Cons: Their baggage fees !! Watch out, you can really get stung ! They don't really do a good job of explaining their rules on the web site. . I had a family of three traveling and bought 20 kilos of baggage allowance each . Didn't know if we could share the weight allowance between us or not. Also was not clear you could not just purchase another bag allowance at airport , although they do say purchasing at the airport will be more expensive. Got that right !! They charge $25 a kilo for overage at the counter !! So any overage adds up fast.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid.

Okay 5.0

Pros: Efficient boarding and grateful for the spare seat with the baby on our lap. Crew was nice enough.

Cons: We waited for a $9 toastie for 25 minutes- and had to remind the crew to get it. Disappointed that they are so cheap the only free thing on a 10 hour flight was water- after paying for checked bags, one coffee, and one sandwich, the extras made them more expensive then other "non budget" airlines.

Okay 4.4

Pros: Flight attendants were friendly and responsive.

Cons: 1. Better seats than mine flew empty, while I sat wedged in a full row, behind a wailing infant and ahead of a kicking toddler. 2. The meal choice was between a rice bowl and a salad, both served bereft of any sides, bread, or dessert. 3. We were late again, although not so badly as last time.

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.
