Pros: "Comfortable seats."

Pros: "Hasn’t occurred yet"
Cons: "Hasn’t occurred yet"

Pros: "Well coordinated loading of plane. Good food service. Well informed.."
Cons: "Nothing.."

Cons: "Had to cancel trip because a passenger was hit by a car one week before the trip. Refused a refund by the airline."

Pros: "Entertainment options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."

Pros: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."

Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I can’t be more demanding. Everything on the flight were good."

Cons: "Long lines for security in Auckland, so I barely made the flight to Chicago. There were delays in Chicago due to the weather."

Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"

Pros: "I was disappointed that Air New Zealand charges US15 to reserve specific seats. For our party of 3, that would be US90 RT so I didn't do it. But at the gate I asked for window seats and the attendant gave us excellent seats at the front of the plane."
Cons: "No issues that caused us any problems."

Pros: "Very spacious seats and good entertainment system. Two meals provided. Good blankets provided with pillows. Spacious and clean bathroom."
Cons: "My usb charging plug didn’t work and I wish they sent me an email in advance or told me upon check in what the requirements were that I would have to show upon boarding. I was not prepared to show them my follow on flight schedule (leaving NZ) but I would have been prepared if I had known in advance"

Cons: "Terrible customer service."

Pros: "Nice seats in Business"
Cons: "2 hour delay"

Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants"

Pros: "Baggage made it all the way to Queenstown from Perth"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"

Pros: "The airport was great! Very easy access, fast check in and security. Loved the LOTR theme. Uneventful and beautiful flight."

Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."

Cons: "Crew forgot to serve us our meal."

Pros: "The seats are super comfy and the staff are lovely and very attentive to ones needs. The only down fall would be that I had to pay for movies and a meal wasn’t included with my flight, but that’s minor. Also, baggage cost me 120.AUD for one bag! I thought that was pretty outrageous for one check in bag. But the pilot was very good and informative as the overall flight was smooth. Thanks again air New Zealand."
Cons: "Over priced check in bag. Due to it not being according to weight. Ridiculous."

Pros: "The pilot would tell us as we were flying over different mountains, regions etc, and the flight was not at all crowded, and there is so much more seat space than on any domestic American flight I’ve ever flown!"
Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."

Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Paid extra $100 for 2”premium “seats. What a joke. And no entertainment for an 11hour flight!!"

Pros: "The friendliness of the crew."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"

Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."

Pros: "Good lleg room in the aircraft. Friendly service."

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."

Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."

Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"

Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"

Pros: "I liked having the pilot tell us about the mountains as we passed over them."
