Pros: Food, comfort & on board entertainment not the best but for the price of the flight it was well worth it. The flight crew and those on the ground in Nadi were amazing. Fantastic service all round. Don't forget to use the Premier Lounge in Nadi if you're there for a few hours. FJ$100 for full lounge access. It was an absolute pleasure. Best way to get to the USA from NZ.

Cons: We were delayed in three hours and had to wait in this FREEZING airport. Additionally, our suitcases were not sent directly to our final destination. And of course the crew's English is poor. So we were very stressed wether we will make the connection or not.

Cons: Had 2 layovers that weren't mentioned in our original booking. Absolutely unacceptable. No online checkin either.

HGH
LAX
Excellent 9.3

Pros: Good cabin staff.

Cons: A bit cold. - Not an airline problem, but often when a flight comes through a chinese airport late, they will have the transfer path closed so you have to go out as if you want to leave their airport. The immigration officers then want you to apply for visa's and its hard to communicate that you are just wanting to connect to another flight. Maybe they need a procedure for that when a flight comes in late and they have closed the connecting path.

Pros: Significantly more leg room than other competitors! Even with the person's chair reclined in front of me, I was still able to be comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was as good as can be (given that it is airline food), the choices for entertainment were great. Lots of overhead storage!

Cons: Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke.

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: I have been traveling at least 4 times in a year for last 20 years. I never had such a worst staff specially the Msnager of Fiji airline ground staff at Sydney airport named Christopher. Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller.

Cons: Worst Fiji ground staff at Sydney airport

OK 4.6

Cons: We booked our tickets and chose our seats and nowhere did it warn or tell us that we were located in a ‘safety row’ where the arm rest would not fold up. So we could not stretch out during our 12 hr flight. This was the most uncomfortable experience I have ever had on the multiple trips I have done between USA and Australia or New Zealand. The seat ordering from the kitchen was rarely available, even after the flight attendants had finished food service and pick up. The flight attendants weren’t very friendly.

AKL
LAX
Excellent 8.3

Cons: Unlike other international flights, Air New Zealand only allows 1 check in luggage per person instead of 2. Most other international airlines allow 2 check in luggage. But otherwise it was good and the service was ok, not as much food selection as other airlines but the crew are very nice and the airline is very clean.

AKL
LAX
Excellent 8.0

Pros: Good Service

Cons: I payed $50.00 USD on a seat so I would have a bigger seat. However, when I got into the plane, the lady that was going to be seating next to me asked me if I could change my seat with her husband; which was a regular seat. In order to avoid an awkward 12 hour flight, I agreed to change my bigger seat for a smaller seat. I felt disappointment that Air New Zealand separates parties and leaves room for uncomfortable situations. I really did not know what to do in this scenario, I paid for that seat but was in a way forced to give it a away without any refund in order to avoid 12 hours seating with some stranger's wife.
