Pros: Flight was good. Good snacks and beverages. There was no entertainment so we were on our own.. Plane was comfortable

Cons: The cabin baggage restrictions are very, very strict. 7kg (15lbs) limit for carryon combined with your personal item. So strict that they take the time to weigh your luggage before going through the gate. Very frustrating because a small case already weighs up to 6.2lbs. Add your chargers, camera, phone, voltage converter, book and you are over the limit. Flight attendants were grumpy and the over head storage was occupied by the flight attendants personal belongings and items for the plane. Very little space for our 1 carryon.

Mediocre 2.3

Cons: We were charged $215 at check in to check our luggage because we hadn't "ticked" that we'd be bringing luggage when we purchased our tickets. We purchased our tickets on Kayak and never were we warned or even been informed that this would be the case. The fee for baggage turned out to be $70 per bag plus $15 per Kg for each Kg over 15 Kg. Which is absurd. Any regular flight allows bag up to 23 Kg before additional charges. This is extortion. Yet there was nothing we could do unless we wanted to leave our bags in Queenstown.

AKL
Mediocre 3.6

Pros: We selected this flight with no knowledge of this airline, as we were coming from the states. Being international traveling for three weeks obviously we had some luggage with us. This domestic flight does not allow any free check in, and you are only allowed 7 kg as a carry-on. You also have to pre-pay for your check in baggage before you get to the airport otherwise you are charged three times the price. If you don't know all of this before you go, you will be in big trouble. I do not recommend this airline for international travelers.

Pros: I liked that there was food available and that they offered complimentary snacks and drinks. Some of the crew members were nice and offered good service. I liked that they offered some type of entertainment and free wifi.

Cons: I didn't like that some of the crew members were not very nice. I also disliked that some of the crew members drove the food/beverage cart violently through the isles and saw as one of the crew members rammed into another person's leg, to only say "oh sorry" and kept on going. This same crew member missed picking up the trash from an entire row and was throwing trash on the floor. She was more interested in caring for a baby on board (not sure if it was her daughter or family member) than the rest of the passengers. I also didn't like the seats were so close to each other, the person in front of me almost hit my face when he reclined his seat all the way back. There wasn't much room to breath let alone stretch.

As I said, in all seriousness, there was not an inch of space to move without saying excuse me to the person beside me. I must add that whoever made the rules for seating space between the rows on the aircraft must have been paid off heavily. The flight attendants were great.

Unlike flights in the States that we are used to, if you did not specify that you would check a bag at the time of purchase ( we purchased 1 month in advance!), what would normally cost you maybe $40 cost us $140! For this reason, we will either not recommend this flight or warn our friends if they insist on flying Jetstar. Also, the leg room was horrible on the flight/

Pros: Short & sweet flight, especially since a local delicious cookie was provided.

Cons: Boarding was a bit of a pain in the rear.

I ended up wearing two jackets to make the cut off.

Pros: I was sitting in an exit row with tons of space. The men flight attendants were fantastic! On moved two boxes and we were able to prop our feet up. They were so attentive to us I felt as if I was in first class!

Cons: I made a mistake on booking. Called them immediately. Not the least bit helpful of sympathetic. Ridiculous baggage policy and charges. Will avoid this airline in the future unless it's an emergency.

Pros: Nothing in particular--it was a short flight. I did appreciate that the crew went ahead and turned on the entertainment system even though it was a short transit time (we were on a plane meant for trans-Pacific travel--only reason it was available in the first place).

Cons: No complaints here.

Good 6.6

Pros: I liked that there was food available and that they offered complimentary snacks and drinks. Some of the crew members were nice and offered good service. I liked that they offered some type of entertainment and free wifi.

Cons: I didn't like that some of the crew members were not very nice. I also disliked that some of the crew members drove the food/beverage cart violently through the isles and saw as one of the crew members rammed into another person's leg, to only say "oh sorry" and kept on going. This same crew member missed picking up the trash from an entire row and was throwing trash on the floor. She was more interested in caring for a baby on board (not sure if it was her daughter or family member) than the rest of the passengers. I also didn't like the seats were so close to each other, the person in front of me almost hit my face when he reclined his seat all the way back. There wasn't much room to breath let alone stretch.

OK 5.0

Pros: flight crew are good, other general categories are average.

Cons: Boarding in both Sydney-Auckland & Auckland-Vancouver are disorganized. No clear indication of when & where to line up. No flight delay message to explain when boarding time was long overdue. In particular, for the Auckland - Vancouver flight, one ground staff was telling economy passengers (in rather rude express) they were in the wrong line except there was never announcement. Overall, disappointed.

Pros: food and crew service

Cons: Business class Seats are uncomfortable, cushion is not that soft, sides are narrow and too tall, hard square arm rest on the right, drink tray is behind your shoulder, hard to fasten seat belt. Ride was very rough in both directions. Not worth the price paid.

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.
