Boarding instructions on one leg of my journey were not well communicated at the gate (Melbourne to Auckland)

Boarding instructions on one leg of my journey were not well communicated at the gate (Melbourne to Auckland)

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Ordered a vegan meal for flight companion pre-flight; we *both* received a vegan meal (it seems like people with incompatible diets cannot book their flights together). Flight seemed to have run out meals since a random third person in my row requested an extra meal and was told they were out. Flight etiquette of other passengers would have been nice; for example, it was also fairly unsafe for a father and child to keep walking up and down the aisles, let alone the bumping into people they kept doing."
Pros: "On time. Like the 787."
Cons: "The vegetarian evening meal."
Pros: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."
Pros: "Well coordinated loading of plane. Good food service. Well informed.."
Cons: "Nothing.."
Cons: "One traveler was hit by car and injured prior to the trip. Could not get a refund from the airline."
Cons: "Asked for an isle seat; was stuck in the middle. Way to long of a flight for that"
Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"
Pros: "wasn't able to incline my seat..."
Cons: "being able to incline my seat..."
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, the entertainment, the cleanliness and the overall experience was lovely"
Cons: "Lights could have gone fully off during a red eye international for sleeping."
Pros: "Good entertainment. Flight tracker kept breaking."
Cons: "They don't come around with beverages hardly ever (twice on 13 hour flight) and they tend to skip the window seats. They tried to kick me off an overbooked flight even though I paid extra for a picked seat and booked months ago. Mediocre food. Tiny seats and I'm only 5'5". Will never fly again."
Pros: "Everything was good except....."
Cons: "The departure gate lounge for connecting flight to Vancouver was terrible.... very overcrowded, making for an unpleasant wait and boarding experience."
Pros: "Amazing airline and seem less travel"
Pros: "Bulk head seats were great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if it had not been almost 2 hours late!"
Pros: "flight crew are good, other general categories are average."
Cons: "Boarding in both Sydney-Auckland & Auckland-Vancouver are disorganized. No clear indication of when & where to line up. No flight delay message to explain when boarding time was long overdue. In particular, for the Auckland - Vancouver flight, one ground staff was telling economy passengers (in rather rude express) they were in the wrong line except there was never announcement. Overall, disappointed."
Pros: "Small puddle jumper, but everything was well organized."
Pros: "food and crew service"
Cons: "Business class Seats are uncomfortable, cushion is not that soft, sides are narrow and too tall, hard square arm rest on the right, drink tray is behind your shoulder, hard to fasten seat belt. Ride was very rough in both directions. Not worth the price paid."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Pros: "All round excellent - great service, food et al."
Pros: "Great flight with wonderful service."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "unalbe to select seats so we were spread out"
Pros: "Entertainment was great and even leg room was decent for economy seating"
Cons: "There are no personal air vents. I was sweating for 3/4 of the flight and had to ask for the air to be turned down 3 times. The air vents they do have point inwards and do not get the window seats at all. Hope the return flight is better"
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: "The crew, entertainment, and food were all great!"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive. This puts a huge damper on our honeymoon."
Pros: "The usual "shuttle" flight between chc and akl."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."
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: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was old. Seats were old and stained. Multiple monitors did not work so no entertainment."
Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."
Pros: "We flew Air Canada’s Economy Plus from Vancouver to Sydney and Air New Zealand’s Economy Plus from Auckland back to Vancouver. NZ’s Economy Plus product is far and above AC’s. Everything from the welcome, to the meal, to the level of service is great. I really felt that NZ treated the Econ Plus cabin as distinct from Economy (including having 2 dedicated washrooms), whereas on AC it felt like we were merely Economy with better seats. I compare NZ and AC because we were so genuinely impressed with what we purchased. We would definitely book NZ Econ Plus again, and the January seat sale is a great time to do so!"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. NZ gets this product right."
Pros: "Flew spaceseat home and loved it to pieces. Tired so fell asleep for main course. Remote gate boarding but that is LAX's airports fault. Crew are brilliant as always. Good to chat. Smooth flight home - yay!"
Cons: "Nothing"
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."
Pros: "Everything FA even got our bags out while taxiing into gate"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything, space seat"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "Nearly always enjoy flying Air NZ and this was no exception. Friendly efficient service."
Cons: "Not getting a choice of meal due to being last row of seats."
Pros: "Air New Zealand may be one of the best airlines I've ever flown. Fantastic service and great flight!"
Pros: "Flew from LAX to NZ and then to Tonga. Both flights were amazing with the best cabin crews. I would highly recommend Air NZ."
Pros: "I was in Premium Economy and everything was wonderful! The food the entertainment system and extra legroom (with a leg rest!) was fantastic! I slept so well!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight was non-eventful."
Cons: "I was "upgraded " to a seat facing a bulkhead, so leg room wasn't an issue. However, I missed the last half hour of my movie, because the screen had to be put back into the arm rest for landing."
Pros: "Unlike a trip on Air New Zealand several years ago, there is actually enough leg room now so knees don't push into the seat in front. That is a huge improvement! The airplane we flew in this trip was a nice new one, very well designed."
Cons: "No complaints! Air New Zealand really seems to be putting forward a god effort, and it shows. Hope they keep up these service standards and improvements over the past."
Pros: "The service in Premium Economy was outstanding with two dedicated and attentive staff members. The food was excellent and drinks served in real glass made a difference. the space was generous, seats comfortable, and pillows and blankets of a higher quality than economy. Overall a superior experience."
Cons: "Check in was a bit of a mess with no dedicated line for premium economy, business, or first class."
Pros: "Excellent comfort in row 2 (extra leg room). Crew were very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was parked across runway and we had to get there by bus. (Terrible fumes) and then waited for more than an hour in board until we could get access to runway to take off. We did still arrive only 10 minutes late."
Pros: "flight was okay, leg space kind of small, but flight was short"
Cons: "For the original flight 704 on 6/10/16 We arrived at the airport at 9:30 am for our 11:50 flight, we were ready for boarding at 11:10 but no boarding. They finally announced the flight would be delayed until 1330 then we saw the plane with fire engines on the ground. They then said flight delayed until 1500. The problem was there was no communication from them and lots of people in line to talk with them. Infact communication was seriously lacking and needs a lot of improvement. They finally announced that the flight was delayed until 2200. I finally stood in line to confirm that they had made other flight arrangements for us to get to SF, again they didn't communicate. We couldn't get another flight until 6/11/16 @ 1845 but they did provide lodging and 3 meals. We didn't mind the delay but they need serious on improving their communication with their passengers"
Pros: "the flight was direct from CHC to MEL and it was on time"
Cons: "Even though i was booked on Air NZ, the flight was operated through Virgin Australia. This was only an issue when i tried to check in at Air NZ and was directed over to Virgin Australia. Once i found the right ticket counter to check in, i found that there was an extra baggage fee of NZ$130 that i had to pay to check my bag. Also, dinner seemed to be included for just about everyone sitting around me, and it was not included for me. I don't remember having the option of booking dinner with my flight. The agent at the Virgin Australia counter mentioned that this often happens when booking flights through the websites that are not the carrier's direct website. I have used others before, and not had these same issues... oh well - i guess that's what i get for booking through FlightNetwork.com. I'll probably go directly to airline websites in the future."
Pros: "Being almost home"
Cons: "The quality of care they give everyone that rides the plane"
Cons: "I felt that Air Canada was quite substandard. On our flight to NZ one bathroom was out of order the entire flight. Also found the staff on the return flight to be less than cordial. Also do not feel I should have to pay for headphones or a basic meal after the price of my ticket. On the return trip my entertainment screen froze and was not usable. Will probably not fly with this company again."
Pros: "I love Air NZ, near new 777, spacious, noise wasn't bad, excellent staff. Decent food choices for dinner, breakfast was merely OK. Infotainment was top notch on the new Boeing, but lots of unique Air NZ content too. All my 4 domestic flights on A320s the previous week with Air NZ were top notch too."
Cons: "No way to pay to get in to the lounge for a day pass if you dont have airline status. I got accustomed to having it traveling with a coworker with access, but flying solo, in Auckland, no status, no access, would have gladly paid for the privilege."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Aircraft are very dated"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment available."
Pros: "Lovely staff and great food"
Cons: "There was no in-seat entertainment and we weren’t advised of this in advance"
Cons: "There was no organization for those of us that were moved to that flight. Shifted from 4 different lines and luggage was not sorted out after customs. Our luggage didn't make it on our flight since someone said since it said CVG, it would be fine. It wasn't."
Cons: "We boarded very late, and had no place to wait at the gate (it was locked off) and got no explanation. My headrest broke off midflight. There were no good vegetarian options on the flight, and the entertainment system was very old and hard to see."
Pros: "Crew were great - happy & fun. Seats 19B & C"
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better"
Pros: "Good food and snacks. Great boarding and off boarding experience. Appreciated the help by Qantas ground crew who helped me with my wheelchair in Sydney."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable economy seating. Crew came by infrequently but were attentive when they came."
Pros: "On time, could have actually been early, but no."
Cons: "Uncomfortable cramped seats, selection of entertainment was dire, nothing I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Staff helpful and friendly. We got there"
Cons: "It’s a small plane without much to offer"
Pros: "Staff, seat (exit seet)"
Cons: "The Q streaming app has limited options and a nuisance to use. Better to have screens on back of seats as of old or at least a better selection on the streaming service."
Pros: "Quick!"
Cons: "We sprinted to make our connecting flight - bags didn't make it. Got woken up at 2am to collect them after a whole day traveling."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I am tall so the seats a really a little close together. It was particularly bad when the person in front reclined full for a sleep."
Pros: "Exit row seat. Lovely aircraft and cabin crew."
Pros: "The variety of television/movies was fantastic."
Cons: "Overall, the crew was rude. Short answers, extremely long delays helping passengers. A different crew in the same flight was so much better! So I know it wasn’t “typical.” They ran out of 2 of the 3 dinner options before serving us. I assumed they would start with our row at breakfast to ensure we got first pick. Nope. Served last once again (and we were in the middle, so why last???)"
Pros: "Nice friendly staff."
Cons: "The snack provided was very unhealthy, and they did not have any alcohol available."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Late arrival 15 min taxi to gate 22 mins wait for bags and$23 yo get to International Terminal. Next time fly via Melbourne"
Pros: "good"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A tiny pla? A bumpy flight. You should get the heads up about such small planes."
Pros: "The salmon entree was top notch. Veggies cooked crisp too. Morning muffin was warm. All very yummy:) Wonderful smiling crew."
Cons: "The audio headphones had patchy reception. Needed to wiggle the wires."
Pros: "Flight ran on time Cabin staff good"
Cons: "Insufficient leg room for normal sized person Food choice poor Maybe seat backs could be fixed in place (as in the US)"
Pros: "it was good to escape more than 3 hrs long, tiring journey to Sydney and also lesser wait period at Sydney"
Pros: "Great staff and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Flight was almost 1 hr behind."
Cons: "Over all service was poor. TVs weren't working either."
Pros: "More spacious and very friendly service."
Cons: "The airplane did not have any USB or power outlets"
Pros: "747-400, new seats with more legroom. Awesome selection of movies, TV & documentaries."
Cons: "Tray table would not stay up - steward gave me stickers to hold it up."
Pros: "The food, movies and service."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Assistant at luggage drop off was very pleasant and helpful"
Pros: "Checking in and bag drop process was the simplest and hassle free!"
Cons: "The flight cleanliness and food options could be improved. Some staff were super friendly while others not so much."
Pros: "Staff. Entertainment was okay . Flight arrived in less than 13 hours rather than posted 13hr 40min"
Cons: "Leg room for such a long flight is unacceptable. Connecting west jet flight was twice as much from lax to vancouver. Food was very poor."
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: "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: "Excellent service as always. Luggage was checked through to the final destination."
Cons: "The passenger next to me was too big to have the armrest down."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with QANTAS and a regular customer for many years. Why then do I get the worst seats on the aircraft (last row without reclining). These seats are often assigned to me and they are extremely uncomfortable. I booked a paid fare and did not claim points. My FF preferred seats are mid-plane, aisle. The screen had very poor contrast and it was like watching through cloth. To make it worse the entertainment system had very poor sound with long periods of frozen frames and staccato sound making it difficult to follow the plot. My wife's system (also FF) was the same. Not happy with the "special welcome" given to FF passengers!"
Pros: "The service was great. Flight got delayed a day, but everyone was well taken care of in spite of the situation. During the flight the staff was attentive and courteous. I'd definitely fly with Qantas again."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed, but that was to no fault of the staff. I'd definitely let that slide."
Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"
Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"
Pros: "The crew was always helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The kind chap behind me who insisted he had to bounce my seat every time he made contact with the entertainment screen. All night long. In hindsight, I should have asked to be moved."
Pros: "Excellent service from counter to end of flight, well dine"
Pros: "I have a nut allergy and there are no nut free meal options to select prior to my flight. Worse still the attendants didn't bother to check the meal ingredients, something that was offered to me by the budget airline Fly Dubai."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was packed full of recent big movies. I was travelling with my partner on separate tickets due to us having different final destinations. The Qantas staff was able to re-arrange our seats together for the long flight over the Pacific. We also got to celebrate New Year's twice, since we crossed the International Dateline."
Cons: "I was not a fan of the A380 prior to my flight, and was even less of a fan after. The boarding in Melbourne was chaotic- for some unexplained reason, Qantas felt the need to quarantine the seating area around the gate. This led to a minor stampede as all 5,000 passengers thought the flight was boarding. The Qantas staff at Melbourne, from the check-in desks, to the boarding crew were all apparently over-whelmed. It wasn't any better upon arrival at LAX- the baggage area was chaos as our arrival apparently caught the LAX baggage handlers by surprise. I had a four-hour layover in LAX, yet still managed to miss my connecting flight after an excessive delay getting our checked bags, the line through customs, and rechecking in through the TSA - and that was WITH an expedited screening pass."
Pros: "Staff were pleasant enough"
Cons: "Boarded about 40 mins late (understandable but still a negative), entertainment system didn't work at all the entire flight for anyone except Business Class, and the food portion (dinner apparently) was miniscule. I was starving by the time I disembarked."
Pros: "boarding was quick and efficient"
Cons: "seats were incredibly tight"
Pros: "We loved everything from check in to leaving the plane. They are a lovely bunch. Thank you, Qantas, for hiring wonderful staff members. We hope you treat them well."
Pros: "Perfect flight, departure and arrival in time. Friendly team on board. Appreciate it! Thank you!"
Pros: "The check in process was seamless - we did not queue at all The crew were great and gave us a bottle of bubbles when we landed The food was surprisingly good"
Cons: "The entertainment on board was really disappointing"
Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."
Pros: "Thoughtful and friendliness of the Crews"
Cons: "None that i can think of"
Cons: "It was late"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight got cancelled at 2:30am and then I had to try and find another flight rather than the airline automatically rescheduling me"
