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: "GREAT CREW, THEY DID THE BEST THEY COULD. VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL."
Cons: "Ground personnel could have been way more helpful. We came back from Europe and needed to take a domestic flight to Palmerston North.We had a lot of handluggage that was allowed in our international flight, we had purchased an extra suitcase ticket to make sure it wouldn't be a problem. The lady that helped us was not willing to include any more items than 1 small suitcase that weighed only 11 kg, but we had paid for 23 kg. When we wanted to board the airplane we were told we could only take 7 kg each. Which caused problems and stress that we couldn't use after a 40-hour flight from Europe. We discussed this with the lady at the counter which wasn't really helpful to start with, but eventually, she let us board the plane anyway after we had to explain our situation a few times, and after she asked us to weigh our extra items, which of course we're more than 7 kg. We were pleased that at least she let us board our plane in the end. Hopefully next time we won't encounter the same problems."
Pros: "Entertainment and board WiFi excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise, at least 200 m walking in the light rain, no previous warning."
Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Pros: "The crew was fine. the seats were not so comfortable in the economy."
Cons: "More comfortable seats."
Pros: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."
Cons: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."
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)."
Cons: "Great flight. Would have been nice to have on board wifi."
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."
The flight was delayed more than half an hour. The checked baggage took ages to be offloaded from the flight. It is also a "full service" flight for two hours over lunch time - served a crappy packet of biscuits for the inflight snack!
Just to be clear, this was NOT QANTAS. It was American Airlines. Never flying with them again.
I liked that the flight was operated by Emirates - very friendly staff, excellent service. Improvements - Boeing 777-300ER has very narrow seating compared to A380 which is much more comfortable for long flights.
Left rather late but did the best to make up time..
Cons: "Business does not have salad for everyone, I missed out salad"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "I was stopped at gate check in and taken to one side as the passport control had reported me for being intoxicated. I was injured in the armed forces and have a bit of a balance problem as lost most my hearing. I think drink alcohol any more. I asked for an aisle seat as I'm a big guy but was put on seat E next to a huge fat guy so was unable to sit properly. I couldn't get out of the seat once as he just slept and must of drempt as kept jumping and banging me. I had 1 meal on the over 13hr flight, which I couldn't eat properly as was unable to use the knife & fork due to the huge obese guy next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at all meal times. Which she didn't. So missed all the meals and tea/coffee. I was looking forward to the put a too. The London to Singapore flight was a total let down and I expected so much more from Quantus as they have always been top standard before. Overall disgusted in the service."
Pros: "Crew was great, I lucked out and got a whole row to myself and the entertainment was awesome."
Cons: "The food was just ok."
Pros: "The crew and the flight was good. The comfort of the seats were not, especially for a 14.5 hr flight"
Cons: "Just a little more space between the seats! You have to lean to the side, on the passenger seating next to you to try to pick something up or gather your belongings."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable experience ever! I was disturbed and/or woken up several times, during flight, by the flight attendances to place my seat in the upright position to accommodate the person sitting behind me who either wanted to drink alcoholic beverages every hour on the hour."
Pros: "The crew members were very helpful and the seating was very comfortable."
Cons: "I almost missed my return flight. It was a 9:40pm flight but the lady at the counter said that because i bought my ticket early, the flight time changed to 8:40pm because of time change. I think that needs to be factored in when selling tickets don't surprise customers."
Pros: "The flight was on time and arrived early with minimal difficulties"
Cons: "A crew member required several passengers including my girlfriend to check a bag that has routinely fit on all flights prior with even checking to see if it would actually fit at the gate"
Pros: "Everything was on time schedule and crew was nice."
Cons: "When engines starts we had very strong smell at back seats. It was gone however after a while, but I still remember how it was dis-comfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Seats were pretty bad. For a 10 hour flight, rigid, not reclining. Crew was curt. Not rude but curt. Food was terrible. Asked for Indian vegetarian meal - but got an Asian vegetarian meal that had no taste whatsoever. If they can do a Muslim meal, I don't know why they can't do Indian Vegetarian."
Pros: "Lufthansa did a great job in their customer service, their movie selection to include their technology available to each customer."
Cons: "the Seat was uncomfortable after an 8-hour flight. I have taken many 14+ hour flights to distant locations so I was surprised how quickly their seats caused discomfort."
Pros: "Everything was fine and normal except the crew."
Cons: "My flight was a later one in the evening but all the crew showed was that they were ready to go home."
Pros: "New flight reservation took us directly from Newark to Phoenix."
Cons: "This flight was totally cancelled. New reservation took us to Newark. Here the crowds were very long, baggage took over 20 min. to arrive, missed our connecting flight and had to wait 4 more hours for next flight. The flight out of Newark was held on the tarmac for 40 min."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew. Short, smooth flight."
Cons: "Bit of a delay, no entertainment due to technical difficulties. No forewarning of the technical difficulties until after we were on board the flight. A gate announcement would have allowed time to find a movie on Amazon, or some other platform for the flight."
Pros: "The flight’s crew was very efficient, and the flight arrival and departure was close to what was promised."
Cons: "The check-in was done by machine and the ticketing crew didn’t mention that the luggage was going directly to destination nor was my gate info for the second leg of my journey printed on my ticket. You’d figure United would know this info a few hours prior to departure."
Pros: "The 787 dreamliner was such a fantastic aircraft, one of the best aircraft I've flown across the Pacific. Despite being delayed, the flight crew was so accommodating and helpful with getting us to our destination quickly and safely. I hope to fly this route again soon"
Pros: "I finally got to Portland."
Cons: "The plane did not arrive at gate, they gave us poor/invalid excuses as to why there was no plane. We moved from gate 73A to gate 82, in another terminal back to gate 73A for no explainable reason. Finally we left after having to checked in now at gate 73.....what a mess and over 2hrs late!"
