Pros: Once we were seated and lift off was timely the flight uneventful as one can only hope for. The food was not outstanding but the chicken salad was better than most airline food and was a nice portion to tide us over for a long day after landing.

Cons: The staff was lacking in personality and consideration. While well groomed and that plastered on smile was there the actual attention was missing the mark. I went to use the toilet before the flight and stood for several minutes waiting as the occupied sign was engaged. I was passed by staff three times before informed that the toilet is unvaivable until in the air. Really! So why did you squeeze past me 3 times without telling me this detail?

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Once we were seated and lift off was timely the flight uneventful as one can only hope for. The food was not outstanding but the chicken salad was better than most airline food and was a nice portion to tide us over for a long day after landing.

Cons: The staff was lacking in personality and consideration. While well groomed and that plastered on smile was there the actual attention was missing the mark. I went to use the toilet before the flight and stood for several minutes waiting as the occupied sign was engaged. I was passed by staff three times before informed that the toilet is unvaivable until in the air. Really! So why did you squeeze past me 3 times without telling me this detail?

Good 6.3

Pros: It is exactly what you pay for. The plane left on time and arrives on time.

Cons: You have no leg room and the service on the plane is just okay but for the price it is excellent. The way you pay in advance for the weight of your luggage is really tacky but that is how they make money.

OK 4.3

Pros: Decemt crew.At least they didn't charge for water on the flight.

Cons: We did not include a checked bag when we purchased tickets (not knowing what we would have) and had to pay $60 per bag once we got to the airport. Absurd!

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.
