Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The accommodations were unexpected and amazing!"
Pros: "the flight was direct from CHC to MEL and it was on time"
Cons: "Even though i was booked on Air NZ, the flight was operated through Virgin Australia. This was only an issue when i tried to check in at Air NZ and was directed over to Virgin Australia. Once i found the right ticket counter to check in, i found that there was an extra baggage fee of NZ$130 that i had to pay to check my bag. Also, dinner seemed to be included for just about everyone sitting around me, and it was not included for me. I don't remember having the option of booking dinner with my flight. The agent at the Virgin Australia counter mentioned that this often happens when booking flights through the websites that are not the carrier's direct website. I have used others before, and not had these same issues... oh well - i guess that's what i get for booking through FlightNetwork.com. I'll probably go directly to airline websites in the future."

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"

Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."
Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the older Japanese attendant’s attitude in helping everyone onboard. A family sitting 2 seats in front moved around a lot while putting their baby and toddler to sleep for the night flight. The attendant discreetly gave those of us earplugs and eye masks to help us shut out the noise. Also, her smile and pleasant attitude made it an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I had to pay extra to get an aisle seat."
Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."
Pros: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"
Pros: "I was excited to see some notorious places as we flew into Queenstown....however, I wouldn't have known the places if I hadn't been sitting next to someone that knew the area."

Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."
Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."
Pros: "The pilot would tell us as we were flying over different mountains, regions etc, and the flight was not at all crowded, and there is so much more seat space than on any domestic American flight I’ve ever flown!"
Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."
Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."
Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, airplane was clean, flight attendants friendly and attentive. Very pleasant flying experience"
Pros: "Checking in was a breeze. There wasn't any door or entertainment we tried to rate. crew was very good."
Cons: "Was surprised that we had to pay for water. Seats were a bit tighter than most airlines. My husband and my arms overlapped in the seats."
Cons: "Terrible exchange rate and high transaction costs for food puchases made on plane."
Cons: "The carry-on baggage limits are small (one bag maximum as opposed to most airlines that allow one bag and a personal item). The fee for checking a bag once at the airport is insane ($160 AUD). Will never fly Jetstar again. Easily worth the extra few dollars to fly Virgin or Air NZ."
Pros: "Easy check in, on time flight"
Cons: "Had to pay for snack or drink Had to pay to check bag, could carry-on roller bag"
Pros: "It was good. Nothing extra. It was efficient. We arrived safely on time."
Cons: "Seats were extremeley uncomfortable, crew was rude and spoke down to the customers and even yelled at them!"
Cons: "Charge you for bags Rude staff"
Cons: "I traveled jetstar a few days ago Wellington Goldie with a surfboard bag. Upon checking in I was told the bag would be $385 to fly with! If I had registered it online it would have been $50. This is the most absurd thing I've ever heard. Unfortunately I Had to pay it. DONT FLY JETStar!!!!!!"
Pros: "Don't bother to put food and entertainment on a 35 minute flight!!"
Pros: "Jetstar notified 2 hour delay and when we reached airport after 2 hours they said flight is cancelled. We had to go to Auckland anyways to catch international flight next day morning. They refused to pay for alternate flights with other airline. It was a Terrible experience. Will never use Jetstar again."
Pros: "Comfotable flight, Good landing."
Cons: "Though one of the stewardess' was professional she was a little impersonal. That statement is a little harsh as she was very young. I am sure as she gains experience she will become great at what she does. Maybe a big smile would help when she addresses passages."
Pros: "I always worry about Jetstar, bad experiences in the past. Just glad me and my luggage got to where we were meant to be!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The airplane was perfectly clean and new."
Cons: "There’s no entreterniment neither food or beverages."

Pros: "The seat was extraordinarily uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seat spacing was the worst ever. Aisle very narrow."

Pros: "Less expensive flight"
Cons: "Charging for tea/coffee/water is over the top."
Pros: "Leg room was sufficient, boarding fast and plane next to new"
Cons: "Luggage limits- but that’s life!"
Pros: "Easy check in, bag drop and courteous staff"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food or water"
Cons: "Baggage policies were not clear. I thought you got one carry on and one checked bag up to 20 kg. But then when checking in online, it appeared you needed to pay for baggage based on weight. I tried to do it online, but wouldn't accept my payment. Got to airport, long line, tried to use kiosk to complete check in, wouldn't allow me to. Waited in line, only to be told I had a payment due and had to go to service desk. My friend was checking in with me, and did not have to pay for luggage. Meanwhile the gate agent changed her mind, said she could accept my payment there, then we had to go through the exercise of lightening our carry ons (which we had made heavier to avoid excess baggage fee). So I ended up paying for bags, friend did not, yet we had the same bags/weights. Flight was delayed 15 minutes per the kiosk, when asked gate agent, she said it was not, but in reality it was. not a pleasant experience, policies not clear and not uniformly enforced. Flight itself was ok. I probably will not fly Jetstar again."
Cons: "Was 3 hours late with no reason"
Pros: "Quick and comfortable. Arrived 30 mins ahead of schedule"
Cons: "$120 bag fee!! Plane was late. Ticket line took over an hour. Paying bag fee was a separate line took one-half hour. Gate was changed had to move 1/4 mile."
Cons: "We were charged $225 nzd for our luggage at the airport which was much more than our plane tickets."
Cons: "Baggage and seating policy."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "First and last time I will ever fly with Jetstar. Flight delayed 2 hours. Flight 30 minutes late taking off. Cramped as H.E double L. Circled around the southern alps with a warning that we may not be able to land in Queenstown due to the hot conditions. Eventually announced they definitely couldn't land in Queenstown and would divert. Spent an hour on the tarmac in Christchurch and finally announced it was cool enough to land in Queenstown. Arrived 7 hours after the booked arrival time, along with a further 2.5 hours drive home. Missed a planned social function. Never, ever again. Even if they offered free flights. NEVER."
Cons: "I tried to check in on line. I guessed luggage weight thinking I could settle up at airport. We I got to airport airline wouldn't allow changes and charged me a higher rate. It cost me $171 for excess luggage"
Pros: "Direct flight to Queenstown"
Cons: "This airline has cheap fares but beware of the extras. It took a while for me to figure out their baggage policy and fees. If you don't pay for baggage ahead of time it will cost a lot at the airport Also, no complementary beverage Everything costs extra on this airline even ana"
Pros: "No redeeming factors with awful customer service. I missed my connecting flight due to another flight being late. As a result, I called them to notify them I would not be able to make the flight and asked to switch flights. After explaining the situation, they refused to waive the flight change fee and even charged additional fees even though I had no control of the situation. They took advantage of the situation I was forced into and have no ethics. Absolute garbage."
Cons: "See above. A terrible airline who treats paying customers with disrespect and takes advantage of the situation. I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Italy a okay flight"
Cons: "Don't have WiFi connection"
Pros: "This was the our first time flying with Jetstar a we were very pleased. The loading process was great quick and smooth. Its unbelievable to think that more airlines do not load back to front. The crew was extremely nice and cheerful and made the experience a great one for my wife and I."
Pros: "Awesome and thoughtful service. On time. Saved a bunch of money! And the in-flight snacks were a worthwhile treat. Definitely buy the bundle - seat, bags and voucher for food. Otherwise, the little charges can add up. Oh - and my daughter accidentally left a personal item on the plane, although we waited for a bit, they found it and brought it to us. So thoughtful."
Cons: "No complaints about the airline. But very crowded! Lots of people are enjoying this airline!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process and friendly crew"
Cons: "Buy luggage online! When we bought our tickets, the price per bag online was $15-25 pending the weight and size of the bags for checked luggage. Most airlines give you one checked bag for free, but whatever. $50 for two bags is not a huge deal. What I didn't know, and they didn't specify, is that was the online only price. When I got to the airport, they quoted me $225 for 2 bags! 225!! Both bags were around 40lbs each. Then they told us that if each bag weighed 6lbs less, the price would be $120. Let's just say our carryons ended up getting packed to the brim... And they still charged us $120. Ridiculous."
Pros: "the staff and the boarding process"
Cons: "Unexpectedly being charged a large amount of money for the luggage."
Cons: "Check I'm rudeness...... absolutely despised employee"
Pros: "Smooth quick flight!"
Cons: "Wish we had known you don't even get a free cup of soda, water, or coffee.. But a short flight so was ok... No frills, cramped, but ok for a short trip! (husband is 6.1 feet and couldn't put knees together in front of him)"
Pros: "It was all on time. A good flight."
Pros: "First time flyer very good"
Pros: "On time departure/arrival"
Cons: "Poor/no communication when flights were delayed, then cancelled, then delayed, then cancelled again! Resulted in waiting at the airport until after 12pm and very little of any sleep."
Cons: "Baggage fees, but that is to be expected now"
Cons: "The airline attitude. Aggressive and punitive, Absolutively not even sightly friendly. Much worst than RyanAir."
Pros: "Ease of boarding n checking in."
Cons: "Took awhile before we found out the gate. Not ur fault but too many crying babies on flt"
Pros: "Nothing from special services and checkin"
Cons: "We had 8 flights booked and requested 2 wheel chairs and 1 checked bag for each passenger for each flight. We had no problem with other airlines. We were told by the Jetstar employee on the flight from from Auckland that there was no checked baggsge requested Not likely from our end because we had 8 flights in a 3 week period. We had our bags weighed at special services and was told we were limited to 15 kg for a checked bag. One bag supposedly weighed on that scale 17.6 kg but the same bag showed it weighed 13.9 kg when we checked it in. We were forced to pay $70 per bag for a total of $140. We need a refundnd immediately. Funny, on the return trip to Auckland our tickets showed 1 checked bag per passenger and we'were limited to 20 kg per bag on Jetstar. How can an airline operate this way. Your survey is ridiculous because you ask for ratings on nonapplicable items. ."
Pros: "check in quik; flight early; decent price"
Cons: "very cramped; no frills"
Pros: "Not but that stood out that was good. The crew es nice."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and everything including water is at an additional cost. The baggage is extra unless you are just taking the clothes on you back."
Pros: "The price, service, punctuality and the excellent service of all personal involved. Excellent service"
Cons: "A little de organized the boarding process but I have to say caused by passengers behavior, in addition some of the passengers didn't follow the luggage rule and nothing happened. I would like to suggest some information during the fligh. Where were be and what could we be seeing during our flight."
