Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good"

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: "All good"
Cons: "It was very cold so the cabin could have been warmer"

Pros: "Nice, short flight. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two very large women. Couldn't be helped, was a full flight."

Pros: "Good for a sheot flight"

Pros: "Wellington airport is the most accessible and relaxed I’ve used, and the Air New Zealand Check-in process was the easiest I’ve used so far."

Pros: "Amazing crew. Airline was awesome .. seem less"

Cons: "It was over $450 to try and change the short segment fligt from Christchurch to Auckland. I could have bought a new ticket for 1/2"

Pros: "Punctual flight, great boarding and great baggage service."
Cons: "Bag drop could be improved with more personnel to help."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"

Cons: "Due to limited internet in Rarotonga, we weren’t able to fully check in until we got to the counter. The flight in came with two checked bags and not our flight to Auckland. We were expected to pay a fee at the counter but was charged $170 for the counter checkin of one bag. This price was not listed or posted anywhere during the booking or via email for mobile check-in."

Pros: "Everyone was very nice, food was good, movie choice was great"
Cons: "Would have liked a more comfortable seat. Couldn’t sleep well"

Pros: "Best inflight experience on economy!"

Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. 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."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

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"

Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."

Cons: "If the customer is given the option of special meal - 1. the special meal should be what one selects. I selected Hindu meal as per option and was being served Veg Jain Meal. 2. Should be made available. Though I booked the flight for both me and my wife and the special meal request was for both, the wrong Veg meal was made available only to my wife. Something is not right with their system. One you serve what you make us select and then the system is recording only for one passenger."

Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."

Cons: "Having to pay for aisle seats. Constantly having to ask for more toilet roll. Forced to have non vegetarian food!"

Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."

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

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Allowed us to change seats within our section for more comfort. Good food. Loves the USB outlet at our seats."
Cons: "Seats near bathroom were very noisy"

Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."

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

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."

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: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."

Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."
Cons: "Flight was little late but not too bad."

Pros: "On time, great customer service, the in flight entertainment is amazing! Even the food tastes good! Seats were comfortable, toilets and plane were clean, all around amazing."
Cons: "Nothing, it was perfect."

Pros: "VERY friendly and genuine!"
Cons: "Only one cookie-haha!"

Pros: "Comfy front row seat on Q300, quick trip"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Getting on was a delight in Wellington. Having two set of doors open was great."
Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."

Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."

Pros: "Significantly more leg room than other competitors! Even with the person's chair reclined in front of me, I was still able to be comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was as good as can be (given that it is airline food), the choices for entertainment were great. Lots of overhead storage!"
Cons: "Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke."

Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."

Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."

Pros: "I love air new zealand. Watched dr strange and had yummy breakfast. Crew very friendly"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Airport was easy to get to and the flight was very smooth and comfortable on a twin engine plane that is quite modern (noise level very minimal even though it is a propeller plane). Air New Zealand attendants were super friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Amazing staff"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
