Pros: I arrived safely.

Cons: Nothing good to report. Uncomfortable seats. Not even water seved on one 3 hr flight. Invisible flight attendants. Disorganized boarding. Idiotic carryon 7 lb weight limit. Soon they’ll be charging by passengers’ body weight. $145 for 2 checked suitcases. No option for free seats. Very long line mandatory to check in. No kiosk to get boarding pass. Pay for entertainment. Had them booked for 3 flights. The worst.

There was no option to buy my baggage limit early so was surprise de and forced to pay a crazy fee! As it was my last legal day to stay in Australia I had no choice...

Cons: My surfboard bag was ripped and all straps were broken and was then patched up with duct tape!!! What the F#€*?!! It looked like it fell off the plane and was run over. Plus my bike box was torn to bits and patched with duct tape and was cut open by someone’s knife, I ended up loosing bike parts because of this. Horrible bag handling by the crew!! This was all noticed when I picked up my bags in Auckland

Pros: Food was good.

Cons: Virgin Australia and Virgin America apparently do not share traveler info with each other. Neither airline could provide a seat assignment until I reached the counter at my departing city. I had to search for my connecting flight check-in desk to receive a boarding pass. This required a 2nd trip through TSA inspection.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: This is my third time flying with Virgin Australia from LAX to Sydney return. I LOVE this airline. The staff at every point are friendly, responsive, professional and helpful. I loved the service on board. Nothing seems to be too difficult (this was refreshing as I have flown on many flights throughout Asia and America where the service ethic was not strong. Experiencing airlines such as Qantas, United, Asiana, China Eastern, British Airways, Southwest Airlines and many more). Food was good. My kids loved the snacks; chips, Weiss mango icecream, apples, Hawaiin chips etc. A big shout out for the friendly airline. Keep up the great service.

Pros: Business class from Bangkok to San Francisco was good overall, especially for $1400 one way. Food was not very good for business class, was more in line with JAL, EVA, Korean or ANA econo class but again, for the price, no complaints. Great friendly service, quick boarding. Priority Pass didn't have a lounge in Manila but thankfully, Philippines Air had their own lounge with great food and drinks for 1st Class and Business class ticket holders. Plane from BKK to Manila was NICE and comfy, all latest technology with beautiful fully adjustable chairs that lay flat. Would fly with them again!

Good 7.0

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.

MNL
YYZ
Good 7.0

Pros: No delays. Reached destination an hour early. Food was very good.

Cons: My main issue is with the payment confusion between vayama and philippine airlines (unknown outstanding balance came out after managing my booking) which caused major hassle because both parties couldn't help me even after several calls/emails. Actually, another vayama-Philippine airlines passenger reached out to me after she experienced the same situation. Baggage allowance very strict. Would prefer more asian entertainment content.

Priority Pass didn't have a lounge in Manila but thankfully, Philippines Air had their own lounge with great food and drinks for 1st Class and Business class ticket holders. Plane from Manila to SFO was older, screen way too far away, not even reachable without getting out of the seat. Business class seats don't quite lay flat but no complaints for the price. Would fly with them again!

Pros: This no-frills airline gets you to and from Australia fairly cheaply, although when you start adding in all the extras, it may not be as cheap as first thought.

Plus, the in-flight service is so minimal; one person in our party tried to get a glass of water, and never received one.

Cons: So I didn’t like how the flight was canceled which caused my wife and I to stay an extra day in Sydney. We missed work and needed to take an extra vacation day. But I’m not really upset about that. What I’m REALLY upset about is that I had to reschedule the connecting flight to PDX which cost an additional $400. Is that reasonable to upset? Jetstar basically just put their hands up and said sorry lol

However, I had to change/cancel my flight because of delayed passport delivery, and this is when everything turned very Ugly! I had to spend an hour over the phone to get connected to an agent with BudgetAir, who disconnected the line within 2 minutes saying: “please hold so I can pull up your information”. This game went on for 6 hours. I tried to connect with the airline directly to make the change, which was not possible since Budgetair had placed a restriction on this ticket. After 6-7 hours, which meant no work for me or lunch because I was sitting behind my desk with a phone on my hand, I got through an agent who was rude and impolite. He took 15 minutes to find flights for the new dates (I did it in 2 minutes on their website), and then told me to pay $315 in extra fess. When I inquired that the prices on your website for the exact same ticket is way cheaper than my original ticket price, he got angry and aggressive. Basically implying that I have no choice to take their offer as is, or let go of my original ticket price of over $2000. Long story short, DO NOT buy from BudgetAir if you like having a peace of mind!

OK 5.6

Pros: The food is better than United, and the flight attendants were nice and professional.

Cons: The seats were so narrow. When a person in front of you pushes back their seat your space gets ridiculously small...same problem with my flight from LAX to Incheon... It looks like that the aircrafts for this 10+ hr flight are older (smaller seat space) than the ones used for a 1-1/2 hr flight between Incheon and Osaka. Also the terminal at LAX is so far away from Tom Bradley main building that we needed to take a bus and had to wait about an hour until we finally got our suitcases.

Pros: The business class seat pods were superb. Food was good and crew was very helpful, especially in Seoul -- they automatically rebooked me on another Asiana flight to Bangkok when I missed my connection, and they loaned me a cell phone to call the people who were going to meet me there.

Cons: The 2 1/2 hour departure delay (due to a mechanical issue) resulted in my missing my connecting flight to Bangkok. Entertainment choices (movie selection) could use improvement.

Pros: The new aircraft A380 was so comfortable.

OK 5.6

Pros: This no-frills airline gets you to and from Australia fairly cheaply, although when you start adding in all the extras, it may not be as cheap as first thought.

Cons: We attempted to add a meal online and were thwarted at every turn. It took a call and talking to a real person to resolve our issue. Plus, the in-flight service is so minimal; one person in our party tried to get a glass of water, and never received one. It seems a little parsimonious to charge for things like coffee and tea, especially on such a long flight between the US and Australia.

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.
