Australia has restricted the entry of all travelers, with the exception of Australian nationals and permanent residents and their immediate family members, New Zealand nationals residing in Australia, diplomats accredited to Australia and residing in Australia and their immediate family members, and airline crew.
Australia has enacted temporary travel restrictions for flights to Melbourne due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases.
Travelers who are not Australian citizens and returning permanent residents and their immediate family members need to apply for an exemption to enter Australia.
All international travelers are required to quarantine for 14 days at the first point of entry, unless they're granted an exemption upon request. Quarantines take place in state-designated facilities and fees depend on the state, ranging from $2500 for one adult in the Northern Territory to $3000 for one adult in New South Wales. International flights are currently being diverted away from Victoria. Airline crew are subject to self-isolation until their next scheduled flight.
For more information on quarantine rules in the Australian states, check the following websites:
New South Wales, The Northern Territory, Western Australia.
Foreign nationals may transit through Australia if the connecting flight is within 72 hours of the arriving flight. They must either have a transit visa or be nationals of a visa-exempt country.
Transit passengers don’t need to apply for an exemption to travel restrictions if they are booked to depart on a connecting flight from the same airport within 72 hours and they are not going to leave the airport. Travelers who plan to leave the airport before boarding their connecting flight or who will be at the airport for longer than 72 hours need to apply for a travel exemption here and will be subject to quarantine until their departing flight. Travelers from New Zealand and Pacific Islanders may not need a travel exemption. More information on transiting Australia is available here.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. With a flight over three hours I would have thought there would be seatback mini-screens at least with a few movies to choose from. Also there was only one cart serving drinks which took forever because we had a seat towards the back and because it took so long we only had the one drink. It was so full of ice that really there was hardly any fluid and the ice pieces were too large to even chew them up. I felt very dehydrated during the flight. Since we can't bring our own water I feel like more should be provided."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and friendly crew"
Cons: "We had a 45 minute maintenance delay. After, there was a medical emergency (NOT the crew's fault) leading to an additional1.5 hr delay. I didn't appreciate how much the crew shared about the patient's status over the intercoms--felt like a violation. There were also numerous long comms throughout th"
Pros: "Seat c58 was not built to be comfortable!"
Pros: "Great crew! My husband had a cold, so he wore a mask. One flight attendant was so helpful, bringing him hot tea and lots of liquids."
Cons: "I'd love to know how to request a gluten free meal before a flight."
Cons: "Original flight through Houston was delayed and rerouted through SFO. Then the connecting SFO flight was delayed and missed original flight. Spent 24 additional hours at the airport to catch the next available direct flight. Had an aisle seat but then put between two men who took both armrests for 15 hours."
Cons: "My baggage was lost."
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was cool."
Pros: "SFO-SYD was great. My luggage was left behind in SYD when I landed QZN!!! Not amused!"
Cons: "Them losing my luggage!"
Pros: "More space, better flight attendants, 3 free meals and free alcoholic beverages. It’s all good."
Cons: "Nothing, loved it."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and were able to efficiently accommodate me and my kids next to each other on a flight that was completely full... while we were almost late. An amazing experience. Unfortunately stands out of all others with United."
Cons: "The quality of coffee"
Pros: "Pilot interaction."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"
Pros: "Food was not tasty. Some crew members weee to task oriented and it is make them less friendly"
Pros: "I got a whole can of ginger ale"
Cons: "Not much room, seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "Plane wasn't delayed. Left on time."
Cons: "Gate attendants could have been friendlier, nicer. Had to stand in boarding line too long."
Pros: "On a recent trip it was very good to be in the new dreamliner and with staff that were enthusiastic and being able to deliver a good product, food and comfort wise was a big bonus. Thank you"
Cons: "Commuter flight need internet access. Please make it happen."
Pros: "We flew out if Eugene, Or. and we're in Cancun by 2pm. I loved that! We we're seated right behind the bulkhead for first class, so we had plenty of leg room. You can purchase food snacks on this flight and they're ok."
Cons: "The entertainment options are disappointing. The selection of movies, that you pay $5.99 for at your seat, are stale movies."
Pros: "The staff were courteous and helpful"
Cons: "It felt as if the purchase of the tickets was bait and switch. We purchased our tickets through KAYAK and remade to feel as if we were being punished for buying tickets at a savings. It turned out to be no savings at all as they charged us for luggage which is normally carry-on for both of us going and returning This turned out to be a significant financial punishment. For the more it was clear that we had no options into seat selection. It would've been nice to sit next to each other but we were told that our seats would be assigned, take it or leave it. This turned out to be a significant financial punishment. For the more it was clear that we had no options into seat selection. It would've been nice to sit next to each other but we were told that our seats would be assigned, take it or leave it. We fly to Europe frequently but will never under any circumstance flight on United again."
Cons: "Only non nut snacks. Should offer stevia too as a sweetener."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Booked aisle seat. Plane change resulted in seat reassignment to middle seat. Awful. And United declined repeatedly to reassign me without $$$ upgrade. United sucks."
Cons: "3hrs waiting for the plane"
Pros: "Flights were on time and one even landed early."
Pros: "Making the connectoin in SFO worked out because both flights were delayed. Offering bottled water and chips to waiting passengers was a small courtesy that I heard others appreciated."
Cons: "Couldn't understand the PA announcements in Eugene. Audio clarity problem. Flight delayed. It happens. I prefer media content from United accessed through the cabin wi-fi. That option wasn't working on one flight segment. Just an hour flight though. I'm 6'2". Could future planes have a variety of seat sizes? The leg room in economy is actually sufficient for me. It was difficult to find my delayed flights on the departures screen. United employees didn't complain about helping me though."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment."
Cons: "Having to wait 2 hrs for initial flight which made me miss all connecting flights"
Pros: "Great job"
Cons: "I do not like this survey. Where can I answer that I did not experienced the entertainment? I have no idea if it was any good"
Pros: "Unprofessional and completely disorganized the flight was oversold which is not a big deal but the way it was handled was beyond ridiculous. After the plane was boarded at least 4 Crew members boarded the aircraft and started moving people around it was chaos. I'm assuming it was one of the gate agents that insisted a couple of passengers Exit the plane. I've honestly never seen anything like this. At one point I heard a female passengers use profanity when asked by her traveling companion "what is going on? where are u going" the woman replied "I being told I have to get off the plane there are no more F--king seats" My option the crew and or gate agents were irresponsible for boarding passengers that did not have seats! Get it together united!!!"
Cons: "San Francisco always has delays. You pull away fro. The gate & sit on the runway for 25-30 minutes. Frustrating."
Pros: "I thought the whole experience was unorganized. The staff attempted to keep their calm but in the end they sounded just as organized as the flight line. (Referring to the trip as a whole)"
Cons: "I received 10 flight delayed notices on this trip. Five of the flight delayed notices were flight 6047. I missed a whole night in Oregon because of the delays and got in at 2 am into Charleston.. which was not ideal. I will not be recommending United Airlines. Also, for some reason the last flight was the coldest flight I've ever been on? I was tired, cold and miserable by the time I got to Charleston."
Pros: "Horid contract gate agent in Eugene OR. Broke FAA rules. Contacting United for resolution."
Cons: "Rude, unaware of rules, as a 1M flyer one of the ugliest boarding a I've had in ages"
Cons: "I missed my flight because on the printed ticket, the boarding time was the same as the flight time. It read that the flight was on time, so I arrived a few minutes before the boarding time per the ticket and the flight was already leaving. So I had to cancel the flight and they re-booked the flight for the next morning, pretty late morning, which made me miss a scheduled day of work. There was also a child kicking my seat behind me so I had to move my seat in order to avoid any issues."
Pros: "Efficient and professional crew."
Cons: "Almost nonexistent snacks. I know it is a short flight, but a small packet of pretzels is pretty sad. The flight attendants are great, but come on..."
Cons: "The flight had no flight crew, so I had to fly out the following day, missing important client meetings and losing money. I paid extra to fly out on Sunday so I would be able to make my obligations, but didn't arrive until Tuesday night. No refund or voucher was offered, although I asked. It would be nice if they at least paid the difference between the flight I paid for and the cheaper flight I received."
Cons: "Flight supposed to leave 5:30 Am plane at gate since 7pm night before.. First flight of the day But NO crew to fly it until after 6:00 Am we were an hour late leaving. Had a 50 min layover in Denver.. Had to RUN 30 gates. This is purely their scheduling error."
Pros: "Nice assortment of movies"
Cons: "The chairs barely recline and my chair never stayed reclined. Crew was off putting. Not very friendly."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The only flight leaving Eugene that would get me to Dallas in time for an urgent meeting left at 5:25 am. The crew identified something in inspection that gave them a little concern, so they called maintenance to come and check it out to ensure we were safe to fly (which I very much appreciate). The issue I have is that over an hour passed (after the flight was supposed to leave), with them giving periodic updates that they had called maintenance and were waiting for them. Finally I asked the people at the counter, who were visibly embarrassed, where maintenance was coming from (this is an airport - shouldn't they have it onsite), and they conceded that maintenance was at the airport, but they had no idea where they were. This delay resulted in me missing my connection in Denver, which caused me to miss the meeting and the whole reason I was flying back to Dallas a day early for. I essentially paid over $400 for an extra ticket (I had to not use my one on Friday - because it was just cheaper to buy a separate one way ticket). I will never fly United again."
Pros: "seats comfortable n Eugene airport easy to navigate"
Cons: "being unboarded on tarmac with white a distance to cover barely made connection"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and very small"
Pros: "The crew was polite and very professional"
Cons: "The food was disgusting"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crowded. Tight seats and I'm thinp"
Pros: "The hostess was entertaining"
Cons: "The plane was dirty and delayed"
Pros: "My first flight was cancelled and it appeared i wouldn't make it to my destination on the day which I intended. A Delta/united employee at the Eugene Airport (Collette) quickly and kindly moved some things around and got me a flight out only an hour later, upgraded me to comfort select seating, and some how managed to get me to my final destination (2 flights ) only an hour after I originally booked for. She did all this with a smile on her face while a worried guest (me) wasn't sure what he was going to do if it weren't for her impeccable service. Thanks Collete and United!"
Cons: "A few hours before flight time I was informed by email - not text - that "my flight" was canceled, which turned out to mean the flight went but I was bumped. I had to reschedule my entire trip for two days later (a trip to see a hospitalized relative). The affair would have upset me less if Kayak/United had simply informed me that they had overbooked the flight and they did not have room for me."
Pros: "Overall, good. The champagne pre-take off was probably the worst I've ever tried. Service was variable. The seat and in flight entertainment are good."
Pros: "When finally able to talk to someone in customer service in san Francisco, jonanne joy and new trainee fworked hard to find a flight in the morning to connect to out international flight."
