Cons: 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.

Cons: Flight attendant kept forgetting to turn the entertainment back on after an announcement.

Had to wait on plane while airbridge was brought to the plane so everyone could disembark - “they weren’t expecting the flight!!” Whole flight still waiting for luggage after 55 minutes of standing at carousel and only after 55 minutes an announcement to say handlers are tending to a departure and we have to wait another 10 minutes - a whole hour for luggage - take carry on only next time!!!! 4 flights collecting luggage from the one carousel!!

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Pros: Melbourne has got self check in and bag drop working well....Sydney, take note and passengers be ready for it. That said the ground crew are there to help, but read the signs and don't get cranky if you hey sent back to do what you're meant to. On board, the cheese and cracker snack pack I got was great, nice to see complimentary snacks and drinks being maintained. Onboatd wifi via the app worked well and was actually able to use inflight entertainment on hand held device online the Sydney to Melbourne leg

Cons: It was a full flight but there was too much cabin luggage. Ppl had oversized bags and too much of it. Get stricter with the measurements would be my suggestion.

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.

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Keith the baby whisperer. Who took the babies one by one from there clueless mothers and stopped them crying and screaming. Kieth deserves his own commercial.

Cons: The food and the seat comfort.

OK 5.6

Cons: I wasn’t given the seats I had chosen when purchasing the ($3,000) tickets. The seats in the “Dreamliner” were cramped and hard—uncomfortable.

Good 7.3

Cons: Flight attendant kept forgetting to turn the entertainment back on after an announcement. Flight attendant sounded unprofessional over PA Would like more snacks - savoury and sweet, instead of just savoury. Snack was not sufficient for a 3 hour flight landing at 9pm. Had to wait on plane while airbridge was brought to the plane so everyone could disembark - “they weren’t expecting the flight!!” Whole flight still waiting for luggage after 55 minutes of standing at carousel and only after 55 minutes an announcement to say handlers are tending to a departure and we have to wait another 10 minutes - a whole hour for luggage - take carry on only next time!!!! 4 flights collecting luggage from the one carousel!!

Excellent 8.3

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

Cons: 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.

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.
