Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and understanding , helping us in best manners."
Pros: "You have a good airline. It was clean and everyone was friendly all communication was good EXCEPT before I got to the airport I forgot my visa and thought all I’d have to do is call Qantas and they’d advise me."
Cons: "Every time I’d call an 800 number I’d get someone in South Africa who was sooooo unhelpful. I’m sure she had her script but for heavensake all I needed to do was to go online and get a visa. And I saw someone in San Francisco at the ticket counter get a visa and yet I was told I wouldn’t be flying that night as I had forgotten to get a visa. No help at all !! I know I wasn’t the only person that ever got a visa. I was told to call my consulate. Clearly there was a simple way to get a visa and I was so freaked out until I figured it out myself. Made it so unpleasant."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, boarding was efficient, and in-flight service was unobtrusive."
Cons: "To be honest, I really wish Qantas would include Bejewelled in their games offerings."

Cons: "Delayed!! It’s hilarious.. He didn’t arrived on time"
Pros: "Comfy flight. The staff were really helpful."
Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."
Cons: "Flight was late boarding at LAX and at Sydney had to be bused to terminal which was slow. Otherwise all was great."
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our flight were great and did their very best to take care of the customers even in poor circumstances."
Cons: "Our original flight from Sydney to SFO was cancelled due to mechanical issues after boarding over an hour late and then sitting in our seats on the tarmac for over 3 hours. The flight was rebooked for the next day, but on a much older and far less comfortable plane. The plane had no room of any kind, especially for a taller person, and there was no choice but to put your seat back if the person in front of you had. The inflight entertainment was also far less advanced. After having such an excellent flight to Australia I was highly disappointed by the flight home. Other than putting us in a free hotel for the night and paying for taxi fares there was no compensation which cost me a full day of work."

Pros: "Qantas service was certainly up to standard."

Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."
Pros: "Quick boarding."

Cons: "Seat not comfortable, and needed repair. Entertainment very limited Limited checked baggage (one piece only)"
Cons: "When I landed in LA after my trip I was sad to find that my suitcase was broken into and item bought were taken."
Pros: "Previously took 4 other Air NZ flights on this trip and loved them - great entertainment, very pleasant and helpful crew. The long flight from Fiji back to the US was partnered with Air Fiji and it was just a bit above average compared to our typical experience with Air NZ. The boarding experience was really good and much more organized than most airlines, which was nice. Plenty of bathrooms available, they came around with water frequently, which is a must on these long flghts, and every seat had their own screen for entertainment, which is very nice."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, not much leg room especially for such a long red eye. Movie and TV selection was limited compared to typical Air NZ flights. Half the crew was somewhat unpleasant and overlooked passengers trying to give them trash and even charitable contributions when they were going around collecting specifically those things. (The other half of the crew was the more typically amazing, customer oriented attitude.) Not sure if Air Fiji just over works its crew or what, but it was not as pleasant. The food was also back to typical just ok airplane food, not normal for Air NZ which has great food and lots of it. We also were not able to pick our seats for this flight, which was not ideal for comfort or location."
Pros: "I really appreciated how the crew enforced window shades down for the majority of the flight. It really helped me sleep like I was hoping to so that I can be better adjusted to the time change and reduce jet lag."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Pros: "Genuine, warm and welcoming crew. Clean and spacious cabin. Very tasty vegetarian breakfast."
Pros: "Excellent service from crew members. Genuine Fiji hospitality"
Cons: "Angled seats and limited IFE"
Pros: "Great views, fun airport w live music...seeing storm over Auckland"
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."

Pros: "Thanx for the isle seat,/gate agent who checked me in was especially great,calm n patient,courteious n happy!plane was clean and staff were warm n welcoming,,,Vinaka..."
Cons: "My two month trip began leaving LAX jun 11:where YOU had a witch hunt for carry on liggage.In 13 years,my carry on was acceptiable;On that day $120.00 extra was needed for me to travel with my carry on,,no issuies for years b4,or traveling after,B.S..psngr tkt#2607808503000,2260 ,4521, 439746 6,left a nansty taste in my mouth,claimed my bag was just a tiny bit to large.. !When crew was provideing water or other on flight products,they worked from back to front;which made it diffuacult to see the product offered comming!! Also,,this last flight crew didnt seem happy to be traveling,and lacked the GREAT BULA I am used too.. I hop things get beter,.So ta talii ,Tim"
Pros: "The entertainment onboard"
Cons: "For the last couple of times I have used Fiji airways they are horrible. So strict! Would let me bring on grey goose which I bought a duty free in Los Angeles... They made me throw it out. Then they try to find any little thing wrong if it's with your bag, or carry whatever they try to make you pay for EVERYTHING! they were about to take away my 3 liquids which was less than 3 ounces because it wasn't in a plastic bag. ALL OF THE OTHER AIRLINES I HAVE USED HAVE NEVER DONE THIS! So I had to leave security go back outside. Come back in and get a plastic bag. If your bag is even a pound over weight, regardless of the fact if you really can't pay it. They won't be nice and help you out at all like some other airlines do for example Air New Zealand, AA, I could go on. Also, more than half of the staff are so condescending and rude, they like refuse to be nice and help out a passenger. If I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO AND AS A LAST RESORT then I would use Fiji. But for right now I will NEVER USE THEM. And I will suggest to my family and friends not to use the airline!!"
Pros: "The entertainment was fine. The seats in economy were fine, more leg room than many."
Cons: "Lack of water. This was a 10+ hour flight and the they brought no water except at meal time. Most long distance flghts have water all the time. Plus you cannot take bottled water on the flight as they do another security check as you board the plane, Carry on luggage policy is very different. I went online and checked the dimensions. Measured my bag and it was exactly the right size, same as US airlines but when I arrived at the the check in, it did not fit into the bin you use to measure. I argued it was the exact dimensions but had to pay $125 to check a carry on bag. Do not believe the dimensions on the website."
Pros: "Friendly crew, decent food, plenty of movies, power points at every seat."
Cons: "Boarding is chaos. They let everyone crowd the boarding area so you have to fight threw all the people who are hoping their row will be called soon. The announcement is hard to hear because everyone is shouting to ask what's happening."
