Airline reviews

Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"

Pros: "Only a 25 minute flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"

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: "Easy flight."

Pros: "The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was very cold so the cabin could have been warmer"

Pros: "Seat hard on older aircraft, needs new cushioning on seat"

Pros: "As I was in premium economy it was of course amazing, however it was a very packed premium compared to my previous experience so wasn’t as comfortable but still amazing."
Cons: "The selection of movies currently was a bit lacking."

Pros: "Crew was really nice however slightly absent during the flight."
Cons: "Drinks should have been more frequently offered . Refreshments/water seemed hard to come by I had to chase them down in the galley only to get luke warm water...? Seats are pretty cramped and small with not much room."

Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"

Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Our stewardess was very helpful for our tight connection. She helped with instructions on finding our next gate and gave specific information on making the airport easier to maneuver."
Cons: "On time fights would have made our day better and less stressful."

Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."

Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"

Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."

Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"

Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"

Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"

Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"

Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"

Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"

Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"

Pros: "The entire group of employees were excellent, and very friendly."

Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."

Pros: "Friendly, courteous crew"
Cons: "Seat dimensions seem to have shrunk noticeably. Very little leg room"

Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"

Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."

Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."

Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"

Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."

Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."

Pros: "everything, crew best. Bit chilly and the FA put a blanket over my name without me even asking! Yummy food, I was late to boarding but easy to get on. Can't wait until they get Wifi!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."

Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."

Pros: "The business class on Air New Zealand is the space and comfort level all airlines should have in all classes of seating. I could comfortably fly to Europe from California in business class on this airline."

Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."

Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"

Pros: "No complaints at all"

Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."

Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."
