Okay 4.5

Pros: Before departure and On board staff is good.

Cons: it is more like a Cage Chicken situation, where the seats and spaces are shrinking every day. No room to move and keens from people behind you is pinching your arse all the time. Should have pay bit more in Virgin or Qantas and get some space to breath. Kayak does not offer extra luggage at time of you booking and jetstar sucks you like a leach on upgrading after booking. One of the passengers were not able to travel and ticket was complete lost , where as the inbound flight on Qantas gave us credit for the future. In the end , the total cost ends up close to other airlines with all the discomfort on the flight free.

Cons: Kayak needs to do a much better job making it clear that luggage needs to be purchased up front. I realize now that it is in the fine print, but I did not know that no checked bags came with this flight. The cost was not just high, it was obscene ($670 for two bags!). That was just slightly less than the cost of the entire flight for both of us. I will never fly Jetstar again. This was absolutely ridiculous. It is also a very compelling story, which I am sharing with everyone that I know. Please find a way to make this right so that the conclusion of the story can be how Kayak is a good company for fixing this.

After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed.

Pros: Crew was fine. Boarding was efficient.

Cons: I hate their baggage policy! I prepaid for bags and then got charged another $187USD for a small carry on. This is a horrible airline if you pack any luggage at all.

Pros: More comfortable than expected.

Cons: Could not check in online or at the kiosk (the flight was part of an overall ticket bought on Air New Zealand). Only one checked bag per ticket, but we had an extra bag because of the international legs. An employee got us checked in, bags tagged, and convinced us to carry on one more bag.

Excellent 9.6

Pros: Crew, food and entertainment. Seats were okay.

Cons: Our Kochi to Dubai flight was late, the bus at Dubai airport was extremely slow and we reached Dubai airport two minutes prior to the closing of the boarding of the onward flight. We had to literally run to catch our onward flight to Boston. However, the ground staff at Dubai were excellent, called the gate staff to alert them about us and managed to get us on board. Surprisingly, our luggage was also loaded on to the same flight and we couldn't believe we got the luggage in Boston! Overall, all went well.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: everything from security check, boarding, crew, food was excellent, I have no complaints about my trip from Dubai to NewYork, I wish it was the same between Mumbai to Dubai..again Emirates need to train their staff @ Mumbai airport, It was one of my bad experience ever on any airlines or airport.

Cons: everything is great, no reason to complain.

Good 7.6

Pros: Everything else was good besides the below content.

Cons: The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere.

Good 6.0

Pros: The crew was wonderful, very hospitable and friendly.

Cons: The seating in economy class is abysmal. The seats are extremely small and the rows are to close together. There is no leg room. The seat cushioning is almost nonexistent. It's like sitting and leaning back on a board. On this last trip I had a window seat. I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs.

Pros: Crew were very helpful

Cons: First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good

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.
