Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"
Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."
Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep.

Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."
Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"

Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"

Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."
Pros: "Excellent gluten free meal offered! I appreciate the extra effort with providing a gf bun and muffin with most meals!"

Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "The fact that our booking through Kayak did not record we had booked luggage. We KNOW we had booked luggage. Air NZ wanted to charge us $160 each bag. Eventually BYOJet got us through to Virgin who allowed us to buy luggage for $25 per bag. Thank you Virgin for your wonderful assistance 1 1/2 hours before departure. Virgin's standard ticket has 23kg luggage included. What is the problem with a ticket bought online through agents such as BYOJet and Kayak?"
Pros: "Really quite comfortable seat and space wise Good to see entertainment still in the back seat"

Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"
Cons: "Getting on and off the plane took some time, but doesn't it always? Economy class was slightly more comfortable than many other airlines, but nothing to write home about. Qatar Airways really shone in the food, the service (both onboard and off) and the entertainment. Good experience."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment choices."
Cons: "It was a long flight, frequent offers of snacks and drinks would’ve been great."
Cons: "The lounge, they use the club lounge in Boston which was so so. Could we have use the one world BA lounge instead?"

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
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: "Our flight attendants were all amazing, but especially Joanna!! She was outstanding and went above and beyond to assist us in every way possible!!"
Pros: "Crew and their promptness to assist"
Cons: "Vegetarian food - portion is too little. This has been the third time with Qatar and the food portion are too little."
Cons: "The changed the time of flight had to wait airport for 5 hrs"
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: "In my departure flight, there were many empty seats and the crew let us move to another seat to lay down and sleep. Also the food was very good and there was a great selection of movies."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, from the check in process, to boarding, to flying 21 hours from Boston to Phuket with infant- we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so accommodating and helpful as we traveled with our 7 month old a lot g distance."
Pros: "very courteous flight crew"
Cons: "baggage took along time to come business class luggage came after economy"
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."
Cons: "The Ground crews in boston airport were not accomodating."

Cons: "The website is not easy to navigate."
Pros: "Loved the food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough leg room and space between the chair in front."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Lovely flight, start to finish. Attentive staff (but not too much so) and seats were comfortable, even in economy. Smooth front and back end to travels as well."
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better."
Cons: "my flight from Boston to Doha was deleyed and Qatar Airways have no arrangements for the passengers at the airport, I spent more then 15 hours in the transit on those chairs, there was no help provided by the airline"
Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."
Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"
Pros: "the flight was smooth, comfortable and a lot faster than DOHA - BOSTON."
Cons: "I could not check myself online! so i could not select the best seat."
Pros: "Staffs were helpful!"
Cons: "Food portion can be improved."
Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Pros: "Always very hospitable and attentive crew."
Cons: "Love that Hawaiian offers quite a bit of food during flight, but there are no vegan options."
Cons: "Hawaiian airlines handling of canceling flights due to the virus was not good. They just canceled without notice or help on putting me on another flight home. JetBlue was amazing and took care of everything for me. If it wasn't for JetBlue notification of canceled flights, and a manager taking care of rebooking for me, I would not have made it home to Hawaii. Hawaiian airlines was no help at all"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable for a long flight"
Pros: "Crew was outstanding! Relaxed yet professional vibe"
Cons: "Online seat check in was confusing"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Ride was smooth. Plenty of food and entertainment. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "I was I could adjust the seat more . I was in flight 11 hours"
Pros: "The seat was great though I had to pay a lot to get the extra comfort. Not everyone is 5'5" and 30-40 yrs old and in perfect physical health"
Pros: "I loved that they still have meal service, especially since the flight is soooooo long! The crew was very nice and attentive, and the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "However, the food was meh. Whatever the noodle mushroom thing was... The noodles were over-cooked but the meal itself was just barely warmed. The sandwich later on was great, though, so I guess it's hit or miss. We also couldn't hear the crew's announcements at all. The sound system needs an update."
Pros: "Was surprised to have frequent snacks, fresh water rounds to keep from being dehydrated, pleasant attitudes, enjoyable safety videos that had a sense of humor and kept you watching, great music during wait times, seats in coach that reclined quite comfortably, nice pillows and fleece blankets."
Pros: "The crew was great, we were fed a lot, and even given a hot towel! Really loved Hawaiian Airlines service!"
Cons: "Only one crew member was friendly"
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "More comfortable seats and wifi"
Pros: "Nothing to note"

Pros: "9 hr flight, well taken care of by attendants and good timing... food, beverage and amenities."
Pros: "Flight included snacks and breakfast. Towards the end of the flight we were surprised by complimentary rum punch drink"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Four hour delay..."
Pros: "Great flight crew, very nice. Yummy food."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal."
Cons: "The food did not live up to the hype"
Pros: "I like biking through kayak. I just wished they could warm u.s but too book a1 way flight to NZ because your wasting money."
Cons: "I booked a 1 day trip not realizing I could only book a round trip tick to get in new Zealand. I almost missed my flight and had to book another 1 way trip.. wasting over $100 dollars. That ruined my flight exp."
Pros: "Smooth and. Pleasant, on schedule and nice crew"
Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food was terrible and my seat didn't recline which made for a very uncomfortable long trip"
Pros: "Crew was great. They didn't get upset if you needed to stand up and stretch your legs. After weeks of complaining, Hawaiin finally offered vegetarian meals on international flight. In flight movies were good but a little outdated. Seats were surprisingly comfy. Free headphones eyemask and earplugs. In seat phone charging."
Cons: "Crying babies! argh......"
Pros: "Very nice staff, very decent food (a little bit small, but tasty), good entertainment options, comfortable and quiet cabin"
Cons: "Was reassigned aisle seats with no explanation for both legs of my journey despite paying for window seats."
Pros: "Entertainment, comfort kits, and drinks were thoughtful. Staff extremely friendly. Food was better than most domestic airlines. Seats were large enough for comfortability during a long flight. Seats against walls still recline."
Cons: "Can't pick seats online for international flights, so we're stuck with whatever is leftover. Planes not particularly clean; lots of crevices with years of debris."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly. All movies were free. The staff was always so courteous. There was also adequate overhead storage."
Cons: "Hot lunch could have been better. The chicken was over cooked."
Pros: "Services, seats, and on time."
Cons: "The boarding was not organize."
Pros: "It is a 25 minute flight. It takes about 45 minutes of standing in line and shuffling around the overhead luggage before the flight takes off. So the flight is late. And gets to Kahului more than a half hour late. Then it takes 45 minutes to get the luggage. And since there is really no competition, Hawaiian Airlines couldn’t care less."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for the second meal for my girlfriend. It was just sandwiches, how hard is it to have a meatless option? For the first meal she simply ate around the chicken as no mention was made of a veg option, and the flight crew was so brusque and in a hurry it wasn’t possible to flag them down and inquire."
Pros: "I love that Hawaiian still gives you a meal for free."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the in-flight entertainment was pretty lame."
Pros: "Modern aircraft, clean plane, courteous attendants, well trained pilot, extremely smooth landing."
Cons: "Food was so, so. Good food helps pass the time on such long flights."
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and helpful! They interacted with passengers and made everyone feel comfortable. They didn't make you feel dumb for asking questions like a lot of other airlines do. Will definitely fly with Hawaiin again!"
Cons: "Everything was great. No complaints"
Cons: "I didn't like going to Honolulu to get to Kahului from Hilo."
Cons: "The service in the plane was non exsustance and no food or entertainment. The Hilo airport has no lounge and no good food or shopping."
Pros: "Loved the free guava-oj, real props for safety features, and friendly flight attendants. Smooth flight on time and comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and I appreciated the in-flight meal."
Pros: "Enjoyed staff"
Cons: "I can't tell you how disappointed I was to learn upon arrival in New Zealand, with no forewarning or preparation, that I was to be BUG SPRAYED before being allowed to leave the airplane. I have asthma. Being sprayed with chemicals is a serious health concern for anyone, but especially for those of us with asthma. They sprayed a cloud of chemicals directly over our heads and we sat helpless as the spray settled onto our clothes and skin and into our mouth and lungs. I had a asthma attack, and when I told the stewardess she looked at me and said "It won't be much longer." It was another 15 minutes. I was so unwell that I asked my husband if he would be able to carry me if I passed out. I also unfortunately forgot my ebook reader in the seat due to my attack. When I wrote customer service I received only "We will forward your message" and no response beyond that regarding the return of my device. This entire experience has caused me great distress and I am sincerely hopeful that as a corporation you will take steps to ensure the welfare of your customers by ensuring they are aware of all treatments to expect when on board your aircraft. Had I known, I could have brought a mask and saved my serious asthma attack. I probably would not also be without my ebook reader."
Pros: "Liked the onboard service and friendliness of attendants. In-flight meal--FREE by the way!--was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding area at Gate 58 in LAX was horrible. Gate agent didn't bother to control the passengers who unfortunately always crowd the gate. The PA system was way too soft."
Pros: "Clean comfortable plane , great service , and free food ?!?!! Not expecting anything like this , thought I was put in first class"
Cons: "No free entertainment available on a 5.5 hr flight. Touch display for movies didn't work very well."
Pros: "Supporting local airlines."
Cons: "Although "complimentary" meal, it does not cater to anyone with dietary restrictions/allergies. Only the in-flight snack was labeled with ingredients. I use quotes, because many people are willing to pay extra to fly Hawaiian Airlines, due to their "complimentary" meal. Flight attendants were less accommodating than I remember. They asked me to perform simple tasks that they usually have done as hosts. (I wouldn't have bothered to ask them for anything had I known they were going to give me instructions on how to go about helping myself)."
Pros: "Same as the other flight"
Pros: "The cleanliness. No chaos."
Pros: "The fact they were at least able to change our flights twice."
Cons: "While we were in the Hawaiian Airlines Plumeria lounge, they should've let us know that we were about to miss our flight. Especially with taking care of an 8 month of baby, sometimes you lose track of time. We missed the original flight even though we had asked the front desk agent to contact the gate to hold it for us for a few minutes. When we arrived at the gate, the ramp had already been retracted so we missed our flight. Next flight was the next day so we had to rent another rental car, another night's hotel totaling an extra $200 in Waikiki. At least they changed my flight without fees. But overall a bad experience."
Cons: "You have the odacity to charge for entertainment on a trans-pacific flight. Your crew members did a poor job of redirecting the travelers-- they were constantly ignoring the seatbelt sign and were standing during landing."
Cons: "choice of movies was very limited"
Cons: "Have to pay to watch TV and/or Movies Have to pay for a pillow and/or blanket Have to pay for headphones"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Hot, bad food, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Flexible schedule"
Pros: "The crew was good, not much as it was a red eye, but they were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Economy seating is extremely narrow!"
Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."
Cons: "All services throughout the process need to be improved from the ground to on board"
Pros: "Hardware was excellent. One of the most comfortable First Class seats for sure."
Cons: "CX first class is designed more for individual travelers so for couples who want to sit beside one another there will be an aisle in between them. The Boston BA lounge is horrific and depressing so it should be avoided."
Pros: "The crew was great. They were very quick to respond to any requests and were very accommodating."
Pros: "CX crews are professional as they are very customer oriented"
Cons: "The ground services in Melbourne airport was really bad! Chaotic arrangements for boarding and especially unpleasant staffs!"
Pros: "The crew carefull and the seat comfort"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific should be open direct rounte from SGN to MEL"
Pros: "Yup all gud"
Cons: "All gud"
Pros: "Everything, thank you. See you next time. The best airplane"
Pros: "The crew was excellent...very flexible with meal service and appropriate presence during the long 14 hour flight."
Cons: "Quality of movie options not very good."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Second time in less than two years and satisfied on both trips. Good work Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Flight attendant was very kind and helpful. I was very tired and was feeling a little under the weather. She checked in with me frequently throughout the flight to make sure I was well, brought me hot water to sip on, and just made sure I was as comfortable as possible. My regret is that I didn’t catch her name."
Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"
Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"
Cons: "Delayed flights and food service suck"
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: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Pros: "Better crew today vs.my jfk to hkg flight"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "I traveled this time with my wife and 8 year old twin daughters. For the long haul flight from Boston to HongKong, they let all families with children (including us) board earlier, which not all airlines do, and which was much appreciated. It wasn't as big of a deal for the HongKong to Taipei puddle jumper. Crew was very attentive, responding rapidly to calls and rebooting the entertainment system when needed. They were also quick with providing water and ramen noodles when we needed them. Seats were OK, a little short on leg room on the 777, better on the Airbus 350's. In flight entertainment options were very good for the adults, decent for the kids (they seemed to be struggling to find things to watch)."
Cons: "Food options are disappointing. The congee breakfasts have insipid, watery rice and dull flavored savories, and the sausage-and-egg breakfasts aren't much better. Dinner options were also disappointing, with so-so pepper beef and chicken that was not much past good. Snack options mid-flight were OK; they were generous with potato chips, caramel popcorn, chocolate and cookies, but the apples were mealy and there wasn't much in the way of healthy snack options."
Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Pros: "Food great, smooth flight. Helpful stewardess. Fairly comfy seats"
Pros: "The excellent service offered by the Cabin Manager, Amy and her team. They cared about the needs of the passengers in the 15-hr long flight and responded quickly to requests raised by passengers."
Pros: "very accommodating, I don,t know that hand carry bags changed to smaller size now, they helped me checked it in for free. I travel to the Phillippines every year ,I will fly w/ Cathay Pacific from now on. THANK YOU"
Pros: "I was put on an earlier flight as they had a window seat available. Leg room was good, and the food and movie offer was better than last time."
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: "I flew from NY to Phuket via Cathay Pacific which is a 22 hr flight! The crew was pleasant and friendly and took excellent care of my family and I. I would fly with them again anytime."
Cons: "My only complaint, if I have to make any suggestions would be more leg room."
Cons: "I requested special meal It wasn’t good and I got the food poison which make me sick."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "The crew is excellent. Travelling with baby and they take care of us attentively"
Cons: "Delayed 30min in the end."
Pros: "Flight Attendant gave us good excuse!!"
Cons: "Bad service and cheap food."
Cons: "I remember Cathay pacific having nice planes, but I guess things have changed. Plane, bathrooms, everything was downright dirty. Basically the only thing Cathay Pacific has going for it is direct LAX to HK, but that's it. I will try to avoid Cathay in the future"
Pros: "Very professional and attentive, also thoroughly enjoyed the food provided."
Cons: "Ah there was a lot of crying babies, but that isn't the airlines fault"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "The crew. I will never fly with this airline again"
Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Nice crews eating for a big guy."
Pros: "There wasn't much to note. uneventful and ok service"
Cons: "There wasn't much to complain"
Cons: "I lost all my bags. FIXED IT"
Pros: "Hospitality was good. PRO was excellent."
Cons: "Jain Vegetarian Food was not satisfactory. It requires improvement."
Cons: "Delayed from boarding at 1 am until 5 am when they finally announced it was cancelled. They made announcement updates every 10 minutes meaning that people had to be constantly alert to see if anything changed in the next 10 minutes. When the flight was cancelled, the employees could not offer any information about how to get ticket prices refunded, or how to get to the destination. They could not even connect passengers to the managers because the managers are in Hong Kong. The number they gave out to passengers for customer services could not be reached because this it is an international number. People had to miss connecting flights, meetings, important appointments, and are still trying to figure out how to get refunded for an expensive flight. Terrible experience and customer service."
Pros: "Midnight flight, so did not request anything. Normal."
Cons: "Was informed flight delay after we've reached airport for check in. Which is 1 1/2 earlier from departure time. Should have inform earlier. New scheduled time 2.05am, but can only board at 2.10am, so flight timing delayed beyond 2.05am."
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"
Pros: "The crew are very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Wish they would improve the food, the bathroom, and the cleanness of blanket and pillow please. It was such long flights from Boston to Hong Kong round trip to stuck in there. The quality and hygiene are important."
Pros: "Got upgraded to business BOS - HKG. Very nice!! Nice new feeling 777 also."
Pros: "The seats (in business) were wonderful and made it easy to sleep. As I wanted to sleep, I did not access the entertainment system. The staff was great."
Cons: "The food was ok for airplane, but really expected a little better."
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
Pros: "The service was amazing & the attendants were so attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "No complaints, whatsoever."
Pros: "The airconditioned lounge and shower for business class after sweating in line through security. Lay flat seats."
Cons: "Headsets had a weird jack and weren’t noise cancelling, wish it left a couple hours earlier, and for some reason, my feet kept bottoming out in the footwell but I wasn’t fully reckoned."
Pros: "Totally reasonably way to fly to tahiti. It seems like a well run airline."
Pros: "Liked the tahitian atmosphere on the plane."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and hurt my back."
Cons: "Legroom is tight and narrow..smaller than your average space in coach."
Cons: "I have purchased the priority pass but it didn't work. Was very disappointed. I could have saved money by not purchasing it."

Pros: "The entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was astonishingly good. I really was amazed with the whole crew sense of service and kindness."
Cons: "Hard to say.. really"
Pros: "Would definitely fly Ait Tahiti Nu again."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "comfortable seats and the flight attendants were friendly. Check in was smooth considering that there were 2 flights leaving within 20 minutes both bound for LA from Papeete."
Pros: "The attendants seem very happy to be where they were. Very friendly and helpful, everyone seemed in a great mood and happy to be with us. the only bad thing was they ran out of salmon before they got to us."
Pros: "They board back to front which saves a lot of hassle with overhead bags and such and keeps things moving. I appreciated that all the flight attendants spoke French and English and were very helpful when I needed anything. My flights to and from Tahiti were both smooth sailing. My flight back was a red eye and was quiet so I was able to sleep most of the way."
Cons: "Whoa. That food was TERRIBLE. I'm usually lenient with free airplane food but wow, I don't even know what some of it was. I my second meal looked like fish and turned out to be pork (I think?). They also only came around with the beverage cart once in the 8 hour flight (just before our first meal); I had to ring my call button to get water. The plane was pretty dated as well. I've seen worse but the screens were dated and all of the movies were fairly depressing. First, I'd suggest a couple more comedy's or rom-coms. Even a couple extra family friendly cartoons would be preferable to all the war/drama/dark options. Second, I'd suggest having the movies on demand rather than play one after another where passengers have to scroll through channels and keep catching movies part way through. A simple solution would be to have WiFi and streaming on flights which was also not available. This should be expected with international flight and would allow for on demand movies and music rather than the dated system currently in place."
Pros: "They provide blankets, eye patches for sleep, ear buds, and back pillows."
Cons: "The head phones aux jack for my seat didn’t work and couldn’t hear the movie. The seats caused aches and no leg room. Lack of air flow. Food wasn’t good either meal I didn’t eat. Economy for 8.5 hours isn’t a nice trip"
Cons: "Staff was not attentive in my cabin. English translation of instructions difficult to understand. Food was terrible. Bread was hard. Meal was inedible and not anything resembling breakfast. Cabin was freezing."
Pros: "They have definitely improved in the few years since I last flew with them. The food is still really good for airplane food. Also the service by flight attendants is friendly and attentive. The entertainment offered quite a few options as there were quite a number of movies if different genres and recent releases. I would definitely recommend them over some more expensive airlines."
Cons: "Location of terminal."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and food was good. The leg space was decent also, always an important factor for tall people on long flights"
Cons: "The boardin required a long walk to a remote terminal and then quit a long drive to the plane"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Seats very thin with little to no cushioning. Seats way too close so that when a seat reclines in front, you wind up almost chewing on the seat in front. My seat was broken and did not recline. Should receive some compensation for this"
Pros: "Safe arrival"
Cons: "40 minutes late boarding AFTER calling people to board; no apologies or explanations offered. Then a hot cabin, followed much later by lousy food. Most uncomfortable Airbus seats I've ever known. A few minutes of extreme turbulence was a bonus."
Pros: "Easy boarding in Bora Bora, & speedy arrival in Moorea"
Cons: "High cost to make any changes to a reservation"
Pros: "Nice crew. I liked the packers of socks, earbids and mask."
Cons: "The entertainment system was a little outdated. Movies should be on demand, and no tv was offered."
Pros: "seat in business class was fair to poor- unable to fully recline\ food was poor"
Cons: "seating and food"
Pros: "Comfortable airline, good food, friendly service. I would take it again."
Cons: "I don't know if this is representative but we were late both ways (2 hrs and 1 hr). Differently from other airline I've used to do this trip they don't go and offer water during the flight. You can go to get some drinks yourself of course but this is not always easy when your neighbor is sleeping."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "We waited in a shuttle for 30 minutes to be transported to the plane. We then had a three hour delay on the tarmac. Were not once offered water or refreshments during the 3-hour delay, and were only given two brief updates. During the 8 hour flight, refreshments were offered only twice. The food was ok - not terrible, not great. By the time they got to us (row 27), they didn’t have both meal options available. We took what we could get. And, all this after paying $1500 per person for our economy seats. I can fly LAX to Bali for 1/3 the price."
Pros: "great options for entertainment."
Cons: "The plane food was horrible."
Pros: "Old movies little choice"
Pros: "Coach is about par with other airlines of the same class. Food is acceptable. Service is efficient and the crew is pleasant. Decent legroom for me (5’5” tall). I was able to get 5-6 hours sleep on the overnight flight to LAX."
Cons: "Having to go outside and climb stairs to board. Food could have been better."
Pros: "I got I'll on the flight and the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "I really don't know as besides being sick I tried to get as much sleep as I could."
Pros: "N/C for food, head sets and in flight movies. Crew was very professional and pilot was excellent. I liked that they boarded the plane back to front. Makes more sense. Service was excellent!"
Cons: "Hard to board when everyone lines up and doesn't get out of the way for those to board whose seat numbers were called. The attendant started calling the next numbers before the first group had a chance to get through all the people waiting! You couldn't push thru the crowd because others in front of you were in the same predicament. People were asked to stay in their seats until their numbers were called but they didn't listen. We were an hour late taking off. Food was not very good and I'm not a picky eater. Rolls were hard as a rock and The eggs were uneatable. The lady in front of me reclined her seat all the way back and slept the whole flight so I was uncomfortable the whole way home and couldn't sleep. Her seat was resting on my knees. Very hard to eat off a tilted tray table. Seats very close together so hard to get to the remote."
Pros: "Being a redeye flight, they kept the plane dark for about 4 hours & didn't disturb us. The crew was friendly & professional."
Cons: "The terminal is not air-conditioned, just ceiling fans, so waiting to board was uncomfortable. We had no ability to select our seats so we had to take what they gave us."
Pros: "Frendly crew, drinks unlimited, and lovely time overall"
Pros: "Free movies rocks. Hawaiian air charges for them. Very good food"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the food wasn't good at all, because I was traveling with a cast on my left foot I asked for a front seat a week before my flight and when I asked at the counter at the airport they say that they wouldn't be able to give me a front seat, the lady at the counter wasn't nice at all, she didn't help and it felt that she wasn't trying to help me or to manege any other solution."
Pros: "Very kind and helping crew ! Love they positive attitude and energy"
Cons: "Food need to be improve - especially for people who don't like or eat meat"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Staff was VERY rude, seats are uncomfortable. Inside the plane is FREEZING cold. Food was ok-"
Pros: "Plentiful blankets, pillow, headphones and earplugs. Food and drink readily available."
Cons: "Seats are too small/narrow with little leg room for a 6' person. I was seated in 45A, the last row against the window. The seat backs do not recline yet, the seats in front of us so so, we end up with the guy ahead of my in my lap with zero leg room as my knees were pressed down by the reclined passenger in front of me. Very uncomfortable to not be able to move for 8 hours!!!!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "The seat was uncomfortable. The staff was not friendly. They were serving food and did not let me pass to get back to my seat. And they did not bother to leave any food for me. The movie selection was limited."
Cons: "It had to be the worse experience ever."
Pros: "It was a very easy and fast check in. The service was super nice, beautiful and very professional."
Cons: "That the flight was over already"
Pros: "The price was good, the service was excellent. The food was good and generous. We didn't have to wait in any lines for getting our boarding pass or checking bags. It was a very quick process. The entertainment was good but I have had a few more selections from other carriers. It was certainly enough to keep one occupied."
Cons: "Can't think of any negatives."
Cons: "No movieson demand"
Pros: "Loved that there was a blanket and pillow provided, that they also provided headphones, earplugs, and a sleep mask, and that they served food and wine."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly positive, helpful, and cheerful."
Cons: "There were very few movie choices compared to similar flights with other airlines"
Cons: "Air Tahiti Nui does not have online seat assignment. You have to call to get a seat assignment. total waste of time. Secondly there is no way to check arrival info online in Tahiti. You have to call the airport."
Pros: "Crew service was great- friendly."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. So much hardware underneath some there is compromised leg room. Terrible hot food- breakfast in particular."
Pros: "Everything in our business class seats were wonderful. Loved to be able to elevate my legs. Watched movies, ate wonderful food creatively designed. Staff went above and beyond.No crying babies!"
Cons: "The beds did not lay flat to sleep, making it hard to sleep on your sides. Please convert them to lie totally flat like Singapore air or British airways. The champagne was a bit bitter. The only champagne I've ever liked was on Singapore airs business class to frankfurt, germany."
Pros: "My wife and I have planned a trip to Bora-Bora since we got married in the 80s. I had said that I would not make that long trip without a first class ticket and followed through with this our recent trip. Although the ticket was quite expensive, it was worth every penny. Air Tahiti Nui really understands what "First Class" should be like -they pamper you! They deliver course after course of amazingly good quality food and more drinks than you can possibly consume. All of the flight attendants were sincerely interested in making sure we were all happy...a wonderful experience! darn worth the investment! highly recommended! And remember, this is just the lead-up to arriving in Tahiti; things will only get better when you disembark."
Cons: "There were NO disappointments"
Pros: "My bag was destroyed, and I was told I had to check my back pack in which was BS n was charged $100 to check it in... getting in contact with customer service about the issue is impossible. The crews customer service was satisfactory, you can tell they don't want to be there. I will never fly them again."
Cons: "It got me to my destination in peace."
Pros: "According to our reservation we had seat assignments (not marked seat requested) but when we checked in they assigned us seats in the back of the plane. When we showed theconfirmation and seat assignments they checked and said a family with children has priority so they gave our 2 seats to them. However when we got on the plane we saw that it was not a family but 2 separate individuals. Not sure why they got our seats but it obviously was not because of a child. Another flight with them several days earlier we also got our seats reassigned but the flight confirmation on that leg said seats requested so when they reassigned us we could justify the airline thought that request is different than assigned."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Flight was empty."
Cons: "It was freezing. I was wearing long pants, two sweat haired, and two blankets and I was still cold. The movies were not great. The headrests were super uncomfortable."
