Mediocre 3.3

Cons: Late boarding, deceptive price shrouding practices (charging you $160/bag if you don't book it in 3 hours ahead of your flight) when there is no reason to support it. No entertainment. Poor drinks service. Cramped seats.

ZQN
MEL
Excellent 8.5

Pros: Crew were fantastic... efficient, welcoming, professional.

Cons: We were SHOCKED to learn that we could not purchase additional baggage weight allowance online (were not allowed to check in online), and when we got to the counter to check in, were told that each additional kilogram of baggage weight over 20kilos (per person) would cost us $25!!! This is outrageous. We are traveling in Australia/NZ for 23 days with golf clubs and many bags, spending lots of money in these countries, and were very upset to learn of this archaic policy.

Mediocre 3.0

Cons: Bring your own water and food. Nothing is complimentary or speedy. Don't bring coffee, hot liquids are not allowed. Also, make sure you booked the option with a checked bag or it's charged as excess and it's an exuberant amount.

OK 4.0

Pros: Thus question does not apply to Jetstsr.

Cons: Very old outdated aircrafts, very poor customer service, always fishing for money through baggage limit excesses, baggage limit is ridiculously low, aircraft garbage often found in sesat povkets from previous flights ... overall a very low class of airlines.

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.

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.
