Airnz all the way.

Entertainment system, food etc (it will depend what options you choose).

Depends, if you dont mind getting there at a time they decide, Jetstar is fine, if you want to get there at a time you want to be there, Airnz.

Personally I will pay the extra to get there when I want to be there.


Edit Oops, sorry I was using my experience within NZ, international, AIRNZ no question.

I refuse to fly Jetstar no matter what the cost.

Since Pacific Blue have pulled out of domestic I have tried to avoid flying in favour of driving instead, but obviously that's not going to work for you if guide travelling overseas!

go with AirNZ! It costs me way to much to be buggered about by some half arssed joke for a airline (jet star)!
when jet star started off they stuffed me about and it took 2 days to get me to where i was going and the sad part was that this was inside NZ.

stuzz: AirNZ . I see so many disgruntled people giving them a serve on twitter. Schedules get changed often. etc etc


AirNZ will also change schedules after you have booked, which is very annoying after you have planned for months to get connections right, but I still find them the best airline operating in NZ. I think the best thing is to always use the same airline for all connections of your trip, incase a flight is delayed, which happens a lot. As with everything, you get what you pay for, and often when you try to cut costs, it ends up being more costly in terms of time wasted to fix it. Plus flying NZ is supporting NZ, as it is laregly kiwi owned, largely by us taxpayers.

AIRNZ any day I would not care if it cost me another $250 return

Swimming there and back would be more reliable than jet star

If you DO decide to fly JetStar:

a) Be prepared for your flight to be cancelled, rescheduled etc.

b) When it is, don't run onto Twitter and tweet about it like every other whiny, entitled retarded idiot that booked a Jetstar flight that was then cancelled, delayed etc.

You get what you pay for. If you go cheap (and there's nothing wrong with that) make sure you schedule in some buffer time because it will probably crap out. If you're cool with that, JetStar. If you NEED to get there within a tight timeframe, not JetStar.




I hate you.

OK the people have spoken. You guys are right and it is good to know I am making the right decision:)

With the world facing so many natural disasters and what not, I guess it is always best to go with a reliable airline that has the staff, planes and reputation to get you to your destination in quick time!

This is the first time you've mentioned flying Qantas?

(Ok ok, I'm leaving and taking my proud Australianess with me)

That irritates me too. Jetstar's problems are widely known, so you'd think that people would know what they're in for when they book.

You get what you pay for. If you go cheap (and there's nothing wrong with that) make sure you schedule in some buffer time because it will probably crap out.


Pacific Blue were generally much cheaper than Air NZ on domestic and I found their service fine. I think Jetstar's problems are particular to Jetstar themselves rather than to discount airlines in general.
