Pros: "The crew"

Pros: "Super easy"

Pros: "Best flight I’ve been on"

Pros: "Good entertainment. Flight tracker kept breaking."
Cons: "They don't come around with beverages hardly ever (twice on 13 hour flight) and they tend to skip the window seats. They tried to kick me off an overbooked flight even though I paid extra for a picked seat and booked months ago. Mediocre food. Tiny seats and I'm only 5'5". Will never fly again."

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

Pros: "The entertainment was excellent and so was the food."

Pros: "I was disappointed that Air New Zealand charges US15 to reserve specific seats. For our party of 3, that would be US90 RT so I didn't do it. But at the gate I asked for window seats and the attendant gave us excellent seats at the front of the plane."
Cons: "No issues that caused us any problems."

Cons: "Terrible customer service."

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: "Service and biz check in"

Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants"

Cons: "Constant threats about weight of carryons & then didn’t check or weigh anything"

Pros: "Baggage made it all the way to Queenstown from Perth"
Cons: "Check -in staff said that there were no seats available in emergency exit rows so put us in the row in front. We couldn't recline and thete were several seats empty in the emergency exit row behind us."

Pros: "Comfortable seats"

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!"

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: "same as above"
Cons: "unalbe to select seats so we were spread out"

Pros: "Quick boarding"

Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "Punctuality. Confortable plane."

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: "We flew premium economy which included every luxury we could desire. We could not be more satisfied."
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "It was operated by air New Zealand so the service was top notch once I was able to resolve all other issues boarding."
Cons: "We had a flight bought on virgin Australia and operated with air New Zealand. The air New Zealand part was all great plane boarding etc, the horrible part is that we bought baggage allowances with virgin and they never transferred the information to air New Zealand. So there I am from the USA in a foreign country boarding a flight being asked to pay 500 nz dollars for a few kilos when I had already paid for it. Having to produce emails and payment information on something I had done months in advance. Overall I won’t recommend virgin next time I’d book directly with air New Zealand"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"

Pros: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"

Pros: "I was excited to see some notorious places as we flew into Queenstown....however, I wouldn't have known the places if I hadn't been sitting next to someone that knew the area."
Cons: "I can't complain about anything with Air New Zealand....I loved each flight with them."

Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."

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

Pros: "The pilot would tell us as we were flying over different mountains, regions etc, and the flight was not at all crowded, and there is so much more seat space than on any domestic American flight I’ve ever flown!"
Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."

Pros: "Everything was ok"

Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "I thought our male flight attendant was not only slow to offer water, pick up trash, or respond to attendant calls, but he was also rude about it, making excuses when asked about the delays instead of simply apologizing and making sure to do better the next time. Also, the calzone breakfast was pretty bad. But other than that, the flight to LAX was ok. The entertainment system, as usual, was excellent, and we had room enough to stretch out during the long flight."
Cons: "I thought our male flight attendant was not only slow to offer water, pick up trash, or respond to attendant calls, but he was also rude about it, making excuses when asked about the delays instead of simply apologizing and making sure to do better the next time. Also, the calzone breakfast was pretty bad. But other than that, the flight to LAX was ok."

Pros: "Flight was on time, airplane was clean, flight attendants friendly and attentive. Very pleasant flying experience"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"

Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very friendly crew, clean and comfortable."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."

Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment and two of the fight attendants were nice."
Cons: "I didn't care for the family that was surrounding us from all angles; they were constantly in and out of their seats visiting one another while pulling, kicking, and opening and closing the tray tables over and over again. I didn't care for one of the unpleasant flight attendants as well."

Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"

Pros: "Very friendly and frequent service while in-flight. It was great having my own monitor built into the seat to watch available movies or tv shows I wanted to for the duration of the flight. Flight attendants would walk the aisles every two hours and offer water to everyone. I had never flown Air New Zealand before, but now it's one of my top airlines."
Cons: "The only complaint would be that there was no in-flight wifi available onboard."

Cons: "The touch screens on the seats for the entertainment are difficult to use because they are not very sensitive. I found myself having to tap the screen extra hard and repeatedly sometimes before it responded."

Cons: "For coach good food, good leg room and free premium drinks."
