Pros: "the cushion to sleep on"
Cons: "the blanket"

Cons: "Waited 55 minutes for baggage claim in Auckland. No reason given. I expect better service from Air New Zealand even though I understand the baggage handler’s are different group"

Cons: "Great that they served two warm meals without extra charge? But the meals were quite bland, with little imagination."

Pros: "You get what you pay for. Can't complain."

Pros: "Great crew and counter staffing. Only took about 10 minutes to get my ticket and half of that was due to some snag with the NZ visa details."

Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Everything. Air NZ has the best Premium Economy class in the sky."
Cons: "All good."

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: "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: "The crew member in my section was amazing, he went out of his way to greet each and everyone of us individually. The flight was comfortable, boarding a breeze and on time!"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable."

Cons: "Generally ok for econ"

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: "Long lines for security in Auckland, so I barely made the flight to Chicago. There were delays in Chicago due to the weather."

Pros: "Amazing crew. Airline was awesome .. seem less"

Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it."

Pros: "Very spacious seats and good entertainment system. Two meals provided. Good blankets provided with pillows. Spacious and clean bathroom."
Cons: "My usb charging plug didn’t work and I wish they sent me an email in advance or told me upon check in what the requirements were that I would have to show upon boarding. I was not prepared to show them my follow on flight schedule (leaving NZ) but I would have been prepared if I had known in advance"

Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"

Pros: "Service and food choices. Seating and the mattress for bed."

Cons: "They don't greet me only the people in front and behind me. I didn't receive a meal she skipped me i don't know if you have to pay or not but the person on the left of me got one and the person the right got one"

Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew made us laugh and our flight flew by. Great entertainment options and the food service was delicious."

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."

Pros: "This flight was on the 777-300 plane leased from EVA. Boarding proved to be a bit of a slow grind due to the inordinate number of families with children on this particular flight. Our fault for not realising this at time of booking. Flight itself went very smoothly. Seats were fine. Not a huge selection of movies to choose from. Felt the crew went about their duties without fuss and ticked all the boxes for me."

Pros: "Great flight with wonderful service."

Cons: "The lack of communication with everything from queuing to board, to food allowance."

Pros: "The flight was good. The plane is very nice. The in-flight entertainment was good, but you have to pay for most shows/movies. The flight attendants were very nice. The landing was a bit rough. The plane kind of swayed/slide down the runway. But it was raining so it was understandable."
Cons: "Snacks aren't free. They ran out of food before they got to the back section of the plane. Most of the in-flight entertainment is not free."

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Free wine and cheese or choices of cookies—extra servings too."
Cons: "Seats are just standard—headrest part doesn’t adjust"

Pros: "Entertainment was great and even leg room was decent for economy seating"
Cons: "There are no personal air vents. I was sweating for 3/4 of the flight and had to ask for the air to be turned down 3 times. The air vents they do have point inwards and do not get the window seats at all. Hope the return flight is better"

Pros: "Very friendly ticket counter staff and flight crew."
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak on Virgin Australia, but found out it was a codeshare on Air New Zealand. No where during booking did it show we would be charged for 1 checked bag a piece. Got to the airport and Air New Zealand was going to charge 134 AUD for each checked bag. Fortunately, they recommended going to the Virgin Australia counter to see if they could add a checked bag to our ticket. The nice people at Virgin used an online code to give us a discount so we only paid 25 AUD a bag. Thanks a lot for the heads up Kayak. We will book direct next time to avoid surprises. Also, almost all movies on Air New Zealand were an extra charge, and the only drinks offered for free on a 3 hour flight were coffee, tea, and water - no soft drinks."

Pros: "Everything. A modern comfortable plane. It's embarrassing for airlines from America because they pale in comparison. I would gladly pay $100 more and fly in style IN COACH! Can't wait for the return flight."
Cons: "I am vegetarian so should request veg option meals"

Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."

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

Pros: "The flight departed on time, arrived on time - run of the mill stuff for Air NZ. Crew very good as per normal"
Cons: "I swear the seats are getting more and more 'scrunchy'. There are more appropriate places to get almost intimate with your seat buddy."

Pros: "The food was GREAT! The flight crew was social, nice and I felt apart of the family. The seats were comfy. I brought my own movies on my iPad but I used their free movies instead."
Cons: "Nothing negative"

Pros: "The crew was super nice and so accommodating. They were all quickly available during the entire 14 hour flight, and always had a smile. I thought the food was nice as well, and there were so many entertainment options."
Cons: "Having a bit more room during such a long flight would have been nice!"

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."

Pros: "Great food (most airlines do not serve any), great entertainment system, & cleanliness is superb."
Cons: "Cabin was too cold. I had to wear a jacket most of the flight."

Cons: "The staff asked for my return ticket to the U.S. I told them I have a round trip ticket from and to Japan. I have to show them my U. S. Navy identification card otherwise Air New Zealand would not have processed my boarding pass ticket. Air New Zealand discriminates."

Cons: "the person next too me was overflowing in their seat so much they took up a quarter of my spot.. it was not work making the flight uncomfortable by making a stink about it but I paid for a whole seat not 3/4 of one!"

Cons: "I was not able to pay for excess luggage online because I was told that I had to do it 48 hours in advance. I did not know I need and extra bag until the day before i left. So instead of paying the 1 dollar promotional fee advertised online i have to pay 191 dollars at the airport. That is ridiclous."

Pros: "So many complimentary items such as food, drinks, and even alcohol. The most professional crew I've ever seen."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment good"
Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Crew was professional and very friendly, food was excellent, entertainment choices were fantastic. The seats were even comfortable and we were in coach!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything exceeded expectations."

Pros: "Comfortable lots of entertainment options clean flight attendants were kind"
Cons: "no vegetarian options in the main meals"

Pros: "seat crew food entertainment"
Cons: "no wifi"

Pros: "The business class on Air New Zealand is the space and comfort level all airlines should have in all classes of seating. I could comfortably fly to Europe from California in business class on this airline."

Pros: "Loved the crew, and entertainment options"
Cons: "Very little space in the aisle and between seats"

Pros: "It was s safe flight."
Cons: "I didn't feel valued and appreciated. Poor options for complementary food service."

Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "Nothing"

"I didn’t eat any of the snacks nor drink any of the beverages available on the flight. I tend to fall asleep on the plane, which is what happened. It has been a while since I have flown United, I appreciated the spacious seating, comfortable seats and improved planes. Thanks for making the flight easy and enjoyable, it seems like the company has been working on making general improvements to their flights and it’s paying off."

Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":("

Cons: "The flight was delayed because the inbound aircraft arrived late, but United didn't notify me until I was already at the airport. They would have known about the delay for hours already by that point, so I could have rebooked on a different flight. Instead I had to spend the night by the airport in Hartford or risk missing my connection and being stranded in Chicago."

Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable.. the service was responsive and friendly!"
Cons: "The actual flying part was smooth.. and all that flying can be expected.. my only problems were with flying thru Chicago.."

Pros: "Nice attendant."
Cons: "Very late."

Cons: "Old plane"

Cons: "What happened to complimentary snacks?!"

Pros: "I would love to take off and make it to my destination next time instead of sit in the airport for 8 hours strung along by the employees saying the plane will be fixed."
Cons: "Everything."

Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"

Cons: "The seat in business class was small."

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: "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: "Old flight"

Cons: "Check in was with a new trainee and she was not sure how to put in our TSA - we got sent around to other people quite a bit. Plane was late and we almost did not make our connection in Dulles"

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: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi."

Pros: "On rime"

Pros: "Excellent trip. Took basic economy. Only like needed to pack for weekend. Got the job done."
Cons: "No frills. It wasn't needed but gotta think of something to put here."

Pros: "It was ok"

Pros: "I liked the comfortable seat and the empty seat between myself and the other passenger in my row. Staff were lovely and very friendly."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Staff at the ticket counter was friendly enough to me personally, although was extremely reactionary to the restless crowd. I am glad that I was able to be rerouted to another destination where I could be driven home within three hours. Good food boxes on the plane (I had the Tapas). Friendly crew onboard."
Cons: "No offer for any sort of compensation for significantly altered travel. Even just a stock email acknowledgement would have been nice. Expensive wi-fi options on the plane, electrical outlets for only half of the plane."

Pros: "Everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "Delays due to staffing issues led to missed connection and 7 hour wait for next available flight."

Pros: "I did not like any part of the trap maybe when they offered us some preferences that was included in the fly that's about it"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed the text message updates said we're not accurate"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled three times before they finally switched us to Delta. We missed an entire 2 days of our vacation that we haven't got reimbursed for. One of the agents that worked for United Airlines put her hands on my friend that I was traveling with and the police got involved. It was an horrible experience and no one was trying to accommodate us for our troubles what's so ever. I will NEVER fly United again. A waste of time and money."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was stuck between two very large men on a flight where there was apparently no air conditioning. I could barely breathe for how hot it was."

Pros: "I could not find anyplace on the United reservation to enter my TSA Pre check number. As a result, even thought I am 80, I had to wait in line and disrobe at Hartford CT airport."
Cons: "It would be helpful if Kayak or airlines could highlight or include the TSA Pre number automatically on check in."

Pros: "The roominess of the sets on this plane were excellent and the stewardesses were very friendly and accommodating ."

Pros: "Delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Lack of customer service response to help initially with rebooking"

Pros: "Early boarding for families"
Cons: "Ridiculously cramped bathrooms"

Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."

Cons: "Poor service, not pleasant attitude from flight attendant."

Cons: "Flight was canceled and both service desk and over the phone customer service took over an hour so I paid out of pocket to rebook with another airline."

Pros: "I liked the fact another passenger was willing to switch seats so my husband and I could sit together."
Cons: "I didn't like the attitude received from the person at the desk at the gate. My husband and I looked at our tickets and were surprised to see the seat assignments I had chosen when I purchased the tickets were not there and instead the boarding pass said "see agent". She then assigned us seating in separate rows and handed us new boarding passes. No explanation. We looked at them and handed them right back and said no thank you, we had purchased tickets together. She said, "this flight has been oversold" and motioned for the next passenger to step up. This really upset my husband who told her, "Wait, we are not finished discussing this!" He went on to explain to her we purchased our tickets together with seat assignments - Together. She then said if we didn't reclaim them when checking in, 24 hours prior, the seats then became available again. What kind of logic is this?! Ugh! If I wanted to be treated like cattle I would have stuck with Southwest! We. It's back to Southwest for us. At least they are up front with their rules."

Pros: "They got me there"
Cons: "late which made me run to my next flight which was quite a hike"

Pros: "The weather in CT was inclement but the pilot made up time getting to DC and the connection to Seattle arrived ahead of schedule!"

Pros: "It was overall a wonderful flight"

Pros: "The United app was awesome so I could watch movies on my phone during the flight."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed and caused me to miss my next flight which forced me to have to stay over night in a hotel and take a new flight the next morning. I had to pay for all the extra costs of the hotel, taxis and food. It was very frustrating that they didn't hold the plane just a few minutes since there were a lot of passengers ( including myself) who ran to the gate."

Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "No leg room even for a short person like me!"

Pros: "Fight on time. Minimal turbulence. Effecient flight sttendants"
Cons: "Pesky kid sitting next to me who cried, whined & spilled his orange juice on me!!"

Pros: "The United Wi-Fi that I paid for with my frequent flyer miles and the free entertainment via the United App"

Pros: "sufficient space for luggage overhead"
Cons: "too much chatter among crew, especially during boarding and disembarking rest rooms too small - claustrophobic additional, and roomier rest rooms could help wish announcements could be delivered more slowly, better enunciated, and less slurred; often cannot be understood; one often has to guess the meaning more smiles and friendlier tones and attitude could help having window seat can be very inconvenient when leaving one's seat"

Pros: "Quick short sweet flight"
Cons: "Boarding late"

Cons: "Was told no flights for two days after flight was cancelled. Then was told we needed to switch airports via taxi on our own. Then switched to Delta airlines where I had to pay another $60 to check my bags."

Cons: "Flight was delayed therefore missed my connection"

Pros: "They checked my carry on at the gate in Hartford and said it would go through to me final destination and it wasn't in Cincinnati when I arrived. In fact that was yesterday and I still don't have my luggage."

Pros: "I ended up going through Chicago. My return flight was delayed and I missed the connecting flight and had to stay in a hotel overnight. I am still waiting for the next flight home."
