Airline reviews

Cons: "Repeatedly delayed, almost missed my next flight"

Pros: "The crew on Air NZ is consistently wonderful. The entertainment and sets for domestic flights are good, but not great. For international flights, their seats and entertainment are excellent."

Pros: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."

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: "Movies, texting other seats, requesting food and water from my screen"

Pros: "The crew was great but the seats were not."
Cons: "Roomier seats and meals should be served a little bit closer in between"

Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"

Pros: "Good for a sheot flight"

Pros: "Crew good, seat pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Seating choice was unavailable and we were stuck with two middle seats in a row of 4 across. Air NZ tried to bribe us into staying overnight and taking a one stop itinerary the next day."

Pros: "Amazing airline and seem less travel"

Pros: "Crew very friendly, nice airplane, clean"
Cons: "more room in economu"

Cons: "Auckland to Chicago was fine. Chicago to Minnesota was horrible. The departure plane showed up late due to weather which is understandable. Once the plane showed up we waited for over 4 hours for a pilots to show up. Our flight could have bee managed much better, poor job by United!"

Pros: "Pinot noir"
Cons: "No temp control, a little stuffy"

Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "economy has NO room, couldnt bend down to get anything out of my bag below the seat unless my face was in the lap of the person next to me"

Pros: "Excellent movies available. Decent food, regular water service, and pleasant staff. Will definitely look to fly Air New Zealand again."
Cons: "Not enough legroom. But I'm 6'2, so it's the same on all airlines."

Pros: "Everything was really smooth in terms of transitions."
Cons: "I didn’t like how people had different packages and I hadn’t realized that I didn’t have the food package."

Cons: "Please check your visa requirements is your flight is just a stopover in NZ to AUS (or elsewhere) as I could not return due to unfair transit visa issues in NZ. Have to book another one way flight and pay. completely nuts. I was not warned anywhere till I reached the airport."

Pros: "777 with really comfortable economy class seating, excellent selection of on-board entertainment, convenient A/C power at each seat and very friendly cabin crew made the trip a pleasure."
Cons: "No in-flight wi-fi at any price. I took it for granted they'd have it, probably should have checked first and downloaded what I needed ahead of time."

Pros: "The airport was great! Very easy access, fast check in and security. Loved the LOTR theme. Uneventful and beautiful flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"

Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."

Cons: "If the customer is given the option of special meal - 1. the special meal should be what one selects. I selected Hindu meal as per option and was being served Veg Jain Meal. 2. Should be made available. Though I booked the flight for both me and my wife and the special meal request was for both, the wrong Veg meal was made available only to my wife. Something is not right with their system. One you serve what you make us select and then the system is recording only for one passenger."

Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."

Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."

Pros: "Quickest boarding ever - Have hardly seen an airline having people board through the rear entry Super fun safety video All-in-all a great experience"

Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."

Pros: "Friendly prompt service!"

Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."

Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."

Pros: "Had premium economy and on such a short flight is luxury. Boarding via the stairs as it's an island was good. Crew are always great. PE is pretty comfy on NZ. This was a day flight so we didn't sleep. Food was great. Great range of entertainment options but can't wait for Wifi!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cool temps in plane"

Cons: "Got delayed in Queenstown and left the next day, First to Wellington, Auckland, Los Angeles and finally OKC"

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: "Extra leg room at front of plane."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."

Pros: "Good IFE"
Cons: "No enforcement of carry on - therefore no bin space"

Pros: "Nearly always enjoy flying Air NZ and this was no exception. Friendly efficient service."
Cons: "Not getting a choice of meal due to being last row of seats."

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."

Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."

Pros: "Flight was great, happy to be back home! Movies were awesome to watch on board, good selection!"

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight small space, food not great quality. Also a lot of plastic used, hope there is a recycling program in place or strives to reduce the waste for the food."

Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."

Pros: "Lost our baggage twice!"

Pros: "Fairly comfortable flight, good onboard entertainment. I liked the selection of movies and NZ tv programs. The food was delicious and I love that complimentary wine is served."
Cons: "My only complaint was in regard to the children's meals. We ordered children's meals ahead of time for our 2 kids. On our flight from SFO to AKL, no problem but on the return flight they only brought us one child's breakfast. I asked a crew member for the other one. She told us it would be brought over but never was. So my son had to wait until the regular meals were brought and have one of those. Not a big deal but it was a little annoying. Also, for the return trip dinner, they served delicious Kapiti ice cream with the adult meal but no ice cream with the kids' meals so my kids were super disappointed about that and my husband and I shared ours with them. Again, not a terrible offense, just a little annoying."

Pros: "Airport was easy to get to and the flight was very smooth and comfortable on a twin engine plane that is quite modern (noise level very minimal even though it is a propeller plane). Air New Zealand attendants were super friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Handsome, kind and efficient crew. Good amount of space in and around my seat. I was not cramped, although I was in the economy section. The plane interior was indeed nice. Power outlets (both USB and 110V DC) in my seat (I assume then, every seat had that). I fly few times a year between the West Coast and Europe and my overall flight experience on this flight I think was the best one I've seen in years. Food, quality and selection was good. Nice wines in economy. Sufficient number of clean, sufficiently roomy and well stocked toilets. The fare rate I was able to get was outstanding and contributed to the overall satisfaction. Even my neighbor, in the seat next to me was very polite, quiet and pleasure to travel with (though here New Zealand Air perhaps had less of an influence)."

Pros: "After finding it in the airport everything went extremely well. Able to find the flights and get to the gates with plenty of time. I did not have access to my email, but did see all the notices and appreciate that. Will travel with email access in the future."

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Cons: "none"

Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."

Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."

Pros: "Consistently good service from emirates crew"
Cons: "Too much meat in the dining options Boarding was slow"

Cons: "Food was not awful and most item not available in Fist Suites"

Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"

Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"

Pros: "The entertainment, seats, and food were all good."
Cons: "My only complaint would be that I didn't feel the crew members were around unless food was being served. I got up and asked for water twice, and at one point I woke up to find I had just missed the serving of a snack but when I rang my bell for a crew member to come over no one ever stopped by."

Pros: "Hospitality and food"

Cons: "Seat assignment and boarding process"

Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."

Pros: "Crew were very competent and nice."
Cons: "There was not enough overhead space for my carryon bag, so had to go further back in the plane to find space, this caused a problem when disembarking."

Pros: "Good Price with on first priority"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, comfortable seats. Drinks menu could have a little better variety (no Jack Daniels was a little surprising)"

Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."

Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"

Pros: "more leg room compare with other carriers, a variety of meals to choose from for special needed people (need to pre book online)"
Cons: "can't find anything to complain with"

Cons: "Usually I have enjoyed the food but the food on the return flight was not palatable."

Pros: "Once again, the food and entertainment selections were what I liked the most about the flight."
Cons: "The crew were a bit impatient with the passengers. There was a lady travelling with an infant, and she was not sure how to fasten the seat belt on the baby. It seemed to me that the stewardess was impatient in dealing with the passenger."

Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."

Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"

Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please). Emirates comes nowhere close to Singapore, Thai, or Turkish in terms of service."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment available."
Cons: "Seat space was very tight, and my seat was broken (would not recline). Also, a toddler screamed for over 6 hours straight with no intervention from the parents or crew."

Pros: "On time and cheap flight"

Pros: "I did not like the vegetarian food that was offered"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "food choices and entertainment options could be better"

Cons: "We specifically reserved AVM meal option and couldn't get that on flight. It appears that it was not only us but many passengers who reserved AVM meal option were complaining about not getting one. On 14 hours long flight not getting a good of your choice is bad."

Pros: "Flight was clean that's pretty much it."
Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines this was the worst service."

Pros: "Excellent crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Restrooms needed cleaning And Boarding were unorganized"

Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats were old and in row 44 & 45 would not reclineand others reclined too far."

Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."

Pros: "good crew, prompt timing, good food"
Cons: "long transit in Dubai"

Cons: "Leg space is very little.. Rest rooms were messy after a while."

Cons: "Last minute surprise with re-routing to Chicago. Few options provided on Changed booking."

Pros: "Kind flight attendants food."
Cons: "Too crowded."

Pros: "Overall had a great flight.. Timing was good! Good food and very friendly staff. Love to travel with emirites again."

Pros: "The ariplane, movies"
Cons: "The check-in staff"

Pros: "Everything was beyond expectation. Emirate just blew United off my first class service radar."
Cons: "The long bus rode on the termac was the only disappointment. I don't know why that happen, but it shouldn't have happen after a long flight. And the buses had no seats in them. That is not right."

Pros: "Comfortable, friendly crew, and very good food and service."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and flight delayed slightly."

Pros: "A passenger was felt sick ( breathing problem?? ) and crew members were very responsive to attend to him, by bringing in O2 bottle etc. Very impressive."
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "I saw air hostess giving me the food which another passenger opened and has returned it."

Pros: "Great flight and service"

Cons: "I had a 3 hour layover in Auckland before my connecting flight to Queenstown on the South Island. Quantas delays in Melbourne wiped that out forcing me to pay $500 NZD for a later flight on Air NZ. After contacting with Air NZ customer service and explaining the circumstances, they reduced it to $100 NZD. Pretty cool. Quantas basically said that since I had purchased a rock bottom priced ticket I should take a flying you know what at a rolling donut."

Pros: "All was good"

Pros: "I like the free check-bags"
Cons: "I like that if I can select the seats for free after booking ."

Pros: "seat comfort"
Cons: "breakfast, coffee"

Pros: "premium economy! excellent service in LAX by QF ground staff on transfer"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."

Cons: "After a three hour delay and missed connection and rebooked flight, that is when the service declined. We went through 4 different lines in the Dallas airport, almost missed the rebooked flight due to miscommunications and shuffling of where we were supposed to be. And now delayed luggage."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable & I loved the flexible head rest. The food was good. The flight attendant were friendly & attentive. It was my first time flying Qantas & it is my new favorite airline!"

Pros: "Crew were wonderful"
Cons: "The food must have been a bit off, though very tasty. Luckily had a 2 hou layover with nice lounge toilets"

Pros: "Sitting in an front isle seat with leg room and the helpful nice sterward"

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Made me run from connecting flight in Sydney."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"

Pros: "crew was nice. but we had massive delays and the attitude of the employees at the gate and on check in, was terrible"
Cons: "it was their fault that the plane was delayed (mechanical problems), when i asked to be transferred to jfk instead of newark, the employees at melbourne said it's not possible. basically it was their problem but refused to be accountable to it or to accommodate passengers"

Pros: "On time flight ,no problems."
Cons: "All was fine."

Pros: ":("
Cons: "Crazy long delay. Wasted a whole extra day at the airport with no help or accommodations. :("

Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"

Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."

Pros: "seats - very comfy flat bed to use on overnight flight"
Cons: "too warm, hard to sleep"

Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Trouble with iPad service."

Pros: "Super easy flight out of Auckland. Arrived in Nelson ahead of schedule."
Cons: "...the person coughing behind me..."

Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."

Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Baggage arrived late."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"

Pros: "The plane was small, but it was my first time, so it was cool. The flight was quick and easy, and they covered my luggage even though it was too big for the plane overhead lockers."

Pros: "Staff of Quantas was helpful getting us on the plane after Emerites suspended our tickets We had to pay for a second set of tickets at a higher price on the day of our flight Lucky we made the flight"
Cons: "The seating was s cramped Glad the flight was only 3 hours"

Cons: "We did not make this flight"

Cons: "I paid to select aisle seating but upon board found out my seating was the middle seat."

Pros: "The long trip !"

Pros: "The staff on board were very kind."
Cons: "Being delayed 3 1/2 hours...but at least now I know the ' friends' I traveled w/aren't the people I though they were. Their American Airlines flight was on time. They arrived at LAX at 6:30 a.m. By the time I landed at 10, they were already home. Without me."

Pros: "Despite the delay in boarding, we were greeted with a smile from the crew. Meal service went well and love the 3 choices of meals offered in economy"
Cons: "Would be nice to check-in for flight on app instead of laptop or tablet"

Cons: "Stop sending me these emails. I didn't even take this flight."

Pros: "Good Food and ok services"
Cons: "2 hrs delay. Entertainment system froze and no sound from time to time. Dirty seats."

Cons: "Purchased seats at front of plane and parent with toddler travelled get alone. Assured seats not at back of plane. But once on plane was the very last seats and no recline."

Pros: "Crew were wonderful 5 stars."
Cons: "Food soggy. Legroom is my biggest bug bear. Really appalling."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and lots of entertainment choices on the flight"
Cons: "I checked the flight prior to going to Auckland airport and all showed on time, by the time we cleared immigration and were in the airport we were notified of a six hour delay due to mechanical issues. I realize these things happen, but earlier notification would have prevented an 8 hour stay in the airport. The seats are pretty close together for a 3.5 hour flight. After hearing a lot of positive comments about Qantas, this was not a great first impression"

Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."

Cons: "2 hours late leaving"

Pros: "Loved the leg room, kind attendants, great meals."
Cons: "The technology malfunctioned the entire flight. It was less than ideal."

Pros: "The on board staff were fantastic, very personable, helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Good food, movies and just 10x better than discount airlines"

Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."

Pros: "Service is great and crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "Audio system (both of us) were down. We were had to move to other seats in order to enjoy inflight entertainment."

Pros: "It was a safe flight."
Cons: "I have flown Qantas several times across the Pacific and have had much better experiences on the longer flights. Everything was delayed, the plane was small, and the food was pretty bad, even by airplane food standards. I just expected more given what I have come to expect from Qantas."

Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"

Pros: "Everything was wonderful, the crew were all very polite and boarding went very smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"

Pros: "Good crew, spacious seats for economy. Good food."
Cons: "I wish they let us pick our seats, but they were assigned."

Pros: "Food was more than I expected!!"
Cons: "The length of the flight but that's not anyone's fault!!!"

Pros: "Didn't have to pay for drinks, after 4pm policy!"
Cons: "Call what was server 'supper' didn't quite cut it. More like tiny heavily salted cardboard."

Cons: "Seats where narrow"

Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you! Very safe and controlled Covid procedures. Made me feel safe."

Pros: "Very controlled and safe Covid procedures. Outlets and screens at every seat."

Pros: "Felt very clean and so glad they are not selling every seat"

Pros: "great everything!"

Cons: "Not delayed"

Pros: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."

Pros: "Airplane accelerated from stand-by directly to runway without preparation stop. Awesome!"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No leg room for 6’6” person."

Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"

Cons: "The unfortunate delay prevented me from attending my grandmother’s wake. Fewer delays would be helpful."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"

Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."

Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"

Pros: "Taco"
Cons: "Taco"

Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."

Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"

Pros: "The crew and the comfort plus seat"

Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."

Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."

Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"

Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."

Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"

Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."

Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."

Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"

Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."

Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"

Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"

Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."

Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."

Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."

Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."

Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"

Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."

Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."

Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."

Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"

Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."

Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"

Pros: "First time flying DELTA and to New York City. Really liked flying into Marine Terminal for it's smallness and easiness to collect luggage and catch a taxi."

Pros: "great crew!"

Pros: "On time, nice crew, clean aircraft."
Cons: "Check-in agt at bag drop was a sour puss. She could've been a bit nicer."

Pros: "A plane I could sleep on...very comfortable!"

Pros: "Friendly attendants; a lot of service available."
Cons: "Movie selection was minimal and mostly outdated; food was small portions and less than interesting choices."

Pros: "Crew was so helpful"
Cons: "Food ...special ordered food didnt make it in any flight. And quality of food needs bit improvement"

Pros: "The crew was great. Food was good."
Cons: "They SERIOUSLY need to update the entertainment on the plane. If everyone has to watch the same movie, which prehistoric in itself, can they at least make a recent movie and not one from the 80's??? They played 2 movies, both from the 80's!"

Pros: "Crew and comfort"
Cons: "Entertainment & Meal"

Pros: "We boarded and left on time, the service was good."
Cons: "The picture on the screen for the movie was very poor, although the selection of movies was really good."

Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were really limited. Movie options were mostly older movies."

Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late with no explanation"

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seats in a business class were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "It’s hard to compare after my recent flight on Emirates which was superb."

Pros: "Very friendly crew..."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable....oh well!"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest. Movies were mostly older and good PG at worst."
Cons: "Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest BUT very cramped in Basic Economy. I’m short and couldn’t even put my seat back for entire 11 hours because man behind me was so tall. Meals did not include any salad but did have small amount of veggies."

Pros: "I liked the complimententary pillows and blankets."
Cons: "The crew was not friendly at all. I had to ask for snacks from the crew in the back of the plane. The seats were not comfortable and the entertainment was dated and old."

Pros: "Food was very tasty. In-flight movies were up to date and very good."
Cons: "Seat was hard as a rock. No way to get comfortable on a 10 hour + flight. Seat in front practically is in your face when they recline. I'm not fond of the A330 layout. Give me a 777 any day."

Pros: "I traveled with my 4 children and my husband. Out of Honolulu the flight is scheduled very late so i had extemely exhausted children. The gate agents were so very helpful and so compassionate, especially because my 4 month old baby was crying. They stepped up and helped me with my other kids as my husband was out looking for water to make a bottle for him. Awesome awesome service! The crew was very nice and helpful when we were all sleeping. Did not bother us once and they let us sleep. Unfortunately I did not try their food service but my husband said it was delicious. The only thing was that they only offered a couple of movies via some small screen at the ceiling of plane making it hard for my 5 yo daughter to watch anything ultimately relying on their tablets which dies early. Overall, from check in to touch down, it was a very pleasant flight! Oh! And the blankets were so soft!!"

Pros: "They had vegetarian options at every in-flight meal. Heaven! Flight staff were all extremely attentive and polite."
Cons: "Seats are cramped (as with most budget travel) and entertainment options were not very good. Movies were mainly very old and games not very interesting."

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"

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

Pros: "By far the best flight attendents. Friendly, sincere and happy - the staff was outstanding."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like was the food. It badly needs a revamp."

Pros: "Had my backpack searched 4 times....one on the walkway on a folding table they set up...as I unhooked my bag (due to them breaking the two zippers in an earlier search) i asked what they were searching for and she saod "we search all American's bags" I said "just Americans?" she responded "Indians too"...then said "go ahead" after I mentioned the zipper issue.....destroyed any chance this would be an enjoyable flight or that I would ever return to Fiji, shame beautiful islands."

Cons: "Curry, breakfast sausage, amount of leg room."

Pros: "The flight itself was good, the front end/airline was not so good..."
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,"

Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Staff could have had more control.of boarding process. Pax just swarmed the boarding line."

Pros: "the service. coffee and teas was very good. probably because of the Fiji kind attendants and water."

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: "Aircraft was comfortable."
Cons: "The stranded in Apia."

Pros: "As always, the crew was great. The friendliest in the sky."
Cons: "The food options were less than stellar, but still ok."

Cons: "Small tight seating and horrible food."

Pros: "Comfort of "quiet zone" seating which was an extra $149 per person."
Cons: "Check in clerk and Manager were not very helpful. Check in was a nightmare with no organization for preferred flyers. Boarding was also disorganized and chaotic."

Cons: "The gate agent was extremely rude and asked to see our passports. She insisted our carry on be checked in. My son is disabled and requires an isle chair. The gate staff did not allow time for him to get to his seat before letting the rest of the passengers board and the staff assisting him were very upset as were the passengers who were wondering what was taking so long to get to their seats."

Pros: "Had decent entertainment options and enjoyed the blanket and pillow!"
Cons: "Food, I chose to not even eat the meals after my first experience with Fiji Airways."

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable"

Cons: "I had a seat assignment for my NAN-LAX flight and it was not honored. I had seat 9b assigned but when I got to the airport check in they put me in row 40."

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."

Cons: "Missed the flight! I find it ridiculous you do not get a "Check In Online" email from Fiji Airways if you do not book directly through them. That, to me, is insane. All Fiji Airways passengers, whether they booked directly or not, should get that email."

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

Pros: "Lots of legroom. Clean, new plan. Friendly qnd efficient crew."

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment consoles for the whole middle section went out and even a reboot could not correct the problem. No one with expertise to troubleshoot the problem."

Pros: "It was very good, the crew were amazing, and I didn't have any issue traveling all the way to my destination. Thank you Fiji Airway and the airlines cooperated with you."

Pros: "FLIGHT CREW ON PLANE ARE ALL SO POLITE HELPFUL. FOOD WAS GREAT."
Cons: "AND HAD TO WAIT WHILE ME AND MY BROTHER SEARCHED FOR ONE. EACH TIME WE BOARDED A FLIGHT WE WERE TOLD THAT IT Won't HAPPEN AGAIN AND IT DID IN LAX NADI AND TONGA. IF MY MOM HAD GONE ALONE WHO KNOW WHERE SHE WOULD BE. HANDICAP AND WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE CUSTOMERS SHOULD REALLY BE TAKEN CARE OF BECAUSE THEY CANNOT DO MUCH."

Pros: "Thanx for the isle seat,/gate agent who checked me in was especially great,calm n patient,courteious n happy!plane was clean and staff were warm n welcoming,,,Vinaka..."
Cons: "My two month trip began leaving LAX jun 11:where YOU had a witch hunt for carry on liggage.In 13 years,my carry on was acceptiable;On that day $120.00 extra was needed for me to travel with my carry on,,no issuies for years b4,or traveling after,B.S..psngr tkt#2607808503000,2260 ,4521, 439746 6,left a nansty taste in my mouth,claimed my bag was just a tiny bit to large.. !When crew was provideing water or other on flight products,they worked from back to front;which made it diffuacult to see the product offered comming!!
