Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant and it was nice to get a drink of water, a cookie and the offer of a cup of tea or coffee"

Pros: "GREAT CREW, THEY DID THE BEST THEY COULD. VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL."
Cons: "Ground personnel could have been way more helpful. We came back from Europe and needed to take a domestic flight to Palmerston North.We had a lot of handluggage that was allowed in our international flight, we had purchased an extra suitcase ticket to make sure it wouldn't be a problem. The lady that helped us was not willing to include any more items than 1 small suitcase that weighed only 11 kg, but we had paid for 23 kg. When we wanted to board the airplane we were told we could only take 7 kg each. Which caused problems and stress that we couldn't use after a 40-hour flight from Europe. We discussed this with the lady at the counter which wasn't really helpful to start with, but eventually, she let us board the plane anyway after we had to explain our situation a few times, and after she asked us to weigh our extra items, which of course we're more than 7 kg. We were pleased that at least she let us board our plane in the end. Hopefully next time we won't encounter the same problems."

Pros: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."

Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The airline and staff appear to be friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Seating in economy is tight. You really cannot move without annoying the passengers on either side. This also makes eating difficult."

Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"

Pros: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."

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: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."

Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"

Pros: "The crew was great. The seats were good but not as spacious as some other business class airline seats."
Cons: "The TV screen interferes with the tray table and could knock off food from the table."

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: "Very Slow meal service, had to ring for sparkling water when we had asked the attendant during the meal service. Took 20 minutes."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "It ran a bit late"

Pros: "My first experience in business class"

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."

Cons: "Auckland to Chicago was fine. Chicago to Minnesota was horrible. The departure plane showed up late due to weather which is understandable. Once the plane showed up we waited for over 4 hours for a pilots to show up. Our flight could have bee managed much better, poor job by United!"

Pros: "Staff were always happy and friendly"

Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"

Cons: "Our family nearly missed the trip due to delayed from Melbourne"

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

Pros: "Staff and seating"
Cons: "Paying for movies on a long trip really stingy ☹"

Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"

Cons: "i was a little disappointed in seating .... felt like a Sardine ... unlike my flight from Brisbane to Auckland on my way to LA... which surprised me,"

Pros: "Everything was really smooth in terms of transitions."
Cons: "I didn’t like how people had different packages and I hadn’t realized that I didn’t have the food package."

Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"

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

Pros: "The flight was on time, staff courteous and we made good time to the destination."

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."

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

Pros: "Crew were lovely."
Cons: "Had a lot of hassle adding baggage to this leg of my trip on booking. At check in i was asked to pay $130 for baggage, which was no surprise. Luckily Air New Zealand ground staff sorted it out and I did not have to pay. I will book direct with the airlines next time."

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

Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful"

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: "This flight was great. The team were friendly and the plane was also well air conditioned."

Pros: "The crew were delightful. Nice cup of tea and a magnificent day for flying."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Meal was excellent"
Cons: "Would have liked a blanket, it was a bit cold."

Pros: "I was very impressed with the older Japanese attendant’s attitude in helping everyone onboard. A family sitting 2 seats in front moved around a lot while putting their baby and toddler to sleep for the night flight. The attendant discreetly gave those of us earplugs and eye masks to help us shut out the noise. Also, her smile and pleasant attitude made it an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I had to pay extra to get an aisle seat."

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: "Comfortable"

Pros: "Crew complete meals and drinks efficiently so passengers can settle quickly for night flight"

Pros: "The fact that every possible thing was tajen 8nto account to connect us from our late arrival intetnational flight. Great team"

Pros: "I had my seat changed due to my injured leg, staff acted swiftly, flight was relaxing."

Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"

Cons: "Nothing to say."

Cons: "Airplane to late"

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Good choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Food can be improved. A little bit of innovation is needed."

Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."

Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."

Pros: "Excellent all round.a"

Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."

Cons: "Nothing i"

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."

Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"

Pros: "Everything was good especially the spacious seats and food"

Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit. I had the same meal twice it was very sad meal for 17.5 hrs with no snacks offered either. My partner and another man were forgotten as the meal rounds were being done. The crew seemed a little disorganised. The adverts on the entertainment were annoying."

Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was forgotten and when I asked for it I received dried red cabbage and a dried up tomato and a grated carrot and something I didn't know what it was. The bread was not gluten free on this meal so I couldn't eat it. Unlike the first leg of my journey this meal didn't have my name or seat number on. I feel like it was put together once I asked where my meal was. Snacks offered but not gluten free so was very hungry from previous flight."

Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."

Pros: "Consistently good service from emirates crew"
Cons: "Too much meat in the dining options Boarding was slow"

Cons: "Food was not awful and most item not available in Fist Suites"

Cons: "didn't like anything about it"

Pros: "Didn’t get this flight as we were so delayed."

Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"

Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."

Pros: "The seats are relatively good on the newer A380s. The film selection was good."
Cons: "The meal was poor."

Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"

Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Got a promotional upgrade and was incredibly impressed ! Flying will never be the same !"
Cons: "The fact that my next flight is going to be economy"

Pros: "Good space for economy class"
Cons: "Announce duty free on flight is closing soon so if interested to purchase last min pls check with crew...by the time you get hold of crew I find out it’s closed - all in 5 mins, from the time I saw message and spoke with crew member it was shut. Should give a little more time on announcements, enough to get a crew member and see products to purchase."

Pros: "Great legroom in Economy seats on A380 DXB-LGW Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Inflight service perfunctory Food of adequate standard Both used to be much better on Emirates"

Pros: "Cheap tickets. Airplane is A380. Good timeschedule. Good list of alcohol and drinks. Sky bar at the upper desk."
Cons: "I have maiden upgrade from economy to business and I can’t use Emirates business lounge. Stewards forgot my starter and drink. No cosmetics set - just 3 tubes of hand cream in toilet. Services was very slow. Emirates, is it you?! No more business class in Emirates."

Pros: "Attentive crew (Busines cabin was near empty). Highlights the deficit caused by large occupancy A380 Business cabin. A380 business cabin has been economy classed to within an inch of its life, too few crew and those that are on duty disorganised and stressed. 777 crew ratio was 3 crew to 1 pax :)"
Cons: "Engine noise. Boarding in Dubai was a farce as called to gate even though aircraft was severely delayed inbound. Surly lounge staff didn’t help. Business Class gate desk ‘closed’ even though staffed as person was busy on the phone. Weird 2 - 3 - 2 layout means window and centre seats have to clamber over reclined neighbours. Seat width better than A380 and also less tomb like when reclined to nearly flat bed."

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Checkin services Staff attitude"

Pros: "Love the idea of informing every leg of my flight. Thanks"

Cons: "Food was not tasty or interesting."

Cons: "I shouldn't be forced to change my seat just because a hostess told me to then she was rude to me because I didn't then I finally changed my seat and she was ok- I don't think this is appropriate"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No leg room for 6’6” person."

Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"

Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."

Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"

Pros: "Taco"
Cons: "Taco"

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"

Pros: "Always Veg Meal for All"
Cons: "N A"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Explain why there’s over a 2 hour delay"

Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."

Pros: "Good choice of movies but not all have subtitles, which comes in handy since phones are not really good. Food was great!"
Cons: "Seating pitch is just not acceptable for 10+ hrs long flight! I am tall (1.92 cm) but there are taller people than me and there is just no way they can sit in economy class seat! That is basically some kind of racism.."

Cons: "Smooth on time flight"

Cons: "2 seats and neither tv/entertainment centres worked....unacceptable on a 10 hr flight!"

Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."

Pros: "Was upgraded to Comfort Plus after they had no seat for me on the plane"
Cons: "We booked with Virgin however flew with Delta and we were not alerted to this. We booked with Virgin for a reason. They also did not have seats for me when I went to check in on both flights and I had to negotiate seats before boarding. Very disappointing."

Pros: "extra legroom of comfort plus zone"
Cons: "Bordung process runs smoother now that the order is made clear ahead of time. In jfk they did not have the columns marked “comfort” “priority? “Main 3”, etc, like they had at Reagan arpoirt in DC"

Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."

Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"

Cons: "Everything. Can it please leave on time for once"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were nice. Flight itself was short. Was quick boarding considering how busy the flight was"
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seats were rigid and not very comfortable. No entertainment. Just basic really."

Pros: "Food was decent and crew were nice enough"
Cons: "Seat space was small and cramped. Entertainment was poor unfortunately"

Pros: "Boarding was super quick, as crew wanted to leave before the strong rains and winds came through, so we left early! Plane itself was very modern and surprisingly comfortable, as much as a small space can be. Good amount of entertainment, and the crew were pleasant. And flight itself was smooth with very little turbulence which helps!"
Cons: "Had to pay for food, which was a little annoying considering the cost of the flight. Entertainment was very American led... but I guess not surprising considering it’s delta."

Pros: "On time flight courteous service"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."

Pros: "Clean plane, the seat felt roomy. Smooth ride and the captain communicated clearly."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"

Pros: "Waiting in the departure lounce was ok"
Cons: "Boarding was kind of stupid Delta is boarding in Zones and starts at the front instead of starting boarding passangers sitting at the back of the plane and moving forward NO they do it the wrong way and due to that boarding takes to long and makes you frustrated."

Pros: "Staff, service, options"

Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"

Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."

Cons: "-"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "I hate the biscuits and water... really? On a 3hrs and 30 minutes flight. You guyz can do better"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."

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: "The on time departure. The air hostesses were very attentive. Fast baggage arrival"

Pros: "see SH to GZ prior flight. The same."
Cons: "Same problems. Get KFC or McDonalds to cater. No one enjoys the airline's food which I suspect is prepared on a very small budget. Even a sandwich with a pre-packaged drink would elevate the foodservice."

Pros: "No..no redeeming features.."
Cons: "Coffee was the worst I've ever had. The 2+1 powdered mil and coffee stick. Truly awful. But i suppose there aren't many people on the flight who would order coffee..I would even pay extra for a coffee if they had a quality option. Food is comparable to a school canteen. I would probably pay 20rmb for this in Shanghai. Frozen butter for the half-frozen bread. They really couldn't do worse..."

Cons: "Seats, crew, food."

Pros: "Excellent sleeper seat in business class. Good food. Good service. On time departure and on time arrival."
Cons: "no suggestions"

Pros: "Nice crew, night food."

Pros: "It was a newer model of the plane that I flew out with and it showed. Excellent interior, food was better than the previous flight. Very comfortable and functional for each individual . Crew were fantastic in there dealings with the passengers Overall a very pleasant experience"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment was not as good as I expected. To the extent there wasn’t anything that I wanted to watch as I’d seen the only 2 films that I wanted to watch in my previous long haul leg. TV series were severely lacking in choice as was the latest movies."

Cons: "Crew service is excellent. Flight was fast without any delay in take off in Guangzhou Airport. Food in Business Class is pedestrian."

Pros: "All are fine"
Cons: "Choice of food should be offered"

Pros: "Helpful staff both on ground and in the air"
Cons: "- The plane supposedly has free wifi :) :) :) but this is too good to be true. After a long and complicated procedure “all free wifi passes are gone, try again next time”. Someone said there are only 70 passes for the entire plane. - Similar experience with “free wifi” Guangzhou’s Bayun airport if you don’t have a Chinese simcard in your phone. - Navigating China Southern’s website for online check-in is a nightmare."

Cons: "Food is catered for one group of people, should be more international."

Pros: "I was expecting less and China Southern delivered a very good experience on their.international flight from Auckland to Guangzhou. I was able to meet up with my son who flew them from SFO and fly on to Cambodia together. Guangzhou airport is stellar, clean, spacious, and transit was comfortable. Will flutter again with confidence."
Cons: "The usual complaint thatevery airline's economy seats are just too small."

Pros: "Very nice comfortable seats in business and wonderful FA. This was a short connection so i was nervous what to do as ive never been to guangzhou before...but they met me at the departure stairs, another person guided me thru all the steps to security and it was great! No line at security so i was thru fast...very impressive airport and china southern"
Cons: "No vip bus for businessclass, we waited a long time, poor organization. Flight delaye of 30 minutes. Then nine of my luggage arrived in manila!! Very bad! The baggage agent couldnt tell even where the bags were at...very poor organization. Finally got the bags de,ivered the next day but no compensation...im unimoressed with this asoect of china southern..poorly done"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Over 2 hours late on departure"

Cons: "The boarding was shambles, the seats mediocre and not comfortable neither were the pillows or bedding looking clean. The staff tried but they ran out of items pretty quick. I paid for KLM and got something sub-par"

Pros: "Professionalism of the Crew."
Cons: "Business class seat are tired and in need of an overdue update."

Pros: "Service was excellent !"

Pros: "The flight itself was excellent !"
Cons: "I had to return early because of a Crisis in the Family. the amount charged to change the ticket date as Highway Robbery. no consideration what so ever !"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great smooth flight"

Pros: "Seat space"
Cons: "Flight was 1 1/2 hours late and China Southern had shortened the connection time in Guanzough, China to Kuala Lumpur. In spite of me asking the crew to contact China Southern in Guanzough, no assistance was given. 'Service' by China Southern in Guanzough was NON-EXISTENT! We missed our flight to Kual Lumpur --where we had a driver waiting, a hotel for 2 nights, and a tour the next day. We lost ALL of those and did not arrive in Kuala Lumpur until 2PM the next day. Timing was CRITICAL that we be in Kuala Lumpur the night before per the schedule. China Southern served no beer or liquor on their international flight --only cheap wine in the smallest plastic glasses I have ever seen."

Pros: "Sevice Short transit Flight on time Friendliness"
Cons: "No halal menu. Please offer at least one full can of soda."

Cons: "Guangzhou airport transfer was uncomfortable expensive and won’t be traveling via this airport again"

Pros: "Fligths were on time"
Cons: "The entertainment system didint work on my seat, the crew on the fligth from China to Bangkok was not friendly, most of they were not smiling."

Pros: "Stewardess and stewards work"
Cons: "My seat"

Pros: ""Nothing". I really mean it Nothing."
Cons: "I was flying to Delhi & it was an emergency situation for me bcz i lost my Dad & i was flying to perform the cremation of my Dad. And thing this was informed to the China Southern officials so that they could arrange something for me. I requested them to put me into another flight for which i was ready to pay the whole amount but no one listen to my request & i had to wait so long. I was amazed to see that no one was keen to understand my problem at both he airports i.e. Auckland Airport & Ganzhaou Airport. Apart from this the behavior of your officials was so rude & arrogant it made me feel as if i was a slave or some kind of culprit. Due to the ignorance & laid back attitude on your part i couldn't reach my destination on my time. Seriously it took me "24 hrs Extra" to reach my destination & as a result of which i couldn't perform the cremation. I was pissed off by the service; complete ignorance by the staff/officials of ur airlines. I wasn't expecting this kind of treatment from a reputed company like you. I request you guys to look into this matter seriously and try to take some corrective measures so that this thing won't happen in future with someone else."

Pros: "The 3 employees at the counter got together & solved a glitch in our Australia visa that was priventing them from issueing bording pass for our second leg of travel They were outstanding & also unexpectedly we received a hotel respite for our 8 hour layover in Guangzhou! Smiling flight atendents. This is my first travel with China southern On the other hand during 6 wk prior to our trip we were unable to get anybody on the phone to ask Q or reserve a seat. On line charades where like a closed loops ! The price for long haul: Dubai/Guangzhou/cairns could not be beat!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ground staff did not want to help me and refused to put me on this flight because they reffered to no transit visa, although I was legally allowed to get on the flight as I have just found out, but it is gone already. As a result all my consecutive flight were cancelled as no show. I tried to reach the airline help line, however due to Chinese New Year they don't work, so there was no way to solve this problem I am VERY dissapointed. Will take this case to the court if my money not refunded"

Pros: "Excellent pilot. Good skills. Steady take-off and landing."
Cons: "Food on board wasn’t nice at all. The quality of food should be improved and China Southern should take it seriously."

Pros: "Smaller plane, but more personal space."
Cons: "No entertainment available, but to be expected on shorter flights."

Pros: "One of crew lady was very rude. Lunch was bed , but movies were great!"
Cons: "Was comfortable flight, didn't late for first time. But disappointed with crew."

Pros: "It wasn’t a difficult flight"
Cons: "Wish there would’ve been inflight entertainment"

Cons: "I paid the seating selection and seat was assigned. The southern airlines changed my seat, didn’t fulfi my requirements. Didn’t do anything to comfort me."

Pros: "Cabin crew very courtious and professional."
Cons: "Sitting on the Business class seats is like sitting a lump of rocks."

Pros: "Service and aircraft fleet."
Cons: "Most flights delayed for no good reason. Miss connections on both legs of our round trip to India"

Pros: "Meals and professional cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats and movies are due for an update."

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Two flights now that I had a touchscreen that didn't work. Flight was fine but not exceptional. The main frustrations were from inconsiderate passengers - no doubt the ones who take advantage of lower airfares."

Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Food, entertainment, solid"
Cons: "Flight got rerouted to Chicago because of snow. Airline abandoned us for almost 10 hours. No one knew where to go, what to do. That part was horrible after a 15 hour flight."

Pros: "Seats were ok. Downloaded media for each seat was diverse and entertaining. Food was alright."
Cons: "Crew was pretty curt and not polite. They also 'didn't have time' to load my bag onto the plane, along with ~15 other people. I had to wait two days for it to arrive. 'No time' to load bags is kind of an odd and slightly unacceptable reason to not load baggage onto a plane. Airlines close check-in for flights 30 mins before departure time to ensure that all bags make it onto the plane. I was 3 hours early. Don't know why they 'didn't have time'. They also broke my friend's bag."

Cons: "Me and many customers on CZ 371 lost our baggages during the transit in Guangzhou. Still no update on lost and found yet."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff was so rude and tv is not working properly"

Pros: "Ontime departure"
Cons: "Nothing special. Entertainment system was intermittently working requiring reveal reboot. Food just average or perhaps slightly below. Customer service was fair but not to the caliber of other Asian airlines (e.g., Cathay Pacific)"

Pros: "Great staff, food, comfort. Very clean toilets."

Pros: "Everything on time amd friendly helpful staff. The food was not bad and the sandwiches and drinks in between were good and plentiful. As well there was alot of entertainment options. My bag didn't make it on my flight, but this was due to a tight connection and it arrived on the next flight."
Cons: "Immigration at Guangzhou airport was too time consuming for a 24 hour layover. The airline was convienent and cheap- but if it loses the convienence by delaying passangers with cumbersome visa procedures, I at least will transit through another country and not use China Southern."

Cons: "The food is great in business class, great service, really enjoyed it"

Cons: "The queues at immigration in San Francisco were disgracefully long. it took us 3 hrs to get to our luggage. Advice to US govt to employ more immigration officers. Airlines should report on this"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food was poor"

Cons: "United Airlines in our experience runs late putting a lot of pressure on any ongoing connections . Not clean . Staff not friendly . Only sometimes helpful."

Pros: "Came close to missing flight because of gate delay because of connecting flight, but one of the flight attendants saw I was flustered and sweaty and gave me a cup of water before the flight even took off. Very thoughtful and nice."

Pros: "Read above"

Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Aircon too cool"

Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."

Pros: "For all the turbulence that we heard about, the flight was extremely smooth which I attribute to the pilot's skills"
Cons: "We kept on being told that there was going to be turbulence and that it would be too rocky to serve food/drinks - but there was limited turbulence and the flight was very smooth. There was also a delay in leaving as there was an extra bag in hold but they 'couldn't find it'."

Pros: "Flight was nice and empty"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cabin cleanliness is below average"
Cons: "Cabin service is average"

Pros: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."
Cons: "-"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."

Pros: "Comfortable and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan food options left"

Pros: "Not much to like. The flight was okay."
Cons: "Not having free Wi-Fi and sound on the entertainment.I We could have been offered complimentary snacks as well with the beverage."

Cons: "To whom it may concern I had booked flight from Casablanca to Chicago via Frankfurt , on May 6th , by Lufthansa, two hours before the flight , at the counter in CMN , they notified me , that the flight , is over booked , and I can’t catch this flight , and they offered me different difficult options, , till the flight boarded , they offered me one of the most inconvenient flights , and reward me some amount , in this case : I missed my flight which accordingly , lose my appointment , and lose my business. I frustrated with this decision at late hours . I asked full consideration of all the difficulty situation and the turbles they put me ."

Pros: "The leg room and comfort in economy, for a 767, were surprisingly good but the quality of screen and entertainment was lacking. The screen on my iPhone is bigger than the screen on the seatback which if compared to other airlines is not up to the mark. The lack of facilities to charge things like ipads or iPhone was disappointing."
Cons: "The seat comfort was good as was the legroom in economy. The crew were friendly and helpful and I found the overall experience good. If Unitied could build on that and just offer power (even usb) and larger screens they would be onto a winner."

Pros: "Good. Seating. Not too crowded"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."

Pros: "all smooth"

Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Very cramped with staff who I found overbearing. Not the most pleasant experience."

Pros: "No faults"
Cons: "Very pleasant flight"

Pros: "bad movie choices"

Pros: "Not much to like on United. The boarding was the best part as the staff were somewhat helpful."
Cons: "One nice flight attendant out of the five I interacted with. I'm flying United less and less because the service just sucks."

Pros: "Pleased with all"

Pros: "Friendly staff, happy to help"
Cons: "Was all good"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Economy seats had ok legroom."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled so we automatically got out on the next flight. Our stop over went from 2h to over 7h. Staff at checkin were very unhelpful. They told us to go to the website to request a refund and wouldn't offer us any flight upgrades. We got on the flight and people were told not to sit in the unoccupied enconomy plus seats unless they paid for them. Pretty poor that considering there were at least 2 rows of seats available they are so tight they can't even be bothered to compensate us in a way that won't effect their bottom line. We completed the return request only to be told that refunds are not offered on schedule changes. Again pretty shoddy customer service and shows that all they are about is your money. The breakfast we had was disgusting. The melted cheese looked like someone had vomited onto my tray. On waiting for our connecting flight there was an old lady who was dumped at a gate on a wheel chair. They person then left without telling them what was happening. We could see she was anxious about not knowing what was happening. My wife went to the United help desk to ask for information for the lady's flight and was told she should just check the information board and dismissed. Not sure how an old lady who can't walk is meant to do this (this was explained to them). If United had bothered to make some kind of effort to be at least helpful in any stage with refunding / upgrading us and being helpful to an old lady maybe this review would be different. Ultimately all they care about is your money and will deliver a shockingly bad customer service wherever they can get away with it. I WONT be flying United again. I will pay more for another airline."

Pros: "Excellent flight"
Cons: "At check in time being told I needed a eta visa to enter Canada!"

Pros: "The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks"
Cons: "10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight."

Pros: "The United Airlines lady on the desk at Terminal 2 was tremendously helpful (she had an Indian name beginning with S). She helped me sort out my ESTA and ETA for Canada and ensured I got through security without too much delay."

Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The staff had no meal for me despite me having ordered one. The entertainment system wasn't working and neither was the wifi to allow you to watch on your own device. Old planes with uncomfortable seats. Really poor airline."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved upon (less sugar and carbs, more fresh vegetables/fruits)"

Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The flight was full to capacity"

Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."

Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."

Pros: "Both flight were delayed and I had to reschedule my flights and miss my arrangements."
Cons: "It looks like that there is no respect for Time ."

Cons: "Why the hell would you sell a flight with a 40 minute transfer between a domestic and international flight that were in different terminals?! The only reason I made it was because the airport crew was great in helping me get through the airport quickly. And the only reason my luggage made it on time was because my flight was delayed for two hours."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I hit the side of my foot on a sharp piece if metal that was exposed on the right side of my seat. I bled and took pictures"

Pros: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "It was good. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The plane was delayed 4 times...but I was kept updated."
