Pros: "The flight was on time, staff courteous and we made good time to the destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the informati N at the gate kept changing. Regular announcements that we would board in 10 Minutes. And hen we didn’t and then another announcement of 10 minutes etc Process was confusing. Four different lines with signage that was too low to be seen by anyone except those who were up front. Employees were flustered and having arguments on phone in presence of those boarding. Led to more chaos and uneasiness"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above. Along with attmpeting to get boarding passes in LAX staff could not do in IAD was unpleasant as lady kept asking for boarding passes then said she needs a print of the intineray"
Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"
Pros: "The entire crew was excellent in all areas and all the time even on a 14 hour flight that had been delayed for about 20 hours."
Cons: "When we arrived in Auckland very late, Air New Zealand out me up in a third rate hotel in a very bad part of the city with little to no communication on how to get back to the airport the next day. The customer service number I was given, was mo help at all. Flights were great, but the way they handled the unexpected was very poorly done."
Pros: "Entertainment was great and even leg room was decent for economy seating"
Cons: "There are no personal air vents. I was sweating for 3/4 of the flight and had to ask for the air to be turned down 3 times. The air vents they do have point inwards and do not get the window seats at all. Hope the return flight is better"
Pros: "Skycouch a MUST for long haul flights."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and went out of their way to do what they could to make everyone happy and comfortable."

Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive. This puts a huge damper on our honeymoon."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being sel-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity."
Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."
Pros: "The usual "shuttle" flight between chc and akl."
Cons: "Unlike other international flights, Air New Zealand only allows 1 check in luggage per person instead of 2. Most other international airlines allow 2 check in luggage. But otherwise it was good and the service was ok, not as much food selection as other airlines but the crew are very nice and the airline is very clean."
Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and so accommodating. They were all quickly available during the entire 14 hour flight, and always had a smile. I thought the food was nice as well, and there were so many entertainment options."
Cons: "Having a bit more room during such a long flight would have been nice!"
Pros: "As has been my prior experience with Air New Zealand, I found the trip to be virtually flawless. The boarding process was smooth and efficient, the crew was great and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job, the food was good, and I had lots of choices on the IFE system. For flying cattle class on a 15 hour flight, I arrived reasonably rested and content."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the extra $60 I had to pay in order to get a window seat got me just that. There was no additional room either length- or width-wise and no other advantages other than the window. I would not pay for that "privilege" again and I'm sorry to see that ANZ has stooped to the level of its American counterparts."
Pros: "Left on time. And I got 2 snacks."
Pros: "It was a short flight :)"
Cons: "- seat space is tiny, and I'm 6'2" - plane was full to the brim - in-seat TV was annoying: either you paid for something, or it kept turning on and showing advertising - engine noise was terrible. I needed to use noise-cancelling headphones just to hear myself think. - sat on the tarmac in SFO for 1/2 hour before takeoff"
Pros: "The staff was nice."
Cons: "No room, It was painful for someone with nerve damage and severe arthritis to even get to a seat."
Pros: "The crew and plane was tops"
Cons: "It is very long, but that is no reflection on you."
Pros: "The service was very nice. The food was good. The entertainment choices were good as well."
Cons: "The seating was to crowded, you could tell that an extra seat was added in the middle section. What was once three seats was now four. Very disapointing. A deal breaker for long flights."
Cons: "The captain was late to the airport so our flight was delayed"
Cons: "Bulkhead seating terrible for long haul flight"
Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Crew, cleanliness, movies"
Cons: "Meals were so-so."
Pros: "We flew premium economy. The staff was wonderful great first experience! I really wish the other three crews could have kept this momentum going as my other flights with ANZ were less than thrilling! The flight attendant staff was phenomenal on my iah to akl leg. My crew on the akl to iah leg. Brandon gave the initial intro and seemed to follow the original crews standards. Unfortunately, we had an older flight attendant who seemed less than thrilled to be with us this flight."
Cons: "I wish I could give a true rating of ANZ as their crews apparently don't follow any protocol for providing the same exceptional service received on my maiden flight with them."
Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"
Pros: "We made our connection, just barely."
Cons: "Faulty equipment presented as weather problems caused almost hour delay."
Pros: "Food, space, service. Arrived much more rested than in economy."
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "It is a toss up which airline has more uncomfortable seats, you or United. Leg room is not great and some padding would be nice."
Pros: "The flight is long but is made better by having the in flight entertainment, food, and drinks for free. They don't nickel and dime you like united does"
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Le confort des sièges, la propreté de l'avion, la gentillesse du personnel à bord."
Pros: "Shorter layover times with connecting flights compared with flying through LA. Aircraft had numerous toilets with great service and food. Water was brought around at regular intervals through out the entire flight. Something one appreciates when travelling with an Airline that does not offer this level of service Keep it up Air NZ"
Cons: "Economy seating is to tight and restrictive for a flight of 14-15 hours. If Airlines are going to offer this length and longer flight times they need to look at the spacing of there seating!!"
