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?

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.

You have to look it up on internet to get the rates. How can you know months ahead how much your luggage will weigh!

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.

Cons: Variable policy on luggage. On the international flight they didn't get the weight of carry on luggage, if they did you would get a huge fine for paying for the extra weight. Better to just pay the cost ahead of time if you know you need to check luggage. Check in onto the plane is still a bit of a mess, always seems to be "every just get on" type of process.

Good 7.3

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.

Excellent 8.0

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: We had a 3 hour delay. Was given a voucher only $8, which was only good for water.

Cons: Thats why its cheap...

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.

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.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: I arrived safely.

Cons: Nothing good to report. Uncomfortable seats. Not even water seved on one 3 hr flight. Invisible flight attendants. Disorganized boarding. Idiotic carryon 7 lb weight limit. Soon they’ll be charging by passengers’ body weight. $145 for 2 checked suitcases. No option for free seats. Very long line mandatory to check in. No kiosk to get boarding pass. Pay for entertainment. Had them booked for 3 flights. The worst.

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.

Cons: I paid for for “sports equipment” when I purchased my ticket, however was still made to pay an extra 275$ For my bike upon arrival at the boarding gate. Not happy. I lined up for 1hr 7 minutes before I was able to check in, ridiculous - I just got to the gate as it was boarding and I Arrived 3 hours early for my international flight.

Good 7.6

Pros: Great crew. During meal time they did a great job of having passengers adjust their seats so people could eat their meals in economy. If they didn't do this, it would be left to the passengers to ask the person in front of them to raise the seat or have to struggle to eat with that person's seat close to your face. Having the crew do that was great. That is another thing nice with this Hawaiiian aircraft. The seats actually have leg room in econonmy and they recline enough to rest. Don't change that! Also very nice is that you get a complementary wine or beer with your meal :-)

Cons: Entertainment options felt like 'nickel and diming'. It is a 5+ hour flight and all the seats have personal entertainment consoles. The only thing is you have to pay ~$7 to watch any of the movies. Be sure to have your book or device loaded up before flight. Each seat has a USB charging port :-), however it only has low amps - this means you can't charge things like a tablet :-(.

Excellent 9.0

Pros: First I was very happy that the flight to Melbourne was direct, no intermediate city. On that flight Honolulu boarding was by rows from the rear of the plane, which meant the plane boarded the full flight rapidly. The serpentine approach and using both front and rear entry sped up boarding Melbourne to Sydney. The fare was outstanding--I was aware during booking that I would need to add on for baggage, seats, food, entertainment. Jetstar advertises itself as a lowcost airline. I thought I got good value for money. I see most complaints are coming from domestic Australian passengers.

Cons: Seats in coach are 9 across in a Boeing 787, just a wee bit cramped sideways although legroom was not a problem. I do agree that coffee and tea should not be charged for--AUD 4 which is $3. The other problem is one at Sydney where AUD 6 is charged for a five minute bus to the international terminal, Jetstar should make this free.

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,
