Very helpful ground and flight staff. Leg room very good too. Well done!!
Plane was late and caused me to miss my return ferry crossing with my vehicle I was bringing to timaru
Pros: "The employees of Air New Zealand always make our trips excellent."
Cons: "I always have trouble hearing the announcements in the waiting areas at the airports. Why can't they (airports) fix that."
Cons: "Please have the option to order Kosher meal!! The 1st air company that I use, that don’t offer this basic service!! Ridiculous!!"
Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"
Pros: "Aircraft was a new A320. Superb. Loads of legroom and extra width . Great flight."
Pros: "Only a 25 minute flight"
Cons: "I was turned away at the gate and was unable to board the plane. It was an awful experience!"
Pros: "The crew on air New Zealand was absolutely amazing. Amazing customer service, makes me always want to fly with air New Zealand."
Cons: "I had no heads up that New Zealand required an app downloaded and a government check before you can travel to New Zealand. Because of this, I had to download the app at the airport, and because it can take up to 72 hours for the NZ gov to approve your app, I almost missed my flight. Would have appreciated 72 hours notice of this new rule."
Pros: "Good quick flight"
Cons: "It was the shortest flight of my itinerary. My last flight home. We sat on the plane for nearly 45 minutes before take off and it was late getting home. Totally ridiculous. Every flight in and out of Eugene is ridiculous like that"
Pros: "Crew were always friendly and just looks happy to do their job. Seat were comfortable enough for what I paid for"
Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
Pros: "Wonderful crew, excellent food, very comfortable!"
Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"
Pros: "Generally Excellent."
Cons: "After years of traveling with a Personal Assitive device (many times on ANZ), the pilot refused to carry the device. It is still stuck in Sydney, although they say they will deliver to our home."
Pros: "flight crew are good, other general categories are average."
Cons: "Boarding in both Sydney-Auckland & Auckland-Vancouver are disorganized. No clear indication of when & where to line up. No flight delay message to explain when boarding time was long overdue. In particular, for the Auckland - Vancouver flight, one ground staff was telling economy passengers (in rather rude express) they were in the wrong line except there was never announcement. Overall, disappointed."
Pros: "The option to gate check strollers for easy access with a toddler"
Cons: "The stroller wasn't delivered to the gate by Air New Zealand"
Pros: "The option to gate check strollers for easy access with a toddler"
Cons: "The stroller wasn't delivered to the gate by Air New Zealand"
Cons: "Please check your visa requirements is your flight is just a stopover in NZ to AUS (or elsewhere) as I could not return due to unfair transit visa issues in NZ. Have to book another one way flight and pay. completely nuts. I was not warned anywhere till I reached the airport."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."
Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."
Pros: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."
Pros: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"
Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."
Cons: "Bathroom did not work, food was not so tasty"
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."
Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "The fact that every possible thing was tajen 8nto account to connect us from our late arrival intetnational flight. Great team"
Pros: "Overall service, food quality vs US airlines, selection and ease of use of entertainment system."
Cons: "I purchased a $50 select economy upgrade which should have included priority boarding but it did not. That’s on the airline though, not Kayak. The airline also did not reply to an enquirer submitted weeks before the flight. Seat leg space was restricted more than average due to large black blocks in addition to the metal seat frames. Maybe that’s due to the enhanced entertainment and power outlets so can’t say it’s a complete negative."
Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."
Pros: "We flew Air Canada’s Economy Plus from Vancouver to Sydney and Air New Zealand’s Economy Plus from Auckland back to Vancouver. NZ’s Economy Plus product is far and above AC’s. Everything from the welcome, to the meal, to the level of service is great. I really felt that NZ treated the Econ Plus cabin as distinct from Economy (including having 2 dedicated washrooms), whereas on AC it felt like we were merely Economy with better seats. I compare NZ and AC because we were so genuinely impressed with what we purchased. We would definitely book NZ Econ Plus again, and the January seat sale is a great time to do so!"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. NZ gets this product right."
Pros: "Appearance of plane"
Cons: "Attitude of attendant. Worst landing of 4 flights going from USA to auckland"
Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."
Cons: "We had to take a connecting flight from Paris and British Airlines were very inconsistent with their hand carry policy which gave me so much stress."
Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."
Cons: "Captain's sense of humor."
Pros: "So many complimentary items such as food, drinks, and even alcohol. The most professional crew I've ever seen."
Pros: "Felt safe through bumps. Awesome FA's love the lollys!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "We flew premium economy. The staff was wonderful great first experience! I really wish the other three crews could have kept this momentum going as my other flights with ANZ were less than thrilling! The flight attendant staff was phenomenal on my iah to akl leg. My crew on the akl to iah leg. Brandon gave the initial intro and seemed to follow the original crews standards. Unfortunately, we had an older flight attendant who seemed less than thrilled to be with us this flight."
Cons: "I wish I could give a true rating of ANZ as their crews apparently don't follow any protocol for providing the same exceptional service received on my maiden flight with them."
Pros: "Not a problem, anywhere. For a long day, that is appreciated."
Pros: "Watching movies made flt not being go by faster"
Cons: "Not being able to just order a beer....yes, I did on screen but still was not able to buy cuz said service was closed. This after flt attendant told me to use screen to order n pay. She eventually just gave it to me after trying to do it herself unsuccessfully."
Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"
Cons: "Only issue was demand of passenger behind me that I not recline my seat back. I complied and chose not to bring it to crew's attention but was unable to travel comfortably for last leg of our 20+ hour trip."
Pros: "Nothing in particular--it was a short flight. I did appreciate that the crew went ahead and turned on the entertainment system even though it was a short transit time (we were on a plane meant for trans-Pacific travel--only reason it was available in the first place)."
Cons: "No complaints here."
Pros: "Boarding through two doors made the process faster."
Cons: "A better explanation of the lunch choices would be helpful"
Pros: "Super smooth flight, flight attendants were incredibly friendly and hospitable"
Pros: "Crew was fine, seating was ok. Appreciated food and snacks, boarding - and disembarking- was handled super well."
Cons: "How do you enforce 'quiet time' when there are chatty children in the row in front and in back of you? Was constant distraction."
Cons: "Always a pleasure to fly with qantas"
Pros: "Crew very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Only had overhead video displays, not individual ones in the back of the seat, so no choice of entertainment. No matter, I read a book!"
Pros: "Not much to like other than access to Cathay pacific lounge at SFO Over booked about 50 seats fights in the aisles security on board blamed on a computer glitch delayed over 2 1/2 hours Business class old uncomfortable seats. After flying Singapore business last week I was appalled at what quantas had for the same price I’m dreading my flight back home on quantas I won’t fly them again"
Cons: "on line check in more difficult than others"
Pros: "Staff was wonderful. Food and cleanliness was good. Pilots communication was accurate and helpful."
Cons: "We were travelling with an infant. Although we had requested for crib/bassinet we didn’t get one. To add to the anxiety, we noticed that none of the bassinet seats were allocated to parents with infants. There were at least 3 families with infants and lots of children due to school holidays. But we all had to make do with our cramped seats. Maybe Qantas can plan this better. It isn’t so difficult as they usually know how many infants are travelling, in advance."
Pros: "Was traveling with my 1yr old and my in-laws. Crew could not have made it a more comfortable journey."
Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."
Pros: "A380 fleet was the smoothest flight i've ever experienced of all airlines i've been to"
Cons: "one female crew does not smile,all grumpy"
Pros: "Watched movies to pass the time. Trip uneventful but 2 hours late"
Cons: "The announcements by cabin crew on board were hard to understand as English not first language"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Terrible meals. Ran out if nany items. Only one refreshment s tree and in the back of the plane."
Cons: "I paid to select aisle seating but upon board found out my seating was the middle seat."
Pros: "New business layout is more comfortable comfortable and private."
Pros: "The flight crew was great, very comfortable plane ride"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late, but the pilot kept us in the loop with all the information"
Pros: "Great service, easy flight."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"
Pros: "Really nothing."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and people were standing in line for ages before they started to let passengers board. Once boarded, flight was delayed over an hour so we just sat there on the plane. We were sitting in the last row where extremely cold air was just blowing directly at us the entire flight! We asked a few members of the crew including the manager and were told that that's what happens when you're close to the door. It was the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE flight of my life!!! I will never fly Qantas again. They were a complete nightmare and definitely the low point of our wonderful vacation."
Cons: "Over all service was poor. TVs weren't working either."
Pros: "More spacious and very friendly service."
Cons: "The airplane did not have any USB or power outlets"
Pros: "One of the representatives was genuinely helpful. She made a better effort than others to help me find another flight replacement."
Cons: "Most representative/consultants were not helpful. I was given inconsistent information by different representatives."
Pros: "Great entertainment and amazing crew as always"
Cons: "Food was not the quality I expected on Qantas for such a long flight."
Pros: "Attentive staff with great food. Only issue is seats in economy are a bit cramped."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped in economy."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delays are too often"
Cons: "Took 2.5 hours to get the first refreshments. While there was some turbulence, when they finally did get the carts rolling there were clearly time management and inventory issues. They recovered and the rest of the trip went smoothly, but not a good way to start a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and fairly attentive in business class. I had access to the First Class lounge in Sydney and it is wonderful. Even has a spa, though don't expect first class spa treatment. Uh, plane was clean and food was ok, but getting a cocktail was difficult."
Cons: "Business class seats are uncomfortable and there is nowhere to store and easily access something as simple as a book. There is a storage compartment on the seat in front of you, which you cannot reach without getting out of your seat.. While the seats do go flat, it's not something you can sleep on your side for long. Ended up reclined and sleeping on my back, which is not ideal. accessing my reservation was impossible and had to call Australia to get a seat assignment, which was reassigned by the time we checked in anyway. I care where I sit and book early to have choices. I hate to say it but I was not impressed."
Pros: "On time. Smooth ride. Shorter than expected. Great service."
Cons: "Headset broken on entertainment system. Ancient hardware. Food. Meh."
Pros: "The entertainment had a great selection"
Cons: "I would have liked another round of drinks. Also people were still walking around and to the toilet when the fasten seat belt sign was on..."
Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."
Pros: "The Wide Body 747, the friendliness of the Crew. The Food and Entertainment was Excellent Embarking and Disembarking was Fast and Orderly"
Cons: "Turbulence along the Route"
Cons: "Did not have any meal for the 2h45m flight"
Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"
Pros: "Loved the hot chocolate and chocolate."
Cons: "No choices available for dinner and other snacks not very good."
Pros: "As I stated previously, I am blind and found the special assistance Qantas offers invaluable. Every crew member I interacted with was polite, thoughtful, warm, attentive, and extremely helpful."
Pros: "Crew are professional and food is good quality!"
Cons: "The cabin is way too old and out of date, especially considering alternative business class options. Time for an update Wantas before it hits your bottom line (if it hasn't already)."
Pros: "The ES on my failed three hrs into a 13 hr flight. No music no movies just a black screen. Staff unable to help. The cold salad option included raw potatoes, inedible raw broccoli stocks & green beans. Tough grisly ham bits. More like rubbish bin material than food."
Cons: "Cramped seating, no ES, poor quality food options"
Pros: "So much leg room and leaning back was great!"
Cons: "Asked the attendant for tissue more than twice and she never brought it over to me."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Food was more wordt than in the past"
Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"
Pros: "Qantas was half the price of what I had paid for last year on United. Overall the price was great for I had paid for. The staffs were friendly. They let the passengers move around because there were plenty of seats."
Cons: "I didn't like how they didn't give us notification of how far out we were to landing. I end up going to the restroom a few outs. The flight attendant kept knocking on the door. Obviously, I cannot stop what I am doing to go out."
Pros: "On time and efficient."
Cons: "No GF food choices offered - always try asking for a bit of fruit if what's on offer doesn't suit."
Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"
Cons: "Food and cramped seats"
Cons: "Theee was not enough leg room. Apart from that the flight was excellent."
Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."
Pros: "On time flight, friendly crew, confortable seats!"
Cons: "The foot served could have been a little more appetizing..."
Other passengers continue to be the hardest part of flying now.
Cons: "Nothing significant"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "No hot water available so no coffee or tea. CRJ on a "western commuter" route is highly unusual."
Cons: "Garbage in see pocket and broken recline on seat 36k"
Pros: "entertainments - many choices"
Cons: "few cabin attandants were not easily likabke..."
Cons: "My baggage did not make the flight. It took 3 days to return it to me"
Pros: "The flight was on time and there was adequate foot room"
Cons: "No free snacks- biscuits or pretzels?"
Pros: "Air Canada Rouge is last airline choice I would make"
Cons: "direct flight"
Cons: "Gluten free food was mediocre. Worst on any airline. Crew was not attentive and anybrequest felt like an imposition."
Pros: "The leg room in basic economy was great -- especially compared to other airlines. In seat entertainment was free."
Cons: "Entertainment movie/TV programming was limited (not live television)."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Seats little bit cramped in economy"
Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Dallas due to crew members arrived late."
Pros: "I was not on this flight I flew raleigh to Toronto to Montreal to geneVa but I bet it was a great flight!"
Pros: "Great crew and was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was expensive"
Pros: "We made it to Vancouver"
Cons: "Aircraft was late. At least two gate changes in LA. Flight crew did not take away trash, just told us to stick in seat pockets. Entertainment system was down much of flight."
Pros: "The flight was half empty so was able to have a role to myself"
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge should be renamed Air Canada Rude. Employees are very un-friendly; Seat design on the plane is the most uncomfortable of any airline out there. Very close to each other and very little padding on cushion of seat. Dirty plane; don’t think they serviced it between flights, garbage in each seat pouch. Very cold on flight, crew did not regulate the climate control. Too many unnecessary announcements both in English then French. Each announcement seemed like it lasted about 10 minutes which no one listen. So much for trying to watch a movie that pauses every time the crew feels the needs to talk. Sat at gate for 30 minutes pass departure time without any explanation until right before we departed (waiting on passengers from late arriving flights). At lease they could have told us. Anyhow this is not the Air Canada of old. Air Canada Rouge shows no signs that they care about the comfort of their passengers."
Pros: "Flight from STL to YYZ was unremarkable, which isn't a bad thing when it comes to air transportation. Bit of a delay leaving, waiting for de-icing trucks to show up and do their work, but I'm not sure that's Air Canada's fault."
Pros: "I had a wonderful service. The airline changed flight for me when my scheduled flight delayed. So I could arrive in Vancouver on time. Thanks."
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "No food!!"
Cons: "Too hot and cramped"
Pros: "I don't have much that I liked besides the fact that it got me from Venice to Montreal."
Cons: "The service from the attendants is probably the worst that I've ever had. I had to ring someone and remind someone twice that I received the wrong customs form. Finally I had to walk back to the end of the plane where I saw four stedeardesses giggling over someone's phone. I missed one of the meals because I was dozing off and when I requested some food I was told that there was none left. The entertainment is subpar. You need a mobile or device with he app already installed. And even so the movies and shows are outdated and not very entertaining at all. On top of that, both legs of my flight my outlet was not working and not charging my device. Air Canada rouge- never again!"
Pros: "Good service, nice seat"
Cons: "TV was frozen, meaning nothing to do for 5 hours, no alternate option. flight was full, no room for overhead baggage. Spent entirely too much money for these conditions."
Pros: "entertainment choices"
Cons: "boarding process crew not helpful in baggage storage"
Pros: "Everthing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing specific"
Pros: "Media and staff"
Cons: "No organization for filling planes. Worse than Rome."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Economy seating is no longer designed to fit any passenger who is even slightly above average height."
Pros: "In flight entertainment. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Slight delay but related to the weather and not to the airline."
Pros: "Easy flight , no late"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The fact that you will have to travel almost 10 hours with absolutely no entertainment tv music etc. Not even a video on an era when Airlines should offer this as a standard. That was bad. Really bad"
Pros: "Prompt and friendly service, comfortable and clean."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very polite. One of them spilled one of the dinners right next to me and hardly cleaned it up. I waited for her to come back to clean it but a few hours later, I just cleaned it myself (even though she spilled all of it)."
Cons: "I was supposed to be home on a Sunday. That I didn't arrive until the follow Tuesday should tell you something. My adventure included: 2 cancelled flights, one drastically oversold flight, being given a hotel room without a working toilet, hours spent waiting at the airport for information from gate agents who never showed up, and being curtly told that, as a passenger who didn't arrive on a connecting flight, on my second night I would not be given a hotel room, but instead a mat to sleep on in the airport. I did finally get a hotel room—this time with a working toilet"
Cons: "my luggage and my baby's car seat was delayed. I arrived at 10 pm and my luggage and baby's car seat was missing. I was told they will deliverer it to me the next day, but I have not received my stuff now its been two days"
Pros: "We got to our destination safely and on time."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Seriously? No TVs for an international flight?? They should at least tell you that in advance so you can download movies and bring your chargers. We didn't get drink service until about 2 hours into the flight. Terrible. Food was boring and bad. Finally- we had to pay for wine and beer. On a $1000 flight? I have traveled internationally at least 15 times and this was by far the worst flight yet."
Pros: "Able to check carry on before boarding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and the lounge was not large enough to accommodate all of the passengers in Toronto."
Pros: "Arriving and getting off the plane."
Cons: "They boarded and the moment everyone was seated, de-borded to change planes, resulting in a 2 hour delay. The crew was inattentive taking and delivering drink orders, which took an astounding length of time after payment, about 1 hour."
Cons: "I found the seats a bit tight."
Pros: "i was late and they still let me get on"
Cons: "All the small planes are cramped and noisy"
Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."
Cons: "Simple mistakes which could and should have been avoided made us late. The food and drink service should not have been a charge on such a long flight."
Pros: "Nice travelling on a larger aircraft."
Cons: "We were late arriving in Toronto and our connecting flight was scheduled to depart 20-25 mins from landing and we still needed to get off the plane. Even though the flight staff did request that those individuals who did not have a tight connection to allow those with a tight connection to pass through more quickly - most passengers didn't cooperate. A better process needs to be put in place to ensure those whom have connections are able to meet them."
Cons: "Flight left almost one hour late"
Cons: "Small seat, cold food, main dish was not good, poor selection of movies"
Cons: "Small plane a lot of confusion at airport with gate attendant."
Cons: "My sister is still stuck in Paris after she was rerouted there from Toronto to catch a Royal Air Maroc flight. The air canada office closed and the phone line people have failed to ensure that her ticket was paid for so she's been stuck for two days in Paris and traveling a total of three days!!"
Pros: "Cheap and direct to Athens from Toronto."
Cons: "Tiniest seats ever, no plugs, no screen for a 10 hour flight, and I always get the shits after eating the food on air Canada rouge."
