Cons: Jetstar is cheap and terrible. We were charged $160 dollars to check small, carry-on sized bags we had expected to take on board with us. This is 4 times the price on their website; that price is no longer available once you're at check-in. The service was slow and inefficient. Even after checking in online we still had to wait in line to check in at the counter. This took ages since at least 5 or 6 other people were having issues with Jetstar, like us. The flight itself was cramped (I'm a shorter woman and had almost no leg room) and there were no complimentary drinks or snacks for our 4 hour flight. We opted for Jetstar because it's the cheapest option, but ended up having to pay more than we would have for a much nicer flight with another airline.

Pros: The ride on the plane was all good

Cons: I didn’t like that when I purchased the tickets it gave me no option to add bags to my ticket. My itinerary that was emailed to me didn’t even say anything about paying for the bags before I got there. I got a huge shock when I was first in line and I was told I would have to pay 370 dollars for both my bags. I was livid and quite frankly don’t want to fly or book with virgin ever again. That couldn’t even help me out with anything so overall I’m upset and will never fly with you Virgin. I will also let it be known about this. I’m just a young traveler traveling for education and I get stuck with this bill to where I shouldn’t even go because I spent so much money just for my bags :(

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

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.

Cons: Airline food is always a bit rough. This was definitely on the 'better' side, but we were travelling with three small children, (ages 4, 5, and 7) and they didn't like any of the options. Luckily we had snack food for them to get through the flight.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Initially, the ticket was cheap.

Cons: The cost of my baggage was triple the cost of my flight. The assistants at the desk and gate were rude. I don't fly internationally often and I was anxious, they did not have time or interest in helping me. I could've been on a United flight with my parter 10 hours earlier for the same cost, had I known I would actually pay far more than the cost upfront. I will not be flying Jetstar again.

Excellent 8.0

Cons: Good seat on Virgin VA1 51H and lucky for me there's no one seated beside me I had two seats all to myself. They run out of chicken and had to settle for vege curry which was ok. Purchased the wifi the entire flight which was awesome.

Good 7.2

Pros: All the basics were good- comfort, service, and the flight itself.

Cons: The fight was significantly delayed due to weather, which is not their fault, but they did not update us or the departure time toward the end, which they clearly knew and didn't communicate that it would be further delayed. They forgot cups for tea and coffee, so we only had water or juice.

Good 7.3

Pros: The crew was great and the seats were comfortable.

Cons: If the seats reclined more, it would have been easier to sleep. The baby behind me would not stop screaming for 7 of the 15 hour flight. The flight was oversold so there was no where I could move. Even ear plugs didn’t help. Everyone was miserable.

Okay 4.0

Cons: The most uncomfortable experience ever! I was disturbed and/or woken up several times, during flight, by the flight attendances to place my seat in the upright position to accommodate the person sitting behind me who either wanted to drink alcoholic beverages every hour on the hour.

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.
