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"

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."

Pros: "Same as before"
Cons: "Same as before"

Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."

Pros: "The food its disgusting"
Cons: "Better service and better food"

Pros: "Seat more comfortable ."
Cons: "there is need to improve food & entertainment section."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."

Pros: "The crew was super amazing and went to all extent to make our journey with infant comfortable"

Pros: "Entertainment, crew was very hard-working."
Cons: "Economy seats are way too tight, had severe problems with knee room when seat in front was reclined. A terrible passenger just forward of me had no regard to this issue and refused to be cooperative. Food was lukewarm at best and was on mildly appetizing in economy."

Pros: "Plenty legroom with Qatar. Food good."
Cons: "Everything good as usual"

Pros: "Everything! It just awesome"
Cons: "Nothing can be better, an awesome flight"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "Amazing airlines. Lots of food and snacks. Because of a long layover they even got us a hotel room for free!"
Cons: "Very strict luggage rules, even flying international we were only allowed a handbag on board, not our carryon"

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "Behavior of the crews"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

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."

Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"

Pros: "- Service - Food Quality"
Cons: "- Food Quantity - Entertainment System - very limited (or old) options - No Internet - Leg Space is challenge"

Pros: "great entertainment system friendly staff"
Cons: "very cramped flight, even when just partially full light food for an 8 hour flight"

Cons: "My personal stuff been stolen in airports"

Cons: "The seats were cramped"

Pros: "All around a great experience."

Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."

Pros: "I havn't flown a lot of international flights, but Qatar Airways is now my favorite"

Pros: "I like everything about the flight"
Cons: "Everything was ok"

Cons: "my flight from Boston to Doha was deleyed and Qatar Airways have no arrangements for the passengers at the airport, I spent more then 15 hours in the transit on those chairs, there was no help provided by the airline"

Pros: "Space, food, service, handling"
Cons: "That I could not and cannot retrieve my flight on the Qatar Airlines website."

Pros: "Nothig"
Cons: "Everythingv"

Pros: "Food was good. Service was great. Bathrooms were clean. Refreshing experience."

Pros: "First time I got ice cream on a plane"
Cons: "Low calorie meals were horrible."

Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"

Pros: "Service is fantastic. Comfort in business class. Great food. You can't ask for nothing better. The lounge in Doha is breath taking."

Cons: "The seats could me more comfortable . The one that flew from Doha to Mumbai was way more comfortable than the one from Houston to Doha ."

Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."

Pros: "Customer service was super! Entertainment package was nice, many current movies worth watching ."
Cons: "No Wifi on flight !!"

Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."

Pros: "The service during the flight was excellent, workers showed all kind of concern and care. Thank you."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."

Pros: "Except turbulences everything was ok and nice .."

Pros: "New airplane. Friendly air hostesses and top notch service.. British Airways can say goodbye to my money"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The Steward on this flight was excellent. Very attentive and pleasant. He asked at the end of my flight how was everything. Food was good ."
Cons: "This flight was better than the flight going out to Doha , then to Abu Dhabi. You guys were late landing,and as a result I almost missed my connecting flight, was rushed thru the airport like a lunatic by one of your Reps. Then was told my luggage may not be in Abu Dhabi when I arrive, which it was not. My paid for seat wasn't available and had to sit in the back. Had to fill out a lost luggage report in Abu Dhabi. Was promised my luggage by 4:30 pm . Didn't receive it until 2:30 am next day. Missed my whole first day of vacation as I had no clothes , toiletries, etc . Very angry, and feel I should get a substantial discount on my next flight in March to Dubai. Totally unacceptable !!!!!!!"

Pros: "Liked the entertainment options with a large movie catalog."
Cons: "Customer service by phone, boarding process, width of seats, speed of cabin service."

Pros: "Qatar airlines blew me away! The food was top notch and frequent, the flight attendants were incredibly nice and attentive, the planes and entertainment were world class aND they were affordable for our flight from Boston to Bangkok."

Cons: "They knew we would never make the connection flight and still they told us it will be fine after adding a stop which changes the schedules. When we arrived the connection plane was still there but we were never registered on it. I will ask for compensations even if I have to take a lawyer."

Cons: "Again the menu wasnt good. Also as the plane was smaller the economy was a little claustrophobic"

Cons: "My parents came from India to U.S. They had wheelchair, but they didn't get it and they have knee problem they don't know English too. So I had very bad experience with Qatar."

Cons: "Offer cappuccino along with coffee, tea, and juice."

Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"

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: "Crew was ok Food was good Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Overall was good and we definitely travel again"

Cons: "N/a"

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."

Cons: "Crew staff"

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"

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"

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: "Good entertainment. Good vegetarian selection of food. Polite and friendly crew."

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: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."

Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"

Cons: "That no accommodations were made nor provided"

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."

Cons: "Very late. Caused us to miss outlet rental car. Left us stranded at the airport."

Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"

Pros: "The crew were excellent, very helpful and friendly. The most friendly crew I have flown with. Qantas could learn something from Emirates."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great leg room"

Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "The price of the tickets that I booked was not valid. They first declined my card and then they told me that the price has changed."

Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

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: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"

Pros: "Excellent take off and landing. excellent service provided."

Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"

Pros: "Staff were great. Food was good."

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

Pros: "Like everything"

Pros: "Food and entertainment seemed a bit upscale."
Cons: "Young air hostesses with a bit of attitude. Wouldn't talk, just shake their heads in a weird way, to ask about what I wanted to drink or eat. None of my luggage made it."

Pros: "Please Refund my ticket"
Cons: "Lost baggage. It had important stuff"

Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"
Cons: "Attitude of Emirates ground staff and crew. Compare to Emirates Singapore Airpines staff are more polite and helpful."

Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seats in economy coach; nice selection of movies; the best airline food I've had; while I don't speak Arabic, the language is beautiful & melodic & the inclusion of the non-Western cultural perspective was refreshing. The A380 is an impressive jet."
Cons: "Cost too much to make flight changes when the sudden cancellation of my meeting in Lusaka (Zambia) required me to return home early. Since my trip was a volunteer mission and not a money-making business venture, absorbing that expense ($200 for the return to the US and another $200 to get from Boston to Washington, DC on the JetBlue connector) made what had become an expensive waste of money even more so."

Pros: "Very good service"

Pros: "Good seat size and space, very comfortable. Excellent entertainment."
Cons: "One food selection was good, another just plain bad."

Cons: "Alaska messed up my baggage handling at Seattle. I arrived on an international Emirates flight from Dubai. I made sure that my two luggage were collected and transferred after customs clearance to Alaska terminal. But alas Alaska sent only one luggage and made me wait for almost 2 hours at PDX airport after my arrival. They don't even have a courtesy to acknowledge and be gracious about their mistake."

Pros: "The A380 is a beautiful aircraft. Smooth and quiet. Great movie choices. Crew friendly and mostly efficient. Great value for money!"
Cons: "Confusion with wrong menus being handed out - on 2 flights!"

Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."
