Pros: Nothing! I couldn't check my bag on line (cheaper) and at the airport I was also charged for my carryon, which has been fine on other airlines throughout my trip, and for years of European travel. 3 1/2 hour flight and all that was offered was coffee, tea (I drink neither) and water, no food, no entertainment. Flight attendants spent most of the time in the back of the plane in their cubby talking, not taking care of those in the plane.

Cons: I was seated in the aisle seat in the back row, next to the oONE functioning toilet so I spent 3 1/2 hours with people's crotches and butts in my face. The flight crew spent most of the time in the area by the toilets talking loudly so I heard all about their boyfriends, who they were sleeping with, their vacation to Fiji and their thought and opinions of the passengers on the plane.

Mediocre 2.6

Pros: Landing.

Cons: Huge delays on check-in. System failures but also elderly people not knowing the check in process and causing further delays. People taking too much luggage inside the cabin. No food options for gluten free. No water served. Smooth flight though. Check-in staff at luggage short tempered.

Excellent 9.6

Cons: Internet service was terribly spotty, but then again you're flying over vast amounts of ocean. Other than that, comfy and reliable flight that I could actually sleep on.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: As good as you can get, considering it was economy. I think that the 787 made it that way--wonderful plane! I love Jet Star--being able to up-grade to comfort without much problem.

Cons: Ordering food, even though a better value than most cut-rate airlines, is a pain to remember, and was difficult for some on board. When you say there will be no other food, people don't want to believe you.

Good 7.0

Pros: Quick and easy boarding at AVV Airport.

Cons: Seats were slightly uncomfortable but fine for short flight. There was no entertainment. The crew could have been more enthusiastic.

Good 6.5

Cons: They charge a huge amount for checked baggage. I would’ve flown another airline that included check-in baggage for free.

Okay 5.0

Cons: Preferred seats in economy class are very uncomfortable if your row is full. Long, miserable flight.

Okay 5.6

Pros: The seat was super uncomfortable and they switched out flights 3 times so the layovers were extremely long.

Cons: Not switching our flights three times and not accommodating us like we had originally paid for.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: The crew was fantastic. They were incredibly polite and accommodating. This was my first time flying for more than three hours (15 hours from Houston to Auckland) and it really could not have gone much better.

Cons: Always need a little more legroom in economy but it's a small sacrifice for getting an affordable flight.

LAX
Excellent 8.0

Pros: The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely.

Cons: I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: The crew was great but the seats were not.

Cons: Roomier seats and meals should be served a little bit closer in between

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.
