Excellent 8.0

Pros: We sat on the plane for 2.5 hours before take off but it was not the fault of the airline. Extending a long flight is unpleasant. No additional water bottles available on the flight so you have to refill what're you have. Very little seating at the boarding gate so we stood in line for over an hour. The return flight was fine. Airline staff was great. Customer service is obviously important to them.

Cons: I would have liked some sort of notification that we had to retain our water bottles if we wanted any water on the flight. Refills only. I'm inexperienced with international flight so it was new to me.

The email your partner company sent me was strongly adamant that I needed a visa before being allowed to travel! I knew better that this was a scare tactic to make money! But many people probably wouldn’t know. I’m surprised that Kayak would be apart of something like this! Hmmm!

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,
