Everything is superb in these flight and the only thing I would like to suggest is … it is too expensive to fly. Please find a way to make them affordable.
Very, wry kind, helpful and polite.
My trip was very good on Japan Airlines. I used the wheelchair service and everyone was very helpful! The food was a step down from what I experienced before when a Japanese choice was offered.
Excellent except for food
Trash they booked a flight that was non existent had to call credit card company for chargeback. Do not fly with them or book through kayak they will cancel ur flight without notification
I got scammed. The flight I booked did not exist. The flight was suspended more than a month ago & I did not get any notices or e-mails. When I arrived the airport there is no flight, no people working. I'm trying to get a refund, but they said they are not sure I can get full refund. I booked the partnered-agent called Chatdeal. You guys need to drop these people from listing on Kayak, they are completely scammers.
They gave me the seat next to a very large person!!!
It was good, better than most US airlines.
The cabin is SO HOT. Made the entire trip obscenely uncomfortable. They also only turn down the lights for 4h of the 9h flight, making is very difficult to sleep. Also, kayak and JAL wouldn’t let me change my flight, which was incredibly frustrating! JAL has a very nice on board crew.
I like the airlines but because I used to fly with Japan airlines.this time not much entertainment and delayed flights and not comfortable compare to my previous flight. Food is not good. Flight attendant are confuse. I had to help other rider because they skip to serve him food.Over all is not Japan airlines that I used to ride.
Great flight. everything was good but food. Pasta for breakfast. Beef flavor dish(not much beef to be found) with rice and couple of small salads.
Again, lots of space, bug seats, plenty of legroom -served me dinner after I slept through the meal service.
Overall, very good trip. I would definitely fly with Japan Airlines again. Food choices are Japanese-centric, flying back to Los Angeles after being in Asia two weeks, something different would have been nice. But overall, very good.

Cons: "The food was not very good, the airplane was empty, but assigned seats to fill rows while spouting nonsense about social distancing"

Cons: "The food was a little bland, but that is nit picking. For airline food, it was very good."
Cons: "Connection time at Narita is too long"
Pros: "Bad handling and organization by JAL ground management. There was no support at the gate or clear leadership or direction of what needed to happen or what was to be done for the passengers They dumped everything in the Malaysian ground agents to handle without clear direction. Very poor service and no accountability"

Pros: "Spacious leg room."
Cons: "The food is average. Could be much better. Eg, serve eggs like omelette for Breakfast. Only one choice . The other choice could be Jap menu vi differing it’s s Japanese airline. Flew JAL 2 yrs ago too. Food was not good. Also , toilets could be cleaner. There’s always a pungent smell."

Cons: "Nothing to complain about here. Both trips to Tokyo, Japan--to and from Japan have been enjoyable and drama free."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours!! No info was given why until we got on the plane. We did not know if the flight was going to get cancelled and if we need to make other arrangements."

Would love to fly them again any chance I get! Probably the best flight experience I've ever had."

Cons: "Selection of video entertainment could be increased and improved."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and pleasant. They were very accommodating as well."
Cons: "For my entire flight back I was so hot I could hardly stand it. I had to change my clothes and it still didn't help very much. My meals were also pretty bad on the way back, which is odd because they were not bad on the way there. It was definitely one of the worst flights that I've ever had, mostly because of the heat."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the seats were really comfortable"
Cons: "The food choice was a bit poor"
Pros: "Since I had back pain,I really like that I could checked in two luggages. Thank you so much!!"
Pros: "Soft chair."
Cons: "The stewardess was been chatting with the passenger the whole time and she called everyone a "darling." You have to pay for your snack and there are no entetainment. But like I said...I don't care because it's only a short flight. What I care is the flight being delayed."
We flew from Singapore to the US, the first leg was Korean air. The second was Delta. There is quite a difference. We really preferred Korean air.
Seat comfort and food selection!
I have never ever experienced such a smooth flight quite like this since I have been flying to a lot of places in the world. Korean Air deserves to vote for the best airline among the best of the best.
There was nothing what I like about Delta. I was trying to purchase tickets with Korean Air but it was operated by Delta. There was just one thing that just learned from this experience is I won’t flight Delta. Horrible service
everything was better than US carriers.
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Missing snacks"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the cheerful and helpful crew. And i love that the gate agent gave me a seat up front, near the front of the plane because she knew that i had a short connection and needed to catch my next flight."
Pros: "Great flight attendants left me alone to sleep."
Cons: "Korean Air cabins always seem a little warn to me by about five degrees."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and attentive as always."
Cons: "An upgrade for more comfortable and ergonomic seats would make a lot of difference...."
Cons: "Taking care more about suitcases customers"
Pros: "The flight was shared with Delta airlines on a Delta plane, terrible arrangements. Small seats, poor service, poor entertainment, very bad experience."
Cons: "It could have been better if it was a Korean Air flight."
Pros: "Professionalism, appearance, flight attendants, provided slippers and toothbrush, seat space, great food and drinks"
Cons: "The movie selection was small and a bit outdated"
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were not offered so I can’t rate them."
Cons: "Good that have a night in the hotel to stretch and a good night sleep and a proper meal, and are all included within the ticket."
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "Toilet floor was wet and dirty."
Pros: "Everything except switching flights in Seoul."
Cons: "We landed as scheduled at 5:10pm, but my next flight was scheduled to board at 5:55pm. You have to go (you should know this since it’s the country you’re based out of) a second security check in Seoul, so by the time I actually got out of security it was 5:55pm and my flight was already boarding. I had to run to my next flight and I barley made it. Showing up to my flight a sweaty mess after what felt like a mile run was not a highlight of my experience with Korean air. You guys seriously need to do some reconfiguring of your flights..."
Pros: "Food. Entertainment system."
Pros: "Good food!"
Cons: "I dont know"
Pros: "Disclaimer: we flew business class. Regardless, our check-in was seamless, Incheon is a beautiful and easy airport, all the flight crew were responsive and pleasant. We flew China Eastern and dealt with Shanghai airport on our flight out and I would avoid doing that again at great cost!"
Pros: "Food arrived quickly and the empty tray was removed quickly when the meal had been eaten"
Pros: "I loved the service, and comfort"
Cons: "The transfer time was too slim. I literally sprinted through the airport. I'm not exaggerating. I actually sprinted. My bag wasn't as quick however and didn't make the transfer. :("
Pros: "Quick service especially picking up the completed meals Very helpful with transit"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Considerate Staff"
Cons: "Business would be better; customs in Seoul are very slow."
Pros: "Food and service was exceptional."
Cons: "Boarding was a joke. They were very sure to make you feel inferior to business & first class. And then the boarding was a cluster. A Korean culture thing I guess."
Pros: "extra leg room was great"
Pros: "food selection & crew courtesy"
Cons: "pet boarding --- there was a puppy on board who cried & cried. I am a dog lover. Please be mindful that, this flight from JFK, NY, to Seoul, Korea, was 13+ hours. I am very aware about the stress created upon pets from air travels. Yet, it is upon each pet owners to decide which pet might travel on board. This particular pet owner chose to let his/her pet cry out pet's stress + discomfort throughout the flight and annoy all passengers. Pet owner took no action, for example, gave no sedative to the pet or hold the pet to provide comfort or safety. I personally find such behavior irresponsible."
Pros: "I enjoyed the service and the touch screen TV."
Cons: "I didn't enjoy how cramped the seats are."
Pros: "The flights were excellent. Hong Kong to Seoul and Seoul to Seattle. Business class lounge in Hong Kong was comfortable."
Cons: "The business class lounge in Seoul was very crowded with non-business class passengers. Not a pleasant experience."
Cons: "As I was about to board, I was denied carrying on my backpack with the few items I would need for the flight, so I was forced to put them into my carry-on suitcase which was loaded elsewhere, out of reach.. The insanity of it all - so glad the woman can count to two - is that I was forced by this angry person to carry my laptop and tablet onto the airplane in my hand, as she absolutely would not allow me to put them into my empty backpack, claiming this would constitute a third item. Of course, no one else was forced to take their computers out of their protective cases, only myself, because it was a backpack. I am 66 years old, travelling alone, and frankly am not the only international traveler who experiences unbelievable rudeness when in US airports."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "I am very impressed with this airline since stumbling upon it by chance last year during our first trip to the Philippines. We were greeted with a bottle of water, slippers and toothbrush w toothpaste, a blanket, earphones on our seat. The food is excellent and they feed you often. What was most impressive is the level of service provided by all Korean air staff. The stewardesses take great care of the passengers, always smiling and looking sharp in their uniform even though it's 3am and they have also been up the same time as you have!"
Pros: "The ladies are polite, respectful and quiet. Food is fresh and tasty and the bathroom... What a difference!! Apparently they clean it all the time."
Pros: "Food and crew's profesional service and care"
Pros: "There was plenty of room with empty seats."
Cons: "The breakfast food was not good. Some of the staff couldn't speak English."
Pros: "We were thrilled to be upgraded to business class for this long flight. Korean Air does it up proper., and I managed 5 hours of sleep en route. The food and cabin crew were excellent. It was tough to return to the economy class for our onward flight."
Pros: "Customer service was fantastic! They had even found my wife's Ray-Bans from the previous flight and saved them for us 2 weeks later when we flew back. Top notch airline!"
Pros: "I paid a fair price and got very good service. Seeing there were only middle seats available, the person at the check-in counter gave me the option of an exit row seat with lots of leg room. Slippers, toothbrush, blankets and pillows for everyone, nice meals with Korean and Western options. Wine with dinner. Two checked bag allowance included for American bound flights. The service held up to its reputation as excellent, and the flight attendants are friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The plane only had two bathrooms for the entire economy class. The in-flight movie selection was terrible (although everyone on the plane had their own screen)"
Cons: "Special meal options really bad. All vegetarian meal preferences including lacto-ovo-vegetarian are treated same as vegan, which is dumb."
Pros: "Korean Air is my favorite airline to fly. Spacious seats. Courteous staff in the airport and in the sky. Good food. Clean aircraft. Nice amenities. Classy uniforms."
Cons: "The movie selections were outdated and there weren't very many options"
Pros: "Great food selection;just the right amount."
Cons: "Improve sound system;selection of movies & music selections"
Pros: "Crew knew that I had a tight connection in Seattle so they moved me to first class for the last 20 min of the flight so that I could de-plane first. There were also representatives waiting in various locations throughout the airport with signs to make sure we made our connecting flights. A rep even met me at my next departure gate to ensure that I had made it!"
Pros: "Same as acove."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Lot of space for legs and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Nobody could find my reservation for a special meal and I ended up eating nothing"
Pros: "The ladies were very polite , smiling , and helpful."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "Not enough entertainment for a 10hr flight."
Pros: "A stewardess accidentally spilled some orange juice on me when serving shortly after takeoff from Incheon, and was extremely apologetic; I have suffered much worse in my fairly long life, I have made much worse mistakes,and it did not bother me at all; I declined the offer of cleaning costs, but the senior stewardess unexpectedly handed me an envelope while I was debarking in Seattle; I discovered it contained cash for the cleaning, an unexpected surprise. The crew overall was courteous, friendly but businesslike, and obviously knew it was their job to make the passengers comfortable and happy -- they did a very professional job of doing so. Three cheers for KAL"
Cons: "The entertainment system is not very important to me. However, it was extremely difficult for me to operate, even to reach the flight progress screen; its primary language of course is Korean, which I do not read or speak, and the required navigation sequences did not appear to me to be logical, Fortunately for me, I am not a TV person and generally read while awake on the flight."
I would not have changed anything… It was a perfect fight
Cleanliness Help for boarding and sitting Food should have been better
I was very disappointed to find out when I tried to pre-pay that because I bought my ticket from you I wasn’t not allowed to pre-pay for my excess luggage that would save 20% . Also, AS airlines gave me the seat which was not reclining. I was very disappointed
Departing and arriving wheelchair assistance needs to be increased.
Friendly staff. Could improve on the leg room.
If they have fruits as snacks that would have been good.
More Indian movies Travel kits were not provided in business class
Direct connection to US. Otherwise no in flight food choice and food quality is poor. Not much entertainment choices and are outdated. I just starved and slept through the flight.
Pros: "Crew were very gracious and kind."
Cons: "Food not as good as before"
Cons: "The aircraft was very cold and chilly."
Cons: "Better movie selection. Better organized boarding in Frankfurt"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."
Pros: "Crew very attentive but not intrusive. Food very good."
Cons: "I did not find much to watch on entertainment system. Have to get crew to assemble flat bed, a bit of a nuisance. Also to turn it back into a chair."
Cons: "Having boarded at SYD, during the Canberra stop, we were all required to disembarked. It was a loaded flight so the process was slow"
Pros: "Crew will try there best to help you in anyway"

Cons: "We ask for wheelchair help from Perth to brooome but it was not provided ."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great entertainment system Good staff"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "Punctual flight with friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew and the little things like blanket, pillow, hot towels etc that is just standard. The food was great except the bread rolls Entertainment system was fantastic"
Cons: "They seemed to miss a whole section with immigration cards which delayed my party of travellers when we landed. The recline of the seat is huge, great for those wo recline, not so great for the person behind them"
Pros: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay caused by technical issues. I'm just glad we found it on the ground, instead of in the air. But the delay was REALLY long."
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"
Cons: "Headphones didn’t work entirely for listening to movies. Had to manually hold it in."
Pros: "crews were helpful"

Pros: "Best Inflight Service Best Inflight Food Best Lounge"
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm"
Pros: "Crew very good as was entertainments system"

Pros: "Prem econ very good. Crew very friendly."
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"
Pros: "Food was delicious!"
Pros: "Efficient courteous and attractive crew. Good food drink selection and great entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the plane was an older 777-200 with smaller TV screens but otherwise fine."

Pros: "Main Entree hot"
Cons: "Cold bread; dessert similar sweetened gak"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Pros: "Cabin crew are always great"
Cons: "Cabin fitout is getting tired and dated. Etihad leaves it for dead in first class"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."
Pros: "Friendly staff, excellent customer service, great food"
Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Pros: "The SIA crew is the most gentle and careful I have ever encountered."

Pros: "Service was great, food was alright, was able to move from a middle seat to a window."

Cons: "I don’t need 3 meals. I need rest. I’d rather we turn out the lights"
Pros: "The crew were nice & the flight was on time."
Cons: "Food was ok but I was in the Economy class. I do agree with a review that no water was served during a long flight. Drinks were served only after a meal."
Cons: "Chicken pasta was cold on the returning flight. Flight crew didn’t come by with water that I saw, except before/with meals. Flight was very cold, even with their nice blanket."
Cons: "The crew were not very friendly, they went about their tasks but did not engage with the customers in a friendly manner. It was very much as though they were doing the minimum for the job/flight. For instance, when you board and sit down the first thing they give you is the menu and then the landing card. But I've just sat down I don't need these two extra pieces of paper immediately. I sat on an aisle and must have been knocked 5-6 times by the carts. After I was bumped then I hear the 'excuse us, carts coming through'."
Cons: "I don’t understand why flights don’t board from the back to the front. People at the back have to get past the ones in front still in the aisles to get to their seats."
Cons: "Great flight, and food was pretty good as well."
Cons: "the temperature on the plane fluctuates a lot. Sometimes very cold and sometimes too warm."
Pros: "Liked the food and overall atmosphere. Stewardesses were great."

Cons: "Food was not really appetizing."
Pros: "Fast and friendly service of the flight crew, The captain keeping us informated of turbulents and flight arrival time."
Cons: "Hard to sleep on international flights , especially when they last more then 8 hrs. I like that they are early morning flights . Not sure how to battle jet lag after a long flight. If Eva air could make a video / on board flight video on how to battle jet lag ."
Cons: "It was a long 9.5 hrs flight! Economy class is okay! Nothing wrong w the airline, its just not comfortable to sit for almost 10 hrs long!"
Pros: "All the staff were courteous and polite. Bathroom is clean and landing was perfect: it was so quite , I didn’t even know we touch downed."
Cons: "Didn’t like PA system: poor quality and pronunciation of English."

Pros: "Good food. Lots of movie selections. I like the amenities in the bathroom."
Cons: "Less space. No socket to charge phone."
Pros: "Eva Air had attendants on the ground pointing us all in the right direction to catch our flights with the minimum delay! Such a Quick turn around I was expecting my luggage wouldn't even make the flight!! But it did!! Also liked their mood lighting to replicate the time of day, since they asked us to keep our shades pulled all the time. Nice restrooms and I appreciated the toothbrush, earplugs and eyeshades they stocked in the restrooms!"
Cons: "Seats were tight. I usually have food served that will acclimate you to your destination city time zone. Not so with Eva Air. Two dinners instead of a Breakfast."
Pros: "Quick boarding, felt like more leg room than usual, polite courteous staff, good movie selection."
Cons: "Food was good, but I've had better with other Asian airlines. They served me croissant with breakfast that was so dry, it crumbled all over my lap."
Pros: "Attentive crew, clean washrooms, decent chairs, great food, enough entertainment. It was easy to transfer trains in an airport we have never been to."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above, but there were not a lot of open seats, so we were moved to the bulkhead."
Pros: "economy plus was well worth the extra money"
Pros: "Nothing. I find it ridiculous because I find a good deal on a flight I don't get credit for any of the miles!! I fly to Thailand 3-4 times a year and all I want is to get good service and when I have a three hour layover in Taipei to b able to go to the gold card lounge and relax!!"
Cons: "The seats are too small. There is not enough leg room. Very uncomfortable !!"
Pros: "I remember back when i was a kid and my Grandmother took us to Disneyland, back when there was "Service" in the USA. If i can avoid any US carrier, and I will fly with EVA. there is meals on flight, checked bags, carry-on bags, smiles, all without extra fees, charges, and they were least expensive to fly."
Cons: "As with all airlines the seats are a little tight and a bit more legroom would be nice, I am a larger man and it was still comfortable even after 18 hours of flight time."
Cons: "I had a strange experience with flight attendants who were obsessed with open and closed Windows (honestly why does it matter?) and was constantly being told to take off headphones which no other airlines make you do anymore. The flight attendants were just overbearing and rude at times."
Pros: "The stewardesses were outstanding and really seemed to care how we were treated. Fantastic"
Cons: "the entertainment from the flight from Taiwan to the Philippines was unsatisfactory in every conceivable way . No choices, no quality and the same for everyone."
Pros: "They didn't feed me after 12 hours of flight from Taiwan to Seattle."
Cons: "Nothing to like about Alaska airlines."
Pros: "This was a two-level plane and I was given a seat on the second floor. The second floor was quieter and I had a lot of leg room which made the long flight very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed approximately 2.5 hours. We boarded the flight and then sat in the plane as repairs were being made. The problem was "water leakage" and the restrooms were being worked on. Many people still used the restrooms while they were under maintenance. I'm unsure if that is what slowed down the repairing process, but if the plane was being repaired, I would rather not sit on the plane during the 2+ hour process."
Cons: "Always late, had been sitting in the airplane did 3 hours before even starting my 12 houra flight. My other 3 flights were also not on time..."
Pros: "Could charge my phone!"
Cons: "Not a fan of crowded economy class flights"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and responsive to all requests."
Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"
Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Kind and funny!"
Cons: "The weather, but pilots did great despite it."
Pros: "Entertainment options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."
Cons: "Asked for an isle seat; was stuck in the middle. Way to long of a flight for that"
Pros: "Their plane"
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Cons: "Food in business class and more choice of movies"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful again. This time I had an aisle seat in the center section and it was much more comfortable. The food was vegetarian and quite good."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "They took care of you. Meals were good. Excellent airline"
Pros: "I had to us the wheel chair And they were all GREAT I was by my self"
Cons: "Right now I can't think of any thing"
Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Cons: "Boarding and take off was delayed by about one hour, with no proactive communication from crew about the delay. Passengers waiting to board individually questioned why we had not started boarding yet when information screens in the airport displayed otherwise. We did not start boarding for a 12 hour international flight until ten minutes to scheduled take off. The first time we were informed about the delay as a group was after we had entered the aircraft."
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: "For the $s paid for this flight the crew could be a little bit friendlier and having a smile on their face."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "The meal choices were chicken curry or beef on this flight. They ran out of beef quickly. Why would you serve something like curry on an airplane that’s not at all agreeable to at least half the people on the plane and then force the rest of us to eat it when you run out of the other option? My seat recliner was broken so I got to sit straight up for 12 hours."
Cons: "I was not given a chance to make a seat assignment on the Alaska legs between Seattle and LA and ended up being stuck in a middle seat going both ways. There,was no option during booking to make a,seat selection. This was also true for the LA to Auckland outbound leg. This is an area needing improvenent."
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."
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: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."
Pros: "Two toilets in Premium Economy, comfortable seat with blanket, headphones, and large pillow"
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: "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: "All the attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The hand cream and lip balm were excessively scented. I could tell when anyone in the cabin used it. The food was a little too fussy for my taste with trying to put 12 ingredients in one chicken dish."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Pros: "Cool temps in plane"
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "Unclear check in counter"
Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"
Cons: "Got delayed in Queenstown and left the next day, First to Wellington, Auckland, Los Angeles and finally OKC"
Pros: "Foot rests, pillows, blankets, nice seats, and they had free in flight entertainment as well as dinner and beverages"
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: "I liked the entertainment selection. There were plenty of movies to choose from--and I do mean a massive selection. Also, the food was better than I usually expect from airplane food. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I guess this goes for all economy class seats, but there's no room to move. I was lucky to have an empty middle seat (which merits the "good" rating over the "okay"), but even with that, maneuvering was difficult (trying to get stuff from the carry on stored beneath the seat, etc.). Things got worse when the person in front of me decided to put his chair back all the way into my face."
Pros: "Plenty of movies. Tight legroom and harder to get into seats with pillows, headsets and blankets on seats and the plastic bags make them slip everywhere.. Maybe pass them out after everyone had boarded."
Cons: "See above. Plus it was a rough turbulent flight."
Pros: "I was on flight nz10 from Auckland to hawaii 3/28th. Loved the crew, they got us on board quickly and we would have taken off on time but had to wait for 2 people showing up late. Anyway, it was a redeye so people slept for most of it and I watched movies and drank wine. The airplane was clean and bathroom were as well. It was a full flight so a little cramped."
Pros: "Check in process was very good"
Cons: "Staff is not necessarily as attentive to individual needs as they could be. Many oversights in service. Also, the sound on my video speakers was distorted (loud screeching) that ruled out any chance to watch any movies on this long flight."
Pros: "already commented above, everthing about the same...staff was very nice"
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."
Pros: "Very friendly and good service- price was very high for the distance/time"
Pros: "Flew from LAX to NZ and then to Tonga. Both flights were amazing with the best cabin crews. I would highly recommend Air NZ."
Pros: "I have not flown international in a long time. It was confortable and entertainment was great. The only thing I did not like is that with New Zealand air one can only check in 1 bag for free. We stayed in NZ for 18 days. The other airlines let you check in 2 bags. For an international flight 2 bags is only fair. Thanks."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat back did not recline, free still water not available on touch screen ordering"
