Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"

Pros: "Easy flight."

Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was very cold so the cabin could have been warmer"

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

Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"

Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The sky couch is always very nice."
Cons: "We told the crew the water tasted funny, like dirt, they said it was fine, just had lemon in it. Pretty sure we know the difference between lemon and dirt taste."

Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."

Pros: "I had to us the wheel chair And they were all GREAT I was by my self"
Cons: "Right now I can't think of any thing"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."

Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"

Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."

Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"

Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"

Pros: "Punctuality. Confortable plane."

Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"

Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"

Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"

Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"

Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"

Cons: "Unlike other international flights, Air New Zealand only allows 1 check in luggage per person instead of 2. Most other international airlines allow 2 check in luggage. But otherwise it was good and the service was ok, not as much food selection as other airlines but the crew are very nice and the airline is very clean."

Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."

Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"

Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."

Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."

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!"

Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."

Pros: "Everything ❤❤❤"

Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."

Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."

Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."

Pros: "Really quite comfortable seat and space wise Good to see entertainment still in the back seat"

Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "Everything about this flight was superb. The staff was very nice, the seating area was spacious and relaxing and the lights inside were super fun! Everything ran on time and the food was actually quite good."
Cons: "My dead would not recline, but I would not find any fault with my flight even with that."

Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."

Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"

Pros: "It was s safe flight."
Cons: "I didn't feel valued and appreciated. Poor options for complementary food service."

Pros: "No complaints at all"

Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."

Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."

Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."

Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."

Pros: "Nice cabin crew, nice boarding, ontime departure, clean aircraft."
Cons: "Check-in agent at bag drop counter was a sour puss."

Pros: "Service was great. Best food hubby and I ever had on a flight, international or domestic!"
Cons: "No issues!"

Cons: "tv entertainment,i wish i had realised that there was no TV for the children. ."

Pros: "Love the cheap fares and easy check in"
Cons: "So cramped! No leg room"

Pros: "Adequate"
Cons: "In this day and age, i expect to have free entertainment even with a short hall"

Pros: "Comfotable flight, Good landing."
Cons: "Though one of the stewardess' was professional she was a little impersonal. That statement is a little harsh as she was very young. I am sure as she gains experience she will become great at what she does. Maybe a big smile would help when she addresses passages."

Pros: "Older plane with uncomfortable seat"
Cons: "The seat on the plane was old and uncomfortable"

Cons: "It was 1 hr delayed then when boarded there was some technical fault and we were left boarded with door open for about an hour. There was no offer of water or any drink. Seats I didn’t find comfortable. The cabin had significant rattle. Overall a very poor experience in today’s day and age."

Pros: "Nothing actually"
Cons: "Late departure, uncomfortable seats, rude staff"

Pros: "On time if not ahead of time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Thank you so much for returning my laptop to me. I left it on board seat 4c. Made my day , comfy fast flight"

Pros: "New and clean aircraft Great staff/crew"

Pros: "That l got sms messages regarding my flight details and where to collect my luggage!! Awesome"

Pros: "Good smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed getting away"

Cons: "I have put past a lot of things that jetstar airlines have done in the past, including the 140$ that I had to pay to change and pay to rebook or pay to cancel and there were no given supports with credits, so I ended up abandoning the flight altogether losing the money. I flew jetstar from Sydney to Sunshine Coast with my backpack a personal bag and a tote bag. I had previously paid 20$ for checked luggage. Making my total for the flight 80$ no one asked to weigh my bags or questioned them. Making the 20$ extra just disappear? . They did make me throw out my beverage upon entered the aircraft that I just purchased, I would assume because it’s a ‘safety issue’ even though the airline does not give complimentary anything so I’m assuming it’s mostly competition of sales.In Gold Coast I checked my bags through security got to the gate and they had a trolly weighing bags. They asked me if I was traveling with someone else which I replied with a no. They then weighed my backpack saying it was 7kgs and I had to come with them to the front. So my backpack personal item and tote bag was too much all of a sudden. I offered to give up the tote bag which then turned the situation into that all of my bags were over weight and it was going to charge me 60$ for my 7kg backpack. I said 60$ was expensive and I paid 20$ last time for my checked bags on the way here that I hadn’t used and he said too bad. Meanwhile the majority of people boarding past me had had rolling luggage and an additional bag or a personal item and when I said something to the employee he told me I’m wrong and they were all weighed and it’s 60$ for my belongings to be checked and put under the plane? Because 60$ somehow made the weight of the flight more light? Horrible customer service. I didn’t get I’m sorry any compassion I got what are you paying with? I paid 60$ or miss my flight. 60$ could have given me one more flight. Also to mention the flight was not even completely full so what did that 60$ accomplish? Awful awful awful . So in the future I suppose I’m just going to donate 20$ regardless if I have checked luggage or not because paying for everything is the only consistent thing on jetstar. On the positive side they let me jump the line after I paid 60$ for my “overweight luggage” and I got to my assigned seat more quickly."

Pros: "It took off and landed"
Cons: "Rude Jetstar staff at Coolingatta found we had 4 items weighing 15.5 kg instead of 14 and wanted to charge us $60 to load a bag on plane. Last Jetstar flight for me"

Pros: "Service on the plane and in the terminal was good"
Cons: "Walking on the runway to the plane was uncomfortable with wind rai and noise"

Cons: "No in-flight entertainment facilities or capabilities"

Pros: "Overall experience very good"
Cons: "All goid"

Pros: "Easy check in, bag drop and courteous staff"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food or water"

Cons: "My father passed away this morning, and I couldn’t call anyone to change my flight. The number didn’t work. So I had to purchase 2 new tkts for the 11.30 flight home."

Pros: "Economic overall. Check in staff very helpful in resolving baggage issue ( see below). As long as you undertstand your ticket/ baggage cost, you'll be fine."
Cons: "Tried to pay in advance for baggage. Online system wouldn't accept our credit card (needed a signature) so entire booking put on hold. A little stressful, but airport staff sorted it out with no added cost."

Pros: "Newer plane, arrived on time."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything. Even though it’s an eight hour flight there is no food, drink or entertainment included. They do have screens at the back of each seat but it’s $10 to watch a limited selection. The food and drink are expensive. It gets cold in the plane but you guessed it if you ask for a blanket you have to buy a $20 “comfort pack”. So be prepared!"

Pros: "What did I like... er..... I got home !"
Cons: "Where to begin: 1. The staff. the rudest flight crew i have ever come across in my professional career 2. The flight, well, as always, the flight was delayed for no reason, no explanations, no apologies, nothing 3. Comfort.... the Airbus A321 is a good airframe, other airlines engage seat manufactures with comfort in mind... nope.. not jetstar 4. Food. What food??? Was there any food?? nope.. there was a bag of nuts and some chips... 5. Entertainment. Well, I had fun listening to the cabin crew moan about passengers, so that was entertaining.. NEVER AGAIN"

Cons: "Child behind sitting on floor banging seat and loud devices being used with no ear phones so couldn’t rest"

Cons: "How close the seats are."

Pros: "never fly with Jetstar again ripped off with return baggage cost girl at reception seemed to get pleasure at taking 60 dollars from me for another hidden cost"

Pros: "It was a quick flight, managed to leave 10min earlier than scheduled. Pretty smooth."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, felt very straight and no real headrest; even though it was a new plane. Quite a lot of families with young children flying, it was the last domestic flight out so expected it to be less children. It was a bit noisy at times."

Pros: "The price of food etc. The norm!"

Pros: "That the flight was on time and the baggage arrived quickly."
Cons: "Bag check was difficult. I neglected to purchase my one bag’s space in the hold either because I forgot or neglected this task. Nevertheless, when I tried to purchase the checked bag, I was misdirected twice and separate scales were 7kilos apart! Thus my “budget airfare” from Sydney to Coolangatta was $94, my checked bag in the other direction cost $124! This was the only hiccup, but the bag check process was unnecessarily expensive, unwieldy, and confusing."

Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"

Pros: "First time flyer very good"

Pros: "Plane delayed missed connection had to spend night in Melbourne"

Pros: "All very straightforward from boarding to landing. Pleasant and helpful crew. As comfortable as could be for a small plane."
Cons: "No entertainment available - although flight was only an hour so not really a big deal"

Pros: "Ticket price seemed reasonable, until it was time to check in"
Cons: "Airline wanted to charge $145 for one 20 kilo check-in bag Wanted to also push me to a later flight Would not allow anything over 7 kilos carry on, and were weighing items at the gate. This put several thousand dollars of camera gear for me at risk to baggage handlers with no option to pay more for weight. The airline of course accepts no responsibility if you do have to check fragile gear due to their carry on restrictions. Seat space was hands down the smallest I've ever seen. Overheard at least three other passengers say the same Overall, experience couldn't be worse. Will not fly again."

Pros: "My seat 12F...."

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: "Not much"
Cons: "NEW check in procedure with lack of instruction Seat spacing and lack of room in cattle class, first seat I have ever had that it's so called upright position actually bent you uncomfortably forward during take off and landing and I used to work in the industry"

Pros: "Helpful and friendly staff on board. Easy check in and boarding. Slight departure delay but arrived on time."
Cons: "Food options aren't great or cheap, but it's a budget airline so what do you really expect? Same goes for baggage. 7kg carry-on isn't a lot but prepare for it properly and you'll have no problems - you can't complain when you're charged for being a few kilos over."

Cons: "The staff were quite rude I asked for 3 hours for my screen to be fixed so I could sleep. A hostess stepped on my foot an swore and did not apologise or acknowledge anything. The seats were cramped. I will not be flying with Jetstar on an international flight again or local if I can avoid it."

Cons: "Beer was warm. At that price for average beer it would be nice to have it cold!"

Pros: "No issues with boarding"
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Have flown with jet star and I always have a great flight and I really enjoy how amazing the flight crew always are. Will continue to choose Jetstar for my domestic flights."

Pros: "Customer service and ticket counter staff pleasant--that's it. Everything else disappointing -- will not fly them again -- Air New Zealand or Quantas only; don't know about United Emirates; paid $100 for baggage greater than 7K on international travel -- only $50 for domestic travel -- beware!! Must get luggage allowance on line at least 4 hours in advance of departure. Seats are tighter than any U.S. carrier including Spirit and Frontier. Kayak should somehow warn passengers unfamiliar with Jetstar airlines policy!!!"

Pros: "Great electronic boarding procedures, mobile app and website. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable agents at airports and on-board. Will definitely fly JetStar in the future and highly recommend this airline!"
