The ambient lighting used throughout the cabin was too bright and stimulating to let me fall asleep in an overnight flight, should have been dimmed more or turned off. The seats did not help the comfort levels either, should have been able to recline a tad bid more. The carry-on-bag situation is getting out of control, you should crack down on people who bring too many bags or oversized bags that should be checked in instead.

The crew kept us well informed and were extremely calm.

We were stuck on the plane for 9 1/2 hours for a 5 hour flight. We weren't allowed to land at JFK, so we got diverted to Richmond, VA to refuel. Miserable experience.

OK 4.0

Boarding was quick and efficient.

The seats in my row were filthy. Not only was there food on the seats but there was crusted food on the pull down tray. When this was brought to Peter's (the steward's) attention he handed me a napkin and water to clean it myself. Absolutely unacceptable. I don't think I'll be flying JetBlue again.

Nothing it was a horrible experience, Sun Country would not take any of the passengers calls and we were not told why the flight was our five hours late. The flight crew at JFK was pleasant but they seem to be very nervous and withholding information about why the flight was late and they never actually explained to the passengers why the flight was late.

They did not offer us any explanation nor did they give us any credits there was a very minor apology from the pilot somewhat blaming the crew at JFK which is not fair. I've never experienced service like this from Suncountry airline before and I will definitely think twice before booking a flight with them again .

What's the deal with no seat assignments? Why did some people have them and some didn't? They were holding window seats for certain people but no one told us why. There were a lot of angry people waiting to find out where they were seated. If you have some policy about it, tell us. Otherwise it feels like you're doling out the best seats to certain people for random reasons.

Every seat had an outlet and working tv. We arrived safely. Boarding process was efficient. Baggage claim was efficient.

Check-in at JFK was completely absent until boarding with no updates on flight delay or anyone there to answer questions. The beverage service did not begin until two hours into the flight despite the fact that my child ordered a drink or his motion sickness and we asked about it. There were few entertainment options and the same options on the way home a week later. Not enough for 12 hours of flight time. There was no gate for our arrival and we sat on the runway for almost an hour before the ground crew brought us a stairwell and bus to take us to the terminal. Overall, not what we have come to expect from beginning to end.

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.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
