Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "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: "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: "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: "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."

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."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "There is only a food box which contains a small sandwich, a small cake and a small cup of fruit pieces with a drink of 250ml ice tea for this three hour flight. I would think this kind of catering is not good enough."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific always has courteous and caring crew. From the pilot to the attendants everyone enjoys their jobs and it shows in the amount of care and effort they put into ensuring that everyone has an exceptional flight."
Cons: "3 hours delay for a flight of 1 h 45 min"
Pros: "The dinner was one of the top two I've ever had on a plane and I've flown business class around the world."
Cons: "I just don't fit comfortably into the pods and for a 14 hour flight that's a pain in the neck or lower. The seatbelts must be adjustable to allow a pod user to roll on his side."
Pros: "Good meal and serve more food"
Cons: "Line up to the plane shouldbe in short time"
Cons: "The staff very accomadating and helpful"
Pros: "Polite crew, good food"
Cons: "Newer plane on flight from HKG to sFo"
Cons: "The sound at my seat didn’t work so I had a a 14 hour flight with no soundtrack. I watched one Japanese movie with subtitles and then gave up"
Pros: "The food was okay which is much better than the outbound flight."
Cons: "The seat is quite narrow but it's okay for me. However, I do think bigger people might have problems with it."
Cons: "It’s front row business class. First of CX needs to be upgraded like the 777-300R, full recline , 4 seats in one row instead of 7. Specifically seat 12c front rower, when the foot rest comes up, there is no room for your feet, if you have long legs. Very uncomfortable for an expensive ticket"
Pros: "Very delayed flight that resulted to missed my flight going to davao"
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "The seats assigned are so at the back at the aircraft. Even both of us are members of the airline we haven’t received any flight notification. That’s really bad"
Cons: "Nice flight"
Cons: "Both the USB and headphone Jacks were busted. Just had a bad seat this time."
Cons: "The crew service very lack"
Pros: "Liked: moive selection. Hagendazs ice cream. Flight went smooth."
Cons: "My check in bag was lost. Hope to get it back in the next few days."
Pros: "Smooth flight and service."
Cons: "Only one water closet was available and there were no amenities given such as socks or toothbrush as other international flights provide."
Cons: "Signs on the airport screens were not updated in time so estimated departure times passes without boarding notices."
Pros: "I liked the crew, the food, comfort. Everything made my travel experience great"
Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Cons: "Poor inflight service"
Pros: "The plane was late for no reason. Missed my connection in Hong Kong. Cathay pacific gave me a voucher for 9usd, it was insulting and ill not fly with them again"
Cons: "The plane was late for no reason. Missed my connection in Hong Kong. Cathay pacific gave me a voucher for 9usd, it was insulting and ill not fly with them again."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices, but the system itself was awkward and slow to respond."
Cons: "The 777 was tired. Tray tables weren’t clean and it was fitted with seats that did not recline. Most uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Fantastic flight"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Bulk head seats. People walked over me all night including staff"
Pros: "The cabin crew was nice, courteous, and professional. The cookie and juice were good. The variety of music was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour. Airport crew leaves a lot to be desired. The passenger next to me took up too much space- no fault of the airline tho. The soy chicken was salty."
Pros: "The usual Cathay Pacific service"
Cons: "On time departure and arrival."
Pros: "CX still has good offerings on flights from their home in Hong Kong to other destinations."
Cons: "However, CX for International Regional is, in no way, comparable to their better long-haul routes. That being said, the entire airline has lost its luster like their home country is losing their value with prices going up and value for-the-dollar going down."
Pros: "Our plane was an A350 equipped with a new entertainment center. The captain was able to get our flight in early. Unfortunately, because of weather/immigration problems at the destination, we weren't able to disembark for another 90 minutes. But I think the cabin crew handled this well, handing out both drinks and snacks. The captain also kept us informed, and also seemed to play a role in negotiating with the airport authorities to allow us to disembark at another gate. Otherwise it may have been a longer ordeal."
Cons: "The security measures for US bound flights made things more confusing for boarding. This wasn't the airline's responsibility, and the security check was fast and professional. Next time I hope they work better with the customers to make sure we know what is going on. But this is a small complaint on my part."
Pros: "Food was good Crew members were good Washroom were clean Smooth flight Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Crew were excellent, taking the time to introduce themselves and always responding promptly to requests"
Cons: "Service at times seemed a little disorganised. A minor issue though when compared to the overall service"
Pros: "Staff were superb from check in to landing. Service from MAN to HKG was impeccable."
Cons: "Seat was a touch faulty"
Pros: "You get what you paid for. We paid more for similar class than other airlines, and we spent less time waiting in checking line; generous legroom and shoulder room(Airbus350). Seat slides forward while reclines. It is a good thing that seat does not recline too much that it will annoy someone behine. Food was okay but you wouldn't get hungry."
Cons: "Need healthy food: less salt, whole wheat bread, more vegi."
Pros: "The crew was very organized. I travelled with a wheel chair assist friend, they made sure we were comfortable. We arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The food choices are well thought off. My only concern is the tenderness of the beef."
Pros: "The stewardesses were super helpful, quick to respond and the pilot even gave regular updates."
Cons: "Bumpy flight and the crew didn't really come around to check on what the passengers needed aka water etc."
Pros: "One of the better airlines for a reason, great overall"
Pros: "Great food and leg room"
Cons: "Did not leave enough time for a smooth transfer between flights"
Pros: "Excellent crew, great food, best steak I have ever had on a plane. Fantastic overall."
Pros: "Good service."

Pros: "Need more movie selection on classic"
Pros: "CX starts throwing out some old movies, it's nice to see some vintage from my kid age."
Cons: "How about some new Hollywood release please"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"
Cons: "I did not like paying more than the advertised price for my airline ticket... Straight after clicking the confirmation button , I received a call and was informed that the advertised price had increased by $50. It was still affordable so I agreed to this extra charge. Even after 24hours had past, the flight price had not changed online. I was lied to!"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific forgot to send paperwork for departure which resulted in 1 hour delay and then given us furthest possible gate on arrival in HK"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew, noticed I woke up and served me breakfast with only 45 mins till landing.. The flight was delayed and the airline had arranged for an escort to quickly get me to my next flight without even asking"
Cons: "The lack of content on the entertainment system, quickly ran out of movies to watch"
Pros: "Confort and service"
Cons: "The cushions were uncomfortable for a 14 hr trip. Not much choices in food. The omelette was bland."
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"
Cons: "Blankets were very thin, although clean felt reused. Headphones were poor which meant if Someone in a near seat was talking couldn't hear through my headset despite volume being turned up."
