Pros: Boarding for Any KA flight is excellent. They actually tell the crowders to sit down, which makes it easier to figure out if you're supposed to be in line or not.

Cons: This flight was a Delta flight, with Delta crew on a Delta plane. Delta is great for domestic, but this crew was definitely not a Korean Air crew. The result is a lower quality of service, with more than half of the flight attendants not being nearly as cordial as they should have been.

Cons: The 1st 6 hours I had to keep calling for water as no one came around. More movie options.

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.
