Okay 5.6

Pros: I like the lady who checked me in.

Cons: First of all, your selection of food could be way better. You’re traveling between two places that have extensive access to rice - why is your gluten-free menu so poor? Your airline crew are scary and I’m worried that if there was a true emergency none of them would know how to get us off the plane safely.

There was no option to buy my baggage limit early so was surprise de and forced to pay a crazy fee! As it was my last legal day to stay in Australia I had no choice...

Good 7.0

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.

Pros: Food was nice although expensive. Crew was great. the auto tinting Windows was nice.

Cons: We were so dehydrated after such a long flight. The little cups with only a few sips with your meal is not enough. More water! Comedy options for movies were just bad. Our seats would not stay reclined. Painful sitting/sleeping on such a long flight. Jetstar is supposed to be a budget airline but they really aren't cheaper after they nickel and dime you and then bring out the long sword on the cost of luggage. The 7kg allowance per person on board with no option to purchase more was really hard for us - 2 adults and a baby - and the diaper bag is counted as part of your 7kg, unlike flying in the US. We had 7-8 hr layovers in cool weather.

Pros: Good boarding routine. Planes are clean and comfortable. Staff is efficient.

Cons: Initial price good, though ultimately cost a lot more with all the charges Jetstar imposes. Food is a disappointment for the price.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing. Had to pay extra for luggage that I thought was already paid. This is the worst airline for price gouging. This information is not very transparent if you book from the US. Kayak needs to make this more prominent for US customers. I will never fly with this airline again.

Cons: Unless you are purchasing something the stewardesses don't even ask if you want water. This was a10 hour flight. Stewardesses are not friendly.

Pros: The price. It is a budget airline and you pay for everything...EVERYTHING. The food is great, but you have to pay for it. The entertainment options were very good and it was a cheap $9 for my flights between Sydney and Honolulu.

Cons: I have now flown to Sydney twice from Honolulu for a total of four flights. Each flight had at least one bathroom that was out of service. The website doesn't work very well and didn't always present all of the options to me. For example, I wanted to purchase a meal but the website only allowed me to purchase a generic voucher instead of a meal. Once the website was working, I called customer service and they wouldn't refund me the voucher so I could pre-purchase the meal or apply the voucher towards the meal.

Pros: This no-frills airline gets you to and from Australia fairly cheaply, although when you start adding in all the extras, it may not be as cheap as first thought.

Cons: We attempted to add a meal online and were thwarted at every turn. It took a call and talking to a real person to resolve our issue. Plus, the in-flight service is so minimal; one person in our party tried to get a glass of water, and never received one. It seems a little parsimonious to charge for things like coffee and tea, especially on such a long flight between the US and Australia.

Cons: The flight was delayed 2 hours without any kind of adjustment on the flight status board, they just told us to keep checking back and listening for announcements. Everything from the food to the entertainment had to be paid for, not even complimentary snacks or coffee on an 11 hour flight. They didn't even offer water or anything at any point, had to hit the beacon to ask for it any time we wanted it and the flight attendants took extremely long and seemed almost annoyed to be bothered. The seats were pretty uncomfortable, more so than the seats on most 1 hour flights I take domestically (which also pretty much universally offer snacks and complimentary coffee, tea and soft drinks in spite of being a tiny fraction of the duration) and, not that this is within their control, but there were 2 infants on board that cried the entire flight through. I will never be flying Jetstar again.

When I went to check in I was told that I needed a transit visa for Australia because of my Indian Passport. When I booked the flight back in September, it was not a requirement to have a transit Visa. I was told by the Qantas supervisor that this was a new requirement as of October for Indian and Chinese passport holders even with brief connections. 9 people were in a similar situation the day before and denied boarding. I understand that things change, but I am very disappointed in the service provided to me. Of course, they could not help me get an evisa for Australia, but they were not even willing to help me search for it rebook a Qantas flight connecting in a different city/country. They did not even connect me with online reservations directly to quickly do something to be able to continue on my journey. They only gave me a phone number to call and sent me away. I tried the number and was on hold for almost an hour. Luckily, my friends were on a different flight on Air New Zealand that had seats leaving in 2 hours, and I almost missed that waiting to talk to someone from Qantas. I booked a ticket with Air New Zealand (by talking to their checkin agent, who was able to connect me directly with a reservations agent via a direct line, which was something I was hoping Qantas would help me with at a bare minimum) and I was able to purchase a ticket for that Air NZ flight and continue on. I’m VERY disappointed in the way that I was treated and not provided with assistance in a timely manner. I would have almost missed that flight and have to miss out on pre-arranged travel plans losing out on an additional $2000 in tour / accommodation bookings.

Okay 5.6

Pros: Clean, roomy and peaceful flight

Cons: Not being 20min late and having NO ground announcement about the delay and impact on connecting flights. When I suggest to a staff member that perhaps they should keep customers informed, they said they couldn’t because they didn’t know. They helpfully suggested I google for information! Seriously!

Okay 4.0

Cons: At Sydney, 6-7 check-in agents for probably 400+ passengers, nearly an hour wait. Airline model is cheap seats, then charge like hell for everything else. Want seat selection or movies or preassigned seat or uncramped seat? Pay up. Ended up assigned next to toilet on a 10-hr red-eye flight.

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: The flight was delayed 2 hours without any kind of adjustment on the flight status board, they just told us to keep checking back and listening for announcements. Everything from the food to the entertainment had to be paid for, not even complimentary snacks or coffee on an 11 hour flight. They didn't even offer water or anything at any point, had to hit the beacon to ask for it any time we wanted it and the flight attendants took extremely long and seemed almost annoyed to be bothered. The seats were pretty uncomfortable, more so than the seats on most 1 hour flights I take domestically (which also pretty much universally offer snacks and complimentary coffee, tea and soft drinks in spite of being a tiny fraction of the duration) and, not that this is within their control, but there were 2 infants on board that cried the entire flight through. I will never be flying Jetstar again.

Okay 5.6

Pros: This no-frills airline gets you to and from Australia fairly cheaply, although when you start adding in all the extras, it may not be as cheap as first thought.

Cons: We attempted to add a meal online and were thwarted at every turn. It took a call and talking to a real person to resolve our issue. Plus, the in-flight service is so minimal; one person in our party tried to get a glass of water, and never received one. It seems a little parsimonious to charge for things like coffee and tea, especially on such a long flight between the US and Australia.

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.
