Airline reviews

Pros: "Regional flight so only one cabin attendant. Pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "Wider seats but tha'ts the nature of smaller aircraft"

Pros: "The food we were served was of excellent quality which is so unusual when it comes to airline meals, crew and service was great as well. Obviously Air NewZealand have a far better understanding of what there customer base require compared to their competitors"
Cons: "Could not fault anything"

Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant and it was nice to get a drink of water, a cookie and the offer of a cup of tea or coffee"

Pros: "GREAT CREW, THEY DID THE BEST THEY COULD. VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL."
Cons: "Ground personnel could have been way more helpful. We came back from Europe and needed to take a domestic flight to Palmerston North.We had a lot of handluggage that was allowed in our international flight, we had purchased an extra suitcase ticket to make sure it wouldn't be a problem. The lady that helped us was not willing to include any more items than 1 small suitcase that weighed only 11 kg, but we had paid for 23 kg. When we wanted to board the airplane we were told we could only take 7 kg each. Which caused problems and stress that we couldn't use after a 40-hour flight from Europe. We discussed this with the lady at the counter which wasn't really helpful to start with, but eventually, she let us board the plane anyway after we had to explain our situation a few times, and after she asked us to weigh our extra items, which of course we're more than 7 kg. We were pleased that at least she let us board our plane in the end. Hopefully next time we won't encounter the same problems."

Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."

Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"

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

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. With decent leg room and nice seats. The in flight entertainment was excellent. As was the crews efficient and professional service. Top star"

Pros: "The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crumbs still on my seat when I boarded"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and made you feel special. The food was great! The burger was tremendous! The films very up to date."
Cons: "The seat is comfortable but doesnt recline enough, I dont like the fact that you need to flip the seat to get it flat, when is it flat its rock hard! Good on AirNZ for providing the foam mattress topper it helps. ButOnce its flat you cant really watch TV."

Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."

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!"

When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."

Pros: "The regional flights are nice and quick with no frills or complications. Everyone is in one cabin and you can quickly board using kiosks at the gate."
Cons: "You might want to bring a book on this flight or something as their in-flight video and adverts are all you'll really see in terms of entertainment."

I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "And no announcements re the delay until the very last minute."

Pros: "Quick check-in"
Cons: "The whole terminal is budget. Hardly any seating once you go through to the gates and its a 7-minute walk back to the food court. Nowhere to charge phones. Nothing complimentary on the flight so if Virgin or Qantas are around $20-30 more, do it!"

Pros: "no concerns - had a seat free next to me which made it a pretty perfect flight"

Pros: "flight comfort was as expected"
Cons: "plane was over an hour late. a week before another Jetstar flight to Queenstown was 2 hours late. seems Jetstar is often late."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and next available was nearly 4hrs later and left late! And then they have the gall to tell you to board quickly. Emails all about trying to frighten you into paying for extra luggage and sell you mediocre food and pay for a seat allocation."

Cons: "No entertainment at all, not even a app"

Pros: "Arrangement when flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Cancel the flight without letting me know"

Pros: "never fly with Jetstar again ripped off with return baggage cost girl at reception seemed to get pleasure at taking 60 dollars from me for another hidden cost"

Pros: "Charge for an extra 2 kgs = AUD50. Pretty average customer service if not slightly shoddy. Reminds me to avoid budget airlines. Cabin crew officious"

Cons: "Too bad you have to pay for every service...seats, TV, food."

Pros: "It wasn't cancelled like previous flight. It arrived and departed o time . No inflight entertainment at all."
Cons: "The cramping was incredible. No storage , people's bag from seat behind encroaching on foot space in front. Knees in my back from behind passenger. Seat design exceptionally upright, no head rest wings to support a dosing head. Torture chamber really."

Pros: "flight was on time, moved everyone efficiently, quickly through boarding gates, luggage arrived quickly - not a long wait to get it, staff nice, professional, polite, greeted us in friendly way"

Cons: "1 star for entertainment and food because the flight is only 40 minutes!"

Pros: "I wasnt hungry"
Cons: "I declined as i wasnt hungry or yhisty"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Awful service, took a booking from Melbourne to Aukland and cancelled 5 hours later. Offered no alternative or option but to leave our trip. Completely destroyed our travels which we saved years to accomplish. Avoid these (JETSTAR) like the plague, unless you want an incompetent airline to wreck your traveling. Words really cannot describe our feelings towards our treatment and lack of any empathy from the airline, who took a booking and then cancelled it in record and and said there is no other flights! Thanks for that - never again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "It was all on time. A good flight."

Pros: "Flight crew polite and helpful considering it was a full flight"
Cons: "Random carry on checks penalising customers, especially embarrassing for Asian customers pulled aside and penalised in front of others for overweight hand baggage. Apparently no consideration for cultural respect and saving face. I felt very badly for the lady affected. Hand luggage checks should apply to all or nobody - random checks are nothing but a price gouge. If you're going to do it, at least give a voucher of some sort or some kind of incentive to choose jeststar again. Extremely poorly thought out procedure."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Lack of legroom."

Pros: "On time departure/arrival"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late"

Pros: "Everything, except luggages were not included"
Cons: "We had to pay for any entertainment"

Pros: "Value"
Cons: "Baggage fees, but that is to be expected now"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The airline attitude. Aggressive and punitive, Absolutively not even sightly friendly. Much worst than RyanAir."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "NEW check in procedure with lack of instruction Seat spacing and lack of room in cattle class, first seat I have ever had that it's so called upright position actually bent you uncomfortably forward during take off and landing and I used to work in the industry"

Pros: "I got to my next destination"
Cons: "The $320 charge for our bags at check in!!!! No mention from kayak that there is a higher charge for bags if u pay after U buy the ticket. The walk outside To get on and off the plane. Nothing good about this airline or the lack of adequate description of their ridiculous policies from Kayak"

Pros: "Nothing from special services and checkin"
Cons: "We had 8 flights booked and requested 2 wheel chairs and 1 checked bag for each passenger for each flight. We had no problem with other airlines. We were told by the Jetstar employee on the flight from from Auckland that there was no checked baggsge requested Not likely from our end because we had 8 flights in a 3 week period. We had our bags weighed at special services and was told we were limited to 15 kg for a checked bag. One bag supposedly weighed on that scale 17.6 kg but the same bag showed it weighed 13.9 kg when we checked it in. We were forced to pay $70 per bag for a total of $140. We need a refundnd immediately. Funny, on the return trip to Auckland our tickets showed 1 checked bag per passenger and we'were limited to 20 kg per bag on Jetstar. How can an airline operate this way. Your survey is ridiculous because you ask for ratings on nonapplicable items. ."
