Pros: I’m a vegetarian, they made it easy with the online ticket note. I appreciated the thoughtfulness.

Cons: Small leg room but plenty of overhead space for luggage. Don’t forget you can only have 5kg of personal item and 10kg of carry on luggage. Not many people follow the rule but they will make you pay. I paid for heavy checked bag and still had to take items out... not sure if that’s just me!

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,
