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.

Pros: Movies... At least they provided headphones.... For a lack of everything else provided...

Cons: I was extremely disappointed not to have a blanket provided without charge, or a small meal or even a tea beverage without a costly purchase! I paid for a flight from Australia to Honolulu, a minimum of almost 10 hours, and no meal, no beverages, no blanket for an overnight flight without a costly additional purchase. I have tellethto health issues as it is, nevermind no half warm sleep or supplementary beverages or meal. I felt very used and taken advantage of.

Okay 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: The flight was half empty

Cons: The crew was incompetent and left me questioning their knowledge of safety protocols. Food was terrible especially for having to pay for it on a 9 hour flight.

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: The crew was very friendly, the plane was very clean, and we got a free upgrade to accommodate a family. Our upgraded seats were spacious and very comfortable! I also loved the food and free rum punch!

Cons: The free games on my entertainment system never worked, which was pretty disappointing. When I pushed “play game” it acted like it was thinking and then went back to the same screen as before.

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 5.2

Pros: When we finally checked-in a very nice woman staff member said she would take our handicapped friend to the gate when she finished checking in passengers. We arrived early in Honolulu.

Cons: Boarding was very long and there were no wheelchairs or anyone to help our handicapped friend. Your luggage policy is so complicated and the weirdest!! You have to look it up on internet to get the rates. How can you know months ahead how much your luggage will weigh! The luggage and meal options and rates should be on the page when you book your flight. Payed for my meal but I had to ask for it.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: This was the worst airline out of 7 that I used in last 2 months outside the US!! The worst by far anywhere!

Cons: Overcharged for One checked bag at 22 kg, $286.00 Dispicable to say the least and then charging for everything and anything jetstar could get away with. Truly the baggage Scam, nickel and dime mafia!!!

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.
