Good 6.6

Pros: Plane seats are ok - a bit annoying that there is no on board entertainment and you have to use your own phone etc. The butter chicken was edible.

Cons: It'd be better if there were a selection of direct flights to Canberra. It's quicker to fly to Bali! We spent over 8 hours including wait time to travel from Canberra to Perth - via Sydney. No bag drop in Canberra - that was a surprise.

Pros: Not much. Incoming flight was late then turn-around was ridiculous.

Cons: We had extra baggage, which I tried to pay online multiple times but the Virgin website kept indicating they are having problems. When we arrived at the airport the charged us basically twice (for extra bags) what we would have paid had they not rigged their website to make extra money.

Pros: Crew was nice and friendly. Food came in a paper bag but still was good and plenty. The plane was an Airbus-330, it's a smaller plane for shorter routes but the seats were actually more comfortable than the newest Boeing 787-9 they use for long hauls.

Cons: Don't bus the passengers to the plane and make them climb the stairs. It's almost 2020.

Okay 4.0

Pros: They charged me so much for extra luggage even I prepaid online for extra luggage prior to getting to airport. Yet the ticket counter lady made me pay an additional fee and all together I ended paying more for extra bags fee than the ticket itself! both Virgin and JetStar are VERY stingy on extra luggage fees. I came from the US to Australia and traveled domestically while there with all the luggage that I brought from the US. So I had to pay so much in fees when my trip was already so expensive! It makes me reconsider wanting to travel again anywhere anytime soon, so discouraging! Also they make me take stuff out of my big suitcase and transfer to my carry on, in front of everyone at the ticket counter I had to open my suitcase and transfer some stuff so the weight is under a certain weight. Still they charged me for extra luggage. I came international on Qantas from USA to Australia, so all the domestic locations I went to I was charged

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.
