Pros: Absolutely nothing

Cons: Just about everything this poor excuse of an airline needed to be better. Not only did they rob me at the check in desk of $210, there was also an extremely loud alarm coming from the exit door of the plane the crew couldn't fix. I was sitting right next to it for an hour and had to plug my ears to avoid hearing damage. This was the worst flight I've ever been on, and I've flown hundreds of times

I think you fall down in customer service by not supplying a little like coffee and hot choc and a free snack. Possably will avoid flying Jetstar again. Service is paramount. And no entertainment available because it wasnt a long haul just a short haul though international. Mmmmm no to Jetstar i feel. I own a resort and i know what customer service must feel like.

Pros: Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !

Cons: Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure

In particular, it wasn't clear that checked baggage fees applied, that those fees are quite reasonable if you pay them more than two hours before departure, and that they are exorbitant if you pay them when you check in at the airport. Jetstar needs to be more up front with how its checked baggage fees work.

Cons: The staff was lacking in personality and consideration. While well groomed and that plastered on smile was there the actual attention was missing the mark. I went to use the toilet before the flight and stood for several minutes waiting as the occupied sign was engaged. I was passed by staff three times before informed that the toilet is unvaivable until in the air. Really! So why did you squeeze past me 3 times without telling me this detail?

Good 7.0

Pros: Good crew, very friendly. Went above and beyond to find a passenger at baggage claim who left something on board.

Cons: Boarding was very delayed.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Ticket price seemed reasonable, until it was time to check in

Cons: Airline wanted to charge $145 for one 20 kilo check-in bag Wanted to also push me to a later flight Would not allow anything over 7 kilos carry on, and were weighing items at the gate. This put several thousand dollars of camera gear for me at risk to baggage handlers with no option to pay more for weight. The airline of course accepts no responsibility if you do have to check fragile gear due to their carry on restrictions. Seat space was hands down the smallest I've ever seen. Overheard at least three other passengers say the same Overall, experience couldn't be worse. Will not fly again.

Good 6.3

Pros: It is exactly what you pay for. The plane left on time and arrives on time.

Cons: You have no leg room and the service on the plane is just okay but for the price it is excellent. The way you pay in advance for the weight of your luggage is really tacky but that is how they make money.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: Crew was excellent; responsive, cheery. The safety video was unique enough to have passengers pay attention (seldom seen onother airlines). We were impressed and will fly "Air All Blacks" again soon.

Cons: Online checkin presented problems, as did the kiosk checkin. Breakfast could have been served a little earlier -- I realize they wanted to give passengers sleep time and turbulence may have delayed service somewhat, too. Otherwise good.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in NZD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
