As good as you can get, considering it was economy. I think that the 787 made it that way--wonderful plane! I love Jet Star--being able to up-grade to comfort without much problem.

Ordering food, even though a better value than most cut-rate airlines, is a pain to remember, and was difficult for some on board. When you say there will be no other food, people don't want to believe you.

Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well.

Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided.

Nothing! I couldn't check my bag on line (cheaper) and at the airport I was also charged for my carryon, which has been fine on other airlines throughout my trip, and for years of European travel. 3 1/2 hour flight and all that was offered was coffee, tea (I drink neither) and water, no food, no entertainment. Flight attendants spent most of the time in the back of the plane in their cubby talking, not taking care of those in the plane.

I was seated in the aisle seat in the back row, next to the oONE functioning toilet so I spent 3 1/2 hours with people's crotches and butts in my face. The flight crew spent most of the time in the area by the toilets talking loudly so I heard all about their boyfriends, who they were sleeping with, their vacation to Fiji and their thought and opinions of the passengers on the plane.

I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage...

I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again

This flight was on the 777-300 plane leased from EVA. Boarding proved to be a bit of a slow grind due to the inordinate number of families with children on this particular flight. Our fault for not realising this at time of booking. Flight itself went very smoothly. Seats were fine. Not a huge selection of movies to choose from. Felt the crew went about their duties without fuss and ticked all the boxes for me.

I highly recommend to never fly Jetstar. I am a frequent flyer and this was my first time using Jetstar. With extremely limited access to WiFi while traveling in New Zealand I was unable to check-in my bag prior to arriving at the airport which lead to a bag fee of $360!! Never in my life have I had a bag fee this high. It would have been cheaper for me to outright book a completely different flight at that moment of finding out what they were charging me - on a competitor airline for the same departure time that very day!

Unreasonable carry-on luggage overweight charge

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.

The view

Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit. It felt more like a cheap budget airline not ‘the spirit of australia’ as branded. The touch screen was so bad that you forced the persons head in front to move when you pressed the screen.

I paid nearly $400 for a one way flight from Sydney to Auckland. You think they could include a Coke and a package of peanuts. I will avoid using Jetstar in the future.

Unreasonable carry-on luggage overweight charge

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.

The initial posted economy fair was very attractive and the timing for our route fit well

Minimal bagage allowance for carry-on Big extra price for booked luggage Nothing provided (even water!) without an extra fee during the flight Minimal seat size and legroom

I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage...

I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again

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.
