Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew on Air NZ is consistently wonderful. The entertainment and sets for domestic flights are good, but not great. For international flights, their seats and entertainment are excellent."

Pros: "The crew was very hospitable and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The corn chips!"

Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."

Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Overall great"

Pros: "Lovely, friendly crew!"
Cons: "No seat selection available on line, so stuffed in the back. No place for luggage. No soft drinks on flight. Mexican chips??? What’s that about?"

Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"

Cons: "We got off an hour and a half late as there was an audio technical problem."

Pros: "Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated."
Cons: "The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland."

Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"

Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"

Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"

Cons: "$80 baggage fees for luggage over 7 kg. I wasn’t aware of high price and luggage weight restriction until I was at airport"

Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"

Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."

Cons: "The lack of communication with everything from queuing to board, to food allowance."

Pros: "Crew solid n friendly enough"
Cons: "Seats too tight n cramped"

Pros: "Inflight magazine was just the right length for the flight time"
Cons: "Cookie was stale and coffee was nothing special... but that’s typical of all airlines"

Cons: "I was connecting on an International flight on same airline, New Zealand Air, and did not see where I was required to pay for our one checked bags for my wife and I. When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."

Pros: "The regional flights are nice and quick with no frills or complications. Everyone is in one cabin and you can quickly board using kiosks at the gate."
Cons: "You might want to bring a book on this flight or something as their in-flight video and adverts are all you'll really see in terms of entertainment."

Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."

Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"

Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."

Pros: "Quickest boarding ever - Have hardly seen an airline having people board through the rear entry Super fun safety video All-in-all a great experience"

Pros: "The check-in process was extremely simple and easy. The staff were very friendly and happy to help. They didn't make a huge deal out of small problems, as so many seem to like doing."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, speedy boarding, nice comments from the captain."

Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."

Pros: "A little cramped on the domestic flight, but for the hour or so from Christchurch to Auckland, it was acceptable. I was impressed that ANZ did a quick meal service on this short flight. The crew was great - very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Close quarters between seats."

Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."

Pros: "Everything, felt safe"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."

Pros: "Fuji was Great"

Pros: "Fiji Airways price"

Pros: "Service was so perfect especially on board,staff are friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "When we get to Fiji entrance was so hot ,no air conditioner staff are so slow and only one staff serve ,people has to wait for long time ,don’t mind waiting but was so hot to wait for long especially with kids"

Cons: "Liked everything about it"

Pros: "Crew. On time."
Cons: "Foid."

Pros: "Loved the soft good quality complintary blankets they had available for us on every seat as well as pillow. Really made it feel homey and comfortable. Probably the best airline meal I’ve had. It was like a creamy mushroom chicken with mashed potatoes, cheese wedge, crackers, etc."

Cons: "The seat were not that comfortable!"

Pros: "movies and tv were cool"
Cons: "Fiji Gold is too sweet, Fiji bitters is much better"

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Delay flights"

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened. At least they could have tried the following day but I guess it was a financial decision and not one made with customer service in mind. I would never fly on them except they’re the only game in town to reach Kiribati."

Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "comfortable flight"

Cons: "Small space"

Cons: "Narrow aisles"

Pros: "I like the entertainment options"
Cons: "Crew not careful during food/beverage service. Received a 2nd degree burn from tea accident due to getting spilled on"

Pros: "Except entertainment and comfort i did not like an thing else."
Cons: "Very bad food for those who are strict veterinarian and even don't eat onion, garlic, mushroom because their religion dose not allow. very bad for one who is going to LA and allow only one hand carry even all other airlines allow one hand carry and one computer bag."

Pros: "Got to Fiji safe."
Cons: "1. Checked in was very slow. When we got done, we have to run to the gate cuz they are already boarding. 2. Seats were very small, too tight even for people with short legs. 3. Not much movies to choose from, it was an 11 hour flight, at least give us more movies to choose from. 4. Just saw crew once, when they were passing out meals and collecting them."

Pros: "Crew is very nice & welcoming"
Cons: "Delayed flight, which I understand happens. However they stayed the new flight time was 6:05pm. We didn't take off until at least another hour after that. Minimum entertainment options - approx 30 movies all together and most were older. Food was not good. Small seats with very little leg too"

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: "As comfortable as an air flight can be. Friendly staff"

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: "Covered by headline"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment consoles for the whole middle section went out and even a reboot could not correct the problem. No one with expertise to troubleshoot the problem."

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: "FLIGHT CREW ON PLANE ARE ALL SO POLITE HELPFUL. FOOD WAS GREAT."
Cons: "AND HAD TO WAIT WHILE ME AND MY BROTHER SEARCHED FOR ONE. EACH TIME WE BOARDED A FLIGHT WE WERE TOLD THAT IT Won't HAPPEN AGAIN AND IT DID IN LAX NADI AND TONGA. IF MY MOM HAD GONE ALONE WHO KNOW WHERE SHE WOULD BE. HANDICAP AND WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE CUSTOMERS SHOULD REALLY BE TAKEN CARE OF BECAUSE THEY CANNOT DO MUCH."

Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Crew was nicest in the air, so friendly, professional, helpful!"
Cons: "Many glitches in the reservations process: my flight records were messed up on 3 flights. Recommend allowing a LOT of extra time for check in if you fly Fiji!"
