Okay 5.2

Pros: It got me there.

Cons: In regards to the flight: you have to download the VA app to get any entertainment on your own personal device and they do not have powerpoints on the plane to charge your device and the seats are very tight and at an uncomfortable pitch. Otherwise: The baggage situation is out of control. I've never had an international flight that didn't include a checked bag and did not even give you the option to add a checked bag when you are checking in. I booked my flight through Kayak which actually booked through BYOjet--whom you should avoid at all costs. With this booking I never got asked about my baggage requirements or had the option to add baggage--so when I went to check-in on Virgin Australia I was surprised that nothing was included and I needed to add it by calling VA. I called VA and they said they cannot add it over the phone and that I need to do it at the airport at the cost of $130 (!!!!) if plane had the load capacity available (!!!!) and to maybe give my booking agency a call to see if they could help. BYOjet had me on hold for 15 minutes before I gave up and e-mailed (they didn't respond) and I eventually got a hold of them on the phone a couple of hours later--they could not provide any assistance in this situation and they do not have the capacity to ask about baggage needs during online booking (seriously, get a new web developer in that case). In short--do not book through BYOjet and avoid Virgin Australia if you want a pleasant check-in and flight experience.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: The crew is amazing. Always friendly, smiling and happy to oblige. Love the New Zealand hospitality. The inflight entertainment has so many programmes to watch, and the list of music options to listen in to is well stocked. Food is excellent. Obviously overate in the 9 1/2 hour flight.

Good 6.0

Cons: It was the shortest flight of my itinerary. My last flight home. We sat on the plane for nearly 45 minutes before take off and it was late getting home. Totally ridiculous. Every flight in and out of Eugene is ridiculous like that

Good 7.2

Pros: All the basics were good- comfort, service, and the flight itself.

Cons: The fight was significantly delayed due to weather, which is not their fault, but they did not update us or the departure time toward the end, which they clearly knew and didn't communicate that it would be further delayed. They forgot cups for tea and coffee, so we only had water or juice.

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.
