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.

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.

Pros: Take-off and landing were smooth.

Cons: 1) Online check-in wanted our weight of our checked-in bag, and because I didn’t know it, we checked at airport but then had to pay $60 instead of the $25 or so online. 2) while they were making us pay, they didn’t mention that the flight was delayed so we got to our gate almost 2 hours too soon with no clue. 3) they wouldn’t even give a cup of water. Had to pay $4 for a bottle.

Okay 4.6

Cons: I am typically careful to prebook my baggage, but somehow forgot. I was then charged fees that were more than 6x what they would have been if my advance booking had gone through. Their customer support and willingness to help were horrible, and the $145 in fees put a huge damper on my trip. I will never travel with JerStar again.

Pros: crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Flight was on time

Cons: we paid some NZ 200 to take luggage 38kg When I booked I did not realize that the allowance was 8kg only. The explanation for the high rate was that we should have informed Jetstar earlier. But.. how to change this when travelling ? This was the only nasty surprise during our 35 days stay in NZ Some warning on your website or lower rates are necessary regards Max

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.
