GiantJets,
Hawaiian Airlines is OK in my mind when I travelled it about 2 years ago on the same route of yours: LAX-HNL. I took the economy class and they took off on time.
Besides, the food they serve is REALLY GOOD  Smile/happy/getting dizzy It is some kind of pasta that tastes really GREAT!! Also, there are some rice cripies!! Yummy!
DC10 is not a bad choice, but they got the cabin a bit dirty that time.
At that time, the FA are mainly male !! With only one or two female FA on board the DC 10s!
When I arrived HNL that night, my friends who greeted me were almost stunned when they knew that I was travelling Hawaiian Airline, because they thought other airlines are better!!

I am a native now living on the mainland and go back to Hawaii every year to visit my family and friends. Hawaiian Airlines is my only choice to the Islands they truly know the Aloha spirit. Aloha Airlines would also be a recommended choice they now serve Honolulu, Oahu and Kahului, Maui from the west coast maybe I will try them next year but for now It is Hawaiian Airlines all the way to Hawaii. The food is great the crews are wonderful and truly Hawaiian. We all look forward to a trip report from you soon?

Mahalo nui loa!!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I had a trip from PDX to HNL, and the service on the DC-10 was fantastic... Flight attendants were super friendly, as were gate agents. The FA's came around often instead of offering one drik service and the they're gone for the rest of the flight like on the no frills airlines. The food was really, really good, and the inflight entertainment was just fine. I found the DC-10's to be clean and comfortable. I can't recommend them enough!

I've heard nothing but great things about Hawaiian Airlines!  Smile
If I were you, I'd fly them as soon as possible!
The DC-10 is disappearing fast from many fleets. It will be someting to tell your grandkids about when that time comes around.

I can only agree with the other comments recommending Hawaiian as well. My brother in the past couple of weeks had to make a couple of trips from Hawaii to LA, the first one was on Hawaiian and the second was Northwest. I got the impression that overall he though Hawaiian was better. I distinctly remember him saying that the food was better on Hawaiian, one observation that matched my own on my trips between Hawaii and the west coast over the past few years, mostly on Hawaiian but a couple of them on Delta.

I just returned from Hawaii and I flew United 757 to LIH. While in LAX I saw a Hawaiian DC-10 with what looks like an 'R' on the #2 engine,what does it mean?
I,by the way liked UA's service to Hawaii.They had a 'half way to Hawaii' contest and when you boarded the plane they has lays on had Hawaiian pictures on the TV's and Hawaiian music playing.

The 'R' on the #2 engine of two of Hawaiian's DC-10-30s (N140AA and N141AA) is the logo of Renaissance Cruises. These two aircraft are configured to operate the LAX-Tahiti nonstop charter flights. They have more first class seats than usual.

BTW, the correct spelling of the floral necklace United_Fan refers to is "lei" not "ley".

For inter island travel, Hawaiian kicks ass!!! I could not believe that the pitch was 35 in coach! oh wait, the plain is almost all coach. All leather seats, hot f/a's(ladie f/a's btw) and they gave out free wine. Also I got laied by the f/a! (when they put flowers around your neck...)
They are the nicest group of people out there.
We actualy sung on the plain from the main island to kaui.
we stayed in the Hyatt in Kaui, and it is in the top 5 hotels in the world. Nicest place. They give you whatever you want!

If you meant "laied" with the flowers then please accept my humble apologies. I will now bow my head in shame and continue on in my ignorant ways. I just figured...well we know what I figured. Guess I was fantasizing or something.

Hawaiian airlines is great, the food is great, their planes are generally fairly clean and all their employees are very very friendly. By the way to that Powers dude, did you say all leather seats? I flew interisland on Hawaiian and only the first class seats were leather, they didnt give any lei's and the service was having the flight attendants run down the aisles once to give a small thing of really good juice and running back up to take the cups back. Dont expect much on interisland flights but the mainland flights are excellent. Also it is hard to say what plane you are flying (AA DC-10-10, AA DC-10-30, or a CO DC-10-30). If you get lucky you will get one of the AA DC-10-30's which are the Renaissance Cruises ones, the seats are far far less cramped than the DC-10-10 and CO DC-10-30's. By the way, I flew around Christmas time and it was real nice cause during boarding and deplaning on both flights they played some nice Hawaiian Christmas music and had some kinda Hawaii stuff playing on the screens. It was really good value for the price paid, $382 LAX-HNL roundtrip.

I flew Hawaiian on a DC-10 from LAX-OGG about a year ago. It was pkay. The aircraft was older. Howver, I like the DC-10. Most of them are former AA planes. The food was the worst food I have ever had in my life (much worse than normal airline food). Otherwise it was fine. I liked their entertainment. They are the main airline in Hawaii so you maswell take them.

Instead of flying HA's old AA burner 10's, consider Aloha out of OAK. 737-700. ETOPS Special. The fare's probably comparable too.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

You are joking right?

Why in the hell would someone want to pile into a small single-aisle twin, when you could fly a luxurious widebody like Hawaiian DC-10s or United 747-200?

737s are Okay for 1-2 hour flights, but for 6-hours across the Pacific Ocean?
No way!

Agree...

Just a little early morning humor. The last time I did HNL, I was on a UA free tix. about a year ago. Although in first, I has to ride a 757 r/t LAX-HNL-LAX. It pretty much stunk. I much prefer upstairs on UA's 744!

MaxPowers,

If the seats were all leather, you were on Aloha interisland flight, not Hawaiian. Though I don't recall either carrier giving out lei's. Perhaps you're thinking of the Pleasant Hawaiian Holidays flights, which are operated by American Trans Air, not Hawaiian Airlines.

With regards to Aloha out of Oakland (and Orange County starting May 1), in my experience sometimes they're more expensive than Hawaiian and the other airlines out of LAX and SFO, sometimes less.

Hey,RealHigh.
There are no more United 747 flights from the mainland to the Hawaiian Islands. Only 757/767/777's. Also no more DC-10's from ORD  Sad
Here is a pic from the good old days.......

I have flown this route several times, as well as PDX-HNL and SFO-HNL. Most of my flights have been superb. The f/a go beyond the call of duty to extend "Aloha" to you. The West bound flights are usually better than East bound flights, perhaps the crew members are happy to return home. From the minute you board the plane, you feel you are welcomed. The food was good. The f/a kept coming up and down passing out drinks. The planes, though old, are well kept.
