Staff are Air New Zealand's greatest asset. Friendly and sensitive to the needs and comfort of passengers. Will definitely fly Air New Zealand again.
I mentioned to the cabin staff that I am claustrophobic and was waiting for people to sit down before going to my seat. The very helpful cabin steward suggested if I would like to sit in 5C which had lots of leg room (I'm tall) and was not as oppressive. I accepted and was very grateful for the service given.
Great flight will fly Qantas again
My seat was unable to be adjusted flight attendants couldn't make it move either. I had put foot rest out and couldn't retract it. Seat 5 A
Not happy that you have to pay for a cup of water. Every other airline walks up and down the ailes offering free water!
Good value for money
Good kiwi humor and attitude in staff
Loved the Qantas Lounge!!
