Pros: I’ve been on dozens of flights prior to this one, this is the first flight I’ve really enjoyed. The service was so good that I was smiling in my seat thinking how great this is. The food was delicious! And free! And very high quality. Coconut, pistachios, frittata, muesli, omelette. Amazing!

Cons: Best airline ever! Add movies though, everyone loves staring into lit screens while the world passes by them, quite literally in this case.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

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 the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes 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 can'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.
