They offered her a hot chocolate.... so kind and helped immensely. We were very impressed and will look to fly internationally with Virgin AU.

Cons: Airline food is always a bit rough. This was definitely on the 'better' side, but we were travelling with three small children, (ages 4, 5, and 7) and they didn't like any of the options. Luckily we had snack food for them to get through the flight.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Unreasonable carry-on luggage overweight charge

Cons: Apparently, the airplane was trying to make extra money from charging the carry-on luggage. I was charged at the airport about NZ160 for each checked overweight luggage, which other airlines normally not so strict about the carry on weight. Be careful when booking their flight.

Okay 5.2

Cons: Check and bag drop. Four people stood at the desks waiting til The exact min two hours before to drop bags. Time came they ignored everyone and they finally started. They were not that kind. They could take some lessons from NZ air.

Cons: The flight from Cairns to JFK that I originally purchased was supposed to be 7 hours of travel time less than what I actually ended up with. The airline changed my flights 4 times after originally booking.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare.

Cons: We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain.

Good 7.3

Pros: Lamb and chicken were good but kids didn't like the kids meals..

Cons: 2 of the female crew members had attitude problems when asked simple questions by passengers. One was an Urdu speaking flight attendant and the other was a blonde woman. Regret I didn't get their names. Please work with them on being nicer with passengers.

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.
