Pros: "See previous notes."
Cons: "See previous notes."

Cons: "Very nice services"

Pros: "Super easy"

Cons: "More leg room"

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: "Very prompt and efficient"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Not being scammed on bag charges."

Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"

Cons: "I was not able to travel. When I reached the airport, I was told that I needed a transit visa for my 1.5 hr stopover in Auckland."

Pros: "Upgrading to Skycoach giving extra leg room was well worth it."

Cons: "Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount."

Pros: "Generally Excellent."
Cons: "After years of traveling with a Personal Assitive device (many times on ANZ), the pilot refused to carry the device. It is still stuck in Sydney, although they say they will deliver to our home."

Pros: "Our stewardess was very helpful for our tight connection. She helped with instructions on finding our next gate and gave specific information on making the airport easier to maneuver."

Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"

Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."

Pros: "Good seat, very pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment so can't score that. Basic snacks"

Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."

Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."

Cons: "departed to late .. nearly missed connecting Auck- Hong Kong. Suitcase was left behind .. will receive 498 hrs later .. not good enough"

Cons: "Over all it's ok good"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly as scheduled."
Cons: "The waiting"

Pros: "Excellent crew"

Pros: "Carryon luggage is restricted to 7 kg. Conflicts with worldcstandards and then they apply it to foreigners, but not to Kiwis! They would not let me take on my roller bag, but many locals got to! 9"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The pilot made such a smooth landing, it was one of the best I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Probably just the delay and time management for boarding"

Pros: "Early departure, smooth operation, efficient service"
Cons: "Seats a bit close for Clive’s 6 foot frame"

Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask. The flight was on time."

Pros: "The ease of boarding"

Pros: "No mess airline, fast and efficient"

Pros: "Arrangement when flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Cancel the flight without letting me know"

Pros: "No frills, efficient boarding, on time! BUT Is it worth it?"
Cons: "New Zealand Air is ultimately cheaper AFTER you pay Jetstar for your luggage and seat. HIDDEN COSTS EVERYWHERE. But it may be worth it. Your call."

Cons: "1 hour delay on take off"

Cons: "The floor next to my seat looked like someone had emptied their chip packet on it. The plane was late arriving but surely there’s time to vacuum up the mess!"

Pros: "Great boarding process. Happy/smiling staff. Great experience overall."
Cons: "No onboard entertaibment but it is a budget airline on a short haul flight so...."

Pros: "The crew were friendly enough and were accommodating in handling my baggage"
Cons: "The plane was an older model airbus configured to maximize seating. as a result the flight was uncomfortable. You think this may be the reason for the fairly low fare but they stick it to you with baggage fees. The maximum is 15kgs [ most airlines allow 23kgs ] In addition you have to pay for all items on board. There is no such thing as free coffee or soft drinks. I would recommend this airline if you have little or no baggage and are going on a day trip to Wellington or Auckland. Otherwise, stick with Air New Zealand."

Cons: "I thought it was poor I had to pay $60 for carry on luggage. Absolute rip off"

Cons: "They damaged our luggage"

Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "On time departure/arrival"

Pros: "We didn't crash and everything apart from the leg room being smaller was okay."
Cons: "They have taken two inches off the leg room. I know cause my legs now don't fit sitting straight."

Pros: "Great price."

Pros: "courtesy baggage for carry on"
Cons: "Late flight 1.5 hr delay....so missed business meeting...will not use again for business or time critical travel And seated next to a fat passenger who spilled into my seat...most uncomfortable flight leaning into aisle to get some space meant I was bumped by the crew. lame experience all round"

Pros: "I was rebooked to JQ7001 which is VERY disappointing as it leaves Sydney 6 hours later than JQ199, my original flight. Reason given by Jetstar: JQ199 has been closed. An outright lie as JQ199 departed Sydney as per schedule today. I"

Pros: "Service was awesome0000"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "Crew very helpful thanks. A bit rough to have to pay 4 baggage in top of paying 4 flight.On international flights, yr baggage is included in the price ."

Pros: "Ground staff and attendants were great!"
Cons: "No entertainment and have to pay for food, not even a drink."

Pros: "Nothing, never, ever go on Jetstar"
Cons: "No explanation, no time table, awful service."

Pros: "it got us there"
Cons: "2.5 hrs late an no idea when we were leaving"

Cons: "That I had to pay another $60 for the cost of checking a bag."

Cons: "Not even a cup of water available in flight??"

Pros: "Easy, efficient"
Cons: "Very expensive"

Pros: "quick boarding options."
Cons: "No snacks or drink options. Also I think paying for luggage is a lot more than it should be, especially if not done ahead of time. Seats are not that comfortable."

Pros: "I am still in denpasar"

Cons: "Delays in both directions"

Pros: "They left on time."
Cons: "The Jetstar checkin staff. They are not very friendly. I was a few kilos overweight and I had nothing but grief from them - as well as my purse put on the scales - which added to the weight. I have never had my purse put on the scales before. I ended up having to pay $160.00 Australian for a few kilos. My fare did not even cost that much. As far as I am concerned Jetstar need a watchdog to take this up on travellers behalf. How can a few filos cost that much - when you can book your luggage through for $25.00."

Cons: "Left late and ripped the handle off my case."

Pros: "Easy booking"
Cons: "Maybe"

Cons: "I made a small gift purchase in Queenstown and they were going to charge me $70 to put it under the plane. They could have easily put it in a small box, put it under the plane, and charge me $25 at the most for it. Instead I had to give it to the clerk at the counter because I only paid $20 for the item. I didn't mind having to put it under the plane but for $70?"

Pros: "Efficient. Friendly. On time."
Cons: "Lack of leg room like all airlines"

Cons: "Got charged 15$ per kilo for our bags even tho we couldn't check in online"
