Pros: "Only a 25 minute flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew"

Pros: "The crew on air New Zealand was absolutely amazing. Amazing customer service, makes me always want to fly with air New Zealand."
Cons: "I had no heads up that New Zealand required an app downloaded and a government check before you can travel to New Zealand. Because of this, I had to download the app at the airport, and because it can take up to 72 hours for the NZ gov to approve your app, I almost missed my flight. Would have appreciated 72 hours notice of this new rule."

Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"

Cons: "Breakfast was not tasty. Options could have been better."

Pros: "The space!"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Had to cancel trip because a passenger was hit by a car one week before the trip. Refused a refund by the airline."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good"

Pros: "Crew were great!"

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

Pros: "The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible."

Pros: "Nice, short flight. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two very large women. Couldn't be helped, was a full flight."

Pros: "Seat hard on older aircraft, needs new cushioning on seat"

Pros: "Short flight. No problems."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"

Pros: "Very friendly ground service staff member, lovely to be transferred to an earlier flight and my seating request was granted, flight service was also excellent."

Pros: "My first experience in business class"

Cons: "Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount."

Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"

Pros: "A whole season of New Girl!"
Cons: "Was very crammed."

Cons: "No enough blankets when feeling cold"

Pros: "Punctual flight, great boarding and great baggage service."
Cons: "Bag drop could be improved with more personnel to help."

Pros: "Staff were always happy and friendly"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"

Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "The departure was 20 minutes late (not too much), which delayed the arrival in NZ by the same amount."

Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"

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

Cons: "The plane was delayed for more than one hour which we did not have sufficient time for transfer to LA. We have to run instead of walking."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "Inflight service and all round experience with Air New Zealand was excellent"
Cons: "Aircraft cabin way too hot on both jouneys"

Pros: "Staff were lovely and food good ."
Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."

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,"

Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"

Pros: "I never doubt Air NZ , overall Ok ."
Cons: "this flight bit noisy, and felt dirty toilet ..anyway,,, I Like Air NZ .Hope good next time"

Pros: "this is Second times to use Air NZ to go to LA. before flight, they found technical problem, but ok .. nothing happen . Ground saffs helped us before on board . hope to use again ."
Cons: "generally nothing"

Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."

Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"

Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."

Pros: "The service was excellent. The food was wonderful and the cabin very comfortable."

Pros: "Cree"
Cons: "Cold flight Food average at best Overall nothing flash and nothing bad solid average"

Pros: "Very friendly ticket counter staff and flight crew."
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak on Virgin Australia, but found out it was a codeshare on Air New Zealand. No where during booking did it show we would be charged for 1 checked bag a piece. Got to the airport and Air New Zealand was going to charge 134 AUD for each checked bag. Fortunately, they recommended going to the Virgin Australia counter to see if they could add a checked bag to our ticket. The nice people at Virgin used an online code to give us a discount so we only paid 25 AUD a bag. Thanks a lot for the heads up Kayak. We will book direct next time to avoid surprises. Also, almost all movies on Air New Zealand were an extra charge, and the only drinks offered for free on a 3 hour flight were coffee, tea, and water - no soft drinks."

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: "Air NZwas a good carrier"
Cons: "Kayak to Virgin Australia to Air NZ - we had a long layover and surprised by 0 bag check in and very expensive charge, When asking for help all told to go to the other : for earlier flight - huge charges - no help : bags - no help and we paid onerous amounts. All bad and with lots of frustration trying to get help."

Cons: "Set seats for 2 middle of 4 middle row E & F seatsw"

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: "Service"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."

Pros: "The crew could be less curt and more engaging. Coming from Guest Services in hospitality, leisure and tourism it is obvious that body language and sincere engagement stands out. That wasn’t the case for the Qantas flight."
Cons: "I was unable to checkin or select seats. Understandably this is governed by immigration laws and not airlines but on three attempts I was able to pay for the seats without a receipt only to learn later that the charge did not go through. A little bit of transparency never costs anyone."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too small, and touch panel reaction is so late."

Pros: "It was a routine flight and everything was OK but not fantastic"
Cons: "Some of the food served was quite bad .... other options were pretty good"

Pros: "Service, food entertainment and catching up the lost time"

Pros: "Crew were nice and entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Flight was 1hr 40 minutes late and had to catch a bus to the end of the airport to even board. As well as shared terminal gates..."

Cons: "Unfortunately the flight could not be shorter. Otherwise a perfect flight, and well worth the price."

Pros: "New screens new seats and very modern"
Cons: "Flight delay could’ve been shorter."

Pros: "staff were nice"
Cons: "-priority boarding isn’t priority -only vegetarian food"

Pros: "Great experience - love travelling Qantas on International flights"

Pros: "crew was very nice"
Cons: "entertainment system malfunction needed a long time to reboot"

Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "Meal for children first"

Cons: "Very good airlines"

Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"

Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."

Cons: "Delays due to storms slowed our departure and made the boarding process a little confusing"

Pros: "It is always a good flight with Qantas,great staff are friendly and helpful for me and all passengers.like watching the movies,meals are good quality.You are updated with what is going on as you fly."
Cons: "A twenty minute delay on landing and was raining in Bangkok but that is ok."

Pros: "The view"
Cons: "Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit. It felt more like a cheap budget airline not ‘the spirit of australia’ as branded. The touch screen was so bad that you forced the persons head in front to move when you pressed the screen."

Pros: "Flight departed slightly late but arrived on time. Great movies to choose from. They gave you little kits that had a sleep mask, toothbrush and toothpaste, and ear plugs. The food and drinks available were good. There was a USB and outlet for charging."
Cons: "My husband’s screen didn’t work for watching movies and his seat did not recline, but mine did."

Pros: "It was my first A380 flight, and overall I was disappointed relative to the Dreamliner. Yet it stands out as a positive the way that Qantas has configured business class on the upper deck. It's quite peaceful. The staff was pleasant, but could have been more attentive. It felt like some cared and others did not."
Cons: "I have flown millions of miles with Qantas, but it's been more than 10 years since my last flights. My expectations were high and i the end I only felt "OK" about the experience. The seats are not competitive with other business classes in the sky. I realize that is about to change. I flew Air Canada into Australia, and while my seat was unfortunately broken, the capabilities and overall comfort of their seats is far superior to Qantas. The business class lounge in Sydney had very poor food options in my opinion, and I was quite peckish after having skipped lunch to travel to the airport for a 4pm flight. The food options on the flight were much better, though overall options / taste were just OK."

Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."

Pros: "Crew fantastic, food was delicious, boarding efficient - but they use a 737 on this leisure route which is a bit arduous for what is a 6+ hour flight."
Cons: "Use of 737 and lacklustre entertainment system compared to A330"

Cons: "Never went, why would you not know that?"

Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment pathetic. Seats bad Time to retire plane.."

Pros: "Crews in flight are friendly Meals are decent Movie collection in flight are plenty"
Cons: "Can't check in via mobile app nor kiosk in airport Still using 747. The plane could be made in 70s? 80s?"

Pros: "Both planes were clean service was good"
Cons: "Both flights delayed"

Pros: "The staff were great but the wait time on calling quantas is ridiculous, check in on an old machine is slow etc"
Cons: "requested an aisle seat online and was not given one. I requested vegetarian meals but was automatically served up dead animals as food so had to keep requesting vegetarian food everytime food was offered. Rather that checking in with an actual human I was directed to a slow and time consuming check in machine."

Pros: "Excellet service. I liked where I seat that was very much appreciated. Its nice to have delightful meal and having bottle of water in seat pocket was a nice thought. Boarding was excelent. It was called section by section. Cabin crew were very friendly and attentive. I always like to fly with Qantas"
Cons: "What I don’t like is always late in boarding... But having said never be late in arrival. Always arrived in time .."

Pros: "Great service, flight was not packed and had an exit row to myself."
Cons: "Delayed by a half hour. Better than the 2 hours the last time I took this flight 3 weeks ago."

Pros: "Roomy, boarding was efficient, clean"
Cons: "some crew member favoring, service attitude"

Pros: "Overall a comfortable way to travel."
Cons: "For flying business the food was awful; the person sitting next to me actually sent his meal back it was so bad. They had a relatively pedestrian menu, but were unable to deliver. The steak was overcooked and grey throughout, prawn starter was tasteless and bland, and panna cotta was overly sweet and weirdly goopy. The dinner options were so uninspiring that I skipped. I understand that it's airline food - but don't offer it if you can't at least make it slightly acceptable.... The staff was a bit all over the place and slow - it seems like having the flight at capacity was too much for them to handle. The sets in business are really starting to show their age and need a really need a steam clean."

Pros: "Great crew, meals were good."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."

Pros: "Crew were pleasant and engaging"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"

Pros: "Comfortable chairs."
Cons: "With an almost 3 hour delay the lack of information from Qantas staff was infuriating and we were held in what felt like a ‘holding pen’"

Pros: "I didn't eat dinner as I was too tired, but the breakfast was good and dinner looked pretty good. For airline food, that is. The staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "I previously flew Tokyo to Sydney premium economy on Japan Air and that created expectations. This was significantly worse. The seats were not as comfortable or as spacious. On JL, you have a bit of a barrier between you and the person in the next seat. On Qantas, you very much do not. While this is probably more just bad luck than anything else, the boarding experience was nightmarish with swarms of people blocking every passage."

Pros: "Flew over the Antarctic! Had an empty seat next to me Looking out of the window Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Not offered a drink until I asked on both meal services. 2hr late departing due to airport congestion due to to Qantas over Sydney centric focus. Food was good but maybe a bit sparse Evidence of of cost cutting. Long flight (14hrs)"

Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"

Pros: "Seat so small , lack of back support and cushioning"
Cons: "Seat is so uncomfortable. For the 6 hr trip need a back adjustment for such a cramped environment. Need review my future travel on Qantas"

Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."

Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."

Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"

Pros: "Nothing. The very best parts were still mediocre"
Cons: "This flight was so uncomfortable. The seats were small, hard and crammed together. Qantas should be ashamed of making people deal with that on a 13+ hour flight. They kept waking us all up and in general staff could provide little"

Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

Cons: "Lack of ipads for inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Crew on board were nice and helpful."
Cons: "No boarding announcements at Sydney airport. Food selections ran out."

Pros: "The service was very friendly, proactive and helpful. Got to fly in an A380 and I got a whole row to myself. the cabin crew were extremely attentive."
Cons: "The menu said we would get a weiss bar (amazingly delicious mango ice cream) on the menu and we didn't get one!"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Angle lie seats. Controls for seating and entertainment fidgety"

Cons: "No any explanation to delayed about 2 hours that resulted in missing the connected flight for more than 10 hours."

Pros: "Close to two hours delay leaving Australia"

Pros: "The crew in the ground and plane were very accommodating for Sydney to New York flight."
Cons: "On the flight from New York to Sydney the crew were rude and indifferent to needs even condescending."

Pros: "The food and service were excellent!"
