Cons: This companies business model is high friction. I ended up with two tickets for my daughter on the same flights as one of their affiliates had problems with their website so it told me I wasn’t successful booking when i later found out the message was wrong. In the interim i booked the small flights on Tiger. I called both companies 4 times got the usual Asian call center responses and finally someone had the guts to tell me they would do nothing about it. Just insane and that’s what you will be if you ignore my advice. My daughter ended up with two flights she could never use and they would not do a single thing to help apart from go through their call center script to keep their jobs. You have been warned. Kayak should never refer people to gotogate.com. They offer similar customer service and would also do nothing.

They also had the nerve to charge me for seat selection even though I had already paid for it on the flight they cancelled. Easily, Jetstar is Australia's worst airline. They think that sending a text message two hours before boarding that my flight is cancelled is enough. The rest is up to me. Wow.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Everything - no crew or pilots so delayed. Then engineers on the plane so delayed. No in flight entertainment as broken - plane appeared to be from the 90s as no way to charge devices. Over 2 hours late and the plane was so old we felt like we were going to break up on landing. Terrible experience

Cons: We came from a week of 45° heat to air conditioning with misting capability, very impressive, loved it. But l got very cold, my own fault didn't a ask for a blanket quick enough.

Excellent 9.6

Pros: The braised beef dinner was excellent, the crew were really helpful and the entertainment good. Arrived early as well.Qantas seems to have great pilots as very little in the way of bumpiness on landing. So well done guys.

Cons: Nothing much. I have long legs so it's hard to get comfortable enough to sleep.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Almost everything.

Cons: Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that.

Mediocre 3.0

Cons: Arbitrary singling out of passengers for baggage weight violations when majority of carry-on bags weren't to regulation for most passengers. Exorbitant fees for checking bags at gate.

OK 4.0

Pros: Seating was tight. Very thin seats.. Little padding

Cons: Their online baggage fees could not be purchased with either my Mastercard or Visa. Had to resort to Paypal for baggage payment. Flight was also over an hour late departing from Cairns. Crew said that was due to an ;onboard medical emergency' on the inbound flight.

MEL
OK 4.0

Pros: The flight arrived in Sydney on time, and the cabin crew was friendly and professional.

Cons: The check-in procedure, weighing carry-on bags, and the a la carte charges for luggage weight, seat selection, drinks, etc. It is not a good experience and with a 7kg weight limit for carry on items, it is definitely not catered toward business travelers. Would pay more to fly with another airline.

OK 4.8

Cons: I learned that JetStar was the cheapest option for a reason. Check-in at Narita was a nightmare. Without any luggage to check it was over 1.5 hour wait just to check in.

OK 5.3

Pros: When we finally worked out where we were suposed to go the staff were very nice. Good diversity of people although nearly all very young.

Cons: long queues again for checking in and baggage check. No signage for bus to domestic air terminal or even a general direction. Just have to keep asking randome people in flouro jackets where we should go. Then bus very crowded.

OK 4.6

Cons: Flight was cancelled and next available was nearly 4hrs later and left late! And then they have the gall to tell you to board quickly. Emails all about trying to frighten you into paying for extra luggage and sell you mediocre food and pay for a seat allocation.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Modern aircraft

Cons: Flight was delayed for no reason at all. Rude staff. Forced a domestic flight to land/take off at an international terminal so we had to go through customs control before taking off and after arrival. Pay some more money and fly Qantas or anything but awful Jetstar...

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.
