OK 4.3

Pros: Boarding was easy.

Cons: I got an email stating the flight time had been changed to 23:45 but when I arrived it still left at the 23:15 original time. I paid an extra $73 for bags which is robbery. The 4 hour flight was freezing cold and I can't even get a blanket or cup of water without being charged?!? I know this is a low cost airlines but that's ridiculous!! Your passengers are people too, no just profits!

OK 4.6

Pros: Thanks for making my trip affordable, until I started wanting to check one bag over the 15-pound on-board limit, have some food, or even water!

Cons: It's important to be prepared for the extra costs associated with flying these low-cost airlines. I paid around $100 for each leg of my journey around Australia, Malaysia and Bali and it really added up. I had prepaid for the Air Asia flights, meaning I had to weigh my one checked bag, but didn't catch JetStar's rules until too late to do online. This resulted in additional fees, according to airport personnel.

Cons: At Singapore our flight from ICN landed at Terminal 3, our next flight to BLR said Terminal 2 on our boarding pass, we had less than 45 mins to get there but the shuttle was too far from our exit gate at T3. When we still managed to get to T2, we were tills to go to T1, another shuttle - again quite far away, we Ran & made it to our gate on time. Not impressed with the layout and lack of transportation.

Pros: The food

Cons: Very cramped seating, felt uncomfortable throughout, as the Co passengers arms were touching me, requested to move to another seat. Felt cheated as I had to pay for my seat when there were so many aisle seats empty. Had to walk to the aircraft inspite if requesting for wheelchair. Would have been nice if water was offered when plane took off, rather than passengers having to ask for it

OK 4.0

Pros: Lie-flat seats in business class

Cons: 4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing.

Pros: We enjoyed our low cost flight with Jetstar. Check in was quick and easy. Boarding was also. We didn't purchase any food or entertainment which is why I gave each of those categories 1 star (there's no N/A or doesn't apply-type option).

Pros: They eventually got us to the destination (24 hours late) but it was an ordeal the whole way.

Cons: Too many to list! After sitting on the plane for 3 hours with the door open freezing us out, the flight was cancelled at almost midnight. They didn't arrange hotel rooms so everyone had to fend for ourselves in finding a place to stay or getting out of the airport at midnight. We had to wait around for 24 hours until another flight. We didn't get extra legroom seats on that flight and they still haven't refunded the upgrade cost I paid and didn't get to use. Their customer service and ground crew were rude through this whole thing. On the next day's flight, it took hours to even get a water from the cabin service crew. Even the cheap price couldn't help us feel better about the POOR service.

Also the legroom and arm room is very poor indeed - who did you use as your models, pygmies? Also I was charged $100+ for a date change - but I was SURE I clicked the right date, and even if I didn't, you should have a confirmation screen which confirms what the customer is ordering before they finally approve the order.

Cons: I checked into my international flight and had a bag that was within weight limit. The cost for checking said bag is listed at 50.00. The attendant told me I had to pay 215.77 to check my bag. I then pointed out the price is listed as 50.00 on line. The attendant then said if I checked the bag on line, I would only have to pay 50.00. However, since I already showed up to the counter, I could no longer check in on-line and would have to pay a different price. The attendant then changed the boarding time, by moving it up 15 minutes, and said I needed to check in with him now. The cost of checking a normal size bag, on an international flight, was as much as the cost of the plane ticket. I was completely deceived and forced to pay a higher price that went against stated policy. I never agreed to pay the higher price nor did I sign for it… I was just charged that amount. I agree that I should pay a fee for checking a bag. That fee should be the same as everyone else and the fact that I was not allowed to check in on line punished me financially.

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 and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
