Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."
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: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Friendly, polite helpful"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."

Cons: "It is very long, but that is no reflection on you."
Pros: "Flight was on time, airplane was clean, flight attendants friendly and attentive. Very pleasant flying experience"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."
Pros: "The business class on Air New Zealand is the space and comfort level all airlines should have in all classes of seating. I could comfortably fly to Europe from California in business class on this airline."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was superb. The staff was very nice, the seating area was spacious and relaxing and the lights inside were super fun! Everything ran on time and the food was actually quite good."
Cons: "My dead would not recline, but I would not find any fault with my flight even with that."
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: "Quick, efficient, friendly service"
Cons: "Fixed arm rests in the bassinet row. We had extra seats which was a lovely surprise but it was not much help as the arm rests don't move. Won't pay for that row again as my bub was just a bit too heavy for the bassinet."
Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."
Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"
Cons: "Jam packed flight. Qantas is squeezing people in and squeezing the profits. Happening way to frequently now."

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Window seat.... 9A ..... no window......"
Pros: "great crew"
Cons: "flight delayed - but that happens..."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "WiFi was intermittent and if Qantas is going to rely on us to bring the equipment then they better get the service reliability right. I don’t see ticket prices or wine quality improving by passing entertainment infrastructure on to us..."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, food delicious, seats comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
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"

Cons: "Boarding was slow and disorganised, food was cold and tasteless (chicken noodle) not helped that I had to wait for cutlery to be able to eat it"

Cons: "Smallish serves of food (dinner & light breakfast) for a long flight"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."

Pros: "Arrived alive."
Cons: "Sketchy plane. Too many speed changes. Left late."
Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."
Pros: "I’ve taken Qantas once before and it made my trip from the US ato AU so much more relaxing. I just took Qantas again and was even more blown away with everything. The crew members are extremely nice and are always present to help you with something you may need."
Cons: "nothing. all good things!"
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."

Cons: "Larger less cramped jet. Toilets at rear and everytime someone tried to move around a guy standing in aisle next to me talking to another passenger i got hit. After about the 3rd time i almost landed in the back of the seat infront of me. I had words and he moved. Couldnt put seat back as not enough room. Got off jet with neck cramped...got on jet via rear door after walk and wait about 10 minutes on hot tarnac with sun belting into back of the unfortunate rear seaters...hostess apologised but i felt sorry for any older/ sick people. We were cooking on a hot plate like prawns !!!"
Pros: "The flight went well. The crew was accommodating."
Cons: "A bigger, more comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "I went online to put that I needed gluten free food and when everyone else was getting their food I was told no gluten free food on domestic flights so I got no food. You need to take that option off of your website if you don’t intend to serve people with celiac."

Pros: "Business class seats require improvement"
Pros: "Short flight, and getting a meal made it go faster"

Cons: "Not bloody much. I'm passed I'm not with my wife now"
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "This was the only airline you had to pay for a soft drink."
Pros: "The crew service was amazing. The flight attendant went the extra mile and actually put another blanket on me as I slept, which was a comforting extra touch. This was in Business Class."
Cons: "For a night flight of 4 hours duration, the business class meal service should be express, to maximize opportunity to sleep."
Pros: "Crew very welcoming and helpful"
Cons: "Older seats mean less comfort for such a long flight"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "The plane was freezing and no entertainment"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Economy is most often how I connect. Certainty felt a little more upgraded this flight"
Cons: "Efficiency, schedule retained, in flight entertainment."
Pros: "I like that the plane landed safely. The crew on the plane were nice and the food was good for airplane food. There seemed to be an abundance of entertainment options but I was working so didn't really get a chance to use them. Staff on board the plane and on board experience was great."
Cons: "The people who were working at the front desk at check in seemed to be very inconvenienced by the fact I was checking into my flight, which seems like it's supposed to be their jobs, if I'm not mistaken. I had golf clubs and was told to wait at a desk were I stood for 10 mins while a woman looked at the computer, not looking up from it in the whole time. There was another lady checking clubs too, and you would thing it was the fist time they had ever had to check golf clubs into a flight; I assume that's not true."
Pros: "several options for lunch, new terminal in perth, friendly crew, comfortable chair, good entertainment selection, on time"
Pros: "High degree of professionalism and friendly service."
Pros: "VA ticketing representatives were as helpful as they could be once we figured out why my reservation wasn't popping up. They let me know BYOjet had charged me, but had not yet paid VA for my flight to Sydney so my reservation was on hold and I needed to contact BYOjet."
Cons: "BYOjet charged my card $1300 but cancelled my reservation because they needed card authorization (which they did not notify me!) After going back and forth with BYOjet for 72 minutes I ended up having to purchase a seperate ticket at the VA counter for $299 because BYOjet has the WORST customer service ever."
Cons: "Virgin bumped my family (myself, wife, 11yo son) from flight due to a downsize in aircraft. Only notification was email at 11pm previous evening, which we didn't see. We arrived at airport to find out we were ticketed on flight leaving 10:55PM rather than 11:35AM, and new flight routed through Sydney rather than non-stop. Virgin offered no compensation for getting us to Melbourne a day late on a worse flight. Would not pay for hotel for a stay overnight in Perth to take alternative flight in morning."
Cons: "rude check in staff poor safety issues no comms when diverted to another airport damaged luggage AGAIN..."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Vegetarian option and hot food very important especially for elderly people."
Pros: "Staff were courteous. Plane was clean and on time. Luggage came off in a timely manner."
Cons: "Same entertainment choices to/from flights. Not very good up to date choices of films. Food was abominable. What happened to serving trays with an assortment of goodies? Food portion was incredibly small. On long flights across country it would be nice to have built in screens for movies."
Cons: "no entertainment only back lab was available long ques i only fly virgin at least 6 x times a year"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Beef dish was mainly rice with insufficient meat or gravy to flavour the rice and there were no vegetables. Entertainment selection was of little choice with documentaries that were not only unsuitable for children but in my opinion unsatisfactory for adults."
Cons: "TVE information they sent me to the email about the airport terminal was confusing: there is not terminal D un perth airport."
Pros: "Fantastic service!"
Cons: "Delay was not appreciated with a fidgety 2 year old"
Pros: "Automatic check-in was really easy to use and everything worked very well and looked modern and stylish. Flight was great, very smooth, good service and the airplane was in great condition. Luggage arrived on the belt very quick after landing."

Pros: "Food was good and service excellent as was entertainment"
Cons: "Just cold air conditioning. My feet froze"
Cons: "All perfect recomendable thanks"

Cons: "They have crazy expensive fees for luggage if over weight..I will not choose them again"
Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "No free checked bags. No free drinks - not even water. Limited weight for carryon bags. Choosing a seat costs extra money."
Pros: "Check in was good...despite not being allocated seat i was charged for."
Cons: "Flight late...I am told as usual. Paid for a seat and was given another. Where is my refund. No one stuffed around me paid. Onboard staff seemed in control but arrogant"
Pros: "The crew were amazing."
Cons: "The cost to check baggage was very high and hard to complete ahead of time."
Pros: "Was a smaller aircraft and a spacious flight"
Cons: "No complimentary food or snack or drinks!!"
Pros: "the pilot greeted and said goodbye to everyone"
Cons: "they don't offer refreshments to everyone, you have to ask for them"
Pros: "The first flight (Perth to Melbourne) was delayed 45 minutes and left the bay at 2:20am. Bother flights were on an old A320 plane, so no TV, seat pockets, plug sockets or USB outlets. I was also informed that I had to pick my luggage up at baggage claim in Melbourne and re-Check-in even though I had booked through to Ayers Rock. The re-check-in is a way to get money from clients because I was charged $60AUD for an overweight baggage. Strange, because I was never asked about it in Perth."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Baggage policies were not clear. I thought you got one carry on and one checked bag up to 20 kg. But then when checking in online, it appeared you needed to pay for baggage based on weight. I tried to do it online, but wouldn't accept my payment. Got to airport, long line, tried to use kiosk to complete check in, wouldn't allow me to. Waited in line, only to be told I had a payment due and had to go to service desk. My friend was checking in with me, and did not have to pay for luggage. Meanwhile the gate agent changed her mind, said she could accept my payment there, then we had to go through the exercise of lightening our carry ons (which we had made heavier to avoid excess baggage fee). So I ended up paying for bags, friend did not, yet we had the same bags/weights. Flight was delayed 15 minutes per the kiosk, when asked gate agent, she said it was not, but in reality it was. not a pleasant experience, policies not clear and not uniformly enforced. Flight itself was ok. I probably will not fly Jetstar again."
Cons: "My main complaint is what others describe, the luggage charge. However, for me it was 100 dollars per bag or an additional 200 dollars. By that time I could not change flights as was traveling with others. What was going to be a modest flight charge turned out to be a hefty one. The flight otherwise was good to excellent."
Pros: "cheap bare bones flights do the job for short jaunts. But their automated on line customer service is abysmal!"
Cons: "We were charged $225 nzd for our luggage at the airport which was much more than our plane tickets."
Cons: "Baggage and seating policy."
Pros: "They charged us almost $400 at the airport for two bags under 20kg. Absolutely ridiculous. They were doing math on a calculator and paper. So unprofessional and cost almost as much as one of our tickets"
Cons: "It was horrible and a total hoax of an airline"
Pros: "Out Jetstar flight from Cairns arrived late and we had unacceptable assistance to make our connecting flight to Queenstown. Missed our flight. Rebooked ourselves for tomorrow. Cost us $1000."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Flight took off late. 7kg for a carry on is hard to do."
Pros: "No redeeming factors with awful customer service. I missed my connecting flight due to another flight being late. As a result, I called them to notify them I would not be able to make the flight and asked to switch flights. After explaining the situation, they refused to waive the flight change fee and even charged additional fees even though I had no control of the situation. They took advantage of the situation I was forced into and have no ethics. Absolute garbage."
Cons: "See above. A terrible airline who treats paying customers with disrespect and takes advantage of the situation. I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "This was the our first time flying with Jetstar a we were very pleased. The loading process was great quick and smooth. Its unbelievable to think that more airlines do not load back to front. The crew was extremely nice and cheerful and made the experience a great one for my wife and I."
Pros: "Nice and smooth flight."
Cons: "I wished the seats were bigger a bit"
Pros: "Smooth quick flight!"
Cons: "Wish we had known you don't even get a free cup of soda, water, or coffee.. But a short flight so was ok... No frills, cramped, but ok for a short trip! (husband is 6.1 feet and couldn't put knees together in front of him)"
Cons: "This was the least legroom I've ever had in a plane. The seats were so close together that they hardly reclined at all. This was very disappointing since we were on a red-eye that left at midnight. Most uncomfortable I've ever been on a plane. I was also surprised to see trash in most of the seat pockets around where I was seated."
Pros: "Value"
Cons: "Baggage fees, but that is to be expected now"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Just because we bought the luggage at the airport instead of online they charged us MORE THAN FOUR TIMES THE PRICE for our luggage. It ended up being more than the cost of two return flights combined!!!! Avoid Jetstar like the plague that they are."
Pros: "Not but that stood out that was good. The crew es nice."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and everything including water is at an additional cost. The baggage is extra unless you are just taking the clothes on you back."
Pros: "Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket. Kayak didn't do a great job at explaining how to secure multiple baggage pieces in advance. Kayak provided no information on meal/drink advance order/purchase options. This was my fort time flying this airline and I didn't know what to expect. We experienced a mechanical issue feat but the pilot was great at providing updates. We were later delayed due to another aircrafts gas spill on the tarmac. Again, great communication from the flight deck. We were able to make up the time. Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket. Kayak didn't do a great job at explaining how to secure multiple baggage pieces in advance. Kayak provided no information on meal/drink advance order/purchase options. This was my fort time flying this airline and I didn't know what to expect. We experienced a mechanical issue feat but the pilot was great at providing updates.

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Baggage policy needs to change. 7 kg limit on carryon combined bag and hand bag. I carried a very small suitcase, 10 kg, this cost an extra 100 dollars return!. Chose another airline. Aircraft was filthy, they could do so much better."
Cons: "I was very upset to have to pay over 200 for checked luggage. Kayak never gave me the option to add a bag when I booked this trip. That would've allowed me to save money. I was very upset"
Cons: "They canceled my flight last minute, for no reason, and didn't reimburse me the cost of the last minute flight I was then forced to book on another airline. I will never book with Jetstar again."
Cons: "Worst flight ever, no leg room, no free glass of water even, and got raped on luggage charges, won't fly with them again."
Cons: "They look like they are offering a cheap price, but then charge you $160 NZ per bag. Only 7k allowed per carry on & they give no leeway. Don't even get complementary coffee or tea. No leg room seats are so crammed together. Take another airline you will save in the long run."
Pros: "Great flight- on-time"
Cons: "One very surly flight attendant gave me a glass of hot water whem I refused to pay for a water bottle Cold water should be free Also charged us a fortune for a checked bag - $160 Australian dollars- ridiculous"
Pros: "Had to pay $160 dollars for baggage. Did not specify that baggage was not included. Staff at the airport told us that how jetstar makes their money. I feel like if somebody stole money from me. Will try to fight to take that payment of my credit card. It is not written anything that your baggage is not included."
Cons: "Got charged 160 for a checked bag because I did not pre pay ahead of time online. What a scam! Horrible experience. Was held hostage at the airport. Shame on you Quantas."
Pros: "Nothing. JetStar used unethical business practices to force us to pay $160 dollars for our baggage. Usually baggage costs $13. They clearly have pulled this extortion trick on customers many times before. We were left to choose between abandoning all of our clothing and souvenirs and other possessions, or paying them an absurdly high fee. So we didn't really have much choice. F JetStar. I'll never fly with them again. If you're smart you won't either."
Pros: "Hidden fees, terrible online mobile platform, crazy pricing (they told me to book baggage early so it's cheaper--my friends booked theirs the night after I did and paid less than half of what I did), bizarre processss, and a delay resulting from some sort of snack issue. Seats were uncomfortable as well. Probably the most stressful flying experience I have ever had."
Cons: "Had to pay a surcharge for bags that was not clear at the time of booking, was supposed to be "per bag" but the airline did us a favor and only charged us for one bag. While that seems nice, it's clear it's a bogus charge if rules don't need to be followed. One flight the baggage fee was $50, another was $160 - with these costs included they are actually more expensive than other airlines. Took an international flight and all food and drinks on the flight had to be purchased, pretty ridiculous that the airline does not include water over a three hour travel time."
Cons: "Prior to my departure date, I tried to buy additional luggage allowance online. I received several website errors that prevented me from doing so before heading to the airport for my flight. Upon telling the service desk about my issue, I encountered poor customer service from the service desk. Additionally, once onboard the aircraft, it was evident it had not been cleaned prior to my scheduled flight. My seat was filled with snack crumbs and rubbish."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "we landed in christchurch instead and I had to drive 7 hours to queenstown overnight to make it for the next day. it was awful. no compensation."
Pros: "Horrible service, rude staff, even when the plane was rerouted because of a gps issue, the staff was horrendous. Would never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "They charged $165 NZD (~$120 USD) for one checkin luggage."
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, which was as long as the flight duration (2 hour flight from Auckland to Queenstown). Charged us $70 per bag at check-in...we were told that because we didn't pre-coordinate our bags online we were being charged extra. Kayak made no mention of this policy when purchasing tickets or in the itinerary provided. The airline worker at the counter said mentioned "yeah this happens to foreigners all the time"...which makes it pretty blatantly a targeting scheme on foreigners who have no choice but to pay the inflated bag fees."
Pros: "Comfortable seats,timeliness"
Cons: "Very upset about the over $400.00 charge for our two carry on luggage that were both only a little over 20 k. That was more than what we paid for the flight. I feel that Jet Star gouged us! We've never paid that much for chacked luggage! Never offered water, oh you could pay $4.00 for a cup of cola."
Pros: "Flight was delayed because of not enough crew"
Pros: "The process from baggage check-in to boarding was seamless!"
Cons: "Baggage fees were not included in the original cost."
Pros: "Checking in was a breeze. There wasn't any door or entertainment we tried to rate. crew was very good."
Cons: "Was surprised that we had to pay for water. Seats were a bit tighter than most airlines. My husband and my arms overlapped in the seats."
Pros: "stunning scenery of the southern alps... which had nothing to do with jetstar."
Cons: "where to begin... 1) $455 in baggage charges. yes, you read that right. 2 tickets cost $150. bags cost $450. absurd. enough said. we were connecting from an international flight, 2 adults and a toddler. it's not like we had an obscene amount of luggage. 2) so i tried to buy an extra seat (we were traveling with our 23-month old son)... buying an extra ticket and baggage allowance with it would have cost $100 less than the baggage charge with 2 tickets. But they would not allow this. 3) they would, however, block the seat next to us for free, so it would remain empty for my son. So we were not allowed to buy it, but they would keep it free for us. 4) we get on the plane, and the seat next to us is not blocked... someone else sits in it. if the plane is full, that makes perfect sense... but the plane wasn't full.. there were 20 empty seats. 5) so my son is unhappy because he wants his own seat, we're crammed into a full row... and there's a completely empty row behind us. So I ask the flight attendant if we can move. She says no, not until after take-off... first person to get there wins. Really? So, thank you but no thank you to jet star. at every opportunity they might have had to make our trip easier... they failed. miserably."
Cons: "The carry-on baggage limits are small (one bag maximum as opposed to most airlines that allow one bag and a personal item). The fee for checking a bag once at the airport is insane ($160 AUD). Will never fly Jetstar again. Easily worth the extra few dollars to fly Virgin or Air NZ."
Pros: "PRICE"
Cons: "Seat in front was up against my knees, and it was very hot on the plan. Pay the extra if traveling anymore than a few hours."
Cons: "The bogan passengers"
