Pros: Security was super fast. Boarding was straight forward.

Cons: Jetstar baggage policy is, as most know, annoying. 7 kg limit on carry on bags or else you have to pay for extra “weight allowance.” Quite annoying since I can’t very well weigh my bag at home and it really changes nothing. You still bring the bag on the pla e. You just have to pay extra

Pros: Very friendly ticket counter staff and flight crew.

Cons: Booked flight through Kayak on Virgin Australia, but found out it was a codeshare on Air New Zealand. No where during booking did it show we would be charged for 1 checked bag a piece. Got to the airport and Air New Zealand was going to charge 134 AUD for each checked bag. Fortunately, they recommended going to the Virgin Australia counter to see if they could add a checked bag to our ticket. The nice people at Virgin used an online code to give us a discount so we only paid 25 AUD a bag. Thanks a lot for the heads up Kayak. We will book direct next time to avoid surprises. Also, almost all movies on Air New Zealand were an extra charge, and the only drinks offered for free on a 3 hour flight were coffee, tea, and water - no soft drinks.

Moreover, we were charged $25/kg, and later checked the website which says it should be $15/kg. In sum, we wound up paying over $600 in bag fees for two bags that weighed around 40 lbs. Extortion.

Cons: Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Horrific! My sister, mother and I paid 1000 Australian dollars for baggage. An outrageous amount because I apparently didn't specify that we would be checking our 3.bags. The crew was very nice but the plane was dirty and they gave you absolutely nothing. Awful.

Mediocre 2.3

Pros: Nothing

Cons: This is a budget Airlines. I had to call to assign seat and pay for seat. The phone representative was horrible. Also, at the airport they told us to check in baby stroller which we did and they gave us a tag for stroller. The stroller never arrived in Auckland. We had to buy a new stroller. The food we paid for in advance was not cheap at all but they gave us egg sandwich.

Good 7.0

Cons: Flight was almost 2 hours late. Short flight ended up being over 2 hrs as landing conditions were not suitable and plane had to keep hovering around the airport for a long time before it was cleared to land. Crew was very nice. Seats very roomy in economy.

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,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
