KAYAK is a travel search engine. That means we look across the web to find the best prices we can find for our users. With over 2 billion flight queries processed yearly, we are able to display a variety of prices and options on flights to Australia.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a flight to Australia is likely to change within 7 days, so travellers know whether to wait or book now.
Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to Australia with an airline and back with another airline.
Sometimes travel dates aren't set in stone. If your preferred travel dates have some wiggle room, flexible dates will show you all the options when flying to Australia up to 3 days before/after your preferred dates. You can then pick the flights that suit you best.
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was courteous"
Cons: "Less people on the plan.e. Too full in time of a Covid Virus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the pilot decided to (after the doors were closed and ready to go) unload and reload cargo and board more people. So based on their decision, we were even further delayed and subsequently missed our connection in sydney. United has offered no compensation either for our change fee in sydney nor for the stress they added to our vacation - on a Christmas flight nonetheless!"
Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."
Pros: "Snacks and movies"
Pros: "Food was excellent, seating was comfortable and entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "Boarding could have been more organized. It seemed to have been a little chaotic."
Cons: "We had a 45 minute maintenance delay. After, there was a medical emergency (NOT the crew's fault) leading to an additional1.5 hr delay. I didn't appreciate how much the crew shared about the patient's status over the intercoms--felt like a violation. There were also numerous long comms throughout th"
Pros: "Always love the Stroopwaffel snacks! Flight attendant was very friendly and worked to help passengers who had short layovers get off the plane first."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very sweet and helpful."
Cons: "Every.single.time I take this flight we sit and wait for upwards of 30 minutes for someone to be available to park/unload the plane. The wait is so consistent it’s ridiculous."
Pros: "Great crew! My husband had a cold, so he wore a mask. One flight attendant was so helpful, bringing him hot tea and lots of liquids."
Cons: "I'd love to know how to request a gluten free meal before a flight."
Cons: "Original flight through Houston was delayed and rerouted through SFO. Then the connecting SFO flight was delayed and missed original flight. Spent 24 additional hours at the airport to catch the next available direct flight. Had an aisle seat but then put between two men who took both armrests for 15 hours."

Pros: "Great crew. Clean cabin. United App easy and free entertainment"

Pros: "priority boarding; timeliness"
Pros: "Pilot interaction."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"
Pros: "On time."

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "On a recent trip it was very good to be in the new dreamliner and with staff that were enthusiastic and being able to deliver a good product, food and comfort wise was a big bonus. Thank you"
Cons: "United has started charging for taking on a regular size carryon which I do not appreciate. Additionally, I cannot check in online, only at the gate. I will look to patronize other carriers."
Cons: "12+ hour flight with no working outlet to charge phone or headphones. When I asked to move to a seat that had a charger, they basically said no - even though there were about 20 open seats in the next "economy class" level. So for 6 hours, after my phone died, I basically stared at the wall and then had no phone to assist with my directions or hotel reservations once we landed. Food was not good. Plane was old, and had a few random screens playing a movie that kept freezing and had to be restarted."
Pros: "It was good , no complaints"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I liked kayak, recommended by a friend and my new booking application. Thank you."

Cons: "That I wasn't going to make my connecting flight because of delays which meant overnight in airport- they wouldn't put me in a hotel!! But I made my connecting flight.... Because it was suuuuuper delayed- no one's fault. So scratch that poor I'll give it 2 stars..."
Cons: "2 1/2 hr delayed departure"
Cons: "I get that it's the weather but this whole experience has been hectic. I have been bounced around 3-4 different flights in the last 12 hours yet have boarded 0 to get to where I am going. Each one canceled then delayed then missed because of the delay and re-routed. It just seems like a free for all."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Bad crew attitude No entertainment Terrible baggage policy Poor snack options Absolutely no leg room Since Continental was taken over by United it's been going downhill but this flight was just awful. After living in the Newark, NJ area for over 20 years and flying with them as long, I'm awfully tired of them. I will consider other airport options for nonstop flights or do layovers bc I can't stand their overpriced seats and poor service."
Pros: "Economy+ seats were very nice. Gates were close."
Cons: "Having content viewable on your app is fine, but finding out last minute that for some reason your device doesn't work with the system is annoying. There didn't seem to be any food or drink service, which was odd."
Pros: "My flight in was smooth, seamless and amazing. The crew was so lovely."
Cons: "My flight out was a shot show that included a four hour delay and frantic running to gate changes. The staff was very unhelpful. The snack was awful."

Cons: "Had to make 6 phone calls with an average hold time of 15 min before I even some to anyone each time I called."

Cons: "It took about 30 minutes to get luggage in Atlanta"
Cons: "Worst ever Can you credit my credit card for a full refund"
Cons: "Left laptop on plane (was rushing to connecting flight because inbound plane was so late), and even though I realized it as soon as I exited the jetway, gate agents refused to let me back on plane or have staff help retrieve the laptop. It was found 4 days later in Albany, where they made me pay the FedEx charge to ship it to me. Still haven't received it 4 days after I paid for overnight shipping - 8 days In total so far with no results."
