I was expecting a small run down local operator. Although very expensive as is everything in PNG the service was very good. Clean plane, friendly staff and smooth on time flights. Boarding and check in procedures as good as any.

Have done this flight several times from PNI to SYD and from SYD to PNI. Cancelled flights, late flights and unboarded luggage were painful but Air Nuigini looked after us with good acommodation and meals so customer service was ok. Because of overbooking, our baggage was removed from the plane on one occasion with the promise of delivery on the...

The usual great flight with this airline. The staff, both in flight and at the airport are always great. Food on board was good, and I had a relaxed flight as usual. Air Niugini is a great way to fly and I will continue to do so in the future.

I usually fly Air Niugini for both work and leisure or onward connections so a few hints for those travelling economy class on Air Niugini. Buy an upgrade at the counter if available between K50-70 (usd $25-35) for rows 9 & 10 emergency exits or front row economy, best when doing your bookings online. The extra legroom is worth it...

If you have to go to PNG, consider swimming instead of flying this airline. I was booked from Manila to Port Moresby and had a connecting flight to Alotau with a four hour layover so plenty of time. At Manila there was a long delay due to a recent closure of the airport but once the delay was longer I...

The aircraft was a Boing 767, the entertaiment system just good, but the best of the experience was the service, just wonderdul, the crew always attentive to give you all that you want, for a moment I thought that I was in first class.

The flight was lovely, although we were travelling on a Fokker 100 so no inflight entertainment. I was able to select my seat when checking in online so I was able to get a window seat. Was a smooth landing, although there was a hold up at during the arrival but all in all we arrived in good time and...

While there were delays in loading, the cabin service was excellent, breakfast great and I had an opportunity to catch-up on some sleep. Recommended.
