Kilauea Volcano is part of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and is one of the island’s most popular attractions. Located on the southeastern coast of the Big Island, it is about 89 km away from Kona Airport. If you need a connecting flight from one of the other islands, then consider flying into Hilo International Airport (ITO) which is only about 43 km away from Kilauea.
Molokai is a small island sandwiched between Maui and Oahu, and is therefore accessible from either Honolulu Airport or Kahului Airport. From Honolulu Airport you can fly with the regional carrier Hawaiian Air across to Molokai Airport (MKK). Alternatively, you can also get a connecting flight out of Kahului Airport, going directly to Molokai Airport.

Pros: "Only one lady on the crew was working so hard and very nice. She was doing everything the other lady who was a bit younger did nothing but walk up and down the isle. If it was up to the younger lady the people who have suffered."
Cons: "Plane is old and noisy, the first class was something from the 90’s I have flow premium economy on other airlines which was better."
Cons: "Missed 2nd leg of flight due to 1st leg not taking off at correct time due to improper scheduling on Alaska’s part at SeaTac airport.

Cons: "What food? Alaska Airlines doesn't feed the cattle. Even the Salmon I brought back, one was semi frozen, expected that... The other was not frozen at all??? What's up with that??? Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."

Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"

Pros: "N/A. Because of bad weather on Vancouver Island, my flight to Vancouver was delayed two hours and I missed my 230p flight to Seattle. Alaska had no other flights available from Vancouver that would get me to San Diego and other later flights that day from other airlines were over booked. I stayed the night and flew out the next morning on a direct flight to San Diego. The flight was fine. The flight crew was nice, they offered us drinks and snacks and the air condition worked. The reason I included the AC is sometimes it doesn't work and that's miserable. There's not too much else to add."

Pros: "charging outlet"
Cons: "light delay. no service."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."

They booked the passenger in the next flight 9 hours after. They did not provide any food nor hotel so passenger to stay at the airport. My guess, they overbooked the flight as they always do, this trip was for my son (20) traveling by himself for the first time, they took advantage of his inexperience; this is is my 3rd bad experience with Avianca and definitely the last one!"

Cons: "Big problem was with several hundreds travelers to Bogota, Sao Paulo for 23:10~40. Avianca accounts don't have any classification to avoid this type disorders problem. Had waited my bag on the band during 1 hour. But, wasn't arrived various travelers bag from new york."

Cons: "El avion no era internacional, sin embargo, era por las huelgas de los pilotos."

Pros: "Truthfully, nothing."
Cons: "Get attendants that speak English on a flight to LAX and who do their job. It was impossible trying to get water. Not sure what the delay was once we landed, but it's nearly 1 hour later and we are still on the plane and the doors aren't open. We are thirsty, especially considering we couldn't get water while on the flight. Will never fly avianca again."
Pros: "I liked that we got food."
Pros: "Checkin was slow and Kate but after that the service, airplane condition, schedule, and baggage handling was excellent"

Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."
Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"

Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."
Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"

Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."

Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "Short and nice flight"

Pros: "The entertainment is good; several new movies"
Cons: "The dirty seats, the awful food and wine"

Pros: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"

Pros: "I got bumped from the flight. They overbooked. Three people were let on after me."
Cons: "There was a problem with their system, so they didn’t have a record of my checking -in. But, my email said I had checked in - just wouldn’t give me a seat number. They put me up in an old hotel that I would not recommend, so I can fly tomorrow."
Pros: "Crew was amazing comfort was horrible. My seat was un front of emergency exit and could recline, I was traveling with children"

Pros: "on time, good seats and leg space"
Cons: "I wish Copa has more flights in US"

Cons: "Air flight attendant was rude and Had an attitude with some passengers"

Pros: "Our flight got delayed due to freezing rain. The crew was so friendly and accomodating and answered any questions passengers had about the flight. Agents were waiting for us to further accommodate passengers with missed connecting flights. The process was so easy and effortless. Thank you Copa!!"
Cons: "One of my best travel experiences!"
Pros: "Boarding was in Spanish - thankfully I recognized the number of our boarding group. Everything was average - what you’d expect on a normal flight. But for breakfast, one of the options was eggs. I expected something barely edible, but it was actually really tasty!"
Cons: "That boarding was all in Spsnish"
Cons: "Not very flexible in fixing problems and adjustment fees are outrageous."
Pros: "Panama uses American dollars so no need to get extra cash to use during layover. The flights are always quick out of Panama."

Cons: "No a decent diner served"
Pros: "The short stops"
Cons: "Delay en our flight"
Cons: "Crew member gave me a hard time for requesting the special meal I had reserved before even checking to see if I had one reserved. I did have a special meal reserved and on board. When the stewardess delivered the meal, she did not have even a smile, much less an apology. Find a job where you needn't interact with paying clients!"
Cons: "custumer service"
Cons: "Purchased a window seat, confirmed over the phone, then arrived to the airport and was moved to a middle seat for a 6.5 hour flight. You try to talk to the crew but they really do not care. Choose any other airline but this one"
Pros: "One of our group members had a bad reaction to a medication, and the staff could not have been more helpful or sympathetic. I was really impressed with the staff in general and the planes are very comfortable."
Cons: "They would pass out headsets, but then not start the movie, or not start it until it was too late to see the ending."
Pros: "I was bumped from an overbooked Copa flight and was offered another that would get me home at 1am (rather than 3pm) or an overnight stay and a flight the next morning. Instead of trying to find a way home from the airport (a 1+ hour ride) in the middle of the night, I opted to stay in Panama overnight. Copa put me up in a very nice Sheraton in downtown Panama City with a pool, several restaurants, a casino... They gave me $20 per meal I'd be staying for (lunch, dinner, and the following breakfast), arranged a shuttle to and from the airport, and, the best part, a $1000 voucher for future flights with Copa within the next year - enough for two more round trip flights."
Cons: "Communication was minimal or false. When I checked my bag, the agent told me that I was being placed on standby because of a weight limit on the plane. She assured me that the flight wasn't full and that I would absolutely get a seat. When I got to the gate, there was minimal information available, but about 12-15 people were on standby, including two families of 4 and 5 people. The agents were ill-informed and didn't immediately explain why so many of us were on standby and whether anyone would make it on the plane, or what the other options were for those who wouldn't make it on the plane. Eventually four or five people boarded, another few got moved to a later flight, and 6 including me were put up in a hotel. Betzy, a gate agent for Copa at Tocumen, was absolutely wonderful and so helpful and informative with all of this."
Pros: "Extra seating, leg room"
Cons: "We've had better crew consideration with other airlines"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked had to stay an extra day and take a night flight. Very disappointed"
Cons: "Seats too uncomfortable"
Cons: "They asked for me to prove I was a resident of Argentina to travel there ( that is NOT a requirement) My italian passport clearly states that I am a resident of Argentina, with an Italian passport. On my way to Mexico they required that I show proof that I had a flight leaving Mexico. I did, on another airline, and I couldn't access my email to prove it so they would not let me board the flight., Again there is NO requirement to prove my returning flight, I had to pay a change fee to board the flight the following day, I lost a day of my vacation, because of the airline requirements THAT NO OTHER AIRLINE requires."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant and competent. The flight was only one hour duration, but they still managed to serve a small meal and refreshments. Would definitely use again"
Cons: "Rude personnel at the gate"
Pros: "The food and free movies."
Pros: "On the way to my destination on May 28th, both Copa flights were great--the service, the staff, the food."
Cons: "On my return flight with Copa from Montevideo to Panama City the cabin temperature was 16 C (checked with staff, and they did not turn the temperature up). No blankets were provided on this overnight flight. It was incredibly cold."
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"
Pros: "Smooth process, nice plane, amicable staff"
Pros: "West Jet was well organized and very professional in helping travellers on a full aircraft reach Hobolulu. I was particularly impressed by the polite calm and efficient cabin staff. Will use this airline again."
Pros: "price efficiency"
Cons: "gate change last minute"
Cons: "Way too cramped. Only 1 washroom."
Cons: "Because of the discounted fare I was placed in rear seating at the very back of the plane and to change seats was to cost me $14"
Cons: "Booked our seats 24 hours in advance and could not get seats together. Airline expects us to pay extra for reasonable expectations as that"
Pros: "The crew were so kind and friendly. Kept the spirit upbeat and served us well. The bulkhead was roomy enough for carry on bags, so they weren’t taken away from us to be checked, which happened to us on the same flight last year with another Canadian airline."
Cons: "I do miss personal screens in seats, although I understand it’s not really necessary anymore. If there were a ledge or place in seats to accommodate personal devices for better viewing, that would b amazing. No more neck cricks."
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "Talia is an excellent stewardess—She takes good care of people"
Cons: "Woman in seat beside should have taken 2 seats"
Pros: "Flight crew very attentive."

Cons: "There was a sick lady and she wouldn't stop coughing. That was gross"
Pros: "The crew."

Pros: "I just love WestJet"
Pros: "The staff are super friendly. The prices are good and the travel times and locations are convenient and what we were looking for."
Cons: "Checking in was a bit of a pain - there was a WJ staffer helping us with the self serve kiosk. She obviously didn't know how to use it, and just hit the continue button and kept asking us to fill in the personal information on the screens. It was funny to laugh at afterwards but not at the time."
Pros: "I like that there was no delay"
Cons: "Food service and having to pay for checked baggage"
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "Order ahead food was easy and selection was tasty"
Cons: "Bring a book! Apps to have your entertainment on individual devices is a bad idea."
Cons: "We left late and had a very hard landing"

Cons: "You have to pay for a meal even though it’s a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Not cold, not noisy aircraft"
Cons: "It took an hour and a half for the flight attendant to reach the fifth row to offer refreshment an then announced they had run out of red wine. Apparently she failed to check the stock before departure."
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Cons: "To the best of my knowledge I paid for a window seat on my trip to Montreal. It was the only option I elected to pay for, yet, I found myself in the middle seat. A personal life lesson we’ll learned and an experience to be remembered & considered, under advisement, on any future bookings."
Pros: "The Pilot explained his Procedures thoroughly."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "Being late into LA"
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it."
Cons: "No choice for seating - my husband and I were seated separately"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Typical stuff, Cramped space, crappy food"
Pros: "Smooth, friendly and cost effective."
Cons: "No entertain system"
Cons: "1+ hour before we took off after getting on the plane. 1+ hour before we got off the plane after landing."
Cons: "Didn't know I needed to download Westjet app before the flight and bring my own device"
Pros: "Food, attendants, comfort, entertainment"

Cons: "Paying for food and alcohol was a bit of a downer."
Cons: "West Jet personnel did not give any information about the customs process for connecting flights that I would face in Vancouver or the requirement to go through another security check between West Jet flights. I was told that I should simply go to the next gate to board the plane for Los Angeles -- and that I would do customs in the USA - so the info person sent me to retrieve my luggage (wrong info) and I ended with a 45 minutes anxious trek through the Vancouver airport! Once I found my gate, the West Jet personnel could not have been more kind."
Cons: "It was a little warm and stuffy while loading."
Cons: "cabin was too hot"
Pros: "Drinks and snacks several times! Lots of movies!"
Cons: "Smaller seating area on this plane"
