Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "For a flagship airline, a in seat screen should be a given. This is not a budget airline."
Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
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: "Crew were helpful and very nice. However, as first experience flying internationally with Qantas wasn’t positive.. very proud to be Australian but their mechanical faults doesn’t help in customer loyalty."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical faults for 4 hours. $15 meal voucher is not sufficient to cover the cost of proper meal. Airlines if allocating seats automatically should not put a female in between two males, not a very nice experience. No option to amend seat."

Pros: "Crew were great - happy & fun. Seats 19B & C"

Cons: "More than a biscuit for lunch"
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."

Pros: "Food was nice, could have been a little bigger. Staff were friendly ... well, except one lady."

Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "Qantas is a good reliable Airline, fleet of 747-400 getting a bit old. Too bad they will retire those costly planes as I have good memories going 20 times to Australia. Bring on the newer generation Boeing 787 dreamliners."

Cons: "Wasn’t fond of Qantas charging for seat selection for standard economy (international)."
Cons: "Seated in middle seat next to a very large and very smelly person I could hardly move and certainly not attlempt to eat or drink . Airlines do need to address this situation with people who are large . Non existent entertainment"
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: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"
Pros: "IFE for such a short flight, headset free. Cabin crew were quite pleasant. B737-800 series (Next Gen.) is a nice plane."
Cons: "Cramped. Lunch was that revolting beef & kale pocket (again!). Highest a/f of Tiger, Virgin & QF, which is fine if it’s worth it, which it most definitely wasn’t."
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Excellent flight - great from start to finish. Free wifi was a bonus! delicious afternoon tea"
Pros: "I liked the service, the friendly cabin crews. The food was good. We had a bit of turbulence on the way but all good. Thank you QF"

Cons: "Entertainment is bring your own screen if you want to see the programme"
Cons: "Great gluten free options! Thank you!"
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"

Pros: "Crew was amazingly helpful in all my enquiries"
Cons: "All amazing nothing to complain about it"
Pros: "Short flight . It's ok"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by one hour. Because I had to collect my carry-on bag, I missed my connection by 8 minutes. I was re-booked on another flight and was five hours late getting home"
Pros: "Dinner meal"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Get sick of explosives checks!"
Cons: "Seat in last row very uncomfortable"
Pros: "We were late arriving due to roadworks at the entrance to the airport leading us miles out of our way due to poor signage Baggage had closed and the Qantas staff were excellent in ensuring that we caught the flight .Well done !"
Pros: "So easy to get from international to domestic. Which was such a releif when trying to get home to a family emergency"
Pros: "Loved the hot chocolate and chocolate."
Cons: "No choices available for dinner and other snacks not very good."
Pros: "Staff were pleasant enough"
Cons: "Boarded about 40 mins late (understandable but still a negative), entertainment system didn't work at all the entire flight for anyone except Business Class, and the food portion (dinner apparently) was miniscule. I was starving by the time I disembarked."
Pros: "Didn't eat anything over airline food as it was my 3rd flight to get home to Melbourne"
Pros: "Loved the two cords in the seat behind me and the iPad idea"
Pros: "The steward went out of his way to accommodate my dietary needs. The vegetarian meals were all given out leaving nothing for me to eat. He spent the time and effort to prepare and bring me a meal from Business Class. 2 free checked bags is also a big plus."
Cons: "Felt like a budget airline. You need to pay extra to be able to preselect your seat. The amount of leg room is atrociously small. The 15 kg. carry on weight limitation is a joke. There were too few bathrooms and one was out of commission to boot."
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"
Pros: "No problem apart from left a tad late"
Cons: "Internet service was terribly spotty, but then again you're flying over vast amounts of ocean. Other than that, comfy and reliable flight that I could actually sleep on."
Pros: "I called several days in advance to request a gluten free meal, they said they processed the request, but there was not a gluten free meal for me on board. When the crew found out the problem they rummaged in the gallery and came up with a couple snack bars without gluten for me. They were awesome."
Cons: "Requesting a special meal in the time frame required and then it not being on board was really heard with Celiac's."
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: "everything was good"
Cons: "a screen at the seat."
Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "Better Movies"
Pros: "Plenty of empty seats on the plane"
Cons: "In flight entertainment die not work for me..."
Cons: "Way too cold in the cabin and asked for another blanket and was told no spares."
Pros: "Good boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Seat and legroom"
Pros: "Staff,service, ease of boarding"
Cons: "Small space leg room, lack of content on entertainment"
Pros: "Departed on time. Arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Leg room - very cramped"
Pros: "although late leaving we made up a bit of time."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment, no sweets on descent and the staff were grumpy"
Pros: "Great snack!!"
Cons: "I had a cold air vent blowing on me. Crew did nothing even though I asked 3 times to turn the AC down or provide me with a blanket. I will not fly on this airline again or recommend it to my friends."
Pros: "Great service and a free hot meal! Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Un-personal and clinical in approach to guests...especially as we are paying guests! Had just returned from overseas, flying Qantas and Singapore airlines.... virgin was decades away."
Pros: "Nice crew and fast and smooth flight"
Cons: "Didn't go much on the snack food!"
Pros: "Overall comfort of both plane and staff"
Pros: "We paid for Premium Seating- not quite Business Class, but supposedly like Business on a domestic flight. Boarding was great, right after business. We had problems with my seating, but the crew did everything they could to amend the issues. The crew was wonderful and really took great care of us."
Cons: "Right away we found out my chair was broken, and couldn't recline. Also, we had been placed in the first row of Premium and there are no automatic footrests. The crew has to bring those out. But there weren't any on board the plane at all. And since I'm only 5'2" tall, my feet don't reach the floor, causing blood circulation to be cut off in my legs from the pressure of hanging on the seat. No recline for 12+ hours, and no foot rest = a lot of pain and discomfort. I've been to the doctor twice since arriving home and am still in pain."
Pros: "Very helpful"
Cons: "As it is alliance with Singapore Airlines for international connecting but didn't felt any reasonable reason for not serving snacks."
Pros: "I fell asleep on the way to Mackay and the crew placed snacks out for me so I didn't miss out when I woke up, they read my signals and ensured I was looked after. Thanks & Merry Christmas"
Pros: "It was a good flight. Arrived on time"
Pros: "The comfortable seats and refreshments"
Cons: "I did not know how to get a seat assignment so ended up in a middle seat even though I booked months ahead."
Pros: "Plane was clean and the service crew was capable."
Cons: "Flight took off a half hour late and this 4 plus hour international flight from Australia to New Zealand had NOTHING TO EAT. This flight didn't offer a muffin or power bar only beverages. I have never been on a 4 hour flight where the passengers were not given some small complimentary snack. Shame on Virgin Australia."
Cons: "Check in was confusing, because we had to check in at one terminal and fly out of another.Food was not great but there was plenty of it."
Pros: "Food was terrible!"
Pros: "The crew - smiling, friendly and seemed to like their jobs"
Cons: "Food - meusli bar again!"
Cons: "Check in was horrible. Why have automated machines when they don't work and cause twice as much work for your employees. That was the only thing bad about me experience"
Pros: "Lounge access as a gold member, good facilities, full service on the plane, helpful crew"
Cons: "the flight was delayed, there was only a small sandwich for dinner which was a bit disappointing"
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful. On time. No problems at all.thank you."
Cons: "Only could have gluten free snack"
Pros: "- 30kg checking bag. - service"
Cons: "complementary snack is not healthy at all."
Cons: "I called Virgin a couple of weeks before the flight to confirm, but they could not find me on the passenger list. Told me to buy a new ticket. Then at the airport they miraculously found the original booking and WONT GIVE ME A REFUND!!!!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable short flight"
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay and was told they had to wait for the paint to dry????"
Pros: "We sat on the plane for 2.5 hours before take off but it was not the fault of the airline. Extending a long flight is unpleasant. No additional water bottles available on the flight so you have to refill what're you have. Very little seating at the boarding gate so we stood in line for over an hour. The return flight was fine. Airline staff was great. Customer service is obviously important to them."
Cons: "I would have liked some sort of notification that we had to retain our water bottles if we wanted any water on the flight. Refills only. I'm inexperienced with international flight so it was new to me."
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: "The flight was diverted (with no explanation or warning) which resulted in more than an hours delay!"
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: "It was a very bumpy flight due to the 100km/h+ wind in Melbourne that day. The landing was nice and easy in such bad weather. The cabin gave the pilots a round of applause."
Pros: "New clean plane and great service. This flight was far more comfortable than previous flights over this long distance."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "food quality has declined - clear cost saving tactic with the disposable packaging."
Cons: "Didn't use entertainment system."
Pros: "Everyone was super helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding and early departure from gate. I assume because all passengers had checked in early."
Cons: "Bring cash or a credit card. A three hour international flight should provide at least basic snacks and soft drinks for no charge. Especially to NZ where it is best to not have any food with you."
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."
Pros: "Nothing special. Just ok. Crew friendly."
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour. Seats pretty well worn. Hard on the derrière."
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: "I wish the land staff can be not so discriminative and please stop personal threaten against customers. Their bag drop leader Racheal is the most horrible person I have ever met in my life. Because of this horrified experience, I would never take Jetstar again."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Cons: "Why are their flights always delayed?"
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!!!"
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: "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."
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."
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."
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."
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: "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: "Our flight was delayed 5 hours for reasons unknown. More importantly, I wasn't aware that my carry on was to be weighed, and if it was over 7kg, I was to be charged $50. I will never fly this airline again."
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: "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"
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."
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: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "We got told the flight was from the international terminal and we could not make it even though we were at the terminal 1 hr earlier. Had to pay additional $50 to get on the next flight. A lot of other people were in the same boat as us"
Pros: "Plane didn't crash"
Cons: "I was informed 5 days in advance that my mid morning flight was cancelled due to "engineering reasons" via an unapologetic and unhelpful email. The burden was on me to reschedule (to a very inconvenient ultra early departure), and I had to twist the customer service fellow's arm to give me a beverage voucher in compensation. Then, when boarding I was mugged for my back pack. 50$ because it was over their utterly disingenuous 7kg "safety limit". It's not a safety rule - the CAA sets that. It's a revenue rule."
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"
Pros: "Kind employees."
Cons: "Extra baggage fees that were unexpected and no entertainment or food provided. Luckily it was a short flight."
Cons: "Flights were delayed each direction."
Pros: "Happy with the whole process, all too easy"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "They don't even offer you water on a 9 hour flight. Paid ridiculous baggage fees, and had to even pay for a blanket. Everything had a price on it. Don't recommend, avoid at all cost."
Pros: "The prompt service and friendly staff"
Cons: "The flight delay which couldn't be helped"
Pros: "On time, fair price, friendly staff"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Could not understand the announcements on the pa system. Inconsistant baggage rules."
Pros: "On time schedule"
Cons: "Excessive baggage charges. Very poor check in. Nobody was there to help us check in our bags as there was no check in counter. Not even a drop of water offered in the flight for free. Very narrow seats with no seat pockets to keep any personal articles."
Pros: "The couple I sat next to were lovely."
Cons: "The plane was over 2.5 hours late with no explanation. Coffee and tea were not free on this 9 hour flight on the morning rounds - one would sethink you back 4 whole dollars! The lady laughed at my flabbergasted face whend my jaw dropped and I said I couldn't afford that for water and a tea packet. Absolutely no value for cost, and beyond disappointing. I will spend whatever it takes to never use this airline again."
Pros: "Flight was on time The airplane was clean"
Cons: "This is the cheapest company I ever used. During the booking process they did not mention that they have a 7 kg limit on carry on items. This is not the case when you attempt to book a flight within Australia; clearly deceiving foreign travelers. In any case, I paid extra $24 to check in a (20 kg) bag. When arrived to the airport I voluntarily weighted the hand bag which was 8.2 kg. I explained that I am an international traveler with no mean of exactly weighing the bag. They insisted on checking in the extra bag and charged me additional $50 to do so. With those hidden fees, I ended up paying more for the flight than the competitors. During the flight, they offer nothing for free (not even water or coffee)."
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: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "No vegan food option"
Pros: "The flight itself was mostly fine. There was pretty bad wind turbulence and the pilot handled it smoothly."
Cons: "The website didn't let us know that we would have to pay a huge fee at the airport to put our bags on the plane. There were only two and they were not overweight, and still they cost us more than our two seats cost us. Then when we got on board they made us move out of the extra-knee-room seats we had paid for and into regular seats. It was not pleasant."
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: "Jetstar and similar Australian airlines are corrupt. You have to purchase additional luggage allowance 3 hours before flight time, and then it goes to $15AUD per pound. This was not clear to me. I was shocked when I was asked to pay $500 for my check-in luggage flying from Brisbane to Sydney, which was 6 times the price of my plane ticket. Corrupt!"
Pros: "quick boarding, smart to use both doors to board faster"
Cons: "the flight was delayed almost 2 hours. we had to wait around the airport which was very boring and a waste of time. if we had been informed of the delay we could've gotten to the airport much faster. a free glass of water on board would've been nice."
Cons: "excessive baggage fees unfair for international travelers...should state on their web site this airlines is not international traveler friendly we charge high rates for baggage so do not use us unless you have no bags...crew was unfriendly and land reps must get paid commission on what they can overcharge passengers."
