Despite the line (of several hundred people), the staff appeared to have no urgency about moving customers through the check-in process, and at one point two of the the three workers quit working, packed up and left. Replacements arrived five minutes later and took another five to ten minutes to set-up before helping customers - leaving one agent for the overflowing line. Total wait time for check-in alone was over 1 hour."

No phone number in directory, no phones at airport. and in an emergency no way of contact and no one willing to do anything to assist. Food better but still too much rice.

Upon waiting for over 12 hours and a number of phone calls to both delta and virgin I was advised that my luggage hasn't even left Sydney and they are not sure when they can deliver it. I have now missed an important work meeting that I came over for and have been in the same clothes for 48 hours Without my clothes and my critical blood pressure medication. I am frustrated/disappointed/furious would be an understatement. I have travelled with a number of other airlines, but this was by far the worst experience"

Pros: "Very good everything"
Pros: "Had to change planes in Sydney where they tried to charge $80 per bag for extra bags that Melbourne agent had checked in for free."
Cons: "Worst airlines--except for Tigerair. Pay more upfront with Virgin Australia or Quantas. Jetstar will empty your pocketbook with charging for every little extra--no carry on baggage over 7 kilos--if over prepare for up to $80 charge. They claim these charges are for safety and have convinced their employees of this nonsense. Sydney airport has some of the worst wifi in the world."

Cons: "No info when we purchased the ticket on Kayak that this airline does not charge by the bag, but by the kilo. No chance to buy kilos when we bought the ticket. Got ripped off at the airport. This airline is is for backpackers, NOT for the international traveler"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Pros: "All was good from boarding to exiting"
Pros: "They made room for me on the next flight"
Cons: "Everything - they texted me telling me that the flight was delayed, and then I arrived at the gate and told me it left an hour earlier. I have text messages to prove that it was scheduled at 1:30pm, the plane left at 12:35pm and I had already checked in, checking in my suitacase, and the flight left without me and took my suitcase - absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Plane ride smooth and the service for every part of trip was great. This exceeded my expectations."

Pros: "Horrible airline. Can't understand the reservation people. Misleading on what you are paying for. Worst airline I've ever seen. Fly Virgin, which is much better."

Pros: "Nothing. Had to to purchase a mother ticket. Details below."
Cons: "In my line of business being a CEO for an Inc 500 company, I know that my clients / customers make accidental mistakes (accidents) when ordering items. It's what you do with those mistakes will turn someone into a brand loyaltist or someone that will write a negative review such as this. 100% booking failure on my part. Fully admit it to. I had the right time, location and day of week. What was incorrect was the week of travel. I accidentally booked the following week instead of this week. Whoops. Mistakes happen. Immediately called airline ad notified of mistake. 40 minutes later they wanted to charge me $700+ in change fairs turning me into a person that leaves negative reviews as this is my first one in all of my time. I don't usually have time to do this because I am a CEO and constantly flying, educating, handling clients, personnel, etc that I feel I should be treated the Same way as I treat my customer. From an explatorory trip to Sydney and then Sunshine Coast to determine the next location of my company, i do know for fact that I will be flying quantis or Virgin if problem is not corrected. tim"
Pros: "Courteous staff, smooth boarding. Enjoyable flight."
Cons: "We left 20 minutes late due to the late arrival of the plane from a previous destination. Our row (11) seats did not recline, I guess due to the Exit row behind us."
Pros: "It was good. Nothing extra. It was efficient. We arrived safely on time."
Cons: "Seats were extremeley uncomfortable, crew was rude and spoke down to the customers and even yelled at them!"
Pros: "JetStar is an ala carte airline. So don't expect extras. That said, they are very capable, speedy and cost effective."
Pros: "The crew was efficient"
Cons: "I wasn't aware JetStar operated on a "budget" airline level worse than that of a second world country airline. Were there alcohol, movies, terrible food, bottled water, and pillows available? Yes. Did JetStar take every opportunity to charge customers for any and all services? Yes. Perhaps I should have rearranged my expectations, knowing that this was a "budget" line, but their fees for additional services were worse than AirAsia."
Pros: "Very friendly check in and welcoming staff"
Cons: "All food and drink had to be purchased"
Cons: "Check-in crew tried to earn money, tried to rip off. Didn't allow even 1kg extra on cabin bag. Just trying to make $50 for check-in bag by any means possible.

Cons: "i was offered a refund, but I'm still waiting for this to be confirmed."
Pros: "Was onetime and landed early."
Pros: "Planes are new and nice!"

Cons: "I wasn't allowed on board with my just purchased coffee."
