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"

Pros: "New clean plane and great service. This flight was far more comfortable than previous flights over this long distance."
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."
Cons: "there were not enough desks to check in at brisbane so many people missed there connecting flights. I flew with Delta and the process was much easier. Simply just dropped my bags off. Was also told the flight was being held, then when I arrived at the desk was told my bags wouldn't make it on the plane."
Cons: "I was sat next to a rather large person and felt squished some of the time"
Pros: "Overall this flight from Brisbane to LAX was fairly pleasant. Despite being reluctant to commit to any changes in the (uncomfortably cold) cabin temperature, one of the crew did respond to my inquiry by returning to say they had adjusted the temp upward to 24C, which in my mind earns them an A for Effort. What I had of the food was acceptable, but nothing to write home about. The touch screens seemed to work much more effectively than in the past, so those may have been upgraded. The crew I dealt with were generally very pleasant and responsive. The restrooms had sufficient toilet paper (never a guarantee), and as a stroke of luck, there was virtually no turbulence, that always makes things nicer."
Cons: "I was right by the gate before the flight but never heard any announcement calling out rows, the economy passengers just started herding themselves (as always) and eventually got in line/on the plane in what seemed to be a haphazard fashion. Like so many times before, the air conditioning was set too cold (they said it was set to 22C as if this is normal - that might be an average setting of comfort for a grown male wearing a full suit and walking around in an office setting, but not for a plane half full of females who aren't able to move around and get their blood circulating). The music and movie selections seemed to have changed over the years. I have pleasant memories of Virgin Australia offering virtually anything your heart could desire at the touch of a button, but this time around I couldn't find any artists that I recognized let alone liked, and the movie selection seemed much thinner. Licensing issues perhaps? For me this was actually disappointing."
Pros: "Boarded and departed on time. Good smooth flight."
Cons: "No window at seating. Disappointing for child traveller"
Pros: "Staff Are Lovely and so Helpfull"
Cons: "Just don't Like Flying haha"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the bula plus seats are worth the money."

Cons: "Free wifi onboard!"
Pros: "The people were great! And it was a smooth ride."

Pros: "Very welcoming crew, kept us informed of any changes"
Cons: "The seats are old, no entertainment, really not the quality I expected for an international flight"

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "I arrived in transit from another flight, no representation to make check in. I needed to wait for gate to open before I could check in. then there was no time for the airline to recover my Bag. Do no us this airline in transit"
Cons: "Small and bland food. Very limited entertainment. TV didnt work but they gave me an ipad."
Pros: "I have been traveling at least 4 times in a year for last 20 years. I never had such a worst staff specially the Msnager of Fiji airline ground staff at Sydney airport named Christopher. Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller."
Cons: "Worst Fiji ground staff at Sydney airport"
Cons: "with 39 passengers on a 60 persons flight the following annoncement came up: we need 5 volunteers or we leave 524kg of baggage we have to leave here. Than the locals started to bribe the personel... we have no idea if and when our stuff arrives..."
Pros: "My flight to Los Angeles was great comfortable seats and the food was very good"
Cons: "Unfortunately my flight from Los Angeles to Christchurch was cancelled the plane had a mishap on the runway colliding with another plain so was booked on an Air New Zealand flight back to Auckland the following night it was good of Fiji air to put me up in the Crowne Plaza near airport lovely hotel"

Cons: "sitting in a plane at Sydney airport for three hours waiting for a part,for the plane was not much fun.But we still got to Apia that day,or maybe late but before 12 midnight was a very long day."
Pros: "Most people who work for the airline are kind."
Cons: "The quality isn’t there... vegetarian meal was the same on both flights and beyond below par. Planes seem to be pretty past there prime in the 4 flights I have been on. Check in process is a nightmare without any automated options that backs everything up. When I arrived in Los Angeles and found that two zippers had been torn from my bag and one pocket open, the baggage staff scoffed at my claim and told me to go speak to a third party that handles baggage claims... I’ll just steer clear next time."

Cons: "They were a minimum 45 minutes late (one 2 hour, 2 one hour) for every flight. Their running late caused us to miss our connection to Brisbane, so they sent us to Sydney. The ,late flight into Sydney cause us to miss our flight into Brisbane (our ticketed destination city). As we de-planed on the Jetway was a woman holding a sign with 12 - 114 names on it, we were one. She told us to go the the transfer desk and they would help us. We had never been in Sydney, could not find a transfer desk (there was none) found the ticketing counter - nobody there, found the airline office - nobody there, went back to the ticket counter nobody still there, asked a competing airline, they directed us to an air travel management office, where we found Fiji Air personnel. They were surprised we were not told where to go. they tracked down the office manager. We finally met with him at 1:40 PM, he told us our flight was in the domestic terminal and scheduled to leave at 2:00 PM. There was no way we could make it to the plane on time. He was rather rude to us and asked us how we thought we were getting to Brisbane, We responded with "I don't know as we've never been here before". Having never been there. we did not know there was an international and a domestic terminal at the Sydney airport. He told us who we were to fly out on and he was going to call over to the other airline and straighten it out. We went to the domestic terminal tried to check in for our flight, but we could not. That airline called Fiji Air to find out why, after half an hour they were told Fiji Air would not honor our flight as we were noted as "no Shows"/. We had to book another flight to Brisbane. The flights were great, we have had VERY BAD EXPERIENCES with the ground personnel,"

Cons: "Entertainment movies not very many new releases."
Cons: "Delay flights"
Pros: "Staff and food were great, the flight was also very smooth. I would definitely still fly with Fiji airways, I think the delay just made everything seems worse."

Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "asked for a blanket... girl never came back with one"
Pros: "All good small"
Cons: "Small space"
Pros: "Check in staff and flight crew."

Pros: "Except entertainment and comfort i did not like any thing else."
Cons: "Very bad food for those who are strict veterinarian and even don't eat onion, garlic, mushroom because their religion dose not allow. very bad for one who is going to LA and allow only one hand carry even all other airlines allow one hand carry and one computer bag."
Cons: "The food was not very good."

Pros: "Lots of legroom. Clean, new plan. Friendly qnd efficient crew."
Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Pros: "Staff was very kind."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 2 hours Leg room was tight for a 10 hour flight Movie options were dated"
Pros: "Got us to Nadi safely."
Cons: "We had a banana from LAX airport and intended to eat it on the 13-hour overnight flight. Unfortunately we forgot about it. The customs at Nadi found it on X-ray and slapped us with FJ$400 fine! One of the Fijian bio security officer told us that "by handing out big fines, we hope the airlines will remind passengers of biosecurity rules...". But Fijian airways failed to do that. $400 fine is a horrible start of your vacation and we will never come back to visit Fiji. We will also advise all our friends not to visit Fiji on facebook."
Cons: "I was not given a meal for dinner. When I asked they sheepishly looked away from me and told me that there would be a voucher when we landed. We did not get any voucher,nor did they make an announcement that they ran out of food and would not be able to feed half of the plane. I am extremely disappointed in how this was handled, as people next to me were given first class meals and I was given one piece of cheese and one cracker. In the morning for breakfast my meal almost didn't come, I had to ask for it. And when it was given to me it was already opened and messed with."
Cons: "The only choice of food was curry"
Pros: "Food options were good. Service was great. I think it was a great options with the price I paid."

Cons: "No leg room."
Pros: "Seats okay but would not recline"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because of poor rostering due to one of the crew being out of hours and another crew member had to be brought from Brisbane to Sydney to join the flight. Not very professional in my eyes."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived 10 min early"
Cons: "No hot food, limited selection.....which ran out quickly"
Pros: "Nothing special. Just ok. Crew friendly."
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour. Seats pretty well worn. Hard on the derrière."
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: "Good service and nice people"
Cons: "Nothing everything was good"
Pros: "It was generally a pretty good flight. Timing was ok"
Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped."
Pros: "my brand new luggage was completely ripped."
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."
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."
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 $50 to get on the next flight. A lot of other people were in the same boat as us"
Pros: "No hassles, great flight. No issues!!"
Pros: "Plane didn't crash"
Cons: "I was informed 5 days in advance that my mid morning flight was cancelled due to "engineering reasons" via an unapologetic and unhelpful email. The burden was on me to reschedule (to a very inconvenient ultra early departure), and I had to twist the customer service fellow's arm to give me a beverage voucher in compensation. Then, when boarding I was mugged for my back pack. 50$ 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: "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: "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: "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!"
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."
