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 .

Efficient courtesy as it was and should be On time

Plane was late and caused me to miss my return ferry crossing with my vehicle I was bringing to timaru

Pros: "You get what you pay for. Can't complain."
Pros: "The employees of Air New Zealand always make our trips excellent."
Cons: "I always have trouble hearing the announcements in the waiting areas at the airports. Why can't they (airports) fix that."
Cons: "Please have the option to order Kosher meal!! The 1st air company that I use, that don’t offer this basic service!! Ridiculous!!"
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: "Only a 25 minute flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment and board WiFi excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise, at least 200 m walking in the light rain, no previous warning."
Pros: ":)"
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: "Good quick flight"
Cons: "N/A"
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: "Nothing."
Cons: "Not being scammed on bag charges."
Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"
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."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "$80 baggage fees for luggage over 7 kg. I wasn’t aware of high price and luggage weight restriction until I was at airport"
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: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."
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: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."
Pros: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"
Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."
Pros: "Entertainment options were of great variety and easy to use"
Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"
Pros: "Although I'd like to see the seats upgraded to ones adjustable to lie flat seats without getting up and several steps, the crew on the Air New Zealand flights make the difference. What a PLEASANT experience. Great passenger service boarding to landing."
Cons: "Once made, the lie flat seats are extremely comfortable. However, it's a bit of a hassle to get the bed made. Also the seats don't offer as much privacy as seats on other carriers (AA, UA, LH etc). If they changed the seats, the airline can compete with any other, as the crews are superb."
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: "Food, entertainment especially on long trips"
Cons: "Not something that the airline could do, but I didn’t like that the person next to me was hogging 3 seats (both middle seats) when it’s etiquette to to the one just next to you. Like I said, something the airline can’t control."
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."
Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"
Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."
Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."
Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"
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: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."
Cons: "Captain's sense of humor."
Pros: "So many complimentary items such as food, drinks, and even alcohol. The most professional crew I've ever seen."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Not a problem, anywhere. For a long day, that is appreciated."
Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"
Cons: "Only issue was demand of passenger behind me that I not recline my seat back. I complied and chose not to bring it to crew's attention but was unable to travel comfortably for last leg of our 20+ hour trip."
Pros: "Free cookie!"
Cons: "I did not fly from Brisbane to Auckland"
Cons: "For a flagship airline, a in seat screen should be a given. This is not a budget airline."
Pros: "Thank for the great staff"
Cons: "The chicken dish was a disappointment q"
Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Crew was super kind and friendly. Food and beverages were good as well."

Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice. I got lucky and got the whole row to myself."
Cons: "More space in Economy, and to have the passenger in front lift up their seat during meals. It's very hard to eat with the tray down when the person in front has their seat reclined all the way back."
Pros: "Same as previous answer!"
Pros: "Suberb crew. Not obsequious, just helpful with good anticipation."
Pros: "Always an enjoyable flight with a happy crew and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alot of the check-in consoles were closed when we got to Brisbane which is the only way to check if you can't do it on line."
Pros: "Slightly wider seats"
Pros: "It got me from b to c"
Cons: "Significantly delayed hoarding for non technical reasons. Food was decidedly average. Seat pitch is just tolerable."
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Pros: "Seat comfort amenities crew"
Cons: "No vegan meal options"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "Qantas is a good reliable Airline, fleet of 747-400 getting a bit old. Too bad they will retire those costly planes as I have good memories going 20 times to Australia. Bring on the newer generation Boeing 787 dreamliners."
Cons: "Waiting at Brisbane Airport to fix the AC."
Pros: "Was traveling with my 1yr old and my in-laws. Crew could not have made it a more comfortable journey."
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Pros: "Qantas is always a great choice. Good food and service."
Cons: "Our bags were put on the wrong belt and we didn't receive them for over an hour."
Cons: "Flight delayed no updates in lounge then was rung to ask where i was as bostding closed. Told girl on phone on way bit thete was no flight status on tv in lounge... basically didnt believe me.. rude!!"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, after 5 hours of waiting for updates. So we are still stuck in Sydney."
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Cons: "i missed mt plane because i i forgot my passport!!!"
Pros: "Qantas provides a nice welcome when your board domestic flights in Australia like the one we took today between Brisbane and Sydney not just on their international flights. They greet you when you board, don't feel like a number like domestic flights in the USA be it American, Delta, United, or one of the others. They provide free premier movie access, serve a nice warm meal and drink, and make you feel welcomed - Keep up the great work Qantas, you could give the USA airlines lessons on how to treat passengers."
Cons: "Service was poor."
Cons: "Over all service was poor. TVs weren't working either."
Pros: "Service always attentive and genuine"
Cons: "Food was not as good as previous Qantas flights. Probably because it was catering to American crowd."
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, in flight entertainment was good, food was good"
Cons: "Nil."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight home. Had to wait at LA airport for 8 hours to catch another flight. Flight to sydney on August 26th was also 2 hours late leaving LA. My experience is not good."
Pros: "I like food and service of crew members"
Cons: "Yes I like it"
Pros: "I don't injure about anyone else but when I fly such long distances you get anxious over being cared for. Stewards were great, food was great and plenty of it. Anything you needed just let them online and they will accommodate"
Cons: "We were delayed due to wheel problems which ultimately affected my connecting flight. Missed the flight"
Pros: "Service and food was pretty good."
Cons: "Didn't care for the movie selection. Not much of a variety."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Good seats. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Qantas seems to be notorious late. This flight was no exception. The food was terrible. They called it a pulled pork sandwich. Jikes. Very crowded"
Pros: "Complimentary meals/snacks, socks, toothbrushes, eye masks, blankets and pillows"
Cons: "The wing in the Brisbane terminal had no charging stations and only two toilet stalls in the women's bathroom."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by one hour. Because I had to collect my carry-on bag, I missed my connection by 8 minutes. I was re-booked on another flight and was five hours late getting home"
Pros: "I loved the food and snacks and the endless selection of movies and music"
Cons: "Leg space could be a bit better. When people put there seat back the back of their head was right in my face and so I had to recline mine back Hahaha"
Pros: "Everything was on time with very good service."
Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."
Pros: "Surprised they served breakfast on short haul flight. Check in easy."
Cons: "Was seated in the center section and after getting settled and buckled in I kept smelling vomit and realized the seatbelt had dried vomit all over it. I couldn't get the flight attendant to help and finally got their attention and was told they couldn't do anything until after we were in the air. I was moved away from my family to another center seat. The flight had many open seats and we should have been kept together."
Pros: "Need new planes"
Cons: "Qantas didn't help at all with my missed domestic connection between LAX and ATL. Nothing."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Food taste was mediocre. Menu seemed to have a long list but delivered food did not match. No USB port or Electrical outlets to charge cell phones & Laptops."
Cons: "older aircraft"
Pros: "Qantas service was certainly up to standard."
Cons: "The 747 we flew was older and noisy. Our trip to Sydney from LAX was aboard an Airbus A-380 ... much quieter, roomier, and equipped with the latest technology."
Pros: "Qantus flights were great, really appretiated the extra care they took in ensuring we made our connecting flights after delays and then compensated us for American Airlines stuff up with our luggage."
Pros: "Quick and easy to board Overall everything was good Food was above average Crew were accommodating and friendly"
Cons: "Headphones poor quality"
Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"
