Price is right. It's such a short flight that it's almost possible to ignore the discomfort.

Late arrival of previous flight so late taking off. No leg room for anyone even slightly taller than average.

Oversold flight. Paid for a ticket to get home to attend mother's 70th birthday...Tiger resolved the problem by putting me on a flight more than 4 hours later. Missed my mother's birthday. My compensation - an $85 credit on an airline I will NEVER fly again. They can never compensate me for my missing family memories.

We were on the tarmak an additional 30 minutes, then in the air for an additional hour due to the weather. It would have been really nice if they had offered us bottled water or something. I was very surprised that even to get water it was a $4 charge. I likely will not be flying Jetstar again. I appreciate a company not nickle and diming with customers.

I had to pay over $200 for my baggage because Kayak didn't tell me that the flight I purchased didn't include at least one checked bag. There was nothing in any of my confirmations and Jetstar's fees are outrageous. Will not fly with this airline or book with Kayak again after this experience.

Kayak didn’t allow me to add luggage to my booking and forced me to go through Jetstars website and alter my booking. Here, the site only let me add luggage to my trip up. At the airport, completely unaware of the situation, I was made to look stupid then hit with a $60 “amendment” fee. On top of all that, my flight home was delayed an hour. This is the second time in 2 months this flight has been delayed.

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

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

We compile tonnes 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 can'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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
