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.

Cons: Awful flight Awful service We had to pay for our luggage twice the ticket value The check in supervisor charged us 70$ per bag instead of 17$ for an excuse that they have opened the check in already while we arrived an hour before the flight, the exact time we should be at a domestic flight. And he said he could not do nothing about it Not to mention that we ourselves works at the airport at our country and know exactly how it works we surely not gonna use any of your service again !!

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.

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.

No help or explanation. Not a fan of Jetstar or their web site.

Pros: The initial price.

Cons: Jet star is a super cheap company. Everything is extra. We purchased extra baggage but didn't have a scale and we weighed over. Make sure to purchase the heavy side because it cost an arm and a leg. The lady at the desk didn't know the rules for fishing rods and almost made us pack them. Luckily we had just flown a different airline and knew we could carry them on. If you decide to change your flight it's cheaper just to purchase new tickets.

I do not know where they come up with this charge and think it is absolutely ridiculous that they can spring this unexpected and costly charge at you last minute. Normal baggage charges range from $25-$50 for 1 checked bag and this I could understand. $70 for a 1 hour and 5 minute flight is outrageous

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: Crew and staff were nice.

Cons: Baggage fees are super expensive if you don't prepay. Can be as much as the flight itself. Be sure to prepay for your baggage!!

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

Mediocre 2.0

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???

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.

Okay 4.6

Pros: Note too expensive

Cons: Jet star wanted to charge us $60 at gate for our hand bags after we checked our two carry on bags with 10kg balance. Very confusing baggage policy for people originating from USA

Good 7.6

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 3.6

Cons: Had to pay for most movies. They need to bring around water more often and actually offer it to window seats rather than handing a glass to the aisle and walking off.

Pros: Airline is pretty good

Cons: I had a horrible experience booking with Kayak because normally I should be allowed two bags to check in but I was only allowed one because I booked through kayak.

Excellent 8.0

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.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early which was too soon to check in. Instead of making us wait, the Jetstar attendant offered us an earlier flight. Very accommodating and thoughtful! Thanks so much Jetstar!

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: The initial price.

Cons: Jet star is a super cheap company. Everything is extra. We purchased extra baggage but didn't have a scale and we weighed over. Make sure to purchase the heavy side because it cost an arm and a leg. The lady at the desk didn't know the rules for fishing rods and almost made us pack them. Luckily we had just flown a different airline and knew we could carry them on. If you decide to change your flight it's cheaper just to purchase new tickets.

Excellent 9.6

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.

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.
