Pros: One of the smoothest landings I’ve ever extin my life! The food was excellent- all our children ate from 17 down to 2. We were provided blankets and pillows (which you sometimes can’t get on other airlines). Would fly with them again for sure - great budget airline

Cons: We had about a 35 minute wait once on the plane before we could take off. Not sure why it took so long (other than they said we were number 7 for takeoff). Also once we went through airport security and sat around we had to go through security again before getting to our waiting area (or hold area) but we had to throw out our water. Not sure why seeing as we purchased the water in the airport.

Pros: Everything was smooth - no issues or delays. Food was great Would fly with them again for short distances.

Cons: Apparently if you book with a third party booking Philippine Airlines does not provide you with meal or hotel voucher in Manila for long layover (22 hours). Had I booked directly through them they would have provided meals/hotel for the night. Instead we had to get two rooms for our family of 6. For this, I wouldn’t recommend them (if using third party booking).

OK 4.0

Pros: I love flying Delta and my flight to Australia was incredible. I like the fact that I can check two bags free and the free inflight messaging and entertainment. Some of the staff were very polite and friendly.

Cons: The seat I was in was broken. It moved and I was stuck sitting on metal. There was no leg room. The plane used going to Australia was a lot roomier this plane was old. Some of the flight attendants were very unfriendly and seemed to be bothered by the fact they had to do their job. The entertainment system had to be rebooted multiple times and the usb on the seats didn’t work. They ran out of food during lunch.

LAX
Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: - Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service.

Pros: Qantas is a quality airline and provided us with better service than most USA airlines that we typically fly for about the same pricepoint. We were very impressed by the quality of service, the meal and entertainment offerings- it was a nice memory of how flying with USA airlines used to be in the good ol days. We flew economy so nothing special was added to our basic service.

Cons: All was good, would fly them again should we need to travel their routes again. We flew 2 international flights and 4 domestic (within Australia) flights during our stay in Australia and had great experiences on all the flights.

Pros: The business class cabin is one of the best in the business with a great seat and onboard product. The food was good and the snack bar is great for when you need something mid-flight. American has one of the best selections of inflight entertainment with tons of movies and TV shows available for their long-haul flights.

Cons: Boarding at Sydney International Airport was a bit of a chore. There is a pre-screening area where they check passports and boarding passes prior to reaching the gate. People are randomly selected for secondary screening. Give yourself extra time to board.

Cons: My husband and I sat in row 30 (center & aisle). I sat in the center. As soon as the plane took off, we all heard a dog bark nonstop. The lady directly in front of me had brought a dog!! We felt terrible for the person to the lady's left and right. And then in the middle of the flight her dog pooped all over the floor! And the poor Stewardess' (they were SO wonderful) had to clean up the mess. Then the lady had to clean up more pee and poop and left all that mess right in front of my feet and handbag (which I put under the seat)! I had to hold onto my handbag and shoes the entire trip bc it was touching the pile of dirty paper towels! I couldn't eat the meal due to the gross situation, and I was very upset about this situation all bc of this one lady who had no regard for the ppl around her and behind her! I don't know what your policies are concerning bringing a dog on a plane, but it ruined my flight. I love Korean Air, and love the service and the stewardess' professionalism and attentiveness, but this has made me think twice about flying anywhere on Korean Air!

Never say please. When I got to LAX, I needed to wait for the very last luggage for me to find out that my luggage was left in Guangzhou. No apologies whatsoever and was given a direction to file a report. Very sad experience.

Pros: The Chinese people were wonderful! But I was required to pass thru security checks 3 times arriving. 3 times transiting and 3 times leaving. At customs, transit and departure. No common sense to their process only"letter of the law". For example I was taking beef jerky to my friends in Thailand but the Chinese security has a meat sniffing dog and they confiscated it as well as the girl in front of me More than $100 worth of jerky. They should have given it back at departure gate. I had to buy more in their duty free shop. Also they cancelled my flight without advising me but did get me on Thai airways later that day. Too much hassle to Transit China

Good 7.3

Pros: The crew were very friendly and professional. Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good.

Cons: Boarding was hectic and unorganized, but functional. Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best.

Good 7.6

Pros: Coach seats are pretty comfortable. Crew announces for people to put their seats up when meals are served. Entertainment chicles were solid.

Cons: Some crew members were aloof. Service was ok and very dependent on which crew member it was

Good 6.0

Pros: Seats reclined comfortably but were definitely cramped & crew was pleasant. I got my first choice on meals in both economy x while sitting in the front while headed to Oz and regular economy when sitting in the back on the way home.

Cons: Only one drink service included, which came with the first meal. The rest of the options were water throughout the flight until breakfast when juice or coffees and teas were offered. Entertainment was a little dated, including HBO series from the early 2000’s rather than newer shows. Flight was an hour late without explanation & there wasn’t the starry night sky that I heard so much about. Overall I’d fly again if it was a good flight deal but I wouldn’t specifically seek the airline out when planning another trip.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: You can eat a dick regarding your flight from Syd to NYC. Delta is bullshit and so is your service. The end

OK 5.6

Pros: Entertainment.

Cons: I had three flights with Virgin Australia, all to get to and from Sydney and to and from the US. ALL THREE FLIGHTS WERE DELAYED, one even being a 2-3hr delay, and compensation was only $8 AUD voucher at the airport - just enough to get coffee! Excuses were made due to weather, some say it was due to staff. Never will I fly with them. Disorganized and never on time.

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.
