Okay 4.0

Cons: At Sydney, 6-7 check-in agents for probably 400+ passengers, nearly an hour wait. Airline model is cheap seats, then charge like hell for everything else. Want seat selection or movies or preassigned seat or uncramped seat? Pay up. Ended up assigned next to toilet on a 10-hr red-eye flight.

Mediocre 3.6

Cons: Flight was delayed by 45 minutes due to **insert one of many excuses here** and then Jetstar misplaced my luggage ( I arrived at 3 pm into Melbourne and my luggage arrived 10.30pm so I spent one of my two nights waiting for the bag to show up)

CNS
Mediocre 3.0

Cons: They wouldnt let me board because they said I was 5 min late, yet I was 30 min before the flight. The internal Brisbane airport shuttle had a problem. They should have let me board because this was the airport’s fault. They charged me 75 extra dollars too. Very lame

Good 6.0

Pros: It landed safe.

Cons: You have to pay for everything... water, blanket and so on. Air conditioning is quite cold, so if you don’t bring warm clothing you might conceder to buy the blanket.

SYD
Excellent 10.0

Pros: The crew was very friendly & everything seemed clean.

Cons: Being able to gate check my stroller would have been really helpful. I’ve always been able to with other airlines & the website says you can so I was surprised that I couldn’t. Carrying two young kids & all the carry on luggage by myself through all the airports & international checkpoints without my stroller was *very* challenging. I would have planned differently had I known.

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.

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.
