Pros: The crews did their best in a bad situation and were informative and engaging. Tiger also have an easy and economical upgrade to cabin baggage weight limit.

Cons: Outbound we were delayed on the tarmac for 45mins as the cabin PA had failed. A tech had to board and reboot the computer system. Our return journey was delayed 80mins as the assigned plane had another technical issue and required replacement. On landing deboarding was delayed a further 10mins as the ground crew had brought the wrong set of steps and couldn't find the correct set.

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.

Pros: The staff were fantastic, very professional, friendly and helpful. On board wine and food was surprising with some gluten and dairy free options and a sparkling Tempus Two.

Cons: I purchased MoveMe to allow me to change to an earlier flight if my schedule changed. It did, and I arrived at the airport over an hour before the earlier flight was due to depart. I attempted to use the MoveMe option at the check in Kiosk and discovered it is not available at the kiosk. On speaking to a ground staff member, she advised that I was in plenty of time to move to the earlier flight, she confirmed that on a recent print out there were quite a few seats available and I simply had to go to the Service Desk.... which had a queue of approx. 8 people. Unfortunately, it took approx 20 mins to get served and it was now too late to get on the flight. If Tigerair are not resourced to efficiently manage face to face service then the MoveMe option must be available through the kiosk. This was an incredible waste of my time with well over 2 hours spent at the airport.

In the interim i booked the small flights on Tiger. I called both companies 4 times got the usual Asian call center responses and finally someone had the guts to tell me they would do nothing about it. Just insane and that’s what you will be if you ignore my advice. My daughter ended up with two flights she could never use and they would not do a single thing to help apart from go through their call center script to keep their jobs. You have been warned. Kayak should never refer people to gotogate.com. They offer similar customer service and would also do nothing.

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: We were shocked to be charged $275 for two checked bags. At the point that you are checking in you are trapped and don't have a choice but to pay it. We were told that if we had paid in advance it would be cheaper, but we didn't know what the weight of our bags would be so I just figured I'd pay at the airport. They didn't say that they charge so much more at the airport - which is a total rip off. We were also harassed by not having the email that showed we purchased an Australian Visa which is digitally tied to our passport. If they need to verify our Visa, then they should have the electronic means to verify it. Also, we were traveling from Sydney to Auckland so since we were leaving the country I'm not sure why they had to see our Australian Visa in the first place. We were already in the country!

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: Was delayed by 40 minutes for weather (fine), but then they boarded and we sat in the plane while they refueled and waited...for another hour. Seats were very narrow, not clean, and charged extra for 1 checked bag.

Good 6.6

Pros: We enjoyed our low cost flight with Jetstar. Check in was quick and easy. Boarding was also. We didn't purchase any food or entertainment which is why I gave each of those categories 1 star (there's no N/A or doesn't apply-type option).

Cons: Seats on Jetstar are a bit uncomfortable but for a short flight, it doesn't matter as much. Also, the luggage went to the wrong carousel for many folks on our flight.

Mediocre 2.6

Pros: New plane.

Cons: Really small plane. They placed my 6’8 husband in a regular row, when there were 2 bulk head and 1 exit row seat available. The “meal” = 3 half sandwiches - mayo & tuna (smelled through the cellophane wrapper) and a bottle of water. No entertainment. LOST MY LUGGAGE! Yuck. Avoid Jet Star.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: Flight time rescheduled meaning we had very little time for connecting flight. Then they checked our luggage in (weighed 8.5kg and only 7 allowed (charged $108). The booking in of the bags meant one of our party missed connecting flight. She arrived at gate while plane was still there and Capt said he would wait but ground staff over-ruled decision. Not happy.

OK 5.0

Pros: We eventually got to our destination.

Cons: Flight was 4 hours late. We had even received notices by email the flight would depart on time, just 30 minutes before. Not once did any staff or flight crew apologize for the delay. Also they had to reshuffle passengers because the weight was off.

OK 4.8

Cons: I learned that JetStar was the cheapest option for a reason. Check-in at Narita was a nightmare. Without any luggage to check it was over 1.5 hour wait just to check in.

Good 6.3

Pros: After we finally got checked in after standing in line (1.5hrs), due to the previous night's storms (& finally had to argue with staff, after they had already announced final check in)- everything else went off without a hitch. The flight operated- a plus when compared to my two previous JetStar bookings.

Cons: I organization of staff who had told us at "we would be fine" in the line we were in- only to be hurried to the "final check in desk" and have the staff there tell us to get back in line.

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.
