Pros: First rate crew, friendly and professional through the long flight. The food was excellent and the crew offered snacks and drinks between meals. I paid the extra to sit in a section upstairs that I was able to get up and move around frequently.

Cons: It’s a long flight but that can’t be helped. Economy seats are really cramped and so I paid $190 for more leg room on the way back. Would highly recommend. I wouldn’t sit right next to the bathroom again. (Check seat guru first) Also wasn’t able to check in with my mobile phone. Had to go through the line.

LAX
Good 7.6

Pros: Crew and plane were fine. Nothing super special. Definitely less desirable a flight than European.

Cons: The international flights Quantas runs are fine. Beware of JETSTAR this airline is somehow even worse than value airlines in the United States. They weigh bags at check in, harass customers, the worst experience I have ever had in the air. Fly anyone else. JETSTAR IS BEYOND TERRIBLE.

Pros: Flight attendants were friendly and responsive.

Cons: 1. Better seats than mine flew empty, while I sat wedged in a full row, behind a wailing infant and ahead of a kicking toddler. 2. The meal choice was between a rice bowl and a salad, both served bereft of any sides, bread, or dessert. 3. We were late again, although not so badly as last time.

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.
