- Entertainment System
Plane is small and narrow, better to fly on the morning flights with bigger aircraft
Air New Zealand flight to Noumea booked through Aircalin so full service as opposed to Air New Zealand options. ! metre 85 and no problem with legroom. Full entertainment option as well
Had Seat 5A for a Flight from Christchurch to Auckland Yesterday. Lots of Space for a Person who is 146cm tall on a 1 Hour 10 Minute Flight. Another Great Feature of This Seat is it has 2 Windows in 1 Row. Recommended Seats on this Plane are Rows 6 ABC and Row 5 DEF and Row 4 DEF.
CHC-BNE Economy, Smart saver, the works package. The seat was comfortable and close to front offering easy access to toilets and quick crew service. The food was delicious, my wife is vegetarian and was especially happy with meal, the entertainment offerings excellent. Travelled over with Qantas business class which was good but we both agreed this NZ airlines trip was a better experience.
the back 4 rows which i was in was quite turbulent during take off and landing.
Very comfortable seats however be aware that all passengers located row 16 and back will need to descend a set of stairs, walk on a dedicated walkway on the tarmac, and the ascend a set of removable steps at the rear galley. If you have difficulty with stairs, these are not the seats for you. If you present yourself to a gate agent, they may make necessary arrangements for you.
Less leg room than other rows around
Bonus tip if you're flying AKL-ZQN and want those great views sit on the left side to see the southern alps! Aside from that there's pretty much nothing to complain about on a 1 hr flight
Paid extra for 12F. Window seat cushion sits lower (4cm?) than others in row due to overwing exit door and makes for a weird feeling as everything else (table, armrest, video screen) is then out of alignment. Can't really say there is much extra leg room here either, at most maybe an inch but it wasn't much...certainly not "up to 3 extra inches" as advertised. The ABC seats may be different.
I was very pleased with this seat. It made for easy boarding at the airport, and also easy exiting of the aircraft at the end of the flight. The cabin crew were very polite and kept offering me coffee! Plenty of leg room too. Although, I did pay for a basic seat plus bag seat so I ended up having to pay extra to see a movie, which was the only negative part of my flight. Although, nevertheless, a great flight, and I look forward to my next flight. Thanks Air New Zealand!
Yes there wasn't much room in our seats. I noticed that the aircraft engines were very noisy even with my headset on. Usually I enjoy the food but the chicken we had tasted and smelt weird. Very quiet and smooth landing and not noisy at all.
Dont fly on this aircraft unless you book works deluxe seats. Sitting in standard economy seats your knees are in the seat back in front which makes the screen too close to view properly and if the person in front puts their seat back back its right in your face, we now know what sardines in a can feel like.
This was a works deluxe seat so had extra legroom, and a guaranteed empty seat next to you. The seat has very little recline. I am 180cm tall and weigh 100kg. Overall I was pleased with the seat. The armrest folded up giving me more room.However it is very close to the front toilet and also where the crew sit and prepare food. So there are a lot of people walking past you and standing near you. These Works deluxe seats are not cheap though, as you are effectively paying for 1.5 seats. It's a pity they use these planes for international flights lasting around 4.5 hours. They should use larger wide bodied planes. This plane has no Business Class or Premium Economy seats.
If you want to know what a battery hen feels like, take a flight on this plane. Staff friendly and service good, shame about the aircraft. I've flown a lot in my life but never on such a cramped plane. We spent the whole time praying the people in front wouldn't put their seat back. Really puts me off returning to Rarotonga as this seems to be the return aircraft and I'd never fly from LA with the option of transiting on this plane through the Cook Islands. Air New Zealand really lets down their service with this aircraft.
Flew Melbourne Christchurch on Virgin and the return leg was on Air New Zealand. Seat was cramped, no decline and when you are trying to catch up on missed sleep, it made for an uncomfortable 3.5hr journey
The seats are very cramped. No leg room. I am only 160cms. People in front [Large male kiwis} had reclined their seats and this made it very uncomfortable for me. I flew over on Virgin . Slightly better leg room. Would probably look for another airline.
I am 157cms tall and I sat in this seat on a flight from Christchurch to Brisbane, it was most the most uncomfortable 3.5 hours I have ever spent on a plane, my knees touched the back of the seat in front, the seat only reclined 1 inch and there was no foot rest. I strongly advise anyone over 150cms tall not to sit in a middle seat on this type of aircraft.
Row 4, seats D E & F are misaligned with the rest of row 4 (A B & C) and the D E & F seat are very scrunched and offer much less leg room than most. I replied to AIR NEW ZEALANDS after flight survey and the reply was that this was due to the rows in front and 4 A B & C being better spaced for frequent flyers etc. I was surprised to see 9 D E & F being available that far forward when I booked my fare months ago and took 9F unawares of the reduce leg room. Once the man in front reclined his seat I had 30cms between my nose and the back of his seat. Mercifully it was only a 3 hour flight. Never again Air New Zealand.
I'm 200cm tall so paid $20 extra for the extra leg room, was a wise investment as flight was 100% loaded. Seat was just wide enough, comfort was OK for 4 hour flight. Service was very good with positive, helpful attitude on the ground and in flight.
Seats in Row 1 D, E, and F are up against a bulkhead and although there is good leg room, tall people may not be able to stretch their legs out. (I am 183cm tall) I also noticed that all the seat in Row 1 (both sides) have flip up screens which means the controls are in the arm rests. This makes the arm rests wider and the seats a tighter fit and cannot be lifted. From Row 2 the screens are in the back of the seats in front and don't have controls in the arm rests so they can be lifted.
