Pros: "Entertainment options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."
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: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."
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: "N / A"
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."
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "For the $s paid for this flight the crew could be a little bit friendlier and having a smile on their face."
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"
Cons: "I was not given a chance to make a seat assignment on the Alaska legs between Seattle and LA and ended up being stuck in a middle seat going both ways. There,was no option during booking to make a,seat selection. This was also true for the LA to Auckland outbound leg. This is an area needing improvenent."
Pros: "My first long flight. Although long flights can be difficult, my experience was great. The staff was nice and friendly. The flight was enjoyable I liked the food and drink service. Good selection of music, movies, as well as other information provided, such as information about place to be visited. I was traveling with two friends, we did not sit together, but we were able to message each other via the texting service on the screen, that was awesome!"
Cons: "N/A"
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: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."
Pros: "Two toilets in Premium Economy, comfortable seat with blanket, headphones, and large pillow"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "All the attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The hand cream and lip balm were excessively scented. I could tell when anyone in the cabin used it. The food was a little too fussy for my taste with trying to put 12 ingredients in one chicken dish."
Pros: "The crew, food, entertainment made the flight comfortable"
Cons: "I felt I was gouged on my 2nd bag fee with an outrageous cost of $200.00 aud or $150.00US. It only weighed 20lbs. as well."
Pros: "Great staff and crew. Some of the best!"
Cons: "No Wi-fi? WTF? It's 2017, almost 2018! How is it that an international airline does not have Wi-fi? Extremely disappointed, as I didn't find out until I boarded the flight. Get Wi-fi ASAP."
Pros: "everything, crew best. Bit chilly and the FA put a blanket over my name without me even asking! Yummy food, I was late to boarding but easy to get on. Can't wait until they get Wifi!"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "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."
Cons: "Delayed by 45 minutes"
Pros: "We upgraded to premium economy, and Tony was very attentive and took great care of us!"
Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"
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: "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."
Pros: "Enjoyed gluten free meal enjoyed inflight entertainment"
Cons: "a little squashed in seating"
Pros: "Plenty of movies. Tight legroom and harder to get into seats with pillows, headsets and blankets on seats and the plastic bags make them slip everywhere.. Maybe pass them out after everyone had boarded."
Cons: "See above. Plus it was a rough turbulent flight."
Pros: "Tons of free movies."
Cons: "As a vegan I didnt think the food was great. But they did have food for me to eat so that was nice."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No wifi. Limited entertainment. Seats not comfortable. Food was basic."
Pros: "Check in process was very good"
Cons: "Staff is not necessarily as attentive to individual needs as they could be. Many oversights in service. Also, the sound on my video speakers was distorted (loud screeching) that ruled out any chance to watch any movies on this long flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Air New Zealand may be one of the best airlines I've ever flown. Fantastic service and great flight!"
Pros: "Comfortable Premium Economy seating is well worth the cost for such a long flight. Food was excellent and crew was very attentive. Entertainment system was very limited and clunky to use. The safety briefing is the most entertaining in the industry. Would readily choose New Zealand Air again."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats were extremely narrow. The stewards were un-attending The LA airport area was the pits, there are no one to help with your bags. I had my husband in a wheelchair and there was no one to help me with our bags! The security at LAX was joking and laughing amongst themselves and did not even look at us when they let us back into LA. We landed way far away from the building and I had to take my husband in a wheel chair and my hand luggage into a buss before we got into a building and we were the last ones to arrive, Vicky"
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!"
Cons: "Nothing:)"
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: "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: "Lots of selections"
Cons: "Adult movies with many sexual scenes need to be avoided in the aircrafts! Children behind or sitting the next roll also watched it! Very concerned if I should book your airline with my 2 teenagers in the future..."
