Pros: Strong crew service is the highlight of flying Air New Zealand. Plane comfort is good, with nice ambient lighting, decent seats and reasonably spacious toilets. At least for now, they have in-seat entertainment screens with lots of current offerings. Our flight had free wi-fi, a real plus.

Cons: Boarding with Air New Zealand at Heathrow was complex and poorly organised when compared to the smooth and efficient process at LAX. This has been the case each time I have flown this same route with this airline.

Pros: Crew were amazing, food was delicious

Cons: Boarding was delayed with no explanation, we sat once boarded waiting to take off not knowing what the further delay was, ended up arriving and clearing customs an hour behind schedule. This is becoming more common with my flights with Virgin Australia.

Pros: This review is less about the actual flight and more about the lengths to which Virgin Australia went to get us to our destination as quickly as possible. Cyclone Gita made landfall the night before we were supposed to depart from Wellington on through to Phoenix, Arizona. Our first flight was canceled because of the storm, and we used the travel agency to get on the next flight out. Then that flight got significantly delayed, which would cause us to miss our connections. We spent time talking to the booking agents at VA and, although they were helpful, said that they could not rebook subsequent segments as it was all booked together. We decided that we would just get on the delayed flight and then have them rebook us once we got to our destination. However, later that same day I got a call from VA, and they informed me that they had kept us on the delayed flight but re-booked the following segments to get us to our final destination as soon as possible. This involved an overnight stay in Australia, which we not only did not have to pay for, but were also given $50 vouchers (per person) to eat at the hotel restaurant, a cab voucher to get there, and specific instructions about how to catch our next flight. I was quite prepared to have a very hectic journey home, but with their level of service they basically turned a stressful delay into an extra night of vacation. I am very pleased with how they handled our situation, as the problems were weather-related and out of their control.

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
