Airline reviews

Pros: "Window seat on my own. Landed early."
Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."

Cons: "Qantas always gives great service"

Cons: "Qantas is always delayed leaving"

Pros: "The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi"
Cons: "Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member"

Pros: "All as expected."
Cons: "Crew could have been more pleasant."

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."

Cons: "Always a pleasure to fly with qantas"

Cons: "The seats were too narrow and uncomfortable"

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

Pros: "We eventually got to our destination safely although very stressed"
Cons: "The plane from Sydney to Brisbane was awful. The section where we were seated had a permanent cover over the windows, ours and others near us, over a large section. This was really claustrophobic. It was like being in a closed in tin can. It should be disclosed that the window seat is not a window seat so you have the option to change to somewhere else. The seats are really quite cramped. A huge delay"

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: "In flight wifi and entertainment didnt work"

Pros: "Qantas staff unfailingly helpful and courteous."
Cons: "A more suitable lunch that could be eaten more easily , the quiche in a fidley box and nothing to w eat it on was trying."

Pros: "Helpful staff, well informed"

Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."

Pros: "Pillow and blanket made the trip much for comfortable"

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."

Pros: "Entertainment for the kids Healthy food The crew were great and interactive"
Cons: "Too much pressure for the ears"

Cons: "Qantas mucked up my seating and then tried to tell me maybe it was just my use of the booking system."

Pros: "Everything was great - arrived early. Excellent service."

Pros: "good"

Pros: "Overall good flight and staff nice and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing comes,to mind"

Cons: "An hour late"

Pros: "Great entertainment and new release movies. Food was great"
Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"

Pros: "Thank you Qantas I enjoyed the flight, the service was excellent. Cabin crews were friendly. Overall excellent."
Cons: "There is nothing that I dislike."

Pros: "Business class seats are private and allow for lay flat sleeping"

Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I was not able to board the plane and was told that I needed to apply for ETA. I did and was not able to do it online. Then I needed to call the embassy about a required visa as a visitor. None of this was presented before. I have not traveled to Australia before, so I had no idea this needed to be done. As of now I am still at home trying to find a solution to this requirement."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."

Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."

Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."

Cons: "Hot food disgusting."

Pros: "I booked by flight last minute due to a family emergency overseas. As such, I arrived to the airport a little later than I should have, the passengers had boarded the flight. The ground crew couldn't have been nicer in expediting my boarding and getting me on the flight. I can't thank them enough. Top service. Thank you. The flight still arrived 25 min early after great snack and smooth flight."

Pros: "Arriving back in Australia"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late because there was a passenger on board sick they should never of been allowed to board the plane. This was very badly managed by the staff on the ground staff. Very poor leg room the rude passenger in the seats in front of us reclined right from take off to landing wa very hard to get out of our seat to stretch or go to the bathroom"

Pros: "the staff were exceptional. I was in a bright area trying to sleep. I had my beanie pulled over my eyes. the staff asked if they could suspend a blanket above my head between the two seats to shield the light."

Cons: "Could have used more leg room."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful food much better this leg although the scrambled eggs arent nice at all"
Cons: "The seat did not tilt back but was so happy not to be cramped it did not matter. Meant to tell crew before I left plane but forgot"

Cons: "Announce the app download well before boarding so that I can get it. I never had a chance"

Cons: "It would have been a normal trip but we were delayed about an hour in Cairns because the passenger count didn’t add up to what the computer said. This made it very tight to catch our next flight. Barely had time to use the bathroom."

Pros: "Crew great. Very grateful for the cuppa"

Cons: "I have no complaints."

Pros: "Nothing !!!!!!!"

Pros: "Good service, friendly staff. Amazing how fast they board a plane!"

Pros: "-Professional, clean. Staff seemed happy to be there. -Use of both front and rear boarding allows for faster departure."
Cons: "-Need clearer instructions or a crew member to direct passengers to front or back of plane. -In flight entertainment depends on predownload of an app."

Pros: "It was a full flight but take off and landing were on time and staff and service was good and friendly."

Pros: "Check in was easy and the flight was on time. Good service"

Cons: "Flight cancelled, then booked by Virgin without consultation, onto a flight via Sydney that would take 6 1/2 hrs to get there, had to request another flight but still lost most of the day of my holiday, plus left with many phone calls re change of rental car, arrival , parking bookings, and no compensation and then stress when I got to the airport and was told that despite being "booked " on the much later flight, now I might not actually have a seat. I had to wait while attendant at counter tried to find seats and only watch as they were taken by someone else several times. So unnecessarily stressful and misleading. Lost my original seats, had to sit separate from my companion, and no real concern by Virgin about their impact on customers' plans. Last time I flew, the plane was cancelled, and we had to wait hours for another one in the terminal, so I missed the body corporate meeting that was the ONLY reason I was flying to Brisbane, paying for overnight accommodation and car rental and flight and I MISSED it. Huge cost for NOTHING, as despite driving straight to the meeting, it was just finishing. Whilst at the airport trying to fly home, I heard another Virgin flight cancelled , again due to "unscheduled maintenance". Seems that maintenance and mechanical problems are common and way more common than they should be. So that is a big worry!"

Cons: "Lack of communication - flights to and from Brisbane to Sydney 2/3 hours late in departure."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Great plane, good service and attitude of the flight attendants."

Pros: "Boarding procedures were good, check in went smoothly."

Pros: "Easy bording process. Left early and smooth flight."

Pros: "Flight attendants recognized my discomfort, asked about pain. Gave me ice, pain medication and water for my toothache. Great job."
Cons: "The toothache."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant, courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Would have liked a little more to eat, especially with the early rise to get to the airport in time. Qantas serves breakfast."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Crying babies!"

Cons: "no entertainment only back lab was available long ques i only fly virgin at least 6 x times a year"

Pros: "Flight crew were lovely."
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: "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: "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!!!"

Pros: "Staff was courteous On time"
Cons: "We had to pay to check in our luggage Seats were uncomfortable Nothing to drink for free, coffee or water would Ben appreciated No entertainment"

Pros: "The women sitting next to us had on enough perfume to gag anyone. My wife doesn't swell to well, and it nearly made her vomit."

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: "Boarding was late and congested Not organized"

Cons: "All food and drink service needed to be purchased. Had an issue with a lost wallet left on the plane, and limited help in retrieving it."

Cons: "Impossible to sleep"

Pros: "Clean planes."
Cons: "Hidden last minute weight fees on carry ons. In our case an extra $360. This is apparently a common complaint. Terrible scam."

Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "There was a huge delay, all the flights I bypassed with Virgin because they didn't leave early enough left long before us. While we were waiting they didn't even post anything at the gate. Once on the plane the seats were among the tightest I have ever experienced. They even charge for coffee. I won't use them again if I have an option."

Pros: "Boarded on time"
Cons: "15 mins late departing"

Cons: "Kayak did not disclosed the price quoted did not include fees for luggage. I would never buy a ticket thru Kayak again."

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."

Cons: "$15 per kilogram charge for over weight luggage is a rip off"

Pros: "Fairly efficient, cheaper price."
Cons: "Had employee going down boarding line with a scale charging extra $50 if you were over their ridiculously low weight limit for a carry on bag. Had no problem with same bag on numerous other airlines."

Cons: "Delay"

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: "Was charged over $400 because I didn't know I had to add how many bags and how much weight when booking ahead of time, and had two large bags. Never use!!!"

Pros: "So many problems with them trying to add baggage fees at gate that there is nothing that can get me to fly Jet Star again. We were under the 7kg checkin bag requirements so they started weighing our personal items to put us over so they could charge another $50. The line got slowed to the point they had to stop this scam."

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

Pros: "I have used this airline several times for short (2h30) and long (8h) haul flights and they are just aweful. Only certain people get food (even on the long haul), horrible staff that look down on you and ignore you, uncomfortable seats that make you feel like a sardine. Just aweful"

Pros: "Won't book with jet star again"

Pros: "I have taken 2 Jetstar flights this week and both departed over an hour late ! Frustrating!"

Pros: "At Cairns they placed me on an earlier flight Thank you"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "No frills, clean, simple and basic"

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: "Speed and efficiency."
Cons: "Quality of food available for purchase on board."

Pros: "Fast check in process, fast boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Overpriced excess of luggage. Classic trick only used by the cheapest airline companies."

Cons: "Serve a hot pot pie without cutlery! Charge for coffee and pop, not even getting one free?"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "No entertainment"

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."

Cons: "2h delay"

Pros: "Nice new plane. On time. Infant travel cot can be checked for free."
Cons: "Turned up at the airport and they wanted $50 for the first 15 kg then $15 PER KILO for checked baggage. I had tried prepaying on my mobile phone and they wanted $50 plus a $25 service fee. Turns out if you use a laptop there is no additional $25 fee. Don't wait until you get to the airport to pay for checked baggage! Only free beverage is water. Soft drinks are charged for. No free pretzels or anything."

Pros: "Competitive price"
Cons: "Cramped and minimal service"

Pros: "The jetstar staff at check in counter were very helpful"

Pros: "Nothing"
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."
