Wonderful service and genuine care!

published

Our baby daughter suffered a seizure at the boarding gate while waiting to board a Hawaiian airline flight home to Sydney. The staff we absolutely amazing in providing assistance to my family and calling for medical help. Although we were not able to fly home because of the medical emergency, the Hawaiian airlines staff were in constant contact with us helping to recover our luggage and ringing to check on our baby and the family.
Once we were able to return home, all staff from check in to on the flight were exceptional and made sure that we were catered for and made comfortable with our sick daughter. I cannot fault their service!

Choose another airline

published

I paid for a full service airline and got below standard service. Ground staff were jaded and not interested in helping. Food was disgusting. Freezing cold sandwich for lunch, no snacks on a long haul flight. Nothing offered to eat for at least 7 hours. Meal service wasn't announced at all. No choice in meals. Everyone got the same horrible food.

Terrible airline. Never again.

Don’t have high expectations

published

Flew from Brisbane to Honolulu at night and thought service was below par ... gave them the benefit of the doubt because it was a night flight and people were sleeping. Flew in between 4 islands whilst in Hawaii - no real concerns apart from all flights were late! Return flight from Honolulu to Brisbane is day flight and service was non existent! Was told that there were 9 flight assistants on board to make our flight more comfortable - not sure where the 9 flights assistants were ... no water was offered during the flight, no snacks and food was horrible! Won’t be flying Hawaiian airlines again or recommending them!

Seats were fine flew one leg Business and other legs equivalent to premium economy, (AN AREA JUST BEHIND BUSINESS)
Flew Brisbane Honolulu, stay over then to outer island return NO PROBLEMS.
Flew Honolulu stayed a week , then onto to Japan return another time. NO PROBLEMS!!
This was all in 2016/17

Needs to improve

published

Having flown with Hawaiian Airlines on quite a few occasions, in all classes (Business, Premium Economy and Economy) on a recent flight to the USA mainland I noticed a distinct drop off in the level of service and the quality of food served. My original flight with them back in 2012 on the inaugural flight ex Brisbane to Honolulu, and for the next few years I couldn’t fault their food or service, but this last flight both over and back was a severe disappointment. Maybe with their increased popularity they are struggling to maintain their previous high level of service but on recent form I’ll be looking elsewhere for my USA flights.

Maybe we were lucky??!!

After reading the negative reports on this airline we were not anticipating a good trip. However, both HA444 and HA 443 fights proved to be OK. Yes, we paid extra for "Extra comfort" and this we got - plenty of leg room, pillow and blanket. Yes, the food was not first class and the service was average but you get what you pay for. Beer, wine and spirits available on both flights, you have to use the call button to get the attention of the cabin staff, but service was prompt and helpful. My TV did not work and a staff member went and got me an Ipad so I could watch the movies. All in all I would say value for money.

Flight HA 0444 to Hawaii

published

Flight HA 0444 was delayed for technical problems for half an hour then another hour, and another hour, and another hour and again another hour. Then it was cancelled leaving every one in a bad way. They gave us locals 2 cab vouchers, onreto take us home and one to go back to the airport the next day. We arrived home and gavethe cab driver the voucher. He told us it was expired. The date it had expired was 4 month ago. I had to pay $80. These vouchers were given to all the locals. Can't wait for what we hear today from everyone. This mob were not professional.
Tried to call them to find out how to get reimbursed but got nowhere. They gave me a website address and told me to make a claim there.

My honeymoon experience to Hawaii

published

I took a trip to Hawaii for the first time ever for my honeymoon with my husband. Somehwere I had planned to go since I was a child. The island is beautiful and the people are lovely. Unfortunately the staff and customer service wasn't. We were left hungry both on the way and back as they couldn't provide a vegetarian meal even though I had checked double times both ways. no effort was made to provide substitute food and the staff has very little concern. The 9 hour flight was a struggle and we will not be flying with them again. After complaining we received 100 credit with the airline. Not sure how this helps me?

Quite reasonable .

published

We have just returned from our trip to Hawaii. I would just like to make a few points from our experience.
1. Extra comfort seats are worth the money. I had a good nights sleep and enjoyed the extra room.
2. The plane left on time and boarding was well done in plenty of time.
3. Cabin service is below par for a full service airline. The meals were very basic with no choices. Take your own snacks!
4.The cabin staff seemed disinterested in service. We had one friendly lady.
5. The aircraft seemed older than Im used to . But it got us there!
6. Dont have expectations of a top airline then you will not be disappointed!
