Pros: The crews did their best in a bad situation and were informative and engaging. Tiger also have an easy and economical upgrade to cabin baggage weight limit.

Our return journey was delayed 80mins as the assigned plane had another technical issue and required replacement. On landing deboarding was delayed a further 10mins as the ground crew had brought the wrong set of steps and couldn't find the correct set.

Cons: The seats were not as comfortable as some on your other Qantas airplanes. Maybe we had outdated ones? Either way you're getting better on the design. Keep up the improvements! :)

Mediocre 2.3

Pros: Only one of the staff was friendly.

Cons: Only allowed 7 kilos of baggage, would have been nice to know that, the charge for my 10 kilo bag was $75, same price as my ticket, you find this out at the gate, what a scam. Flight was 1 hour late. Gate check in lady was yelling at customers to take out headphones and listen to her! Will not use them again.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Our Monday evening flight was cancelled (midair so we wasted a night flying halfway there and back). 3 hours waiting to be told the next available flight is Friday evening. Told we would be refunded for accommodation costs up to $120 per night per person. 2 weeks later and yet to see that money. There is no inflight entertainment or food. Hand luggage is weighed at the airport and it is $50 if you are over 7kg

Poor 0.0

Cons: Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening.

Good 7.3

Pros: The crew was great and the seats were comfortable.

Cons: If the seats reclined more, it would have been easier to sleep. The baby behind me would not stop screaming for 7 of the 15 hour flight. The flight was oversold so there was no where I could move. Even ear plugs didn’t help. Everyone was miserable.

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.
