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.

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.

Excellent 8.6

Pros: The price. It is a budget airline and you pay for everything...EVERYTHING. The food is great, but you have to pay for it. The entertainment options were very good and it was a cheap $9 for my flights between Sydney and Honolulu.

Cons: I have now flown to Sydney twice from Honolulu for a total of four flights. Each flight had at least one bathroom that was out of service. The website doesn't work very well and didn't always present all of the options to me. For example, I wanted to purchase a meal but the website only allowed me to purchase a generic voucher instead of a meal. Once the website was working, I called customer service and they wouldn't refund me the voucher so I could pre-purchase the meal or apply the voucher towards the meal.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Very long lineups to check in. We arrived more than three hours ahead and were told to come back exactly three hours to check in. When we did, we waited for one hour for our turn. 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: Food is always the best. I had the butter chicken for dinner. It was very delicious.

Cons: I think this was just a personal issue for me only, but I would say the atmosphere. I felt the plane was humid and often at times, I found it hard to breathe. On one occasion, a flight attendant attempted to take my food away without asking if I was finished or not. I was annoyed by their lack of manners. I also didn't like having two blankets. There was no room under the seat in front of me, to put it anywhere. It significantly reduced my comfort. The passengers sitting next to me also had no respect when they asked me to step aside and was rude in general. It made my mood worse throughout the flight but I hanged in there. It was okay.

Pros: We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them.

Cons: Virgin Australia staff were extremely unhelpful when I called from Sydney (20+hrs before landing in LAX) to find alternative flight to JFK due to snow. Their inability to rectify the situation on the spot resulted in all outbound flights to LA being full by the time I landed in LAX and a subsequent 3-day stay in LA… hence missing my wedding anniversary. Thankfully my husband purchased the first available ticket at US$1,000 and was able to get me back to NYC in time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I am extremely disappointed that Virgin Australia did not amend the flight when I first called - staff in LA further reinforced that Syd ground staff should have been more helpful. On top of all of this I had to pay US$120 for excess baggage due to 20kg restrictions - what international flight only allows 20kg. All in all this has been an extremely disappointing experience and I will not be flying virgin for any further international trips.

LAX
Good 6.0

Cons: We arrived 3_ hours early to check in for a 12-22 flight but had to stand in line much longer than necessary because passengers who arrived late for flights that were departing were checked in before we were. We understand that the airline is trying to check in passengers for departing flights so they can leave on time but they need a better system to avoid penalizing passengers who follow the rules. Our flight was delayed 90 minutes, causing us to potentially miss our connection in LA. We were not provided any information in flight or immediately upon getting off the flight to calm our worries about missing the connecting flight. So we stood in customs and immigration lines hoping to make it. Only after we collected our luggage, were we told that we had been rebooked on another flight from LA to DC (our final destination). We could have been given that information in flight or at least when we got off the plane to avoid being stressed in customs and immigration. The airline needs a much better way to handle delays for passengers who are going to miss connecting flights.

Excellent 9.0

Pros: First I was very happy that the flight to Melbourne was direct, no intermediate city. On that flight Honolulu boarding was by rows from the rear of the plane, which meant the plane boarded the full flight rapidly. The serpentine approach and using both front and rear entry sped up boarding Melbourne to Sydney. The fare was outstanding--I was aware during booking that I would need to add on for baggage, seats, food, entertainment. Jetstar advertises itself as a lowcost airline. I thought I got good value for money. I see most complaints are coming from domestic Australian passengers.

Cons: Seats in coach are 9 across in a Boeing 787, just a wee bit cramped sideways although legroom was not a problem. I do agree that coffee and tea should not be charged for--AUD 4 which is $3. The other problem is one at Sydney where AUD 6 is charged for a five minute bus to the international terminal, Jetstar should make this free.

Plus, the in-flight service is so minimal; one person in our party tried to get a glass of water, and never received one.

Pros: Nothing!

Cons: I was booked on flight QF 74 from San Francisco, connecting in Sydney (3 hour connection) to Queenstown, New Zealand. When I went to check in I was told that I needed a transit visa for Australia because of my Indian Passport. When I booked the flight back in September, it was not a requirement to have a transit Visa. I was told by the Qantas supervisor that this was a new requirement as of October for Indian and Chinese passport holders even with brief connections. 9 people were in a similar situation the day before and denied boarding. I understand that things change, but I am very disappointed in the service provided to me. Of course, they could not help me get an evisa for Australia, but they were not even willing to help me search for it rebook a Qantas flight connecting in a different city/country. They did not even connect me with online reservations directly to quickly do something to be able to continue on my journey. They only gave me a phone number to call and sent me away. I tried the number and was on hold for almost an hour. Luckily, my friends were on a different flight on Air New Zealand that had seats leaving in 2 hours, and I almost missed that waiting to talk to someone from Qantas. I booked a ticket with Air New Zealand (by talking to their checkin agent, who was able to connect me directly with a reservations agent via a direct line, which was something I was hoping Qantas would help me with at a bare minimum) and I was able to purchase a ticket for that Air NZ flight and continue on. I’m VERY disappointed in the way that I was treated and not provided with assistance in a timely manner. I would have almost missed that flight and have to miss out on pre-arranged travel plans losing out on an additional $2000 in tour / accommodation bookings.

Okay 5.6

Pros: Clean, roomy and peaceful flight

Cons: Not being 20min late and having NO ground announcement about the delay and impact on connecting flights. When I suggest to a staff member that perhaps they should keep customers informed, they said they couldn’t because they didn’t know. They helpfully suggested I google for information! Seriously!

Good 6.3

Pros: My experience boarding was a bit of a disaster as the boards at the airport stated an incorrect gate and reported an hour delay which was not correct. I ended up having to sprint to make the flight in a different wing an hour before I thought it was leaving. I barely made it onboard. I think this is an issue with the airport, not the airline but this is the only forum I have to state this. My experience with the crew was amazing. Very welcoming and hospitable. My experience with the airport staff was the opposite. Very unhelpful and cold. The flight went fairly smoothly, but, as is the case with most American airlines these days, the seats are uncomfortable and cramped. The inflight meal was good (for airline food) and very much appreciated on the 6 hour flight. Overall, this was a pretty typical American flying experience. Unfortunately, I was returning from flying with Asian and Australian airlines which were much more comfortable and customer-focused, so my experience on Hawaiian seemed subpar.

Pros: Crew was nice and served drinks several time instead of just once.

Cons: The flight delayed taking off by half an hour and cut my transfer to connecting flight to SF as much. I had only an hour to get through custom and claim luggage to checkin again. But connecting flight terminal was a different one. Hawaiian should provide an agent to direct us to get to the gate.

Pros: The plane got me to my destinations

Cons: Although I was asked if I wanted to purchase a meal upon booking, it wasn't clear that everything onboard (including water) was for purchase. Beverage service was also confusing because some flight attendants gave glasses of water for free after meal/beverage service while some did not. I'll just bring everything I need to eat or drink if I don't purchase it in advance.

Pros: The plane is nice

Cons: The stewards are awful. The food is awful and expensive. They offer no fruit or veg. It's a terrible rip off. $4 for drop coffee. They don't provide water readily even on a 10 hour flight. They also charge $20/kilo if you go over weight on your luggage. I asked to call the office to pay over the phone. They grabbed $200 and said "too late". AWFUL AND NOT WORTH THE PRICE.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Flight cancelled because internet went down on site. However, Virgin Australia and Qantas airlines were able to paper book their passengers and fly to destination. Jet star couldn’t do the same. Even though the internet came back up Jetstar couldn’t complete the passenger flight check in. The Airport staff stated the internet was a risk and instead put 200 people on buses and drove us 5 hours across a 42C desert. Somehow driving across the desert was safer. The icing on the cake was the Internet stayed up for the next hour prior to our bus ride and within the flight crews crew day. So, we could all have flown home with the Jetstar flight crew who actually flew back to Sydney. Yes missed the fireworks and expensive hotel stay on New Years Eve. Finally, Jetstar rebooked is on a flight to Adelaide then to Sydney so we wouldn’t arrive until 945pm. I certainly didn’t appreciate my direct 3 hour flight being turned into a 5 hour bus ride then a 7 hour flight. Oh, please tell them thanks for the piece of cheese and two crackers, apple and apple juice for dinner. What could be done better.....eliminate Jetstar from your list of service providers.

Okay 5.6

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I was unable to check in online and arrived in Melbourne 3 hours in advance of my flight. I had to stand in line for over an hour just to check in for my flight. It was a complete mess at the check in desk. There were several issues with other passengers that caused two gate agents to be tied up for upper 30 minutes. Rather than taking them to customer service they continued to block the line. Then with Economy gates being down to only 3 (with my guess at over 100 people waiting to check in) one of the agents used the economy line to service business class pasangers, when there were already 3 agents serving the business class patrons. While I understand business entitles you to special priorities but to have your economy passengers (who are all paying over $1500 a ticket) to have to wait so long for business passages to all walk straight get up can waiting 5 minutes felt very wrong and made many people upset. My family was waiting to see me off and subsequently got charges $30 in parking due to the delay in check in. Also communication at the gate was very poor. Flight was delayed several times due to wind and no announcement came from ground staff, only way I knew was due to an email. I could tell a lot of guests were very distressed. Very disappointed from a company that prides itself on service.

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.
