ALL THREE FLIGHTS WERE DELAYED, one even being a 2-3hr delay, and compensation was only $8 AUD voucher at the airport - just enough to get coffee! Excuses were made due to weather, some say it was due to staff. Never will I fly with them. Disorganized and never on time.

Food was very good, nice touch with comp wine. Entertainment options were many and good variety. Hope to fly ANZ again someday.

Cons: A little weird, to go out of secured concourse and go back through security, again, in Auckland. Safety, I suppose. At least process was fast and efficient and folks were friendly.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Not a thing. Air New Zealand charge for everything and there is no point being a Virgin Australia frequent flyer when travelling with them.

Cons: Service, seats, crew: the whole experience. Air NZ are awful

Okay 5.6

Pros: Entertainment.

Cons: I had three flights with Virgin Australia, all to get to and from Sydney and to and from the US. ALL THREE FLIGHTS WERE DELAYED, one even being a 2-3hr delay, and compensation was only $8 AUD voucher at the airport - just enough to get coffee! Excuses were made due to weather, some say it was due to staff. Never will I fly with them. Disorganized and never on time.

Good 7.0

Pros: Very smooth flight. Good service and food though the items on the food tray were just the meal and a dessert snack. Other airlines have food trays with salad, fruit, the entree and a snack dessert. But as long as we get there safe and sound I am ok.

Cons: Boarding process in Miami was chaotic. Started late as the crew reported late to the flight. Nobody knew what's going on until the gate agents made an announcement that the crew was reporting late. We departed almost an hour late.

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: Tv didn't work to Australia so they moved us to the back row and tv quit working again on the return flight. The flight attendant wasn't helpful and I would rather fly with Jetstar this flight was below budget airlines

LAX
Good 6.6

Pros: I liked that there was food available and that they offered complimentary snacks and drinks. Some of the crew members were nice and offered good service. I liked that they offered some type of entertainment and free wifi.

Cons: I didn't like that some of the crew members were not very nice. I also disliked that some of the crew members drove the food/beverage cart violently through the isles and saw as one of the crew members rammed into another person's leg, to only say "oh sorry" and kept on going. This same crew member missed picking up the trash from an entire row and was throwing trash on the floor. She was more interested in caring for a baby on board (not sure if it was her daughter or family member) than the rest of the passengers. I also didn't like the seats were so close to each other, the person in front of me almost hit my face when he reclined his seat all the way back. There wasn't much room to breath let alone stretch.

Good 7.3

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.

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.
