My husband and I travel to Kauai at least twice per year, and it is consistently on AK Airlines. The flights are smooth and uneventful (meaning excellent), and typically on time with no lost luggage. They also guarantee quick baggage turnaround. We each have an AK Airlines credit card, and make full use of the companion fares and the complimentary checked bags. We also use the cards when travelling internationally because there are no foreign currency fees.
