Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Service was not very kind on either of our Fiji air flights. I honestly will avoid flying with Fiji air in the future—much better airlines to choose from."
Cons: "350 pound passenger placed next to us in window seat. Passenger took over 1/3 of my wife's seat. Flight was full, no effort made by crew to correct situation."
Pros: "The crew had a good attitude for the flight."
Cons: "Felt like this being a 8 hour flight there would be some entertainment on the plane , just radio. Also there was no food options from what I saw available either."
Pros: "The crew was great. Food was good."
Cons: "They SERIOUSLY need to update the entertainment on the plane. If everyone has to watch the same movie, which prehistoric in itself, can they at least make a recent movie and not one from the 80's??? They played 2 movies, both from the 80's!"
Pros: "Great lounge, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The business seat doesn't fold fully flat, but only about 160 degrees. They mixed up my drink in the morning and I got a cheap sugary fruit punch."
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."

Cons: "Planes seemed dated. Video equipment was in overhead bin."
Pros: "The staff was all very nice and I always felt like they were doing their best to help. the situation seemed out of their control. It was nice of the airline to provide hotel and meal vouchers. (The meal vouchers didn't go very far at the Sheraton where all the food is very over priced.)"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 16 hours so I missed my entire trip to Fiji. This is devastating to me and I feel I should be compensated. Fiji Airways didn't notify me of the delay until I was already at the airport checking in so it wasted even more time and money. I bought this ticket because the flight time was convenient. Then it left at 3:55am which is the worst time to leave because I couldn't sleep beforehand and felt awful the whole evening and during the flight and after. To top it off the airline wouldn't check my bag through to my final destination. I was very unhappy with how this occurred."

Pros: "Our flight to NAN was delayed five hours ; however, when we came to the check-in desk, they knew immediately who we were and informed us of a change. The staff at the desk [a man and a woman] were extremely helpful and verified a change would be acceptable and they put in all of the work to make it happen - we returned an hour later and they had switched us to a flight from SYD - SFO - LAX on Qantas airlines. Things from there went off without a hitch ; while our departure time was still 5 hours later, we arrived to the US earlier than we would have on the SYD-NAN-LAX flight."

Cons: "Entertainment was poor with old screens coming down from the ceiling. No choice of movies."
Pros: "The plane interior is decent & clean for the most part."
Cons: "I had to call Fiji airways 10 times and explain the situation to 10 different people, got hung up on 7 times, & no one ever called me back to resolve the issue. I ended up having to pay $100 to change a flight because of their cancellation... Flight attendants were bossy and rude. One blew a whistle at a passenger when they got up to use the bathroom after we landed."
Cons: "Flight was very cold. We went through security three times. Limited number of movies and music. Food was not poor quality.
