I really appreciated the check in service at Heathrow airport - amazing they checked our luggage and gave our passes through to Chch NZ. Chairs were comfortable. Good leg room. While we appreciate the lounge, they could have offered a wider range of options (a few more vegan options).

I really appreciated the check in service at Heathrow airport - amazing they checked our luggage and gave our passes through to Chch NZ. Chairs were comfortable. Good leg room. While we appreciate the lounge, they could have offered a wider range of options (a few more vegan options).

Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Pros: "Very helpful in getting on board luggage stowed, attractive interior"
Cons: "Scheduling was poor (turned up lighting far early than needed) and made too many and too loud of general announcements through the night for an overnight flight."
Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"
Pros: "Easy flight."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was very cold so the cabin could have been warmer"
Pros: "Seat hard on older aircraft, needs new cushioning on seat"
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Small puddle jumper, but everything was well organized."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."
Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"
Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."
Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"
Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"
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: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"
Pros: "Ditto to the above!!!"
Cons: "The on ground experience in Los Angeles was horrible (not Air New Zealand's fault). Made our plane (a scheduled flight?) park well over a mile from the terminals and bus passengers into customs. LA Customs is always a hassle, way too long of lines and agents with an attitude. One custom officer (the final check through) was great, the rest were grouches."
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"
Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"
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!"
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."
Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"
Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."
Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."
Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."
Pros: "Everything FA even got our bags out while taxiing into gate"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."
Pros: "These guys are the best!"
Cons: "Flight was too short"
Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"
Pros: "Quick, efficient service"
Pros: "No complaints at all"
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: "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: "Service and attitude superb"
Cons: "comfort and seats. On the flight back, although crowded, it would have been nice to have the assistance that 3 large guys could have used to find a seat. Spent the entire flight sweating between two large gentlemen. Luckily, they were polite and we all managed."
Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."
Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."
Pros: "Nice amenities, very efficient"
Cons: "Seats are too small, uncomfortable. We had a 50 minute delay in departure."
Cons: "This is my 2nd International Flight and Qantas outrated the other airline 100x’s over. Thank you"
Cons: "The flight from Cairns to JFK that I originally purchased was supposed to be 7 hours of travel time less than what I actually ended up with. The airline changed my flights 4 times after originally booking."
Pros: "Great seats on the 787 dreamliner"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "efficient, entertainment"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Lovely staff and great food"
Cons: "There was no in-seat entertainment and we weren’t advised of this in advance"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic!"
Pros: "The seat is narrow compare with other airlines."
Pros: "Crew very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "On time flight ,no problems."
Cons: "All was fine."
Pros: "seats - very comfy flat bed to use on overnight flight"
Cons: "too warm, hard to sleep"
Pros: "The food choices were lovely, plenty of bathrooms and touch screen entertainment (albeit with an outdated feeling and clunky interface.) The skycam was the best part of the entertainment interface options, giving you an outside view of the plane at all times from a camera at the top of the plane tail. Watching the plane during its descent and landing was very cool."
Cons: "I’ve flown in tight-spaced economy seats before, but the lack of space to even bend over to reach items on the floor was extreme on this plane and unacceptable for a 15+ hour flight. It truly felt like a straightjacket. Serious acrobatics were required to reach items on the floor. The tray table would also fly down on its own, the lever holding it would slide free while I was sleeping. There was no wifi at all, not even for using the qantas apps. My fiancé flew on Virgin the week before and was able to purchase wifi and stay in touch with me for $19 for the duration of the flight. Even my flight earlier this year with Qantas on the Dreamliner lacked usable wifi, but the experience of the Dreamliner plane itself was wonderful. In addition, the usb ports on the end of the armrests weren’t working. I feel it should be part of the safety briefing to point out where the usable power points are, given how vital charged phones are these days for boarding passes, reaching loved ones and entertainment when the wifi isn’t working. I didn’t realize there was a plug for laptops/ block plugs until I asked about the USB ports not working until the last 2 hours of the flight. The location of that was somewhere few would notice or look if not explicitly told. This will be the last time I ever book with Qantas when an a380 model is involved, unless great overhauls and updates are completed. Economy should not lack basic ergonomic comforts and while I’ve spent years touting my love for Qantas, having had wonderful experiences in the past, this one fell far below what I had come to expect from the Qantas name."
Pros: "Great service, very attentive with my 2.5yo toddler. Also the baby change rooms in the Business Lounge were some of the best I've ever used."
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."
Pros: "I was very surprised that a short domestic flight offered a free drink and dinner service."
Cons: "My only fault was that they didn’t offer a non meat option on their selection."
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Baggage arrived late."
Pros: "Pillows were comfy, seats reclined to a comfy position"
Pros: "The flight attendants gotta be the happiest people in the biz. I didn't want to be there, but that they did made my whole trip better."
Cons: "Way too cramp even for airplane standards. When food was served, it’d take at least 30 minutes for the flight attendants to collect rubbish, and since the seats are so small and I can’t keep the tray table open without pinching my spleen, it was really terrible. I paid extra for an aisle seat and was told there weren’t any."
Pros: "The staff are some of the best in the sky"
Cons: "The usual riff raff amongst passengers"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive. They worked hard to make the long flight as enjoyable as possible. The food was bland and uninspired. The in seat entertainment had a great variety though it stopped working with about an hour to go so that was frustrating."
Pros: "freindly staff."
Cons: "First I wasn't told I'd be going domestic . Arrived at the airport 4:30 to catch the internation flight @7:20. Funny thing is I was the only person around. There was the changing of shifts for ground & cleaning etc. No ticket booths. Put passport in kiosk,it said basically no. Finally a ticket agent showed up. She tried my passport ,and nothing. Checked threw the computer & it said leaving out of domestic. Go down to the end of the hall, can check in there. It's Qantas alright, not open till 7:00. Start to panic a bit. Stopped someone and asked. They told me I was at the wrong terminal! Get to other, check in. Ask if I have to collect luggage and customs at LAX. No goes right threw. Wrong. Waited for cases at LAX. Have to collect & go threw customs. No cases, lost in Melbourne. Then I was ignored."
Pros: "Crew was excellent! Very friendly and attentive - entertainment selection was great and the plane stayed nice and cool which is really helpful for a 15hr flight - no one needs 300 sweaty people for 15 its."
Cons: "That we were required to check our overhead bag because it weighed more than 15lbs. Meanwhile as we boarded nearly every passenger had an overhead bag that most certainly weighed more than 15lbs. Not sure what was going on there...also the seats are a little tight when reclined. Once the seat in front of me reclined back I had my knees in the back of the chair the entire flight and I am not a particularly tall person- made for a pretty uncomfortable 15hrs."
Pros: "Overall it was an excellent flight, delicious food, wonderful crew and flight mainly smooth."
Cons: "To get to the gate for boarding was like going from Terminal 2 to Terminal 7 too far for many people to walk and to eventually find when you are not familiar with the airport, thought for a minute Qantas had not paid their airport duties."
Pros: "The second I boarded the plane i realised that Qantus Australia practices number one customer service. Every hostess greeted everyone always with a smile and politeness. The crew were simply fantastic. The new airbus 380 was very comfortable and a perfect flight. Amazing."
Cons: "The fact that my checked in luggage was lost and is yet to be recovered. Very disappointing, i hope its recovered as i don have insurance."
Pros: "Managed to reach destination safely. Only taking about 8 hrs more than scheduled."
Cons: "Flight delayed. The made boarded passengers disembark and wait for an unpredictable amount of time with no updates. Then finally we boarded then the service was very poor. For example they did not remove the dishes for about three hours after serving dinner. The last straw was that they diverted to Sydney instead of the final destination Melbourne as the crew was going over 20 hrs. With the diversion they saved about 45 min , but the exhausted passengers lost another 3 hrs in their already miserable flight. Also quantas NOT friendly for people traveling with kids.... BEWARE."
Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Cons: "Room was quite cold."
Pros: "Crew was trying hard to make customers comfortable"
Cons: "Delay in departure, my seat was next to the “kitchen “, so I didn’t get any sleep due to to constant noise!"
Pros: "The land crew helped get us onto an earlier flight without hesitation."
Cons: "Not very comfortable at the back but we were late to board a different flight. The original seats we chose at booking we cancelled and we were left separated at time of checkin until the crew helped sort it"
Pros: "Good Food and ok services"
Cons: "2 hrs delay. Entertainment system froze and no sound from time to time. Dirty seats."
Pros: "Hot food"
Cons: "Need 34-36" pitch minimum for long haul flights. Grumpy crew"
Pros: "Crew, spacious seats and airplane."
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, like bathrooms."
Pros: "The quietness of the flight not to many over the speaker announcements"
Cons: "My center headphone peice didn’t work so I couldn’t watch a movie the whole flight or listen to music. No sound"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delayed no information"
Cons: "Bathrooms were disgusting, plane was dirty"
Pros: "The service of both inflight & gate agents were wonderful"
Cons: "The seats were a bit tight"
Pros: "Very accommodating for such a long flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down causing the plane to be delayed 70 min in an already 15 hour long flight."
Pros: "Worst food on flight m service"
Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."
Pros: "Nice aircraft and amenities."
Cons: "All 6 of my flights were delayed causing me to miss 2 connections. Had to pay for a hotel and arrived a day late to final destination. Agents, sales desk, all could care less."
Pros: "Cleanliness, really courteous staff, comfortable seats, entertainment from an app :-)"
Pros: "We loved everything from check in to leaving the plane. They are a lovely bunch. Thank you, Qantas, for hiring wonderful staff members. We hope you treat them well."
Pros: "I love Qantas in general. I paid for exit row seats and it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "Food was ok but I've had better in Qantas."
Pros: "The seating, streaming movie choice and food exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Everything was fine. I have flown with Qantas many times, and it was same as usual"
Cons: "I had no problems"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, comfy seats, quiet sleeping time"
Cons: "Some of the head phone connection did not work"
Cons: "Food on board from Syndey to Melbourne"
Pros: "The personal entertainment option worked fantastically. Food was also very good for such a short flight."
