Airline reviews

Pros: "Food was delicious and warm. Water was provided throughout the flight. Entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "There were large black box type items underneath certain seats which impacted personal item stowage and leg room."

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. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very 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: "Good for a sheot flight"

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: "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."

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

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"

Pros: "Small puddle jumper, but everything was well organized."

Pros: "trivia was fun"

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."

Cons: "5 hours late. Had to go to work on 2 hours sleep"

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "No complaints"

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: "Excellent flight, ..."

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: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, bathrooms were good."
Cons: "Food was not good. No vegetable choice unless you had prearranged. Breakfast was just ok."

Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."

Cons: "Having to pay for aisle seats. Constantly having to ask for more toilet roll. Forced to have non vegetarian food!"

Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."

Pros: "Crew complete meals and drinks efficiently so passengers can settle quickly for night flight"

Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."

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

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."

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."

Cons: "the person next too me was overflowing in their seat so much they took up a quarter of my spot.. it was not work making the flight uncomfortable by making a stink about it but I paid for a whole seat not 3/4 of one!"

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"

Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."
Cons: "Flight was little late but not too bad."

Pros: "VERY friendly and genuine!"
Cons: "Only one cookie-haha!"

Pros: "The friendliness of the crew."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Good IFE"

Pros: "Quick, efficient, friendly service"

Pros: "Getting on was a delight in Wellington. Having two set of doors open was great."
Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."

Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."

Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."

Pros: "Air New Zealand may be one of the best airlines I've ever flown. Fantastic service and great flight!"

Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful. One of our travelers got sick on the plane and, unfortunately, made a mess in one of the toilets. Without batting an eye, the crew took on the thankless task of cleanup. We noticed that the bulkheads had fixtures embedded in them to allow a small basinet to be attached to the bulkhead. One couple used it for their infant and it seemed to be a lifesaver. I don't know of any other airline that offers this."
Cons: "Our seats were more narrow than normal. Almost to the point of discomfort. We did fly on Air New Zealand from Auckland to Christchurch and the seats on that flight were what I would consider a "normal" width. Meals were served in a timely way but the food was just okay - nothing outstanding. But, we did fly coach/economy."

Pros: "Best airline I've ever traveled on. The staff was amazing! I felt well cared for and tended to. This airline is very attentive to detail. We took a Christmas Day flight and were told that the very slight turbulence was attributed to Santa landing on the plane. A few minutes later, St Nick made a little cameo to say hello to the children aboard! Loved it!!"

Pros: "Airport was easy to get to and the flight was very smooth and comfortable on a twin engine plane that is quite modern (noise level very minimal even though it is a propeller plane). Air New Zealand attendants were super friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Short, friendly people and was on time. Awesome all around"
Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "seats were large, comfortable. layed back nicely"
