This is nothing fancy but it is the best way to get from Nadi to Nauru, Kiribati or Marshall Islands. You cannot pick your seat and they have the boarding passes printed ahead of time so you can't ask to change it either which was a little frustrating to me as a nervous traveler who likes the aisle seat. However...

Our flight from Port Vila to Brisbane was operated by Nauru airlines (flight sold by Qantas). The flight departed one hour late, but service was in other respect ok.

Flight was delayed for 3 hours, but service was good, friendly stuff, food is quite basic. You can have alcohol to your meal. No entertainment on-board. Very expensive!

Due to adverse reviews and the history of Nauru Airlines on airline websites we paid a little extra by booking through Qantas instead of Air Vanuatu who utilise Nauru for direct flights to Santo.. We thought that would cover cancellations etc a little better than the actual carrier. Our return flight was delayed for hours but that was due to...

Firstly, these guys are doing their work on behalf of Air Vanuatu, which I suppose we should be thankful to get there at all and should really be annoyed at the airline we booked with. Service was curt at times and impolite, however I think the crew were mostly trying their best, it just wasnt that good. Being an hour...

Its an aged 737 fleet and there is no entertainment on board but the food was surprisingly good.Unfortunately you cannot select your seat which is an issue on a 4 hour + flight...I have had worst flights with much bigger airlines.

Booking Nauru Airlines was a bit of an adventure, I thought at the beginning. I needed to get from Fiji to Pohnpei - and they happened to provide just the flight. I didn't expect anything really - and was in for a super positive surprise. Good pilots, even during turbulence they managed to make the passengers feel safe (Fiji -...
