Airline reviews

Cons: "Please have the option to order Kosher meal!! The 1st air company that I use, that don’t offer this basic service!! Ridiculous!!"

Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"

Cons: "It was great. . .We thought a 16 hr flight would be gruling, but it was not at all!! Comfortable seats with plenty of room and lots of bathrooms. The flight attendants were awesome"

Pros: "I had to cancel the flight because the have customer service very poor in air New Zealand vancouver BC agents the could not solve a simple problem in esta that happened to me similarly in Australia with the same problem of esta if they are not efficient they should be replaced there many good candidate for airlines in Vancouver BC"
Cons: "Improve customer services"

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

Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Overall great"

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

Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good"

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."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crumbs still on my seat when I boarded"

Pros: "Seat hard on older aircraft, needs new cushioning on seat"

Cons: "Very Slow meal service, had to ring for sparkling water when we had asked the attendant during the meal service. Took 20 minutes."

Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"

Pros: "Service and biz check in"

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

Cons: "i was a little disappointed in seating .... felt like a Sardine ... unlike my flight from Brisbane to Auckland on my way to LA... which surprised me,"

Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"

Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."

Pros: "Punctuality. Confortable plane."

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: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"

Pros: "Ditto to the above!!!"
Cons: "The on ground experience in Los Angeles was horrible (not Air New Zealand's fault). Made our plane (a scheduled flight?) park well over a mile from the terminals and bus passengers into customs. LA Customs is always a hassle, way too long of lines and agents with an attitude. One custom officer (the final check through) was great, the rest were grouches."

Pros: "The flight attendants were great and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. I had a metal piece sticking on my hip from the seat or seatbelt, not sure."

Cons: "Unable to check-in online because of an international connection. Also, we need to pay extra for everything."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Awful service, they put me waiting for more than an hour to say that I was in the overbook list so they would need to include me in a flight 3 hours later in another airline. Outrageous!"

Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"

Pros: "A little cramped on the domestic flight, but for the hour or so from Christchurch to Auckland, it was acceptable. I was impressed that ANZ did a quick meal service on this short flight. The crew was great - very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Close quarters between seats."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment Good ground staff at Auckland check in Hospitable cabin crew Food was palatable"
Cons: "Although I had mistakenly arrived many hours early for my flight and traveled with the airline back and forth across the Pacific, ANZ personnel would not admit me to their lounge to wait in relative comfort."

Pros: "Cool temps in plane"

Pros: "Comfortable flight and service"

Pros: "Wasn't too cold. Entertainment was good, needed more newer show/ movie options,"
Cons: "The touch screen wasn't working and was very slow, seats weren't comfy, felt like we were all squished together."

Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."

Pros: "entertainment, cleanliness, comfort"
Cons: "seats go far back in front of your face"

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

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Cramped and squeezed in for a miserable flight."

Pros: "Not very much"
Cons: "The crew in my area didnt like her job or passengers in general and it was obvious."

Cons: "Nobody believes in offering decent food anymore. Flying was so much better 25 yrs ago. Soon we will have to pay to use the toilet."

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."

Cons: "For some unknown reason, I can not lower my seat when I wanted to get some sleep. As the air plane took off at 11:55pm, I was really sleep. After 10 minutes of maneuver, I decided to ask a flight attendant to help me figure out what happened to my seat. I pressed the button asking for attendant and waited for 5 minutes, no response. So I pressed the button again. IT showed that I had already pressed the button. So I kept waiting. But then no one ever came for me the 9 hours until it was time for the meal before getting off. Sitting straight sleeping was a really terrible experience!"

Pros: "I love air new zealand. Watched dr strange and had yummy breakfast. Crew very friendly"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "."

Cons: "If it was on time"

Pros: "We were treated very rudely."
Cons: "We were treated very rudely. We should’ve taken another airline"

Cons: "A mishap when allocating seats online, when i chose seats for us online (my fault i left it too late) there weren't any together...but the staff rectified this..."

Cons: "Disembarking.... No gate so had to get bus to shuttle to terminal... 1 bus for nearly 1000 passengers.... Took nearly 90 minutes to get off plane."

Pros: "fewer rows of seats in my section upstairs quiet - no children darkness for the overnight flight"

Pros: "offer every passenger a iPad mini"
Cons: "Poor landing, not confortable from decending to touch down"

Pros: "Poor food. Not as good as domestic."
Cons: "Helpful and aware."

Pros: "This was an Emirates flight. Codeshare means you get attentive staff and decent food. Always happy to be on a Qantas codeshare partner instead of the Qantas planes. The gap from Emirates back to Qantas is vast."

Pros: "Quantas was great"

Pros: "Movie selection pretty good"
Cons: "Terminal at LAX only allowed use of Admiral Club not Qantas lounge LAX international. 5 hr layover. No food. Poor facilities. 2 drink voucher. Not up to Qantas standard by a long shot. More importantly seats economy on American Airlines flight fro LAX to SYD very narrow and incredibly uncomfortable. Unable to rest comfortably to any degree or be able to have a meal when seat in front reclined and i am not a big guy. I fly often for work and also pay for Qantas club but this experience is making me think very differently about booking flights according to what the codeshare airline is. Dissapointed and not what I expect the standard of a Qantas codeshare airline to be."

Pros: "The Qantas service is generally good, and they do acknowledge Platinum members. Also the boarding delay was well advised."
Cons: "More the Dubai airport side, and the fact that the loung boarding arrangements are not intuitive."

Pros: "Efficient, reliable and good service overall."
Cons: "The crew do look about double the age of some other airlines and some (not all by any means) seem a bit over it. The return flight was much better than the outbound, on which the food seemed the same in premium as in economy, and was pretty ordinary."
