Pros: "Easy flight."

Pros: "Staff and seating"
Cons: "Paying for movies on a long trip really stingy ☹"

Cons: "i was a little disappointed in seating .... felt like a Sardine ... unlike my flight from Brisbane to Auckland on my way to LA... which surprised me,"

Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"

Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"

Pros: "The flight was on time, staff courteous and we made good time to the destination."

Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"

Pros: "Crew were lovely."
Cons: "Had a lot of hassle adding baggage to this leg of my trip on booking. At check in i was asked to pay $130 for baggage, which was no surprise. Luckily Air New Zealand ground staff sorted it out and I did not have to pay. I will book direct with the airlines next time."

Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."

Pros: "Smooth flight. Crews' sense of humour"
Cons: "A bit of delay in take-off schedule"

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"

Pros: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"

Pros: "Plz could u guys add Korean subtitle to movie or tv . Because when i was boarding, i couldn't find any Korean subtitle. I can understand English so that's find. But it let me think u guys don't really care Korean market ."

Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."

Pros: "This flight was great. The team were friendly and the plane was also well air conditioned."

Pros: "The crew were delightful. Nice cup of tea and a magnificent day for flying."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"

Cons: "Nothing at all!"

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "Crew complete meals and drinks efficiently so passengers can settle quickly for night flight"

Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"

Pros: "The fact that every possible thing was tajen 8nto account to connect us from our late arrival intetnational flight. Great team"

Pros: "I was feeling motion sick and several flight attendants went out of their way to help me feel better. I wish I knew their names as I would specifically mention them, but I really appreciate everything they did for me during that time."
Cons: "Allow passengers to choose if they want a vegetarian meal."

Pros: "Flight good. Plane modern model with good entertainment system. Flight crew good."
Cons: "Check in automated systems referring most checking to supervisors. No manual system so supervisors overwhelmed. Chambolic 2 hours."

Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"

Pros: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"

Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"

Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."

Pros: "Everything ❤❤❤"

Pros: "No complaints at all"

Pros: "Quick, efficient, friendly service"

Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."

Pros: "Staff were kind and thoughtful with younger passengers."

Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."

Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."

Pros: "Some of the crew were excellent service wise"
Cons: "Some of the crew were less than what I would expect service wise"

Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"

Pros: "The service and entertainment. And blankets to keep you warm because it does get cold on the plane."
Cons: "Small seats, no room."

Pros: "Snack ordering system Good service (picked up passenger's eye glasses when person was sleeping)"

Pros: "Loved the landing lollies :) I was in a comfortable seat for a 3.5hr flight, and the entertainment system was on par with Qantas. I've long been a staunch Qantas traveller but will remain open to air NZ when travelling to NZ in future."

Pros: "The service in Premium Economy was outstanding with two dedicated and attentive staff members. The food was excellent and drinks served in real glass made a difference. the space was generous, seats comfortable, and pillows and blankets of a higher quality than economy. Overall a superior experience."

Pros: "flight was okay, leg space kind of small, but flight was short"

Pros: "Everything was outstanding"
Cons: "Nothinng really"

Pros: "Loved the spaciuos seats and great leg room. Food superb!"
Cons: "Annoying passenfer who peobably drank too much"

Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."

Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"

Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"

Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"

Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."

Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"

Pros: "The journey ending"
Cons: "The length of travel!"

Pros: "Airbus from Melbourne to Dubai is very comfortable for a long haul flight"

Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."

Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."

Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."

Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."

Pros: "I forgot my laptop in the flight and called almost inertial but could not find it yet."

Pros: "Price, comfort, ice, food and drinks"
Cons: "I just don’t like discomfort of others moving their seat back."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight in A380"
Cons: "Boarding at Melbourne was late and somewhat shambolic. Flight attendants did their job but not with enthusiasm or friendliness. Emirates flight attendants seem to have lost some of their enthusiasm and friendliness."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."

Pros: "Awesome plane, lovely cabin crew, overall went above and beyond to make it as best a flight they could for us! I will definitely fly (and prioritise) emirates as a preferred airline from now on."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "No tea only coffee. No extra drinks. Crew unenthusiastic. Fewer decent English movies. Will be looking elsewhere after 14 years of being emirates-loyal."

Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."

Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Enerttainment"
Cons: "Got moved to right near the galley and crew talked loudly complaining about people, during sleeping time and the light was too bright to sleep. Limited vegan food available. Everything seemed too much trouble for a lot of staff, they were rude and impolite. Delay boarding in singapore."

Pros: "On that route the plane can be quite empty on the Melbourne-Singapore leg, meaning lots of space to sleep in coach."
Cons: "Food served very fast (I barely had my first bite that they came with coffee and tea and never seen again). Quality of the food was ok."

Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."

Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"

Cons: "Slow cleanup after food service."

Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"

Pros: "Staff were great. Food was good."

Pros: "Everything was great and the service was really good. The drinks were really nice with many options including a half bottle of red wine."
Cons: "My food took sometime to come back as they ran out of lamb. The clean up service took awhile and my used cups were still on the table. But overall I like the Emirates."

Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"

Pros: "Like everything"

Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"
Cons: "Attitude of Emirates ground staff and crew. Compare to Emirates Singapore Airpines staff are more polite and helpful."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good seat size and space, very comfortable. Excellent entertainment."
Cons: "One food selection was good, another just plain bad."

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."

Cons: "Flight was late departing."

Pros: "Watched movies to pass the time. Trip uneventful but 2 hours late"
Cons: "The announcements by cabin crew on board were hard to understand as English not first language"

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: "good"

Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."

Pros: "As before great assist with wheel-chair support"

Cons: "entertainment screen on the back of the headrest was smaller than an ipad screen"

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: "everything"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"

Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."

Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."

Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."

Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."

Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"

Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

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: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"

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: "The food and service were excellent!"

Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."

Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."

Pros: "Customer service was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no Sauvignon blanc on the wine list"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."

Pros: "Flying to Qantas always enjoyable - staff always make for pleasant journey. Always happy to fly Qantas."
Cons: "One negative experience was that there was only 1hr 30mins between connecting flights. Between departing international flight - picking up luggage/toilet stop and clearing Immigration/Customs then catching bus between Qantas international domestic terminals we were racing to catch flight. As we arrived Qantas domestic terminal our names were being called over along with info the plane was awaiting our arrival. In my experience 2hrs is minimum time between connecting flights - otherwise good experience."

Pros: "Friendly service"

Pros: "Appologises for the delay and the pilots attempt to make up time. The care taken during the turbulent period."

Pros: "It seemed that being in seat 33, the crew kept forgetting to come back and get our rubbish. It seemed when they collected the rubbish, they were full at seat 32 row, come back and start at seat 34"

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: "Crew were good & Gold ( Emerald) FFlyer so boarded well"
Cons: "Small seats (narrow) isle seat, being knocked on the shoulder by passing people"

Pros: "Got away on time"
Cons: "No wifi on board or entertainment"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."

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

Pros: "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"

Cons: "can't think of anything that needs addressing"

Pros: "Seats comfortable and seats good and staff friendly"

Pros: "Short flight, and getting a meal made it go faster"
Cons: "Can’t really think of anything"

Cons: "despite being an international flight, there was no charging station in the gate or on the plane the food was subpar to competing airlines that fly the same route serious lack of entertainment options again despite being an international flight"

Pros: "Quick and easy service. Very friendly and polite."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Lovely friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight delayed"

Pros: "Melbourne has got self check in and bag drop working well....Sydney, take note and passengers be ready for it. That said the ground crew are there to help, but read the signs and don't get cranky if you hey sent back to do what you're meant to. On board, the cheese and cracker snack pack I got was great, nice to see complimentary snacks and drinks being maintained. Onboatd wifi via the app worked well and was actually able to use inflight entertainment on hand held device online the Sydney to Melbourne leg"
Cons: "It was a full flight but there was too much cabin luggage. Ppl had oversized bags and too much of it. Get stricter with the measurements would be my suggestion."

Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "food choices in business class ordinary"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Row 10 seats were extremely cramped. Seemed worse than usual. Was placed in middle seat and was unable to even read a magazine. Hostess saw how cramped I was and commented that I should purchase a x class fare, Perhaps virgin should ensure they supply adequate basic seating"

Cons: "In flight entertainment screens would not work properly"

Pros: "Little interruption from pilot"
Cons: "Simon and His team were wooden and lazy."

Pros: "Taking my elderly mother up to the Gold Coast to visit my sister is always a challenge but thanks to the beautiful staff at Virgin it was made so easy. Just outstanding customer service. Thank you so much."

Pros: "Seats were big enough and the entertainment was good"
Cons: "We had to wait an extra hour (after already waiting 6 hours because our original connecting flight couldn’t wait 5 minutes) because 2 people couldn’t sit in their assigned seats. They then got kicked off the plane which Is fine, but why should we have to wait while their bags are found. They broke the rules, they should have to pick their bag up when they get to Perth. Not inconvenience thousands of people!"

Cons: "My ticket was deemed void when I was checking in and I could not get on the flight. I will never book via kayak again."

Cons: "Bag drop area was allowed to be hijacked by a school group that hadn’t checked in already."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were booked with a 45 min layover between flights, however they offboarded us and said that the minimum booking run is 1 hr required. Poor on Kayak end."

Pros: "I didn’t die"
Cons: "Where’s the coffee? What about a proper snack? Why are the stewardesses so grumpy?"

Pros: "6 years. I am old and have been cared for very well."

Cons: "That the flight didn't wait 15 minutes for me to get on it."

Cons: "I am very dissatisfied with virgins service as described above I will certainly be telling all about that and I will likely transfer my velocity membership to qantas upon return to Australia If you want me to yell you how you could have improved your I have many ideas but I’ll slso say you won’t be getting them for nothing !!"

Pros: "The service from the crew was great."
Cons: "I’m vegetarian, the Meals offered were really bad and i was disappointed that I wasn’t offered some of the more appealing vegetarian options that were available for the rest of the passengers"

Pros: "We arrived in Adelaide"
Cons: "Having to wait in a massive line for an hour to check in our bags after landing in Melbourne from a Virgin Australia international flight - there should be a special counter for guests who are transferring."

Pros: "Crew were great and looked after us"
Cons: "Seats a bit small but better than some."

Pros: "The lounge and space on the flight"
Cons: "Bizarre that the passenger across the aisle from me had a ticket to Sydney which had been scanned twice by staff, didn't work, they couldn't work out why and let her on anyway after phonecalls from steward. She wasn't too pleased to be in Adelaide with all her luggage supposedly on the Sydney flight (last minute gate change). Security breach and error!"

Pros: "Great service and staff."
Cons: "The non existent baggage drop at Tullamarine. The in flight snacks needs improving."

Cons: "See above, I was so bored, tired and irritated I can’t be bothered to say if this flight was good or not. Much better than being stuck in the airport and was glad to get to my destination."

Pros: "Sufficient."

Pros: "The staff were lovely."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by two hours, the earphone jack only worked through one side."

Pros: "Everything was great. On time and very nice service Thanks"

Pros: "attentive service and relatively comfortable, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "Meal/snack/food was atrocious, was the most disappointing excuse of a snack. We had a choice of a few pieces of cut apple or an extremely thin sad looking granola bar. Expect airlines that offer “full service” to offer something better for the price, also the fact that no fixed TVs or iPads and you have to use your phone to watch movies, at least get a phone holder on the back of the seat."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Half hour delay"

Pros: "A cold drink just when I needed it. Thank you"

Pros: "The crew were excellent and the plane very comfy."
Cons: "I don't understand why we had a 4hr 40 min flight plan which went way up the Australian coast instead of going in a direct line from Melbourne to Christchurch, when the ticket noted about a 3hr 40 min flight time. If you can enlighten me that would be appreciated."

Pros: "Free drink and snack Courteous service Arrived on time Free registered luggage"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "legroom too small and food was minor snack."

Pros: "Economy X is fantastic, and really enjoy the boarding experience and the crew. left on time and arrived early. Excellent trip in that regard."
Cons: "Almost every time I travel on virgin, which is a lot. They serve a minim muesli bar. Come on Virgin what about changing that a bit. Qantas offer some really good options for not much more of a ticket price. This part of the Virgin Experience needs to change."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed without any explanation, and the staff member at the boarding desk was extremely rude when anyone dared approach her to ask what the hold-up was"

Cons: "Delayed."

Cons: "my seat got changed"

Cons: "Plane interior was nauseatingly hot"

Pros: "Attentive crew"

Pros: "Friendly staff, ease of getting on and off the plane."

Pros: "Flight crew were lovely."
Cons: "Got told to "sit back down and don't worry" when our first flight was delayed, after I asked the lady at the gate that we may miss our connecting flight. She put other customers on different flights to make their connections, but when I approached was denied, and ensured we would make out next flight. Missed the next flight and had to wait another 3.5 hours for the next flight, even after explaining the situation to a gentleman at the customer service desk, he said he could not help us, and gave my partner and i am $8 food voucher while we waited as a 'sorry'. Then on the way home another 30 min delay. horrible first experience flying, Was very disappointed in the customer service & missed my brothers wedding. I should have booked Qantas instead of Virgin."

Check in process is a nightmare without any automated options that backs everything up.

I’ll just steer clear next time."

Cons: "They were a minimum 45 minutes late (one 2 hour, 2 one hour) for every flight. Their running late caused us to miss our connection to Brisbane, so they sent us to Sydney. The ,late flight into Sydney cause us to miss our flight into Brisbane (our ticketed destination city). As we de-planed on the Jetway was a woman holding a sign with 12 - 114 names on it, we were one. She told us to go the the transfer desk and they would help us. We had never been in Sydney, could not find a transfer desk (there was none) found the ticketing counter - nobody there, found the airline office - nobody there, went back to the ticket counter nobody still there, asked a competing airline, they directed us to an air travel management office, where we found Fiji Air personnel. They were surprised we were not told where to go. they tracked down the office manager. We finally met with him at 1:40 PM, he told us our flight was in the domestic terminal and scheduled to leave at 2:00 PM. There was no way we could make it to the plane on time. He was rather rude to us and asked us how we thought we were getting to Brisbane, We responded with "I don't know as we've never been here before". Having never been there. we did not know there was an international and a domestic terminal at the Sydney airport. He told us who we were to fly out on and he was going to call over to the other airline and straighten it out. We went to the domestic terminal tried to check in for our flight, but we could not. That airline called Fiji Air to find out why, after half an hour they were told Fiji Air would not honor our flight as we were noted as "no Shows"/. We had to book another flight to Brisbane. The flights were great, we have had VERY BAD EXPERIENCES with the ground personnel,"

Pros: "We got sone roomy seats it was nice"

Cons: "Boarding but that was due to the passengers. They don't listen"

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."
