Mediocre 3.5

Cons: The flight was an hour late and then we waited on the plane while they unloaded all the cargo bins to find three golfers bags who evidently did not make the flight. That extra time made us miss our connecting flight to the US. We spent almost 3 hours in the Sydney airport getting the run around on what we were supposed to do. When we checked in Queenstown for our flight the person at the desk must have know we would not make our flight as she did not give us a boarding pass for the Sydney to the US flight, but gave no directions on what to do if it was missed. I mentioned our connecting flight and the close connection to the flight attendant and she said it was not their fault.

I had boasted to my fam that Quantas (was famous in my memory) as having economy seats that felt more like other airlines Business Seats. My kids were eager to experience the "Quantas" seats. I was severely dissapointed to find that your economy seats, now, are even smaller than the Chinese seats we regularly fly (we are in our 5th year of ex-pat assignment in China). You should have seen the look on my kids faces. Evidently, i must have "talked Quantas up too much", because there was a great deal of dissapointment. We will travel back to NZ and Aus., this fall, but will no longer prioritize Quantas as our airline of choise. I guess times change, and a little bit of nastalgia lost.... :(

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Nice, short flight. Smooth ride.

Cons: Had a middle seat between two very large women. Couldn't be helped, was a full flight.

Excellent 8.5

Pros: The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay.

Cons: Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable.

SFO
EUG
Good 6.0

Cons: It was the shortest flight of my itinerary. My last flight home. We sat on the plane for nearly 45 minutes before take off and it was late getting home. Totally ridiculous. Every flight in and out of Eugene is ridiculous like that

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing. They are a bunch of criminals.

Cons: They are a bunch of criminals. They stole $320 from us in baggage fees, just because we didn't check in online. THIS WAS MENTIONED NOWHERE ON THEIR WEBSITE OR DURING BOOKING OR IN EMAILS THEY SENT BEDORE THE FLIGHT. They are a cheap criminal airline and I will never fly with them again.

Okay 4.6

Pros: Before purchasing tickets, i confirmed with Jetstar agent that i could purchase bag fees anytime before the flight. I was even quoted a price. 3 weeks before my flight i went on to prepay for 1 piece of luggage and they wouldn't honor the quoted price. I had to pay almost double! BEWARE of luggage fees!

Cons: Huge luggage fees. Won't honor price quoted

Okay 5.6

Cons: No legroom, no complementary snacks or drink. No entertainment.

Okay 5.6

Cons: The flight was delayed two hours but I didn't get this information until after check in. I know the airline doesn't always know ahead of time so it's not a big deal, but if the option was available to notify passengers in advance, that would have been nice.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: The baggage fees ended up costing $100 more than the flight.... I guess this is a lesson in reading the fine print!? Seems like Kayak and Jetstar could have been a lot more forthcoming. Methods seem predatory and I will avoid Jetstar in future. I feel ripped off!

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.

Cons: Service was rude and dishonest - charged me $170 extra for dishonest reasons

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.
