Pros: "Everything ❤❤❤"
Pros: "It was a short flight :)"
Cons: "- seat space is tiny, and I'm 6'2" - plane was full to the brim - in-seat TV was annoying: either you paid for something, or it kept turning on and showing advertising - engine noise was terrible.

Cons: "Air NZ website states exit row seating purchase comes with priority boarding. When I asked about this at the gate counter I was told I would be seated by row number.

Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Cons: "I was not given a meal for dinner. When I asked they sheepishly looked away from me and told me that there would be a voucher when we landed. We did not get any voucher,nor did they make an announcement that they ran out of food and would not be able to feed half of the plane. I am extremely disappointed in how this was handled, as people next to me were given first class meals and I was given one piece of cheese and one cracker. In the morning for breakfast my meal almost didn't come, I had to ask for it. And when it was given to me it was already opened and messed with."

Pros: "It was okay the plan was a bit small and uncomfortable for an international flight.."
Cons: "My luggge didn't make the flight...I had to wait almost two days. And the airport is not close to where I was staying. No one offer to compensate for the inconvenience. We had to leave to another island so we was in a rush for our luggage."
Pros: "I liked that there was breakfast on the plane"
Cons: "The seats weren't very adjustable or comfortable and there could have been more movie and tv selection for such a long flight"
