Cons: Flight delayed twice. Later Jetstar scheduled flights to the same location left before ours. Luggage damaged beyond repair or use. Wheels broken off, sides smashed. Now have to purchase new and file "proof" paperwork, pictures, etc. Will never fly Jetstar again. The cheaper flight is not worth it.

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.

Cons: Kayak needs to do a much better job making it clear that luggage needs to be purchased up front. I realize now that it is in the fine print, but I did not know that no checked bags came with this flight. The cost was not just high, it was obscene ($670 for two bags!). That was just slightly less than the cost of the entire flight for both of us. I will never fly Jetstar again. This was absolutely ridiculous. It is also a very compelling story, which I am sharing with everyone that I know. Please find a way to make this right so that the conclusion of the story can be how Kayak is a good company for fixing this.

Should have pay bit more in Virgin or Qantas and get some space to breath. Kayak does not offer extra luggage at time of you booking and jetstar sucks you like a leach on upgrading after booking. One of the passengers were not able to travel and ticket was complete lost , where as the inbound flight on Qantas gave us credit for the future. In the end , the total cost ends up close to other airlines with all the discomfort on the flight free.

Pros: Check-in crew were friendly. I think they try to do the best with the hand they are dealt. I feel sorry for them. Advice to them... Look for another job where the employer gives you the proper tools to fairly treat the customers.

Cons: VERY DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE. JetStar is just like a big leech... just sucking money from their hosts (customers) every which way possible. Our plane was in really poor condition as well (interior); seat worn out, seat pocket torn so could not be used, seat space is sooo small you might as well be in a sardine can. I thought it very appropriate at the Christchurch airport that they pipe the sound of sheep bleating as you plane and deplane; I felt about equal treatment as herding sheep. Never again JetStar.

Okay 4.5

Pros: Before departure and On board staff is good.

Cons: it is more like a Cage Chicken situation, where the seats and spaces are shrinking every day. No room to move and keens from people behind you is pinching your arse all the time. Should have pay bit more in Virgin or Qantas and get some space to breath. Kayak does not offer extra luggage at time of you booking and jetstar sucks you like a leach on upgrading after booking. One of the passengers were not able to travel and ticket was complete lost , where as the inbound flight on Qantas gave us credit for the future. In the end , the total cost ends up close to other airlines with all the discomfort on the flight free.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Check-in crew were friendly. I think they try to do the best with the hand they are dealt. I feel sorry for them. Advice to them... Look for another job where the employer gives you the proper tools to fairly treat the customers.

Cons: VERY DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE. JetStar is just like a big leech... just sucking money from their hosts (customers) every which way possible. Our plane was in really poor condition as well (interior); seat worn out, seat pocket torn so could not be used, seat space is sooo small you might as well be in a sardine can. I thought it very appropriate at the Christchurch airport that they pipe the sound of sheep bleating as you plane and deplane; I felt about equal treatment as herding sheep. Never again JetStar. Awfull!

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.
