Pros: Efficient boarding and grateful for the spare seat with the baby on our lap. Crew was nice enough.

Cons: We waited for a $9 toastie for 25 minutes- and had to remind the crew to get it. Disappointed that they are so cheap the only free thing on a 10 hour flight was water- after paying for checked bags, one coffee, and one sandwich, the extras made them more expensive then other "non budget" airlines.

Pros: Awful airline.

Cons: God this was an awful experience. They substituted a small plane for the big plane and bumped 100 people to a later flight with a connection thru an intermediate city, leaving 3 hours later. But that flight got delayed 2 hours so we would have missed our connection anyway and not gotten to our destination until 30 hours later. We spent most of the day standing in incredibly slow lines mislabelled Customer Service. It was nothing of the kind. The whole experience felt like being abused.

Pros: It was operated by air New Zealand so the service was top notch once I was able to resolve all other issues boarding.

Cons: We had a flight bought on virgin Australia and operated with air New Zealand. The air New Zealand part was all great plane boarding etc, the horrible part is that we bought baggage allowances with virgin and they never transferred the information to air New Zealand. So there I am from the USA in a foreign country boarding a flight being asked to pay 500 nz dollars for a few kilos when I had already paid for it. Having to produce emails and payment information on something I had done months in advance. Overall I won’t recommend virgin next time I’d book directly with air New Zealand

After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight.

Pros: Crew is good, attentive, embodies the middle eastern hospitality culture.

Cons: Connecting through Dubai was terrible, 1 hour delay before flight take-off was awful, food was less quality than previous flights, flight attendants congregated in front of my seat by the galley, parked all sorts of things there, could not sit comfortable the entire flight.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Crew is horrible. Very rude and refused to help by any means when i asked for my baby stroller. I have 2 kids that I had to carry all the way through customs and bagga claim because refuse to bring stroller to the gate and was very rude in their answer. Horrible Experience. I will never fly emirates

Cons: train the crew to respect customers, and to show care for families. I'm surprised Emirates always market about how friendly they are with family travels when the crew not only refuse to bring the stroller to the gate like all other airlines, but was also very rude. Her name was Annalie

Okay 5.6

Pros: Crews are always nice on Virgin, had priority seating which was really nice given my status is with a partner airline

Cons: Flight was late leaving and then over an hour late into destination so was late for work and an important meeting missed. The flight was full of very smelly passengers. I understand this is not something the airline can manage but here should be standards for boarding passengers. It is difficult situation I realise, but I was across the isle from a person with incredibly poor personal hygiene and the smell was almost unbearable.

Okay 4.0

Cons: No in flight entertainment. No seat charging. It would have been nice to know this a head of time so we could have prepared (tracing with 3 kids). Right before we took off crew told everyone to down load virgin app, they didn’t specify the entertainment app. So we were not able to watch any movies.

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.
