They had no mercy for two women over 80 years old, they only gave them a wheelchair and left them on a waiting list for more than 6 hours, they did not speak English and could not eat or move, they also transported them all the time through the airport from one gate to another. airline customer service are very rude and very abrupt to speak and give information. the truth is I have a very bad concept about the airline

This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on. The plane had no fans at each seat and it was extremely hot for 10 hours. Each seat was unbelievably small so it was impossible to reach on the ground to pick something up as needed. When the person in front of me reclined his seat, I couldn’t even use my tray table fully.

Pros: Standard flight

Cons: My connecting flights were terrible. I was kept at the airport on a layover to another city and they wouldn't let me board because they said my passport number was entered wrong on the reservation. This made no sense as I had gotten off another flight on my way back home. No one at the airport in Shanghai was helpful and it was really frustrating to think that I would be stuck in China. I was finally able to track down a international supervisor who was able to print out my boarding passes and let me board my flight. Unfortunately, another family with small kids were dealing with the same issue as me only their flight was leaving in 30 mins. I hope they were able to make their flight.

Cons: Hong Kong Air wouldn’t give me my boarding pass until I had booked an onward flight leaving Thailand. I wish I had foreseen this, it’s annoying having to book a flight in 5 minutes when you don’t know your travel plans.

My son flew to Seoul from SFO on a Hawaiian Airlines flight that had a layover in Honolulu. When he got to Seoul, he found out they had lost his bag. He had to file a claim and two days later, he still hasn't received it. When he filed a claim, they told him to contact them if he hadn't heard from them in 4-5 days (!). In following up, the number they gave him didn't work, and so he emailed them, and they said they haven't gotten the bag yet and they will contact him when they hear anything (!). So my son has to start his summer program in Seoul without any clothes or his back-up toiletry supplies, although he was able to pick up a few necessities to tide him over. NO offer of emergency toiletries; NO assistance. So the moral of the story is: yeah, fly Hawaiian Airlines if you can carry everything on with you, or you don't mind dealing with poor customer support and no clothes for a four-week stay in a country you've never been to before.
