The flight itself was fine.

Purchase your luggage allowances with your airfare. There are two Tiger Airs, causing some confusion and resulting in us being unable to pay for luggage ahead of time. The longest line ever at check in, get a kiosk and boom, your line is cut in half. Luggage rates made this budget flight equal to what we would have paid for Qantas, with less of the headache.

Price. Crew were great.

Seat space is cramped for a flight anymore than an hour . I think its quiet dangerous on a long flight , given the prospect of deep vain thrombosous.

Got from point A to B early.

It's a nickel and dime discount airline. We will never take it again. Passengers should definitely read all the baggage rules prior to purchasing a ticket; we paid $180 in additional bag fees. There is a very strict 7kg carry-on rule. You have to buy everything in board, they will not allow you to take your coffee or hot food on board the plane.

Ticket price was cheap.

$60 to check a bag and you need to if it is over 7kg. They have scales at check in and boarding gate. Was not allowed to take coffee on board and when they offered some it turns out it's $4 per paper cup of it, tea is the same. No seat back pockets to put things in. Seats so thin you can feel everybody's knees from 3 rows behind you. I will never fly with Jet Star again. I will spend more on the ticket to not feel like I'm being robbed blind on the plane.

Jetstar is a budget airline in every way. There was no food, comfort, or entertainment on the flight. We mistakingly did not have prebooked baggage, and had to pay an arm and a leg to get our bags to Sydney. Avoid Jetstar at all costs. I have heard plenty of other horrible things from other customers.

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 email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
