Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."

I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."

Pros: "United miles."
Cons: "Entertainment very poor, no selection, I took the flt in Jan and the movies and selection was sane in Feb. Bad. Food was so so."

Pros: "The entrainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped"
Cons: "Long delay with in between flights. No special kits for kids to keep them entertained. Does not even serve drink when order special meal. Leaves the tray for hour before picking up. No transit help in hongkong. I can go on and on."
Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"
Pros: "Ice cream for snack? Heck YES. Variety of meals to choose from (i got hindu meal)"
Cons: "On the way to Korea, a stewardess keep taking my water away thinking i was done with it. It was very nice of her she tries to take trashes away, but it wasn't trash for me."
Pros: "Everything in this flight is very good. Next traveling time I will consider this airline first!!"
Cons: "Crew rarely walked aisles with water. Gluten free meal was mediocre. Seat was old and uncomfortable. Entertainment options were mediocre."
Cons: "Business cabin is not as good as the Air France one"
Pros: "Flight arrived earlier than expected and the flight attendants were good and polite."
Pros: "Crew staff were excellent. Food was pretty good. Overall trip was flawless including and early arrival."
Cons: "The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."
Pros: "Singapore Air is keeping up their standard which is a tough job. I give credit to them while doing so. They do have a high bar to keep. Singapore Air still pampers its travellers by providing hot towels for refreshment. Something that I don't enjoy while flying on other airlines. Keep up the good job."
Cons: "I saw a scotch tape taping over the arm of the seat! This is rather amusing and seems unacceptable. This is Singapore Air that we are talking about. Are we saying that Singapore Air do not have any proper repair kit to fix it without using scotch tape?? Being one of the world's 5-star airline, I think Singapore Airline can do better than that. :)"
Pros: "Everything else was good"
Cons: "I purchased wifi and it was too slow to load my movie. Ear buds fell out of ears."
Pros: "The food, the seating, the upgrade, the very polite and attentive staff. I thanked them, and for that, they gave me a hand written note and a set of cards. So sweet. Totally worth it to fly Singapore."
Cons: "I didn't like how Vayasan and Singapore airlines telephone check in both claimed they could not upgrade. It was part of the policy/seating I bought. They were wrong, the airlines at San Francisco airport did it without blinking, after checking my visa status."
Pros: "Extremely polite flight crew"
Cons: "-The food was pretty bad -The movie sound quality was bad, and the subtitles didn't work -Not much leg room"
Pros: "Great seats and leg space in premium economy."
Cons: "We had the staff come to us twice to keep the "noise" down (we were travelling with a 2.5 yrs old). Now we travelled on other legs with Singapore airlines, with the same toddlers and same "noise" levels, but no one came to us to request to keep the noise level down... I am guessing that premium economy has a different (lower) threshold for toddler "noises" !! :)"
Cons: "The crew members is not very detail oriented. Almost forgot to give our whole row of people without dinner. Don't they remember where they left off sheesh. I work at a hotel before and customer service all my life, I don't think I will make that mistake."
Cons: "Older aircraft seats quite hard entertainment on last flight to Copenhagen entertainment was average."
Pros: "Friendly and approachable cabin crew."
Cons: "Boarding was not good. No clear announcement. No special boarding for star alliance gold member."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Entertainment system doesn't have a touch screen like other airlines. They give you ear but buds instead of head phones. Alright they gave us headphones for our young son you had to put the foam covers on yourself and they kept coming off. Not a very good selection of movies. Good is bland and not very good options."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and responsive to all requests."
Pros: "Food is always the best. I had the butter chicken for dinner. It was very delicious."
Cons: "I think this was just a personal issue for me only, but I would say the atmosphere. I felt the plane was humid and often at times, I found it hard to breathe. On one occasion, a flight attendant attempted to take my food away without asking if I was finished or not. I was annoyed by their lack of manners. I also didn't like having two blankets. There was no room under the seat in front of me, to put it anywhere. It significantly reduced my comfort. The passengers sitting next to me also had no respect when they asked me to step aside and was rude in general. It made my mood worse throughout the flight but I hanged in there. It was okay."
Pros: "Crew was excellent; responsive, cheery. The safety video was unique enough to have passengers pay attention (seldom seen onother airlines). We were impressed and will fly "Air All Blacks" again soon."
Cons: "Online checkin presented problems, as did the kiosk checkin. Breakfast could have been served a little earlier -- I realize they wanted to give passengers sleep time and turbulence may have delayed service somewhat, too. Otherwise good."
Pros: "Food was delicious and warm. Water was provided throughout the flight. Entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "There were large black box type items underneath certain seats which impacted personal item stowage and leg room."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful again. This time I had an aisle seat in the center section and it was much more comfortable. The food was vegetarian and quite good."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "It was over $450 to try and change the short segment fligt from Christchurch to Auckland. I could have bought a new ticket for 1/2"
Pros: "I had to us the wheel chair And they were all GREAT I was by my self"
Cons: "Right now I can't think of any thing"
Pros: "Small puddle jumper, but everything was well organized."
Pros: "I would encourage no one ever book with New Zealand Air again."
Cons: "The rude and self righteous gate agent with horrific breath threatened to call security if I did not leave the boarding line and sit and wait until the flight left."
Cons: "5 hours late. Had to go to work on 2 hours sleep"
Pros: "After the schedule for my Houston flight was delayed by 3 1/2 hours, customer service was able to put me on a flight thru LAX which got me back to my original ORD arrival time and avoided an overnight stay before continuing on home. The meal vouchers offered were an unexpected bonus. Thanks."
Cons: "Foot space in front of seat was limited."
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Service, food, chairs, entertainment"
Cons: "3 hour delay created major issues for an international flight."
Cons: "My ticket did not say that it was a no luggage,no meal ticket & I printed off the E ticket & no where on the E ticket did it state no luggage.....I think that needs to be shown clearly when we book. I had to pay for 1 bag & it would have been $250 but ANZ did work with me &changed the ticket for $125 name-Marjorie Kalama"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and friendly Plane was clean Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Vegan breakfast was a bit odd (more of a dinner than a breakfast). Temperature was a bit on the cold side (I had a sweater, vest, jacket, and the blanket and was still cold)."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Allowed us to change seats within our section for more comfort. Good food. Loves the USB outlet at our seats."
Pros: "there were extra blankets."

Pros: "Good lleg room in the aircraft. Friendly service."
Pros: "Everything. Loads of leg room."
Pros: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. There were plenty of movies to choose from--and I do mean a massive selection. Also, the food was better than I usually expect from airplane food. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I guess this goes for all economy class seats, but there's no room to move. I was lucky to have an empty middle seat (which merits the "good" rating over the "okay"), but even with that, maneuvering was difficult (trying to get stuff from the carry on stored beneath the seat, etc.). Things got worse when the person in front of me decided to put his chair back all the way into my face."
Pros: "It was what I expected"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Pros: "Air New Zealand staff are very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are the most uncomfortable and tight I have ever experienced on an international flight, and we were in exit row seats. For a 15 hour flight, it was miserable."
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "For how much a ticket cost, they really take advantage of you. 7.5 kilo max carry on... what a joke. My bag ways that without anything packed. It's time for some competition to right their ship."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful. One of our travelers got sick on the plane and, unfortunately, made a mess in one of the toilets. Without batting an eye, the crew took on the thankless task of cleanup. We noticed that the bulkheads had fixtures embedded in them to allow a small basinet to be attached to the bulkhead. One couple used it for their infant and it seemed to be a lifesaver. I don't know of any other airline that offers this."
Cons: "Our seats were more narrow than normal. Almost to the point of discomfort. We did fly on Air New Zealand from Auckland to Christchurch and the seats on that flight were what I would consider a "normal" width. Meals were served in a timely way but the food was just okay - nothing outstanding. But, we did fly coach/economy."
Pros: "Spring for the extra money and go for the Premium Economy seats! Great food, free wine."
Pros: "Free drinks!"
Pros: "Very friendly and good service- price was very high for the distance/time"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options--movies and TV shows."
Pros: "Lost our baggage twice!"
Pros: "Large screen with good choice of movies etc"
Cons: "As they have 3-4-3 seating on their 777 (BA and Delta have 3-3-3) the seats are very narrow to make room for the extra seat in school row"
Pros: "For such a long flight the food is not good! The only snacks are a tiny tiny bag of corn chips or a cookie. The attendants were average. The comfort of coach was bad. Other airlines will give you great snacks, tooth brush, night mask, etc but not Air New Zealand they are almost like a budget airline. Not sure how they are rated the best airline."
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "The pillow I was given smelled terrible, it seems they may change only the pillow case, but re-use pillows. They really should provide fresh pillows."
Pros: "I upgraded seat for the return flight home. The service was excellent, food - high quality, and cabin personnel knowledgeable/friendly. Overall the inside of the plane was clean and pleasing to the eye.. US Airlines should take some lessons from Air New Zealand"
Cons: "could not check in online. Traveling with my daughter and we were unable to lock in seats together. Gate agents were able to do this but not proof to arrival at assigned gate."
Pros: "Friendly crew, always."
Cons: "Whatever was served for hot breakfast on my flight (I think it was supposed to be scrambled eggs and baked beans) was absolutely horrible. Everyone in my section of the plane took one bite and passed it back to the stewards."
Pros: "Air New Zealand has some of the friendliest cabin crews around. Their food is above average and they have a delicious array of wines served free with meals. My flight was interrupted by a medical emergency. We had to backtrack to the nearest airport, which added several hours to the flight. This meant a very long day for both passengers and crew. The crew remained cheerful and helpful throughout, in spite of cranky passengers."
Pros: "Short, friendly people and was on time. Awesome all around"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "Traveled as a family of 6 but our special meal requests--confirmed by phone prior to outbound journey--were not available, making the long journey very difficult. They crew tried to help and said they would follow up."
Pros: "What a nice surprise! Very friendly in-flight agents. They even topped off my water bottle :) GREAT movies and TV options. Actually edible food... Can't beat this affordable comfort!"
Cons: "As with most planes, vey limited overhead space compared to # of passengers. Had to check carry-on bags both to and from NZ. Not so bad though since it was free!"
Pros: "Seats were good. Lots of movies to watch. Good headphones. Food was not bad. They had chocolate ice cream for desert! Crew was nice. I would fly again."
Cons: "Free Wi-fi would be cool."
Pros: "The accommodations were unexpected and amazing!"
Pros: "Crew was great, good selection of movies"
Pros: "Loved it"
Cons: "Sit was a little tight"

Pros: "Staff, service,"
Cons: "Legroom, seat comfort, very long flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "My mom traveled alone for the first time. She doesn't speak English very well. I'm so impressed with the crew that they took good care of my mother. They understood her super broken English and served her real good vegetarian food. Thanks again."
Cons: "not so much."
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "Boarding process was good. But security check is inconsistent at different locations within the Airport terminal."
Cons: "Poor Seat comfort. Too narrow seats. USB charger were not working. Tamil language movies were very few. Crew was efficient but were not polite and not cordial."
Pros: "Food and service."
Pros: "The crew was awesome had the most caring crew anything you need thier there to make us happy I’m absolutely happy"
Cons: "I dislike the economic class on a 19 hour journey to Doha to Dallas Texas I felt so tight and annoyed with people next to me when asking to go to the bathroom that’s my mistake next time I surely will go on bussiness class other then that everything was great."
Pros: "At gate boarding was I inefficient and managed professionally. On board entertainment was glitchy as the movies paused and skipped the entire flight."
Cons: "The staff were not trained well and unaware of how to conduct proper flow of customer screening."
Cons: "Everything ok"
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Cons: "Just bathroom in end"
Pros: "There were a lot if security checks but the boarding crew was very helpful and let me check in a bag at rhe last minute with duty free shopping items that i would not have been able to carry with me on-board the airplane."
Cons: "No internet and the food was mediocre at best."
Cons: "They drop you at the airport for 16-17 hours Airport hotel costs around 350$/night No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they gave No entry visas because you bought a discounted ticket!!"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "Quality food and hospitality"
Pros: "Everything from courtesy, to very good food, and a clean flight."
Pros: "I received email telling me that my fright was delayed and showed the time they told me to be at KGL airport but when I showed the airline was already left because they was no delayed. I had to book another plane to return to US which cost me $1500. Here is the email Dear Mr Muvunyi Good morning This is to inform you that your flight from Kigali QR1378 is delayed due to operational reasons, please be at Kigali Airport for check in at 4PM and check-in will close at07PM. Best regards Jeanne D’arc Uwitije Reservations & Ticketing Supervisor Tel: (+250) 252553500"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "The kit was really helpful for the really long flight. Good service!, food was better than our previous flight"
Cons: "Took a long time to get the trays after meals (at least 30-40mins) , didn't offer smaller snacks such as cookies between meals,"
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "my child was very sick on this flight and the air crew were very concerned and very helpful... i really appreciated all their concern and help. they consulted a doctor on the ground and provided the medicine and advice to bring my 3 year olds sickness under control... ( which included diarrhea and vomiting numerous times... please thank them for me... they were also concerned about her welfare after we would land.... thanks thanks thanks"
Pros: "Great service. Easy. Comfortable."
Cons: "Only 2.5 meals in 16 hours!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "I had a great experience with overall trip."
Cons: "I was not very impressed with hostesses service. on the second leg of the trip. The boarding process was not organized at all. We have zone numbers but people just boarded at first come first served basis"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Stewardesses were more helpful on this flight than we had experienced on the previous flights. However their resources were limited. landed safely."
Cons: "Food on the four different flights (from DFW to Doha on to Cape Town and then from Johannesburg to Doha on to DWF) was not good at all. Timing of meals, food all below expected. One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "Staff courtesy"
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "Food serving took a while. And need improvements."
Pros: "I like everything about Qatar Airways"
Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food frequency for 16 hour flight was awfully inadequate. Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. No intermittent beverage and snack service in 16 hour flight segment. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"
Pros: "The flight was SO OLD and uncomfortable which is absolutely ridiculous for a 16 hour flight. My screen did not work the entire time despite asking flight attendants to fix the issue. The flight attendant would not attend to me despite me pressing the button and twice skipped me while giving out meals. I had to call them back and ask for it. The bathrooms were SO dirty and yet no flight attendant took out the trash or cleaned it even though we are in the midst of a pandemic. We were also not given hygiene kits to keep ourselves safe. DO NOT FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE."
Cons: "Love it! Next time, I will for sure buy tickets from Kayak"
Cons: "Offer cappuccino along with coffee, tea, and juice."
Cons: "Not much food to eat."
Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."
Cons: "Third time on emirates but this time it was the worst. Even worse service, seats, and food. While my kids ordered the regular meal I had ordered the Low Sodium Meal because of my health. The meal that I got was saltier than the regular meal!"
Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."
Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit. I had the same meal twice it was very sad meal for 17.5 hrs with no snacks offered either. My partner and another man were forgotten as the meal rounds were being done. The crew seemed a little disorganised. The adverts on the entertainment were annoying."
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Cons: "Food was not awful and most item not available in Fist Suites"
Pros: "Dinner meal. Seats"

Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"

In addition, a kid was seated behind me and repeatedly (and I do mean repeatedly) kicked me in the back and slammed the tray table into my back. The crew found me another seat and were extremely nice about it."
Cons: "My request for vegan food was lost - it is hard to feel comfortable for that long of a time period just eating fruit. (This is even after the crew from the previous flight tried to remedy the situation by notifying them.)"
Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"

Pros: "I have been traveling at least 4 times in a year for last 20 years. I never had such a worst staff specially the Msnager of Fiji airline ground staff at Sydney airport named Christopher. Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller."

Pros: "I traveled with my 4 children and my husband. Out of Honolulu the flight is scheduled very late so i had extemely exhausted children. The gate agents were so very helpful and so compassionate, especially because my 4 month old baby was crying. They stepped up and helped me with my other kids as my husband was out looking for water to make a bottle for him. Awesome awesome service! The crew was very nice and helpful when we were all sleeping. Did not bother us once and they let us sleep. Unfortunately I did not try their food service but my husband said it was delicious. The only thing was that they only offered a couple of movies via some small screen at the ceiling of plane making it hard for my 5 yo daughter to watch anything ultimately relying on their tablets which dies early. Overall, from check in to touch down, it was a very pleasant flight! Oh! And the blankets were so soft!!"
Pros: "The people were amazingly friendly and the airport was awesome. Really small and unique."
Cons: "Liked everything about it"
Pros: "Very comfortable and the pilot landed the plane perfectly in bad weather! Thank y'all Fiji Airways!"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic,,,to being on tine, to boarding and to service thru out the flight. Five star airline!"
Pros: "The flight itself was good, the front end/airline was not so good..."
Cons: "They were a minimum 45 minutes late (one 2 hour, 2 one hour) for every flight. Their running late caused us to miss our connection to Brisbane, so they sent us to Sydney. The ,late flight into Sydney cause us to miss our flight into Brisbane (our ticketed destination city). As we de-planed on the Jetway was a woman holding a sign with 12 - 114 names on it, we were one. She told us to go the the transfer desk and they would help us. We had never been in Sydney, could not find a transfer desk (there was none) found the ticketing counter - nobody there, found the airline office - nobody there, went back to the ticket counter nobody still there, asked a competing airline, they directed us to an air travel management office, where we found Fiji Air personnel. They were surprised we were not told where to go. they tracked down the office manager. We finally met with him at 1:40 PM, he told us our flight was in the domestic terminal and scheduled to leave at 2:00 PM. There was no way we could make it to the plane on time. He was rather rude to us and asked us how we thought we were getting to Brisbane, We responded with "I don't know as we've never been here before". Having never been there. we did not know there was an international and a domestic terminal at the Sydney airport. He told us who we were to fly out on and he was going to call over to the other airline and straighten it out. We went to the domestic terminal tried to check in for our flight, but we could not. That airline called Fiji Air to find out why, after half an hour they were told Fiji Air would not honor our flight as we were noted as "no Shows"/. We had to book another flight to Brisbane. The flights were great, we have had VERY BAD EXPERIENCES with the ground personnel,"
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."
Pros: "The service was very friendly."
Cons: "My knees while sitting upright drive into the seat in front of me. No extra legroom seats available. Please start saving these for people who actually need them. Also, boarding was like cattle hearding, lack of organization caused anxiety ... albeit my wife and I were amused by people without direction."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "This was an older plane than the one from Sydney. No seat back unit. IFE was old screens that drop from the overhead. 2nd show was cut off mid stream due to landing. Seat uncomfortable and showing their age. Full flight so very crowded."
Pros: "Staff very good, food and beverage service was delayed or postponed due to turbulence but staff made up for it when service resumed."
Cons: "Entertainment movies not very many new releases."
Pros: "movies and tv were cool"
Cons: "Fiji Gold is too sweet, Fiji bitters is much better"
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."
Pros: "Previously took 4 other Air NZ flights on this trip and loved them - great entertainment, very pleasant and helpful crew. The long flight from Fiji back to the US was partnered with Air Fiji and it was just a bit above average compared to our typical experience with Air NZ. The boarding experience was really good and much more organized than most airlines, which was nice. Plenty of bathrooms available, they came around with water frequently, which is a must on these long flghts, and every seat had their own screen for entertainment, which is very nice."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, not much leg room especially for such a long red eye. Movie and TV selection was limited compared to typical Air NZ flights. Half the crew was somewhat unpleasant and overlooked passengers trying to give them trash and even charitable contributions when they were going around collecting specifically those things. (The other half of the crew was the more typically amazing, customer oriented attitude.) Not sure if Air Fiji just over works its crew or what, but it was not as pleasant. The food was also back to typical just ok airplane food, not normal for Air NZ which has great food and lots of it. We also were not able to pick our seats for this flight, which was not ideal for comfort or location."
Cons: "The food was okay. For a long flight I was expecting more options."
Pros: "Fiji Airways is among the top airlines for the long haul routes. New aircraft, clean cabins, fine entertainment and the friendliest crew you can find. They are consistently great."
Pros: "Overall service is good for a short flight"
Pros: "No surprises. Left on time. Food better than average"
Cons: "Took longer than thought given distance covered"
Pros: "Had decent entertainment options and enjoyed the blanket and pillow!"
Cons: "Food, I chose to not even eat the meals after my first experience with Fiji Airways."
Cons: "No free entertainment, no food, unfriendly staff"
Pros: "The boarding and service by the staff was very good. We had a most comfortable flight to Sydney on FJ911 leaving very promptly. We were given a Sydney newspaper which I appreciated to catch up on news."
Cons: "We were very disappointed in the breakfast and ate little of it. The scrambled egg didn't taste convincing. There were stale potato wedges - luke warm, the sausage resembled devon . The yogurt, muffin and juice were OK. My 2 cups of tea were VERY GOOD. The flight was very COLD. After being in tropical Fiji particularly noticeable ."
Pros: "crew, service, food"
Cons: "Length of trip"
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."
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: "Flight was very cold. We went through security three times. Limited number of movies and music. Food was not poor quality. Boarding took forever and there were a couple of excuses for the delay given in an unprofessional manner. Overall I would pay extra to take a different airline next time."
Pros: "Staff was very kind."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 2 hours Leg room was tight for a 10 hour flight Movie options were dated"
Cons: "The only choice of food was curry"
Pros: "Loved the friendly staff and the food was surprisingly tasty, although some meals were considerably nicer than others. There was plenty to do - great options of movies and shows - and the electronics worked perfectly."
Cons: "Wished WiFi was available and eye masks were offered."
Cons: "beware -- your carry on must be smaller than given or it does not go on."
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "The food. The crew can be a little friendlier. They don't seem too happy to work for the company."
Pros: "Free food free booze and free movies music and tv!"
Cons: "The food was only subpar, sloppy eggs and wet chicken but everything else was fine."
Cons: "It was crazy cold on the plane. I'm a frequent flyer and never in my life had I been this cold. I had a sweater, a scarf and a blanket, but couldn't relax to sleep as I was shivering the whole time. My friend traveling with me and the people in our row were feeling the same way. Plus they make you remove your blanket for take off and landing, which I've never had to do with other companies. It went from shivering to teeth chattering. I couldn't understand why they served us a hot meal when we got on the plane. Anyone boarding at 11:30 pm should have already eaten, at that point you just want to sleep, not wait another two hours for food to be served and the trays cleaned up."
Pros: "Service food were good"
Cons: "Plane broke down upon arrival. New plane. Had to be flown in from Fiji. Caused a full day delay in return travel."
