Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "More comfortable than expected."
Cons: "Could not check in online or at the kiosk (the flight was part of an overall ticket bought on Air New Zealand). Only one checked bag per ticket, but we had an extra bag because of the international legs. An employee got us checked in, bags tagged, and convinced us to carry on one more bag."

Pros: "Perfect flight, departure and arrival in time. Friendly team on board. Appreciate it! Thank you!"
Pros: "Flying to Qantas always enjoyable - staff always make for pleasant journey. Always happy to fly Qantas."
Cons: "One negative experience was that there was only 1hr 30mins between connecting flights. Between departing international flight - picking up luggage/toilet stop and clearing Immigration/Customs then catching bus between Qantas international domestic terminals we were racing to catch flight. As we arrived Qantas domestic terminal our names were being called over along with info the plane was awaiting our arrival. In my experience 2hrs is minimum time between connecting flights - otherwise good experience."
Cons: "Do you really need to be provided with a meal at 11pm just after departure? A decent snack pack would be a better get, and allow people to get to sleep."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful and professional crew which which always makes for a better overall experience."
Cons: "The crew seemed to have to spend much of their time as IT consultants assisting with iPads."
Pros: "Didn't have to pay for drinks, after 4pm policy!"

Cons: "Nothing. Probably the best airline flown"

Pros: "- The kindness of the crew members - The food - The entertaining aboard"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold even with multiple layers and a blanket"
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: "Crew ans eat was both good"
Cons: "on time flight, food selection"
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: "Very nice flight attendant took care of seating problem."
Cons: "Give me the seats I had reserved."
Pros: "Crew were very good professional and provided good customer service."
Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "Better Movies"
Cons: "In flight entertainment die not work for me..."
Pros: "the crew was nice and helpfull"

Cons: "No inflight entertainment, no sweets on descent and the staff were grumpy"
Cons: "See above, I was so bored, tired and irritated I can’t be bothered to say if this flight was good or not. Much better than being stuck in the airport and was glad to get to my destination."
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"

Pros: "Overall comfort of both plane and staff"

Cons: "Luggage of 23kg per piece and not able to share across allocated family total"
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: "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: "New clean plane and great service. This flight was far more comfortable than previous flights over this long distance."
Pros: "Glad I wasnt conecting internationally..Plane problems..Other airlines might have offerred some compensation for 2.5 hrs late.."
Cons: "Otherwise fine"
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."
Pros: "Everyone was super helpful and friendly."
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: "Smooth flight, departed on time"
Pros: "The free snack us an unhealthy chocolate..ok for spinning freeinflight ad but insulting to the intelligence of customers"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Small seats, which did not recline at all, to the great discomfort of several passengers in our area, including us. With particular physical limitations due to old wounds, i have to say it was painful and unexpectedly difficult for the nearly 3 hours of incarceration. Partly this was exacerbated by the lump of head rest not moving high enough away from my shoulders. My travel companion has a head rest which was also wrecked, come away from its frame and unable to be sorted properly. In all, a poor set up for a flight."
Pros: "On time & comfortable, with reasonable food."
Cons: "Service from flight attendants wasn't as friendly as usual."
Pros: "good to include a free snack"
Cons: "Three of our party are coeliac and no gluten free option was available and the only choice we were offered was to purchase the gluten free cookie - which we declined. The picture in the back of the menu of the free snacks included a gluten free option so we were a bit annoyed that this wasn't available."
Cons: "A little more leg room"
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: "They cancelled return flight and were rude when I tried to rebook; they also weigh luggage and charge extra; had one kind agent who helped; won’t fly again and won’t use cheap flights"
Cons: "Flights to & from Sydney to Melbourne were ok!"
Pros: "No intermediate stop"
Cons: "Economy seats very uncomfortable, very noisy toilette"
Cons: "Why are their flights always delayed?"
Pros: "Thank you so much for returning my laptop to me. I left it on board seat 4c. Made my day , comfy fast flight"
Pros: "It was clean and spacious."
Cons: "I wish entertainment and/or snacks were provided."
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Nothing...all went very well, arrived early, suitcase came quickly."
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: "I did like the price of airfare. The aircraft was clean."
Cons: "No legroom, no complementary snacks or drink. No entertainment."
Pros: "Travel good"
Cons: "There was a delate"
Cons: "Got charged $120 at the gate as my bags were 7.5kg not 7kg. Blatant money grab."
Pros: "I really liked the hostel. The location is good."
Cons: "The rooms didn't have doors and didn't have lockers. One bathroom for 12 beds. The shower didn't work."
Pros: "my brand new luggage was completely ripped."
Pros: "The Steweys were great!!"
Cons: "The entire experience"
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."
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!"
Cons: "Delayed departure which affected my travel plans"
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: "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: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Delayed more than 1hr"
Pros: "Kind employees."
Cons: "Extra baggage fees that were unexpected and no entertainment or food provided. Luckily it was a short flight."
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
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: "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)."
Cons: "Nothing but the fair is included"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Paying for seat and Niger luggage"
Cons: "No entertainment"
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: "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."
Pros: "Crew were fine"
Cons: "Kids were literally using my seat as a jungle gym. Staff should have controlled kids"
Pros: "Quick and efficient. Crew was great."
Pros: "Timely, warm friendly crew, comfortable seating"
Cons: "Flying out of Avalon Airport in Melbourne. Too far out of the way."
Pros: "Llegue a destino"
Cons: "Si no pagas no hay ni agua"
Pros: "even thought they departed late we landed on time"
Cons: "both flights departed late"
Pros: "It took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Everything else"
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."
Pros: "Was on time and I personally did not run into any problems."
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: "They got me to the same location at essentially the same time as another airline, for a lower price."
Cons: "Everyone boards all at once."
