Jetstar Airbus A320.
Price: My return ticket was $160.
Flight time: 1 hour 25 minutes.
My seat: 7D on the aisle.
Fellow passengers: Mostly Asian tourists, some young families and backpackers. I sat next to a 4-year-old boy, who played on his mum's smartphone the entire flight without headphones. The constant repeats got quite annoying after 30-odd minutes and my NBA podcast was not enough to distract me.
How full: 98 per cent full.
Entertainment: My iPhone with a NBA podcast and headphones.
The service: The flight attendants were your standard friendly smiling bunch.
Food and drink: They had a selection of sandwiches which could be pre-purchased online and then your usual choice of coffee, tea, soft drink. I had one of their Australian beers (anything to distract myself from the child and his loud game).
The toilets: Clean, easily accessible.
Luggage: I had only a carry-on bag.
The airport experience: Auckland's domestic airport has got better but its bar The Bach could be improved; Christchurch airport's Mac's Bar is far superior.
The bottomline: You get what you pay for, it was your typical budget airline flight.
