Pros: "no -all that was amazing was the complete idiocy of ana"
Cons: "virtually everything was a unacceptable starting with the gate staff ..."

Cons: "Old man next to me couldn’t keep his arm on his side."

Pros: "Friendly staff, fast service, and good food."

Pros: "Crew members was very polite and food was good"
Cons: "seat is quite small."

Pros: "The Japanese food was fantastic - individual Japanese food selections which I wondered if would be good turned out totally amazing - well done!"

Cons: "Salad and fruit came Frozen"

Pros: "The seat was nice"
Cons: "Service was extremely slow, it took almost two hours just to get offered a drink. There wasn't any offering after boarding and I had to ask just to get water. The food was quite bad, normally I would choose the Japanese meal, however, both the Japanese and International options were poor. The staff seemed unorganized and did not follow a set protocol."

Pros: "It was alright."
Cons: "Prepare to wake up with neck pain."

Pros: "The entertainment touch screen didn't work at first, but mentioned it to a crew, it was rebooted right away and worked fine after all. Thank you."

Cons: "very average"

Pros: "The crews on ANA (Flight Attendants) are the hardest working, most polite and service oriented of ANY carrier I can remember. When the cabin lights are ON, the crew is hustling to keep the passengers occupied and chewing. Free Beer, Wine and mixed drinks in Coach! Every Service - Snack, Drinks, Lunch, Dinner, Coffee/Tea, Second and Third rounds of drinks includes a cold towel to wipe your face and hands and most important, trash is collected promptly EVERY single time. WOW. I noticed that Flight Attendants take notes on sleeping passengers for every major meal service, and they take the time to revisit those customers when awake to check they might have wanted to be fed. I also noticed that the crew has special double sided tape to pickup crumbs and spills in the aisles so grime is not tracked into the carpet. Dont be surprized to see a flight attendant cruising the aisle after dinner with a soft cooler full of small vanilla Hagen Daz cups..."
Cons: "We flew from Bangkok to Washington Dulles with a connection in Tokyo. Snow in Japan caused crew shifts to max out and ultimately a dramatic change in flight departure. (Guaranteeing a missed connection) This caused multiple downstream challenges. 1. Original flight was scheduled for 00:30. (Half Past Midnight), rescheduled flight was scheduled for 12:30 (Half Past Noon) For Americans unused to a 24 hour clock, this made emails From ANA very difficult to wrap your mind around. Was it a typo? What happens when you miss your connection? (Turns out weather delays do NOT result in accommodations or meals being provided) Rescheduled flight should have been for 1231 with (AM/PM in Parentheses) 2. For passengers who spent their vacation/trip near the equator, the prospect of spending the night in snowbound Tokyo was simply not addressed in the cancellation email. The better option was to stay in your original point of origin and make the connection in one day, but email has NO telephone number for passengers to call to make these arrangements. (We ended up calling a toll California telephone number to be sure we got an English speaking agent) 3. Many SE Asian departing cities have a crazy baggage weight policy that allows for Two bags of 25 Kilos each , but if you have a single bag that weights 32 Kilos, you must pay excess baggage. Although the policy may NOT be specific to ANA, there are hundreds of folks of all nationalities repacking suitcases on the floor of the airport, to try to meet the regulations. As a traveler I understand this, but as an ANA customer it makes no sense, especially when the ticket agent cannot charge the overage to a credit card at the ticket counter. Instead sending you to a different location then waiting for you to return with a receipt. Its a huge scam and ANA can do better communicating the rules to passengers via email or their web site. Nothing starts a long trip off worse than arguments over arcane rules. 4. Changing a return flight arrangement as a result of weather happens at the last moment, but seat assignments apparently could not keep up. I would rather NOT fly than face a center seat in coach for 14 hours. I cannot explain what happened, but repeated attempts at advance check in showed NO assigned seats available, the ticket and gate agents could not improve on this, but BOTH flights ended up having empty seats and in the end we stressed for nothing. ANA must be able to do better, improving their IT systems to make advance seat assignments possible no matter how challenging the problem of "equipment" and other changes in the face of a canceled flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "From communication on flight details to boarding to in-flight comfort, ANA rocked. The staff was so kind, seeing that we had what we needed. I didn't feel like a liability at all, and I think their approach to the work ensured a great flight experience for everyone."

Cons: "Very nice services"

Cons: "Nothing, everything was as expected"

Pros: "Seat"
Cons: "Food was a bit salty. Bread was so cold."

Cons: "Plane was hot and a lot of food but it wasn't very good."

Cons: "United did not allocate to code share flight on correct date. I was rufused to be on the board at the ticket counter and ANA code share company ask to call to united 1-800 #. I missed the flight and ended up buying one way ticket from other air line with my own expense."

Pros: "Clean cabin. Courteous and friendly attendants. Inflight amenities were excellent."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "2 inches more legroom in economy than other airlines on that route."

Pros: "Most all."

Pros: "On time, comfort, good food, good deal"

Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Not ok"

Pros: "Delightful service, comfortable seats, delicious food... what a treat! It was a pleasure to fly ANA and I look forward to doing so again."

Pros: "Great service, everyone was happy to do their job"

Cons: "Flight attendants didn't speak English; no amenities provided (toothbrush, eye kit, etc.) like Etihad and Qatar provide in economy. There weren't a lot of meal options. There should be double the movies and music offered given that you can go through all of the offerings in one or two legs of a trip. I had four. BBC news didn't work on any leg of the trip and the Japanese news was in Japanese only, no English."

Cons: "Sitting on the back rows , when I was served my food the lady said there was no more options I had to take what was left, meaning if I wanted the pasta I would Not get it because unfortunately I got a sit at the back of the airplane, but I paid the same amount of money for the ticket as the person sitting 20 rows in front of me It is outrageous"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nil"

Cons: "Way too cold"

They supply earbuds, socks, toothbrush and paste."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew members were very friendly n helpful."

Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."

Pros: "The plane had decent leg room, the food was great, service was excellent. I have no complaints. Snacks were handed out pretty regularly which was great. In flight entertainment was good too. I'll definitely fly Singapore again, I liked it better than other Asian airlines."

Pros: "Everything great personnel"

Pros: "Some of the Korean food was tasty The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"

Pros: "Both ways I had a whole row to myself, great attendants, in flight screens and charging stations at your seat, frequent meals"
Cons: "Clean bathroom trash more often"

Pros: "The flight attendants are professional, attentive, efficient. One suggestion, they didn't know to offer a nauseous passenger ginger ale. I let them know to give her some and she was very grateful. Also too much food! It's so much better than any other airline but very abundant and I feel bad when I only eat a small portion of the items on each tray. Otherwise great crew, plane, boarding, etc."

Pros: "Ice cream for snack? Heck YES. Variety of meals to choose from (i got hindu meal)"
Cons: "On the way to Korea, a stewardess keep taking my water away thinking i was done with it. It was very nice of her she tries to take trashes away, but it wasn't trash for me."

Cons: "All"

Pros: "Great food!!"

Pros: "Airline was great"
Cons: "The customer service at Airfair.com is abysmal. I will NEVER do business with them again."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Very small seats. For full flights they should use the double deck aircrafts. They are much more comfortable. I paid an expensive fair for an old plane which was unfair"

Pros: "They treat you very nicely on Singapore Airlines - from warm washcloths to wine with your meal. Seats are comfortable and the long flight not so wearing."
Cons: "My husband reacted to the spicy beef/rice dish served for breakfast."

Cons: "Same price as Singapore airlines but it's a budget flight - silk air"

Cons: "The crew members is not very detail oriented. Almost forgot to give our whole row of people without dinner. Don't they remember where they left off sheesh. I work at a hotel before and customer service all my life, I don't think I will make that mistake."

Pros: "Comfortable, nice staff"
Cons: "The entertainment options are a bit sparse on TV and games"

Pros: "Crews were attentive to elders."
Cons: "Food is mediocre."

Pros: "The crew did a great job making sure everyone was safe and comfortable."
Cons: "Be friendlier for pets flying in the cargo hold. Reducing the capacity from 20 to 5 per flight and regularly increasing the fees is not helpful at all."

Cons: "Have no recommendations...everything was great"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "WAS OK BUT NEED BETTER PILLOWS"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Food was fantastic, everyone was friendly, plane was clean and orderly."

Pros: "I loved the fact that once I got to Taipei I had a very short layover and back to SFO. Awesome"

Cons: "They did not ask me if I want food during the 12 hour flight. They just pass by me and did not give me food. The flight attendant could not speak English so they could not explain when I complained."

Pros: "Boarding process and take off was the most efficient - truly impressive! I don’t think this had anything to do with the airline, but every flight with them was so quiet (no crying babies/children, loud adult conversations), I thought I could hear the pin drop! Their safety demonstration was uniquely done by dancer, which made it interesting to watch every time! I left my jacket on one of my flights, but they returned it to me when I boarded the next flight - I was gratefully surprised! They had complementary tooth brush/toothpaste, ear plugs and eye masks in the restrooms. I thought this was a good way to reduce passing out items not all passengers wanted. I wish all airlines could copy these amazing features from them."
Cons: "Their meals were underwhelming- in four flights on my trip, they were basically the same main course. The rolls with margarine, same fruit and strongly cultural seasoned vegetables that were served every time, all of which I could not eat. I have liked every airline meals and hospital food, but their food was below institutional food quality. For an Asian airline, the flight attendants were rather crude in their speech and mannerisms. I could barely hear and understand the announcements in spite the fact that passengers were extremely quiet. Their choices of movies were very poor; it seemed that 3 out of 4 flights had similar options."

Pros: "The price. The staff was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Everything was good."

Pros: "NO。"
Cons: "NO!"

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Cons: "They didn’t have tv music videos like air canada"

Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "Food, not enough. Snack is not good."

Pros: "My trip to Houston to Manila on December 27,2018 is very inconvenient You have to wait in line to used the toilet becouse Two toilet is out of order . Again very inconvenient flight BR51 toilet between economy plus and economy two toilet is out off order"
Cons: "Make sure that all the toilet in every flight is in order or working condition so that we don't have to wait in line just to used it . It is not acceptable if two toilet is out of order."

Pros: "Hello Kitty themes"
Cons: "Coffee served diluted ."

Pros: "The crew was helpful we landed at Taipei was on time."
Cons: "My flight from Vancouver to Taipei was poor I'm not impressed with the menu the vegetables and chicken was half way cooked. I was sick after I eat the foods. My connecting flights was too long I was at Taipei for more than 18 hours. The company could have been provided a hotel. I was miserable at the airport. The EVA Air has excellent foods and good crew. The Air Canada could have been provided a better sets for families with childrens. I was sitting 39 A next to a window. There was a family a mom and two child was separated from there mom. The mother of two was upset that she was separated with her two little girls. I feel bad with the two little girls that their mom was sitting behind us. So, I decided to move where the mom was so that the mom and two little girls could sit together and the mom was very happy and Blessed."

Cons: "It took 1 hour for checking in in CDG 1 terminal. I missed the next light because of the delayed take off. And they change my ticket to Thai airways which is the fastest from Taipei to next destination."

Cons: "No clothes to change. My fruits were expired because off the luggages not come to the destination."

Pros: "People were lovely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats were pretty ordinary"

Pros: "The food and drink."
Cons: "Being asked by a precocious young flight attendant if I was drunk. Demeaning and condescending. Luckily this was not within earshot of other passengers. I don't normally require politeness, but I don't expect rudeness either."

Pros: "Was quite nice for a two hour flight. They gave us a free meal again."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like."

Pros: "Food is good"

Pros: "The flight attendants are very attentive and polite. The journey was smooth. Overall great experience!"

Cons: "Meal,"

Cons: "Food ia not that good. Need to have more flavor"

Pros: "The is nothing I can say I did not like with the Vancouver to Taipei Sector of our flight. I was impressed with the crew, the food, entertainment, seat space, leg room, etc..."
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. This was is our first experience with EVA Air. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad. The food was great! Both my wife and I like the dinner and the breakfast served. Also, the price of EVA Air’s Premium Economy is great compared to similar Asian Airlines from Vancouver to Manila. EVA Air was the cheapest when we started shopping for flights from Vancouver-Taipei-Manila."

Pros: "After having flown numerous airlines to Asian countries over the years, we are extremely happy to have found EVA Airlines. After flying EVA the last 5 round trips we are happy to say they are the #1 airline of choice. Actually, we will fly no other than EVA as they have the cleanest planes and the best of service from the check-in counter, thru the security and flight staff, all are the best and most devoted to assist you in any way needed along your trip. Professionalism and cleanliness matched only by their devotion to be the best"
Cons: "There is nothing to dislike about the airline or employees"

Pros: "Staff was extremely attentive and friendly"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "I have never sat in such terrible plane seats. First, there are FOUR seats but there are only THREE partitions at the bottom, meaning I had to share leg space and purse space with the stranger next to me. It's awkward enough sitting next to someone I don't know and having to worry about accidentally leaning on him when I fall asleep but having to constantly be in contact with his leg was very uncomfortable. I kind of got over it after awhile but I could tell the kid I was having leg time with was super uncomfortable since he would jerk his leg away every time it touched mine. Sorry to be harsh but I don't know how you're getting 9.0+ scores from the other customers. Yeah your flights are cheap but your seat options suck and the movies weren't good enough to make up for it. D+. You get what you pay for I suppose but your tix weren't that much different from the other more comfortable airlines."

Pros: "Good food. Lots of movie selections. I like the amenities in the bathroom."
Cons: "Less space. No socket to charge phone."

Pros: "Food was actually OK and the alcohol selection was good."
Cons: "I was in the last row aisle seat 73H. Prior to take off I requested to move to the opposite side 73 A and B because they were empty. I had a passenger on the window side and this particular FA said said OK, but she said to do it after the flight takes off. Later I took my things and this time another FA rudely said I cannot move because the empty seats were required for FA's to rest on this 14 hr flight. Fair enough. But not once did they sit at those empty seats at all. When I had to continually get up to allow my window passenger who frequently uses the toilet. Why lie?"

Cons: "Space beneath seat in front, where you put a backpack and such, was very, very small - smaller than other airlines"

Pros: "Quick boarding, felt like more leg room than usual, polite courteous staff, good movie selection."
Cons: "Food was good, but I've had better with other Asian airlines. They served me croissant with breakfast that was so dry, it crumbled all over my lap."

Pros: "I don't have kids, other people do. The attendants give each child a play package to keep them busy and bring out their food early to keep them from making a fuss. There's more than enough to keep adults busy; movies, games, shows, food"

Pros: "Good leg room and seats are comfortable. Food was better than most airplane food. Entertainment system was great as well!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were obnoxious about window shades. They could have come around with water a little more frequently as well."

Pros: "From phone customer service and ground staff to flight attendants, service is among the top. Accommodating requests for special seat. Also crew actively monitors the condition of the lavatories and keep them clean."
Cons: "The food is just ok. Compared to Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific, their food is less exciting. Very stingy with wine (half of a mini plastic cup and takes another round before refill). Those who are on carb free diet should make a special request prior to travel as their food is very heavy on carb and light on protein."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "No meal choice."

Pros: "Nice airplane! Loved the movie selections and the meals. Exceptional service!"

Pros: "Comfortable Elite Economy Seats. Most of the air stewardess was polite with smiles"
Cons: "Not all but some lack of big smiles or no smile at all particularly when press button for services. Also, slower response compared to SQ where all air stewardess was prompt with great smiles. Main course was somehow better in quality for example beef chunk rather than thin slices. Overall, very comfortable ride."

Pros: "The Crew was good but I think that they are not allowed to give any drinks, food or water or wine They need to improve their services"
Cons: "Food and drinks were not good at all and not enough They need to improve that"

Pros: "Staff is alright."
Cons: "Bad bad bad I book so 2 or 3 months early but I can't even choose my own seat in the front row. After my connection from taipei to Vietnam they don't even put me and my husband sit together."

Pros: "There was nothing good about this experience. Management at the highest levels made decisions that showed gross inattention to the wellbeing of passengers and crews."
Cons: "My wife and I were scheduled to fly out of Taipei on the day a major typhoon made a direct hit on Taiwan. Taipei was shut down, offices and shops were closed, residents were sheltering at home, and other carriers had cancelled essentially all flights during the 10 hours when the storm was projected to be over the island and had posted long delays (of 8 and 10 hours and longer) on their uncancelled flights. Only EVA stubbornly clung to the fiction that our flight and others would actually depart -- and depart on time. EVA's refusal to acknowledge reality -- and timely communicate that reality to its customers -- made planning impossible, stranding passengers at hotels without bookings, preventing contingency planning and forcing many passengers to make needless trips to the airport over treacherous roads made hazardous by heavy flooding, downed trees, blowing debris, high winds and blinding rain. EVA's decisions cost us money, inconvenience, time and anxiety. For the passengers and crews on inbound planes that EVA actually landed or tried to land in Taipei that day, the consequences were worse: head and other injuries from extreme turbulence and hard landings, and then hours on tarmacs unable to deplane because the winds were above the maximum level for the safe deployment of jetways. Getting out the next day with an upgrade to business class doesn't do it for me. I am a United 1K-Star Alliance Gold flyer. I fly a fair amount and I expect, above all else, an uncompromising focus on safety and clear, candid and timely communication. Never again EVA."

Cons: "No instructions for passengers who are in transit. Instructions on where to go would help. This could be done in the flight before we disembark and also at the exit gate."

Cons: "My son & I traveled together on a trip from Manila to USA in Taipei. We had a 3 hour transit time, and waited by the gate of the flight from Taipei to USA. To exercise, I left the gate and walked around the terminal. Coming back to the gate, I could not enter because the ground stewardess blocked the entrance to the gate. I had to wait for 30 minutes until I finally was able to sneak thru the rope barrier that was placed there after the stewardess left. Then when I was confronted again, I explained my situation and this time she let me through to join my son, who was at the gate all this time."

Pros: "Comfortable."
Cons: "Kids should be provided with kids meals and served ahead of other passengers if possible. More choices of food would be better."

Cons: "Need more choice in movies."

Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat I had booked and was confirrmed was not available, double booked."

Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"

Pros: "Easy flight."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was very cold so the cabin could have been warmer"

Pros: "Seat hard on older aircraft, needs new cushioning on seat"

Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"

Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."

Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"

Pros: "Entertainment was great, food was great, and the overall flight experience was better than the first time travelling this airline. Airhosts/esses we’re very polite as well. Would try it again soon!"
Cons: "Airhosts/esses took a long time to pick up our trays after our meal."

Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."

Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"

Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"

Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"

Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"

Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"

Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"

Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"

Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."

Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."

Pros: "Friendly prompt service!"

Pros: "Flight good. Plane modern model with good entertainment system. Flight crew good."
Cons: "Check in automated systems referring most checking to supervisors. No manual system so supervisors overwhelmed. Chambolic 2 hours."

Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"

Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."

Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."

Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"

Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."

Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."

Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."

Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."

Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."

Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."

Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"

Pros: "No complaints at all"

Pros: "The flight crew was great. They keep teverything movies ng and were polite and happy throughout the flight we will definately fly them again!!"

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"

Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."

Cons: "Using a 777 meant longer check in time and was much longer arrival time and baggage collection. Meant I was stuck in Auckland traffic because of the extra time"

Pros: "Air New Zealand staff are very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are the most uncomfortable and tight I have ever experienced on an international flight, and we were in exit row seats. For a 15 hour flight, it was miserable."

Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."

Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and crew was great"

Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and confusing."

Pros: "Vegetarian food"
Cons: "If you provide blankets"

Pros: "Easy transit. Plesant crew."
Cons: "Not much to add for an economy flight!"

Pros: "Fast and easy"

Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"

Pros: "Great entertainment, great seating and space comfort. Overall a great experience. But, Etihad airways is still better than Emirates."
Cons: "Longer wait for boarding. The assigned zones were the last possible ones. Zone F or something similar. Flight attendants were okay, cared less for economy class. Also, Bluetooth headphones pairing did not work."

Cons: "Ahmedabad is the worst of Indian international airports. Emirates can't manage that zoo."

Pros: "the seats, the window"
Cons: "fliglth to short"

Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"

Pros: "The servoce was as usual very good."
Cons: "Hardly anything to criticise in relatively short journey."

Pros: "Xcellent"

Pros: "ICE Rock solid, at least from SFO-DXB and vice version and its variation in different movies, songs"
Cons: "Food -- Really bad food for me from SFo-DXB. Extra salt and for a person who does not eat rice/desserts poor choice. Is there some other choice for me(vegetarian). Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."

Pros: "The boarding and immigration process was smooth and trouble free"
Cons: "Leg space was inadequate for an international flight."

Cons: "Ec`1``"

Pros: "Service is very excellent."

Pros: "Delayed my first flight and I missed all my connecting flights and put me on another flight 12 hrs late"
Cons: "S"

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"

Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "I ordered regular vegetarian meal and they served me Vegan meal! Also my flight from Chicago to Dubai on January 30 they didn’t offer me vegetarian meal coz they said I Didn’t select meal and they said they didn’t have extra Vegetarian meal!"

Cons: "Service crew"

Pros: "Liked the Legroom in the Aircraft. Very roomy and nice Recline Chair. Food was O.K."

Pros: "Crewman friendly service and try to betas much as they can"
Cons: "My tickets say 1 stop in Dubai. However, I had 2 stop going and coming back. I had a stop at Athens For 90 minuets and then Dubai before I reached to my final destination. Also, going my audio was not working for Newark to Athens and Athens to Dubai. However it was working from Dubai to Ahmedabad. Also coming back they give me very hard time for my Camera bag. Somehow it’s free to fly from USA but you have to pay for the weight of camare coming back."

Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seats in economy and the flight, in general, are on par with the average airline—nothing special. Also, unless you're into Bollywood movies, the entertainment selection is sparse compared to other international flights. And the touch screen is in need of re-calibration."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late, then we sat on the plane for another half hour because people were in the wrong seat"
