Cons: They charged us $140 to check two carryon-sized bags (which we were able to fit in overhead bins on all of our other flights during the trip). VERY disappointed. It was either abandon our carryons, or pay the $140. We felt like we were held hostage by this airline's policy and will never fly with Jetstar again.

Cons: So I showed up to find out that my ticket didn't include luggage, ok, no big deal I will pay for the bag, what 75$, no problem. oh wait a minute they wanted 300$ for the bag. the flight was less than 250$, I ended up walking over to Air NZ and got a flight with them. I will never, ever, ever, ever book with these jokers again. This should be illegal, showing up at the airport and then being told the baggage charge is over 100% of the price of the ticket. I could have bought another ticket just for my bag and put it in the seat beside me for less. How does an airline justify this???

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: This fight was cancelled because of an engine problem. This is understandable and we know it happens. The problem was we had to book another flight immediately with another airline in order to make the other connecting flights to complete our trip home. Jetstar only was going to refund the amount of the cost for their flight and not the difference for a new flight as well. The new flight with New Zealand air cost us double what our original flight with Jetstar cost. We incurred an additional unplanned cost of over $1000. We would like to be reimbursed for the additional costs! We feel like this is the responsibility of Jetstar to its customers.

CHC
AKL
OK 4.0

Cons: We were charged over $300 (NZ) for the check in luggage!!! I told the agent this is ridiculous, our seats were only $159 (NZ). She said that I should have read the "terms & conditions." Like other reviewers, I booked this flight over 3 months ago and didn't take note of any extra charges for checked-in luggage. After reading the comments of others in the same situation, I realize that I'm not alone. I wish I had checked out these reviews of Jetstar BEFORE I booked. You would be doing your clients a big favor to include mention of this strange practice of not including luggage fees by Jetstar..and warn them that these fees could bring the total cost of their airfare to over $500 for a 100 minute domestic flight for 2 travelers. My husband said next time we're going through a travel agent. Sorry

Pros: Carryon luggage is restricted to 7 kg. Conflicts with worldcstandards and then they apply it to foreigners, but not to Kiwis! They would not let me take on my roller bag, but many locals got to! 9

Good 6.3

Pros: Anything I liked has been ruined by the baggage fees. I am expecting to be reimbursed and look forward to some contact from a company representative.

Cons: The price of the flight advertised clearly stated that there were no baggage fees, it was written as £0 after the words 'baggage fees', so I was clearly surprised to be asked to pay $70 upon arrival at the airport from my baggage. Would someone like to explain this? I will be taking this up with the senior partners at your company as I feel this is complete miss advertising. The fact that you can state zero fees and then expect customers to pay extra is RIDICULOUS!!! I WILL NEVER BE USING THIS COMPANY AGAIN, EVEN IF THE PRICE IS CONSIDERABLY LESS THAN A COMPETITOR.

Pros: Nothing, never, ever go on Jetstar

Cons: No explanation, no time table, awful service.

OK 4.6

Pros: When booking the flight I somehow missed that I had to claim luggage beforehand (this was my first time using JetStar). Anyway 170.00 later we were off. The crew and staff were fine. There was no food, no drink, and no entertainment.

Cons: Besides the luggage fees, the seats were terrible. They sit straight up at a 90 degree angle, almost forcing you to recline to get comfortable. Quite claustrophobic.

Pros: Forgot to add check bag to my fair. Arrived early and was to add a check bag for $17. The service was great for the price of a short domestic flight.

Pros: Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated.

Cons: The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing unless being over chargered gets me points when in heaven.

Cons: When I ordered the flight the process never gave me a chance to pay for bags like it did from Auckland to Christchurch. However, on the return flight when I went to check the bags in they said I would have to pay $210 for 2 bags. Thanks jetsatr and kayak for not having a good process to order a head of time. Won't use either again unless someone reads this and gives me a refund.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: They charged us $200 baggage allowance when we got there. So much for booking my own flight. I was clueless on how their baggage fees work. Apparently you must pay for them BEFORE you get to the ticket counter. I will not fly with them again.

Cons: The flight was late with no explanation as to why. We missed our connection to the second flight. We had to change our car rental plans, and it cost us twice as much. We had to spend 6 extra hours in the Auckland airport.

OK 4.0

Cons: We were charged over $300 (NZ) for the check in luggage!!! I told the agent this is ridiculous, our seats were only $159 (NZ). She said that I should have read the "terms & conditions." Like other reviewers, I booked this flight over 3 months ago and didn't take note of any extra charges for checked-in luggage. After reading the comments of others in the same situation, I realize that I'm not alone. I wish I had checked out these reviews of Jetstar BEFORE I booked. You would be doing your clients a big favor to include mention of this strange practice of not including luggage fees by Jetstar..and warn them that these fees could bring the total cost of their airfare to over $500 for a 100 minute domestic flight for 2 travelers. My husband said next time we're going through a travel agent. Sorry

Pros: the crew were awesome, the food okay, it's the first time I've been able to say exellent to flying with air new Zealand today, the past trips have been stinkers, there crew really bad, they put us off flying with my own country's airline so sad, the first leg was cancelled because the flight got in late, with no txt or any warning before we got to the gate, so maybe we will just try them again, because this last trip from Christchurch has eased some of the past pain

Cons: The baggage handlers destoyed my case, there the same the world over because of the furious pace, they don't care for your posesions weather there precious or not, this is the real sad point when ones flying a lot,

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.
