Pros: "Nicest crew on the planet. Restrooms stayed clean despite 12 hour flight"

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: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."

Cons: "Great flight. Would have been nice to have on board wifi."

Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"

Cons: "Terrible customer service."

Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"

Pros: "The gate agents and the gate supervisors were rude and condescending My reservation was changed mid air and even though I made it to the gate 18 to Houston on time and boarding was still in progress I was not allowed to board. I was informed a plane was not a bus that I could hop on anytime I liked. When I protested that I had a confirmed reservation I was calmly told. “We canceled it because we didn’t expect you to make it.”"
Cons: "I missed my Thanksgiving Holiday because some powers that be decided I would not be able to make a connection So instead of waiting to we if I missed it and rebook then, like a normal airline, they preemptively cancelled and denied boarding."

Pros: "The attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "One of the poorest meals I have had in 50 years of flying do not like the seating configuration in business class"

Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."

Pros: "My Dreamliner my seatmate the CREW! Flight attendant even made balloon for a little girl in shape of a dog!"
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "Food vegan was good on all sectors"
Cons: "The aisles are very narrow especially in economy hard for a older person to negotiate"

Pros: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."

Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."

Cons: "I double booked the flight on Nov 27 to Sydney from Queenstown through Kayak while I had another flight booked on the same date to Christchurch from Auckland for the same 2 people and Kayak did not warn me that I had already booked the flight on the 27th. It was my fault but I would appreciate if Kayak warned me. Otherwise all is good. Thanks"

Pros: "All the attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The hand cream and lip balm were excessively scented. I could tell when anyone in the cabin used it. The food was a little too fussy for my taste with trying to put 12 ingredients in one chicken dish."

Pros: "Had premium economy and on such a short flight is luxury. Boarding via the stairs as it's an island was good. Crew are always great. PE is pretty comfy on NZ. This was a day flight so we didn't sleep. Food was great. Great range of entertainment options but can't wait for Wifi!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cool temps in plane"

Pros: "The staff was nice."
Cons: "No room, It was painful for someone with nerve damage and severe arthritis to even get to a seat."

Cons: "Air NZ are, like everyone else, packing more people in a plane: 10 across in economy, where it used to be 8. No upgrade option I could exercise, even though I've got plenty of miles and do this trip every 6 months, because of the fare class I booked through Kayak."

Pros: "everythign aboht the trip was great"
