Pros: "I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage..."
Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"
Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."
Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."
Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"

Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."
Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian options were all very similar. Over a 32 hour flight time I was provided with beans for breakfast/lunch and dinner. I would have preferrred more variety. Also being seated between two others was quiet uncomfortable for a long journey flight."
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."
Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "Excellent gluten free meal offered! I appreciate the extra effort with providing a gf bun and muffin with most meals!"
Pros: "the fare is so cheap ,service is excellent"
Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."

Pros: "Food and service good"
Cons: "Had a large person next to me so not much room :-("
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "The crew were always smiling and helpful. We were allocated the SkyCouch seat which was pretty nice"
Cons: "Missed the flight because of a very late connection. Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia kept handing me off to each other since it was booked as virgin Australia but on an air New Zealand flight. Neither wanted to help at first. Finally virgin Australia ticket agent took pity and helped me rebook for the next day. This was after I was told by air New Zealand that I had to call the booking number for virgin Australia. I’m traveling from the US and didn’t have a cell phone that worked in Australia... which I explained and asked how I could call the number without a phone. Was promptly told to go over to Virgin Australia ticket counter where I made the one remaining agent who was closing the desks help me. However the airport lost my luggage and could not find where it was. I ended up spending three hours in the airport and still no luggage with the baggage company saying they have no record of it anywhere. Very frustrating trip."
Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "The fact that our booking through Kayak did not record we had booked luggage. We KNOW we had booked luggage. Air NZ wanted to charge us $160 each bag. Eventually BYOJet got us through to Virgin who allowed us to buy luggage for $25 per bag. Thank you Virgin for your wonderful assistance 1 1/2 hours before departure. Virgin's standard ticket has 23kg luggage included. What is the problem with a ticket bought online through agents such as BYOJet and Kayak?"
Pros: "I was recovering from a cold and didn't anticipate having ear problems but during decent I began to experience some pain. It was all new to me as I had never been through this before. Fortunately the crew was kind and they provided a sinus decongestant in a cup for me to sniff and breath in so the smell could open up my nasal passages and it helped a bit."
Cons: "The sharp decent while arriving."
Pros: "Really quite comfortable seat and space wise Good to see entertainment still in the back seat"
Pros: "Happy helpful crew"
Cons: "Slow to board and no gate on arrival. Had to be bused to terminal and waited ten minutes for the bus to arrive."
Pros: "Quick, efficient service"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was running about a half hour late"
Pros: "The capitan spoke and explain that was perfect taking into account that was a cloudy day."
Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
Pros: "Getting on was a delight in Wellington. Having two set of doors open was great."
Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."
Pros: "Food, space, service. Arrived much more rested than in economy."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."
Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Seats were more cramped than usual"
Pros: "It was OK"
Cons: "It would of been nice to know why we were delayed."
Pros: "No drama."
Pros: "I got the bulkhead seat, so legroom was superb. The inflight dinner was also good (vegetarian gnocchi)."
Pros: "I didn’t book a seatbelt beforehand so when I checked in and was assigned the front row, which is an emergency exit row, I was very pleased because it meant I could board early and had extra legroom. The check in agent was also very patient with me while I tried to sort out my bags"
Pros: "Very easy flight, especially the Wellington airport part, with polite and efficient security."
Cons: "Nothing, it’s a LCC on a short flight doing its job very well. Pity my legs are longer than the distance between the seats though."
Cons: "Lots of extra fees"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed 20 minutes, the staff were efficient, polite and helpful with my elderly mum."
Cons: "We were shocked to be charged $275 for two checked bags. At the point that you are checking in you are trapped and don't have a choice but to pay it. We were told that if we had paid in advance it would be cheaper, but we didn't know what the weight of our bags would be so I just figured I'd pay at the airport. They didn't say that they charge so much more at the airport - which is a total rip off. We were also harassed by not having the email that showed we purchased an Australian Visa which is digitally tied to our passport. If they need to verify our Visa, then they should have the electronic means to verify it. Also, we were traveling from Sydney to Auckland so since we were leaving the country I'm not sure why they had to see our Australian Visa in the first place. We were already in the country!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly as scheduled."
Cons: "The waiting"
Cons: "I didn’t really like the fact that we had to pay for seats."
Pros: "Crew were patient & helpful"
Cons: "The fact that both my recent Jetstar flights have been delayed (to & from Rarotonga, and today’s flight was so late I missed my connecting flight & it meant a disadvantage to my family plus $221 extra for me to buy another ticket."
Pros: "The pilot made such a smooth landing, it was one of the best I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Probably just the delay and time management for boarding"
Pros: "Early departure, smooth operation, efficient service"
Cons: "Seats a bit close for Clive’s 6 foot frame"
Cons: "The attendants at the desk for check in were rud. The flight was delayed. No service, food or entertainment during the flight"
Pros: "3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Not even some food to wait"
Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask. The flight was on time."
Cons: "It was a flight we've done heaps before. It would be nice to have all luggage actually transferred through from Napier to Manchester as it's an added challenge when also carting babies around."
Pros: "flight comfort was as expected"
Cons: "plane was over an hour late. a week before another Jetstar flight to Queenstown was 2 hours late. seems Jetstar is often late."
Pros: "No mess airline, fast and efficient"
Pros: "Arrangement when flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Cancel the flight without letting me know"
Cons: "1 hour delay on take off"
Cons: "The floor next to my seat looked like someone had emptied their chip packet on it. The plane was late arriving but surely there’s time to vacuum up the mess!"
Pros: "Great boarding process. Happy/smiling staff. Great experience overall."
Cons: "No onboard entertaibment but it is a budget airline on a short haul flight so...."
Pros: "The crew were friendly enough and were accommodating in handling my baggage"
Cons: "The plane was an older model airbus configured to maximize seating. as a result the flight was uncomfortable. You think this may be the reason for the fairly low fare but they stick it to you with baggage fees. The maximum is 15kgs [ most airlines allow 23kgs ] In addition you have to pay for all items on board. There is no such thing as free coffee or soft drinks. I would recommend this airline if you have little or no baggage and are going on a day trip to Wellington or Auckland. Otherwise, stick with Air New Zealand."
Pros: "flight was on time, moved everyone efficiently, quickly through boarding gates, luggage arrived quickly - not a long wait to get it, staff nice, professional, polite, greeted us in friendly way"
Cons: "seats - squashed in close to seat in front and behind - can't tilt seat back into relaxing position"
Pros: "Excellent leg room in the dash 8 plane."
Cons: "1 star for entertainment and food because the flight is only 40 minutes!"
Cons: "I thought it was poor I had to pay $60 for carry on luggage. Absolute rip off"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and no delays. Didn't order any food and no entertainment on planes from Nelson to Auckland"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to come out. Likely due to Jetstar only having one carousel."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Awful service, took a booking from Melbourne to Aukland and cancelled 5 hours later. Offered no alternative or option but to leave our trip. Completely destroyed our travels which we saved years to accomplish. Avoid these (JETSTAR) like the plague, unless you want an incompetent airline to wreck your traveling. Words really cannot describe our feelings towards our treatment and lack of any empathy from the airline, who took a booking and then cancelled it in record and and said there is no other flights! Thanks for that - never again."
Pros: "On time departure/arrival"
Pros: "We didn't crash and everything apart from the leg room being smaller was okay."
Cons: "They have taken two inches off the leg room. I know cause my legs now don't fit sitting straight."
Pros: "I got to my next destination"
Cons: "The $320 charge for our bags at check in!!!! No mention from kayak that there is a higher charge for bags if u pay after U buy the ticket. The walk outside To get on and off the plane. Nothing good about this airline or the lack of adequate description of their ridiculous policies from Kayak"
Pros: "courtesy baggage for carry on"
Cons: "Late flight 1.5 hr delay....so missed business meeting...will not use again for business or time critical travel And seated next to a fat passenger who spilled into my seat...most uncomfortable flight leaning into aisle to get some space meant I was bumped by the crew. lame experience all round"
Pros: "flight smooth with bad weather, competent pilots"
Cons: "Bagage fee extortion, we were a family of four and had to pay $200 US dollars for 4 bags because it was not paid online. I wasn't sure what everyone was bringing yet when I booked tickets. the baggage agent told us it would have been less than ten dollars per bag if booked online. I can see doubling the price but not quadrupling... the luggage is still boarding the plane, whether you pay 10 or 50 dollars, it doesn't change anything other than they make more money off of the passengers."
Pros: "I was rebooked to JQ7001 which is VERY disappointing as it leaves Sydney 6 hours later than JQ199, my original flight. Reason given by Jetstar: JQ199 has been closed. An outright lie as JQ199 departed Sydney as per schedule today. I"
Cons: "We were charged over $300 (NZ) for the check in luggage!!! I told the agent this is ridiculous, our seats were only $159 (NZ). She said that I should have read the "terms & conditions." Like other reviewers, I booked this flight over 3 months ago and didn't take note of any extra charges for checked-in luggage. After reading the comments of others in the same situation, I realize that I'm not alone. I wish I had checked out these reviews of Jetstar BEFORE I booked. You would be doing your clients a big favor to include mention of this strange practice of not including luggage fees by Jetstar..and warn them that these fees could bring the total cost of their airfare to over $500 for a 100 minute domestic flight for 2 travelers. My husband said next time we're going through a travel agent. Sorry"
Pros: "Crew very helpful thanks. A bit rough to have to pay 4 baggage in top of paying 4 flight.On international flights, yr baggage is included in the price ."
Cons: "Delayed due to "engineering problems longer than usual" for incoming flight into Wellington. Then jet bridge door at AKL wouldn't open which added more time. Frustrating when travel is time sensitive."
Pros: "Nothing, never, ever go on Jetstar"
Cons: "No explanation, no time table, awful service."
Pros: "From check in to arrival at Auckland, service was great and just as I expected!"
Pros: "The fare was cheap and my body physically was moved from the origin to the destination..."
Cons: "The website and customer service are annoyingly difficult to use, potentially designed to force you to pay more for extras like bags. For instance, if you pay for your bag ahead of time, it is meant to be cheaper. I tried to pay for my bag ahead of time and it took me to a check-in page. I tried multiple times but only ever got to the same check-in page. Figuring that perhaps I needed to check in first, I did this step only to find that if you pay for your bag after check in, it costs more money!! On the return trip, I felt wiser so I refused to fill in the check-in page before paying for baggage. I exhausted every possible link on their website and ultimately had to call customer service. This took an annoyingly long time. I was told when I tried to pay for a 15kg bag that they had run out of space on the plane and I couldn't pay for this; however, I COULD pay for a 20kg bag at a higher price. WHAT? As I was told this was my only option, I took it, but the logic defies reason and makes me conclude that their systems are simply designed to force you to pay for extras. If I had it to do over, I would just book Air New Zealand for an extra $50-- it would save me plenty of time and hassle."
Pros: "We selected this flight with no knowledge of this airline, as we were coming from the states. Being international traveling for three weeks obviously we had some luggage with us. This domestic flight does not allow any free check in, and you are only allowed 7 kg as a carry-on. You also have to pre-pay for your check in baggage before you get to the airport otherwise you are charged three times the price. If you don't know all of this before you go, you will be in big trouble. I do not recommend this airline for international travelers."
Pros: "The cabine crew"
Cons: "40 mn delay on a 3h45 flight is a little bit too much. Airplane not really comfortable and noisy. But that is what low cost means, right?!"
Pros: "Low price, on time departure"
Cons: "No food or entertainment options. Seats mediocre in comfort."
Pros: "Service. Timings. Pro attitude"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Cheerful, pleasant and helpful ground crew and flight attendant"
Cons: "Not even a cup of water available in flight??"
Pros: "Easy, efficient"
Cons: "Very expensive"
Pros: "Was in an exit seat, and stewardess were both very friendly."
Pros: "They left on time."
Cons: "The Jetstar checkin staff. They are not very friendly. I was a few kilos overweight and I had nothing but grief from them - as well as my purse put on the scales - which added to the weight. I have never had my purse put on the scales before. I ended up having to pay $160.00 Australian for a few kilos. My fare did not even cost that much. As far as I am concerned Jetstar need a watchdog to take this up on travellers behalf. How can a few filos cost that much - when you can book your luggage through for $25.00."
Cons: "Left late and ripped the handle off my case."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ground staff attitude, very inconsiderate, we thought that being an international flight , we were entitled to checked baggage so did not include that when we did booking. Found out at the airport that we did not have any checked baggage allowance. Although we explained that this was an error as we were under the impression that checked baggage was always included for international flights they were very in considerate and made us pay $ 320.00. Will inform everyone to avoid Jet Star airlines when they travel."
