Pros: "The crew"

Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"

Pros: "Crew was excellent; responsive, cheery. The safety video was unique enough to have passengers pay attention (seldom seen onother airlines). We were impressed and will fly "Air All Blacks" again soon."
Cons: "Online checkin presented problems, as did the kiosk checkin. Breakfast could have been served a little earlier -- I realize they wanted to give passengers sleep time and turbulence may have delayed service somewhat, too. Otherwise good."

Pros: "Easy flight."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was very cold so the cabin could have been warmer"

Pros: "Seat hard on older aircraft, needs new cushioning on seat"

Pros: "slightly more roomy than most carriers"
Cons: "since it was a Friday during Lent, there could have been non-meat options on the meals. One lunch and one supper offered only chicken and beef both times."

Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"

Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."

Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"

Cons: "Narrow Ailes make it difficult to board."

Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."

Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"

Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"

Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"

Cons: "Virgin Australia operated by air New Zealand. Couldnt check in online and had to be chat he been."

Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"

Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"

Pros: "the fare is so cheap ,service is excellent"

Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"

Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"

Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."

Pros: "Skycouch a bit pricey, but worth it. Allowed sleep to be possible and comfortable on an overnight flight"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"

Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."

Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."

Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"

Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."

Pros: "Everything ❤❤❤"

Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."

Pros: "Technology viewing screens"
Cons: "Connecting flights from Charles Dr Gaulle airport to Heathrow airport"

Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."

Pros: "VERY friendly and genuine!"
Cons: "Only one cookie-haha!"

Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."

Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."

Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"

Pros: "No complaints at all"

Pros: "We made our connection, just barely."
Cons: "Faulty equipment presented as weather problems caused almost hour delay."

Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."

Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."

Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."

Cons: "Love that they fly an a380 into christchurch - a bit overkill but was told it is cheaper to overnight the plane in christchurch vs Sydney or Melbourne"

Cons: "For a flagship airline, a in seat screen should be a given. This is not a budget airline."

Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."

Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "The crew were great it was on time and overall fabulous"

Pros: "Very friendly crew."

Pros: "The distance between the seats in economy is inhumane."

Cons: "More leg room and softer seats would be nice."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and very helpful. Good choice of movies, tv shows, podcasts and music."
Cons: "When the person in front put his seat back there was no room at all for me. He had it back for the whole 12 hour flight except when the staff asked him to put it up for service."

Cons: "Arrival at Terminal 3 at Perth Airport was a real disappointment. It took more than an hour to get through passport control and customs. Woefully understaffed and exhausting after flying from Heathrow and arriving at 11.45pm. Makes me think twice about flying qantas into Perth"

Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."

Pros: "Staff were attentive. Meals were good. I had an exit row so had good leg room"
Cons: "Dimmer light in toilet as every time someone went in we we subjected to bright toilet light."

Pros: "Service and staff were great. Especially liked that they provide a personal kit for everyone which has a toothbrush, toothpaste and an eye mask and ear plugs. Excellent!"
Cons: "As always, more seat room."

Pros: "The braised beef dinner was excellent, the crew were really helpful and the entertainment good. Arrived early as well.Qantas seems to have great pilots as very little in the way of bumpiness on landing. So well done guys."
Cons: "Nothing much. I have long legs so it's hard to get comfortable enough to sleep."

Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."

Pros: "The service and flight as total."
Cons: "No issues."

Pros: "What was there to like!"
Cons: "That i couldn't board this flight. Duh!"

Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."

Cons: "Did not know that we had to download entertainment app So consequently no inflight entertainment Pack in like sardines"

Pros: "Seat comfort amenities crew"
Cons: "No vegan meal options"

Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"
Cons: "Delay but stuff happens eh."

Cons: "Couldn't get on the flight, thanks to the airline counter person."

Pros: "Very good selection of movies with recent releases; music selection was also excellent"

Pros: "Staff this direction was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "You can't check in online or at the kiosk. You must adhere strictly to the carry-on baggage size and weight. The airplanes are a bit worn."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and filled my water bottle through the night. Seat was comfortable and the movies were good."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. I wasn’t offered dessert. No one offered to put the mattress pad on my chair."

Pros: "Overall the flight was smooth, we boarded and off loaded quickly and were fortunate to not have a very full flight."
Cons: "The chairs had very uncomfortable seats, the arms did not go up all the way, so limited laying down. The food was overall poor and not very rapid service. Also for such an empty flight they ran out of menu options quickly. I believe our flight was not on a qantas plane but American airlines, which I suspect had something to do with the difference from previous qantas flights which were much nicer."

Pros: "The staff were great but the wait time on calling quantas is ridiculous, check in on an old machine is slow etc"
Cons: "requested an aisle seat online and was not given one. I requested vegetarian meals but was automatically served up dead animals as food so had to keep requesting vegetarian food everytime food was offered. Rather that checking in with an actual human I was directed to a slow and time consuming check in machine."

Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"

Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"

Pros: "Overall the flight was lovely. Flight crew was wonderful and I can’t say enough good things."

Pros: "Crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Bathroom for business class was out of order about 2hrs before landing, were told to use the bathroom in the back of plane!"

Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "very narrow seating. no snacks at back of plane no plug in for computer or cell phones. outdated plug in for headphones"

Pros: "Love the Airbus 380!"
Cons: "They didn’t pick up trash very often. Had to store it on the floor by my feet."

Pros: "toddler seat. Staff took care of my family and went out of their way to find us and got us situated."
Cons: "food selection"

Pros: "Overall experience was good.Food quality and snack was good."
Cons: "Would like to have more choice in Bollywood movies., and food."

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"

Pros: "Very little. Even though I'm sure I wasn't suppose to, my seat allowed me to put my feet up on the wall. At least I was able to elevate them a bit."
Cons: "First, the flight was delayed an hour and a half. No gate was announced until just before boarding. Afraid of missing my flight, I didn't doze even though I had been awake for 20 hours at this point. Once I got on the plane, the seats were so small in economy my hips were pressed against the arm rests and I am not a large person. The man next to me was pressing through over to my side. We both had difficulty opening the tray for meals because they were in the arm rests (not that it mattered, we were never served good). The controls for the entertainment and lights were in the arm rests as well and there was no way to see them because your thighs were pressed against them. The screen for my entertainment was crooked and flickered. The charging port did not work for my cell phone. The earphone jack had to be wiggled and wiggled and then I had to hold my leg perfectly still not to bump it. I eventually gave up trying to use the entertainment screen. I preordered my meal online, but waiting for dinner, already exhausted, I dozed off. I didn't get dinner and no one came around the rest of the trip and offered any refreshments. No water, no snack, nothing. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure I saw a crew member for the rest of the flight."

Pros: "The service of both inflight & gate agents were wonderful"
Cons: "The seats were a bit tight"

Pros: "Nothing. The very best parts were still mediocre"
Cons: "This flight was so uncomfortable. The seats were small, hard and crammed together. Qantas should be ashamed of making people deal with that on a 13+ hour flight. They kept waking us all up and in general staff could provide little"

Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly, food was great and the wide variety of entertainment offered made the 16+ hour flight go by quickly"
Cons: "Only downside was fellow travelers being inconsiderate."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. It's a lot big flight from DFW to Sydney and they do everything they can to make you comfortable. Plenty of movies to watch. Seats are comfortable. The food is pretty good. Plus you get a menu so you know exactly what meal choices are. They go above and beyond to ensure a great flight."
Cons: "The headphone jacks are on the side of the armrest. It's is a very inconvenient location especially for people who are slightly wider than the average jo. It shout be on top the arm rest or in a much more comfortable location"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive. The boarding was slow at first but moved along quickly. We ordered our meal online and got our meal first. Very good food."
Cons: "The seat was small and we are not tall. The bathrooms were always crowded and hard to clean."

Pros: "I flew over NYE and liked the complimentary sparking wine provided so we didn't miss out on the celebrations. Also food, staff and service was really good!"
Cons: "My preference is to not sit towards the back, but I couldn't check in online and there wasn't anything else available at the counter"

Pros: "Faster service.. More attention to customers."
Cons: "Very bad service, entertainment and terrible food.. My food even had plastic in it.. Which I reported to the crew.. Please improve your standards."

Pros: "Qantus flights were great, really appretiated the extra care they took in ensuring we made our connecting flights after delays and then compensated us for American Airlines stuff up with our luggage."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "They still serve free food and beverages, even on cross country flights. There were plenty of movie choices to keep us occupied."
