Pros: "Spacious for economy, pleasant flight attendants"
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Cons: "My personal stuff been stolen in airports"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight, which was almost 15 hours long. I give an overall 4 star review for this flight. The boarding process was pretty organized (without including the ignorant passengers who can't read their zone numbers, haha) because they called us up group by group, in a speedy process. Even inside, the cabin crew welcomed us aboard and showed us where our seats are. This leads me to my 5-star rating of the service. Very warm, friendly, and generally helpful cabin crew Qatar Airways has. They fulfilled all my needs even if they had to go out of their way. As for entertainment, I was very surprised at how many great movies they have! Especially the new ones! I would not be bored again with this selection. Food was okay to be honest. It was a hot meal that satisfied my hunger and tasted good, but maybe it's just me and airplane food. Doesn't taste right for me. And to be honest, I was cramped. Not even me but many other passengers felt like the seats were too small. Overall, Good experience!"
Pros: "Gate crew was great"
Cons: "Boarding seemed haphazard as it took quite awhile for all of the pasengers to stow their luggage and settle down."
Pros: "Dallas to Doha wheel chair service and boarding was good."
Cons: "My parents did not get wheel chair in Delhi after that long,tiring journey..this is the service airline provide,it's so disgusting..they didn't even get the porter..they had to carry the heavy luggage when they have problem in walking..I am so disappointed.what is the use of this survey."

Pros: "Selection of alcohol."
Cons: "The selection of food."
Pros: "This airline cares about service and customer care. My son was not feeling well and they attended to him and made sure he was feeling good. They even suggested taking him to the clinic at the airport, yes the airport has a medical crew on site to treat passengers."
Cons: "Seats are crammed like US airlines. Not much leg room. But still far better than flying any US airline."
Pros: "This flight had one of the best selections of movies I've seen on a flight.....a damn good thing given the 15-hr duration of the flight. I had so many screaming babies around me that the flight attendants helped me to move to another part of the plane. They were incredibly sympathetic and accommodating. Airlines from the USA could learn a thing or two from Qatar Airlines."
Cons: "Small seats (I'm fat, so this is my problem really)."
Cons: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and seemed very accommodating. The flight was on time to leave, or maybe even a few minutes early. The food was very good. Overall it was a very comfortable flight.Oh and the little toiletry bag was a very nice touch. I for sure used the socks in there and the toothbrush was bonus."

Cons: "Food could have been better, I mean the quantity could have been more. The attendants were not so nice. Breakfast was only a half slice of bread. Please increase the quantity of food."

Cons: "Not enough leg and elbow room. For a flight this long, seats should be a little more comfortable."
Pros: "Service was exceptional. Good was good and departures were timely."
Pros: "Flight from Mumbai to Doha - bit cramped legroom in economy. Food and comfort could improve."
Cons: "Did not like anything with Qatar airways"
Cons: "The crew service is very bad, they are rude. And the thing from dubai to Hyderabad one of the attendants doesn't even help with the luggage, don't close the top shelf behaved as if untounchavility prevailed which Is very bad"
Cons: "Everything!! My seat was not extra wide, it was broke and would not recline...14hr flight!! Entertainment system didn’t work right."
Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Seat was okay and the laptop bag considered an extra carry-on was not good and I had to consolidate."
Cons: "Qatar airways allowed us to take both separately and we could take up exit row if available without payment"
Cons: "A 15 hour noisy flight. Careless mothers and their screaming kids. No Manors on telling them to be quiet or stop screaming. They played with their kids in an awfully loud sound."
Cons: "No it was good"
Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."
Pros: "Thank you"
Cons: "- We were made to sit in flight for 2 hours. Then all were offloaded. - We were made to sit on airport for flight for about 6 hours. - I was not allowed to exit or reschedule the flight until i waited for 6 hours. - Still its not confirmed whether the flight will depart on given time. - I missed my important work in India. - The new flight arrives Mumbai midnight 2:30 am which is very hectic for me. I paid more for the flight at the time of booking knowing it will reach in the evening."
Pros: "The leg space and the entertainment. The crew were very nice."
Cons: "The bathroom must be kept cleaner."
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Cons: "My seat was booked on Ile. it was chanded to window which I hate"
Cons: "Horrible service. Flight delayed for almost 4.5 hrs at the DFW. Missed connecting flight and requested them to switch another carrier. Request was denied and put in a red eye flight for next day. Pathetic Airlines"
Pros: "The exit row due to my size good choice"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Crew is great and on their game"
Cons: "Stuck next to and surrounded by crying babies on a long haul flight is terrible. So uncomfortable! Wish I could afford to upgrade but I suppose I must tough it out:/"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "There was no hotel reservation and I have to pay out of pocket. Why? I need a refund. You guys are responsible for that."
Pros: "Nice travel from Dallas to Dubai and I am happy."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."

Pros: "All other service was ok except not giving hotel room for staying for the purpose of connection..."
Cons: "Stay over night for connection and emirate dine giving hotel"
Cons: "Firstly the check in for boarding pass took forever since there was only one counter that charged for extra luggage. I had to line up 3 times to get a boarding pass and almost missed my flight even though I came 2 hrs earlier. Secondly emirates does not give you Hotel even if your layover is for 14 hrs. Since my airline for final destination is another airline they said I don't qualify for it. It's a nightmare. I have travelled all other airline but by far emirates is the worst airline I travel. Terrible experience and I will never fly Emirates."
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"

Pros: "Everything rom booking to boarding to reaching the destination."
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "They have been a nightmare to deal with and outright unethical. I do not plan to use Kayak any more due to this situation"
Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"
Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"
Pros: "I first flew with Emirates in 2007 on a flight from Dubai to Johannesburg. Since then I have used Emirates to fly to Europe, India and China. I've never had a bad experience. The comfort, entertainment and food is always outstanding. The crews are always top rated. I hope to keep flying Emirates for many years to come."

Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"

Cons: "Food variety should be increased."
Cons: "Only the toilets very small"
Cons: "There is only a food box which contains a small sandwich, a small cake and a small cup of fruit pieces with a drink of 250ml ice tea for this three hour flight. I would think this kind of catering is not good enough."

Pros: "Cathay pacific is the best airline"

Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Cons: "Service, self service snacks, attendant never came for anything and crew was rude, passed out customs form when exiting plane"
Pros: "Flight attendants really attentive and friendly. Flight arrived right on time and at a close gate. Good food."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was very attentive. Loved Cathay Pacific’s signature non alcoholic drink”Ocean Breeze”."
Cons: "The food was really not at the level you would expect. There was only a pork and a fish option. The fish was fishy and the dessert was gelatin cake thing that did not appease my dessert craving."
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "Staff onboard were extremely helpful."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific lounge (The Peir) didn't broadcast boarding announcements so we nearly missed it."
Pros: "The crew was very organized. I travelled with a wheel chair assist friend, they made sure we were comfortable. We arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The food choices are well thought off. My only concern is the tenderness of the beef."
Pros: "The crew is excellent. Travelling with baby and they take care of us attentively"
Cons: "Delayed 30min in the end."
Cons: "Gate staff was not patient and friendly. No advanced notification before flight cancellation. Poor communication after flight cancellation. No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident. We waited for 2 hours at the counter for explanation and information for re-arrangement for the flight. Really disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Poor food and very basic (old movies) entertainment - always delayed"
Pros: "Most crew very helpful. Great movie and music selection."
Cons: "Middle row every time and difficult to get out.(economy). Out of the Asian meal again for people in the back of the plane. Was unable to check in on line for some reason, but taken care of at airport."
Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"
Cons: "We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Small portion of food"
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Pros: "Very spacious and comfortable seats, great service, good food."
Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good tasting meals, and excellent service!"
Cons: "My tray table was dirty...Given the quick flight change over it was not an issue. That's my only complaint!"

Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Flight was late by 4hrs No food was supplied they said food is over"
Cons: "Leg room us bad especilly when the one in front of you recline the seat"
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Hong Kong to JFK. I was given another flight but had to wait seven hours. Meal vouchers did not cover enough for how long I waited. New flight was not direct like the original one so there was a layover in Vancouver. I was supposed to get back to New York on February 2nd at night, but arrived around 6:00am on the 3rd. This was a major inconvenience since I had school 3 hours after I arrived and then work. I would suggest to not have arriving flights and connecting departing flights less than hour and thirty minutes to two hours apart. Only for delay issues."
Cons: "On the way to Newark was terrible because of the food. Both dinner and breakfast half of my row were served last compare to everyone else sitting before us or after us. The rice dishes were gone both times when the food got to me. I can understand if it was just one meal, but it was disappointing that I wasn't able to eat rice during the whole 15 hours of trip. It would also be understandable if the row right before me wasn't served 20 mins prior to us, and the row right after me wasn't served 15 mins before us. I just couldn't understand how it was arranged. Maybe I should've ask for service right before they start serving meal."
Pros: "I would like most of the employees of Cathay Pacific works in your company, they are very nice and also very kind to treat customers and kindly help us to solve problems during our traveling. I really appreciated. and I can say nothing but many thanks to all of Cathay Pacific employees. Ying Tao, SUN"
Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "3 and a half hour delay at airport, with no compensation from Cathay."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very kind and helpful. Excellent service throughout the flight. The in-flight entertainment screen had a bunch of new films and series to choose from, that's a big plus. The dinner and breakfast were not that special, but very good considering it was served at 36 000 feet."
Cons: "I flew in Economy, and the legroom was awful for me. (I'm around 190cm tall.) The seats were crammed so tight I had trouble staying comfortable even when awake, and I didn't sleep too good."
Pros: "The crew seemed genuinely nice and helpful"
Pros: "Good service. Flight attendants are nice, food is not bad. Seats are not bad for economy."
Cons: "Quality of plane and associated service. Seat in premium economy as broken and unsafe (back wouldn't stay vertical). Similar to other flight they put the lights out and you struggle to get service."
Pros: "I paid extra for a window seat. Didn’t get it. The plane was hot. The seats were uncomfortable. When we landed we were stuck on the ground for an hour waiting for a bus to take us to the terminal."
Cons: "I wish I was on a different airline on the way home."
Pros: "The leg room and the recline was the best I’ve had in a budget economy class, and I was not expecting a snack and two full meals. They also gave each of us a flower when boarding. It was a charming touch."
Pros: "The airconditioned lounge and shower for business class after sweating in line through security. Lay flat seats."
Cons: "Headsets had a weird jack and weren’t noise cancelling, wish it left a couple hours earlier, and for some reason, my feet kept bottoming out in the footwell but I wasn’t fully reckoned."
Pros: "Crew was nice, fresh frangipani flower a nice touch. Seats in economy were BAD. No room and uncomfortable. Breakfast was nice fruit and the omelette was pretty basic"
Pros: "Liked the tahitian atmosphere on the plane."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and hurt my back."
Cons: "I have purchased the priority pass but it didn't work. Was very disappointed. I could have saved money by not purchasing it."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was astonishingly good. I really was amazed with the whole crew sense of service and kindness."
Cons: "Hard to say.. really"
Pros: "The crew's service, the food and availability of food and drink throughout the whole flight."
Cons: "The cabin temperature, it was too warm."
Cons: "There were not gluten free options for my boyfriend who has a gluten allergy and we put in the gluten free option when asked on the initial questionnaire. My son got food poisoning from the food."
Pros: "I was able to pick a seat with no one next to me and gathered 2 blankets and 4 pillows and sleep pretty well. I also appreciated boarding back to front and departing on time! Woo! TV Screens were new and updated which was also nice."
Cons: "The movie selection was a lot of sad and intense dramas. A few more comedy's and light hearted films would have been preferable."
Pros: "They board back to front which saves a lot of hassle with overhead bags and such and keeps things moving. I appreciated that all the flight attendants spoke French and English and were very helpful when I needed anything. My flights to and from Tahiti were both smooth sailing. My flight back was a red eye and was quiet so I was able to sleep most of the way."
Cons: "Whoa. That food was TERRIBLE. I'm usually lenient with free airplane food but wow, I don't even know what some of it was. I my second meal looked like fish and turned out to be pork (I think?). They also only came around with the beverage cart once in the 8 hour flight (just before our first meal); I had to ring my call button to get water. The plane was pretty dated as well. I've seen worse but the screens were dated and all of the movies were fairly depressing. First, I'd suggest a couple more comedy's or rom-coms. Even a couple extra family friendly cartoons would be preferable to all the war/drama/dark options. Second, I'd suggest having the movies on demand rather than play one after another where passengers have to scroll through channels and keep catching movies part way through. A simple solution would be to have WiFi and streaming on flights which was also not available. This should be expected with international flight and would allow for on demand movies and music rather than the dated system currently in place."
Cons: "Staff was not attentive in my cabin. English translation of instructions difficult to understand. Food was terrible. Bread was hard. Meal was inedible and not anything resembling breakfast. Cabin was freezing."
Pros: "They have definitely improved in the few years since I last flew with them. The food is still really good for airplane food. Also the service by flight attendants is friendly and attentive. The entertainment offered quite a few options as there were quite a number of movies if different genres and recent releases. I would definitely recommend them over some more expensive airlines."
Pros: "Easy boarding in Bora Bora, & speedy arrival in Moorea"
Cons: "High cost to make any changes to a reservation"
Pros: "Faa’A International Airport is NOT air conditioned and there can be long lines in the check-in counter for economy class. If you are flying Business Class, the VIP Lounge is a must. It is the only air conditioned room at the airport."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Pros: "seat in business class was fair to poor- unable to fully recline\ food was poor"
Cons: "seating and food"
Pros: "Comfortable airline, good food, friendly service. I would take it again."
Cons: "I don't know if this is representative but we were late both ways (2 hrs and 1 hr). Differently from other airline I've used to do this trip they don't go and offer water during the flight. You can go to get some drinks yourself of course but this is not always easy when your neighbor is sleeping."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "We waited in a shuttle for 30 minutes to be transported to the plane. We then had a three hour delay on the tarmac. Were not once offered water or refreshments during the 3-hour delay, and were only given two brief updates. During the 8 hour flight, refreshments were offered only twice. The food was ok - not terrible, not great. By the time they got to us (row 27), they didn’t have both meal options available. We took what we could get. And, all this after paying $1500 per person for our economy seats. I can fly LAX to Bali for 1/3 the price."
Cons: "Three and a half hour delay (while lying to us about why it was delayed) missed my connecting and got to sleep in an airport with no accommodation or recompense on either end. "Island Time" not acceptable for air travel."
Pros: "great entertainment options"
Cons: "horrid food"
Pros: "great options for entertainment."
Cons: "The plane food was horrible."
Cons: "For the crazy price and booking the tickets together, I have never not sat next to the person you booked with. The airline sat us in middle seats 4 rows away from each other (there was no reason for it since we both had single people on the aisles next to us). Really ruined the trip and made nothing about the flight worth commenting on. I won't ever fly this airline again."

Pros: "Frendly crew, drinks unlimited, and lovely time overall"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the food wasn't good at all, because I was traveling with a cast on my left foot I asked for a front seat a week before my flight and when I asked at the counter at the airport they say that they wouldn't be able to give me a front seat, the lady at the counter wasn't nice at all, she didn't help and it felt that she wasn't trying to help me or to manege any other solution."

Pros: "Plentiful blankets, pillow, headphones and earplugs. Food and drink readily available."
Cons: "Seats are too small/narrow with little leg room for a 6' person. I was seated in 45A, the last row against the window. The seat backs do not recline yet, the seats in front of us so so, we end up with the guy ahead of my in my lap with zero leg room as my knees were pressed down by the reclined passenger in front of me. Very uncomfortable to not be able to move for 8 hours!!!!"

Cons: "We spent a long time on the tarmac at LAX. The explanation was that they were making sure everyone's bags got on board...which I felt was very odd. We left late, and arrived in Pape'ete 45 minutes late. Otherwise, the experience was excellent."
Pros: "This is a direct flight from Paris to LA so you don't have to pick up your luggage to go through customs when you go back to the US. You save a lot of time! I had 2 seats for myself. The cabin looks very attractive because of its colors. The Tahitian music is relaxing. It is also nice to see the crew with a Tahitian outfit, Tahitian pearls... You kind of travel without going to Tahiti! The crew is always very pleasant. The food is better than with any American airline."

Pros: "Pros: good selection of free movies during inflight, usb chargers, nice staff, large overhead bins, 2-4-2 seats great for couples"
Cons: "No online check in or seat selection (come on, it's 2016)! Disorganized boarding process, seats are very small and uncomfortable for 8hr flights, no individual AC Control. Food is not even discernible as to what you're attempting to eat. It's the type of food comedians used to make jokes about. Planes are outdated and need upgrades"
Pros: "Impeccable service"

Cons: "I did not enjoy the tiny, cramped seats - the smallest I've been squeezed into in many years. Hard bottom and narrow; when the girl in front of me put her seat back, her headrest was right in front of my teeth. Also, they use the old school dual-headphones that don't sit flat on your ears and there was no jack available for personal ear buds. Opportunities for improvement!"
Pros: "Fiji Airways price"
Cons: "I don’t know what the use is of bashing this airlines on their horrible service because they don’t improve. They cancelled my flight and would not put me on a flight to NAD or provide accommodations UNTIL I argued about how the flight change was NOT my fault but theirs and disagreed to pay extra."

Cons: "My knees while sitting upright drive into the seat in front of me. No extra legroom seats available. Please start saving these for people who actually need them. Also, boarding was like cattle hearding, lack of organization caused anxiety ... albeit my wife and I were amused by people without direction."
Pros: "This flight was cancelled due to storms in the Pacific. Fiji Airways put passengers into a hotel and paid for meals."
Cons: "Fiji Airways had poor communication with us about our onward flights, causing us to wonder what was going on. In the end, we were scheduled through another airline 3 days after our flight was scheduled to leave."

Pros: "Covered by headline"
Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."
