If so, how did you like them? How was their service? Also, do they still operate 737-200's?

They are AWESOME!!!! Friendly Pilots, Friendly FA's, and great service. I flew on a Boeing 737-200, and it was so clean I thought it was brand new!!!! I hope they still have them.

Yes i flew them them first class from Oakland to Maui in April. It was aswome..737-700 they have very very good service, they blow everyone out of the water with their service to Hawaii, as far as Island hopping I have flown both several times and I really didnt notice a difference. Hawaiian is getting 717's which would be great since all the inter island aircraft are very old.......

I flew from Honolulu to Kona and back on aloha, I didnt like it much, the seats and aircraft were dirty and on the way back it felt like my seat was about to fall backwards. It was a very short flight though so I didnt really notice it. The juice they serve is real good except you only get like 2 minutes to drink it. Overall I would say you get what you pay for.

Flew them last Fall from HNL-OGG and back. They fly 737-200s almost exclusively, with the exception of the 737-700's used on mainlaind trips.

Also, I have read that they have a 737-200 that is rated for ETOPS for overwater destinations in the Marshall Islands.

Their aircraft interiors are a bit ratty, but the FAs are friendly. Funny thing, when we first boarded our aircraft on the way to Maui, the pungent smell of orchids wafted through the cabin. We chuckled to ourselves and assumed that they sprayed some fake orchid deodorizer in the cabin. We inquired and found out that they had several crates of orchids stored in the belly of the aircraft.

I have flown a few times on Aloha interisland. As others have stated, they use 737-200s exclusively on their interisland and Pacific Island (Midway, Marshall Islands, etc.) flights, with 737-700s used for the flights to Oakland, California. The 737-300s and 737-400s they used to have in service are now with other airlines.

Interisland inflight service is ok; you can't really expect much when the longest flight (Honolulu-Hilo) is around 200 miles, 35-45 minutes. Personally, I have found that Hawaiian has slightly wider seats and more legroom than Aloha. Generally I fly interisland on Hawaiian, because I am often connecting to/from Los Angeles and get the best deal with Hawaiian the whole way, compared to interisland on Hawaiian or Aloha, then to LAX on another airline.

I flew them from honalulu-kona and kona-honalulu and the plane was very clean, we only got a coke because it seemed like right when we tookoff, we landed like 10 minutes later but you get what you pay for. I am not sure about the FA's because I dont remember much about the flight

Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

I've flown on them a few times, and they're a great airline, the FA's were VERY friendly and nice, and despite the short hops, the service was good.
