Pros: "Swap my two reviews! This one is for the flight going to London when I had the Skycouch! That was fabulous."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The food we were served was of excellent quality which is so unusual when it comes to airline meals, crew and service was great as well. Obviously Air NewZealand have a far better understanding of what there customer base require compared to their competitors"
Cons: "Could not fault anything"
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Overall great"
Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was okay. Nothing special but not bad."
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work! Don’t advertise it if it is not working. Even setting it up is far too much work/confusing."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good"
Cons: "We got off an hour and a half late as there was an audio technical problem."
Cons: "Very Slow meal service, had to ring for sparkling water when we had asked the attendant during the meal service. Took 20 minutes."
Cons: "They have to provide better food."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Foot rest and seat recline was broken. Food was also just okay."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"
Pros: "Service and biz check in"
Cons: "i was a little disappointed in seating .... felt like a Sardine ... unlike my flight from Brisbane to Auckland on my way to LA... which surprised me,"
Cons: "Narrow Ailes make it difficult to board."
Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."
Pros: "The service was excellent. The food was wonderful and the cabin very comfortable."
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: "Special thanks to the crew member who let me try all the wines before I picked so I could get something I like. Over all, very friendly and nice"
Cons: "I'd like more movie options. I had a very long round trip flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. I had a metal piece sticking on my hip from the seat or seatbelt, not sure."
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."
Cons: "I selected two bags on kayak but when I checked in at Air New Zealand they said I just had tickets. Was forced to pay the full price for the baggage."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Awful service, they put me waiting for more than an hour to say that I was in the overbook list so they would need to include me in a flight 3 hours later in another airline. Outrageous!"
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."
Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."
Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."
Pros: "Crew working hard and going the extra mile to alleviate systemic issues like overcrowding in economy, glitches with electronics, etc. They're resolutely cheerful and efficient."
Cons: "Air NZ are, like everyone else, packing more people in a plane: 10 across in economy, where it used to be 8. No upgrade option I could exercise, even though I've got plenty of miles and do this trip every 6 months, because of the fare class I booked through Kayak."
Pros: "The crew were outstanding as usual . This flight was amazing due to over the top excellence in service especially to me as an older passenger . Probably one of the best flights ever ."
Cons: "Leaving New Zealand again"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Unclear check in counter"
Cons: "They were great"
Pros: "Everything, space seat"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service was very good, food good, seats comfortable. The sears on the way to my destination seemed roomier than on way home, maybe a different type of plane?"
Cons: "This was my first long flight 12+ hrs. And I wish I would have gotten the economy couch option. Sitting upright that long is difficult."
Pros: "Everything. Loads of leg room."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. There were plenty of movies to choose from--and I do mean a massive selection. Also, the food was better than I usually expect from airplane food. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I guess this goes for all economy class seats, but there's no room to move. I was lucky to have an empty middle seat (which merits the "good" rating over the "okay"), but even with that, maneuvering was difficult (trying to get stuff from the carry on stored beneath the seat, etc.). Things got worse when the person in front of me decided to put his chair back all the way into my face."
Pros: "Not very much"
Cons: "Cramped and squeezed in for a miserable flight."
Cons: "departed to late .. nearly missed connecting Auck- Hong Kong. Suitcase was left behind .. will receive 498 hrs later .. not good enough"
Pros: "Free cookie!"
Pros: "Good Service"
Cons: "I payed $50.00 USD on a seat so I would have a bigger seat. However, when I got into the plane, the lady that was going to be seating next to me asked me if I could change my seat with her husband; which was a regular seat. In order to avoid an awkward 12 hour flight, I agreed to change my bigger seat for a smaller seat. I felt disappointment that Air New Zealand separates parties and leaves room for uncomfortable situations. I really did not know what to do in this scenario, I paid for that seat but was in a way forced to give it a away without any refund in order to avoid 12 hours seating with some stranger's wife."
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."
Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, helpful crew, charging for devices, good meal, very pleasant experience altogether would definitely fly Air NZ again."
Pros: "I love air new zealand. Watched dr strange and had yummy breakfast. Crew very friendly"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "United Code share. Very poor boarding. Service is poor, food is poor. But compared to some US Airlines they are probably good."
Cons: "Well for every US airline. Improve everything."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Boarding and replanting was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Seats were tiny. Arm rests did not rise. Seats barely tilted back. You had to fight with the touch screen entertainment system to get it to do anything. Also it seemed like we sought out the most turbulent altitude possible."
Pros: "Beautiful air plane Nice flight assistants"
Cons: "The security person was incorrect about my Lithium battery causing me 45 minutes at the security check. I was also disappointed that even a coke needed to be paid for extra."
Cons: "Cancellled"

Food was cold and not great. Please improve.

Pros: "Crew was better and helpful"
Pros: "Everything, one of my favourite airlines"
Pros: "terrible customer service. wrong information on ticket and nobody could help me with anything. I will never fly emirates again"
Cons: "flight left very late. couldnt make up time on the way. had to struggle to make it to the connection."
Pros: "Brought me to liberty. The Kingdom of Thailand. Great Airline. Reasonable Price. Excellent treatment at Dubai international airport. TSA was also good at Liberty International Airport."
Cons: "Long boarding lines at Liberty International Airport."
Pros: "Plane was modern and more comfortable than most"
Cons: "I do understand that it was an overnight flight but the crew came around only during meals and at no other time did they check on us. I hit the call button and nobody came - call button just went off. I was in the middle next to a sleeping passenger and could not get up."
Pros: "It was comfortable flight and most importantly, our family was finally seated together in our last flight EK 420. The crew were attentive to us."
Cons: "The entertainment shows could be better as it was limited"
Cons: "Info system is not that easy to navigate So hard to find a movie"
Pros: "The Seats are very Comfortable"
Pros: "The food was very good, the seat was comfortable, the entertainment was great."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Emirates does it with class, consistently."
Cons: "Wanted some tomato juice, but they didn't have it..."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The entertainment tv didn’t stay in the right position and the touchscreen didn’t respond all the time."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No problems"

Pros: "Smooth boarding and take off on time !"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "Terrible food Outdated entertainment"
Pros: "I must admit....this is one of the best experiences I have had flying and I fly this route a lot. I was traveling with an Elder who required a wheelchair and every step of the way it was smooth and the crew was attentive."
Pros: "Good selection of food"
Cons: "Having to listen to everything in both English and Arabic"
Pros: "The cabin crew are helpful. the in-flight entertainment is superb."
Cons: "The selection of food, the seat is uncomfortable"
Cons: "No Bassinet provided. Staff was not friendly One of them was very rude. Food was not good. Couldn't get a vegetarian food"
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable because it did not convert into a completely horizontal bed. The small incline meant that I could not get comfortable and could not sleep. The screens remain on even when passengers go to sleep, making it very bright in the cabin. It would be good if staff could walk through and turn them off manually."
Cons: "Food did not meet the usually high standard associated with Emirates . The menu was bland and the main course was served cold."
Cons: "We landed in Dubabi from Athens a bit late. We were taken by a bus from the plane to the terminal which took 15 minutes. That lefte us about 30 mins before the gate closed From where we were dropped off we walked for about 15 minutes but were nowhere near our gate. We asked Emirates employees to give us a ride in the golf cars. But they all refused, until one had pity on us and gave us a ride. We reached the gate a couple of minutes before the gate closed. When we arrive in Kolkata we were told that out luggage hadn't arrived. They reached our luggage to our Kolkata home a 11:30 pm. What a nightmare. Never again on Emirates."
Cons: "I specifically booked my flight with emirates as I prefer their service,food,staff,seating and entertainment and was instead told once I arrived at Auckland airport that we were instead flying with qantas . Not impressed that we received no email or contact to inform us of this beforehand . The service itself from qantas was not bad but again some sort of notice would have been nice ."
Pros: "Arriving at Perth is always a hassle with delayed baggage unloading. Can Emirates engage their own staff to expedite this activity. The Perth baggage handlers are too slow, particularly when on penalty rates on Sundays."
Cons: "Would like to put my feet up in front of me."
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding at DXB to landing at SEA was excellent. Crew was very friendly and patient and food was great."
Pros: "The individual were uniform polite and professional, even in the economy section of the craft which is not always the case in some airlines. Boarding and deplaning via two entry / access points; something all airlines should seek to do."
Cons: "Things like the plane layout which focuses on maximizing seating space over common space like toilets (not enough) and cross craft aisles so crew and passengers could do more than just one thing at a time; issues the crew had nothing to do with. Rather plane designers being pushed to maximize seats over all else."
Pros: "eg space and the service..."
Cons: "Food wasn't great...Not many selection on old Bollywood movies."
Pros: "Excellent selection of entertainment"
Pros: "Seamless flight with usual high standrd of on-board service and food"
Cons: "Transfer distance from in-bound London flight to new terminal and very long walk to gate was a surprise and could catch some prople out due to the time it took (and I'm fit and enjoyed the walk)"
Cons: "Bumpy landing"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The amenities in Business Class were excellent - the seat was luxurious and you could actually catch some sleep. The food was gourmet and the staff was very attentive. They made a small mistake and forgot to serve me dessert but the mistake was remedied immediately when I informed them of the slip up."
Cons: "I paid a LOT of money for a Business Class seat and yet I was never notified that my flight was going to be delayed in departing by 12+ hours until after I arrived at the airport. According the the flight crew, they were notified at 9am that morning and the airline had my phone number and email, yet I arrived at the airport at 8pm because I was never notified! I spent $50 to take a taxi to the airport and now I had a 10am departure the following morning! I was given no compensation for this massive issue. Just "sorry, come back tomorrow!" I was very upset! My choices were either take ANOTHER $50 taxi home that night and then another $50 taxi back in the morning or get a $150 hotel room at the airport. So glad I paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for my Business Class seat (a big spend for me as I've never flown Business Class before but felt like a special treat for a special occasion). WTF, Emirates!"
Pros: "Coiner person was very courteous and very accommodating."
Cons: "The food selections are the same for years now."
Pros: "380's are superb"
Cons: "Flights returning to US have an expectation of poorer service. No amenities like the out-going flights (sleep mask, socks, toothbrush, etc)"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Great airlines, no issues. Everything was great and outstanding."
Cons: "NOTHING"
Pros: "Easy booking, seat availability, massive music library."
Cons: "Price,"
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "No foot rest for a long flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed every thing."
Cons: "In Kenya we was waiting to get a seat from Dubai. That was not good."
Pros: "On time on each leg of the journey. Excellent food, excellent service. In flight Internet available for just US $2 for duration of the journey. Thoughtful meal selections and gifts"
Cons: "Seat selection is very constrained 48 hours before journey, even for passengers booked together on same ticket. Would strongly recommend that automatic default seating selection for passengers booked on the same ticket should be for all of them to be seated together, right from the time the ticket is paid for rather than having to individually select where each passenger sits."
Pros: "Emirates has the best crew. Very professional, providing excellent service."
Cons: "I liked everything. This is a great airline!"
Pros: "Timings were perfect for flight landing and departure. Cleanliness was there."
Cons: "Service was very poor. Asked for warm water 3-4 times - no response.. Asked for green tea - no response."
Pros: "To start with, the friendliness of the handling crew. They couldn`t be any better. I haven`t any better words to describe them. Friendly. Make you feel good, even if you are 76 yearsold like me. Bravo young ladies, BRAVO, and Bravo to the Emirates company. I know with whom to fly from now on. Thank you!!!"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike. Everything was perfect."
Pros: "FOOD WAS GREAT"
Cons: "BOARDING WAS BETTER THAN MANILA BUT STILL NOT GREAT - NEEDS MORE COMMUNICATION"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude flight attendant. Disgusting!"
Pros: "Crews are amazing"
Pros: "Good leg room, nice food, and friendly professional staff."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic."
Pros: "Exellent food service and comfort Will use Asiana in my future travels Had my best travel experience in years"
Pros: "The new aircraft A380 was so comfortable."
Cons: "Looks like the crew weren’t pleased with their job. Poor selection for the Hollywood movies. With such a nice aircraft would expected much better service."
Cons: "flight delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "Efficient staff. Well mannered and easy to communicate with."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was cancelled. There was no proactive communication from Kayak or Asiana about the situation. We had to cancel and rebook ourselves."
Pros: "on-plane service is good"
Cons: "back-office support is very poor. for example their online flight info system is faulty, they cannot figure out the date the plane arrives! mo kidding."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"
Pros: "Great service. Good food. Excellent entertainment options. Coach had widest seats I've ever sat in. Asiana is always my first choice for China-LAX."
Cons: "There was loads of turbulence, but it was handled well. And frankly, an airline can't control air conditions. So I have no real bad things to say about this flight."
Pros: "everything is great.."
Cons: "staff gives a little bit of drinks specifically water.."
Cons: "That they gave up our seats when I already confirmed and picked them a few months ago when I purchased the ticket. I was told the airplane changed and our seat assignment is different. They wanted me and my 80 year old Mom siting in different places. I refuse and explained she can’t be by herself and showed my confirmed itinerary seats. She then found seats for both of us to sit together."
Pros: "The crew was very polite"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Limited entertainment"
Pros: "The service crew was outstanding!"
Pros: "It’s difficult to choose what part of the flight was the best, but the overall experience will make me come back for more. The check-in process took very little time. The flight staff was friendly and courteous and had a smile throughout the flight. The lighting was so much brighter than with the first and second legs of my flight and the plane was very clean, to the point where one could eat off the floor. the in-flight entertainment, clothes rack, charger, and remote controller were all right in front of you instead of being tucked in by your side. The food quality was savory and refreshing. I should have asked for a second meal as it was that good even for a short economy flight."
Cons: "the salad and desserts were excellent, as was the chicken and rice, but I would have appreciated a choice for my main menu selection."
Pros: "Footrests"
Pros: "The flight attendants were all helpful and nice, which is rare."
Cons: "Of course flying economy for a long haul is pretty dismal. One the way back the bathrooms did not have running water. ewww! they let a bottle of water for people to use; no thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly. The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding is always disorganized. I didn't eat the food because it didn't appeal to me. The seat was lumpy and really compact."
Pros: "Nice and very good excellent"
Pros: "Kind and professional service."
Cons: "Food I like to have was run out so I had to eat whatever available."
Cons: "In compare with PVG - ICN section, the ICN - LAX section meal food was poorly prepared."
Pros: "the food we have been order is great.the flight overall goes smooth and we landed safe in Seoul. the service crew did there job. thankful for this trip im satisfied. for the pilot he did a great job."
Cons: "nothing, just wish you can serve also warm drinks,like, tea or coffee instead cold drinks only.that should help the passenger who has stomach problem during flight. thanks"
Pros: "Customer service was good and complimentary food was served during flight. Compar to other airlines require’s me to purchase and with card."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The service, foods"
Cons: "The servers were very nice. They were always willing to help with all passion. The foods on board were decent. I love it how they had Korean traditional foods and American foods for the choice! I had 2 free bags checked with 22kg for each which satisfied me. Also I brought 2 small carry on bags. The only thing is the English of some servers were not really good. Sometimes they didn't understand what customers said. But I think it is just fine"
Pros: "Meal was surprisingly fresh & tastey."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable. Entertainment system minimal selection."
Cons: "They left my bags in Korea I had no change of clothes!! Arrived in the morning I was told my bags would show up later on at midnight!! So I missed my flight to an other island totally screwed my vacation!!!"
Pros: "After flight. No jet lag always a problem for me."
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Everything! Food, the seat, entertainment everything! I cannot ask for more. Plus points for the cabin crew of flight OZ271, they are the best! ❤️"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Entertainment and courteous crew"
Cons: "Food was OK not the best. Seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "We really enjoyed the size and comfort of the Airbus 380. Very quiet and powerful as we crossed the Pacific Ocean. The crew were very helpful and always friendly throughout the entire 11 hours back home."
Pros: "Nothing, very poor service"
Cons: "Food, service, delay at airport"
Pros: "My nabour was having a bad cold. I informed the stewardess that I was concerned because as an 84 years old man can't afford to hhave a cold. Later the Supervisor resited me with compassion that made me feel the whole crew wasj just wonderful."
Cons: "My nabour sick lady and I am having symptom of cold. Martin."
Cons: "A crew never gave me my can of soda"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly nice. They kept the flight quiet which was incredibly appreciated. The only downside was a long wait for luggage in Chicago, but that probably had very little to do with Asiana.."
Pros: "the service of the onboard crew"
Cons: "the flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight wasn't a problem but I lost a day of my vacation due to their "mistake. And I was told because I didn't act on iron 24 hours it's my problem."
Pros: "Overall, most liked , the food"
Cons: "Nothing encountered so far"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The plane crew was awesome"
Cons: "But when I did my check in it took so long because neither of the asiana staff knew the condition or policy of my quantas itinerary. I don't know if it was the system but they should have managed better the situation. At last they took care of it but lost so much time. Besides everyone got nervous and I felt a little uncomfortable."
Pros: "Never take Asiana ever again"
Cons: "Boarding personal"
Pros: "Crew was greatest part of this flight, as they were very friendly and attentive. The bread was warm and tasty."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late departing; plane was old and did not have lie flat seats in BIZ; luggage was damp when it arrived; food was very bland tasting; entertainment system was not very clear and was difficult to control."
Pros: "Very good service"
Pros: "All the usual good things with Asiana -- flight attendants, politeness, efficiency in the cabin, good food."
Cons: "Upon arrival back in Seoul, the bridge would not work properly. We had to wait on the airplane for 45 minutes, causing all of us to miss the last buses from the airport to our neighborhoods. What is usually a 12,000 KRW bus ride turned into a 130,000 taxi ride. (The jimjilbang downstairs was full.) If they had brought out stairs and buses immediately, instead of waiting so long, we might have made it to the buses."
Cons: "the flight was late 30'."
Pros: "Korean meal was great!"
Cons: "Outlets for charging phone would have been nice."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "The meal selection and seats are not comfortable. It would be nice to have wifi and phone chargers on all flights"
Pros: "Super well trained staff. Even though my wife and I sat in economy coach, we still felt very warmly received and respected. The food was excellent."
Cons: "The seats need improved cushioning. They were insanely firm. Perhaps they did not consider the comparatively expansive American butt when they were first designed."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Blankets and pillows were ample and already at the seat."
Cons: "Food was worse than what I had come to expect from Cathay Pacific. Drinks were less frequent. Restroom facilities were not well kept over the course of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly , Seats were fine ."
Cons: "They only had one choice of pork roll , Which was not. Good , As I m a Muslim , I couldn't eat on the flight . More food. Options"
Cons: "Quality of Indian food"
Pros: "the crew was professional and efficient on board the plane."
Cons: "seat space was tight. it was hard to get comfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable seats in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline but moved to a vacant one to sleep. USB charging points didn’t charge my iPad."
Pros: "LOVED the cup of Ramen anytime snack and curved utensils for eating on a moving plane, genius! Service and quality of product is great. If possible, I will always Choose Cathay Pacific airlines over any US Legacy Airlines to Asia any day!"
Cons: "Stop shrinking the check-in luggage size and allowable weight every few years. It's a nuisance to have to buy new luggage every few years when perfectly working luggage has to be thrown away because of size requirement shrinkage."
Pros: "The seats are fairly comfortable, and the service was great."
Cons: "The economy seats are obviously not great. The extended legroom seats are still quite narrow, though the legroom is great."
Pros: "The onboard crews were excellent. The entertainment was good too. However, the HK check in counter staffs were terrible, rude, condescending, unprofessional. They left bad tastes in our mouths and ruined the whole trip experience."
Cons: "Cathay HK check in counter staffs need to be courteous, respectful, and professional. They need to be trained not to be rude, condescending, disrespectful, unprofessional"
Pros: "The dinner was one of the top two I've ever had on a plane and I've flown business class around the world."
Cons: "I just don't fit comfortably into the pods and for a 14 hour flight that's a pain in the neck or lower. The seatbelts must be adjustable to allow a pod user to roll on his side."
Pros: "was upgraded to a very comfortable flat bed seat been a very long while a cx flight was on time"
Cons: "food quality and entertainment system choices are poor - flight attendants constantly on the pa for meaningless messages that given in languages"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and premium economy seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Clean the toilets more regularly. One time, the floor was wet and not much paper left in the holders."
Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Entertainment, restroom facilities and toilettries"
Cons: "Training for flight attendants"
Pros: "Good meal and serve more food"
Cons: "Line up to the plane shouldbe in short time"

Cons: "Economy seats are so cramped that the couple (who were strangers to me) seated next to me (i was in the window seat) decided to 1) one would sleep prone on the floor in the foot portion of our row; and 2) the other would rest his head on ME and the armrest, stretching out on their seats. Greeeaat."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "The airline stewardess are nice Smile"
Cons: "The Cx892 restroom floor was wet, the paper towels kept falling down, the sink was got stuck"
Cons: "Seat recline marginally more than in economy, but 2x+ the price. Boarding process for PE abysmal. Food - slapped on a tray."
Pros: "Cleanliness and no disruptions"
Cons: "The crew were slow to clear the food trays"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were great, entertainment had lots of options"
Cons: "They only had this tasteless shrimp slop leftover by the time they got to me for dinner. I didn't eat it and asked for a snack after and was refused. Other than being hungry it was great. The next meal was fine also."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "None in particular"
Pros: "Great food, great movie selection."
Cons: "Delay in serving wine for 12hr flight, then did not refill wine with dinner service. Also ran out of breakfast dim sum."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "That they continuously made mistakes and wasted my time and money. Let alone no sleep and carrying everything to 3 different terminals not completing my trip on any of them. Now I’m spending Valentine’s Day alone in a hotel in Hong Kong instead of meeting my gfs family and sleeping with her the first time in Manila."
Pros: "This flight was 16 hours long was very very cold for about 5 to 6 hours needed jackets extra blankets very uncomfortable for that time frame"
Cons: "I loved everything except for the freezing temperatures for 5 to 6 hours"
Pros: "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
Cons: "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."
Pros: "I was told there would be WiFi on the plane from Chicago to Hong Kong. There was not. Very disappointed. It was hot and not a lot of air circulation. And the seats are hard."
Pros: "Flight staff was awesome. They were all so thoughtful and extremely positive. It made a long trip so much more enjoyable!"
Cons: "Nothing! Super pleasant experience"
Pros: "Crew were excellent, taking the time to introduce themselves and always responding promptly to requests"
Cons: "Service at times seemed a little disorganised. A minor issue though when compared to the overall service"
Pros: "Really good service, food, and entertainment."
Cons: "Should have WiFi on plane for long flights like mine (16hours +)"
Pros: "Food better than qantas Good leg room Very attentive attendants Good range of movies"
Cons: "It was pretty good for the price"
Pros: "In flight service was excellent. Food was great. Good variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. Could not hear which rows were being called up and the line was really long."
Pros: "Even though the line to board seemed massive and very long the crew boarded everyone very quickly and timely I anticipated a very long wait and in reality it wasn’t"
Cons: "Nothing stood out negatively"
Pros: "Upgraded to business class 2 twice. Great service and caring staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Enough space for legs, great VOD, good food, excellent service."
Pros: "Blankets and good movies and very kind"
Cons: "Sometimes too cold"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean toilets, great service"
Cons: "Entertainment system is a little bit outdated. Not as good as was on the other flight where you can search for movies by keyword."
Pros: "I managed to miss my flight in Hong Kong (my mistake) and Cathay managed to get me onto the next flight. Thanks Cathay!"
Pros: "It was clean. Service was prompt, but my earlier flight was better because attendants were more attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Bathrooms weren't cleaned as often. Toilet seat covers were out both times I used the bathroom (same). Drinks were okay."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Food. Need veggies"
Pros: "Flight attendant spoke good Mandarin and was willing to continue to speak it even to someone who didn't look like a Chinese speaker - unlike some Chinese airlines where they launch into English assuming that if you don't look Chinese you can't speak Chinese."
Cons: "A glass of wine or beer would have been lovely."
Pros: "A350 is great."
Cons: "Service was not that great for business class a"
Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Food is too simple."
Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, something was dripping on me by the end of the flight, could have been condensation? The passenger behind me had his shoes off the entire flight and put his feet in the space beside me near the window. His feet smelt like vinegar and sweaty socks. The passenger beside me was overweight and he spilled into my seat partially. All of this did not make for a comfortable flight but thankfully it wasn't too long."
Cons: "My Son's water bottle was emptied despite my protests that nobody at any airport has ever done such a thing. The water had even been okayed by the Hongkong airport 1st security point after we landed in HKG from Delhi. But the there was additional checking of handluggage again just before boarding and they threw away my Son's water. This is unacceptable. Also the food was not up to quality. I got practically the same food in both meals."
Pros: "Airport cleanliness and free WiFi"
Cons: "Excellent cabine service"
Pros: "Great crew. But, they ran out of breakfast choices early."
Pros: "Only complaint was the disembarking routine. They emptied all of business and first before coach could even begin to leave the coach cabin. I am all in favor of giving business and first preference in getting off the plane, but this was just too much, waiting for the slowest person in business to get off before a single person could leave the coach cabin."
Pros: "seat comfort"
Cons: "breakfast, coffee"
Pros: "The boarding process was easy, less hassle no extra security with lot of hassle"
Cons: "The seat amenities were below average. 14 hr flight with no power outlets - was surprising"
Cons: "Jam packed flight. Qantas is squeezing people in and squeezing the profits. Happening way to frequently now."
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Boarding time"
Pros: "The service was friendly and attentive, the food was good, the legroom was amazingly good for coach, and there were lots of good movies available. Really great all the way around."
Cons: "For such a long trans-oceanic flight, I am used to the cabin crew coming around with drinks on a regular basis to keep people hydrated. That didn't really happen on this flight; I had to get up twice and walk to where the crew were hanging out (in a closed-curtain area) and ask for water."
Cons: "The seats were really cramped"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Economy class seats are never super comfy, however, they were just fine."
Pros: "Everything was fine, a bit late taking off but the time was made up"
Pros: "Nice crew, surprisingly fresh food."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment"
Cons: "Timely"
Pros: "The crew was amazing , the seats comfortable abd the food and refreshments very good."
Cons: "It would be better if there was a media screen between Sydney and Perth."
Pros: "Sitting in an front isle seat with leg room and the helpful nice sterward"
Pros: "I had to change flights to LA."
Pros: "The friendly crew, space for my legs and the food."
Cons: "The entertainment gadget was faulty."
Pros: "Not much to like other than access to Cathay pacific lounge at SFO Over booked about 50 seats fights in the aisles security on board blamed on a computer glitch delayed over 2 1/2 hours Business class old uncomfortable seats. After flying Singapore business last week I was appalled at what quantas had for the same price I’m dreading my flight back home on quantas I won’t fly them again"
Pros: "The movie selection was broad and current."
Cons: "There were plenty of movies to watch, but having more would be awesome!"
Cons: "Seat backs recline violently and require help from behind to put upright. Cabin crew was less than interested in passenger service . Seat space was less than proper."
Cons: "An old plane for a long haul to Australia, uncomfortable seats, freezing temperature in the cabin, mediocre food. Not what a traveler expects in business class in today’s travel world."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."
Pros: "Service and attitude"
Cons: "Very long flight"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, after 5 hours of waiting for updates. So we are still stuck in Sydney."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."
Pros: "Qantas provides a nice welcome when your board domestic flights in Australia like the one we took today between Brisbane and Sydney not just on their international flights. They greet you when you board, don't feel like a number like domestic flights in the USA be it American, Delta, United, or one of the others. They provide free premier movie access, serve a nice warm meal and drink, and make you feel welcomed - Keep up the great work Qantas, you could give the USA airlines lessons on how to treat passengers."
Cons: "We did not get on our flight because we weren’t notified of the time change. Extremely dissatisfied with customer service and the overall airline."
Cons: "Service in the cabin was very bad all the staff look lost they had no idea what the wher doing like first day on the job with no training"
Pros: "Great, attentive staff. Good selection for entertainment."
Cons: "Food was great but service to middle row is awkward for a family of 4 when half get their food and the other half waits."
Pros: "It was nearly impossible to get in or out of our seats when the chairs in front of us were reclined. When they are straight up it was no problem. Legroom was ample and the blankets and pillows were a nice touch."
Cons: "It was just TOO COLD! I had the sniffles for four days after arriving. The reclining seat didn't have much lumbar support."
Pros: "Relatively roomy"
Cons: "Awful baggage claim process. Plane has landed for one hour and still no mention of which belt you can retrieve it. Qantas is horrible in customer service."
Pros: "The Pilot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Had to get off the plane to get a visa. Delayed even more when we arrived in Australia. Didn’t have a gate ready when we landed. Lost my luggage in a flight to Brisbane."
Cons: "Rigid with assigned infant seats. Would not move us to bassinet bulk head area though we would pay for it. Flight went well regardless."
Cons: "floor of plane not clean full of crumbs"
Pros: "Friendly Service and free drinks"
Cons: "Long flight"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Good food on the plane; friendly staff."
Cons: "Horrible accomodations; I've never been in a flight this tight before. It was miserable the whole way. Even Southwest is roomier. I should have taken an American carrier. Space is the number one priority on a flight across the Pacific, and Qantas really doesn't understand that. I've taken Delta, American, and United across both ponds. Stick with them! After all, I can make my own food."
Pros: "Relatively smooth flight. Good snacks at back of plane. Plenty of bathrooms. Crew were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Headphone jack and USB charging jack didn't work. So wasn't able to watch any movies. Arm rest was broken. When the seat in front reclines it gets very tight forcing you to recline and do it to the person behind you. Needs refurbishing. The seats are in poor shape and are pretty tight."
Pros: "Great food and service, enjoyable flight home. Cabin was clean and seats as good as airlines are."
Cons: "What horrible uniforms...... they are shockers."
Pros: "I liked the fact that there was a water refilling station so I could get water when I needed/wanted it. The people were friendly and there were lots of times when the lights remained off so that people could sleep. There weren't a lot of interruptions during the flight so people could rest or do what they wanted! I also like that Quantas is associated with American so I got a ton of miles!"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't stay upright so any movement made it go back, which was fine for resting but when eating or sitting up, I kept falling back. Luckily the person behind me was understanding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hr 30 min because of catering issues. Because of that only one hot meal for 14 hr flight. Diabetic food was the worst I ever had. My prepaid seat for extra $35 AUD wasn't available. The seat was uncomfortable and the pillow was huge - I had to put it on a floor. I am surprised why Qantas is rated #9 among best airlines for 2016. I will try to avoid Qantas in the gorier."
Cons: "Food: Japanese fried chicken was soggy. Economy space is cramped, and stuck next to a guy who invaded into my space and guy in front leant his seat back. Overnight flight but couldn't sleep when it was so cramped (when usually I can without problem on other flights)"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "It was a safe flight."
Cons: "I have flown Qantas several times across the Pacific and have had much better experiences on the longer flights. Everything was delayed, the plane was small, and the food was pretty bad, even by airplane food standards. I just expected more given what I have come to expect from Qantas."
Pros: "Good food great service nice and friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Such an arduous and indirect flight route and entertainment screen was non viable but always good to fly with Qantas!"
Cons: "The reason for an OK overall is that I left a personal item on the flight. I contacted the airline an hour after my flight landed and they showed no urgency to recover my item that had a lot of value to me. If they could have pages the cleaning crew on the ground, I'm sure I would have recovered my notebook. Instead they told me to check 4 hours later. When i did check 4 hours later, they told me to check in 2-3 days. When i checked in 2-3 days they asked if I filed a report. Which I wanted to on the same day but was told not needed. Very disappointing ground services."
Pros: "comfortable seats. Okay food. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Flights were almost all delayed. Was told I didnt have to pick up luggage during connecting flight, but did have to."
Pros: "I got a great deal on this flight, I will look to KAYAK For all my travel needs."
