Had a woman at ticket sales say f**k you to me. She also refused to give me her name to make a complaint. None of your other staff at check in had a clue on how to help either. Then on the flight, not that it's a big deal but none of the staff acknowledge you or say hello/welcome. The...

I've had two flights cancelled in the last couple of months, both from Auckland to Tauranga. The first time (23 October 2017), I was offered to board the next flight a few hours later (after a 40hr flight from the UK). But this time (9 Dec 2017) I was travelling with a friend and her 1 year old, and we...

The service was fab! The two attendants were very accomodating right from the time we boarded. Great service from start to finish! When you fly nationally, price is more of a priority than service, but both were great.

I the last 4 months I have flown across Canada, to Europe and to New Zealand. I've flown with 6 different airlines and I have to say, by far the best experience has been with Air New Zealand. It reminded me of how flying used to be. Comfortable, everything included and super friendly staff. All the in-flight amenities are included,...

Convenient flight to attend function in Christchurch for the weekend. It maintained schedule by leaving on time. Friendly flight staff as one has come to expect from Air New Zealand.

Flew to Hong Kong on Economy 'cattle class' in one of their newer planes too. First time I've felt so uncomfortable and cramped. The seats were so hard, I felt really claustrophobic and not much leg room, and I'm short and of average size. it sure felt like they were cramming as many people as possible. We ended up sitting...

we had four flights in premium economy getting to and from Tahiti. The planes were all new and spotlessly clean. Without exception the crews were delightful. Warm and friendly. The food and wine were excellent. There was plenty to eat and drink. The entertainment options were also terrific. The only problem we had was with our seat selection. Our agent...
