Pros: "Great crew and good was good"
Cons: "A bit of turbulence during the flight"

Cons: "The food and the seat comfort."
Pros: "Crew was nice and ready to help"
Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."
Pros: "Great leg room. Good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Did not know that we had to download entertainment app So consequently no inflight entertainment Pack in like sardines"

Pros: "Staff was wonderful. Food and cleanliness was good. Pilots communication was accurate and helpful."

To add to the anxiety, we noticed that none of the bassinet seats were allocated to parents with infants. There were at least 3 families with infants and lots of children due to school holidays. But we all had to make do with our cramped seats. Maybe Qantas can plan this better. It isn’t so difficult as they usually know how many infants are travelling, in advance."
Cons: "The plane required the note book to view current movie but the note book has to have the app installed before take off. It was not properly draw my attention in advance via e-mail or text messages. For such a long flight, Qantas should have a better plane to server this route. Totally disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was great..easy check in for a techno dinosaur like me."
Cons: "Was not impressed with the seat armrests...but it was my first time on the dreamliner...usually fly airbus and sleep like a top !Would also prefer not to have to do customs till I reached Adelaide but thats just a minor quibble."

Cons: "The Q streaming app has limited options and a nuisance to use. Better to have screens on back of seats as of old or at least a better selection on the streaming service."
Pros: "check in easy at Adelaide airport"
Cons: "The plane had small drop down screens every 4 or 5 rows which are totally inadequate for watching anything. gives no choice and poor sound quality (lag between vision and sound) Pork meal was some sort of tasteless slop in a cardboard box with rice and a green veg. It seem as if short flights are getting a raw deal with old planes and sub standard food, systems to save costs. If they cannot maintain a consistent level of standard across all their products let another provider in who can."
Pros: "Punctual flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The iPads for the entertainment system were cumbersome. Initially they didn't work for the whole cabin and the FAs had to reboot the system. They were also finnicky to operate. Also, needing to stow them for take-off and landing was a bit cumbersome. It would be much better to use the traditional fixed screens."

Pros: "Free wifi is amazing! This is something all airlines need to take more attention of!! Some airlines have ridiculous charges for wifi."

Cons: "Simon and His team were wooden and lazy."
Pros: "Good movies. Food was good. Flight was good."
Cons: "Not much leg room."

Cons: "Nothing was bad!"
Pros: "The first. Captain flew brilliantly or however many there were"
Cons: "During the international flight a lot was not healthy. The crew were disinterested in the work in economy class with the exception of a very helpful young man. The announcements couldn't be understood, the speakers crackled so much and the stewardesses spoke in very heavy accents. There was still debris from the previous flight in the seat holders. The entry into the plane smelt unfresh . The TV. Programming was limited and often did not work. Overall it was a flight that lacked international standards. The final flight to cape Town was excellent. I was going to write you a letter. We are capable of much higher standards and I felt ashamed. The international flight to Perth was better but the flight back from Perth was not good. Every flight should be welcoming and helpful. The attitude and involvement of flight crew makes or breaks the journey even if the craft is old and not perfect With regards eva young and trusting that this review canbe of help."

Pros: "Free booze. That was literally the only redeeming quality of this 30+ hour trip."
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane I flew on (Delta) was different than the company I booked with (Virgin Air). The 15 hour Delta flight was extremely uncomfortable with little leg room (I'm only 5' 3") and no outlets to charge devices. Additionally, my virgin air flight from Perth to Sydney that ran from 12 am to 6 am had no blankets or pillows. I was freezing cold. The stranger next to me saw me trying to wrap my jumper around my feet to keep them warm and offered me his wool jacket to stay warm. Wifi would have also been nice... no wifi."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, always smiling even though they were exhausted!"
Cons: "Too many kids. The child seated by me kept kicking me and climbing on me during the whole 13.5 hour flight. His parent did nothing. I had a 20 hour layover in Sydney arranged after the flight was booked due to changes."

Pros: "The full refund."
Cons: "Jetstar cancelled my New Years Day flight on the evening of New Years Eve “due to crewing requirements.” It was a blessing-in-disguise because it forced me to fly Virgin for the first time. Not only was my last-minute Virgin ticket cheaper than Jetstar, I didn’t have to pay the ridiculous extra baggage fees Jetstar charges, and a meal with alcohol was included in my flight. Virgin all the way!"
Cons: "Hardly any ice When the people in front reclined their seats I couldn’t hardly move Late as udual"
Cons: "Yet another holding pattern over Melbourne which seems to always happen with jet star"

Cons: "Crew didn't come around enough with water"
Pros: "They got me were I was going, just as it says on the tin."

Pros: "The pilot made such a smooth landing, it was one of the best I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Probably just the delay and time management for boarding"
Pros: "On time. Safe and smooth."
Pros: "Quick check-in"
Cons: "The whole terminal is budget. Hardly any seating once you go through to the gates and its a 7-minute walk back to the food court. Nowhere to charge phones. Nothing complimentary on the flight so if Virgin or Qantas are around $20-30 more, do it!"
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: "Everything....no food, no entertainment"
Cons: "Unexpected fees"
Pros: "Noting out of the ordinary"
Cons: "The return flight was over 30 minutes late but was not announced. After the take-off time passed, I found an employee who told me it was going to be late; so although it was never announced, Jetstar knew the plane was late."
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"
Cons: "How close the seats are."
Pros: "never fly with Jetstar again ripped off with return baggage cost girl at reception seemed to get pleasure at taking 60 dollars from me for another hidden cost"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No water"
Pros: "It was a quick flight, managed to leave 10min earlier than scheduled. Pretty smooth."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, felt very straight and no real headrest; even though it was a new plane. Quite a lot of families with young children flying, it was the last domestic flight out so expected it to be less children. It was a bit noisy at times."
Pros: "Relaxed and no frills service."
Cons: "Budget seats with no decent pockets, hooks or cushioning"
Pros: "Got in slightly ahead of schedule."
Cons: "No lounge access, no complimentary snacks and drinks, miserable cabin crew, seating very very cramped in 3 3 3 config so not suitable for couples wanting a row to selves. Mosquito's flying round the plane. The pilot told us to "Rest in peace" at the beginning of the flight. Looking around at the passengers faces a better choice of words could have been used. Noise levels were terrible, couldn't hear the safety instructions because of the sound traveling around the aircraft.Luggage took a very long time to come off the plane."
Pros: "finally landing in Melbourne"
Cons: "cancelled flight 20 mins before transfer pick up. useless chat assistant and a virtual assistant hat could not assist. extra expenses for a later checkout, another transfer, food & rntertainment, paid day care and requesting more leave from work. Hotel we were offered only had one room available which had one bed for 4 people."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 3 hours but communication was good."
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."
Cons: "Awful service, took a booking from Melbourne to Aukland and cancelled 5 hours later. Offered no alternative or option but to leave our trip. Completely destroyed our travels which we saved years to accomplish. Avoid these (JETSTAR) like the plague, unless you want an incompetent airline to wreck your traveling. Words really cannot describe our feelings towards our treatment and lack of any empathy from the airline, who took a booking and then cancelled it in record and and said there is no other flights! Thanks for that - never again."
Pros: "Sleep well"
