  1. Yes this was the day we were part of that mess. 20 minute gate delay arriving at HON from LIH. Passenger stood up and screamed at me. Don’t know why. Gate agent and baggage handling issues. The LAX bound Hawaiian flight was delayed 5 hours by those things and runway construction.

  2. We always flown Hawaiian Flight 20 & are still preferred company. knew upon entry to airport baggage was broken making it difficulty to navigate to security. board on time at 1200, then approx 90 min notice of baggage delay waited longer nearly 3.5 to 4 hours at the gate, upon taxing to runway I hear grinding from right wheel, messaged daughter & spoke up to those around me like “your hear that” ? up at the runway then plane takes sideroad informed not enough gas need to refuel. Another 90 min delay, passengers hangery they let us off 20 in terminal. Reboard people stressed start argue with staff get kicked off, police, one passenger panic attack I intervened as RN assist her safe off plane, need better way to manage & compensate 5.5 delay

  3. My husband and I had a wonderful flight back on Hawaiian airlines flight HA 64 from Kauai to LAX. The flight crew were all wonderful, very helpful and accommadating. We had a very safe flight. So sorry to hear a bout delays of other flights.

  4. We experienced flight delays from seattle to Maui on Wednesday.
    We were 2 people also effected by the delays from Maui to Oahu on wednesday. It was crazy. People everywhere..flight delayed x2. Then have to wait 30 minutes to take off waiting in back up.
    Total 2 hours late. Gate workers were so confused. Can we have a refund ? Lol

  5. Aloha, how many of these delays were less than 30 min delays? Also what was the arrival time to destination? Sometimes you can depart late and still be on time or early depending on the cushion that’s put into the block time, (gate to gate).

    1. Oh I forgot to add that there are maintenance delays that can’t be helped as well as ATC delays into places like SFO due to weather. Some people wonder about why being delayed for weather when they see clear sky’s at their departure airport but the weather at their destination is a mess or below the instrument landing minimums, so that’s why it’s better to wait it out till it passes. (Another ATC delay). There’s so many factors in why a delay occurs.

  6. Our flight from HNL to SMF on 10/27 was delayed because the plane we needed from Kona was not allowed to take off to Honolulu for an hour.
