Pros: "Swap my two reviews! This one is for the flight going to London when I had the Skycouch! That was fabulous."
Pros: "great seats + wifi. Was treated like a human being."
Pros: "The crew was polite, efficient and prompt"
Cons: "The food quality needs improvement!"
Cons: "More food would have been better"
Pros: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."
Cons: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."
Pros: "Strong crew service is the highlight of flying Air New Zealand. Plane comfort is good, with nice ambient lighting, decent seats and reasonably spacious toilets. At least for now, they have in-seat entertainment screens with lots of current offerings. Our flight had free wi-fi, a real plus."
Cons: "Boarding with Air New Zealand at Heathrow was complex and poorly organised when compared to the smooth and efficient process at LAX. This has been the case each time I have flown this same route with this airline."
Cons: "They have to provide better food."
Pros: "Great crew, great food, spacious and nice. Great experience overall."
Pros: "The plane, seat, food, amenities, staff, etc were all world class"
Cons: "LAX immigration is a nightmare but not NZ fault."
Pros: "yes amazing crew! thank you so much!"
Cons: "perfect already!"
Pros: "I liked that there was food available and that they offered complimentary snacks and drinks. Some of the crew members were nice and offered good service. I liked that they offered some type of entertainment and free wifi."
Cons: "I didn't like that some of the crew members were not very nice. I also disliked that some of the crew members drove the food/beverage cart violently through the isles and saw as one of the crew members rammed into another person's leg, to only say "oh sorry" and kept on going. This same crew member missed picking up the trash from an entire row and was throwing trash on the floor. She was more interested in caring for a baby on board (not sure if it was her daughter or family member) than the rest of the passengers. I also didn't like the seats were so close to each other, the person in front of me almost hit my face when he reclined his seat all the way back. There wasn't much room to breath let alone stretch."
Pros: "Please read notes above -"
Pros: "Excellent movies available. Decent food, regular water service, and pleasant staff. Will definitely look to fly Air New Zealand again."
Cons: "Not enough legroom. But I'm 6'2, so it's the same on all airlines."
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Decent meals, complimentary drinks including alcohol, more room between seats than some carriers"
Cons: "Seats are not as well padded as some carriers which becomes important on long flights. Heathrow gates are very long distances for anyone with mobility issues and switching terminals is confusing if not done regularly. Onboard staff was helpful. On board entertainment was free and varied. No WiFi?"
Pros: "Was a little more leg room... makes all the difference"
Cons: "Was pretfy much Ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the informati N at the gate kept changing. Regular announcements that we would board in 10 Minutes. And hen we didn’t and then another announcement of 10 minutes etc Process was confusing. Four different lines with signage that was too low to be seen by anyone except those who were up front. Employees were flustered and having arguments on phone in presence of those boarding. Led to more chaos and uneasiness"
Pros: "No security on this regional flight; made it simple to board. Very quiet for a turboprop aircraft. Boarding was delayed and not well announced."
Pros: "Veer smooth ride. Very nice crew. Great service"
Pros: "The service is great as well as the food!"
Cons: "Paid for business class so I could Relax and sleep on the 10+ hour flight. Unfortunately, I was in seat 1G which was adjacent to the galley and storage compartments for the flight crew. Literally, every 15 minutes, someone in the flight crew was bumping my seat/bed - and waking me up. Never once got an apology. So pissed off I paid extra for business class when I would've gotten more sleep in a middle seat in coach."
Pros: "Paid extra $100 for 2”premium “seats. What a joke. And no entertainment for an 11hour flight!!"
Cons: "Food was ok for airplane food"
Cons: "The middle seats need to go back to 3 not 4. It would have made it a much more comfortable flight(since it was a non stop from Heathrow to LA)."
Pros: "The staff were very kind. The amendies (pillow, blanket and headphones) were great. The airplane food and wine selection were nice."
Pros: "Customer service and Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Delayed by 45 minutes"
Pros: "Service was great, kids were comfortable entertained and I loved the movie selection."
Cons: "Food wasn't good but that is low priority for me"
Pros: "Cabin attendants kind, friendly"
Pros: "How caring and involved the flight crew made everyone comfortable during the long haul."
Cons: "Hard to find anything that was wrong with my flight"
Pros: "Crew, ground and flight crew, were all so friendly and accommodating. Great access to free snacks/drinks, but the best was the seats with the footrests that lift all the way up to form a couch, even for those of us who aren't able to fly business class, but are frequent flyers."
Cons: "The video system wasn't as good as say, Virgin or B.A., but it's such a small issue, compared to the superior comfort of coach in Air New Zealand to the other steerage-like coach classes."
Cons: "Temperature on the plane kept shifting from freezing cold to too hot."
Pros: "Enjoyed gluten free meal enjoyed inflight entertainment"
Cons: "a little squashed in seating"
Cons: "No wifi. Limited entertainment. Seats not comfortable. Food was basic."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Boarding from last row first"
Cons: "Food was just okay."
Pros: "Handsome, kind and efficient crew. Good amount of space in and around my seat. I was not cramped, although I was in the economy section. The plane interior was indeed nice. Power outlets (both USB and 110V DC) in my seat (I assume then, every seat had that). I fly few times a year between the West Coast and Europe and my overall flight experience on this flight I think was the best one I've seen in years. Food, quality and selection was good. Nice wines in economy. Sufficient number of clean, sufficiently roomy and well stocked toilets. The fare rate I was able to get was outstanding and contributed to the overall satisfaction. Even my neighbor, in the seat next to me was very polite, quiet and pleasure to travel with (though here New Zealand Air perhaps had less of an influence)."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, crew is always very friedly and great with kids. They are always on time and very helpul. I always look for Air Newzealand before I fly!"
Pros: "The food and service was great"
Pros: "I liked the video console. Loved the wine. Everything was great."
Cons: "Wish all seats in economy could have a footrest. Sleeping on a long flight is very uncomfortable without one."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and adjustable with tons of legroom. There was a bottle of water at our seat when we arrived, real pillows, and no more than two seats side by side. Bean bags to rest your feet on was a great touch."
Cons: "Touch screen system on entertainment system was very sluggish and unresponsive"
Pros: "Comfort, cleanless, crew availaibility."
Pros: "Great flight and most notable was kindness and attentiveness of flight attendabts."
Cons: "Everything was well done."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional."
Cons: "Seats are unbelievably cramped. Not enough legroom or cargo room under the seats. It seems they put more seats in than the aircraft was meant to have. Made experience of 10 hour flight much more difficult."
Pros: "In general very good. Everyone was nice and polite.h"
Cons: "The plane temperature was a little too cold."
Pros: "I really like Air Newzealand!"
Pros: "Liked just about everything. Paid extra for upgraded Economy seats but it was worth it. Seats 35 A & B. Flight both ways very smooth and flight crew very accommodating. Have already recommended New Zealand Air to all my friends."
Pros: "the movie selection"
Pros: "I absolutely adored Air New Zealand. The airplane itself was a ball of fun with its purple lights. The flight crew was funny and charming, and quite attentive to people who wanted snacks and beverages. Great selection of movies."
Cons: "I hated that it costs $150 for an extra (2nd) checked in luggage. If you are flying international, typically you get 2 free checked in luggages. This caught me by surprise, and I wish it was brought to my attention before I went to the airport. The seats were okay, didn't recline as much as I would've liked. But overall I enjoyed my ANZ flight."
