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!

Auckland (AKL-Auckland Intl.) to Sydney Airport Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Drink plenty of water both before and during your flight. Another wise idea is to trick your body's internal clock into thinking it's already on your destination's time by modifying your eating and sleeping habits several days before you take off. Even small changes can make a noticeable difference.
  • If your plan is to get as much sleep as possible while in the air, pick a window seat. Although the front of the aircraft generally has less ambient noise, it's also where families with young kids are often located. In any case, don't forget to bring your earplugs.
  • Although the quality of airline food has progressed in leaps and bounds, it'd be a good idea to bring along a snack or two. They'll get you through the flight if the in-flight meal doesn't float your boat.
  • Do all the things you've been meaning to get around to but have never had time. Stuff like starting a travel diary, finally organising the photos on your laptop or learning a new language. You'll have loads of time during the flight.
  • You'll be kicking yourself if you forget to bring a comfy travel pillow. The difference a few good hours of shut-eye makes to the beginning of your holiday can be massive.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • Wear several loose layers in soft materials. Slip on shoes which are easy to remove for speed at the security checkpoint.
  • Explore online for a quality pair of compression socks or tights. Not only will you feel more comfortable while on board, these little beauties can also reduce your risk of the dangerous condition known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis).
Can you take food on international flights:
  • Keeping a continuous flow of tasty snacks on hand is a good way to help the time pass. Be sure to include only foodstuffs which are well packed and comply with liquid and gel restrictions.
