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 ."

Pros: "No security on this regional flight; made it simple to board. Very quiet for a turboprop aircraft. Boarding was delayed and not well announced."

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: "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"
