Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."

Cons: "As an incoming traveller and a Platinum Qantas member, I was refused access to the Qantas Lounge on arrival in Townsville. All I wanted to do was spend fifteen minutes reviewing my diary and directions for the visits planned here. This is the Irish version of hospitality. God bless his departure."

Pros: "Flight was delayed simply due to the poor positioning of the auxiliary power unit that is an acceptable reason for delay which shows absolutely poor operational management of the local airport operations"

Pros: "IFE for such a short flight, headset free. Cabin crew were quite pleasant. B737-800 series (Next Gen.) is a nice plane."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Seat material (leather) and cushion was comfortable."
Cons: "No leg room, my knees were pressed into the back of the seat in front, which became very painful. No wriggle room without disturbing person alongside. A ridiculous "snack". What happened to biscuits and cheese? Not trendy any longer i presume. Even Qantas serve that! No wine. Again, ridiculous. Condescending stewards, if that's what you are supposed to call them these "woke" days."

Pros: "They charged me so much for extra luggage even I prepaid online for extra luggage prior to getting to airport. Yet the ticket counter lady made me pay an additional fee and all together I ended paying more for extra bags fee than the ticket itself! both Virgin and JetStar are VERY stingy on extra luggage fees. I came from the US to Australia and traveled domestically while there with all the luggage that I brought from the US. So I had to pay so much in fees when my trip was already so expensive! It makes me reconsider wanting to travel again anywhere anytime soon, so discouraging! Also they make me take stuff out of my big suitcase and transfer to my carry on, in front of everyone at the ticket counter I had to open my suitcase and transfer some stuff so the weight is under a certain weight. Still they charged me for extra luggage. I came international on Qantas from USA to Australia, so all the domestic locations I went to I was charged"

Cons: "Plane trip was great , baggage pick up very slow. No entertainment on trip Melb to Cairns so can't comment."

Cons: "An attendant working in the check-in was very rude. I was unable to check in using the kiosk so I requested assistance from an attendant near the kiosks.The attendant refused to assist me and told me to wait until the other attendant was free. That attendant then helped the white man next to me."

Pros: "Comfy for a cheap flight."

Pros: "Virgin Australia crew members have been extremely courteous in my recent flights with them."

Pros: "Nice crew and fast and smooth flight"
Cons: "Didn't go much on the snack food!"

Pros: "Very friendly"

Pros: "Check in was easy and I could not have asked for a better crew who were pleasant and helpful . Each and every flight in Australia on Virgin Australia has been made so easy for me with the help I have received from the crew with my husband who has mobility problems . seats very comfortable"
Cons: "There is no negative with this airline from ground crew to air flight attendants"

Pros: "Overall comfort of both plane and staff"

Pros: "Had more then normal snacks."
Cons: "High numbered srat assignments board fron back of plane. This requires you to climb down & up stairs with carry-on bags. Would be good to mention when making reservation & seat assignments."

Cons: "There was an extremely long line at check-in with only a couple of Virgin Australia attendants working. Despite the line (of several hundred people), the staff appeared to have no urgency about moving customers through the check-in process, and at one point two of the the three workers quit working, packed up and left. Replacements arrived five minutes later and took another five to ten minutes to set-up before helping customers - leaving one agent for the overflowing line. Total wait time for check-in alone was over 1 hour."

Pros: "Very helpful"
Cons: "Pleasant"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "All food had to be purchased and there was no wifi"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "As it is alliance with Singapore Airlines for international connecting but didn't felt any reasonable reason for not serving snacks."

Pros: "Check in staff most helpful,traveling with oversize lougage,surf board and kites along with carry on.no fuss and searched seating so l had a spear seat on red trip home.thanks"

Pros: "Great crew and good service."
Cons: "Two things - I dont like is the size of the seats. They are far too small. Most people are relatively big these days and when you sit next to a large person or between two large people the whole flight is so uncomfortable. The other thing is the air vents - no where near enough air coming through those - please fix :("

Pros: "It was an enjoyable flight and we were well looked after by the staff"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I was put on another flight 1 hour 20min later, this meant having to rush. I bought the tickets based on time, and did not expect to have to run"

Pros: "New clean plane and great service. This flight was far more comfortable than previous flights over this long distance."

Pros: "Glad I wasnt conecting internationally..Plane problems..Other airlines might have offerred some compensation for 2.5 hrs late.."
Cons: "Otherwise fine"

Pros: "Flight crew were great."
Cons: "Got told to "sit back down and don't worry" when our first flight was delayed, after I asked the lady at the gate that we may miss our connecting flight. She put other customers on different flights to make their connections, but when I approached was denied, and ensured we would make out next flight. Missed the next flight and had to wait another 3.5 hours for the next flight, even after explaining the situation to a gentleman at the customer service desk, he said he could not help us, and gave my partner and i am $8 food voucher while we waited as a 'sorry'. Then on the way home another 30 min delay. horrible first experience flying, Was very disappointed in the customer service & missed my brothers wedding. I should have booked Qantas instead of Virgin."

Pros: "Everyone was super helpful and friendly."

Cons: "Wasn't happy that my suitcase was broken for such a short flight from Brisbane to Cairns"

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Small seats, which did not recline at all, to the great discomfort of several passengers in our area, including us. With particular physical limitations due to old wounds, i have to say it was painful and unexpectedly difficult for the nearly 3 hours of incarceration. Partly this was exacerbated by the lump of head rest not moving high enough away from my shoulders. My travel companion has a head rest which was also wrecked, come away from its frame and unable to be sorted properly. In all, a poor set up for a flight."

Pros: "The egg and lettuce sandwich was fresh and delicious! A bigger serving would have been nice. The Cadbury biscuit chocolate was also a perfect match with a coffee."
Cons: "The inflight entrainment could have been more extensive. For example the big fat Greek wedding advertised in the inflight magazine wasn't available as a selection."

Pros: "On time & comfortable, with reasonable food."
Cons: "Service from flight attendants wasn't as friendly as usual."

Pros: "good to include a free snack"
Cons: "Three of our party are coeliac and no gluten free option was available and the only choice we were offered was to purchase the gluten free cookie - which we declined. The picture in the back of the menu of the free snacks included a gluten free option so we were a bit annoyed that this wasn't available."

Pros: "The crew were not particularly friendly. They were somewhat abrupt."
Cons: "The crew’s attitude to passengers and manner of communication. The flight was delayed by about 20 to 25 minutes but there were no announcements about it or apologies for the inconvenience."

Cons: "No leg room."

Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "Nothing special. Just ok. Crew friendly."
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour. Seats pretty well worn. Hard on the derrière."

Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":)"

Cons: "They wouldnt let me board because they said I was 5 min late, yet I was 30 min before the flight. The internal Brisbane airport shuttle had a problem. They should have let me board because this was the airport’s fault. They charged me 75 extra dollars too. Very lame"

Cons: "No complaints at all."

Cons: "Why are their flights always delayed?"

Pros: "Crew wasn’t that polite."
Cons: "Anything extra"

Cons: "We were delayed for 2 hours and 20 minutes flew into a storm, circulated in circles in the air for 30 mins, landed and had to wait for 3 HOURS inside the play due to lightning. 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: "Nothing, would not fly with jetstar again"

Cons: "Lack of common sense by passengers with which door they should be using when boarding the flight. Crew may want to emphasis their directions more."

Pros: "great flight - fast and easy."
Cons: "it's jetstar so seats aren't the most comfy, but for a few hours, it's just fine."

Pros: "They got me were I was going, just as it says on the tin."
Cons: "Don't know what hours they work, but the crew were clearly fatigued and couldn't be bothered. They were still polite but really just could not be a***d! Flight delayed by 20 mins and no explanation until airborne."

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: "Not customer friendly at all. Arrived after traffic delays at 7:26 told bluntly that the gate was shut. people before and after us were told the same and we were rebooked on flight at 2:40. Ask me again later when I’ve actually flown with Jetstar, although I’m not optimistic that it will be a great experience."

Cons: "Rude service"

Pros: "Staff was very polite it is just a shame that the airline don’t get the same standard of results the staff get."
Cons: "No vegan food options, No adjustable head rest, No entertainment, Will not choose to fly with them again."

Pros: "Very smooth flight and the best landing ever! did not feel or know we had touched down."

Cons: "The entire experience"

Cons: "Not confortable seats"

Pros: "Good seat and small load so could move around"
Cons: "No entertainment and charges for everything."

Pros: "Sleep well"

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: "Be careful. I booked a return flight from Narita. I was NOT prompted in any vidible way about luggage. As qantas FF and based upon ALL past experience i expected an allownace of 25 kgs to be included. I had NO luggage allwoance. I was charged apprx 400 AUD $ for a 22.8kg bag. I asked to redress thsi for the retrun trip and have since discovered that the details have NOT been updated despite paying! So now I need to call Jetstar and worknthrough the issue."
Cons: "I was not not noticeably propmoted about luggae allowances or onboard food ent and beverage costs which ultimately added 55% to the ticket cost, so a reasobale priced tocket ended up an expensive one."

Pros: "Nothing, because I didn't have had any food."
Cons: "Nothing, Because I didn't have had any food."

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment options."

Cons: "Hardly any staff, we had to load & check in our own bags. The mechanical baggage belt was initially not working so the lines of people waiting grew. There was no-one to explain what we had to do so we only printed our boarding passes, and didnt realise we had to ALSO print baggage labels, so we consequently lost our place in the queue. NOT HAPPY!"

Cons: "Children 12 and 10 booked online to fly to Melbourne for Easter. I rang the call centre to ensure they could travel together unaccompanied, as website was not clear. I was advised they could, and because I was concerned I asked this be noted on our booking so we wouldn't have any issues at the gate. I was reassured the children could travel and they made a note as requested. Turn up for our flight today and at the gate after saying goodbye to my children, they're stopped from entering the plane and I'm told they can't travel, despite the advice I received from the call centre and the note on our booking showing we were given this advice. We did everything right to make sure we could travel, just to be refused at the gate. Disgusting."

Cons: "Beware, they charge $15 per kilogram for over weight luggage."

Pros: "Take off and landing was very smooth. Great staff"

Pros: "Onboard staff are friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Jetstar are unreliable, and do their best to extort more money from customers than the seemingly low initial price. Since they don't refund anything, if you need to make a change, they charge like wounded bulls and push you onto flights with inconvenient times and connections, then lie barefacedly, telling you the better flights are full."

Pros: "No hassles, great flight. No issues!!"

Pros: "I wish all airlines were as professional and prompt."

Pros: "I didn't get to fly as I had 3 brain surgeries in NY in May last year and I got sick and couldn't fly so I rang and no one could help me save the tickets so I'm very disappointed and won't use this app again. I have used this app so many times flying to America and back to Tasmania and this is how I was treated after 4 phone calls begging for help as it was the first trip my son and I were going alone as I hadn't seen him for two years. Qantas paid for my airfares to come home after surgery and I'll stay with them from now on"

Cons: "Just stay away from this airline. One of the worst in the world. Don't care about their customers at all."

Pros: "Even when delayed, the outcome is still alright. I love it when the pilot informs the passengers of the delay. The crew were really nice and the pilot too."
Cons: "The staff in the check in counter could be a bit friendlier. The person seemed angry ,no smile at all."

Pros: "The plane was relatively new."
Cons: "Boarding was late. Food selection was poor Entertainment choices were slim And obviously charging for luggage and food sucks."

Cons: "Flights were delayed each direction."

Pros: "Happy with the whole process, all too easy"

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "On time; baggage fees are by weight"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable; you pay extra for anything;"

Cons: "Was not on the flight because the international flight was canceled. Had to get a direct flight from Gold Coast to Japan."

Pros: "Amenity pack and entertainment were good. More movies to offer would have made the entertainment even better."
Cons: "We flew business class and it didn't feel too much like a business class experience. Welcome drinks were a nice touch but from there the service was not very attentive, we had to ask for empty glasses and plates to be cleared after they sat with us for over an hour. The meal was not great - pretty lack luster. No priority bag tags and our bags took over an hour to come out the other end."

Pros: "Crew really weighted in carry on luggages"
Cons: "They let me through although mine combined up to 8 Kg"

Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "No vegan food option"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service is terrible, they constantly change the rules so its different every time. They don't serve beverages on domestic flights but they also don't let you bring your own. They charge per kilo for bags being overweight. They weigh your carry on plus your personal items which can only add up to 7 kg and will charge you if you are over even if by just 1kg. Do not ever fly with jetstar."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 35mins. Seats very crowded, we all had to get out of our seats to let the window passenger in and out. No screens on seat backs, lucky I had my iPad and could listen to podcasts in the 3+hr flight."

Pros: "Awesome lady at check in."
Cons: "Just disappointing to need to pay for a cup of coffee. This is just too cheap to feel good about."
