Pros: The crew was amazing and the seat arrangement was well done.

Cons: I would have liked knowing the seat I upgraded to had solid unmoveable arm rests. Also the exit rows were not boarded first, and since I had no seats in front of me my items were not close at hand bc the overhead storage was already taken.

Excellent 9.3

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

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.
