Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."
Pros: "Lovely, friendly crew!"
Cons: "No seat selection available on line, so stuffed in the back. No place for luggage. No soft drinks on flight. Mexican chips??? What’s that about?"
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: "Business class lay-flat seats and a private cubby."
Cons: "Boarding required a bus ride to a distant terminal rather than direct boarding from the terminal."
Pros: "New Zealand Air staff were friendly, informative and courteous throughout the entire flight! I was floored by their service and by what was offered. They even worked to arrange for people to move around (some were packed 4 to a row, but there was plenty of space throughout the craft)."
Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"
Cons: "They need to bring around water more often. And actually offer it to people in the window seat."
Pros: "Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated."
Cons: "The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland."
Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"
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: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"
Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. 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. My son had purchased my ticket and not bought luggage voucher. They helped me get online and buy voucher. Would recommend airline to anyone traveling in that part of world."
Cons: "It was a very positive experience. No complaints. I will definately fly Air New Zealand when that is an option."
Cons: "The lack of communication with everything from queuing to board, to food allowance."
Pros: "Crew solid n friendly enough"
Cons: "Seats too tight n cramped"
Pros: "Inflight magazine was just the right length for the flight time"
Cons: "Cookie was stale and coffee was nothing special... but that’s typical of all airlines"
Cons: "I was connecting on an International flight on same airline, New Zealand Air, and did not see where I was required to pay for our one checked bags for my wife and I. When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."
Pros: "The regional flights are nice and quick with no frills or complications. Everyone is in one cabin and you can quickly board using kiosks at the gate."
Cons: "You might want to bring a book on this flight or something as their in-flight video and adverts are all you'll really see in terms of entertainment."
Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."
Cons: "Bathroom did not work, food was not so tasty"
Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. 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: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."
Pros: "Attendants were friendly. The agent at the gate rerouted my flight after my initial flight was delayed. She explained she did that so that I could make my international connection in time."
Pros: "The usual "shuttle" flight between chc and akl."
Pros: "Comfy seats, the flight was basically empty so I got my own row. Very nice flight attendants. Pilot kept us updated on timing and storm movement."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, seat hadn’t been swept for garbage from the previous flight (wrappers and used tissues in the seat pocket)."
Pros: "Quickest boarding ever - Have hardly seen an airline having people board through the rear entry Super fun safety video All-in-all a great experience"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, speedy boarding, nice comments from the captain."
Pros: "I was very impressed by the entire experience. Boarding and disembarking at front and at rear of plane, good spacing between seats, cookies, entertainment options... and lovely flight crew. Thank you Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."
Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."
Pros: "A little cramped on the domestic flight, but for the hour or so from Christchurch to Auckland, it was acceptable. I was impressed that ANZ did a quick meal service on this short flight. The crew was great - very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Close quarters between seats."
Pros: "The crew were uniformly wonderful! They had a bunch of kids from the NZ equivalent of make-a-wish on board so they all dressed up. Anything we needed they provided with a smile."
Cons: "The lay down seats are particularly hard and it is almost impossible to look out the window in business class"
Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."
Cons: "Flight was little late but not too bad."
Pros: "Things generally went well on this flight; you never know what you're going to get, and this was successful- all went well!"

Cons: "Took forever to take off, but not company fault"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything, felt safe"
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: "Everything was quite nice."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Extra leg room at front of plane."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."
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"
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: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."
Pros: "Friendly staff, new aircraft, great food"
Cons: "Just some help with hand luggage"
Cons: "The flight crew and gate crew were the rudest I have seen in my entire life. They acted as if they were too good to acknowledge passengers and ignored the flight attendant light and other efforts to get their attention to ask a question."
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"
Cons: "Landing was rough!"
Cons: "Stuff not helpful, rude and not helping at all despite us being with a baby"
Pros: "The crew was on point and did there jobs well."
Cons: "The food was old fashioned and stuck in the 1960s. Having an option of Beef brisket or Salmon or two polarizing choices. I opted for the brisket and it was decent but not actually worth finishing. It was too fatty and strange tasting. Boarding in Sydney needs much improved screens and communication."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and accommodating. Entertainment was the best selection I’ve ever seen."
Cons: "It was impressive. Can’t yhink of anything."
Pros: "The service, food , amenities were all A +++"
Cons: "2 hour delay sitting in Bangkok airport due to sick passengers and their luggage getting off"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment system. Easy to use and huge variety."
Cons: "The crew seemed very immature. They were more interested in gossiping about their social life and seemed to consider the job as secondary to why they were there."
Pros: "Crew were more friendly from Dubai to Sydney than on other Emirates flights."
Cons: "Screaming kids for whole 14 hours!"
Cons: "Only one thing thaar I'd suggest as an improvements would be to provide water on a mores frequently basis"
Pros: "Information from the captain"
Cons: "Serving alcohol to someone who had consumed a lot, difficult for the crew to know though."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the nicest airlines to fly, even in being in economy. Great service, great food, great on board entertainment."
Cons: "There was an incident prior to take off where a passenger in first class had to be removed from the plane. Though it’s certainly not the airlines fault that there was an issue with a passenger, they should’ve been a lot more transparent and gave us a lot more information on what exactly was going on other then “we need to go back to a special area to get this passenger off.” Couple that with the security checks to “make sure there is nothing on the plane that shouldn’t be” and very little explanation of what actually occurred, it made for a very stressful flight. Not knowing if this passenger had made any kind of threat against the plane, or safety of other passengers... etc, it was very hard to feel safe for the remainder of my trip being left in the dark as the incident occurred in first class."
Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Pros: "Attention to detail Great Entertainment Excellent food Pilot updates on timing"
Cons: "Movie channels and music could be easier to use"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"
Pros: "Nice airplane, good entertainment, good food, ontime service, pleasant cabin crew"
Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic. Why ask First and Business passengers to start boarding when all you are doing is getting them to leave their seats and stand up for fifteen minutes in front of the closed doors going out of the departure lounge?. This has happened three out of three flights and must be standard operating procedure."
Pros: "Best airline so far for economy long haul flight, was emerites flight"
Cons: "No Arabs on board but everything in Arabic, no real issues. Would have been hard for my Thai girl to navigate on her own"
Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"
Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."
Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"
Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"
Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."
Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"
Pros: "The entertainment unit worked all good. The food was great."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I can't say crews weren't kind but I was on another airline with much much kinder crews."
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."
Pros: "Food selection Wine not as good as usual"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Why usher First Class into an area make ten stand up for ten minutes before boarding?"
Pros: "I enjoyed the meals that were provided, the comfortable seats, and all of the flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."
Pros: "more leg room compare with other carriers, a variety of meals to choose from for special needed people (need to pre book online)"
Cons: "can't find anything to complain with"
Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."
Pros: "F"
Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."
Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Toilets"
Pros: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
Pros: "seats reclined nice, movie selection great"
Cons: "i didn't care for the manner in which you are charged for baggage fees"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, staff friendly and accomodating,"
Cons: "Food was just ok, breakfast lacking, only given croissant and yoghurt, the angled lie flat beds are not as good as the 180 degree lie flats, would be nice to have complete lie flats."
Pros: "Economy seats still comfortable"
Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."

No music available on screen

Pros: "Nice amenities, very efficient"
Cons: "Seats are too small, uncomfortable. We had a 50 minute delay in departure."
Cons: "This is my 2nd International Flight and Qantas outrated the other airline 100x’s over. Thank you"
Cons: "The flight from Cairns to JFK that I originally purchased was supposed to be 7 hours of travel time less than what I actually ended up with. The airline changed my flights 4 times after originally booking."
Pros: "Great seats on the 787 dreamliner"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "efficient, entertainment"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Lovely staff and great food"
Cons: "There was no in-seat entertainment and we weren’t advised of this in advance"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic!"
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for a 6’2” tall person."
Pros: "The seat is narrow compare with other airlines."
Pros: "Crew very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "On time flight ,no problems."
Cons: "All was fine."
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: "seats - very comfy flat bed to use on overnight flight"
Cons: "too warm, hard to sleep"
Pros: "The food choices were lovely, plenty of bathrooms and touch screen entertainment (albeit with an outdated feeling and clunky interface.) The skycam was the best part of the entertainment interface options, giving you an outside view of the plane at all times from a camera at the top of the plane tail. Watching the plane during its descent and landing was very cool."
Cons: "I’ve flown in tight-spaced economy seats before, but the lack of space to even bend over to reach items on the floor was extreme on this plane and unacceptable for a 15+ hour flight. It truly felt like a straightjacket. Serious acrobatics were required to reach items on the floor. The tray table would also fly down on its own, the lever holding it would slide free while I was sleeping. There was no wifi at all, not even for using the qantas apps. My fiancé flew on Virgin the week before and was able to purchase wifi and stay in touch with me for $19 for the duration of the flight. Even my flight earlier this year with Qantas on the Dreamliner lacked usable wifi, but the experience of the Dreamliner plane itself was wonderful. In addition, the usb ports on the end of the armrests weren’t working. I feel it should be part of the safety briefing to point out where the usable power points are, given how vital charged phones are these days for boarding passes, reaching loved ones and entertainment when the wifi isn’t working. I didn’t realize there was a plug for laptops/ block plugs until I asked about the USB ports not working until the last 2 hours of the flight. The location of that was somewhere few would notice or look if not explicitly told. This will be the last time I ever book with Qantas when an a380 model is involved, unless great overhauls and updates are completed. Economy should not lack basic ergonomic comforts and while I’ve spent years touting my love for Qantas, having had wonderful experiences in the past, this one fell far below what I had come to expect from the Qantas name."
Pros: "Great service, very attentive with my 2.5yo toddler. Also the baby change rooms in the Business Lounge were some of the best I've ever used."
Cons: "We were booked for a connecting flight we could not possiblely have made given we had to go through customs, immigragion and baggage claim. We had to catch a later flight which was then delayed because none of the toilets worked."
Pros: "I was very surprised that a short domestic flight offered a free drink and dinner service."
Cons: "My only fault was that they didn’t offer a non meat option on their selection."
Pros: "Pillows were comfy, seats reclined to a comfy position"
Pros: "The flight attendants gotta be the happiest people in the biz. I didn't want to be there, but that they did made my whole trip better."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive. They worked hard to make the long flight as enjoyable as possible. The food was bland and uninspired. The in seat entertainment had a great variety though it stopped working with about an hour to go so that was frustrating."
Pros: "freindly staff."
Cons: "First I wasn't told I'd be going domestic . Arrived at the airport 4:30 to catch the internation flight @7:20. Funny thing is I was the only person around. There was the changing of shifts for ground & cleaning etc. No ticket booths. Put passport in kiosk,it said basically no. Finally a ticket agent showed up. She tried my passport ,and nothing. Checked threw the computer & it said leaving out of domestic. Go down to the end of the hall, can check in there. It's Qantas alright, not open till 7:00. Start to panic a bit. Stopped someone and asked. They told me I was at the wrong terminal! Get to other, check in. Ask if I have to collect luggage and customs at LAX. No goes right threw. Wrong. Waited for cases at LAX. Have to collect & go threw customs. No cases, lost in Melbourne. Then I was ignored."
Pros: "Crew was excellent! Very friendly and attentive - entertainment selection was great and the plane stayed nice and cool which is really helpful for a 15hr flight - no one needs 300 sweaty people for 15 its."
Cons: "That we were required to check our overhead bag because it weighed more than 15lbs. Meanwhile as we boarded nearly every passenger had an overhead bag that most certainly weighed more than 15lbs. Not sure what was going on there...also the seats are a little tight when reclined. Once the seat in front of me reclined back I had my knees in the back of the chair the entire flight and I am not a particularly tall person- made for a pretty uncomfortable 15hrs."
Pros: "Overall it was an excellent flight, delicious food, wonderful crew and flight mainly smooth."
Cons: "To get to the gate for boarding was like going from Terminal 2 to Terminal 7 too far for many people to walk and to eventually find when you are not familiar with the airport, thought for a minute Qantas had not paid their airport duties."
Pros: "The second I boarded the plane i realised that Qantus Australia practices number one customer service. Every hostess greeted everyone always with a smile and politeness. The crew were simply fantastic. The new airbus 380 was very comfortable and a perfect flight. Amazing."
Cons: "The fact that my checked in luggage was lost and is yet to be recovered. Very disappointing, i hope its recovered as i don have insurance."
Pros: "Managed to reach destination safely. Only taking about 8 hrs more than scheduled."
Cons: "Flight delayed. The made boarded passengers disembark and wait for an unpredictable amount of time with no updates. Then finally we boarded then the service was very poor. For example they did not remove the dishes for about three hours after serving dinner. The last straw was that they diverted to Sydney instead of the final destination Melbourne as the crew was going over 20 hrs. With the diversion they saved about 45 min , but the exhausted passengers lost another 3 hrs in their already miserable flight. Also quantas NOT friendly for people traveling with kids.... BEWARE."
Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Cons: "Room was quite cold."
Pros: "Crew was trying hard to make customers comfortable"
Cons: "Delay in departure, my seat was next to the “kitchen “, so I didn’t get any sleep due to to constant noise!"
Pros: "The land crew helped get us onto an earlier flight without hesitation."
Cons: "Not very comfortable at the back but we were late to board a different flight. The original seats we chose at booking we cancelled and we were left separated at time of checkin until the crew helped sort it"
Pros: "Hot food"
Cons: "Need 34-36" pitch minimum for long haul flights. Grumpy crew"
Pros: "Crew, spacious seats and airplane."
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, like bathrooms."
Pros: "The quietness of the flight not to many over the speaker announcements"
Cons: "My center headphone peice didn’t work so I couldn’t watch a movie the whole flight or listen to music. No sound"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delayed no information"
Cons: "Bathrooms were disgusting, plane was dirty"
Pros: "The service of both inflight & gate agents were wonderful"
Cons: "The seats were a bit tight"
Pros: "Very accommodating for such a long flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down causing the plane to be delayed 70 min in an already 15 hour long flight."
Pros: "Worst food on flight m service"
Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."
Pros: "Nice aircraft and amenities."
Cons: "All 6 of my flights were delayed causing me to miss 2 connections. Had to pay for a hotel and arrived a day late to final destination. Agents, sales desk, all could care less."
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: "Great service, great food"
Pros: "We loved everything from check in to leaving the plane. They are a lovely bunch. Thank you, Qantas, for hiring wonderful staff members. We hope you treat them well."
Pros: "I love Qantas in general. I paid for exit row seats and it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "Food was ok but I've had better in Qantas."
Pros: "The seating, streaming movie choice and food exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Everything was fine. I have flown with Qantas many times, and it was same as usual"

Cons: "The seats are old, no entertainment, really not the quality I expected for an international flight"
Pros: "Pillow and blanket provided!"
Cons: "Flight attendants spoke very loudly during times when most passengers were sleeping, waking everyone around. A personal water bottle would have been nice."
Pros: "Very friendly crew..."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable....oh well!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "By sending my purchase thru a third party, you screwed my ability to use your cancellation policy and was forced to use there’s which was not customer service oriented. I will never again use kayak"
Pros: "Efficient crew and boarding."
Cons: "Hard to see movies overhead due to brightness of cabin."
Pros: "Nothing was real impressive but nothing really bad for a budget airline."
Cons: "the food, entertainment options (movies) the service including drinks, the plane itself and the overall airline could all be much better."
Pros: "I liked the complimententary pillows and blankets."
Cons: "The crew was not friendly at all. I had to ask for snacks from the crew in the back of the plane. The seats were not comfortable and the entertainment was dated and old."
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Comfort was decent."
Cons: "Late due to crew."
Pros: "Friendly people nice plane"
Cons: "Had a good flight comfortable seat and the food was quite good smooth running everything on time"
Pros: "They had vegetarian options at every in-flight meal. Heaven! Flight staff were all extremely attentive and polite."
Cons: "Seats are cramped (as with most budget travel) and entertainment options were not very good. Movies were mainly very old and games not very interesting."
Pros: "The price was good...initially."
Cons: "My Fiji flights between Honolulu and Auckland were cancelled so they rebooked me on Jetstar and New Zealand Airways Apparently the international date line was not taken into account and I arrived in Sydney hours after my connecting flight to Auckland had already left! I talked to 7 different people in all corners of Sydney airport and no one knew what to do with me. My attempts to call Fiji Airways from my cell phone and then a landline at the airport didn't go through so I ended up messaging a friend in the States and she was able to call and get me booked on a NZ Air flight to Auckland that left the next morning. Both Jetstar and NZ Air gave me different information on what paperwork I needed and what my baggage and carry-on allowance was, which was frustrating. I finally arrived in Auckland 26 hours later than scheduled. I understand the cyclone cancelling the Fiji flights but the rescheduling error caused some significant expenses and a great deal of hassle."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic,,,to being on tine, to boarding and to service thru out the flight. Five star airline!"
Pros: "Thank you for allowing 1 free bag since many carriers now charge even for the 1st one. Hot meal was good but serving curry may not appeal to all passengers."
Cons: "The lines were long to check our bags. I enjoyed the chicken curry meal but other people did not like it since it was a little spicy."
Pros: "Crew's service"
Cons: "Better organizing of boarding"
Pros: "Good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "After many hours the seats were not too uncomfortable. But that's after 10 hours flying. It was nice that they reclined like they did. But the padding could have been better."
Pros: "We have our seats by the window on our flight from Sydney to Nadi, we're so happy for that."
Cons: "We have our seats in the middle of the four (4) seats in the isle of the plane, it's so hard to go to the bathroom, which I do need to go often. We really were not happy and suffering during the flight from Nadi to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Delay flights"
Pros: "Great choices for entertainment; food was hot; crew was excellent to the point of bringing a hot moist towel to wash face/hands with in the morning before serving breakfast; boarding went quickly with having 2 rows to fill in, not just one; the best, however, was the cabin crew bringing water consistently through the night to those that were awake. My husband even took a glass and held it for me while I was snuggled under the blanket. Kudos, crew!!"
Cons: "HA! For me to find something 'wrong' would be hard! Maybe the headphones didn't fit the head just right and couldn't hear equally well out of the speakers? Maybe a bit more leg room for my extra-tall husband?"
Pros: "The staff was friendly, food delicious, and cabin not too chilly."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Small tight seating and horrible food."
Cons: "The food was okay. For a long flight I was expecting more options."
Pros: "Fiji Airways is among the top airlines for the long haul routes. New aircraft, clean cabins, fine entertainment and the friendliest crew you can find. They are consistently great."
Cons: "There was no leg room. Also, the flight was about 1.5 hrs late departing, which almost caused me to miss my next flight."
Pros: "All good small"
Cons: "Small space"
Pros: "Very nice plane and it includes food and drinks and wonderful service"
Cons: "Extra bag was pretty expensive"
Cons: "Narrow aisles"
Pros: "I like the entertainment options"
Cons: "Crew not careful during food/beverage service. Received a 2nd degree burn from tea accident due to getting spilled on"
Pros: "Except entertainment and comfort i did not like any 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: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats are hard"
Pros: "Was fine could have served more water/juice/soft drinks but overall was good"
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."
Pros: "Great service. Flight attendants are super helpful and nice. The meals are really good too. Small things as movie selection was amazing too. An overall outstanding experience. Vinaka!"
Cons: "It was perfect."
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."
Pros: "Covered by headline"
Pros: "It was very good, the crew were amazing, and I didn't have any issue traveling all the way to my destination. Thank you Fiji Airway and the airlines cooperated with you."
Pros: "Food options were good. Service was great. I think it was a great options with the price I paid."
Cons: "Seats are narrow for some people. It can be uncomfortable if the person in front reclines their seat, since the rows are close together."
Pros: "Crew was nicest in the air, so friendly, professional, helpful!"
Cons: "Many glitches in the reservations process: my flight records were messed up on 3 flights. Recommend allowing a LOT of extra time for check in if you fly Fiji!"
Pros: "very good service, no delays"
Cons: "would be nice to have more leg room"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food was average. Seats don't lay totally flat"
Cons: "The button to call a flight steward means nothing. I pushed the button over 5 times and saw others do the same and no one came - it took 15 minutes! In any airline 2 rings and no matter what someone would come if to say wait please. I experienced this 3 out of the 4 flights I had with Fiji Airways. Terrible!

Pros: "The staff were great and I LOVED the pillows and blankets, by far the best I've ever seen on any airline!"
Cons: "The headphone jack didn't seem to work very well, even with the volume turned up all the way I could only hear half of the movie"
Pros: "Food was great!! Flight attendants provided excellent service. Entertainment was really good, and the plane looked pretty new."
Cons: "There was barely enough room for everyones stuff in the overhead containers. Because of the location of my seat (aisle, just when the number of seats oer row changes) I got bumped on my shoulder quite frequently."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "The pricing seems low when purchasing the ticket, but we were charged $45/bag for our carryon bags that could easily have fit in the overhead bins (and on a separate flight with another airline that is what we did). Seems like a money grab to charge for the carryon if it weighs more than 7g or whatever small amount. Just take that cost into account when booking your flight."
Pros: "On check in we were offered the extra legroom right at the front, with just the two of us on the row!"
Pros: "The price was OK"
Cons: "The flight (scheduled for 80 minutes) was almost 6 HOURS LATE!!! The information we received whilst waiting was inconsistent. Very frustrating."
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: "Price"
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"
Pros: "Super quick, clean, professional. I love Jetstar."
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."
Cons: "Delayed, delayed, delayed, cancelled"
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."
Pros: "Staff apologized for slight delay due to weather which was no big deal. Fast boarding because they use the front door and aft door."
Cons: "I overpaid for my checked luggage and couldn't get a refund. I prepaid. You might as well tell people if you are bringing a suitcase, you have to pay. Ticket price should include one suitcase up top 15 kg- 20 kg."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Both legs of my flight were late, and the excuses given by each pilot were weak."
Cons: "I bought jet star tickets worst experience ever All employees are lazy they don’t care about anything"
Pros: "Take-off and landing were smooth."
Cons: "1) Online check-in wanted our weight of our checked-in bag, and because I didn’t know it, we checked at airport but then had to pay $60 instead of the $25 or so online. 2) while they were making us pay, they didn’t mention that the flight was delayed so we got to our gate almost 2 hours too soon with no clue. 3) they wouldn’t even give a cup of water. Had to pay $4 for a bottle."
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: "Great boarding process. Happy/smiling staff. Great experience overall."
Cons: "No onboard entertaibment but it is a budget airline on a short haul flight so...."
Pros: "Short flight time door-to-door. Leather seats were good."
Cons: "The guy in front of me was slightly obnoxious. Flight was bumpy at times."
Pros: "Service personnel were polite and friendly."
Cons: "Being charged for luggage and bags were damaged. Still waiting for results of claim"
Pros: "Note too expensive"
Cons: "Jet star wanted to charge us $60 at gate for our hand bags after we checked our two carry on bags with 10kg balance. Very confusing baggage policy for people originating from USA"
Pros: "It was cheap and I got what I paid for....."
Cons: "Check in staff were rude."
Cons: "We had to be bussed from the terminal to our flight in both Auckland and Sydney which made the flight delayed and thus me having to run for my connecting flight. Naturally my bags didn't make it past Sydney. There was no in flight breakfast or complimentary snacks nor was there any TVs for the 3 hour flight. Overall, not the best experience."
Pros: "Nothing unless being over chargered gets me points when in heaven."
Cons: "When I ordered the flight the process never gave me a chance to pay for bags like it did from Auckland to Christchurch. However, on the return flight when I went to check the bags in they said I would have to pay $210 for 2 bags. Thanks jetsatr and kayak for not having a good process to order a head of time. Won't use either again unless someone reads this and gives me a refund."
Cons: "It was our first experience with a low-cost flight and we did not receive any information about the cost of the baggage when paid prior to the flight in the airport. It costed us more than the tickets!!!"
Pros: "Ground staff and attendants were great!"
Cons: "No entertainment and have to pay for food, not even a drink."
Pros: "Crew and staff were nice."
Cons: "Baggage fees are super expensive if you don't prepay. Can be as much as the flight itself. Be sure to prepay for your baggage!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The flight was ordinary, on time and okay service. There was no food or entertainment on this short flight."
Cons: "We were charged an extra $140 to check our bags (2) because we had not indicated in advance that we had luggage to check. These were our only 2 bags (one each), not extra baggage. I don't think the contents were even worth $140. Will never flly JetStar again, and will tell fellow travelers to avoid this airline."
Cons: "Baggage process is dumb."
Pros: "Nothing, never, ever go on Jetstar"
Cons: "No explanation, no time table, awful service."
Pros: "Good cheap, no frills flight"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, but the agent bumped us on an earlier flight to accommodate our connections without even asking. No entertainment service, and the flight was short so by the time we were to be served it was ready for landing."
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: "The cabin, crew and aircraft met and exceeded our expectations for this flight. Everything ran smoothly and we were both very impressed with this domestic flight. Thank you Jetstar!"
Pros: "Easy well organized airline"
Pros: "This particular flight was on time!"
Cons: "Cramp seats. Another 400 NZD for our luggage. It's not the typical 25 for checked bags!"
Pros: "Forgot to add check bag to my fair. Arrived early and was to add a check bag for $17. The service was great for the price of a short domestic flight."
Pros: "The initial price."
Cons: "Jet star is a super cheap company. Everything is extra. We purchased extra baggage but didn't have a scale and we weighed over. Make sure to purchase the heavy side because it cost an arm and a leg. The lady at the desk didn't know the rules for fishing rods and almost made us pack them. Luckily we had just flown a different airline and knew we could carry them on. If you decide to change your flight it's cheaper just to purchase new tickets."
Cons: "Huge baggage fees that surprised us."
Pros: "As always Jetstar knocked it out of the park. Great crew and service. On time despite a passenger issue that was handled extremely delicately and professionally. This is a budget airline with a full service attitude. Never ever have they let me down."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was first class."
Pros: "Anything I liked has been ruined by the baggage fees. I am expecting to be reimbursed and look forward to some contact from a company representative."
Cons: "The price of the flight advertised clearly stated that there were no baggage fees, it was written as £0 after the words 'baggage fees', so I was clearly surprised to be asked to pay $70 upon arrival at the airport from my baggage. Would someone like to explain this? I will be taking this up with the senior partners at your company as I feel this is complete miss advertising. The fact that you can state zero fees and then expect customers to pay extra is RIDICULOUS!!! I WILL NEVER BE USING THIS COMPANY AGAIN, EVEN IF THE PRICE IS CONSIDERABLY LESS THAN A COMPETITOR."
Cons: "The ridiculously excessive charge to check a bag at the check-in counter!!!! Outrageous behaviour by airlines to have a policy of ripping people off! Never again Jetstar!!!!"
Pros: "cheap fare"
Cons: "late departure due to APV malfunction, brisk service"
Pros: "When booking the flight I somehow missed that I had to claim luggage beforehand (this was my first time using JetStar). Anyway 170.00 later we were off. The crew and staff were fine. There was no food, no drink, and no entertainment."
Cons: "Besides the luggage fees, the seats were terrible. They sit straight up at a 90 degree angle, almost forcing you to recline to get comfortable. Quite claustrophobic."
Cons: "So I showed up to find out that my ticket didn't include luggage, ok, no big deal I will pay for the bag, what 75$, no problem. oh wait a minute they wanted 300$ for the bag. the flight was less than 250$, I ended up walking over to Air NZ and got a flight with them. I will never, ever, ever, ever book with these jokers again. This should be illegal, showing up at the airport and then being told the baggage charge is over 100% of the price of the ticket. I could have bought another ticket just for my bag and put it in the seat beside me for less. How does an airline justify this???"
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"
