Cons: "Repeatedly delayed, almost missed my next flight"

Pros: "The employees of Air New Zealand always make our trips excellent."
Cons: "I always have trouble hearing the announcements in the waiting areas at the airports. Why can't they (airports) fix that."

Pros: "Only a 25 minute flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very nice services"

Pros: ":)"

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

Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it."

Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."

Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "trivia was fun"

Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."

Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "A few more beverage options, juices perhaps."

Pros: "Very fun and attentive crew. Always food and drinks available. Very comfortable seats and lots of options for movies and activities."
Cons: "Nothing#"

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."

Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Free wine and cheese or choices of cookies—extra servings too."
Cons: "Seats are just standard—headrest part doesn’t adjust"

Pros: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"

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: "Great customer service. We flew on Air New Zealand and United, and the contrast was big. ANZ stewards showed much higher level of pride in serving their passengers."

Pros: "No bags on an international flight?! I had to pay $375 for 3 bags. Last minute changes with a layover, instead of a 3 hr flight it was a 6 hr flight and NO FOOD not even available to purchase.... very confusing very disappointed...."

Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I loved everything. From the friendly service to the comfort of the plane... it was fabulous for the 12 hours I was on board."
Cons: "Nothing. I had great service and a great flight the entire ride. Well done... Best airline I've ever flown with!"

Pros: "The flight departed on time, arrived on time - run of the mill stuff for Air NZ. Crew very good as per normal"
Cons: "I swear the seats are getting more and more 'scrunchy'. There are more appropriate places to get almost intimate with your seat buddy."

Pros: "The crew was great and the Hawaiian fruit drinks were a great introduction to Hawaii."
Cons: "The check in, the baggage drop off and pickup were very confusing and it made it a little stressful having to change flights. Boarding passes are also difficult to obtain through other airlines."

Cons: "Friendly and efficient"

Pros: "Snacks and drinks"
Cons: "No plug in"

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Check In Issues related to code share flight"

Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."

Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."

Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and seemed to enjoy their job. Appeared to be very accommodating for other passengers."
Cons: "No issues. Everything was great!"

Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."

Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"

Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything comfy spacious seats row 8"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"

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"

Cons: "Only issue was demand of passenger behind me that I not recline my seat back. I complied and chose not to bring it to crew's attention but was unable to travel comfortably for last leg of our 20+ hour trip."

Pros: "The capitan spoke and explain that was perfect taking into account that was a cloudy day."

Pros: "Nothing in particular--it was a short flight. I did appreciate that the crew went ahead and turned on the entertainment system even though it was a short transit time (we were on a plane meant for trans-Pacific travel--only reason it was available in the first place)."
Cons: "No complaints here."

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."

Pros: "The food was good, the accommodation, although it been a long flight everything was allright"

Pros: "Free cookie!"

Pros: "They put me on a flight to Auckland and then a flight to Wellington"
Cons: "Well I didn't even get on this flight because the plane haven't even left wellington when it was supposed to have been boarding in Sydney had to get two different flights"

Pros: "Great service and food. The people were super friendly. Cabin was spacious and comfortable. Great kiwi experience!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was on time, comfortable & smooth, online checkin was clear & easy. Helpful, responsive staff at every level. A million times better than my other travel leg with United (but that's nothe saying much...)"

Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "You had to pay for 3/4ths of the movies and shows. Kayak didn't specify whether I had a checked bag or not so when I got to the airport I had to fork over $120! I had no choice because I'm not going to leave my luggage behind. I was not pleased with this third party booking."

Pros: "Good comfort service"
Cons: "Hour and half taking off, many seats were unusable because of a chute malfunction"

Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Crew was professional and efficient."
Cons: "The seat had no lower back support and was really uncomfortable."

Pros: "Same as previous answer!"

Pros: "crew was very accommodating in seeking alternative storage options for overhead bags"
Cons: "there was a lack of overhead storage in the upstairs economy area"

Pros: "Great experience - love travelling Qantas on International flights"

Pros: "NOTHING - THE TRIP WAS A NIGHTMARE AND I WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH QANTAS AGAIN IF I CAN HELP IT. QANTAS WAS ALWAYS MY FIRST CHOICE BUT I WILL GO THE LONG WAY ROUND TO AVOID CREW & CONDITIONS LIKE THAT AGAIN. NO PILLOW,BLANKET OR TOILET PACK AND THEY RAN OUT OF FOOD. I WILL TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THIS!"
Cons: "Dark haired male crew member extremely rude except to two in row I58 & J58 who got 5 beers before departure,Food before everyone else, a gift pack from 1st class given before landing. I was refused extra bottled water. No entertainment the whole flight, Loud buzzing in galley 60H entire trip."

Pros: "Good food and snacks. Great boarding and off boarding experience. Appreciated the help by Qantas ground crew who helped me with my wheelchair in Sydney."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable economy seating. Crew came by infrequently but were attentive when they came."

Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Could not eat the in flight breakfast as both contained wheat (I’m coeliac)"

Cons: "I missed my flight. My flight from Melbourne with Qantas was delayed. I received an express connection ticket to go through Immigration, customs, etcetera. I ran, all for nothing. I should have known better, for sure. 2 hours is unrealistic. But this tickets shouldn't be offered, they give the impression that you can make it. And the staff in Melbourne, and the crew on the plane, all were extremely reassuring. I got to the gate of Alaska Airlines, the people there could only offer me a ticket two days later. And basically they said it was Qantas fault. Having almost no time and no clear way to communicate with Qantas (the 1800 number is useless), I had to book and pay a new ticket. Now I am going to try to contact Qantas for reimbursement but I am not optimistic. In summary, do not buy these types of tickets "in collaboration" with two companies. Especially if you make the connection in the US. It is a scam. 2 hours is no time. And even if you have 3 or 4 hours and there is a delay, you are basically on your own, and the companies give the responsibilities to each other."

Pros: "This flight was pretty roomy since I had a whole row to myself."
Cons: "When I checked in there were 2 employees behind the counter ignoring the line of people dropping off checked bags and 1 employee actually working to take checked bags. This is the third time in a row that this has happened on a Qantas flight for me."

Cons: "7 hrs late leaving, with postponements drip fed in 1 hr increments resulting in lots of hanging around and day completely wasted"

Cons: "Qantas left our luggage in Sydney. Once we were in Koh Samui it was up to Bangkok Airways to sort it out. The file reference we were given wasn't recognised by the Qantas website, the three phone numbers in Bangkok just gave a 'number disconnected' message and one was no answer. We had to cancel a planned event on day two and shop for clothes for a specific activity on day three. The only way to make contact with Qantas was via Instagram, Luggage did appear but so far no contact or apology from Qantas. We will not fly with Qantas again. Virgin Australia is our carrier of choice who outperform Qantas in every respect. This flight was gifted so we had no choice."

Pros: "Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Confusion in boarding"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours. We were stuck on the plane 2 of the 3 hours! Terrible!"

Pros: "The staff on the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I went to transfer flight to Perth there was an agent at the security who found that I had a wallet ninja and showed him it just threw it in the trash without asking me what my options were. Had an attitude when I asked what the heck? He was totally rude and ruined my perception of the Qantas staff."

Pros: "Very nice and speedy check in. Boarding ok. Food good but no fruit."
Cons: "slow entertainment system. Some shows and maps unavailable"

Pros: "Got a good price for RT ticket."
Cons: "Wasn’t fond of Qantas charging for seat selection for standard economy (international)."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food choices, great service."

Pros: "Pleasant, clean & comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The service, politeness of staff, the food."

Pros: "Staff of Quantas was helpful getting us on the plane after Emerites suspended our tickets We had to pay for a second set of tickets at a higher price on the day of our flight Lucky we made the flight"
Cons: "The seating was s cramped Glad the flight was only 3 hours"

Pros: "Crew was very courteous and understanding , helping us in best manners."

Pros: "Quantas rerouted our SFO - SDY non stop trouble LAX to pick up 28 Passengers!! So 270 Passengers ha to endure an additional 3grs 30 min. No compensation not even a drink voucher! Not up to Quantas standards."

Pros: "This flight was delayed and caused significant disruption to the remainder of our travel plans. We missed our next two flights and had to forfreit the cost of a hotel."

Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."

Pros: "I liked the empty seat beside me."
Cons: "No complaints, really. Wish I hadn't slept through the midnight snack. But I was able to sleep! That's a hit!"

Pros: "friendly crew, plenty of food, pillow provides extra comfort especially for long flight."

Pros: "Fabulous service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "Crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Bathroom for business class was out of order about 2hrs before landing, were told to use the bathroom in the back of plane!"

Pros: "I like ice cream (TipTop icecream). It was okay and much better then meal. The dark chocolate after meal was also good."
Cons: "I didn't like food in flight. I don't eat beef and the other option was not tasteful."

Cons: "Stop sending me these emails. I didn't even take this flight."

Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"

Pros: "Not many people on plane. Excellent food & staff couldn't do enough for you."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 2 hours with little information as to what the Elat was for. Seat mechanisms in premium economy not working effectively. Water dripping from above as plane started. Things the planes need a good overhaul!"

Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"

Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "Overall, one of the best international flying experiences I have ever had."

Pros: "Everything on time."

Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"

Pros: "Smooth and timely flight."
Cons: "The egg salad sandwich."

Pros: "Everything was wonderful, the crew were all very polite and boarding went very smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Loved the hot chocolate and chocolate."
Cons: "No choices available for dinner and other snacks not very good."

Cons: "The title says it all. This is the first time I ever flew Qantas, and I will try to never fly with them again. I saw one of the old, battle ax stewardesses actually physically shove an elderly Chinese woman who was wandering the aisle before leaving the gate. I mean, the woman should have been in her seat, but that was no reason to body-check her like Wayne Gretzky (or Ron Barassi, take your pick)! Totally unprofessional."

Cons: "The reason for an OK overall is that I left a personal item on the flight. I contacted the airline an hour after my flight landed and they showed no urgency to recover my item that had a lot of value to me. If they could have pages the cleaning crew on the ground, I'm sure I would have recovered my notebook. Instead they told me to check 4 hours later. When i did check 4 hours later, they told me to check in 2-3 days. When i checked in 2-3 days they asked if I filed a report. Which I wanted to on the same day but was told not needed. Very disappointing ground services."

Pros: "comfortable seats. Okay food. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Flights were almost all delayed. Was told I didnt have to pick up luggage during connecting flight, but did have to."

Pros: "I paid for an extra legroom seat - really makes a difference to getting some sleep on the two overnight legs of QF2, but you might want to bring your own blindfold and slippersocks as these are not provided in Economy."
Cons: "Gluten-free food in particular needn't be milk/lactose or meat free, and needn't be based around those gluten-free breads (Qantas GF bread was better than some others but still not great). There are good gluten free noodles, and most of the NORMAL meals would be find as long as gratuitous adding of wheat products to sauces was avoided (there is no excuse for soysauce or cornflour containing gluten - wheat and flour are additives that should not be present in ANY product that isn't specifically a wheat product). If the Asian meals, curry and rice, etc. were made with care they would be GF and many (Australian) restaurants offer GF variants of their meals. Still don't understand why they didn't give me real butter or real milk... Should have announced explicitly that we needed to pick up and clear and recheck baggage (on same tag) before our domestic flight."

Pros: "Prompt and efficient with helpful informative checkin (warned that luggage would probably need to be cleared and rechecked in Sydney). Reasonable choice of snacks (inc. crisps that were I think GF - same as in lounge)."
Cons: "BA (FF) lounge facilities at Tegel are pretty limited, but some reasonable snack choices (crisps, fruit, biscuits, ...)"

Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival."
Cons: "Staff at check-in incorrectly stated that we'd have to claim and re-check our bags in Sydney (for onward journey to Auckland on another Qantas flight). Created confusion for us since we've never had that situation when connecting from a domestic to an international flight in 20+ years of traveling."

Cons: "My gates changed at Sydney abruptly and some of the ones checking flights through at gate 1c were rude as the Tv screens said my flight was boarding when it wasnt."

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Horror ale checking and baggage procedure"

Cons: "Check and bag drop. Four people stood at the desks waiting til The exact min two hours before to drop bags. Time came they ignored everyone and they finally started. They were not that kind. They could take some lessons from NZ air."

Pros: "quick boarding process using both front and rear doors"
Cons: "check-in was stressful, baggage check didn’t start until 45 minutes before take-off"

Cons: "Don’t fly jet star. Huge hassle with bags."

Pros: "Very efficient boarding"
Cons: "Not made for talk people"

Cons: "Arbitrary singling out of passengers for baggage weight violations when majority of carry-on bags weren't to regulation for most passengers. Exorbitant fees for checking bags at gate."

Pros: "Good ticket price."
Cons: "They charge $60 per checked bag at check-in, and weight limits on carry-on luggage are unreasonably low."

Pros: "Excellent crew"

Pros: "Courteous staff from checking in to departure. Flight was short but on time and smooth. Perfect!"

Cons: "NO free beverages . . . definitely a "no frills" airline."

Pros: "Crew were patient & helpful"
Cons: "The fact that both my recent Jetstar flights have been delayed (to & from Rarotonga, and today’s flight was so late I missed my connecting flight & it meant a disadvantage to my family plus $221 extra for me to buy another ticket."

Pros: "The pilot made such a smooth landing, it was one of the best I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Probably just the delay and time management for boarding"

Pros: "Early departure, smooth operation, efficient service"
Cons: "Seats a bit close for Clive’s 6 foot frame"

Cons: "Pity we paid for Qantas but still has JetStar service with pay for all drinks and food."

Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask. The flight was on time."
Cons: "It was a flight we've done heaps before. It would be nice to have all luggage actually transferred through from Napier to Manchester as it's an added challenge when also carting babies around."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "$$ for a beverage. Expensive baggage fees"

Pros: "The colour orange"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours with no notice until 15 minutes before boarding. Missed event near Auckland because of delay... but I got a $8 food voucher to make things right."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time Front and back entrances"
Cons: "Charge for everything- checked bag(s), soft drinks, even peanuts Leg Space limited"

Pros: "No mess airline, fast and efficient"

Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Very expensive luggage prices Little, to no leg room. Crew member said they’d get me water..never did."

Pros: "nothing to complain. everything is good."
Cons: "none."

Cons: "The delay of 2 1/2 hours created havoc and proved to be very expensive for me. El write a letter on this in a couple of days."

Cons: "I made a mistake on booking. Called them immediately. Not the least bit helpful of sympathetic. Ridiculous baggage policy and charges. Will avoid this airline in the future unless it's an emergency."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay for checked baggage when other people got on with more baggage than me. It’s a scam."

Cons: "Seats were not comfortable Baggage rules - I overpaid for baggage in advance Carry on weight should be reconsidered (limit should increase)"

Pros: "Check in was fast and friendly. You MUST buy checked luggage on line before you get to the airport or you will pay. We did this and had no problems at all. Also get there early and be nice. Were told our CPAPs would count as part of our free carry on allowance and were infuriated as this has NEV"
Cons: "Misinformation on CPAP policy."

Cons: "They damaged our luggage"

Pros: "Great price."

Pros: "Didn't realize we had to purchase baggage in advance. Doubled the cost of the flight. The attendant did move us to exit row since we paid so much, but it wasn't clear when purchasing the tickets that you needed to by your baggage in advance"

Pros: "The crew was courteous and nice."
Cons: "We were charged $100 per bag and $50 per Kg over the weight limit. Baggage fees were not clearly listed when booking this flight. We found out about the cost when we were checking in to board. Jetstar should state up front in the flight cost area about their baggage fees, not hidden in the fine print. A side note, everything on the flight cost extra; water, Wi-Fi, etc. Once the added fees are calculated into the cost, Jetstar is not cheaper than the other airlines."

Pros: "Easy boarding in Queenstown and the flight staff was friendly and helpfull."
Cons: "Thier bag fees are outragous. It was extreemly difficult to find thier allowances online and we ended up paying more than our ticket price to check our bags. If it was more clear what the fees are, we would not have chosen Jetstar. I would recomend going with New Zealand Air over Jetstar hands down."

Pros: "Service was awesome0000"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "Crew very helpful thanks. A bit rough to have to pay 4 baggage in top of paying 4 flight.On international flights, yr baggage is included in the price ."

Cons: "Overcharged for baggage. $535 at the airport. Very surprised at the charge. I thought $50-$60 a bag...more like $135 a bag."

Pros: "I checked in online and wasn't able to add my bags to my reservation, so figured I would do it when I got to the airport. Big mistake. It cost me NZ$ 215 to heck my two bags (one was admittedly heavy, but that is still an insane amount). I knew I would have to pay for bags but more money because of something that I was unable to adress is absurd."

Pros: "The fare was cheap and my body physically was moved from the origin to the destination..."
Cons: "The website and customer service are annoyingly difficult to use, potentially designed to force you to pay more for extras like bags. For instance, if you pay for your bag ahead of time, it is meant to be cheaper. I tried to pay for my bag ahead of time and it took me to a check-in page. I tried multiple times but only ever got to the same check-in page. Figuring that perhaps I needed to check in first, I did this step only to find that if you pay for your bag after check in, it costs more money!! On the return trip, I felt wiser so I refused to fill in the check-in page before paying for baggage. I exhausted every possible link on their website and ultimately had to call customer service. This took an annoyingly long time. I was told when I tried to pay for a 15kg bag that they had run out of space on the plane and I couldn't pay for this; however, I COULD pay for a 20kg bag at a higher price. WHAT? As I was told this was my only option, I took it, but the logic defies reason and makes me conclude that their systems are simply designed to force you to pay for extras. If I had it to do over, I would just book Air New Zealand for an extra $50-- it would save me plenty of time and hassle."

Pros: "We selected this flight with no knowledge of this airline, as we were coming from the states. Being international traveling for three weeks obviously we had some luggage with us. This domestic flight does not allow any free check in, and you are only allowed 7 kg as a carry-on. You also have to pre-pay for your check in baggage before you get to the airport otherwise you are charged three times the price. If you don't know all of this before you go, you will be in big trouble. I do not recommend this airline for international travelers."

Cons: "Fees for everything. By the time you get what you want, you end up paying double advertised price"

Pros: "Check in was quick, but our flight was delayed. We received an email notification which helped. Of course we wish the flight wasn't delayed but having an extra hour in queenstown is amazing."
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "Easy, efficient"
Cons: "Very expensive"

Pros: "quick boarding options."
Cons: "No snacks or drink options. Also I think paying for luggage is a lot more than it should be, especially if not done ahead of time. Seats are not that comfortable."

Cons: "We were charged $215 at check in to check our luggage because we hadn't "ticked" that we'd be bringing luggage when we purchased our tickets. We purchased our tickets on Kayak and never were we warned or even been informed that this would be the case. The fee for baggage turned out to be $70 per bag plus $15 per Kg for each Kg over 15 Kg. Which is absurd. Any regular flight allows bag up to 23 Kg before additional charges. This is extortion. Yet there was nothing we could do unless we wanted to leave our bags in Queenstown."

Pros: "Initial low fare"
Cons: "Over charge for baggage when checking at airport Actually charge for WATER on flight."

Pros: "Nothing!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Ripped me and my sis off for over 120 bucks in luggage fees!!!! No one could explain ability to pay online for a lot less!!!!! So freaking unacceptable!!!!! Plus they damaged a new bag and tell me they aren't liable!!!! Don't ever buy a ticket with JETSTAR! Freaking waste of money! Stick with air New Zealand"

Pros: "Easy booking"
Cons: "Maybe"

Cons: "They have a baggage racket where they trick you in to checking your luggage at the airport to charge you $70NZD at the counter not to mention the staff are less than helpful. Also, the seats are so thin you can feel the person behind you breath. I'd give it zero starts if I could."

Cons: "I made a small gift purchase in Queenstown and they were going to charge me $70 to put it under the plane. They could have easily put it in a small box, put it under the plane, and charge me $25 at the most for it. Instead I had to give it to the clerk at the counter because I only paid $20 for the item. I didn't mind having to put it under the plane but for $70?"

Pros: "Efficient. Friendly. On time."
Cons: "Lack of leg room like all airlines"

Cons: "Flight delayed 3+ hours"

Cons: "M"
