Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Cons: "As an incoming traveller and a Platinum Qantas member, I was refused access to the Qantas Lounge on arrival in Townsville. All I wanted to do was spend fifteen minutes reviewing my diary and directions for the visits planned here. This is the Irish version of hospitality. God bless his departure."

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: "Overall comfort of both plane and staff"
Pros: "Had more then normal snacks."
Cons: "High numbered srat assignments board fron back of plane. This requires you to climb down & up stairs with carry-on bags. Would be good to mention when making reservation & seat assignments."
Cons: "There was an extremely long line at check-in with only a couple of Virgin Australia attendants working. Despite the line (of several hundred people), the staff appeared to have no urgency about moving customers through the check-in process, and at one point two of the the three workers quit working, packed up and left. Replacements arrived five minutes later and took another five to ten minutes to set-up before helping customers - leaving one agent for the overflowing line. Total wait time for check-in alone was over 1 hour."
Cons: "Boarding made half passengers drag their carryon luggage down stairs, then drag them up the plane. Not acceptable! Almost pulled my back out."

Pros: "my brand new luggage was completely ripped."
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!"
Pros: "We boarded and left on time. Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "They only allow 7kg carry on which forced us to check 2 bags @ $30 each. It's just to extract money. It looked like a reasonable fare but by the time we paid fees, seats and luggage, another airline would be a better choice. They chatged us a $60 "third party" between Queenstown and Cairns. Ridiculous...I won't fly with them again."
Pros: "To get a drink faster - preorder online when booking"
Cons: "$15 per kilogram charge for over weight luggage is a rip off"
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"
Cons: "Departing with 2 hour delay was unacceptable. Had to purchase a new ticket on a different airline."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Delayed more than 1hr"
Pros: "Kind employees."

Cons: "Need to include luggage fee on price."
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: "i would never travel to jetstar again they discriminate people we are indian we had some carry on bags they charge us extra they didm check any body els"
Pros: "Quick and efficient. Crew was great."
Cons: "Big discrimination singled us out from a line of 100 plus passengers and checked our carry on bag/s for weight. Air line representative said that we have 5 minutes to throw things or adjust bags or you r not going or pay 50 dollars each which we paid. These bags were the same we got from Sydney. We were on vacation and these guys ruined it. We definitely need to file complaint to some agency for not checking any one else carry on in that line except ours. Many passengers had heavy bags than ours. Pls do not recommend this jet star to anyone."
Pros: "There was a security incident at airport. Jet star counter staff was aware of this, but still close the counter and left about a dozen passengers stranded in Bali overnight. The staff was rude and terrible, at first saying it was our fault for not checking in online (not true)"
Cons: "Horrible airline no wonder comedians on NZ and OZ make fun of this airline."
Pros: "Exactly at time"
Pros: "Timely, warm friendly crew, comfortable seating"

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."
Pros: "The staff were very good."
Cons: "I booked a seat and did not get the seat l had booked."
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: "Excellent value"
Pros: "Speed of boarding (using front and back doors is brilliant!). Quality of airplane, crew and facilities is all first rate."
Pros: "Was on time and I personally did not run into any problems."
Cons: "wish flights could be like ten mins from aussie to NZ.... :-)"
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."
