Airline reviews

Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."

Pros: "Everything was amazing! Crew was helpful, thoughtful and kind."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great. Strongly recommend."

Cons: "Nothing really other then maybe a better selection of movies but I am not picky Great flight"

Pros: "Simple check in and boarding, right on time."

Cons: "Business class seats not very long if you are tall. Western meal option is not really very western. Crew is a little too efficient- got woken up 90 minutes before landing to clear the mattresses. Lots of announcements- a bit too much. On time, and quick to respond to requests. Sake was good as was the ramen."

Pros: "The crew was polite, responsive and friendly. The food was very good and served hot. For a flight to Japan, I thought $1,000 round trip direct from Boston was an excellent price considering you got 2 complete meals and additional snacks. Much more than I expected. Would fly Japan Airlines again."

We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect.

Pros: "I enjoyed everything! My first flight was a little over 10 hours, but it didn't feel that way. I was very comfortable and the crew took very good care of all of the passengers. Japan Airlines is Ichi Ban!!!"

Cons: "nothing !"

Cons: "My experience overall is fantastic"

Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"

Pros: "Outstanding service as always - ANA rocks!"
Cons: "Too many (redundant) service announcements. Suggest simplifying and keeping them short and less repetitive to avoid inconvenience, esp while enjoying entertainment."

Pros: "We asked for the seafood meal option. Great food and we were served before regular meal service. The ANA staff was unfailingly polite and helpful. The economy class seats were surprisingly comfortable and the entertainment options were well-rounded. We hope to fly on ANA again!"

Cons: "My seat was horrible. I'm sure it was like that for everyone in economy. The seat can't recline putting me in an awkward position for the entire flight. It was a red-eye so I didn't sleep much. Maybe it was the airplane since I flew with ANA last year but with the 787. The difference is almost night and day."

Pros: "ANA is always efficient and polite."
Cons: "Just drinks no snacks on this flight"

Cons: "The food wasn’t very good and the quantity of the snack meager. Worse, the crew refused to give a second roll to our 12 year old even which means that either they only have one for each passenger (and every passenger had theirs) or the crew are parsimonious."

Pros: "Staff and crew were great. Very accommodating."
Cons: "I unfortunately got placed in the middle of one large person and one person who had a strong body odor. Unfortunate but it happens."

Pros: "ANA's staff were professional and helpful. They will do their very best to accommodate your request within reason, very satisfied how they handled our issue."
Cons: "We made our reservations through kayak / justfly.com and paid an additional fee to reserve our preferred seating assignment. During check in, our seat reservations were not granted because justfly.com did convey our preferences."

Pros: "The cabin crew was always found to be welcoming and co-operative attitude. Rest Rooms (Toilets) were found to be clean whenever visited."

Pros: "Food was ok for economy and they bring more coffee when you ask. The flight wasn’t so full so the seat next to me was empty and also I could sit in the exit isle to work on my laptop"
Cons: "The seat pitch is such that you can’t use a laptop in a normal seat. This would have been a big issue if there wasn’t a seat in the exit row for me to borrow. Staff fine but nothing special."

Pros: "Staff were amazing."
Cons: "Nothing great experience!"

Pros: "Excellent legroom. Very polite staff."
Cons: "Buses to plane. Delayed departure. Food not tasty. Limited entertainment options."

Pros: "Food"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Sitting space"

Pros: "Shortest duration"

Pros: "The configuration of 787-900 Busn. Class was very good. However need to age Chivas Regal to 18 years like KAL, not ordinary 12 years. Flight attendants were exceptionally efficient, professional, courteous, and outstanding ambassadors for ANA and Japan itself. In the US Marine Corps we would say "Ooo Rah". I may heed to check out your milage club and stop using various carriers for my trans Pacific flights. Thank you very much ANA."

Cons: "Way too cold"

Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines!

Cons: "Having to pay for in flight entertainment on domestic route and small seats"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "While they say it has entertainment unit they don’t tell you that you have to pay for it and you have to purchase ear phones as well. Had seat 43E it doesn’t recline, pocket at back of seat broken, delayed 2hrs due to faulty PA system and compensation was a free punch cocktail."

Pros: "Check in was very friendly and efficient."

Cons: "Limited entertainment on the upgraded comfort seat program"

Pros: "SMF is easy to get in but rental shuttles are slow to arrive early in the morning. HA crew was very good, left gate on time."
Cons: "Online check-in was a disaster, HA’s web site is not easy to navigate. Some how KAYAK messed up the data transfer and our first and middle names were joined together. HA”s web site will not allow the user to charge personal information within 24 hours of travel. Check-in for overseas travel requires passport information, if it does not match your HA profile then you cannot pre-check-in. Calling HA support was no help. Even airport agents could not fix the issue they could at least over ride the information."

Pros: "Staff were friendly"

Pros: "The food and hospitability"
Cons: "Entertainment options were few and outdated"

Cons: "just the biscoff cookies? what happened to pretzels?"

Pros: "Aircraft was clean and spacious enough in economy. Pretty much always on time. Nothing much else impresses me anymore with Hawaiian Airlines."
Cons: "Everything is a charge. Especially don't like that they "offer souvenir blankets for sale" and they keep the cabin especially cold. All movie/TV show options required an $8 charge on a 6hour (!) flight across the Pacific Ocean. Food was awful! Living in Hawaii I often fly Hawaiian, can't remember the last time I enjoyed a meal on HA. The crew on the LAX-HNL flight was not very friendly either..."

Cons: "Cancelled our flight, after that we didn't get our luggages ☹️ That's why we didn't take part of our trip to Polynesian Cultural Center, the flight was delayed 9 hours"

Cons: "2 hrs delayed. HA said they sent an email but I never received"

Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "There was a late gate change which sent passengers to the other side of the terminal and resulted in a 30 minute delay."

Pros: "The crew were very professional. The food was delicious."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding & exiting quick and easy."
Cons: "Small airport, but not much staff to help you either. Getting boarding pass & baggage tags was a bit of a disorganized mess."

Pros: "Some staff were pretty rude and it was on both flights, which was surprising."

Cons: "Stood in line for 2 hours at Honolulu Airport to drop off bags. We had to be pulled out of the line as our flight was boarding and had to run to the gate. There was no time to eat or anything else. The flight attendants are not helpful nor do they smile much. I asked for something minor on two of the Hawaiian Airlines flight legs on my trip and was told they would come to my seat to see me. (One was for an extra blanket as I had cold air blowing on me and the other was to take my rubbish) They never did. I have never encountered this with any Airline before."

Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"

Pros: "Very helpful customer service rep."

Cons: "I am 40 year resident. The Hawaiian themed safety instructions are corny as I hear them so often...An"

Pros: "Plane got turned around after 3 hours in plane. Had to change 2 flights, my rental car reservation, 2 doctor appointments with no sympathy or even care from Hawaiian airlines. Spent hundreds of dollars and got no compensation. Not happy and will never book again."
Cons: "So disappointed, angry, and sad."

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 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."

Cons: "The flight and the crew members"

Cons: "Short delay waiting for one passenger"

Pros: "Staff were thoughtful and attentive at all times"
Cons: "Nil"

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"

Cons: "IFE not working properly"

Pros: "Hawaiian has a little more leg room."

Pros: "Friendly staff, departed on time. Clean plane, nice touch screen (pointless unless you paid extra for movies). Nice little Kahlua punch drink on return flights to Hawaii."
Cons: "Flight back to Hawaii (which was longer!) had no movies or TV shows unless you shelled out the extra money, kinda uncool. Food was a too-small sort of breakfast hot pocket kinda thing, not bad but not enough. Glad I had bought a sub sandwich at the Vegas airport. Fairly long (40ish minute) wait at HNL for some other plane to leave our gate."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and boarding was quick"
Cons: "The crew kept assuming I was with the passenger next to me despite repeatedly correcting them and was skipped numerous times for water, collection of survey etc. It is the most expensive entertainment I have experienced on an airline, especially for such a long flight. The meal could have been substituted for any type of legitimate entertainment option."

Cons: "The Hawaiian airlines employess were rude and unhelpful. The lady who checked me in seemed to have a problem with my service dog and demanded documentation that is not federally required and have me attitude. She was totally rude. When boarding the plane, the attendant made zero effort to help me locate my seat. Worst Hawaiian flight ever. No aloha. The woman in the seat next to me had a similar rude experience."

Pros: "They serve food on flights, snack selection was good."
Cons: "Touch screen was not calibrated right."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and smooth, the food was great and the staff were very attentive. Drinks and refreshments were provided often and a large variety. Like all airlines the seats in cattle class are a big squeezey, but as Good as any other airline."
Cons: "Nothing, smooth flight with helpful freindly staff."

Pros: "I'm time"
Cons: "Too cold Food bad No free blankets.. Had to keep ordering hot water to keep my hands warm Stewardess spilled cold water on me No free movies"

Pros: "Was pretty comfortable. Seats not too close together. Food was decent."
Cons: "Some staff were friendly but others didnt look like they wanted to be there. Entertainment is hopeless. good only if you pay for it."

Pros: "The seats were comfy and the free meal was great. Too bad I wasn't informed that I would receive a free meal prior; I hurriedly ate a terrible meal in my terminal before boarding. Perhaps that's my fault for not researching the airline, and maybe that oversight is on Kayak (I booked through kayak and their email communication to me was very sparse)."
Cons: "The entertainment options were seriously lacking."

Cons: "Food was below average"

Pros: "Everything was on time and the food and service was good."

Pros: "Service, food, excellent. Most of all, the new entertainment system & window in bathroom!"
Cons: "1. Business class crew stomped around the cabin, making it noisy, and woke me up constantly. 2. Gallery is very loud and badly situated in business class. 3. Chair itself is old & although it’s lie-flat, makes a very uncomfortable night’s sleep."

Cons: "Be on time. 3 hours delay"

Pros: "They are amazing"

Pros: "CX crews are professional as they are very customer oriented"
Cons: "The ground services in Melbourne airport was really bad! Chaotic arrangements for boarding and especially unpleasant staffs!"

Pros: "The flight crew were helpful and attentive. Directions were clear and the boarding was organized."
Cons: "The seats! The seat was uncomfortable that I had to use my U shaped neck pillow as a seat cushion. My flight was 15+ hours but within 3 hours my behind was killing me."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and diligent !"
Cons: "Food could have been better with some more options available onboard!"

Pros: "new seating arrangement is nice"

Pros: "Seat is small"
Cons: "Crew was so busy and no smile"

Pros: "Easy check in and bag drop, staff available when help was needed. Felt comfortable enough to check myself in as every part of precessions was made clear"

Pros: "The seats are old .. the plane is old .. the flight was delayed 2 hours, food even in first class lounge is not apetising the menu has been cut significantly.. lettuce and tomato say that they are not sourced from China .. must be from India as the quality sucks"

Pros: "Yup all gud"
Cons: "All gud"

Pros: "All gud"
Cons: "Extra things like toothpaste etc must have been provided to all"

Cons: "90 minutes delayed"

Pros: "not too bad"
Cons: "not too bad"

Pros: "Friendly staff and very accomodating"
Cons: "Did not enjoy the food choice, tv needed repairs"

Pros: "Crew on leg from Melbourne to Hong Kong terrible - Hong Kong to Boston good"
Cons: "Put a Priority tag on our luggage; Have the Pasta meal for someone sitting in the second row of Premium Economy and then let me eat the economy meal that you substituted instead of interrupting me four times to give me the Premium Economy meal that you said you didn't have. Use a plane other than th"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The baggage of all first class passengers was delayed beyond the time of the later flight .. ridiculous .. also flight delayed as is usual tor all flights in and out of Bangkok. The food on the flight is not appealing .. the front of the seat fell down onto the legs.."

Pros: "Handing our menus in economy class was a nice touch. Service on board was very attentive."

Cons: "New menu is not appealing with lesser choice and smaller portions - inflight entertainment very limited choice - constantly disturb with meaninglessness pa announcement"

Pros: "Boarding was swift"
Cons: "Crew was indifferent and cold in their service. Food was mediocre."

Pros: "The upgraded seat to business class."
Cons: "Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."

Pros: "Everything but the seat"
Cons: "Seat configuration is not worthy of CP business class. It’s the old 777-200, either retire the plane - that would be a shame, or upgrade the seats"

Cons: "Entertainment system seems old, latest movies are not there and the flight maps interface looks like as of it is from the 2000s."

Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable - struggled to sleep comfortably."

Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"

Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."

Cons: "There was no toiletries and slippers. Snacks should be given timely. It should not ask for it."

Cons: "They don’t offer enough food on a long flight"

Pros: "My checked luggage bag was damaged. I noticed the damage only after I I reached home. However, when I reported Cathay Pacific baggage staff were very helpful and professional. I know several airlines who hide behind bureaucratic procedures to stonewall customers. CP is not one of them. Excellent service, before, after and during the flight."

Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."

Pros: "Service and staff. Food was better than most and they weren't stingy with the wine."
Cons: "Plane seemed tired. The usb charger didn't work and the reading lights were impossible to use without putting glare into other passengers eyes. The seats were uncomfortable and their design made it difficult to stretch your legs out beneath the row in front. It was a 777 and I never find Boeings as comfortable as Airbus. Selection of in flight entertainment was limited and sound quality was poor."

Pros: "We always fly with Cathay. Usually 2-3 times per year and feel the staff are professional and service is extremely good. I recently fractured my ankle and staff provided excellent assistance."
Cons: "The breakfasts for economy passengers is shocking. This has not always been the case. However, Now it is presented in a card board box and of very poor quality."

Pros: "No drinks served before the meal. No water brought round during the night. Cabin staff efficient if a bit brisk. Food not quite OK - no imagination. Films really good."

Pros: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
Cons: "Airline could have have notified us the flight was cancelled via email before we got to the airport. THEY DID NOT.

Pros: "Great crew, great service"
Cons: "Could use a greater reclining angle in economy."

Pros: "Staff onboard were extremely helpful."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific lounge (The Peir) didn't broadcast boarding announcements so we nearly missed it."
