Pros: "Comfortable economy class, food throughout the flight."
Pros: "Food and crew!"
Cons: "The moment they gave out the ice cream it broke in half and began melting. Its hard to eat in the dark and turning on the light with a sleeping neighbor is no fun. Not the best choice to provide it as a popsicle... maybe a cup would be best."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment. No seat charging. It would have been nice to know this a head of time so we could have prepared (tracing with 3 kids). Right before we took off crew told everyone to down load virgin app, they didn’t specify the entertainment app. So we were not able to watch any movies."

Pros: "Overall comfort of both plane and staff"
Cons: "The bag drop queue was stationery as the belt was broken down. It was a very long wait for elderly people and meant we had no time for anything at the airport despite setting out far earlier than we needed to. Then when we reached Newcastle no bag arrived.

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: "getting out on time, complimentary food."
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."

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: "Friendly staff"
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: "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."
Cons: "Was disgusted that I had only a 6kg small carryon suitcase & a laptop in my handbag (6kg) and had my carryon taken off me & put on the next flight & not getting delivered until 10pm tonight!!! Plus had to pay $60 and buy some clothes to wear to event tonight as luggage won’t arrive in time. Will never fly Jetstar again!!!"
Cons: "And no announcements re the delay until the very last minute."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment facilities or capabilities"

Pros: "It was generally a pretty good flight. Timing was ok"
Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped."
Cons: "Charged $60 for checking a bag. After which not loading the bag on plan which they charged. Even coffee cost money on this flight. I would not recommend this nor I would fly again without this airline."
Pros: "my brand new luggage was completely ripped."
Cons: "The assisted mobility did not work at all well, Perth it didn’t turn up, no help on or off the plane, Melbourne only took you as far as the eating area, with a lot further to go to the luggage reclaim, no one to help me with my luggage!"
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: "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: "never fly with Jetstar again ripped off with return baggage cost girl at reception seemed to get pleasure at taking 60 dollars from me for another hidden cost"
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: "Check in worked well"
Cons: "Significant delay because an intoxicated passenger was taken off flight, and her bag had to be found. Why was she allowed to check the bag in if she wasbthatvdrunk! No immigration slips for Australia available on plane. This meant another delay to complete when on ground."
Pros: "Flight was easy and quick two hours"
Cons: "Everything went perfect"
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"
Cons: "Fast efficient travel friendly staff"
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."
Cons: "Plane left an hour late"
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"
