This flight was on the 777-300 plane leased from EVA. Boarding proved to be a bit of a slow grind due to the inordinate number of families with children on this particular flight. Our fault for not realising this at time of booking. Flight itself went very smoothly. Seats were fine. Not a huge selection of movies to choose from.

Flight took off a half hour late and this 4 plus hour international flight from Australia to New Zealand had NOTHING TO EAT. This flight didn't offer a muffin or power bar only beverages. I have never been on a 4 hour flight where the passengers were not given some small complimentary snack. Shame on Virgin Australia.

Check in was fast and easy Baggage claim was no wait

An hour+ delay due to a baggage discrepancy. But they were very apologetic and I'm glad they got it sorted before we left, understanding it was a security issue. But my seat was pretty horrible. The last seat at the back across from the toilet in the aisle - and there was no window in that row. Little kids running around (but luckily I like kids so I didn't mind).

The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage.

Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate.

Jet star counter at Melbourne has the WORST customer service I've ever encountered. Literally 3 employees standing around chatting while I'm trying to find someone to help with my passport not reading. Then standing at another counter waiting to be helped while being completely ignored. I understand when you're busy (even though he didn't seem busy) but at least acknowledging my presence would've been lovely. Also- baggage fees for this airline should be criminal.

The crew do their best with the terrible hand they are dealt. In short, I would say the airline works really hard at making the travel experience with them one you never want to experience again. Quite fitting to hear the sound of sheep bleating when you deplane in Christchurch. That's how Jetstar treats its customers. Tiniest space you can imagine, worst online experience and not even a drop of water en route, other than purchase.

My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!

Breakfast portions were too small, and choices were not great. Boarding procedures were a little chaotic due to small space, and ground staff was not very polite when ordering passengers to board.

We made it to Christchurch safely and on time.

We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly.

Excellent comfort in row 2 (extra leg room). Crew were very helpful.

The plane was parked across runway and we had to get there by bus. (Terrible fumes) and then waited for more than an hour in board until we could get access to runway to take off. We did still arrive only 10 minutes late.

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.
