I flew AA to Honolulu, HI from Los Angeles on their first flight of the day. It is a little brutal getting up so early to be at the airport before sunrise, but definitely worth the extra effort. Checking in my prepaid luggage was a breeze at the check-in counter and boarding the plane was organized and also simple. The flight attendants were so friendly and were quite attentive. I'm glad I had a good experience with this flight as well as the return one on the same airline.
