Pros: Entertainment was good quality, and had a good variety of games and movies. The food was also pretty good, and provided pretty good headphones.

Cons: The plane departed 1 hour late, and arrived 1 hour 15 min late, and we barely made our connection on time. The crew gave full cups of drinks to the Chinese passengers, and half full cups to the people of other races. I was sitting in a row of 4 seats, and the person next to me couldn't get anything, so they asked me to get water for them. I asked for water for me, and tried to ask for water for the person next to me, but the crew member just ignored me. I asked her 6 times, and she just wouldn't pay attention to me, so the guy next to me didn't get water.

Pros: Paid for the upgrade comfort seat. Worth it in that I go 260 with broad shoulders. Like the convenient electronic connection and device tray for my Kindle and phone. Nice crew, Good flight.

Cons: Loading and activating the Hawaiian Airlines Entertainment app for in-flight music, movies, TV, etc., is a real problem. Hawaiian really needs to upgrade it. All of us in our row had to work together to figure it out. Then, one has to pay for each non-music selection. '0' stars.

Pros: Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait.

Cons: Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold.

OK 4.6

Pros: Comfortable seat.

OK 4.3

Pros: We liked that we got to watch some entertainment for an economy seat.

Cons: The check in process was a disaster- and none of the crew knew what they were doing. They were very unhelpful and on topof that kayak did not let us know there would be a $160 fee if we did not order a seat with a baggage. It was not clear on the third party site. It was a very costly for us, a couple who is on a budget. i book From kayak all the time, and know exactly when I am booking an economy ticket vs a more upgrade. We had to pay an unexpected $320 on the day of flight. It was ridiculous and while we were boarding the flight attendants held us up again bc we had not paid the fee. But we tried to pay the fee at the front desk the first time and then we paid it at the gate and then boarded last on the plane. It was awful. The staff did not know anything and we were not treated great. Super unprofessional and disappointed at Kayak for not laying out all the costs ahead of me.

Good 6.0

Pros: Economy seats are not comfortable on any airline. I wonder why seats in a car are more comfortable than in an airplane? The staff were very zealous and proficient. They were pleasant and helpful. The food was the best of any airline I have flown. I was very impressed with the biscuits!

Cons: I did not like riding the bus to my airplane on the tarmac.

Cons: It was slightly disorganized, with not a lot of smiles from the crew, but it was fine anyway. I wish food portions were a little larger.

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.
