Pros: "I love the entertainment system. The airline attendants uniforms are very colourful."
Cons: "Please check your visa requirements is your flight is just a stopover in NZ to AUS (or elsewhere) as I could not return due to unfair transit visa issues in NZ. Have to book another one way flight and pay. completely nuts. I was not warned anywhere till I reached the airport."
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: "That is didn’t happen until the next day"
Pros: "Food vegan was good on all sectors"

Pros: "Friendly, courteous crew"
Cons: "Seat dimensions seem to have shrunk noticeably. Very little leg room"
Pros: "Skycouch a bit pricey, but worth it. Allowed sleep to be possible and comfortable on an overnight flight"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "a) My vegetarian meal the I specially requested. b) The customer service on the phone, before my trip in California and the customer service of the flight attendants on the two flights of my trip. c) The blanket and pillow every passenger was offered on the long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland. d) The pilot or pilots handled the small amount turbulence we on the plane felt well so I did not feel uneasy at those times."
Cons: "For an economy class series of trips, I have nothing bad to report."
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"
Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."

Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
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."
Pros: "Loved the crew, and entertainment options"
Cons: "Very little space in the aisle and between seats"
Pros: "Not a problem, anywhere. For a long day, that is appreciated."
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: "Crew helpful, congenial."
Cons: "Anticipated more legroom based on seat chart diagram."
Pros: "Free cookie!"

Pros: "Very Innovative. Love the Premium Economy seats. And unlike many other airlines that do Premium Economy the food is not just economy food. It is far better and as good as anything you get in Business."
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: "Always friendly and attentive crew. Food was very nice. The help getting from one flight to another at the stopover was wonderful."
Pros: "seats were large, comfortable. layed back nicely"
Pros: "10/10 best flight I've been on, 13.5 hr flight flew by"
Pros: "I fly this route quite often and can't imagine using another airline. Always professional, always comfortable, always fun. Staff, food and entertainment are top notch. I literally trust the pilots with my life. Keep up the good work :)"

Cons: "The seat amenities were below average. 14 hr flight with no power outlets - was surprising"

Pros: "The service was friendly and attentive, the food was good, the legroom was amazingly good for coach, and there were lots of good movies available. Really great all the way around."
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: "We were treated very rudely. We should’ve taken another airline"

Pros: "Great seats on the 787 dreamliner"
Pros: "The crew was amazing , the seats comfortable abd the food and refreshments very good."

Pros: "Not much to like other than access to Cathay pacific lounge at SFO Over booked about 50 seats fights in the aisles security on board blamed on a computer glitch delayed over 2 1/2 hours Business class old uncomfortable seats. After flying Singapore business last week I was appalled at what quantas had for the same price I’m dreading my flight back home on quantas I won’t fly them again"

Pros: "You have a good airline. It was clean and everyone was friendly all communication was good EXCEPT before I got to the airport I forgot my visa and thought all I’d have to do is call Qantas and they’d advise me."
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."
Cons: "We did not get on our flight because we weren’t notified of the time change. Extremely dissatisfied with customer service and the overall airline."
Cons: "We missed our flight due to Justfly and Quantas not informing us about our schedule change. Did not get on our 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: "Loved the crew, very friendly and helpful. Liked having my own tv screen on the back of the seat. Food was great."
Cons: "Wish there was more leg room and ability to lie down. It was a 12-13 hour flight."
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."
Pros: "The staff was great, the individual screens and entertainment options were great. Boarding and service was excellent. Included meal and meal options."

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!"

Pros: "super friendly crew making sure u had snacks and drinks ,smiling the whole time. thank.you!"
Cons: "maybe if i could hve plugged inmy own headphines but no big deal. thank you!"

Cons: "LAX has to get its remodeling completed. Getting to Tom Bradley International terminal and taking the bus to our plane was not impressive. The food on Fiji Air is not good."
Pros: "Crew, food, service"
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"
Pros: "Polite"
Cons: "More selections for movies . Fresh veggies or fruit in meals."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seats in a business class were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "It’s hard to compare after my recent flight on Emirates which was superb."
Pros: "Pillow and blanket provided!"
Cons: "Flight attendants spoke very loudly during times when most passengers were sleeping, waking everyone around. A personal water bottle would have been nice."

Pros: "Very nice crew and stylish pillows"
Cons: "Food was bland"
Pros: "Pleasant, fast, and efficient process"
Cons: "Leg space cramped for my tall husband"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional. Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good."
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"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very nice and liguids were given frequently."
Cons: "The seating needs more room for legs"
Pros: "The movie choices"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane... Even with jackets and blankets on!"
Pros: "Crew. On time."
Cons: "Foid."
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."
Pros: "Friendly staff!"
Pros: "Foods"
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."
Pros: "Professional and friendly crew. My 8th international flight in business class with 3 different airlines and Fiji Airways crew beat them hands down. Loved the Fiji Chicken curry."
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: "Staff was very kind."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 2 hours Leg room was tight for a 10 hour flight Movie options were dated"
Pros: "The flight was relatively smooth, Fiji air had great food and complimentary wine with dinner. The airport terminal is top notch with traveller comfort of utmost importance. Very nice."
Cons: "The seats were a little cramped and the baggage policy is a bit too strict. My carry-on was overweight so i had to pay $320 pa'anga to check it...that was irritating."

Cons: "Just before boarding it was announced that there would be no hot water on board and passengers should try to run and get a coffee at the airport. 5 hour flight ahead. I didn't have free hand to carry a coffee on board.So no coffee or tea. Also no water in the bathrooms! All meals for purchase were not loaded so no veggies or any gluten free options for purchase. Wanted to buy Duty Free and was told that it wasn't loaded either for some reason. The cabin was a bit cool and after 4 hours of cold drinks I was a bit chilled and asked for a blanket only to discover that they only sell them to the passengers. Then I got the giggles as they thanked us for choosing Air Canada voted number one airline in North America. Hilarious!!!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Pros: "The plane was obviously newer and in good condition. Entertainment options were good. Window dimmers were a cool touch."
Cons: "Service from the crew was generally bad. For a 5 hour flight, we were offered one drink. We had to sit with our pile of trash for 2.5 hours before they collected it. Crew was grumpy and unpleasant. My baggage was damaged."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. Flight was scheduled to take off at 1210 pm, delayed to 1510, delayed again to 1700 then delayed to 2110 and hen finally boarded at 2230 but the flight did not take off for an additional 2 hours making the total flight delay 12+ hours. My mom did not speak English and the staff at the boarding gate would not provide her a translator nor where they willing to talk to us over the phone to assist her. I understand that delays happen but the lack of assistance and multiple delays was alarming (with clear weather). Air Canada device over the phone was unprofessional as well when I called to discuss the lack of assistance we received."

Cons: "The price was too high for the amount of food you got. The taste could have been better. Wish there were more choices of food."
Cons: "We had a hard time reserving seats in advance"
Pros: "Wel,l my flight out of SFO was delayed by an hour and ~20 minutes, which was the length of my layover in Toronto. The pilot was able to make up some time in the air, but I still had to go through customs, security, and then run through most of the Toronto airport with only 25 minutes (before my flight left, probably even less because they close the doors before take off). I was off the plane at 7:30. My flight to Charlottetown was on-time, leaving at 7:55. The nicest male flight attendant on the plane moved me to a seat right before first class and put my carry-on in the closet at the front so I could be of the first off the plane! I ran through the airport, customs, security and all. I got to the gate at 7:41. The lady at the gate saw me running from far off and asked if I was Michelle. She was so happy that I had made it and let me catch me breath before I boarded. The delay on the first flight was very unfortunate and stress-inducing, but all the Air Canada people I interacted with along the way were very wonderful."
Cons: "The delay."
Pros: "Everything and I have alot if air miles under me.The flight crew was great. The aircraft was great."

Cons: "no snacks, no tea"
Pros: "Easy upgrade to a seat with more room without a crazy up charge, super friendly and accommodating staff (both at gate and on flight), smooth ride from start to finish, and very quick turnover to board us after a late arrival plane. All in all, a comfortable experience!!"
Pros: "Okay flight, nothing special."
Cons: "Food?"
Cons: "flight delayed 4+ hours yet no text notifications whatsover"
Pros: "I liked the comfort and the service"
Cons: "the long delay in Montreal"
Pros: "Seat space, leg room"
Cons: "Crew"

Cons: "We arrived into London so late that we were forced to take a taxi at a huge expense. During the 3 hr delay the only food provided was a small bag of pretzels and water."
Cons: "Traveling with 2 adults, a 3 year old and 1 year old, we had to ask to get our seats next to each other's for each flight at the desk. For both our family and other passenger it would make more sense to get that covered beforehand."
Cons: "The crew member on ground were very rude."
Cons: "Love it"
Pros: "I enjoyed the efficiency and friendliness of the crew and the timliness of the flights themselves as well as the boarding process."
