Pros: Managed to reach destination safely. Only taking about 8 hrs more than scheduled.

Cons: Flight delayed. The made boarded passengers disembark and wait for an unpredictable amount of time with no updates. Then finally we boarded then the service was very poor. For example they did not remove the dishes for about three hours after serving dinner. The last straw was that they diverted to Sydney instead of the final destination Melbourne as the crew was going over 20 hrs. With the diversion they saved about 45 min , but the exhausted passengers lost another 3 hrs in their already miserable flight. Also quantas NOT friendly for people traveling with kids.... BEWARE.

Pros: Base price for flight was insanely cheap, booked six months in advance.

Cons: Drastically different bag weight requirements than my connecting flight meant I had to shuffle everything around to meet the carry-on limits, then pay $100+ as my check bag went up two levels. Even anticipating this, it still cost double what I was expecting; must have been the difference between advance payment and day-of rates, but the degree of difference in cost left me feeling swindled.

Pros: The staff was all very nice and I always felt like they were doing their best to help. the situation seemed out of their control. It was nice of the airline to provide hotel and meal vouchers. (The meal vouchers didn't go very far at the Sheraton where all the food is very over priced.)

Cons: My flight was delayed 16 hours so I missed my entire trip to Fiji. This is devastating to me and I feel I should be compensated. Fiji Airways didn't notify me of the delay until I was already at the airport checking in so it wasted even more time and money. I bought this ticket because the flight time was convenient. Then it left at 3:55am which is the worst time to leave because I couldn't sleep beforehand and felt awful the whole evening and during the flight and after. To top it off the airline wouldn't check my bag through to my final destination. I was very unhappy with how this occurred.

Pros: Howzit, My experience from Honolulu to Melbourne from check in , boarding , inflight experience, deplaning was good. The check in agent was nice. The boarding agent was nice and let us board earlier.The Inflight staff was pleasant.I had an issue with my son's entertainment. It was not working. The prongs from a previous flight was stuck inside the holes for the ear phones. The inflight staff offered a snack for my son up to $10 which was the equal to the amount I paid for entertainment. I had paid for everything in advance,check in baggage , seat assignments,food, comfort pack,and entertainment round trip. I wanted my boys and myself to be comfortable for the 11 hour flight. My overall experience was good. Aloha, Irene

Cons: Howzit, My experience from Melbourne to Honolulu was exhausting.I could not sleep.These are my reasons why: 1) Our flight was delayed from a 5pm to 9:55pm, then finally to a 11:55pm.departure. I had to check in after 2pm. because I had to return my rental car at 2pm. I went thru a 3rd party and I was unable to extend my rental car return to a later time. We were given refreshment vouchers at check in. 2) By the time we boarded we were extremely exhausted,thirsty,and hungry for we have been at the airport for 9 hours with only three $15 refreshment vouchers. 3) Then, after the meal service my son vomited because he said his child meal, a pasta dish, tasted bad like it was old or spoiled. He said it didn't taste fresh. The inflight staff was pleasant and helped me clean up with serviettes. Then, the inflight staff reseated the passengers in a row right in front of us to other seats ,because of the vomit odor was unpleasant, and so my son can lay down to sleep,because he was feeling very ill from the food. My overall experience from Melbourne to Honolulu was exhausting because I could not sleep. My son was ill most of the flight from food poisoning from spoiled food he had eaten. Aloha, Irene

Pros: Finally getting home.

Cons: Jetstar cancelled our flight home and rebooked us on a flight 14 hours later. We spent 6 hours at the airport before they announced this flight was also cancelled. This was 2am. They put us on another flight scheduled for 1.30pm which finally departed at 2.30pm. Will not consider flying Jetstar again for an international flight.

Good 6.6

Pros: entertainment system was excellent, very up to date. broad selection of movies and TV shows, good selection of music as well.

Cons: seats were abysmal for a 15hr flight. These are similar to the intolerable seats and spacing for domestic (US) flights on legacy carriers (although, American is now radically changing seat dimensions and comfort on the 737-800). For a 6hr flight, it is not tolerable. For a 15hr non-stop flight, it is punishing. The Quantas A380-200 is no longer a new plane. The seat hardware is tired, lumpy, stiff, back-breaking. This could be improved by more space per seat, but it is not. I am 6'3" (189cm) and not at all fat (75kg), but the amount of seating space was tight. Again, this is an inconvenience for a short flight, and absolutely punishing on a long, 15hr, flight. It was not a cheap flight, and surely some updated seats can be put in, with fewer rows. By contrast, I flew back to US on Air New Zealand, and was entirely comfortable on a 12hr leg on very modern and spacious seats in the lowest economy class seat, on a 777 plane for a much cheaper fare.

Good 7.3

Pros: Crew was excellent! Very friendly and attentive - entertainment selection was great and the plane stayed nice and cool which is really helpful for a 15hr flight - no one needs 300 sweaty people for 15 its.

Cons: That we were required to check our overhead bag because it weighed more than 15lbs. Meanwhile as we boarded nearly every passenger had an overhead bag that most certainly weighed more than 15lbs. Not sure what was going on there...also the seats are a little tight when reclined. Once the seat in front of me reclined back I had my knees in the back of the chair the entire flight and I am not a particularly tall person- made for a pretty uncomfortable 15hrs.

Pros: It was the first time I have flown internationally and not gone through immigration when leaving the US. So was fast. The transfer on the bus was good.

Cons: Qantas needs some better salty snacks to nibble on, those soy crackers are like cat food. The transfer on the bus was not well marked or communicated to passengers. we were lucky to stumble onto it

Okay 4.0

Cons: Jetstar is always a little subpar. food and drink are not included even though it's international and the food for purchase was not very good anyhow. Entertainment was also extra and the selection was poor. flights were delayed and rerouted. They got us there, but with no frills at all.

Excellent 8.6

Pros: My seatmate and I commented at the same time, "where's the extra leg room we paid more for?" We we as comfortable as one can be on an 11 hour flight with 350 of our new best friends, but I didn't really see much difference between our seats and those of the regular priced seats.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: I honestly can't think of a single thing I liked about this flight, but if pressed, perhaps I enjoyed the staff in Honolulu during check in. The rest was horrible. Hated it all.

Cons: Absolutely horrible. This airline is truly the Greyhound of the sky. There was an absurd amount of families on this flight with really young screaming, ill-behaved children and their indifferent parents. The flight attendants were equally indifferent and unhelpful. You get absolutely nothing for free - everything cost - food, blankets, pillows, etc. on this 10 hour flight. AND when water was requested, it was a small, mouthwash size cup with a note, that "we charge for water." $4. Wow. Probably one of the worst experiences in the air ever. I won't be back. The price was stellar, but after paying for seats, luggage and enduring the people on the flight, I'd prefer to pay more and get A LOT MORE from an airline like Virgin Australia. If you're cutting corners and trying to save money, save yourself and your sanity and spend a little more on quality airline.

Cons: I wish the land staff can be not so discriminative and please stop personal threaten against customers. Their bag drop leader Racheal is the most horrible person I have ever met in my life. Because of this horrified experience, I would never take Jetstar again.

Okay 4.4

Cons: Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount.

Pros: Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated.

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.
