Cons: "flight didn't even happen"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the food was delicious and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Boarding was awful. The staff definitely need better training at adapting with the Covid 19 situation. Especially, when it comes to unexpected occurrences regarding test certificates and sudden new regulations. Not everything is always black and white and not everyone has the same capacity to afford rebooking flights or re-testing. Treatment of foreigners in general at the LAX airport, on my flight at least, were unprofessional and inconsiderate. I generally like flying with Japan Airlines but after what I have seen and experienced personally I’m not so sure it is still one of my number one airlines to fly with anymore."
Cons: "Needs more variety of movies"
Pros: "Every thing in airplane was wonderful. I would like to recommend this airline to my friends"
Cons: "You are best ."
Pros: "I like the spirit of Christmas in some of the staff."
Cons: "Board people by section instead of a madsive line."
Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
Pros: "Love everything"
Pros: "Professional and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food quality from Jakarta is bad"
Pros: "I paid extra to get bulkhead seat. But the monitor won't stay up. So I asked for help. Flight attendant used duct tape for both my monitor and the one next to mine."
Cons: "My boarding pass was marked with SSSS and I was subjected to another security search at the gate in NRT! They laid out all my carry-on stuff in 2 long tables and swabbed both my hands. Then sent me on my way, leaving my passport on the table. Good thing I had the presence of mind to look for it!!!"
Pros: "Punctual and direct flight NRT-BOS. Time-efficient."
Pros: "I was on board with my 4 months old baby. The crew was so kind, they helps me a lot."
Pros: "Everything, the service and the food is great."
Cons: "Keep it up"
Pros: "No... no... no...."
Pros: "The service are great!"
Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Pros: "Comfortable business class seat. Flight was on time. That’s what I wanted."
Pros: "As expected everything was not overly done nor less of comfort and services. The food was Excellent quality and prepared with care. The airplane was new types and flew fast and smooth."
Cons: "The Kansai airport was huge and super fancy. Shere number of people were like the Zoo and its designed to move people through all the retail shops to get to my gate."
Pros: "So cramped. Very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "JAL has always provided exceptional value for money and top notch service."
Cons: "Have taken several JAL flight the last 1 year and this flight was significantly worse than the last few. Especially the meals."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Because of some system updating we were unable to check in online and had to wait until we got to the airport to select seats. By then, there were no decent seats available. My bladder nearly burst because the guy next to me slept the whole time. They say it will take 3 weeks to update the system. This is a terrible level of customer care."
Pros: "Service is great."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Boarded late. Took off late. Delayed 10 minutes at arrival gate with seat belt sign on."
Pros: "I really loved the food they served on the airline, along with the entertainment and the stuardesses. It made for a very enjoyable trip."
Cons: "There wasn’t anything that I disliked. Of course the seats were uncomfortable, but that’s expected for Economy."
Pros: "service was excellent. Seating was OK in spite of it being economy."
Cons: "One meal was sufficient in quantity, mediocre in quality. Other meals and snacks were skimpy in frequency and quantity."
Pros: "JAL was very flexible with me leaving a day earlier due to tropical storm which I greatly appreciated"
Cons: "would have liked more food options and recent movie selections"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff, excellent food."
Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, friendly staff"
Cons: "Beverage size could be more"
Pros: "Service was amazing and made me feel like I was in first class."
Cons: "The food wasn't good and the seats seemed outdated relative to other JAL flights I have taken on this route."
Pros: "The airplane and all"
Cons: "A little bit in the sakura lounge"
Pros: "Great friendly service on jal... my wife and I got lucky and we're bumped to business class. Would fly with them again 100%"
Pros: "Service was exceptional and good was good. Everything was to my expectations and would certainly use Japan Airlines again"
Pros: "Flight attendants and ticket agents were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."
Pros: "Very attentive and polite staff. Was given a free upgrade as well, very much appreciated."
Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the temperature of the plane. It was quite hot (felt like 75 degrees inside)"
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Japanese food not great"
Pros: "The crew on JAL is excellent. They get pleasure out of providing service to the passenger -- I was in business class."
Cons: "Business class seat on 787 is awful. Does not get to flat bed level. Really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Japan Airlines is very good. They have good service, safety, and customer care."
Cons: "Economy seats are a bit tight."
Pros: "The 787 was quieter and felt very comfortable. The take off and landing were more smooth than I remember other flights being. The seats were quite comfortable and everything was very nice."
Pros: "Service was especially good. Very professional."
Pros: "The food was delicious and interesting. Also, the flight crew allowed me to sleep through the rest of the night after dinner service was complete."
Cons: "I don't recall having seen an option for a vegetarian dinner, either when I was booking my ticket or after I was on the plane. Perhaps I just missed that part of the booking process."
Pros: "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I think my negative impression of this flight was more due to the extreme turbulence and extra hour spent on the ground at Narita, which is always a challenging airport. The meals were passable, but hardly anything to be proud of, seats were cramped and flight was pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "staff was pleasant, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "turbulence was awful."
Pros: "Good and polite crew"
Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"
Pros: "Nothing in particular. I am still alive, so there is that."
Cons: "The same as always flying on what seems to be a school bus with wings; small, no entertainment, spooky, lil uncomfortable."
Pros: "Japan Airlines is far more spacious than all domestic airlines. The food and beverage options were comparable to most airlines like Delta, United, etc, but presentation was better so they get style points. Their wifi connectivity was far better than Gogo's services, which is the provider for most domestic airlines. The real improvement compared to most my travel was the level of service. The staff was incredibly attentive."
Cons: "Still waiting for the day wifi at 30k feet is comparable in speed to at least a public cafe. Also, when will one of these airlines start providing balanced meal options that are actually palatable. JAL's food was okay, but heavy on starches and fats with low quality protein or vegetables to accompany them."
Pros: "I really liked my experience with JAL. The comfort and overall service of the flight was excellent."
Pros: "Food, good, Too Much even! Beers, sweedish meatballs, and caramel Gelato just to name a few. Actual seat comfort was fine. Stewards performed well."
Cons: "Lies, not JAL....American Airlines. Paid for JAL received American. Checking in sucked, a whole explanation would wreck this page.....could not reserve seats near spouse. ....in flight entertainment was less than mediocre....seat positioning was grueling not able to get comfortable for the 13hour trip."
Pros: "We had to come home 2 weeks early due to the virus, and Singapore airlines were brilliant at changing the flights. Even got upgraded to the extra leg room for free"
Cons: "The extra leg room seats were naff, I like getting comfy in a chair and these ones were not. The screen was too far away and the arm rests didn’t move. Also, due to my partner having to swap seats, I was sat on my own next to strangers. They slept the whole way, so the crew never disturbed them meaning I missed out on food and drinks, even when asked"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "In this fairly new plane, the rows of seats are so close together, the leg room is minimal. When the tray is lowered, you feel completely squashed in the seat. The food trays are not picked up quickly after eating."
Cons: "Security screening very slow"
Cons: "Luggages did not arrive with the flight as it should be. It got lost in Sydney from Queenstown on flight SQ 6683 operated by Virgin Australia (VA 162)."
Cons: "Satisfied service friendly staff overall satisfied."
Pros: "loved d bnew 787 dreamliner planes. loved d medium haul biz class seats."
Cons: "everything is excellent frm d check in to d lounge to the plane , crew service , arrivals and lastly baggage handling ."
Pros: "Couldn't find a problem"
Pros: "The staff is amazing and know what parents of bubs need."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"
Pros: "I do like Singapore airlines and all the rest of the airline stuff apart from the entertainment system was great!!! (Unfortunately since there was no USB or seat power my iPad fairly quickly ran out of juice...)"
Cons: "The entertainment system was soooo old. In our seats it was non-functional. The plane wasn't too full and so I scooted over to the isle seat next to mine but again the resolution on the screen was so bad I couldn't read the intro comments to the movie, etc. They desperately need to update the entertainment system on that plane."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, punctual, helpful crew."
Cons: "I don't see the point in giving out menus for economy class, especially as it's only a choice of 2 meals and one of them wasn't available anyway. It's a waste of paper."
Pros: "Friendly crew I like that a lot. The diabetes food choice ecselent Thank you"
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "Consistency of high quality service. Beef goulash in economy was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Impatient Caucasian passengers trying to squeeze past. Maybe put them further back next time! :-)"
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable bed."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."
Cons: "The desserts. The bun."
Pros: "check-in, priority lane, BKK-SKL, boarding, crew, cabin, disembark, baggage claim to cab home"
Cons: "baby crying throughout the flight"
Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"
Pros: "Comfortable, full service through the night.."
Pros: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."
Pros: "Great crew, good food (best I've had on an airplane), plenty of drinks, and a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say about this flight. Great airline."
Pros: "Best Inflight Service Best Inflight Food Best Lounge"
Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."
Pros: "Again very friendly and efficient service ."
Pros: "Crew very good as was entertainments system"
Cons: "You cannot disguise the age of the 777, 30 year old design. Noisy and basic compared to 380, 350."
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
Pros: "Crews are truly nice and patient"
Cons: "Crews are very nice, food are not really good"
Pros: "Very friendly crew & modern aircraft"
Pros: "SQ always has top quality service and that came through today."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant!"
Cons: "Cabin area warm for a 9.5 hour flight! Food selection was not much."
Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."
Cons: "Too hot in plane Food really late, 1h after special meals Entertainment system archaic, age of plane All isles seats gone as soon as checkin open"
Pros: "I love flying by singapore airlines! Firstly because its direct flight from home plus service on sq is always impeccable. Plus i can easily order a singapore sling and a campari spritz, which is so nice while watching a movie :)"
Cons: "I didnt really like the food this time and entertainment on the way back was so sad! No new movies unlike on the way there :( dont really like being woken up for meals though, would be nice if they left a note to get a meal from them once ive gotten up. Coz i was trying to sleep so i dont get jetlagged back in sg. Which i did unfortunately :( not jetlag when i arrived in rome though :)"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful. I got plenty of meals and they easily accommodated my vegetarian diet!"
Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"
Pros: "Onboard Crew was great. I sympathize that they have to rush a service on a 1hr 20min flight with turbulance."
Cons: "I have started taking SQ instead of budget airlines hoping for good service and on time travel. However, both times travelling from SQ from jakarta was delayed. Yesterday, I got home 1.5hrs later than I should have. I have also to pay for additional surcharge due to midnight cab fare. Further, when I wsa travelling to Jakarta - none of the inflight entertainment was working. So it has been disappointing."
Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Cons: "There should always be a vegetarian option on the set menu. I didn't realise I would need to pre order my meal for this."
Cons: "No room, seats too tight. So close, my neighbor spills over. Toilets too small."
Cons: "I have no complaint"
Pros: "It was a standard flight"
Cons: "did not have my meal preference even though it was on the menu and being offered to others. Screen did not work to watch shows/movies. It was an outdated plane"
Pros: "Crew staff were excellent. Food was pretty good. Overall trip was flawless including and early arrival. The A350 aircraft feels roomy. Most importantly, given the total duration of the flight, it was a pretty good experience on-board."
Cons: "The seats and especially the hand-rests on the A350 seem very slim and flimsy. The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."
Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."
Pros: "Customer service , crew was nice"
Cons: "Food was terrible out of MEL.. Didn't have any choice at all.. Tasteless , should improve"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The quality of the red wine"
Pros: "crew and service and food was excellent MJ from local staff went above and beyond to assist when i missed my connection she was kind, compassionate and efficient A+++++++"
Cons: "missed connection in Seoul. announcements should be louder, was in rest room opp the gate and did not hear any announcements for boarding text message should be sent if passenger missing."
Pros: "This was the second time that we were able to fly to Germany with Singapore airline. I will always try to fly with them in the future. I have been on numerous transcontinental trips and I rank them as number one. They make me feel like I am welcome."
Cons: "There was very little leg room for people over five feet tall. Everything else was exceptional."
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: "Entertainment and service was outstanding."
Cons: "I could have used more leg room."
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My seat 57E could not be adjusted but half way through the flight was given another seat and managed to get some sleep. In our experience Air New Zealand is tops."
Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"
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: "Amazing crew. Airline was awesome .. seem less"
Pros: "Bulk head seats were great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if it had not been almost 2 hours late!"
Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"
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: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Cons: "Due to limited internet in Rarotonga, we weren’t able to fully check in until we got to the counter. The flight in came with two checked bags and not our flight to Auckland. We were expected to pay a fee at the counter but was charged $170 for the counter checkin of one bag. This price was not listed or posted anywhere during the booking or via email for mobile check-in."
Pros: "All round excellent - great service, food et al."
Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."
Cons: "Not clear that I wouldn't be able to check a bag for my return flight. I flew to New Zealand with a large bag and then when I went to check in for my return flight they told me I couldn't check it to bring it back and my only option was to cargo it, which was not helpful being that the cargo was out of the airport and I needed to catch my flight. I was luckily able to check it on a separate flight my boyfriend was going on. But I would have either have had to leave my bag or miss my flight if he hadn't been there. It should have been more apparent that I wouldn't have been able to check it on the way back. It makes no sense to be able to bring a bag to New Zealand and not bring it back. That was very frustrating and overall I was very disappointed with this experience."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, food was great, and the overall flight experience was better than the first time travelling this airline. Airhosts/esses we’re very polite as well. Would try it again soon!"
Cons: "Airhosts/esses took a long time to pick up our trays after our meal."
Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"
Pros: "The crew were delightful. Nice cup of tea and a magnificent day for flying."
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."
Pros: "The crew, entertainment, and food were all great!"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive. This puts a huge damper on our honeymoon."
Pros: "the fare is so cheap ,service is excellent"
Pros: "I was excited to see some notorious places as we flew into Queenstown....however, I wouldn't have known the places if I hadn't been sitting next to someone that knew the area."
Cons: "I can't complain about anything with Air New Zealand....I loved each flight with them."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, arrived on time - run of the mill stuff for Air NZ. Crew very good as per normal"
Cons: "I swear the seats are getting more and more 'scrunchy'. There are more appropriate places to get almost intimate with your seat buddy."
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
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: "The customer service is stellar, the planes comfortable. I will fly with them again in the future."
Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."
Pros: "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: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."
Cons: "Captain's sense of humor."
Pros: "I was recovering from a cold and didn't anticipate having ear problems but during decent I began to experience some pain. It was all new to me as I had never been through this before. Fortunately the crew was kind and they provided a sinus decongestant in a cup for me to sniff and breath in so the smell could open up my nasal passages and it helped a bit."
Cons: "The sharp decent while arriving."
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: "Quick, efficient, friendly service"
Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, helpful crew, charging for devices, good meal, very pleasant experience altogether would definitely fly Air NZ again."
Pros: "Very Innovative. Love the Premium Economy seats. And unlike many other airlines that do Premium Economy the food is not just economy food. It is far better and as good as anything you get in Business."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Drinks were excellent including tea!"
Cons: "Breakfast could be better. My son didn't get his choice on one flight and there was not much he would eat in choices. Make it more general so even teenagers/kids can enjoy. Crew could be nicer, especially in Premier Economy when we pay so much money!"
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!"
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: "Crew was nice and clean plane."
Cons: "Wasn't aware that on this international flight we needed to do something more to get the basic services. Evidently there are classes of fares that don't rate basic food and drinks. Felt like steerage class. After they rebooted their system we were able to finally order and pay for food and drinks. Never been treated this poorly on an Air New Zealand flight."
Pros: "Timeliness, friendliness of flight crew"
Pros: "The crew were really awesome. They kept a smile the whole 11 hours."
Cons: "To be honest I had to pay for the five star entertainment and a small increase in comfort."
Pros: "Cara the stewardess was wonderful, although a code share with virgin Australia it was excellent"
Pros: "Being almost home"
Cons: "The quality of care they give everyone that rides the plane"
Pros: "Crew and all other Staff were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Don’t know"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific continues to delivery a stellar experience in first class even on shorter legs such as the soon to be discontinued New York to Vancouver flight (888/865). They even brought back Krug, which they opened on the ground no less in New York, and offer access to AA Flagship Dining at JFK which itself offers flagship dining."
Cons: "Hi do veg meal could have been better and communication about my bags could have been better ."
Cons: "Shopping items available."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50pm and it didn't take off until midnight. The many delays appeared poorly handled and communicated, and I spent an hour on the runway before takeoff."
Cons: "Customer service from the cathy pacific crew are not good at all.. I flight business to and from asia to the USA at least 3-4 times a year.. cathy pacific was such a disappointment.."
Pros: "Been flying CX for years and for some reasons this time all the staff members were excellent. From ground to air crew everyone was well informed, nice and helpful. Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious."
Cons: "Flying out from JFK is a nightmare, we had to wait for 40 mins on the runway. Not sure if airlines can actually improve that?"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Entertainment is out of date and difficult to use."
Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."
Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "Not sure why we left and arrived so late, but it was annoying to miss the last flight out of Vancouver to my destination and have to find a hotel and stay the night. I guess lesson learned on expecting flights to always be on schedule. Sometimes things happen and they’re not."
Pros: "The crew is amazing. Particularly the FA in our section was amazing."
Cons: "No outlet charging for smartphone. Only USB charging was available."
Cons: "My seat would not recline."
Pros: "the flight itself was fine. the crew is professional"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and 4 days later I still don't have it. They are not being very helpful at all in recovering it or taking responsibility for it"

Pros: "Airport checkin crew sucked, in-flight crew were fantastic!!"
Cons: "They made me check my carry on for a flight that was MAYBE 50% full... ANd If the ground handlers were actually awake when we landed in Vancouver... took 43 minutes for the first 5 bags to come out.... and another 7 minutes before anymore... WTAF!??"
Pros: "The crew was average. Few of them were hospitable and friendly."

We were unable to seat together for the long flight. On the plane, I noticed 2 family members travel together got aisle seat. I was really disappointed that Cathy Pacific allowed passengers pre-select seat in this method and has no authority or unwilling to accommodate others that flight together. Will not flight Cathy Pacific again."

Cons: "I did not like paying more than the advertised price for my airline ticket... Straight after clicking the confirmation button , I received a call and was informed that the advertised price had increased by $50. It was still affordable so I agreed to this extra charge.

Cons: "Window seat.... 9A ..... no window......"

Cons: "Smallish serves of food (dinner & light breakfast) for a long flight"

Pros: "Arrived alive."
Cons: "Sketchy plane. Too many speed changes. Left late."
Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."
