Depending on route EWR-HNL via CO would be fantastic CO3 LAX-HNL is great as well - but from LAX or SFO on any other carrier would be a tie between DL and HA?

Just my 2 Cents ~

Any airline will do, just make sure you don't end up on an AA 757.

HA- the First product is not as good as CO, a UA 767/777, or an AA 763.

You might want to look at some cabin views....



Some things are actually better at 30,000+ feet...

Thanks everyone!

CO doesn't work for my schedule, it looks like AA has the best seat pitch, I'll do a full trip report when I get back.

Where are you flying from ......you can try UA 777 first class from DEN. I believe UA and CO are the only ones who fly a T7 to HNL, and they are the best service


ROLL TIDE!!!

Nashville then back to Den, UA apparently is back to 767-300 from HNL to the west coast.

I went ahead and booked AA M80/767-300 via DFW (62 inches of seat pitch  Smile

UA 763/757 HNL-LAX-DEN (Their 767-300 only has 38" seat pitch but it is a shorter flight back!)

Thanks for the feed back

CO All The way!!! lol... GREAT F product to Haiwaii.

However, if I were to fly to HNL (which hopefully one day I will!) I'd hope to fly UA, just because they were the HNL pioneers!! But that's just me...

not AA... I flew LAX-HNL rtn in AA F recently and was disappointed. Very old cabin, seats looked like some Austin Powers retro rubbish. Food was good but cabin/seats poor.


cabin crew: doors to automatic and cross-check...

I flew to HNL on Monday on AA 5 from DFW to HNL.

seats were dated but 62" of pitch is nice, and blue leather so not Ausin Powers-esqe

Food was OK

Staff was nice

overall not bad

coing back on UA HNL-LAX on a 763 hopefuly it will be nice.
