If we left on time this would not have happened. Wort 12 hours of my life ever spent in an airport/plane. WILL NEVER FLY JETSTAR EVER AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "Crew inside was nice"
Cons: "Weighing carry-on... people just took things and put them in pockets or wore them... so i find it useless and a waste of time and people’s satisfaction. Seats were extremely crammed and people behind kept kneeing my lower back."

Pros: "They got me were I was going, just as it says on the tin."

Pros: "Good smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed getting away"
Pros: "The crew were great. Very clear on the p.a. System and good service."
Cons: "The seats were narrow and horribly cramped. No shaping to support your back and the tray table crushed my stomach and I am quite slim. Goodness knows how big people cope. We recently did a round The world trip with 11 flights and none were as bad as this."

Pros: "It was generally a pretty good flight. Timing was ok"
Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped."
Cons: "Crew attitude"

Pros: "Great crew, efficient opperation. Exactly what I expected: no frills affordable flight for my holiday."
Cons: "The seats are fine for short haul but would be rough for a long flight"
Cons: "Didn’t know it was $100 to check a bag. And you have to pay for water even on a 5 hour flight. That’s absurd."

Cons: "No vegan food options, No adjustable head rest, No entertainment, Will not choose to fly with them again."
Cons: "My outlet didn’t work on my seat so when I got into Balli my phone was dead which cause a lot of hassle with trying to find my ride figured out. I asked an associate if I could move and they said no. I also was charged $100 for baggage when it weighed so little because my payment didn’t go through online which I didn’t realize till I got to the airport. I chose jet star as a cheaper option but ended up paying way more."
Pros: "Ummm...ummm...the flight attendances had nice, orange jackets? I'm grasping at straws here..."
Cons: "Many, many things, starting with their ridiculous practice of weighing luggage and charging accordingly. I'm used to airlines charging for checked luggage, that's no problem, but to only allow 7 kg of weight on checked bags is basically forcing everyone to just check their luggage. I figured my bag, which could easily fit in their tight bins, would be fine for carry on. I was wrong. Then, because i didn't realize their ludicrous system, I had to pay more than double because 'the flight has already opened for checking in'. This airline is laughable. They might start out the 'least expensive' option but by the time you're done with them nickel and diming you it's better to just book the more expensive flight with a legitimate airline. Oh, and did I mention that I paid for seats up front (again, another tactic for milking you dry) and I was so crammed that I couldn't move my legs? This airline is pathetic. I learned my lesson and will never fly Jetstar"
Pros: "Very smooth flight and the best landing ever! did not feel or know we had touched down."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable Baggage rules - I overpaid for baggage in advance Carry on weight should be reconsidered (limit should increase)"
Pros: "Price was reasonable; had to pay for upgraded baggage weight."
Cons: "They charge you for seat assignment, bags, food, drinks, etc."
Pros: "Smooth flying and arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "I knew I was going to check a bag. Jetstar sent me a text instructing me to check in, which I did. No info about baggage with the check in. Got to the airport and they charged me almost $100 for luggage. If I had prepaid it would have been $30. Staff at checking counter were rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "Jetstar is a budget carrier so I do not begrudge the additional costs for food, baggage, etc. I do, however, continue to be disappointed with their poor customer service. The service desk had a long line, 4 service representatives ad only one representative service customers."
Pros: "Steward tried to make most of bad thing Flight left late"
Cons: "Flight left late Was Bali flight filled up with domestic passengers Crew not allowed to accept legal tender Seat broken, footrest permanently out partially Leg room compromised by things on floor Magazines and safety card dirty and pages stuck together Business not really business In Melbourne Long queues to get out. Line up for id. Line up again to surrender boarding pass. No special lines for business in Melbourne Took an hour and a half to get out of airport."
Pros: "Sleep well"
Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, happy fellow passengers and crew. Boarding though front and back of plane and no last-minute plea for bags to be checked meant boarding was fast. . Also, there was no in flight entertainment, so disregard the stars on that."
Cons: "Did not expect the air fare quoted did not include a bag. We paid a primium for our bags on the day of the flight. Pay close attention and add the bag when you buy the ticket, or travel light. There is only food for purchase, but we did get water for free."
Pros: "Flight crew polite and helpful considering it was a full flight"
Cons: "Random carry on checks penalising customers, especially embarrassing for Asian customers pulled aside and penalised in front of others for overweight hand baggage. Apparently no consideration for cultural respect and saving face. I felt very badly for the lady affected. Hand luggage checks should apply to all or nobody - random checks are nothing but a price gouge. If you're going to do it, at least give a voucher of some sort or some kind of incentive to choose jeststar again. Extremely poorly thought out procedure."
Pros: "One woman tried to help me after she recognized me asking for help from 75 minutes ago. But I will NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "I had no idea this was a budget airlines when I booked and I tried to check in on line and couldn't and then had major issues with luggage being overweight. The staff helping me wasn't helpful and at times rude making sure that my weight limit didn't exceed 7 kilos"
Cons: "The staff and bag weigh system preflight. Passengers were all shaking their heads and made the mood of flight terrible. I hope your brand dies!"
Pros: "Swift check in and boarding and exit."
Cons: "Terrible seating. I'm 6ft 1 and I felt cramped and couldn't get comfortable. I was constantly kicking the person in front of me in the back and under the seat."
Pros: "Jack at the customer service desk dealt with my problem in the perfect professional manner. He didn't stop until he found a solution for me. I was very impressed with this airline"
Cons: "As I stated previously this company's complete lack of concern for customer service is appalling. I have directed my managers and staff to ensure that this company is no longer engaged to supply transportation to any of my companies"
