Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "The crew is beautifull"
Cons: "The time schedule"

Cons: "Easy to book and check in"

Pros: "Small flight"

Pros: "It’s okay"

Pros: "Efficient on time"
Cons: "One young cabin crew member was very polite and welcoming - ? Angela The other older woman would not even acknowledge me or say hello / goodbye despite me saying hello"

Pros: "I luved the attendants and the service"
Cons: "THE AIRPORT IS NOT IN MELBOURNE! We had to hire an Uber for 100 dollars to drive us the hour to Melbourne. It should be clearer when booking this airport is significantly farther away. It would have been more convenient and economical to fly into melbournes international airport."

Pros: "On time. Safe and smooth."

Pros: "Long flight but staff attentive"
Cons: "Baggage at Sydney was extremely slow coming almost an hour !"

Pros: "Quick check-in"
Cons: "The whole terminal is budget. Hardly any seating once you go through to the gates and its a 7-minute walk back to the food court. Nowhere to charge phones. Nothing complimentary on the flight so if Virgin or Qantas are around $20-30 more, do it!"

Pros: "Attention to details"
Cons: "Lack of snacks"

Pros: "no concerns - had a seat free next to me which made it a pretty perfect flight"

Pros: "Good service and nice people"
Cons: "Nothing everything was good"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The rear of the plane was filled with screaming babies, loud uncontrolled children kicking the seats in front of them (mine). Equally loud mothers baby-talked continuously to their offending offspring with no effect. Cabin staff made no attempt to control the noise levels. I recognize some of these small children could have been suffering ear pain from the cabin pressure changes but trained cabin staff could have offered remedies for this. It does not explain the continuous screaming at cruising altitude. I recognize that JETSTAR is an intentionally cheap and nasty airline. I reluctantly took this flight because there was no quality service (like QANTAS) at the time I required. I accept the lack of amenities offered by REAL airlines like complimentary food, drink, entertainment and healthy legroom are the cost of cheap travel but I would have happily paid a higher price for QANTAS had there been a flight. I will not fly JETSTAR again and if no alternative exists with QANTAS, I will choose another airline in spite of my long allegiance to QANTAS CC: QANTAS"

Pros: "the actual flight was fine"
Cons: "When I looked up the flight option through your site I selected one checked bag per person and it showed the price and I decided to purchase. Then when I tried to check in at Jetstar online it showed I had no checked bags WHY?! then I complained about it in an online chat and the chat agent would not agree and said I had to pay for checked bags if I had any and said he/she could do that and asked how much the bags weighed. Since I did not know and could not answer how much the weighed I decided to check them online myself since it gave me options for weight/price I knew our bags would be under - the chat ended and I proceeded to try to pay for one bag each online. However, after more than a half dozen attempts which were all rejected I had to close the online check in and leave as we were running short on time to get things done and get to the airport. At the airport I told all this to the agent at bag check and she would do noting but charged me about $240 for the two bags - grossly more than the $28 for one and $38 for the other that I was trying to pay online & roughly as much as the cost of the flights! Will you please let me know what can be done to get my money back as this is just not right?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight change fee within 24h of booking would have been $120 for a $49 flight. Carry-on was 9kg instead of 7kg - $60 extra fee. Never again."

Pros: "No mess airline, fast and efficient"

Pros: "Avalon is quiet, decent facilities"
Cons: "Should give water on the flight. Didn’t buy food didn’t use entertainment"

Cons: "It was good flight"

Cons: "Rude ground staff."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything....no food, no entertainment"

Cons: "Unexpected fees"

Pros: "I wasn’t able to select a seat and was assigned a middle seat, but the service desk agent at ADL moved me to an aisle seat without charge. Food was reasonable value and tasty, if cold (who refrigerates a muffin?!)"
Cons: "Usual Jetstar pain having to call to add extra luggage (qantas booking) and then curiously Jetstar telling me to ring qantas for an updated itinerary"

Cons: "They lost half of our pushchair and it took 5 days of endless phone calls for them to agree to replace it"
