Mediocre 2.0

Pros: the crew inside the plane

Cons: the supervisor in Darwin... no empathy, assumed I was lying due to the fact that some idiot in the call centre didn't put something in the history, indicated that I must be dumb since I should know better (BTW I am quoting verbatim) .. WOULD NOT GIVE ME A MANAGERS NAME IN ORDER FOR ME TO SPEAK TO THEM

Excellent 10.0

Pros: Leave and Arrived on time

SYD
PER
Good 6.6

Pros: Plane seats are ok - a bit annoying that there is no on board entertainment and you have to use your own phone etc. The butter chicken was edible.

Cons: It'd be better if there were a selection of direct flights to Canberra. It's quicker to fly to Bali! We spent over 8 hours including wait time to travel from Canberra to Perth - via Sydney. No bag drop in Canberra - that was a surprise.

Good 7.2

Pros: Easy check in on line and at baggage check in at Nadi, landing was good, the fact that we made it safely was also good, great crew - I felt sorry for them too!

Cons: Screaming kids, I had one kicking the back of my seat pretty much the whole trip, as well as throwing tantrums (I know this isn't the fault of the airline but the crew could've helped a tad more - can't blame them for not wanting to go near them though I didn't want to be seated in front oft them either!!!) No tv for inflight entertainment, meal very average, they ran out of one of the choices early on (probably the only good choice!), landing was good…very relieved to arrive!

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Absolutely nothing

Cons: Just about everything this poor excuse of an airline needed to be better. Not only did they rob me at the check in desk of $210, there was also an extremely loud alarm coming from the exit door of the plane the crew couldn't fix. I was sitting right next to it for an hour and had to plug my ears to avoid hearing damage. This was the worst flight I've ever been on, and I've flown hundreds of times

Excellent 9.6

Pros: We loved having extra leg room and the bathrooms in the front & back!

Cons: I wished I had a blanket on the flight. But other than that very comfortable

Good 6.0

Pros: Comfotable flight, Good landing.

Cons: Though one of the stewardess' was professional she was a little impersonal. That statement is a little harsh as she was very young. I am sure as she gains experience she will become great at what she does. Maybe a big smile would help when she addresses passages.

Excellent 8.3

Pros: Much better than any airline in the states.

Cons: A few more trash pickups from the crew. I had a few times I was left holding trash.

Cons: Cheaper add booked luggage costs.

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.
