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

Okay 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.

Okay 4.3

Pros: While the airline is cheap, that's it. They charge for everything and are rather obtuse about it. It costs extra to select a seat, the airline seems to specialize in putting families with small children in the 'premium' seats which mean those of us who want a quiet trip instead get a screaming child behind, next to, and in front of us. Food is extra! They will give you water if you ask but otherwise, pay.

Cons: The luggage policy is opaque. We boarded in Honolulu, going to Sydney, and checked our bags at no cost in order to limit our carry-on to 7 kilos per their rules. The return flight was to follow the same plan but they told us it would be $160 AUD per piece at check-in! Granted, $160 AUD is only $115 USD but that's OUTRAGEOUS. They looked at the luggage and said we could carry it on! Who makes these rules?! The Aussies have it figured out but if you're an American with no prior experience BEWARE. The Aussies I spoke to refer to Jetstar with a much more derogatory term ending with star. Wonder why. If your goal is a comfortable flight to/around Australia, take another line. If you want cut-rate, cattle-class with a high risk of a screaming child in your ears (I was wearing noise-cancelling headphones), then choose Jetstar. For my purposes, Jetstar is no-star. I won't fly them again.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Seats were comfortable for coach (I take sanitary wipes and wipe down my area because it is usually not up to my standard), restrooms were clean and spacious, flight was smooth going both ways. Flight attendants were attentive and would help you out with whatever you needed (use the call button!). We paid the $7 each to choose our seats. Do this, if you can...the exit rows near the restrooms have a lot of leg room.

Cons: Baggage fees are pricey! We paid about $50 USD (each way) for one suitcase (25kg). Buy a hand held weight or weigh your bag and pay online PRIOR to your flight. Give yourself 5 extra kg of room just in case. Trust me, this will help and work out better than waiting until check in. Also, make sure your carryon is not over the allotted weight. They will weigh it at check in. I wish there were more entertainment options. Paid the $10 both ways...trip was 9+ hours each way. There are only maybe 30 or so movie choices, a few TV options and some games. On the way back my monitor froze a few times and restarted itself. Check in at Sydney was a nightmare. It took 60 minutes to check in one bag, but security was smooth and fairly quick. The food options are few and you have to pay for everything except water. We got a coffee and a soda and it was around $10AUD. A little pricey for a 3/4 cup of coffee, no refill.

Cons: Got a very saw neck. The angle looking at the tv screens in business class is very uncomfortable when seats are reclined. Good was average at best. Not sure I'll fly again unless I have too.

Good 7.3

Pros: Fantastic value flight, new dreamliner planes are a plus

Cons: As with any value, there are some caveats. You must purchase baggage, food, seating and entertainment separately. Fee for all these services can amount to a full fare ticket on another airline that bundles it all in the price of your ticket, so shop around. Website is somewhat confusing on baggage allowance. You can purchase a set amount of weight, and decide that up into as many bags as you like. Ex: purchase upto 40kg max, and you can take 4 bags, 10kg each, or any combination there of. Also, make sure to purchase baggage online as doing it at the airport counter can run 25usd PER KILO. Enjoy your flight.

Pros: Good boarding routine. Planes are clean and comfortable. Staff is efficient.

Cons: Initial price good, though ultimately cost a lot more with all the charges Jetstar imposes. Food is a disappointment for the price.

Pros: Food was nice although expensive. Crew was great. the auto tinting Windows was nice.

Cons: We were so dehydrated after such a long flight. The little cups with only a few sips with your meal is not enough. More water! Comedy options for movies were just bad. Our seats would not stay reclined. Painful sitting/sleeping on such a long flight. Jetstar is supposed to be a budget airline but they really aren't cheaper after they nickel and dime you and then bring out the long sword on the cost of luggage. The 7kg allowance per person on board with no option to purchase more was really hard for us - 2 adults and a baby - and the diaper bag is counted as part of your 7kg, unlike flying in the US. We had 7-8 hr layovers in cool weather.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: Virgin does a great job for a great price. Having Resided in the USA for 12 years I've flow many times across the pacific on each of the airlines and I can confidently says they are lightyears better than any of the American Airlines. On my return trip from Sydney I had hit some extraordinary traffic and it took 2hrs to get to the airport in what is usually a 40min drive. This resulted in me arriving less than 1hour from the flights departure time, the checkin staff did what they could to keep me on the flight as planned. Staff in all areas were great, it always a fresh breath of air when I board a virgin Australia flight, so different than traveling in the US of A....

Cons: The Food on Virgin Australia is ok. From the United States to Sydney it was average, on the return leg the quality was much better. They served 2 meals and a mid-flight snack. Their snacks and water station Mid plane is a very welcome touch on the long haul flights. Perhaps one more pass with the full drinks cart will help them join the heavyweights at Qantas.

Pros: My experience boarding was a bit of a disaster as the boards at the airport stated an incorrect gate and reported an hour delay which was not correct. I ended up having to sprint to make the flight in a different wing an hour before I thought it was leaving. I barely made it onboard. I think this is an issue with the airport, not the airline but this is the only forum I have to state this. My experience with the crew was amazing. Very welcoming and hospitable. My experience with the airport staff was the opposite. Very unhelpful and cold. The flight went fairly smoothly, but, as is the case with most American airlines these days, the seats are uncomfortable and cramped. The inflight meal was good (for airline food) and very much appreciated on the 6 hour flight. Overall, this was a pretty typical American flying experience. Unfortunately, I was returning from flying with Asian and Australian airlines which were much more comfortable and customer-focused, so my experience on Hawaiian seemed subpar.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: The price and ease of use to buy the tickets were amazing.

Cons: I bought travel insurance to ensure that if anything came up, the trip would be covered. Because of the fire in Australia and my asthma, my doctor recommended I no longer go on the trip. With my doctor's note, we were able to get a full refund on our airBnB rentals, but not on our flights. Turns out the travel insurance doesn't cover natural disasters and pre-existing conditions. It only covered if I got a disease right now and my doctor said I couldn't travel now. When we bought the tickets, the fires weren't drastically destroying much of the country's landscape and the air quality. I was still able to cancel the trip, but I only got $358 back from my $758 travel payment, and it cost me $100 processing fee. I pretty much only got $258 back. I also paid $50 for travel insurance that didn't really cover anything. I don't think I'm ever going to buy travel insurance ever again. It is what it is, and my health is more important than money...but still...

Okay 5.0

Cons: I went online to put that I needed gluten free food and when everyone else was getting their food I was told no gluten free food on domestic flights so I got no food. You need to take that option off of your website if you don’t intend to serve people with celiac.

FAQs for booking Sydney to United States flights

Are flight prices cheaper from Sydney to United States because of Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
Currently, KAYAK has observed decreased prices for several flights because of COVID-19. Unnecessary travel is not recommended at this time, and flights may be at risk of cancellation: please refer to local authorities in both Sydney and United States for any travel warnings, and please check the airline's cancellation policy and travel advisories before booking your trip. For more advice, please view our information page on what to know about coronavirus (COVID-19) and travel.
How does KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool help me choose the right time to buy?
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a given destination and date is likely to change within 7 days, so travelers know whether to wait or book now.
*
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.
