Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."

It took us nearly 3 hours to collect luggage and depart the airport."
Pros: "Take off was smooth"
Pros: "The food was pretty damn good Staff were friendly"
Pros: "Extra Leg Room, 3 seats between 2, worth the extra money, surprised they provided breakfast"

Pros: "Check in staff did the best to accommodate, however it later turned out that their knowledge of the aircraft seat plan was incorrect"
Cons: "A330 was too small for this distance. Seat pitch felt worse than newer domestic aircraft. Left the whole exit row free. I know you have to pay for this but as a gold member you might have thought they could accommodate if vacant and me being unable to fit my legs behind the chair. Only 3 working toilets for all of economy wasn’t enough either. Entertainment didn’t seem to be as good as previous American flights."
Cons: "Delayed flight VA1519 Sydney to Townsville. Received sms that new flight is 2pm Received email that new flight is 3pm Called virgin who guaranteed me it’s 3pm so I asked for that in writing...no was the answer Asked to speak to mgr, same lady came back to now “guarantee “ it’s 2pm. Spoke to mgr this time guaranteed 2pm and Will email in half hour (I’ll be boarding by then ! Sorry best I can do but you are now in seat 3a economy x. Asked for complaint to be lodged, unsure if she did? At virgin check in no details of everything above. Showed lady two conflicting msgs from virgin and the above so she put me in 3a... I could have been there at 3pm if I didn’t ask for it in writing. That potentially could have cost me upwards of a grand if I had to stay another night in Sydney and another ticket... not happy!!!"
Cons: "When we got to the Virgin Australia desk, they said we could not Board the plane and we had to arrive at least 90 minutes prior to boarding per Sydney Airport regulation. Our Jetstar flight arrived 10 minutes late to the gate. This gave us 55 minutes between flights. We had no chance to make the connecting flight. Kayak and Kiwi.com should not have allowed us to book that flight because there was never 90 minutes prior to our international flight. I am very disappointed in Kayak and will reconsider using this site to book in the future. We had to buy an entirely new flight to get to Fiji which costed us an extra $700. I would like to speak or email with a customer service representative to discuss this issue."

Long boring flight with no entertainment in flight. Very Very Disappointing Robert Richardson 0895930984"

Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller."

Cons: "My Fiji flights between Honolulu and Auckland were cancelled so they rebooked me on Jetstar and New Zealand Airways Apparently the international date line was not taken into account and I arrived in Sydney hours after my connecting flight to Auckland had already left! I talked to 7 different people in all corners of Sydney airport and no one knew what to do with me. My attempts to call Fiji Airways from my cell phone and then a landline at the airport didn't go through so I ended up messaging a friend in the States and she was able to call and get me booked on a NZ Air flight to Auckland that left the next morning. Both Jetstar and NZ Air gave me different information on what paperwork I needed and what my baggage and carry-on allowance was, which was frustrating. I finally arrived in Auckland 26 hours later than scheduled. I understand the cyclone cancelling the Fiji flights but the rescheduling error caused some significant expenses and a great deal of hassle."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic,,,to being on tine, to boarding and to service thru out the flight. Five star airline!"
Pros: "The flight itself was good, the front end/airline was not so good..."
Cons: "They were a minimum 45 minutes late (one 2 hour, 2 one hour) for every flight. Their running late caused us to miss our connection to Brisbane, so they sent us to Sydney. The ,late flight into Sydney cause us to miss our flight into Brisbane (our ticketed destination city). As we de-planed on the Jetway was a woman holding a sign with 12 - 114 names on it, we were one. She told us to go the the transfer desk and they would help us. We had never been in Sydney, could not find a transfer desk (there was none) found the ticketing counter - nobody there, found the airline office - nobody there, went back to the ticket counter nobody still there, asked a competing airline, they directed us to an air travel management office, where we found Fiji Air personnel. They were surprised we were not told where to go. they tracked down the office manager. We finally met with him at 1:40 PM, he told us our flight was in the domestic terminal and scheduled to leave at 2:00 PM. There was no way we could make it to the plane on time. He was rather rude to us and asked us how we thought we were getting to Brisbane, We responded with "I don't know as we've never been here before". Having never been there. we did not know there was an international and a domestic terminal at the Sydney airport. He told us who we were to fly out on and he was going to call over to the other airline and straighten it out. We went to the domestic terminal tried to check in for our flight, but we could not. That airline called Fiji Air to find out why, after half an hour they were told Fiji Air would not honor our flight as we were noted as "no Shows"/. We had to book another flight to Brisbane. The flights were great, we have had VERY BAD EXPERIENCES with the ground personnel,"

Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "asked for a blanket... girl never came back with one"
Pros: "Check in staff and flight crew."
Cons: "Online booking, telephone reservations and ticket office staff. Booked 2 tickets in my name, couldn't get corrected passenger's name corrected by online or telephone then went to office and after hour wait and several calls to superiors wanted to charge me to correct their system's error!"
Pros: "Except entertainment and comfort i did not like any thing else."

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Pros: "Got us to Nadi safely."
Cons: "We had a banana from LAX airport and intended to eat it on the 13-hour overnight flight. Unfortunately we forgot about it. The customs at Nadi found it on X-ray and slapped us with FJ$400 fine! One of the Fijian bio security officer told us that "by handing out big fines, we hope the airlines will remind passengers of biosecurity rules...". But Fijian airways failed to do that. $400 fine is a horrible start of your vacation and we will never come back to visit Fiji. We will also advise all our friends not to visit Fiji on facebook."
Cons: "I was not given a meal for dinner. When I asked they sheepishly looked away from me and told me that there would be a voucher when we landed. We did not get any voucher,nor did they make an announcement that they ran out of food and would not be able to feed half of the plane. I am extremely disappointed in how this was handled, as people next to me were given first class meals and I was given one piece of cheese and one cracker. In the morning for breakfast my meal almost didn't come, I had to ask for it. And when it was given to me it was already opened and messed with."

Pros: "Modern aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no reason at all. Rude staff. Forced a domestic flight to land/take off at an international terminal so we had to go through customs control before taking off and after arrival. Pay some more money and fly Qantas or anything but awful Jetstar..."

WILL NEVER FLY WITH JETSTAR AGAIN!!!"

Cons: "Booked a ticket with 20kg checked bag; didn't pack as much so took a carry on. The flight was delayed so they decided to weigh carry ons. It came to 10kg plus Laptop bag. They charged me $50 extra. On explaining I have 20kgs included and am happy to go check it in myself. They didn't let me. Not sure why when the flight was delayed by more than 30 min. staff not helpful or considerate. No solution offered to make me happy or to acknowledge that I had already paid for 20kg. I could be talking to a machine and it would've been the same outcome."

Cons: "Beer was warm. At that price for average beer it would be nice to have it cold!"
Pros: "I was rebooked to JQ7001 which is VERY disappointing as it leaves Sydney 6 hours later than JQ199, my original flight. Reason given by Jetstar: JQ199 has been closed. An outright lie as JQ199 departed Sydney as per schedule today. I"
