Pros: quick flight
Cons: At the airport I had the very bad surprise to learn that we were only allowed one carry-on luggage. Traveling in Australia from the US, we of course each had a suitcase to check-in in addition to our carry-on. I asked for an arrangement at the airport, but they could not provide any help like booking luggage on-line for a cheaper price and moving us to a different flight. In addition, customer service was very disorganized and inefficient at the airport. We received conflicting instructions from many different people, they did not want to help us. Fortunately, someone finally decided to get it done and helped us buy the luggage tickets. We paid $533 in luggage for two people for an hour flight!!
Pros: Easy check in, helpful staff at the check in / bag drop.
Cons: A number of flights were delayed and cancelled, at the gate (16) it was difficult to work out which flight was boarding and which wasn't. The line to board the plane was unclear, a number of people skipped the line and joined Jump the Queue boarding and shouldn't have. I'd recommend staff at the gate walk up and down the line to advise people. I had to go ask what line was which.
Pros: because I fly a lot in the US, I actually thought there was more space on the planes than we usually have here. I also don't mind not having food for free since we don't usually either. beverages would be nice, but since we were able to bring our own through security in Australia, it didn't bother me. Compared to most airlines in the US, it was great. Much more efficient as well. Even though we had to pay extra for luggage, there was tiered pricing by weight and it was still cheaper than most carriers in the US.
We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.
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.
