Airline reviews

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"

Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it."

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

Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Bulk head seats were great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if it had not been almost 2 hours late!"

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"

Pros: "All round excellent - great service, food et al."

Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."

Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "A few more beverage options, juices perhaps."

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Free wine and cheese or choices of cookies—extra servings too."
Cons: "Seats are just standard—headrest part doesn’t adjust"

Pros: "Great customer service. We flew on Air New Zealand and United, and the contrast was big. ANZ stewards showed much higher level of pride in serving their passengers."

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

Pros: "I loved everything. From the friendly service to the comfort of the plane... it was fabulous for the 12 hours I was on board."
Cons: "Nothing. I had great service and a great flight the entire ride. Well done... Best airline I've ever flown with!"

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: "The crew was great and the Hawaiian fruit drinks were a great introduction to Hawaii."
Cons: "The check in, the baggage drop off and pickup were very confusing and it made it a little stressful having to change flights. Boarding passes are also difficult to obtain through other airlines."

Cons: "Friendly and efficient"

Pros: "Snacks and drinks"
Cons: "No plug in"

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

Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."

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: "everything! Leg room, priority boarding even though we boarded close to last, snacks. That safe feeling :)"
Cons: "nothing!"

Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."

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: "The flight attendants were friendly and seemed to enjoy their job. Appeared to be very accommodating for other passengers."
Cons: "No issues. Everything was great!"

Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."

Pros: "Everything comfy spacious seats row 8"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Long distance from arrival gate to departure gate"

Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"

Pros: "Nothing in particular--it was a short flight. I did appreciate that the crew went ahead and turned on the entertainment system even though it was a short transit time (we were on a plane meant for trans-Pacific travel--only reason it was available in the first place)."
Cons: "No complaints here."

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."

Pros: "The food was good, the accommodation, although it been a long flight everything was allright"

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Great service and food. The people were super friendly. Cabin was spacious and comfortable. Great kiwi experience!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was on time, comfortable & smooth, online checkin was clear & easy. Helpful, responsive staff at every level. A million times better than my other travel leg with United (but that's nothe saying much...)"

Pros: "Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous!!!!!! Flight Crew was very friendly, helpful, and always smiling."

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: "On time service and the captain was good with updates"
Cons: "Everything was fine. Nothing stands out as great or bad."

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: "aisle seat"
Cons: "no food...not even orange juice."

Pros: "I was sitting in an exit row with tons of space. The men flight attendants were fantastic! On moved two boxes and we were able to prop our feet up. They were so attentive to us I felt as if I was in first class!"

Pros: "My first experience with Air New Zealand was wonderful! I will definitely fly with them again!"

Pros: "Being almost home"
Cons: "The quality of care they give everyone that rides the plane"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the opportunity to be with my husband"
Cons: "The seats were okay in comfort"

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: "Good movies"
Cons: "They delayed the flight like 5 different times and then the luggage took over a half hour"

Cons: "Departing closer to scheduled time - lack of flight attendants causing a three hour delay is not great at all."

Pros: "The professionalism and attitude of staff was excellent. Also in Prem Economy the leg room was good."
Cons: "The snack and drinks were not at the same standard as everything else. I expected to be better in prep economy. There was no entertainment also on board while the internet was not free"

Cons: "Not here as long as the last place but was still teribly confusing. The airport is not very new user friendly. I had to ask ppl multiple times where gates were and issues with time changes etc. Was pretty nerve wracking for a first time traveller to the states."

Cons: "UNcomfortable seats. They don’t recline."

Pros: "I had the front seat so nice and spacious spot"
Cons: "Didn't love the wait on the bus to get to the planeb but I guess that is unavoidable"

Cons: "Awful. Recieved flight delay info then recieved another email hour before flight moving it back tonoriginal time. Based on your emails my wife and daughter missed their flight. Total disaster. Makin me reconsider wver using kayak again"

Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment."

Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"

Pros: "Left on time. Employees were competent and friendly, and kept us appraised of things in flight (turbulence, etc)."
Cons: "Nothing I didn’t like"

Pros: "Flight was short and got to gate on time"
Cons: "sat for about 20 min. before takeoff with no info"

Cons: "Smooth ride"

Pros: "Checking in was simple with no problems. They made the process easy. Very courteous!"

Pros: "No entertainment and have to pay extra for any eats."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Entertainment was on personal device. Additional software was needed to watch movie."

Pros: "The bar is pretty low with United. Even being a 1K member, I am usually just hoping the flight arrives on time. This time it didn't. The crew was polite, which isn't always the case."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily UA's fault but they don't make it easy on their customers. Their mileage program has so many elite members, especially in SF that even 1K doesn't give you a strong shot at getting upgraded."

Cons: "Customer service is very inneficient"

Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."

Pros: "My seat"

Pros: "It was a long day with the delays which ended in a missed flight to Vancouver. Great service in providing accommodations and food voucher. Much appreciated. Made getting home a day later as I have another 6 1/2 hour drive to get home. Overall a good trip."

Pros: "Offered drinks and snacks."
Cons: "My suitcase's handle was damaged by the time it reached baggage claim. I will need to buy a new suitcase now."

Pros: "Overall this was an pretty average flight. The planes were on time and the service was good"

Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."

Cons: "The boarding process is chaos. By the time my group is called, an announcement is made about running low on overhead space and some may need to check in their carry ones. Happens on every United flight? On the flight from Vancouver, the wifi wasn't even working."

Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."

Pros: "Tv, food, outlet to charge phone."
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly and seats were small and uncomfortable for a 4.5h flight."

Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"

Pros: "Was a breeze to board"
Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"

Pros: "I made the connection flight, luckily, w the 5 mins I had"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about w the flight. All was well"

Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."

Pros: "Didn't have food so couldnt rate that section"

Pros: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate on the plane while they work on a problem"

Pros: "Freeway traffic made me just miss the checkin time by a hair. I had an important meeting and was hoping there was a chance to still get on (40min before flight) but that wasn't possible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."

Pros: "There were snacks & water provided."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed, and the luggage took a long time to arrive, it was 4am, and then there was a taxi line and there were no taxis available and each one took time for each passenger."

Pros: "Nice free inflight wifi entertainment, small selection and need own device. Make sure to bring your headphones!"

Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"

Pros: "The flight started boarding early enough that we had no problem pushing off from the gate on-time. We arrived early"
Cons: "The baggage took longer to arrive that it took us to hike the considerable distance from the gate and then clear passport control."

Pros: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."

Pros: "Fly upnto Vancouver BC this time."

Cons: "The seats had no infotainment system No food Cramped"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour since bags had to all be unpacked and then packed back into plane due to bags being stored improperly and not all fitting"

Pros: "I gave it a four because the airline put safety first. Though we had to change plane due to some funny sound made by the engine, the wait was worth it. The crew were helpful and the actual flight was smooth."

Pros: "Nice new 737-800, friendly crew"
Cons: "I volunteered to be bumped to a later flight, which was handled well; however my checked bags did not get transferred. The baggage desk at YVR was very helpful, but the United lost bags office was unreachable by phone. They always had very long hold times."

Cons: "Don't fly United"

Pros: "Leg room seemed better. Flight was early arriving in Vancouver. Flight crew kept us informed about slight turbulence and arrival time, Pilot landed plane very smoothly."
Cons: "This is minor: the small package of complimtary food (a sweet wafer) was not good. Something more substantial would have been appreciated for the long flight."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room. A bare bones airline."

Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"
Cons: "The plane is very old"

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "This flight was delayed an hour as United had maintenance issues with the plane. United sadly has a bad reputation for deferred maintenance on its planes in order to cut costs. They don't care about customer satisfaction, just the bottom line."
