We chose not to have food or movies on the flights. The flight was great 👍🏼

The only thing that was less than excellent was the food server at dinner. (I had the chicken.) It wasn't that it was poorly heated or in difficult-to-open containers; it was just that it had a very peculiar taste. And I use that to describe not just the main course but the dessert as well. Very odd flavours for what seemed to be a mainstream item. I did like that the airline offered us a free glass of wine. The breakfast omelette wasn't bad, although it was quite bland.

Pros: "Turboprop, smaller plane, boarding stairs - always fun."
Cons: "Great that they served two warm meals without extra charge? But the meals were quite bland, with little imagination."
Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"
Pros: "The corn chips!"
Pros: "Super easy"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "It was the shortest flight of my itinerary. My last flight home. We sat on the plane for nearly 45 minutes before take off and it was late getting home. Totally ridiculous. Every flight in and out of Eugene is ridiculous like that"
Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"
Cons: "Food in business class and more choice of movies"
Cons: "Generally ok for econ"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crumbs still on my seat when I boarded"
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: "The crew was fantastic. They were incredibly polite and accommodating. This was my first time flying for more than three hours (15 hours from Houston to Auckland) and it really could not have gone much better."
Cons: "Always need a little more legroom in economy but it's a small sacrifice for getting an affordable flight."
Pros: "Food was reasonable and staff as amazing as ever."
Cons: "The flight was extremely packed making the experience a bit less comfortable. The transit through LA was chaos, although and explanation was given including an apology."
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: "My first experience in business class"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"
Pros: "Everything ! Staff was awesome , food was great and hi-tech plane with its entertainment consoles . Touch button options for ordering drinks , food , movies, chatting with other seat passangers , Wow! Blew my mind . We left on time and landed on time too. We had premium economy seats - felt like business class other than reclining level of the seats. Pretty good value!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "Crew did a very good job"
Cons: "Trip was the roughest I have ever been on for virtually the entire time. Could not sleep. Business class cabin was also had the most noise of any front of airplane experience I have had."
Pros: "Service and biz check in"
Cons: "They don't greet me only the people in front and behind me. I didn't receive a meal she skipped me i don't know if you have to pay or not but the person on the left of me got one and the person the right got one"
Cons: "5 hours late. Had to go to work on 2 hours sleep"
Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful"
Pros: "No security on this regional flight; made it simple to board. Very quiet for a turboprop aircraft. Boarding was delayed and not well announced."
Pros: "Great crew.and service."
Pros: "The crew, entertainment, and food were all great!"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive. This puts a huge damper on our honeymoon."
Pros: "Comfy seats, the flight was basically empty so I got my own row. Very nice flight attendants. Pilot kept us updated on timing and storm movement."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, seat hadn’t been swept for garbage from the previous flight (wrappers and used tissues in the seat pocket)."
Pros: "The customer service is stellar, the planes comfortable. I will fly with them again in the future."
Pros: "The crew were uniformly wonderful! They had a bunch of kids from the NZ equivalent of make-a-wish on board so they all dressed up. Anything we needed they provided with a smile."
Cons: "The lay down seats are particularly hard and it is almost impossible to look out the window in business class"
Cons: "We had to take a connecting flight from Paris and British Airlines were very inconsistent with their hand carry policy which gave me so much stress."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly, food was excellent, entertainment choices were fantastic."
Cons: "The seats were a bit uncomfortable, we were in coach, but they were not horrible. Just lacking lumber support and didn't recline very far."
Pros: "Comfortable lots of entertainment options clean flight attendants were kind"
Cons: "no vegetarian options in the main meals"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Happy helpful crew"
Cons: "Slow to board and no gate on arrival. Had to be bused to terminal and waited ten minutes for the bus to arrive."
Pros: "It was s safe flight."
Cons: "I didn't feel valued and appreciated. Poor options for complementary food service."
Cons: "Temperature on the plane kept shifting from freezing cold to too hot."
Cons: "It was unpleasantly cold in the cabin, blowing cold wind at it could not be better"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. There were plenty of movies to choose from--and I do mean a massive selection. Also, the food was better than I usually expect from airplane food. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I guess this goes for all economy class seats, but there's no room to move. I was lucky to have an empty middle seat (which merits the "good" rating over the "okay"), but even with that, maneuvering was difficult (trying to get stuff from the carry on stored beneath the seat, etc.). Things got worse when the person in front of me decided to put his chair back all the way into my face."
Pros: "Nothing in particular--it was a short flight. I did appreciate that the crew went ahead and turned on the entertainment system even though it was a short transit time (we were on a plane meant for trans-Pacific travel--only reason it was available in the first place)."
Cons: "No complaints here."
Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
Pros: "Good Service"
Cons: "I payed $50.00 USD on a seat so I would have a bigger seat. However, when I got into the plane, the lady that was going to be seating next to me asked me if I could change my seat with her husband; which was a regular seat. In order to avoid an awkward 12 hour flight, I agreed to change my bigger seat for a smaller seat. I felt disappointment that Air New Zealand separates parties and leaves room for uncomfortable situations. I really did not know what to do in this scenario, I paid for that seat but was in a way forced to give it a away without any refund in order to avoid 12 hours seating with some stranger's wife."
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."
Pros: "Snack ordering system Good service (picked up passenger's eye glasses when person was sleeping)"
Cons: "Seats were more cramped than usual"
