the TSA agent is about to check our boarding pass and my husband inquires about where to dump the water bottles. The agent and front of the line line is situated less than 10 feet from the wall where a drinking fountain is, but of course in our way there is a plastic half-wall barrier (the one to guide the line toward her). She tells us we have to dump it there in the drinking fountains. However the kicker is we have to get out of line to do it--can't be let out and come back to her. Have to wait in the security check line again. No, I'm not kidding. So I decide to take all water bottles and my husband takes the kids on through the security check. When I come back to get back in the security check line the person working at the entrance of that line actually was asking every single person whether they had water--guess she forgot to ask us the first time we went through... bummer. We had arrived at the airport more than 3 hours before our Tuesday 2pm flight. With stopping to eat lunch in the terminal and going through these multiple lines, by the time we got to our gate, boarding had already begun. Boarding from gate to plane went fine."

Pros: "Hawaiian airlines is the best airline!"
Pros: "I don't have the privilege to fly all the time but this year I was blessed to fly twice. First with another airlines then with Hawaiian.

They were available when we needed them Not only available but willing. The laboratory was nice and clean. The aircraft was comfortable. The food was good. I appreciate the complimentary drinks and snacks. My child enjoyed the variety of movie selections. Our whole experience was wonderful.

Cons: "It would be nice if the meal menus had allergy information printed on them. The plane was equipped with an older entertainment center, and some of the control buttons were a little unreliable. These are minor complaints, however."

Cons: "The missed flight to SFO was replaced by another flight to LAX next day and then from LAX to SFO via United as domestic flight. This is horrible experience since we had to check out all luggages, go through custom and then check in the bags again with all weighing problems. The worse is that to go from International terminal to United domestic counter, we had to pull the luggages along the curb from one end of the airport to the other side of it. We will never take this option again"
Cons: "The service is kinda slow to respond"
Pros: "Crew were super friendly. Food was pretty good for airline food."
