Pros: "Hasn’t occurred yet"
Cons: "Hasn’t occurred yet"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: ":)"

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. With decent leg room and nice seats. The in flight entertainment was excellent. As was the crews efficient and professional service. Top star"

Pros: "As I was in premium economy it was of course amazing, however it was a very packed premium compared to my previous experience so wasn’t as comfortable but still amazing."
Cons: "The selection of movies currently was a bit lacking."

Cons: "It ran a bit late"

Cons: "It was over $450 to try and change the short segment fligt from Christchurch to Auckland. I could have bought a new ticket for 1/2"

Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and made you feel special. The food was great! The burger was tremendous! The films very up to date."
Cons: "The seat is comfortable but doesnt recline enough, I dont like the fact that you need to flip the seat to get it flat, when is it flat its rock hard! Good on AirNZ for providing the foam mattress topper it helps. ButOnce its flat you cant really watch TV."

Pros: "I had to us the wheel chair And they were all GREAT I was by my self"
Cons: "Right now I can't think of any thing"

Pros: "Small puddle jumper, but everything was well organized."

Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"

Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"

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

Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."

Pros: "Smooth flight. Crews' sense of humour"
Cons: "A bit of delay in take-off schedule"

Cons: "My ticket did not say that it was a no luggage,no meal ticket & I printed off the E ticket & no where on the E ticket did it state no luggage.....I think that needs to be shown clearly when we book. I had to pay for 1 bag & it would have been $250 but ANZ did work with me &changed the ticket for $125 name-Marjorie Kalama"

Pros: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"

Pros: "Plz could u guys add Korean subtitle to movie or tv . Because when i was boarding, i couldn't find any Korean subtitle. I can understand English so that's find. But it let me think u guys don't really care Korean market ."

Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."

Pros: "there were extra blankets."
Cons: "Cold air blasting for 8 hours."

Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "the entertainment options."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the seat and surrounding area around the seat. Limited snacks. Inconsistent boarding."

Cons: "Cancellled"

Pros: "Nothing. I wasn't able to board the flight, so I wouldn't know."
Cons: "The staff from Air NZ made me lose my flight, keeping me doing queue after queue to pay for a piece of luggage that (apparently) was not included in a $350 fare. They wanted me to pay between $160 and $200 for putting a backpack in the plane!! Pay for almost another flight entirely! While I was going through the queues, the check in time ran out and, by the time I got to talk to someone at the desk to pay for the bag, the woman told me the plane didn't accept any more passengers... while I was still trying to get someone from the airline to help me! ONE HOUR BEFORE DEPARTURE. The plane was supposed to departure at 8:15 and I was still there at 7:15 trying to send my backpack to the cargo area...the solution? Re-book the flight, make me pay $185 in penalties and fees, plus $160-$200 for luggage and the difference of price when booking another flight."

Pros: "Consistent quality experience. Friendly staff. Good food. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Headphone socket was crackly with the supplied headphones."

Cons: "Way cramped"

Pros: "The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi"
Cons: "Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member"

Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable & I loved the flexible head rest. The food was good. The flight attendant were friendly & attentive. It was my first time flying Qantas & it is my new favorite airline!"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"

Pros: "Helpful staff, well informed"

Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."

Pros: "Pillow and blanket made the trip much for comfortable"

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."

Pros: "The fresh fruit platter choice for breakfast"
Cons: "No fresh towels to wash hands & face before being served food"

Pros: "Entertainment for the kids Healthy food The crew were great and interactive"
Cons: "Too much pressure for the ears"

Cons: "Qantas mucked up my seating and then tried to tell me maybe it was just my use of the booking system."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"

Pros: "Friendly crew Comfy space Reasonable food Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Would have liked to be offered a second hot drink or would like the cups to be a bit bigger. Fresh food"

Pros: "Overall good flight and staff nice and friendly"

Cons: "An hour late"

Pros: "Great entertainment and new release movies. Food was great"
Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"

Cons: "There is nothing that I dislike."

Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I was not able to board the plane and was told that I needed to apply for ETA. I did and was not able to do it online. Then I needed to call the embassy about a required visa as a visitor. None of this was presented before. I have not traveled to Australia before, so I had no idea this needed to be done. As of now I am still at home trying to find a solution to this requirement."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were wonderful 5 stars."
Cons: "Food soggy. Legroom is my biggest bug bear. Really appalling."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and lots of entertainment choices on the flight"
Cons: "I checked the flight prior to going to Auckland airport and all showed on time, by the time we cleared immigration and were in the airport we were notified of a six hour delay due to mechanical issues. I realize these things happen, but earlier notification would have prevented an 8 hour stay in the airport. The seats are pretty close together for a 3.5 hour flight. After hearing a lot of positive comments about Qantas, this was not a great first impression"

Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."

Cons: "2 hours late leaving"

Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."

Pros: "Thoughtful and friendliness of the Crews"
Cons: "None that i can think of"

Pros: "Arriving back in Australia"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late because there was a passenger on board sick they should never of been allowed to board the plane. This was very badly managed by the staff on the ground staff. Very poor leg room the rude passenger in the seats in front of us reclined right from take off to landing wa very hard to get out of our seat to stretch or go to the bathroom"

Pros: "the staff were exceptional. I was in a bright area trying to sleep. I had my beanie pulled over my eyes. the staff asked if they could suspend a blanket above my head between the two seats to shield the light."
Cons: "nothing, they were wonderful, on both flights."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were really good"

Pros: "We like the plane,seats and crew was excellent."

Pros: "There was an empty seat next to mine and that made the trip bearable!"
Cons: "More comfortable seats and ample food selection (especially for snacks)."

Pros: "The crew was amazing in business class - very friendly and helpful. Best flight I've ever been on!!"
Cons: "There was no wifi on the plane but I know LATAM is working on getting that. Other than that, it was perfect."

Cons: "Flying on schedule"

Pros: "My three LATAM flights were all on-time, well-piloted and efficiently run. They are not responsible for airport-related issues in Lima. Taking off at over 11.00 feet and landing at sea level must be like having most of the air leak out of your tires while driving, but these guys take that in stride."
Cons: "Gate assignments in Lima tend to change and be posted late, but this is not under LATAM control."

Pros: "The inflight crew was nice."
Cons: "I hate checking in with LATAM! I swear they make up new bag rules for every person that walks up. There were people with 2 carry ones, purses, and shopping bags. But I couldn't bring 2 backpacks(school backpacks!) on. I had to check one. I HATE LATAM! Every time it is something different with them."

Pros: "Friendly crew and average seats."
Cons: "Would love to see a usb port at the seat like they have on some Avianca flights."

Pros: "The flight was on time & smooth"
Cons: "Lots of kids yelling & some crying. Not something the airline can do anything about."

Pros: "The crew really was amazing and very kind"
Cons: "The boarding was too slow and it delayed the departure"

Cons: "No choice in food and very little provided. Half a sandwich with stale bread for breakfast"

Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent Business class seating quite roomy"
Cons: "Food was ok but not to the standards of Qantas / Emirates or Etihad The cabin seating etc, looked a little tired & dated & the seats mechanical operation was clunky. Toiletries bag provided was quite limited, but was fit for purpose."

Cons: "Delay meant I missed a meeting deadline."

Pros: "We are an American Family. We traveled on LATAM Sydney to Auckland round trip. The plane was brand new Boeing Dreamliner 787-8 with all the bells and whistles. The attendants who are Spanish speakers but bilingual were delightful. We had one meal on each flight and 2 rounds of drinks. We had no issues with carry on or checked luggage. To summarize we had 2 perfect on-time flights with no fuss or drama. I couldn't recommend them more even if I tried.."

Pros: "The comfort of the new Sears at economy-a class"

Pros: "Muy amable la tripuñacion"
Cons: "El abordaje fue algo lento y desordenado."

Pros: "On time flight & very nice service."

Pros: "Comfortable and sufficient entertainment."
Cons: "The food wasn’t spectacular."

Pros: "I enjoyed Everything except the layover"
Cons: "My 3 Hour layover was extended to Nine hours. The Peruvian airport offered me a hotel room i turned down. Peruvian gentleman on the plane just prior to landing was telling me how dangerous it is in Peru in the area surrounding the airport. I was given four hours of wifi coupons and coupons to a breakfast and lunch at a restaurant by our gate, where i was waited on poorly. Next time i may look for a layover in Florida."

Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Far too tight seating for an international long haul flight. Every airline decides how many rows to pack into their jets. LATAM packed this plane so tight you are wedges into the seat with hardly any space to get comfortable."

Pros: "Dreamliners are absolutely awesome. I felt refreshed when I landed. Smooth flight, awesome crew."

Pros: "Having to download an app to have access to the entertainment was a big inconvenience."

Pros: "crew! just awesome"

Pros: "Great short flight and they got us to Santiago early since everyone was at the gate"
Cons: "They changed my seat without notice nor great explanation."

Pros: "Personal on board is always great in LATAM"
Cons: "Personal at gate always suckin LATAM They lie in order to push their policies"

Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time"

Cons: "One of the orlando airport Imigration building was underwater. There was a broken pipe. They have to take us to the others Imigration building where we have to wait for suitecases together with 4 other flights. All that summed up to about 4 hours. Lost connection NO personal of Latam was there to help out. Had to buy another ticket."

Pros: "Flight on time, friendly staff, in flight entertainment, good food. Highly recommend this airline."

Pros: "The stewardesses were great. Great service. Both trips we thought the service was the best we have seen."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Same"

Pros: "Great airline"

Pros: "loved it"

Pros: "The LATAN costumee service was very kind and professional."
Cons: "I went to Argentina to spend 4 days with my family, wich I didn't see for 2 years. I arrived to Mendoza. I wait until the last suitcase shows. Any of my suitcases arrived. I spent another hour making the complain. I had to come back to the airport in the evening and spent another hour for my baggages. Unfortunate i waist my first day in the airport and only spent 3 days with my family. Also the day that I had to return to USA the LATAN fly was late 1 and a half hour."

Pros: "Entertainement system, lightening system."
Cons: "Breakfast could be improved"

Pros: "The crew on this particular flight was friendly and attentive. The food was very good."
Cons: "The plane was not clean at all. Mine and my friend's seatbelts both had chewed gum stuck on them which we had to cover with some plastic wrap to keep it from getting on our clothing. Our tray tables were disgusting. It looked like someone had spilled food all over them and no one ever cleaned it, so we had to clean the tables ourselves."

Pros: "Crew Was nice"
Cons: "Not in time. No entertainment on flight"

Pros: "on time, clean aircraft, efficient crew."
Cons: "Changed departure gate not announced. Auckland gate signs misleading."

Pros: "boarding has been delayed however there is poor communication between the staff regarding estimated of delay..."

Pros: "Quick and comfortable. Arrived 30 mins ahead of schedule"

Pros: "The price, the timing of the flights"
Cons: "Cheap thin seats squashed together means you can feel every time the person behind you moves. There were people yelling at each other because they were getting so annoyed by it."

Pros: "on time in time clean air craft great crew, on top of all was the experience of the Pilot, the take off and landing was so smooth"

Cons: "$120 bag fee!! Plane was late. Ticket line took over an hour. Paying bag fee was a separate line took one-half hour. Gate was changed had to move 1/4 mile."

Pros: "got to melbourne on time"
Cons: "extra fees for everything and a hassle with carry-on. $150.00 for 2 checked bags."

Pros: "The trip was seamless for the most part."
Cons: "The jet star staff at the Auckland airport were rude when checking me and my bag in. Also both the domestic and international Auckland airports are awful."

Pros: "Seat in the front"
Cons: "First and early used Auto kiosks check in Auckland Domestic Airport, the Jetstar computer get me a last seats on the flight!?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Check I'm rudeness...... absolutely despised employee"

Cons: "Seats unusually small. Unlikely to fly this airline again"

Cons: "Impossible to sleep"

Pros: "Ease of boarding n checking in."
Cons: "Took awhile before we found out the gate. Not ur fault but too many crying babies on flt"

Cons: "Jetstar is cheap and terrible. We were charged $160 dollars to check small, carry-on sized bags we had expected to take on board with us. This is 4 times the price on their website; that price is no longer available once you're at check-in. The service was slow and inefficient. Even after checking in online we still had to wait in line to check in at the counter. This took ages since at least 5 or 6 other people were having issues with Jetstar, like us. The flight itself was cramped (I'm a shorter woman and had almost no leg room) and there were no complimentary drinks or snacks for our 4 hour flight. We opted for Jetstar because it's the cheapest option, but ended up having to pay more than we would have for a much nicer flight with another airline."

Pros: "2 hours late"
Cons: "2 hours late, constant 20 min delays until departure no real updates"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The excess lugage policy"

Pros: "The check in team was very cordial. The pilot did a great job in landing the airplane in difficult weather conditions."

Pros: "I am traveling from the USA and I had heard some bad stories about JetStar but my experience was really good."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seats very narrow. Hot food not worth the fee."

Cons: "they charged $150 to check in a bag over 7 kg (15 lbs). the size of the bag was fine (20"), and if you fill such a bag with regular clothes, two pairs of shoes, and a toothbrush, you will easily hit 9-10 kg. so this airline expects you to travel with a 20" bag that is only partially filled, which is ridiculous."

Pros: "Great flight...on time..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff were rude, mean, unwelcoming, and unhelpful"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Chair I was in didn't recline"

Pros: "Comfortable and on time!"

Pros: "Very smooth boarding and pleasant on board crew."

Cons: "I thought my ears were deceiving me when they mentioned 3 AUD for lavatory use! Inhumane! And that's on top of having to pay for my check-in luggage. I felt completely dooped! Traveling through the outback, I had no scale, no wifi, etc. And after paying an exorbitant amount, we were STILL given hassles for our carry-on.. Apparently if you "wear" your luggage on your body, it's free of charge (but on aggregate, it still adds to weight & balance of the plane). And how this all contributes to fast handling is beyond me. Moronic rules! Of all the great times I had in Australia, JetStar was the only utter disappointment I had to endure! Never again!"

Pros: "Initially, the ticket was cheap."
Cons: "The cost of my baggage was triple the cost of my flight. The assistants at the desk and gate were rude. I don't fly internationally often and I was anxious, they did not have time or interest in helping me. I could've been on a United flight with my parter 10 hours earlier for the same cost, had I known I would actually pay far more than the cost upfront. I will not be flying Jetstar again."

Cons: "There was no entertainment"

Pros: "the crew were as helpful as they could possibly be but the airline and it's policies suck"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being asked to pay two thousand dollars for my bags"

Cons: "The entertainment screen stopped working twice and I had to ask the crew to fix it for me twice. They were helpful and fixed it, but it was a bit of a hassle."

Pros: "nought"
Cons: "distance to board. NEVER AGAIN!"

Pros: "Everyone was very polite, to compensate for ripping us off on the cost of our luggage... By the kilo!"
Cons: "No info when we purchased the ticket on Kayak that this airline does not charge by the bag, but by the kilo. No chance to buy kilos when we bought the ticket. Got ripped off at the airport. This airline is is for backpackers, NOT for the international traveler"

Pros: "There was a security incident at airport. Jet star counter staff was aware of this, but still close the counter and left about a dozen passengers stranded in Bali overnight. The staff was rude and terrible, at first saying it was our fault for not checking in online (not true)"
Cons: "Horrible airline no wonder comedians on NZ and OZ make fun of this airline."

Pros: "Brilliant staff ... Friendly and helpful"

Cons: "over charging for carry on"

Cons: "Continued delays due to maintenance issues (on their state of the art aircraft) caused me to spend 10 hrs in the airport. For my trouble I was given a $10 refreshment voucher. This was much better service then the flight on my first leg of travels when the same exact thing happened and I spent 14 hrs in 2 different airports on my way to my final destination, when I asked customer service for some sort of voucher I was told she wasn't authorized to give me one....completely unsympathetic."

Pros: "The ticket price is enticing and it got me from point A to point B."
Cons: "Baggage is very expensive. On a 9 hour flight we were given nothing to eat or drink (except water if you asked) unless you bought it. The entertainment also costed additional money. With a budget airline you obviously give up certain luxuries, just keep that in mind n"

Pros: "Boarding at both front and back is great They don't check the weight for your carry on items... On time"
Cons: "Felt more cramped that other airlines. I was on the aisle and was getting knocked constantly by all the passer-bys"

Pros: "GOOD CABIN CREW."
Cons: ""Business Class" ? with SEVEN seats across? are you kidding? It was so cramped. bad legroom. very claustrophobic. GARUDA flys the same route with FOUR across at a similar price. unless you are a toddler,or a munchkin... avoid it/"

Cons: "The flight was delayed nearly 3 hours and I had some serious issues with Jetstar so it was a long and unpleasant experience"

Cons: "room behind seats very short, staff not very attentive to those who hadn't paid for on-board options."

Pros: "Generally nice staff. Arrived safely."
Cons: "$43 fare costs ~$150 all up. What is the $50 extra fee? Applies if I buy the tickets!!! Illegal, immoral. Pissed me off. NEVER AGAIN."

Pros: "Just ok - got us to our destination."
Cons: "Baggage charges, crammed in, screaming babies the entire flight and not even a glass of water."

Pros: "Awful airline."
Cons: "God this was an awful experience. They substituted a small plane for the big plane and bumped 100 people to a later flight with a connection thru an intermediate city, leaving 3 hours later. But that flight got delayed 2 hours so we would have missed our connection anyway and not gotten to our destination until 30 hours later. We spent most of the day standing in incredibly slow lines mislabelled Customer Service. It was nothing of the kind. The whole experience felt like being abused."

Cons: "wish flights could be like ten mins from aussie to NZ.... :-)"

Cons: "No leg room at all..."
