Pros: "Good quick flight"

Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My seat 57E could not be adjusted but half way through the flight was given another seat and managed to get some sleep. In our experience Air New Zealand is tops."

Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."

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...

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

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "seat crew food entertainment"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Purchased an exit row aisle seat - all the leg room I could ask for. Close to toilets - no odor issues. Good meals. Staff basically courteous (though not unfailingly - occasionally a tad blunt and titchy - a common experience for me on Air NZ)."
Cons: "Air NZ website states exit row seating purchase comes with priority boarding. When I asked about this at the gate counter I was told I would be seated by row number. Seems like this is a common issue with Air NZ - see e.g., skytrax website reviews. The website advertising is inaccurate if not false."

Cons: "Very little space in the aisle and between seats"
Pros: "Not a problem, anywhere. For a long day, that is appreciated."

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: "Smoothe flight"
Cons: "1/2 hour late to depart"
Pros: "Always friendly and attentive crew. Food was very nice. The help getting from one flight to another at the stopover was wonderful."

Cons: "For such a long trans-oceanic flight, I am used to the cabin crew coming around with drinks on a regular basis to keep people hydrated. That didn't really happen on this flight; I had to get up twice and walk to where the crew were hanging out (in a closed-curtain area) and ask for water."
Cons: "This is my 2nd International Flight and Qantas outrated the other airline 100x’s over. Thank you"
Pros: "We were treated very rudely."

Cons: "Every time I’d call an 800 number I’d get someone in South Africa who was sooooo unhelpful. I’m sure she had her script but for heavensake all I needed to do was to go online and get a visa. And I saw someone in San Francisco at the ticket counter get a visa and yet I was told I wouldn’t be flying that night as I had forgotten to get a visa. No help at all !! I know I wasn’t the only person that ever got a visa. I was told to call my consulate. Clearly there was a simple way to get a visa and I was so freaked out until I figured it out myself. Made it so unpleasant."
Pros: "The flight was perfect, good leg space in economy, food was good both breakfast and dinner, even snacks were available during the flight."

Cons: "Food was terrible (gave it 1 star because it showed up) and boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Good food on the plane; friendly staff."
Cons: "Horrible accomodations; I've never been in a flight this tight before. It was miserable the whole way. Even Southwest is roomier. I should have taken an American carrier. Space is the number one priority on a flight across the Pacific, and Qantas really doesn't understand that. I've taken Delta, American, and United across both ponds. Stick with them! After all, I can make my own food."
Pros: "Overall experience was good.Food quality and snack was good."
Cons: "Would like to have more choice in Bollywood movies., and food."
Pros: "Cleanliness and comfort of plane, professionalism and courtesy of staff. Quiet, dark cabin allowed for restful trip."

Pros: "Nothing because this flight never happened."
Pros: "I liked the fact that there was a water refilling station so I could get water when I needed/wanted it. The people were friendly and there were lots of times when the lights remained off so that people could sleep. There weren't a lot of interruptions during the flight so people could rest or do what they wanted! I also like that Quantas is associated with American so I got a ton of miles!"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't stay upright so any movement made it go back, which was fine for resting but when eating or sitting up, I kept falling back. Luckily the person behind me was understanding."
Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."

Cons: "Turbulence along the Route"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hr 30 min because of catering issues. Because of that only one hot meal for 14 hr flight. Diabetic food was the worst I ever had. My prepaid seat for extra $35 AUD wasn't available. The seat was uncomfortable and the pillow was huge - I had to put it on a floor. I am surprised why Qantas is rated #9 among best airlines for 2016. I will try to avoid Qantas in the gorier."
Cons: "I made the same flight last year on a newer plane. This time I missed having water bottles available at all times."
Pros: "Attentive crew Loved that they ranged in ages and races I also loved that the crew were helpful and cheery Crew interacted with my daughter well and always stopped to talk or smile at my daughter as they walked past Qantas are truly the best!"

Cons: "Interior and entertainment system quite outdated. When trying to turn on the reading lights the ones above the seats before us would go on, not ours (21H was our seat, 20H light would turn on, not ours)"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "More leg room and comfortable seats"
Cons: "More selections for movies . Fresh veggies or fruit in meals."

Pros: "Efficient crew and boarding."
Cons: "Hard to see movies overhead due to brightness of cabin."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest. Movies were mostly older and good PG at worst."
Cons: "Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest BUT very cramped in Basic Economy. I’m short and couldn’t even put my seat back for entire 11 hours because man behind me was so tall. Meals did not include any salad but did have small amount of veggies."
Pros: "Nothing was real impressive but nothing really bad for a budget airline."

Cons: "Boarding was hectic and unorganized, but functional. Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best."
Cons: "Small and bland food. Very limited entertainment. TV didnt work but they gave me an ipad."
Pros: "Food was very tasty. In-flight movies were up to date and very good."
Cons: "Seat was hard as a rock. No way to get comfortable on a 10 hour + flight. Seat in front practically is in your face when they recline. I'm not fond of the A330 layout. Give me a 777 any day."
Pros: "I traveled with my 4 children and my husband. Out of Honolulu the flight is scheduled very late so i had extemely exhausted children. The gate agents were so very helpful and so compassionate, especially because my 4 month old baby was crying. They stepped up and helped me with my other kids as my husband was out looking for water to make a bottle for him. Awesome awesome service! The crew was very nice and helpful when we were all sleeping. Did not bother us once and they let us sleep. Unfortunately I did not try their food service but my husband said it was delicious. The only thing was that they only offered a couple of movies via some small screen at the ceiling of plane making it hard for my 5 yo daughter to watch anything ultimately relying on their tablets which dies early. Overall, from check in to touch down, it was a very pleasant flight! Oh! And the blankets were so soft!!"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Good flight. The curry chicken was spicy, but good. Concerns on weight totals for luggage for checked (50 lbs) and carry-on bag (15 lbs). Never weighed either bag. Was prepared though just in case they did weigh, as we’d read about $150 overweight surcharge."
Pros: "The way we were boarded."
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable and meals were tasteless"
Cons: "We were in the last row on the plane for some reason that was not explained....Parts of plane fell on our heads..Not enough room to lower the tray table...Wedged into seat like sardines...Entertainment was the sounds of toilets flushing...We paid a fortune for first half of flight from LAX to Nadi that was excellent...The second leg of trip to Auckland was a HUGE NIGHTMARE that won't be forgotten....Shirley and Ron Richard"

Pros: "The movie choices"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane... Even with jackets and blankets on!"
Pros: "Crew. On time."
Pros: "Pleasant staff with meals and private films included."
Cons: "The space between seats is exceptionally small. It was cramped without even enough room to bend over and pick something up off the floor."
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened. At least they could have tried the following day but I guess it was a financial decision and not one made with customer service in mind. I would never fly on them except they’re the only game in town to reach Kiribati."
Pros: "Previously took 4 other Air NZ flights on this trip and loved them - great entertainment, very pleasant and helpful crew. The long flight from Fiji back to the US was partnered with Air Fiji and it was just a bit above average compared to our typical experience with Air NZ. The boarding experience was really good and much more organized than most airlines, which was nice. Plenty of bathrooms available, they came around with water frequently, which is a must on these long flghts, and every seat had their own screen for entertainment, which is very nice."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, not much leg room especially for such a long red eye. Movie and TV selection was limited compared to typical Air NZ flights. Half the crew was somewhat unpleasant and overlooked passengers trying to give them trash and even charitable contributions when they were going around collecting specifically those things. (The other half of the crew was the more typically amazing, customer oriented attitude.) Not sure if Air Fiji just over works its crew or what, but it was not as pleasant. The food was also back to typical just ok airplane food, not normal for Air NZ which has great food and lots of it. We also were not able to pick our seats for this flight, which was not ideal for comfort or location."
Cons: "Poor communications between crews and passengers"
Pros: "Everything was perfect - from the crew, to the plane itself, to the entertainment and blankets and seats -- delightful and easy flight!"
Cons: "They lost our luggage and did not compensate us enough to replace what we needed"
Pros: "Comfort of "quiet zone" seating which was an extra $149 per person."
Cons: "Check in clerk and Manager were not very helpful. Check in was a nightmare with no organization for preferred flyers. Boarding was also disorganized and chaotic."
Pros: "The crew and entertainment options were wonderful!"
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable and the food was just okay."
Pros: "Got to Fiji safe."
Cons: "1. Checked in was very slow. When we got done, we have to run to the gate cuz they are already boarding. 2. Seats were very small, too tight even for people with short legs. 3. Not much movies to choose from, it was an 11 hour flight, at least give us more movies to choose from. 4. Just saw crew once, when they were passing out meals and collecting them."
Pros: "On time. Good people."
Cons: "Business class seat could be better"
Pros: "Had decent entertainment options and enjoyed the blanket and pillow!"
Cons: "Food, I chose to not even eat the meals after my first experience with Fiji Airways."

Cons: "Angled seats Limited choice on IFE"
Pros: "Crew is very nice & welcoming"
Cons: "Delayed flight, which I understand happens. However they stayed the new flight time was 6:05pm. We didn't take off until at least another hour after that. Minimum entertainment options - approx 30 movies all together and most were older. Food was not good. Small seats with very little leg too"
Pros: "Who sells Business tickets to parents with 18 month old children? Paid extra to arrive in Fiji rested and relaxed. No surprises h thing. Kid screamed off and on the entire trip. Row right behind us. Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Seats are flat but not horizontal."
Pros: "Fiji airways food it horrible.........cant even eat it.. management should eat the slop they give us,, the service is horrible...we are treated like cattle unfortunately i must fly Fiji airways as they have a concession Fiji from LAX"
Cons: "NOTHING .............MY ADVISE IF POSSIBLE AVOID FLYING ON FIJI AIRWAYS"
Cons: "I had a seat assignment for my NAN-LAX flight and it was not honored. I had seat 9b assigned but when I got to the airport check in they put me in row 40."
Pros: "free food and wine and beer"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor with old screens coming down from the ceiling. No choice of movies."
Cons: "Also missed this flight."
Cons: "Missed the flight! I find it ridiculous you do not get a "Check In Online" email from Fiji Airways if you do not book directly through them. That, to me, is insane. All Fiji Airways passengers, whether they booked directly or not, should get that email."
Pros: "Good food, good service, efficient boarding. B737-800 in economy can be cramped but thats a given on any airline. Full service flight, will fly again"
Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Pros: "The crew did an excellent, professional job."

Cons: "5hour flight should have a meal"
Cons: "The gate agents called all boarding groups with the boarding queue extending the entire length of the jet bridge and into the terminal beyond the gate area, making us stand in line ten to fifteen minutes longer for no reason."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours, and I am still trying to get to lax. All due to the pilots being too tired to fly, and due to maintenance. I would of appreciated checking into a hotel room a lot earlier than I did due to vague communication. I’m exhausted with only 2.5 hours of sleep."

Cons: "The seat assignments based on loyalty status - rude gate agents"
Cons: "Delayed multiple tomes"
Cons: "Took off 40 minutes late, rude attendants, very hot on plane, no apologies from staff for being late. Worst flight in a long time."
Cons: "I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well."

Cons: "You overbooked the flight"
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."

Of course the hotel only take you until 12pm so I spend so many hours in the airport waiting for re ticketing they told us to be at 6pm we wait and I got my ticket leaving at 9.45pm but the crew come one hour and half late. From Panama to Lima flight was late . I had a conference very important to be Saturday morning, I lost my investment and relationships with the company I was going to start a business there excuse was they couldn’t relay on my punctuality, honestly.

So for 6 hours, after my phone died, I basically stared at the wall and then had no phone to assist with my directions or hotel reservations once we landed. Food was not good. Plane was old, and had a few random screens playing a movie that kept freezing and had to be restarted."

Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized. Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines. Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."
Cons: "My flight was delayed in Portland due to " airport construction" at SF . My . connection was missed in SF causing a day long lay over. Meal voucher was denied by 2 different United customer service people..i don't consider construction out of human control ,like weather. Also ,I found it annoying that because a woman in front of me started crying over her missed I connection for an international trip, she was given a meal voucher.Agents were unfriendly and not sympathetic.Long line of customers with only 3 agents , but of course, they had to still use one for elite customers."
Pros: "TV with good documentaries"
Cons: "Brand new plane with technical problems; we had to sit on tarmac for an hour and then all deplane, wait another hour, then still delays after re boarding. Landing late at night in Newark makes train connections to NYC a great hassle."

Pros: "Nice and smooth ride"
Cons: "All was great!!"
Cons: "Bought the ticket from Lufthansa but the operator was United. Although it was known by the operator that there is a delay already at check-in, passengers where notified only at the gate. Delay was so long that most passengers would miss their connection. After standing an hour in line at the gate to book alternate connection, counter was closed and we were directed to another 10 min walk away. After another 1.5 hours without reaching a representative we had to rush back to the gate to board. In Frankfurt had to stay in standby for the next alternative flight. Luggage was delayed in the US for 2 more days."
Pros: "Free new release movies available for free. Pretty good for a domestic flight. Lots of choices to choose from. Staffs were friendly, helpful, and attentive."
Cons: "No spaces left for carry-on luggage, even if I was able to put mine away. I felt bad for those after me."
Cons: "okay because it was short"
Pros: "The view and legroom was nice."
Cons: "I collect disability each month so I am on a very tight budget. The Spanish speaking woman that pushed my wheelchair told me that I can bring my water bottles full of water through the metal detectors. I asked if she could take me somewhere to pour them out and refill them on the other side. They threw them away at the metal detector. So I had to buy a new bottle for my medicine that I have to take. You would think she would have got it by me carrying these bottles around but nope. She actually said to me that I can give her gratuity now if I wanted. I gave her $1. She then replied in a sarcastic voice " Thankyou you are soooo generous. I don't like feeling obligated to tip somebody because I am disabled and have a bullet in my head."
Cons: "Same.as above."
Pros: "Entertainment available; happy that it was free; blanket and pillow"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable to sleep in so I didn't sleep at all from San Francisco to Bradley; wished my seat had somewhere to plug my phone"
Pros: "I missed my flight and the front counter was very, very cheerful at 8pm and helpful. I was able to get on the last flight. There was no food or entertainment, but it's a short flight. I didn't really mind. Just happy to go home in comfort with my upgraded exit aisle seat and no one next to me."
Cons: "My itinerary had to completely change."
