Pros: "The crew"

Pros: "The crew on air New Zealand was absolutely amazing. Amazing customer service, makes me always want to fly with air New Zealand."
Cons: "I had no heads up that New Zealand required an app downloaded and a government check before you can travel to New Zealand. Because of this, I had to download the app at the airport, and because it can take up to 72 hours for the NZ gov to approve your app, I almost missed my flight. Would have appreciated 72 hours notice of this new rule."

Cons: "Breakfast was not tasty. Options could have been better."

Pros: "The space!"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Had to cancel trip because a passenger was hit by a car one week before the trip. Refused a refund by the airline."

Pros: "The crew member in my section was amazing, he went out of his way to greet each and everyone of us individually. The flight was comfortable, boarding a breeze and on time!"

Pros: "Crew were great!"

Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My seat 57E could not be adjusted but half way through the flight was given another seat and managed to get some sleep. In our experience Air New Zealand is tops."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible."

Pros: "The crew is amazing. Always friendly, smiling and happy to oblige. Love the New Zealand hospitality. The inflight entertainment has so many programmes to watch, and the list of music options to listen in to is well stocked. Food is excellent. Obviously overate in the 9 1/2 hour flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crumbs still on my seat when I boarded"

Pros: "Nice, short flight. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two very large women. Couldn't be helped, was a full flight."

Pros: "Short flight. No problems."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was really nice however slightly absent during the flight."
Cons: "Drinks should have been more frequently offered . Refreshments/water seemed hard to come by I had to chase them down in the galley only to get luke warm water...? Seats are pretty cramped and small with not much room."

Pros: "Wellington airport is the most accessible and relaxed I’ve used, and the Air New Zealand Check-in process was the easiest I’ve used so far."

Pros: "Flying on the plane with mighty KORU on the tail always gives me a buzz"
Cons: "Better meal as the meat dish was a bit cold when it arrived."

Pros: "Very friendly ground service staff member, lovely to be transferred to an earlier flight and my seating request was granted, flight service was also excellent."

Cons: "Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount."

Pros: "Generally Excellent."
Cons: "After years of traveling with a Personal Assitive device (many times on ANZ), the pilot refused to carry the device. It is still stuck in Sydney, although they say they will deliver to our home."

Pros: "A whole season of New Girl!"
Cons: "Was very crammed."

Cons: "No enough blankets when feeling cold"

Pros: "Punctual flight, great boarding and great baggage service."
Cons: "Bag drop could be improved with more personnel to help."

Cons: "There was only approximately 13 inches for the aisle between seat sections. It was mostly women with big wide hips who kept me awake most of the 12 hour and 34 minute flight, as they brushed my shoulder disturbing my ability to rest."

Pros: "We liked that we got to watch some entertainment for an economy seat."
Cons: "The check in process was a disaster- and none of the crew knew what they were doing. They were very unhelpful and on topof that kayak did not let us know there would be a $160 fee if we did not order a seat with a baggage. It was not clear on the third party site. It was a very costly for us, a couple who is on a budget. i book From kayak all the time, and know exactly when I am booking an economy ticket vs a more upgrade. We had to pay an unexpected $320 on the day of flight. It was ridiculous and while we were boarding the flight attendants held us up again bc we had not paid the fee. But we tried to pay the fee at the front desk the first time and then we paid it at the gate and then boarded last on the plane. It was awful. The staff did not know anything and we were not treated great. Super unprofessional and disappointed at Kayak for not laying out all the costs ahead of me."

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: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "Staff were lovely and food good ."
Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."

Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"

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: "The entire experience is well thought out"

Cons: "Narrow Ailes make it difficult to board."

Cons: "ANZ changed the flight time to 3 hours EARLIER, and they sent NO notification of the change. Missed the flight, and there were no ANZ staff to help, so had to buy a new ticket ( to the tune of $1700.)"

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"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."

Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"

Pros: "The service was excellent. The food was wonderful and the cabin very comfortable."

Pros: "Very friendly ticket counter staff and flight crew."
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak on Virgin Australia, but found out it was a codeshare on Air New Zealand. No where during booking did it show we would be charged for 1 checked bag a piece. Got to the airport and Air New Zealand was going to charge 134 AUD for each checked bag. Fortunately, they recommended going to the Virgin Australia counter to see if they could add a checked bag to our ticket. The nice people at Virgin used an online code to give us a discount so we only paid 25 AUD a bag. Thanks a lot for the heads up Kayak. We will book direct next time to avoid surprises. Also, almost all movies on Air New Zealand were an extra charge, and the only drinks offered for free on a 3 hour flight were coffee, tea, and water - no soft drinks."

Pros: "Air NZwas a good carrier"
Cons: "Kayak to Virgin Australia to Air NZ - we had a long layover and surprised by 0 bag check in and very expensive charge, When asking for help all told to go to the other : for earlier flight - huge charges - no help : bags - no help and we paid onerous amounts. All bad and with lots of frustration trying to get help."

Cons: "Set seats for 2 middle of 4 middle row E & F seatsw"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."

Cons: "Virgin Australia operated by air New Zealand. Couldnt check in online and had to be chat he been."

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"

Pros: "Air New Zealand is one of the best air experiences we've had. Employees seem to enjoy their jobs and are usually happy. Very service oriented. Ground staff and check in terrific. Why can't USA folks and TSA figure this out? Updates from flight deck were good and pilot seemed to avoid some expected turbulence. Cabin crew friendly, competent, helpful. Food was very good, nice touch with comp wine. Entertainment options were many and good variety. Hope to fly ANZ again someday."
Cons: "A little weird, to go out of secured concourse and go back through security, again, in Auckland. Safety, I suppose. At least process was fast and efficient and folks were friendly."

Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."

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: "Wonderful employees"

Pros: "Great seats, great crew."
Cons: "Was not anything too exciting on Entertainment with regards to movies, but personal choice really."

Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."

Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"

Cons: "Wrong communication for connecting flights. Poor customer service, flight attendants not friendly."

Pros: "Crew and flight comfort were fine until the flight got canceled after sitting on the plane for over an hour"
Cons: "Wasn’t happy with the accommodation after the flight cancellation, was told no other flights for 3 days so I ended up paying $250 more to get on a different airline that day to make the wedding I was going for."

Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable, good entertainment"
Cons: "Poor gluten free options"

Pros: "The crew were superlative."
Cons: "The seat folded to a flat bed, yet the boulder area remained raised, making the comfort level for a tall person, somewhat rest cited. My neck really quite sore as a result. Was an old plane tho, and the controls for movies , seats etc were archaic"

Cons: "Too long of a wait for "parking" after landing"

Cons: "Everything about the flight was great with the exception that the WiFi was pretty terrible and didnt work the final few hours of the flight. I raise the issue because customers shouldn’t pay $15 for it if it doesn’t work."

Pros: "-Good legroom -Good seat width -Good recline -OK food -OK lavatory"
Cons: "-Outdated entertainment system -Seat was not very comfortable when compared to other airlines -Could not connect to Wi-Fi due to unintuitiveness -Skysurfers uneligible to connect to Wi-Fi despite being Silver and higher"

Cons: "None..."

Pros: "Fast and easy"

Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"

Pros: "the seats, the window"
Cons: "fliglth to short"

Cons: "seat was ok staff are very rude food was poor and cold on first flight"

Cons: "You cancelled my return ticket without informing me or giving a refund. Lied about the refund in the emails you sent me."

Cons: "The bathroom must be kept cleaner."

Pros: "Crew service, and service at Emirates lounge in Dubai, were outstanding"

Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"

Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"

Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."

Cons: "Boarding from connecting flight was manic, gate closing as we arrived only to then sit on the plane for about 40 mins before it moved. Extra leg room seats at extra cost are near toilets and watching the comings and goings from there is not pleasant. Staff ok but nothing special, left waiting with forms for lost luggage, little explanation. Plane decor looks tired, seats narrow. Luggage lost. Know why I like to fly Thai airways"

Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"

Pros: "Comfortable overall, not much turbulance"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight delayed 7:16 hours"

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"

Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"

Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"

Pros: "Comfort, amenities"

Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."

Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"

Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"

Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"

Pros: "Good serevice"
Cons: "food provided is not good. All western style most passengers are from Asia"

Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."

Pros: "Staff were quite attentive. All requested were promptly fulfilled"
Cons: "Service took a long time once on the flight. We left Sydney at 7pm and didn't receive any food or drinks for at least an hour and a half."

Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."

Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."

Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."

Pros: "It was a routine flight and everything was OK but not fantastic"
Cons: "Some of the food served was quite bad .... other options were pretty good"

Pros: "Crew were nice and entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Flight was 1hr 40 minutes late and had to catch a bus to the end of the airport to even board. As well as shared terminal gates..."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."

Pros: "New screens new seats and very modern"
Cons: "Flight delay could’ve been shorter."

Pros: "Good movies make for a quick trip"

Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"

Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"

Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"

Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."

Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."

Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."

Pros: "Both planes were clean service was good"
Cons: "Both flights delayed"

Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."

Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."

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: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."

Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"

Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."

Pros: "Getting through airport at Sydney was nice and easy, and good overall at JFK."
Cons: "LAX was not an easy navigation from terminal to terminal, as there was little info provided in flight and a serious lack of good signage or information booths at the airport."

Pros: "Entire flight there was no comfort- crew was brash and unfriendly -"

Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."

Pros: "The food was good. They had this pizza on focaccia bread that was amazing!"
Cons: "Same type of staff as my inbound flight. Some of the same folks too. Pushy, rushed, grabby, unfriendly. There were a few good stewards, but most could give 2 sh*ts about you."

Pros: "Ok selection of TV content. Pilot focussed on getting us to Perth quickly."
Cons: "Crew put lights out right after take off - hoping to shut us up and keep us out of the way. Poor movie selection due to streaming limitations (license issues for wireless streaming of content)"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and pleasant. Came around often to make all was ok. Seats were comfortable for a flight that long with the pillows and blankets provided."
Cons: "The fact that it took off a half hour late. This was blamed on a passsenger and their paperwork. While I can appreciate they took a little extra time that amount was in my opinion too much. With running that late along with the grounds crew taking over an hour to get the bags off the plane, we along with many others missed our connecting flight. Based on the oh well attitude of the supposed manager at American Airlines/qantas I won't be taking qantas on my next trip."

Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"

Pros: "Thanks Qantas for a great trip home. Good food and service."
Cons: "The new uniform look is terrible."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Point a to point b with no hiccups."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and had no self awareness. 2 times where I wasn't finished with my drink and they grabbed it right out of my hands. I was grabbing it so they could clear everything else but they took it as me trying to hand it to them. Both times I told them I was still drinking that and they disregarded it and threw it in the trash without hesitation. It's like they were robots on autopilot. Also, the male attendant in my row would always bump me pretty severely with his bum while grabbing things from the cart."

Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."

Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."

Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"

Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

Pros: "Once on the plane, the seats, meals and service was great"
Cons: "The lounge was horrible. Crowded, lack of choice for food and drink. Not even crisps available, just stodgy white bread sandwiches and some deep fried (frozen) samosas. Nothing in any way healthy, nothing meat free. The service was however a very high standard, but the staff only had what they had to work with. This flight is always full, so I don't understand why Qantas does not fix this problem."

Pros: "The inflight service was great - friendly attendants and great food. The washroom was checked throughout the flight and was still in great shape by the end of the trip."

Pros: "Movie selection was excellent"
Cons: "They missed giving me a chocolate!"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "I hadn't had time to organize Australian currency before flying from Beijing. The flight from Sydney to Brisbane did not take credi card."

Pros: "Gf food was good"
Cons: "Tight searing"

Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."

Pros: "Great business class hard product"

Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Good service, on time"
Cons: "Coffee, not good enough"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean and tidy. Fast and reliable. Grand cup of tea too. Would recommend and would fly again. Different Safety demo got my attention."

Pros: "I like the services"

Cons: "I asked for coffee after the first meal service but it never came."

Cons: "The check in process for baggage at Sydney."

Pros: "Service and food where good"
Cons: "The TV screen was not responsive and headphones outlet was mest up at both seats on each flight. When you plug in headphones you get only one speaker working or non at all. We couldn't injoy intertaiment consel at all."

Pros: "The entertainment had a great selection"
Cons: "I would have liked another round of drinks. Also people were still walking around and to the toilet when the fasten seat belt sign was on..."

Pros: "Awesome service!"

Cons: "Flight was late and Sydney departures chaotic AND CROWDED"

Pros: "Crew were amazing, food was delicious"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed with no explanation, we sat once boarded waiting to take off not knowing what the further delay was, ended up arriving and clearing customs an hour behind schedule. This is becoming more common with my flights with Virgin Australia."

Pros: "I was able to sleep"
Cons: "Making sure there was a vegan food option and the crew knew."

Cons: "Waited a long time for the catering crew before we could board. Once in the air, very smooth, friendly, professional."

Pros: "Food was unexpected and good, healthy"

Pros: "The food was pretty damn good Staff were friendly"

Pros: "Quick, efficient, all you want and need for a flight to Melbourne."

Cons: "Missed my flight due to lost luggage"

Pros: "The service on board was excellent and the flight atendants really nice"

Pros: "I arrived home safely!"
Cons: "The hostess ran out of tea and when I asked for a top up she did not come back"

Pros: "Seats reclined comfortably but were definitely cramped & crew was pleasant. I got my first choice on meals in both economy x while sitting in the front while headed to Oz and regular economy when sitting in the back on the way home."
Cons: "Only one drink service included, which came with the first meal. The rest of the options were water throughout the flight until breakfast when juice or coffees and teas were offered. Entertainment was a little dated, including HBO series from the early 2000’s rather than newer shows. Flight was an hour late without explanation & there wasn’t the starry night sky that I heard so much about. Overall I’d fly again if it was a good flight deal but I wouldn’t specifically seek the airline out when planning another trip."

Cons: "No organization in check in process. Staff unfriendly and unhelpful. No control over situation."

Pros: "Plane was pretty empty in economy so I was able to lie down to sleep a little"

Pros: "everything"

Pros: "Crew was good, and water was served frequently."
Cons: "Got out late from Sydney and got stuck in a holding pattern in Bali. We had to take a shuttle to and from the plane was was cramped with screaming children. Due to the delay we got stuck at immigration for 50min. We weren’t told about the entertainment until already on the plane when we couldn’t download the app."

Pros: "friendly and polite staff all was good"
Cons: "passengers with large carry on bags fill up overhead lockers by the time you get to your seat they are already full with peoples bags that are nowhere near their seat allocation."

Cons: "When booking nothing was said if you are traveling short hours like 3 or less even you are traveling international you have to pay for every baggage that you have to check in so we were surprised that we have to pay $230 for the 2 package we check in . Last time we have to use this airline"

Cons: "I usually buy Eco X seats but this time forgot."

Pros: "Everything was great. On time and very nice service Thanks"

Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew. Check-in was simple and quick."
Cons: "Boarding calls and process seemed a little disorganized. No in-flight entertainment system, only boy device, but with no ability to charge in-flight, battery length became a problem on a 3 hour flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No entertainment no food or drinks"

Pros: "Good Service"

Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Smooth landing. All you can ask."

Cons: "Everything was absolutely wonderful. No complains here!"

Pros: "Such a comfortable flight. No complaints at all."

Pros: "Boarding in Sydney was easier than anticipated. Crew were good"
Cons: "Stop off in Darwin? Really? Star Alliance is a bit of a joke-poor coordination between VA and Air NZ. No lounge access given we’re Air NZ elite members"

Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."

Pros: "Seats, crew, boarding normal"
Cons: "No entertainment, food or charging port"

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and as we were overseas and did not know we had been put on a flight 4hrs earlier and as we got to the airport to later than that earlier flight had to buy new tickets with another airline. We are very disappointed as it cost up extra money."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled, no compensation, had to find somewhere to stay, travel to and from airport for a flight the next day instead."

Pros: "Overall service is excellant ."
Cons: "not really."

Pros: "The staff was lovely. Flight was on time, smooth and landed a bit early."
Cons: "Not the airline's fault, but the woman sitting next to me was so large that I was squished against the window. And I couldn't fully put my tray down because of her leg size. I feel terrible complaining about it. She did warn me. But it was very uncomfortable. Luckily it was just an hour's flight."

Pros: "Baggage price"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent cabin attendance ratiio to passengers."
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Very little, again delayed in leaving resulting in arrival quite late"
Cons: "Unknowlingly dropped teeth which went under the seat and Virgin has no means of contacting airport to put mind at rest after flight and phone contact almost impossible as staff unable or unwilling to assist. No phone number in directory, no phones at airport. and in an emergency no way of contact and no one willing to do anything to assist. Food better but still too much rice. Long boring flight with no entertainment in flight. Very Very Disappointing Robert Richardson 0895930984"

Cons: "On a long flight, lack of drinking water during the flight, need to improve on this. Lack of communication needs to be improved"

Pros: "So late and they not Help in my petition"
Cons: "Be more organized"

Cons: "As it was a short flight it was ok but their system of checking in/ baggage drop off is really poor and disorganised. Everyone was queuing together for baggage drop, checking... it was a mess and took ages. It’s unfair on those who have already checked in online because you were ended up queuing with everyone else."

Pros: "individual set of headphones and screens for entertainment"

Cons: "the process of boarding no annoucement of gate change"

Pros: "The flight was on time & smooth"

Add to the narrow seats is the design of the seat and armrests themselves and you don't have much space at all. No way I was going to be able to work on my laptop in this LATAM business class seat."

Pros: "Departed exactly on time & arrived early. Excellent!"
Cons: "Check in / bag drop was very slow and impersonal. Cabin service restricted to tea, coffee, or soda - for a 3 hour flight (5am-8am). Cramped seating."

Cons: "Charger $190 for a second check in bag of 7kg. Extremely rude staff. Terrible food. Never fly with them again!"

Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"
