FAQs for Booking Flights to Melbourne from Cairns
Book cheap flights from Cairns to Melbourne (return)
Pros: I do believe that you get what you pay for, so I didn't mind the minimal level of service. The flight was on time. Check in was easy and efficient. The crew was pleasant and helpful.
Cons: This is a problem not confined to Jetstar, but which affects the industry as a whole. Why do the board sick passengers? There was a man seated two rows behind us who coughed and wheezed the whole way from Cairns to Melbourne. He couldn't clear his lungs. He had no business on a plane infecting the rest of us.
Cons: Good seat on Virgin VA1 51H and lucky for me there's no one seated beside me I had two seats all to myself. They run out of chicken and had to settle for vege curry which was ok. Purchased the wifi the entire flight which was awesome.
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.

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