Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Entire crew members, food, drink, hospitality & aircraft."
Cons: "I am diabetic & would have been better if I could get a aisle seat as I requested otherwise I didn’t have to wake up too often my both side passengers!! We were few Indian passengers missing our Hindi movies..."
Cons: "Seat was tight and uncomfortable. Good was typical airplane food, adequate, not great."
Pros: "Their friendliness And care for the passengers"
Cons: "i can not think of anything."
Cons: "12:05 am flight back to Lax is good because you can sleep a little then be awake for a good period of time before and after landing which helps promote getting back to normal sooner. Flight got a little chilly whole is was sleeping but otherwise a very good flight."
Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."
Pros: "Outstanding service as always - ANA rocks!"

Cons: "Coming from Kulalampur to Japan I missed flight from Japan to Chicago Ground crew refused to rebook me to next flight and then argument only booked up to Chicago and I had to call USA and my daughter to help There should be ground crew at gate for people who has short time to catch to facilitate There was no body and I was couple mts late In international flights they should rebook and give hotel I was traveling business class Poor in help Comfort and flight was ok Food not much choices"
Pros: "Everything.. the crew was so gracious and kind even tho the delay was out their control. they even gave us 30,000 Yen or $260 approximately, which they didn’t have to do. i will start flyin ANA... not because of the money, but because of the delay... which no American carrier would have done and would’ve given excuse after excuse."
Cons: "Lack of airline professional staff at lax airport. There's no set person in charge. We had an emergency return and no one can explain or give us answers for rebooking our flights."

Pros: "The leg space of the plane"
Cons: "Some crew hard to understand they English"
Pros: "The ANA crew were very sweet and accommodating"
Cons: "Very unhappy over the first leg. Nothing indicated it was a United Airline flight to be boarded at United Airline terminal in LAX. Seat selected at time of booking was not honored since selection has to be done on United Air's web site. Did not get the meal I ordered for the same reason. Very short time to get from arrival gate to the connecting gate at Haneda."
Pros: "I've flown with ANA before and they never fail to impress. Service is impecable, staff are nice and the new boeings are awesome. Seats can be a bit cramped but we were in economy and it's a 9 hour flight so some discomfort is expected. The 3 meals served are complimentary and very much appreciated. The entertainment system is an easy to use touch screen with great options from Hollywood and other movie sources."

Pros: "Young, pretty, and charming stewardesses. :-)"
Pros: "Great seats in business class. Lots of privacy. Great service as well."
Cons: "American style Food could have been better. Didn't try the Japanese food."
Pros: "Onbaord Crew hospitality"
Cons: "Poor ground handling by narita staff. By bus from terminal to plane. Mixed with economy pasaangers. Chaos from bus to plane. All passangers exposed to freezing cold weather at narita aiport outdoor."
Cons: "The lack of legroom in economy class is a serious problem on long flights. I am only 6' tall/145 pounds, Window and middle seats are are not an option for me. This fact Is a strong disincentive to travel (no, I am not willing to pay the upcharge for the minimal legroom increase, i.e. to make that charge worth paying considerably more room would have to be provided."
Pros: "Great crew and counter staffing. Only took about 10 minutes to get my ticket and half of that was due to some snag with the NZ visa details."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Their plane"
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Pros: "Wonderful crew, excellent food, very comfortable!"
Cons: "Generally ok for econ"
Pros: "Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated."
Cons: "The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland."
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"
Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"
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: "Decent meals, complimentary drinks including alcohol, more room between seats than some carriers"
Cons: "Seats are not as well padded as some carriers which becomes important on long flights. Heathrow gates are very long distances for anyone with mobility issues and switching terminals is confusing if not done regularly. Onboard staff was helpful. On board entertainment was free and varied. No WiFi?"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"
Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."
Pros: "No bags on an international flight?! I had to pay $375 for 3 bags. Last minute changes with a layover, instead of a 3 hr flight it was a 6 hr flight and NO FOOD not even available to purchase.... very confusing very disappointed...."
Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."
Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."
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."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "The plane the staff"
Pros: "there were extra blankets."
Cons: "Cold air blasting for 8 hours."
Pros: "We fly a lot and have flown American, European, Asian airlines but this has to be the best experienxe ever. First, their checkin is all automated, even baggage. That makes the lines really short. Their staff standing by to help at every moment. When we used another airline in Australia Jetstar, we waited in line for one hour and then were scolded for being late! We even had to pay for our water and the staff took turn scolding us over our overhead bin stuff. Boarding of NZ airline was so comfortable, without pushing or crowds. Staff always welcoming you with a smile. Seats are wide and we were given free drinks, free headohones, and wait for it.... free dinner! And all served so politey and in the most gracious manner as if we were their guests. We were so taken back by their service and this was the aecond time we have flown with them in 10 days. My young daughter thought may be their staff gets paid more so they seem to be so much more happy. I also think that there is something when you dehumanize your customers by charging them for water and being uncaring to their needs. The staff also starts to treat the customers as cattle. Besides Southwest Airlines, I havent come across one another airline where the staff treat their custmoers with reapect while charging them for water. So airlines, take note. I would pay $50 per ticket extra just to be in NZ airline."
Pros: "Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable."
Cons: "Would have liked in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Check In Issues related to code share flight"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"
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: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Pros: "Friendly, polite helpful"
Pros: "We flew Air Canada’s Economy Plus from Vancouver to Sydney and Air New Zealand’s Economy Plus from Auckland back to Vancouver. NZ’s Economy Plus product is far and above AC’s. Everything from the welcome, to the meal, to the level of service is great. I really felt that NZ treated the Econ Plus cabin as distinct from Economy (including having 2 dedicated washrooms), whereas on AC it felt like we were merely Economy with better seats. I compare NZ and AC because we were so genuinely impressed with what we purchased. We would definitely book NZ Econ Plus again, and the January seat sale is a great time to do so!"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. NZ gets this product right."
Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"
Pros: "As has been my prior experience with Air New Zealand, I found the trip to be virtually flawless. The boarding process was smooth and efficient, the crew was great and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job, the food was good, and I had lots of choices on the IFE system. For flying cattle class on a 15 hour flight, I arrived reasonably rested and content."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the extra $60 I had to pay in order to get a window seat got me just that. There was no additional room either length- or width-wise and no other advantages other than the window. I would not pay for that "privilege" again and I'm sorry to see that ANZ has stooped to the level of its American counterparts."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment Good ground staff at Auckland check in Hospitable cabin crew Food was palatable"
Cons: "Although I had mistakenly arrived many hours early for my flight and traveled with the airline back and forth across the Pacific, ANZ personnel would not admit me to their lounge to wait in relative comfort."
Pros: "On time, great customer service, the in flight entertainment is amazing! Even the food tastes good! Seats were comfortable, toilets and plane were clean, all around amazing."
Cons: "Nothing, it was perfect."
Pros: "The plane and staff were very welcoming."
Cons: "The connection was very tight. Luggage was lost, but was sent to us the same day. It was left in Auckland,accidentally."
Pros: "Customer service and Food was excellent!"
Pros: "Crew are good, TV shows are included"
Cons: "Charging for movies seems a bit too low cost!"
Pros: "Love the variety of movies etc available on every flight."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "It was okay, we made it to Sydney safe and sound, but I'd expect that anyway. We had works deluxe seats. Food was terrible service was on par with the terrible American carriers. The very first New Zealand air flight apparently set the bar too high. It was fantastic! The other 3 were nothing in comparison."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."
Pros: "I had read quite a bit of negatively but although I have had better service and more comfort it was better than I had herd it would be. The in seat entertainment system was better than any I had experienced."
Cons: "For the most part the crew was very nice. But the attendant we had lacked some professionalism and seemed very tired. We didn't always get what we asked for as well with no explanation why."
Pros: "Awesome crew! Tasty food! Comfy seats!"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."
Pros: "Loved the new planes"
Cons: "Too bright in the cabin, the pink lights were a little hard on the eyes"
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."
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."
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: "Everything was fantastic"
Cons: "the in flight entertainment. Screens kept turning off randomly, No wifi..."
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: "The crew of Hawaiian Airlines was outstanding. The boarding process was smooth and efficient. There was adequate space to store baggage, seating was comfortable, entertainment was outstanding, food and refreshments were fantastic."
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: "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"
Pros: "Love the cocktail... seriously awesome!"
Cons: "Where did the awesome meal go?!?!?"
Pros: "I enjoyed the spacious seats and love how each seat reclines 10% more than usual. Also the iPad rentals are a great idea for such a long flight."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a good experience."
Cons: "From the check in, to the food and cabin experience is worsened by far. Check in - no check in line for premium passengers.( really bad experience) Cabin crews could not separate passengers from other cabin consisting using lavatory there fore passengers constantly walk back and forward. (It’s really unpleasant) It’s. Not worth the money to paid for the experience and services."
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: "Better room in leg and width. Hotter food and tastier."
Pros: "Everything was excellent, crew, seat, food"
Cons: "The person on duty at the desk of the lounge in Johannesburg was very unfriendly and even rude."
Cons: "Need to have wifi on all their flights"
Pros: "Very professional and attentive"
Pros: "Loved the crew, very helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Food could be better. No goodies like toothbrush or paste or sleep mask, but this is minor. Website is really bad and hard to check-in online. They could really simplify the website and allow folks to add their favorite miles in there. just so complicated to do anything on the website."
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "Nothing dpecific"
Pros: "Actual plane was in good condition and as comfortable as a plane can be. Very good selection of in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude and made you feel that you were bothering them. Beverage offered twice in 15 1/2 hours. Beverages when available if you want to ask the flight attendant, but again, they were definitely put out when you asked them. Caroline wasn’t kept clean throughout the 15 1/2 hours- i’m accustomed to light attendance walking through the isles periodically to get customers garbage regular league so that it doesn’t build up."
Cons: "Nice flight nice"
Pros: "The headline says it all!"
Pros: "Boeing 777 had an upgrade on the video display software, making for a more manageable video experience. It's easier to navigate because of the ability to close screens and go back to the screen you were on, rather than having to start over each time."
Cons: "I received a polite e-mail and a text message an hour or two later indicating that my flight from Taipei to HongKong had been delayed. It took a login to the Cathay Pacific web site to figure out that with the rescheduled time, I would miss my connecting flight from HongKong to Boston if I didn't change anything. I managed to sort it out, though it took using my cell phone to place an international call to the HongKong Cathay Pacific office to get me on an earlier flight. I don't think this is an acceptable level of service -- had I not had WiFi access or an international capable cell phone, I would have been stranded in Taipei or HongKong an extra day. I think CP could have done more to notify and help remediate the situation knowing the implication of the rescheduled flight. Food also remains mediocre, though slightly better."
Pros: "I traveled economy coming home and was delighted by the amenities that you never see on commercial airlines anymore. On the way to New York I upgraded to premium economy, This was such a nice experience. It was worth the up charge. And two free checked bags? That is unheard of anymore"
Cons: "When I was on the upgraded ticket, I was actually disappointed that we landed early because I was sleeping so well."
Pros: "The food are great."
Cons: "Bathrooms are not as clean."
Pros: "Upgraded to business"
Cons: "Plane was old and not Super comfortable. Also no WiFi!"
Pros: "Great food (probably the best I’ve had on a flight) and a fairly good in flight entertainment."
Cons: "The crew was good , but I observed that one aisle got a follow up of drinks more than my aisle. It made me wish that I was sitting in that aisle."
Pros: "Seats had good headrests with adjustable "wings" to cradle head while sleeping. USB plug below entertainment screen."
Cons: "A good half the plane was first class and business class. (This was a 15 hour Hong King to Boston flight.) They handed out a fancy menu with 4 entrees but by the time they got to economy only pasta was left. We did at least get a small bottle of water; on our outgoing flight they doled it out in meager glasses. When boarding in Hong Kong we had to go through an additional security check between the gate and the plane (that was a first...) and had our water bottles confiscated. So we were reliant on what they would give us on the plane. Seats were tight, unlike some airlines that give you a little extra room. Wouldn't fly again unless their price was a real bargain."
Cons: "Flight to Hongkong arrived late in Hongkong hence had to stay extra 31/2 hours in Honking to wait for the next flight to New York!"
Cons: "Bulk head seats. People walked over me all night including staff"
Pros: "no trouble at all"
Cons: "would like more vegetarian food options on the flight. i didn't think to order ahead but it would have been nice if the food choices had offered more options."
Pros: "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
Cons: "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."
Pros: "The flight attendants we're so kind and polite. They worked very hard to be helpful to everyone on the plane."
Cons: "it waa just too an old plane. too noisy. dusty. even air preasure was not controlled good enough"
Pros: "Kind staff, decent food"
Cons: "Ridiculous baggage policy! Only 30 kg total baggage allowance when ALL OTHER AIRLINES ALLOW AT LEAST 40KG, AND MOST ALLOW 46KG! WHY IS CATHAY SO STINGY?!"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. There was a lot of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Not enough padding on the seats for long distance travel. Not enough leg room. Not enough baggage bin over top of your seat people from other seats put their luggage on your overhead bins."
Pros: "Flight was delayed Made connection just in time"
Pros: "The entertainment is in regards to the movie choices that I had. I wish my screen was a little bigger."
Cons: "My flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong was cancelled due to a problem with the plane. I stood in line for 2 and a half hours at the airport only to have them tell me this. There was not visible sense of urgency on part of the staff at Cathay Pacific and they did not seem to have a contingency plan to deal with such a situation. I especially felt sorry for some of the elderly people who were also in line all that time with noting to drink and no place to sit."
Cons: "Less choices of movies"
Cons: "Not being able to select seats online prior to traveling"
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."
Cons: "Plane was very very warm"
Pros: "On time performance"
Pros: "Went up and down as planned."
Cons: "Late departure due to storms results in late arrival. Seat didn't work as expected. USB charger didn't work and interfered with the headset."
Pros: "Happy to have goodnight on the flight. Was scared to fly on such a long flight because I'm a decent sized guy. I was even more afraid when I realized I was out in a middle seat. However, the seats are relatively spacious, even in economy and my knees weren't hitting the back of the seat in front of me. I also appreciated that we could get up to grab water or juice at any time during the flight."
Cons: "Boarding could be more organized."
Pros: "I travel Canada-Australia a lot. Best trip so far."
Pros: "I do the Canada-Australia trip fairly often to see my family, and Cathay-Pacific is my new fave. Cheaper than the usual, no problematic stops in the US and everything went perfectly smoothly. Thanks for looking after me!"
Pros: "The crew and staff were generally friendly and the food was fine."
Cons: "For the first time in thirteen years traveling with my guitar, I was forced to check in my guitar, potentially in violation of the US Department of Transportation's rule on musical instruments. While my guitar thankfully arrived in good condition, this caused an unnecessary amount of stress in my 24 total hours of travel. I'd highly advise Cathay Pacific to revise their inflexible stance towards musical instruments, as many passengers brought carry-on bags which were much larger than my guitar in its case."
Pros: "The seat in the economy is very comfortable. The cabin is very clean."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable! Cabin crew are not friendly, service sucks! Very dirty cabin. Very noisy because of crying children everywhere!"
Pros: "GOOD !!!"

Cons: "The crew kept waking me up and were rude."
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: "Nice service!"
Cons: "I had a flight from ZHR to HKG and further with another Airline to Shanghai. After 8 hours delay, I was not rebooked to another flight to Shanghai. Reason: We are only responsible to bring you to HKG - not further. Thanks a lot"
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed. The food was good. The Moon Cake provided to help us celebrate, even though we were traveling, was an added example of why Cathay Pacific is the standard that everyone else is trying to emulate in Tourist class. The L.A.-based cabin crew provided outstanding service throughout the flight. The in-flight service manager made me believe she cared about the quality of the service in the back, which was outstanding. It was as good as a full, 13-hour flight could be. Even the in-seat entertainment was outstanding and reliable."
Cons: "The boarding process in Hong Kong was terrible. It was absolute chaos. If it had not been for then complete turn around after we were on the plane, it would have been the beginning of the flight from hell."
Pros: "good experience."
Pros: "I actually changed my flight date"
Cons: "I was charged almost three times the amount by the airline than I agreed to pay and what was listed in Kayak.I was charged almost three times the amount by the airline than I agreed to pay and what was listed in Kayak."

Cons: "More leg room."
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."
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: "Expected more, newer plane, champagne was good."

Pros: "The crew, food and the entertainment were great."
Cons: "I booked for a window seat but I ended sitting on the aisle. I will double check the seating on my return flight so it won't happen again."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Trouble with iPad service."
Cons: "Disembarking.... No gate so had to get bus to shuttle to terminal... 1 bus for nearly 1000 passengers.... Took nearly 90 minutes to get off plane."
Pros: "The staff were polite and they took care of us well."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled the first night and then was also cancelled the next night I just happened to have been moved to an earlier flight so I didn't get stuck there the second day."

Cons: "went i couldn't use my Qantas membership to access Melbourne lounge"
Pros: "On time. Smooth ride. Shorter than expected. Great service."
Cons: "Headset broken on entertainment system. Ancient hardware. Food. Meh."
Pros: "food and service"
Cons: "I'm 6'4"... no legroom in economy"
Pros: "I liked the fact that there was a water refilling station so I could get water when I needed/wanted it. The people were friendly and there were lots of times when the lights remained off so that people could sleep. There weren't a lot of interruptions during the flight so people could rest or do what they wanted! I also like that Quantas is associated with American so I got a ton of miles!"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't stay upright so any movement made it go back, which was fine for resting but when eating or sitting up, I kept falling back. Luckily the person behind me was understanding."
Cons: "You charged me twice in my credit card the Ticket from Adelaide -Melbourne and Melbourne-Sydney"
Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."

Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
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: "Flgiht attendants and airline presentation and friendliness"
Cons: "The last time i flew was in 1999 when i was single and traveling NZ and Australia. This time i was taking my family. I had boasted to my fam that Quantas (was famous in my memory) as having economy seats that felt more like other airlines Business Seats. My kids were eager to experience the "Quantas" seats. I was severely dissapointed to find that your economy seats, now, are even smaller than the Chinese seats we regularly fly (we are in our 5th year of ex-pat assignment in China). You should have seen the look on my kids faces. Evidently, i must have "talked Quantas up too much", because there was a great deal of dissapointment. We will travel back to NZ and Aus., this fall, but will no longer prioritize Quantas as our airline of choise. I guess times change, and a little bit of nastalgia lost.... :("
Pros: "offer every passenger a iPad mini"
Cons: "Poor landing, not confortable from decending to touch down"
Pros: "Nothing because they did not allow us to take the flight. We had to buy new sets of tickets."
Cons: "They did not do their best to help us talk to the Australian embassy to allow us to re enter Sydney even as transit passengers just to be able to take our flight with Philippine airlines early the next morning. I know we made a mistake of getting flight to Manila in Sydney. We should have just gotten flight from Auckland instead but it was an honest mistake. They should have just allowed us since we know it's possible. We spent 14, 000NZ additional for that mistake."
Pros: "Boarding was quick on-time, and organized and we landed early in Sydney. We were lucky to have an extra economy seat for our 14 hour flight. Needless to say, we were comfortable throughout the entire time. The flight attendants were extremely friendly and happy. I loved how they closed the entire cabin down (windows closed and lights off) so that we could all sleep. All in all it was a very pleasant flight. We'll definitely fly Qantas again."
Cons: "The food was very average, but we don't count on good food in economy, so we weren't disappointed. My entertainment mechanism wasn't working correctly and I was unable to access TV or movies for most of the flight but it looked like everyone else was enjoying their entertainment."
Pros: "Our American Airlines portion of the flight to Dallas Fortworth was late. Qantas had someone at the gate looking for us to tell us where to go and to call ahead to say we were coming. The flight was a long overnight one, but the crew made it as pleasant as was possible. We were served a meal and offered drinks and snacks throughout the night."
Pros: "Nothing. Have used qantas for 20 years...this is the last time."
Cons: "I showed up 1 hour and 20 minutes before my flight. An American agent told me I had to go to the kiosk. The kiosk told me I had to go to the counter. An American agent said I had plenty of time to check a bag, beingnup until 45 minutes before and would not help me. When I got to the counter, it was 1 hour before and they said I was too late to check my bag and since I had a bag, they would not give me a boarding pass. They were awful to me and so unhelpful. I will never use this airline or a sister airline again."
Pros: "Quantas was great"
Cons: "Bravo fly scammed me - booked & charged 3 tickets for one passenger!"
Pros: "The food was reminiscent of the way many airlines used to treat their customers that added dignity to flying"
Cons: "Rather than leaving at noon, we had a 12 hours late caused us to have to overnight on the plane"
Pros: "On time, as comfortable as most for economy. good crew."
Cons: "On flight bwi to dallas dec 27, loaded us, 2 hr wait in plane on tarmac, then cancelled due to storms and too many planes in dallas on ground. Removed all of us from plane to rebook, a nightmare. Then proceeded to immediately reboard next flight of passengers on same plane to same destination and take off. Return flight booked all at once, Sydney to dallas to bwi. Sydney flight late, gave us special red easy pass envelope with boarding pass to connect to dallas-bwi flight. We had to wait for luggage, then in line for customs, and another line for re checking luggage, then walk to next gate and another security line, and flight left without us. Easy pass did nothing for us. Missed flight by 5 min. Gave us the impression when we got off sydney flight they were going to wait for us. Waited 45 min for luggage, 20 min for customs and 10 min for security. If we had any special treatment at any stage we would have made our connection. Worst experience with American Airlines ever."
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight and was put up in a cheap nasty hotel. This delay resulted in being redirected to LAX where we had to wait over 8 hours at the airport for our flight. When we finally landed in Sydney my wife's luggage was missing they discovered that it was left behind in Dallas. The airline later told me after I called back to check the status her bag did make it on a later flight only to discover that they were wrong. No bag as of yet, our entire vacation has been a disaster."
Cons: "I went to the counter to check in 1 hour before the flight (at around 6am), and the counter has already closed. The lady at the counter said that we had to check in at least 3 hours before the flight, which is a lie. I asked if there is anything she can help re-schedule, and she simple refused to help in anyway. I am very disappointed on the service of Quanta airline."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The food offering was quite good!"
Cons: "The seats were very cramped on my flight from jfk to lax. Good thing I paid for the extra legroom for the flight from lax to Sydney that was worth it especially for that 14 hrs. flight."
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "Phenomenal customer service from every staff member. The captain kept everyone informed of the flights progress very routinely. Quiet environment promoted for sleeping during the late night."
Pros: "Friendly service Safety record"
Cons: "Extremely late take off from JFK to Lax and lAx to Sydney we were never told why? Food choices for kids need improvement"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "I was made to feel welcome."
Cons: "Old aircraft with seats in very bad conditions."
Cons: "Flight was a series of late take offs, the food was really bad, people are so crammed in there is no space to even move around, one entire area was blocked with people's stuff which led to exit doors and this is not safe....time to demand airlines provide decent space to at least be able to cross ones legs, can't even do that anymore"
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful. Very professional and tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "Since we missed our connection and got booked on another flight, we didn't get the seats we paid for. Qantas charges to book your seats early which we paid but now they don't want to give us a refund."
Cons: "Plane arrived delayed.."
