Once I was on the plain it was excellent When I checked I. I didn’t think it is Proffesional to call someone’s name on the intercom and change their seats without even letting them know why ! I could not check in online - WHY we live in a first world country . I couldn’t pick my seat - also why? Train your staff to ASKED customers if it is ok to change their seats just before a flight. It was dishonest to ask my passport , take my boarding pass and print a new one and hoping I wouldn’t see . When I saw what is busy to happen I was VERY upset. I said “ Are you changing my seat number?” Only then they said yes . What’s up with that . If it wasn’t for the experience and incident I would have give AIR New Zealand a 5 star rating . But now I have to warn my American friend to reconsider flying Air NZ .

Cons: "Waited 55 minutes for baggage claim in Auckland. No reason given. I expect better service from Air New Zealand even though I understand the baggage handler’s are different group"
Pros: "You get what you pay for. Can't complain."
Pros: "Great crew and counter staffing. Only took about 10 minutes to get my ticket and half of that was due to some snag with the NZ visa details."
Pros: "Entertainment and board WiFi excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise, at least 200 m walking in the light rain, no previous warning."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the food as always and overall, I felt very comfortable"
Cons: "I enjoyed my experience overall."
Cons: "Breakfast was not tasty. Options could have been better."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, very hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "The seating in economy class is abysmal. The seats are extremely small and the rows are to close together. There is no leg room. The seat cushioning is almost nonexistent. It's like sitting and leaning back on a board. On this last trip I had a window seat. I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs."
Pros: "Sat in business class pods. Best flights we’ve ever taken !"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Business class lay-flat seats and a private cubby."
Cons: "Boarding required a bus ride to a distant terminal rather than direct boarding from the terminal."
Pros: "The space!"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew was okay. Nothing special but not bad."
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work! Don’t advertise it if it is not working. Even setting it up is far too much work/confusing."
Pros: "Can’t remember"
Cons: "Food selection specially for vegetarian"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Not being scammed on bag charges."
Pros: "New Zealand Air staff were friendly, informative and courteous throughout the entire flight! I was floored by their service and by what was offered. They even worked to arrange for people to move around (some were packed 4 to a row, but there was plenty of space throughout the craft)."
Pros: "The crew, the entertainment, the cleanliness and the overall experience was lovely"
Cons: "Lights could have gone fully off during a red eye international for sleeping."
Pros: "Upgrading to Skycoach giving extra leg room was well worth it."
Pros: "slightly more roomy than most carriers"
Cons: "since it was a Friday during Lent, there could have been non-meat options on the meals. One lunch and one supper offered only chicken and beef both times."
Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it."
Cons: "Superb airline"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "Crew did a very good job"
Cons: "Trip was the roughest I have ever been on for virtually the entire time. Could not sleep. Business class cabin was also had the most noise of any front of airplane experience I have had."

Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"
Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"
Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"
Pros: "Good selection of movies I thought."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 50 mins. Missed my connecting flight from Auckland, so had to spend 3 hours at the airport. A voucher for internet access would’ve been nice."
Pros: "Air New Zealand was great, plane comfortable and the crew very nice"
Cons: "$120 to check my 12kg bag! I was outraged! Was sold a ticket that included nothing but a seat and virgin and air new Zealand were not helpful. Kayak should have been more transparent about this exhorbitant fee! I plan to raise a stink when I get back to the states. Was shocked and had no other choose but to pay!"
Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."
Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Attendants were friendly. The agent at the gate rerouted my flight after my initial flight was delayed. She explained she did that so that I could make my international connection in time."
Pros: "There was so much I loved, but what really stood out was the mood was set from the beginning....music, lighting, and the welcome message on the screens that were personalized for passengers. Great food and the friendliest airline crew ever. I also loved the safety video....it wasn't boring even though I knew to he information."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the middle row, but even then....I couldn't complain.....most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Allowed us to change seats within our section for more comfort. Good food. Loves the USB outlet at our seats."
Cons: "Seats near bathroom were very noisy"
Pros: "Really great service from the flight crews - smiley, polite and we were served drinks twice from a 2.5 hrs flight. Entertainment program was great with better leg space. Overall it was a pleasant experience! Thanks"
Cons: "No free movies"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."
Pros: "Food service"
Pros: "We were allowed to check one bag for free...that's awesome. And we were provided with two full meals on the flight, more food than we could eat. And even a complimentary alcoholic drink! Great selection of movies. New Zealand Air is one of the best flying experiences I've had"
Pros: "everything! Leg room, priority boarding even though we boarded close to last, snacks. That safe feeling :)"
Cons: "nothing!"
Cons: "the person next too me was overflowing in their seat so much they took up a quarter of my spot.. it was not work making the flight uncomfortable by making a stink about it but I paid for a whole seat not 3/4 of one!"
Cons: "I was not able to pay for excess luggage online because I was told that I had to do it 48 hours in advance. I did not know I need and extra bag until the day before i left. So instead of paying the 1 dollar promotional fee advertised online i have to pay 191 dollars at the airport. That is ridiclous."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, crew was nice, flight was very smooth"
Cons: "Took forever to take off, but not company fault"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We flew premium economy. The staff was wonderful great first experience! I really wish the other three crews could have kept this momentum going as my other flights with ANZ were less than thrilling! The flight attendant staff was phenomenal on my iah to akl leg. My crew on the akl to iah leg. Brandon gave the initial intro and seemed to follow the original crews standards. Unfortunately, we had an older flight attendant who seemed less than thrilled to be with us this flight."
Cons: "I wish I could give a true rating of ANZ as their crews apparently don't follow any protocol for providing the same exceptional service received on my maiden flight with them."
Pros: "Watching movies made flt not being go by faster"
Cons: "Not being able to just order a beer....yes, I did on screen but still was not able to buy cuz said service was closed. This after flt attendant told me to use screen to order n pay. She eventually just gave it to me after trying to do it herself unsuccessfully."
Pros: "It was s safe flight."
Cons: "I didn't feel valued and appreciated. Poor options for complementary food service."
Cons: "Nobody believes in offering decent food anymore. Flying was so much better 25 yrs ago. Soon we will have to pay to use the toilet."

My experience at checkin counter at Amritsar airport was not good. The lady at the desk didn’t allow me to carry 1 kg extra in carry on trolley. In 15 years of flying experience with different airlines, trolly weight was checked for first time. Looks like Qatar Airways has different rules based on the countries.

Overbooked flight. My wife and I got split up. I have a replaced disk in my neck (kids behind me constantly kickin my seat) made for a painful and unpleasant flight. (Staff did nothing to prevent this)

Food should be supplied as per request. One meal option they are giving as per passenger request either vegetarian or non vegetarian. When real vegetarian people get to choose by that time all vegetarian meals are finished. Entertainment telugu movie collection is very poor. When 90% passengers are Telugu speaking there are only 2 Telugu movies whereas other language selection is more. Movies number should be based on passenger destinations

It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights

I had a pleasant experience.

Very good service, all were ok/excellent

Pros: "crews are ok. but they run out chicken entre. awful."
Cons: "entertainment was poor. use remote control, really."
Pros: "The crew is very friendly and helpfu; the space between seats is noticeably larger than usual"
Cons: "Good service and better than average let room and overall seat confirm, which is a big plus on long haul flights. Will definitely choose to fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Qatar airlines treated us like we were in first class the flight attendants were A+++"
Cons: "Everything was perfect other than the food was not so great i had stock ache the entire flight."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "The food didn’t necessarily agree with me but it tasted good and there was plenty of it."
Pros: "Yes. Pillow cushion too firm"
Cons: "Food needs to be better. Very inconvenient schedule for flights to India from Europe."
Pros: "So many carriers have cut back on so many things, our flight on Qatar Airlines felt like a throwback to the days when flying was enjoyable. Everything about our flight was better than we have come to expect from most other airlines. To highlight one surprise - the in-flight meals were high quality."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Food was good and so was the crew, entertainment was better than expected."
Cons: "Obviously the seat could have been roomier but still good."
Pros: "Amazing except for the entertainment it was horrible"
Cons: "Entertainment system , 6 hours flight without entertainment is tough"
Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "The crew were fab"
Pros: "Crew is so helping and attentive , not like american or european carriers . A350 was one of the best planes Inflight dining options in economy was like premium economy Entertainment system was too good"
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Non"
Pros: "Nothing much except for Hamad Airport ."
Cons: "Food . Seats. Entertainment - half the time , the touch screen doesn’t work."
Pros: "Boarding was great as well as comfort and crew. the flight was ok"
Cons: "however there was no internet and bad entertainment. You couldnt really navigate on Oryx One and it was hard to select the autoplay or map. There was no remote unlike the B787 between MAN and DOH. Pre-download things on laptops, tablets, phones or whatever ifyou are not going to sleep on the flight. It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("
Pros: "Caring service, good pod seats on A350 and airy cabin."
Pros: "The crew was very sweet and very helpful, especially to kids who were constantly thirsty or hungry."
Cons: "We were supposed to take the flight 8 hours earlier. I’m not sure flight with such short connections should be sold at all - with the previous flight being late 20 minutes, we were met at arrival gate by Qatar airlines employee that told us our connecting flight left without us. They helped us with everything onward- getting new boarding passses, hotel and meal vouchers, but all of this should not have been needed if such short connections were not sold."
Pros: "Stewards and Stewardess were very prompt and always had a smile!"
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"
Cons: "food quality is not very good: sometimes it was hard to see what it actually was and it tasted like that too. headrest in the new plane is not comfortable at all as it is rigid and can only be moved up and down."
Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"
Pros: "Loved the array of film choices. The food was lovely and the service was fabulous. Lovely warm blankets ."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Service, seats, beds, food, entertainment, EVERYTHING !!!"
Cons: "Thanks"
Pros: "Good service but need to improve food quality and quantity."
Pros: "Crew was courteous, plane was clean."
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre. Very limited legroom."
Pros: "crew servious and food quality."
Cons: "not so many Hollywood movie choices."
Pros: "Great flight with good food and crew."
Cons: "My flight was delayed almksr 3 hours...nothing more. It's very frustrating because the problem could have been avoided if they were more careful but oh well. I'm making this review very short compared to my others because I know that if I start on a rant, I won't stop. Trust me, I'll safe that for the phone call complaint I'll be making in a few hours..."
Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."
Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Flight. Conections"
Cons: "Change flexibility, helpfulness"
Pros: "The service during the flight was excellent, workers showed all kind of concern and care. Thank you."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "There were no headphones and again with the remote Oryx screen that is just way too complicated and freezes like crazy."
Pros: "The crew was great, trully world class service"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight without informing us from Doha to Miami, so they were going to fly us to Doha at 3 a.m., take us to hotel, and then have us fly the next day. This was the third time this airlines cancelled a flight on us for the same trip. The first two times were traveling from Miami to Delhi, we had to change our itinerary because they cancelled the flight, and we had to fly on different dates. This caused a series of hotel changes and cancellations costing us a lot of money. On the flight that we finally got from Doha to JFK, the man sitting next to me SMELLED LIFE THE FUNK OF 40,000 YEARS. It is unbearable. Thirteen hours of pungent body odor that even the flight attendants acknowledged was horrific. It was a miserable experience flying with this airline for what was to be the trip of a lifetime."
Pros: "The Cabin crew was amazing, the ICE entertainment has many options of movies and programs, the flight was smooth to Singapore."
Cons: "Keep the good work."
Pros: "Everything went very well. The staff were the nicest most helpful people ever. Great food too."
Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "The food, leg space, the drink, and more hospitality, specially towards the aged people like us."

Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Business class seems to have slipped..... A little more cramped and not quite as comfortable.... (might be me getting old"
Pros: "Seats weren’t all that comfortable."
Cons: "Service and meals were good."
Pros: "Good food friendly staff"
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Pros: "the crew are nice"
Cons: "food limited selection"
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Need a little more leg room. Staff made sure the toilets were clean."
Cons: "No footrest."
Pros: "A footrest would make the flight perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Legs got tired. Felt like lifting them up."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Pros: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."
Cons: "Very late. Caused us to miss outlet rental car. Left us stranded at the airport."
Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"
Pros: "The crew were excellent, very helpful and friendly. The most friendly crew I have flown with. Qantas could learn something from Emirates."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly. And, the amenities offered are superb."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "There was a long bus journey at the airport in Dubai for a flight from Dubai to Lahore. All passengers including myself were very surprised. When the bus stopped neat the air craft for boading, ground staff were seen collecing heavy hand carry luggage from the passengers for putting them in a separate compartment for taking as a cargo, which caused another delay in boading. Old air craft on this route should be replanced. Before boading from Dubai to Lahore, I checked my flight status several times on flight information screen but my flight was not shown on it. Later, I checked on hand touch screen and came to know that gate was B2."
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."
Pros: "Treated superbly!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"
Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"
Pros: "Staff were great. Food was good."
Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"
Pros: "Like everything"
Pros: "The crew were good and attentive but I couldn't help but feel they were hopelessly understaffed."
Cons: "Despite the size of the A380 seats have been crammed in so that there is no real difference in comfort between travelling on one of them or in a low cost airline such as Jetstar. Unless of course you can afford First or Business Class."
Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"
Cons: "Attitude of Emirates ground staff and crew. Compare to Emirates Singapore Airpines staff are more polite and helpful."
Pros: "Plenty of food provided, and crew is very friendly."
Cons: "When boarding at Brisbane Airport to fly back to Singapore, ground staff at the counter called out the boarding passes allocated from back rows to middle rows to start boarding; thereafter the remaining rows were never called out, so passengers like us holding front to middle row seats and following the rules naturally were left behind, at a disadvantage. In the end when not many passengers were left in the Queue, then we joined Q at the back to board."
Pros: "Variety and choice of media entertainment was excellent."
Pros: "Good seat size and space, very comfortable. Excellent entertainment."
Cons: "One food selection was good, another just plain bad."
Pros: "The A380 is a beautiful aircraft. Smooth and quiet. Great movie choices. Crew friendly and mostly efficient. Great value for money!"
Cons: "Confusion with wrong menus being handed out - on 2 flights!"

Ease of boarding. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good. In flight entertainment great.

Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."

Pros: "check in easy at Adelaide airport"
Cons: "The plane had small drop down screens every 4 or 5 rows which are totally inadequate for watching anything. gives no choice and poor sound quality (lag between vision and sound) Pork meal was some sort of tasteless slop in a cardboard box with rice and a green veg. It seem as if short flights are getting a raw deal with old planes and sub standard food, systems to save costs. If they cannot maintain a consistent level of standard across all their products let another provider in who can."

Pros: "Very enjoyable and comfortable flight"

The screen was small and not very clear to watch."
Pros: "The entertainment was excellent, there were so many choices to choose from, it made the long flight less stressful....The Boeing 777-300ER was smooth and quiet for a twin aisle plane of its size. Lavatory was clean most of the time"

Pros: "I wish I could say something, but I cant."
Cons: "Flight was initally delayed 1 1/2 hours to depart at 1:00am it happens. Upon boarding, I noticed the planes legroom was close to none. Within 10 minutes of being on the plane the power shut off, lights out, air flow cut off. Lights turn back on although air doesn't and the captain re assures 10-15 minutes. 2 1/2 hours yes 2 1/2 hours later he says 10-15 minutes again and says the same skit explaining they fixed the problem. Plane turned off again. At this time it was close to 5am and I chose to take my carry on and head towards the front of the plane. The captain has no answers for the alarmed passengers, in which all they could say is if we step off tge plane we choose to leave the flight. Almost in the tone of a threat. We were all fewring our safety for the 9 hour trek over the pacifac ocean. After going back and forth for about 45 mins they finally said if you dont feel comfortable follow me and we will try and locate later flights for you all. 60 of us left the plane and ultimately got flights 12-24 hours later. Horrible experience, horrible communication, no appologies, and on top of that they did not send my bag with the correcr plane, in which I had recieved it 4 days later. My replacement flight wqs on EVA air. Much better airline in which I will never travel with China Airlines ever again."
Pros: "Overall staff was pleasant. Food was ok. Leg room was pretty tight. For a short 3 hour flight it was bearable."

Cons: "The seats are very narrow and not much leg room."
Pros: "Need more movies and newer movies"
Pros: "Never rebooted entertainment after it shut off until we were ready to land and left it in boarding mode"
Pros: "That we were provided with seat belts."
Cons: "The level of uncomfortableness rivaled that of Spiritair. From friction burns on the knees from the seat directly in front of you, to virtually hosting your front neighbor's head in your lap when they recline. And I'm all of 5'8"! Even though easily +90% of the passengers were Americans, Australians, New Zealanders and Europeans, and that the flight was between 2 English speaking countries, we were addressed in Mandarin Chinese. Reminds me a bit of Air Canada with their often French bias."
Pros: "China Airlines has decent food menu and on-board entertainment. Overall a good flight experience."
Cons: "I just hated the frequent delays."
Pros: "Would recommend it!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed two hours and when we boarded we sat at the gate for 40 min and then sat waiting taxing on the runway for another 45 min. The flight became more than 3+ hours late in total."
Pros: "- Very helpful flight attendants - Surprisingly decent airline food"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "direct fight"
Cons: "rude passenger who refused to put down his arm rest in between us. the food was really bad. our seats got switch after airport check in."

Pros: "schedule was still on time inspite of airport deficiency."
Cons: "waited for an hour inside the plane for take-off due to damaged airport runway assigned seat had poor leg room as expected when you are in economy was not assigned a seat for connecting flight to LA until we reached Taipei's pre boarding area. when we did we got the last 2 rows in the plane - 71 D & E. Turbulence is more pronounced. My head was shaking"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Long delay."
Pros: "Cheap but much better than the Southern China airlines trip we took a couple of years ago. Airbus entertainment system worked, meals were hot, tea and beer flowed freely, seats were packed but not as tightly, restrooms stayed clean. Sit on the right side to enjoy views of Alaska and Japan coastlines and twilight fishing vessels."
Cons: "Would be nice to have pan/tilt/zoom on the front/down exterior camera feeds."
Pros: "777. Things I liked: On-board service was good. Food: OK, nothing to write home about. Onboard electrical and USB outlets nice!"
Cons: "Things I disliked: Boarding. I got my seat assignment weeks early, back of the plane and aisle, Boarding Zone 1. Check! Once at the gate, specialty groups boarded first (small children, first class). As the were boarding (LAX), the throngs lined up willy-nilly. The gate agents did not call for boarding by zones, all the passengers boarded together (mixed zones). This is a recipe for disaster. I was one of the last persons to board, and by the time I got to my seat (back of the plane), all the overhead bins were full (folks in the middle of the plane could not find overhead room, so they marched to the back and took my space). Had I boarded by zone (#1), I would have gotten to the back early. F/A's struggled greatly to get everyone's carryon stowed overhead, but a number of us had our carryons stowed many rows away from our seats. Also, the bins were so full, that they were dangerously heavy, and even the F/A's had to have help in closing them. Great! We were discouraged from opening the overheads in flight (near-constant turbulence). Great! Can't get at my stuff during the long night flight (its in a bin way in front of me, and we can't open the bins). Entertainment unit on the seatback. The system is fine, but its touch-screen, and my 'touch' screen was not accepting my inputs very well (had to touch them half a dozen times each). There is no remote control (handheld). Never watched anything, as we never were given headphones. Use your own headphone, you say? Where does that bad boy plug in, I say? That kind of thing should be explained in the pre-flight video, possibly. Blissfully I slept thru a good chunk of the flight."
