Okay 5.0

Cons: It was very discouraging having to pay almost as much as our flight for our small checked baggage - and it was confusing regarding how much we had to pay, I still don't understand what it was we actually paid for. There was not clear indication about this policy when I purchased the ticket, and we were traveling without internet access and unable to add a bag to our booking before hand. I've flown hundreds of times and never encountered this kind of fee. This frustration alone will likely lead me to choose another company next time.

Pros: Loved the amount of leg room and food choices.

Cons: Maybe more offers for drinks throughout the flight. Check in of the bags was automated in some areas but there didn’t appear to be sufficient staff to assist. That and as travellers we tend to move slower that a Virgin worker would so I couldn’t put all my bags on board. More assistance at checkin

Cons: Check in process is extremely slow with long lines. You are not able to check bags and are charged significant amounts to check in which cost even higher if you do it at the airport. Anything other Jen water is charged while on the flight.

Cons: I had to pay $160 for luggage. I didn't want to check it, I wanted to carry on my backpack and small luggage case. Didn't realize BOTH had to be below 7 kg which is absolutely nothing. The check in man was rude and definitely could've helped a backpacking student as myself out... the flight was practically empty I don't think weight of luggage mattered!

Cons: I wish I could pay for my suitcase at the airport based on what it weighs, rather than having to guess ahead of time. They ran out of some food options. They should have water on the food/beverage cart.

Pros: The ground staff at Honolulu check in was wonderful. The plane was clean and comfortable for the long flight.

Cons: The flight was delayed by almost 17 hours! This caused us great havoc, as we obviously lost (and had paid for) our airport hotel booking. And after being up all day then flying all night, we made our connecting flight of 4 hours by five minutes. Jetstar offered no explanation, no apologies, nothing!

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.
