Cons: For the original flight 704 on 6/10/16 We arrived at the airport at 9:30 am for our 11:50 flight, we were ready for boarding at 11:10 but no boarding. They finally announced the flight would be delayed until 1330 then we saw the plane with fire engines on the ground. They then said flight delayed until 1500. The problem was there was no communication from them and lots of people in line to talk with them. Infact communication was seriously lacking and needs a lot of improvement. They finally announced that the flight was delayed until 2200. I finally stood in line to confirm that they had made other flight arrangements for us to get to SF, again they didn't communicate. We couldn't get another flight until 6/11/16 @ 1845 but they did provide lodging and 3 meals. We didn't mind the delay but they need serious on improving their communication with their passengers

Cons: Hassled at luggage check in. Had to throw out clothes and shoes to meet weight requirements as they charge $25 a kilogram for extra weight which was not disclosed when we received our confirmation. We were the only ones hassled over being a few kilos over each. Many people hand large luggage carry ons which wouldn't even fit in the luggage testers yet no one said anything to them. 90 percent of the people were easily over the 7KG weight allowance for carry on luggage and were not hassled at all. It was pure discrimination and perhaps it was because I was italian or my wife had blond hair. Who knows. I have been on hundreds of flights in my life and have never been so humiliated in my life. The blonde luggage counter and boarding ticket taker, was insulting and even insisted on seeing our australian visitors permit which is not required according to Australian customs once you have paid for it and are registered. She even tried to force my wife to check her bag even though it fit in their luggage sizing testers. Another tall lady with glasses at the luggage check in area, was also very insulting and discriminated against us. Horrible experience. Both of those people would be fired if I was running the airline. Its a service business and while I understand rules, you have to have some discretion and if your going to enforce them, they must apply to all passengers, not just 2 people out of 150!

Cons: The boarding process @ Aukland Airport is a mess. We had to use the machines and some were not working properly and not enough staff to help customers. It was crowded and I had to fight my way to find a machine.

Pros: The crew is amazing. Always friendly, smiling and happy to oblige. Love the New Zealand hospitality. The inflight entertainment has so many programmes to watch, and the list of music options to listen in to is well stocked. Food is excellent. Obviously overate in the 9 1/2 hour flight.

Pros: New Zealand Air staff were friendly, informative and courteous throughout the entire flight! I was floored by their service and by what was offered. They even worked to arrange for people to move around (some were packed 4 to a row, but there was plenty of space throughout the craft).

Pros: Crew was the best ever, and I've been flying on China Air for 40 years.... they must have put in a good program to achieve this better-than-before result.

Cons: Boarding from a shuttle bus gate at midnight is problematic... we had to stand on the bus in the dark, and couldn't figure out when the driver was going to turn or stop or go, so people (including many old people) were tripping over for the duration of the bus ride.

Cons: This was my first time travelling with China airlines and this trip was our honeymoon so we were really excited for this trip but after flying with China Air, I dont think I will fly with them again. Flight attendants were really rude, Food was ok, There’s no selection of drinks

Pros: I loved our crew! Super friendly and willing to assist you in anything that was needed.

Cons: The extra baggage fees, my bad, I thought I had paid for it. Luckily I stored most of it in Sydney, since I was only going to be in Auckland for a day. We left 45 minutes late without explanation...that was lame. I don't think I will fly with them again unless I just bring a backpack.

Pros: check in was smooth and effortless, did the online checkin and luggage drop off at the counter

Cons: service was hit and miss, one fa asked us to wait to pick up the finished food while she was not doing anything, while the other fa was very thoughtful and asked us if we would want to have the rubbing collected. a bumpy landing experience, maybe it was controlled by a rookie first officer rather than the captain from the decending part. 2 passengers were ill and required assistance after landing.

Cons: Check and bag drop. Four people stood at the desks waiting til The exact min two hours before to drop bags. Time came they ignored everyone and they finally started. They were not that kind. They could take some lessons from NZ air.

Excellent 9.6

Pros: The crew was SO polite, hospitable, professional the helpful. They were so kind when someone (us!) had a screaming four year old we were trying to calm down. They offered her a hot chocolate.... so kind and helped immensely. We were very impressed and will look to fly internationally with Virgin AU.

Cons: Airline food is always a bit rough. This was definitely on the 'better' side, but we were travelling with three small children, (ages 4, 5, and 7) and they didn't like any of the options. Luckily we had snack food for them to get through the flight.

LAX
Excellent 9.3

Pros: Loved the amount of leg room and food choices.

Cons: Maybe more offers for drinks throughout the flight. Check in of the bags was automated in some areas but there didn’t appear to be sufficient staff to assist. That and as travellers we tend to move slower that a Virgin worker would so I couldn’t put all my bags on board. More assistance at checkin

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.
