KAYAK’s top tips for finding a cheap flight from Seattle to Auckland

  • When flying from Seattle to Auckland, you’ll definitely have a layover or two since no nonstop flights cover this route. Your layover destination (s) will be influenced by the airline you opt to travel with. If you board a one-stop Air New Zealand flight, you’ll layover at Vancouver (YVR). In contrast, if you board a two-stop Qantas Airways flight, you’ll layover at San Francisco (SFO) and Sydney (SYD).
  • Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) features one main terminal split into six concourses – A, B, C, D, North Satellite, and South Satellite. The concourse you’ll be served at will be influenced by the airline you travel with. If you travel with Air Canada or United Airlines, you’ll depart from Concourse A. On the contrary, if you opt to journey with Emirates or Qatar Airways, you’ll depart from the South Satellite.
  • Qatar Airways is the airline you should travel with if you’re eco-conscious. This is because, time and again, this airline has showcased its commitment to safeguarding the environment. To minimize its carbon footprint, this airline operates a fleet of young and fuel-efficient planes. It has partnered with IATA and Climate Care to launch a voluntary offset program for its clients, invested heavily in sustainable aviation fuel research, and reduced wastage from its flight cabins.
  • Your carry-on baggage allowance will depend on your fare when traveling with Air New Zealand. If you hold an Economy fare, you get one carry-on bag plus one small personal item, while if you hold a Premium Economy or Business Premier fare, you can bring on two bags plus one small item. To be allowed onboard, your carry-on bag’s dimensions should not exceed 46.5 inches. Your carry-on can weigh up to 15 lbs if you hold an Economy fare ticket and 30 lbs if you hold a Premium Economy or Business Premier fare.
  • If you want to travel to SEA using public transport, the best way is via Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail, which connects the airport and downtown Seattle. Besides being the least expensive means of getting to the airport, this option is not subject to Seattle’s traffic conditions. On Mondays to Saturdays, this service operates from 5:00 am to 1:00 am. On Sundays, they begin services an hour later and halt an hour earlier.

Flight attendant was incredible. Very efficient, friendly and pleasant. Patricia was one of the best I have ever seen. Please give her a big raise!

Delayed multiple times. Boarding was ok but getting off the aircraft was a mess. So disorganized with staff trying to help the elderly but completely blocking path for anyone else to move. Bathroom was disgusting, probably caused by one of the customers but staff couldn't care less to help clean it. No one wanted to use it since the floor was completely soaked so everyone just lined up the other restroom while the staff just chit chat with each other while looking at us.

LIT to DFW - 3 hours late; the entire plane had been boarded before they told us there was a delay due to a weather-related ground stop in Dallas. DFW to MAY - 2+ hours late due to A/C needing to be repaired after everyone had boarded, then when we finally reach the runway, the First Officer timed out and we had to taxi all the way back to the gate and wait for a new one. I arrived in New Orleans 5+ hours later than I should have. Return flights were completely cancelled; rebooked through the app to fly through CLT instead of DFW. MSY to CLT had no issues, but CLT to LIT was delayed 1.25 hrs because flight attendants had not arrived to the airport yet. At least they didn’t make us all sit on the plane to wait for them. I should have driven.

Tray table was filthy when I sat down. I needed to have someone come clean it because there was food and stains on it WiFi didn’t work after paying for in flight WiFi Food was terrible and was not filling at all Chicken was rubbery Flight attendant had an attitude, interrupted me and wasn’t able to answer basic questions about the food selection such as “does the chicken have red sauce in it”. If your flight attendants are not going to know what is in the meals so we can make an educated decision based on dietary restrictions, they shouldn’t be on the plane. My 1.5 year old niece was sleeping and dropped her binkie. I went on the ground under the chairs looking for it. It was at that time that she came up to me as I’m CLEARLY on all 4s with a flashlight and said “I need to get by”. I said one moment please I’m getting something from under the seat (while my head was literally under the seat). Her reply was “no you need to move now” and proceeded to almost push me out of the way. I looked up and all I saw was her toes under my eyes. When I looked in front of me, her private parts were inches away from my face. I then made a comment “you couldn’t waited 2 seconds?” and her response was, “no I need to use the bathroom”. I understand that and would never want to be the reason someone couldn’t get to the bathroom but I was under the seat. She could’ve gone around the other way instead of harassing me, basically placing her private parts on my head and borderline pushing me out of the way. You don’t pay (especially this much) for this deplorable experience. This was by far the worst experience I have ever had on American. I will be absolutely thinking twice and thrice about flying American Airlines again. I would rather pay more to fly delta because at least I know their WiFi will work and their flight attendants won’t have a terrible attitude for no reason, nor will they act the way this woman did. Unacceptable.

Unacceptable.

Liked - nothing. Disliked - delayed 35+ min sitting on the plane. Caused me to miss my connection in Charlotte. American Airlines is the worst US Air Carrier company with atrocious customer service.

Worst situation ever! I booked my tickets for this trip on Alaska Airlines. I guess AA is a partner and we flew nonstop from Eugene to PHX on an AA jet. I had to pay for luggage from PHX to EUG. And this was an Alaska Airlines reservation paid for with Alaska airlines credit card! Got to the PHX airport and was not able to check bags because of some weird issue with the AA software. My reservation had to be the-entered by the agent. I will never pick another American Airlines flight on the Alaska Airlines website. While on vacation, I tried to upgrade our seats for the trip home. The request just buffered and never went through. I tried four times and was charged four times on my credit card. The card was charged but the seats were never changed. What a wreck!

Left from gate 30 minutes before flight. Never been late to a flight ever. It says 15 minutes before explicitly on the ticket.

I like the boarding process, it was fast. The seat doesn’t have a TV for a long flight and food wasn’t served, just snacks.

Use planes with TVs on flights over 4 hours. The free entertainment was a cheap in between solution for a very long flight that you don't even bother providing meals or decent snacks.
