Okay 5.6

Pros: This no-frills airline gets you to and from Australia fairly cheaply, although when you start adding in all the extras, it may not be as cheap as first thought.

Cons: We attempted to add a meal online and were thwarted at every turn. It took a call and talking to a real person to resolve our issue. Plus, the in-flight service is so minimal; one person in our party tried to get a glass of water, and never received one. It seems a little parsimonious to charge for things like coffee and tea, especially on such a long flight between the US and Australia.

Pros: the flight left on time which is always a boon, and the crew were efficient, altho i got the sense that they had done it all many times before, and they were only going thru the motions. the flight was incredibly full, so little room to move around, and leg room is a definite challenge! the bathrooms were good, they didn't smell like most airlines do! Food was generous in portion size, and there were yummy snacks also.

Cons: the aisles in the plane were very narrow, so getting up to go to the bathroon with everyone else became a challenge! apart from the narrow aisles and the lack of leg room it was a good flight.

Pros: The plane is nice

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

Pros: My son and I had previously taken Jetstar from Bangkok to Melbourne (out of desperation; our Thai visa was expiring), so we already knew about a) no complementary food or beverages (you get one glass of water if you ask, then are pointed to the back of the plane and the tap) b) having to pay to watch movies c) no email confirmation of flight d) uncomfortable seats What we did not know but learned on our next JetStar flight (Melbourne to Honolulu), a week later: -again, no email confirmation, and as we were out of continent, we had no personal cellphone usage so no text to tell us the flight would be leaving 3.5 hours late (other customers were getting conflicting texts) .. -we were charged a criminal $160\each extra for our backpacks at checkout!! They said it was weight, and that our packs were too large for carry-on. (Frankly, upon reading all the other comments here, I am beginning to think this is a scam, and they need to be called on it.) As we paid an extra $320, plus the airline was late, I asked if we might at least get a $10 meal voucher. Answer? No. The airline has to be 4 hours late. -asked for a pillow and blanket for the approximately 10-hr night flight. Answer: "No pillows, and you had to book a blanket in advance." I am outraged.

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.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: We were pleasantly surprised by the legroom for the regular economy seats. We usually opt extra legroom because my husband is 6'4" but he was very comfortable on this flight. We fly often and on many different airlines, but Virgin always stands out for exceptional service, modern and clean planes (continuously attended to throughout the flight), better meals, friendly staff, extensive entertainment options...definitely one of the best overhaul international flights we've had.

Cons: The check-in procedure at Sydney Airport was a bit of a nightmare. Even the people who had checked in online had to wait in line (for 30 minutes-1 hour) to get boarding pass and check bags. We had carry-on bags only and still had to do this. I understand they need to recheck everyone's documents since the flight was headed to the US, but the available counters and process for moving customers along was very slow. Other than that, we had an excellent 5* star experience.

Cons: Hidden fees for baggage are exceptionally high and are structured to take advantage of first-time users who are not aware of Jetstar's baggage policies. They burned my wife and I for $695 on checked bag fees on our golf clubs. This after they were "nice enough" to round the weight down a bit. Even in $AUS, that is a nasty surprise at the airport. The only way I would fly Jetstar again is for a short-haul, no-checked-baggage flight.

Mediocre 2.0

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.

Cons: I have never been on an overseas flight before that you had to pay for everything once on board, even water. And if you didn't pre-order on line, you were passed over by the crew and ignored.

Okay 4.4

Cons: Check in time took over 1.5 hours - only eight windows to check in 3 flights simultaneous. Once at the gate, I and other passengers were taken to the back to be searched for potential explosive. Further delay was announced. Would NOT fly again with Jetstar!

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.

Excellent 8.3

Pros: The actual flight on Virgin Australia was great! The comfort level for economy was especially surprising and very nice.

Cons: The transfer in between flights was very hectic and they couldn't find my ticket on my Delta transfer. This happened because they e-mailed the week before trying to change my itinerary but then clearly didn't let Delta know so there was definitely confusion and I missed my original transfer. That aspect was frustrating, but the flight itself was LOVELY.

LAX
Mediocre 3.6

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.

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.
