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."

"Clean the toilet more often."

Pros: "Great crew, excellent staff at the airport. Planes were nice and comfortable. Food was ok. They have an excellent price to quality ratio; you can often get great prices on some of the more popular destinations and the service is 5 stars."
Cons: "Some alcoholic drinks"

Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."

Cons: "Earphones never connects at my seat either other seat it’s was little hard to watch movies"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."

Pros: "Very courteous, friendly, professional flight crew and gate crew."
Cons: "Nothing to mention...very pleased"

Pros: "The crew is always very professional."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment was down for 2/3 of the people flying. And it was a 14 hour flight... :/"

Pros: "Luxury, comfort and hospitality"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Everything was good and nice. Had a good time and felt welcomed. Had a really good experience."

Pros: "Excellent-18 hour flight but Qatar really looks after you. Crew amazing and food is pretty good."

Pros: "Departed on time. Courteous staff."
Cons: "I had a continuing flight in first class but was not allowed entrance to the first class lounge."

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Nothing for kids. First time i have seen that no toys for kids. No tv and entertaiment for adults"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seat comfort was not very good.. and food was bad"

Pros: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."

Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"

Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"

Pros: "In-flight crew was excellent."

Cons: "Qatar counter check asked how long I will be staying in Ho Chi Minh, even though my visa expired in 2022! Surprise and they are aware of my ticket with a return in Thi September. Then I was asked for how long I will stay is not of Qatar concern. Too much of concern!"

Pros: "So many movies to spend flight time with great crew"
Cons: "There are couple things. First of all, it was cold almost for everyone: everyone used a blanket, and some people asked for a second blanket. Secondly, I think that if this airline became the best airline in 2017, staff should care about their passengers’ stuff more than they do, so backpacks or suitcases don't lose parts or get crushed during flights. When I got my backpack back, I thought that someone had used it to play football. My backpack had lost some parts, and some pieces of it were torn!"

Pros: "legroom"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"

Cons: "Cramped and full flight with no entertainment. Stewardesses were also talkin too much among themselves."

Pros: "The crew was very polite. Being able to track flight path. Assortment of videos. Plain was very clean. Blankets, pillow, headphones, and all beverages free of charge."
Cons: "The food was not good. Not very much leg room. Did not like the 15 lbs. carry on weight limit."

Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."

Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."

Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Cons: "My volume did not work well on the entertainment system."

Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"

Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."

Cons: "Boarding at JFK very disorganized. Poor system. No vetting of wheel chair users many fakers."

Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."

Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."

Pros: "Upgrade to business class was a nice gesture and the service was impeccable.."
Cons: "Just a tad delayed in getting off the plane...not sure what took unexpectedly long"

Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."

Pros: "Exlent"

Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"

Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"

Pros: "Everything, great airlineevrething"

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."

Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"

Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."

Pros: "The food and entertainment systems were good. The staff on the plane were pleasant."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean plane and airport. Only reason for choosing Qatar airways was cheapest fare."
Cons: "Few crew members attitude and services are highly unprofessional. Everything at Doha airport is way more expansive than neighboring international airports. Food quantity and quality in flights is below average. Security at Doha airport are highly unprofessional and have no respect for passengers and their privacy."

Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Crowded flight, late departure."

Pros: "Todo estuvo prfecto"
Cons: "La comida no es nada del otro mundo"

Pros: "A350 is a very comfortable plane. More legroom than Emirates. Big difference for long flights."
Cons: "Service could be faster (food, etc). Entertainment system did not work on some of the seats."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"
