Pros: "I had to cancel the flight because the have customer service very poor in air New Zealand vancouver BC agents the could not solve a simple problem in esta that happened to me similarly in Australia with the same problem of esta if they are not efficient they should be replaced there many good candidate for airlines in Vancouver BC"
Cons: "Improve customer services"
Pros: "very comfortable reclining seats for sleeping. It was a lot of work for the attendants setting up each bed and then taking it apart. But for me, it was much more comfortable than the flight from SFO to ACK."
Cons: "Movies did not change from November to December. I watched 3 on the way to NZ in Nov and they were still the only 3 to interest me on the return flight. Disappointed."
Pros: "I really liked how instructions were said clearly with visuals, in particular, the video at the start of the flight. It brought a sense of relief and wonder. I enjoyed the lunch I had too. The lamb curry is sublime. I would have it every day to be honest. I was also lucky that I had passengers who sat next to me, who were kind and lovely."
Cons: "Only the take off from the flight. It made me dizzy and nautious."
Pros: "Sat in business class pods. Best flights we’ve ever taken !"

Pros: "The crew was fine. the seats were not so comfortable in the economy."
Cons: "More comfortable seats."
Cons: "I couldn’t get the seat to recline."

Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable (exit row) for a commuter jet."
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."
Pros: "Air NZ is fantastic start to finish and airport security doesn’t make you take off your shoes in the airport. Flight was on time start to finish."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for more than one hour which we did not have sufficient time for transfer to LA. We have to run instead of walking."
Pros: "trivia was fun"
Cons: "They don't greet me only the people in front and behind me. I didn't receive a meal she skipped me i don't know if you have to pay or not but the person on the left of me got one and the person the right got one"
Pros: "All round excellent - great service, food et al."
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."
Cons: "Narrow isles ment I kept getting bumped the entire flight."
Pros: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"
Cons: "Friendly and efficient"
Pros: "The seats are super comfy and the staff are lovely and very attentive to ones needs. The only down fall would be that I had to pay for movies and a meal wasn’t included with my flight, but that’s minor. Also, baggage cost me 120.AUD for one bag! I thought that was pretty outrageous for one check in bag. But the pilot was very good and informative as the overall flight was smooth. Thanks again air New Zealand."
Cons: "Over priced check in bag. Due to it not being according to weight. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."
Pros: "Food and service good"
Cons: "Had a large person next to me so not much room :-("
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "Larding is shambullick from LAX! Needs improving your system . No one to tell you early which line and existing signs for economy and Premium do not stand out .. staff need to be on the ground sooner letting people know and asking them which seats to prevent most people being in the wrong queue"
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Pros: "The crew, food, entertainment made the flight comfortable"
Cons: "I felt I was gouged on my 2nd bag fee with an outrageous cost of $200.00 aud or $150.00US. It only weighed 20lbs. as well."
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."
Cons: "the person next too me was overflowing in their seat so much they took up a quarter of my spot.. it was not work making the flight uncomfortable by making a stink about it but I paid for a whole seat not 3/4 of one!"
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: "The service was very nice. The food was good. The entertainment choices were good as well."
Cons: "The seating was to crowded, you could tell that an extra seat was added in the middle section. What was once three seats was now four. Very disapointing. A deal breaker for long flights."
Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."
Cons: "Got delayed in Queenstown and left the next day, First to Wellington, Auckland, Los Angeles and finally OKC"
Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was running about a half hour late"
Pros: "Significantly more leg room than other competitors! Even with the person's chair reclined in front of me, I was still able to be comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was as good as can be (given that it is airline food), the choices for entertainment were great. Lots of overhead storage!"
Cons: "Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke."
Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant, good food, clean seat"
Cons: "They checked in my mag with knowing my transfer time to the connecting flight in another country is only 10 mins delayed despite I kept questioning them. They told me there would be people "escort " me through the security check point and the flight would help us. And they even told me they knew I had "enough" time to transfer that's why airline did not change my flight. But once I checked in my luggage and passed the security check, I received a new flight ticket through email. They totally changed my connecting flight to a much later one. Only 20 mins later after they told me to check in my luggage and promise the connecting flight would wait for me. Later the manager said" I don't know who told you that, but no one could catch a connecting flight in 10 mins.""
Pros: "Free drinks!"
Pros: "Agents were helpful once entering the plane. They take the time to greet us, look at our ticket and direct us which row to take. Very helpful."

Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Everything else"

I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."
Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"
Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."

Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."
Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."

Cons: "I was right by the toilets"
Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"

Cons: "All round excellent"
Cons: "can not think of any."
Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Pros: "The design of the storage on the back of the seat in front is very clever and makes a huge difference - e.g. foot rest The entertainment system is very good Food was excellent for plane food"

Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Crew didn't come around enough with water"

Pros: "Very bad entertainment food not that good. Check in at Melbourne airport very mess"
Cons: "Everything. Food not good. Entertainment very bad check in at Melbourne airport very bad. The seat of the business class are not comfortable very small not worth the price we pay"
Cons: "Ended up on a Jetstar flight on a codeshare arrangement with our booked airline Qantas. The journey didn’t start well when our bags would not scan through the self serve checkin as we had not booked direct with Jetstar. We then asked for an aisle seat, but this was refused - the “customer service” assistant advised we should have paid extra to pre-reserve a seat (a no cost option on Qantas). Then when we entered the plane we found that both adjacent aisle seats were in fact vacant. Food was an additional cost item - on an 8 hour flight. Those unlucky enough to ask for a meal late found that there was nothing left for them. Entertainment was also an additional cost item - when paid for the selection was extremely limited, the system slow. The entertainment froze up requiring a reboot. Though not the airline’s fault, the person behind was very fidgety, making it very uncomfortable for anyone sitting in front of him. If the seats were slightly further apart we might not have had that experience either. All in all not the best, given that we had booked with a full price airline and ended up on a budget airline instead."
Cons: "I find the whole paying for all the extras a pain and probably won't do it again. Otherwise okay."
Cons: "Lack of legroom."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Shame the staff were not more friendly, I took my rubbish to find a bin and the flight attendant expressed her annoyance and me. Asking her where I can put it. They don't smile and when you asked a question they treated me like I was a nuisance"

Cons: "Credit card only for purchases without advance notice is a bit ordinary"
Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Staff appear permanently unhappy and like they don't enjoy the job"
Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Configuration 2 3 2 and seat pitch and reclining"
Cons: "Boarding on tarmac in the rain, no cover over walkway. Smallest and tightest seating in the airline business."
Pros: "It was a good flight, good pilot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed It is a 7+ hour flight I think you could offer some snacks and coffee or tea for free At least one good movie for free Every airline I've chosen to fly with does it but Jetstar It was quite disappointing"
Pros: "Plane was amazing but more room between rows would be so appreciated. We didn't pre-select our meals going to Australia and that was a huge mistake as not much remained to choose from. Won't do that again."
Cons: "The crew brought me the wrong wine and appeared annoyed when I noted this. She never did return with the correct wine which I had already paid for--I had to ask another crew member."
Pros: "I wish all airlines were as professional and prompt."
Pros: "Good entertainment, friendly crew"

Cons: "Seating cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Comfortable and on time!"
Pros: "Fast check in process, fast boarding"

Pros: "Great people , completely happy with my trip ' ! Thanks jets star"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and cheerful."
Cons: "Crew were not aware I had a starter plus package which included a food voucher. This often happens with Jetstar and is annoying when you have paid for the extras. Also flight was delayed and I had to make a connecting flight. Would have been good if crew ensured people did not straggle when boarding with the appropriate announcements."
Cons: "purchased movies but the audio-visual didnt work. I should expect refund."
