From Palmerston North Airport (Palmerston North) to Auckland International Airport (Auckland)
2 out of 5
Cheap flight - but what everyone says is true. Expect delays.
It comes down to this: You will get from A to B - but not necessarily when you expected. So if you can afford the time slippages - then $ for $ this is the cheapest solution. Don't fly Jetstar if you HAVE to attend an event or connect with another flight! Is it just my imagination - or does the equation come down to the Jetstar Operations Management canvassing the details and going: - hmmm we don't have a full flight - so we won't spend the $ running the service yet. We'll employ Excuse Code No: 5 of about 10 - which in my case was "your aircraft has been delayed in Auckland due to 'engineering requirements'", thus we can merge the two half empty flights into one - and save on the running costs. Who knows - but it's mighty suspicious when you would expect the airport to be fill of 2 sets of passengers waiting to travel - yet hello - it was still just one plane load 3 and a half hours later! Just saying. So again - for the cheapest option from A to B and it doesn't matter if you get delayed - go for it. As for me ... even though I could kind of afford to wait - it just wasn't really an enjoyable experience. BTW - get your complimentary voucher when told there's a delay.
