Pros: "The new plane was amazing on my way back from Singapore to Chicago. The staff is extremely courteous. The food was good which included some traditional Korean food options and some western cuisine."
Cons: "On my way from Chicago to Singapore, they had an old plane and the business class was mediocre at best. The seats were uncomfortable. They were stacked side by side and did not have a "personal pod" formation which in my honest opinion is quite a waste of thousands of dollars you paid to travel. Additionally, the entertainment was just okay. There were not too many great options of movies and for the old plane, the screens were really bad."

Pros: "The food choices, included Korean dishes. The disposal slippers are great when taking shoes off. The air hostesses were friendly and helpful. Good leg room"
Cons: "There was no priority boarding for family with young children, and the boarding sequence was not accordingly to rows, so the boarding process was a bit disorganized. Not enough snacks. Soda was poured out in cups rather than giving the passengers the whole can of soda. Movie selections were not that great, many good current movies were not available. Was disappointed that it was the same set of movie choices as the previous flight. The toilets really needed attention, it was quite dirty and it smelled. Seat does not have enough lower back support, was literally having to sit on my pillow and blanket due to lower back pain. The temperature was not cool enough and it felt warm."

I had fallen during my vacation and really wanted to upgrade so I can stretch out to not put a lot of pressure on my low back and hip for a 12+ hour flight, and didn't get the chance. Was pretty upset when I walked around and noticed many open seats in both business class and first class. (first class curtain was opened for a short period of time)"

Thank You !!"

Pros: "The food and the crew were great."
Cons: "I am yet to find an airline that has any semblance of comfort in economy class for someone 6’ 2”, and that isn’t even tall! It would seem that the seats should be tall enough not to have the headrest push on my shoulders.....such as making it adjustable enough to be used as a headrest."

Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"

Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."

They lost my bags. In Hong kong, I was told the designated smoking area in the terminal was close and the steward encouraged me to go...I almost missed the flight even though I didn't even make it to where she directed me. It was not close, she was a liar. They lost my bags. They kept calling me sir despite my corrections and obvious female anatomy. They had no remorse or apologies for their errors"

Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Cons: "There should always be a vegetarian option on the set menu. I didn't realise I would need to pre order my meal for this."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic"

Pros: "Was a way home. Bathroom clean"
Cons: "Food was terrible. I’ve flown with Eva many times but the food is worse than ever. If your Chinese you can put seat back in meal service but if not Chinese must obey rules. The entertainment has very little to offer for such a long flight. So board. The seat is very uncomfortable and deflated seat is painful to my back. Flight overbooked in economy and many seats available elsewhere, they should offer for a little more money but leave empty while everyone is crammed like sardines"

Cons: "Nothing I don’t like"

Pros: "My roundtrip flight from Chicago to Bangkok was excellent for many reasons. First, my flight from Cleveland was delayed, and the EVA crew was quick to communicate with me and be sure to get me to the gate so I didn't miss the flight. The staff were all very kind, helpful, competent, professional. The airplane was very clean, very efficient, good meals, good entertainment. Excellent airline. I'll be flying with them regularly!"

Pros: "Great crew, impressive washrooms, food was wholesome and warm"
Cons: "My friend had a long wait in line to get her boarding pass. She was denied at the counter to fly due to there being 40 minutes until her board time. She was not checking bags, and the security line was a walk through. But they would not issue her a ticket, cancelled her international flight, AND her return flight. She had to buy an entire new round trip international flight...All the while her plane was still on the ground...This did not make sense to me. This does not make sense to anyone I explain the story to, either. Your counters truly are always long waits. It was her fault she didn't leave enough time. But the lack of flexibility in rebooking and the inability to still use her return flight home? WHY."

Pros: "Everything about my flights.."
Cons: "None.. they were very acoomodating of my request esp my seats"

Pros: "I liked that the Airline was very accommodating in arranging an alternate flight for me, after they caused me to miss my Connecting flight in Taipei, due to the delay in Hong Kong. I didn't mind being redirected through Seattle first, and then on to Chicago, but. . . . ."
Cons: "The 1hr, 40 minute delay in Hong Kong ended up costing me 11 hours of additional travel time to reach my final destination. The Airline arranged for the last leg of my flight to Chicago from Seattle to be on a different Airline, and it wasn't so comfortable. Arrangements were made by the airline in Taipei for my flight out of Chicago for me also, but with a 4 hours layover and on a "Standby" condition. This I didn't understand because there was a much earlier flight leaving Chicago on this same airline and it wasn't full. Staff at the ticket counter did eventually correct it to the earlier flight for me."

Pros: "Thick blanket, toothbrush & toothpaste, eyes cover for sleeping, on time boarding, excellent overall"

Pros: "food is good"
Cons: "night hour flight"

Pros: "Comfortable flight. Crew were friendly and attentitive."
Cons: "English speaking movie content was sub par."

Pros: "everything done well and professionally"

Pros: "Crew were attentive.though tone of voice is not friendly the one doing announcement lady"
Cons: "Food is good though not as good before. Porridge was good though!"

Pros: "Love this airline! Their efficiency is amazing and the customer service was just as great!"

Pros: "I love the price, all staff was kind and helpful and the seats are comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like the food. Most of it made my stomach upset so I didn't finish and landed very hungry. The entertainment was limited as well. For a 13+ hour flight I was disappointed with the amount of TV shows and movies I had access to. I would still recommend EVA to friends and family with a warning to bring approved food and entertainment."

Pros: "great service!"

Cons: "The food was not as good and they could have offered more drink/water service."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Godd leg room. Nice staffs. People sre friendly. Clean bathrooms all througout the flight. Impressive airline"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Services were excellent. My daughter spilled her drinks on me, and I didn't have any change of clothes, asked for help and get pants from the crew to change."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "When we were stranded in Manila due to a Lightning Storm and they closed the runway, EVA Air eventually gave every passenger waiting a bottle of water and snack buns! It was great! Also appreciated that they held the flight in Taipei so we could make our connection:"
Cons: "Very tight seats, mounted closer to wall so you couldn't really lean over and rest. Strange food listed as Western. Not food I had ever combined together....."

Pros: "Flight attendants very nice."
Cons: "Old movies. Need more drink service on 14 hour flight."

Pros: "Overall good flight. You get what you pay for. Staff was wonderful."
Cons: "In flight entertainment could have been a bit better, but other than that it was a good flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Sitting for 15 hrs"

Pros: "Crew attention to detail, comfort, food, overall experience, clean restrooms"

Pros: "Staff was courteous and attentive especially to the older passengers"
Cons: "Nothing speaks volumes than an on time flight. While there was ample time for in between flight changes for leisure and rest, a delayed flight affects passenger demeanor and satisfaction the most."

Pros: "Very polite staff. Nice airplanes and great food. Excellent value for overseas flight from Chicago to Hong Kong. Connecting flight was easy and they did a great job getting my luggage transferred"

Pros: "The crew was excellent and we appreciated the ability to change seats after takeoff."

Pros: "You get what you pay for. Can't complain."

Pros: "We did not fly on this flight."
Cons: "We did not fly on this flight."

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: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."

Pros: "Entertainment and board WiFi excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise, at least 200 m walking in the light rain, no previous warning."

Cons: "I was turned away at the gate and was unable to board the plane. It was an awful experience!"

Cons: "Very nice services"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful, very hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "The seating in economy class is abysmal. The seats are extremely small and the rows are to close together. There is no leg room. The seat cushioning is almost nonexistent. It's like sitting and leaning back on a board. On this last trip I had a window seat. I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs."

Cons: "One traveler was hit by car and injured prior to the trip. Could not get a refund from the airline."

Pros: "Crew was okay. Nothing special but not bad."
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work! Don’t advertise it if it is not working. Even setting it up is far too much work/confusing."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Not being scammed on bag charges."

Pros: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."
Cons: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."

Cons: "Preferred seats in economy class are very uncomfortable if your row is full. Long, miserable flight."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. They were incredibly polite and accommodating. This was my first time flying for more than three hours (15 hours from Houston to Auckland) and it really could not have gone much better."
Cons: "Always need a little more legroom in economy but it's a small sacrifice for getting an affordable flight."

Pros: "slightly more roomy than most carriers"
Cons: "since it was a Friday during Lent, there could have been non-meat options on the meals. One lunch and one supper offered only chicken and beef both times."

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."

Cons: "Auckland to Chicago was fine. Chicago to Minnesota was horrible. The departure plane showed up late due to weather which is understandable. Once the plane showed up we waited for over 4 hours for a pilots to show up. Our flight could have bee managed much better, poor job by United!"

Pros: "Quick and easy"

Pros: "The flight was delayed for two hours but they kept announcing the delay as though we were about to begin boarding and reason they gave for the delay was hard to believe."
Cons: "Communication"

Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"

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: "Air New Zealand was great, plane comfortable and the crew very nice"
Cons: "$120 to check my 12kg bag! I was outraged! Was sold a ticket that included nothing but a seat and virgin and air new Zealand were not helpful. Kayak should have been more transparent about this exhorbitant fee! I plan to raise a stink when I get back to the states. Was shocked and had no other choose but to pay!"

Pros: "The flight was good. The plane is very nice. The in-flight entertainment was good, but you have to pay for most shows/movies. The flight attendants were very nice. The landing was a bit rough. The plane kind of swayed/slide down the runway. But it was raining so it was understandable."
Cons: "Snacks aren't free. They ran out of food before they got to the back section of the plane. Most of the in-flight entertainment is not free."

Pros: "Service, food, chairs, entertainment"
Cons: "3 hour delay created major issues for an international flight."

Pros: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."

Cons: "No air vents"

Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Allowed us to change seats within our section for more comfort. Good food. Loves the USB outlet at our seats."
Cons: "Seats near bathroom were very noisy"

Pros: "Really great service from the flight crews - smiley, polite and we were served drinks twice from a 2.5 hrs flight. Entertainment program was great with better leg space. Overall it was a pleasant experience! Thanks"
Cons: "No free movies"

Pros: "there were extra blankets."
Cons: "Cold air blasting for 8 hours."

Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."

Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."

Pros: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"

Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"

Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."

Pros: "As has been my prior experience with Air New Zealand, I found the trip to be virtually flawless. The boarding process was smooth and efficient, the crew was great and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job, the food was good, and I had lots of choices on the IFE system. For flying cattle class on a 15 hour flight, I arrived reasonably rested and content."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the extra $60 I had to pay in order to get a window seat got me just that. There was no additional room either length- or width-wise and no other advantages other than the window. I would not pay for that "privilege" again and I'm sorry to see that ANZ has stooped to the level of its American counterparts."

Cons: "I was not able to pay for excess luggage online because I was told that I had to do it 48 hours in advance. I did not know I need and extra bag until the day before i left. So instead of paying the 1 dollar promotional fee advertised online i have to pay 191 dollars at the airport. That is ridiclous."

Pros: "Everything, felt safe"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Purchased an exit row aisle seat - all the leg room I could ask for. Close to toilets - no odor issues. Good meals. Staff basically courteous (though not unfailingly - occasionally a tad blunt and titchy - a common experience for me on Air NZ)."
Cons: "Air NZ website states exit row seating purchase comes with priority boarding. When I asked about this at the gate counter I was told I would be seated by row number. Seems like this is a common issue with Air NZ - see e.g., skytrax website reviews. The website advertising is inaccurate if not false."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "These guys are the best!"
Cons: "Flight was too short"

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."

Pros: "Friendly staff Smooth boarding process Great entertainment system"
Cons: "temperature regulation on the plane was quite poor. Parts of the cabin were very warm and others were very cold and flight attendants had difficulty regulating the temperature. food was also quite bland."

Cons: "I did not fly from Brisbane to Auckland"

Pros: "Everything was on time, comfortable & smooth, online checkin was clear & easy. Helpful, responsive staff at every level. A million times better than my other travel leg with United (but that's nothe saying much...)"

Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "You had to pay for 3/4ths of the movies and shows. Kayak didn't specify whether I had a checked bag or not so when I got to the airport I had to fork over $120! I had no choice because I'm not going to leave my luggage behind. I was not pleased with this third party booking."

Pros: "Slightly better seats & slightly more leg room than other airlines. Crew was pleasant and efficient despite 12+ hour flight with turbulence."
Cons: "Too close to "neighbors" ie seats too close together--it is hard to eat without poking or being poked by the person on either side...even when seats are in upright position."

Pros: "We think Air New Zealand is by far the best airline we've ever flown on. Service, food, entertainment were all superlative"
