I didn't eat dinner as I was too tired, but the breakfast was good and dinner looked pretty good. For airline food, that is. The staff were very polite and friendly.

I previously flew Tokyo to Sydney premium economy on Japan Air and that created expectations. This was significantly worse. The seats were not as comfortable or as spacious. On JL, you have a bit of a barrier between you and the person in the next seat. On Qantas, you very much do not. While this is probably more just bad luck than anything else, the boarding experience was nightmarish with swarms of people blocking every passage.

Flight took off a half hour late and this 4 plus hour international flight from Australia to New Zealand had NOTHING TO EAT. This flight didn't offer a muffin or power bar only beverages. I have never been on a 4 hour flight where the passengers were not given some small complimentary snack. Shame on Virgin Australia.

I know this isn’t Kayak’s issue but American Airlines literally forgot to put fuel into the plane. We were delayed for over an hour and luckily I made my connection in Charlotte but only because they held the flight and it was not full. Had it been full I would have lost my seat.

Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened.

We flew Air Canada’s Economy Plus from Vancouver to Sydney and Air New Zealand’s Economy Plus from Auckland back to Vancouver. NZ’s Economy Plus product is far and above AC’s. Everything from the welcome, to the meal, to the level of service is great. I really felt that NZ treated the Econ Plus cabin as distinct from Economy (including having 2 dedicated washrooms), whereas on AC it felt like we were merely Economy with better seats. I compare NZ and AC because we were so genuinely impressed with what we purchased. We would definitely book NZ Econ Plus again, and the January seat sale is a great time to do so!

I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. NZ gets this product right.

We have our seats by the window on our flight from Sydney to Nadi, we're so happy for that.

We have our seats in the middle of the four (4) seats in the isle of the plane, it's so hard to go to the bathroom, which I do need to go often. We really were not happy and suffering during the flight from Nadi to Los Angeles.

I got to Sydney from LA at 10am on a Thursday after my flight was delayed by over an hour because of catering issues. I brought a carryon luggage with me but was forced to check it because it was overweight. That's totally fine. When I went to baggage claim after the flight, my luggage was no where to be found. I went to the help desk and was told they have no idea where my bag was. They asked for my contact info and was told to wait for a call. I continuously called to check the status and it was still not located. Finally I heard from them Saturday morning and I got my bag delivered on Saturday at 8pm. I had to leave for my flight at 6am Sunday. I had no clothes and wasted so much time and money shopping for necessities. Very unhappy about.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

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 rentals 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,
