This flight was cancelled due to storms in the Pacific. Fiji Airways put passengers into a hotel and paid for meals.

Fiji Airways had poor communication with us about our onward flights, causing us to wonder what was going on. In the end, we were scheduled through another airline 3 days after our flight was scheduled to leave.

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.

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.

Everything about our flight went very well, and most were better than expected. The crew were very helpful. Our seats had plenty of room in economy. This were done very efficiently and with concern for value.

Our Vegan meals were rather tasteless and uninteresting. The only entertainment was what we brought with us and overhead monitors.

I booked this in October and chose 2 seats with one being an aisle seat. I was moved with my wife to the two middle seats in a row of four, like a second class citizen.

My husband and I are seniors, luckily we exercise daily, because we were told to take the stairs down to the airplane and had to walk to the plane in the rain and then walk up the stairs to the plane. When we boarded we actually should have gone through the plane as our seats were closer to the front. The stewardess should have used common sense and directed everyone through the plane, there was absolutely no reason to send people through the rain.

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,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
