Cons: "The food was ok"

Cons: "Super helpful because I was in a wheelchair"

Pros: "Was a short flight. Crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Part way through boarding they opened up a second line to scan tickets. So everyone that was in line behind us ran up up to the front of the new line. Extremely frustrating for all of us that now had to wait longer."

Cons: "If we could have been able to check-in 24 hrs in advance, it would have given us peace of mind. Since we were booked through AA, we couldn’t checkin on that flight either. Had to go to ticket counter. The signage is really poor at KOA airport, and it’s dirty. The food choices are really poor too."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good seat assignment"

Cons: "Terrible ground staff attitude - c;early aware about the monopoly of Hawaiian on the islands. Had a First Class ticket / Issues No mileage card entered Lifted my trolly and said 'to heavy' but refused to put it on a scale had to check it - go out in Honolulu - redo security etc ..for nothing. I actually had 12 kg and 24 Lbs are allowed / size was ok -"

Pros: "The use of an ipad along with the special built in stand for entertainment was innovative and effective. I found the food to be delicious."
Cons: "Though the seats were nice, they were not as nice as some of the other first or business class international flights I have taken."

Cons: "Racially profiled by security guard..Never coming here again."

Pros: "Standard inter island flight"
Cons: "Ridiculous that kayak itinerary included a 3 hour layover here in Kona. I had to wait for three not-full flights to HNL to leave before I could take mine. I couldn’t change because i had checked luggage, also annoying. No gate agents in boarding area so I had to go back through security."

Pros: "Being served a meal, snacks and a cocktail throughout the flight was great"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight. Having to download and app only viewable on phone or tablet is a pain. On top of that you have to pay for it"

Pros: "Fast boarding and fast disembarking."
Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "I was attended to without being bothered, fed and watered often."

Pros: "Clean well, maintained plane"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 1 1/2hrs! Oh well things do happen"

Pros: "Hawaiian reminds me what it was like flying in the good old days. Complimentary cocktails keeps it classy"
Cons: "Entertainment was rentable ipads so basically nonexistent. Hardly a deal breaker since we all have our own these days."

Pros: "A kind Hawaiian, noting my obvious age and lack of mobility, obtained a wheelchair and porter for me, who took me to the head of a very long TSA line, and took me to my gate. Later he returned and pushed me up the boarding ramp, and onto the plane. So much appreciated!"
Cons: "No drinks served."

Pros: "HA snacks at the perfect time"
Cons: "2 hr layover in honolulu..."

Pros: "We were Platinum so we could use the Premier Club room."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Friendly staff and personnel. The ride was smooth and good. I will definitely book Hawaiian airline in my next travel to Hawaii ..."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Everything was just perfect"

Pros: "Loved the free guava-oj, real props for safety features, and friendly flight attendants. Smooth flight on time and comfortable."

Cons: "Unacceptable flight sage mentioned. For a flight from KOA to LIH through HNL, other travelers Andy self were told there was no plane change and not to worry about the KOA to HNL flight landing AFTER the HNL to LIH fight started boarding. What a lie., requiring a dead run across the HNl terminal. Poor flying - this flight was my second and third '"two bounce"landings."

Pros: "We got the seats we wanted, and didn't pay extra for it"
Cons: "The fact that we can't get 2 seats next to each other even"

Pros: "Quick boarding Very supportive staff"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Horrible food..Cabin was freezing cold for five hours. Not a good experince.ö"

Pros: "Very helpful customer service rep."

Pros: "Leaving Hawaii? Never fun. The airline did their best to extend the experience."
Cons: "Finding the Gate at Honolulu was very very painful. Direction signs randomly sent you in all directions."

Cons: "Should be more free entertainment options."

Pros: "Perfect hosting, everything was on time!"

Pros: "Nice airline stewardesses. Good meal."
Cons: "Rough landing. Came down too hard. It was scary for me."

Cons: "There is no competiter for Hawaiian airline much between inner islands. Wish more big company join in routs and compete prices."

Cons: "Short delay waiting for one passenger"

Pros: "."
Cons: "Plane was too hot!! Ac nor working !"

Cons: "Stewardesses were grouchy except the one Oriental stewardess. Boarding was late. Reclining seats need to be eliminated!!! I paid $100 extra for additional 6 inches of legroom which was lost when person in front of me reclined. Kona Airport is nasty."

Pros: "I liked that they were on time (mostly) I liked the movie choices.. Crew were very nice....."
Cons: "Wasting money on their part for the silly little bags of pretzels......hardly worth the effort......could be a little more generous on a five hour flight.........."

Pros: "Plenty of drink passes."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Over heard gossiping about other travelers. At end of flight overhead announcement that our section of airplane using wrong bathrooms. It was rudely stated. Should have directed this instruction earlier in the flight. Very rude"

Cons: "The airport at Chicago always keeps me on the tarmac arriving OR departing. One of my least favorite airports, and almost always my last pick."

Pros: "No"

Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "Extremely cramped, surly flight attendants, and terrible food."

Cons: "Getting the crew to fly on original date of 12/31 instead of having to scramble to find hotel on other side of BI in Hilo on New Years eve. 24 hour delay and then giving the last row of seats with a screaming baby that another group kept walking back to our section to "grace" us with such melodies!"

Pros: "Overall the plane was in good shape with a nice infotainment screen and charging options."
Cons: "Add support for Bluetooth headsets on entertainment screens. For the love of all that is good in the world make those seats more comfortable! The isles were super narrow and difficult to exit quickly while carrying my carry-on"

Cons: "Space"

Pros: "The plane was nice and clean...had just been renovated"
Cons: "I can’t believe therebwere no flights from MIA to RDU from 11:30 to 4:30 :(. (Original flight was a 3.5 hour layover and that was bad emough)...and then it was changed to this flight:("

Cons: "They left me! I know I was a “runner” but they knew I was just already going through security and it’s only a 3 terminal airport! They even asked if there were any runners!"

Pros: "The staff on board were excellent, very professional and efficient. Despite the fact we left an hour late, we arrived nearly on time, so kudos to the pilots!"
Cons: "We were delayed but didn’t get any updates from AA staff about new boarding times or gates. The WiFi onboard did not work; we could could connect to it but kept getting “Network Not Available” messages."

Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "The flight crew was incredibly friendly"
Cons: "Old plane with uncomfortable seats. Also, for a 10 hour flight there was only 1 new release and it was a kids movie"

Pros: "The crew was great, the entertainment options were plentiful (if you bring your own earphones) and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I'm only 5'7" and normal build, and the seats were uncomfortably narrow with no room to partially straighten even my short legs. The life vest box under each seat also doesn't leave much room for the personal item you're supposed to stow under there."

Cons: "Ticket was never issued."

Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"

Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."

Cons: "Check in was a disaster with the computer system down. The gentleman that helped us was lovely but system issues kept us at check in a very long time and unfortunately that together with the crazy insanely long distance to our gate- then only to take a bus- we did not have time to pick up any food or make any stops which we counted on and had arrived 2.5 hours ahead of time to check in to allow for."

Pros: "Courteous, friendly staff"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and our party was stuck for 2 days without a returning flight."

Pros: "arrived on-time"
Cons: "We were booked in the very last row (unable to select a seat at the time of purchase) and had a rough time of changing the seats. The entertainment system was having problems and the whole entertainment system had to be re-booted about 90 minutes into the flight. It still didn't fix my seat's TV. Otherwise the trip was uneventful and we managed to get better seats on the return flight."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Very little entertainment. Would love some Wi-Fi."

Pros: "Boarded in a timely manner."

Pros: "Mechanical issues caused a 75 minute delay in taking off."
Cons: "Several delays"

Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to be given a boxed Snack on our overnight flight from Kona to Dallas."
Cons: "The ride was a little bumpy but not too bad. Can’t think of much we didn’t like."

Pros: "It was the night before Thanksgiving and I was really impressed at how smoothly everything went. The crew even had little travel passports for kids and flyer wings (the old school pins, not the stickers). We took off a little late but landed on time, and luggage was out immediately."

Cons: "Both to and from Hawaii, they ran out of food before they made it to us. It was bad enough that they had one cart for the entire plane. It took 90 minutes from the time they began serving until they got to us in row 34, but they ran out of food at row 31. The flight attendant just shrugged and said, "They do that to us all the time, sorry.""

Pros: "My flight was early"
Cons: "I had to pay an extra $5 because I did not have a card to check my luggage."

Pros: "We're hustling and hard working."
Cons: "Having to fly from Hawaii back to lax to fly to Australia."

Pros: "I wish I could remember the names of our flight attendants- but they were wonderful and really took time to get to know passengers! They were so friendly and went above and beyond in any of our requests. Loved them!"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have individual screens for such a long flight, but I wouldn't say that's a complaint. The flight was fine."

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "delays"

Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"

Pros: "Good service from crew members"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours"

Pros: "It was quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "On a 5 1/2 hour flight in first class it would have been nice to be offered something other than water to drink. the entertainment system didn't work at all in my seat. Also, after e a very trying day, I was anxious to get home, and the luggage didn't arrive until 90 minutes after touchdown. I guess that's what they mean by priority service- first on the plane and last off."

Pros: "Loved everything about flight. The flight attendants were professional and personable. One of best crews ever on American Airlines. Loved it all."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This was probably one of the best flights I've had. Attentive flight attendants and the seats were very comfortable. I would definitely fly again."

Pros: "Plane was good. Not jammed too tightly to be comfortably."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving. Baggage took a ridiculous amount of time to come down."

Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."

Pros: "Ticket agents at all airports were helpful and very considerate."
Cons: "We were not able to print our boarding passes the day before as expected per the website and purchase docs for the tickets, despite providing passport numbers (several times) and Global Entry registrations. Had to go to a ticket desk at first departure and third departure points to have them printed, with no explanations given. Also not allowed to choose our seats for the third leg. Food was barely edible. Paid extra for roomier seats on one leg, making it more comfortable, but were extremely tight on another leg which had many empty seats scattered throughout the cabin. Cabin attendants seemed more interested in pushing items that generated revenue than providing the ones that came with the ticket (which is never cheap to begin with)."

Pros: "We boarded the flight pretty quickly"
Cons: "This elderly woman took long to put her baggage above so someone that was sitting a row behind my seat decided to take all of the overhead bin space, he definitely did not have a carry on size luggage and I feel that would have never happened if tsa would have noticed his carry on was too big"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "entertainment did not work"

Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"

Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."

Cons: "Still waiting for my refund"

Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"

Pros: "Flight was early both ways. Pleasant experience"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "I made it safe to the mainland"
Cons: "We had some Change of plans and we're going to just get off in Phoenix and not take it straight to San Diego, we called American they said no big deal they would ticket our bags to Phoenix, got to the airport and the American Airlines gal stated in no way shape or form could they do that, I tried explaining the whole situation and her response always ended in 'and your bags will be in San Diego'. By the grace of God we were able to cram two checked bags worth of stuff into our carry ons which I still do not know how we did that, and were fine. On the flight we had a decently nice lady and a horrible male. When passing out drinks he seemed almost irritated that we had asked for water and rudely gave it to us which was room temperature. He totally skipped the lady in the row with us and got irritated when she asked for a water as well."

Pros: "free entertainment"
