Pros: "See previous notes."
Cons: "See previous notes."

Cons: "I was turned away at the gate and was unable to board the plane. It was an awful experience!"

Pros: "I liked sleeping for 10 hrs & arriving in AKL ready to roll!"
Cons: "I paid for seats, but there is no record of my purchase at NZ air."

Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."

Pros: "The crew was great. Really friendly, we got skycouch and it was really comfortable"
Cons: "Food was a bit too rich, maybe a lighter option in the menu would be useful as both were quite thick sauces."

Pros: "The crew member in my section was amazing, he went out of his way to greet each and everyone of us individually. The flight was comfortable, boarding a breeze and on time!"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable."

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."

Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Cons: "Preferred seats in economy class are very uncomfortable if your row is full. Long, miserable flight."

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."

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: "Short flight. No problems."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Airline is pretty good"
Cons: "I had a horrible experience booking with Kayak because normally I should be allowed two bags to check in but I was only allowed one because I booked through kayak."

Pros: "Crew was really nice however slightly absent during the flight."
Cons: "Drinks should have been more frequently offered . Refreshments/water seemed hard to come by I had to chase them down in the galley only to get luke warm water...? Seats are pretty cramped and small with not much room."

Cons: "Better meal as the meat dish was a bit cold when it arrived."

Pros: "flight was great"
Cons: "food could've been a little better"

Pros: "A whole season of New Girl!"

Cons: "No enough blankets when feeling cold"

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

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

Cons: "The plane was delayed for more than one hour which we did not have sufficient time for transfer to LA. We have to run instead of walking."

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

Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"

Pros: "Good seat, very pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment so can't score that. Basic snacks"

Pros: "I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage..."
Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"

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: "I love the entertainment system. The airline attendants uniforms are very colourful."

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."

Pros: "Great flight with wonderful service."

Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."

Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"

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: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"

Pros: "The entire crew was excellent in all areas and all the time even on a 14 hour flight that had been delayed for about 20 hours."
Cons: "When we arrived in Auckland very late, Air New Zealand out me up in a third rate hotel in a very bad part of the city with little to no communication on how to get back to the airport the next day. The customer service number I was given, was mo help at all. Flights were great, but the way they handled the unexpected was very poorly done."

Pros: "Entertainment was great and even leg room was decent for economy seating"
Cons: "There are no personal air vents. I was sweating for 3/4 of the flight and had to ask for the air to be turned down 3 times. The air vents they do have point inwards and do not get the window seats at all. Hope the return flight is better"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."

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

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian options were all very similar. Over a 32 hour flight time I was provided with beans for breakfast/lunch and dinner. I would have preferrred more variety. Also being seated between two others was quiet uncomfortable for a long journey flight."

Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."

Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."

Pros: "Assistance with moving through airport due to a disability"

Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Window seat on my own. Landed early."
Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."

Pros: "Great flight, service, food and crew."

Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "So cramped"

Pros: "One member of the crew did her best to treat me as a premium FF member. That was about it."
Cons: "Qantas really screwed up the operational management of this flight resulting in a long delay into Sydney and then a further delay to Brisbane. Getting the water weight and balance right is FLIGHTOPS 101, but not for this B Team. Much of the flight delay was completely avoidable."

Pros: "the flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "The crew were lazy & rude"

Pros: "Terrible experiences overall and food is very bad."

Pros: "The food and the entertainment onboard."
Cons: "Flight was late and i missed my connecting flight in Sydney."

Pros: "crew amazing seat to tight"
Cons: "wider seat"

Cons: "There was no organization for those of us that were moved to that flight. Shifted from 4 different lines and luggage was not sorted out after customs. Our luggage didn't make it on our flight since someone said since it said CVG, it would be fine. It wasn't."

Pros: "The legroom my seat had - It was near the exit and didn't have a seat in front of it. The flight was only half full which meant room for everyone to spread out."
Cons: "There was hardly any service. The flight left at 9:30pm. We were served dinner an hour later and given a bottled water. Then we never saw any of the attendants until 10 hours later. I had to hunt someone down in order to get some more water."

Pros: "Smooth flight, minimal disturbances, crew extremely courteous and helpful!"
Cons: "Food is below average!"

Pros: "Good seats in exit row"

Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."

Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Food and entertainment options."

Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for a 6’2” tall person."

Pros: "Lovely crew especially Heidi"
Cons: "Nothing, all was well"

Cons: "Movie selection could have been better"

Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."

Pros: "The service during the flights"
Cons: "None.."

Pros: "On-time, Food, Comfort"
Cons: "Special Assistance not provided inspite of it being booked with ticket."

Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Could not eat the in flight breakfast as both contained wheat (I’m coeliac)"

Cons: "Seat backs recline violently and require help from behind to put upright. Cabin crew was less than interested in passenger service . Seat space was less than proper."

Cons: "An old plane for a long haul to Australia, uncomfortable seats, freezing temperature in the cabin, mediocre food. Not what a traveler expects in business class in today’s travel world."

Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"
Cons: "Delay but stuff happens eh."

Cons: "American airlines dont know what passengers need to enter a country and then rebooked me on new zealand air but quantos changed that and i dont know where my bags are. Does the insurance i bought cover any if not all of these inconveniences."

Pros: "The staff were polite and they took care of us well."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled the first night and then was also cancelled the next night I just happened to have been moved to an earlier flight so I didn't get stuck there the second day."

Pros: "Fantastic. the crew was very kind and professional. Food was the best airplane food I have had so far."

Cons: "This airport is disorganised and undersized for the volume of patrons passing through. Was frustrated with the poor response of Sydney airport go manage an obvious failure of their baggage handling system. No fallback procedure was activated(manual for eg) to actually progress baggsge hangling even for those with connections to make. Disappointed and embarrassed by the defensive attitudes of staff who were given no Support by mgt of either airport or airline."

Cons: "Didn’t make this connecting flight from Dallas"

Pros: "Snacks provided were very nice. Flight was shorter than expected."
Cons: "Nothing we didn't like, all was good!"

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: "Singapore airline best for Australia"

Pros: "Crew were generally friendly."
Cons: "Food was appalling. Told I had no choice and then what I got was inedible. Wine selection very small also. Two toilets for all of Business Class - always busy, super small and really substandard."

Pros: "The service, politeness of staff, the food."

Pros: "Friendly and easy"
Cons: "I found the seat really uncomfortable. My back was hurting well before the end of the flight."

Pros: "Mostly everything great."
Cons: "Leg room for me a bit small. Dinner a bit mushy."

Pros: "good"

Pros: "Crew was very courteous and understanding , helping us in best manners."

Cons: "The food you can tell is heavily processed"

Pros: "Wonderful staff and such a easy quick feeling flight"
Cons: "The food had no vegetarian options"

Pros: "Crew member Alex in the Economy main cabin was wonderful. He tried to memorise as many passenger names as he could as they boarded, and clearly has an amazing capacity to do so. His attitude -- that doing this is worthwhile -- is unusual and highly commendable. He immediately put people at ease. He was attentive, helpful, and very pleasant to all passengers throughout the very long journey. He was a remarkable crew member, turning a journey I had dreaded into one that was memorable."

Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"

Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."

Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"

Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."

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."

Cons: "Dash 8 looked tried. Seats need an update"

Pros: "I paid extra for a window seat. Didn’t get it. The plane was hot. The seats were uncomfortable. When we landed we were stuck on the ground for an hour waiting for a bus to take us to the terminal."
Cons: "I wish I was on a different airline on the way home."

Cons: "Slow boarding, not able to select seat in advance"

Pros: "The leg room and the recline was the best I’ve had in a budget economy class, and I was not expecting a snack and two full meals. They also gave each of us a flower when boarding. It was a charming touch."

Pros: "Totally reasonably way to fly to tahiti. It seems like a well run airline."

Pros: "Crew was nice, fresh frangipani flower a nice touch. Seats in economy were BAD. No room and uncomfortable. Breakfast was nice fruit and the omelette was pretty basic"

Pros: "Liked the tahitian atmosphere on the plane."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and hurt my back."

Cons: "Legroom is tight and narrow..smaller than your average space in coach."

Cons: "Very tight seating-uncomfortable. Crew was not very friendly"

Pros: "The entertainment"

Pros: "Super Easy"

Pros: "Service was Great, Food was good."
Cons: "Coke zero was not complimentary"

Pros: "comfortable seats and the flight attendants were friendly. Check in was smooth considering that there were 2 flights leaving within 20 minutes both bound for LA from Papeete."

Pros: "Very solid experience and comfortable"

Pros: "I was able to pick a seat with no one next to me and gathered 2 blankets and 4 pillows and sleep pretty well. I also appreciated boarding back to front and departing on time! Woo! TV Screens were new and updated which was also nice."
Cons: "The movie selection was a lot of sad and intense dramas. A few more comedy's and light hearted films would have been preferable."

Pros: "They board back to front which saves a lot of hassle with overhead bags and such and keeps things moving. I appreciated that all the flight attendants spoke French and English and were very helpful when I needed anything. My flights to and from Tahiti were both smooth sailing. My flight back was a red eye and was quiet so I was able to sleep most of the way."
Cons: "Whoa. That food was TERRIBLE. I'm usually lenient with free airplane food but wow, I don't even know what some of it was. I my second meal looked like fish and turned out to be pork (I think?). They also only came around with the beverage cart once in the 8 hour flight (just before our first meal); I had to ring my call button to get water. The plane was pretty dated as well. I've seen worse but the screens were dated and all of the movies were fairly depressing. First, I'd suggest a couple more comedy's or rom-coms. Even a couple extra family friendly cartoons would be preferable to all the war/drama/dark options. Second, I'd suggest having the movies on demand rather than play one after another where passengers have to scroll through channels and keep catching movies part way through. A simple solution would be to have WiFi and streaming on flights which was also not available. This should be expected with international flight and would allow for on demand movies and music rather than the dated system currently in place."

Cons: "Staff was not attentive in my cabin. English translation of instructions difficult to understand. Food was terrible. Bread was hard. Meal was inedible and not anything resembling breakfast. Cabin was freezing."

Pros: "They have definitely improved in the few years since I last flew with them. The food is still really good for airplane food. Also the service by flight attendants is friendly and attentive. The entertainment offered quite a few options as there were quite a number of movies if different genres and recent releases. I would definitely recommend them over some more expensive airlines."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and food was good. The leg space was decent also, always an important factor for tall people on long flights"
Cons: "The boardin required a long walk to a remote terminal and then quit a long drive to the plane"

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Seats very thin with little to no cushioning. Seats way too close so that when a seat reclines in front, you wind up almost chewing on the seat in front. My seat was broken and did not recline. Should receive some compensation for this"

Pros: "Nice crew. I liked the packers of socks, earbids and mask."
Cons: "The entertainment system was a little outdated. Movies should be on demand, and no tv was offered."

Pros: "seat in business class was fair to poor- unable to fully recline\ food was poor"
Cons: "seating and food"

Pros: "Comfortable airline, good food, friendly service. I would take it again."
Cons: "I don't know if this is representative but we were late both ways (2 hrs and 1 hr). Differently from other airline I've used to do this trip they don't go and offer water during the flight. You can go to get some drinks yourself of course but this is not always easy when your neighbor is sleeping."

Cons: "Three and a half hour delay (while lying to us about why it was delayed) missed my connecting and got to sleep in an airport with no accommodation or recompense on either end. "Island Time" not acceptable for air travel."

Pros: "great entertainment options"
Cons: "horrid food"

Pros: "Old movies little choice"

Pros: "N/C for food, head sets and in flight movies. Crew was very professional and pilot was excellent. I liked that they boarded the plane back to front. Makes more sense. Service was excellent!"
Cons: "Hard to board when everyone lines up and doesn't get out of the way for those to board whose seat numbers were called. The attendant started calling the next numbers before the first group had a chance to get through all the people waiting! You couldn't push thru the crowd because others in front of you were in the same predicament. People were asked to stay in their seats until their numbers were called but they didn't listen. We were an hour late taking off. Food was not very good and I'm not a picky eater. Rolls were hard as a rock and The eggs were uneatable. The lady in front of me reclined her seat all the way back and slept the whole flight so I was uncomfortable the whole way home and couldn't sleep. Her seat was resting on my knees. Very hard to eat off a tilted tray table. Seats very close together so hard to get to the remote."

Pros: "Being a redeye flight, they kept the plane dark for about 4 hours & didn't disturb us. The crew was friendly & professional."
Cons: "The terminal is not air-conditioned, just ceiling fans, so waiting to board was uncomfortable. We had no ability to select our seats so we had to take what they gave us."

Pros: "Free movies rocks. Hawaiian air charges for them. Very good food"

Pros: "I liked getting a pillow and blanket. Movie selection was good but could be a little better."
Cons: "The food selection was "meh." I am a vegetarian and I wish I was told during booking to request a veggie meal. I would have given an "excellent" score with vegetarian options readily available and better movies."

Pros: "Great service, from booking seat assignment to meals, the staff could not have been better,"

Pros: "I liked the staff."
Cons: "Leg room was dismal. Food was not great."

Pros: "The seat was uncomfortable. The staff was not friendly. They were serving food and did not let me pass to get back to my seat. And they did not bother to leave any food for me. The movie selection was limited."
Cons: "It had to be the worse experience ever."

Pros: "It was a very easy and fast check in. The service was super nice, beautiful and very professional."
Cons: "That the flight was over already"

Pros: "The price was good, the service was excellent. The food was good and generous. We didn't have to wait in any lines for getting our boarding pass or checking bags. It was a very quick process. The entertainment was good but I have had a few more selections from other carriers. It was certainly enough to keep one occupied."
Cons: "Can't think of any negatives."

Pros: "Loved that there was a blanket and pillow provided, that they also provided headphones, earplugs, and a sleep mask, and that they served food and wine."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly positive, helpful, and cheerful."
Cons: "There were very few movie choices compared to similar flights with other airlines"

Pros: "This was a wonderful flying experience for me. I was happy with the selection of entertainment, the seats were comfortable, and the crew was friendly. I also enjoyed the food!"
Cons: "We spent a long time on the tarmac at LAX. The explanation was that they were making sure everyone's bags got on board...which I felt was very odd. We left late, and arrived in Pape'ete 45 minutes late. Otherwise, the experience was excellent."

Pros: "The plane was on time."
Cons: "I did not like the schedule. Leaving by 7 in the evening would permit many more connecting flights upon arrival in LA. Leaving Papeete at midnight wss exhausting. There were a lot of empty spaces but when we were assigned seats, we were not asked if we would like a place to stretch out (which we would have!)"

Pros: "They were able to secure our connecting flight at the check in gate which was nice, the tv entertainment was excellent service was attentive."
Cons: "The flight had been delayed over an hour yet still showed as on-time at the airport and on kayak. Had we known ahead of time we could have adjusted our schedule."

Pros: "More space"

Pros: "Crew service was great- friendly."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. So much hardware underneath some there is compromised leg room. Terrible hot food- breakfast in particular."

Pros: "My wife and I have planned a trip to Bora-Bora since we got married in the 80s. I had said that I would not make that long trip without a first class ticket and followed through with this our recent trip. Although the ticket was quite expensive, it was worth every penny. Air Tahiti Nui really understands what "First Class" should be like -they pamper you! They deliver course after course of amazingly good quality food and more drinks than you can possibly consume. All of the flight attendants were sincerely interested in making sure we were all happy...a wonderful experience! darn worth the investment! highly recommended! And remember, this is just the lead-up to arriving in Tahiti; things will only get better when you disembark."
Cons: "There were NO disappointments"

Pros: "The flight personnel are very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "No seat assignment ahead of time is a terrible idea. There is a mad scramble at the airport to avoid middle seats. The check-in procedure in Papeete is primitive and requires waiting on line for an inordinate amount of time. The food on board was terrible. The omelette tasted like cardboard Movie and TV selection were poor"

Pros: "My bag was destroyed, and I was told I had to check my back pack in which was BS n was charged $100 to check it in... getting in contact with customer service about the issue is impossible. The crews customer service was satisfactory, you can tell they don't want to be there. I will never fly them again."
Cons: "It got me to my destination in peace."

Pros: "Amazing service from an extremely key me and attentive staff. The food was also delicious!!"

Pros: "The seat I was in wasn't as crowded in last row center. So I had some recline space to kick back."
Cons: "Screaming baby and sick baby right next to me both flights but can't do anything about that."

Pros: "No agent at gate. I was there 1hour and 15 minutes before the flight. No one was available to help me. Not even kayak!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Flight was empty."
Cons: "It was freezing. I was wearing long pants, two sweat haired, and two blankets and I was still cold. The movies were not great. The headrests were super uncomfortable."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Cons: "Seats were extremely outdated- circa saved by the bells"

Pros: "There were only snacks, no setback entertainment"
Cons: "Add a meal and seatback entertainment"

Cons: "Long haul airlines across Atlantic charging people for drinks and food on flights !! Best call yourself as cheap budget airlines and stop the pretence . Would be useful if this information was shared at booking plus “drip cost feeding” policy is appalling! Frequent traveller and have never seen such an appalling behaviour on long haul airlines"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I spoke to the United person last week to confirm baggage and carry on requirements. He said I could take a carry on when I turned up to the gates I was charged another fee for my carry on bag. What is baffling is that when I arrived at Denver people were getting complementary check in baggage. I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"

Pros: "We arrives early."
Cons: "Very long walk to next gate. No golf carts wanted to bring US. Wife is pregnant"

Pros: "Ol"
Cons: "Oi"

Cons: "On time departure. A comfortable seat."

Cons: "Going and coming back was delayed"

Pros: "Flight was nice and empty"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."

Pros: "Helpful crew and loads of space on bulkhead with bassinet (had to pay extra for the seats though but worth it when travelling with five month old)."
Cons: "Misinformed about luggage being checked all the way to Auckland - like other US airports all luggage must be collected and handed over again for onward journeys. Also travel cot was lost in transit."

Cons: "My suitcase handle was broken"

Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."

Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Sufficient food, quite tasty."
Cons: "Extra charge for spirits. Only beer or wine complimentary. Poor headphones and image quality so overall entertainment mediocre."

Pros: "Not much to like. The flight was okay."
Cons: "Not having free Wi-Fi and sound on the entertainment.I We could have been offered complimentary snacks as well with the beverage."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No snavks"

Cons: "Not much choice of good movies"

Pros: "Good trip and on time"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."

Pros: "easy"
Cons: "nothinh"

Pros: "WiFi and entertainment on board the aircraft"
Cons: "All goof"

Pros: "all smooth"

Pros: "Not a lot of positive to say"
Cons: "Ignorant, rude air hostess, two male hostess, double act the pair of them, if they had of been recorded they would be first today. As I said in my headline, if you hate your job that much find one that makes you happy, United need to do secret shopper experiences on their planes, to quality check their hostess, this cowboys are representing your company and its not good."

Pros: "Not a lot to say really from a positive, In Europe if we had to fly over 4 hours the airlines put on larger planes, this plane was small for a 6+ flight"
Cons: "Small plane for a 6+ hour flight, food is . sub standard, if you want to watch the onboard entertainment you need to do so from you phone or Ipad, you need their app installed first and flash player, if not your screwed. They allow you to download their flash player but it does not work."

Pros: "Entertainment and leg room brilliant!"
Cons: "Good was disgusting"

Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"

Cons: "Delayed for so long! 5 hrs"

Cons: "The movie not updated. No chinese movie. Love the pillow and blanket at business flight."

Pros: "Easy check in. Good flight. Good food."

Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."

Pros: "The United Airlines lady on the desk at Terminal 2 was tremendously helpful (she had an Indian name beginning with S). She helped me sort out my ESTA and ETA for Canada and ensured I got through security without too much delay."

Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"

Pros: "Brisk, efficient cabin crew served food and drink quickly then left us alone to sleep."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 75 minutes "awaiting plane". 20 minute wait when finally arrived at Heathrow for steps down to bus to take us to terminal."

Cons: "Entertainment was awful. You have to watch movies on your phone and then the wifi/app doesn't even work!"

Pros: "We had an aisle each! The staff were friendly too."
Cons: "A slight delay"

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved upon (less sugar and carbs, more fresh vegetables/fruits)"

Pros: "Crew were amazing, so friendly and helpful Entertainment system was so so good Landed early"
Cons: "Overnight wasn't the easiest flight in the seats Serving people coffee when others are probably trying to sleep probably wasn't the wisest idea either Pre flight queue system is just baffling"

Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"

Pros: "Crew did a great job. Air China had much better food service."
Cons: "Seats two small, not enough room to stretch your legs. Bathroom to small. Designed for people less than 150lbs, and 5'-6" in height Not comfortable for people over 6' tall."

Pros: "Security Video was interesting. Seat was wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was tasty, but strange smell was contaminated. Announce was so fast and unclear both English and Japanese. I felt no intention to communicate."

Cons: "The flight was full to capacity"

Pros: "The crew in air Canada is awesome! They were really great and friendly. I'm impressed with their impeccable service even if it was a short flight to Vancouver."
