Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Cons: "Under 2 babies did not get enough milk They should have baby food items cereals, crackers or baby foods options"
Cons: "Poor service and flight was dirty"
Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Cons: "Long trip"
Pros: "Q-suites and business class flight crew."
Cons: "Everything from check in up to boarding. Ground staff lacked hospitality. Disappointing frequent flyer program."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Pros: "The leg room was huge, the food was excellent and a lot and the customer service was great not my first time to fly with Qatar and it won’t be my last, the made my trip worthwhile. Thank you"
Cons: "No complaints so far so good"
Cons: "Extra baggage was charged $250 for 1 extra baggage when other airlines change $70. Also on the Qatar Airway site it states that after 3 hours of the flight if seats are available business class upgrade would cost much less and this was not the case. They wanted $2000 for the upgrade."
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Pros: "Food and service."
Pros: "all are nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"
Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."
Pros: "Good service best price, good food comfort I think is best airlines in word in my opinion"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"
Pros: "Every thing is good in Qatar airways"
Pros: "- Service - Food Quality"
Cons: "- Food Quantity - Entertainment System - very limited (or old) options - No Internet - Leg Space is challenge"
Cons: "- Leg Space is challenge"
Cons: "We had booked the flight together and they ended up putting us in different rows and couldn’t fix that. We travelled 14 hours apart :("
Pros: "All around a great experience."
Cons: "The internet worked for like 2 minutes and then said my time was up, even though I was supposed to get 15 minutes for free or something."
Pros: "It was booked for my elderly parents and they were very pleased by the service they received."
Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."
Pros: "Good, attentive service by the crew."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to business class."
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Pros: "We were late for our originally flight, got to LAX 15 minutes after check-in was closed, although we checked in online prior, but due to 4th of July weekend the freeway was very heavy traffic. So we ended up going back next day with the supervisor's incredible allowance, offer. I got very emotional when she told us our option. Thank you. Unfortunatley I didn't get her name, due to our shock))"
Pros: "Great food, and excellent choice of in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Pros: "The crew was excellent in their mannerisms, efficiency, service and never ending smiles."
Cons: "The flight was not overly crowded and many of the passengers were seated with three people per set of seats while others were seated individually and able to spread out with much more comfort. I felt that when the flight crew saw this they could have made everyone much more comfortable by switching people to two people per row thus giving them more room especially on such a long flight."
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "6-hour delays coming and going. Sounds like a an issue."
Pros: "I liked everything about it."
Cons: "My trip was to long but it wasn't there fault. I was so tired."
Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and decent crew."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but edible. No options for a vegan who didn't choose a vegan meal as the flight was booked last minute. Unhealthy food."
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."
Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"
Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."
Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."
Cons: "Short flight great friendly service."
Pros: "flight was cancelled"
Cons: "almost missed my overseas connection"
Pros: "Great seat configuration on A330"
Cons: "Cabin was a little too warm. Would rather have it be cool and have to put on a sweatshirt."
Cons: "Incoming plane was late, but we made it to Kona in good time, and we were out of the airport and at our lodging 30 minutes before I thought we would be, so we must have been on time"
Pros: "First class! Never done it before but was pretty amazing. The extra comfort are great too"
Pros: "Crew was amazing to re-open doors and let 14 passengers board late after horrendously slow TSA throughput. Wish TSA could function like HA."
Cons: "TSA needs to get their act together at Honolulu."
Cons: "Flight was ~1 hour late with little/ no explanation in boarding area."
Pros: "First time I flew with Hawaiian and it was the best service ever! Oakland to final destination Lihue. Definitely my number one airline and will be referring folks!"
Pros: "Crew and flight were great!"
Cons: "It took forever to unload the luggage in Oakland, and it was very disorganized. People on the flight were sent to Carousel 3, and later told to move to Carouse 4. Our son had circle the airport for almost an hour to pick us up!"
Pros: "Loved the full service...like in the good old days! Complimentary snacks, meals, and drinks. I would highly recommend them and will definitely use them again if I can come back to Hawaii."
Cons: "Most airlines offer free entertainment on long distance domestic flights as long as you bring your own headphones. This is a 5-hour flight. Why would Hawaiian Airline want to charge $7.99 for viewing a movie?"
Pros: "I usually have a great experience with kayak."
Cons: "I meant to book a flight for my brother, but because I was logged into kayak, it automatically put me as the passenger. I didn't realize the mistake until 2 hours before the flight. Couldn't transfer the ticket into his name so we just lost the money and had to rebook him a flight. I'm irritated that I wasn't even prompted to enter passenger's name/info and that I didn't catch the mistake earlier. I'm also irritated that Hawaiian airlines couldn't do anything but give me a travel voucher that would cost $200 in fees to use, which was the original price of the ticket."
Pros: "They offered a free light breakfast and they treated us great"
Cons: "We finally arrived back in Phoenix. Again we have no bags."
Pros: "Crew was great. Very oroficient"
Cons: "Not enough I pads for everyone who wanted one. Not enough space for everyone to have a carryon bag. Overhead lighting didn’t work on my sons seat. The arm on my seat was broken, wouldn’t lock."
Pros: "The price. User friendly website/app"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours. Missed conections. Lousy 10$ voucher. Poor service."
Pros: "It was nice to be one of the earlier groups to board the plane"
Cons: "Nothing in particular, the flight was really fine. Great views from the window seat!"
Pros: "Great staff, loved the free wine and the gift from shutterfly. The blankets are nice, light and large."
Cons: "Very loud inside the plane. No fan overhead. All entertainment was only for purchase. Food was not very good but the fruit in the morning was very fresh. It was also a very bumpy flight and I would have appreciated if I received more updates from the captain, however, a lot of people were sleeping so that would have been intrusive. I suggest a way for the captain to write a message to passengers updating them on the flight that they can access on the TV so there aren't as many announcements on overhead flights"
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: "I was surprised we even tried to fly through that storm. But the crew were excellent."
Pros: "On-line system"
Cons: "Need to sort out leaving bag if you've checked in on line and printed your own boarding pass. Need to sort out organization of gate boarding, too much a free-for-all. Need to get staff that seem happy to guide you into the plane not grumpy."
Cons: "The captain announced our arrival time saying it was Pacific Standard Time ! (It's still Pacific daylight Time). Didn't exactly inspire confidence."
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: "I booked late, but I got a seat pretty close to the one I chose, and they made sure I got an aisle, like I specified. They gave us a complimentary glass of rum punch (if you're 21+) and I love this drink! Sweet and satisfying. I believe they do this on all their flights."
Cons: "This didn't affect me personally, but you do have to pay $15 extra to use their entertainment system. I'm glad I downloaded a movie and some tv shows to my tablet before going."
Pros: "Love the fact that they served complimentary lunch on the plane. It's a perk you don't get anymore on flights. It was a great surprise. Also, there were 4 of us traveling but one person bought her ticket later so her seat was away from us. Without our asking, by the time we got to the gate, they had moved her to sit on the same row with us. The crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "It would be nice if they offered some of the tv shows for free. I understand paying for movies but tv should be complimentary. And as with most planes, it felt cramped once the person in front of me let his seat back."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment?"
Cons: "Tasteless snack Entertainment not included"
Pros: "Dog food !!!!!"
Pros: "I've always had good experiences in many other trips on Hawaiian. This past trip was delayed 4 hours"
Cons: "Four hour delay coming home"
Pros: "The food offered was tasty enough"
Cons: "The chair was the worst one I've experienced this far in an airplane."
Cons: "I did not like having to pay for movies after I paid $80 for extra Comfort seat"
Pros: "Liked the onboard service and friendliness of attendants. In-flight meal--FREE by the way!--was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding area at Gate 58 in LAX was horrible. Gate agent didn't bother to control the passengers who unfortunately always crowd the gate. The PA system was way too soft."
Pros: "I really appreciated the pillow & blanket. I've always wondered why you guys keep it so cold."
Cons: "The hot meal was nice, but I'd prefer salad and soup in this kind of setting."
Pros: "Very smooth boarding, take-off, landing by pilot & crew Very attentive, caring and nice cabin staff Fast baggage claim"
Cons: "Long waits to check baggage Breakfast was too rich (biscuit with spicy cheese), though the fruit was good I didn't mind not having a movie/tv to watch on screen, but would have liked to be able to listen to in-flight music Location of the life vest jackets took away a lot of leg room"
Pros: "Clean plane, good service"
Cons: "Only the coffee - too weak."
Cons: "Poor customer service to account for severe delay and cancellations. No partner airline service. No back up flight crew. Worst flight experience of my life."
Pros: "I could not get a seat assignment until just before I boarded the plane even though I bought my ticket months in advance. They ended up putting me at a seat next to a wall (like a window seat without a window) and it was very clausterphobic. Free meal service was nice but no vegetarian option."
Pros: "My experience boarding was a bit of a disaster as the boards at the airport stated an incorrect gate and reported an hour delay which was not correct. I ended up having to sprint to make the flight in a different wing an hour before I thought it was leaving. I barely made it onboard. I think this is an issue with the airport, not the airline but this is the only forum I have to state this. My experience with the crew was amazing. Very welcoming and hospitable. My experience with the airport staff was the opposite. Very unhelpful and cold. The flight went fairly smoothly, but, as is the case with most American airlines these days, the seats are uncomfortable and cramped. The inflight meal was good (for airline food) and very much appreciated on the 6 hour flight. Overall, this was a pretty typical American flying experience. Unfortunately, I was returning from flying with Asian and Australian airlines which were much more comfortable and customer-focused, so my experience on Hawaiian seemed subpar."
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 teriyaki chicken and sticky rice lunch was the best meal we've had in recent years, and my husband really enjoyed the complimentary glass of wine they served with the meal ."
Cons: "ALL messages should be closed captioned on the screen. The messages on the loud speaker are garbled; therefore, no one is listening and passengers are talking so you can't hear ANYTHING anyway! Can't even hear directions if there's an emergency landing. Closed captioning would solve it."
Pros: "We sat on the Teramac for 30 min without an explanation."
Cons: "See above. Seat was hard and uncomfortable. I wasn't the only one to state as such."
Pros: "Free food and free alcoholic beverage. Crew very nice."
Cons: "Too strong a/c. So cold."
Pros: "Excellent service, the food was perfect, they gave us a Ron Hawaiian, it was so yummy...and they gave us a good impression from the island."
Cons: "would like complimentary TV channels and movies"
Cons: "Passenger have to pay for every single entertainment."
Pros: "Most of the crew were nice except for when I had to borrow pen from the two crews to fill out the form, both weren't willing to help. I was seated with somehow big guy and basically occupied half of my seat which was very uncomfortable for me to even move a little bit."
Cons: "Food service. Happy that meal is still being served."
Pros: "The ground steward in LAX attended to our needs. He was cheerful and made us feel welcome."
Cons: "The service on both flights, from LAX to Taipei and from Taipei to Manila. The flight attendants need to smile more often. They look so serious, especially when you ask them for something."
Pros: "Service is excellent as always"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Food options!"
Cons: "Airport boarding lounge was ice cold. Staff couldn’t be bothered with it."
Pros: "The seat @ premuim economy is excellent with great amenities. Food was awesome and catered to cutomers diet needs. The crew was great considering the Language barriers."
Cons: "Nothing! Awesome Airline. Would use again when traveling to Asia."
Pros: "Everything is ok but too much bumpy"
Pros: "food and seat are good."
Cons: "Good everything"
Pros: "crew was efficient, the taipei to ontario leg is more comfortable than taipei manila which has a linger leg room"
Cons: "improve food with better choices"
Pros: "Food was slightly better than the previous flight."
Cons: "Same lousy headphones. My seat had a led rest that made it harder to get in and out, and wasnt usable due to the close distance to the seat in front. What was the designer thinking? I missed the drink service if there was one, never saw water going around until right at the end. . ."
Pros: "Sitting in the emergency row."
Cons: "More veg. meal options. Please make sure to offer a complete balanced meal, not just a serving of veggies."
Pros: "Food was good flight was on time"
Cons: "It was good"
Cons: "It would be better if the chair a little bit bigger! But overall you still have the best service so far! Thank you very much!"
Pros: "The whole Experience was Amazing. From Comfortable Seat, Great Flight Crew, Tastey Food"
Cons: "Sorry, I’m always picky about the thinness of the seat cushions, the meals, and the IFE. But I still rate China Airlines as the best affordable Chinese Airlines I’ve flown. And it’s super convenient that China Airlines flies out of Ontario CA now. ONT vs LAX. It’s a no brainer. ONT every time."
Pros: "Lovely crew, good amount of food and drink available."
Cons: "Sound on some of the entertainment options was too low to hear, so I ended up using my phone instead."
Cons: "Ontario Airport for international arrival is confusing. I think this has to do with more the airport than the airline...although the airline could have helped too. There is no one to ask questions once you exited the security area. The signage is incorrect for airport shuttle to the parking lots. In order to get to the parking lot, one would need to first take a rental car shuttle to the regular terminal and then change to an airport shuttle."
Pros: "Services verygood"
Pros: "Service & price"
Cons: "Not much legroom for economy customers, limited entertainment & food selections"
Pros: "Nice clean plane. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Couldn’t fault anything"
Pros: "The movies and food"
Cons: "I was seated at the exit seats next to the wall. I feel the seat was more small there. My body hurt so much."
Pros: "The Ontario terminal location is much more convenient and faster than LAX."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. But you should really add more child movies and more fun games."
Cons: "I didn't like the food no offense but terrible."
Pros: "Flight quicker than I thought... Which we loved"
Cons: "Custom exit procedures"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient"
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "Best long flight I've ever been on. Yummy food, leg room (I'm 5f10in), great entertainment, left on time, fast boarding and fast unboarding."
Pros: "Overall flight was OK. Seems like a good value for the price paid."
Pros: "Flight crew, food very tasty and good portion size, good selection of entertainment, bathrooms clean and well maintained."
Cons: "A little bigger seat and a bit more leg room would be nice."
Cons: "there was not much information at the airport, the flight did not appear on the screen. but when I asked, I get the information."
Pros: "Recent movies were available. Enjoyed the personal screen with games and options to keep entertained."
Cons: "Originally, I had 2 flights scheduled from Myanmar to SF. One connecting flight from Yangon to Taipei, then from Taipei to San Francisco with a 7 hour lay over in between. Not too bad. 3 weeks before my vacation to Myanmar, China airlines moved my return connecting flight from Yangon to Taipei a day early, which meant I would need to cancel hotel reservations in Yangon and would be stranded in Taipei overnight. I called China Airlines and the only option was to move my 2nd flight a day early. No apologies or reason why my connecting flight was changed a day earlier."
Pros: "Better entertainment."
Cons: "No footrests, skipped at mealtime and flight crew response delayed, not offered arrival form"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The plane was kept really cold and entertainment system didnt work very well."
Pros: "The boarding process was organized and fast . The flight was smooth ."
Pros: "The staff was very efficient. They even helped wrap my broken bag. Thank you for that extra mile!"
Cons: "I was pleased with everything."
Cons: "The lady, her name is Thi. She told so mean to me and my mom. Her service is not professional. I don't like her!!!"
Cons: "When two people are travelling together and adjoining seats were needed, it was impossible to make the seat changes online. Only one seat was able to be moved. We finally had to wait to ask crew members at check-in. It was an anxious time."
Cons: "2 hours late because of mechanical issues. They offered food with no water or juice - later only coffee or tea on a 3 and a half hour flight. Staff was not the friendliest - asked for water twice, was told just a moment but was never brought any. How do you not give people water on flight over 3 hours? I would have even paid for it. I have a history of heart failure and was worried because my ankles were swelling and my legs were tingling. We missed our bus because of the delay, The airline staff in taiwan took all of our travel info and said they would help us book other transport to get where we were going in Cambodia. When we got to Cambodia the check-in desk was closed so info told us to go to the china airlines office - we waited almost an hour and still no one showed up (middle of the afternoon). Had to pay 6x the price to get to Sihanoukville plus we weren't able to get a refund on the bus tickets. Crying, screaming kids in front of us kept standing up on the seats so no one behind them could see the TV - staff said nothing. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful! Very friendly, attentive and courteous! Food was good."
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "They put many American airlines to shame, as they are so efficient and pleasant. Flights were very on-time, with only small delays. Very good at de-planing passengers quickly."
Cons: "Nothing was bad. Great flight/plane and crew."
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and entertainment. Leg room was a bit tighter than what I'm used to. Otherwise decent flight."

Cons: "Seat size is VERY small."
Cons: "The flight fron TPE to HNL was delayed 90 minutes which caused me to miss my connecting flight in HNL. The crew did apologize"
Cons: "The cost public transportation made miss the flight and i had to buy a new ticket and i was not helped at All when i called the company"
