Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The captain was late to the airport so our flight was delayed"
Cons: "Bulkhead seating terrible for long haul flight"
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: "everythign aboht the trip was great"
Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "I was recovering from a cold and didn't anticipate having ear problems but during decent I began to experience some pain. It was all new to me as I had never been through this before. Fortunately the crew was kind and they provided a sinus decongestant in a cup for me to sniff and breath in so the smell could open up my nasal passages and it helped a bit."
Cons: "The sharp decent while arriving."
Pros: "Comfortable lots of entertainment options clean flight attendants were kind"
Cons: "no vegetarian options in the main meals"
Cons: "Very small seat"
Pros: "seat crew food entertainment"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "It was simply fantastic - all of it!"
Pros: "Courteous crew members and nice aircraft. New technology at check-in allows faster drops off for luggage! Replaces face time with real people (jobs) but it's also very futuristic. Flight attendant brought water very quickly when I requested it on my screen not knowing it if would work."
Cons: "We don't get sleepers to walk around in like in Aeroflot! My map didn't work on the way there so I couldn't learn fun facts about my flight!"
Pros: "I like SkyCouch."
Pros: "Everything comfy spacious seats row 8"
Pros: "Everything FA even got our bags out while taxiing into gate"
Pros: "Everything was quite nice."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Crew, cleanliness, movies"
Cons: "Meals were so-so."
Cons: "Long distance from arrival gate to departure gate"
Pros: "When booking, we were unable to choose our seating hence we were not sitting together. At the airport we asked if there was a way they could put the three of us together. Air New Zealand was able to accommodate our request. It was a 12 hour flight. We were very grateful."
Pros: "The fly was on time"
Cons: "The service very poor"
Pros: "Crew were very human unlike in the industry. Seat next to me was empty, I requested to change the seat Ms. Aimee the crew let me after safe cruising. Best part is, the seat was sky couch or premium economy and she let me use it. If it would be other airlines they would mindlessly refuse it. High level of courteousy and sense of exellent service displayed. All airlines should learn"
Cons: "Food could get better."
Pros: "Purchased an exit row aisle seat - all the leg room I could ask for. Close to toilets - no odor issues. Good meals. Staff basically courteous (though not unfailingly - occasionally a tad blunt and titchy - a common experience for me on Air NZ)."
Cons: "Air NZ website states exit row seating purchase comes with priority boarding. When I asked about this at the gate counter I was told I would be seated by row number. Seems like this is a common issue with Air NZ - see e.g., skytrax website reviews. The website advertising is inaccurate if not false."
Pros: "Excellent service, seats, big screen, etc ✅"
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was superb. The staff was very nice, the seating area was spacious and relaxing and the lights inside were super fun! Everything ran on time and the food was actually quite good."
Cons: "My dead would not recline, but I would not find any fault with my flight even with that."
Pros: "Comfortable, Clean & Friendly Service. Loved the fun saftey video. Best flight I've been on by far."
Pros: "The service was very good, food good, seats comfortable. The sears on the way to my destination seemed roomier than on way home, maybe a different type of plane?"
Cons: "This was my first long flight 12+ hrs. And I wish I would have gotten the economy couch option. Sitting upright that long is difficult."
Pros: "Flight had gluten free meals. Crew was professional"
Cons: "45 minutes late so missed connecting flight. While anz booked me on the next flight, international flights shouldn't be that late"
Pros: "Loved the crew, and entertainment options"
Cons: "Very little space in the aisle and between seats"
Cons: "Tv didn't work to Australia so they moved us to the back row and tv quit working again on the return flight. The flight attendant wasn't helpful and I would rather fly with Jetstar this flight was below budget airlines"
Pros: "These guys are the best!"
Cons: "Flight was too short"
Pros: "We flew premium economy. The staff was wonderful great first experience! I really wish the other three crews could have kept this momentum going as my other flights with ANZ were less than thrilling! The flight attendant staff was phenomenal on my iah to akl leg. My crew on the akl to iah leg. Brandon gave the initial intro and seemed to follow the original crews standards. Unfortunately, we had an older flight attendant who seemed less than thrilled to be with us this flight."
Cons: "I wish I could give a true rating of ANZ as their crews apparently don't follow any protocol for providing the same exceptional service received on my maiden flight with them."
Pros: "Watching movies made flt not being go by faster"
Cons: "Not being able to just order a beer....yes, I did on screen but still was not able to buy cuz said service was closed. This after flt attendant told me to use screen to order n pay. She eventually just gave it to me after trying to do it herself unsuccessfully."
Pros: "I had read quite a bit of negatively but although I have had better service and more comfort it was better than I had herd it would be. The in seat entertainment system was better than any I had experienced."
Cons: "For the most part the crew was very nice. But the attendant we had lacked some professionalism and seemed very tired. We didn't always get what we asked for as well with no explanation why."
Cons: "Fixed arm rests in the bassinet row. We had extra seats which was a lovely surprise but it was not much help as the arm rests don't move. Won't pay for that row again as my bub was just a bit too heavy for the bassinet."
Pros: "Nothing in particular--it was a short flight. I did appreciate that the crew went ahead and turned on the entertainment system even though it was a short transit time (we were on a plane meant for trans-Pacific travel--only reason it was available in the first place)."
Cons: "No complaints here."
Pros: "Not very much"
Cons: "The crew in my area didnt like her job or passengers in general and it was obvious."
Cons: "Nobody believes in offering decent food anymore. Flying was so much better 25 yrs ago. Soon we will have to pay to use the toilet."
Pros: "The food was good, the accommodation, although it been a long flight everything was allright"
Pros: "short flight made seats less inportant"
Cons: "not the seats I selected in October"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful! Lots of leg room, quick and helpful boarding. Loved my first time on Air New Zealand."
Cons: "I should've asked for a vegetarian meal but I didn't think to. I will next time! I'd also love some more NZ movies...Whale rider, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, etc! That'd be great!"
Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."
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: "Significantly more leg room than other competitors! Even with the person's chair reclined in front of me, I was still able to be comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was as good as can be (given that it is airline food), the choices for entertainment were great. Lots of overhead storage!"
Cons: "Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke."
Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Pros: "Very friendly and frequent service while in-flight. It was great having my own monitor built into the seat to watch available movies or tv shows I wanted to for the duration of the flight. Flight attendants would walk the aisles every two hours and offer water to everyone. I had never flown Air New Zealand before, but now it's one of my top airlines."
Cons: "The only complaint would be that there was no in-flight wifi available onboard."
Pros: "Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous!!!!!! Flight Crew was very friendly, helpful, and always smiling."
Cons: "On board Mask enforcement - was not done. The video controller buttons were on the arm rest. This presented a challenge to actually USE the arm rest for myself and my seat mates - we were constantly and inadvertently turning the monitor on."
Cons: "Food and rough flight"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Great to be home in time"
Pros: "great job over all."
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Cons: "Probably nothing"
Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Pros: "the flight attendant was a little snippy with a couple of the passengers"
Cons: "need to change up the snacks a bit. Maybe offer 2 options? And they are so tiny"
Pros: "Check in and departure very quick, efficient and professional.... very intuitive and helpful when observing that customer is in need"
Cons: "From a customer service standpoint, I Would lower or not charge business or first class rates on a jet in which the seats for the above mentioned clearly have no physical distinction from those in economy class. Just a thought."
Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "United is consistently late and unhelpful with addressing travel delays. The first leg of my flight was delayed which would have caused me to miss my connection. United staff could not have been less helpful. In the future, I will try to avoid flying United wherever possible."
Pros: "Since it was an empty flight, I was able to spread out a bit."
Cons: "No entertainment. WiFi sucks."
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Cons: "In both flights the in flight entertainment don’t work, you need to pay for a service that is free in other airlines"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth, even the landing and take off. Cudos to the pilots. Liked that we were given a pillow and blanket (FREE). The food was good and the crew was pleasant. I loved that we had FREE movies and TV programs to watch with FREE earphones."
Cons: "The seating is AWFUL for economy section. For this reason I will never take a flight over 2 hours again. A nine hour flight is sheer torture!!!! Plus I was freezing the whole time, even with a jacket with a hood, two blankets, two pillows. Just a horrible situation."
Pros: "Excellent flight and service."
Cons: "There were no issues. Nothing to not like."
Pros: "The flight was fine, no drama. Crew was s great. But damn that is an uncomfortable plane. We were only on it 3 hours and I found the seat to be so short in the seat pan my back and legs were aching an hour in to it. You are really are just pearched on the seat. Also the aisle is extremely narrow. You almost have to walk side ways down it."
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"
Pros: "Flexibility in changing reservation at the last minute. Excellent service on board, good food."
Pros: "The credit was polite, hat was about it"
Cons: "We were delayed coming out bc the plane needed de-icing... IN JACKSONVILLE, but they were unable to get manager approval for de-icing and then the truck was out of fuel. Finally, the pilot moved the plane into the sun (which should have happened much sooner). During the flight, the cabin temperature dropped to low 60s and everyone was freezing."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent staff and captain. Informative updates."
Cons: "Ensure wifi works for in flight entertainment when you have to use your own device. 6 hr flight and complimentary in flight entertainment wifi worked for about an hour. I then paid for an hour of wifi for almost $18 and it was super slow then stopped working."
Pros: "That United transferred my flight to another airline (American) due to a five hour delay."
Cons: "I don’t think I’ve ever been on a United flight that wasn’t delayed for one reason or another."
Cons: "No outlets or entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing really. I'm glad Delta, Virgin, and Southwest have direct flies now so I don't have to deal with the worst airline in the history of humanity,"
Cons: "The worst support and irresponsible system canceling my seat and no support"
Pros: "Alex and Marcus -- flight attendants -- were awesome. They thanked passengers directly and personally for flying United, and this was a very nice touch and I observed that passengers were touched by this gesture."
Pros: "Not applicable. Do love the size of the Tulsa airport and ease to get to United gates. Yummy waffle snack!"
Cons: "The baby crying!"
Pros: "pleasant staff at terminal"
Cons: "notified at absolute last minute that flight was canceled with no weather related cause. Airline knew ahead of time as aircraft did not arrive. poor communication overall."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled twice. United lied about luggage. Had to purchase toiletries and hotel room."
Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."

Pros: "Great in flight service. On time. Easy upgrades using United mobile app."

Cons: "On LAX tarmac for 40 min. Food awful"
Pros: "besides a few delays it was rather enjoyable. i was even traveling with my 12 month old and he was happy!!"
Cons: "minor delays and some wind on the landing but that's out of our control"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and polite, despite heavy snow delays."
Cons: "Possible lack of communication with connecting flight, also United Airlines."
Pros: "All was normal. So fine."
Cons: "The delay. Sick passenger and icy wings. None the fault of United"
Pros: "We boarded timely, and quickly. All the staff were friendly."
Cons: "Overhead storage in back seats, area was full of flight attendants belonging. Hard to find room for our 1 carry on. (I realize they need room too, but thought they had their own space)promot"
Pros: "We volunteered to be bumped to another flight, but instead ended up on our same flight but with upgraded seats!"
Cons: "Unfortunately the stewardess was a little rude and treated my husband and I sub par compared to the other first class passengers. Yes, we were upgraded from economy but we felt she should have given us the same service as the other passengers. When she passed snacks she quickly put the basket in front and didn't even give us a chance to say no before walking off. Didn't offer refills to us but others were given refills/offered."
Pros: "Notification of the fight being delayed."
Cons: "The turbulent ride, the plane was shaking so much I thought it might fall apart! Not a good flight!"
Cons: "It was too warm on the plane, lost a bag and sat on the runway after leaving gate for about 30 mins"
Pros: "I loved that I got to the counter to check in and get my tickets and the lady behind the counter ( can't remember her name) asked me if I wanted to keep my flight or take a nonstop flight to Milwaukee. I obviously took the nonstop flight."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say."
Pros: "Professionalism of check-in staff"
Cons: "Unfriendly flight attendant"
