Airline reviews

Pros: "Aircraft was a new A320. Superb. Loads of legroom and extra width . Great flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew"

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 great!"

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: "The sky couch is always very nice."
Cons: "We told the crew the water tasted funny, like dirt, they said it was fine, just had lemon in it. Pretty sure we know the difference between lemon and dirt taste."

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: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Was a little more leg room... makes all the difference"
Cons: "Was pretfy much Ok"

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: "Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "The meal choices were chicken curry or beef on this flight. They ran out of beef quickly. Why would you serve something like curry on an airplane that’s not at all agreeable to at least half the people on the plane and then force the rest of us to eat it when you run out of the other option? My seat recliner was broken so I got to sit straight up for 12 hours."

Pros: "Air NZwas a good carrier"
Cons: "Kayak to Virgin Australia to Air NZ - we had a long layover and surprised by 0 bag check in and very expensive charge, When asking for help all told to go to the other : for earlier flight - huge charges - no help : bags - no help and we paid onerous amounts. All bad and with lots of frustration trying to get help."

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

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."

Cons: "If the customer is given the option of special meal - 1. the special meal should be what one selects. I selected Hindu meal as per option and was being served Veg Jain Meal. 2. Should be made available. Though I booked the flight for both me and my wife and the special meal request was for both, the wrong Veg meal was made available only to my wife. Something is not right with their system. One you serve what you make us select and then the system is recording only for one passenger."

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: "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: "a) My vegetarian meal the I specially requested. b) The customer service on the phone, before my trip in California and the customer service of the flight attendants on the two flights of my trip. c) The blanket and pillow every passenger was offered on the long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland. d) The pilot or pilots handled the small amount turbulence we on the plane felt well so I did not feel uneasy at those times."
Cons: "For an economy class series of trips, I have nothing bad to report."

Pros: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."

Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"

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

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The captain was late to the airport so our flight was delayed"

Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything FA even got our bags out while taxiing into gate"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Good IFE"
Cons: "No enforcement of carry on - therefore no bin space"

Pros: "Quick, efficient, friendly service"

Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. There were plenty of movies to choose from--and I do mean a massive selection. Also, the food was better than I usually expect from airplane food. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I guess this goes for all economy class seats, but there's no room to move. I was lucky to have an empty middle seat (which merits the "good" rating over the "okay"), but even with that, maneuvering was difficult (trying to get stuff from the carry on stored beneath the seat, etc.). Things got worse when the person in front of me decided to put his chair back all the way into my face."

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."

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

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: "Great service and food. The people were super friendly. Cabin was spacious and comfortable. Great kiwi experience!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very Innovative. Love the Premium Economy seats. And unlike many other airlines that do Premium Economy the food is not just economy food. It is far better and as good as anything you get in Business."

Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The seats were too cramped."

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: "Crew was really helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Directing people from the terminal to the plane. Need a better strategy due to the fact that the steps are so steep, directing to the rear door instead of the front. When it comes to boarding time, we were all directing out but not indicating which door is closer to our seat. An agent needs to coach passengers outside or even when announcing boarding time -- indicate what seats should go towards the back versus the front door."

Pros: "the crew were awesome, the food okay, it's the first time I've been able to say exellent to flying with air new Zealand today, the past trips have been stinkers, there crew really bad, they put us off flying with my own country's airline so sad, the first leg was cancelled because the flight got in late, with no txt or any warning before we got to the gate, so maybe we will just try them again, because this last trip from Christchurch has eased some of the past pain"
Cons: "The baggage handlers destoyed my case, there the same the world over because of the furious pace, they don't care for your posesions weather there precious or not, this is the real sad point when ones flying a lot,"
