Literally 3 employees standing around chatting while I'm trying to find someone to help with my passport not reading. Then standing at another counter waiting to be helped while being completely ignored. I understand when you're busy (even though he didn't seem busy) but at least acknowledging my presence would've been lovely. Also- baggage fees for this airline should be criminal.

Cons: Gate attendants didn't show up until 30 minutes before the flight departure which seemed a bit odd and disconcerting after 46 hours of travel.

Must get luggage allowance on line at least 4 hours in advance of departure. Seats are tighter than any U.S. carrier including Spirit and Frontier. Kayak should somehow warn passengers unfamiliar with Jetstar airlines policy!!!

Mediocre 2.3

Pros: The crew do their best with the terrible hand they are dealt. In short, I would say the airline works really hard at making the travel experience with them one you never want to experience again. Quite fitting to hear the sound of sheep bleating when you deplane in Christchurch. That's how Jetstar treats its customers. Tiniest space you can imagine, worst online experience and not even a drop of water en route, other than purchase.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Jet star counter at Melbourne has the WORST customer service I've ever encountered. Literally 3 employees standing around chatting while I'm trying to find someone to help with my passport not reading. Then standing at another counter waiting to be helped while being completely ignored. I understand when you're busy (even though he didn't seem busy) but at least acknowledging my presence would've been lovely. Also- baggage fees for this airline should be criminal.

OK 4.0

Pros: Not much to like... well I guess they got me there safe... LOL

Cons: Uh... $25 a kilo over baggage weight ? Everyone on plain carrying bags that weigh 10 tons due to that.. which makes everyone's experience quite lacking... Staff not very friendly nor helpful both service and flight attendants.

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.
