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,"

Cons: "The space between seats is exceptionally small. It was cramped without even enough room to bend over and pick something up off the floor."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Very friendly crew."
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."
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: "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: "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."
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: "It was okay the plan was a bit small and uncomfortable for an international flight.."

Pros: "leather sets in buisness class were wide and clean"
Cons: "food was fair and spicy."
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "It was crazy cold on the plane. I'm a frequent flyer and never in my life had I been this cold. I had a sweater, a scarf and a blanket, but couldn't relax to sleep as I was shivering the whole time. My friend traveling with me and the people in our row were feeling the same way. Plus they make you remove your blanket for take off and landing, which I've never had to do with other companies. It went from shivering to teeth chattering. I couldn't understand why they served us a hot meal when we got on the plane. Anyone boarding at 11:30 pm should have already eaten, at that point you just want to sleep, not wait another two hours for food to be served and the trays cleaned up."
Pros: "Service food were good"
Cons: "Plane broke down upon arrival. New plane. Had to be flown in from Fiji. Caused a full day delay in return travel."
