Pros: The crew was SO polite, hospitable, professional the helpful. They were so kind when someone (us!) had a screaming four year old we were trying to calm down. They offered her a hot chocolate.... so kind and helped immensely. We were very impressed and will look to fly internationally with Virgin AU.

Cons: Airline food is always a bit rough. This was definitely on the 'better' side, but we were travelling with three small children, (ages 4, 5, and 7) and they didn't like any of the options. Luckily we had snack food for them to get through the flight.

Okay 5.0

Pros: The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi

Cons: Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member

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.

Okay 5.3

Cons: Flight left late... I missed my Delta connection from LAX to New York. The Delta staff told me that this flight routinely arrives late. Also, my previous flight that I was booked on, VA7, was canceled the day before. It’s been a nightmare

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.
