Cons: "We had 2 middle seats, which was less comfortable, but it was my fault for not choosing seats earlier."

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."

Pros: "I was feeling motion sick and several flight attendants went out of their way to help me feel better. I wish I knew their names as I would specifically mention them, but I really appreciate everything they did for me during that time."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment Good ground staff at Auckland check in Hospitable cabin crew Food was palatable"

Cons: "Small seats, no room."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats were extremely narrow. The stewards were un-attending The LA airport area was the pits, there are no one to help with your bags. I had my husband in a wheelchair and there was no one to help me with our bags! The security at LAX was joking and laughing amongst themselves and did not even look at us when they let us back into LA. We landed way far away from the building and I had to take my husband in a wheel chair and my hand luggage into a buss before we got into a building and we were the last ones to arrive, Vicky"

Pros: "Very complete selection of entertainment option, other than wireless."
Cons: "The seats have been narrowed even more. Didn't think it was possible. Had a self-contained seat and lost even more inches."

Pros: "Fabulous! Again, the Flight crew are so friendly. helpful and always smiling. The overnight flight went very fast. The dinners and hot breakfast served were beautiful. Complimentary wine with dinner was lovely."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I will not use kayak again, because they used this terrible gouging airline that we did not know we were using for our flight. We had to change the flight date of our sons trip and they wanted to charge us $350 to change the flight and then with the difference in the flight it was gonna cost us $530 on top of that. The total for our flight was going to cost us $880! We found a brand-new flight with another company for $670! It is disgraceful! I will never use KAYAK because they used this airline and they don't let you know it! we never got our money back for the flight we did not use. It was a hard lesson learned. Whole thing"

Pros: "Good entertainment system but it needs servicing. The USB port was blocked and we couldn't use seat chat or screen share.. Not good for a long flight."
Cons: "The seats were unbelievably tight for a flight of this duration. I'm small. We purchased the economy plus seats hoping that there would be a bit more room. There wasn't, so it was a waste of $100 each way for the two of us. We had much more leg room on our US domestic flight. Flight attendants don't appear to like their jobs very much. They were overly stern and impatient with passengers. Reminded me of the nuns in Catholic school growing up. Do they have any idea how uncomfortable the passengers are when we are packed in like sardines? Finally, the food isn't anything like they described and they served diet portions it seemed. I'm at a loss for why this airline was rated so highly"

Pros: "Lots of selections"
Cons: "Adult movies with many sexual scenes need to be avoided in the aircrafts! Children behind or sitting the next roll also watched it! Very concerned if I should book your airline with my 2 teenagers in the future..."

Pros: "Air NZ is the best Airline."

Cons: "I had selected an aisle seat. But on the plane, the configuration of seats was different and it wasnt an aisle seat. Since its a seriously long flight, I was very upset that my selection had not been honored."

Pros: "The crew was Ok, friendly but not overly friendly. Just professional."
Cons: "Its just a long flight and economy is just not comfortable to sleep in. Get business."

Pros: "Everything was good except"
Cons: "Seats were very crowded. Small walkway- difficult to get through with carry on baggage, difficult to pass, when attendants were helping and bent over to hand drink their body/ behinds were bumping into me"

Cons: "No vegetarian meal, lot of turbulance"

Pros: "Checkin was easy and fast. The lounge in Auckland was comfortable and well supplied."

Pros: "The Entertainment was amazing, I really enjoyed watching movies."

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

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: "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: "Everything else was good besides the below content."

Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Boarding was really poor. It need to be systematic. Lot of confusion and announcement was hard to hear."

Cons: "1. I had put in a request for vegetarian meals, but my request was ignored. At meal time, I was given a choice between chicken and lamb. I again asked for vegetarian, and was told they didn't have any. The white guy in the next row asked for the same, and it magically appeared. The attendant noticed my shocked stare and then gave me a veggie meal too. 2. On a 16 hour flight, our tv screens didn't work. None of the attendants even came by to check, even after repeatedl requests. 3. My 6 and 9 year old kids would like to know why they didn't get any of the courtesy toys/coloring books that were given to other similar age kids. I don't want to tell them it was due to their skin color. 4. Even a request for water turned into a tug of war after we had waited for almost 20 minutes. I finally poured it out myself."

Cons: "The screen blacked out mid flight (on a 16 hr long flight!) and there was nothing anyone really tried to do to fix it except 'reset' which did nothing. Unfortunate this happened when the flight was so long."

However when I brushed my teeth in the restroom, it did not have that horrid smell and taste as the drinking water did. Two inflight staff was rude, Didn't get their names but both ladies blocked passengers way when they were trying to get back to their seats and rolled their eyes at a lot of passengers for various requests. Completely not professional!"

Cons: "No delay,"

Cons: "0"

Cons: "Food was very average for business class"

Pros: "Great service on the flight."

Cons: "Nothing. Probably the best airline flown"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "can not think of any."

Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."

Pros: "Paying for extra leg room was the best investment. We felt like we were in business class (although haven't ever travelled it). The crew were sensational, obliging, friendly and accommodating."

The food and mid flight snacks were delicious and free, the on-board entertainment was extremely diverse, entertaining and free, the offer of a glass of wine with my meal was delightful and having a bottle of water waiting in my seat pocket was very thoughtful and much needed during mid-flight. Quantas may not be as high tech as some of its sister airlines but the basic needs of its passengers are met without fanfare or need to fuss around with price lists and coupons and wether or not you have a debit card, credit card, visa or mastercard, cash or indeed, no card or cash at all. Quantas is my airline of choice and they have delivered every time."

Pros: "Entertainment selection was good, that was about it."
Cons: "Service was so poor. Being in economy they treated you like you were more of a nuisance to them then a customer. Got one drink served to me, 3 hours in, on a 14 hour flight. Our first meal was 3 hours in, and was served 30 min after the people next to me. Trash and dishes were not picked up and when we asked attendant he asked us to bring them to the cabin ourselves! after sitting with them in front of us for an hour after dinner. Window screens left up during flight omitting sun glare making It hard to sleep. been making the LAX to Brisbane or Sydney flight to 8 years now, Qantas has progressively got worse while Virgin customer service remains as a high standard. Looks like sales on Qantas will no longer entice me, I'll be sticking with virgin"

I was told there were no other flights to LA and I would have to get a hotel until tomorrow. I was only going to be in California for 2 days so every second counts, so when I became upset the man checked again and found me a seat on a plane that took off in an hour.
