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: "the service. coffee and teas was very good. probably because of the Fiji kind attendants and water."
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: "Perfect trip. Accommodated my low sodium diet. Professional, efficient and friendly."
Pros: "Fiji Airways is among the top airlines for the long haul routes. New aircraft, clean cabins, fine entertainment and the friendliest crew you can find. They are consistently great."

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

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: "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: "very good service, no delays"
Cons: "would be nice to have more leg room"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
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: "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: "We get to LA for our connection and security says we need to check in again, and no one is at the fiji airways desk to check us in! The security guard sees this, lets us through to check in at the gate so we sprint there and 4 agents are standing around saying they are surprised we made it."
Cons: "my seat, i am to big"
Pros: "Customer service was nice, the food was ehh."
Cons: "For an international flight, the seats were extremely tight. There could've been a few more movies to choose from."
