Pros: Great Business Class Lounge close to departure gate.

Cons: Connecting from a domestic flight with Virgin Australia to the International Terminal carrying 5 large pieces of luggage was a bit stressful and complicated. Train or Bus ? Lots of Lifts up and down. Boarding security was excessive.

Good 7.3

Pros: Food was surprisingly good and generous. Also nice to have snacks and small soft drinks available in the back at any time. The entertainment system had a good collection of movies.

Cons: Seats should have a USB port for charging devices. Podcast selection was poor on the entertainment system and usually only had one or two episodes. Because podcasts are often free (or can be licensed cheaply) and require little storage, system should have last 20 episodes of the best 100 podcasts.

Good 7.5

Pros: Security was super fast. Boarding was straight forward.

Cons: Jetstar baggage policy is, as most know, annoying. 7 kg limit on carry on bags or else you have to pay for extra “weight allowance.” Quite annoying since I can’t very well weigh my bag at home and it really changes nothing. You still bring the bag on the pla e. You just have to pay extra

Pros: New plane.

Cons: Really small plane. They placed my 6’8 husband in a regular row, when there were 2 bulk head and 1 exit row seat available. The “meal” = 3 half sandwiches - mayo & tuna (smelled through the cellophane wrapper) and a bottle of water. No entertainment. LOST MY LUGGAGE! Yuck. Avoid Jet Star.

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
