Pros: Staff were friendly and courteous.

Cons: Everything is an add-on with Jetstar. Not only do you have to pay for all checked bags (and it's more expensive if you pay at the airport instead of at time of booking) but any in-flight meals, blankets, pillows, movies, etc. are for purchase only, and they are not cheap! Couldn't they at least spring for a pillow when you have an overnight flight?! Rather disappointing.

I was at the airport for 9 hours.The agent checking me in gave me $15 for refreshment.I thought that was inadequate for a long delay over 7 hoursThen,I was told that I was chosen randomly for extra security check at the gate by my government.After my meal in flight my 11 yr.old son vomits after he eats his meal. He said the food tasted spoiled and not fresh.I clean up his vomit.My son is sick the rest of the flight.It was a flight from hell.

Mediocre 3.3

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.

Good 7.0

Pros: Cheap flight and I felt baggage weight prices were reasonable separate. If you plan any baggage, I suggest considering buying the max up front. It's much cheaper that way and gives you flexibility since it's by weight and not bag count. Second best is anytime prior to airport. If you are overweight at the airport, you're doing it wrong. Bring your own food (I like Subway), water container, and entertainment for minimum discomfort. I would fly them again.

Cons: Boarding in Melbourne was a mess. They would not let passengers use the gate seating so most people stood in a stupid diagonal line and blocked the terminal walkway until boarding. Also, water from a flight attendant was not free. If you fly on a 787, please go to the back of the cabin and fill a cup/bottle there. Lastly, on flight food seemed meh and overpriced.

Cons: Airline food is always a bit rough. This was definitely on the 'better' side, but we were travelling with three small children, (ages 4, 5, and 7) and they didn't like any of the options. Luckily we had snack food for them to get through the flight.

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.

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: 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: 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: This was the worst airline out of 7 that I used in last 2 months outside the US!! The worst by far anywhere!

Cons: Overcharged for One checked bag at 22 kg, $286.00 Dispicable to say the least and then charging for everything and anything jetstar could get away with. Truly the baggage Scam, nickel and dime mafia!!!

Pros: I loved that they still have meal service, especially since the flight is soooooo long! The crew was very nice and attentive, and the seats were pretty comfortable.

Cons: However, the food was meh. Whatever the noodle mushroom thing was... The noodles were over-cooked but the meal itself was just barely warmed. The sandwich later on was great, though, so I guess it's hit or miss. We also couldn't hear the crew's announcements at all. The sound system needs an update.

Pros: The staff were lovely and helpful. I was re-seated on my flight to the emergency exit row and they really take care of you there. Boarding was organized and timely. Entertainment was free internationally (had to pay domestically).

Cons: There were no vegetarian meals which was disappointing.

Mediocre 2.6

Pros: A nice crew memeber comped my beer and food.

Cons: With Jet Star you can not check in early or buy luggage before the flight when flying to the US and when I went to check my bag the total cost just to Oahu would cost $680 and not even get it to my final location. 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...

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.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Very long lineups to check in. We arrived more than three hours ahead and were told to come back exactly three hours to check in. When we did, we waited for one hour for our turn. Then we had to pay AUD$225.00 for our one 20 kg check-in bag as no payment was received for the checked bag. We thought we did payment online but somehow the process did not go through to Jetstar. There is a cost for anything on board, even water. We had to dispose all our water before security check in. I would never travel with Jetstar again in the future.

Pros: The crew was polite.

Cons: Food: all food cost. Coffee/tea was four dollars. We pre-ordered our food and it was not available. They substituted our food with a large “cup of noodles“ which was terrible. Very surprised that all food cost. Too many unexpected fees. I’m uncomfortable plane! Way too crowded! Was charged and unexpected fee for a visa. Jetstar charged $50 per person! Flight was 9 1/2 hours late!

Not only do you have to pay for all checked bags (and it's more expensive if you pay at the airport instead of at time of booking) but any in-flight meals, blankets, pillows, movies, etc. are for purchase only, and they are not cheap! Couldn't they at least spring for a pillow when you have an overnight flight?! Rather disappointing.

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.
