If you are leaving the keys for someone to pick it up later, ParkShort parks are good for stays less than 4h. ParkLong and ParkPremium parks are a good choice if you are travelling to Nadi on a short trip, with parking options located not far from the terminal. Budget-friendly AIRPARK parks are good for longer trips, with a complimentary shuttle to the terminal.
It takes about 20min to get to the airport from downtown Brisbane by taxi or car.

Pros: "The first. Captain flew brilliantly or however many there were"
Cons: "During the international flight a lot was not healthy. The crew were disinterested in the work in economy class with the exception of a very helpful young man. The announcements couldn't be understood, the speakers crackled so much and the stewardesses spoke in very heavy accents. There was still debris from the previous flight in the seat holders. The entry into the plane smelt unfresh . The TV. Programming was limited and often did not work. Overall it was a flight that lacked international standards. The final flight to cape Town was excellent. I was going to write you a letter. We are capable of much higher standards and I felt ashamed. The international flight to Perth was better but the flight back from Perth was not good. Every flight should be welcoming and helpful. The attitude and involvement of flight crew makes or breaks the journey even if the craft is old and not perfect With regards eva young and trusting that this review canbe of help."

Cons: "Food - meusli bar again!"

Pros: "Tried to make up for lunch with getting first choice for breakfast."
Cons: "I was in the last row of the plane and found myself treated like essentially second class citizens due to being in the back, as we did not get any selection for the first meal service, and there werent enough hot snacks ready when they got to us so they had to make new ones which took an extra ten minutes. (By the time the snack was served it was long after meal service too, so we were already quite hungry). It just made for an annoying experience feeling like because we were at the back, we had to just take what we were given. They could make more of an effort to make sure ALL passengers are treated well."

Pros: "Comfortable short flight"
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay and was told they had to wait for the paint to dry????"
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.

Airline staff was great. Customer service is obviously important to them."

Cons: "They were a minimum 45 minutes late (one 2 hour, 2 one hour) for every flight. Their running late caused us to miss our connection to Brisbane, so they sent us to Sydney. The ,late flight into Sydney cause us to miss our flight into Brisbane (our ticketed destination city). As we de-planed on the Jetway was a woman holding a sign with 12 - 114 names on it, we were one. She told us to go the the transfer desk and they would help us. We had never been in Sydney, could not find a transfer desk (there was none) found the ticketing counter - nobody there, found the airline office - nobody there, went back to the ticket counter nobody still there, asked a competing airline, they directed us to an air travel management office, where we found Fiji Air personnel. They were surprised we were not told where to go. they tracked down the office manager. We finally met with him at 1:40 PM, he told us our flight was in the domestic terminal and scheduled to leave at 2:00 PM. There was no way we could make it to the plane on time. He was rather rude to us and asked us how we thought we were getting to Brisbane, We responded with "I don't know as we've never been here before". Having never been there. we did not know there was an international and a domestic terminal at the Sydney airport. He told us who we were to fly out on and he was going to call over to the other airline and straighten it out. We went to the domestic terminal tried to check in for our flight, but we could not. That airline called Fiji Air to find out why, after half an hour they were told Fiji Air would not honor our flight as we were noted as "no Shows"/. We had to book another flight to Brisbane. The flights were great, we have had VERY BAD EXPERIENCES with the ground personnel,"

Pros: "Getting seats as a stand by passenger."
Cons: "Connecting in LAX with waiting 20 minutes at the remote gate for the bus, the bus ride and waiting for luggage to clear customs is virtually impossible to go though and make the connection.

American points to a Fiji airlines, Fiji airlines at American as the carrier."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Pros: "Except entertainment and comfort i did not like any thing else."
