Great movies, onboard entertainment even programmed with your name and welcome you onboard, save favourites and more (shame does not save or transfer to other Air New Zealand flights). Touch screen and keyboard options. Enjoy it,...

Water when it was brought around was slopped over you as it was poured from a jug at your seat. Food quality was very poor and tasteless. Check in...

Super clean. Very relaxed. Highly organized. Lovely staff. Good legroom in economy. Black sleek leather seats. Usb compartment for charging.I preordered a vegetarian meal online. I bought a ticket that enabled me to watch movies. Not great selection but kept me busy. Definitely will fly on it again and will recommend.
