Pros: Great and attentive crew. Solid in-flight entertainment. Pilots got us to destination 20 mins early!

Cons: 1) It's pretty standard to offer a small toiletries pack (eg. Eyecover, toothbrush/paste, etc) on long-haul flights for other airlines. 2) Felt ripped off paying $50 for "preferred economy" seats that looked/felt identical to standard economy seats. Should be marketed as just priority boarding.

Good 6.0

Pros: The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight.

Cons: I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities.

Pros: I liked that Jetstar communicated with me and kept me informed about what was happening with my flights. I liked that the Jetstar staff in Sydney helped me to get a room for the night, the hotel people were helpful and friendly, the shuttle bus drivers were helpful and friendly. I liked that Qantas helped me transfer my Jetstar cancelled flight to QF148, so I was able to fly Auck to SYD. I did like that Jetstar provided free in-flight entertainment to all passengers after the flight form SYD - DPS was dallied 3 hours on departure.

Cons: I didn't like that my Jetstar flight was cancelled and I missed my connecting flight to Denpasar. I didn't like that I lost a whole day of my holiday due to the flight cancellation, I missed my pick up transfer from DPS airport to my hotel in Ubud late at night, and I was not refunded my night's booked accomodation at my Ubud hotel. I didn't like that I had to go through immigration, pick up my baggage in SYD before I could get to the Jetstar counter to connect with my flight to DPS. because of this delay I missed my connecting flight. I did not like that My one day delayed connecting flight from SYD to DPS was delayed a further 3 hours departing from Sydney.

Pros: Smooth boarding and landing. Flight time is great. Not very many disruptions in the overnight flight.

Cons: The check-in process is overly long. Being a low cost carrier doesn't mean you need to sacrifice efficiency on this part. This could be much smoother with an automated bag drop are for international flights or a check-in at the oversized X-ray machine (since so many people bring skis & surfboards.

SYD
Good 6.3

Pros: It was a safe flight.

Cons: I have flown Qantas several times across the Pacific and have had much better experiences on the longer flights. Everything was delayed, the plane was small, and the food was pretty bad, even by airplane food standards. I just expected more given what I have come to expect from Qantas.

Good 7.6

Pros: The crew were OK. I had no personal interactions. I found the seating uncomfortable and not what I had requested for medical issues.

Cons: The experience of economy x seemed the same as economy. My seat request did not happen.

Mediocre 3.5

Cons: It was 1 hr delayed then when boarded there was some technical fault and we were left boarded with door open for about an hour. There was no offer of water or any drink. Seats I didn’t find comfortable. The cabin had significant rattle. Overall a very poor experience in today’s day and age.

Good 7.0

Pros: Crew

Cons: I cannot believe that when I put the table down I could not move & at 80 kg I was by no means the biggest person on that plane!!!!!

Mediocre 2.3

Cons: Ridiculously over priced baggage fees. I couldn't believe I was being charged just as much for my flight as I was my checked bags. They hope you book with them because they're slightly more affordable than other companies but then charge you for absolutely everything once you get to the airport. Staff seem to know its unfair, but unwilling to do anything to help you. I'll never fly with them again.

Good 7.5

Cons: There're unoccupied rows, but still pack passenger together instead of offering the empty seats to couples.

OK 4.3

Pros: The inflight crew was nice.

Cons: I hate checking in with LATAM! I swear they make up new bag rules for every person that walks up. There were people with 2 carry ones, purses, and shopping bags. But I couldn't bring 2 backpacks(school backpacks!) on. I had to check one. I HATE LATAM! Every time it is something different with them.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board.

Cons: It's a short flight, only water offered on board.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Try to avoid LATAM. Actually low cost competition is offering a better service. Latam grew too much and the service is bad. They are making too many mistakes such as not delivering basic information such as where to pick up luggage claim. Honest advice: look for alternatives and avoid big headaches

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.
