Pros: "The entertainment would not work on my laptop"
Cons: "help for getting the entertainment to work"

Pros: "Hawaii"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Flight was a little cold - but in Hawaii, not always a bad thing!"

Pros: "The crew did the best with the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "This flight was extremely disorganized and Hawaiian Airlines did a terrible job of updating the situation to its guests. We had no idea our plane was 4 hours delayed because their websites never displayed that (said everything was on time). We only found out when we went to board and they informed"

Pros: "Crew ok"

Pros: "Quick flight from Maui to the Big Island"
Cons: "A bit more padding to the seats"

Pros: "Hawaiian music."
Cons: "Incredibly slow baggage handling. Extremely tight seating"

Pros: "Food and drink were included, plane was very comfortable, and the service was friendly and professional... great experience."

Pros: "Airbus 330 best"
Cons: "Very good"

Cons: "They lost one piece of luggage. Waiting to see if they find it and its returned"

Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Small"

Pros: "Boarding, check in and crew were ok."
Cons: "I knew, based on my flight to Hawaii, that there was no included entertainment - a big disappointment. I also knew their food would be mediocre. However, I had called the airline before our trip to request vegetarian meals. We were told that was taken care of. On the flight, we were told that the only meals on that flight were very mediocre chicken sandwiches. Thus, we had no meals."

Cons: "We ended up upgrading because kayak doesn’t let you assign a seat and we were the last to get a seat on a very full flight. I will never use Kayak again."

Cons: "I really didn’t like the Hawaii check in process. I purchased the ticket through kayak , JAL to Honolulu.Of course I went to JAL counter to check in, but the service lady told me I have to go to Hawaiian airlines. Cause the flight was share by JAL through Hawaiian. What a mess!"

Cons: "Almost everything on the in flight entertainment system cost money and the screen was not very responsive."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The gate crew was outstanding in a very difficult situation. They were all very professional and helpful."
Cons: "Scheduled departure was eleven a.m. and actual departure was over seven hours later. We were each provided a $100 credit memo for future travel, but when we tried to reschedule our return trip to avoid LAX we were told the credit could only be used for new travel. Not happy about either the delay or the inability to use the $100 each credits. On top of that, we had to pay $400 rescheduling fees for the two tickets. That looks like a threefer to me. Pretty much sucks."

Cons: "Not clear what line to stand in signs would help Such as if you had a boarding pass you can just stand in the line that will give your baggage tag versus just standing in the general line"

Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "No leg room with Silver (raft or?) under seat."

Cons: "Overcrowded and too noisy"

Pros: "Staff were friendly"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "One hour delay boarding. One hour delay on the plane waiting for a light bulb change. 2 hours total before we were in the air. Not happy"

Pros: "Variety of drinks"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours Not serving food and snacks until 2.5 hours after boarding even though it was already 4.5 hours after lunchtime and everyone was starving Flight attendants not responding to the service requests at all"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours because of a maintenance issue The planee was a old one and normal sized carry ons wouldent fit"

Cons: "Not much value for first class"

Pros: "Overall I was happy. Would fly again."
Cons: "Advertisements annoyed me, especially after waking up. Turn them off plz."

Pros: "The service of the flight."
Cons: "Hawaiian air didn't provide much food"

Pros: "They got us to our destination safely. Which , of course is the most important thing. Got us there on time as well. Did not use in flight entertainment so cannot rate."
Cons: "First class seats are miserably uncomfortable, barely wider than a coach seat. Only difference I Can tell is that it has more padding. Foot rest is unbelievably unfunctional. Food was good but no wine or refill of the other beverages was offered with the meal. Flight crew as polite, but wooden and unengaging. Baggage claim at destination was efficient. I only fly with this airline , and in first class, because I have sooooo many miles.. if that weren't the case I would try someone else. Who knows , maybe they would not be any better."

Pros: "Same excellent service as previous flight."

Pros: "Moved up our flight."

Pros: "Boarding was not announced per zone. Zone 1 and 2 were boarded and then 3-5 all at once creating a huge line. Rated 1 on food and entertainment as short duration of flight didn't include either of those."

Pros: "crew was friendly and helpful and the seats in economy plus were more than adequate."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Left my carry on in the overhead with about $800 in Christmas presents and was able to retrieve in after clearing international customs. Nice, friendly, kind, helpful!"

Pros: "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."
Cons: "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."

Pros: "The attendant who picked me up in a wheelchair was very attentive and stayed with me until we got my bags."
Cons: "Having to pick up my bag in Honolulu in order to fly back to the mainland was a hassle, especially because I was being assisted in a wheelchair."

Pros: "The crew were wonderful and the captain made a landing so perfect we didn't know we had landed!"
Cons: "The food was disappointing. The sandwich in particular was dry and tasteless. Other passengers mentioned this too."

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

Pros: "Was a quick flight."
Cons: "Completely ruined my first day on vacation. I asked ahead about my bag being transferred between flights and it never was. It's been over 5 hours and still haven't gotten my luggage. Customers service was terrible and was up to me calling multiple times to get any response. Haven't been able to enjoy being outside because they have all my stuff and I am not a priority."

Pros: "The crew was good, not much as it was a red eye, but they were friendly and helpful"

Cons: "Sitting place too small"

Pros: "The crew was friendly n the food tastes surprisingly good, though the portion was small. The entertainment was good. and temperature inside the cabin was just right. Boating time was quick."
Cons: "Actually I was disturbed that CX offers a tabloid newspaper like Apple daily, especially at this sensitive stage when hk is going through such turmoil instigated and supported by Jimmy Lai’s group. It is offensive that such a biased newspaper is on offer, when there are other Chinese newspaper with a more neutral stand. Cathy has been viewed as a sympathiser of “yellow” rioters because of its involvement by management n crew. Now it just brings it more to the memory how CX might be what the leaked reports that many equipment has been compromised by CX crew onboard. Many of CX customers are from middle class, and it could be a big turn-off. It is unwise to patronise a tabloid newspaper when the owner has been named by China as the culprit of the recent troubles in hk. It’s like offering Al Jazeera news on united airlines entertainment........During the whole trip, I was captivated by these thoughts."

Cons: "It was my first time frying with Cathay Pacific the flight was okay, food wasn't that good. I don't want to compare with the other, my opinion should have more variety or snack between meals since 15 hours flight. Thank you for listening!"

Pros: "Airbus 350. Very good experience"
Cons: "Crew was jumpy. I expect them to be a little more gentle serving food."

Pros: "Beautiful, new plane. Amazing, elegant, classy, patient crew. Lot so of nice customer service touches."
Cons: "The food could have been a bit more exciting, but it was solid."

Cons: "Be on time. 3 hours delay"

Cons: "Extremely poor entertainment system - mostly old movies. No Bollywood movies"

Cons: "The flight attendant actually worked very hard. But I don’t think they have enough people working in the economy. I asked for a cup of coffee twice from 2 different flight attendant. Never got it"

Pros: "The crew were busy but very attentive"
Cons: "I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones."

Pros: "Will if you didnt know yet it was horrible. because of the reschedulling i miss my flight from paris to venice and all this flight is boon through you but i couldnt contact cheapflights because you dont handle it. So what do you think??"
Cons: "Well at least you could at least know what happened but instead i still got message from you that my flight was still on for 1235 really are you guys that really dumb??"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were friendly and premium economy seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Clean the toilets more regularly. One time, the floor was wet and not much paper left in the holders."

Cons: "Delays on both flights . Baggage in Dulles took well over 4o mins ... terrible"

Pros: "Good entertainment choices. Preferred check thru TSA. No one seating next to me."
Cons: "I don't think I will use Kayak again. You farmed out my booking to Voyama which spelled my name wrong. They refused to reissue my ticket with the correct spelling so I had to sweat out getting on board the airlines and now I have to sweat it out today because they again refused to reissue the ticket"

Pros: "The staff at Cathay Pacific were awesome."

Pros: "Food was amazing"

Cons: "Flight delayed as always"

Pros: "Friendly service on time flight"
Cons: "Boarding for premium economy had no special boarding. We were forced to stay in a long long line even though we paid almost double the fair with premium economy. All our other flights we got earlier boarding. There was no explanation given when I asked"

Pros: "On this trip being able to sleep huge a huge benefit"

Pros: "Business class passengers use Qantas lounge in Brisbane - fresh and well stocked. Boarding was hassle free and flat beds were very comfortable. Crew were helpful while being very busy."
Cons: "We had seats in the centre but ate at totally different times. Left aisle and right aisle worked a different schedule - annoying. Entertainment very high tech but odd selections."

Pros: "Crew provided excellent service, seats were comfortable and food and drinks were great."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient The flight left and arrived on time The plane was clean"
Cons: "The self service check in and baggage drop at Brisbane was not effective, requiring a lot of staff intervention and help"

Cons: "Didn’t like the seating arrangement. The check in counter was unwilling to accommodate us, even when we tried to check in four and half hours prior departure. We were unable to seat together for the long flight. On the plane, I noticed 2 family members travel together got aisle seat. I was really disappointed that Cathy Pacific allowed passengers pre-select seat in this method and has no authority or unwilling to accommodate others that flight together. Will not flight Cathy Pacific again."

Pros: "Not much to like particularly for this flight."
Cons: "The crew was a bit rough."

Cons: "My mother has health issues. She is diabetic, and asked for Juice. Air hostess told her they don't have the permission to serve anything for certain period of time. They did not give her Juice, and she was not feeling well. I'll not choose this airline again. Food was ok too"

Pros: "Brand new A350-900 airplane. Better movie selection. Nicer bathrooms."
Cons: "No more advanced seat selection except for an additional $180. No more serving wine and beer with dinner although I think its still available on request. A lot more screaming kids on the flight. Cathay is becoming more like the budget Chinese airlines. Sad."

Pros: "The crew's attention to passengers request in The Economy class"
Cons: "Nothing for what I paid"

Pros: "I normally fly Delta (Platinum member), but the price this time I thought was ridiculous. I bought the flight on Cathay for 45 percent less and actually I found the service and food quality was better. Both seats were about the same in comfort......So I would do it again"
Cons: "A Economy flight is an economy flight....what else can I say"

Pros: "I guess I can't expect much from what seems to be a low budget airline. The food was OK and the movie selection was excellent. I didn't have any issues with boarding or baggage check in. There was a mix of good and bad flight staff. Sadly, the staff in bad moods were servicing me."
Cons: "PThe bad mood in-flight staff and the uncomfortable seats. During boarding, I asked one of the staff if I can have a window seat because I have motion sickness and aisle seats make me feel ill. She looked at me flustered and said all seats are booked and that I'll be Ok with the aisle seat. On a different CP flight, a different staff was helping a couple switch with other passengers so they can sit next to each other. That would have been nice if they did that for me when I asked for a window seat."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food options"

Pros: "On time. The crew on"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. Zero. Bad. Crew is not as nice as Cathay Pacific. English not as good."

Pros: "Flight personnel go out of there way to smile and make you feel wanted on this flight and the previous flight enroute to Singapore from Hong Kong. Food was OK, too."

Cons: "Very long delay leaving Hong Kong"

Pros: "service was excellent"
Cons: "boarding took very long."

Pros: "The service was very nice and the ice cream with meals was a nice touch"
Cons: "Plane was a bit dirty - there were big dirt streaks on the ceiling above me, and I saw more on the ceiling on the other side of the plane as well."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Limited help in assisting passengers who missed their connection due to delay leaving Colombo and Hong Kong"

Pros: "Jenny (flight attendant in my section) was great. She was constantly smiling and was always positive. Her attitude made the flight more enjoyable."

Pros: "Overall excellent"
Cons: "Short gap between flight and long walk going to the next flight gate. Passing the security alone take time plus u have to walk then ride a train after that long walk again going to the gate."

Pros: "Good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Long wait to board then to take off...why can't we bring water on board for this Fifteen hour flight????"

Pros: "Food was better than average Seats were not too cramped."
Cons: "Seats are harder than I like for a long flight. Cathay screwed up my departure date and had to spend hundreds on top of normal change fee to get home on the day I was supposed to."

Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, something was dripping on me by the end of the flight, could have been condensation? The passenger behind me had his shoes off the entire flight and put his feet in the space beside me near the window. His feet smelt like vinegar and sweaty socks. The passenger beside me was overweight and he spilled into my seat partially. All of this did not make for a comfortable flight but thankfully it wasn't too long."

Pros: "The crew are very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Wish they would improve the food, the bathroom, and the cleanness of blanket and pillow please. It was such long flights from Boston to Hong Kong round trip to stuck in there. The quality and hygiene are important."

Pros: "Ice cream on the plane"
Cons: "my main course was not that tasty.."

Pros: "The crew was more than accommodating. The little amenities helped for such a long flight."
Cons: "16 hours in economy. There is no way to be comfortable on any plane."

Cons: "Those economy seats can only fit a child comfortably."

Pros: "again excellent all around,good leg room and elbow room, flight attendance were awesome !!"

Pros: "most of the crew was fine but..."
Cons: "one crazy crew member started banging on the restroom door and would not stop until I opened the door. ... simply because the pilot was telling us the weather in HK. So rude. Will definitely select another airline next time."

Pros: "The entertainment offering is excellent and the flight schedule into Sapporo is ideal."
Cons: "Staff are not as friendly and knowledgable as other airlines I have flown in Asia. Staff need to take control of the plane and have people prepare for take off a lot quicker than they do. I only experience this with Cathay and not other Asian airlines."
