Pros: Head rests on bigger flight Nice flight attendants

Cons: Having to pay 100 dollars to pay for baggage I didn't even know I had to pre buy. Just ridiculous! This is not common and should be able to be purchased when you check in like everywhere else.

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: The Boeing 787 is a nice plane but too bad that Jet Star is such a poorly run airline.

Cons: My flight was cancelled with hardly any notice and I couldn't fly out for two more days. I missed planned connections with friends in Auckland. It took hours to get checked in and my checked bag deposited on the belt ("technical problems" they said.) Also, it cost me $160.00 to check one bag! THAT'S OUTRAGEOUS! Their bag weight limits are not realistic and not consistent with other airlines. I don't mind paying for a meal on board, but light drinks such as coffee, tea, juice and soda should be free. The crew on board was polite, but division of labor among service agents in the terminal is not fair-some working hard and stressed and some not doing much.

Pros: Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-

Cons: thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded.

Good 6.8

Pros: After our long and horrendous delay of the flight from Honolulu to Melbourne, we were relieved that this flight back was on time. The plane was comfortable.

Cons: At least the offer of a free drink and snack on the 10.5 hour flight.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Head rests on bigger flight Nice flight attendants

Cons: Having to pay 100 dollars to pay for baggage I didn't even know I had to pre buy. Just ridiculous! This is not common and should be able to be purchased when you check in like everywhere else. "Read the fine print" is not a right cause to screw people over. Having to pay to watch movies. Free section a complete joke!

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Initially I liked the price and time of the flight, but the amount you have to pay for luggage negated the first thing, so all I was left with was convenient timing. The plane crew was nice, though as there was no beverage or food service unless you paid for it (they will give you tap water for free), there wasn't much for them to do.

Cons: They weigh your carry-on bag and have a ridiculous 7kg (combined personal and carry-on) limit. Then they blast you with a $25 per kg overage, so if you have the misfortune of being 5kg over (as I was) you get the pleasure of a $125 fee (which I just saw my card was charged $250 - I need to contest that). The seats are so thin you feel the tray of the seat behind you pressing into your back the whole flight, and they recline maybe a whole 2 inches. There is no entertainment, no beverage or snack service and the plane sounds and feels like a cheap car with terribly loud noise and no shocks. As I said in the title, I'd recommend quantas or new Zealand air and spend slightly more (or maybe less after the baggage overage fees) for a better all around experience.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Great and attentive crew. Solid in-flight entertainment. Pilots got us to destination 20 mins early!

Cons: 1) It's pretty standard to offer a small toiletries pack (eg. Eyecover, toothbrush/paste, etc) on long-haul flights for other airlines. 2) Felt ripped off paying $50 for "preferred economy" seats that looked/felt identical to standard economy seats. Should be marketed as just priority boarding.

Pros: The crew is amazing. Always friendly, smiling and happy to oblige. Love the New Zealand hospitality. The inflight entertainment has so many programmes to watch, and the list of music options to listen in to is well stocked. Food is excellent. Obviously overate in the 9 1/2 hour flight.

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,
