Pros: Nothing.

Cons: I was told I couldn't fly with my bag because it was .2 kilos over. I had only one bag and it had my camera and my medication in it. It weighed 7.2 kilos instead of 7. I fly with this bag on Jetstar all the time with this exact same bag and it has never been over before. Not allowing for .2 kilos over is absurd and not acceptable. Furthermore, several people had larger bags that they did not even weigh that were certainly more than mine. Even the security at the airport attempted to talk to them and they still treated me terribly. At one point the manager told me I was "stupid for not just checking the bag online". I had enough at that point and left.

There is also a hidden $50 fee per checked bag with a limit of 15Kg. After that there is a charge for every kilogram over 15. We ended up paying $220 in baggage fees. It would have been cheaper to buy two more seats and buckle our luggage in.

Pros: because I fly a lot in the US, I actually thought there was more space on the planes than we usually have here. I also don't mind not having food for free since we don't usually either. beverages would be nice, but since we were able to bring our own through security in Australia, it didn't bother me. Compared to most airlines in the US, it was great. Much more efficient as well. Even though we had to pay extra for luggage, there was tiered pricing by weight and it was still cheaper than most carriers in the US.

Pros: Qantas provides a nice welcome when your board domestic flights in Australia like the one we took today between Brisbane and Sydney not just on their international flights. They greet you when you board, don't feel like a number like domestic flights in the USA be it American, Delta, United, or one of the others. They provide free premier movie access, serve a nice warm meal and drink, and make you feel welcomed - Keep up the great work Qantas, you could give the USA airlines lessons on how to treat passengers.

Excellent 8.0

Cons: Good seat on Virgin VA1 51H and lucky for me there's no one seated beside me I had two seats all to myself. They run out of chicken and had to settle for vege curry which was ok. Purchased the wifi the entire flight which was awesome.

Cons: It would have been a normal trip but we were delayed about an hour in Cairns because the passenger count didn’t add up to what the computer said. This made it very tight to catch our next flight. Barely had time to use the bathroom.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: This companies business model is high friction. I ended up with two tickets for my daughter on the same flights as one of their affiliates had problems with their website so it told me I wasn’t successful booking when i later found out the message was wrong. In the interim i booked the small flights on Tiger. I called both companies 4 times got the usual Asian call center responses and finally someone had the guts to tell me they would do nothing about it. Just insane and that’s what you will be if you ignore my advice. My daughter ended up with two flights she could never use and they would not do a single thing to help apart from go through their call center script to keep their jobs. You have been warned. Kayak should never refer people to gotogate.com. They offer similar customer service and would also do nothing.

Cons: We did not get on the flight, there was no staff available to check in our bags. Everyone we spoke to was rude and abnoxious at Brisbane airport. The only people were lovely and helpful were the volunteers in the blue shirts who tried to direct us in the right direction. We finally got on a flight and still had to pay for it.

Pros: Comfotable flight, Good landing.

Cons: Though one of the stewardess' was professional she was a little impersonal. That statement is a little harsh as she was very young. I am sure as she gains experience she will become great at what she does. Maybe a big smile would help when she addresses passages.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: because I fly a lot in the US, I actually thought there was more space on the planes than we usually have here. I also don't mind not having food for free since we don't usually either. beverages would be nice, but since we were able to bring our own through security in Australia, it didn't bother me. Compared to most airlines in the US, it was great. Much more efficient as well. Even though we had to pay extra for luggage, there was tiered pricing by weight and it was still cheaper than most carriers in the US.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Inexpensive flight with many departure times

Cons: The flight was just under an hour and a half. It felt like the intercom was running constantly. They were selling raffle tickets for a car, they were selling snacks, they were asking for donations to a charity. The constant intercom communications were very frustrating. There is also a hidden $50 fee per checked bag with a limit of 15Kg. After that there is a charge for every kilogram over 15. We ended up paying $220 in baggage fees. It would have been cheaper to buy two more seats and buckle our luggage in.

Good 7.0

Pros: Overall, the flight from Avalon to Sydney was nice, so no complaints about anything else other than the luggage issue.

Cons: I did not realize my ticket did not include checked luggage, so I was charged to check my bag. I was also charged for "excess" luggage because my bag was over 15kg (because I had been traveling internationally, my bag was 20kg) so in total I had to pay $125 just to check my bag. I would have saved more money booking my flight through a major airline in the first place.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: The advertised price before finding out about the Bundles.

Cons: All the ridiculous add-ones for seat preference, food, entertainment, extra leg room, etc. Very misleading!! Difficulty with online check-in and trying to determine baggage needs before actually getting to the airport and then having to pay a ridiculously higher amount. Would have been better to pay the extra and fly on an airlines that puts customer service first.

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.
