The airlines stewardess was very helpful and friendly; However I would not recommend that anyone choose to use Jetstar unless they only have an under 7 kg Carry on bag.

There was literally no where to check in our bags online. We even asked our hotel concierge to look into how we could claim our bags and they could not find anything either . Thankfully we went to the airport early, were told to look at our confirmation online from the check in folks and found absolutely nothing regarding baggage there . and ended up paying for our bags at a reasonable rate because it was prior to check in ; however , other travelers were not so fortunate and ended up paying $70 per check through bag because it was literally impossible to find any place to check them in and people were stuck in a difficult situation without a choice . additionally we were told that we were only allowed 7 kg poor person carry on Travelers beware of this - to our knowledge it happened to international travelers, May have been New Zealander as well but are not sure about that . additionally we were told that we were only allowed 7 kg per person for our carry-on total carry on. This also is nowhere to be found on the Jetstar website !!!! for every killer that you are over you are charged an additional $15! We did arrive safely and the flight was fine .

Noting out of the ordinary

The return flight was over 30 minutes late but was not announced. After the take-off time passed, I found an employee who told me it was going to be late; so although it was never announced, Jetstar knew the plane was late.

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 was charged with an excessive checked baggage of $170 NZ dollars for 1 bag that weighed over 7 kg that Air New Zealand said had to be checked and would not allow as carry on baggage. I challenged the high baggage fee with other Air New Zealand staff, to no avail. I was told that the checked baggage cost for 1 bag had recently gone up from $120 NZD to $170 NZD.

Movie selection is good and food is pretty good.

Very tight in economy. I’m 5’ & normal weight and felt cramped so if you’re any taller...you’ll hate it.

The flight was delayed for two hours but they kept announcing the delay as though we were about to begin boarding and reason they gave for the delay was hard to believe.

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
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
