Pros: "The crew"

Pros: "The crew on air New Zealand was absolutely amazing. Amazing customer service, makes me always want to fly with air New Zealand."
Cons: "I had no heads up that New Zealand required an app downloaded and a government check before you can travel to New Zealand. Because of this, I had to download the app at the airport, and because it can take up to 72 hours for the NZ gov to approve your app, I almost missed my flight. Would have appreciated 72 hours notice of this new rule."

Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"

Cons: "Breakfast was not tasty. Options could have been better."

Pros: "The space!"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Had to cancel trip because a passenger was hit by a car one week before the trip. Refused a refund by the airline."

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

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: "Crew were great!"

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: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."

Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"

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: "The crew is amazing. Always friendly, smiling and happy to oblige. Love the New Zealand hospitality. The inflight entertainment has so many programmes to watch, and the list of music options to listen in to is well stocked. Food is excellent. Obviously overate in the 9 1/2 hour flight."

Cons: "Very Slow meal service, had to ring for sparkling water when we had asked the attendant during the meal service. Took 20 minutes."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I can’t be more demanding. Everything on the flight were good."

Pros: "Very friendly ground service staff member, lovely to be transferred to an earlier flight and my seating request was granted, flight service was also excellent."

Pros: "My first experience in business class"

Cons: "Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount."

Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"

Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"

Pros: "A whole season of New Girl!"
Cons: "Was very crammed."

Cons: "Air NZ serves the special meals first but never offers passengers a drink. By the time the meal and drinks trolleys come round for the rest of passengers, most people have eaten their special meal."

Cons: "No enough blankets when feeling cold"

Pros: "Staff were always happy and friendly"

Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"

Cons: "Our family nearly missed the trip due to delayed from Melbourne"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "Inflight service and all round experience with Air New Zealand was excellent"
Cons: "Aircraft cabin way too hot on both jouneys"

Pros: "Staff were lovely and food good ."
Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."

Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"

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!"

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

Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."

Cons: "ANZ changed the flight time to 3 hours EARLIER, and they sent NO notification of the change. Missed the flight, and there were no ANZ staff to help, so had to buy a new ticket ( to the tune of $1700.)"

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

Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."

Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"

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

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."

Pros: "The service was excellent. The food was wonderful and the cabin very comfortable."

Pros: "Cree"
Cons: "Cold flight Food average at best Overall nothing flash and nothing bad solid average"

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

Pros: "Very friendly ticket counter staff and flight crew."
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak on Virgin Australia, but found out it was a codeshare on Air New Zealand. No where during booking did it show we would be charged for 1 checked bag a piece. Got to the airport and Air New Zealand was going to charge 134 AUD for each checked bag. Fortunately, they recommended going to the Virgin Australia counter to see if they could add a checked bag to our ticket. The nice people at Virgin used an online code to give us a discount so we only paid 25 AUD a bag. Thanks a lot for the heads up Kayak. We will book direct next time to avoid surprises. Also, almost all movies on Air New Zealand were an extra charge, and the only drinks offered for free on a 3 hour flight were coffee, tea, and water - no soft drinks."

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: "Air NZwas a good carrier"
Cons: "Kayak to Virgin Australia to Air NZ - we had a long layover and surprised by 0 bag check in and very expensive charge, When asking for help all told to go to the other : for earlier flight - huge charges - no help : bags - no help and we paid onerous amounts. All bad and with lots of frustration trying to get help."

Cons: "Set seats for 2 middle of 4 middle row E & F seatsw"

Cons: "Virgin Australia operated by air New Zealand. Couldnt check in online and had to be chat he been."

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"
