Read more about Air New Zealand

Boarding instructions on one leg of my journey were not well communicated at the gate (Melbourne to Auckland)

Pros: "The employees of Air New Zealand always make our trips excellent."
Cons: "I always have trouble hearing the announcements in the waiting areas at the airports. Why can't they (airports) fix that."
Cons: "Please have the option to order Kosher meal!! The 1st air company that I use, that don’t offer this basic service!! Ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Only a 25 minute flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "very comfortable reclining seats for sleeping. It was a lot of work for the attendants setting up each bed and then taking it apart. But for me, it was much more comfortable than the flight from SFO to ACK."
Cons: "Movies did not change from November to December. I watched 3 on the way to NZ in Nov and they were still the only 3 to interest me on the return flight. Disappointed."
Pros: ":)"
Pros: "Super easy"
Pros: "Good quick flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Easy flight."
Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
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: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"
Pros: "They took care of you. Meals were good. Excellent airline"
Cons: "Superb airline"
Pros: "Service and biz check in"
Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked. My son had purchased my ticket and not bought luggage voucher. They helped me get online and buy voucher. Would recommend airline to anyone traveling in that part of world."
Cons: "It was a very positive experience. No complaints. I will definately fly Air New Zealand when that is an option."
Cons: "5 hours late. Had to go to work on 2 hours sleep"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "it was very cold"
Pros: "After the schedule for my Houston flight was delayed by 3 1/2 hours, customer service was able to put me on a flight thru LAX which got me back to my original ORD arrival time and avoided an overnight stay before continuing on home. The meal vouchers offered were an unexpected bonus. Thanks."
Cons: "Foot space in front of seat was limited."
Pros: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."
Pros: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"
Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."
Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
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: "The crew was super nice and so accommodating. They were all quickly available during the entire 14 hour flight, and always had a smile. I thought the food was nice as well, and there were so many entertainment options."
Cons: "Having a bit more room during such a long flight would have been nice!"
Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."
Pros: "Two bathrooms just for PE, good food, attentive crew, nice wide seats, ample legroom with footrests, nice headset."
Cons: "You can’t sleep to music because each track has to be selected individually."
Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."
Pros: "everything, crew best. Bit chilly and the FA put a blanket over my name without me even asking! Yummy food, I was late to boarding but easy to get on. Can't wait until they get Wifi!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The seat and leg space, blankets and pillows. Good dinner and breakfast and great sleep between"
Cons: "Engine noise at times drowned out the sound system"
Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."
Cons: "Captain's sense of humor."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, crew was nice, flight was very smooth"
Cons: "Took forever to take off, but not company fault"
Pros: "Everything, felt safe"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "REally liked the plane, crew, and accommodations."
Cons: "Our flight from Rarotonga was 2.5 hours late, causing us to leave Rarotonga at 2:40 AM ! The flight and crew were wonderful, but we were exhausted as sleep time was cut short because of the lateness of the flight."
Pros: "Everybody was so helpful and friendly. The seating was quite pleasant although my boyfriend and I are used to staying next to each other. The entertainment was extensive keeping anybody busy for a long flight and the menu was broad enough and good quality. This is the way all flights should be!"
Pros: "Service was great, kids were comfortable entertained and I loved the movie selection."
Cons: "Food wasn't good but that is low priority for me"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Not a problem, anywhere. For a long day, that is appreciated."
Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"
Cons: "Only issue was demand of passenger behind me that I not recline my seat back. I complied and chose not to bring it to crew's attention but was unable to travel comfortably for last leg of our 20+ hour trip."
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."
Pros: "The food was good, the accommodation, although it been a long flight everything was allright"
Pros: "Free cookie!"
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."

It was great to have entertainment screens on this flight.

Pros: "Crew ok"
Cons: "Seat comfort and meals left a lot to be desired..."
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."
Pros: "Thank for the great staff"
Cons: "The chicken dish was a disappointment q"
Pros: "Nice amenities, very efficient"
Cons: "Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight"
Pros: "It was our first time flying on Qantas. everything was above expectations."
Pros: "premium economy! excellent service in LAX by QF ground staff on transfer"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable & I loved the flexible head rest. The food was good. The flight attendant were friendly & attentive. It was my first time flying Qantas & it is my new favorite airline!"
Pros: "Great crew! Cheap flight"
Cons: "Food okay, flight delayed both ways, seating uncomfortable in economy."
Pros: "Generous & kind flight crew, lots of in-flight entertainment, and a smooth and timely flight."
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Cons: "I tried to change the date and/or the routing for the return flight, but it would have cost more than to buy a new one-way ticket, so I didn't use it at all -- and got no refund."
Pros: "Qantas notified me in plenty of time when flight was cancelled and automatically placed me on next available flight. Customer service was good in this regard."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rescheduled flight was delayed. Plane was noisy."
Cons: "Qantas actually had to book me on jet star since they failed. Waiting 12 hrs now"
Pros: "Overall feel of the flight. The focus in safety"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3.5 hours. Limited selection of movied"
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 had a nice seat."
Cons: "Staff were unattentive, nasty"
Pros: "good"
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Pros: "Great service, easy flight."
Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."
Cons: "The leg room is obviously minimal in economy but compared to Singapore Airlines this was cramped and when the seat in front reclines it's almost impossible to find a comfortable position if you're over 5 foot 9! food was below par."
Pros: "Temperature just right and pillows, blankets and better than average reclining seats"
Cons: "Food - too institutional. Bread over cooked, meats tough so couldn’t eat more than half of any meal."
Pros: "There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from. Breakfast was actually pretty tasty, and snacks and water were offered quite frequently. The seat was reasonably comfortable, and reclines back a decent way. For how huge the plane was, the boarding process was super fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Seats were still rather cramped for my poor husband, who is 6'3. It is very hard to get out of your seat if you're in a window and all the seats on front are fully reclined, and I am relatively spry! Can't imagine an elderly or debilitated person trying to do so! The in flight movies were great, but you had to use the headphones they provide, and none of the 3 pairs I tried worked well. All had constant static. Although the seats recline far, they also do it abruptly and are hard to get to come back up. The dinner (we had the beef) was not very good. The quality of the ground beef was what you would expect from a fast food place. The worst part of the flight was that the sat ALL the infants in the same area on the plane, and all right around us. 5 of them, to be exact. 17 hours of on and off screaming babies! My husband had to move to a different seat to get some sleep! Thankfully, I can sleep through anything. Overall, less terrible than I expected a 17 hour flight to be, but could have been better. Some crew were very nice and helpful and others not so much. The first woman my husband asked told him (rather abruptly) that he wouldn't be able to use his CPAP machine. Then a really nice guy helped him get it set up. The turbulence was a bit scary for me, and the way the captain would announce it didn't help! He'd just say "all passengers and crew be seated and fasted your seat belts" in a rather grim tone as the plane shook violently."
Pros: "The service and the meals and snacks- American airlines do not provide any of those things anymore, Qantas did domestically as well as on our international flight."
Cons: "Seat room on the international flight - became uncomfortable after over 17 hours and could not afford upgrade to business or 1st class."
Pros: "It was nearly impossible to get in or out of our seats when the chairs in front of us were reclined. When they are straight up it was no problem. Legroom was ample and the blankets and pillows were a nice touch."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly. The food was plentiful and mostly delicious. Every attempt was made to make the trip as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The economy Seating area is very small for such a long trip."
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our flight were great and did their very best to take care of the customers even in poor circumstances."
Cons: "Our original flight from Sydney to SFO was cancelled due to mechanical issues after boarding over an hour late and then sitting in our seats on the tarmac for over 3 hours. The flight was rebooked for the next day, but on a much older and far less comfortable plane. The plane had no room of any kind, especially for a taller person, and there was no choice but to put your seat back if the person in front of you had. The inflight entertainment was also far less advanced. After having such an excellent flight to Australia I was highly disappointed by the flight home. Other than putting us in a free hotel for the night and paying for taxi fares there was no compensation which cost me a full day of work."
Cons: "My seat got moved when I had pre-selected them. The power outlet between the seats didn't work so I couldn't use my CPAP. The earphones/jack would only have sound in 1 ear."
Pros: "easy boarding,efficient staff, lots of entertainment options, great pilot - very smooth flight and excellent landing"
Cons: "got stuck in middle seat, def not comfortable; crew not very cheery"
Pros: "Very comfortable business class seat, great business lounge in Singapore."
Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."
Pros: "Overall, one of the best international flying experiences I have ever had."
Pros: "Extraordinary crew energy, plenty of food."
Cons: "Ran a bit late and boarding queue was unusually chaotic."
Pros: "Cleanliness, really courteous staff, comfortable seats, entertainment from an app :-)"
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Pros: "Service was pleasant. Entertainment selections were quite nice -- great to have so many movies and music from which to choose."
Cons: "Dinner portions were insufficient -- a tiny box of food, though delicious, left me feeling hungry. Legroom was cramped -- As a 6'2" (188 cm) man, I always have request aisle seating but was given a middle row seat. These should be reserved for shorter passengers only who do not require many ups and downs from their seats during the flight. No one should have to pay to choose a seat ahead of time! Except Qantas, I've never seen an airline charge to choose a regular, non-premium seat. That is ridiculous to charge $30, especially when the airfare was over $1300."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, my flight was delayed as a result of a mechanical problem. This resulted in missing my connecting flight. To make the story extremely short, qantas was not helpful or forthcoming with information regarding a way to get to my final destination. This left my wife and I stranded in a different countries airport for hours."
Pros: "I flew to Sydney from Dallas and back and I had no problems or issues. I would fly Qantas again."
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Pros: "Everything was fine. I have flown with Qantas many times, and it was same as usual"
Cons: "I had no problems"
Pros: "They made us sit in the plane for close to 4 hours without any food. I almost passed out as the plane was so warm (AC broken) and they didn't give us anything except a small cup of water. The delayed made me miss my connection which couldn't be rearranged."
Cons: "Good was awful but I appreciated that they had gluten free options."
Pros: "The space and comfort was excellent"
Cons: "Just wanted a few more snacks during the flight. Apart from that everything else was superb."
Pros: "Fog prevented the plane we where to fly out on from landing however planes from other airlines where landing. This lead to a 6 hour delay."
Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."
Cons: "Special food was very bad. It smells."
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."
