Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew on Air NZ is consistently wonderful. The entertainment and sets for domestic flights are good, but not great. For international flights, their seats and entertainment are excellent."

Pros: "The crew was very hospitable and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The corn chips!"

Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."

Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Overall great"

Pros: "Lovely, friendly crew!"
Cons: "No seat selection available on line, so stuffed in the back. No place for luggage. No soft drinks on flight. Mexican chips??? What’s that about?"

Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"

Cons: "We got off an hour and a half late as there was an audio technical problem."

Pros: "Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated."
Cons: "The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland."

Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"

Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"

Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"

Cons: "$80 baggage fees for luggage over 7 kg. I wasn’t aware of high price and luggage weight restriction until I was at airport"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"

Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"

Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."

Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked. My son had purchased my ticket and not bought luggage voucher. They helped me get online and buy voucher. Would recommend airline to anyone traveling in that part of world."
Cons: "It was a very positive experience. No complaints. I will definately fly Air New Zealand when that is an option."

Pros: "Crew solid n friendly enough"
Cons: "Seats too tight n cramped"

Cons: "I was connecting on an International flight on same airline, New Zealand Air, and did not see where I was required to pay for our one checked bags for my wife and I. 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: "The regional flights are nice and quick with no frills or complications. Everyone is in one cabin and you can quickly board using kiosks at the gate."
Cons: "You might want to bring a book on this flight or something as their in-flight video and adverts are all you'll really see in terms of entertainment."

Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Late"

Cons: "Bathroom did not work, food was not so tasty"

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: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"

Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."

Pros: "Attendants were friendly. The agent at the gate rerouted my flight after my initial flight was delayed. She explained she did that so that I could make my international connection in time."

Pros: "Comfy seats, the flight was basically empty so I got my own row. Very nice flight attendants. Pilot kept us updated on timing and storm movement."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, seat hadn’t been swept for garbage from the previous flight (wrappers and used tissues in the seat pocket)."

Pros: "Quickest boarding ever - Have hardly seen an airline having people board through the rear entry Super fun safety video All-in-all a great experience"

Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."

Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."

Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."
Cons: "Flight was little late but not too bad."

Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."
