Cons: Dark haired male crew member extremely rude except to two in row I58 & J58 who got 5 beers before departure,Food before everyone else, a gift pack from 1st class given before landing. I was refused extra bottled water. No entertainment the whole flight, Loud buzzing in galley 60H entire trip.

Pros: The onboard crew was very nice and attentive.

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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
