Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Always on time, good range of movies/shows and free wifi"
Cons: "Long wait at the airport checkin, seat was so uncomfortable and paid drinks (including soft drink) after the first meal service... so odd!"

Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "No power at the seats USB or otherwise"
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Seating ok."
Cons: "The flight could have been better if there was entrainment on the Boeing 464 return flight from Brisbane to Perth for the travellers that do not know how to use a laptop, IPad etc."
Cons: "Plane arrived late Seats I reserved were not honored Asked to move before takeoff and was told no and then someone else just took the seat"
Pros: "Excellent service.Very clean.loved the entertainment. The landing was very good."
Pros: "Free wifi was good and worked more than expected"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable. Streaming entertainment to personal devices no good without charging outlets in seat"
Pros: "I like Virgin Australia -- luggage allowances are generous and it's nice to have a snack."
Cons: "Flight was late, snack was not nearly as nice as on my previous trip (little crunchy snacks instead of cheese & crackers), they didn't want to serve hot drinks but offered no caffeinated substitute (in my opinion, if they are going to halt hot beverage service due to turbulence, they should offer free soft drinks instead, or at least free beer & wine since that would have been offered anyway if the flight had been on NSW time). Nothing major, just not as great as my previous experience with this airline."
Pros: "Took off on time. Landed in time. Crew great"
Cons: "Food was really bad. Couldn't take a second bite. Avoid the beef stir fry."
Pros: "Movie selection was good. Complimentary wine was excellent and plentiful."
Cons: "Seat room was cramped."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "How fast the process of checking in Munich bags and getting to the plain on time"
Pros: "Love the inclusion of one checked bag in the ticket price. Like the free snack and hot drink."
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "No entertainment if you didn’t have their app installed. Food was average. No room near our seats for our bags in the overhead bins because crew & other passengers further down the plane had already used them. Had to wait outside in the cold to board. One of my bags was broken on this leg! Tight seating! Not impressed."
Pros: "People were nice, and hoarding and disembarking was efficient."
Cons: "My bag got lost, and they didn't deliver it until very late. Also, the taxi driver somehow had the wrong address, so I had to give the correct one to him over the phone after he called me, confused about where he was."
Pros: "Flight was fine. Food was fine."
Cons: "A wheel was broken off our new samsonite luggage. Virgin does not care."
Cons: "It got very cold and I was freezing"
Pros: "On time flight"
Pros: "The first. Captain flew brilliantly or however many there were"
Cons: "During the international flight a lot was not healthy. The crew were disinterested in the work in economy class with the exception of a very helpful young man. The announcements couldn't be understood, the speakers crackled so much and the stewardesses spoke in very heavy accents. There was still debris from the previous flight in the seat holders. The entry into the plane smelt unfresh . The TV. Programming was limited and often did not work. Overall it was a flight that lacked international standards. The final flight to cape Town was excellent. I was going to write you a letter. We are capable of much higher standards and I felt ashamed. The international flight to Perth was better but the flight back from Perth was not good. Every flight should be welcoming and helpful. The attitude and involvement of flight crew makes or breaks the journey even if the craft is old and not perfect With regards eva young and trusting that this review canbe of help."
Pros: "Free booze. That was literally the only redeeming quality of this 30+ hour trip."
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane I flew on (Delta) was different than the company I booked with (Virgin Air). The 15 hour Delta flight was extremely uncomfortable with little leg room (I'm only 5' 3") and no outlets to charge devices. Additionally, my virgin air flight from Perth to Sydney that ran from 12 am to 6 am had no blankets or pillows. I was freezing cold. The stranger next to me saw me trying to wrap my jumper around my feet to keep them warm and offered me his wool jacket to stay warm. Wifi would have also been nice... no wifi."
Pros: "The falafel wrap (lightly curry) was delicious"
Cons: "We reserved seats together and there were changed without reason"
Cons: "Checking in staff insisted that I check my 2nd bag even though it is within the carry-on bag limits."
Pros: "Virgin are consistent"
Pros: "Lounge access as a gold member, good facilities, full service on the plane, helpful crew"
Cons: "the flight was delayed, there was only a small sandwich for dinner which was a bit disappointing"
Pros: "Excellent choice of movies, nibbles and snacks suitable."
Cons: "The seat was a little uncomfortable on that plane. Not sure why."
Cons: "Received a chewy muesli bar Aussie bikkies wd have been much nicer Thank you"
Cons: "Despite being offered for sale an hour prior to departure, the ticket didn't issue before flight closing. Missed the flight and had to spend time getting a refund from the issuing company instead of spending the time working out how to get home!"
Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and pleasant throughout the flight. Service was faultless. The choice of entertainment was the best I have come across, movies, games etc. for all ages. The seating was very spacious with plenty of leg room.Thanks Virgin"
Cons: "Screaming babies!! But that can't be helped!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was excellent."
Cons: "No entertainment on board."
Pros: "I liked the food, and friendly staff. Pilot landed plane very well"
Cons: "We all had to use one run way due to heavy winds and waited on the small plane with nothing to do. I didn't bring my ipad as virgin has always had a screen even if it be 4 from the roof of the plane, there's music with a headset. This plane had nothing at all, I choose virgin for the reason you generally get a good plane. My suggestion is to sell of the bad planes like this one before you loose the customers that trust you."
Pros: "Nothing I arrived an hour and half early for my flight line was out the door , I waited just over a hour in line flight was delayed so 23 of us missed our connecting flight ,,, the staff were sarcastic and uppity do we had a 6 hour stopped over ,, staff could have handle the situations better by not lying ,,,,,, I have never complained about a air flight before but I did on this occasion ,,,, definitely will avoid Virgin flights in future and everything on Virgin flights cost money it's ridiculous that people have to go through their bags for money ,,,, just included it all from the start like want. Qantas will Be my future airline"
Pros: "Service excellence"
Pros: "great service, good crew... everything was fine - except for alternative food options - as I've mentioned here."
Cons: "there wasn't any gluten free food options on board, even though food was served as part of the flight. I didn't see anywhere on the website it mentioned that alternative meal options weren't available. fortunately, I took my own food on board for the 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Very little, again delayed in leaving resulting in arrival quite late"
Cons: "Unknowlingly dropped teeth which went under the seat and Virgin has no means of contacting airport to put mind at rest after flight and phone contact almost impossible as staff unable or unwilling to assist. No phone number in directory, no phones at airport. and in an emergency no way of contact and no one willing to do anything to assist. Food better but still too much rice. Long boring flight with no entertainment in flight. Very Very Disappointing Robert Richardson 0895930984"
Pros: "Empty, friendly staff"
Cons: "Late for my conference"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac while we were told it was delayed in Perth taking off and that it would be departing 40 min late. Then we taxied to the takeoff point and were then informed that there was a light showing in the cockpit and so we taxied back to the departure point, waited while the light was presumably repaired then eventually departed 90 minutes late arriving in Perth 100 minutes later than scheduled. Thus we would have missed our evening meal if we had travelled back to our home and instead had to obtain a meal elsewhere."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No food, small can of soft drink $3.50???(Theft). Miserable staff."
Pros: "Staff Are Lovely and so Helpfull"
Cons: "Just don't Like Flying haha"
Pros: "Nothing that I like specifically or I didn't use.."
Cons: "The food was awful, the chair was extremely uncomfortable, no other entertainment provided. The crew was freindly and good, but the food I just can't.... And the chair seriously is the only thing I hate the most... Got sore neck after the flight ugh"
Cons: "1 hour late, they changed the gate without announcing,"
Cons: "Very old 737. No in-flight entertainment if you didn't have a tablet."
Cons: "After boarding twice, the flight was canceled. We were rebooked on a small charter flight that took 6 hours and a stop to get us to Perth. We arrived 7 hours later than anticipated."
Cons: "The only vegetarian food option contained gelatine, and when I asked for something different, I was told that they 'don't do that'. However, when a couple asked for something different for religious reasons, they were given another meal. I have been a vegetarian for 16 years, but apparently ethics means nothing when compared to religion. Staff were not sympathetic at all, and we went without a meal, after paying a lot of money for the flight, and checking in advance that there would be vegetarian food. Gelatine is not vegetarian."
Pros: "Check in process and Perth terminal"
Cons: "Cabin crew professional but a little rude, no in seat entertainment."
Pros: "The service of Kayak and Virgin was wonderful. The flight was comfortable and smooth. I usually hate flying but this flight I actually enjoyed in a way. The food was surprisingly good as well. Overall excellent - a tick in all the boxes!"
Cons: "You are all ways late"
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Virgin still doesn't cater for gluten intolerance dietary requirement...it's so easy with a stew, curry, salad etc...anything without pasta or bread..yet they manage to ensure that there's gluten in EVERYTHING, even dishes that shouldn't normally have them...not happy Virgin, take a leaf from Qantas!"
Pros: "It is a short trip and it is easy to get on and off the flight without too much hassle. Except when it is raining as you have to walk from the terminal to the plane. No Food or Entertainment is provided as it is such a short flight"
Pros: "Crew always happy and polite."
Cons: "all travellers were polite this trip, which I’m sure was appreciated by the crew."
Pros: "Just as same as what I expexted as a LCC."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and additional baggage charge was non-refundable."
Pros: "Service was great. Best food hubby and I ever had on a flight, international or domestic!"
Cons: "No issues!"
Pros: "It was wider than I expected."
Pros: "Crew were awesome."
Cons: "Free coffee as opposed to paying $4 for an ordinary coffee"
Cons: "Service was fast and efficient"
Cons: "Less hidden fees everywhere and free water!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The flight left late. It just made it to landing in Sydney before an electrical storm shut down the airport. If the flight had left on Tim e it would have made it to Sydney before the shut down. We spent 3 hours in the plane on the Sydney tarmac."
Pros: "The full refund."
Cons: "Jetstar cancelled my New Years Day flight on the evening of New Years Eve “due to crewing requirements.” It was a blessing-in-disguise because it forced me to fly Virgin for the first time. Not only was my last-minute Virgin ticket cheaper than Jetstar, I didn’t have to pay the ridiculous extra baggage fees Jetstar charges, and a meal with alcohol was included in my flight. Virgin all the way!"
Cons: "Got charged $120 at the gate as my bags were 7.5kg not 7kg. Blatant money grab."
Cons: "I have put past a lot of things that jetstar airlines have done in the past, including the 140$ that I had to pay to change and pay to rebook or pay to cancel and there were no given supports with credits, so I ended up abandoning the flight altogether losing the money. I flew jetstar from Sydney to Sunshine Coast with my backpack a personal bag and a tote bag. I had previously paid 20$ for checked luggage. Making my total for the flight 80$ no one asked to weigh my bags or questioned them. Making the 20$ extra just disappear? . They did make me throw out my beverage upon entered the aircraft that I just purchased, I would assume because it’s a ‘safety issue’ even though the airline does not give complimentary anything so I’m assuming it’s mostly competition of sales.In Gold Coast I checked my bags through security got to the gate and they had a trolly weighing bags. They asked me if I was traveling with someone else which I replied with a no. They then weighed my backpack saying it was 7kgs and I had to come with them to the front. So my backpack personal item and tote bag was too much all of a sudden. I offered to give up the tote bag which then turned the situation into that all of my bags were over weight and it was going to charge me 60$ for my 7kg backpack. I said 60$ was expensive and I paid 20$ last time for my checked bags on the way here that I hadn’t used and he said too bad. Meanwhile the majority of people boarding past me had had rolling luggage and an additional bag or a personal item and when I said something to the employee he told me I’m wrong and they were all weighed and it’s 60$ for my belongings to be checked and put under the plane? Because 60$ somehow made the weight of the flight more light? Horrible customer service. I didn’t get I’m sorry any compassion I got what are you paying with? I paid 60$ or miss my flight. 60$ could have given me one more flight. Also to mention the flight was not even completely full so what did that 60$ accomplish? Awful awful awful . So in the future I suppose I’m just going to donate 20$ regardless if I have checked luggage or not because paying for everything is the only consistent thing on jetstar. On the positive side they let me jump the line after I paid 60$ for my “overweight luggage” and I got to my assigned seat more quickly."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Multiple flights a day to Sydney from OOL. Ours was delayed so many times that other flights came and left! Not one long delay...delay after delay after delay that added up to two hours. If we would have known that in the beginning we would have been more understanding. I thought for sure the airline would offer a beverage in the flight or something to make up for it. Nope. Just don’t fly JetStar. Really. It’s not worth the money you save."
Pros: "I hadn’t seen the option to book my luggage so when I arrived in the airport I had to pay extra for my luggage (I assume this is more feedback for kayak then for Jetstar). The crew helped me really well to add my luggage but the extra fee was kind of a bummer.. Had a great flight, beautiful airplane and wonderful crew."
Cons: "Didn’t get food or entertainment so not applicable"
Pros: "Friendly staff and on time."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Extra fees were unexpected."
Cons: "How close the seats are."
Pros: "never fly with Jetstar again ripped off with return baggage cost girl at reception seemed to get pleasure at taking 60 dollars from me for another hidden cost"
Cons: "Don't fall for the scam where Kayak doesn't redirect you to the airline site, but rather has you book the flight within the Kayak site. They charge you a $10US surcharge on top of the flight cost. You can just as easily type in the airline site and book (for the same cost) without paying Kayak $10. It's not well disclosed and you can google all the complaints about Travelfuson (Kayak owner) online."
Cons: "Flight was 4 and 1/2 hours late. While we waited 3 flights departed on time to our destination Sydney. Neither the pilot nor the cabin manager made any acknowledgement of our inconvenience ....just "thank you for flying with us". Appalling lack of sensitivity or decency. They are apparently oblivious to their contribution to JetStar's poor reputation. Someone else's fault no doubt!"
Pros: "That the flight was on time and the baggage arrived quickly."
Cons: "Bag check was difficult. I neglected to purchase my one bag’s space in the hold either because I forgot or neglected this task. Nevertheless, when I tried to purchase the checked bag, I was misdirected twice and separate scales were 7kilos apart! Thus my “budget airfare” from Sydney to Coolangatta was $94, my checked bag in the other direction cost $124! This was the only hiccup, but the bag check process was unnecessarily expensive, unwieldy, and confusing."
Pros: "Flight was smooth. No one bothered me while I was sleeping."
Cons: "Food not complementary. No entertainment option"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the landing was very smooth"
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."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly staff on board. Easy check in and boarding. Slight departure delay but arrived on time."
Cons: "Food options aren't great or cheap, but it's a budget airline so what do you really expect? Same goes for baggage. 7kg carry-on isn't a lot but prepare for it properly and you'll have no problems - you can't complain when you're charged for being a few kilos over."
Pros: "We got everything we paid for"
Cons: "Some of the cabin crew including the manager need to lighten up and smile occasionally"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Felt safe"
Cons: "Walk from gate 49 to closest exit doors 1.9km, no travellators. Are you kidding me? Never again."
Cons: "I missed my next flight to NYC because of cancellation (even though i had 22h in tokyo to spend). And had to spend huge amount of money to get home."
Cons: "That they tried to charge me $385 AUD at the check in desk for one suitcase. I do not recall being told that it would cost this much money to take one suitcase. Eventually they charged me $160, which is still day light robbery. Had it been more clear when booking my flight that the luggage would be so expensive I would have paid extra to check in my suitcase, I don't even recall that being an option. Please advise."
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."
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"
Pros: "Nice staff and very clean planes."
Pros: "Nothing, had I known Jetstar was such a poor quality airline I would've never booked the flight. not to be rude just being honest they didn't even offer me water. For a five hour flight that is absolutely ridiculous,"
Cons: "Zero in-flight entertainment once again for a five hour flight. I would not recommend this airline to anybody and will not be flying jetstar ever again"
Cons: "Just stay away from this airline. One of the worst in the world. Don't care about their customers at all."
Pros: "It got me to my destination on time. Web check in for this leg of my flight made things quick. Didn't have checked luggage so that was ok."
Cons: "Jetstar is not a quality airline. Customer service is lacklustre. Cramped space. Plane seemed dirty and the air during takeoff and landed really smelled bad. Food and drinks way overpriced and not good."
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: "nothing good to say. Would have rather taken a different airline with a longer connecting route rather than direct with jet star."
Cons: "Payed $90 online to choose my seat, but was denied it at boarding, no refund. the cabin is freezing cold and they make you pay $10 for the little blanket, but actually they deny it to you on board if you didn't pay online (I laughed out loud because that is total nonsense). they charge $4 for the coffee... No big deal. But besides those little details, it's an overall unpleasant experience and even a bit sinister they way they cut corners. They seem to be cutting corners on safety with their taxiway and parking procedures much like Ryanair. I was swiftly reprimanded for taking some perfectly innocent photos of the plane (like every holiday goer does), because the pilot didn't want any 'trouble'. Whatever the reason for that immediately defensive reaction, it's not a good sign. jetstar has a bad record of safety as we all know."
Pros: "We were very incinvenienced and had to fly via Sydney. We arrived a day late and had two long flights."
Cons: "Cheap airline"
Pros: "Lucky enough to be upgraded to one of the emergency exit rows which has a seat in front of you still but further away with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No thing really, you get what you pay for with no food supplied or entertainment"
Pros: "Crew were fine"
Cons: "Kids were literally using my seat as a jungle gym. Staff should have controlled kids"
Pros: "Quick and efficient. Crew was great."
Pros: "Best price for a flight. The crew and staff was top teir. They were wonderful on every flight I was on with them and that was 4 flights. They have their staffing down right."
Cons: "Only thing I could really say is that I didn't like was some of the other passengers."
Pros: "Crew was great, we left n arrived on time, all was good, except those seats. I'm 6'3", and even an aisle is so uncomfortable. My knees are smashed into the seat in frt of me. Least leg room I've ever seen"
Pros: "Very friendly service. Departed on time"
Cons: "Long, long walk to get to departure gate. No air-bridges."
Pros: "Agents at the desk were much more friendly, however Jetstar's policies are self-serving and as such the agents are hard pressed to offer any kind of customer service."
Cons: "No options for check in baggage when I purchased the ticket online, so baggage cost me $260 at check-in. Agents at the desk were extremely indifferent and borderline rude, overall extremely unhelpful. Airplane interior was dingy, seat cushions were worn down and flat, extremely limited leg space (I cannot stress enough how inadequate the leg space was), no entertainment. No complimentary drinks, not even water."
Cons: "4oo dollars to take check on a bag I paid 270 for my fucken seat so I lost my bag then herd stories from other passages of being stuck in the plane for 5 hours on the tarmac when asking for a bottle of water they were told that be 6 dollars ha I will never fly jet star again and I will be spreadin the word"
