Airline reviews

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"

Cons: "Repeatedly delayed, almost missed my next flight"

Pros: "The food we were served was of excellent quality which is so unusual when it comes to airline meals, crew and service was great as well. Obviously Air NewZealand have a far better understanding of what there customer base require compared to their competitors"
Cons: "Could not fault anything"

Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant and it was nice to get a drink of water, a cookie and the offer of a cup of tea or coffee"

Cons: "Very nice services"

Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it."

Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."

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: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Everything ! Staff was awesome , food was great and hi-tech plane with its entertainment consoles . Touch button options for ordering drinks , food , movies, chatting with other seat passangers , Wow! Blew my mind . We left on time and landed on time too.

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Free wine and cheese or choices of cookies—extra servings too."
Cons: "Seats are just standard—headrest part doesn’t adjust"

Cons: "The check in, the baggage drop off and pickup were very confusing and it made it a little stressful having to change flights. Boarding passes are also difficult to obtain through other airlines."

Cons: "No complaints here."

Pros: "Not very much"
Cons: "The crew in my area didnt like her job or passengers in general and it was obvious."

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "."

Pros: "Great service and food. The people were super friendly. Cabin was spacious and comfortable. Great kiwi experience!"

Cons: "Wasn't a fan of the dinner but no big deal"

Pros: "aisle seat"
Cons: "no food...not even orange juice."

Cons: "I had a 3 hour layover in Auckland before my connecting flight to Queenstown on the South Island. Quantas delays in Melbourne wiped that out forcing me to pay $500 NZD for a later flight on Air NZ. After contacting with Air NZ customer service and explaining the circumstances, they reduced it to $100 NZD. Pretty cool. Quantas basically said that since I had purchased a rock bottom priced ticket I should take a flying you know what at a rolling donut."

Pros: "All was good"

Pros: "I like the free check-bags"
Cons: "I like that if I can select the seats for free after booking ."

Pros: "seat comfort"
Cons: "breakfast, coffee"

Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."

Cons: "After a three hour delay and missed connection and rebooked flight, that is when the service declined. We went through 4 different lines in the Dallas airport, almost missed the rebooked flight due to miscommunications and shuffling of where we were supposed to be. And now delayed luggage."

Pros: "Crew were wonderful"
Cons: "The food must have been a bit off, though very tasty. Luckily had a 2 hou layover with nice lounge toilets"

Pros: "Sitting in an front isle seat with leg room and the helpful nice sterward"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"

Pros: "crew was nice. but we had massive delays and the attitude of the employees at the gate and on check in, was terrible"
Cons: "it was their fault that the plane was delayed (mechanical problems), when i asked to be transferred to jfk instead of newark, the employees at melbourne said it's not possible. basically it was their problem but refused to be accountable to it or to accommodate passengers"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"

Pros: "Nothing paid a bomb and got nothing for it"
Cons: "Everything!! Never again will I be hoodwinked for the price of a standard seat"

Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."

Cons: "On"

Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Trouble with iPad service."

Pros: "Super easy flight out of Auckland. Arrived in Nelson ahead of schedule."
Cons: "...the person coughing behind me..."

Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."

Pros: "The fresh fruit platter choice for breakfast"
Cons: "No fresh towels to wash hands & face before being served food"

Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Baggage arrived late."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"

Pros: "The plane was small, but it was my first time, so it was cool. The flight was quick and easy, and they covered my luggage even though it was too big for the plane overhead lockers."

Pros: "Friendly crew Comfy space Reasonable food Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Would have liked to be offered a second hot drink or would like the cups to be a bit bigger. Fresh food"

Pros: "The on boarding process"
Cons: "The plan was in very poor clean conditions. The seats were discussing to sit."

Cons: "No options for seat choose which totally rubbish don't like deal with Qantas in future"

Pros: "quick on time flight"
Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"

Cons: "This is the worst travel i've ever had. Got stuck in sydney because the first flight was delayed. I booked emirates and payed more to be on an emirates flight and to avoid flying with qantas. As qantas operated the first delayed flight i missed all my connecting flights and i'm still teavelling right now. Still in sydney. Never going to book through here again!"

Cons: "Seats very cramped with 6 children sharing seats invarea"

Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Food was very average for business class"

Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Food was tasteless just warm and food servied don't reflect the menu."

Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."

Cons: "Purchased seats at front of plane and parent with toddler travelled get alone. Assured seats not at back of plane. But once on plane was the very last seats and no recline."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Business class seating is not of international standard. Time to put upgraded accommodation in business class on this sector. I will not be flying this sector again with Qantas."

Pros: "Crew were wonderful 5 stars."
Cons: "Food soggy. Legroom is my biggest bug bear. Really appalling."

Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and lots of entertainment choices on the flight"
Cons: "I checked the flight prior to going to Auckland airport and all showed on time, by the time we cleared immigration and were in the airport we were notified of a six hour delay due to mechanical issues. I realize these things happen, but earlier notification would have prevented an 8 hour stay in the airport. The seats are pretty close together for a 3.5 hour flight. After hearing a lot of positive comments about Qantas, this was not a great first impression"

Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."

Cons: "2 hours late leaving"

Pros: "Loved the leg room, kind attendants, great meals."
Cons: "The technology malfunctioned the entire flight. It was less than ideal."

Pros: "The on board staff were fantastic, very personable, helpful and friendly."

Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."

Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."

Pros: "Service is great and crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "Audio system (both of us) were down. We were had to move to other seats in order to enjoy inflight entertainment."

Pros: "It was a safe flight."
Cons: "I have flown Qantas several times across the Pacific and have had much better experiences on the longer flights. Everything was delayed, the plane was small, and the food was pretty bad, even by airplane food standards. I just expected more given what I have come to expect from Qantas."

Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"

Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No announcement when it was late."

Pros: "Everything was wonderful, the crew were all very polite and boarding went very smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"

Pros: "Food was more than I expected!!"
Cons: "The length of the flight but that's not anyone's fault!!!"

Pros: "Thoughtful and friendliness of the Crews"
Cons: "None that i can think of"

Pros: "no amazing crew and no warm and fuzzies"
Cons: "Pre bought meals and wasn't permitted hot chocolate for children. Eventually given and nothing said. On the journey over hot choc offered. Not a big deal. I think you fall down in customer service by not supplying a little like coffee and hot choc and a free snack. Possably will avoid flying Jetstar again. Service is paramount. And no entertainment available because it wasnt a long haul just a short haul though international. Mmmmm no to Jetstar i feel. I own a resort and i know what customer service must feel like."

Cons: "Flight was canceled."

Pros: "Comfotable flight, Good landing."
Cons: "Though one of the stewardess' was professional she was a little impersonal. That statement is a little harsh as she was very young. I am sure as she gains experience she will become great at what she does. Maybe a big smile would help when she addresses passages."

Pros: "Exactly what we expected from a budget airline."
Cons: "Dragging the luggage between international and domestic terminal wasn't fun."

Cons: "Time"

Pros: "tons of leg room in emergency aisle + fast on/off loading of plane"
Cons: "weird boarding via bus that was kinda annoying"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Time"

Pros: "Efficient processes all round - check-in, boarding, disembarking, baggage collection, etc."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good seat. Good service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Small plane but comfy leg space; friendly crew."
Cons: "Fight was 30 mins late!"

Pros: "Easy check in, bag drop and courteous staff"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food or water"

Cons: "Long delays, unfriendly staff, really uncomfortable seats that barely recline, no food or drinks other than water and no entertainment."

Pros: "Great crew/ boarding/flight in general , on time & efficient staff"
Cons: "The seats need to be wider spaced as my husband is 6 foot & spent the flight with his knees against the back of the seat in front... a little more room please"

Pros: "I liked that they eventually told me I was going to be late."
Cons: "That I was late by a whole 1.5 hours and delayed twice."

Cons: "Was 3 hours late with no reason"

Pros: "The price, the timing of the flights"
Cons: "Cheap thin seats squashed together means you can feel every time the person behind you moves. There were people yelling at each other because they were getting so annoyed by it."

Cons: "Seats were tight and uncomfortable, even for me, a small person. I didn't order any food, so n/a there, but they didn't even offer water to drink. No entertainment available, either. Good thing I brought my own."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "First and last time I will ever fly with Jetstar. Flight delayed 2 hours. Flight 30 minutes late taking off. Cramped as H.E double L. Circled around the southern alps with a warning that we may not be able to land in Queenstown due to the hot conditions. Eventually announced they definitely couldn't land in Queenstown and would divert. Spent an hour on the tarmac in Christchurch and finally announced it was cool enough to land in Queenstown. Arrived 7 hours after the booked arrival time, along with a further 2.5 hours drive home. Missed a planned social function. Never, ever again. Even if they offered free flights. NEVER."

Pros: "Italy a okay flight"
Cons: "Don't have WiFi connection"

Pros: "Smooth boarding process and friendly crew"
Cons: "Buy luggage online! When we bought our tickets, the price per bag online was $15-25 pending the weight and size of the bags for checked luggage. Most airlines give you one checked bag for free, but whatever. $50 for two bags is not a huge deal. What I didn't know, and they didn't specify, is that was the online only price. When I got to the airport, they quoted me $225 for 2 bags! 225!! Both bags were around 40lbs each. Then they told us that if each bag weighed 6lbs less, the price would be $120. Let's just say our carryons ended up getting packed to the brim... And they still charged us $120. Ridiculous."

Pros: "I wasnt hungry"
Cons: "I declined as i wasnt hungry or yhisty"

Pros: "Staff were very friendly"
Cons: "For some reason I thought I had extra legroom but apparently not I was squished in between two people in the back of the plane the person in front of me was moving around a lot and hurting and knocking my knees"

Pros: "Customer service was great.Flight was on time and the weather was good for a day and a half"
Cons: "I did not like it when i got to the airport up there at 7:15 pm and when my Brand new suitcase came around on the carousel it had 2 smashed handles on it.I Reported it straight away to the people in departures.The young guy their gave me a number to ring, which i will be doing tomorrow"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "It was all on time. A good flight."

Pros: "First time flyer very good"

Pros: "On time departure/arrival"

Pros: "All very straightforward from boarding to landing. Pleasant and helpful crew. As comfortable as could be for a small plane."
Cons: "No entertainment available - although flight was only an hour so not really a big deal"

Cons: "Poor/no communication when flights were delayed, then cancelled, then delayed, then cancelled again! Resulted in waiting at the airport until after 12pm and very little of any sleep."

Pros: "Ticket price seemed reasonable, until it was time to check in"
Cons: "Airline wanted to charge $145 for one 20 kilo check-in bag Wanted to also push me to a later flight Would not allow anything over 7 kilos carry on, and were weighing items at the gate. This put several thousand dollars of camera gear for me at risk to baggage handlers with no option to pay more for weight. The airline of course accepts no responsibility if you do have to check fragile gear due to their carry on restrictions. Seat space was hands down the smallest I've ever seen. Overheard at least three other passengers say the same Overall, experience couldn't be worse. Will not fly again."

Pros: "Nothing from special services and checkin"
Cons: "We had 8 flights booked and requested 2 wheel chairs and 1 checked bag for each passenger for each flight. We had no problem with other airlines. We were told by the Jetstar employee on the flight from from Auckland that there was no checked baggsge requested Not likely from our end because we had 8 flights in a 3 week period. We had our bags weighed at special services and was told we were limited to 15 kg for a checked bag. One bag supposedly weighed on that scale 17.6 kg but the same bag showed it weighed 13.9 kg when we checked it in. We were forced to pay $70 per bag for a total of $140. We need a refundnd immediately. Funny, on the return trip to Auckland our tickets showed 1 checked bag per passenger and we'were limited to 20 kg per bag on Jetstar. How can an airline operate this way. Your survey is ridiculous because you ask for ratings on nonapplicable items. ."

Cons: "Ridiculously over priced baggage fees. I couldn't believe I was being charged just as much for my flight as I was my checked bags. They hope you book with them because they're slightly more affordable than other companies but then charge you for absolutely everything once you get to the airport. Staff seem to know its unfair, but unwilling to do anything to help you. I'll never fly with them again."

Pros: "The price, service, punctuality and the excellent service of all personal involved. Excellent service"
Cons: "A little de organized the boarding process but I have to say caused by passengers behavior, in addition some of the passengers didn't follow the luggage rule and nothing happened. I would like to suggest some information during the fligh. Where were be and what could we be seeing during our flight."

Cons: "Jetstar is cheap and terrible. We were charged $160 dollars to check small, carry-on sized bags we had expected to take on board with us. This is 4 times the price on their website; that price is no longer available once you're at check-in. The service was slow and inefficient. Even after checking in online we still had to wait in line to check in at the counter. This took ages since at least 5 or 6 other people were having issues with Jetstar, like us. The flight itself was cramped (I'm a shorter woman and had almost no leg room) and there were no complimentary drinks or snacks for our 4 hour flight. We opted for Jetstar because it's the cheapest option, but ended up having to pay more than we would have for a much nicer flight with another airline."

Pros: "On time. No fuss. No frills. As per expectations."
Cons: "Lower standards for no-frills airlines. Slow check-in at AKL, make sure you arrive 3 hours before departure time."

Pros: "2 hours late"
Cons: "2 hours late, constant 20 min delays until departure no real updates"

Pros: "No issues with boarding"
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Pilot made correct decision to abort approach."
Cons: "No plan to get passengers from Christchurch to Queenstown except bus or rent car, 7 hour drive in middle of the night. Never ride on Jetstar, take a car it's faster."

Pros: "For carriers such as jets tar you often have to pay to check a bag but it's not apparent how to do so from the app"

Pros: "Left & arrived on time -AKL to SYD."
Cons: "Not as low cost as advertised. Hidden costs: pay extra to pick a seat. Any seat. No luggage allowance, must pay extra for 1st checked bag. No complimentary drinks, must pay top price for coffee, water, juice. Airline coffee in paper cup. Credit card or debit only. Toilet use might be free... did not ch check."

Cons: "they charged $150 to check in a bag over 7 kg (15 lbs). the size of the bag was fine (20"), and if you fill such a bag with regular clothes, two pairs of shoes, and a toothbrush, you will easily hit 9-10 kg. so this airline expects you to travel with a 20" bag that is only partially filled, which is ridiculous."

Cons: "Website was not clear on baggage policy during booking and upon checking in, we were slammed with baggage fees of $160.00 NZ for each bag. Not happy."

Pros: "Frustrated by how late I was allowed to Check-in, then had to rush to the plane. Classic problem, but, why you don't pay for a budget flight."

Pros: "Great electronic boarding procedures, mobile app and website. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable agents at airports and on-board. Will definitely fly JetStar in the future and highly recommend this airline!"

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Pros: "Nothing - terrible service."
Cons: "All they cared about was charging us for our carryon. They lost my luggage and I missed my meetings in Sydney. Nobody to complain to they have no staff in Sydney. They also tagged my luggage to the wrong passenger and it was an ordeal to get it back once they found it. Talk about a security breach !! Never fly them again !!! Will be sending info to media!! Paid $320 for extra baggage fees coming from an Air Canada business flight ticket with carry-on - they didn't care!! Kelta at ck in only cared about charging us and when I told her to put the bags in my name she said don't tell me how to do my job I know - and then bag is in another person's name and he had to leave asap in Sydney and it was an ordeal to get report done!! They charge for coffee on board and flight attendants were also rude!! Where is the customer service? Terrible !!"

Pros: "Nothing good to say - flight was the 1st of the day and already 1hour late!"
Cons: "Badly managed with chaotic organisation"

Pros: "The staff were very warm & professional from the beginning at check in to the end of departing our flight. Would recommend again."
Cons: "You can only purchase food with a debit card or Credit card."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Ok"
