Cons: "I didn't have a seat for good 2 hours from the time I boarded & was hoping that I might have been compensated in some way"

Pros: "Not much - everything was below average Q Meal worked - the miso salmon was good. shape the breakfast was almost unedible - uncooked bacon, gooey egg stuck to side of container - mushy potato cake soaked by the fluid from the tomato - you would think they would get it right after 20 years!"
Cons: "broken tables and damaged seats ( electrical cords lose) they give you a menu and have no pre-dinner drink service don't ask for a drink after meals have been served - you won't get it too much service to ask for snacks after six hours - the staff eat them and give you their vegetarian sandwiches, then other crew try to say no that's not true - one of them is lying seats are tight - especially if you are 188cm tall. they throw all the cooked mid flight snacks out after three hours of being in the oven yet they don't walk up and down the isle and offer them to you. Yeah right - 23 staff eat them themselves. same movies and TV - I do a flight every month and its always the same with maybe one or two new movies added unloading oversize in LAX - give yourself at least 1.5 hours - they are slow and inefficient. Unloading in Melbourne was ok but bags took for ever. Wish they would go to Beijing or Shanghai and see how it is done in less than 15 minutes from docking. United/Delta is looking good at this stage"

Pros: "Everything was fine. I have flown with Qantas many times, and it was same as usual"
Cons: "I had no problems"

Pros: "I love Qantas and mostly fly the airline. Love the 380 airbus for long hauls."
Cons: "On this flight the attendants were very un-organised to a point of almost tripping over themselves. meal delivery over an hour apart The standard of meals seems to have dropped by a star. Not wanting to post a gloomy picture as the staff area nearly always friendly and great. These guys were also. Perhaps they were tired."

Pros: "Arriving back in Australia"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late because there was a passenger on board sick they should never of been allowed to board the plane. This was very badly managed by the staff on the ground staff. Very poor leg room the rude passenger in the seats in front of us reclined right from take off to landing wa very hard to get out of our seat to stretch or go to the bathroom"

Cons: "Five hour delay due to faulty maintenance at LAX. Pilot (rightly) refused to fly until maintenance work correctly completed. Plane then diverted to Brisbane to change crew, en route to Melbourne."

Pros: "The seats are great in 380 compared to 777 - I'm 187cm and I can stretch out Food seems to be improving - breakfast wasn't soggy!"
Cons: "Crew service is slack as usual, and hasn't improved much - you have to ask for everything - breakfast they forgot the coffee - had to ask, second drink before evening meal - forget it they are just too busy - all 23 of them! On Cathay or Singapore or even United - they help as much as they can."

He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor.

Pros: "Service was Great, Food was good."
Cons: "Coke zero was not complimentary"

Pros: "The attendants seem very happy to be where they were. Very friendly and helpful, everyone seemed in a great mood and happy to be with us. the only bad thing was they ran out of salmon before they got to us."

Pros: "Very solid experience and comfortable"

Pros: "I was able to pick a seat with no one next to me and gathered 2 blankets and 4 pillows and sleep pretty well. I also appreciated boarding back to front and departing on time! Woo! TV Screens were new and updated which was also nice."
Cons: "The movie selection was a lot of sad and intense dramas. A few more comedy's and light hearted films would have been preferable."

Pros: "They board back to front which saves a lot of hassle with overhead bags and such and keeps things moving. I appreciated that all the flight attendants spoke French and English and were very helpful when I needed anything. My flights to and from Tahiti were both smooth sailing. My flight back was a red eye and was quiet so I was able to sleep most of the way."
Cons: "Whoa. That food was TERRIBLE. I'm usually lenient with free airplane food but wow, I don't even know what some of it was. I my second meal looked like fish and turned out to be pork (I think?). They also only came around with the beverage cart once in the 8 hour flight (just before our first meal); I had to ring my call button to get water. The plane was pretty dated as well. I've seen worse but the screens were dated and all of the movies were fairly depressing. First, I'd suggest a couple more comedy's or rom-coms. Even a couple extra family friendly cartoons would be preferable to all the war/drama/dark options. Second, I'd suggest having the movies on demand rather than play one after another where passengers have to scroll through channels and keep catching movies part way through. A simple solution would be to have WiFi and streaming on flights which was also not available. This should be expected with international flight and would allow for on demand movies and music rather than the dated system currently in place."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Location of terminal."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and food was good. The leg space was decent also, always an important factor for tall people on long flights"
Cons: "The boardin required a long walk to a remote terminal and then quit a long drive to the plane"

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Seats very thin with little to no cushioning. Seats way too close so that when a seat reclines in front, you wind up almost chewing on the seat in front. My seat was broken and did not recline. Should receive some compensation for this"

Pros: "Easy boarding in Bora Bora, & speedy arrival in Moorea"
Cons: "High cost to make any changes to a reservation"

Pros: "Nice crew. I liked the packers of socks, earbids and mask."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable airline, good food, friendly service. I would take it again."
Cons: "I don't know if this is representative but we were late both ways (2 hrs and 1 hr). Differently from other airline I've used to do this trip they don't go and offer water during the flight. You can go to get some drinks yourself of course but this is not always easy when your neighbor is sleeping."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "We waited in a shuttle for 30 minutes to be transported to the plane. We then had a three hour delay on the tarmac. Were not once offered water or refreshments during the 3-hour delay, and were only given two brief updates. During the 8 hour flight, refreshments were offered only twice. The food was ok - not terrible, not great. By the time they got to us (row 27), they didn’t have both meal options available. We took what we could get. And, all this after paying $1500 per person for our economy seats. I can fly LAX to Bali for 1/3 the price."

Pros: "great options for entertainment."
Cons: "The plane food was horrible."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable for an eight hour flight. We slept most of it attendants were courteous and professional"
Cons: "I didn’t like the orange marmalade breakfast. We don’t eat pork ham was on the omelet"

Cons: "The flight was delayed, the food wasn't good at all, because I was traveling with a cast on my left foot I asked for a front seat a week before my flight and when I asked at the counter at the airport they say that they wouldn't be able to give me a front seat, the lady at the counter wasn't nice at all, she didn't help and it felt that she wasn't trying to help me or to manege any other solution."

Pros: "Very kind and helping crew ! Love they positive attitude and energy"

Pros: "This was a wonderful flying experience for me. I was happy with the selection of entertainment, the seats were comfortable, and the crew was friendly. I also enjoyed the food!"
Cons: "We spent a long time on the tarmac at LAX. The explanation was that they were making sure everyone's bags got on board...which I felt was very odd. We left late, and arrived in Pape'ete 45 minutes late. Otherwise, the experience was excellent."

Pros: "Food and service were beter than expected"
Cons: "To little space between Seats in economy or maybe I'm to tall"

Cons: "Air Tahiti Nui does not have online seat assignment. You have to call to get a seat assignment. total waste of time. Secondly there is no way to check arrival info online in Tahiti. You have to call the airport."

Pros: "More space"

Pros: "Everything in our business class seats were wonderful. Loved to be able to elevate my legs. Watched movies, ate wonderful food creatively designed. Staff went above and beyond.No crying babies!"
Cons: "The beds did not lay flat to sleep, making it hard to sleep on your sides. Please convert them to lie totally flat like Singapore air or British airways. The champagne was a bit bitter. The only champagne I've ever liked was on Singapore airs business class to frankfurt, germany."

Pros: "My wife and I have planned a trip to Bora-Bora since we got married in the 80s. I had said that I would not make that long trip without a first class ticket and followed through with this our recent trip. Although the ticket was quite expensive, it was worth every penny. Air Tahiti Nui really understands what "First Class" should be like -they pamper you! They deliver course after course of amazingly good quality food and more drinks than you can possibly consume. All of the flight attendants were sincerely interested in making sure we were all happy...a wonderful experience! darn worth the investment! highly recommended! And remember, this is just the lead-up to arriving in Tahiti; things will only get better when you disembark."
Cons: "There were NO disappointments"

Pros: "My bag was destroyed, and I was told I had to check my back pack in which was BS n was charged $100 to check it in... getting in contact with customer service about the issue is impossible. The crews customer service was satisfactory, you can tell they don't want to be there. I will never fly them again."

Pros: "Service was so perfect especially on board,staff are friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "When we get to Fiji entrance was so hot ,no air conditioner staff are so slow and only one staff serve ,people has to wait for long time ,don’t mind waiting but was so hot to wait for long especially with kids"

Pros: "Boarding was chaotic. No microphone, so couldn’t hear rows being called. Passengers were pushing to get onboard. No numbers, rows, etc being used. Nice airport."
Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "Great food and service"
Cons: "Should have completely flat beds"

Cons: "Too cold- The air con was pumping too high everyone was freezing"

Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very nice and liguids were given frequently."
Cons: "The seating needs more room for legs"

Pros: "The movie choices"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane... Even with jackets and blankets on!"

Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "Good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "After many hours the seats were not too uncomfortable. But that's after 10 hours flying. It was nice that they reclined like they did. But the padding could have been better."

Cons: "When I landed in LA after my trip I was sad to find that my suitcase was broken into and item bought were taken."

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?"

Cons: "The food was okay. For a long flight I was expecting more options."

Pros: "Perfect trip. Accommodated my low sodium diet. Professional, efficient and friendly."

Pros: "Getting seats as a stand by passenger."
Cons: "Connecting in LAX with waiting 20 minutes at the remote gate for the bus, the bus ride and waiting for luggage to clear customs is virtually impossible to go though and make the connection. Having literary run out of customs and being told you missed your boarding time and now you are on stand by is not happy making. American points to a Fiji airlines, Fiji airlines at American as the carrier."

Pros: "I like the entertainment options"
Cons: "Crew not careful during food/beverage service. Received a 2nd degree burn from tea accident due to getting spilled on"

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "Who sells Business tickets to parents with 18 month old children? Paid extra to arrive in Fiji rested and relaxed. No surprises h thing. Kid screamed off and on the entire trip. Row right behind us. Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Seats are flat but not horizontal."

Pros: "Pleasantly surprised plenty of legroom and the service was great. Good value and would definitely fly with them again"

Cons: "I was not given a meal for dinner. When I asked they sheepishly looked away from me and told me that there would be a voucher when we landed. We did not get any voucher,nor did they make an announcement that they ran out of food and would not be able to feed half of the plane. I am extremely disappointed in how this was handled, as people next to me were given first class meals and I was given one piece of cheese and one cracker. In the morning for breakfast my meal almost didn't come, I had to ask for it. And when it was given to me it was already opened and messed with."

Pros: "Free food free booze and free movies music and tv!"
Cons: "The food was only subpar, sloppy eggs and wet chicken but everything else was fine."

Pros: "Liked how seats reclined more than usual and head rest curved. Good thing blankets were provided because it was freezing cold. Pillow was great for lower back."
Cons: "Need to have special ENCLOSED seats for young children and their parents! It was a horrible night hearing a 2 year scream the entire night! The food smelled so bad coming down the aisle, it was nauseating."

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food was average. Seats don't lay totally flat"

Pros: "I'd seen some poor reviews but found the flight to be just fine. Decent economy seats for such a long flight, good service, food, and entertainment options."

Pros: "2/4/2 across seating and electrical plug at every seat. So a couple can get one row and one aisle seat. Decent Wine included with meal."
