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 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.

Cons: From the moment of boarding the staff seemed stressed out and over it. Not very friendly, especially when disembarking the plane in Honolulu. They didn't offer goodbyes or thank yous to passengers as we got off the plane.

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: 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.

OK 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.

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.

OK 4.3

Pros: While the airline is cheap, that's it. They charge for everything and are rather obtuse about it. It costs extra to select a seat, the airline seems to specialize in putting families with small children in the 'premium' seats which mean those of us who want a quiet trip instead get a screaming child behind, next to, and in front of us. Food is extra! They will give you water if you ask but otherwise, pay.

Cons: The luggage policy is opaque. We boarded in Honolulu, going to Sydney, and checked our bags at no cost in order to limit our carry-on to 7 kilos per their rules. The return flight was to follow the same plan but they told us it would be $160 AUD per piece at check-in! Granted, $160 AUD is only $115 USD but that's OUTRAGEOUS. They looked at the luggage and said we could carry it on! Who makes these rules?! The Aussies have it figured out but if you're an American with no prior experience BEWARE. The Aussies I spoke to refer to Jetstar with a much more derogatory term ending with star. Wonder why. If your goal is a comfortable flight to/around Australia, take another line. If you want cut-rate, cattle-class with a high risk of a screaming child in your ears (I was wearing noise-cancelling headphones), then choose Jetstar. For my purposes, Jetstar is no-star. I won't fly them again.

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.

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: Seats were comfortable and great collection of entertainment even tho had pay

Cons: Checking process in Denpasar was really bad. Had to wait almost 45 min at the counter even tho I had all the visa documents. Lack of knowledge of the ground staff of Jetstar. They need to get trained well.

OK 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.

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.
