Airline reviews

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

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: ":)"

Pros: "Good quick flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. With decent leg room and nice seats. The in flight entertainment was excellent. As was the crews efficient and professional service. Top star"

Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."

Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

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."

Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."

Pros: "Crew were lovely."
Cons: "Had a lot of hassle adding baggage to this leg of my trip on booking. At check in i was asked to pay $130 for baggage, which was no surprise. Luckily Air New Zealand ground staff sorted it out and I did not have to pay. I will book direct with the airlines next time."

Pros: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."

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: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"

Pros: "Plz could u guys add Korean subtitle to movie or tv . Because when i was boarding, i couldn't find any Korean subtitle. I can understand English so that's find. But it let me think u guys don't really care Korean market ."

Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."

Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."

Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"

Overall a superior experience."

Cons: "So cramped! No leg room"

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."
