Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"

Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable enough even in the economy class. The crew is attentive. Entertainment is great, lots of movies and music."
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Kind and funny!"
Cons: "The weather, but pilots did great despite it."
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: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"
Cons: "We booked our tickets and chose our seats and nowhere did it warn or tell us that we were located in a ‘safety row’ where the arm rest would not fold up. So we could not stretch out during our 12 hr flight. This was the most uncomfortable experience I have ever had on the multiple trips I have done between USA and Australia or New Zealand. The seat ordering from the kitchen was rarely available, even after the flight attendants had finished food service and pick up. The flight attendants weren’t very friendly."
Cons: "For the $s paid for this flight the crew could be a little bit friendlier and having a smile on their face."
Pros: "The sleepers in business were perfectly flat. It's the best sleep I've had on a flight."
Cons: "I was not given a chance to make a seat assignment on the Alaska legs between Seattle and LA and ended up being stuck in a middle seat going both ways. There,was no option during booking to make a,seat selection. This was also true for the LA to Auckland outbound leg. This is an area needing improvenent."
Pros: "Great crew.and service."
Pros: "My first long flight. Although long flights can be difficult, my experience was great. The staff was nice and friendly. The flight was enjoyable I liked the food and drink service. Good selection of music, movies, as well as other information provided, such as information about place to be visited. I was traveling with two friends, we did not sit together, but we were able to message each other via the texting service on the screen, that was awesome!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, bathrooms were good."
Cons: "Food was not good. No vegetable choice unless you had prearranged. Breakfast was just ok."
Pros: "After 3 flights on Air NZ we were very impressed by their service. Comfortable seats, great inflight entertainment system, decent food and very friendly cabin staff."
Cons: "We had 2 middle seats, which was less comfortable, but it was my fault for not choosing seats earlier."
Cons: "Unlike other international flights, Air New Zealand only allows 1 check in luggage per person instead of 2. Most other international airlines allow 2 check in luggage. But otherwise it was good and the service was ok, not as much food selection as other airlines but the crew are very nice and the airline is very clean."
Pros: "I was feeling motion sick and several flight attendants went out of their way to help me feel better. I wish I knew their names as I would specifically mention them, but I really appreciate everything they did for me during that time."
Cons: "Allow passengers to choose if they want a vegetarian meal."
Pros: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."
Pros: "Overall service, food quality vs US airlines, selection and ease of use of entertainment system."
Cons: "I purchased a $50 select economy upgrade which should have included priority boarding but it did not. That’s on the airline though, not Kayak. The airline also did not reply to an enquirer submitted weeks before the flight. Seat leg space was restricted more than average due to large black blocks in addition to the metal seat frames. Maybe that’s due to the enhanced entertainment and power outlets so can’t say it’s a complete negative."
Pros: "Two toilets in Premium Economy, comfortable seat with blanket, headphones, and large pillow"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "All the attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The hand cream and lip balm were excessively scented. I could tell when anyone in the cabin used it. The food was a little too fussy for my taste with trying to put 12 ingredients in one chicken dish."
Pros: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"
Pros: "The crew, food, entertainment made the flight comfortable"
Cons: "I felt I was gouged on my 2nd bag fee with an outrageous cost of $200.00 aud or $150.00US. It only weighed 20lbs. as well."
Pros: "Great staff and crew. Some of the best!"
Cons: "No Wi-fi? WTF? It's 2017, almost 2018! How is it that an international airline does not have Wi-fi? Extremely disappointed, as I didn't find out until I boarded the flight. Get Wi-fi ASAP."
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: "Wasn't too cold. Entertainment was good, needed more newer show/ movie options,"
Cons: "The touch screen wasn't working and was very slow, seats weren't comfy, felt like we were all squished together."
Cons: "Not enough room"
Pros: "I had always had a pleasant time with this airline but this 2nd longer flight wasn't it's best! I still have good opinions about this airline and plan on using it in the future."
Cons: "My neighbor in a 4 seat section kept elbowing me. Seats seemed to be too close to each other and for people who aren't average weight it is hard for them to stay within their given space. Eating meals was difficult because some people use their elbows all over the place."
Pros: "We upgraded to premium economy, and Tony was very attentive and took great care of us!"
Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"
Pros: "Plenty of movies. Tight legroom and harder to get into seats with pillows, headsets and blankets on seats and the plastic bags make them slip everywhere.. Maybe pass them out after everyone had boarded."
Cons: "See above. Plus it was a rough turbulent flight."
Pros: "Good Service"
Cons: "I payed $50.00 USD on a seat so I would have a bigger seat. However, when I got into the plane, the lady that was going to be seating next to me asked me if I could change my seat with her husband; which was a regular seat. In order to avoid an awkward 12 hour flight, I agreed to change my bigger seat for a smaller seat. I felt disappointment that Air New Zealand separates parties and leaves room for uncomfortable situations. I really did not know what to do in this scenario, I paid for that seat but was in a way forced to give it a away without any refund in order to avoid 12 hours seating with some stranger's wife."
Pros: "Tons of free movies."
Cons: "As a vegan I didnt think the food was great. But they did have food for me to eat so that was nice."
Pros: "Check in process was very good"
Cons: "Staff is not necessarily as attentive to individual needs as they could be. Many oversights in service. Also, the sound on my video speakers was distorted (loud screeching) that ruled out any chance to watch any movies on this long flight."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "Flight was great, happy to be back home! Movies were awesome to watch on board, good selection!"
Pros: "I dreaded 14 hours on a plane but Air New Zealand made the trip very comfortable. The meals were delicious and staff responsiveness was great. I got lucky and didn't even have anyone sitting beside me. Great experience from every angle."
Pros: "Air New Zealand may be one of the best airlines I've ever flown. Fantastic service and great flight!"
Pros: "Comfortable Premium Economy seating is well worth the cost for such a long flight. Food was excellent and crew was very attentive. Entertainment system was very limited and clunky to use. The safety briefing is the most entertaining in the industry. Would readily choose New Zealand Air again."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The service and entertainment. And blankets to keep you warm because it does get cold on the plane."
Cons: "Small seats, no room."
Pros: "Agents were helpful once entering the plane. They take the time to greet us, look at our ticket and direct us which row to take. Very helpful."
Cons: "Space is a factor based on the price. It is such a long flight and room for our feet or even a foot stool type would be nice to have."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats were extremely narrow. The stewards were un-attending The LA airport area was the pits, there are no one to help with your bags. I had my husband in a wheelchair and there was no one to help me with our bags! The security at LAX was joking and laughing amongst themselves and did not even look at us when they let us back into LA. We landed way far away from the building and I had to take my husband in a wheel chair and my hand luggage into a buss before we got into a building and we were the last ones to arrive, Vicky"
Pros: "Very complete selection of entertainment option, other than wireless."
Cons: "The seats have been narrowed even more. Didn't think it was possible. Had a self-contained seat and lost even more inches."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I will not use kayak again, because they used this terrible gouging airline that we did not know we were using for our flight. We had to change the flight date of our sons trip and they wanted to charge us $350 to change the flight and then with the difference in the flight it was gonna cost us $530 on top of that. The total for our flight was going to cost us $880! We found a brand-new flight with another company for $670! It is disgraceful! I will never use KAYAK because they used this airline and they don't let you know it! we never got our money back for the flight we did not use. It was a hard lesson learned. Whole thing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like!"
Pros: "Lots of selections"
Cons: "Adult movies with many sexual scenes need to be avoided in the aircrafts! Children behind or sitting the next roll also watched it! Very concerned if I should book your airline with my 2 teenagers in the future..."
Pros: "Air NZ is the best Airline."
Cons: "I had selected an aisle seat. But on the plane, the configuration of seats was different and it wasnt an aisle seat. Since its a seriously long flight, I was very upset that my selection had not been honored."
Pros: "The crew was Ok, friendly but not overly friendly. Just professional."
Cons: "Its just a long flight and economy is just not comfortable to sleep in. Get business."
Pros: "Everything was good except"
Cons: "Seats were very crowded. Small walkway- difficult to get through with carry on baggage, difficult to pass, when attendants were helping and bent over to hand drink their body/ behinds were bumping into me"
Cons: "Plane had no fuel so we had to wait 2 hours For it to refuel elsewhere. Then the crew ran overtime so we had to wait 3.5 hours for a new crew. From exactly where the plane had refuelled"
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Pros: "crew was nice, but did not come around enough to pick up trash."
Cons: "entertainment system didn't work, food was mediocre"
Pros: "I like the ability to have an upgraded seat, and also the staff is very kind and warm"
Cons: "They really need to try and put a passengers with small children or infants in one part of the plane. These parents aren’t held to any modicum of manners or basic respect for the other passengers around them. If I say something I’m the awful person, when I paid the same amount if not more than that awful child who kicked the back of seat and screamed the whole 5 hrs home. I’m not talking new parents navigating a baby and crying, that’s gonna happen. I am talking about the hideous humans who have decide to have children and check out on being a parent. It’s effing miserable."
Cons: "Entertainment and seats"
Cons: "The food could have been better, but I think Hawaiian Airlines is the only domestic carrier on domestic flights that offers a meal at no charge. So I can't really complain."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Customer Affairs Office needs to understand their role or they should eliminate it as it reflects poorly on the company. In short, they suck."
Pros: "Kind crew Left late but made up time in the air"
Cons: "Very crammed seats No entertainment even though I called and asked before the flight and was told there was"
Pros: "One crew member went above and beyond and took my lei to keep it cool so it wouldn't ruin through out the flight."
Cons: "On our trip to Hawaii, our plane was delayed 3 times and ultimately canceled. We had to go with another airline to get to Hawaii the same day. On the way back, our trip was delayed again an hour."
Pros: "The boarding process and crew were great. The free food was a great surprise, I had brought food onboard. It was the first time flying Hawaiia so I was not current on amenities."
Cons: "It would be nice to know before boarding the flight that ALL the movies on the app had to be paid for if you wanted to watch. The movie choices were very limited."
Pros: "The aircraft was relatively new (an A321 Neo), the seats were comfortable, and the crew was great."
Cons: "My wife and I had our seats changed by the airline after we had already made seat assignments, so we were not together on either of the round trip flight to Kauai from Los Angeles. Flights were both full so no way to change seats once at the airport. Aircraft did not change from when we booked our flight and made seat assignments, to the day of the flights. The food served was okay, but I don't eat carbos and all the food served was full of carbos. I choose to not utilize a smart phone, or other electronic devices, and the plane had no entertainment services if you don't have a smart phone or pad."
Pros: "Beautiful plane in great condition. Very pleasant and very comfortable."
Cons: "For some reason, no entertainment (only paid, and using your own phone/tablet) and no meal. On the outgoing flight with the same company there was a meal provided. They treat the flight as a 'low cost', only - its a full cost flight. No option to select seats either. All in all - flight was great, but not good enough value for the cost."
Pros: "Comfort and complementary dinner and cocktails"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I wish the airline goes back to serving real meals for breakfasts and dinners on the longer flights like going to the islands & returning to mainland. We were expecting warm decent meals like what they use to serve in the past rather than snack type breakfast and sandwiches & chips for dinner, on coach with extended leg room. This is one of the enticing parts of flying this airline."
Pros: "The people working the flight were nice. They treated my luggage well, they didn’t event break a wheel! The people were really great"
Cons: "The food was horrible, like a dog barfed chicken into a sloppy joe and then they microwaved it in a bag and let it sit for a day. Cookies were surprisingly delicious by comparison. The TV monitor/screens had movies that were expensive, but also the subtitles didn’t work and the headphone jack was messed up so it was really hard to hear anything. It was kinda quiet and crackling. It wasn’t like that when I plugged it into my phone. The seats were so small that I ended up getting my headphones ripped up just trying to be considerate of other passengers. My flight back didn’t even have movie options. Just 6 hours of light turbulence tickling my sciatica to the soundtrack of multiple screaming children. My girlfriends family and she were several rows up, where I was supposed to be, but I didn’t get the seat I booked so I just stared at them from zone 4 like the pauper I am."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful. On my flight home from Lihue one of the young men (crew member ) was extremely helpful to a young mother with a baby who was having problems with her son , I know she appreciated his kind jester in trying to take the time to talk to the little boy and assured him everything was going to be ok if he would help his mom by behaving."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, the last two trips I have made, I had a delay , I'm glad I didn't have to catch a connecting flight."
Pros: "Complimentary sandwich was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Despite being a 5 hr long flight, there were no individual entertainment screens for seats. Plane was old."
Pros: "Good entertainment systems. Easy flying from Maui to Auckland."
Cons: "OMG the food. Were they serious? The Breakfast was the worst food Ive had on my 37 years on Planet Earth."
Pros: "Service was friendly"
Cons: "Hawaiian Airlines changed our seats both to and from Lihu'e. My wife and I were traveling with another couple. We booked our flights together and chose our seats so we could sit together. On both flights we were separated. Why give the purchaser an option to pick seats if the airlines changes them with no warning? Also, the in-flight entertainment was non-existent."
Pros: "Appreciated the friendly and kind staff members and crew. Also, we were able to catch a head-wind and arrived in LA about 15 minutes early. The skillfullness of the pilots in avoiding several spots of potential turbulance. Bags arrived promply and without incident. (Thank you!!) HA is generally so much more pleasant than nearly every other US airline; thank you so much!"
Cons: "The very crowded plane with virtually no empty seats... The fees for head-phone sets... The slow-response entertainment system for use by passengers... The limited choice of movies involving non-juvenile topics - would have appreciated at least 4 or 5 films to select from that involved some kind of sophistocated comedy, mixed with a touch of drama or high-quality story line. (Did select "The Big Sick" which was of very high calibre, but no other choices existed that were similar to this style blending comedy with deeper and reflective themes.) The small sizes of the snacks, which were actually very tasty (chicken teriyaki warm sandwich and potato chips)."
Pros: "Hawaiian Air crews deliver better service in a more professional manner than most others. We had a difficult group of passengers causing a delay upon boarding. The crew took care that well."
Cons: "Domestic air travel in the USA has generally lost it's way. The costomer experience can be negatively influenced at so many points during the average trip. On this flight, other passengers (one family) with disgusting manners, smelly carry on food and generally poor attitudes, made it a captive experience. The crew were the bright spot. An airline can't help that much but, can mitigate the damage and the employees did that. You have very good people."
Pros: "Food was not great but it is always nice to have a hot meal provided on the flight and I also appreciated the Maui Brewing beer they offer during beverage service."
Cons: "I was seated in the back row and found it difficult to rest/relax on this overnight flight from Auckland to Honolulu because the flight crew was in the back socializing very loudly to the point where it was unprofessional. I could tell that I was no the only guest annoyed by the noise.It was very inconsiderate and unprofessional to behave this way while on the job especially during the announcements that I couldn ot understand because of the talking behind me. I fly Hawaiian Airlines often and have never had this type of issue. I was surprised that none of the other crew members said anything to the noisy group of hosts/hostesses."
Cons: "No entertainment, I requested a soda to take meds with shortly after takeoff. Crew member said she’d brong it to me in a minute. About 1/2 hour later she passed my seat and I asked again and she said “as soon as I finish this”. She never came. After an hour, the regular drink art came."
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, so ended up having an entire row to ourselves. Was nice to be able to spread out."
Cons: "Crew member didn’t hear me clearly when I said I didn’t want ice in my drink, then was a little rude after he poured the drinks with ice, blaming me for not telling him before. It might have been my problem for not being more clear, but would feel better if the attendant wasn’t as rude."
Cons: "I didn't eat or feel drawn to any of the movies or entertainment offerings."
Pros: "Very good service."
Cons: "No food on the return flight."
Pros: "Smooth Flight, decent food."
Cons: "Takes a long time to get off the plane once it's landed. Maybe they need more than one exit - that's probably not realistic but you asked."
Pros: "The staff was awesome, i was really scared to be on a plane, but they took really good care of me. The food was awesome too."
Cons: "I really didn't enjoy the seats. It was very uncomfortable and the touch screens were so hard to control."
Pros: "That there were complimentary meals and drinks"
Cons: "The infotainment system was pay for tv and only 3 episodes per show were available. Also the seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "direct flight to Hawaii. Left and arrived on time"
Cons: "No space in seating, every thing costs on this trip, to include $10 to use a blanket, $4 to use ear buds. Any movie even old like Beatle juice for example was 7.99 per movie, tv shows were also 7.99. I have fly about every couple months both in USA and internationally, and all US carriers are by far the worse service."
Pros: "There was one stewardess that was very nice"
Cons: "Rude service, I have to pay for entertainment, which I never have to do with other airlines for a 6 hour flight. Food was terrible. No options in food. Immediately when the flight took off , they turned the air conditioner up so high and before they even served the drinks, they were selling blankets.. everything was a sells pitch .. I hate Hawaiian .."
Pros: "I enjoyed the food service."
Cons: "The plane landed late and then we drove around the tarmac for an hour! This was frustrating"
Pros: "The plane was nice and comfortable, the crew was also very nice."
Cons: "Our plane was 2 hours late leaving and we missed our flight in LA which delayed us getting home 8 hours. Long 2 days of travel. It was an overnight flight."
Pros: "The entire trip was smooth and easy, from check in at Honolulu airport to baggage claim at LAX, we had zero issues! That's a rarer and rarer thing these days. The flight crew were friendly and polite, the complimentary meal in coach was a pleasant surprise, and the A330-2 was smartly designed for relative comfort and accessibility."
Cons: "Would be great if there were SOME free television offerings, like Southwest Airlines does. I understand paying for the movies (although if you really wanted to stand out above the competition you could offer a select movie for free like in the old days), however the option to watch some satellite tv channels at no cost would be great. Also the nearest bathroom was out of order and that was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "Other than the IDIOT who was handeling board who had me standing over 50 minutes, I have had 7 knee surguries. No one could stop her all she wanted seating people by sections according to her"
Cons: "By the time I boarded I could hardly walk"
Pros: "Even though they didn't have hot water on the beverage cart, they brought a cup back to me after they finished serving."
Cons: "There were no food options for certain dietary restrictions/allergies (without wasting money/not eating parts of the food options)."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "The overhead light was left on way to long, which made it hard to go to sleep. I had also hoped for a snack of some kind before landing."
Cons: "Movies weren't working. Bought games but my screen broke or turned off after 30 min couldn't get it fixed or refunded. Whenever I asked staff a question they would answer in nods instead of talking to me. Made me not want to ask for anything or talk to them."
Pros: "Not much to like. A couple of the FAs were decent folks."
Cons: "Seven-hour delay due to mechanical failure. They finally found a new aircraft but one of the forward exit doors was inop so they had to rope off first and kick everyone in back to coach. This made a lot of people angry-- one so much so that he had to be ejected from the plane. This meant another hour of delay AFTER WE WERE ONBOARD. All the while, the only updates anyone got were along the lines of "There's a delay and we're working to remedy the situation." No explanation as to what was happening or when we would be taking off. Then, as if that wasn't enough, they announced that the flight crew was now over their legal limit for consecutive hours and they would have to find a new crew. I'm surprised there wasn't a full-on riot at this point. Everyone managed to remain calm, though, through the additional 1.5 hours we remained there waiting for the new crew-- with no compensation, no free drinks, not even WATER. Inexcusable, Hawaiian Air. You just lost a customer."
Pros: "Great staff and overall very enjoyable..."
Cons: "No entertainment.... really? You can't offer a movie or tv show for free?! That's really silly. Also, my bag got DESTROYED. Cracked, torn, wheels pulled off. Pretty ridiculious. Can't believe I had to pay to check my bag and now have to throw it out and buy a new one!"
Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."
Pros: "Crew were relatively nice until there were mass delays deboarding and they refused to keep us informed as to what was happening. Also, delays at the start (with no AC, so it was very hot in cabin)."
Cons: "I could not eat the food as there were eggs in pretty much all of it (I have an allergy), and I was given no other options, which is unacceptable, especially given that this was a long international flight. Wine was terribly sweet. Touch screen basically inoperative (very tiresome)."
Cons: "Disappointed that there was no meal on the late evening flight. Only a bag of snacks. Since we got a hot sandwich on the outbound flight from LAX to HNL, we expected something on the return flight!"
Pros: "The flight attendants allowed me to sit up front so I could run off the plan and make my connecting flight. If I was not in an atheletic person, I would have missed my flight."
Cons: "The delay and having to run like I wa back in high school running the mile."
Pros: "No food and uncomfortable flight"
Cons: "The flight with Jet blue to Los Angelos was so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Too strong a/c. So cold."
Pros: "Very courteous staff."
Pros: "loved the staff!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, food was provided, trash was quickly removed, the attendants were kind and accommodating. It was one of the best flights I have taken recently."
Pros: "Nothing- 4 hour delay on the Tarmac and they did nothing to advocate for us getting off the plane or keeping us updated."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Pros: "The distance between the seats in economy is inhumane."
Pros: "premium economy! excellent service in LAX by QF ground staff on transfer"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful, and the food options for vegetarians were great, and the entertainment selection was great."
Cons: "My seat did not recline, but I told a flight attendant and I was able to get a better seat."
Pros: "movie selection was good"
Cons: "air was stale, food was just okay"
Pros: "It's a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"
Pros: "Slightly wider seats"
Pros: "Not a lot to like. Some flight attendants were nice. Others not so much."
Cons: "Filthy toilets at the beginning of the flight. If they were ever cleaned they didn’t get behind the toilet or the walls. The walls stained with something dripping. Paint peeling in toilet. No room at all. I am small and with seat in front pushed back I couldn’t move."
Pros: "Generous & kind flight crew, lots of in-flight entertainment, and a smooth and timely flight."
Cons: "Not being able to web check in causes stress pre-flight."
Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."
Pros: "Crew member Trevor was funny and the perfect host. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable and there is no privacy ... worst Business class facilities I’ve ever experienced. Seriously substandard might as well fly economy or better still use a different airline."
Pros: "We sat on the runway for an hour. The pilot communicated frequently about the delay. Efforts were made to connect passengers to their missed connections."
Cons: "Several of the flight attendants were rude. The food was not good. I should have known since the flight attendant serving me had not tried any of the options and couldn't recommend any to me. The plane does not have enough bathrooms for the number of passengers."
Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"
Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."
Pros: "The way your seats reclined: back/head your typical recline but add your seats bottom sliding forward. Best sleep I have ever had while in International economy. Sadly our plane to Australia from Los Angeles did not have the same seats. Entertainment selection excellent ! Great line up of brand new and older movies. I was able to use my noise cancelling headphones in your jack which was a big plus."
Cons: "Paying an extra $30-35 just to choose a seat. Enjoyed sitting in the back of the plane however meal selection was terrible as the front of the plane always fed first so by the one it was our turn there was only one option - terrible “southern chicken” Or the Greek Inlet Which was just ok."
Pros: "Food on Qantas is better than domestic U.S. carriers and it's nice to still experience good service."
Cons: "It is frustrating that most airlines never leave on time anymore. They should be required to pay each passenger $50 for every 15 minutes they are late. It's also terrible that seats have become so cramped. My biggest fear is to drop something at my feet because then I can never reach it. Sigh."
Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "Terrible procedures in Sidney and Los-Angeles with uncertainty, broken schedule , chaos and wasting passengers' time."
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."
Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"
Pros: "Was able to quickly check in and get through security. The front counter staff were friendly and efficient. Minimal waiting to board."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. My seat was sticky and covered in what appeared to be food of some sort. Flight attendant wiped it off, but it wasn't clean by any means. The seat belts were twisted and had food and crud stuck to them. When I changed my clothes the next day, there was food and stains on my black pants from where I sat on the dirty seats."
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."
Pros: "Great selection of movies, i liked that the economy cabin at the back of the top floor of the a380 was more personal than a larger economy cabin. Crew were happy to serve me drinks throughout the flight after the halfway point when i started drinking"
Cons: "I would love love love to see airlines recycling the majority of the waste generated during flight..."
Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"
Cons: "Was seated in the center section and after getting settled and buckled in I kept smelling vomit and realized the seatbelt had dried vomit all over it. I couldn't get the flight attendant to help and finally got their attention and was told they couldn't do anything until after we were in the air. I was moved away from my family to another center seat. The flight had many open seats and we should have been kept together."
Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"
Pros: "Need new planes"
Cons: "Qantas didn't help at all with my missed domestic connection between LAX and ATL. Nothing."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was packed full of recent big movies. I was travelling with my partner on separate tickets due to us having different final destinations. The Qantas staff was able to re-arrange our seats together for the long flight over the Pacific. We also got to celebrate New Year's twice, since we crossed the International Dateline."
Cons: "I was not a fan of the A380 prior to my flight, and was even less of a fan after. The boarding in Melbourne was chaotic- for some unexplained reason, Qantas felt the need to quarantine the seating area around the gate. This led to a minor stampede as all 5,000 passengers thought the flight was boarding. The Qantas staff at Melbourne, from the check-in desks, to the boarding crew were all apparently over-whelmed. It wasn't any better upon arrival at LAX- the baggage area was chaos as our arrival apparently caught the LAX baggage handlers by surprise. I had a four-hour layover in LAX, yet still managed to miss my connecting flight after an excessive delay getting our checked bags, the line through customs, and rechecking in through the TSA - and that was WITH an expedited screening pass."
Cons: "The food was terrible. By the time the meal cart came to ou row, all the got meals was out and we have no choice and was served with the cold ham salad that looks like left overs, both my son and I lost our appetite looking at it. The crew didn't apologize and gave the impression that we either take it or too bad. Won't be recommending this airline."
Pros: "They went above and beyond"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew was good"
Cons: "I've flown a lot over the years and been on some long flights but this was beyond bad as far as comfort. When the people in front of us layed their seats down we could not even move and when meals were served the flight attendants had to ask the passengers in front of us to please put their seats up so that they could serve us food. Then when the service was over the people layed their seats right down...they were literally in our laps."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay for food in American Airlines codeshare flight."
Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."
Cons: "The entertainment screen stopped working twice and I had to ask the crew to fix it for me twice. They were helpful and fixed it, but it was a bit of a hassle."
Cons: "Because of an equipment problem, we missed our connection. Qantas booked us on an American Airline flight six hours later for the LAX to JFK segment. It was a much smaller plan, no food included, and the seats we paid for were not provided."
Pros: "Paying for extra leg room was the best investment. We felt like we were in business class (although haven't ever travelled it). The crew were sensational, obliging, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "We had to collect our luggage in Los Angeles and then re-lodge it for the New York leg of our flights. It was a nuisance but Qantas staff did everything in their power to make it as smooth as possible."
Pros: "The crew manager worked tirelessly to move rows of passengers to other seats because the entertainment system didn't work for a bank of passengers on the long haul flight."
Cons: "Our entertainment system didn't work and we had to split up to move seats."
Pros: "Great service as always!"
Pros: "check in, boarding, and baggage claim was relatively quick"
Cons: "online check in did not work at 9pm before the flight- i was unable to select a seat woman at the check in counter was not friendly. i also asked if it was possible to have a window seat and she said " i dont think there are any available" *prints boarding pass* rather than "let me check" *checks seats* food options were limited- in past experiences with qantas i wouldve assumed meal was chicken or beef and a vegetarian option. this flight was fish pork or beef. fish and pork are polarizing proteins for many people. fish is also malodorous."
Pros: "Leg room plus space between window and aisle seat"
Pros: "Food is good which is being served hot , even the bread is being served hot . The food is of the right portion .The crew is doing what they need to do for the passengers , quiet efficient , smile quite a lot thus making them feel more comfortable . The toilets are being kept clean . Keep it up !"
Pros: "The inflight service was very friendly. Flight was good, smooth."
Cons: "Flight late arriving c. 30 mins. Could not get the entertainment working on a 5+ hour flight."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good, that was about it."
Cons: "Service was so poor. Being in economy they treated you like you were more of a nuisance to them then a customer. Got one drink served to me, 3 hours in, on a 14 hour flight. Our first meal was 3 hours in, and was served 30 min after the people next to me. Trash and dishes were not picked up and when we asked attendant he asked us to bring them to the cabin ourselves! after sitting with them in front of us for an hour after dinner. Window screens left up during flight omitting sun glare making It hard to sleep. been making the LAX to Brisbane or Sydney flight to 8 years now, Qantas has progressively got worse while Virgin customer service remains as a high standard. Looks like sales on Qantas will no longer entice me, I'll be sticking with virgin"
Pros: "Great price Service was great Updated on everything from gate change to flight on timen"
Cons: "Didn't book through Kayak on my previous flights"
Pros: "Excellent service in every aspect on the Qantas flight! The time on board was just over three hours, and still we received a full meal, blankets and headphones, and had personal tv screens where it was possible to watch the latest movies. Well done!"
Cons: "The headphones were bad quality, it was difficult to understand what was being said in the movie."
Pros: "The flight was on time and very comfortable with tons of food and snacks and great entertainment options."
Cons: "It was hot, again. Really hot. The movies weren’t different and I’d watched the ones I wanted to see on the way to Paris. The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "The leg room and the recline was the best I’ve had in a budget economy class, and I was not expecting a snack and two full meals. They also gave each of us a flower when boarding. It was a charming touch."
Pros: "The airconditioned lounge and shower for business class after sweating in line through security. Lay flat seats."
Cons: "Headsets had a weird jack and weren’t noise cancelling, wish it left a couple hours earlier, and for some reason, my feet kept bottoming out in the footwell but I wasn’t fully reckoned."
Pros: "Amazing, brand new plane. State of the art business class seats. Nice crew"
Pros: "Totally reasonably way to fly to tahiti. It seems like a well run airline."
Pros: "Liked the tahitian atmosphere on the plane."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and hurt my back."
Cons: "Very tight seating-uncomfortable. Crew was not very friendly"
Pros: "Super Easy"
Cons: "There were not gluten free options for my boyfriend who has a gluten allergy and we put in the gluten free option when asked on the initial questionnaire. My son got food poisoning from the food."
Pros: "They provide blankets, eye patches for sleep, ear buds, and back pillows."
Cons: "The head phones aux jack for my seat didn’t work and couldn’t hear the movie. The seats caused aches and no leg room. Lack of air flow. Food wasn’t good either meal I didn’t eat. Economy for 8.5 hours isn’t a nice trip"
Cons: "Staff was not attentive in my cabin. English translation of instructions difficult to understand. Food was terrible. Bread was hard. Meal was inedible and not anything resembling breakfast. Cabin was freezing."
Pros: "Boarding process was great and ample overhead room for baggage."
Cons: "The attendants were cold. The hot entrees were bad; the rest of the food tray was good. Half the bathrooms were inoperable due to mechanical issues."
Pros: "Safe arrival"
Cons: "40 minutes late boarding AFTER calling people to board; no apologies or explanations offered. Then a hot cabin, followed much later by lousy food. Most uncomfortable Airbus seats I've ever known. A few minutes of extreme turbulence was a bonus."
Pros: "Faa’A International Airport is NOT air conditioned and there can be long lines in the check-in counter for economy class. If you are flying Business Class, the VIP Lounge is a must. It is the only air conditioned room at the airport."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Pros: "seat in business class was fair to poor- unable to fully recline\ food was poor"
Cons: "seating and food"
Cons: "Three and a half hour delay (while lying to us about why it was delayed) missed my connecting and got to sleep in an airport with no accommodation or recompense on either end. "Island Time" not acceptable for air travel."
Pros: "great entertainment options"
Cons: "horrid food"
Pros: "great options for entertainment."
Cons: "The plane food was horrible."
Cons: "For the crazy price and booking the tickets together, I have never not sat next to the person you booked with. The airline sat us in middle seats 4 rows away from each other (there was no reason for it since we both had single people on the aisles next to us). Really ruined the trip and made nothing about the flight worth commenting on. I won't ever fly this airline again."
Pros: "I got I'll on the flight and the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "I really don't know as besides being sick I tried to get as much sleep as I could."
Pros: "N/C for food, head sets and in flight movies. Crew was very professional and pilot was excellent. I liked that they boarded the plane back to front. Makes more sense. Service was excellent!"
Cons: "Hard to board when everyone lines up and doesn't get out of the way for those to board whose seat numbers were called. The attendant started calling the next numbers before the first group had a chance to get through all the people waiting! You couldn't push thru the crowd because others in front of you were in the same predicament. People were asked to stay in their seats until their numbers were called but they didn't listen. We were an hour late taking off. Food was not very good and I'm not a picky eater. Rolls were hard as a rock and The eggs were uneatable. The lady in front of me reclined her seat all the way back and slept the whole flight so I was uncomfortable the whole way home and couldn't sleep. Her seat was resting on my knees. Very hard to eat off a tilted tray table. Seats very close together so hard to get to the remote."
Pros: "Being a redeye flight, they kept the plane dark for about 4 hours & didn't disturb us. The crew was friendly & professional."
Cons: "The terminal is not air-conditioned, just ceiling fans, so waiting to board was uncomfortable. We had no ability to select our seats so we had to take what they gave us."
Pros: "Frendly crew, drinks unlimited, and lovely time overall"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Free movies rocks. Hawaiian air charges for them. Very good food"
Pros: "I liked getting a pillow and blanket. Movie selection was good but could be a little better."
Cons: "The food selection was "meh." I am a vegetarian and I wish I was told during booking to request a veggie meal. I would have given an "excellent" score with vegetarian options readily available and better movies."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Staff was VERY rude, seats are uncomfortable. Inside the plane is FREEZING cold. Food was ok-"
Pros: "Great service, from booking seat assignment to meals, the staff could not have been better,"
Pros: "Plentiful blankets, pillow, headphones and earplugs. Food and drink readily available."
Cons: "Seats are too small/narrow with little leg room for a 6' person. I was seated in 45A, the last row against the window. The seat backs do not recline yet, the seats in front of us so so, we end up with the guy ahead of my in my lap with zero leg room as my knees were pressed down by the reclined passenger in front of me. Very uncomfortable to not be able to move for 8 hours!!!!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "The seat was uncomfortable. The staff was not friendly. They were serving food and did not let me pass to get back to my seat. And they did not bother to leave any food for me. The movie selection was limited."
Cons: "It had to be the worse experience ever."
Pros: "The price was good, the service was excellent. The food was good and generous. We didn't have to wait in any lines for getting our boarding pass or checking bags. It was a very quick process. The entertainment was good but I have had a few more selections from other carriers. It was certainly enough to keep one occupied."
Cons: "Can't think of any negatives."
Pros: "Excellent staff service at the airport and short lines. The seat leg space is ample and seats are comfortable with good amenities provided including blanket, sleep mask, ear buds, and headphones."
Cons: "Frequent delays in boarding and taking off. No convenient way to reserve seat preferences online"
Pros: "This is a direct flight from Paris to LA so you don't have to pick up your luggage to go through customs when you go back to the US. You save a lot of time! I had 2 seats for myself. The cabin looks very attractive because of its colors. The Tahitian music is relaxing. It is also nice to see the crew with a Tahitian outfit, Tahitian pearls... You kind of travel without going to Tahiti! The crew is always very pleasant. The food is better than with any American airline."
Cons: "No choice for the meal. They had run out of one dish..."
Pros: "The plane was on time."
Cons: "I did not like the schedule. Leaving by 7 in the evening would permit many more connecting flights upon arrival in LA. Leaving Papeete at midnight wss exhausting. There were a lot of empty spaces but when we were assigned seats, we were not asked if we would like a place to stretch out (which we would have!)"
Pros: "Lots of space in economy, food was terrific and crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Passengers perhaps aren't accustomed to wearing deoderant... stinky!"
Pros: "They were able to secure our connecting flight at the check in gate which was nice, the tv entertainment was excellent service was attentive."
Cons: "The flight had been delayed over an hour yet still showed as on-time at the airport and on kayak. Had we known ahead of time we could have adjusted our schedule."
Pros: "Colors and design are beautiful. Staff is courteous. Appreciate the extra giveaway bags. Food is nice and pretty decent. First flight to PPT was great. Returning flight to LAX was bad."
Cons: "In comparison to the flight we took from LAX to PPT, this plane was ancient, and the technology was really lackluster. The tv screens were super old and the quality was very bad. My screen was completely fuzzy and striated.. The movies froze continuously, and you didn't have control over when you could play something. The magazine guide to what was playing didn't match what was playing. You needed to use the airplane headphones with a double jack because the plane was so old, and the headphones were super uncomfortable to wear in comparison to my own personal headphones. I ended up using my own headphones, but that meant that I only had sound in one ear. There was no USB port to charge your phone. It was just very disappointing considering the airplane going to my destination was more state of the art and comfortable, and I was expecting the same going back. For an 8 hour red eye, I was counting on being able to watch good movies. I tried to watch three different movies and couldn't watch any of them through completion because they froze midway through at some point and never restarted. Most of the movies were in French too even though our destination was LAX. Super disappointing. Especially considering how expensive the flight was. Also on the flight to PPT, they even gave you a Tempur-pedic pillow for your back which was so helpful in terms of overnight comfort. There was nothing like that on this flight. Also there were no temperature controls and I had cold air blowing on me the whole flight that I could do nothing about. Lastly the food schedule was strange in that for a midnight flight, they kept you up for another 1-1.5 hours to do a light dinner service. The food is appreciated but I think going to sleep right away is way more important. Seats are super tight also. Thank you."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice and Lights turned off shortly after T/O to help people sleep, but not much else."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours--very hot waiting inTahiti airport, especially when original T/O time was 1 minute before midnight."
Pros: "Crew service was great- friendly."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. So much hardware underneath some there is compromised leg room. Terrible hot food- breakfast in particular."
Pros: "The flight personnel are very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "No seat assignment ahead of time is a terrible idea. There is a mad scramble at the airport to avoid middle seats. The check-in procedure in Papeete is primitive and requires waiting on line for an inordinate amount of time. The food on board was terrible. The omelette tasted like cardboard Movie and TV selection were poor"
Pros: "My bag was destroyed, and I was told I had to check my back pack in which was BS n was charged $100 to check it in... getting in contact with customer service about the issue is impossible. The crews customer service was satisfactory, you can tell they don't want to be there. I will never fly them again."
Cons: "It got me to my destination in peace."
Pros: "The seat I was in wasn't as crowded in last row center. So I had some recline space to kick back."
Cons: "Screaming baby and sick baby right next to me both flights but can't do anything about that."
Pros: "According to our reservation we had seat assignments (not marked seat requested) but when we checked in they assigned us seats in the back of the plane. When we showed theconfirmation and seat assignments they checked and said a family with children has priority so they gave our 2 seats to them. However when we got on the plane we saw that it was not a family but 2 separate individuals. Not sure why they got our seats but it obviously was not because of a child. Another flight with them several days earlier we also got our seats reassigned but the flight confirmation on that leg said seats requested so when they reassigned us we could justify the airline thought that request is different than assigned."
Pros: "The pillows, blankets, socks, eye mask and head phone were all set out. No need to ask. I liked that there were drinks and snacks available thus eliminating the flight staff fr hauling carts up & down the isles allowing for more rest on the plane."
Cons: "There was no soap in the bathroom the entire flight. Some attention needs to be paid to the cup holders. There is lots of dirt there. The planes carpet was worn out. Time for a face lift."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Too hot Food was awful Delayed on both ends"
Pros: "Crew, cleanliness."
Cons: "1 our sears were change from 2 aisles to the last 2 seats of the airplane without the checkin counter informing us. These seats didn't recline. 2 food was much below average. 3 my tv screen was very blurry"
Pros: "I love everything with Air Tahiti Nui."
Cons: "The agent at the counter was unpleasant. I had the impression that I bothered her"
Pros: "Pros: good selection of free movies during inflight, usb chargers, nice staff, large overhead bins, 2-4-2 seats great for couples"
Cons: "No online check in or seat selection (come on, it's 2016)! Disorganized boarding process, seats are very small and uncomfortable for 8hr flights, no individual AC Control. Food is not even discernible as to what you're attempting to eat. It's the type of food comedians used to make jokes about. Planes are outdated and need upgrades"
Pros: "Friendly attendants; a lot of service available."
Cons: "Movie selection was minimal and mostly outdated; food was small portions and less than interesting choices."
Cons: "The ticketing experience almost cost me missing my connection. I did not get my con# or my second boarding pass so after customs I was forced to go back out and wait for a bus to get to a different terminal. I waited 30 min. Very poor handling."
Pros: "The plane was new and clean. The crew was so friendly and welcoming. Anything we needed on our flight they were more than happy to oblige and always did it with a smile"
Pros: "We boarded and left on time, the service was good."
Cons: "The picture on the screen for the movie was very poor, although the selection of movies was really good."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were really limited. Movie options were mostly older movies."
Pros: "Some crew members are excellent and some are flat."
Cons: "Food is kind of bad"
Pros: "Crew great. Seat was a major let down, too small."
Cons: "Just the seats really."
Cons: "Nice crew. Newer airplane"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "I arrived in transit from another flight, no representation to make check in. I needed to wait for gate to open before I could check in. then there was no time for the airline to recover my Bag. Do no us this airline in transit"
Pros: "I was excited to come back to the USA after a long vacation. When we arrived at the airport, the security started asking me questions immediately even before I checked in. They demanded I show them the ticket before it was even printed. When I explained that I was trying to check-in for the first time. They told me I was going to be reviewed upstairs and put a sticker in my passport. I proceeded to check in and just walked thru the normal security measures. After scanning my bags in security, I discovered there was no security meeting and proceeded to my gate. After the gate, everyone in line was subjected to a second security screen. This was a manual search and all articles were removed and repacked again. Then we proceeded to the plane entry where everyone needed to verify passport and ticket again. Later in the flight, I was having indigestion problem from my documented medical acid reflux problem and asked for a cup of water. He said sure and walked away. He never came back again.10 minutes later, I pressed the attendant call button again. 10 minutes later and no one came over. 15 minutes after that Albert came back over and said, "I see you have your call light on, please put your seat back up again." I can complied and he immediately turned off the light and walked away. 10 minutes later, Albert came by with the water cart and parked it right behind my seat. He proceeded to hand out water to everyone behind my seat. 30 minutes later the water cart arrived and I finally received my water (75 minutes after I asked!) Thanks Albert, I'll be following up with your management to see that disciplinary action is taken."
Cons: "See above. The above problem caused me discomfort, pain, stress."
Pros: "Ilana, the attendant at the check in was so amazing!!! She went out of her way to find our friend a seat close to us. We just loved everything and everyone about Fiji airways. THANK YOU!!"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "Breakfast was pretty average"
Pros: "Fantastic crew on board. Great service. Food left a bit to be desired. Entertainment a bit dated but great value for money & extremely punctual"
Pros: "Food, comfort & on board entertainment not the best but for the price of the flight it was well worth it. The flight crew and those on the ground in Nadi were amazing. Fantastic service all round. Don't forget to use the Premier Lounge in Nadi if you're there for a few hours. FJ$100 for full lounge access. It was an absolute pleasure. Best way to get to the USA from NZ."
Pros: "Nike complaints good food everything was on time"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "We did not get any notice as we were in the flight from figi! When we arrived we were just told flight has been cancelled and we should make our own hotel arrangement as next available flight is tomorrow"
Pros: "Didn't like anything, meal service was terrible"
Cons: "Never liked anything and will make sure not to take that flight ever again"
Cons: "IF it weren’t for the freezing cabin temp, I wouldn’t have needed. blanket that smelled like everyone’s feet had been wrapped in it. The breakfast was lukewarm, and some parts were even still cold that should hve been hot."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job."
Cons: "Security at Fiji was rude and redundant. Never have I had my bags searched 5 times before boarding a plane."
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food"
Cons: "Very limited leg room"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Liked seats, leg room, customer service and TV."
Cons: "It was freezing cold during the 10 hour flight !!!!"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic,,,to being on tine, to boarding and to service thru out the flight. Five star airline!"
Pros: "Had my backpack searched 4 times....one on the walkway on a folding table they set up...as I unhooked my bag (due to them breaking the two zippers in an earlier search) i asked what they were searching for and she saod "we search all American's bags" I said "just Americans?" she responded "Indians too"...then said "go ahead" after I mentioned the zipper issue.....destroyed any chance this would be an enjoyable flight or that I would ever return to Fiji, shame beautiful islands."
Cons: "Fiji airways lost about a third of the baggage on our flight and no representatives would give us any information. Then when we were sent to file a claim for lost luggage, no one was at the office for another hour. While I understand things happen, the way that they handled this situation was completely awful."
Cons: "Curry, breakfast sausage, amount of leg room."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and efficient. it was a pleasure to fly with them."
Cons: "The entertainment system had EXACTLY the same movies/shows we had on the flight over. Since we flew like 14 hours, we saw everything we wanted to see the 1st time. Maybe offer different choices on southbound and northbound itineraries."
Cons: "The seat were not that comfortable!"
Pros: "We got sone roomy seats it was nice"
Pros: "As always, the crew was great. The friendliest in the sky."
Cons: "The food options were less than stellar, but still ok."
Pros: "Staff and food were great, the flight was also very smooth. I would definitely still fly with Fiji airways, I think the delay just made everything seems worse."
Cons: "We were delayed over 3 hours. The intercom didn't work very well and the entertainment system was pretty much out of order. Also one of the toilet doors wouldn't lock."
Cons: "The food,rude staf ,small and uncomfortable seats,outdated entertainment system. A staff member had the nerve to tell me to let a first class customer go before me to the restroom (although I was in line to use my assigned restroom) because “he was first class and his assigned restroom was occupied.“"
Pros: "The landing at LAX was the best landing I experienced in years (I make about 60 flights/year). Cabin crew (like all Fijians) was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "For your very long flights better seating in the economy (something like BA Economy +) would be very much appreciated, even if the cost of the flight was higher. Otherwise the only option is to fly business class, which is more than 3x costlier."
Pros: "I really appreciated how the crew enforced window shades down for the majority of the flight. It really helped me sleep like I was hoping to so that I can be better adjusted to the time change and reduce jet lag."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I like the friendly service, the food is good and.they are very accommodating"
Cons: "The air conditioning is quite extensive so it is rather freezing. And the boarding seems very disorganized"
Cons: "No free entertainment, no food, unfriendly staff"
Pros: "Movie Selection was great"
Cons: "Boarding was a disorganized mess. Different groups in lines and no clear announcement. Food was plastic, even in Business, to the point that I just stopped and snacked on breakfast bars. Crew was uninspired, at best. Lots of shoulder shrugging during any discussion on issues. One even complained about the flight length (we were not delayed). Landed and waited for 10 minutes for jetway to a bus then a 10 minute ride to customs. Good thing they are a near monopoly."
Pros: "Excellent service from crew members. Genuine Fiji hospitality"
Cons: "Angled seats and limited IFE"
Pros: "Good movie selection. Cozy blankets (I'd love to buy one). Overall nice facilities. Smooth flight most of the way through."
Cons: "The flight was unusually warm. Other passengers asked the A/C be turned up but I didn't notice much difference after. The food selection was poor compared to the usual offerings I've seen with Fiji Airways. Dinner's side dishes were a hard roll, chocolate coconut dessert thing, and slice of cake. I was hoping for fruit and/or a salad. Food service was a little slow."
Pros: "As comfortable as an air flight can be. Friendly staff"
Pros: "Service provided was nothing less than desirable! They were great!"
Cons: "Boarding but that was due to the passengers. They don't listen"
Cons: "Boarding passes were not properly issued causing us to miss connection in LA. Flight left Nadi an hour late and although pilot indicated time would be made up, a 10+ hour flight resulted in less than 15 minutes of time made up. There is no possible reason a flight of this length could not make up the entire deficiency. We were told customer service reps would be available for passengers with tight connections. The customer service rep basically told us there was nothing she could do since we had to go thru customs. Will never fly this airline again. Fly to New Zealand previously on Air New Zealand and will use them in future. Price difference is not worth the service deficiencies."
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Leg room I paid for actually feels like room on my normal domestic flights. Need more 'leg room'. The food is so processed, it's beyond horrible. It was not edible to me. Boarding was chaotic and unorganized. Too cold on the plane."
Pros: "The meal was nice and the crew was pleasant. The flight was relatively smooth and there were no mix-up or problems with my luggage after the initial issue of having to pay to check in my carry-on due to being overweight."
Cons: "Cramped seating a bit much for such a long flight. The attendants were a little slow to pick up the rubbish from snacks, drinks and meals."
Pros: "Everything was great! Can't wait to go back."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The entertainment onboard"
Cons: "For the last couple of times I have used Fiji airways they are horrible. So strict! Would let me bring on grey goose which I bought a duty free in Los Angeles... They made me throw it out. Then they try to find any little thing wrong if it's with your bag, or carry whatever they try to make you pay for EVERYTHING! they were about to take away my 3 liquids which was less than 3 ounces because it wasn't in a plastic bag. ALL OF THE OTHER AIRLINES I HAVE USED HAVE NEVER DONE THIS! So I had to leave security go back outside. Come back in and get a plastic bag. If your bag is even a pound over weight, regardless of the fact if you really can't pay it. They won't be nice and help you out at all like some other airlines do for example Air New Zealand, AA, I could go on. Also, more than half of the staff are so condescending and rude, they like refuse to be nice and help out a passenger. If I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO AND AS A LAST RESORT then I would use Fiji. But for right now I will NEVER USE THEM. And I will suggest to my family and friends not to use the airline!!"
