Bull. Many other passengers had plenty of larger and heavier baggage of which I pointed out. Matthew (at the gate) mentioned it didn't matter, because I was the one being selected, (in other words, I was the one that looked most like a tourist). I had a very light LV carry on duffle bag. People were carrying rolling luggage.... While the payment didn't bother me, what bothered me was the fact of having to put my luggage understand. Seats in plane were ridiculously uncomfortable.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Worst airline I have ever used. The crew of the actual flight was fine but the people working for the airline in the terminal were very rude. Unfortunately this cheap airline doesn't include any baggage with their ticket prices (which I have never heard of before) and I was extremely surprised when we had to pay $150 for our regular checked luggage that we have flown with for free all over Australia from the US on 5 flights so far. That I can deal with but then the real fun became when we were on line to board the plane and the in terminal crew came out with scales and pulled a nice little scam of charging to check in any carry on luggage (which the woman at the check in counter said was ok to bring on board) for $50 a bag which even included a small suitcase that fit easily in the overhead compartment. If I had only spent the extra $20 or so to use a real airline from the beginning I would have saved $250 on the baggage costs that Jetstar scammed from me. Never ever again will I use this airline and I will be writing them this same email. Make sure you all read the fine print when booking this scam of an airline.

OK 4.0

Cons: We had a 4 hour layover in Melbourne and had to pick up our bags and recheck them but we couldn't check them in until 2 hours before our flight and there was a 145aud charge for excess weight they only a!low 15 kg virgin allows 23 and tiger air allows 20. I will not book on them again! They did not even offer water to me the attendants were too busy making sure everyone who had preorder got their order.

Excellent 8.6

Pros: Having flown budget airlines in several different countries it is well accepted that you get what you pay for. Jetstar is definitely a cheap, no frills flight but the seats are comfortable, the carry-on baggage allowance reasonable, and the extras not entirely outrageous. When needing to be budget conscious and able to travel light, this is definitely a good option.

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

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
