None of this was presented before. I have not traveled to Australia before, so I had no idea this needed to be done. As of now I am still at home trying to find a solution to this requirement.

Pros: flight crew are good, other general categories are average.

Cons: Boarding in both Sydney-Auckland & Auckland-Vancouver are disorganized. No clear indication of when & where to line up. No flight delay message to explain when boarding time was long overdue. In particular, for the Auckland - Vancouver flight, one ground staff was telling economy passengers (in rather rude express) they were in the wrong line except there was never announcement. Overall, disappointed.

Seats are fine and sleeping mattress adds some support on the long flight. There is not enough storage around the seats within reach for anything other than bottled water.

Cons: What is weird at LAX when one connects from the Delta flights to the VA international flight is having to take the bus (that only comes at specific time and was managed in our case by a rather unhappy delta terminal agent) and then wait in a long line to get your boarding pass re-issued by a slow VA agent (not sure why a delta issued boarding pass is not good enough....) If you do not allow a lot of time between flights, you are guaranteed to miss the flight to Australia.

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.
