Pros: The actual flight on Virgin Australia was great! The comfort level for economy was especially surprising and very nice.

Cons: The transfer in between flights was very hectic and they couldn't find my ticket on my Delta transfer. This happened because they e-mailed the week before trying to change my itinerary but then clearly didn't let Delta know so there was definitely confusion and I missed my original transfer. That aspect was frustrating, but the flight itself was LOVELY.

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Departure was on time (only fifteen minutes late).

Cons: Check-in was a shambles, long lines for bag-drop, despite having booked several months in advance my partner and I could not sit together, the flight and landing was particularly rough, no crew announcements, and our arrival airport was chaotic with no signs indicating which baggage carousel to use for baggage collection. It took us nearly 3 hours to collect luggage and depart the airport.

Pros: I’ve been on dozens of flights prior to this one, this is the first flight I’ve really enjoyed. The service was so good that I was smiling in my seat thinking how great this is. The food was delicious! And free! And very high quality. Coconut, pistachios, frittata, muesli, omelette. Amazing!

Cons: Best airline ever! Add movies though, everyone loves staring into lit screens while the world passes by them, quite literally in this case.

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