Cons: "1) It's pretty standard to offer a small toiletries pack (eg. Eyecover, toothbrush/paste, etc) on long-haul flights for other airlines. 2) Felt ripped off paying $50 for "preferred economy" seats that looked/felt identical to standard economy seats. Should be marketed as just priority boarding."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. They were incredibly polite and accommodating. This was my first time flying for more than three hours (15 hours from Houston to Auckland) and it really could not have gone much better."
Cons: "Always need a little more legroom in economy but it's a small sacrifice for getting an affordable flight."

Pros: "All round excellent - great service, food et al."
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."

Cons: "Was pretfy much Ok"
Cons: "it was very cold"

When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."
Pros: "Ditto to the above!!!"
Cons: "The on ground experience in Los Angeles was horrible (not Air New Zealand's fault). Made our plane (a scheduled flight?) park well over a mile from the terminals and bus passengers into customs. LA Customs is always a hassle, way too long of lines and agents with an attitude. One custom officer (the final check through) was great, the rest were grouches."
Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."
Pros: "Will never book though BYOJet again."
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: "Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable."

Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."
Cons: "Issue with baggage, i.e. no indication of what was included in the ticket and no way to pre-pay for luggage (at what I already considered an exorbitant rate of 60$ per piece) so ended up having to pay120$ each for 2 checked bags at the airport!"

Pros: "The vegetarian meals were delicious. Thanks."
Pros: "The flight is long but is made better by having the in flight entertainment, food, and drinks for free. They don't nickel and dime you like united does"

Cons: "service is prefunctory without heart"
Pros: "Entertainment and check in staff."
Cons: "Wasn’t able to check in on line. Was asked to pay for seat request on return flight. Passenger put seats as far as can go bashing into my knees (and I am average height. Not very tall), both 15-16 hour flights. It was awful and crew only insist chair is raised slightly for meals. none of my flights since joining frequent flyer were honoured scoring “0” points for flights from/back to US. Back to Delta I guess"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."

Pros: "I had a nice seat."
Cons: "Staff were unattentive, nasty"
Cons: "I left my jacket on the plane and didn't notice until I'd gone through customs (about 20 minutes after leaving the plane). There was NO way to contact Quantas or go back or do anything to get my clothing back. No one at the airport had any suggestions for me. The airport phone that dialed Quantas was only for frequent flyer point inquiries. I have now been trying for a full day (three phone calls with zero helpfulness) to see if anything can be done. I understand that I made the mistake of forgetting my items but the 17 hour flight left me a bit spacey. I am super frustrated."
Cons: "We were unable to access the boarding area until about 15 min prior to the flight for some unknown reason. We were held in an "anteroom" area. The boarding process was a bit confused as a result."
Cons: "The crew was not all that friendly in my section"
Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."
Cons: "Cant think of a thing."
Pros: "The crew is always pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The business class seats are average at best. The dinner service is good but not well coordinated. The cheese platter at dessert is really anticlimactic. I look forward to international biz class meals, but I want this to be better."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew. Varied entertainment options, including a selection of Australian films. Good food!"
Cons: "Cramped seats. There is no need for air travel to be so miserable in terms of legroom."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. That’s was about it."
Cons: "The food was horrible. It’s hard to believe the airline would serve food like that. The flight is long and hard enough as it is. The “snack” options listed are not available. Only one option is available and it’s was horrrible. Also, a kid friendly menu or option needs to be available. The crew wasn’t very friendly either."
Pros: "Decent plane, good staff, very clean"
Cons: "Food was only ok, limited entertainment choices"
Pros: "Service always attentive and genuine"
Cons: "Food was not as good as previous Qantas flights. Probably because it was catering to American crowd."
Pros: "I didn't eat dinner as I was too tired, but the breakfast was good and dinner looked pretty good. For airline food, that is. The staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "I previously flew Tokyo to Sydney premium economy on Japan Air and that created expectations. This was significantly worse. The seats were not as comfortable or as spacious. On JL, you have a bit of a barrier between you and the person in the next seat. On Qantas, you very much do not. While this is probably more just bad luck than anything else, the boarding experience was nightmarish with swarms of people blocking every passage."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delays are too often"
Cons: "The discomfort of modern economy flying just overwhelms any positives. Better seats with more room are needed."
Cons: "I had pre-requested a seat and got moved when I arrived but I didn't notice so I couldn't ask to be reseated until I got on the plane and realized. I also found the crew to be blunt and not friendly."
Pros: "Service and food was pretty good."
Cons: "Didn't care for the movie selection. Not much of a variety."
Pros: "Checking in and bag drop process was the simplest and hassle free!"
Cons: "The flight cleanliness and food options could be improved. Some staff were super friendly while others not so much."
Pros: "I was worried about the long flight; but it went very well. The crew was so friendly and I felt very taken care of. The food services were well-timed. Awesome selection of movies and shows. We were provided a blanket, pillow, eye mask etc."
Cons: "I wish business class was not so expensive."
Pros: "Everyone and everything"
Pros: "Nice crew. Nice food. Nice movies. Smooth ride"
Pros: "On time efficient service"
Pros: "Great entertainment choices. Slept most of the flight from SFO to Sydney but when awake crew was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine, fruit actually better than expected."
Cons: "USB charging ports didn't work in my row."
Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."
Pros: "Surprised they served breakfast on short haul flight. Check in easy."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "Good food great service nice and friendly staff"
Pros: "Such an arduous and indirect flight route and entertainment screen was non viable but always good to fly with Qantas!"
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew, plenty of snacks and drinks Good range of entertainment options"
Cons: "One of seats did not recline with button-push, but cabin crew instructed us on the use of the manual adjustment, so it worked out OK in the end. We flew Premier Economy on the LA-SYD outgoing trip; the main difference for our SYD-LA return in Economy was the presence of a 3rd seat in our row occupied by a stranger, so bathroom breaks were a bit of a disturbance for all involved. Still you get what you pay for I guess!"
