Cons: Cabin was too hot once premium curtains were closedRead more about Air New Zealand
Cons: Cabin was too hot once premium curtains were closed
Pros: Seat was too narrow
Cons: See above
Pros: The corn chips!
Pros: Very helpful in getting on board luggage stowed, attractive interior
Cons: Scheduling was poor (turned up lighting far early than needed) and made too many and too loud of general announcements through the night for an overnight flight.
Pros: Great entertainment
Cons: Overall great
Cons: The landing was poor , almost to a point of dangerous . Too much turbulence during flight. And the drops should have been avoidable
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: More food would have been better
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: wasn't able to incline my seat...
Cons: being able to incline my seat...
Pros: Premium economy is the way to go. So much more comfortable.
Cons: This flight was close to perfect. Boarding process at the gate was a bit hectic, but manageable.
Pros: Crew very friendly, nice airplane, clean
Cons: more room in economu
Pros: on time, crew were friendly
Cons: have to pay to watch movie
Cons: Due to limited internet in Rarotonga, we weren’t able to fully check in until we got to the counter. The flight in came with two checked bags and not our flight to Auckland. We were expected to pay a fee at the counter but was charged $170 for the counter checkin of one bag. This price was not listed or posted anywhere during the booking or via email for mobile check-in.
Cons: $80 baggage fees for luggage over 7 kg. I wasn’t aware of high price and luggage weight restriction until I was at airport
Pros: Very friendly flight attendants
Pros: I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage...
Cons: I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again
Cons: We booked our tickets and chose our seats and nowhere did it warn or tell us that we were located in a ‘safety row’ where the arm rest would not fold up. So we could not stretch out during our 12 hr flight. This was the most uncomfortable experience I have ever had on the multiple trips I have done between USA and Australia or New Zealand. The seat ordering from the kitchen was rarely available, even after the flight attendants had finished food service and pick up. The flight attendants weren’t very friendly.
Pros: The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight.
Cons: I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities.
Pros: Very fun and attentive crew. Always food and drinks available. Very comfortable seats and lots of options for movies and activities.
Pros: same as above
Cons: same as above. Along with attmpeting to get boarding passes in LAX staff could not do in IAD was unpleasant as lady kept asking for boarding passes then said she needs a print of the intineray
Pros: Crew were lovely.
Cons: Had a lot of hassle adding baggage to this leg of my trip on booking. At check in i was asked to pay $130 for baggage, which was no surprise. Luckily Air New Zealand ground staff sorted it out and I did not have to pay. I will book direct with the airlines next time.
Pros: After the schedule for my Houston flight was delayed by 3 1/2 hours, customer service was able to put me on a flight thru LAX which got me back to my original ORD arrival time and avoided an overnight stay before continuing on home. The meal vouchers offered were an unexpected bonus. Thanks.
Cons: Foot space in front of seat was limited.
Pros: My Dreamliner my seatmate the CREW! Flight attendant even made balloon for a little girl in shape of a dog!
Cons: Loved everything
Pros: Air New Zealand is one of the best air experiences we've had. Employees seem to enjoy their jobs and are usually happy. Very service oriented. Ground staff and check in terrific. Why can't USA folks and TSA figure this out? Updates from flight deck were good and pilot seemed to avoid some expected turbulence. Cabin crew friendly, competent, helpful. Food was very good, nice touch with comp wine. Entertainment options were many and good variety. Hope to fly ANZ again someday.
Cons: A little weird, to go out of secured concourse and go back through security, again, in Auckland. Safety, I suppose. At least process was fast and efficient and folks were friendly.
Pros: The crew was super friendly and went out of their way to do what they could to make everyone happy and comfortable.
Cons: I had input that I was vegan when I booked and it’s on my airpoints profile- however I did not receive a vegan meal which was a bit disappointing.
Pros: Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable.
Cons: Would have liked in flight entertainment
Pros: Top quality flight
Cons: The black boxes next to your feet are oddly placed and limit leg room.
Cons: the person next too me was overflowing in their seat so much they took up a quarter of my spot.. it was not work making the flight uncomfortable by making a stink about it but I paid for a whole seat not 3/4 of one!
Pros: The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage.
Cons: Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate.
Pros: Paid extra $100 for 2”premium “seats. What a joke. And no entertainment for an 11hour flight!!
Cons: Food was ok for airplane food
Pros: Staff was nice.
Cons: No room, It was painful for someone with nerve damage and severe arthritis to even get to a seat.
Pros: Smooth operation once onboard
Cons: Boarding sequence mix-up
Pros: Crew was professional and very friendly, food was excellent, entertainment choices were fantastic. The seats were even comfortable and we were in coach!
Cons: Nothing, everything exceeded expectations.
Pros: everythign aboht the trip was great
Pros: seat crew food entertainment
Cons: no wifi
Pros: It was simply fantastic - all of it!
Cons: Delayed by 45 minutes
Pros: The skycouch!!The
Cons: The entertainment selection was boring.
Pros: I liked the entertainment selection. There were plenty of movies to choose from--and I do mean a massive selection. Also, the food was better than I usually expect from airplane food. The crew was very friendly.
Cons: I guess this goes for all economy class seats, but there's no room to move. I was lucky to have an empty middle seat (which merits the "good" rating over the "okay"), but even with that, maneuvering was difficult (trying to get stuff from the carry on stored beneath the seat, etc.). Things got worse when the person in front of me decided to put his chair back all the way into my face.
Pros: Air New Zealand may be one of the best airlines I've ever flown. Fantastic service and great flight!
Pros: Lost our baggage twice!
Pros: Smoothe flight
Cons: 1/2 hour late to depart
Pros: I loved the food, the flight attendants were lovely, and the selection of free entertainment meant I was never bored.
Pros: The plane was probably the best for international flight I have ever taken. More to the point the seat was so comfortable I was actually able to sleep, The seat also many great features (outlets to charge electronics, little storage area, and entertainment screen)
Cons: The check in (totally self serve) was awful. It was confusing not user friendly. US airlines have kiosks to print boarding passes. This did too but missed some steps, ie printing luggage tags which you needed to print yourself and attach and place on a conveyor belt. The airlines did not have enough help to guide people through this process.
Pros: Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous!!!!!! Flight Crew was very friendly, helpful, and always smiling.
Pros: Did get noticed that the flight was cancelled and appreciate keeping me informed on that.
Cons: Some of the crew were a bit pushy
Pros: Brand new plane, great leg room in coach. My next suggestion would be to buy "sky couch"
Cons: I got pulled aside and delayed my boarding because someone wanted to switch my seat. WHY do I have to be delayed for this? I felt it was very poor customer service. I. You can just print a list and ask at the aircraft's entrance.
Pros: The tv size, charging station, foot hammock
Cons: No delay,
Cons: Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight.
Pros: Great flight, service, food and crew.
Pros: We were treated very rudely.
Cons: We were treated very rudely. We should’ve taken another airline
Cons: For such a long flight should have given us more water. But were responsive when asked.

Cons: Unnecessary delays
Cons: i missed mt plane because i i forgot my passport!!!
Pros: Good crew
Cons: Poor meals in cardboard boxes
Pros: Overall the flight was lovely. Flight crew was wonderful and I can’t say enough good things.
Pros: Great service on the flight.
Cons: The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL
Pros: The wide selection of free movies and TV shows. The food is tasty!
Cons: Our first flight to LAX was delayed by 7 hours so we spent the day in Sydney airport, spending more money on meals that hadn’t been planned. Because of the delay, we missed our connecting flight from LAX to JFK. The flight we were re-booked on was also delayed for mechanical/paperwork issues so we arrived back home in NYC 8 hours later than originally scheduled. This caused us to spend more money on a taxi since it was too late to take public transportation. it also made it difficult to settle back in at home because both my husband and I had to get up early for work the next day and we missed several hours of unpacking and cooking time we would have had had our flight not been delayed.
Pros: *Our flight from LA to Melbourne on January 7th was cancelled. Fortunately, Qantas crew members were able to place us on an American Airlines flight to JFK the very same day.
Pros: The crew were very polite and helpful given the stressful circumstances.
Cons: Boarding was a mess. One staff member trying to deal with a full flight of delayed and tired passengers. Given the delay out of NY (due to weather) connecting flight to melbourne was missed. Not happy that I was put on a flight to Sydney instead. Entertainment system is dated. Personal headphones don’t plug in and the interface was unresponsive. Expected better from qantas.
Cons: Rigid with assigned infant seats. Would not move us to bassinet bulk head area though we would pay for it. Flight went well regardless.
Pros: Attentive staff with great food. Only issue is seats in economy are a bit cramped.
Cons: Seats a bit cramped in economy.
Pros: Pre-boarding customer service staff changed seats for extra leg-room

Cons: Entertainment system was not working at my seat
Pros: The service was great. Flight got delayed a day, but everyone was well taken care of in spite of the situation. During the flight the staff was attentive and courteous. I'd definitely fly with Qantas again.
Cons: The fact that the flight was delayed, but that was to no fault of the staff. I'd definitely let that slide.
Cons: I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates
Pros: Loved the hot chocolate and chocolate.
Cons: No choices available for dinner and other snacks not very good.
Pros: Friendly, helpful and professional crew which which always makes for a better overall experience.
Cons: The crew seemed to have to spend much of their time as IT consultants assisting with iPads.
Cons: The complete lack of space between seats Old style plane Very average new movie selection
Pros: Luckily the flight was only 3 hours
Cons: Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing.
Pros: Everything was great about these flights, food and service included. We had a slight delay on our return flights but were updated along the way. Definitely recommend!
Pros: I arrived in Melbourne 9 hours after I was scheduled to. The flight was severely delayed out of NYC and then I missed my connection out of LA and flew to Sydney instead. I was offered a $20 voucher for food at jfk, and that was it.
Cons: See above
Cons: 1. Flight 12 left 2 hours late from New York 2. Flight left 21/2 hours late from Los Angles 3. We asked to be seated on the tiles , as we are seniors we needed to get up regularly during the night (16 hour flight during the night) We were seated window and middle seats. The person on the aile was had a broken knee and was wheel- chaired on to the plane. As a result we could not get up to go to the bathroom. 4. Because we left late from Los Angles , we missed our connecting flight on to Auckland. Qantas was kind enough to apologise, put us on another flight and gave us vouchers worth a grand total of $10. 5. We then arrived 2 hours late in Auckland, where we missed our connecting flight to Wellington. 6. Our 2 bags that were checked-in at New York are still missing. This is being written 4 days left New York. 7. WE have since had to purchase new winter clothes.
Pros: I liked receiving a menu of food options. I liked the movie selections (although there were better option from JFK>LAX than LAX>SYD)! Crew were friendly.
Cons: Those with special meals receive their food way earlier than the rest of the plane.
Pros: Entertainment Is always good
Cons: The five hour delay. Would have appreciated a phone call so I didn't have to get to the airport so soon. Food used to be so much better
Pros: Staff was courteous and the in flight food was good
Cons: The flight was delayed 1 and a half hours to start with. Although the entertainment system on the plane is very good, half way through the flight it started having issues. Movies stopped playing and then the whole system locked up. First it was just individual seats that had problems but eventually the entire plane was unable to view anything. Even a complete reboot did not help. We spent the last 6hrs of the flight unable to view anything even though they repeatedly tried to reset the system
Pros: Crew were good & Gold ( Emerald) FFlyer so boarded well
Cons: Small seats (narrow) isle seat, being knocked on the shoulder by passing people
Pros: Food was amazing as was the crew
Cons: Seats get stuck and difficult to maneuver to the upright position.
Pros: Good meals, friendly service. Very comfortable
Cons: 2 hour delay
Pros: Even though the delay caused me to miss my connecting flight to Perth Qantas booked me onto the next available one so my overall delay was reduced to one hour. Thanks for not screwing me over.
Pros: Paying for extra leg room was the best investment. We felt like we were in business class (although haven't ever travelled it). The crew were sensational, obliging, friendly and accommodating.
Cons: We had to collect our luggage in Los Angeles and then re-lodge it for the New York leg of our flights. It was a nuisance but Qantas staff did everything in their power to make it as smooth as possible.
