Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"
Cons: "I can’t be more demanding. Everything on the flight were good."
Pros: "I was disappointed that Air New Zealand charges US15 to reserve specific seats. For our party of 3, that would be US90 RT so I didn't do it. But at the gate I asked for window seats and the attendant gave us excellent seats at the front of the plane."
Cons: "No issues that caused us any problems."
Cons: "Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Inflight service and all round experience with Air New Zealand was excellent"

Pros: "Baggage made it all the way to Queenstown from Perth"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The airport was great! Very easy access, fast check in and security. Loved the LOTR theme. Uneventful and beautiful flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Delayed for about one hour."
Pros: "Punctuality. Confortable plane."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"
Pros: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"
Pros: "I was excited to see some notorious places as we flew into Queenstown....however, I wouldn't have known the places if I hadn't been sitting next to someone that knew the area."
Cons: "I can't complain about anything with Air New Zealand....I loved each flight with them."
Pros: "There was so much I loved, but what really stood out was the mood was set from the beginning....music, lighting, and the welcome message on the screens that were personalized for passengers. Great food and the friendliest airline crew ever. I also loved the safety video....it wasn't boring even though I knew to he information."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the middle row, but even then....I couldn't complain.....most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."
Pros: "The pilot would tell us as we were flying over different mountains, regions etc, and the flight was not at all crowded, and there is so much more seat space than on any domestic American flight I’ve ever flown!"
Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."
Cons: "Unable to check-in online because of an international connection. Also, we need to pay extra for everything."
Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Pros: "Things generally went well on this flight; you never know what you're going to get, and this was successful- all went well!"
Cons: "Wasn't all that bad!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, airplane was clean, flight attendants friendly and attentive. Very pleasant flying experience"
Pros: "Comfortable flight and service"
Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."
Pros: "Good lleg room in the aircraft. Friendly service."
Pros: "These guys are the best!"
Cons: "Flight was too short"
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."
Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."
Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Very friendly and frequent service while in-flight. It was great having my own monitor built into the seat to watch available movies or tv shows I wanted to for the duration of the flight. Flight attendants would walk the aisles every two hours and offer water to everyone. I had never flown Air New Zealand before, but now it's one of my top airlines."
Cons: "The only complaint would be that there was no in-flight wifi available onboard."
Pros: "Large screen with good choice of movies etc"
Cons: "As they have 3-4-3 seating on their 777 (BA and Delta have 3-3-3) the seats are very narrow to make room for the extra seat in school row"
I've always preferred Qantas, and the service is still generally good, but someone has taken their eye off the food offering. Back from NZ it was noodles with a sauce in a cardboard box. No cheese and biscuits, no sweet. Air Tahiti/Air Cailin, etc.. give a decent meal while on International.
Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"
Pros: "Service from the moment of getting near the booking counter was excellent. Flight was on time and staff were great."
Cons: "The sandwich for lunch was boring and the bread was not very nice."
Pros: "Good movies make for a quick trip"
Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Cons: "Baby stroller was sent to baggage claim. I had to walk with small baby and a bunch of bags through all steps instead of using the stroller."
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."
Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "The crew was always courteous, helpful, and patient with everyone. They just seemed to have much better attitudes than I’ve seen with other airlines, at least this crew did. Even the food was good!"
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."
Cons: "Cant think of a thing."
Pros: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."
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: "Flight was delayed. Entertainment, movies wasn't that great for long haul flight. They could have included more interesting movies."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Attention by cabin crew was ok. They can be more friendly and approachable. I didn't experience customer care."
Cons: "When my bag got lost"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Uncomfortable flight, food, boarding, minimum entertainment"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Pros: "Crew wa very pleasant and willing to help"
Cons: "Old plane, food was average, luggage wasn't sent first as it usually is for business class and had to wait forever to pick it up"
Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Very poor legroom, felt very cramped for an international flight. The infotainment system in my seat, and some others didn't work."
Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."
Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"
Pros: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing."
Cons: "Minimal food and drink service."
Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."
Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."
Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."
Pros: "When checking in, the lady at the counter gave us great instruction on how to board and what to expect in customs when we landed in New Zealand."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."
Pros: "Wrote a story published in the Samoa News today"
Cons: "Never got my bag in Sydney and I am enroute to the Kingdom of Tonga now"
Pros: "Screen size is better and bigger"
Pros: "The food was great along with the movies. Everything went smoothly and made it home no problems."
Pros: "seat was comfortable"
Cons: "On a long flight, lack of drinking water during the flight, need to improve on this. Lack of communication needs to be improved"
Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Cons: "Almost everything. This airline charges normal fees and offers low cost service. Very bad"
Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Pros: "I'm not sure since I slept through most of the 90 minute flight, which is a good sign, I guess. It was an older plane with no entertainment system, but I hate those things, so fine by me. I missed the food this time around, but it was a crappy cold sandwich when I took the same flight a few weeks earlier, but it's a 90 minute flight, so what do you expect?"
Cons: "The boarding process was pointless While this is a quirk of the airport, the airline should change their procedure for this scenario. LATAM splits passengers into different groups: first class, special needs, priority because you paid, everybody else. That's fine at most airports. At Santiago's airport, however, passengers ride a bus from the gate to the plane, mixing up all the groups on the bus, so what's the point? Worse, special needs passengers were the first to get on the bus, but end up last to get off screwing over the elderly and those with small children. What a system!"
Cons: "The stewards were rude and they overbooked the flight. These arrived at the gate at 6:15 and were told we could not board our plane which was to take off at 7:30. Absolute nonsense."
Cons: "Better pillows"
Pros: "The snack was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over one hour and a half and nobody could tell us why"
Pros: "The people were very kind and very respectful."
Cons: "Well I think this doesn’t have nothing to do with the airline, I guess... any way the airport is dirty, and very to buy something you got have more money than you think, the salesperson are not friendly. To get to the plane they checked everybody’s luggage again in the crazy way!"
Pros: "Plane was clean, videos worked well. Cabin attendants were gracious and spoke excellent English. Food was good."
Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
Pros: "The plane left on time. My LATAM flight to Sydney on Wednesday 12 September was cancelled and I missed a meeting that day in Sydney as a result."
Cons: "We fly during lunch time and were only serviced a snack. Something more substantial would have been in order."
Cons: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Pros: "The whole flight went smoothly and I really have no complaints about the flight itself."
Cons: "When I arrived, my luggage did not make the connecting flight. It was tracked down and hopefully will make it to me soon but you can see how it’s inconvenient. The first leg of my flight was operated by Wamos, though it was a LATAM flight. I know that this is something that happens often for all sorts of reasons, however I can’t help but think it had something to do with the transition of my luggage from one flight to the next. My flights home are similar ( One leg of it being operated by another airline) and needless to say I’m a bit nervous about that."
Pros: "Was cold so requested a blanket, was told we will see ..Blankets were given to passengers in the front seat but I was ignored. I usually carry a warm scarf so do not need airline blankets."
Cons: "No issues will travel on this airline again."
Cons: "Fly us never proactively contacted us about the LATAM flight change so we missed this flight. LATAM stepped up and paid for another two flights to get us back to Austin. No thanks to Flyus, whom we will never book with again. Their customer support was a joke! Jeff"
Cons: "They lost my bag and I had to wait a full day to get it back."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, comfortable and well laid out."
Cons: "Some of the staff had a problem with English enunciation which makes it very difficult for aging passengers to understand"
Pros: "I like the service, the staff are more helpful to us and lots of different from other airline services. Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"
Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized and not on time. My seat assignment was changed upon boarding the plane. They had assigned 3 people to my seat which was an isle seat I had chosen upon purchasing my ticket 5 months prior. I was changed to a middle seat. They had an extra (makeshift) security check point on the actual boarding ramp. They made everyone open their carry-on bags and suitcases on folding tables just before entering the plane. They also took beverages bought at the gift shops, right before getting on the plane which was unusual. Overall ground crew was not very customer service oriented. In flight crew was better."
Pros: "Rescheduled on to a different airline."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "I left a scarf on the plain when we landed in NY. And a lamd team member, Kelly, went out of her way to get it back for me right at the airport, and I did!!!! So helpful and efficient and curtious!!! Thank you!!!"
Cons: "There was a 1hour delay leaving Chile, but they made up some time in the air."
Pros: "It was special. Like a special limo"
Cons: "It actually was all good"
Pros: "Service on board great people"
Cons: "Overbooked flight we had to wait with baby and 4 years old kid till last minute to know if we could get on board or not. Latam wanted us to fly in three different seats we told them that we were happy to flight next day but they pushed till last minute waiting. When that said yes you're flying they forced us to move faster otherwise the fly would be delayed. Mdvela@gmail.com or 0064212154973 if you want to known more ( there is more). Will fly airnz only from now on and will advise everybody to do so."
Pros: "Excellent service and the food is awesome :-) It has one of the youngest fleets in the industry!!! the LATAM Dreamliner feels so smooth! You should really try that aircraft, it has a special pressurization that you won't feel the"
Pros: "Great entertainment choices, the best airline food I've ever had, attentive service, lots of amenities, new and modern plane"
Pros: "I loved the whole trip"
Cons: "Everything was great! No complaints!!"
Pros: "Awesome service, friendly staff and the Dreamliners are amazing. Thanks LATAM and thanks Kayak ... Great fares."
Pros: "Plane on time performance"
Pros: "It was comfy"
Cons: "When I got to Miami, I wasn't assisted to the next gate"
Pros: "Good food, friendly staff, in flight entertainment, flight on time."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. The flight was smooth and quiet."
Cons: "The cabin has garbage and it was dirty."
Cons: "I received a confirmation email and flight information but was unable to check into my flight upon arrival and was not in their system for the flight. Very upsetting and unreliable."
Cons: "Foods service was very very slow. Foods were not good at all"
Pros: "Flying on a Boing 787 is wonderful. The overall service from Latam is top quality; the crew was welcoming and very attentive. Food could be improved, specially offering vegetarian alternative for all of the food services. The movie selection could be improved (in variety and vintage). Music selection was very good for my taste."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seats on line in advance, which created a stressful situation when at check-in we found that my wife and I were not seated together. Fortunately for the first leg of the trip (Santiago-Lima) there was an empty seat by her and I took it; and for the second leg (Lima-Los Angeles) the passenger next to her was upgraded on the last minute and left his seat for me. Latam has great service, but must let customers choose their seats or guarantee assigning adjacent seats to passengers traveling together, The process for servicing of the plane during the stop-over in Lima could be improved. I know it is hard to do minor cleaning, tidy-up, and replacement of pillows & blankets while many passengers remain on board, but at least there should be an announcement describing what the passengers are to expect during the stop-over."
Pros: "Once again, I was impressed with the food and the service. The flight crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "My entertainment center didn't have audio for one of the movies so I had to use closed caption to read what the characters were saying. I had some issues trying to get the movie to play because the screen froze for a moment."
Pros: "Fabulous staff"
Cons: "Long boarding times waiting too much"
Cons: "Latam Flight was delayed for maintenance and notice was not given via email/text or call. Desk agent pointed at paper taped on desk and asked us to read about the delay vs telling us what to expect."
Pros: "Staff was nice but still in an airplane not moving"
Cons: "Waiting and no contact as no cell phone or internet conection to inform hotel you are not going to arrive in time to use their room"
Cons: "To short connection"
Cons: "Latin service can come across as abrupt"
Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
Pros: "Everything was fine and no problems at all with the flight or service. Good value for money."
Cons: "Food was average. I got a chicken sandwich. It was cold (meant to be a cold sandwich) and not particularly tasty. Also, there was limited range of drinks. I asked for tomato juice and this was not available."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The crew seemed to ish they were somewhere else. I was in business class and had to beg for a drink after an hour of flying."
Pros: "good service, professional, nice flight"
Cons: "nothing really"
Flight delayed 4 hrs. Entertainment system didn’t work.
The food was ice cold and poorly selected. Staff was pleasant as usual
Flight cancelled and no other flights available till afternoon next day
Had a crying baby on one of my flights for about an hour and a half.
Extraordinary service in difficult times.
Cons: "Both to and from austin were delayed several hours. Crew was rude to other passengers. Was not impressed by customer service."
Cons: "Comfort of seats. Aisles were too narrow and everyone was touching each other even when they didn’t want to. Seats were uncomfortable and narrow"
Pros: "Flight on time and covid Prevention was in place."
Cons: "Failed to provide wheelchairs as requested."
Pros: "Everything was how should be"
Cons: "I like how you are now."
Pros: "The crew was great and I really appreciate how they accommodated a family with 4 young children"
Pros: "Crew was nice and I was comfortable"
Cons: "Well on the way to Florida I had an entertainment screen that froze and in this flight the screen was blue needing maintenance so it was out of service too."
Cons: "Ability to download premade events apple calendar and apple wallet tickets was seemingly impossible. Send me one email with each of those items as it’s one of the number one thing customers care about"
Cons: "Too small of a plane for that long a flight. Cabin was too damn hot."
Pros: "Gate check of carry-on luggage was nice. The connecting flight from DFW to FLL was on time and the boarding process was very smoothly executed by the gate agent. Well done!!"
Cons: "The flight out of RNO early in the morning was chaotic. One of the kiosks was down and the line to self-check was long and moved very slowly because there was only one agent behind the self-check baggage drop. She did well keeping up but there was a long line of unhappy customers due to the long wait. No snack was offered but I did get a glass of water. Not enough overhead storage for the carry-on bags because passengers get the luggage check tag but brought the carry-on onboard anyway."
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."
Pros: "Food was so so on board BA flight"
Cons: "Personel of BA in general very arrogant and think they rule"
Pros: "The seats are roomier than British Airways"
Cons: "One surly flight attendant-generally obnoxious to the passengers."
Cons: "Our wait to get to the gate was in excess of 40 minutes."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed for almost 3 hours. They accomodated us with free snacks and sandwiches. The flight crew were very professional and were nice to us, because a lot of us were worried about making our flight. They kept us updated with all the changes. They had good entertainment selections. The pilot got us to our destination about 5 minutes early."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed about 7 times, we changed gates twice, and the I got to my second layover with 20 minutes to spare instead of the usual 2 1/2 hours. When I tried asked the stewardess if I could deplane with business because I was running late for my connecting flight, she said they no longer do that because passengers don't listen to them. Instead of trying, she juat said no. I felt like an inconvience to her, like it was my fault I didn't have enough time between my flights."
Pros: "The sight that you can see when you fly over Cordillera de los Andes."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment. We had to board by bus, not by the bridge. Old plane."
Cons: "Crew was incredibly unfriendly."
Pros: "For this flight I was seated in first class (I scheduled it this way; it wasn't due to a last minute upgrade) and the flight attendant was very personable and attentive :-) Service was wonderful and the meal was great! Of course, the flight attendant made sure to keep our beverages topped off as needed. It was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "The boarding process for just about any airline is nearly identical. It always seems like it takes longer to board than expected even if, in reality, it's not an unreasonable amount of time. The only think I didn't care for was that overhead storage in the area I was sitting was just about full by the time I was seated which meant that I had to store my carry on a few rows behind where I sat. This meant that during off-boarding I needed to go against the flow of people to get back to my carry on. All in all, it was a minor inconvenience."
Pros: "The professionalism from the entire crew. Very smooth flight. The in-flight meal was very good ."
Cons: "Even dow we were late departing Santiago Chile, we made it to Dallas in good time."
Cons: "I am very disappointed that I was not sitting with my family. We did not pay to upgrade our seats and allowed AA to choose our seats. I am very surprised that they would not take families traveling together into consideration, especially when we booked all at the same time and far in advance. At the very least sit two together. My daughter sat between two straight, and was very uncomfortable. It made her ill. I will not fly long flights with American again."
Cons: "I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time."
Pros: "Everything was on time and handled efficiently and courteously. I was pleased with everything."
Pros: "movies the whole way. American helped me make up for the cancelled flight over to Europe by letting me fly back from London."
Pros: "on-time, very organized, fast checkin"
Cons: "cramp leg space"
Cons: "First plane's engine caught on fire."
Pros: "I usually don't like or at the meal in coach, but I had a ravioli pasta dish that was great. Also the wine was a much better quality then what I have been getting on the other airlines."
Cons: "On my particular row of seats the power outlets were dead. The flight attendant tried to reset, which reset the entertainment but the outlet remained dead. Used the USB port to charge."
Pros: "The plain looked brand new. The in-flight selection of movies and games was excellent."
Pros: "Comfortable first class seats for a regional airline, although no food or entertainment. Flight attendants were great, very friendly and they checked up on us often. On time departure and early arrival. American Airlines has always been great for me. Will be back"
Cons: "No food in first class, but it was only a 2 hr flight on a regional"
Cons: "It was an eight and a half hour flight that took place in the night. My seat was broken so it did not recline. I also have trouble sleeping on flights and thought there would be the opportunity to watch TV/movies but this was not the case unless you wanted to pay extra. Most international flights already have this built in for free and should be included in the cost. What a disappointment flying on American was. I will take LAN or Copa from now on as my other options."
Pros: "No entertainment nothing"

Cons: "Food - please provide options for your customers since some of us cant eat cheese ravioli."
Pros: "The comfort"
Cons: "The food i have a pretzel bag that someone throw in the floir step on it and the give it to me"
Pros: "Tuve 2 paradas antes de llegar a destino y realmente estaba asustada de que la maleta no llegará junto conmigo a destino pero lo hizo! Además todos los vuelos salieron a tiempo, todo funcionó muy sincronizado"
Cons: "La comida no me gusto tanto, aunque no estaba tan mal tampoco, quizás un menú para niños estaría bien que tuvieran."
great personal interaction by flight staff. Small point. Having missed eating the main meal served just after boarding as I needed to sleep as I had been travelling 24 hours , the promised inflight light snack was not offered and not obvious how to get it. Would have appreciated more drinks offered throughout the flight.
The seats are so painful. No recognition of star alliance gold member
Pros: "Excellent experience & return flight on airbus plane was fantastic, reduced flight time by 1 hour. Great trip, thank you United Airlines"
Cons: "All great"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Super fast, easy overnight flight. They kept the announcements short to allow us to sleep."
Cons: "Not as comfy as some planes I’ve been on, and no TVs but they did have WiFi available."
Cons: "3 hour delay due to weather in SF. First time we heard about the reason was just prior to boarding."
Cons: "Plane on time and it was very hot on the plane"
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Pros: "The whole experience was fine, as expected for today’s standard."
Cons: "Boarding would be better if the window seats go first, followed by middle seats then aisle seats."
Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "It could have been on any airline but United"
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Not enough food for 8.5 hours!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and courteous"
Cons: "The carry on policy, the seats, the completelack of information on how to connect with wifi. The "sorry you might miss your connecting flight because we're running behind, but once you get off this plane nothing that happens to you is our problem even if we caused it to happen" attitude."
Pros: "The United employees handled everything. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We had a delay our flight up two hours"
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"
Pros: "Flight was on time, even a little early. Bags came out quickly at destination."
Cons: "Crowded seats. Too many people bringing huge bags on board even when crew kept asking them to check them. Customs was very long in DC. It would have been nice to been made aware of dowloading customs app before deplaning. It would have saved a huge amount of time."
Pros: "I paid for extra space and it satisfy my needs."
Cons: "The personnel service during the flight was mediocre. In my opinion they don’t know what is customer satisfaction. They have to show that they like what they do with a simple smile. They are not doing the customer a favor . That is their job a good customer satisfaction"
Pros: "A flight attendant went out of her way to bring my wife some nuts from first class, since she said she missed having the packages of nuts and pretzels in economy."
Cons: "The stand-by for business class upgrade process is anything but clear."
Pros: "I am only 5'4" but the seat in front of me was broken. I had NO leg room. If you are going to squeeze your passengers in like sardines, the very least that you could do is make sure what little room you have left us isn't compromised by faulty equipment."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Very few people on flight"
Cons: "Being moved to help balance the flight. ...would be nice to of an extra coke for my obedience"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 90+ minuets"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "I didn’t like not having to choose our seat assignments after we booked our flight. I have used Kayak on many occasions and I was able to choose my seat after booking. I was not able to do that after I booked my flight."
Pros: "Crew was so nice and professional."
Cons: "Small space (I am not heavy set). Crying, inconsolable child on the entire flight. :("
Pros: "The stewardesses were fabulous! Very kind and accommodating. Both candy and the other woman helped me out in getting my musical instrument onboard without it being a hassle."
Cons: "Seats could've reclined a little more."
Cons: "I prefer an entertainment console and monitor in the seat in front of me."
Cons: "It only takes 1hour from LAx. They fudged the flight time to always show they arrive early.. It's fraud"
Pros: "The free in-flight entertainment was great. I appreciate it being free as it makes up for some of the other issues of not being able to sit next to fellow travelers on the low-fare"
Cons: "Did not like that on the low-fare I could not choose a seat next to my traveler. This made me ask the person next to my wife if they would like to switch, which they nicely did. But I imagine this asking of switching seats will probably create tension for your customers in the future. You might consider going back to the original model of sitting next to your fellow travelers."
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "Original seating for my spouse and I was 20 rows apart, then wanted to charge me $244 to be seated together. Crew ran out of food when they got to us in the 50th row on an 8 hour flight. Some crew members attitude were not very friendly."
Cons: "Flight kept being delayed. Gate agents were rude and not helpful. Acted like I was crazy for being worried I would miss connection. After flight was changed 5 times try finally changed my flight and I had to wait 5 hours at airport."
Pros: "The size of the pane. :) it was very comfortable."
Cons: "The attitude of the captains first lieutenant"
Pros: "Direct flight to O'Hare. On-time departure and arrival. Clean, efficient"
Cons: "No extra creature comforts."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "The newer plane with good leg room and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Small overhead bins. Had to check my carry-on"
Pros: "Movies were great. Crew was helpful but seemed flustered."
Cons: "Food was terrible for a ten hour flight; I think we all had upset stomachs from it. Passenger next to me was huge and definitely had mansplain going, not cool."
Cons: "My seat was given away and had to rebook on another flight and another airline"
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "Good food, nice movies. I set in the second line so there was no place to put personal things on the seat before me."
Cons: "The flight was over booked... To many people in the gate."
Pros: "Attendant attitude"
Cons: "Noise in the cabin. Food was only two options, none vegetarian. Bathrooms locked all the time."
Pros: "Really short flight. Everything was up to par."
Cons: "Horrible phone customer serviceI."
Cons: "Dad services they don't care about the passengers"
Pros: "Text and email alerts."
Cons: "Everything. We arrived 2 hours early and my daughter worked very hard to fit everything she needed into a carry on bag which was not easy. Her flight was delayed, delayed again, delayed again, and then cancelled. She was flying alone and should have received top priority and been one of the first called up to figure out how to get her to her destination. But that did not happen. She didn't know what to do at first then got in the long line of people and waited her turn. ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT HER ONLY OPTION WAS TO FLY OUT ON A LATER FLIGHT TO HOUSTON WHICH WOULD MAKE HER MISS HER CONNECTING FLIGHT ANT THEN STAY THE NIGHT ALONE IN HOUSTON AND WAIT THE ENTIRE NEXT DAY THERE UNTIL 9 THE NEXT NIGHT TO CATCH HER FINAL FLIGHT TO SALT LAKE CITY. I cannot even explain how angry and horrified I was that your airline thought that was acceptable for an unaccompanied minor! Clearly this one option that was offered to her by you was not accepted. Then she calls and a guy tells her he can get her there and is going to book her new flights.....only to get disconnected and never called her back. After that there was no one to be found at the desks for your airline. At this point I had driven back to the airport (spent hours driving and waiting) when a wonderful lady from a different airline helped my daughter out and got her on a different airline. However she had to check her bag due to her seating after all the hard work she put in to not checking her bag."
