Cons: I paid an extra 30 USD for preferred seating on a Sydney-Christchurch flight, and I sat in 1A . It did not provide the extra legroom as advertised because the door jutted out into my leg space. Add on to this that it was freezing in my seat, to the point where I had to borrow a blanket from my seat mate. I have one last flight on Jet Star, and I'm not sure I'll fly with them again.

Okay 4.8

Pros: Efficient boarding.

Cons: NO legroom in standard seats. I'm 6' tall and my knees touched the seat in front of me when seated all the way back in the seat. Closest spaced seating I've seen on an airline.

Excellent 9.6

Cons: Internet service was terribly spotty, but then again you're flying over vast amounts of ocean. Other than that, comfy and reliable flight that I could actually sleep on.

LAX
Excellent 9.3

Pros: Loved the amount of leg room and food choices.

Cons: Maybe more offers for drinks throughout the flight. Check in of the bags was automated in some areas but there didn’t appear to be sufficient staff to assist. That and as travellers we tend to move slower that a Virgin worker would so I couldn’t put all my bags on board. More assistance at checkin

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
