Hey all. I'm taking a trip to Hawai'i in July and was wondering which airline would be the most "comfortable" to fly. With fare as no object, who offers PTV's or even may still serve meals in coach? Legroom? Haven't really done much searching on the aircraft types that will be flying into HNL. Outta GSO, im not worried. Just wondering who would be the best bet outta say MSP, ORD, ATL, IAH, DFW, etc. to HNL. Thanks for any input.

Well, if you'd been out just a bit earlier I'd say it was a no-brainer: Book yourself on the last NW DC-10 flight MSP-HNL! But that's over now... I've been to Maui back in 2004, absolutely gorgeous place, flew AA LAX-OGG (752), nothing special at all about that though.

I would fly the 777. I wouldn't take NWA, for their aging fleet offers no comfort. CO is nice, but UAL with the 777 is my choice. As far as comfort? the 777 for UAL is two class, and the comfort level outside of E-plus is not so desirable. Maybe a CO 767 offers the space you require.

If you are looking for IFE heaven, NW A330's from MSP offer 40 MOVIES and a few short programs all on-demand, but you'll have to pay for a sandwich and chips. If you want a free meal and decent IFE (not on-demand), choose DL or CO. If you want decent IFE but will buy your meals, then AA, US, or UA. Also, HA from the west coast offers free hot meals. Hope it helps.....

When I booked our trip to HNL, I used WorldPerks miles and was given many different flight options. I chose DL through CVG on the outbound with the 767-400 and NW on the return through MSP with the DC10. Delta offered us better service on that trip because of the meals and snacks we were given. There were various movies and shows showing on the overhead TV's. On the return it was the old NWA snack box purchase option and movies on the screen in front of the cabin.
Now of course that has changed. If you haven't been on the A330, take NW. The 330 is a great bird with great inflight features with one exception and that's food. I'm guessing that the HNL service on the 330 is much the same as the DC10 was save for the PTV's. Go NW, bring your own food and enjoy the A330.

Quoting LACA773 (Reply 17): My last choice for you would be HA. And that only being because you'll most likely have to connect a couple of times to get onboard one of their great flights from the West Coast.
OR he could do RDU - LAX on Delta and LAX - HNL on Hawaiian. I think Hawaiian even operates out of the same terminal as DL in LAX. I know they do in SFO, but not sure about LAX.
The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...
