Pros: The basmati rice with free range chicken meal was surprisingly really tasty. I usually don't like airplane food, especially when you have to pay extra on board for it, but I was hungry on a 9 hour flight and had to order something.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Seats were comfortable for coach (I take sanitary wipes and wipe down my area because it is usually not up to my standard), restrooms were clean and spacious, flight was smooth going both ways. Flight attendants were attentive and would help you out with whatever you needed (use the call button!). We paid the $7 each to choose our seats. Do this, if you can...the exit rows near the restrooms have a lot of leg room.

Cons: Baggage fees are pricey! We paid about $50 USD (each way) for one suitcase (25kg). Buy a hand held weight or weigh your bag and pay online PRIOR to your flight. Give yourself 5 extra kg of room just in case. Trust me, this will help and work out better than waiting until check in. Also, make sure your carryon is not over the allotted weight. They will weigh it at check in. I wish there were more entertainment options. Paid the $10 both ways...trip was 9+ hours each way. There are only maybe 30 or so movie choices, a few TV options and some games. On the way back my monitor froze a few times and restarted itself. Check in at Sydney was a nightmare. It took 60 minutes to check in one bag, but security was smooth and fairly quick. The food options are few and you have to pay for everything except water. We got a coffee and a soda and it was around $10AUD. A little pricey for a 3/4 cup of coffee, no refill.

Also, the flight originally was scheduled to leave Kauai at 1:45 and somewhere along the line it got changed to 1:15 but I didn’t know that somehow... glad we made it on time... Did not like how you had to have your own device in order to have movies or entertainment... pretty lame. This airline has so much potential!

Pros: I liked how they were on time to Sydney. The plane was larger and more comfortable. It was pretty clean throughout. The pilots were experienced and we had a good landing at both ends. There were nice screens for each seat and USB charge inputs.

Cons: I didn't like the fact that I couldn't do a web check-in for flying to and from the US. They didn't have any kiosk to do a check in as well. The line for a manual check in at the Sydney airport was very long (over 40 minutes). The food was really gross, unsettling to my stomach, expensive, and served in the tiniest portions. They charged me $160 to check in my carry on (must be 7 kilos). They randomly choose which baggage to weigh. The flight attendants barely spoke English. The desk staff are understaffed and work at the front and the gate, which was unusual.

Pros: You pay for everything extra (like most budget airlines), but the entertainment package well worth it, and Sumo salads/toasties on the menu very tasty. People who complain about luggage restrictions should be aware international travel is much more strict, and will not "look the other way" as American airlines do. Do your research, people!

Cons: Not notified about US requirements to fill out back of ticket, so got pulled aside at the gate to do it. Passengers included large group of obnoxious children who ran up and down aisles, chattered loudly, and disturbed other passengers. Adults who were traveling with them did nothing (if you see a group with huge bows in their hair, avoid at all costs), so flight attendants should be better about enforcing rules and keeping order.

Flight was 9 1/2 hours late!

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: My son and I had previously taken Jetstar from Bangkok to Melbourne (out of desperation; our Thai visa was expiring), so we already knew about a) no complementary food or beverages (you get one glass of water if you ask, then are pointed to the back of the plane and the tap) b) having to pay to watch movies c) no email confirmation of flight d) uncomfortable seats What we did not know but learned on our next JetStar flight (Melbourne to Honolulu), a week later: -again, no email confirmation, and as we were out of continent, we had no personal cellphone usage so no text to tell us the flight would be leaving 3.5 hours late (other customers were getting conflicting texts) .. -we were charged a criminal $160\each extra for our backpacks at checkout!! They said it was weight, and that our packs were too large for carry-on. (Frankly, upon reading all the other comments here, I am beginning to think this is a scam, and they need to be called on it.) As we paid an extra $320, plus the airline was late, I asked if we might at least get a $10 meal voucher. Answer? No. The airline has to be 4 hours late. -asked for a pillow and blanket for the approximately 10-hr night flight. Answer: "No pillows, and you had to book a blanket in advance." I am outraged.

Pros: Very awesome! My first flight, I had a bassinet reserved but had no idea where it was, how to use it, etc. This flight back home, before liftoff, a flight attendant strolled by and let me know about it and how to use it. Overall, extremely pleased with the entire flight and experience.

Cons: They waited until my last flight to weigh my carry on and then tell me that I had to check it in for $80. I just got off that flight and the person at the counter cleared my bags so I understand the money grab. Also flying 12hrs and then 8hrs and not having your meals complimentary is a big problem. They are nothing but a money grabbing selfish airline. Never again

Pros: The plane got me to my destinations

Cons: Although I was asked if I wanted to purchase a meal upon booking, it wasn't clear that everything onboard (including water) was for purchase. Beverage service was also confusing because some flight attendants gave glasses of water for free after meal/beverage service while some did not. I'll just bring everything I need to eat or drink if I don't purchase it in advance.

Cons: Hidden fees for baggage are exceptionally high and are structured to take advantage of first-time users who are not aware of Jetstar's baggage policies. They burned my wife and I for $695 on checked bag fees on our golf clubs. This after they were "nice enough" to round the weight down a bit. Even in $AUS, that is a nasty surprise at the airport. The only way I would fly Jetstar again is for a short-haul, no-checked-baggage flight.

Excellent 9.0

Pros: Really appreciated the 'laid-back' feel upon boarding and throughout, supported by the ambient slack-key guitar and native Hawaiian music. Also appreciated the engaging video presentation of basic safety and security information. "Free" Premium Entertainment was welcome, although I remained aware that this perk had been covered in my ticket price.

Cons: Considering that you're attempting to please a wide array of tastes, the mass-produced ready-made meals were pretty good, just not necessarily five-star restaurant made-to-order preferences. Some of us are pretty picky about our organic, fresh, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. In that Hawaiian Airlines seems to market itself as a very conscientious and customer-friendly airlines, any evolution in this direction would be welcome.

Pros: Was a short flight. Crew was great.

Cons: Boarding was a mess. Part way through boarding they opened up a second line to scan tickets. So everyone that was in line behind us ran up up to the front of the new line. Extremely frustrating for all of us that now had to wait longer.

Cons: The attitude of the crew towards passengers with children. They made us wake up our sleeping child because she was on a blow up cushion that obstructed her leg space. Even though we explained it could be deflated in a single second and was not causing harm to anyone else they still made us move it. Also, they gave us a guilt trip for changing a peepee diaper in our seat (careful not to touch any seats) and wouldn't take the trash. As any parents knows, changing a diaper in an airline bathroom is one of the most unsanitary and awful things you can do with your young child due to the extreme lack of space. Airlines in general should make a "family bathroom" with more space for parents to change their kids.

Okay 4.5

Cons: Change in Jetstarflight times messed up our other connections and we had to stay in Melbourne 2 extra days (at our own expense) to avoid the a 12 hour layover in Sydney on the "next available flight" that was offered instead. Seats were very uncomfortable (especially the headrest), too close together, and mine didn't recline. There was a lot of turbulance, unlike any I had ever been in before. The plane seemed to be shifting left and right instead of up and down. The temperature varied from too hot to too cold.

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.
