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

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

Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"

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: "I can’t be more demanding. Everything on the flight were good."

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."

Pros: "Staff were always happy and friendly"

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

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

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,"

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

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: "It was operated by air New Zealand so the service was top notch once I was able to resolve all other issues boarding."
Cons: "We had a flight bought on virgin Australia and operated with air New Zealand. The air New Zealand part was all great plane boarding etc, the horrible part is that we bought baggage allowances with virgin and they never transferred the information to air New Zealand. So there I am from the USA in a foreign country boarding a flight being asked to pay 500 nz dollars for a few kilos when I had already paid for it. Having to produce emails and payment information on something I had done months in advance. Overall I won’t recommend virgin next time I’d book directly with air New Zealand"

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

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 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."
Cons: "Allow passengers to choose if they want a vegetarian meal."

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: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"

Pros: "Everything ❤❤❤"

Cons: "- Crew was ok, not friendly just professional."

Cons: "Not enough room"

Pros: "Fr]iendlyt, efficient flight attendants"

Pros: "Quick, efficient, friendly service"

Pros: "Staff were kind and thoughtful with younger passengers."

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."

Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."

Pros: "Some of the crew were excellent service wise"
Cons: "Some of the crew were less than what I would expect service wise"

Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"

Pros: "The service and entertainment. And blankets to keep you warm because it does get cold on the plane."
Cons: "Small seats, no room."

Pros: "Snack ordering system Good service (picked up passenger's eye glasses when person was sleeping)"

Pros: "Fairly comfortable flight, good onboard entertainment. I liked the selection of movies and NZ tv programs. The food was delicious and I love that complimentary wine is served."
Cons: "My only complaint was in regard to the children's meals. We ordered children's meals ahead of time for our 2 kids. On our flight from SFO to AKL, no problem but on the return flight they only brought us one child's breakfast. I asked a crew member for the other one. She told us it would be brought over but never was. So my son had to wait until the regular meals were brought and have one of those. Not a big deal but it was a little annoying. Also, for the return trip dinner, they served delicious Kapiti ice cream with the adult meal but no ice cream with the kids' meals so my kids were super disappointed about that and my husband and I shared ours with them. Again, not a terrible offense, just a little annoying."

Pros: "Loved the landing lollies :) I was in a comfortable seat for a 3.5hr flight, and the entertainment system was on par with Qantas. I've long been a staunch Qantas traveller but will remain open to air NZ when travelling to NZ in future."

"My screen didn’t work at my seat. Communication at Toronto airport between the two flights was non-existent. We were not given TSA precheck, we weren’t told we were going through US customs in Toronto, we were given instructions like go into that room and sit down. Really, really poor quality airport. Walkways were turned off, poor air conditioning, lack of food services, etc. I will try to avoid Toronto airport in future travels."

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "There were no phone chargers and no snacks."

Pros: "Typical flight"

Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "There wasn’t much for social distancing. Was kind of disappointed."

Pros: "The airline tried to keep us as comfortable as possible in the airport. The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Since we were in DC, I don't know why it took four hours to bring in another plane, since we were so close to major cities."

Cons: "Flight left 2.5 hrs late. Had to wait on tarmac 45 minutes then had to change planes and run to other end of Chicago airport. My friend was in a wheelchair so extremely inconvenient."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Food ran out and only one choice"

Cons: "Transfer from international (T5) to T1 at O'Hare is very unpleasant..Generally O'Hare is a terrible airport."

Pros: "I thought it was awesome to see the crew assist with holding babies so parents could get a little respite on the flight."

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: "Better comfortable seats. And snack options"

Cons: "It was delayed due to my earlier trip but united tried to get me a connection which was atleaogood. The overall trip was 24 hours and due to all these delays my trip took 31 hours."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for a half hour. No one announced anything about the delay until we were almost leaving. It would have been nice to at least share what was happening and when we could expect to leave. Delays are always frustrating but especially so late at night and when no information is given."

Pros: "Our family was able to sit together"
Cons: "The flight left late It arrived late and we sat out away from the gate for 15-20 minutes before getting up to the gate to deplane."

Pros: "Standard, quick domestic flight home. Nothing special."

Cons: "I paid for power, entertainment and dinner and I got none of that. My legs were FAR too long for sitting there. I am a disabled vet, the whole trip was PAINFUL."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Still sitting anothee 6 hours until departure"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Wi-Fi dropped for an extended period of time during the flight. Seat was not comfortable."

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: "I booked the basic economy and I was pleased that I had a row to myself. I was nervous it was going to be a tight flight because of the smaller plane. Also I enjoyed the onboard movies available on our personal devices."

Cons: "I wish I knew I couldn't bring my carry on with me!!! United is always finding ways to screw the passenger's experience. I have a wedding to go to and needed my small duffle carry on with me and because I got a "basic economy" ticket, this was not possible. Some forewarning of this insanity would have been helpful! Really so annoyed!"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING~"

Cons: "Many delays I can't believe you're making people pay now $25 to check Carry on bags. That makes me want to use Delta every single time"

Cons: "You cannot check in online so you have to wait in line for an agent to check you in. The fare only allows you a middle seat. There is really not much good about this low fare. I'd rather take a low cost airline then get treated like you get treated on the basic economy fare."

Pros: "I got some unexpected exercise running to three different gates that turned out to be wrong yet UAL sent the entire plane to each gate only to send us back to the initial gate."
Cons: "Apparent lack of planning and coordination on part of UAL when confronted with mechanical problem in initial plane."

Cons: "Need more leg room and more movie options. Also crew needs to be a little nicer lol"

Pros: "I survived."
Cons: "Just before takeoff we had to abort and the crew slammed on the brakes. It was entirely frightening. We sat on the runway for a long time after that while the crew did not have clear answers for what was happening or why. Several things happened while we were on that plane that were unnerving for the passengers. So much so that at least one passenger threw up. Very scary. We did end up taking that plane on to our destination two hours later, but it was the worst flight experience of my life."

Pros: "I had a enjoyable flight look forward to flight with them again."

Cons: "Terrible customer service. Will never fly united again."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The economy seats are TOO CLOSE TOGETHER. Attendants NEED to be more aware of the size of carry-on items and the amount each person brings onto the plane. People in the front 10 rows of the plane should not be putting their luggage in the back, taking up space so people in groups 3-5 have space to put their luggage."

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "There was a very large couple sitting in seat to my right. I'm 6'3 250 so not small. It had a rear bathroom and I had people banging on me the whole flight!!!!!! She could have moved some people around!!!! The worst flight of my life!!!! It's about customer service."

Pros: "Quick to dapart"
Cons: "Quick to de-board"

Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "We were not seated together and had to pay 84 dollars to get preferred seating together and this was booked 2 mos ago???"

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "I did not have an assigned seat upon arrival despite buying the ticket several days in advance. I almost was bumped. VERY FRUSTRATING."

Pros: "Liked the leg room. Flights were on time"
Cons: "Glass of soda with more ice than soda kinda sucked."

Pros: "Crew was really friendly, and the boarding was quick."
Cons: "There was no snacks or anything to eat during the flight ."

Pros: "The crew was very considerate and nice to all passengers."
Cons: "It took forever to board and people had to move because the plane was unbalanced. That shouldn't happen in 2016."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and quickly, (e.g. check in, baggage, seat and storage) Staff were helpful and friendly."

Pros: "First of all, the crew was amazing. I had just been traveling for about 20 hours and I had a seat towards the back of the economy section. After traveling that long, I was getting antsy to be at my destination, and I asked the gate agent if she could bump me to a row towards the front of economy- thankfully the plane wasn't full, and she was able to! It's the little things like that, that are what make me fly United. Also, the cabin crew on the flight was great! Of course, the economy section of the plane wasn't an ideal amount of space, but come on- it was an hour flight, and they did a good job of trying to spread people out so that the rows weren't packed."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer because the plane was being cleaned. I believe they said the overnight flight got in a little late and they still had to clean the plane. We boarded late, but still got to our destination early. Negative turned into a positive- you can't beat that!"

Pros: "This flight was very relaxing as it could be. I do not like to fly but the crew made it very easy to relax and get comfortable."

Pros: "This was a nonstop flight with Air Canada, in cooperation with United Airlines"
Cons: "A small plane, crowded and full, for a non stop, international flight. Obviously, United prefers to use the larger, more comfortable planes for flights through their hub in Chicago- which is always a hot mess!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great, and the in cabin experience went smoothly."
Cons: "It took over half an hour, for the plane to depart from the runway. In addition, the gate was changed three times without overhead announcements from O'Hare."

Pros: "It was my grandson's first plane ride. They let us board early because I was managing two carry on suitcases. The flight was smooth and he loved the apple juice. He learned so much by looking out the window and seeing the ground and the clouds."

Pros: "Internet, tv"
Cons: "Flight was 1.75 hours late"

Pros: "Price was good. Flight attendant was particularly good and promptly checked and verified I had a wheelchair secured for Mpls. Alll flight attendants held positive personable attitude. Arrived on time"

Cons: "No wifi. No movie."

Cons: "One of the crew members was very mean towards some people I was sitting near. They were older and didn't realize that once we pushed off you had to remain in your seat and she came and told them they were breaking the law and would be arrested for standing up, in such a nasty tone they didn't say another word the whole flight. When we were offered something to drink they declined. I jumped out of my seat realized I forgot to ask where the bags were placed that were collected on the jet bridge and went back to ask if they were in baggage claim or not and she yelled at me for turning around and told me she could not speak me because I had exited the plane already."
