Pros: Short flight. Good crew

Cons: Flight delayed twice. Later Jetstar scheduled flights to the same location left before ours. Luggage damaged beyond repair or use. Wheels broken off, sides smashed. Now have to purchase new and file "proof" paperwork, pictures, etc. Will never fly Jetstar again. The cheaper flight is not worth it.

Cons: Our flight was over an hour late leaving. Check in was slow, and when we finally reached the counter our bags were over the 7kg limit and were charged an additional 70 dollars(35 each). We were not charged at the beginning of our trip from Aukland to Nelson for over weight bags so it was a surprise. We were told at the counter if you declare your over 7kg bags when you first buy your ticket it is quite a bit less of a fee.

Cons: Ridiculous delays to our flight with no explanation. They initially advised us of a 6 hour delay then on arrival at the airport the board says there is a further 2 hours delay. So I’m stuck at the airport between 2:30am till 6:00am with a useless meal voucher from them because nothing is open. :(

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.
