Pros: "The lounge and space on the flight"
Cons: "Bizarre that the passenger across the aisle from me had a ticket to Sydney which had been scanned twice by staff, didn't work, they couldn't work out why and let her on anyway after phonecalls from steward. She wasn't too pleased to be in Adelaide with all her luggage supposedly on the Sydney flight (last minute gate change). Security breach and error!"

Cons: "I usually buy Eco X seats but this time forgot."
Pros: "Good Service"
Cons: "I was offered a seat near an exit door on the proviso I would help people in an emergency. I assumed this was because I am about 2 metres tall with my shoes on i.e. bit hard not to notice when I am at the counter. I actually got given a seat in Row 25 on an Airbus 321, which is the row in front of the spacious row 26, and row 25 has less kneeroom than the ordinary rows. Uncomfortable trip"

Cons: "Received a chewy muesli bar Aussie bikkies wd have been much nicer Thank you"

Pros: "The seating was comfortable"
Pros: "Security was super fast. Boarding was straight forward."
Cons: "Jetstar baggage policy is, as most know, annoying. 7 kg limit on carry on bags or else you have to pay for extra “weight allowance.” Quite annoying since I can’t very well weigh my bag at home and it really changes nothing. You still bring the bag on the pla e. You just have to pay extra"

Pros: "Crew, food and timelines"

Cons: "Plane could have been cleaner"
Cons: "Only one problem was the temperature was too warm during flight."
Cons: "I didn't check in my bag, didn't bother to weigh it. They weighed it at boarding and it was too heavy (my bad, I probably should have checked) and had to be checked in. My gripe is that they made me pay $60 even though my ticket included a free piece of luggage. Their argument was that I didn't use that facility at check-in and therefore waived the right to that piece of check baggage."
Pros: "Easy check in, child's play room even though we are not parents, spacious lobby"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "They don't tell you at the desk that they'd charge 50 dollars at the gate if you bring more than total 7 kilo of all your luggages"

Pros: "Arrived safely, flight quick. Staff friendly"
Cons: "Price so costly for a quick trip for family function"
Cons: "Delayed departure which affected my travel plans"
Pros: "Service is very good"
Cons: "Food is inadequate for vegetarians and vegans. It is not too difficult to adjust the menus to include more interesting food variations. Virgin, Tiger domestically make a bigger effort. Jetstar cheeses have animal rennet - not necessary in this day and age. Toastie could be cheese and tomato, not only with bacon.. I complained to Jetstar head office, and the response was inadequate. Proof is if they make an effort and change. If another airlines is similar price with better food, I would automatically go with the other carrier. It's all part of hospitality. Jetstar are stubborn. Irrespective of being a low cost airlines - no excuse."
Pros: "Nobody told i couldnt bring luggage had to pay extranfee"
Pros: "Their website and web check in is too basic!"
Cons: "Not understanding that online baggage allowance was for checked bags; then having to pay, at the counter, $50/bag and $15 for extra weight over 15 kg. was unreasonably exorbitant. Especially, as there was a notice stating the extra weight was for anything over 20 kgs."
Pros: "On time, polite, friendly crew. Smooth flight. All good. And good value for money."
Pros: "It was quiet. Quick and comfortable waiting for our flight. I enjoyed the meat pie, coffee and service while waiting. I was aloud to have a nap. Felt refreshed. Kayak gave me a great price. I saved $400 for my family flights all up."

Cons: "Flight delayed out of Adelaide. Terminal 4 at Tullamarine is badly designed - drop of/fpick up long way from booking in and gates long way from booking in area. Disembarking on to tarmac in pouring rain unpleasant - no umbrellas"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "Jetstar nickels and dimes you to death. $4.00 for a cup of coffee as an example."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, no frills but nice and relaxed."
