New Zealand's national carrier has beaten Toyota to the title of New Zealand's most reputable company, while Fonterra's ranking took a tumble.
Consultancy AMR and international organisation the Reputation Institute released this year's survey on how New Zealanders rate businesses today.
Air New Zealand, Toyota and the Warehouse are in the top three - based on products, innovation, leadership and performance.
The survey shows people are impressed by the airline's cheaper fares, new planes, improved financial results and safety videos.
Other companies ranked highly include Z Energy, New Zealand Post and ASB Bank.
Further down, the dairy giant Fonterra has fallen six places from the previous survey to 23rd place, while Sky Television has dropped two places and sits at the bottom on 25th.
