the crew inside the plane

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

They actually gave us a reason for the delay - plane had not been cleaned the night before.

No further updates when revised departure time had past and we were still waiting in line. Delay avoidable and not acceptable for first flight of the morning

Ended up on a Jetstar flight on a codeshare arrangement with our booked airline Qantas. The journey didn’t start well when our bags would not scan through the self serve checkin as we had not booked direct with Jetstar. We then asked for an aisle seat, but this was refused - the “customer service” assistant advised we should have paid extra to pre-reserve a seat (a no cost option on Qantas). Then when we entered the plane we found that both adjacent aisle seats were in fact vacant. Food was an additional cost item - on an 8 hour flight. Those unlucky enough to ask for a meal late found that there was nothing left for them. Entertainment was also an additional cost item - when paid for the selection was extremely limited, the system slow. The entertainment froze up requiring a reboot. Though not the airline’s fault, the person behind was very fidgety, making it very uncomfortable for anyone sitting in front of him. If the seats were slightly further apart we might not have had that experience either. All in all not the best, given that we had booked with a full price airline and ended up on a budget airline instead.

I missed the connection in Sydney to get to Cairns… So, still waiting to board the last leg of the flight. The airport in Sydney was really busy and it just took a while to go through customs, and baggage claims etc..

One of the crew members, Jodee Gray, assisted me when I was feeling faint (to the point of requiring supplemental oxygen while over the middle of the Pacific). I am a healthcare provider myself and she knew exactly how to handle the situation properly and professionally. I can't say how grateful I am to Ms. Gray. She really does deserve some kind of commendation for her excellence and kindness.

the plane was only half full so we got to take up a whole row for each of my four family members, it was such a treat. we had travelled from bali in the early hours of the morning and spent some time hanging around darwin airport so we were very tired the extra room was very much appreciated. free light meal was also a nice touch and the free entertainment app was a bonus..

nothing.

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 email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
