Okay 4.0

Pros: Not much. 1hr 5min flight was 1 hr 10 min late. The cabin crew seemed disinterested.

Cons: The crew was poor. One chewing gum, another picking her hair/head throughout the flight like she has nits. The third lolling around and chatting/gossiping to the others. This is a short flight. The least they could have done was behave professionally.

Pros: The crew members were very nice and easy going.

Mediocre 3.6

Cons: Flight was delayed by 45 minutes due to **insert one of many excuses here** and then Jetstar misplaced my luggage ( I arrived at 3 pm into Melbourne and my luggage arrived 10.30pm so I spent one of my two nights waiting for the bag to show up)

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.
