Air Niugini customer review

MNL-POM-RAB return in Business. In the last five years flying with Air Niugini service and airplane quality has deteriorated dramatically. A flight inside PNG has become an absolute lottery game without help whatsoever from the ground crew.

Air Niugini customer review

I have the misfortune of using Air Niugini often through lack of choice. Most recent flight was POM- SIN return. The airline is now leasing an aging White Airlines A310 which is older than the previous B767. Seats are appalling IFE does not work and toilets are constantly unservicable. The food is passable but really nothing special. Service is slow and Cabin crew seem unable to deal with complaints or concerns raised by passengers. Overall Air Niugini is not deserving of a three star ranking - a two star ranking would be more appropriate given the decline in the airline's international services.

Air Niugini customer review

SIN-POM Busines Class. Check in at Singapore easy as we were early and able to take advantage of general early check in desk and also a separate Premium check-in area is available. Lounge at SIN is nice with a bit of food. Chaotic getting on plane with lot of pushing - we were sent down at a time when the Economy passengers were still queuing to go through security. Plane very hot and stuffy. Food edible - but you do not need 2 meals on an overnight 6 hour flight! Real problem are seats - the plane is a very tired leased 767 with seats that do not recline much and a poor foot-rest. They are the most uncomfortable seats I have experienced in either business class or economy for a long time. My husband could not sleep so put on his i-pod and was immediately told to turn it off as it was interfering with the radio. IFE did not work.

I have been working in Port Moresby for two years and am a regular Air Niugini passenger. Have flown with them to Singapore Tokyo and numerous times to Brisbane. Primary long haul aircraft is still a hard working leased 767-300. Fokker F100 sometimes used on the Brisbane route. Cabin is a bit tired and lacks a good entertainment system. The service is Air Niugini's real plus - always a smile and flight attendants willing to go the extra mile. Fare competitiveness has improved significantly over the past few years with the introduction of competition from Airlines PNG on the Cairns and Brisbane routes. Qantas flights in/out of Port Moresby are codeshare with Air Niugini using Air Niugini aircraft.

NRT-POM-BNE Business Class. It was a pleasant experience. FAs are efficient and friendly. I did not have much expectations for the IFE but was actually quite good. 3hour delay at Port Moresby but waiting at the executive lounge time went very quickly. Incidentally I never complain about delay when the airline company's priority is safety and paying extra attention to some fault even if its minor. I heard airliners in South Pacific region as well as Australia and NZ have very good safety record and I deeply appreciate and respect that.

CNS-POM-CNS + domestic. The cabin crew are friendly and I would fly with them more if they expanded their route network. Fares are steep but then they have a monopoly on the PNG market. Aesthetic needs a bit of an upgrade as do most parts of the overall product (ie entertainment inflight magazine).

The service is always good the food often served cold training required there - the delays are ongoing - why? Why can't we use upgrade certificates on the BNE-POM flight? The lounge in POM is late opening and often doesn't open before the 7am departure - people pay for this service.

Air Niugini customer review

BNE/POM/MNL/POM/BNE in April 2004. First time with this line. As Mr Tate says the cabin crew are shy but very helpful and courteous. The cheap fare for the round trip (about $820) was the snare but I found them punctual efficient and the food (economy) quite good if a little light on in- flight reading matter.
