Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."

Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"

Pros: "I was very impressed with the courtesy and efficiency of the pilots and crew. Staff were very helpful and polite. A very good experience overall."
Cons: "The stewardess making announcements overhead on the PA system speak very softly and can be very difficult to hear and understand in addition to their accent. I know the safety cards are available for that info but the "in-flight" announcements are the ones that I worry I'm missing important information due to my misunderstanding."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The flight is on time,service is excellent."

Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you!

I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"

Pros: "I asked for a window seat but if was not available. I was told to go to an information desk which were not too close and it turned out that they couldn't help."

Cons: "Can't think of any"

Pros: "The aircraft was clean and boarding went smoothly. The flight was late but the staff seemed courteous, polite, and apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "I thought I had ordered a vegetarian meal when I booked the flight roughly 1.5 months prior to my trip. However, when the meal was being served, there was only a chicken or pork option and my vegetarian meal had either not been properly booked or had been forgotten. When I informed the staff, I was asked to show proof that I ordered a veggie meal. I could not pull up my email confirmation as we were flying and there was no internet access. I had to lug my bag out of the overhead and search for a print out confirmation. I had not come prepared with the "evidence" the stewardess wanted. While the staff tried to be polite, I also found them to be quite rude, demanding that I produce evidence. Could they not have simply given me an extra salad without all the fuss? I felt I was being treated as a criminal for requesting a veggie meal that had, unfortunately, not been recorded in their system."

Cons: "I wish they flew all over the USA, American carriers should be ashamed"

Pros: "I loved the crew, for the most part the food, and the large screen to."

Pros: "SERVICE was amazing and everything was very smooth"

Pros: "Great entertainment options. Didn't try the food but I never do. Friendly and helpful staff."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Their plane"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."
Cons: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."

Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"

Pros: "My first experience in business class"

Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"

Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."

Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible.

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

Cons: "One of the flight personnel I felt was very rude"

Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"

Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"

Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."

Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."

Pros: "No bags on an international flight?! I had to pay $375 for 3 bags. Last minute changes with a layover, instead of a 3 hr flight it was a 6 hr flight and NO FOOD not even available to purchase.... very confusing very disappointed...."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."

Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."

Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."

Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "The food was GREAT! The flight crew was social, nice and I felt apart of the family. The seats were comfy. I brought my own movies on my iPad but I used their free movies instead."
Cons: "Nothing negative"

Pros: "We fly a lot and have flown American, European, Asian airlines but this has to be the best experienxe ever. First, their checkin is all automated, even baggage. That makes the lines really short. Their staff standing by to help at every moment. When we used another airline in Australia Jetstar, we waited in line for one hour and then were scolded for being late! We even had to pay for our water and the staff took turn scolding us over our overhead bin stuff. Boarding of NZ airline was so comfortable, without pushing or crowds. Staff always welcoming you with a smile. Seats are wide and we were given free drinks, free headohones, and wait for it.... free dinner! And all served so politey and in the most gracious manner as if we were their guests. We were so taken back by their service and this was the aecond time we have flown with them in 10 days. My young daughter thought may be their staff gets paid more so they seem to be so much more happy. I also think that there is something when you dehumanize your customers by charging them for water and being uncaring to their needs. The staff also starts to treat the customers as cattle. Besides Southwest Airlines, I havent come across one another airline where the staff treat their custmoers with reapect while charging them for water. So airlines, take note. I would pay $50 per ticket extra just to be in NZ airline."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable."
Cons: "Would have liked in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Check In Issues related to code share flight"

Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."

Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"

Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."

Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"

Pros: "The plane and staff were very welcoming."
Cons: "The connection was very tight. Luggage was lost, but was sent to us the same day. It was left in Auckland,accidentally."

Pros: "Love the variety of movies etc available on every flight."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, clean and comfortable."

Pros: "It was okay, we made it to Sydney safe and sound, but I'd expect that anyway. We had works deluxe seats. Food was terrible service was on par with the terrible American carriers. The very first New Zealand air flight apparently set the bar too high. It was fantastic! The other 3 were nothing in comparison."

Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."

Pros: "Quick, efficient, friendly service"

Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"

Pros: "Awesome crew! Tasty food! Comfy seats!"

Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."

Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"

Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."

Pros: "Crew professional. Clean. Safety and security and health prioritized."
Cons: "food could have been better."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very attentive throughout the long flight, offering water and orange juice often. Good selection of movies was available."

Cons: "Seats are so tight and close to each other."

Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"

Pros: "Everything."

Cons: "Lots of noisy babies / young children"

Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor service and flight was dirty"

Pros: "The crew in the plane was very supportive and assisted us with the baby and have provided all possible comfort"
Cons: "we have booked a wheelchair to carry old grandmother with permanent injured hand and the baby to the plane, and we have confirmed availability of the same by calling QA office in Qatar. However QA did not provide a wheelchair during check-in at Paris Charles de Gaulle for whatever unjustified reason"

Cons: "Refund my ticket"

Cons: "Bad service for wheel chair. No wheel chair at Doha Airport! Need to walk."

Pros: "Crew was very active, attentive and bice, seats are wide and comfortable, food is tasty and delicious! Great experiencce!"
Cons: "If all people would remain upright, that is actually saves more space for legs then horizontal position ;)"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Q Suite is top-of-line business class product"

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

Pros: "Food was quite good along with service"
Cons: "No entertainment or tv monitors - 6 hours of no movies!!!"

Pros: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"

Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"

Pros: "Ground crew was especially helpful to my mother who could not speak English or Arabic, and had never flown before. She also had difficulty walking, so everyone assisted her in the airport and during her long connection in Doha."

Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"

Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "plane hadn't been cleaned (trash/food garbage in the seat pockets), plane was very hot"

Pros: "Food crew and entertainment were all good thanks"
Cons: "A child behind me kept kicking the back of the seat all the time and the mother did nothing about it"

Pros: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"
Cons: "I enjoyed their meal and services wanted to be Oliver Twist"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Flat bed in business. Crew as such nothing great."

Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"

Pros: "Best host staff"

Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"

Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food was good, I got the Hindu vegetarian. Also service from Nagpur to Doha is very convenient."
Cons: "It was mostly a good experience."

Pros: "very nice crew please have good dessert"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."

Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "Exceptional service!"

Pros: "service and staff was polite & friendly"

Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."

Pros: "Once staff were aware that my child was sick one staff member in particular regularly checked on the well being of my child."
Cons: "Crew only helpful when pushed to help. My child was sick and the cabin crew tried to give me food. I said that my child had just vomited but there was no offer to help me clear it up they just continued serving food to other passengers. I had to search for someone to help me to clear up and then I felt as though I was an inconvenience. I then had to look for someone to bring food for myself and other child. My other child is 1yr and 11 months and I was told they were only allowed baby food not a child meal. Although there were a few spare seats on the plane I was squashed into a full row with a 3 yr old and one year old on my lap. I appreciate that there may not have been any bassinet seats left but would have been helpful not to be on a full row as a single adult travelling with two small children. No offers for assistance with bags."

Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"

Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Craft"

Pros: "no time now"
Cons: "no time now"

Pros: "Nice and spacious aircraft."
Cons: "Some confusion on Hindu meal and vegetarian meals."

Pros: "Attention to detail and attentiveness of the staff was par excellence in the business class"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "This is an isolated experience on Qatar but a couple of the crew members had poor attitudes. One flight attendant talked down to passengers during boarding and while serving. Another flight attendant acted as if if she was being inconvenienced when asked for water. The seat did not function properly. It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."

Pros: "I was disappointed when i tried to change my departure date. I was told one price and was charged a full round trip price at the end."
Cons: "Be more clear when explaining charges and fees including taxes"

Cons: "Expect more then OK from Qatar."

Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."

Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "price and comfort"

Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Everything was fine, a bit late taking off but the time was made up"

Cons: "The plane's interior needed a makeover, as is old"

Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."

Pros: "fast trip from japan all ontime quick boarding and unloading"
Cons: "the food main meal on an australian airline consisted of meal a) sushi etc b)Japanese style chicken and boiled rice (chicken thigh full of fat and sauce was greasy) could not eat c)pasta twists with dried up sauce (could not eat) very poor quality food will bring my own next time no plain option"

Cons: "Flight from Bangkok was delay and miss the connection flight."

Pros: "I had to change flights to LA."

Pros: "Snacks and the drinks are good. Boarding are pretty smooth."
Cons: "Dinner and breakfast are not too good. We waited for long period of time for the luggages."

Cons: "Disembarking.... No gate so had to get bus to shuttle to terminal... 1 bus for nearly 1000 passengers.... Took nearly 90 minutes to get off plane."

Pros: "WiFi on board"
Cons: "Still don't like greasy toasties for breakfast but better than butcher muesli"

Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."

Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."

Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"
Cons: "Stink The usual cramped seating Long wait to deplane"

Cons: "Flight was an hour late leaving. This caused me to miss the connection in Sydney (even though its gate was still shown as open when we arrived. There were a quite a few passengers booked on the connecting flight but Qantas made no attempt to get us on board it and instead re-booked us for the next flight which was scheduled for 2.5 hours later but, in fact, left nearly 3.5 hours later. Breakfast consisted of rubber egg."

Pros: "Friendly crew Comfy space Reasonable food Boarding was easy"

Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"

Pros: "IFE for such a short flight, headset free. Cabin crew were quite pleasant. B737-800 series (Next Gen.) is a nice plane."
Cons: "Cramped. Lunch was that revolting beef & kale pocket (again!). Highest a/f of Tiger, Virgin & QF, which is fine if it’s worth it, which it most definitely wasn’t."

Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."
Cons: "The leg room is obviously minimal in economy but compared to Singapore Airlines this was cramped and when the seat in front reclines it's almost impossible to find a comfortable position if you're over 5 foot 9! food was below par."

Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."

Pros: "Overall, one of the best international flying experiences I have ever had."

Pros: "The on board staff were fantastic, very personable, helpful and friendly."

Cons: "The wheel on my bag was smashed..."

Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "We had originally booked seats that were not together but we're able to change them at the gate. We sat in the last row of the 777 which only had 2 seats on either side of the plane rather than the standard 3. The seats still reclined tho not as much as the other rows. Food was free and excellent- so was the entertainment (I watched 4 movies on the 14 hour flight). Crew was great. Alcoholic beverages were also free but we don't drink so it didn't matter."
Cons: "The flight from phx to lax was ok but it was a small plane (CRJ700) and we're big people. No amenities whatsoever except for soft drinks, juices and peanuts. Flight was on time and made the connection with time to spare."
