Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The employees of Air New Zealand always make our trips excellent."

Cons: "We got off an hour and a half late as there was an audio technical problem."
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: "Wellington airport is the most accessible and relaxed I’ve used, and the Air New Zealand Check-in process was the easiest I’ve used so far."
Pros: "This is an overnight red eye flight. There is not much to interact with crew or service. It is simply long with attempts to sleep."
Pros: "Pinot noir"
Cons: "No temp control, a little stuffy"
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty so it was much more comfortable than the flight out. Movies were great"
Cons: "The food, economy has no room."
Pros: "The gate agents and the gate supervisors were rude and condescending My reservation was changed mid air and even though I made it to the gate 18 to Houston on time and boarding was still in progress I was not allowed to board. I was informed a plane was not a bus that I could hop on anytime I liked. When I protested that I had a confirmed reservation I was calmly told. “We canceled it because we didn’t expect you to make it.”"
Cons: "I missed my Thanksgiving Holiday because some powers that be decided I would not be able to make a connection So instead of waiting to we if I missed it and rebook then, like a normal airline, they preemptively cancelled and denied boarding."
Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"
Pros: "Please read notes above -"
Pros: "The option to gate check strollers for easy access with a toddler"
Cons: "The stroller wasn't delivered to the gate by Air New Zealand"
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: "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."
Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "My flight was moved up three hours and we were not notified. Two others we were traveling with were. Some people received meals and drinks and the flight attendants had a list of which seats. Apparently we weren't entitled to any. We were not treated the same as the others next to us. It was not an option. Perhaps only Australians were entitled."
Pros: "It was operated by air New Zealand so the service was top notch once I was able to resolve all other issues boarding."
Cons: "We had a flight bought on virgin Australia and operated with air New Zealand. The air New Zealand part was all great plane boarding etc, the horrible part is that we bought baggage allowances with virgin and they never transferred the information to air New Zealand. So there I am from the USA in a foreign country boarding a flight being asked to pay 500 nz dollars for a few kilos when I had already paid for it. Having to produce emails and payment information on something I had done months in advance. Overall I won’t recommend virgin next time I’d book directly with air New Zealand"
Pros: "Meal was excellent"
Cons: "Would have liked a blanket, it was a bit cold."
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: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."
Pros: "The check-in process was extremely simple and easy. The staff were very friendly and happy to help. They didn't make a huge deal out of small problems, as so many seem to like doing."
Cons: "Boarding is an issue. Please have more staff in the early stages of boarding to make sure people go to the correct lines . It's not immediately obvious and leads to frustration . I wasn't too bothered as I worked it out quickly but I could hear many others expressing their frustration around me . I was disappointed in the movie selection. I wanted more new release movies to choose from . Cabin crew friendly and polite . Love the wine ! Put up with being cramped .. would love more leg room but overall very happy ! Thank You everyone involved !"
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
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: "Great service, friendly people, kiwi spirit"
Pros: "Friendly, polite helpful"
Pros: "I was very impressed by the entire experience. Boarding and disembarking at front and at rear of plane, good spacing between seats, cookies, entertainment options... and lovely flight crew. Thank you Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."
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!"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew."
Pros: "I had always had a pleasant time with this airline but this 2nd longer flight wasn't it's best! I still have good opinions about this airline and plan on using it in the future."
Cons: "My neighbor in a 4 seat section kept elbowing me. Seats seemed to be too close to each other and for people who aren't average weight it is hard for them to stay within their given space. Eating meals was difficult because some people use their elbows all over the place."
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: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful."
Cons: "On the phone we were trying to add one more piece of luggage to pay for and they charged us too many times.... and depending on who we talked to either nothing could be done, or it was somehow going to magically fix itself by itself. Frustrating"
Pros: "Everything FA even got our bags out while taxiing into gate"
Pros: "Good IFE"
Cons: "No enforcement of carry on - therefore no bin space"
Pros: "Fr]iendlyt, efficient flight attendants"
Pros: "Some of the crew were excellent service wise"
Cons: "Some of the crew were less than what I would expect service wise"
Pros: "Very Innovative. Love the Premium Economy seats. And unlike many other airlines that do Premium Economy the food is not just economy food. It is far better and as good as anything you get in Business."
Cons: "The seat was not all that comfortable and being at the front of the section meant I couldn't stretch much. The breakfast was OK - nothing special"
Pros: "Air New Zealand provided the best service Iʻve had in a while!"
Pros: "The best ever business class check in and superior lounge and breakfast."
Pros: "Best airline I've ever traveled on. The staff was amazing! I felt well cared for and tended to. This airline is very attentive to detail. We took a Christmas Day flight and were told that the very slight turbulence was attributed to Santa landing on the plane. A few minutes later, St Nick made a little cameo to say hello to the children aboard! Loved it!!"
Pros: "We think Air New Zealand is by far the best airline we've ever flown on. Service, food, entertainment were all superlative"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight was non-eventful."
Cons: "I was "upgraded " to a seat facing a bulkhead, so leg room wasn't an issue. However, I missed the last half hour of my movie, because the screen had to be put back into the arm rest for landing."
Pros: "Service etc etc absolutely fine"
Cons: "Handling at Melbourne Tullamarine was poor. The plane landed on time but was sent to the wrong dock and that caused a lot of time wastage. This seems to happen in Australian airports more than anywhere else."
Cons: "Some of the crew were a bit pushy"
Pros: "Nothing. I wasn't able to board the flight, so I wouldn't know."
Cons: "The staff from Air NZ made me lose my flight, keeping me doing queue after queue to pay for a piece of luggage that (apparently) was not included in a $350 fare. They wanted me to pay between $160 and $200 for putting a backpack in the plane!! Pay for almost another flight entirely! While I was going through the queues, the check in time ran out and, by the time I got to talk to someone at the desk to pay for the bag, the woman told me the plane didn't accept any more passengers... while I was still trying to get someone from the airline to help me! ONE HOUR BEFORE DEPARTURE. The plane was supposed to departure at 8:15 and I was still there at 7:15 trying to send my backpack to the cargo area...the solution? Re-book the flight, make me pay $185 in penalties and fees, plus $160-$200 for luggage and the difference of price when booking another flight."
Pros: "The crew was courteous"
Cons: "Everything else, from the broken Monitor, to the awful food everything else was terrible"
Pros: "on time, clean, excellent crew."
Cons: "Please offer vegan options on your mainland flights. I know this is offered on international flights, so you are aware."
Pros: "Appreciate it was a direct flight. The crew was friendly. However on the return flight after my checked baggage with checked my electric Clippers were not return to buy bag. I wrote several emails and made several phone calls and received no response. I bought a replacement pair but they're not nearly as good. I'm very disappointed."
Cons: "Food was very poor. No snacks."
Cons: "For a six-hour flight on a non-budget airline, a breakfast sandwich and some small cookies did not make for a good in-flight meal. With the exception of the male chief flight attendant, who was very personable, I found that the rest of the flight attendants were indifferent to their passengers. On a good note: the chief CSA at PHX was an outstanding individual who made all passengers feel welcome on his airline as they waited to board the aircraft bound for Honolulu. Very rare to see that these days!"
Cons: "Need a better food choice"
Pros: "No delays whatsoever, we left almost on the dot. Friendly staff, decent snacks and good in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "flight was cancelled"
Cons: "almost missed my overseas connection"
Cons: "Food, leg room!"
Pros: "Entertainment choices good"
Cons: "Worst food offerings. Not enough food offerings for 10 hour plus flight. Poor entree quality for international flight."
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. BIG airplane; lots of seats, maybe too many but I had an aisle seat in an aisle in the middle that only had 3 seats so there was extra space next to me. Really appreciated that I was able to charge up my phone in the seat in front of me"
Cons: "A seat not so far back."
Pros: "Hawaiian's layout of the A330 is excellent. The seats (even in regular economy) are large and comfortable, with plenty of leg room. The flight attendants are genuinely friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment is pretty weak."
Cons: "As expected"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "my Husband said he felt cramped in the seats. He’s 6’2” and his knees nearly touched the seat in front of him."
Pros: "I liked the movie options and the constant attention with beverages and snacks"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Everything was great, easy going, aloha way."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, so never made it."
Cons: "The hot meal portion was too small. The sandwiches was tasteless."
Pros: "It was overall a good smooth process"
Cons: "Wish there would have been a little more leg room. Good thing I small and have short legs."
Pros: "I had a great flight with Hawaiian. Food was great Movies were ok- I slept mostly Staff were friendly & polite I would always fly with them to Hawaii"
Pros: "Most of the staff were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "There was a long line to the customer service counter. Another, employee just stood there and watched. I saw someone walk up to the employee that wasn’t doing anything and that employee turned around and walked away from him. Poor organization and customer service for a problem that required everyone’s teamwork. It just takes one bad apple."
Pros: "Free snack was good."
Cons: "15 minutes from midpoint between Hawaii and mainland plane turned 2 hrs back instead of continuing 2.5 hrs to Honolulu. Cancelled flight stuck 6 hrs in Oakland. Gate crew spent 4 hrs in near total confusion, no info provided. Direct 7 hr flight turned into 4 airports, 3 flight legs, taxi ride across San Francisco and 12 hrs late on another airline. Reason for diversion - dubious."
Cons: "Staff didn’t notify anyone of flight changes"
Pros: "Great intro to Hawaii for this first time visitor."
Pros: "I enjoy the comfort food as it was helpful to be a little before landing in Honolulu and trying out local food. Then the crew was great and can't complain there. Although it is perfect to fly to Honolulu direct without any layovers."
Cons: "I was a little disappointed in the entertainment as you wouldn't be able to watch things on your own and had to watch the videos with everyone else. And also when we landed in Honolulu, it was a little rough plus one of the overhead compartments came falling down and felt like there was a big turbulence or something. It was a little scary."
Pros: "crew was friendly and nice."
Cons: "plane is very outdated and for lack of a better word...junky."
Cons: "Horrible seats"
Pros: "The new lie-flat seats are wonderful, the crew was truly wonderful, ipads, toiletries, all woderful - HNL to SYD was not only painless but pleasant from start to finish."
Cons: "As a vegan, I wish there was actually a meal I could eat. Very disappointing to have to bring my own food on the flight... Seriously. The crew could not have been more empathetic but they're not creating the menus. Come on Hawaiian - charge me more, just acknowledge we don't all eat meat, cheese and eggs."
Pros: "Service, on time, and food"
Cons: "Entertainment, my seat headphone jack didn't work."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, lights were dimmed for rest cause of early flight and comfortable environment."
Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Rather rude flight attendants and gate agents. I had to wait a very long time to get my known traveler number in my boarding pass... they didn’t seem too know how to do it at first! Multiple times I was not given beverage service or trash pickup - like I was invisible in the horrible middle seat squished between two men. Awful!"
Cons: "no free media entertanment food was poor"
Pros: "Friendly and fast service, very good at what they do!"
Cons: "Offered lots of free beverages, employes are very courteous."
Pros: "crew was polite and nice."
Cons: "no wifi? Seriously?"
Pros: "Food and drinks."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and when asking questions about forms we needed to fill out, no one was willing to help or find answers."
Cons: "Temp was frigid. Many people cold. Ran out of blankets. UNACCEPTABLE."
Pros: "All the services were excellent!"
Pros: "We totally enjoyed your flight."
Cons: "Everything was oerfect"
Pros: "How accommodating the crew was. There was a two hour delay in the flight but the ticket people kept checking on the waiting passengers."
Cons: "No fault of the flight crew.... but the flight was long . Nothing can be changed on the length of the flight."
Pros: "Really can't beat Hawaiian for crew friendliness and on-time service."
Cons: "Really must provide an extra leg room section on a 6hour flight!!"
Cons: "2 hrs delayed. HA said they sent an email but I never received"
Cons: "I know the food is free but it is terrible even for airline food both the dinner and the breakfast. No entertainment at all is available so poad up your tablet or laptop for these long flights."
Cons: "The seats had lost there cushion and my lower back/tail bone was sore the rest of the day.."
Pros: "That they served breakfast."
Cons: "No free movie."
Pros: "Easy check in, affordable seat upgrades and excellent service and attention to detail. If the price is right, I will always fly Hawaiian to Hawaii or to California"
Pros: "Some staff were pretty rude and it was on both flights, which was surprising."
Pros: "The crew, as on most of my Hawaiian flights were very pleasant and accommodating. The seating on their airlines are generally very comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "I had selected an aisle seat when I booked the flight and was moved to a center seat without my knowledge. When I made this known to the attendant, she left to check to see if they could move me, later returned to tell me that because I was already seated they couldn't move me, though I had made it known to her prior to taking my seat. Most Hawaiian flights have in flight movies and power ports, this particular flight had neither."
Pros: "One small meal in 11 hours and no snacks offered. No bread rolls with the meal Everyone was hungry"
Cons: "I had to wait 3 hours for my interisland flight. That wasn't cool. But otherwise it was great"
Cons: "They fed us expired food. Expired ice cream and expired yogurt. They could not put my wife and me together and I believe that it violates a new law passed by Senator Chuck Shummer. It made it difficult for me to get her medicine to her. On a short flight it wouldn’t matter as much. But we had to endure it for 15 hours. They only fed us two meals instead of 3. Other airlines put a sticker in front of you if you slept through the meal time."
Pros: "This flight and seat was definitely more comfortable than going to HongKong- space was ver cramped before."
Cons: "Vegetarian meals can be better, breakfast eggs get over cooked and rice also."
Pros: "When do you need help they always happy Helping"
Cons: "The best"
Pros: "Entertainment system is nice with recent movies and many other selections."
Cons: "I found my pillowcase has a long human hair. And noticed the same in the other pillows around my seat. Also, the tray table has a few spots of food stain. One of the toilets, the hinge of the toilet seat is broken"
Cons: "not much choices in the movie selection"
Pros: "They serve Baileys. I had a treble and then slept for 8 hours."
Cons: "I was served by the sassiest member of cabin crew. I think he thinks he’s doing us a favour by giving us such luxuries as water and food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hrs, the additional delays st the arrival airport."
Pros: "I paid $190 for extra legroom for an economy seat by an exit door, however the remote for the entertainment screen encroached an inch on the already VERY narrow seats - I'm six foot three and 215 pounds and both hips were in full pressing contact against the sides of the seat - TOO NARROW!"
Cons: "Seats too narrow in Economy."
Pros: "The seats are old .. the plane is old .. the flight was delayed 2 hours, food even in first class lounge is not apetising the menu has been cut significantly.. lettuce and tomato say that they are not sourced from China .. must be from India as the quality sucks"
Cons: "On time is an expectation that if you travel from HK to BKK on CX that it is always delayed .. common knowledge for people in Thailand.. this is bad"
Pros: "We had a traumatic and abysmal experience for the trip. The flights were delayed, cancelled, wrongly rearranged and we had to run through the airports with no sleep, no food and no clear flight confirmations with minimal to no help from the Cathay Pacific staff."
Cons: "Helpful ground staff with information about next flight arrangements and better telephone helpline staff."
Pros: "The overall service is great for the airfare price I paid. Can’t complaint! That being said, I would definitely use Cathay Pacific again in the future for this price range."
Cons: "The smaller plane (and thus smaller seat) in the 2nd leg of 3+ hour flight. Food is OK, but I can’t complain for the price I paid."
Pros: "Though a long flight.. love flying with Cathay!! The crew was fabulous!"
Pros: "Good customer service."
Cons: "Could have used one more snack and more water although should have maybe asked. Dinner was good though."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "Passengers was good."
Cons: "Cathay pacific airlines is one of the most riches airlines in the world. I was expecting Excellent nutrition food but it was very bad. I didn’t eat it. Breakfast was good. I hope catha pacific airlines will change their food next time. TY USA"
Cons: "After my flight from Nanjing was delayed the next two flights to Sydney been overbooked and I was put on a flight to Melbourne to then go from there to Sydney. No Lounge access possible and no food vaucher offered. I had to ask to even get a small food vaucher. Bad!"
Pros: "Food is ok."
Cons: "Washrooms are small and dirty."
Cons: "Flight delay."
Cons: "it waa just too an old plane. too noisy. dusty. even air preasure was not controlled good enough"
Pros: "food was awesome. the seats were pretty comfortable. the in-flight crew were always so helpful and smiling. there was quite a collection of movies to choose from which is nice."
Cons: "The ground staff at the departure lounge were most of the time chatting or walking in circles and chatting. Also they were not as organized nor as accomodating than expected. Kinda shows a lesser level of professionalism than the crew in other countries."
Pros: "The crew is bilingual and they work and move fast"
Cons: "Flight CX882 Seat 59K the food tray does not stay up, food keeps sliding to the right. Both departing and returning flights ran out of free gifts as stated for the purchase of Laneige skin care products. Food selection is less desirable compared to other Asian airlines. Inside the crew food storage/service area looks old and dirty. I can see the area from my seat."
Pros: "On time Nice crew Good service"
Cons: "No in-flight WiFi was disappointing."
Pros: "Liked the bit more leg room, wish I had that plane on my San Francisco leg"
Cons: "I remember Cathay pacific having nice planes, but I guess things have changed. Plane, bathrooms, everything was downright dirty. Basically the only thing Cathay Pacific has going for it is direct LAX to HK, but that's it. I will try to avoid Cathay in the future"
Pros: "Two security checks, one at the door of the plane where they take bottles of water that have been purchased after passengers have passed through immigration and security make boarding very slow. There is no priority for Premium. The staff are efficient but service is basic. No sign of staff except when they are serving food. Seats are fine for a day flight. The food is very ordinary and some dishes were not available."
Cons: "Not a lot of choice in entertainment. Some programs have been on there for years. Premium economy is not worth the extra money."
Cons: "Food was worse no snacks at all"
Pros: "There was more leg room and the food was excellent!"
Pros: "excellent flight attendents"
Pros: "Enough space for legs, great VOD, good food, excellent service."
Cons: "Limited help in assisting passengers who missed the connection"
Cons: "International flight delayed after boarding the flight.Flight connection missed. Instead of providing the accommodation, passengers got boarded into flight to Los Angeles. Again another flight to Chicago which dropped the passengers in around midnight. Had to pick them from 4 hour distance from Chicago which was planned early. overall journey was more than 36 hours. No information to the passengers until last minute. Some passengers does know English."
Pros: "I will give 10 out of 10 to Cathay for their excellent service, fast air time, humble crew service and a bonus point for their quality of meals/ food. I am a pure vegetarian & in all my flight the crew made sure that I got the correct food tray & it was not mixed with wrong mean (non veg.) by mistake. Unlike other flight where meal is just an obligation, Cathay made sure that the taste was very nice too. Full points to them. The quality of seats was good & nice leg space as well. Overall the experiance was very pleasant & I highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Great seat size loads of leg space and lovely flight attendants"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment touch screen did not work properly. Staff had yo reset it a few times but it still didn't recognise touch most of time which was frustrating. The screen should be chaned or repaired. It was cold on the plane Departure was delayed but we did not get explanation"
Pros: "Great service of the crew"
Cons: "Seats are too narrow. There's not much to move around. I'm a 56 year old woman weigh 107 lbs., otherwise everything is great."
Pros: "I travel Canada-Australia a lot. Best trip so far."
Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, something was dripping on me by the end of the flight, could have been condensation? The passenger behind me had his shoes off the entire flight and put his feet in the space beside me near the window. His feet smelt like vinegar and sweaty socks. The passenger beside me was overweight and he spilled into my seat partially. All of this did not make for a comfortable flight but thankfully it wasn't too long."
Cons: "Veg meal and breakfast quality was not good. Delhi to hong Kong and from there to LA. Crew member service was not good for economy class."
Pros: "The extra space was nice, but expected as I paid for it."
Cons: "My wife's and my seats were sticky and difficult to recline. my headphone socket had lose fitting and neither the airline supplied headphone nor my Bose QC headphone were able to work constantly. The service from the two hosts was poor with very little to no engagement or pleasantries. I compare this with Premium Economy class flights with other airlines I have flown and I will elect not to fly Cathy Pacific again. I also found the food and the service below average. No option for wine on this flight, just red or white."
Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"
Pros: "Seats are comfort"
Cons: "Considering travelling on business class, there were no more dinner for 2 people after 1 hour of sleeping. I though dinner should be on held when people were sleeping in business class. In fact, I am wrong."
Pros: "Crew were super friendly. Food was pretty good for airline food."
Cons: "Bag drop in Melbourne was poor - it took close to an hour just to drop bags. Flight was very busy. While food/drink was good, it did take quite a while to be served."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific is a great airline - good and plentiful food and drink and the staff is ever so friently"
Pros: "The plane were nice and clean. most of the crew are very nice the entertainment are great so many different show that we can watch I like that they have noodle cup serving during the flight upon request in case passengers don't get hungry at the time they serve the main meals ."
Cons: "First of all The restroom are so tiny I just wish in the future that the airplan will have bigger restroom it though even 1 people to fit but I have kid and it though with baby ,toddler or overweight people. I usually travel with my son who's 3 I been flying many different airlines and I know in every airlines the most annoying is the tiny restroom I don't even want to go in there. 2nd of all Most of the cabin crew are very nice and very polite some aren't when you hit the service button you are expected someone that willing to help not the face like what the heck you want from me??? It's the long flight I understand and I'm exhausted too I just need to see someone willing to help and with a big smile not grumpy face. One last thing is the food. I'm not sure who's think about the menu for kids I'm not sure it is my son or the food But he never touch the food only thing he ate are the dinner roll I hope I can see some change for kid menu pick somethings that most kid like to eat maybe? Thank you Nadia M"
Pros: "crew members are friendly"
Pros: "The entertainment on the touch screen is pretty good. Economy seats are pretty good and have decent leg room."
Cons: "The world is turning to vegetarianism and I think that all flights should now have a veg and non-veg option by default and it should not be a necessary special meal as such. The Ovo-lacto meal that was given to my wife and I was OK compared to the actual vegetarian option that was present on the menu. The airline should inform passengers in advance that a certain leg of the journey would have vegetarian options."
Pros: "good service and good food all total was very good"
Cons: "Next time i will travel with your flight"
Pros: "Nice amenities, very efficient"
Cons: "Seats are too small, uncomfortable. We had a 50 minute delay in departure."

Cons: "too warm, hard to sleep"
Pros: "Was traveling with my 1yr old and my in-laws. Crew could not have made it a more comfortable journey."

Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "Crew was excellent! Very friendly and attentive - entertainment selection was great and the plane stayed nice and cool which is really helpful for a 15hr flight - no one needs 300 sweaty people for 15 its."
Cons: "That we were required to check our overhead bag because it weighed more than 15lbs. Meanwhile as we boarded nearly every passenger had an overhead bag that most certainly weighed more than 15lbs. Not sure what was going on there...also the seats are a little tight when reclined. Once the seat in front of me reclined back I had my knees in the back of the chair the entire flight and I am not a particularly tall person- made for a pretty uncomfortable 15hrs."

Pros: "Dood provided was good. Service was good. Baggage was fast."
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: "Friendly cabin attendants"

Pros: "Cleanliness, really courteous staff, comfortable seats, entertainment from an app :-)"
Pros: "We loved everything from check in to leaving the plane. They are a lovely bunch. Thank you, Qantas, for hiring wonderful staff members. We hope you treat them well."

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: "See above"
Cons: "Food on board from Syndey to Melbourne"
Pros: "Every person that works for this airline (that I came in contact with) was very helpful, extremely nice, and very supprtive."
Pros: "in flight experience - ability to preselect food. A380 is a great, quiet airplane."

The food is of the right portion .The crew is doing what they need to do for the passengers , quiet efficient , smile quite a lot thus making them feel more comfortable . The toilets are being kept clean . Keep it up !"
Pros: "entertainment system was excellent, very up to date. broad selection of movies and TV shows, good selection of music as well."
Cons: "seats were abysmal for a 15hr flight. These are similar to the intolerable seats and spacing for domestic (US) flights on legacy carriers (although, American is now radically changing seat dimensions and comfort on the 737-800). For a 6hr flight, it is not tolerable. For a 15hr non-stop flight, it is punishing. The Quantas A380-200 is no longer a new plane. The seat hardware is tired, lumpy, stiff, back-breaking. This could be improved by more space per seat, but it is not. I am 6'3" (189cm) and not at all fat (75kg), but the amount of seating space was tight. Again, this is an inconvenience for a short flight, and absolutely punishing on a long, 15hr, flight. It was not a cheap flight, and surely some updated seats can be put in, with fewer rows. By contrast, I flew back to US on Air New Zealand, and was entirely comfortable on a 12hr leg on very modern and spacious seats in the lowest economy class seat, on a 777 plane for a much cheaper fare."
Pros: "Good selection of movies to watch on my 14 hour flight. Seat was comfortable. Food was good and plentiful, staff members were great."
Cons: "It would be nice if food and drinks could be ordered via the tv screens. I tried to upgrade to business class but the qantas website kept giving me an account creation error message and would allow me to create it. When I got to the airport and asked the attendant he said it was too late to do it in person and I should have done it the day before. He was actually very nice, but it was frustrating that I tried to do it as far as a week early but was not able to because the website. I was still comfortable in the seat I was in but would have felt better if I even had a chance at upgrading."
Pros: "It was the first time I have flown internationally and not gone through immigration when leaving the US. So was fast. The transfer on the bus was good."
Cons: "Qantas needs some better salty snacks to nibble on, those soy crackers are like cat food. The transfer on the bus was not well marked or communicated to passengers. we were lucky to stumble onto it"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Loved it all. Thanks for helping me get home to Australia when other airlines couldn't."

Pros: "The food that was served was good. The crew was attentive and nice ."

Cons: "Overall the flight was good. It would be nice to see if we are Lincoln and Wi-Fi and the greatest selection of movies to its offerings."

Pros: "nothing other than on time departure Ann's arrival"
Cons: "I specifically shopped carriers other than delta or united, tho my regret usa carriers have stopped offering comforts, service, quality food. Not sure how, but even though I bought virgin Australia ticket and flight, I ended up on delta. Terrible sitting, even though after I paid for tickets I was charged extra for more leg room and priority boarding, I got neither, they advertised free texts in flight, it didn't work either."

Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Pros: "Crew was stellar, very accommodating."
Cons: "Food was WAAAAY to salty. Needs some more flavor than just salt sad to say. Would be nice to be offered an entire can of soda not just a cup full of ice and a tiny amount of liquid. Charging for exit row swats? Cmon.... I'm 6 foot 5, why should a 5 foot 115lb woman get all the extra leg room but I canot?"
Pros: "We travelled Economy comfort which has extra leg room & recline, which is great for a long flight such as this. Food was ok, crew were great & there was a lot of good entertainment to watch? A nice smooth ride down to Sydney."
Cons: "Food wasn't so great & coffee as with most Airlines is terrible."
Pros: "One of the male flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "No food was provided, there was a throw up stain on my first flight to Atlanta then on my connecting flight there was crumbs on my table, my boyfriends table did not want to close so that caused discomfort to the person in front of us. Boarding time took a very very long time"
Pros: "We had originally booked seats that were not together but we're able to change them at the gate. We sat in the last row of the 777 which only had 2 seats on either side of the plane rather than the standard 3. The seats still reclined tho not as much as the other rows. Food was free and excellent- so was the entertainment (I watched 4 movies on the 14 hour flight). Crew was great. Alcoholic beverages were also free but we don't drink so it didn't matter."
Cons: "The flight from phx to lax was ok but it was a small plane (CRJ700) and we're big people. No amenities whatsoever except for soft drinks, juices and peanuts. Flight was on time and made the connection with time to spare."

Pros: "I thought the seats were pretty decent."
Cons: "I was not able to checkin online"
