Cons: "Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount."
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: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."
Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."
Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."

Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"

They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."

Pros: "On time service and the captain was good with updates"
Cons: "Everything was fine. Nothing stands out as great or bad."
Pros: "Finally the staggered deboarding. It feels like COVID has actually disciplined us passengers this time and kept us from behaving like unruly cattle once the plane halts."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction. Perhaps reservation team can trigger a call to the passengers while they are still at home asking for the documentation validation electronically over a secured database.... just a thought. Again, being a part of the Experience and Innovation team, travel and tourism needs less human interaction, now more than ever. While we digitalized the obvious, the exceptions can remain humanized."
Cons: "The lounge is a bit far from the departure gate, so I waited with regular economy class travelers. It would have been nice to have had a closer dedicated area for business class."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "No entertainment available. A very old plane."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Pros: "Every thing is good in Qatar airways"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very helpful and cheerful and everyone had a smile on their face."
Cons: "Entertainment devices are slow to respond."

Pros: "The Crew The Food"
Cons: "The fact that we (my son and I) had to wait at the airport for over 9hours transiting. right after a 9hr 35miins journey."
Pros: "Very unfriendly and non cooperative ground staff. They treat different colored people differently"
Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"
Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."
Cons: "Ground crew attitude at checkin,boarding. Only drink choices 2 juice boxes with sad snack. Entertainment screen malfunctioned, poor sound quality cf prior leg. Long rescreening process on connection FROM USA flight. Long wait to deplane to stairs/shuttle bus. Long wait for luggage."
Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"
Cons: "Could add paper towels to toilets. Tissues are too soft to wash up and dry hands and face!"

Pros: "Landing and botding is safe"
Pros: "I liked everything from A to Z! the aircraft was spacious and new. The staff were very friendly and cooperative and attentive. the seat was comfortable and entertainment system was great!"
Pros: "I liked the open space not fully booked flight. Nice leg room and lots of choices of shows to watch"
Cons: "Not quite enough space if I were sitting alone. Men pee on toilet seats"
Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service outstanding"
Pros: "The crew was always present. The food was good too."

Pros: "It was a long flight from US but was comfortable. Staff was courteous."
Pros: "Always exciting heading into Hamad intl Apt."
Cons: "Small plane heading back into Doha from Dubai. Please change to dreamlimer for the roundtrip. Also, yes we get it, its a short flight. But not all of us are good at making conversation with strangers. You have a quality name, keep with the program" give out headsets, they cost nothing to make in China!"
Pros: "Stewardesses were more helpful on this flight than we had experienced on the previous flights. However their resources were limited. landed safely."
Cons: "Food on the four different flights (from DFW to Doha on to Cape Town and then from Johannesburg to Doha on to DWF) was not good at all. Timing of meals, food all below expected. One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "Layover was short"
Cons: "I was charged for my carry on that they then forced me to check. Then one of the stewards on the second leg was an outright nasty woman regarding masks. I had my mask over nose and mouth. But apparently not enough and then she was loudly talking to the other flight attendants about it. One told me “I was perfectly fine.”"
Pros: "The crew was helpful accommodating, the flight was smooth and it was just a very pleasant experience overall"
Cons: "Seats are REALLY small"
Pros: "Boarded on time in challenging weather in Chicago. Got to Orlando on a day we could well have had problems getting a plane with the weather."
Cons: "The seat was the usual uncomfortable coach seat."
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Plane wasn’t full, crew was great"

Cons: "Flight 4 hours late, no explanation."
Cons: "The crew and the people do the tickets are very rude"
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Cons: "Just a couple passengers slow to get suitcases in overhead slowed people down. Nothing United needed to fix. You all were great. Loved the flight attendants’s humor too."
Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Cons: "Not on time, flight got cancelled and they just rebooked to the next day with no support for overnight stay, rental, etc."
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"
Cons: "Delays and poor communication. Ended up on other airline and 14 hrs to get from Madison, WI to Baltimore, MD"
Cons: "No tv Flight delayed"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Every time I paused my movie, it was difficult to resume it. I couldn't watch the last half at all."
Pros: "The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour but not notified of the length of the delay in a fashion which would allow me to drive the 2 hours to Chicago in order to make my connection. Repeatedly told the connecting flight was the last one out of the entire airport to my final destination. Heard other travelers discussing that they had been rebooked onto an alternate airline and then found a later flight on Kayak, walked up to podium and asked to be rebooked on that specific flight, which they grudgingly did. Of note, I was repeatedly reassured that they were "sure" I would make my connection without a problem and to stop worrying so much. My flight left out of Madison 2 minutes after my connection departed Chicago. I usually fly a different airline, whose flights out of Madison were all on time that day, and will do so in the future despite more expensive ticket. The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Pros: "Cheap tix"
Pros: "There is nothing positive to say."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 8 hours. We boarded and unboarded the plane 3 times. Why didn't they just cancel the flight? I missed my connecting flight. No food or beverage service. Didn't even let us use the airplane bathroom after a long delay. I paid to check my luggage and they LOST it and sent it to the wrong airport."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "The fact that we got there safely."
Cons: "Took them 90 minutes to fix a seat belt because they kept bringing the wrong part. They got it right the third try. The cabin crew sat in the back and chatted for an hour while we sat at gate. Not even a glass of water offered. Then we were diverted to Pittsburg because of weather and sat for an hour. Again no water offered. So on 5 plus hour flight crew went around once. The final straw was they blamed weather for the delay when in fact it was not being able to find the correct seat belt in due time."
Pros: "Half-hour flight, early to destination, which gave us plenty of time for our connecting flight."
Cons: "Why pay extra for baggage? This should be included in the ticket price -- which incidentally was not cheap!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "I haven't made it there yet. Flight leaves 4PM Friday. Mechanical problems in Chicago so was put up in Hyatt and I am at the airport now waiting to fly out at 4PM today."
Pros: "Gate agent handled impossible situation well"
Cons: "flight was canceled due to mechanical problems on two of the airplanes"
Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "I took 4 different flights and all the crews seemed to all be moody."
Pros: "Getting a seat in economy plus! (But I think that happened because I had trouble using the online seat booking process and couldn't get a seat assignment till I got to the gate for my Albany flight, probably the only seat available) also liked arriving early in Albany."
Cons: "Arriving at the end of terminal C and having to trek to the end of terminal B for my connecting flight. Supposedly a one hour window, but by the time I got off, and made that enormous trek, no time to get a meal. Going to Madison flights left from almost adjoining gates. Lovely!"
Pros: "They kept us well hydrated"
Cons: "How far I had to get to me next flight in Chicago"
Cons: "Internet service & power outlets didn't work"
Pros: "On time..nice staff"
Pros: "Tsa stopped all in my party for private screening to run us very late.."
Cons: "Long boarding and delayed flight, lots of walking"
Cons: "The baggage claim at San Luis obispo was not acceptable"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time. Flight attendant has a rock star!! Did her job above and beyond what I have seen in the past."
Cons: "United airlines crew said that the plane had on board computer problems and then the crew said they couldn't fly because they were timed out on hours and we sat for 3 hrs in the plane only to here that they cancelled the flight and I had to scramble to find another flight to get to my destination"
Pros: "I liked the crew members"
Cons: "Weeichair service was late"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off."
Cons: "Unable to depart due to pilot wanting windows washed. Created significant delay. Had to rebook flight for next day. Additional cost as a result. I will seek a refund which was due to the delay."
Pros: "The price, fact it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Both flights had mechanical problems, causing delays, the wait for luggage back in New York, over25 minutes"
Cons: "Arrived well before the recommended 1 hour in advance for the domestic flight. Lines to move through their security wrapped around the terminal on multiple floors. Called customer service for assistance and they reported there was nothing they could do. Reminded them that it is their responsibility to manage these types of issues such as telling passenger to arrive 2 hours ahead if they have been aware of this chronic issue. They told me they had no way of contacting the airline staff at the airport to assist us Completely unprofessional, poor customer care and inefficient. Will not be flying with United out of Newark NJ again. If it weren't for the friendly passenger in line who let us move ahead we would have missed the flight. Just made it before the gate to the aircraft closed."
Pros: "Kayak updates including delayed departure"
Cons: "Seat was a bit cramped"
