Airline reviews

Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."

Cons: "The food service was not great. They should increase the frequency of meals. Got the worst seats both time. The seats are old and recliner doesn’t come forward as it should"

Pros: "I liked that nothing was a hassle to get to, the staff were amazing and the pilot was well-skilled."
Cons: "My only con was the fact that there were many people around me coughing. That's not your fault though, I understand. But still, it was nasty."

Pros: "Crew were good. Better service than in business class"

Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It's a pleasant experience"

Pros: "This flight had significantly less turbulence than my flight to Melbourne"
Cons: "The headphone jack to watch movies was broken so I wasn’t able to watch anything over the 14 hour flight. This was especially frustrating because I had to pay for my seat selection and I assumed all of your seats would be in working order."

Pros: "Lovely crew especially Heidi"
Cons: "Nothing, all was well"

Cons: "Less gate changes"

Cons: "No back-of-seat screen, overhead screens lacking enough contrast to see much. No matter, I looked out the window instead!"

Cons: "Great! On time"

Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."

Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."

Pros: "WiFi on board"
Cons: "Still don't like greasy toasties for breakfast but better than butcher muesli"

Cons: "Food was awful."

Pros: "Could not fault"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Pros: "Overall feel of the flight. The focus in safety"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3.5 hours. Limited selection of movied"

Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Very smooth, made it alive."

Pros: "Flight was late 30 mins"

Pros: "Snacks provided were very nice. Flight was shorter than expected."
Cons: "Nothing we didn't like, all was good!"

Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."

Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"

Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."

Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"

Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"

Pros: "Staff polite and friendly. Entertainment on my ipad with wants content great."

Pros: "Really nice hostesses. Professional, friendly, interested in travellers. Very welcome when you're travelling home after a long day."
Cons: "Planes are looking a bit tired."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"

Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."

Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"

Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"

Pros: "Individual usb charge port and meal"

Cons: "Terrible procedures in Sidney and Los-Angeles with uncertainty, broken schedule , chaos and wasting passengers' time."

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."

Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."

Cons: "I was right by the toilets"

Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"

Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"

Cons: "All round excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "can not think of any."

Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Cons: "Crowded"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Seat material (leather) and cushion was comfortable."
Cons: "No leg room, my knees were pressed into the back of the seat in front, which became very painful. No wriggle room without disturbing person alongside. A ridiculous "snack". What happened to biscuits and cheese? Not trendy any longer i presume. Even Qantas serve that! No wine. Again, ridiculous. Condescending stewards, if that's what you are supposed to call them these "woke" days."

Pros: "They charged me so much for extra luggage even I prepaid online for extra luggage prior to getting to airport. Yet the ticket counter lady made me pay an additional fee and all together I ended paying more for extra bags fee than the ticket itself! both Virgin and JetStar are VERY stingy on extra luggage fees. I came from the US to Australia and traveled domestically while there with all the luggage that I brought from the US. So I had to pay so much in fees when my trip was already so expensive! It makes me reconsider wanting to travel again anywhere anytime soon, so discouraging! Also they make me take stuff out of my big suitcase and transfer to my carry on, in front of everyone at the ticket counter I had to open my suitcase and transfer some stuff so the weight is under a certain weight. Still they charged me for extra luggage. I came international on Qantas from USA to Australia, so all the domestic locations I went to I was charged"

Cons: "An attendant working in the check-in was very rude. I was unable to check in using the kiosk so I requested assistance from an attendant near the kiosks.The attendant refused to assist me and told me to wait until the other attendant was free. That attendant then helped the white man next to me."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "Better Movies"

Cons: "In flight entertainment die not work for me..."

Pros: "the crew was nice and helpfull"
Cons: "The Flight was 45 min late. Always families with kids are putt in the back of the plane, so every thing else is taking so much longer because you make us wait for everything. longer ques at the boarder patrol etc."

Pros: "Good space for economy"
Cons: "Did have to pay for a snack … but hey, its virgin!"

Pros: "Good boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Seat and legroom"

Cons: "My ticket was deemed void when I was checking in and I could not get on the flight. I will never book via kayak again."

Pros: "Staff,service, ease of boarding"
Cons: "Small space leg room, lack of content on entertainment"

Pros: "although late leaving we made up a bit of time."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment, no sweets on descent and the staff were grumpy"

Cons: "Un-personal and clinical in approach to guests...especially as we are paying guests! Had just returned from overseas, flying Qantas and Singapore airlines.... virgin was decades away."

Pros: "Nice crew and fast and smooth flight"
Cons: "Didn't go much on the snack food!"

Pros: "Overall comfort of both plane and staff"

Pros: "Had a window seat with great views of the countryside- 2 hours seemed to pass quickly and the crew were good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very helpful"

Pros: "Comfortable seat than other airlines. Good movies choices."
Cons: "Didn't have wifi"

Pros: "Comfortable short flight"
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay and was told they had to wait for the paint to dry????"

Pros: "Check in staff most helpful,traveling with oversize lougage,surf board and kites along with carry on.no fuss and searched seating so l had a spear seat on red trip home.thanks"

Pros: "Great crew and good service."
Cons: "Two things - I dont like is the size of the seats. They are far too small. Most people are relatively big these days and when you sit next to a large person or between two large people the whole flight is so uncomfortable. The other thing is the air vents - no where near enough air coming through those - please fix :("

Pros: "It was an enjoyable flight and we were well looked after by the staff"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I was put on another flight 1 hour 20min later, this meant having to rush. I bought the tickets based on time, and did not expect to have to run"

Pros: "New clean plane and great service. This flight was far more comfortable than previous flights over this long distance."

Pros: "Glad I wasnt conecting internationally..Plane problems..Other airlines might have offerred some compensation for 2.5 hrs late.."
Cons: "Otherwise fine"

Pros: "Flight crew were great."
Cons: "Got told to "sit back down and don't worry" when our first flight was delayed, after I asked the lady at the gate that we may miss our connecting flight. She put other customers on different flights to make their connections, but when I approached was denied, and ensured we would make out next flight. Missed the next flight and had to wait another 3.5 hours for the next flight, even after explaining the situation to a gentleman at the customer service desk, he said he could not help us, and gave my partner and i am $8 food voucher while we waited as a 'sorry'. Then on the way home another 30 min delay. horrible first experience flying, Was very disappointed in the customer service & missed my brothers wedding. I should have booked Qantas instead of Virgin."

Cons: "there were not enough desks to check in at brisbane so many people missed there connecting flights. I flew with Delta and the process was much easier. Simply just dropped my bags off. Was also told the flight was being held, then when I arrived at the desk was told my bags wouldn't make it on the plane."

Pros: "The new App for you mobile device is good. I enjoyed watching the movies to help pass the time."
Cons: "There is never enough room in the seats. I am not a big person, but when a big man is sitting in the seat next to me I do not have my own space."

Pros: "Everyone was super helpful and friendly."

Cons: "TVE information they sent me to the email about the airport terminal was confusing: there is not terminal D un perth airport."

Cons: "I was sat next to a rather large person and felt squished some of the time"

Pros: "Overall this flight from Brisbane to LAX was fairly pleasant. Despite being reluctant to commit to any changes in the (uncomfortably cold) cabin temperature, one of the crew did respond to my inquiry by returning to say they had adjusted the temp upward to 24C, which in my mind earns them an A for Effort. What I had of the food was acceptable, but nothing to write home about. The touch screens seemed to work much more effectively than in the past, so those may have been upgraded. The crew I dealt with were generally very pleasant and responsive. The restrooms had sufficient toilet paper (never a guarantee), and as a stroke of luck, there was virtually no turbulence, that always makes things nicer."
Cons: "I was right by the gate before the flight but never heard any announcement calling out rows, the economy passengers just started herding themselves (as always) and eventually got in line/on the plane in what seemed to be a haphazard fashion. Like so many times before, the air conditioning was set too cold (they said it was set to 22C as if this is normal - that might be an average setting of comfort for a grown male wearing a full suit and walking around in an office setting, but not for a plane half full of females who aren't able to move around and get their blood circulating). The music and movie selections seemed to have changed over the years. I have pleasant memories of Virgin Australia offering virtually anything your heart could desire at the touch of a button, but this time around I couldn't find any artists that I recognized let alone liked, and the movie selection seemed much thinner. Licensing issues perhaps? For me this was actually disappointing."

Pros: "Boarded and departed on time. Good smooth flight."
Cons: "No window at seating. Disappointing for child traveller"

Pros: "Staff Are Lovely and so Helpfull"
Cons: "Just don't Like Flying haha"

Pros: "Smooth flight, departed on time"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "We arrived intact only 3 hours late and we were informed early"
Cons: "Seating far too little leg room. Too close together."

Cons: "I paid $65 for a seat with extra legroom, 13F, but at the airport found that I had been moved to 8A. Couldn't get my seat back, so spent 25 minutes on the phone to Virgin Australia today getting a refund."

Pros: "The free snack us an unhealthy chocolate..ok for spinning freeinflight ad but insulting to the intelligence of customers"

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Small seats, which did not recline at all, to the great discomfort of several passengers in our area, including us. With particular physical limitations due to old wounds, i have to say it was painful and unexpectedly difficult for the nearly 3 hours of incarceration. Partly this was exacerbated by the lump of head rest not moving high enough away from my shoulders. My travel companion has a head rest which was also wrecked, come away from its frame and unable to be sorted properly. In all, a poor set up for a flight."

Pros: "On time & comfortable, with reasonable food."
Cons: "Service from flight attendants wasn't as friendly as usual."

Pros: "good to include a free snack"
Cons: "Three of our party are coeliac and no gluten free option was available and the only choice we were offered was to purchase the gluten free cookie - which we declined. The picture in the back of the menu of the free snacks included a gluten free option so we were a bit annoyed that this wasn't available."

Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "There was no entertainment this was especially annoying on an almost 5 hour flight. Seats were too squashy."

Pros: "the crew was amazing"
Cons: "the seats were uncomfortable"

Cons: "May be offered water to everyone."

Cons: "Boarding"

Cons: "Be sure to book your luggage in advance to avoid high fees."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "I cannot believe that when I put the table down I could not move & at 80 kg I was by no means the biggest person on that plane!!!!!"

Pros: "The crew is beautifull"
Cons: "The time schedule"

Cons: "Hardly any ice When the people in front reclined their seats I couldn’t hardly move Late as udual"

Pros: "Efficient on time"
Cons: "One young cabin crew member was very polite and welcoming - ? Angela The other older woman would not even acknowledge me or say hello / goodbye despite me saying hello"

Cons: "The flight was delayed which caused us to miss the last shuttle bus for the car hire company - we had to catch a cab instead - luckily the car hire company reimbursed us for the cab fare, even though it wasn't their fault."

Pros: "On time. Safe and smooth."

Pros: "The plane got us to Darwin."
Cons: "$60 per checked bag, even at 30 per bag its still more expensive than other carriers, so if you have a bag to check, skip Jetstar"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The rear of the plane was filled with screaming babies, loud uncontrolled children kicking the seats in front of them (mine). Equally loud mothers baby-talked continuously to their offending offspring with no effect. Cabin staff made no attempt to control the noise levels. I recognize some of these small children could have been suffering ear pain from the cabin pressure changes but trained cabin staff could have offered remedies for this. It does not explain the continuous screaming at cruising altitude. I recognize that JETSTAR is an intentionally cheap and nasty airline. I reluctantly took this flight because there was no quality service (like QANTAS) at the time I required. I accept the lack of amenities offered by REAL airlines like complimentary food, drink, entertainment and healthy legroom are the cost of cheap travel but I would have happily paid a higher price for QANTAS had there been a flight. I will not fly JETSTAR again and if no alternative exists with QANTAS, I will choose another airline in spite of my long allegiance to QANTAS CC: QANTAS"

Cons: "So I didn’t like how the flight was canceled which caused my wife and I to stay an extra day in Sydney. We missed work and needed to take an extra vacation day. But I’m not really upset about that. What I’m REALLY upset about is that I had to reschedule the connecting flight to PDX which cost an additional $400. Is that reasonable to upset? Jetstar basically just put their hands up and said sorry lol"

Cons: "Bad weather. Also in the air... but the captain now it well what to do. We're very happy tp be landing in storm at Darwin."

Cons: "Unexpected fees"

Pros: "I wasn’t able to select a seat and was assigned a middle seat, but the service desk agent at ADL moved me to an aisle seat without charge. Food was reasonable value and tasty, if cold (who refrigerates a muffin?!)"
Cons: "Usual Jetstar pain having to call to add extra luggage (qantas booking) and then curiously Jetstar telling me to ring qantas for an updated itinerary"

Cons: "They lost half of our pushchair and it took 5 days of endless phone calls for them to agree to replace it"

Pros: "Decent leg room for a 6ft person. More than most US flights"
Cons: "Zero entertainment"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No water"

Pros: "Very pleasant staff on board and land crew. Difficult to judge food as it was only a snack and as the flight was only just over the hour there was no entertainment ."

Cons: "Flight delayed over 3 hours but communication was good."

Pros: "Fairly much on time"
Cons: "My muffin was served to me cold. $5 for a cold muffin. Next time I’ll get a hot chocolate instead."

Pros: "Smooth quick flight!"
Cons: "Wish we had known you don't even get a free cup of soda, water, or coffee.. But a short flight so was ok... No frills, cramped, but ok for a short trip! (husband is 6.1 feet and couldn't put knees together in front of him)"

Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "I'm a thin man and am 5'9" (pretty average height) and I couldn't fit comfortably in my seat. The space between rows was so tight my knees were squished into the seat in front of me."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late"

Cons: "The carry-on baggage policy is ridiculously unfair and they don't tell you about the 7kg carry-on restriction at the desk but charge you 50 dollars at the gate when you don't have any other options but pay before you miss the flight"

Pros: "Excellent boarding process."
Cons: "No drinks or snacks"

Cons: "As I stated previously this company's complete lack of concern for customer service is appalling. I have directed my managers and staff to ensure that this company is no longer engaged to supply transportation to any of my companies"

Cons: "Customer service and Jetstar CANNOT be used in the same sentence. Flight cancelled by carrier no viable options offered by phone representative held on the telephone for over an hour whilst travelling to airport in an attempt to get a flight home. Holiday cut short, had to return rental car 1/2 day earlier than what had been paid for, lunch reservations had to be cancelled and no responsibility accepted by Jetstar representative. Well they have definitely lost me as a customer, none of the companies I own would treat a customer in such a manner we believe that we NEED customers to stay in business. Then to top it all off had a hour and a half travel time from Bne as opposed to half an hour from Coolangatta."

Pros: "Smooth transition for daughter who needed assistance to board"
Cons: "Having to sit apart especially when there were vacant seats"

Pros: "Nothing was wrong with my flight."
Cons: "No entertainment units, and it was a long flight."

Cons: "Was charged 50$ at check in at airport for luggage. It was a carry on size they said it was over weight had flown with same items on several different airlines, Quantas, American, and virgin no one else stop me. If this is how they get the ticket cheap, just state that upfront. So I know and am not surprised at airport."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled at the last minute. Jetstar doesn't have a customer service line you can call so it was very difficult to re-book. The chat was clunky and not compatable with mobile phone. Then they couldn't refund the extra fees I had paid for assigned seats - that is a "different chat site" though I was reassigned a Quantas ticket and given tickets that had us split up on that flight. They couldn't give me a booking number or anything like that for the Quantas flight either. I will just save the hassle and fly with Quantas next time. Unimpressed with JetStar and their customer service was terrible. Still out the refund money and frankly it is worth it not to have to deal with them again."

Pros: "smooth,effortless"

Pros: "We had to change our flight and were still able to get a good flight and seats"
Cons: "Paying for food and drink"

Pros: "Flight was delayed and board said new time was 40 mins later when plane arrives. Gate then changed very close to boarding time."

Pros: "I like the fact that when you book a flight you then have to pay for a seat .... What do you expect us to stand ! then you have to pay for baggage and all the other hidden costs .... after you have payed !"
Cons: "Dont have a credit card and they say we will be only taking credit card for beverages . On the flight over they said the reason was because we came from Bali and had no change but why the flight from Adelaide so again couldn't buy anything... Great service !"

Pros: "JetStar was the only carrier offering a non-stop from Adelaide to Cairns. That's why we chose it."
Cons: "Be aware that you get a 7 kg carry-on allowance, and pay for checked luggage, by weight. Cheapest to buy when you book the ticket, can be purchased before you get to the airport, and very expensive at the airport. Seats are jammed together, very little legroom. Best to know going in that it is a low-cost, no frills, no space airlines."

Cons: "We booked through Kayak and weren't told that when you book a flight with Jetstar, you get NO BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE. ZERO, ZIP, NIL. We didn't know this and assumed like other Australian and New Zealand carriers, we would each get one free bag, so I went online and paid $25 for a third bag. When we checked in for a domestic flight, we were told that we would have to pay $400 to send our luggage with us. THAT WAS MORE THAN WE PAID FOR OUR SEATS! We were also told that had we paid for our luggage ahead of time, it would have only been $60. Be very careful if you fly this airline. Make sure you know what is and what is not included with your ticket, especially if you use a third party to purchase your tickets. PS - All drinks (including coffee, tea, soda, etc.)are extra. Frankly, I'm surprised they don't charge for using the toilet in flight"

Pros: "personality of the team - very friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "When I booked from USA thru kayak I was told I would have 1 checked bag & 1 carry on . At airport I was charged $682 for luggage cause " I didn't say I was flying with luggage "supposedly opting out of the $ 35.00 fee for luggage. Only other option was to re-book for next day loosing out of bookings in Cairns which was not an option. Many other passengers on our flight faced same predatory practices by Jetstar. Gate agent said website changed to be more transparent. This is not true Luggage fees more than doubled cost of flight. This is only direct flight from Adelaide and you're trapped .""

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Change the boardkng Gate last minute. Impossible to Check in our luggages with the iPhone app. Extra cosy 160$ ridiculous!!!! Few flight personnel for checkin, long waiting Time ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Spent 260 dollars on extra baggage fees, and you had to buy everything on board as an extra charge coffee, juice, anything. Total rip off"

Pros: "Awesome lady at check in."
Cons: "Just disappointing to need to pay for a cup of coffee. This is just too cheap to feel good about."

Cons: "Seats have no lumbar support. Uncomfortable"

Cons: "over charging for carry on"

Pros: "Flight was non-stop and low-priced."
Cons: "I purchased a flight leaving at noon. Time was changed to 5pm, then a month later to 9am, then back to 5pm. That's an 8 hour time change. I had to move my hotel reservation for the night before the flight from Port Douglas to Cairns. I had to reschedule my coach transport from PD to CNS. I arrived at Darwin airport at 7:05pm--very inconvenient as I was being picked up at 6:45am for a 3-day trip to Kakadu. Besides flight time changes, expect to pay extra for everything on board and be sure to prepay luggage costs. Cramped seating on a very full plane."

Pros: "The crew was reasonably friendly"
Cons: "Be aware of baggage weight limits and hi bag fees. Limited drink options on plane."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "We expected to be offered water, but were not; unless there was some announcement which we could not understand."
