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?!

Excellent 10.0

Pros: Good price, nice flight.

Cons: Waited a very long time to get off the plane & be shuttled to the terminal - 20-30 minutes. Flight attendants shouldn't have to go all the way up front or to the back to bring me a cup of tap water. They could have a pitcher or bottle handy for those not purchasing drinks or food.

Good 6.0

Pros: Extremely friendly staff. Smoothe flight!

Cons: Seats were quite crammed resulting in an uncomfortable 5 hour flight with no entertainment. There were no complimentary snacks or drinks like on most flights. Everything had a price tag. I had to ask for a complimentary glass of water.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: City of Yulara had a city wide communications failure. Other airlines had backup plans to get passengers out with a manual procedure. Jetstar didn't have a manual process and failed to get us on the plane. I missed my connection and they didn't help with my lost ticket. I ended up buying a new international ticket.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Absolutely nothing - Airbus 320 was the worst plane I have flown. Seats felt like leather wrapped around a piece of wood. A total joke!

Cons: I checked in for our flight the night before on the Jetstar mobile site which apparently didn’t work properly. It had no option to add checked baggage or to pay for checked baggage. Though we were able to “check in” online it did not email us the boarding passes. Since we did not receive the passes we made sure we arrived at the airport early to sort out the issue. We arrived almost 3 hours before our flight and attempted to complete the process. After waiting in line and spending another 10 minutes trying to sort the issue with the representative, she informed us that since it was less than 2 hours before the flight (which it wasn’t) we would have to pay 100 instead of the standard 34. She said “If you had been there 2 hours before the flight you would only pay 34”, at which point I pointed to the clock. Even though it was still over 2 hours before the flight she said “the computer won’t let me change it so there is nothing I can do.” No supervisor was “available”. Since they were holding our tickets and bags ransom we paid it. This was a total rip-off scam. I am perfectly willing to pay the 34 since it is correct but I am not willing to pay their extorted 100. I would sincerely appreciate any help with this matter.

Pros: The times were good for me. I was able to maximize my time in Cairns whilst getting back to work on Monday. I paid extra for the legroom. The additional room was excellent. More room than I have had on other major airlines. The slight staff was extremely friendly.

Cons: 5 hours is the longest flight I would take. Lack of enterainment is the major reason why. I think that they should supply at least free water, tea and coffee

Cons: Extra fees for everything! Didn't expect to have to pay so much for luggage. Next time I won't be fooled by the low airfare.

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.
