Cons: I booked an international flight between Syndey, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand on Jetstar. About a two weeks prior to our trip I received an email that, among other things, asked if I needed to Pay for "extra baggage". Naive me! I assumed that on an international flight that one bag was at no charge. But NO! When I got to the counter to check in for the flight I was told that since I hadn't paid for our one bag per person prior to now, that they would be charging us $100 US per bag. If we had purchased it prior to checking in the cost would have been $20 per bag. After paying $200 for our two bags I felt totally taken advantage of. Beware. "Extra Baggage" means ANY baggage!

Pros: although late leaving we made up a bit of time.

Cons: No inflight entertainment, no sweets on descent and the staff were grumpy

Good 6.5

Cons: It would have been a normal trip but we were delayed about an hour in Cairns because the passenger count didn’t add up to what the computer said. This made it very tight to catch our next flight. Barely had time to use the bathroom.

Cons: They ran out of sandwiches after only servicing 1/4 of the plane, and they are the only substantial pieces of food to buy for dinner! I was starving.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: This crew really made the difference for the return leg of my MNL/TPE/SFO trip a most wonderful experience. Prompt boarding, quick deplaning, timely baggage claim, smiling crew, clean facilities, and great food. Comfortable seats really made entertainment more enjoyable.

Cons: Nothing...this trip was a clinic on international travel for a great price.

Good 6.6

Pros: Movies were great. Service to accommodate us (hotels, food vouchers etc.) was great!

Cons: The delay... it’s no one fault but it took up a lot of people’s time. It was frustrating the domino effect of pushing the flight later. I felt terrible for those who only had two weeks and lost two days!

Good 6.0

Pros: Comfortable plane and a good price

Cons: Long queues for check in at Manila - I should have checked in online. Boarding was chaotic and people were getting stressed - maybe people could line up in seat row order to make the boarding process smoother.

Pros: I like the crew. I think they make a very good job.

Cons: I didn't like that you have a limit at 7 kg at cabine bag. I came from Europe with a 10 kg cabine bag with WizzAir., then I continued with Saudia. I observed that Jetstar has that limit and I was obligged to take a checked luggage

Okay 4.0

Pros: Not much. 1hr 5min flight was 1 hr 10 min late. The cabin crew seemed disinterested.

Cons: The crew was poor. One chewing gum, another picking her hair/head throughout the flight like she has nits. The third lolling around and chatting/gossiping to the others. This is a short flight. The least they could have done was behave professionally.

Cons: Check and bag drop. Four people stood at the desks waiting til The exact min two hours before to drop bags. Time came they ignored everyone and they finally started. They were not that kind. They could take some lessons from NZ air.

Pros: Landing.

Cons: Huge delays on check-in. System failures but also elderly people not knowing the check in process and causing further delays. People taking too much luggage inside the cabin. No food options for gluten free. No water served. Smooth flight though. Check-in staff at luggage short tempered.

Pros: Neat in flight entertainment app that lets you watch, read, listen while you fly, right on your own device. Very nice touch.

Cons: The check in process. No one got there right when the airport opened at 0400 and they took their time getting the check in counters clean and ready for the day, having us all stand in line waiting to be checked in.

Okay 5.3

Pros: The lady at the check-in counter was very helpful!

Cons: The seat were pretty uncomfortable for a almost 4 hour flight. It felt like we were squeezed into a tuna can. Also was surprised there was not a movie playing or wifi available to pass the time on a long flight.

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Initially I liked the price and time of the flight, but the amount you have to pay for luggage negated the first thing, so all I was left with was convenient timing. The plane crew was nice, though as there was no beverage or food service unless you paid for it (they will give you tap water for free), there wasn't much for them to do.

Cons: They weigh your carry-on bag and have a ridiculous 7kg (combined personal and carry-on) limit. Then they blast you with a $25 per kg overage, so if you have the misfortune of being 5kg over (as I was) you get the pleasure of a $125 fee (which I just saw my card was charged $250 - I need to contest that). The seats are so thin you feel the tray of the seat behind you pressing into your back the whole flight, and they recline maybe a whole 2 inches. There is no entertainment, no beverage or snack service and the plane sounds and feels like a cheap car with terribly loud noise and no shocks. As I said in the title, I'd recommend quantas or new Zealand air and spend slightly more (or maybe less after the baggage overage fees) for a better all around experience.

Okay 4.3

Pros: Please notify kayak customers at time of purchase the need to prepurchase the food. The flight ran out of non prepurchased food. Also, allow the kayak customer to purchase in flight entertainment at time of checkout if cheaper as it was for jetstar

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.
