Main problem was that the inflight entertainment system did not work on two legs of a Sydney to London Heathrow flight. They tried very hard to fix it in Sydney and Singapore without success. Apart from that, a very comfprtable flight

Pros: "Crew ok"
Cons: "Seat comfort and meals left a lot to be desired..."
Pros: "Crew always competent & professional"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice. I got lucky and got the whole row to myself."
Cons: "More space in Economy, and to have the passenger in front lift up their seat during meals. It's very hard to eat with the tray down when the person in front has their seat reclined all the way back."
Pros: "Suberb crew. Not obsequious, just helpful with good anticipation."
Pros: "Crew was good. Seats somehow seemed narrower than normal flights I have taken with Qantas. Sat in middle not even enough space to drink tea comfortably. Wouldn't want to be in that position for any longer flights."
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The plane was on time. There was cool air circulating from the moment we boarded The breakfast, which consisted of cereal, milk and a small muesli bar was good. Sky News was played on the drop down screen"
Cons: "The seats are cramped with very little arm room."
Pros: "everything about he flight was perfect"
Pros: "Exit row seat. Lovely aircraft and cabin crew."
Pros: "Twice this trip, 2 qantas staff rectified our seating allocation so we could sit together as a family and i didn't even have to ask. The staff are always so pleasant and engaging."
Cons: "A mishap when allocating seats online, when i chose seats for us online (my fault i left it too late) there weren't any together...but the staff rectified this..."
Pros: "Friendly flight staff"
Cons: "Cramped conditions in economy but you get what you pay for"
Pros: "Qantas is always a great choice. Good food and service."
Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"
Cons: "Stink The usual cramped seating Long wait to deplane"
Cons: "No options for seat choose which totally rubbish don't like deal with Qantas in future"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, after 5 hours of waiting for updates. So we are still stuck in Sydney."
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: "New business layout is more comfortable comfortable and private."
Pros: "Fantastic Service On time Easy boarding"
Pros: "Friendly staff, efficient processes, on time - and the only airline with a direct flight from Brisbane to Tokyo."
Cons: "If only I could afford business class :("
Pros: "There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from. Breakfast was actually pretty tasty, and snacks and water were offered quite frequently. The seat was reasonably comfortable, and reclines back a decent way. For how huge the plane was, the boarding process was super fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Seats were still rather cramped for my poor husband, who is 6'3. It is very hard to get out of your seat if you're in a window and all the seats on front are fully reclined, and I am relatively spry! Can't imagine an elderly or debilitated person trying to do so! The in flight movies were great, but you had to use the headphones they provide, and none of the 3 pairs I tried worked well. All had constant static. Although the seats recline far, they also do it abruptly and are hard to get to come back up. The dinner (we had the beef) was not very good. The quality of the ground beef was what you would expect from a fast food place. The worst part of the flight was that the sat ALL the infants in the same area on the plane, and all right around us. 5 of them, to be exact. 17 hours of on and off screaming babies! My husband had to move to a different seat to get some sleep! Thankfully, I can sleep through anything. Overall, less terrible than I expected a 17 hour flight to be, but could have been better. Some crew were very nice and helpful and others not so much. The first woman my husband asked told him (rather abruptly) that he wouldn't be able to use his CPAP machine. Then a really nice guy helped him get it set up. The turbulence was a bit scary for me, and the way the captain would announce it didn't help! He'd just say "all passengers and crew be seated and fasted your seat belts" in a rather grim tone as the plane shook violently."
Pros: "Qantas provides a nice welcome when your board domestic flights in Australia like the one we took today between Brisbane and Sydney not just on their international flights. They greet you when you board, don't feel like a number like domestic flights in the USA be it American, Delta, United, or one of the others. They provide free premier movie access, serve a nice warm meal and drink, and make you feel welcomed - Keep up the great work Qantas, you could give the USA airlines lessons on how to treat passengers."
Pros: "It was a good and pleasant flight"
Cons: "The food was not good and it was not enough"
Pros: "Service always attentive and genuine"
Cons: "Food was not as good as previous Qantas flights. Probably because it was catering to American crowd."
Pros: "Looking out the window."
Cons: "Flight changed from an A330 to a B737 perhaps as Resukt if the public holiday"
Pros: "I like food and service of crew members"
Cons: "Yes I like it"
Pros: "Short flight . It's ok"
Cons: "Seat"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Good seats. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Qantas seems to be notorious late. This flight was no exception. The food was terrible. They called it a pulled pork sandwich. Jikes. Very crowded"
Pros: "Loved the two cords in the seat behind me and the iPad idea"
Pros: "All"
Cons: "I did not at all like the fact that the Qantas supplied headphones did not come with an adaptor to convert my pwn noise cancelling earphones to stereo sound."
Pros: "Everything was great about these flights, food and service included. We had a slight delay on our return flights but were updated along the way. Definitely recommend!"
Pros: "Almost 17h is a LOOOONG flight, so it could have been awful... Thankfully it was not crowded, though, so I had a centre row to myself! Actually managed to get more than 4h of sleep. Loved the SkyCam, especially since we followed the full moon all the way."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "- The kindness of the crew members - The food - The entertaining aboard"
Pros: "Food off the menu was excellent. Tummy wasn't feeling well so I liked having carb-free options. The Asian salad for dinner and fruit platter for brekkie went down well."
Cons: "Have always booked tickets and flown with my partner. Set alarm to check-in online exactly 24hrs prior to departure as usual and found my partner and I seated in different seats with no available seats to switch. How can this be on an aircraft this big? Thought we might be able to fix it at the counter next day, we headed to the airport early by 3hrs to sort it out. Maybe it was the end of a long day, our flight was close to midnight... Check-in lady was lovely and all smiles but it went downhill from here... No option to sit together and no offer of an upgrade at the counter or at boarding (we didn't ask). Duty-free collection instructions weren't clear prior to boarding ("board as you will and pick up after") and during boarding the staff member seemed over it ("pick up after boarding"). Wouldn't it be easier to advise over the PA so we don't have to ask or if we have to ask explain something along the lines of "you can collect your duty free from the cart after you scan you ticket, prior to boarding the aircraft". The worst part of our experience was the aircraft itself. The plane was obviously very old and tired. My partner's seat kept reclining and wouldn't stay upright (we didn't complain). Rows were so close together that you could smell the person in front's hair when they reclined their chair fully (which they did for the entirety of the flight) and your eyes feel cross-eyed it was so close. The entertainment system was old - we couldn't choose when to watch our movies and as movies aren't the same duration we missed out on a lot of the movies we did want to watch. Finally the selection of movies could've made up for this downfall but it was incredibly limited in selection for a long haul flight. Not sure if it was us but the flight crew also seemed tired and over it too. Luckily we had sleeping pills so we slept through much of the flight but what we did experience wasn't good at all. V disappointed."
Pros: "Another successful mission with QantasI like the overall experience and the way that Qantas recognise my platinum status it's always a great pleasure to fly to mystically and internationally with Qantas"
Cons: "I think the stream the in-flight entertainment is a bit of a cheat and then I should go back to providing entertainment those messages without a laptop or iPad"
Pros: "Crew members were nice and courteous"
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 4 hours . Seats are not roomy at all and not comfortable compared to other international airways."
Cons: "I'm a qantas frequent flyer and have always been loyal. But next trip, I will try a different carrier (Etihad, Emirates even Singapore). Standards have slipped, customer care is lacking. I heard this from people I was sitting with as well, so not just my opinion."
Pros: "The food was great along with the movies. Everything went smoothly and made it home no problems."
Pros: "I liked that my baggage was returned to an address I gave the staff. However, my baggage was recovered and only delivered to me the Next evening at 6 p.m:(. It was most inconvenient as I had clothing For a graduation function I had to miss due to no baggage. :(:(:"
Cons: "I was most surprised to have NO baggage to arrive in Tokyo Especially as business class priority baggage. Staff at baggage handling in Tokyo were extremely helpful But NO compensation was given to allow me to purchase Basic materials. I was yoke I can collect $80 at Sydney airport On return!!!!!"
Cons: "Quick service"
Pros: "Great service as always!"
Pros: "fewer rows of seats in my section upstairs quiet - no children darkness for the overnight flight"

Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "crew were nasty Ran down aisle with without stopping I had to call her back twice"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good, that was about it."
Cons: "Service was so poor. Being in economy they treated you like you were more of a nuisance to them then a customer. Got one drink served to me, 3 hours in, on a 14 hour flight. Our first meal was 3 hours in, and was served 30 min after the people next to me. Trash and dishes were not picked up and when we asked attendant he asked us to bring them to the cabin ourselves! after sitting with them in front of us for an hour after dinner. Window screens left up during flight omitting sun glare making It hard to sleep. been making the LAX to Brisbane or Sydney flight to 8 years now, Qantas has progressively got worse while Virgin customer service remains as a high standard. Looks like sales on Qantas will no longer entice me, I'll be sticking with virgin"
Pros: "Good solid Qantas service, comfortable seating, flight on time and just a nice all round product."
Cons: "Aircraft swapped from a 332 to a 738. I'd specificity booked this flight to avoid the 738."
Pros: "Poor food. Not as good as domestic."
Cons: "Helpful and aware."
Pros: "This was an Emirates flight. Codeshare means you get attentive staff and decent food. Always happy to be on a Qantas codeshare partner instead of the Qantas planes. The gap from Emirates back to Qantas is vast."
Pros: "The flight was great had a smooth transition from plane to terminal"
Cons: "Food was very ordinary"
Pros: "Getting off the flight"
Cons: "The Flight attendant allowed a passenger to change seats to sit right next to my seat without asking if I was happy with this. I have previously requested to changes seats and been told it is not allowable. No entertainment options available on the flight. The meal/refreshment was a chocolate cookie, which was dry and inedible. The cabin was not clean and uncomfortable."
Pros: "No problem apart from left a tad late"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "The crew was not excellent. Seemed a little rushed and preoccupied."

Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Never ever EVER book thru byo jet. Business breakfast was shocking obviously budget driven not presentation nor taste. Who declared that Arab cheese was consumable. Never book thru BYO jet"
Pros: "My Mum has mild dementia and was going to Sydney from Maroochydore to visit family. From check in at MCY to arrival back at MCY the staff looked after her very well.

Cons: "I don’t think it’s acceptable to not give any food on a 6 hour flight. Also to pay for food we need to wait for the cart. I sat hungry for awhile."
Cons: "I got to Sydney from LA at 10am on a Thursday after my flight was delayed by over an hour because of catering issues. I brought a carryon luggage with me but was forced to check it because it was overweight. That's totally fine. When I went to baggage claim after the flight, my luggage was no where to be found. I went to the help desk and was told they have no idea where my bag was. They asked for my contact info and was told to wait for a call. I continuously called to check the status and it was still not located. Finally I heard from them Saturday morning and I got my bag delivered on Saturday at 8pm. I had to leave for my flight at 6am Sunday. I had no clothes and wasted so much time and money shopping for necessities. Very unhappy about."

Pros: "Everything was above expectation"
Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Appalling that in this day and age, Virgin does not cater for gluten intolerance. It's not hard to have meals without wheat, yet there's never a gluten free option even when there are non-Pasta based dishes such as curries and stir-fries. Gluten intolerance is so common these days so it's unbelievable that Virgin doesn't try to ensure at least one of the dishes doesn't have wheat/gluten. A 5 hour trip to/from Perth to Brisbane is a very long time to have no savoury meals. I never thought I'd say this, being a loyal Virgin flyer; Qantas is looking more appealing as they cater for GF meals Alim domestic flight and have started to improve their customer service."

Every single one of my flight were delayed. On top of that when I asked for water I didn’t get it the first time. I had to ask for it multiple of time.

Cons: "The attitude of the crew towards passengers with children. They made us wake up our sleeping child because she was on a blow up cushion that obstructed her leg space. Even though we explained it could be deflated in a single second and was not causing harm to anyone else they still made us move it. Also, they gave us a guilt trip for changing a peepee diaper in our seat (careful not to touch any seats) and wouldn't take the trash. As any parents knows, changing a diaper in an airline bathroom is one of the most unsanitary and awful things you can do with your young child due to the extreme lack of space. Airlines in general should make a "family bathroom" with more space for parents to change their kids."
Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":)"
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!!!"
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: "I liked the organisation"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "I have put past a lot of things that jetstar airlines have done in the past, including the 140$ that I had to pay to change and pay to rebook or pay to cancel and there were no given supports with credits, so I ended up abandoning the flight altogether losing the money. I flew jetstar from Sydney to Sunshine Coast with my backpack a personal bag and a tote bag. I had previously paid 20$ for checked luggage. Making my total for the flight 80$ no one asked to weigh my bags or questioned them. Making the 20$ extra just disappear? . They did make me throw out my beverage upon entered the aircraft that I just purchased, I would assume because it’s a ‘safety issue’ even though the airline does not give complimentary anything so I’m assuming it’s mostly competition of sales.In Gold Coast I checked my bags through security got to the gate and they had a trolly weighing bags. They asked me if I was traveling with someone else which I replied with a no. They then weighed my backpack saying it was 7kgs and I had to come with them to the front. So my backpack personal item and tote bag was too much all of a sudden. I offered to give up the tote bag which then turned the situation into that all of my bags were over weight and it was going to charge me 60$ for my 7kg backpack. I said 60$ was expensive and I paid 20$ last time for my checked bags on the way here that I hadn’t used and he said too bad. Meanwhile the majority of people boarding past me had had rolling luggage and an additional bag or a personal item and when I said something to the employee he told me I’m wrong and they were all weighed and it’s 60$ for my belongings to be checked and put under the plane? Because 60$ somehow made the weight of the flight more light? Horrible customer service. I didn’t get I’m sorry any compassion I got what are you paying with? I paid 60$ or miss my flight. 60$ could have given me one more flight. Also to mention the flight was not even completely full so what did that 60$ accomplish? Awful awful awful . So in the future I suppose I’m just going to donate 20$ regardless if I have checked luggage or not because paying for everything is the only consistent thing on jetstar. On the positive side they let me jump the line after I paid 60$ for my “overweight luggage” and I got to my assigned seat more quickly."
Pros: "my brand new luggage was completely ripped."
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: "Friendliness of the staff."
Cons: "Lateness of flight"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "It wasn't cancelled like previous flight. It arrived and departed o time . No inflight entertainment at all."
Cons: "The cramping was incredible. No storage , people's bag from seat behind encroaching on foot space in front. Knees in my back from behind passenger. Seat design exceptionally upright, no head rest wings to support a dosing head. Torture chamber really."
Pros: "Great crew that were all very friendly, Water was provided for free"
Cons: "Meals are not provided and drinks other than water will cost you My luggage was not automatically transferred into the connecting flight"
Cons: "Jetstar's luggage policy is a scame. Their carry on allowance is very small and I was charged 60 dollars to check a bag I never have to check at the fair. When I landed they couldn't remove the bags because of a storm, so I had to wait extra time for bags I shouldn't have needed to check. They also charge exorbitantly for anything on the flights. I wanted a cup of water and they asked for 4 dollars for a mini bottle. If their rates were cheap this would have been understandable, but that's not the case."
Pros: "Quick and easy, just as expected, staff professional and. Friendly"
Pros: "because I fly a lot in the US, I actually thought there was more space on the planes than we usually have here. I also don't mind not having food for free since we don't usually either. beverages would be nice, but since we were able to bring our own through security in Australia, it didn't bother me. Compared to most airlines in the US, it was great. Much more efficient as well. Even though we had to pay extra for luggage, there was tiered pricing by weight and it was still cheaper than most carriers in the US."
Pros: "Sleep well"
Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"
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: "Flight left on time and arrived on time. My travel companion and I were seated next to each other."
Cons: "I was not able to purchase baggage during the booking process even though the customer service rep told me that at-purchase is the cheapest time to purchase baggage. There was literally no option to purchase it during my purchase process (I scrutinized every step of the process since I had been burned re baggage prices on my previous JetStar flight). I paid more for baggage on this flight than the previous flight even tho I paid for a lower amount of kilos. I decided to drive for the next of my flags instead of fly Jetstar again. Over it."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "The planes were clean."
Cons: "When we purchasing tickets through Kayak we were not informed that we would have to pay $25 per kilogram on our checked bags. These bags are normally roller wheel carry-ons, but we were not allowed to carry them on. The cost was $640! We were told only when we got to the counter (there are no electronic tickets or electronic check in.) we received a 'discount' and had to pay $360. The jet star agent admitted that she gets multiple complaints DAILY about these fees. Jet Star scams its customers. The reviews are poor precisely because of this. Avoid this airline."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Paid for Qantas, but got Jetstar, which is at best deceptive and at worse bait and switch. The crew member weighing our carry ons and purses was snotty and bitterly sarcastic. Honestly I don't know how he got a customer-facing position when his best response is "you should know better" when we mentioned that we were under the impression that the carry on baggage limit didn't include purses. We didn't get food, and entertainment was nonexistent (which is why we went with what we thought was Quantas). Added to the long line for Jetstar bag drop and the uncomfortable airplane, I'll never fly Jetstar again. Furthermore, Quantas should seriously consider whether lying to its customers is a good strategy."
Cons: "Seat. Slow boarding"
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."
Cons: "Ordered food online. Would be better just buying when on flight. Egg sandwich both flights. No choice."
Pros: "Kind employees."
Cons: "Extra baggage fees that were unexpected and no entertainment or food provided. Luckily it was a short flight."
Cons: "We booked through Kayak and weren't told that when you book a flight with Jetstar, you get NO BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE. ZERO, ZIP, NIL. We didn't know this and assumed like other Australian and New Zealand carriers, we would each get one free bag, so I went online and paid $25 for a third bag. When we checked in for a domestic flight, we were told that we would have to pay $400 to send our luggage with us. THAT WAS MORE THAN WE PAID FOR OUR SEATS! We were also told that had we paid for our luggage ahead of time, it would have only been $60. Be very careful if you fly this airline. Make sure you know what is and what is not included with your ticket, especially if you use a third party to purchase your tickets. PS - All drinks (including coffee, tea, soda, etc.)are extra. Frankly, I'm surprised they don't charge for using the toilet in flight"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The prompt service and friendly staff"
Cons: "The flight delay which couldn't be helped"
Pros: "Everything. Great customer service"
Pros: "The cost of the flight couldn't be beat. And aside from the last minute change in flights due to a cancelled flight the actual flights and flight crew on both flight were excellent."
Cons: "Having my original direct flight cancelled and being rebooked with a stop before Sydney. Caused issues with having to go through customs then to recheck bags and transfer from an international terminal to a domestic terminal with a very minimal amount of time afforded between connections especially since the 1st leg landed late. The only compensation was a $50 discount on another flight which in all honesty is no compensation at all since I don't fly to Australia on a regular basis so not likely to be flying with Jetstar over the next 3 months. A comp meal would have been more appreciated for the disruption in my flight plans that caused me to get into my destination later then planned."
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: "I liked how easy it was to check in, the pleasantness of the crew, and the entertainment that was provided (should you purchase it)."
Cons: "I didn't like how people just rushed to get in front of the line and didn't wait for their row numbers to be called when boarding the plane. I understand that everyone wants the overhead compartment space, but it was just rude. Also, it is frustrating that the airline will nickel and dime you for everything. My suggestion is to make you sure you buy the Kilograms for your luggage before you get to the airport (if you are checking luggage in) or else you are going to be paying a hefty price to check your bags. Also you are only allowed 7 Kgs (15 lbs) for carry on luggage...if you go over that you will be charged. The seats were comfortable, but way too close together."
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: "The flight took off on time. Checking in was quick and easy and I received both boarding passes for my trip."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and I had to stay a day longer in Bali at my own expense to get a flight from DPS to Melbourne to Auckland. Because I had to change flights I did not receive my meal or entertainment which I had pre-paid when I booked. When the plane landed in Melbourne we had to wait for 40 mins to be let off the plane. People said there were prisoners on the flight that had to be de-planed first. Because of this delay I missed my connection to Auckland. I had to wait another 3 hours (midnight - 3.00am) for the next flight."
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: "Very cramped"
Pros: "I liked that Jetstar communicated with me and kept me informed about what was happening with my flights. I liked that the Jetstar staff in Sydney helped me to get a room for the night, the hotel people were helpful and friendly, the shuttle bus drivers were helpful and friendly. I liked that Qantas helped me transfer my Jetstar cancelled flight to QF148, so I was able to fly Auck to SYD. I did like that Jetstar provided free in-flight entertainment to all passengers after the flight form SYD - DPS was dallied 3 hours on departure."
Cons: "I didn't like that my Jetstar flight was cancelled and I missed my connecting flight to Denpasar. I didn't like that I lost a whole day of my holiday due to the flight cancellation, I missed my pick up transfer from DPS airport to my hotel in Ubud late at night, and I was not refunded my night's booked accomodation at my Ubud hotel. I didn't like that I had to go through immigration, pick up my baggage in SYD before I could get to the Jetstar counter to connect with my flight to DPS. because of this delay I missed my connecting flight. I did not like that My one day delayed connecting flight from SYD to DPS was delayed a further 3 hours departing from Sydney."
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: "Take off was delayed. Beware, since this is the last flight of the day, there's very little room for delays arriving in Sydney as all flights must land at Sydney Airport by 10:30pm. We were lucky that we just made the cut off"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and cheerful."
Cons: "Crew were not aware I had a starter plus package which included a food voucher. This often happens with Jetstar and is annoying when you have paid for the extras. Also flight was delayed and I had to make a connecting flight. Would have been good if crew ensured people did not straggle when boarding with the appropriate announcements."
Pros: "Crew & Air craft was good"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
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."
Cons: "Lesson learned, NEVER fly Jetstar again. As an international traveler, I had an oversized bag with me that was free on my other 4 flights, but got totally blindsided by the exorbitant fee Jetstar charged. It would have cost $25 in the USA IF they would have charged me, $170 on Jetstar. Ruined my day."
Cons: "Another flight between BNE & SYD delayed. This occurred on my flight from SYD to BNE causing me to miss an important event. This occurred again on my return flight. No complimentary food or meal during the flight as expected but did not expect the airline to deny me a glass of water unless I paid for it. Even a prisoner is given water!! Can't comment on the entertainment as I did not bother watching any, therefore gave that an OK rating. Food/water, none supplied, therefore a 'Poor' rating Wont be flying with Jetstar again."
Pros: "Nothing"
