Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "Service and food choices. Seating and the mattress for bed."
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew made us laugh and our flight flew by. Great entertainment options and the food service was delicious."
Pros: "Everything. A modern comfortable plane. It's embarrassing for airlines from America because they pale in comparison. I would gladly pay $100 more and fly in style IN COACH! Can't wait for the return flight."
Cons: "I am vegetarian so should request veg option meals"
Pros: "The food was GREAT! The flight crew was social, nice and I felt apart of the family. The seats were comfy. I brought my own movies on my iPad but I used their free movies instead."
Cons: "Nothing negative"
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Great food (most airlines do not serve any), great entertainment system, & cleanliness is superb."
Cons: "Cabin was too cold. I had to wear a jacket most of the flight."
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The captain was late to the airport so our flight was delayed"
Cons: "Bulkhead seating terrible for long haul flight"
Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."
Pros: "everythign aboht the trip was great"
Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "I was recovering from a cold and didn't anticipate having ear problems but during decent I began to experience some pain. It was all new to me as I had never been through this before. Fortunately the crew was kind and they provided a sinus decongestant in a cup for me to sniff and breath in so the smell could open up my nasal passages and it helped a bit."
Cons: "The sharp decent while arriving."
Pros: "I like SkyCouch."
Pros: "Everything comfy spacious seats row 8"
Pros: "Everything FA even got our bags out while taxiing into gate"
Pros: "Everything was quite nice."
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Long distance from arrival gate to departure gate"
Pros: "The fly was on time"
Cons: "The service very poor"
Pros: "Crew were very human unlike in the industry. Seat next to me was empty, I requested to change the seat Ms. Aimee the crew let me after safe cruising. Best part is, the seat was sky couch or premium economy and she let me use it. If it would be other airlines they would mindlessly refuse it. High level of courteousy and sense of exellent service displayed. All airlines should learn"
Cons: "Food could get better."
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: "Excellent service, seats, big screen, etc ✅"
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was superb. The staff was very nice, the seating area was spacious and relaxing and the lights inside were super fun! Everything ran on time and the food was actually quite good."
Cons: "My dead would not recline, but I would not find any fault with my flight even with that."
Pros: "Comfortable, Clean & Friendly Service. Loved the fun saftey video. Best flight I've been on by far."
Pros: "The service was very good, food good, seats comfortable. The sears on the way to my destination seemed roomier than on way home, maybe a different type of plane?"
Cons: "This was my first long flight 12+ hrs. And I wish I would have gotten the economy couch option. Sitting upright that long is difficult."
Pros: "Flight had gluten free meals. Crew was professional"
Cons: "45 minutes late so missed connecting flight. While anz booked me on the next flight, international flights shouldn't be that late"
Pros: "Loved the crew, and entertainment options"
Cons: "Very little space in the aisle and between seats"
Cons: "Tv didn't work to Australia so they moved us to the back row and tv quit working again on the return flight. The flight attendant wasn't helpful and I would rather fly with Jetstar this flight was below budget airlines"
Pros: "These guys are the best!"
Cons: "Flight was too short"
Pros: "We flew premium economy. The staff was wonderful great first experience! I really wish the other three crews could have kept this momentum going as my other flights with ANZ were less than thrilling! The flight attendant staff was phenomenal on my iah to akl leg. My crew on the akl to iah leg. Brandon gave the initial intro and seemed to follow the original crews standards. Unfortunately, we had an older flight attendant who seemed less than thrilled to be with us this flight."
Cons: "I wish I could give a true rating of ANZ as their crews apparently don't follow any protocol for providing the same exceptional service received on my maiden flight with them."
Pros: "Watching movies made flt not being go by faster"
Cons: "Not being able to just order a beer....yes, I did on screen but still was not able to buy cuz said service was closed. This after flt attendant told me to use screen to order n pay. She eventually just gave it to me after trying to do it herself unsuccessfully."
Pros: "I had read quite a bit of negatively but although I have had better service and more comfort it was better than I had herd it would be. The in seat entertainment system was better than any I had experienced."
Cons: "For the most part the crew was very nice. But the attendant we had lacked some professionalism and seemed very tired. We didn't always get what we asked for as well with no explanation why."
Cons: "Fixed arm rests in the bassinet row. We had extra seats which was a lovely surprise but it was not much help as the arm rests don't move. Won't pay for that row again as my bub was just a bit too heavy for the bassinet."
Pros: "Nothing in particular--it was a short flight. I did appreciate that the crew went ahead and turned on the entertainment system even though it was a short transit time (we were on a plane meant for trans-Pacific travel--only reason it was available in the first place)."
Cons: "No complaints here."
Pros: "Not very much"
Cons: "The crew in my area didnt like her job or passengers in general and it was obvious."
Cons: "Nobody believes in offering decent food anymore. Flying was so much better 25 yrs ago. Soon we will have to pay to use the toilet."
Pros: "The food was good, the accommodation, although it been a long flight everything was allright"
Pros: "short flight made seats less inportant"
Cons: "not the seats I selected in October"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful! Lots of leg room, quick and helpful boarding. Loved my first time on Air New Zealand."
Cons: "I should've asked for a vegetarian meal but I didn't think to. I will next time! I'd also love some more NZ movies...Whale rider, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, etc! That'd be great!"
Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."
Cons: "Using a 777 meant longer check in time and was much longer arrival time and baggage collection. Meant I was stuck in Auckland traffic because of the extra time"
Pros: "Significantly more leg room than other competitors! Even with the person's chair reclined in front of me, I was still able to be comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was as good as can be (given that it is airline food), the choices for entertainment were great. Lots of overhead storage!"
Cons: "Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke."
Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Pros: "Very friendly and frequent service while in-flight. It was great having my own monitor built into the seat to watch available movies or tv shows I wanted to for the duration of the flight. Flight attendants would walk the aisles every two hours and offer water to everyone. I had never flown Air New Zealand before, but now it's one of my top airlines."
Cons: "The only complaint would be that there was no in-flight wifi available onboard."
Cons: "We should have been told in Boston that we need visa to Australia, not an hour and a half before the flight"
Pros: "Crew name Sachi was excellent customer service."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and I really value that."
Cons: "After boarding on time, we departed about 51 minutes late because of some baggage inspection issue. For the entire time, there was only one announcement about the delay. This delay ruined my schedule on the arrival."
Cons: "Communication with our delay...NOT TOO GOOD"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Very clean cabin"
Cons: "Wifi wasn’t working"
Pros: "Love HA"
Cons: "First Class Hehe"
Pros: "Free entertainment. Complimentary food"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Airlines has great service and long leg room than the US carrier"
Cons: "The TSA line in Kona is a nightmare, almost missed my flight. Took over an hour. So slow and people dont make any effort doing their job faster."
Pros: "Crew ok"
Pros: "We enjoy flying with hawaiian"
Cons: "Leaving on time and not having to board a different flight because of mechanical issues."
Pros: "Complimentary items"
Cons: "Purchased headphones for a screen that didn’t work."
Pros: "I like biking through kayak. I just wished they could warm u.s but too book a1 way flight to NZ because your wasting money."
Cons: "I booked a 1 day trip not realizing I could only book a round trip tick to get in new Zealand. I almost missed my flight and had to book another 1 way trip.. wasting over $100 dollars. That ruined my flight exp."
Cons: "I wish the airline goes back to serving real meals for breakfasts and dinners on the longer flights like going to the islands & returning to mainland. We were expecting warm decent meals like what they use to serve in the past rather than snack type breakfast and sandwiches & chips for dinner, on coach with extended leg room. This is one of the enticing parts of flying this airline."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is fantastic. Great crew, great service. Nice refreshing juice!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. It was fantastic."
Pros: "Jesse helped me get my seats, very fun and friendly!"
Pros: "Large full plane that had friendly staff and left on time. No sooner had it taken off than it seemed we were prepping to land"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and entertaining! The food was awesome! The teri chicken sandwich was yummy!!"
Cons: "You have to pay to watch movies. I was hoping for a few free movies or television shows."
Pros: "On time,friendly staff."
Cons: "No room,food so so, way charge for entertainment?"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service"
Cons: "No entertainment options on flight except overpriced ipad rental."
Pros: "330-200 had upgraded lay flat first class seating. Very nice"
Pros: "They made frequent announcements when there was turbulence compared to other airlines!"
Cons: "Vegan food would be nice option because even non-vegans can eat it too"
Pros: "Very good flight. They offered food and beverages as well as pillows and blankets. Will definitely recommend in the future."
Pros: "We were able to upgrade our seating to first class which made all the difference in the comfort level of the long flight."
Cons: "The food was okay but could have been better. We had booked a separate flight from Kona to Honolulu and then took another flight from Honolulu to Papeete. The customer service agent in Kona was able to book out baggage straight through to Papeete which saved us the hassle of picking up baggage in Honolulu and checking it in again."
Cons: "It was a red eye flight, the lights were on for most of it the announcements were non stop. there were so many empty seats some upgrade and some just economy blocked of by a curtain. Allow people to move and spread out in these cases it's just rude and greedy to keep these seats empty when everyone is crammed in tight through out the plane."
Pros: "Decent seat with good leg room, friendly crew"
Cons: "Absolutely terrible food...no complimentary entertainment $8 to watch single film or tv show"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was very smooth"
Pros: "options for vegetarians"
Cons: "the food, there was no vegetarian option. The first plane was very small and uncomfortable but the return was good."
Pros: "Excellent seats! Friendly flight attendant and lots of snacks plus a gift bag."
Cons: "A little bumpy"
Pros: "For some reason the plane was swapped to the newer models so some of our group got upgraded to extra comfort since extra is given to rows 11-21 on the new planes. Row 13 was non existent anymore to make room for the lie flats so gave my in laws the extra comfort we had in row 14 and upgraded our flights to business class. Totally worth it and paid just $370 to upgrade since we got credit for the amount we paid for extra comfort ($495 - $125 credit). On a 10 hour flight it made a huge difference since we got to stretch out, nap and enjoy amazing food while being ultra comfy! I would recommend on the longer flights for sure and when you upgrade w/in 24 hours its way cheaper than the $2500+ cost that it normally would be."
Cons: "The iPads they give in Biz class are great for viewing but there was definitely less movie choices than in the main cabin. Probably only a handful of new releases versus what the main cabin had. Made a diff since i didn't want to watch Harry Potter 1-7 and it was a 4 movie long flight! Still not bad but would have loved to see all the same titles on the iPad for us to view."
Pros: "The crew, from pilots to attendants, was extremely professional and pleasant. The airline did an excellent job turning what could've been a nightmare situation to a minor delay. Providing snacks and dinner vouchers while we waited for a new plane was a nice touch. But too many mechanical and/or electrical issues with this airline."
Cons: "Too many mechanical and/or electrical issues. Maintenance not up to par perhaps? Flight was delayed 2.5 hrs due to computer issues on the flight to Hawaii. Then had to suffer through an emergency landing due to hydraulic failure on the flight back to New York. Was not a fun experience watching the fuel being dumped into the ocean for an hour."
Pros: "Crew and food we good luckily was on a flight that wasn't packed with riders"
Cons: "Kiosk system was poor and hard to understand then had to go way down outside to drop of bags then go back to where we were to go to security very confusing needs to be a smoother process also luggage tagging was confusing and a little different than others airlines fortunately someone helped us out"
Pros: "Entertainment available."
Cons: "Seats recline into your lap. Very bad... Flight was way too hot, temperature wise, and no personal Air fans."
Pros: "great movie selection well fed"
Cons: "unfriendly crew to locals but they were very friendly to the japanese passengers. we felt ignored. i called for assistant and didnt get answered for 30mins. when she came to assist she didnt even bother listening to my request and assumed i just wanted sprite. i was nauseated and i wanted sprite n crackers but she only came back with sprite after 10mins. overall in short crew member in this flight needs to have their aloha spirit n be friendly not moody!!!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "My suitcase was sent to wrong airport in Japan"
Cons: "Boarding was the usual slow line of people trying to stuff their bags in the overheads -- not much they can do to improve that I guess. Disembarking seemed to take longer than usual. Didn't open the door right away."
Pros: "Boarding was not announced per zone. Zone 1 and 2 were boarded and then 3-5 all at once creating a huge line. Rated 1 on food and entertainment as short duration of flight didn't include either of those."
Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."
Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"
Pros: "Great service... good meal... and free wine! Yeeeew!"
Pros: "I liked that they serve meal in a short intrastate flights.Service was wonderful."
Cons: "screaming and unruly kids and their parents who think it's cute that they act so totally out of control."
Pros: "Hawaiian airlines is the best airline!"
Pros: "No food and uncomfortable flight"
Cons: "The flight with Jet blue to Los Angelos was so uncomfortable"
Pros: "My kids liked the cup of noodle served on the plane!"
Cons: "We flew on Hawaiian almost 3 weeks before from Asia to Hawaii. We were surprised that most of the movies and tv viewing were exactly the same. I wish you would have had more Korean movies and tv shows. The seats are too close together for any real comfort."
Cons: "No vegetarian meals! Why?? One flight attendant was not friendly (a Japanese national). I know not every one has a good day, but she could have been a little nicer to the passengers. Thank you."
Cons: "3 hour delay meant no train was given a voucher that didn't cover the fare I would have plane leave Hawaii earlier so 300people are left to sleep in the terminal until train runs again"
Pros: "Our area had a small child who had just come off a flight from Australia to Hawaii and was screeching (not screaming). The attendant was able to help the mom with her and was very understanding and patient. Her compassion helped the rest of the passengers deal with the deafening noise."
Cons: "Mediocre food. Overcooked chicken and veggies. The usual."
Pros: "The flight attendents"
Cons: "There should be a vegetarian option for the meal."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean aircraft, on time departure."
Cons: "Entertainment system."
Pros: "A plane I could sleep on...very comfortable!"
Cons: "Enjoyed it very much. Great crew and clean plane!!"
Pros: "The crew had a good attitude for the flight."
Cons: "Felt like this being a 8 hour flight there would be some entertainment on the plane , just radio. Also there was no food options from what I saw available either."
Pros: "Crew looked after us so well."
Cons: "Meals could have been better."
Pros: "Fantastic service from check in until arrival."
Cons: "More up to date movies"
Pros: "the crew was good."
Cons: "hot as hell during check in outside and it took forever. then the entertainment on the plane which was prehistoric with everyone having to watch the same movie, plus it was a very old movie!"
Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "Interior and entertainment system quite outdated. When trying to turn on the reading lights the ones above the seats before us would go on, not ours (21H was our seat, 20H light would turn on, not ours)"
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding in Fiji was hectic, several searches and interruptions in line from staff who had trouble communicating"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "1 hour delay, we landed in middle of night with to sleepy kids. We missed the beautiful tv screens in chair as we had on the way to Fiji and were dissapointed about that, also less leg space in this AirPlane"
Pros: "Very friendly crew..."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable....oh well!"
Cons: "By sending my purchase thru a third party, you screwed my ability to use your cancellation policy and was forced to use there’s which was not customer service oriented. I will never again use kayak"
Pros: "Crew great. Seat was a major let down, too small."
Cons: "Just the seats really."
Pros: "Trip , food etc"
Cons: "Delays on flights"
Cons: "Nice crew. Newer airplane"
Pros: "Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good and unexpected for a 3 hr flight."
Cons: "Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff. Loved the leg from Nandi to Auckland."
Cons: "Having to repack our bags when the total among the three of us flying was within limits. And then still having to pay an extra $60 US. when we didn't get it quite right by about 2 ks. However you did let my wife's wheelchair on without payment thanks for that. I am an ex pilot so it is difficult for your staff to try and explain weight ratios, and the dangers of extra weight.. Then being made to take 1 point something kilos into another lighter bag. However the staff were very good about it. not their fault that they find themselves having to talk through something that just doesn't ad up. However we enjoyed the flight, and the help we received transferring from a very late plane to one almost waiting in Fiji. :-)"
Cons: "planes seats dirty chewing gums stuck on seats talking of entertainment not everyone will prefer to watch what is being played there arw children and elderly thats needs to be considered"
Pros: "well refer below"
Cons: "plane seats were dirty had crumbs on it seats had chewing gum stick on it movie how can u expect everyone to watch same movie there are children wlderly no respect to what they like"
Pros: "Superb customer service It was my first time using Fiji Airways along with my children. We usually fly AirNZ or Emirates because they have everything I need. Now we have added a third airline to our list. My kids are also fussy with the airlines we use. But they really enjoyed their flight with Fiji airways."
Cons: "Food was average and I could not put my seat back slightly."
Cons: "No information around delayed flight. There were 4 delays.."
Pros: "The service and food"
Cons: "Plane seems dated"
Pros: "Food, comfort & on board entertainment not the best but for the price of the flight it was well worth it. The flight crew and those on the ground in Nadi were amazing. Fantastic service all round. Don't forget to use the Premier Lounge in Nadi if you're there for a few hours. FJ$100 for full lounge access. It was an absolute pleasure. Best way to get to the USA from NZ."
Pros: "Fuji was Great"
Pros: "Overall it went quickly."
Cons: "It was little disorganized at the gate, there were several crying babies, and someone was throwing up behind me."
Cons: "IF it weren’t for the freezing cabin temp, I wouldn’t have needed. blanket that smelled like everyone’s feet had been wrapped in it. The breakfast was lukewarm, and some parts were even still cold that should hve been hot."
Pros: "In flight crew did an excellent job as well as the check in at Honolulu international airport except for that one lady with that birth mark on her face. She needs to cheer up more and be less grouchy"
Cons: "A little uncomfortable with seating space and leg room but most airlines share the similar seating space anyways. Food was okay"
Cons: "sitting in a plane at Sydney airport for three hours waiting for a part,for the plane was not much fun.But we still got to Apia that day,or maybe late but before 12 midnight was a very long day."
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."
Pros: "The price was good...initially."
Cons: "My Fiji flights between Honolulu and Auckland were cancelled so they rebooked me on Jetstar and New Zealand Airways Apparently the international date line was not taken into account and I arrived in Sydney hours after my connecting flight to Auckland had already left! I talked to 7 different people in all corners of Sydney airport and no one knew what to do with me. My attempts to call Fiji Airways from my cell phone and then a landline at the airport didn't go through so I ended up messaging a friend in the States and she was able to call and get me booked on a NZ Air flight to Auckland that left the next morning. Both Jetstar and NZ Air gave me different information on what paperwork I needed and what my baggage and carry-on allowance was, which was frustrating. I finally arrived in Auckland 26 hours later than scheduled. I understand the cyclone cancelling the Fiji flights but the rescheduling error caused some significant expenses and a great deal of hassle."
Pros: "Most people who work for the airline are kind."
Cons: "The quality isn’t there... vegetarian meal was the same on both flights and beyond below par. Planes seem to be pretty past there prime in the 4 flights I have been on. Check in process is a nightmare without any automated options that backs everything up. When I arrived in Los Angeles and found that two zippers had been torn from my bag and one pocket open, the baggage staff scoffed at my claim and told me to go speak to a third party that handles baggage claims... I’ll just steer clear next time."
Cons: "We were in the last row on the plane for some reason that was not explained....Parts of plane fell on our heads..Not enough room to lower the tray table...Wedged into seat like sardines...Entertainment was the sounds of toilets flushing...We paid a fortune for first half of flight from LAX to Nadi that was excellent...The second leg of trip to Auckland was a HUGE NIGHTMARE that won't be forgotten....Shirley and Ron Richard"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."
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."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight and had to cancell the whole trip. They’re the only game in town to get to Christmas Island."
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened. At least they could have tried the following day but I guess it was a financial decision and not one made with customer service in mind. I would never fly on them except they’re the only game in town to reach Kiribati."
Pros: "The staff was friendly, food delicious, and cabin not too chilly."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - from the crew, to the plane itself, to the entertainment and blankets and seats -- delightful and easy flight!"
Cons: "There was no leg room. Also, the flight was about 1.5 hrs late departing, which almost caused me to miss my next flight."
Cons: "They lost our luggage and did not compensate us enough to replace what we needed"
Pros: "Except entertainment and comfort i did not like any thing else."
Cons: "Very bad food for those who are strict veterinarian and even don't eat onion, garlic, mushroom because their religion dose not allow. very bad for one who is going to LA and allow only one hand carry even all other airlines allow one hand carry and one computer bag."
Pros: "Overall service is good for a short flight"
Cons: "The legroom and my touchscreen was unresponsive - had to press the button multiple times."
Pros: "Genuine, warm and welcoming crew. Clean and spacious cabin. Very tasty vegetarian breakfast."
Pros: "Great views, fun airport w live music...seeing storm over Auckland"
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: "I didn't know there was free hot food and beverages so I just took xannies and fell asleep but luckily they woke me up and ate really good chicken for free I was like wtf how is this free and there was no one sitting next to me so I felt like I was in first class"
Cons: "I wish the plane ride was longer I could live on that plane"
Pros: "I liked that there was breakfast on the plane"
Cons: "The seats weren't very adjustable or comfortable and there could have been more movie and tv selection for such a long flight"
Cons: "couldnt change it"
Pros: "Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Checking in for flight was not very good. Counter help was not well informed/trained."
Pros: "On the Honolulu to Manila flight the crew were attentive and pleasant. I was comfortable and had TV to pass some of the hours on board. On the Manila to Singapore, there was no TV and the crew were less pleasant."
Cons: "The young crew on the Manila to Singapore flight could have seen the journey as more of an opportunity to actually do their job rather than a chance to sit at the back chatting. When I approached one for a hot water bottle as it was freezing, she screwed up her face at my request and turned and spoke to her colleague in a language I couldn't understand making me feel uncomfortable. One of the worst things though was the food. Throughout the whole flight from Oahu to Singapore, there were no vegetarian options (even the mid flight sandwich had ham and cheese). Further, you were served a hot meal almost within an hour of being in the air, then had to wait about six hours for the snack and then another hot meal was served within three hours of that at a very rushed pace making the experience very unenjoyable. This happened on the way to oahu also so it is something that they practice regularly. Terminal 2 at Manila is also terrible if you have a long layover!"
Cons: "The transfer in Manila was like nowhere else. After the security check we were sent outside where buses were driving to claim our checked-in luggage to take it for another check just to drop it one minute later. Anywhere in the world if you board a flight with a stop-over you see your luggage at the final destination, not the case if you fly trough Manila."
Cons: "Improve Size of Visual Monitor"
Cons: "Better aircraft"
Cons: "Would be better if flight arrived on time & we didn't have to wait for 30 minutes on the plane waiting for a terminal to be available"
Cons: "Hoping to have a flight on time and not delayed."
Pros: "Yes, they were nice and approachable at all time. The seat was fine, I slept most of the time"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seat was excellent"
Cons: "Having the luggage checked in transit without going out to open it for inspection"
Pros: "Business class was good but sears small"
Cons: "Flight to BKK better seats"
Pros: "The lay flat bed was amazing and I like the privacy of the seats; this Philippines Airline business class is enjoyable!!"
Cons: "Don’t ask the stewardess for recommendations on what dishes to eat for meals; their taste is quite different from yours!! My stewardess recommended a pork dish that she said was tasty, but I found it dry and chewy!! But that’s Filipino taste!!"
Cons: "The extra bag fee is insanely high, $175."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We didn’t appreciate the delay."
Pros: "Aside from the scare of not making my flight because it was overbooked. I think the boarding process could have been a little more efficient. The staff are amazing as always which is why PAL is my preferred airline when traveling to and within Philippines."
Cons: "Since I have pretty broad shoulders, it’s difficult to sleep in the isles. Not to mention the multiple babies crying. Outside of that, everything was wonderful."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Veeery narrow cheap lined seats."
Cons: "No movies in thePR301"
Pros: "Excellent crew, very attentive and polite. New/newly refurbished plane and very clean."
Cons: "I thought I read somewhere that Premium Economy had their own toilets but that didn't seem to be the case. The Mabuhay Lounge (for those with access) is in need of a renovation and can be hard to find seats."
Pros: "Help because the delay caused us to miss our next flight"
Cons: "Delay, crew didn’t prioritize us getting off the plane when they knew our situation of missing our flight. We didnt get food choice because they ran out when they got to us."
Pros: "the people"
Cons: "flight was delayed But what else is new with PI. AIR. My husband has flown many times with pi air and he says you care about your bottom line only. it takes money out of our pockets every time we are delayed and or our luggage is lost. Now go and do the right thing."
Pros: "Flew from Manila to Toronto using Philippine Airlines it was a 15 hour flight. Overall went great. You can even have whisky for free."
Cons: "The boarding was delayed and then when we got on the plane, take off was delayed and we just stood on the tarmac for around 30 minutes."
Cons: "Delayed no announcement made no compensation I am on an official schedule this is very unfortunate"
Pros: "Very happy the crew was good all in all a good flight and great value for money."
Pros: "The flight was on time, actually even earlier arrival. I enjoyed watching the movies for free!"
Cons: "One of my checked-in luggages, upon retrieval at the baggage claim area, did not have its luggage cover and worse, it was not locked!!! When i went to the PAL baggage assistance desk, we found out that it was inspected by TSA. So disappointing that TSA did not lock my luggage."
Pros: "Decent video choices but not great; decent checkin process"
Cons: "No leg room. Bad food."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't moving fast enough The orange juice they gave me was bad (stale) - seemed like it's already past it's expiry date"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding was efficient and flight departed and arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Food is awful, and options are limited. I also think they need to reconsider playing music on the aircraft, it’s quite irritating."
Pros: "Toilets were kept clean through out the flight. New and clean airplane. Good space between the seats."
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude in general (serving food, drinks, answering questions), he skipped rows when giving hot towels (I wasn't served a hot towel). In-flight entertainment: limited movie selection, even more limited tv shows selection. Music section was very poor, it needs more selection with variaty, known artists, more radio channels. And music tracks should be in a tracklist form with song information, not only 1 hour-long tracks of back to back music (with no info). Meals - Mains were ok, deserts were terrible in both of my flights. Snacks were also bad, a scone and beef and cheese sandwich. Very blend, white bread only and oily. We weren't served enough bevarages, so oily and high-carb foods made me very thursty. No water fountains, it'd be great to have some around since staff does not give enough beverage and I was forced to chuck my water before boarding the airplane (the water I bought in the airport after passport check!!!!!!!) It was extremely cold."
Pros: "The cabin crew were great and immediately responded when I pressed the FA button on the remote. The flight itself was relatively smooth and on time."
Cons: "The myPAL app again would not connect to the plane’s wifi although I was able to use the free 30-minute internet service. The seats are pretty hard and I used the pillow for more cushion."
Pros: "It landed safely."
Cons: "It was an hour late leaving Hawaii THAT'S NOT GOOD! And they refused to let me use a 'foot locker' piece of luggage that has been accepted by MANY different airlines and has flown all over the world many times except on this flight and this company. They made me buy a $10 box and transfer everything into it. Then I tossed my foot locker piece of luggage in the trash bin. They were very uncooperative and petty."
Pros: "I flew PAL 2 years ago and was impressed on this flight home. An awesome added feature that blew me and my 10 year old daughter away was the entertainment! My daughter is afraid of flying. But as soon as we boarded and saw this feature, she completely forgot about her fear. She was so pre-occupied during entire flight to Manila that I was able to relax and enjoy the trip myself. There was a great selection of movies available that almost made me wish the flight was longer so I could watch more! The USB charging option was also a neat feature to have. I could easily charge our phones throughout the flight. I was also impressed with how well staffed the crew was. There was always a crew member going up and down the aisle with water and offering assistance in any way possible. Overall I am happy with the flight. PAL has made the trip home easier, more pleasurable and most importantly closer than ever before. Thank you PAL!"
Cons: "It's always difficult to sleep on airlines especially on long flights. I hope one day the seats are much more comfortable and roomier to have some extent ended leg room and better reclining capability."
Cons: "Super delayed flight was delayed about 4hours, but is understandable due to storms."
Pros: "the airline crew were very accommodating to get the family seated together when everybody were boarded."
Pros: "The overall price of the airline tickets."
Cons: "We flew Philippine Airlines 4x in 9 days; 3 of the flights were delayed by two or more hours. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "2.5 hour check in than 3+ hour delay to take off (I flew 4 flights in one week with them, all 3+ hour delay) in flight entertainment only on app you had to download prior to departure. Small seats, airbus 330 with 3-3-3 configuration. Food was awful. Avoid this airline, any perceived thought of saving time with direct flights lost with take off delays. In Manilla all their flights were severely delayed. In country this is a running joke."
Cons: "delayed, unsatisfying service"
Pros: "Philippine airlines was a great airline to travel with, with friendly staff good food comfortable seats and lots of entertainment options for the flight there and back will definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and just barely fit into my seat. Two inches taller and I wouldn't have fit at all. I know they're marketed towards a primarily Asian audience, and the plane was totally full, but don't expect to be comfortable if you're bigger than 6'."
Pros: "Great service and wifi on board!!!!"
Pros: "I travel all the world many countries all the time and this landing in guam was on the top ten maybe number 2 of all times congrats pilots very good so good happy"
Cons: "the window was dirty [ someone wiped nose on it maybe] please chek the clean crews for the windows ."
Cons: "For the ticket price- I think that it would be nice to have more comfortable seats as the flight is a long one and it would also be nice if the crew make their rounds to check on the passengers and ask if they are comfortable"
Pros: "Food quality ,presentation and taste has improved a lot!!"
Cons: "It's not exactly that i didn't like... It's just that there's still room for improvement with the crew service."
Pros: "They gave extra fried chicken, in addition to the meals on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late and they made no accommodations for that fact. I had to rely on my wits the kindness of my connecting Airline and my ability to run across 5 terminals to make it. They did not even give me the correct time as to when their flight was scheduled to arrive. They were off by an hour"
Pros: "HNL to MNL - cost me 10hrs of my precious time as the plane was diverted to Clatk International Airport. MNL to SING - flight was delayed for an hour. SING to MNL - status update from PAL indicated our flight was changed from 10:30 to 11:30 therefore my connecting flight to HNL as well as arrival time has also changed. VERY POOR PAL AIRPORT FACILITY FOR HAVJNG ONLY ONE WORKING RESTROOM FOR THE WHOLE TERMINAL! With flights getting delayed people are anxious and frustrated. There are no place to relaxed and calm down. Staff are everywhere standing and glaring so as the other passenger. Worst airport ever!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Few passengers during the flight."
Cons: "They served meal an hour after the take off. Then another meal an hour before landing. I was starving. Some stewardess are not friendly. One stewardess spilled water on me and she didn't even say sorry."
Cons: "Flight attendant pay more attention and nicer to foreigners than filipino passengers."
Cons: "We boarded the plane approx on time but we were sitting for a while when an announcement asked for 2 passengers to identify themselves with the crew. Nothing more was said until we were now 40 minutes past departure time and the Captain comes on to say we were waiting for a take off slot from the Air Traffic Control!!! No apologies or advice as to what had happened. We finally were on the runway at approx 12 midnight or 1 hr 25 mins late. To top it all I get an email from PAL at 1.56am (I saw this after arrival of course) which said the plane had changed its arrival time to 9.30am - but the departure time remained the same!!! How am I also going to receive an email when I am already flying?? Food was aweful Entertainment system was also aweful - my future flights on PAL will be only a last resort"
Cons: "The staff were unprofessional. They seldom smile and it's as if they are still in apprenticeship. Also, I hate it when they don't serve meals when the seatbelt sign is on. I understand in the case of hot beverages"
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi, outlet to charge devices, built in phone stand, current movies, & water every 2 hours."
Cons: "8 hours flight only 1 snack and you have to pay for dinner if you want it."
Pros: "Paying for $1200+ for an 8 hour flight to Guam and all the crew fed us was coffee and water plus pretzels. Oh yeah have to pay for a real meal"
Cons: "5 minutes early arrival time."
Cons: "The food options are poor at best and it's really sad that they don't offer anything for free. My ticket wasn't cheap so I can't imagine they're saving me money on my ticket by not offering better food on that long of a flight. Especially lacking in any gluten free options or anything resembling healthy. A small thing of fruit that probably has 70 calories is not enough to sustain someone on a near 8 hour flight."
Pros: "No delays, nice personnel and food pas OK but a little pricy."
Cons: "Internet costing 8$ for an hour is way overpriced, no leg room, seats not really comfy, no meals provided during an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Change of seat w/o any notification."
Pros: "Flight was timely"
Cons: "We flew to Hawaii for a friend's wedding and many of us flew different airlines. You would think that a flight that was 8 hours would include a meal?! Our friends who flew Delta and American all got meals and snacks. Another issue too is that you do get free movies although they don't tell you as your boarding that you would need their App to watch it. So if you didn't download it before take off you have to pay for their internet or their tablet."
Pros: "Checked on carry on for no charge"
Pros: "I enjoyed the amount of space I had. (I was in an exit row.)"
Cons: "The crew and staff of united in general seemed to really be unhappy with their jobs. The flight crew seemed very unpleasant."
Cons: "The passenger in the seat next to mine rented a tablet from United and proceeded to spend the entire night playing games or watching movies -- he never turned it off the entire flight. The glare from the tablet made it impossible for me to sleep or even nap on the flight. I asked the fellow if he would mind dimming the screen but he told me that wasn't possible. If United could put dimmable screens on the tablets it would help create an environment conducive to sleep, which is what most passengers want on a redeye flight. Alternatively, privacy screens would cut down on the shared glare. As it was, the flight was a nightmare."
Pros: "Pilot flew very smooth flight and landing. Excellent"
Cons: "Crew failed to help when several babies were screaming in pain. Failed to help parents and seemed to be oblivious. Poor form."
Pros: "Overbooked the first flight which was a bit nerve wracking. Luckily got a seat. Seats are a bit small and the food was as expected."
Cons: "Overbooked flight."
Pros: "My companion and I had sweatshirts on and blankets. We were absurdly cold for the duration of the trip."
Cons: "Too cold"
Pros: "Nothing. Never flying United again. This was the first and only time. Going back to JetBlue and American."
Cons: "Wifi was broken as it was on the way out there. So nothing to do for 8 hours in flight. Flight attendants were rude and snappy. Plane smelled if urine when entering and was verbally expressed by multiple passengers. All complaints were handled with a shoulder shrug and an "oh well"."
Pros: "The flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "- United's entertainment system was not working again. The system was completely down. The plug-in power was also down. - Boarding was delayed because there were no crew members willing to help passengers figure out how to load the overhead bins."
Cons: "Noise level, couldn't use my light as it kept children up behind me and the guy next to me. Had to purchase food if desired."
Pros: "The crew onboard the United flights were very friendly and capable. Plus I downloaded the United app and was able to watch any show I could think of but Landed on Westworld, cause I can never catch-up."
Cons: "Virtually no food included on an $800 dollar 5 hr flight. I even upgraded economy elite. In the equivalent range Alaskan gives a very nice fo-meal in a box. Finally, I arrived for my flight from San Luis Obispo an hour and 45 minutes early and stood in line to check my small bag for the first 45 minutes. At which point the desk agent made the announcement she would no longer take bags. Luckily my bag was small enough to be considered a carry on so I just went to security. I don't know what people with large bags behind me did? then it takes another 45 mins to get through security at which point they see my 5 inch knife on X-ray machine. Which I packed 3 days earlier when I planned to check my bag. Lost the knife, fine, my fault, goodbye favorite pocket knife. but now I am randomly selected for explosives LOL by TSA. I get to the gate the gate agent scans a ticket for the person infront of me. I step up and the same gate agent puts her hand over the scanner and says sorry it is late!? There were 6 other people behind me and this is a 22 person plane. So I still not upset walk back out of the security area because TSA closes the area in between flights and call United. They get me on the next flight out and rescheduled my following flight only a 3 hour wait. An hour goes by and the first desk agent, they have been holding the first flight because enough people aren't onboard. SLB is a joke."
Pros: "I was in comfort plus so I had more leg room but in middle seat."
Cons: "Being in middle seat Stewards rude Everything (food and snacks, enertainment- wifi wasn't working so we couldn't view on our personal devices) needed to be purchased. Even delta and Hawaiian airlines give free meals. Didn't get seat assignment till I got to gate. Not allowed to say if I wanted window or aisle seat."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and hospitable."
Cons: "Need rest room in middle area of plane. Movies need to change weekly. Same movies a week later."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Having to wait"
Pros: "The flight and crew were satisfactory"
Cons: "That was probably the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. There is no room to stretch your legs or to recline the seat. To fly almost eight hours sitting straight up with no leg room is not something I want to do on a regular basis."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and welcoming all smiles and very good mood. The plane was clean and nice."
Cons: "No pillows for sleep, a/c was VERY poor. Hardly any air was coming out, I was sweating the entire flight. I hate that there are no screens."
Pros: "I was able to get an aisle seat"
Cons: "The pain in my ears"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled, stuck for an extra day in Honolulu. United put me in a hotel for the night, but I have to check out at 11am and the new flight doesn't leave until 8:40pm. So now I'm just supposed to sit around the airport for 9 hours? Plus last night they told me all the other flights were full. But my girlfriend called this morning and also checked online and there was an earlier flight at 7am, that would have still got me to Denver tonight. and there WAS availability on it, but since I got different information from different people, time ran out and I couldn't get on that one. So I lose an entire day of my trip, and have to cancel the appointments I had scheduled in Denver for today. Plus the expense of having to find food in Honolulu for a day. So...yay united. Once again, you're awesome."
Cons: "Wifi coverage was not reliable"
Cons: "The movies kept doing out. They told us to log in and get compensated in a few days"
Cons: "The 777 has the smallest seats ever!! Horrible flight!!! Seats are made for midgets!!!"
Cons: "Snack was terrible"
Pros: "Everything went well from check in, to boarding, to the flight. Flight attendants were all great and attentive. Flight left a few mins early and arrived 20 mins ahead of schedule. Coffee was FANTASTIC."
Cons: "In flight wifi was inoperative. I could not access any in flight entertainment throughout the flight."
Cons: "Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Being told that the United Wi-Fi was not working and then being told we could "Rent" tablets to watch movies on. They should have been free or very low-cost."
Cons: "I had to miss an extra day of work because of the delay coming back to Los Angeles. Thankful the Kayak app informed me of the delay in time to not go so early but once at the airport, my flight got delayed 2 more times."
Pros: "That my seat was next to only one other person"
Cons: "The little girl behind me constantly kicking my seat."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good service."
Cons: "Not really flight related, but having the call buttons located on arm rests was terrible and interrupted sleep for everyone whenever someone's arm would bump a button and set it off."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "In flight features such as wifi and private viewing wasnt working an i specifically choose united because of this feature"
Pros: "great service from flight attendant Angela and Asian crew."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the fact that there were chargers between the seats"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours due to a "maintenance/paperwork" issue. Because of this I missed my connecting flight to Tampa and was rescheduled but now I must fly yo Newark and then to Tampa. My trip will be completed 12 hours later than originally intended and as such my plans have been upset as well as my self. I will not be flying united ever again after this trip."
Pros: "Was delayed two over two hours in HNL. When UA decided to transfer all passengers to another plane, it was such a beautiful flight and the Pilot of the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like the idea that we went given a free meal because the plane broke down."
Cons: "Late flight bad food. Poor mannered employees and patrons"
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Same experience on ANOTHER 8 hour flight I have NEVER flown on an international flight and NOT received a complimentary meal or two...When I'm flying for 8 hours. On top of that the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I shouldn't feel a person grabbing a magazine or pulling down a tray when I'm sitting in the seat in front of them. I couldn't consistently watch a show or movie for 3 minutes thanks to the wifi and or app on MY Samsung tablet....it's SO sad that you guys couldn't have them already installed like other airlines. This airline is already in hot water, I expected MUCH better customer service. I will do my best NOT to use them again and tell others to do the same."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and crews helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "A parent with 2 yr old was placed in the middle seat where the toddler cried throughout the whole flight. Father had to constantly ask me to get up so he can take the son to the back of the plane to console him. It was an overnight flight from HNL to SFO so i didn't get any rest at all. Maybe parents with toddlers should be seated on aisle seats."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, couldn't been nicer."
Pros: "It's so fast excellent"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Loved that United gave us TSA Pre check...."
Cons: "Limited food options on board"
Pros: "No WiFi. The new United system is worthless on most flights."
Cons: "Entertainment and food."
Pros: "Ground Stall and flight attendants were unusually pleasant. Perhaps the recent bad press United has been receiving had something to do with the turn around. All for the better. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "As usual, plane was crowded and seats were uncomfortable, even in economy plus."
Cons: "Not getting a confirmation email or check-in reminder. No working wifi or power docks on plane (marketed as having in-seat entertainment). Moved to the back of the plane with no recline and destroying my back after telling them I need at least minimal recline. Out of most food options upon being served last and given a soggy undressed chicken wrap for 12.00. Finally, the gate dock was not able to connect with the plane upon arrival yeilding a 30 minute delay at the gate. Unapologetic crew simply ready to turn onto the next flight. This is why I don't fly united."
Cons: "Not only did we sit on the plan for almost two hours before they realized that the plane didn't have enough gas we sat there for a another 30 minutes circling the dam flight line only to realize that there is to much cargo in the plane that it's to heavy to fly they didn't let anyone use the bathroom and we proceeded back to the terminal only to get on a different plane to fly out"
