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: 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: 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.

MEL

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.

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.

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.

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 :-(.

Pros: Hawaiian Airlines consistently deliver top-quality service for economy class. The flights are more comfortable than the average, the crew is always very pleasant. I also appreciate that they make an effort to be eco-friendlier.

Cons: I wish they had bigger range of food option. The entertainment system is not that broad but I don't mind, I can entertain myself on a flight.

Cons: Overall my experience was terrible. My flight was delayed. I had to return my rental car at 2pm for a 5pm departure. 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.

Cons: direct flight from Melbourne cancelled due to "engineering requirement. Had to take a flight the next day that included a stop in Brisbane. That flight was delayed 6 hours due to another engineering problem and we had to get off the plane with our carry on luggage. No compensation offered for first cancelled flight. I will never travel Jetstar again

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.

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 5.0

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.

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.
