Airline reviews

Pros: "Comfotable flight, Good landing."
Cons: "Though one of the stewardess' was professional she was a little impersonal. That statement is a little harsh as she was very young. I am sure as she gains experience she will become great at what she does. Maybe a big smile would help when she addresses passages."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "I cannot believe that when I put the table down I could not move & at 80 kg I was by no means the biggest person on that plane!!!!!"

Pros: "Nothing actually"
Cons: "Late departure, uncomfortable seats, rude staff"

Pros: "Efficient processes all round - check-in, boarding, disembarking, baggage collection, etc."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It could have not been 2.5hrs delayed"

Pros: "The crew is beautifull"
Cons: "The time schedule"

Pros: "boarding has been delayed however there is poor communication between the staff regarding estimated of delay..."

Pros: "The seat was extraordinarily uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seat spacing was the worst ever. Aisle very narrow."

Cons: "Hardly any ice When the people in front reclined their seats I couldn’t hardly move Late as udual"

Pros: "Efficient on time"
Cons: "One young cabin crew member was very polite and welcoming - ? Angela The other older woman would not even acknowledge me or say hello / goodbye despite me saying hello"

Cons: "The flight was delayed which caused us to miss the last shuttle bus for the car hire company - we had to catch a cab instead - luckily the car hire company reimbursed us for the cab fare, even though it wasn't their fault."

Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "They find ways to scam you out of more money!"

Pros: "Easy check in, bag drop and courteous staff"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food or water"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The rear of the plane was filled with screaming babies, loud uncontrolled children kicking the seats in front of them (mine). Equally loud mothers baby-talked continuously to their offending offspring with no effect. Cabin staff made no attempt to control the noise levels. I recognize some of these small children could have been suffering ear pain from the cabin pressure changes but trained cabin staff could have offered remedies for this. It does not explain the continuous screaming at cruising altitude. I recognize that JETSTAR is an intentionally cheap and nasty airline. I reluctantly took this flight because there was no quality service (like QANTAS) at the time I required. I accept the lack of amenities offered by REAL airlines like complimentary food, drink, entertainment and healthy legroom are the cost of cheap travel but I would have happily paid a higher price for QANTAS had there been a flight. I will not fly JETSTAR again and if no alternative exists with QANTAS, I will choose another airline in spite of my long allegiance to QANTAS CC: QANTAS"

Cons: "$120 bag fee!! Plane was late. Ticket line took over an hour. Paying bag fee was a separate line took one-half hour. Gate was changed had to move 1/4 mile."

Cons: "Charged over $500 for our luggage a real Scam We never fly with Jetstar again!"

Pros: "Not much to like... well I guess they got me there safe... LOL"
Cons: "Uh... $25 a kilo over baggage weight ? Everyone on plain carrying bags that weigh 10 tons due to that.. which makes everyone's experience quite lacking... Staff not very friendly nor helpful both service and flight attendants."

Cons: "Unexpected fees"

Pros: "Staff was rude and wouldn't help find luggage from last flight"

Pros: "I wasn’t able to select a seat and was assigned a middle seat, but the service desk agent at ADL moved me to an aisle seat without charge. Food was reasonable value and tasty, if cold (who refrigerates a muffin?!)"
Cons: "Usual Jetstar pain having to call to add extra luggage (qantas booking) and then curiously Jetstar telling me to ring qantas for an updated itinerary"

Cons: "They lost half of our pushchair and it took 5 days of endless phone calls for them to agree to replace it"

Pros: "Decent leg room for a 6ft person. More than most US flights"
Cons: "Zero entertainment"

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Seats with no room."

Pros: "It's called "WiFi." Why don't you know about it?"
Cons: "More leg room up front. It's ridiculous that there's legroom."

Pros: "Fairly much on time"
Cons: "My muffin was served to me cold. $5 for a cold muffin. Next time I’ll get a hot chocolate instead."

Pros: "First time flyer very good"

Pros: "Plane delayed missed connection had to spend night in Melbourne"

Pros: "All very straightforward from boarding to landing. Pleasant and helpful crew. As comfortable as could be for a small plane."
Cons: "No entertainment available - although flight was only an hour so not really a big deal"

Cons: "The carry-on baggage policy is ridiculously unfair and they don't tell you about the 7kg carry-on restriction at the desk but charge you 50 dollars at the gate when you don't have any other options but pay before you miss the flight"

Cons: "As I stated previously this company's complete lack of concern for customer service is appalling. I have directed my managers and staff to ensure that this company is no longer engaged to supply transportation to any of my companies"

Cons: "Customer service and Jetstar CANNOT be used in the same sentence. Flight cancelled by carrier no viable options offered by phone representative held on the telephone for over an hour whilst travelling to airport in an attempt to get a flight home. Holiday cut short, had to return rental car 1/2 day earlier than what had been paid for, lunch reservations had to be cancelled and no responsibility accepted by Jetstar representative. Well they have definitely lost me as a customer, none of the companies I own would treat a customer in such a manner we believe that we NEED customers to stay in business. Then to top it all off had a hour and a half travel time from Bne as opposed to half an hour from Coolangatta."

Pros: "Reasonable price, quite helpful at check-in, got extra leg room for this 6ft. plus frame."

Cons: "Beware- no baggage allowed beyond minimal amount. Not suitable for a long distance visitor."

Pros: "Smooth transition for daughter who needed assistance to board"
Cons: "Having to sit apart especially when there were vacant seats"

Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Flight attendant that yanked my boarding pass out of my hand. 2d flight attendant who twice "forgot" to tell me whether she had looked for or found my luggage lock which had gotten lost when 1st flight attendant yanked my boarding pass out of my hand."

Cons: "Beer was warm. At that price for average beer it would be nice to have it cold!"

Cons: "Butchered by prices that were offered on Kayak and then taken to the airline sites where the prices are different. Jetstar rips you up with baggage prices at the gate. Nowhere does Kayak state that you have to pay upfront for Jetstar baggage......"

Cons: "Was charged 50$ at check in at airport for luggage. It was a carry on size they said it was over weight had flown with same items on several different airlines, Quantas, American, and virgin no one else stop me. If this is how they get the ticket cheap, just state that upfront. So I know and am not surprised at airport."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled at the last minute. Jetstar doesn't have a customer service line you can call so it was very difficult to re-book. The chat was clunky and not compatable with mobile phone. Then they couldn't refund the extra fees I had paid for assigned seats - that is a "different chat site" though I was reassigned a Quantas ticket and given tickets that had us split up on that flight. They couldn't give me a booking number or anything like that for the Quantas flight either. I will just save the hassle and fly with Quantas next time. Unimpressed with JetStar and their customer service was terrible. Still out the refund money and frankly it is worth it not to have to deal with them again."

Pros: "No issues with boarding"
Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "United did not ship our bag so we had to make a claim before leaving Cutoms in Aukland. We got to the Jet Star ticket counter 3"

Pros: "Comfortable seating and professional crew"

Pros: "smooth,effortless"

Pros: "my ear did no hurt"
Cons: "no food I little bit hungry"

Pros: "Crew polite and competent."
Cons: "Seating cramped and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Customer service and ticket counter staff pleasant--that's it. Everything else disappointing -- will not fly them again -- Air New Zealand or Quantas only; don't know about United Emirates; paid $100 for baggage greater than 7K on international travel -- only $50 for domestic travel -- beware!! Must get luggage allowance on line at least 4 hours in advance of departure. Seats are tighter than any U.S. carrier including Spirit and Frontier. Kayak should somehow warn passengers unfamiliar with Jetstar airlines policy!!!"

Pros: "Great electronic boarding procedures, mobile app and website. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable agents at airports and on-board. Will definitely fly JetStar in the future and highly recommend this airline!"

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."
