Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Be careful with this airline if you have connections with them. If you’re delayed and miss your connection, they will not help get you onto another flight. You’ll be stranded. Because of this, I had to spend about $1000 to rebook things when my itinerary fell apart because of this one miss.

Good 6.3

Pros: Friendly Professionalism Promptness

Cons: FA’s distributed food but never came back. Also didn’t collect used containers until flight was in decent stage. They were generally unavailable unless you rang the FA button(which I never do)

Mediocre 2.6

Cons: The crew’s English was awful; this making this Cartier a bad choice for non-Mandarin speaking travelers. The power port is throttled at 20W, make my sleep therapy machine inoperablere so I got no sleep on a 12 hour flight. Food was mediocre at best. Never flying China Eastern again.

Okay 4.4

Cons: Flight was delayed for 2 hours without advance notice. For a 4:30 am flight. Passengers were already at the airport around 2am. Only to depart at 6am. No sleep. No food and very uncomfortable. Would be better to give heads up ahead of time

Okay 5.3

Cons: The food is horrible. Bring your own sandwiches. The flight attendants are very nice, but inexperienced. Our flight had to wait for the fate to clear and passengers got up and started taking their bags down while on an active taxi way. They were walking around while the plane was moving.

Okay 5.6

Pros: The price was nice.

Cons: The seating was uncomfortable. The flight crew was was rude and were constantly rushing everything. I saw them yank the headphones out of a sleeping mans ears as we prepared for landing 45 minutes early. They didn’t even attempt to wake him.

JFK
Mediocre 3.6

Pros: The entertainment system was good.

Cons: We have a 4 month old and we were the first ones to check in but all bassinet seats were booked. No one was even using them for bassinets. Not sure if they paid extra for those seats to have leg room but we had to hold the baby for 15 hours. They couldn’t do anything for us.

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.
