The flight was close to on time. My suitcase was not loaded in Bangkok and was delivered 24 hours later.
Pros: "Entertainment system was new and easy to use. Seats in premium economy were quite comfortable."
Cons: "A vegetarian / pescatarian option on the menu would have been nice but other than that, all good."
Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."
Cons: "Flat bed in business class was disappointing. No way anyone taller than 6’ could stretch out. Overall, it was an inferior experience to business class on Cathay Pacific, which sets the standard IMO."
Pros: "The food selection, there is several pre-order meal based on diet or your religion"
Cons: "The seat pitch at least 33""
Pros: "Entertainment system ok"
Cons: "Change if gate 30 minutes before departure and no info at old gate. New gate very far away, terrible for old people."
Cons: "The layover in Singapore was a nightmare with insufficient hotel accommodation, nothing but Asian food and overly officious security staff."
Pros: "I have tall family members and they had enough legroom even at the back of the plane. Service was excellent. Snacks and drinks were regular on offer even between meal. Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
The pilot tried to make up for lost time due to delays that were out of her control. She communicated the issues openly and clearly and made every effort to do what she could to alleviate issues.
Pros: "Skycouch in Economy was wonderful. Although small, it was sufficient in order to get comfortable and get several hours of sleep on a long flight. Entertainment system was outstanding, with excellent selections of movies, TV, TED talks & music. Plus, ordered water, beverages and snacks at any time via the screen and it was delivered to my seat. We had a seat change request at the gate which was resolved by the gate agent who was amazing."
Cons: "Check in and bag drop area needed personnel to assist and answer questions. It was not clear what to do and we stood in along line that we could have avoided if there had been a customer service rep to guide us."
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 options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."
Pros: "The crew, as always, was fantastic. Very helpful and always kind. The seats are comfortable enough, considering it was a long flight, and the excellent entertainment helped the time pass quickly."
Pros: "This is an overnight red eye flight. There is not much to interact with crew or service. It is simply long with attempts to sleep."
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"
Pros: "I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage..."
Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"
Cons: "For the $s paid for this flight the crew could be a little bit friendlier and having a smile on their face."
Pros: "Air New Zealand was great, plane comfortable and the crew very nice"
Cons: "$120 to check my 12kg bag! I was outraged! Was sold a ticket that included nothing but a seat and virgin and air new Zealand were not helpful. Kayak should have been more transparent about this exhorbitant fee! I plan to raise a stink when I get back to the states. Was shocked and had no other choose but to pay!"
couldn't work out how to work entertainment. seats a bit cramped.
large seats was good. delayed flight, no food, no entertainment. plane was not cleaned, see rubbish from prior flights
Pros: "The very good check in service at Changi Airport , for Business Class"
Cons: "The food ! Great on way over , poor on return leg from Singapore"
Pros: "screen, ubs charger"
Cons: "be more careful with luggage; 8 flights on this trip and it would be this last one that my luggage cover was lost, and it wasn't a cheap one."
Cons: "I changes flights to leave out of Sydney instead. I ended up paying 304.00 in change fee even thought i booked flight using 80,000 miles reward travel still was charged to change the flight"
Pros: "The crew was great and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "If the seats reclined more, it would have been easier to sleep. The baby behind me would not stop screaming for 7 of the 15 hour flight. The flight was oversold so there was no where I could move. Even ear plugs didn’t help. Everyone was miserable."
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Pros: "Snacks and the drinks are good. Boarding are pretty smooth."
Cons: "Dinner and breakfast are not too good. We waited for long period of time for the luggages."
Pros: "Love going to Yancey when we are pushed by the tail winds!"
Cons: "Breakfast was dire"
Cons: "We were booked for a connecting flight we could not possiblely have made given we had to go through customs, immigragion and baggage claim. We had to catch a later flight which was then delayed because none of the toilets worked."
The part that really made for a poor trip was that we checked luggage, and it took 1.5 hrs. to get our luggage. This made it so we barely got to our next flight. We were the last ones on board.
Staff was very helpful, polite, efficient. Food was excellent. Business class seat very comfortable.
The business class seat was not very comfortable . Fortunately it was a short flight
Pros: "the crew was good."
Cons: "hot as hell during check in outside and it took forever. then the entertainment on the plane which was prehistoric with everyone having to watch the same movie, plus it was a very old movie!"
Pros: "Seat comfortable, we paid extra for emergency exit"
Cons: "The entertainment system for a 5 hour flight was poor quality and for limited time only. Also the quality of the vegetarian meal was average"
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."
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding in Fiji was hectic, several searches and interruptions in line from staff who had trouble communicating"
Pros: "Nothing was real impressive but nothing really bad for a budget airline."
Cons: "the food, entertainment options (movies) the service including drinks, the plane itself and the overall airline could all be much better."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Comfortable flight considering it was a small aircraft."
Pros: "They had vegetarian options at every in-flight meal. Heaven! Flight staff were all extremely attentive and polite."
Cons: "Seats are cramped (as with most budget travel) and entertainment options were not very good. Movies were mainly very old and games not very interesting."
Pros: "It is a short trip and it is easy to get on and off the flight without too much hassle. Except when it is raining as you have to walk from the terminal to the plane. No Food or Entertainment is provided as it is such a short flight"
Cons: "There're unoccupied rows, but still pack passenger together instead of offering the empty seats to couples."
Cons: "Seats quite uncomfortable. Could feel the seat structure through the sestback."
Cons: "Flight was delayed .... it’s always delayed!!!! I just gate this airline but sometimes there just is no choice !"
Pros: "no concerns - had a seat free next to me which made it a pretty perfect flight"
Cons: "The cheapness of the airline. It is over 5 hours and we were offered a 5-ounce glass of water. Anything else you paid for. I find that very cheap and not considerate of your passengers as it is very crucial to stay hydrated on any flight especially one that is over 5 hours long. I have been on many different Airlines and this is the only one with this type of greedy attitude. Thank you for listening."
Pros: "I liked that all connections were made"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my luggage is lost."
Pros: "I had a very good experience. When you fly with Jetstar, you need to be aware of a few things: it is a no frills airline. Therefore, (1) you need to eat before you board, bring your own food, or pay for any food / drink on the flight, (2) you have virtually no luggage allowance. Make sure you call them and pay for your luggage BEFORE you go to the airport. The pre-pay prices are very reasonable, but they are dramatically more if you wait to add luggage until arrival at the airport. Overall, the personnel were very friendly, and it was a good flight...just make sure that you are aware of what I just mentioned."
Pros: "There is nothing to like about the trip - glad I made it."
Cons: "Baggage handling, treatment and flight crew should all be avoided"
Pros: "The lady at the check-in counter was very helpful!"
Cons: "The seat were pretty uncomfortable for a almost 4 hour flight. It felt like we were squeezed into a tuna can. Also was surprised there was not a movie playing or wifi available to pass the time on a long flight."
