Cons: We were shocked to be charged $275 for two checked bags. At the point that you are checking in you are trapped and don't have a choice but to pay it. We were told that if we had paid in advance it would be cheaper, but we didn't know what the weight of our bags would be so I just figured I'd pay at the airport. They didn't say that they charge so much more at the airport - which is a total rip off. We were also harassed by not having the email that showed we purchased an Australian Visa which is digitally tied to our passport. If they need to verify our Visa, then they should have the electronic means to verify it. Also, we were traveling from Sydney to Auckland so since we were leaving the country I'm not sure why they had to see our Australian Visa in the first place. We were already in the country!

Cons: I booked an international flight between Syndey, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand on Jetstar. About a two weeks prior to our trip I received an email that, among other things, asked if I needed to Pay for "extra baggage". Naive me! I assumed that on an international flight that one bag was at no charge. But NO! When I got to the counter to check in for the flight I was told that since I hadn't paid for our one bag per person prior to now, that they would be charging us $100 US per bag. If we had purchased it prior to checking in the cost would have been $20 per bag. After paying $200 for our two bags I felt totally taken advantage of. Beware. "Extra Baggage" means ANY baggage!

Cons: RIDICULOUS baggage fees. Because I booked through Kayak I never received a confirmation from the airline.

The agent informed me that I needed to pay baggage fees based on weight at the time I booked. How in the hell am I supposed to know 2 months in advance how much my luggage weighs? The baggage fees were 4 times the price of the ticket! And then they weigh your carry on to try to collect even more fees if the total weight of your carry on exceeds 7kg. No food or water on board and VERY rude head flight attendant. NEVER AGAIN and I will think twice about booking through Kayak given I was never informed of these fees in advance.

They finally announced the flight would be delayed until 1330 then we saw the plane with fire engines on the ground. They then said flight delayed until 1500. The problem was there was no communication from them and lots of people in line to talk with them. Infact communication was seriously lacking and needs a lot of improvement. They finally announced that the flight was delayed until 2200. I finally stood in line to confirm that they had made other flight arrangements for us to get to SF, again they didn't communicate. We couldn't get another flight until 6/11/16 @ 1845 but they did provide lodging and 3 meals. We didn't mind the delay but they need serious on improving their communication with their passengers

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing. They would not let me on the flight although I was at the gate an hour in advance with no checked luggage

Cons: I had called previously to verify that Qantas and Lan were partners and although I had purchased separate tickets (Qantas from LAX to SYD and LAN from SYD to CHC), that i would have no checked luggage and the informed to go straight to the gate. When I arrived in SYD i did and was there well in advance. They wouldn't let me on the flight and I have no idea why.

Pros: Was cold so requested a blanket, was told we will see ..Blankets were given to passengers in the front seat but I was ignored. I usually carry a warm scarf so do not need airline blankets.

Cons: No issues will travel on this airline again.

Cons: I booked an international flight between Syndey, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand on Jetstar. About a two weeks prior to our trip I received an email that, among other things, asked if I needed to Pay for "extra baggage". Naive me! I assumed that on an international flight that one bag was at no charge. But NO! When I got to the counter to check in for the flight I was told that since I hadn't paid for our one bag per person prior to now, that they would be charging us $100 US per bag. If we had purchased it prior to checking in the cost would have been $20 per bag. After paying $200 for our two bags I felt totally taken advantage of. Beware. "Extra Baggage" means ANY baggage!

Good 6.0

Pros: check in was smooth and effortless, did the online checkin and luggage drop off at the counter

Cons: service was hit and miss, one fa asked us to wait to pick up the finished food while she was not doing anything, while the other fa was very thoughtful and asked us if we would want to have the rubbing collected. a bumpy landing experience, maybe it was controlled by a rookie first officer rather than the captain from the decending part. 2 passengers were ill and required assistance after landing.

Good 7.0

Cons: Flight was almost 2 hours late. Short flight ended up being over 2 hrs as landing conditions were not suitable and plane had to keep hovering around the airport for a long time before it was cleared to land. Crew was very nice. Seats very roomy in economy.

Pros: Air NZwas a good carrier

Cons: Kayak to Virgin Australia to Air NZ - we had a long layover and surprised by 0 bag check in and very expensive charge, When asking for help all told to go to the other : for earlier flight - huge charges - no help : bags - no help and we paid onerous amounts. All bad and with lots of frustration trying to get help.

LAX

Excellent 10.0

Cons: Air New Zealand needs to get onto the TSA Precheck program and the agent at check-in (in the biz line) started scolding me for not meeting the economy baggage allowance (only 1 small 7kg carry on), but everything else was perfect. Best biz class flight I’ve ever had, mostly because of the cabin crew

SYD
AKL
Good 6.6

Cons: I dislike the system where some people are served food and their neighbors are not and no one knows if or why they are being fed or not fed. Apparently, I was in some sort of category where I was fed and my seatmate was not and neither of us knew why. Also, the entertainment being pay-to-play is just stupid.

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,
