Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."
Pros: "The crew was great. The seats were good but not as spacious as some other business class airline seats."
Cons: "The TV screen interferes with the tray table and could knock off food from the table."
Cons: "It ran a bit late"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"
Pros: "Everything was really smooth in terms of transitions."
Cons: "I didn’t like how people had different packages and I hadn’t realized that I didn’t have the food package."
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: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My ticket did not say that it was a no luggage,no meal ticket & I printed off the E ticket & no where on the E ticket did it state no luggage.....I think that needs to be shown clearly when we book. I had to pay for 1 bag & it would have been $250 but ANZ did work with me &changed the ticket for $125 name-Marjorie Kalama"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the older Japanese attendant’s attitude in helping everyone onboard. A family sitting 2 seats in front moved around a lot while putting their baby and toddler to sleep for the night flight. The attendant discreetly gave those of us earplugs and eye masks to help us shut out the noise. Also, her smile and pleasant attitude made it an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I had to pay extra to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Awful service, they put me waiting for more than an hour to say that I was in the overbook list so they would need to include me in a flight 3 hours later in another airline. Outrageous!"
Pros: "Awesome in flight entertainment! Very corteous and polite crew!"
Cons: "Im midsized asian, i the seats are too small"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment Good ground staff at Auckland check in Hospitable cabin crew Food was palatable"
Cons: "Although I had mistakenly arrived many hours early for my flight and traveled with the airline back and forth across the Pacific, ANZ personnel would not admit me to their lounge to wait in relative comfort."
Pros: "Comfy front row seat on Q300, quick trip"
Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"
Pros: "Quick, efficient, friendly service"
Cons: "For some unknown reason, I can not lower my seat when I wanted to get some sleep. As the air plane took off at 11:55pm, I was really sleep. After 10 minutes of maneuver, I decided to ask a flight attendant to help me figure out what happened to my seat. I pressed the button asking for attendant and waited for 5 minutes, no response. So I pressed the button again. IT showed that I had already pressed the button. So I kept waiting. But then no one ever came for me the 9 hours until it was time for the meal before getting off. Sitting straight sleeping was a really terrible experience!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Drinks were excellent including tea!"
Cons: "Breakfast could be better. My son didn't get his choice on one flight and there was not much he would eat in choices. Make it more general so even teenagers/kids can enjoy. Crew could be nicer, especially in Premier Economy when we pay so much money!"
Pros: "Very professional; enjoyed entertainment options"
Cons: "I was issued a ticket with a window seat as I had requested. However, when I boarded and sat in the seat I was assigned, I was moved because it turned out that the couple that was sitting next to me had purchased the seat so they could lay down. I was seated at another window seat, but it turned out the couple in that row had paid extra to have that seat empty as well. I was not only re-seated before the plane took off, but then I was re-seated THREE more times until finally being put in a middle seat after the flight was in flight. To top it all off, the plane was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to my final destination."
Pros: "Short, friendly people and was on time. Awesome all around"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Good entertainment system but it needs servicing. The USB port was blocked and we couldn't use seat chat or screen share.. Not good for a long flight."
Cons: "The seats were unbelievably tight for a flight of this duration. I'm small. We purchased the economy plus seats hoping that there would be a bit more room. There wasn't, so it was a waste of $100 each way for the two of us. We had much more leg room on our US domestic flight. Flight attendants don't appear to like their jobs very much. They were overly stern and impatient with passengers. Reminded me of the nuns in Catholic school growing up. Do they have any idea how uncomfortable the passengers are when we are packed in like sardines? Finally, the food isn't anything like they described and they served diet portions it seemed. I'm at a loss for why this airline was rated so highly"
Pros: "Seats, service"
Cons: "Wait and confusion. I n auckland"
Pros: "Seats were good. Lots of movies to watch. Good headphones. Food was not bad. They had chocolate ice cream for desert! Crew was nice. I would fly again."
Cons: "Free Wi-fi would be cool."
Pros: "Good house of entertainment and food was good for a short flight!"
Cons: "Nothing that stood out overall a good flight but I've had better."
Pros: "good movie selection"
Cons: "we were o board @ 7pm & the captain & his crew arrived @ 7pm which made the flight arrive late & stressful for many transferring passengers"
Pros: "A good amount of legroom (in economy!) and really pleasant staff."
Cons: "Paying $233 for an extra bag was ridiculous."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, but not as attentive as the men we had from LA to Auckland. This exit row seat was near 5 bathrooms so not as good a seat as LA to Auckland."
Cons: "No vegetarian meal, lot of turbulance"
Pros: "The beef dinner was exceptional, like dining out but in a small space ."
Cons: "Like all economy flights, it was a little cramped."
Cons: "Seat assignment wasn't registered in the system and even though we bought the ticket together we couldn't get seats together - had to pay for premium seats. That's the first time ever I don't get assigned a seat with my travel companion. #MAJORFAIL"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight with NZ with a 9 hour layover in Auckland. Going to Auckland carry on allowance 10Kg in agreement with website. From Auckland to Melbourne carry on weight limit 7 Kg. WHAT A HORRIBLE WAY TO TREAT YOUR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS WHO FLY MULTIPLE LEGS WITH NZ."
Pros: "Ive flown domestically countless times and I love flying but when coming home from vacation in NZ I was all about Air New Zealand! This was my first long haul flight so I have nothing to compare to. The staff was wonderful, the flight was uneventful allowing me to enjoy my in flight entertainment, which was varied enough to keep me entertained. Staff was responsive during my flight to and from and seats were reasonably comfortable. Seats were prepped with blanket pillow and headphones. I loved the seat to seat messaging. Food was forgettable. Mostly I snacked on protein bars so I didnt eat much but there was ice cream at one point!"
Pros: "Checkin was easy and fast. The lounge in Auckland was comfortable and well supplied."
Pros: "The Entertainment was amazing, I really enjoyed watching movies."
Cons: "The crew asking for a tip when asked a question- I think that is rude"
Pros: "Air NZ flight very pleasant. Staff extremely accommodating and friendly. Meals quite good and wine much appreciated."
Cons: "Seats on our return trip much less comfortable than when we flew to NZ."
Pros: "Hot coffee"
Cons: "Brisk, cold air blew on us all night. Repeatedly asked if the crew could turn up the heat. Put on sweater, light jacket and muffler."
Cons: "Food was poor"
Pros: "I love Air NZ, near new 777, spacious, noise wasn't bad, excellent staff. Decent food choices for dinner, breakfast was merely OK. Infotainment was top notch on the new Boeing, but lots of unique Air NZ content too. All my 4 domestic flights on A320s the previous week with Air NZ were top notch too."
Cons: "No way to pay to get in to the lounge for a day pass if you dont have airline status. I got accustomed to having it traveling with a coworker with access, but flying solo, in Auckland, no status, no access, would have gladly paid for the privilege."
Pros: "Your flight attendants provide first-class service even in economy."
Cons: "Bathrooms could have been cleaner"
Cons: "Two delays after boarding extended the 13 hour flight to 14.5 hours. That is excruciating in a seat."
Pros: "Excellent crew service. Food pretty good also"
Pros: "The crew, entertainment"
Cons: "The padding on the seats could be a bit more comfortable in economy, especially on 10 to 16 hour flights."
Pros: "ON time!! As comfortable a long haul can be."
Pros: "We flew to Auckland 2 weeks ago and the food was poor, there was no waiting area to sit down-locked until 15" before boarding; seats not great, etc. But our return flight was superb. Very comfortable seats, clean and stocked bathrooms, very tasty food, great movie selection, great drink selection, great crew. Thank you NZAir."
Cons: "If you use you own earphones, the volume of the pilot announcements comes through very loud. The earphones provided by air nz are much better, so will always opt to use thiers."
Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown with"
Pros: "on time, plenty of movie options"
Cons: "Economy on Air New Zealand is better than the USA carriers, but still nothing to write home about."
Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "plane was late. not your fault"
