Pros: I wasn't happy about the boarding part of it. On our tickets we were boarding through gat 18B and was changed to gate three but there was a serious communication breakdown so much that we had to rush to gate 3 the last minute thing after we looked or made enquiries for ourselves

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: The Boeing 787 is a nice plane but too bad that Jet Star is such a poorly run airline.

Cons: My flight was cancelled with hardly any notice and I couldn't fly out for two more days. I missed planned connections with friends in Auckland. It took hours to get checked in and my checked bag deposited on the belt ("technical problems" they said.) Also, it cost me $160.00 to check one bag! THAT'S OUTRAGEOUS! Their bag weight limits are not realistic and not consistent with other airlines. I don't mind paying for a meal on board, but light drinks such as coffee, tea, juice and soda should be free. The crew on board was polite, but division of labor among service agents in the terminal is not fair-some working hard and stressed and some not doing much.

MEL
AKL
Okay 5.3

Cons: at check in we were told that there is normally a charge per kilo for all checked in baggage but that it would be waved. that was not stated at the time I bought the tickets online, otherwise I may have opted to use another airline. Using Jetstar was supposed to be an economical choice but given the baggage fees it ups the total and takes them out of consideration for me. I will not use them in the future, you inform people in advance, not hide fees until check in. I don't trust them now.

Good 7.3

Cons: The attitude of the crew towards passengers with children. They made us wake up our sleeping child because she was on a blow up cushion that obstructed her leg space. Even though we explained it could be deflated in a single second and was not causing harm to anyone else they still made us move it. Also, they gave us a guilt trip for changing a peepee diaper in our seat (careful not to touch any seats) and wouldn't take the trash. As any parents knows, changing a diaper in an airline bathroom is one of the most unsanitary and awful things you can do with your young child due to the extreme lack of space. Airlines in general should make a "family bathroom" with more space for parents to change their kids.

Pros: 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!

LAX
Okay 5.3

Pros: The crew for Qantas is normally pretty damn good. This trip was no exception.

Cons: The plane had a mechanical issue. The plane had sat on the ground for over 12 hours according to flightaware. They didn’t try to work on the mechanics issue till about an hour or two before boarding. This delay caused a lot of issues for so many passengers trying to make connecting flights.

Cons: Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight

LAX
Good 7.6

Pros: Crew and plane were fine. Nothing super special. Definitely less desirable a flight than European.

Cons: The international flights Quantas runs are fine. Beware of JETSTAR this airline is somehow even worse than value airlines in the United States. They weigh bags at check in, harass customers, the worst experience I have ever had in the air. Fly anyone else. JETSTAR IS BEYOND TERRIBLE.

LAX
Okay 5.3

Cons: Our original flight was cancelled and we were not notified by justfly. Just fly also accepted the flights on our behalf so it mean we couldn't chose the new flights

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: The fact that we arrived at our destination.

Cons: Flight was delayed by 1hour, then by another 20 min, then we sat and waited without any information as to what was going on for another 40 min before we finally boarded. Not good enough Jetstar!

Excellent 8.0

Pros: The flight was on time. There was much more leg room than TigerAir.

Cons: After flying TigertAir, Jetstar was much easier with baggage options. There was still uncertainty about the carry-on weight. I ended up purchasing too much additional baggage weight.

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: They ran out of sandwiches after only servicing 1/4 of the plane, and they are the only substantial pieces of food to buy for dinner! I was starving.

Pros: Boarding and disembarking were very smooth, and our bags were ready for collection very quickly.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks

Cons: Nothing

Good 6.0

Pros: The crew was wonderful, very hospitable and friendly.

Cons: The seating in economy class is abysmal. The seats are extremely small and the rows are to close together. There is no leg room. The seat cushioning is almost nonexistent. It's like sitting and leaning back on a board. On this last trip I had a window seat. I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: I cannot say enough good things especially about the Air New Zealand staff on this flight, they were truly amazing, went above and beyond to help me and others. They were personable & caring! The seat was comfortable and the dinner was the best tasting airline food I have eaten in years. Happy!

Cons: I’m really not sure.

Excellent 9.6

Pros: Food was delicious. They served dinner and breakfast. The flight was not crowded. I was able to sleep by stretching across 3 economy seats in my row.

Cons: It would be better if the armrests went up.

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.
