Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and responsive to all requests."
Pros: "Great crew and counter staffing. Only took about 10 minutes to get my ticket and half of that was due to some snag with the NZ visa details."
Pros: "very comfortable reclining seats for sleeping. It was a lot of work for the attendants setting up each bed and then taking it apart. But for me, it was much more comfortable than the flight from SFO to ACK."
Cons: "Movies did not change from November to December. I watched 3 on the way to NZ in Nov and they were still the only 3 to interest me on the return flight. Disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was excellent; responsive, cheery. The safety video was unique enough to have passengers pay attention (seldom seen onother airlines). We were impressed and will fly "Air All Blacks" again soon."
Cons: "Online checkin presented problems, as did the kiosk checkin. Breakfast could have been served a little earlier -- I realize they wanted to give passengers sleep time and turbulence may have delayed service somewhat, too. Otherwise good."
Pros: "Food was delicious and warm. Water was provided throughout the flight. Entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "There were large black box type items underneath certain seats which impacted personal item stowage and leg room."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful again. This time I had an aisle seat in the center section and it was much more comfortable. The food was vegetarian and quite good."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Pinot noir"
Cons: "No temp control, a little stuffy"
Cons: "They don't greet me only the people in front and behind me. I didn't receive a meal she skipped me i don't know if you have to pay or not but the person on the left of me got one and the person the right got one"
Pros: "I would encourage no one ever book with New Zealand Air again."
Cons: "The rude and self righteous gate agent with horrific breath threatened to call security if I did not leave the boarding line and sit and wait until the flight left."
Cons: "5 hours late. Had to go to work on 2 hours sleep"
Pros: "After the schedule for my Houston flight was delayed by 3 1/2 hours, customer service was able to put me on a flight thru LAX which got me back to my original ORD arrival time and avoided an overnight stay before continuing on home. The meal vouchers offered were an unexpected bonus. Thanks."
Cons: "Foot space in front of seat was limited."
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The service was excellent. The food was wonderful and the cabin very comfortable."
Pros: "Service, food, chairs, entertainment"
Cons: "3 hour delay created major issues for an international flight."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and friendly Plane was clean Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Vegan breakfast was a bit odd (more of a dinner than a breakfast). Temperature was a bit on the cold side (I had a sweater, vest, jacket, and the blanket and was still cold)."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Allowed us to change seats within our section for more comfort. Good food. Loves the USB outlet at our seats."
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Awesome in flight entertainment! Very corteous and polite crew!"
Cons: "Im midsized asian, i the seats are too small"
Pros: "Cool temps in plane"
Pros: "I had always had a pleasant time with this airline but this 2nd longer flight wasn't it's best! I still have good opinions about this airline and plan on using it in the future."
Cons: "My neighbor in a 4 seat section kept elbowing me. Seats seemed to be too close to each other and for people who aren't average weight it is hard for them to stay within their given space. Eating meals was difficult because some people use their elbows all over the place."
Cons: "Very small seat"
Cons: "Got delayed in Queenstown and left the next day, First to Wellington, Auckland, Los Angeles and finally OKC"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. There were plenty of movies to choose from--and I do mean a massive selection. Also, the food was better than I usually expect from airplane food. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I guess this goes for all economy class seats, but there's no room to move. I was lucky to have an empty middle seat (which merits the "good" rating over the "okay"), but even with that, maneuvering was difficult (trying to get stuff from the carry on stored beneath the seat, etc.). Things got worse when the person in front of me decided to put his chair back all the way into my face."
Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
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: "It was what I expected"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Pros: "Air New Zealand staff are very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are the most uncomfortable and tight I have ever experienced on an international flight, and we were in exit row seats. For a 15 hour flight, it was miserable."
Pros: "They put me on a flight to Auckland and then a flight to Wellington"
Cons: "Well I didn't even get on this flight because the plane haven't even left wellington when it was supposed to have been boarding in Sydney had to get two different flights"
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "For how much a ticket cost, they really take advantage of you. 7.5 kilo max carry on... what a joke. My bag ways that without anything packed. It's time for some competition to right their ship."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful. One of our travelers got sick on the plane and, unfortunately, made a mess in one of the toilets. Without batting an eye, the crew took on the thankless task of cleanup. We noticed that the bulkheads had fixtures embedded in them to allow a small basinet to be attached to the bulkhead. One couple used it for their infant and it seemed to be a lifesaver. I don't know of any other airline that offers this."
Cons: "Our seats were more narrow than normal. Almost to the point of discomfort. We did fly on Air New Zealand from Auckland to Christchurch and the seats on that flight were what I would consider a "normal" width. Meals were served in a timely way but the food was just okay - nothing outstanding. But, we did fly coach/economy."
Pros: "Spring for the extra money and go for the Premium Economy seats! Great food, free wine."
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options--movies and TV shows."
Pros: "Large screen with good choice of movies etc"
Cons: "As they have 3-4-3 seating on their 777 (BA and Delta have 3-3-3) the seats are very narrow to make room for the extra seat in school row"
Pros: "For such a long flight the food is not good! The only snacks are a tiny tiny bag of corn chips or a cookie. The attendants were average. The comfort of coach was bad. Other airlines will give you great snacks, tooth brush, night mask, etc but not Air New Zealand they are almost like a budget airline. Not sure how they are rated the best airline."
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "The pillow I was given smelled terrible, it seems they may change only the pillow case, but re-use pillows. They really should provide fresh pillows."
Pros: "I upgraded seat for the return flight home. The service was excellent, food - high quality, and cabin personnel knowledgeable/friendly. Overall the inside of the plane was clean and pleasing to the eye.. US Airlines should take some lessons from Air New Zealand"
Cons: "could not check in online. Traveling with my daughter and we were unable to lock in seats together. Gate agents were able to do this but not proof to arrival at assigned gate."
Pros: "Friendly crew, always."
Cons: "Whatever was served for hot breakfast on my flight (I think it was supposed to be scrambled eggs and baked beans) was absolutely horrible. Everyone in my section of the plane took one bite and passed it back to the stewards."
Pros: "Air New Zealand has some of the friendliest cabin crews around. Their food is above average and they have a delicious array of wines served free with meals. My flight was interrupted by a medical emergency. We had to backtrack to the nearest airport, which added several hours to the flight. This meant a very long day for both passengers and crew. The crew remained cheerful and helpful throughout, in spite of cranky passengers."
Pros: "Nothing. Nothing at all"
Cons: "They were rude to us economy passengers. Apparently unless you pay ridiculous money for first class you get treated like garbage. Even though my ticket said I had one free bag to check the rip off artists at United charged me 150 for one bag under the size and weight limit."
Cons: "Traveled as a family of 6 but our special meal requests--confirmed by phone prior to outbound journey--were not available, making the long journey very difficult. They crew tried to help and said they would follow up."
Pros: "Great entertainment system with lots of selections. Electrical outlets and USB port also great amenities"
Cons: "I am a small person and found the legroom to be inadequate. I paid $50 to upgrade the seats to economy plus to give us a bit more space but it wasn't any better. For a long, overseas flight, more space is needed. I had more legroom on my domestic flight with United. Also, the airline attendants for Air NZ were unpleasant and downright grumpy at times. It made a long, uncomfortable flight seem a whole lot longer."
Cons: "how long the flight was"
Pros: "What a nice surprise! Very friendly in-flight agents. They even topped off my water bottle :) GREAT movies and TV options. Actually edible food... Can't beat this affordable comfort!"
Cons: "As with most planes, vey limited overhead space compared to # of passengers. Had to check carry-on bags both to and from NZ. Not so bad though since it was free!"
Pros: "Seats were good. Lots of movies to watch. Good headphones. Food was not bad. They had chocolate ice cream for desert! Crew was nice. I would fly again."
Cons: "Free Wi-fi would be cool."
Cons: "When checking in for my flights at the Kiosk I inadvertently skipped over the seat select options. Unfortunately once this is done you can't go back. I called Air NZ to see if I could get an ile seat but as I had already checked in they could not do anything to change the seat location."
Pros: "Crew was great, good selection of movies"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, but not as attentive as the men we had from LA to Auckland. This exit row seat was near 5 bathrooms so not as good a seat as LA to Auckland."
