Flight attendants are always pleasant and helpful. Pilot kept us updated.
No refunds for flights that I could not take due to Covid restrictions
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."
Pros: "Nicest crew on the planet. Restrooms stayed clean despite 12 hour flight"
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: "The plane was very comfortable. With decent leg room and nice seats. The in flight entertainment was excellent. As was the crews efficient and professional service. Top star"
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."
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"
Cons: "It ran a bit late"
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: "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: "I liked that there was food available and that they offered complimentary snacks and drinks. Some of the crew members were nice and offered good service. I liked that they offered some type of entertainment and free wifi."
Cons: "I didn't like that some of the crew members were not very nice. I also disliked that some of the crew members drove the food/beverage cart violently through the isles and saw as one of the crew members rammed into another person's leg, to only say "oh sorry" and kept on going. This same crew member missed picking up the trash from an entire row and was throwing trash on the floor. She was more interested in caring for a baby on board (not sure if it was her daughter or family member) than the rest of the passengers. I also didn't like the seats were so close to each other, the person in front of me almost hit my face when he reclined his seat all the way back. There wasn't much room to breath let alone stretch."
Pros: "We liked that we got to watch some entertainment for an economy seat."
Cons: "The check in process was a disaster- and none of the crew knew what they were doing. They were very unhelpful and on topof that kayak did not let us know there would be a $160 fee if we did not order a seat with a baggage. It was not clear on the third party site. It was a very costly for us, a couple who is on a budget. i book From kayak all the time, and know exactly when I am booking an economy ticket vs a more upgrade. We had to pay an unexpected $320 on the day of flight. It was ridiculous and while we were boarding the flight attendants held us up again bc we had not paid the fee. But we tried to pay the fee at the front desk the first time and then we paid it at the gate and then boarded last on the plane. It was awful. The staff did not know anything and we were not treated great. Super unprofessional and disappointed at Kayak for not laying out all the costs ahead of me."
Pros: "All round excellent - great service, food et al."
Cons: "I was charged with an excessive checked baggage of $170 NZ dollars for 1 bag that weighed over 7 kg that Air New Zealand said had to be checked and would not allow as carry on baggage. I challenged the high baggage fee with other Air New Zealand staff, to no avail. I was told that the checked baggage cost for 1 bag had recently gone up from $120 NZD to $170 NZD."
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.... 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: "I never doubt Air NZ , overall Ok ."
Cons: "this flight bit noisy, and felt dirty toilet ..anyway,,, I Like Air NZ .Hope good next time"
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"
Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."
Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"
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: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "My flight was moved up three hours and we were not notified. Two others we were traveling with were. Some people received meals and drinks and the flight attendants had a list of which seats. Apparently we weren't entitled to any. We were not treated the same as the others next to us. It was not an option. Perhaps only Australians were entitled."
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."
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: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."
Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."
Pros: "Flight good. Plane modern model with good entertainment system. Flight crew good."
Cons: "Check in automated systems referring most checking to supervisors. No manual system so supervisors overwhelmed. Chambolic 2 hours."
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: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"
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: "Paid extra $100 for 2”premium “seats. What a joke. And no entertainment for an 11hour flight!!"
Cons: "Food was ok for airplane food"
Pros: "Everything comfy spacious seats row 8"
Pros: "Everything. Loads of leg room."
Pros: "Good IFE"
Cons: "No enforcement of carry on - therefore no bin space"
Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
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."
Cons: "Using a 777 meant longer check in time and was much longer arrival time and baggage collection. Meant I was stuck in Auckland traffic because of the extra time"
Pros: "Significantly more leg room than other competitors! Even with the person's chair reclined in front of me, I was still able to be comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was as good as can be (given that it is airline food), the choices for entertainment were great. Lots of overhead storage!"
Cons: "Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke."
Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
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: "I love air new zealand. Watched dr strange and had yummy breakfast. Crew very friendly"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options--movies and TV shows."
Cons: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."
Cons: "Staff only do the minimum they don’t go out of their way to make your experience special, unfortunately if you don’t ask you don’t get"
Pros: "On time. Very efficient staff. More of this please!"
Cons: "Not a lot!"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "I was stopped at gate check in and taken to one side as the passport control had reported me for being intoxicated. I was injured in the armed forces and have a bit of a balance problem as lost most my hearing. I think drink alcohol any more. I asked for an aisle seat as I'm a big guy but was put on seat E next to a huge fat guy so was unable to sit properly. I couldn't get out of the seat once as he just slept and must of drempt as kept jumping and banging me. I had 1 meal on the over 13hr flight, which I couldn't eat properly as was unable to use the knife & fork due to the huge obese guy next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at all meal times. Which she didn't. So missed all the meals and tea/coffee. I was looking forward to the put a too. The London to Singapore flight was a total let down and I expected so much more from Quantus as they have always been top standard before. Overall disgusted in the service."
Pros: "It was a routine flight and everything was OK but not fantastic"
Cons: "Some of the food served was quite bad .... other options were pretty good"
Cons: "The crew were great it was on time and overall fabulous"
Pros: "Everything, I was upgraded to the upper cabin, crews are wonderfully friendly and warm."
Cons: "First aid kit, in case of sudden nose bleed caused by dry air. Other than that, perfect!"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and very nice. However, as first experience flying internationally with Qantas wasn’t positive.. very proud to be Australian but their mechanical faults doesn’t help in customer loyalty."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical faults for 4 hours. $15 meal voucher is not sufficient to cover the cost of proper meal. Airlines if allocating seats automatically should not put a female in between two males, not a very nice experience. No option to amend seat."
Cons: "Arrival at Terminal 3 at Perth Airport was a real disappointment. It took more than an hour to get through passport control and customs. Woefully understaffed and exhausting after flying from Heathrow and arriving at 11.45pm. Makes me think twice about flying qantas into Perth"
Pros: "crew was very nice"
Cons: "entertainment system malfunction needed a long time to reboot"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Leg room was just ok."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit. It felt more like a cheap budget airline not ‘the spirit of australia’ as branded. The touch screen was so bad that you forced the persons head in front to move when you pressed the screen."
Pros: "Quality of interior"
Pros: "It was my first A380 flight, and overall I was disappointed relative to the Dreamliner. Yet it stands out as a positive the way that Qantas has configured business class on the upper deck. It's quite peaceful. The staff was pleasant, but could have been more attentive. It felt like some cared and others did not."
Cons: "I have flown millions of miles with Qantas, but it's been more than 10 years since my last flights. My expectations were high and i the end I only felt "OK" about the experience. The seats are not competitive with other business classes in the sky. I realize that is about to change. I flew Air Canada into Australia, and while my seat was unfortunately broken, the capabilities and overall comfort of their seats is far superior to Qantas. The business class lounge in Sydney had very poor food options in my opinion, and I was quite peckish after having skipped lunch to travel to the airport for a 4pm flight. The food options on the flight were much better, though overall options / taste were just OK."
Pros: "The business class attention, and the quietness of an A380"
Cons: "Old style ‘ pod’ business seats.They are hard to sit , and not private like newer versions Silly extendable pop up tv screens with poor resolution"
Pros: "The plane was newish and had some more modern conveniences. Foot rest, phone spot with USB plug. New light/shade window shades. Newer style tough screen TV."
Cons: "My only fault was that the food was not terribly good. Pasta was gluey."
Pros: "Smooth boarding Comfortable seat,love the entertainment as I could not sleep. Managed to catch on lots of movies that I have not seen."
Cons: "First stage , food not too crash. Rest fine."
Pros: "Friendly and easy"
Cons: "I found the seat really uncomfortable. My back was hurting well before the end of the flight."
Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"
Cons: "No options for seat choose which totally rubbish don't like deal with Qantas in future"
Cons: "747 not as pleasant or spacious as A380"
Pros: "Friendly customer service crew, nice amenities kit, and quick boarding."
Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Pros: "Cabin crew is friendly. No reschedules or gate changes. Pretty straight forward to catch a plane."
Cons: "First off the planes I flew on were noticeably old."
Cons: "Flight being delayed so I missed a meeting"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, in flight entertainment was good, food was good"
Pros: "prompt checkin, boarding, baggage came out fast"
Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."
Pros: "Crew was amazingly helpful in all my enquiries"
Cons: "All amazing nothing to complain about it"
Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."
Pros: "Lots of room plane not full. LUCKY !!!! Crew helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Took a while for me to figure out audio media system ??"
Pros: "Premium Economy was a good upgrade for me, it really helped on my way to my destination so I could sleep on the flight and then start my day when we landed. The Movie & Menu selection was enjoyable. This was a good flight with an attentive and courteous crew!"
Cons: "Overall, the cabin could use some updates. Seats feel's very 1980's. The older LCD screens generate a lot of heat and wash out the picture a bit, there are better LED/OLED options for airlines on the market."
Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"
Cons: "tv monitor didn't work well."
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."
Pros: "Great staff, overall comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "Our vegetarian meals were bland and repetitive; dinner and breakfast pretty much identical. We received little processed fruit cups both meals, while the others had a nice fresh fruit entree."
Pros: "Great entertainment, food, and beverage service."
Pros: "Crew are professional and food is good quality!"
Cons: "The cabin is way too old and out of date, especially considering alternative business class options. Time for an update Wantas before it hits your bottom line (if it hasn't already)."
Cons: "Poor boarding procedure in Melbourne. Delay badly handled, missed important connection. Business class inflight entertainment dos not work!"
Pros: "Crew was very professional. Entertainment was good. Pillows and blankets were availanle when we arrived."
Cons: "We were sporadicaly with water and ice from above. The arm rests were uncomfortable and some were broken. Food was only so so and for international flyers, the menu was not able to be fully understood."
Pros: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection put on another carrier that flight then delayed arriving 4.5 hours late. Second leg frequent flyer points claim on other leg denied even though original flight qualified. Still chasing Qantas to get points."
Pros: "The design of the storage on the back of the seat in front is very clever and makes a huge difference - e.g. foot rest The entertainment system is very good Food was excellent for plane food"
Cons: "Movie choices are not as many as Qatar or Emirates business class."
Pros: "Standard stuff. Nothing particularly worth mentioning. Had worse & had better."
Cons: "Food is disgusting. Like warmed up, over-salted baby food. For a 'premium' airline, I would expect more."
Pros: "Good fresh food and generous portions plus extra snacks"
Cons: "Plane much toooo...small for a 5 hr flight. I am 1.82m and tired of other passengers clambering over me"
The canceled the flight without notifying me in any way. Even the day before the flight I got an email notifying me of the still old (and no longer accurate) flight itinerary. When I arrived in Auckland to find out I no longer had a flight out of there, I felt stranded. I was told normally they would offer standby for the next flight (which would’ve been fine!) but they didn’t have any to Dunedin that day. I had to buy another $325 flight though another airline day of that they did not cover. Would not recommend. .
Pros: "Crew was so helpful"
Cons: "Food ...special ordered food didnt make it in any flight. And quality of food needs bit improvement"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Service was not very kind on either of our Fiji air flights. I honestly will avoid flying with Fiji air in the future—much better airlines to choose from."
Cons: "The seats were broken - did not stay reclined. Also the seat pocket had gaping holes in them - couldn't place anything properly."
Pros: "super friendly crew making sure u had snacks and drinks ,smiling the whole time. thank.you!"
Cons: "maybe if i could hve plugged inmy own headphines but no big deal. thank you!"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "LAX has to get its remodeling completed. Getting to Tom Bradley International terminal and taking the bus to our plane was not impressive. The food on Fiji Air is not good."
Pros: "Coach seats reasonably comfortable. Coach bar service outstanding."
Cons: "Coach food quality, in-flight entertainment, and between meal snack service are average."
Pros: "Very nice and polite"
Cons: "Food was not good Movie selection was poor"
Pros: "Crew and comfort"
Cons: "Entertainment & Meal"
Pros: "Some crew members are excellent and some are flat."
Cons: "Food is kind of bad"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest. Movies were mostly older and good PG at worst."
Cons: "Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest BUT very cramped in Basic Economy. I’m short and couldn’t even put my seat back for entire 11 hours because man behind me was so tall. Meals did not include any salad but did have small amount of veggies."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Company in the plane Stewards were indeed what saved the whole ordeal with Fiji Airways for me."
Cons: "Not leaving at the advertised time both from SFO and NAD Not having enough overhead space in the NAD to TBU flight."
Pros: "Can't beat that. Bigger seat, better leg room, comfortable seats."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff. Loved the leg from Nandi to Auckland."
Cons: "Having to repack our bags when the total among the three of us flying was within limits. And then still having to pay an extra $60 US. when we didn't get it quite right by about 2 ks. However you did let my wife's wheelchair on without payment thanks for that. I am an ex pilot so it is difficult for your staff to try and explain weight ratios, and the dangers of extra weight.. Then being made to take 1 point something kilos into another lighter bag. However the staff were very good about it. not their fault that they find themselves having to talk through something that just doesn't ad up. However we enjoyed the flight, and the help we received transferring from a very late plane to one almost waiting in Fiji. :-)"
Pros: "Ilana, the attendant at the check in was so amazing!!! She went out of her way to find our friend a seat close to us. We just loved everything and everyone about Fiji airways. THANK YOU!!"
Pros: "Food, comfort & on board entertainment not the best but for the price of the flight it was well worth it. The flight crew and those on the ground in Nadi were amazing. Fantastic service all round. Don't forget to use the Premier Lounge in Nadi if you're there for a few hours. FJ$100 for full lounge access. It was an absolute pleasure. Best way to get to the USA from NZ."
Cons: "IF it weren’t for the freezing cabin temp, I wouldn’t have needed. blanket that smelled like everyone’s feet had been wrapped in it. The breakfast was lukewarm, and some parts were even still cold that should hve been hot."
Pros: "All service on board was great"
Pros: "the crew always smiling."
Pros: "Most people who work for the airline are kind."
Cons: "The quality isn’t there... vegetarian meal was the same on both flights and beyond below par. Planes seem to be pretty past there prime in the 4 flights I have been on. Check in process is a nightmare without any automated options that backs everything up. When I arrived in Los Angeles and found that two zippers had been torn from my bag and one pocket open, the baggage staff scoffed at my claim and told me to go speak to a third party that handles baggage claims... I’ll just steer clear next time."
Pros: "Very comfortable and the pilot landed the plane perfectly in bad weather! Thank y'all Fiji Airways!"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."
Pros: "The movie choices"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane... Even with jackets and blankets on!"
Pros: "The flight itself was good, the front end/airline was not so good..."
Cons: "They were a minimum 45 minutes late (one 2 hour, 2 one hour) for every flight. Their running late caused us to miss our connection to Brisbane, so they sent us to Sydney. The ,late flight into Sydney cause us to miss our flight into Brisbane (our ticketed destination city). As we de-planed on the Jetway was a woman holding a sign with 12 - 114 names on it, we were one. She told us to go the the transfer desk and they would help us. We had never been in Sydney, could not find a transfer desk (there was none) found the ticketing counter - nobody there, found the airline office - nobody there, went back to the ticket counter nobody still there, asked a competing airline, they directed us to an air travel management office, where we found Fiji Air personnel. They were surprised we were not told where to go. they tracked down the office manager. We finally met with him at 1:40 PM, he told us our flight was in the domestic terminal and scheduled to leave at 2:00 PM. There was no way we could make it to the plane on time. He was rather rude to us and asked us how we thought we were getting to Brisbane, We responded with "I don't know as we've never been here before". Having never been there. we did not know there was an international and a domestic terminal at the Sydney airport. He told us who we were to fly out on and he was going to call over to the other airline and straighten it out. We went to the domestic terminal tried to check in for our flight, but we could not. That airline called Fiji Air to find out why, after half an hour they were told Fiji Air would not honor our flight as we were noted as "no Shows"/. We had to book another flight to Brisbane. The flights were great, we have had VERY BAD EXPERIENCES with the ground personnel,"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and efficient. it was a pleasure to fly with them."
Cons: "The entertainment system had EXACTLY the same movies/shows we had on the flight over. Since we flew like 14 hours, we saw everything we wanted to see the 1st time. Maybe offer different choices on southbound and northbound itineraries."
Pros: "Staff very good, food and beverage service was delayed or postponed due to turbulence but staff made up for it when service resumed."
Cons: "Entertainment movies not very many new releases."
Pros: "Aircraft was comfortable."
Cons: "The stranded in Apia."
Pros: "Great choices for entertainment; food was hot; crew was excellent to the point of bringing a hot moist towel to wash face/hands with in the morning before serving breakfast; boarding went quickly with having 2 rows to fill in, not just one; the best, however, was the cabin crew bringing water consistently through the night to those that were awake. My husband even took a glass and held it for me while I was snuggled under the blanket. Kudos, crew!!"
Cons: "HA! For me to find something 'wrong' would be hard! Maybe the headphones didn't fit the head just right and couldn't hear equally well out of the speakers? Maybe a bit more leg room for my extra-tall husband?"
Pros: "I really appreciated how the crew enforced window shades down for the majority of the flight. It really helped me sleep like I was hoping to so that I can be better adjusted to the time change and reduce jet lag."
Pros: "Food was really good not many airline offer free meal"
Cons: "Forms and then again on computer"
Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew."
Cons: "That we had a window seat, but on getting to Nadi found that had been given away and we had two seats in the middle section. Not real happy about that."
Cons: "The food was not very good."
Pros: "Excellent service from crew members. Genuine Fiji hospitality"
Cons: "Angled seats and limited IFE"
Pros: "Great views, fun airport w live music...seeing storm over Auckland"
Pros: "Flight attendants were terrific, nice to be able to drink and eat with no worries after a week in Christmas Island."
Cons: "I would Jhabvala liked to have a choice of seats in a plane that was not full. Some people had a whole row while others were full."
Pros: "free food and wine and beer"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor with old screens coming down from the ceiling. No choice of movies."
Pros: "The plane interior is decent & clean for the most part."
Cons: "I had to call Fiji airways 10 times and explain the situation to 10 different people, got hung up on 7 times, & no one ever called me back to resolve the issue. I ended up having to pay $100 to change a flight because of their cancellation... Flight attendants were bossy and rude. One blew a whistle at a passenger when they got up to use the bathroom after we landed."
Cons: "Boarding passes were not properly issued causing us to miss connection in LA. Flight left Nadi an hour late and although pilot indicated time would be made up, a 10+ hour flight resulted in less than 15 minutes of time made up. There is no possible reason a flight of this length could not make up the entire deficiency. We were told customer service reps would be available for passengers with tight connections. The customer service rep basically told us there was nothing she could do since we had to go thru customs. Will never fly this airline again. Fly to New Zealand previously on Air New Zealand and will use them in future. Price difference is not worth the service deficiencies."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised plenty of legroom and the service was great. Good value and would definitely fly with them again"
Pros: "Lots of legroom. Clean, new plan. Friendly qnd efficient crew."
Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment consoles for the whole middle section went out and even a reboot could not correct the problem. No one with expertise to troubleshoot the problem."
Pros: "Food options were good. Service was great. I think it was a great options with the price I paid."
Cons: "Seats are narrow for some people. It can be uncomfortable if the person in front reclines their seat, since the rows are close together."
Pros: "Everything was great! Can't wait to go back."
Cons: "The button to call a flight steward means nothing. I pushed the button over 5 times and saw others do the same and no one came - it took 15 minutes! In any airline 2 rings and no matter what someone would come if to say wait please. I experienced this 3 out of the 4 flights I had with Fiji Airways. Terrible!

Pros: "good noise cancellation"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Surprise that British Airways does not have internet access on its transatlantic jets. Delta and Swiss air both had the last time I flew them."
Pros: "Pilot announcements were very clear"
Cons: "Too many oversized cabin bags"
Cons: "A crew member fell ill before take off so we had to taxi back to the terminal - and extra 1.5 hours !"
Pros: "Flight was excellent crew awesome."
Cons: "I badly needed more leg room."
Pros: "The crew were all nice."
Cons: "Aircraft VERY aged--NO charging ports?! Entertainment screens tiny and old touch screen interface, slow to respond. Remote control on arm rest=accidental volume changes and such. Do NOT get the veggie pasta, it's terrible. Overhead bins do not hold large bags correctly."
Pros: "Crew were nice, good enough selection of entertainment. Quick disembarking"
Cons: "Seat not super comfortable. Had room, but the lack of armrest being able to move fully up, and the fixed position of the sides of the headrest were frustrating.1"
Cons: "Big difference between aircraft and crew on syd to singapore and the excellent sin to lhr sector"
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "no air vent in my row. no complimentary food and drinks"
Pros: "The fact that it got me there"
Cons: "Food - my dog wouldn’t eat it, Entertainment - woeful same movie just different title, Late again they must specialise in being late"
Pros: "Staff/crew were fantastic, extremely friendly, very down to earth, like family"
Cons: "I thought the food was very ordinary. Selection and type of food could have been more interesting. Bread stuffs did not seem fresh, but thawed from frozen items"
Cons: "I would have appreciated knowing ahead of time that 1) I was seated at the emergency exit, 2) that as a result, I would not be allowed to have my carry-on at my seat. Communication would have been appreciated."
Pros: "good service. crew speaks English."
Cons: "cost of baggage"
Pros: "First bed and bedding Food was nice Drinks are great - both choice and quality"
Cons: "Lighting in the cabin No dedicated channel to board and to go through immigration on arrival"
Pros: "The wine was good"
Cons: "Least expensive tickets. Food was the least expensive, very popr"
Pros: "Service and staff were great."
Cons: "Food not so good. Storage locker against the side bulkhead was constantly difficult to open."
Pros: "Pilot was a real pro Cabin crew active and supportive The 787 was sparkling clean"
Pros: "Nice efficient crew"
Cons: "Announcements on plane very loud sometimes"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly, attentive and even observe passengers not getting good sleep. Their smiles made the trip a more pleasant one."
Cons: "Headrest... to nitpick, but that is probably a standard one. If headrest may be further adjusted to suit passengers of different height."
Cons: "5h before take off, it was impossible to have 2 seats next to another!!! we were even on different floors in the plane! the employees at the counter and then in the Heathrow airport were not able to join. on mentioned that the plane had been overbooked. I thought these practices had stopped. only the employee at the gate managed to move us to be at least on the same floor of the plane. very disappointed."
Pros: "Comfortable wear in business cabin"
Cons: "Food poor. Service mediocre. Fails to compete with middle eastern competitors"
Pros: "Flew Sydney to Heathrow and was very comfortable in my seat. Seemed wider than most and at 6ft 3 I had plenty of room to move my legs. Pleasantly surprised and actually looking forward to going home next week - just hope its the same 777 plane ! :)"
Cons: "The food was excellent - just not enough of it in between meals. No snacks offered and none that I could find anywhere! Will be making sure to bring some back with me on my flight ! Minor complaint on an otherwise excellent trip."
Pros: "British Airways provides complimentary amenities in coach not found on US carriers: A hot meal, snacks, beverages other than water or coffee/tea. Their media selection is superb. They seem to work hard to make a nine-hour flight over The Pond as tolerable as possible."
Cons: "My comfort was better on the return leg because I had the extra leg room that comes with being seated on the emergency exit row. However, regular coach seating is at best tolerable. You are packed like sardines and the seats are firm, to put it mildly."
Pros: "Comfortable seats Great raspberries and blueberries. Delicious."
Pros: "The cabin crew was nice. The main dish was good. The entertainment choices were decent and the system worked fine. I don't sleep in planes so it's important to me. I got a forward facing seat so at least I didn't have to deal with the alternative."
Cons: "Not being able to make seat assignment earlier (i.e. 24h) was lame for a business flight. The second meal was mediocre, as was coffee. The screen of my entertainment system was scratched and cracked, but it didn't disturb me too much."
Pros: "Everything was absolutely spot on except for larger than average people not being catered for."
Cons: "Being a big lad (6'6") it was difficult to get comfortable even with the extra leg room."
Pros: "Arrived safe"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats; airplane appeared unkept; no refreshments were offered"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment Serbians beverages"
Cons: "There is no - zero - comfortable way to sit in economy on this plane. I'm a six foot tall man and getting in and out of the seats just to use the restroom (which were the smallest I've ever seen on any passenger jet), was nearly impossible. I will never fly this class on an Airbus 380 again."
Cons: "The BA crew at the check in needs improvement. BA has different standards from other carriers that make it confusing. Bag sizes for on board carry on luggage accepted by other carriers are not accepted by BA. So you can fly in with one carrier and then BA says that the bag cannot go on the flight. In a different flight our flight was cancelled and rescheduled to the next day. I have been trying to find out how to get compensated for this as it says on their website and have not been able to do that yet."
Pros: "crew friendliness"
Cons: "no charging ports"
Pros: "The service was great, plane was clean, entertainment was great, food was OK but not great."
Cons: "In economy the seat spacing was very limited. It was worse than many US domestic flights. If the seat in front was reclined, the TV screen was about 12-15 inches from your face."
Cons: "Friendly staff, clean plane"
Pros: "The food was better than expected and the crew did everything they could to keep us comfortable"
Cons: "That plane was so gross. The upholstery was stained and frayed. It was also insanely small. Holy cow!"
Pros: "The crew was great and boarding was efficient."
Cons: "No wifi on board. What plane in this day and age isn't equipped with wifi? Especially on a 9 hour flight! Food was terrible."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "In world traveler class when the person of front of you puses the seat back be prepared to hold on to your drinks and food."
Pros: "The update"
Cons: "Paid extra for seats that I did not get"
Pros: "Customer service was really nice from checking bags in to the in crew flight team"
Cons: "No complementary drinks and no entertainment"
Pros: "Boarded us pretty quickly at Heathrow"
Cons: "Crew was not polite and helpful during the leaky hydraulic pipe incident. Did not try to reassure or let people know what was going on. It was very hot at the rear of the plane, could not breath. They served the food slowly and portions were smaller than normal. Small and boring selection of movies this month."
Pros: "I fly a lot between North America and Southeast Asia (usually on SQ). My BA flight was a perfectly acceptable long distance flight for a song, so that its best aspect was the low price. It was much better than any US airline's flight to SE Asia that I have been on from time to time, and was a solid B to B+ against the standard SQ A to A-. I flew from Singapore to Charlotte with no issues, then returned two days after their IT disaster in a half empty airplane. I expect they continue to discount while they try to rebuild their brand, so I suspect this kind of flight stays quite a good value for the next year or so."
Cons: "I ordered vegan meals. The dinner on the way back to SIN was fine, but the veggie breakfast was absolutely pathetic. Most of the vegetarian food was okay."
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "No indication given of delay. kayak knew before ground staff. On arrival parked at cargo terminal and had to get bus. Then stuck on bus for 10 minutes as could not get terminal fooors open. They turned heating up at full blast with no air. Surprised nobody passed out"
Cons: "Boarding by steps, being charged for coffee when all other airlines provide it as complimentary service. morning snack would have been nice. The head flight attendant have a heavy Italian accent and spoke English so fast he couldn't be understood."
Cons: "None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak"
Pros: "Food was decent as was entertainment. Pretty new aircraft and lavatories were clean throughout flight."
Cons: "Crew was ignorant yet again, seats had poor legroom blocked my media box."
Pros: "We started to board a bit late at Heathrow and finally took off 1 hr and 15 minutes late due to some technical malfunction. The flight attendants's supervisor was very rude. Everyone else I interacted with was nice."
Pros: "Clear instructions on board Food was good Service from the crew was good"
