Cons: "15 hour flight and the crew walked up and down the isle every 3-4 minutes shining a flashlight in your face and over all the seats.

All we were offered was a $24 gift voucher! That would get you a coffee and maybe a sandwich if you are lucky!"

Pros: "People were nice, and hoarding and disembarking was efficient."

Cons: "Loved every bit"
Pros: "did not load bags"
Cons: "did not load bags and didnt tell us. we had to find out ourselves and then missed our connection because they were soooooooooo slow doing paperwork. they only had an agent who wasnt that interested. Godd luck with getting any compensation!! Virgin's response was that this is normal and some flights have too much weight so not all bags are loaded and they dont tell the people concerned"

Cons: "I was offered a seat near an exit door on the proviso I would help people in an emergency. I assumed this was because I am about 2 metres tall with my shoes on i.e. bit hard not to notice when I am at the counter. I actually got given a seat in Row 25 on an Airbus 321, which is the row in front of the spacious row 26, and row 25 has less kneeroom than the ordinary rows. Uncomfortable trip"

We only flew virgin to get a direct flight but will change our holiday destination to fly Qantas in future"
Pros: "Cheap - perhaps too cheap."
Cons: "The fact that the food doled out was so small as to be insulting (a hummus pita bread that was in a plastic container actually small enough to fit in your hand); coupled with the fact that to eat actual food or have a drink one had to pay additional. No headphones; poor entertainment choices."
Cons: "Extra luggage charges for a children's stroller."
Cons: "Difficulty in correcting name on ticket"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Left late."
Cons: "there were not enough desks to check in at brisbane so many people missed there connecting flights. I flew with Delta and the process was much easier. Simply just dropped my bags off.

Pros: "I was very pleased and will continue to book with you."
Cons: "The PRICE!!!! with my favourite airline"
Cons: "Flight to go on time"
Pros: "The flight was during very bad weather and the pilots did a great job of keeping us informed and feeling safe."
Cons: "Due to the weather snacks were handed out but no water. Water used to be provided in single serves. As it is now poured into cups it was not provided on the flight. This seems like cost saving that is unacceptable to customers paying the same price with no access to a drink on the flight."
Pros: "The service was good even for such a short flight (20 mins)"
Cons: "Was an old aircraft so the interior could do with updating"
Pros: "The sense of really flying!"

Cons: "Rang 6 hours in advance to say miss a fight from Brisbane to Adelaide due to flooding in mount isa bus delayed for 3 hours and was only let know 20 minutes after bus was suppose to leave charleville . Would have been nice to get a credit."

Cons: "Better maintenance"
Pros: "Wont be travelling again with Jetstar"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 6 hours without compenstauion"
Cons: "Delayed so long."
Cons: "Business class seats are too close together to accommodate recline. Results in a rude shock when the person in front of you reclines their seat."
Pros: "It was a routine flight experience"
Cons: "The flight was half an hour late arriving"
Pros: "The boarding"
Cons: "I would like have a blanket and also one free coffee"
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Cons: "It was 1 hr delayed then when boarded there was some technical fault and we were left boarded with door open for about an hour. There was no offer of water or any drink. Seats I didn’t find comfortable. The cabin had significant rattle. Overall a very poor experience in today’s day and age."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and great collection of entertainment even tho had pay"
Cons: "Checking process in Denpasar was really bad. Had to wait almost 45 min at the counter even tho I had all the visa documents. Lack of knowledge of the ground staff of Jetstar. They need to get trained well."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Free food or water"
Pros: "the crew was patient and supportive (both flight and ground crew)."
Cons: "the temperature could have been warmer."
Pros: "The crew heard this person carrying on and did nothing"
Cons: "Another passenger was rude and disrespectful to personal space in my seating"
Pros: "Crew was lovely. Very polite and friendly especially after a quick turnaround and late flights."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "The crew is beautifull"
Cons: "The time schedule"
Pros: "New and clean aircraft Great staff/crew"
Pros: "Efficient on time"
Cons: "One young cabin crew member was very polite and welcoming - ? Angela The other older woman would not even acknowledge me or say hello / goodbye despite me saying hello"
Pros: "Chic muffin"
Pros: "The food was decent, plane was delayed and we flew business. It would’ve been good if they brought over some more drinks during the delay. Maybe they should’ve started preparing the supper meals on the ground too so they were ready to go when we finally took off just because it was a red eye flight of just 5 hours and it would have made much more sense to allow us more sleep time."
Cons: "The seats in business are totally weird. There is a metal foot rest that’s quite common in premium economy but the stretch seemed very short. I’m a short guy and I found my feet hanging over this bar which was uncomfortable. Also the pitch of the seat and short seat made both my partner and I slide down the seat. Perhaps the seats Jet star selects for its business could have calf rests that are located higher up so our legs are elevated more like in a chaise lounge or hammock for don’t slide down. The absolute worst thing about Jetstar flights are the passengers. The lowest common denominator Australians book budget airlines (especially Jetstar) and they rush the gate, over pack their 7kg of carryon, they are rough and loud and have little control of their children. They don’t know the difference beteeen inside and outside voices and speaking to someone face to face instead of shouting from a distance. Perhaps Jetstar should have a flying etiquette email and in seat card to remind people of how to behave. One braided head wench was berating the poor guy checking tickets at the gate who asked her to finish her water as a condition of EVERY AIRLINE and AIRPORT. He didn’t deserve her uneducated rudeness."
Pros: "Good smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed getting away"
Pros: "It took off and landed"
Cons: "Rude Jetstar staff at Coolingatta found we had 4 items weighing 15.5 kg instead of 14 and wanted to charge us $60 to load a bag on plane. Last Jetstar flight for me"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment facilities or capabilities"
Pros: "Overall experience very good"
Cons: "All goid"
Pros: "no concerns - had a seat free next to me which made it a pretty perfect flight"
Pros: "Modern aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no reason at all. Rude staff. Forced a domestic flight to land/take off at an international terminal so we had to go through customs control before taking off and after arrival. Pay some more money and fly Qantas or anything but awful Jetstar..."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and next available was nearly 4hrs later and left late! And then they have the gall to tell you to board quickly. Emails all about trying to frighten you into paying for extra luggage and sell you mediocre food and pay for a seat allocation."
Cons: "Appalling service got a text about 20 hours before departure cancelling the flight. Alternatives totally unsuitable. 1am or 5 am when I had a daytime flight"
Pros: "Friendly staff and on time."
Cons: "Child behind sitting on floor banging seat and loud devices being used with no ear phones so couldn’t rest"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The 6 hour delay. The price of food"
Cons: "How close the seats are."
Pros: "It was a quick flight, managed to leave 10min earlier than scheduled. Pretty smooth."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, felt very straight and no real headrest; even though it was a new plane. Quite a lot of families with young children flying, it was the last domestic flight out so expected it to be less children. It was a bit noisy at times."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable Baggage rules - I overpaid for baggage in advance Carry on weight should be reconsidered (limit should increase)"
Pros: "The price of food etc. The norm!"
Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Staff unfriendly, it helpful... more interested in sell you more things than those of us that have bought tickets. They need to smile a bit more"
Pros: "My seat 12F...."
Pros: "the cost"
Cons: "the fact that my flight was pushed back. no big deal, but would have been nice if it was on time."
Pros: "We got everything we paid for"
Cons: "Some of the cabin crew including the manager need to lighten up and smile occasionally"
Cons: "The staff were quite rude I asked for 3 hours for my screen to be fixed so I could sleep. A hostess stepped on my foot an swore and did not apologise or acknowledge anything. The seats were cramped. I will not be flying with Jetstar on an international flight again or local if I can avoid it."
Cons: "Walk from gate 49 to closest exit doors 1.9km, no travellators. Are you kidding me? Never again."
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "You should be able to offer at least some chips or something small for free"
Pros: "it was only a short flight"
Pros: "Only good point was we were able to book thru KAYAK for a reasonable price."
Cons: "flight was delayed which appears the norm with Jetstar.!!! Ridiculous walking distance to get to and from at Melbourne end!!!! Pity the elderly and infirm!!! You get nothing for your money EVERYTHING is EXTRA cost and expensive. From baggage to basic snacks, if you are silly enough to buy. Not even a radio outlet. Seats are hard and uncomfortable, but the "icing on the cake", is the removal of the pockets behind the seats to make the leg room look more, so you now have nowhere to put a water bottle or a drink down. JETSTAR/QANTAS should be very (proud) ashamed of themselves. By the way has anyone noticed the prospective destruction of the iconic Kangaroo symbol on QANTAS planes known all over the world as AUSTRALIAN, that the Irish CEO of Qantas is happily removing at enormous cost, over the next months to be replaced by an indescribable symbol, that is so similar to CHINA AIRLINES, it is not funny. Takeover in the wind?No wonder QANTAS is so expensive and its cheaper arm JETSTAR are cut to the bone. Staff can only do so much."
Pros: "The cabine crew"
Cons: "40 mn delay on a 3h45 flight is a little bit too much. Airplane not really comfortable and noisy. But that is what low cost means, right?!"
Pros: "We did reach our destination on time"
Cons: "no food or beverages, including water, provided without a fee. Baggage costs were nearly $50 per bag. Impossible to sleep on Overnight flight partly due to constant flight attendants moving cart down aisles. Also did not turn down lights to allow sleeping . No pillows or blankets provided. Minimal conveniences necessary considered standard on other airlines not provided. Would never fly this airline again. Traveled with three people. None of us slept at all. Seats constantly hit by people in seats behind ours. 9 hour flight, $10 to watch a movie which was interrupted by flight attendants. Longest flight of our lives"
Cons: "No refund or credit given for cancelling the flight. Why would anyone cancel their flight so Jetstar can make more money from others?"
Pros: "The flight was okay, as usual. You get what you pay for with cheap flights. There wasn't much leg room in economy, but that was to be expected. The staff were good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, without any explanation as to why. This made it very difficult to fulfill work requirements upon landing. I would have appreciated some kind of explanation / apology. Also, I don't like the in-flight gambling ("raffle") option. Jetstar hands out scratchie tickets for $5.00 a pop. The odds of winning (the car) are ludicrous and gambling is a serious problem in Victoria. So, I don't think it is appropriate. The in-flight food was absurdly expensive. Finally - and, perhaps, most importantly - the flight wasn't smooth. It didn't appear to be due to turbulence, but (rather) the pilot / s. The plane kept dipping up and down, making us feel sick."
