Pros: "Great crew and counter staffing. Only took about 10 minutes to get my ticket and half of that was due to some snag with the NZ visa details."
Pros: "GREAT CREW, THEY DID THE BEST THEY COULD. VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL."
Cons: "Ground personnel could have been way more helpful. We came back from Europe and needed to take a domestic flight to Palmerston North.We had a lot of handluggage that was allowed in our international flight, we had purchased an extra suitcase ticket to make sure it wouldn't be a problem. The lady that helped us was not willing to include any more items than 1 small suitcase that weighed only 11 kg, but we had paid for 23 kg. When we wanted to board the airplane we were told we could only take 7 kg each. Which caused problems and stress that we couldn't use after a 40-hour flight from Europe. We discussed this with the lady at the counter which wasn't really helpful to start with, but eventually, she let us board the plane anyway after we had to explain our situation a few times, and after she asked us to weigh our extra items, which of course we're more than 7 kg. We were pleased that at least she let us board our plane in the end. Hopefully next time we won't encounter the same problems."

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.

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Foot rest and seat recline was broken. Food was also just okay."

Pros: "Staff were lovely and food good ."
Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."
Pros: "This flight was on the 777-300 plane leased from EVA. Boarding proved to be a bit of a slow grind due to the inordinate number of families with children on this particular flight. Our fault for not realising this at time of booking. Flight itself went very smoothly. Seats were fine. Not a huge selection of movies to choose from. Felt the crew went about their duties without fuss and ticked all the boxes for me."
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....

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

Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."
Pros: "This flight was great. The team were friendly and the plane was also well air conditioned."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"

Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Pros: "Meal was excellent"

Pros: "Crew very polite"
Cons: "In B222, Headphones didn't fit well in the audio plugs on the sides of the seats thus making very poor quality sounds while listening to music or videos. That wasn't an issue in B149. Just to let you be aware. Thanks."

Pros: "The flight attendants were brilliant! Kind, caring, helpful and smiling.."
Pros: "LCY very efficient baggage drop, flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Ordered special meal, did not get it so did not eat. Cabin crew unfriendly. Old aircraft so could not hear the announcements. Screen did not work. Bags took ages to come out despite being priority. BA has definitely gone downhill."
Pros: "total flight bsolutely excelente custumer service stuffs was very friendly outbound and inbound no dilays"
Cons: "not aplicable"

Pros: "I only like the voucher idea but still doesn't cover up all the other things ."

Pros: "The flight was on time.."
Cons: "The food.."
Pros: "Quick check in online, efficient auto bag check with helpful staff available, Quick efficient boarding, quiet flight less than half full."

Pros: "Was a new aircraft, very clean. M&S food is good (though extra of course)"
Cons: "The new seats are now no different to a no-fills airline, seriously BA, no seat recline option?! 3 times price of Easyjet yet no difference in comfort. No Map display of progress. Shall we call you Beasy jet now then?"
Pros: "Flight itself was very smooth, especially the landing. Food was good also, both the chicken and pasta were prepared well. Pasta could have used a little more sauce. Quantities and variety were also good."
Cons: "I still don't understand why airlines don't board from the back to the front. Would make the entire process go much smoother. The bigger the plane the bigger the problem and delay. I don't mind storing a bag under the seat but there's more stuff taking up legroom so it's hard to get the feet comfortable which is important for those longer flights."
Pros: "New plane and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "Had to pay for any food and drinks. No entertainment but very short flight."
Cons: "outdated inflight entertainment system generally worn and old plane"
Cons: "So out flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt arrived late at the Heathrow airport and, reportedly in a hurry to let us take off, they chose to inconvenience us further by not loading all our luggage. They said on the plane that, if we are missing our luggage, it will come in on the next flight. I don’t understand the logic of the decision to not load our luggage to try to save us time."
Cons: "4 hours delayed.. Uncomfortable seats .. unclear screens"
Pros: "Flight was uneventful (the way it should be) although it was over an hour late leaving LHR. The cabin was clean and in generally in good condition. Leg room was okay for a short flight. Didn't try the onboard cuisine but it looked good in the pictures, although somewhat expensive!"
Cons: "The bag drop at LHR T5 was bad. I was in line for almost 25 mins waiting to use the self-serve system. Almost every one of the 10 or so people in front of me had problems with the system and had to call over a staff member to help. It would have been so much quicker to have the 'old style' way of having check-in staff receiving bags!"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour Gate not announced as indicated on flight board When announced only gave about one half hour to make it to gate and board"
Cons: "BA took us onboard, flew us 40 minutes into Frankfurt and they decided there was a mechanical problem and returned back into Heathrow. The next plane did not arrive until 5 hours later, which lead to missing the connection flight. We were asking for updates and nobody knew anything. We asked to be changed to different airline and they could even do that. They did not compensate or pay anything, which is unacceptable. Horrible customer service."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and horrible customer service!"
Pros: "At least we were able to wait in the lounge."
Cons: "One of the jet bridges malfunctioned. Had to board >500 passengers via remaining bridge. An hour late departing."
Cons: "Because of inability to load baggage at LHR we were over an hour late departing. Upon landing in ORD the CSM noted that many bags did not make flight. This is very poor service."
Cons: "Late like always no even a free drink of water sad sad"
Pros: "The boarding and crew was nice... no complaints."
Cons: "Did not realize that, at least, water was NOT complimentary ... food & drink had to be paid for. Bummer."
Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "If I were a bit older or slower I wouldn’t have made plane. It is unfortunate I had two leg journey to Ireland. BWI - Heathrow- Dublin is a difficult journey with 1 hour layover. I nearly had to push old ladies out of the way to make connection. Very stressful and left headphones in haste to make flight. Not an enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Leg room was decent enough."
Cons: "I’m stuck on a plane for hours. Don’t abuse this by trying to charge me for food and drinks. Especially when I can’t bring my own drinks unless bought at extortionate airport prices."
Pros: "The flight kept getting delayed, but made up during flight so I was able to catch my connection in Frankfurt. Very pleased about that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and the gate was not available until 30 minutes of departure. Tap water, really?"
Pros: "Dinner was quite good. And yes, the seats were comfortable. But the aircraft was probably from the 90's"
Cons: "Entertainment system was really archaic ... No USB slot to charge phones ... Breakfast was ok ok ... not good."
Pros: "Took 2 hrs from the W to get to the airport via metro for Some reason. Had just over an hour to check in. Fast security and great service from the bar crew onboard. Thank you"
Cons: "This plane had an old tv system"
Cons: "We nearly missed the plane due to how closely our flights were scheduled. Then our luggage did not arrive with us our plane. We didnt have time to stop for a snack or water so a small something would have been helpful."
Pros: "Fast as smooth"
Pros: "The plane didnt crash. I liked that."
Cons: "It was Delayed and no one was notified. I was rushing through the endless mess that is London Heathrow only to find a delayed flight - which worked out for me. I just wish I had known. The flight itself was more than 2 hours and not even a complimentary soda? You have to pay for a coke? I've taken 45 minute flights to vegas that offered complimentary drinks and snacks. Pretty odd."
Pros: "Flight was over all comfortable."
Cons: "No snacks were provided."
Pros: "Great flight despite being fully booked, loved the layout of the plane, service was very attentive and warm. In flight entertainment well laid out and easy to operate."
Cons: "Delayed due to the weather conditions"
