The seats were very uncomfortable

Good 7.5

The plane left on time, the boarding took 25 minutes but was on time. My seat wasn't quite working properly but it only reclines a small amount anyway so no issues. Disembarkation was orderly and quick and I was on the train to the city in minutes. From the long term carpark the bus stops right out front and likewise to pick you up. Kiosk checkin was easy and the trip on the escalator upstairs was straightforward. for 50% cheaper than Qantas and Virgin Blue i am sold.

Seems strange that your boarding pass is checked three times. Arriving there and checking in 45 minutes beforehand given the new terminal seems a bit over the top but the plane does leave on time. Meals are expensive for what they offer on board but you can always bring your own.

Upon arrival at the airport, I'm told checked in luggage is not included. This is the first time I've had to pay for checked in luggage at the airport. During the process the staff ignored me at the counter as they changed over staff. Then took a call on their walkie talkie as I'm standing right there in the middle of processing my paid luggage. Flight took off late. I would pay more to fly another carrier and have better service.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

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 prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons 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 don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires 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.
