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!

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: When we booked flight on kayak we were not made aware that we had to buy baggage allowance. When we got to airport and went to check luggage they charged us $900 USD for four normal sized bags, one bag each. Called customer service, waited 25 minutes and then rude agent refused to listen to my concern about this or connect me to anyone that could actually help us. Agents at desk first told me there was no supervisor there I could talk to and then I asked one lady there and she said she was supervisor. I asked if she had another number she could call since I was on hold so long and she flat out lied and said even they have to call that same number I had to get help. She then just walked away and completely ignored me. Not a single person for Jetstar seemed to think $225 per bag was unreasonable or showed any hint of compassion or desire to try and help us. They didn't seem to think it was odd that my bag that weighs 1/4 of what I do cost more to fly then I did. Never fly with them, go with any other carrier. Don't give these greedy and predatory punks a single cent.

Okay 4.3

Cons: 160 dollars to check a bag. Kayak or Jetstar should warn you about this fee. Plan ahead, or use the cash to get a better airline. The whole Jetstar crew looked miserable.

Cons: The seat leg room is getting smaller and smaller. You can't put your seat back- you'll crush the person behind! And I'm short!!

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.
