Pros: "Good food and entertainment"
Cons: "Timely"

Cons: "They didn’t leave my food. They took it away."

Pros: "Great flight. Efficient and great service."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable.. glad it was only a few hours."

Pros: "NOTHING - THE TRIP WAS A NIGHTMARE AND I WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH QANTAS AGAIN IF I CAN HELP IT. QANTAS WAS ALWAYS MY FIRST CHOICE BUT I WILL GO THE LONG WAY ROUND TO AVOID CREW & CONDITIONS LIKE THAT AGAIN. NO PILLOW,BLANKET OR TOILET PACK AND THEY RAN OUT OF FOOD. I WILL TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THIS!"
Cons: "Dark haired male crew member extremely rude except to two in row I58 & J58 who got 5 beers before departure,Food before everyone else, a gift pack from 1st class given before landing. I was refused extra bottled water. No entertainment the whole flight, Loud buzzing in galley 60H entire trip."

Pros: "all good"
Cons: "all good"

Cons: "Boarding is very haphazard, not according to seat numbers, no pre boarding for small babies. Flight attendant spilled juice on me, very unprofessional."

Pros: "The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I booked through Budget Air and was initially online able to confirm seats and meals for my husband and I online with Qantas easily. Months out my flight was cancelled and I was rebooked onto a later flight that would have made us miss all of our transfers to our honeymoon on Fitzroy Island. Because I had booked through 'a 3rd party' Qantas refused to assist me. I managed to convince budget air to change our flights. We were moved to a jetstar flight from Melbourne to cairns. I had to confirm that this had occurred and go through multiple people online to reallocate seats and food options for my husband and myself again. Only my luggage allowance was carried across to jetstar and neither of our meal allowances were. When it came to online check-in with jetstar I could not check my husband in online only myself. I spoke to multiple people online who all confirmed they didn't know why or there was no problem and we should just present ID and check in in person. When we got to the airport Qantas had not transferred the e-ticket code across for my husband's booking and this is why we could not check him in online. The jetstar staff had to try to get his original booking code from Qantas. As it turned out I had to original booking code through budget Air in my hand and had to assert this information to staff. Flying back we were able to check in online fine with Qantas. Our boarding passes printed different sizes but did not present a problem when we dropped off our luggage. When we sent to check in the staff member couldn't get the smaller pass to read and my husband had to assert that he also had it on his phone. Despite all of my online conversations the aisle seat was allocated to me and not my husband who required it because of a medical condition and the flight was 30min delayed. We won't be traveling with Qantas or jetstar, or booking through budget Air again."

Cons: "Flight attendant kept forgetting to turn the entertainment back on after an announcement. Flight attendant sounded unprofessional over PA Would like more snacks - savoury and sweet, instead of just savoury. Snack was not sufficient for a 3 hour flight landing at 9pm. Had to wait on plane while airbridge was brought to the plane so everyone could disembark - “they weren’t expecting the flight!!” Whole flight still waiting for luggage after 55 minutes of standing at carousel and only after 55 minutes an announcement to say handlers are tending to a departure and we have to wait another 10 minutes - a whole hour for luggage - take carry on only next time!!!! 4 flights collecting luggage from the one carousel!!"

Cons: "Boarding is a gong show. Not very clear signage for premium line so there’s always a ton of people jamming up the queue"

Cons: "The food was terrible."

Pros: "Really nothing."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and people were standing in line for ages before they started to let passengers board. Once boarded, flight was delayed over an hour so we just sat there on the plane. We were sitting in the last row where extremely cold air was just blowing directly at us the entire flight! We asked a few members of the crew including the manager and were told that that's what happens when you're close to the door. It was the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE flight of my life!!! I will never fly Qantas again. They were a complete nightmare and definitely the low point of our wonderful vacation."

Cons: "The entertainment on board was really disappointing"

Pros: "Crew was nice, food was plentiful and good"
Cons: "Movie selection not currant enough, my daughter flew the same route on another carrier and entertainment was much better. Difficult to hear my program with the earphones provided."

Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."

Pros: "We have travelled a few times by Qantas because we come from Australia. Their planes are safe. Our plane got delayed ( and this is not the first time we have had this with Qantas), and then we missed our connecting flight. The ground staff were not helpful at all. Our connecting flight was with LAn airlines and LAN were very cooperative and gave us another later flight though they were not obligated to do so. Qantas are generally too much by the book and things always go wrong. I still use them but it is a risk that I need to consider more next time. LAN/Latam helped us out because they are more customer oriented. Anyway, good luck"
Cons: "Qantas are too stingy and not customer focussed. We missed our flight due to their plane late by 6 hours and they did not offer assistance even though we missed our connecting flight. The other carrier helped us out, phew!"

Pros: "fewer rows of seats in my section upstairs quiet - no children darkness for the overnight flight"
Cons: "would have preferred more foreign movies - with English subtitles - for the more discerning movie watcher - most movies were populist rubbish"

Cons: "I hate the ground crew.. with bad behavior and uncooperative- plane no entertainment.. you must used app with your telephone"

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."

Cons: "No I flight entertainment or chargers for phone"

Pros: "Very rude. Not professional. Slow service"
Cons: "Should have more knowledge and give effecient service"

Pros: "Felt Cheap"
Cons: "Felt Cheap. Not even an entertainment center and no one on flight could make the app download or work."

Pros: "Flight was on time, no charge for checked baggage, a sandwich and juice were served, and it was all for the price of a budget carrier."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was not working. Then again, who expected an in-flight entertainment system at this price point?!"

Pros: "Friendly attendants and they offer food - just a sandwich and pretzels but enough."

Pros: "The service on board was excellent and the flight atendants really nice"

Pros: "Crew was good, and water was served frequently."
Cons: "Got out late from Sydney and got stuck in a holding pattern in Bali. We had to take a shuttle to and from the plane was was cramped with screaming children. Due to the delay we got stuck at immigration for 50min. We weren’t told about the entertainment until already on the plane when we couldn’t download the app."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No entertainment no food or drinks"

Pros: "flight crew, food service"
Cons: "no leg room, limited complimentary beverages"

Cons: "There was a lot of confusion for people trying to use the kiosks to check in. Finally a representative stood by the machine and told people not to bother, just queue up for the desk to get boarding passes and drop of luggage , which took for ever. Once on the plane the seats are very cramped."

Pros: "Boarding in Sydney was easier than anticipated. Crew were good"
Cons: "Stop off in Darwin? Really? Star Alliance is a bit of a joke-poor coordination between VA and Air NZ. No lounge access given we’re Air NZ elite members"

Pros: "Everything from check in to in-plane service was first class."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To start things off the women at the ticket counter to check us in was the rudest woman I have ever dealt with whilst traveling. I wish I had her name. It seemed as if she'd had something against us, this was in Brisbane by the way."

Cons: "Baggage charge of $70 Australian dollars was an unpleasant surprise. Had 3 bags. All other airlines on this trip went by weight, not number of bags and charged zero."

Pros: "They provide check in luggage and serve free snack , no extra charge like the other domestic flight. The air ticket is fare ,not more expensive than the other domestic airlines"

Pros: "overall excellent service"

Pros: "crews cheerful"

Cons: "I just don't like Jetstar. An airline of pick pockets, and crooks. You're best to only bring your toothbrush, and nothing else."

Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Crew didn't come around enough with water"

Pros: "Loved we departed on time & landed a little early"
Cons: "That we had to abort a landing & circle round to try again."

Pros: "We paid for extra legroom seats because we were so uncomfortable on the flight up to Cairns. It was worth the money to be comfortable. As it happens it was an older plane with more room anyway."
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Very cold inside the cabin , they make it so , why I don’t understand"

Pros: "no concerns - had a seat free next to me which made it a pretty perfect flight"

Pros: "We were surprised when we boarded the plane that we were flying with the new dremliner. The boarding was extremely efficient. They provided us with free movie too on board."

Cons: "No entertainment at all, not even a app"

Pros: "Safe airline. Kind staff."
Cons: "We could not check in online and waited over an hour to check in then due to our luggage had to wait in a separate line to pay. We arrived not knowing this is a budget airline and you have to pay for everything. Due to weight restrictions they forced us to check our carryon luggage for $100 AUD per item. They said their website tells you of this fee but 3rd party sites, such as Kayak, does NOT upon booking. We were very frustrated to be paying such a large fee to check our carry on luggage. Kayak should tell you about these hidden fees upon booking as the fees were in the fine print AFTER booking and we simply did not read the fine print. Very disappointed in the lack of communication from Kayak. Entertainment cost an additional $10 and their choices were limited, food and drinks also cost $ on the plane."

Pros: "Flights today on time"
Cons: "Never in 30+ years of flying have I not been able to ticket both legs of a trip at the start, especially both legs on same airline. We had to pay $60 AUS to Check my daughter’s carry on at the gate because her backpack was over 7 kilos, with no option to have it count toward our overall max weight. Also had 4 hour layover but could not do the manual transfer to next leg until 3 hours before flight, putting a dent into our layover plans. I will avoid using this airline due to hassles in the future."

Pros: "Getting off at the other end (eventually)"
Cons: "Where do we start....didn't realise you have to pay extra for a bag when traveling overseas so spent just on $300 before even getting the boarding pass. One hour late leaving Perth, no apology or explanation provided. They wouldn't take exact money for a Solo, only credit card. Knees planted uncomfortably in the seat in front for the entire trip. Didn't hand out immigration cards claiming they'd run out.."

Cons: "Not one of the better airlines."

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"

Pros: "Air conditioning comfortable"
Cons: "Will not travel again on jetstar as seating is very uncomfortable..not good for aussies probably suitable for asians who have shorter legs."

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: "Although the AirPort was struggling with an electricity problem, the waiting didn't take that long. They only had 2 people working with tablets instead of the computers with scanners. So i commend them on still getting everyone done so fast! The plane ride was just basic,"
Cons: "I couldn't recline my seat, probably due to the fact I was located at the emergency exit of the wing. So sleeping was soooo uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The plane was freezing, and there were no TVs for entertainment or blankets to help mitigate the cold"

Pros: "Swift check in and boarding and exit."
Cons: "Terrible seating. I'm 6ft 1 and I felt cramped and couldn't get comfortable. I was constantly kicking the person in front of me in the back and under the seat."

Pros: "Everything, except luggages were not included"
Cons: "We had to pay for any entertainment"

Pros: "Excellent boarding process."
Cons: "No drinks or snacks"

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: "Terrible customer service, terrible checkin agent, terrible seats, no entertainment"

Cons: "Seats did not recline. Only water provided. It's the greyhound of flights"

Cons: "Jetstar is the worst airline around. Its absolutely ridiculous that they charge you 10X more for checked luggage at airport check-in. When I booked my flight 5 months in advance, I didn't see the option of buying luggage (and also didn't think it mattered at the time because normal airlines like Delta, United, etc. charge the same rate no matter when you decide). Thank goodness I knew to buy luggage before getting to the airport but was still charge $60 AUD (when it would have only been $35 if I did it when I originally booked). And it would have been over $150 if I waited for the airport. WHO THE F CARES WHEN I DECIDE TO CHECK A BAG??? YOU STILL HAVE TO GO TO THE COUNTER NO MATTER WHAT. Jetstar is such a low class airline. Then they wanted to weigh my carry-on which was 9kilo (2k over the limit)... full of all camera gear. The guy literally started yelling at me, made me feel so uncomfortable, and my eyes began to water. He was screaming to another woman in front of everyone that I was WAY over the weight limit and was to be charged $210. He was extremely aggressive. (This was a moment I wish I would have whipped out my phone and took a video... would have gone viral). The woman wasn't any better either. At first she was really aggressive and I hadn't said a word. I just watched them react as if I brought a weapon. She raised her voice at me yelling about the stupid luggage being too heavy.... and at that point I told her that she needed to lower her voice and talk to me like a human (let alone a customer). At that point she did realize that she was being ridiculous and lowered her voice (I might even give her the benefit of the doubt and say the guy may have rattled her). I explained to her that I was carrying expensive camera gear and batteries (which you cannot put in checked luggage) and that I'd be happy to put it in the checked bag (especially since I had extra kilos that I hadn't used). She said I would need to sign a waiver exempting them from being responsible if anything was stolen from my bag. I politely said absolutely not. If you cannot get my luggage to my destination safely then I would happily not get on the plane and walk over to the Air New Zealand desk and buy a ticket. At that point she looked me up and saw how much I flew with them and then decided to let me on the plane. Which mind you, the plane was 75% EMPTY. After all that. Geez. Never again Jetstar. Never again."

Pros: "Few crew members who went out of their way to ease our frustration"
Cons: "Surprise expenses Most people who buy directly through the Jetstar website add baggage allowance. You don't get this option when buying on Kayak. Poor connection and wait time The long layover was annoying, and proved costly, too. You need to buy a Visa in Australia if your layover is longer than 8 hours. Kayak doesn't warn you about this, and so you have to collect your baggage, go through customs, and buy a Visa. In sum, Kayak shouldn't allow you to purchasing strings-attached tickets from this airline."

Pros: "I got to my destination with no mishaps."
Cons: "JetStar cuts corners and upcharges for everything! On our long international flights, meals were not included. Anything you ask for will be an additional charge. Also, they cancelled our flight and we didn't find out until we got to the airport. This caused us to have to wait for a shuttle for 45 minutes, then had to travel back to the hotel at 5am. Missed our oceanfront suite that we already paid for because of the cancellation. On our honeymoon no less!"

Pros: "On checking in, they charged us a penalty fee, and then our flight got cancelled at the last minute without any options to get back to the city in time for work. Had to book a last minute flight with a different airline and couldn't get luggage back in time to take it along!"

Cons: "Surcharge up to $160 if exceeding 7kg of all your carry on bags (including personal item). Rude employees relating this info to me and my husband."

Cons: "Ordered food online. Would be better just buying when on flight. Egg sandwich both flights. No choice."

Pros: "I chose Jetstar for their price and the timing of flight. Living in Canada I was not familiar with the airline."
Cons: "At check-in we were forced to pay an extra $50. to check our carryon bags as there is a ridiculous 7kg limit for an international flight. Really?! This limit should be made clear before booking, next to the flight fee. Then we watched as people entered the plane with carryon that was clearly too big and heavy to be within the limit. They had obviously checked in on-line to avoid the fees. A lesson that encourages dishonesty. Really?! Then Jetstar wanted $4. for a cup of coffee in-flight. Really! And there is no alternative, other than going without, as no drinks can be brought on board given that security check is right at the gate. Crew were friendly and professional at all times and I felt sorry for them as they are the front-line for these ridiculous policies."

Pros: "Not as cramped as I thought it would be."
Cons: "They served some people food prior to anyone else that somehow ordered in advance, I had to ask for food and then dig through a menu that was hidden in the seat in front of me and the food that was offered was different than the other people."

Cons: "Flight was changed to earlier flight - was guaranteed a window and did not get a window; had to change from the domestic to international terminal and then had to go through CUSTOMS for this domestic flight because it came out of international terminal adding time to my travel. Almost lost my luggage. Carousel took forever to retrieve luggage. Flight left 50 minutes late. Reduced airport staff = 80 people not checked in by 10 minutes till boarding. Everyone was going through security when the flight was calling "final boarding". Poor entertainment and food selection. A lot of Asians were on this flight and no staff member spoke Asian for those who didn't speak English - which is strange for an Asia predominant airline. This led to some confusion between the crew and passengers delaying departure due to head count issues."

Pros: "Had a seatbelt"
Cons: "Seat did not recline. Crew said was broken. Second crew said didn't recline because near exit. Think should be informed of this when allocated seat"

Cons: "The woman at the check-in desk was rude and seemed to delight in the fact that she could charge me a LOT of money for my checked bag. (I thought I had reserved a baggage allowance online but apparently hadn't. Instead of at least trying to seem like she was sorry to have to charge me such an exorbitant fee, she was smirking the whole time, as though she was getting some sort of commission on it.) Everything else was more or less standard for a budget airline. My experience with the woman at the check-in desk, and the ridiculous size of the fee--more than I paid for my ticket--have ensured that I will never fly Jetstar again."

Cons: "I thought my ears were deceiving me when they mentioned 3 AUD for lavatory use! Inhumane! And that's on top of having to pay for my check-in luggage. I felt completely dooped! Traveling through the outback, I had no scale, no wifi, etc. And after paying an exorbitant amount, we were STILL given hassles for our carry-on.. Apparently if you "wear" your luggage on your body, it's free of charge (but on aggregate, it still adds to weight & balance of the plane). And how this all contributes to fast handling is beyond me. Moronic rules! Of all the great times I had in Australia, JetStar was the only utter disappointment I had to endure! Never again!"

Pros: "Hm. Just thinking...... nothing come to my mind. Probably I can say they are very consistent and always trying hard to give you trouble and rip you off."
Cons: "I was on 3 day vacation booked to fly off at 7am from Sydney to reach Cairns at 10am and return after 2 days taking 7:15pm flight to reach Sydney around 10pm. This will be complete 3 days plan in Cairns. They delayed morning 7am flight by 4 hours. We went to the airport at 4am and sitting there till 11am. They did not even provide food coupon in spite of me approaching supervisor. Reached Cain at 3pm and by the time I picked my car and ready for sight seeing time is over and entire city is quite. We lost one day. Return fight at 7:45 cancelled and they moved us to 12 noon. We lost that day as well. Very bad baggage service."

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: "The whole experience was good. It's better than most budget airlines"
Cons: "The movie selection wasn't geared to someone like me. I paid for the entertainment pack but ended up watching reruns of TVs shows I'd already seen."

Pros: "Nothing. Thought we had booked Qantas and got Jetstar"
Cons: "That the flight ran late That the menu is disgusting. Nothing fresh. No originaliry"

Cons: "Flight was actually Jetstar so the service was worse and no meals were included on a long flight."

Pros: "We can't remember his name but the cabin crew leader was excellent with a great sense of humour. He really "made" the trip. He was also firm but in a polite way when someone stood up before they should have. We didn't have anything to eat so can't comment on the food. Carolyn and Andrew Dowling"

Pros: "No problems with the flight. Plane was fine."
Cons: "The luggage issues for this airline can be complicated. It was difficult to tell from our online booking whether luggage was included (depends on your fare type). After considerable research we found that it wasn't. The price to add it, which you could do on line, was fair. However, when we found there were no lockers at the airport to store our extra baggage, we were almost hit with the outrageous rate of $15 per kilo for all the weight that we hadn't already contracted for. BE SURE you purchase the weight you need in advance or you will have major problems at the airport. They do have scales at check-in to weigh your stuff yourself in advance, and they didn't weight our carry on baggage. Customer service in Sydney wasn't very good. Staff seemed kinda cranky and unwilling to be very helpful."

Cons: "The flight was delayed then check in staff were rude"

Pros: "The crew on board was good."
Cons: "The station manager in cairns made my fiancé and I buy tickets out of Indonesia within 30 days. We always stay two months by buying a visa on arrival and extending. Why the heck would I had to buy a ticket out in 30 days if I can extend my visa? I have flown in and out of bali 10 times. 5 on jetstar. Never have I been questioned about an outbound flight. Let Indonesian immigration make me buy a flight. I believe it was jetstars way to try to sell tickets. I ended up buying on air Asia and will not fly jetstar again if I have a choice."

Pros: "The plane was nice and I was comfortable for the most part in coach. Which is where I always fly. The leg room was good and I had ample storage overhead and below the seat in front of me. The staff were nice. The co-pilot was very polite."
Cons: "At the end of the day you don't want the customer thinking....geez, for the cost I ended up paying, I could have bought the higher priced ticket with _____ airline. My opinion, this would not be my choice of business models. - Some reasonable amount of luggage should be included past the carry on. - I would not charge separately for blankets and entertainment. If I did it would be such a nominal fee that everyone would just do it. - I feel the same way for snacks, water, soda, coffee, etc. Some appropriate fee that is not a major upcharge. I think from a customer satisfaction standpoint I would charge $25 more on each ticket and provide more without all the upcharges. It just feels better."

Cons: "First of all, while booking my flight online, the site canceled my transaction 3 times because the price had risen up while I was completing the forms. I ended up paying more than the initial price. Also, the site never asked me about my bagages and when I tried adding one, it wouldn't let me. Therefore, I figured that it wasn't required to mark how many bags I was checking in and that it will be done once I get to the airport. Biggest mistake! Not only did we need to pay 50$ for a bag of 15kg and 15$ for every kg over this limit, but the employee at the check-in counter was the ruddest person and was treating us as if we we're stupid. Indeed, I tried explaining to her the situation and how the website never asked for our bags but she kept saying how it was all our fault and didn't sympathize one bit. Worst service I've ever received in an airport."
