Pros: The full refund.

Cons: Jetstar cancelled my New Years Day flight on the evening of New Years Eve “due to crewing requirements.” It was a blessing-in-disguise because it forced me to fly Virgin for the first time. Not only was my last-minute Virgin ticket cheaper than Jetstar, I didn’t have to pay the ridiculous extra baggage fees Jetstar charges, and a meal with alcohol was included in my flight. Virgin all the way!

Cons: We were delayed for 2 hours and 20 minutes flew into a storm, circulated in circles in the air for 30 mins, landed and had to wait for 3 HOURS inside the play due to lightning. If we left on time this would not have happened. Wort 12 hours of my life ever spent in an airport/plane. WILL NEVER FLY JETSTAR EVER AGAIN!!!

Pros: unexpectedly about an hour into the flight an announcement came over the loudspeaker. It was something like this : Attention Attention please pull on your oxygen mask when it drops and place it firmly over your mouth and breathe calmly. I was shocked and everyone that I could see looked shocked. Then nothing. It was the announcement that you never want to hear when on an aeroplane. About 5-10 minutes later another announcement that it was an error and a wrong button had been pushed. It certainly was the wrong button to push.

Pros: Quick easy painless and on time

LAX
Excellent 8.3

Pros: The actual flight on Virgin Australia was great! The comfort level for economy was especially surprising and very nice.

Cons: The transfer in between flights was very hectic and they couldn't find my ticket on my Delta transfer. This happened because they e-mailed the week before trying to change my itinerary but then clearly didn't let Delta know so there was definitely confusion and I missed my original transfer. That aspect was frustrating, but the flight itself was LOVELY.

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: Definetely not the class or finess of a virgin flight! Half a cut ham sandwich... and water only due to short flight time. I’ve flown MANY times on the virgin aircraft. Service was much better! Won’t be booking a aliance flight anytime soon

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.
