Pros: "Comfortable seats"

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"

Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."

Pros: "The pilot would tell us as we were flying over different mountains, regions etc, and the flight was not at all crowded, and there is so much more seat space than on any domestic American flight I’ve ever flown!"
Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."

Pros: "Everything was excellent , no complaints at all. Staff friendly and efficient,food was pretty good , wine nice good flight ."
Cons: "Not enough good new release movie selection was very average/ poor. Your boarding from LAX could be improved. You have two signs about Premium and economy lines for boarding! These are not obvious . There needs to be a staff member or two checking people as they arrive in a line to check they're in the correct t line . Otherwise people don't trailer until they have been in the wrong line until the reach the top of the line . Leads to frustration even before the flight begins! Otherwise great job everyone ! Thank You !"

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

Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"

Pros: "On-time flights."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"

Cons: "Delayed by 45 minutes"

Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."

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

Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."

Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"

Pros: "Service and attitude superb"
Cons: "comfort and seats. On the flight back, although crowded, it would have been nice to have the assistance that 3 large guys could have used to find a seat. Spent the entire flight sweating between two large gentlemen. Luckily, they were polite and we all managed."

Pros: "United Code share. Very poor boarding. Service is poor, food is poor. But compared to some US Airlines they are probably good."
Cons: "Well for every US airline. Improve everything."

Pros: "Fairly comfortable flight, good onboard entertainment. I liked the selection of movies and NZ tv programs. The food was delicious and I love that complimentary wine is served."
Cons: "My only complaint was in regard to the children's meals. We ordered children's meals ahead of time for our 2 kids. On our flight from SFO to AKL, no problem but on the return flight they only brought us one child's breakfast. I asked a crew member for the other one. She told us it would be brought over but never was. So my son had to wait until the regular meals were brought and have one of those. Not a big deal but it was a little annoying. Also, for the return trip dinner, they served delicious Kapiti ice cream with the adult meal but no ice cream with the kids' meals so my kids were super disappointed about that and my husband and I shared ours with them. Again, not a terrible offense, just a little annoying."

Cons: "It is a toss up which airline has more uncomfortable seats, you or United. Leg room is not great and some padding would be nice."

Pros: "I liked having the pilot tell us about the mountains as we passed over them."

Pros: "Window seat on my own. Landed early."
Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."

Pros: "Kind crew. Comfortable space for economy."
Cons: "The food was not even edible. The entertainment was minimal."

Pros: "New screens new seats and very modern"
Cons: "Flight delay could’ve been shorter."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"

Pros: "Great seats on the 787 dreamliner"

Cons: "Qantas is a great airline and I enjoy flying with them. I happened to have two seat mates on either side of me who took up more than their share of the seat, making my flight rather uncomfortable."

Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their new names."

Cons: "I paid extra to pick a seat so I can sit with my friends and once I boarded the plane I realized it had been changed. So I spent $60 for nothing. Why charge for seat assignment if it will change??!!"

Cons: "Less gate changes"

Pros: "On time flight ,no problems."
Cons: "All was fine."

Pros: "On-time, Food, Comfort"
Cons: "Special Assistance not provided inspite of it being booked with ticket."

Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Could not eat the in flight breakfast as both contained wheat (I’m coeliac)"

Cons: "7 hrs late leaving, with postponements drip fed in 1 hr increments resulting in lots of hanging around and day completely wasted"

Cons: "Delays due to storms slowed our departure and made the boarding process a little confusing"

Pros: "A 1950 flight from PVG-SYD and Qantas did everything well to gear it toward a restful flight."
Cons: "Not exiting from the front door after the flight while sitting in Business was slightly unpleasant."

Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."

Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."

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."

Pros: "Pillow and blanket made the trip much for comfortable"

Pros: "Great service, easy flight."

Pros: "Kind, kept us fed."

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: "Economy seats were comfy."
Cons: "Food was terrible! Literally inedible."

Pros: "The flight crew allows you to sleep the majority of the flight."
Cons: "Plane was dated. No outlets at seats so I couldn’t plug in my CPAP machine. Seats crowded compared to other international airlines."

Cons: "When seat in front was pulled down for sleeping left little room for moving and was too squeezy and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Personnel were very pleasant and helpful. Service was great. Plane was clean and organized."
Cons: "Economy seating is cramped, but I was traveling with my adult son so all was good! Night flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, not fun when there's nothing to do and no place to eat/drink in the waiting area."

Pros: "Thanks Qantas for a great trip home. Good food and service."
Cons: "The new uniform look is terrible."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Hostess did not allow 2 ounce drink every other time traveled by qantas 10 times in last 5 yrs had no issue This time qantas made us take our baggage to terminal 2 west jet check in counter which head office should know is a far distance should have arranged to do so like other times in the past"

Cons: "The kioks were a joke. I entered my details, it displayed both boarding passes but only printed one. Had repeat the process. The queue for checking in luggage was also terrible. No organisation what so ever. I waited in a queue that switched staff twice and when i got to the front i was advised that it was break time and she didn't know who was replacing her. I was called over by another staff member at a different queue. Another passenger jumped in. Someone then manned my original queue who called over the person that was originlally behind me. The passnger advised that I was first but the staff memeber rudely told me to wait. The other passenger insisted so I was finally served. Terrible and frustrating experience"

Pros: "We were very needy due to being a large group with elderly passenger. The staff were very patient, tolerant and courteous with us"

Cons: "A jacket of ours was accidentally left on the plane, and when I returned 5 minutes later I was not allowed to retrieve it. So I went to flight services to try and retrieve the jacket and they did almost nothing to try and help me get it. In fact we ultimately lost the jacket because they told us that they probably threw it away with all of the blankets and pillows from the flight. That was very frustrating."

Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"

Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"

Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"

Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew attentive."
Cons: "Needs better, current movies"

Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and tried to make us as comfortable as possible in an old plane"
Cons: "The plane was clearly old. The leg room was horrible. I am 5'10" which is not super tall and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the entire flight. The entertainment was great, but the screen are so tiny and the picture quality was terrible. Comfort is huge on flights that long and it was not comfortable. I felt like $1600 should have gotten me a bit more."

Pros: "offer every passenger a iPad mini"
