Pros: "Great crew, great entertainment"
Cons: "Wasn't a fan of the dinner but no big deal"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Packed flight so hard to stretch out, not much food or water but it was a red eye so lots of people were sleeping"
Pros: "Air NZ is fantastic"
Pros: "Over all the flight was excellent. My previous flight with them was terrible but this flight was awesome. It was great that there was a headphone jack in the entertainment system so you could take your own better headphones. Only issue is that when you are taking off or landing you aren't allowed to have a cable between your seat and screen so you will have to resort to using the supplied ones plugged into armrest if you want to continue to listen to movies or audio."
Cons: "When playing videos on the entertainment system there was a glitch that made the movie play from the start when paused. This also happened for my wife. Also the displays no longer tilt so when the passenger in front reclines their seat your display is on a terrible angle."
Cons: "Poor movie selection"
Pros: "The foot rest helped but did not come up as high as in the video so had trouble with my knees. If it had been level with the seat I could have slept."
Pros: "The reclining seat pitch and space by feet and under seat was great. Staff was nice."
Cons: "The food was so awful. I could t eat the chicken only the plain rice. Please just provide more plain food not heavily seasoned. Bread meat starch and veggies would be perfect. The headphone speaker volume contrast between hearing the tv and when the pilot chimed in. It blew out my eardrums every time! The soap dispenser shot out all over me and made a mess."
Cons: "Air new Zealand should upgrade their Business class. Seats are old, like 15 years ago airlines. Video old style, air show did not work during entire flight. Cabin crew said they can reset it but not sure it's going to work. Food was OK. Air Tahiti Nui offers a better service between PPT & AKL"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Entertainment was great! Comfort was decent but much better that the previous flight with Air Canada. The overall the feeling that I get from Air NZ and their employees is that they have FUN! It's infectious and makes for a great flight experience."
Pros: "liked free movies"
Pros: "Better air on 787 Decent legroom Comfy seats Good food and wine"
Cons: "Legroom can be better"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional, the on board entertainment was fantastic, and you could order snacks and drinks from your seat at any time."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped, extra narrow and almost no leg room. With aflight this long it go rather painful. The upsideit that I was able to distract myself with the provided snacks, drinks, and movies."
Cons: "This was ok"
Pros: "Skycouch Food Wine"
Cons: "Legroom can be better, even though it was good"
Pros: "Smooth flight except turbulent at times"
Pros: "It was a direct flight to Vancouver which was great in that I didn't have to change planes."
Cons: "I felt claustrophobic as if a was in a can of sardines, but to my relief I found a light sleeping pill in my handbag and was able to feel relaxed. I am not overweight but felt it was very difficult to reach for my handbag on the floor. As I said, in all seriousness, there was not an inch of space to move without saying excuse me to the person beside me. I must add that whoever made the rules for seating space between the rows on the aircraft must have been paid off heavily. The flight attendants were great."
Pros: "The crew was incredible ! And the entertainment options as well"
Cons: "Space was so tiny ! Couldn't get comfortable and usually never have a problem sleeping on planes."
