Cons: "Very nice services"

Pros: "Super easy"

Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Very prompt and efficient"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Not being scammed on bag charges."

Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"

Pros: "Nice, short flight. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two very large women. Couldn't be helped, was a full flight."

Pros: "Good for a sheot flight"

Cons: "I was not able to travel. When I reached the airport, I was told that I needed a transit visa for my 1.5 hr stopover in Auckland."

Pros: "Upgrading to Skycoach giving extra leg room was well worth it."

Pros: "Wellington airport is the most accessible and relaxed I’ve used, and the Air New Zealand Check-in process was the easiest I’ve used so far."

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: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"

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: "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: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."

Cons: "Probably just the delay and time management for boarding"

Cons: "The attendants at the desk for check in were rud. The flight was delayed. No service, food or entertainment during the flight"

Cons: "Not even some food to wait"

Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask. The flight was on time."
Cons: "It was a flight we've done heaps before. It would be nice to have all luggage actually transferred through from Napier to Manchester as it's an added challenge when also carting babies around."

Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "On time departure/arrival"

Pros: "I got to my next destination"
Cons: "The $320 charge for our bags at check in!!!! No mention from kayak that there is a higher charge for bags if u pay after U buy the ticket. The walk outside To get on and off the plane. Nothing good about this airline or the lack of adequate description of their ridiculous policies from Kayak"

Pros: "Great price."

Pros: "Reasonable price, quite helpful at check-in, got extra leg room for this 6ft. plus frame."

Pros: "flight smooth with bad weather, competent pilots"
Cons: "Bagage fee extortion, we were a family of four and had to pay $200 US dollars for 4 bags because it was not paid online. I wasn't sure what everyone was bringing yet when I booked tickets. the baggage agent told us it would have been less than ten dollars per bag if booked online. I can see doubling the price but not quadrupling... the luggage is still boarding the plane, whether you pay 10 or 50 dollars, it doesn't change anything other than they make more money off of the passengers."

Pros: "Service was awesome0000"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "Crew very helpful thanks. A bit rough to have to pay 4 baggage in top of paying 4 flight.On international flights, yr baggage is included in the price ."

Pros: "Ground staff and attendants were great!"
Cons: "No entertainment and have to pay for food, not even a drink."

Cons: "Delayed due to "engineering problems longer than usual" for incoming flight into Wellington. Then jet bridge door at AKL wouldn't open which added more time. Frustrating when travel is time sensitive."

Pros: "Nothing, never, ever go on Jetstar"
Cons: "No explanation, no time table, awful service."

Pros: "it got us there"
Cons: "2.5 hrs late an no idea when we were leaving"

Cons: "That I had to pay another $60 for the cost of checking a bag."

Pros: "From check in to arrival at Auckland, service was great and just as I expected!"

Pros: "The cabine crew"
Cons: "40 mn delay on a 3h45 flight is a little bit too much. Airplane not really comfortable and noisy. But that is what low cost means, right?!"

Pros: "Low price, on time departure"
Cons: "No food or entertainment options. Seats mediocre in comfort."

Pros: "Service. Timings. Pro attitude"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Easy, efficient"
Cons: "Very expensive"

Pros: "Was in an exit seat, and stewardess were both very friendly."

Cons: "I don't like how you charge outrageous fees for bags if you make the mistake of checking your bag at the airport instead of online. I just got my phone in March and someone else made the reservation for me. He didn't know about checking the bag online either. I needed my bag, so I was forced to pay the outrageous fee. I feel ripped off and very unhappy about it."

Pros: "I am still in denpasar"

Cons: "Delays in both directions"

Pros: "They left on time."
Cons: "The Jetstar checkin staff. They are not very friendly. I was a few kilos overweight and I had nothing but grief from them - as well as my purse put on the scales - which added to the weight. I have never had my purse put on the scales before. I ended up having to pay $160.00 Australian for a few kilos. My fare did not even cost that much. As far as I am concerned Jetstar need a watchdog to take this up on travellers behalf. How can a few filos cost that much - when you can book your luggage through for $25.00."

Cons: "Left late and ripped the handle off my case."

Pros: "Easy booking"
Cons: "Maybe"

Cons: "I made a small gift purchase in Queenstown and they were going to charge me $70 to put it under the plane. They could have easily put it in a small box, put it under the plane, and charge me $25 at the most for it. Instead I had to give it to the clerk at the counter because I only paid $20 for the item. I didn't mind having to put it under the plane but for $70?"

Pros: "Efficient. Friendly. On time."
Cons: "Lack of leg room like all airlines"

Cons: "Got charged 15$ per kilo for our bags even tho we couldn't check in online"

Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
