Called Air NZ in AKL. Agent (confirmed she was actually in AKL) putting me on hold several times to speak with supervisor. After 45 mins I asked her to call me back when it was all sorted. Sorry she said, this is a call-in centre, we don't call you. Anyone else had this? I was calling on 800 number, so talking to me cost them either way. Lack of respect for paying customers, pure and simple.

Interesting topic. I've had various issues in the past with Air New Zealand Call Centre however not to the point where I ask them to call me back. I prefer my call to be handled on the call even if my time is limited. They are an inbound call centre I guess, however first call resolution should be their priority.

I would have thought call in centre or not - customer service should be first priority. I was on a longish call with VA last year and they offered to call me back as the issue was going to take some time to fix. That was great as i didn't have to hang about, just answer when they had addressed the issue.
