Cons: "Waited 55 minutes for baggage claim in Auckland. No reason given. I expect better service from Air New Zealand even though I understand the baggage handler’s are different group"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the food as always and overall, I felt very comfortable"
Cons: "I enjoyed my experience overall."
Cons: "Breakfast was not tasty. Options could have been better."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, very hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "The seating in economy class is abysmal. The seats are extremely small and the rows are to close together. There is no leg room. The seat cushioning is almost nonexistent. It's like sitting and leaning back on a board. On this last trip I had a window seat. I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs."
Pros: "Sat in business class pods. Best flights we’ve ever taken !"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Business class lay-flat seats and a private cubby."
Cons: "Boarding required a bus ride to a distant terminal rather than direct boarding from the terminal."
Pros: "The space!"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Can’t remember"
Cons: "Food selection specially for vegetarian"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Not being scammed on bag charges."
Pros: "New Zealand Air staff were friendly, informative and courteous throughout the entire flight! I was floored by their service and by what was offered. They even worked to arrange for people to move around (some were packed 4 to a row, but there was plenty of space throughout the craft)."
Pros: "The crew, the entertainment, the cleanliness and the overall experience was lovely"
Cons: "Lights could have gone fully off during a red eye international for sleeping."
Pros: "Upgrading to Skycoach giving extra leg room was well worth it."
Cons: "They need to bring around water more often. And actually offer it to people in the window seat."
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."
Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it."
Cons: "Superb airline"
Pros: "Crew did a very good job"
Cons: "Trip was the roughest I have ever been on for virtually the entire time. Could not sleep. Business class cabin was also had the most noise of any front of airplane experience I have had."

Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"
Pros: "Entertainment was great, food was great, and the overall flight experience was better than the first time travelling this airline. Airhosts/esses we’re very polite as well. Would try it again soon!"
Cons: "Airhosts/esses took a long time to pick up our trays after our meal."
Pros: "Good selection of movies I thought."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 50 mins. Missed my connecting flight from Auckland, so had to spend 3 hours at the airport. A voucher for internet access would’ve been nice."
Cons: "I was connecting on an International flight on same airline, New Zealand Air, and did not see where I was required to pay for our one checked bags for my wife and I. When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."
Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."
Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being sel-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity."
Pros: "Attendants were friendly. The agent at the gate rerouted my flight after my initial flight was delayed. She explained she did that so that I could make my international connection in time."
Pros: "the crew was very attentive and nice."
Cons: "due to a medical emergency, we sat on the plane for two hours before a decision could be made as to whether or not we needed to return to the gate. keep in mind, this was in addition to the 13 hour flight from LAX to NZ. it was a very long evening/day of travel."
Pros: "I paid $100 to "upgrade" to what was called premium, but I did not get a premium seat, and discerned no benefit. Wtf is this?"
Cons: "paid $100 to "upgrade" to what was called premium, but I did not get a premium seat, and discerned no benefit. Wtf is this?"
Pros: "There was so much I loved, but what really stood out was the mood was set from the beginning....music, lighting, and the welcome message on the screens that were personalized for passengers. Great food and the friendliest airline crew ever. I also loved the safety video....it wasn't boring even though I knew to he information."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the middle row, but even then....I couldn't complain.....most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."
Pros: "Food service"
Pros: "We were allowed to check one bag for free...that's awesome. And we were provided with two full meals on the flight, more food than we could eat. And even a complimentary alcoholic drink! Great selection of movies. New Zealand Air is one of the best flying experiences I've had"
Pros: "everything! Leg room, priority boarding even though we boarded close to last, snacks. That safe feeling :)"
Cons: "nothing!"
Cons: "the person next too me was overflowing in their seat so much they took up a quarter of my spot.. it was not work making the flight uncomfortable by making a stink about it but I paid for a whole seat not 3/4 of one!"
Pros: "The crew were uniformly wonderful! They had a bunch of kids from the NZ equivalent of make-a-wish on board so they all dressed up. Anything we needed they provided with a smile."
Cons: "The lay down seats are particularly hard and it is almost impossible to look out the window in business class"
Cons: "Just a bit cramped"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, crew was nice, flight was very smooth"
Cons: "Took forever to take off, but not company fault"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight had gluten free meals. Crew was professional"
Cons: "45 minutes late so missed connecting flight. While anz booked me on the next flight, international flights shouldn't be that late"
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: "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: "It was s safe flight."
Cons: "I didn't feel valued and appreciated. Poor options for complementary food service."
Pros: "Crew helpful, congenial."
Cons: "Anticipated more legroom based on seat chart diagram."
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: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."
Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I did not fly from Brisbane to Auckland"

Food options should be better for vegetarians

Nice

Comfortable flight, very kind crew. Food was average. Good night use my headset to listen to movies and music which is typical for airlines. Why not offer a subtitles on All movies? I was told to be at the airport 3 1/2 hours before flight but boarding did not start until 2 1/2 hours before flight. In ability to check in online remains frustrating

Pros: "Great crew, excellent staff at the airport. Planes were nice and comfortable. Food was ok. They have an excellent price to quality ratio; you can often get great prices on some of the more popular destinations and the service is 5 stars."
Cons: "Some alcoholic drinks"
Pros: "Seats were ok but they often were out of vege options"
Cons: "I wanted to upgrade to business class but the process was problematic— had to be done at transfer desk not at gate — after i had been thru security ☹️ Discouraged ne from trying"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive & met all my expectations."
Pros: "crew was very sweet"
Cons: "food and wine options were terrible"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food and seat comfort could be better"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight"
Cons: "The boarding process in Chicago wasn’t great. Zones were not used"
Pros: "Short flight. Attentive crew"
Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "The airlines' film library offers plenty of movies to watch."
Cons: "I had an aisle seat. The crew pushed the service carts in the gangway and hit me a couple of times, and I was very much annoyed because I was waken up while asleep."
Pros: "Movies and onboard games were good. So was the food. Crew took good care of us and the toilets were clean"
Cons: "We couldn't lower the seats backwards. It was horror for eight hours. And one little tv didn't work but they gave my wife a diferent, better seat because of that. We had a long layover, 12 hours, and they said we didn't have rights for anything. So we went to the city on our one because we didn't want to go on organized tour that we need to pay extra money"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was fine."
Cons: "Crew was not very organized or helpful. Need more training/experience."
Cons: "The flight got delayed which caused me to miss my connection flight. I was at the gate of my connection flight 5 minutes before the departure, however, they did not let me in. They transferred my flight and now I have to wait 24 hours for the next flight."
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "The plane was very new and wasn’t crowded."
Cons: "The arrival time was slightly delayed but overall it was okay. The hot food again can be improved as the chicken dish had no vegetables (even though there was a side salad dish). The waiting lounge at Doha airport gate was a bit cramped, and the bus ride from the gate to the aircraft was also a bit long."
Pros: "The crew was FANTASTIC!! SO kind and helpful, and went out of their way the whole flight to assist us with anything and everything we needed! :)"
Cons: "Snacks and drinks could be betteri"
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Pros: "Crew and their promptness to assist"
Cons: "Vegetarian food - portion is too little. This has been the third time with Qatar and the food portion are too little."
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: "Service, entertainment, crew were all excellent!"
Cons: "Flight length"
Pros: "Everything was first class with excellent service"
Cons: "Long flight with long layover in Doha"
Pros: "First it was a brand new airplane and only that but it came with good food selection and enough spaces for tall guys like me ."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Pros: "Great service and crew"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "Seat not very good"
Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Old plane treating the Africans like poor people of no value .. All other Qatar flights have newer aircrafts"
Cons: "There's not food which was on menu I did not eat"
Pros: "Good amenity kit. Decent food offerings. Great range of alcoholic beverages"
Cons: "Business class crew were overstretched and inattentive. Had to find my own seat and flag crew down for hot towel."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Nice airlines"
Pros: "It is an average economy flight. Crew was very attentive and helpful. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Not much to say for an economy flight. Comfort is always compromised regardless of airline. It gets worse as the flight is longer."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Catering and seating. They ran out of food and drinks"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Cons: "Other passengers pushing, coughing & sneezing without proper sanitary measures; dirty toilets. This reflects on the education level of passengers, not the crew, but it still makes flying into Jeddah on packed flights particularly miserable."
Pros: "New airplane. Friendly air hostesses and top notch service.. British Airways can say goodbye to my money"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The food was amazing and so were the staff, would definitely fly Qatar again and recommend it to others!"
Cons: "The layover is very short, my first flight from LAX to Doha was 40 mins late so I barely made last call from Doha to Dubai and my bags didn't make it. I did however have my luggage delivered the next day to where I was staying in Al Ain for free so that was great!"
Pros: "bathrooms had liquid on the floor sloshing around from about 1 hr after take off. Flight attendants need a disposable towel to put down. Nasty bathroom are not pleasant."
Cons: "i was blessed with 3 seats in a row. Had trouble lying down because the arm rests don't go up all the way. The seat belt connectors were not recessed, so they poked me in the side. The movie selection was only so - so. See the selection from Singapore airlines if you want to see a good example. I have many food allergies - for the sweet & savory snacks, the ingredients are in Latin - like a place holder ready for when they get the real words to put there. e.g. dolorem ipsum ..."
Cons: "Because they lost my begs and don't have clothes to wear. Me and my wife had a worst experience with Qatar Airlines and never take that in future."
Pros: "I loved the hospitality and the smooth comfortable flight. The plane was full but there was enough space for everyone to relax comfortably during the flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The staff was good and food as well had a great trip"

Service

I've always preferred Qantas, and the service is still generally good, but someone has taken their eye off the food offering. Back from NZ it was noodles with a sauce in a cardboard box. No cheese and biscuits, no sweet. Air Tahiti/Air Cailin, etc.. give a decent meal while on International.

Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"
Pros: "Service from the moment of getting near the booking counter was excellent. Flight was on time and staff were great."
Cons: "The sandwich for lunch was boring and the bread was not very nice."
Pros: "Good movies make for a quick trip"
Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Cons: "Baby stroller was sent to baggage claim. I had to walk with small baby and a bunch of bags through all steps instead of using the stroller."
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."
Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."
Pros: "Vegetarian food was good!"
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "The crew was always courteous, helpful, and patient with everyone. They just seemed to have much better attitudes than I’ve seen with other airlines, at least this crew did. Even the food was good!"
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."
Cons: "Cant think of a thing."
Pros: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "I had a flight Auckland-London, booked through Emirates but operated by Qantas. The flight got to London with a delay of 2 hours 20 min, because they made us wait 2 hours 20 min more than planned in Dubai, where incidentally all the other Emirates flights had no delay, only our Qantas one. This made me lose my next flight (to Luxembourg) and have to pay for a new flight and stay that night in London. Since I had booked them separately, no one helped or offered any compensation."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Very poor legroom, felt very cramped for an international flight. The infotainment system in my seat, and some others didn't work."
Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."
Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"
Pros: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing."
Cons: "Minimal food and drink service."
Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."
Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."
Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."
Pros: "When checking in, the lady at the counter gave us great instruction on how to board and what to expect in customs when we landed in New Zealand."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."
Pros: "Wrote a story published in the Samoa News today"
Cons: "Never got my bag in Sydney and I am enroute to the Kingdom of Tonga now"
Pros: "Screen size is better and bigger"

This was a short connecting flight, so food and entertainment were not available. Just light snack, which was understandable. Flight on time, and no complaints.

The booking agent was more than a total disaster!! No replies and not the right flight booked!! Avoid them - you have been warned!!! Pathetic service and money grabbers!!

One of the most pleasurable regional jet flights I’ve had. Super quick boarding - ultra pleasant crew and really smooth flight, departure and landing. Excellent job, crew!

Pros: "Boarding in Bozeman was good."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear the pilot at all, which was disconcerting through a pretty turbulent flight. Unclear about beverage service; some people seemed to get drinks but no one ever asked if we wanted anything. Finally the app did not work consistently for in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "food & drink!!"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Pros: "The crew was great. They especially did a remarkable job keeping bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Food is definitely not as good as international airlines."
Pros: "The flight was great. Smooth ride with little turbulence. Great FREE entertainment options on screen. Boarding was quick and orderly for a full flight. Ability to charge my phone."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Limited snack option."
Cons: "I bought ticket on British airways. If I had known I would be switched to AA, I would have just bought it there & paid less"
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"
Cons: "Provide notice about baggages were loaded on one next flight."
Cons: "If we had access to the WiFi to watch shows earlier like United does, that would be nice."
Pros: "Comfortable plane."
Cons: "K&yak was awful. Tossed me to a low end third party provider once booked. Never go through them again."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and kept things running snooth"
Cons: "There was no flight entertainment and the seats and rows were cramped"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly tasty for airplane food, vote would be lovely if someone could figure out how to produce a hash brown at the passenger seat without having it be limp"
Cons: "I’m guessing that a great many passengers would happily pay 10% more on their fair to have 10% fewer seats on board so that was actually possible to achieve a state of modest comfort while flying in a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Pros: "Good entertainment. Gate agents friendly and efficient"
Pros: "The seats in coach were too narrow for comfort...and I'm a medium size."
Pros: "How can you serve food like that."
Cons: "Drinks were fare , had to ask for seconds 10 hour flight. Where were they. I got up and got my own."
Cons: "Nothing. It was cancelled with little to none explanation"
Cons: "American wins tge coach torture contest!"
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"
Cons: "For an obviously new aircraft the space between rows was horrendous. I am 5ft4in tall and when I sat down my knees touched the seat in front of me. When the passenger in front of me tilted his seat back I couldn’t even cross my legs! I like Qantas but I have learned to abhor American Airlines (which operated this flight), next time I will probably use Air New Zealand purely because of the seat situation."
Cons: "Food service was not announced. Take off was delayed one hour"
Pros: "New plane, great crew on board."
Cons: "seats were hard especially for a 13 1/2 hour flight."
Pros: "Very upset this was an American Airlines Plane and not Quantas. There was very little room so it was an extremely uncomfortable 13+ hour redeye flight."
Cons: "Bait and switch tactics, size of seats."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Cons: "The seats were really bad, it was our first trip on a 787 and I will never do it again. Not as bad as the Airbus from MIA but considering it's 13 hours it was totally rubbish. We normally fly the 777 with Air NZ, after this we will go back to them. The staff, as always were helpfull and pleasant, the plane was quiet but the seats....."
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Seats were very small and very tight bags did not stow under seats like usual"
Pros: "Have not travelled AA in a long time due to my disappointed but today's flight changed my opinion. Was impressed with every thing except that 1 cookie and a cup of water. Not a deterrent though"
Pros: "Great service and friendly stafg"
Cons: "Loved the yourt for breakfadt...rest of it was ok"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Big lines for the kiosks to print out the boarding pass, after that another line to drop off the lauggages. We left late. Horrible food. Uncomfortable sits. NO INDIVIDUAL TV."
Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Cons: "."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Disaster"
Cons: "tiny plane with uncomfortable, old seats. no entertainment options on a 3 hour flight. No food options for purchase."
Pros: "Wonderful flight"
Cons: "I am an AA member and usually fly them domestic. The seats are horribly uncomfortable for an international flight. The flight attendants woke you up for meals. There is no space between you and the seat in front of you and they didn't tell anyone to put their seat up while you were eating. It was really difficult to get comfortable. I find it easy to fall asleep on planes and I couldn't fall asleep on this one."
Cons: "They lost 1 of 4 bags."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Departed on time, arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Our checked luggage didn't make the transfer in Philadelphia. We got it late the following day. What entertainment?"
Cons: "The weather was bad in Dallas preventing our landing. Our plane had to be diverted to be refueled which caused us to miss our connecting flight. There was no one at the counter to help us, but one of the crew told us to call the 800 number which told us our connecting flight was in the air. When we finally found someone to help us, they rescheduled us for the next flight out 11 hours later. When we asked about accommodations, we were told there would be none since it was weather related. Then we were told we could "look for a cot", but she didn't know where any cots were."
Cons: "Seats far too close together even for cosch"
Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to request to not sit next to someone carrying on a pet."
Cons: "Jetway should not be backed up all the way to the counter. Stop calling so many groups for boarding without knowing that no one is actually getting onboard. Force subsequent groups to step aside until called."

great personal interaction by flight staff. Small point. Having missed eating the main meal served just after boarding as I needed to sleep as I had been travelling 24 hours , the promised inflight light snack was not offered and not obvious how to get it. Would have appreciated more drinks offered throughout the flight.

Everything was well from checking to landing. Only thing would be the entertainment. A lot of outdated Tv shows and movies.

Pros: "The cabin temperature was hot before and during the flight."
Cons: "Cabin temp."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was super warm. I was uncomfortable. I was told that with Layover I would receive my check in bag for Hotel stay. the attendant took a discription of my luggage for other united employees to tell me it would take 3 hours to retrieve my luggage. They didn’t even try to look for it or help me. Then what’s the point of taking my discription down? Now I have to stay at a hotel with nothing on me. So ridiculous and rude."
Cons: "They boarded us in spite of the fact that the flight had been delayed 40 minutes. We were all getting alerts on our phones but were told to disregard it and board anyway. We then had to sit on the runway for 40+ minutes until we could take off. Since we were traveling with two small children, it would have been preferable to spend those extra 40 minutes in the terminal rather than on the plane."
Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":("
Pros: "Great experience!"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Pleasant, uneventful flights."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
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: "Not the flights problem that I have sciatic issues and get very unconfortable, not going to lie I was more uncomfortable than I thought I’d be. Bathrooms were clean and staff was wonderful! Besides the long flight and my own back issues, great flight."
Cons: "If I upgraded to first class!"
Pros: "The flight attendant was very sweet and helpful."
Cons: "Every.single.time I take this flight we sit and wait for upwards of 30 minutes for someone to be available to park/unload the plane. The wait is so consistent it’s ridiculous."
Cons: "Original flight through Houston was delayed and rerouted through SFO. Then the connecting SFO flight was delayed and missed original flight. Spent 24 additional hours at the airport to catch the next available direct flight. Had an aisle seat but then put between two men who took both armrests for 15 hours."
Pros: "Hearing progress and warnings of turbulence ahead, everything else great - flight attendants especially."
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."
Pros: "Great service, quick and easy!"
Pros: "No problems to deal with"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "It took 35+ mins for bags to be unloaded in claim area. And I was 1st class!"
Cons: "Plane as dirty and dislike direct tv"
Pros: "Upgraded Business Economy was much nicer than regular Economy. The flight got in to Tampa early."
Cons: "Bathroom not maintained during flight. Vomiting child seated behind us (which I know was not the airlines fault, it was gross though)."
Cons: "We waited an hour and a half for de-icing in Bozeman and I nearly missed a connecting flight in Denver"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Informative Gate Attendant Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "I couldn't take my computer bag on board and had to empty it because of the small space overhead. Bozeman airport was very nice. Easy to maneuver in the airport."
Cons: "Way overcharge for 3rd bag -$150 for single relatively small bag!"
Cons: "Getting bags checked was a nightmare in Bozeman with United. Way understaffed behind the counter. This is a typical problem in Bozeman at Peaks."
Cons: "Wifi was unusable 90+% of the time, will request a refund. All coach seats will be terrible on a 12 hour flight...I had exit row "window"...no window, and the slide mechanism consumed all my leg room. But, I could get out, if I needed, and I could lean on the bulkhead. Most of the crew were fine, but some were a bit directive and one appeared to be going through the motions."
Pros: "Magazine was worth reading"
Cons: "Boarding process is broken. They start boarding on time, 50 minutes before the flight, but the group system they use doesn't get people on efficiently. Both legs of the flight took over an hour before the plane was remotely ready to move."
Pros: "The seating seemed a bit more spacious~very much appreciated!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "On time. Comfortable"
Pros: "Good solid trip. No issues and went smooth. Your team Was good both ways."
Cons: "Late full lounge bad food"
Pros: "I like being able to use the United App,"
Cons: "I don't like having to pay for all entertainment in the headrest tvs. The app is much more convenient."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "Warm friendly competent staff."
Pros: "Employees were very nice"
Cons: "Seating very cramped I'm six foot one maybe you guys should look at JetBlue"
Pros: "smooth check in, effortless boarding"
Cons: "1/3 of a soda can for a drink? Just give the clients a can for heaven's sake! too short a flight for much but the snacks are pretty tiny"
Cons: "IT system outtage, grounded all domestic flights"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6.5 hours. Then they delayed another hour. Then they sent a message that it would only be an additional 30 minutes so we rushed back. Then it was delayed another 2 hours. The United people would have happily stuck me with an overnight hotel so I could take their flight the next morning. I asked for the AA routing that worked for a same-day arrival. They happily agreed."
Cons: "Hard to sleep, turbulence"
Cons: "We were connecting to this flight after flying in from Rome. Initially we were scheduled for an 8:30pm flight, but after landing early asked if we could change to an earlier flight. They graciously bumped us up to a 7:30pm flight, which trimmed our 4-hour layover down to 3pm. Cut to 6:15pm...we find out that the flight is not delayed AN HOUR due to a "late inbound flight." Long story short, the 7:30pm flight ended up departed later than the 8:30pm flight we were originally scheduled on so we didn't get to LA until after we were originally supposed to!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Luggage lost or left in Chicago with meds including insulin, had to stay in motel in Portland, ME to wait for morning flight. Hope luggage is on that flight. He needed his meds and only wanted to help when they said there was too much baggage. Mr. Perrin had only one carrying with everything in it. The flight itself was fine and he had good aisle seats and wheelchair at all points, but the lost luggage with the important meds caused a problem. We hope United found it."
Pros: "Held flight from Chicago to Harrisburg so we could make connection. Arrived MDT only 30 minutes later than original schedule."
Pros: "The crew was the most polite, calm and reassuring crew I've ever come across. When faced with the mounting frustrations of a cabin full of delayed passengers, these guys were smooth as silk. Bravo!"
Cons: "Being grounded due to weather is unfortunate, but the team did so well in managing expectations, it's hard to be mad."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Unfortantely their was a mechanical problem that delayed the flight. I understand that failures occur, but only having one mechanic available to work this problem is not good. What happend to the two person concept when working on critical aircraft systems? Pretty hard landing at Chicago."
Pros: "New seats (more room & comfort) & movies"
