Cons: "Except this time... only time this has happened. Went to get boarding pass- had a small rolling suitcase (bought specifically for carry on and have used for last two years flying 6+ times per year) and a shoulder bag/purse. A woman flagged me down a so walked by saying my rolling case was too large an too heavy. I said “oh no i use this everytime i fly. It’s specifcally for carry on. Also it’s not even full so there’s no way it’s too heavy” also how would she know by looking how much it weights? In short she got very angry at me and said i have no choice but to check it. Then went over to counter and the lady said “you don’t need to check this is the correct size” she was very nice and i explained what happened. I’m just telling you this as maybe some of the newer employees are taking their jobs too seriously. Aloha!"
Pros: "Staff gave out some wonderful fruit drinks."

Cons: "Extremely noisy plane. Cold"
Cons: "They did not show a movie in flight. You could rent an ipad,with a few movies on it for 15.00 dollars."
Pros: "Not that much, your airline is going to a place that is limited in air travel competition."
Cons: "The food is terrible, the buying options for food is dreadful. The seats have no USB to charge a device (the most important feature to me. And every airline is required to have its customers fill out that form to come into Hawaii - BUY A PACK OF PENS!!!!! It's not my responsibility to have a pen - totally annoyed about this one small amenity not being offered. Also I'm sick of hearing your plug for a credit card."

Pros: "On schedule"
Cons: "bad pog"
Cons: "Our flight did not leave til 8, boarding was from 7:15-7:40, we arrive a little late, 7:19, but still makable and they would not let us put our bags on the plane. Where is this policy made clear for people? As far as we knew we still had 20 minutes. Our options were we could pay 700+ dollars per person to reroute our plane, or we could go to Hawaii without our stuff, which was just not within reason obviously."
Cons: "There was no TV's for each individual.. It's a small complaint.. But yea.."
Pros: "And they assigned me a middle seat at the very back. Although I checked in one day prior."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I really had a comfortable ride- thank you as always!"
Pros: "Online check in, no luggage, mobile boarding passes, boarded quickly and took off immediately LOL! Ideal flight!"
Pros: "There was one male worker who tried to bring me extra coleslaw cause he saw the other flight attendants not offer me anything instead of a meat centered meal. I appreciated that but didn't catch his name."
Cons: "The workers were so rude - especially a woman named Mi. they had no vegetarian options on the plane for food and basically laughed at me when I asked for it. They had no free entertainment at all not even a movie for everyone on the main monitors. They asked for volunteers to check their bags and I volunteered and when I made a connecting flight to Kauai (final stop Oahu which is a 35 min flight) I tried to switch my flight to an earlier one because I realized That I had a four hour layover before my 35 min flight -_- and they said that I would have been able to but since I checked my carry on I couldn't. And they said it was because my bag would get there much later than me - which I was upset about but understood. Fast forward 4 1/2 hours later and I land on Oahu. My bag is sitting at the terminal because it came over on a plane that got there before me. Totally unhappy - I fly to California and back almost every month and I've never had an experience like this"
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: "they run a tight ship"
Cons: "only game in town, so they charge what they want"
Pros: "Our brakes were not up to par to land in Kauai. Detour to Honolulu. Sucked!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Food and Entertainment are 3☆ because it is non applicable"
Pros: "staff were great and friendly and helpful"
Cons: "not a big deal but 2 things: 1) plane was a bit dirty in between the seats. 2) we also were in the terminal but getting food when we heard our names on the overhead pager saying they were going to close the gate in 5 minutes and if we didn't get on we'd be left behind. That was 30 minutes before take off that they were going to close the gate. We rushed over and ended up boarding and then waiting on the plane forever. not sure whey they need to get everyone on so early. I guess i'm used to flying southwest airlines where they let people run up 5 minutes before they close the gates."
Pros: "The dinner"
Pros: "I like the seating accommodations that they made."
Cons: "It was extremely cold and you were only offered to purchase a blanket. It was not fair."
