Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."
Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked.

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: "The usual "shuttle" flight between chc and akl."

Cons: "Cold air blasting for 8 hours."
Pros: "There was a blanket, pillow, and headphones on my seat when I arrived."

Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Everything was quite nice."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Extra leg room at front of plane."

Cons: "Boarding started a little later than scheduled."
Pros: "Awesome crew! Tasty food! Comfy seats!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment and two of the fight attendants were nice."
Cons: "I didn't care for the family that was surrounding us from all angles; they were constantly in and out of their seats visiting one another while pulling, kicking, and opening and closing the tray tables over and over again. I didn't care for one of the unpleasant flight attendants as well."
Cons: "departed to late .. nearly missed connecting Auck- Hong Kong. Suitcase was left behind .. will receive 498 hrs later .. not good enough"
Pros: "short flight made seats less inportant"
Cons: "not the seats I selected in October"
Pros: "Free cookie!"
Pros: "I was on flight nz10 from Auckland to hawaii 3/28th. Loved the crew, they got us on board quickly and we would have taken off on time but had to wait for 2 people showing up late. Anyway, it was a redeye so people slept for most of it and I watched movies and drank wine. The airplane was clean and bathroom were as well. It was a full flight so a little cramped."
Cons: "Using a 777 meant longer check in time and was much longer arrival time and baggage collection. Meant I was stuck in Auckland traffic because of the extra time"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Waiting for passengers and delaying our flight"
Pros: "I have not flown international in a long time. It was confortable and entertainment was great. The only thing I did not like is that with New Zealand air one can only check in 1 bag for free. We stayed in NZ for 18 days. The other airlines let you check in 2 bags. For an international flight 2 bags is only fair. Thanks."
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "Nothing"

No Tv

Singapore check-in was chaotic. On board, a very large oxygen bottle had been left for us. Too big to fit anywhere, or easily access the valves. We were assisted with boarding and disembarking, but never once approached during the flight. The crew were not helpful or friendly. On arrival at Sydney, our wheelchair and half our luggage had been lost. The wheelchair was later found, abandoned in the airport, despite the orange tag on it saying Return to Aircraft Door. As I write this 36 hours later, the luggage is still missing. Waiting time to call Luggage Services was 1 hour.

No music available on screen

Flight delayed. Food ok bordering on mediocre. Pleasant attendants.

MY travel plans were canceled and l tried thru KAYAK and Quantas to cancel this flight and was not able to confirm cancelation but still received flight boarding. l tried to get refunded thru Kayak and that has been horrible long unreasolved task now l am trying to go thru Credit card. with this Covid changing world, airlines and travel companies should be refundable especially since this is a Australian airlines. l am about to lose $1000.00.

Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Boarding time"
Cons: "Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight."
Pros: "Fantastic crew members who were very helpful with our infant."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Horrible check in process from Syd to Melb. Leaving No time to make flight Horrible transit through Melb - missed connecting flight back to sydney Overall not great"
Cons: "We boarded very late, and had no place to wait at the gate (it was locked off) and got no explanation. My headrest broke off midflight. There were no good vegetarian options on the flight, and the entertainment system was very old and hard to see."
Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "Meal for children first"
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for a 6’2” tall person."
Pros: "Lovely crew especially Heidi"
Cons: "Nothing, all was well"
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better"
Pros: "enjoyed the newer planes"
Cons: "less use of single use plastics. air canada could become a pioneer and use compostavle plastics or better yet the new paper box water bottles!"
Pros: "Very smooth, on time boarding. Food quality"
Cons: "The food is served on a tiny tray that only has room for the hot dish. Other items are piled on top. Recipe for items being dropped, getting crumbs everywhere and generally less comfortable eating experirnce. And stop using plastic cutlery!"
Pros: "Professional service.."
Cons: "Non.."
Pros: "Food was delicious and service excellent"
Cons: "Slow customs in Honolulu"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew were helpful and updated us on connections in Melbourne (although they wouldn't have needed to do this if the flight hadn't have left late)."
Cons: "Flight was late and this was significant as I had a tight connection in Melbourne. There did not seem to be a good reason it was late as the aircraft was already at Launceston. They just towed it to the gate late! No announcements were made as to the lateness of the flight until the departure time had actually passed."
Pros: "Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Confusion in boarding"
Pros: "The fresh fruit platter choice for breakfast"
Cons: "No fresh towels to wash hands & face before being served food"
Cons: "Our bags were put on the wrong belt and we didn't receive them for over an hour."

Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"
Cons: "Seat was quite uncomfortable for a long flight. Would be nice if the window arm rest could fold up."
Pros: "Temperature just right and pillows, blankets and better than average reclining seats"
Cons: "Food - too institutional. Bread over cooked, meats tough so couldn’t eat more than half of any meal."
Pros: "It was the day before Christmas and all the crew were friendly and happy to be at work (of service) from check in to cabin crew. Just lovely thank you."
Pros: "Some of the flight attendants were quite excellent. I appreciate that Qantas still makes available a toothbrush and muesli bars, tho the selection of in-flight snacks has been greatly reduced."
Cons: "Seating is far too tight - of course, Qantas is not the only one guilty of this. If there were a true emergency, evacuating the plane would be nightmarish under the "packed-in" scenario we are faced with these days."
Pros: "Not much. The movie selection was ok"
Cons: "How can an airline be worse than United. Ask Qantas because they cracked the code."
Cons: "I had pre-requested a seat and got moved when I arrived but I didn't notice so I couldn't ask to be reseated until I got on the plane and realized. I also found the crew to be blunt and not friendly."
Pros: "Very comfortable business class seat, great business lounge in Singapore."
Pros: "Crew on board were nice and helpful."
Cons: "No boarding announcements at Sydney airport. Food selections ran out."
Pros: "Impeccable service, food, and overall experience from the crew. It has always been a joy to fly Qantas, and I'm glad to see that is something that doesn't change."
Cons: "If you are going to travel with a little one, have the common decency to help your poor wife take care of them as well. You had three seats, the entire middle aisle, yet you decided to take the open seat next to me so they could lay down together. That was nice, I get it, sure. But if your baby is going to cry for hours (and hours, it was a 10.5 hour flight, that poor kid must have been exhausted), pause the movie for a minute, and maybe try to help. I don't mind being inconvenienced for the little ones, I'm a dad of 4 myself, I've traveled a lot and know how it goes. But jesus christ, she's your wife, that's your child, try taking care of them."
Pros: "Was bumped off fjight. Due to not being checked in by Jetstar. Crew was nice and put us on a later Hawaiian."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."
Pros: "Great service, great food"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Comfortable seat in coach on a long haul flight"
Cons: "Rude crew, sub par food, weird boarding process and ride boarding agent that kept my passport for an extended time, poor on flight entertainment aystwm"
Pros: "It seemed that being in seat 33, the crew kept forgetting to come back and get our rubbish. It seemed when they collected the rubbish, they were full at seat 32 row, come back and start at seat 34"
Pros: "Documentaries, food, wine, service, seats"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Everything was pretty good except the food could've been better.

Pros: "The aircraft is very new and comfortable! The boarding is orderly and well managed"
Cons: "Free wifi onboard!"
Pros: "Liked that I was heading to Fiji for some nice vacation"
Cons: "A lot could have been better, the crew and captain didn’t know the immigration procedures for the United States, both flights late. Then also entertainment was quite lacking on a 7 hour international flight."
Pros: "The crew was great. Food was good."
Cons: "They SERIOUSLY need to update the entertainment on the plane. If everyone has to watch the same movie, which prehistoric in itself, can they at least make a recent movie and not one from the 80's??? They played 2 movies, both from the 80's!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Checkin and gate crew were amazing! It was hard to hear the announcement on the intercom in Apia. Too sound was not clear and precise."
Pros: "Crew, food, drinks."
Cons: "More in flight entertainment options like movies to choose from."
Pros: "Very friendly crew..."

Pros: "Great food and drink..complimentary on Fiji Airlines. Economy class seats are bigger than all US airlines!"
Cons: "Late to board d in Fiji due to ‘ operational’ reasons? Late arrival into Honolulu. But overall good flight"
Pros: "crew very helpful"
Cons: "larger meal would be niice"
Pros: "Superb customer service It was my first time using Fiji Airways along with my children. We usually fly AirNZ or Emirates because they have everything I need. Now we have added a third airline to our list. My kids are also fussy with the airlines we use. But they really enjoyed their flight with Fiji airways."
Cons: "Food was average and I could not put my seat back slightly."
Pros: "Friendly people nice plane"
Cons: "Had a good flight comfortable seat and the food was quite good smooth running everything on time"
Pros: "I traveled with my 4 children and my husband. Out of Honolulu the flight is scheduled very late so i had extemely exhausted children. The gate agents were so very helpful and so compassionate, especially because my 4 month old baby was crying. They stepped up and helped me with my other kids as my husband was out looking for water to make a bottle for him. Awesome awesome service! The crew was very nice and helpful when we were all sleeping. Did not bother us once and they let us sleep. Unfortunately I did not try their food service but my husband said it was delicious. The only thing was that they only offered a couple of movies via some small screen at the ceiling of plane making it hard for my 5 yo daughter to watch anything ultimately relying on their tablets which dies early. Overall, from check in to touch down, it was a very pleasant flight! Oh! And the blankets were so soft!!"
Pros: "Love Fiji Airways coz the attendants are always smiling and happy! Prompt service and Captain Das made the take off and landing very smooth! Excellent trip! Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seating needs more room for legs"
Pros: "They did hand out thin blankets."
Cons: "The temperature in the airplane... Couldn't feel my body!"
Pros: "The flight itself was good, the front end/airline was not so good..."
Cons: "They were a minimum 45 minutes late (one 2 hour, 2 one hour) for every flight. Their running late caused us to miss our connection to Brisbane, so they sent us to Sydney. The ,late flight into Sydney cause us to miss our flight into Brisbane (our ticketed destination city). As we de-planed on the Jetway was a woman holding a sign with 12 - 114 names on it, we were one. She told us to go the the transfer desk and they would help us. We had never been in Sydney, could not find a transfer desk (there was none) found the ticketing counter - nobody there, found the airline office - nobody there, went back to the ticket counter nobody still there, asked a competing airline, they directed us to an air travel management office, where we found Fiji Air personnel. They were surprised we were not told where to go. they tracked down the office manager. We finally met with him at 1:40 PM, he told us our flight was in the domestic terminal and scheduled to leave at 2:00 PM. There was no way we could make it to the plane on time. He was rather rude to us and asked us how we thought we were getting to Brisbane, We responded with "I don't know as we've never been here before". Having never been there. we did not know there was an international and a domestic terminal at the Sydney airport. He told us who we were to fly out on and he was going to call over to the other airline and straighten it out. We went to the domestic terminal tried to check in for our flight, but we could not. That airline called Fiji Air to find out why, after half an hour they were told Fiji Air would not honor our flight as we were noted as "no Shows"/. We had to book another flight to Brisbane. The flights were great, we have had VERY BAD EXPERIENCES with the ground personnel,"
Pros: "Nice food."
Cons: "Planes feel not well maintained, no electric outlets, not enough screens..."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Very friendly crew."
Pros: "Loved the soft good quality complintary blankets they had available for us on every seat as well as pillow. Really made it feel homey and comfortable. Probably the best airline meal I’ve had. It was like a creamy mushroom chicken with mashed potatoes, cheese wedge, crackers, etc."
Cons: "The luggage weight limitation on carry-on bags"
Pros: "Staff very good, food and beverage service was delayed or postponed due to turbulence but staff made up for it when service resumed."
Cons: "Entertainment movies not very many new releases."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful and attentive"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable, and needed repair. Entertainment very limited Limited checked baggage (one piece only)"
Pros: "movies and tv were cool"
Cons: "Fiji Gold is too sweet, Fiji bitters is much better"
Pros: "This flight was cancelled due to storms in the Pacific. Fiji Airways put passengers into a hotel and paid for meals."
Cons: "Fiji Airways had poor communication with us about our onward flights, causing us to wonder what was going on. In the end, we were scheduled through another airline 3 days after our flight was scheduled to leave."
Pros: "Aircraft was comfortable."
Cons: "The stranded in Apia."
Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Delay flights"
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened. At least they could have tried the following day but I guess it was a financial decision and not one made with customer service in mind. I would never fly on them except they’re the only game in town to reach Kiribati."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled which ruined the trip for myself and seven friends."
Pros: "On time. Good aircraft. Good landing"
Pros: "?"
Cons: "The food,rude staf ,small and uncomfortable seats,outdated entertainment system. A staff member had the nerve to tell me to let a first class customer go before me to the restroom (although I was in line to use my assigned restroom) because “he was first class and his assigned restroom was occupied.“"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "asked for a blanket... girl never came back with one"
Cons: "The food was okay. For a long flight I was expecting more options."
Pros: "Airline stays rooted in its culture. The interior, uniforms, and ambience all give way to the Fiji island culture. They also give a small pillow and blanket in every seat."
Cons: "I wish the seats were a bit wider and had more legroom. But overall the airline is on average for space and I have flown in more uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Food was really good not many airline offer free meal"
Cons: "Forms and then again on computer"
Pros: "All good small"
Cons: "Small space"
Cons: "Narrow aisles"
Pros: "Except entertainment and comfort i did not like an thing else."
Cons: "Very bad food for those who are strict veterinarian and even don't eat onion, garlic, mushroom because their religion dose not allow. very bad for one who is going to LA and allow only one hand carry even all other airlines allow one hand carry and one computer bag."
Pros: "Got to Fiji safe."
Cons: "1. Checked in was very slow. When we got done, we have to run to the gate cuz they are already boarding. 2. Seats were very small, too tight even for people with short legs. 3. Not much movies to choose from, it was an 11 hour flight, at least give us more movies to choose from. 4. Just saw crew once, when they were passing out meals and collecting them."
Cons: "No free entertainment, no food, unfriendly staff"
Pros: "Good movie selection. Cozy blankets (I'd love to buy one). Overall nice facilities. Smooth flight most of the way through."
Cons: "The flight was unusually warm. Other passengers asked the A/C be turned up but I didn't notice much difference after. The food selection was poor compared to the usual offerings I've seen with Fiji Airways. Dinner's side dishes were a hard roll, chocolate coconut dessert thing, and slice of cake. I was hoping for fruit and/or a salad. Food service was a little slow."
Pros: "Flight attendants were terrific, nice to be able to drink and eat with no worries after a week in Christmas Island."
Cons: "I would Jhabvala liked to have a choice of seats in a plane that was not full. Some people had a whole row while others were full."
Pros: "The boarding and service by the staff was very good. We had a most comfortable flight to Sydney on FJ911 leaving very promptly. We were given a Sydney newspaper which I appreciated to catch up on news."
Cons: "We were very disappointed in the breakfast and ate little of it. The scrambled egg didn't taste convincing. There were stale potato wedges - luke warm, the sausage resembled devon . The yogurt, muffin and juice were OK. My 2 cups of tea were VERY GOOD. The flight was very COLD. After being in tropical Fiji particularly noticeable ."
Pros: "The plane interior is decent & clean for the most part."
Cons: "I had to call Fiji airways 10 times and explain the situation to 10 different people, got hung up on 7 times, & no one ever called me back to resolve the issue. I ended up having to pay $100 to change a flight because of their cancellation... Flight attendants were bossy and rude. One blew a whistle at a passenger when they got up to use the bathroom after we landed."

Half hour late

The WI-FI entertainment kept dropping signal and I would need to restart the app. Very Frustrating.

Crew needs to treat passengers better, kinder.

Excellent service

Flight attendants have been very rude!

Pros: "Had an exit row seat, 17D. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."
Cons: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."
Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Blankets"
Pros: "One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice."
Cons: "Wheel got stuck during takeoff. Had to fly standby to get home. Originally told I would not get home that day. It was 8 am"
Pros: "The seat? Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable"
Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Half of the screens were down. No Gluten free options."
Cons: "Hard to say...it seemed good. I would have liked complementary baggage check"
Pros: "M"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"
Cons: "Plane was late. Connection in Chicago was the worst"
Pros: "All the service was good"
Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."
Cons: "The plane was delayed almost two hours and we had to deplane about a 3 minute walk to the airport in the rain. What I’ve come to expect from American Airlines unfortunately"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."
Pros: "Great crew! Professional. Friendly. Efficient. Excellent."
Pros: "I got there safely."
Cons: "I will never fly American Airlines again. From the moment I checked in with the ticket agent to getting off the plane it was a disaster. The ticket agent was rude, hostile, and dismissive. Employees walked through the line at security forcing everyone to consolidate their belongings to one bag. I had a large wallet in my hand and was told I had to step out of line to put it in my backpack. They only allow you one bag to carry on without paying extra. At the time of boarding they announced that the overhead storage was full so even those that paid extra were still forced to check their bags. The plane was dirty, the service was slow, overall just gross. They don’t have WiFi or in flight entertainment so I paid the $20 to purchase the WiFi. It was worthless. I couldn’t stream anything, even music kept stopping to buffer. I understand it will be slower then on ground WiFi, but it was impossible to watch anything and a complete waste of money."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the staff at LAX was cool. Everything else was ok to good."
Cons: "My checked baggage got left behind at LAX. I got it the next day."
Cons: "This was the worst flight experience of my life I will never flyAmerican again"
Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Rude gate agents who did not inform passengers timely about the 2.5 hours delay. Post the delay after the expected departure time, etc. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
Pros: "Comfort of leg room on BA and AA operated flights, was better then virgin atlantic which I usually take."
Cons: "Movie selection was old, not as good as virgin atlantic airlines"
Cons: "Didn't make it to Tulsa. Won't make it for almost 8 more hours. Shameful."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"
Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"
Cons: "Broken in-flight entertainment system, broken ac plug, broken arm rest"
Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "The connection was too short and I nearly missed my flight. This idiot shuttle operator willfully refused to tell me (literally she just walked away when I asked which terminal the shuttle was going to) where the shuttle was going and I ended up at the wrong terminal"
Cons: "At the terminal , they were not helpful."
Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"
Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"
Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."
Pros: "crew is rude!"
Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."
Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"
Pros: "Free military upgrade was awesome. Thank you AA. In flight entertainment was good because it was free. And thank you for the USB outlet, now if you could just do that for ALL domestic flights i would never fly anything other than AA. Also, my connection was late and AA held the flight for me and 11 others to our final destination to Honolulu. Thank you American Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew were awesome, and some reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. Overall good but not great. Nothing to really complain about though."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was fine. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "I hate their baggage policy! I prepaid for bags and then got charged another $187USD for a small carry on. This is a horrible airline if you pack any luggage at all."
Pros: "The flight was amazing for the price I paid."
Cons: "There could be better food/snack options but I can’t complain too much."
Cons: "The bowl of noodle in soup had no taste to it, breakfast sandwich wasn’t anything special. Pesto salad and butter chicken was good."
Pros: "Check in people were great. Staff very cheerful thanks."
Pros: "We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early which was too soon to check in. Instead of making us wait, the Jetstar attendant offered us an earlier flight. Very accommodating and thoughtful! Thanks so much Jetstar!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Carryon luggage is restricted to 7 kg. Conflicts with worldcstandards and then they apply it to foreigners, but not to Kiwis! They would not let me take on my roller bag, but many locals got to! 9"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The flight was late with no explanation as to why. We missed our connection to the second flight. We had to change our car rental plans, and it cost us twice as much. We had to spend 6 extra hours in the Auckland airport."
Pros: "The initial posted economy fair was very attractive and the timing for our route fit well"
Cons: "Minimal bagage allowance for carry-on Big extra price for booked luggage Nothing provided (even water!) without an extra fee during the flight Minimal seat size and legroom"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Nothing good to report. Uncomfortable seats. Not even water seved on one 3 hr flight. Invisible flight attendants. Disorganized boarding. Idiotic carryon 7 lb weight limit. Soon they’ll be charging by passengers’ body weight. $145 for 2 checked suitcases. No option for free seats. Very long line mandatory to check in. No kiosk to get boarding pass. Pay for entertainment. Had them booked for 3 flights. The worst."
Cons: "Went online to check in and buy bags. Was able to buy one bag but was given message that I must finish check in and bag purchase at the airport. Got to airport and was told second bag was $150 and not $25. Said I should have purchased online. Explained that in one web session I was able to purchase one bag but denied option to buy second. No help or explanation. Not a fan of Jetstar or their web site."
Pros: "it was a short and very smooth flight. all the flight attendants were excellent."
Cons: "the flight we originally had booked got cancelled while we were in line to check our luggage. luckily we were 3 hours early for the flight and were able to catch a sooner flight."
Cons: "Very long lineups to check in. We arrived more than three hours ahead and were told to come back exactly three hours to check in. When we did, we waited for one hour for our turn. Then we had to pay AUD$225.00 for our one 20 kg check-in bag as no payment was received for the checked bag. We thought we did payment online but somehow the process did not go through to Jetstar. There is a cost for anything on board, even water. We had to dispose all our water before security check in. I would never travel with Jetstar again in the future."
Cons: "Don't like having to pay extra for food and entertainment in flight, especially given the selection isn't very diverse"
Pros: "We survived."
Cons: "Screaming children, obnoxious passengers, forced to pay $120 to check two back packs, $5 coffee, rude staff... Will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Flight Crew"
Cons: "Check=in staff expensive luggage fees"
Pros: "I liked how very on time Jetstar is and the crew are friendly."
Cons: "The food and beverage, I paid for a meal not an ala carte looking type of meal."
Cons: "Unable to check in online, then told at the airport that I hadn't pre-paid for check in luggage, so I'd be assessed an "airport fee" of $160 for one bag. A complete rip off."
Pros: "Allowed us to sit with bassinet for our three month old baby. Flight was very smooth and staff were friendly. Make sure to order meal ahead of time as that's what we did and that way you get served first."
Cons: "Meals are expensive for what you get."
Pros: "Would not provide boarding for next flight causing us to be remove from flight wanted to charge for a glass of water."
Pros: "Flights with direct connections that other airlines dont offer. Seats are normal for a budget airline. Just bring your own food and things to do on the plane so you dont have to pay for extras. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Variable policy on luggage. On the international flight they didn't get the weight of carry on luggage, if they did you would get a huge fine for paying for the extra weight. Better to just pay the cost ahead of time if you know you need to check luggage. Check in onto the plane is still a bit of a mess, always seems to be "every just get on" type of process."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The only time we saw the cabin crew was when they were selling something."
Pros: "Good entertainment, friendly crew"
Cons: "Not great food for money spent on meal-$24 for 2 oz of chicken and minimal sides; also charged double to get visa to get into Australia in the fi"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They charged us $140 to check two carryon-sized bags (which we were able to fit in overhead bins on all of our other flights during the trip). VERY disappointed. It was either abandon our carryons, or pay the $140. We felt like we were held hostage by this airline's policy and will never fly with Jetstar again."
Pros: "Cheap flight and I felt baggage weight prices were reasonable separate. If you plan any baggage, I suggest considering buying the max up front. It's much cheaper that way and gives you flexibility since it's by weight and not bag count. Second best is anytime prior to airport. If you are overweight at the airport, you're doing it wrong. Bring your own food (I like Subway), water container, and entertainment for minimum discomfort. I would fly them again."
Cons: "Boarding in Melbourne was a mess. They would not let passengers use the gate seating so most people stood in a stupid diagonal line and blocked the terminal walkway until boarding. Also, water from a flight attendant was not free. If you fly on a 787, please go to the back of the cabin and fill a cup/bottle there. Lastly, on flight food seemed meh and overpriced."
Pros: "Ticket agent was so very kind. Not to mention the staff found and retuned my phone after we landed."
Pros: "Nothing. Had to pay extra for luggage that I thought was already paid. This is the worst airline for price gouging. This information is not very transparent if you book from the US. Kayak needs to make this more prominent for US customers. I will never fly with this airline again."
Cons: "Unless you are purchasing something the stewardesses don't even ask if you want water. This was a10 hour flight. Stewardesses are not friendly."
Pros: "Non Stop Flight"
Cons: "All Bad. Worst airline every"
Pros: "The couple I sat next to were lovely."
Cons: "The plane was over 2.5 hours late with no explanation. Coffee and tea were not free on this 9 hour flight on the morning rounds - one would sethink you back 4 whole dollars! The lady laughed at my flabbergasted face whend my jaw dropped and I said I couldn't afford that for water and a tea packet. Absolutely no value for cost, and beyond disappointing. I will spend whatever it takes to never use this airline again."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Baggage charge was not clearly indicated when I booked flight. I thought I got 15 kg free and when I arrived at the airport they told me it would be $287! I ended up paying $87 which was ridiculous"
Pros: "New plane."
Cons: "Wasn't able to check in online. Had to pay $160 AUD minimum charge for one 15 kg checked bag."
Cons: "Food and drinks need to be purchased ahead of time. Attendants do not even come through to see if you'd like to buy food or drinks during the flight."
Cons: "They don't even offer you water for a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "You pay for everything extra (like most budget airlines), but the entertainment package well worth it, and Sumo salads/toasties on the menu very tasty. People who complain about luggage restrictions should be aware international travel is much more strict, and will not "look the other way" as American airlines do. Do your research, people!"
Cons: "Not notified about US requirements to fill out back of ticket, so got pulled aside at the gate to do it. Passengers included large group of obnoxious children who ran up and down aisles, chattered loudly, and disturbed other passengers. Adults who were traveling with them did nothing (if you see a group with huge bows in their hair, avoid at all costs), so flight attendants should be better about enforcing rules and keeping order."
Cons: "The ridiculously excessive charge to check a bag at the check-in counter!!!! Outrageous behaviour by airlines to have a policy of ripping people off! Never again Jetstar!!!!"
Pros: "I liked that I had 3 seats across and that generally no one bothered me during the flight. The return journey was very reasonable if you didn't need or want to add on many / any extras"
Cons: "Plane was quite dirty. I guess they save on cleaning and cabin staff minimally attending to passengers. Water was help yourself but at least it made you get up and go for a walk to get it"
Pros: "I liked the cost of the ticket."
Cons: "On the hnl syd flight the PA system was so low I couldn't hear a word the flight attendant was saying."
Pros: "Very efficient, clean modern planes, excellent price. I see from others complaining about baggage charges etc. Folks: when you are getting such a good deal on the fare, travel light and bring your own food if you want to save money, otherwise pay up or fly at a much higher fare on another airline."
Pros: "plane was new and clean"
Cons: "literally everything was extra $ on the flight even water & soft drinks! baggage charges were far too high! even if you charge for eveRything or very high prices, AT LEAST MAKE IT VERY CLEAR TO YOUR CUSTOMERS WHEN BOOKING AND CONFIRMING SO THAT THEY ARE PREPARED!"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "we paid some NZ 200 to take luggage 38kg When I booked I did not realize that the allowance was 8kg only. The explanation for the high rate was that we should have informed Jetstar earlier. But.. how to change this when travelling ? This was the only nasty surprise during our 35 days stay in NZ Some warning on your website or lower rates are necessary regards Max"
Pros: "Return flight was not full, extra space to stretch"
Cons: "Had to carry carry-on suit case up and down stairs when boarded the plane. Based on the seat, half of the passengers boarded through regular ramped hall way, half boarded through back door that went downstairs to get out of the building, then up the stairs to the airplane. In Auckland airport international terminal, all passengers had to weight their carry-on and personal bags, and if it's more than seven kg, you have to check it in. This was the first time I experienced that. I bought gifts in the airport and planned to buy more. Our carry ons were a few kg over the limit, and we were sent back to the check in counter, where we just got our boarding passes and no warnings were given. We were lucky we had plenty of time during this transfer to go through all the back and forth hassles. Paying the extra $$ for the surprise check ins was not pleasant. There was another scale at the gate counter, which totally cancelled my shopping plan. To be fair, weight limit was not enforced when we boarded the plane, but you never know when that scale will be used. During the flight, I asked a flight attendant for water, and she told me to get it myself pointing the curtain half a plane away. Another new experience. This was the first time we took Jetstar, and on the way to New Zealand, we didn't feel it was too much different from the other airlines we flew before except you have to pay for everything from a cup of tea to meals and entertainment, and of course we didn't go through Auckland. The return trip really made us realize you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Nice plane, attentive crew when needed. Great way to fly- They are candid about baggage and extras if you want to pay for them. I traveled with carry on only because I am a budget traveler- I basically traveled to Brisbane from Honolulu for what would be the tax on other overseas fights I have taken.."
Cons: "Not airlines fault.. but boy there were some screaming children on this flight.. I did plan ahead with earplugs :)"
Pros: "Could get rebate by phone."
Cons: "Were slow to let us know that flight was cancelled and that it could not be rescheduled for a few days. Had to personally book on another airline--missed two earlier flights on the other airline due to Jetstar's delay."
Pros: "Safe arrival"
Cons: "$160 baggage fee for first checked bag. I thought I was getting a good deal on the flight price, but they gouged me at the check in counter. I won't ever fly with this airline again."
Pros: "This is an inexpensive airline where nothing is included in the price of your ticket. The cost is great."
Cons: "You pay for all the extras, luggage, seat assignments, drinks, and snacks. This was not easily identifiable on the website."
Pros: "As good as you can get, considering it was economy. I think that the 787 made it that way--wonderful plane! I love Jet Star--being able to up-grade to comfort without much problem."
Cons: "Ordering food, even though a better value than most cut-rate airlines, is a pain to remember, and was difficult for some on board. When you say there will be no other food, people don't want to believe you."
Pros: "Low fares!"
Cons: "Given the low fare it was fine, Very limited choices on entertainment package."
Cons: "Kayak needs to do a much better job making it clear that luggage needs to be purchased up front. I realize now that it is in the fine print, but I did not know that no checked bags came with this flight. The cost was not just high, it was obscene ($670 for two bags!). That was just slightly less than the cost of the entire flight for both of us. I will never fly Jetstar again. This was absolutely ridiculous. It is also a very compelling story, which I am sharing with everyone that I know. Please find a way to make this right so that the conclusion of the story can be how Kayak is a good company for fixing this."
Pros: "Inexpensive relative to other airlines You don't have to pay for what you don't want Straightforward boarding process"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable Should be able to elect to sit next to your friend without having to pay for assigned seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours, then 6 1/2 hours, then 7 hours... And they handed out $15 food vouchers that could only be used at the airport, not on the flight."
Pros: "Inexpensive"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, unclear baggage policy"
