Pros: Efficient boarding and grateful for the spare seat with the baby on our lap. Crew was nice enough.

Cons: We waited for a $9 toastie for 25 minutes- and had to remind the crew to get it. Disappointed that they are so cheap the only free thing on a 10 hour flight was water- after paying for checked bags, one coffee, and one sandwich, the extras made them more expensive then other "non budget" airlines.

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.

Good 7.3

Pros: The airline and staff appear to be friendly and efficient

Cons: Seating in economy is tight. You really cannot move without annoying the passengers on either side. This also makes eating difficult.

Good 6.0

Pros: Check in was fast and easy Baggage claim was no wait

Cons: An hour+ delay due to a baggage discrepancy. But they were very apologetic and I'm glad they got it sorted before we left, understanding it was a security issue. But my seat was pretty horrible. The last seat at the back across from the toilet in the aisle - and there was no window in that row. Little kids running around (but luckily I like kids so I didn't mind).

Okay 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.

Okay 5.6

Cons: As an incoming traveller and a Platinum Qantas member, I was refused access to the Qantas Lounge on arrival in Townsville. All I wanted to do was spend fifteen minutes reviewing my diary and directions for the visits planned here. This is the Irish version of hospitality. God bless his departure.

Okay 4.4

Pros: Flight attendants were friendly and responsive.

Cons: 1. Better seats than mine flew empty, while I sat wedged in a full row, behind a wailing infant and ahead of a kicking toddler. 2. The meal choice was between a rice bowl and a salad, both served bereft of any sides, bread, or dessert. 3. We were late again, although not so badly as last time.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: I wish the land staff can be not so discriminative and please stop personal threaten against customers. Their bag drop leader Racheal is the most horrible person I have ever met in my life. Because of this horrified experience, I would never take Jetstar again.

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.
