Cons: "Jam packed flight. Qantas is squeezing people in and squeezing the profits. Happening way to frequently now."

Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Boarding time"

Pros: "I slept for 12 of the 15 hours so? Food was good!"
Cons: "More leg room."

I WILL TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THIS!"
Cons: "Dark haired male crew member extremely rude except to two in row I58 & J58 who got 5 beers before departure,Food before everyone else, a gift pack from 1st class given before landing.

Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"

Pros: "comfortable seats. Okay food. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Flights were almost all delayed. Was told I didnt have to pick up luggage during connecting flight, but did have to."

Cons: "I didn't board this flight because of the restrictions imposed by the Australian government not to let passengers transit through their country. I received no communication about this from the airline prior to my check in at the airport. They were not helpful with any options as to what I should do."

Cons: "A bigger, more comfortable aircraft"

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and boarding was slow due to only using one aircraft door."

Pros: "Virgin lounge staff were super friendly and helpful - getting me on an earlier flight and giving me a spare seat next to me!"
Cons: "nothing negative to say"

Cons: "Planes are old"

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."

Cons: "flight cancelled"

Pros: "Good seat, plenty of space for my long legs."
Cons: "Boarding was a little disorganized."

Pros: "Economy X was excellent value for getting 3 seats between 2, best I've ever slept in economy. Plane was late arriving before departure so boarding was late but we did leave and arrive on time. As I had an upset stomach the crew were nice enough to give me extra crackers and it was no hassle getting me herbal tea."
Cons: "Would be nice to have onboard entertainment included"

Pros: "How fast the process of checking in Munich bags and getting to the plain on time"

Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food VERY basic SErvice just OK"

Cons: "We still in Auckland as without any notification airline staff has cancelled our ticket and we had so much drama at the airport and we couldn’t catch the flight and we had to come back home please explain why this is happened? Contact email- priyanka27.patel@gmail.com"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful Stewards. Virgin Australia 1 free checked luggage is great."
Cons: "The queue for the loo was a bit ridiculous. Passengers were lining up in the isle besides our seats instead of waiting in thier seat for a vacancy."

Pros: "Love the inclusion of one checked bag in the ticket price. Like the free snack and hot drink."

Pros: "Larger plane."
Cons: "Stewards missed serving me twice. I pressed call button and was ignored. Kids meal and vegetarian preferences were ignored. Abu Dhabi made all Sydney passengers go through security including full cabin luggage checks twice. Abu Dhabi made me check in the duty free that I bought in Dublin. It was a connecting flight so why on earth was that something I had to do. I could not check in online, choose seats or update preferences. They sat my daughter separately and I was fobbed off in each airport and until Abu Dhabi where the cabin manager took so long I had to ask another passenger to swap. My son was sick as he walked off the ramp and I had to stand and direct people around the vomit for over 10 minutes while staff dragged their feet getting help. I will never fly Virgin with etihad again."

Pros: "Friendly crew who offered to make me a cup of tea and offered me refreshments whilst rest of passengers were asleep. Perfect and just what I needed :)"
Cons: "Tasteless unappetising vegetarian dinner, uncomfortable seats, no duty free shopping offered"

Pros: "6 years. I am old and have been cared for very well."

Pros: "staff were wonderful!"
Cons: "not enough vegetarian meals brought on board for everyone in business class who wants one.... disgraceful for what it costs"

Pros: "My Mum has mild dementia and was going to Sydney from Maroochydore to visit family. From check in at MCY to arrival back at MCY the staff looked after her very well. She needed assistance boarding and disembarking and they were very helpful and courteous and that's why I choose Virgin over the other airline that flies the same route."

Pros: "arrived on time crew were polite and friendly."
Cons: "when boarding the plane from rear maybe passengers in the front should board first to save the mayhem."

Cons: "Staff attitude on board very poor Overall experience very mediocre Entertainment selection very Asian biased"

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The lumbar support in the Virgin seat makes all the difference, plus the info re toilets, either get up now or wait till food service stops, and the instruction to put seat in upright position for eating much appreciated. I also LOVED the unexpected brilliant in-house video of psychology. Dr Andrew Ley(?) Food was great, nothing ridiculous, hot tasty and healthy. I liked there was no over packaging that took up my tray table room. Jetstar is a torture chamber with those seats that cause your back to curl over."

Pros: "-Professional, clean. Staff seemed happy to be there. -Use of both front and rear boarding allows for faster departure."
Cons: "-Need clearer instructions or a crew member to direct passengers to front or back of plane. -In flight entertainment depends on predownload of an app."

Pros: "nice aircraft. hosts were promt to address any issue."
Cons: "lack of movie options especially hindi movies"

Pros: "Quick and efficient once we boarded"
Cons: "Seats small. One crew member had massive attitude Was getting very upset at Asians who kept trying to switch seats. She was, in my opinion, unprofessional with her comments and was taking it very personal."

Cons: "I don’t think it’s acceptable to not give any food on a 6 hour flight. Also to pay for food we need to wait for the cart. I sat hungry for awhile."

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"

Pros: "Flight was delayed for 2 and a half hours. Ground staff were rude and dismissive and just huddled together to chat to each other and joke."
Cons: "Ground service - once airborne it was ok"

Pros: "Economy X is fantastic, and really enjoy the boarding experience and the crew. left on time and arrived early. Excellent trip in that regard."
Cons: "Almost every time I travel on virgin, which is a lot. They serve a minim muesli bar. Come on Virgin what about changing that a bit. Qantas offer some really good options for not much more of a ticket price. This part of the Virgin Experience needs to change."

Pros: "The entire service is great I'd be happy to pay more for a flight with virgin then any other airline"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"

Cons: "Delayed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight Inaccurate baggage carousel information Lack of communication from Virgin"

Pros: "Impeccable and attentive service More spacious seats"
Cons: "Crying babies during the entire flight, not that the flight could help it but wish there were more quiet areas for passengers without families"

Cons: "Checking in staff insisted that I check my 2nd bag even though it is within the carry-on bag limits."

Cons: "my seat got changed"

Pros: "Everyone was very helpful. On time. No problems at all.thank you."
Cons: "Only could have gluten free snack"

Pros: "When boarding the plane I enquired about headphones. The flight attendant told me they don't usually give out headphones on my particular flight, however 15 minutes into the flight she walked past and had a pair for me to use. I was really impressed by the level of service and the fact she remembered where I was sitting. Great customer experience!"

Cons: "Breakfast "cafe style" was just soggy bread. Not edible. The interface on the inflight screen is very, very fiddly....many, many touches required to get your show as it kept defaulting to the show under the next arrow."

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: "Simplicity"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Plane an easy boarding process. Attendant was very helpful when processing our baggage with an interrupting phone we jad to take."

Cons: "Waiting time on transfer Staff attitude"

Pros: "Movies were good but the entertainment system wasnot easy to use."
Cons: "Food was rather ordinary."

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Checking in was unfriendly"

Pros: "I liked everything but my chair was very uncomfortable but otherwise everything was great the staff were really good too"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chair"

Pros: "Kept us informed of progress, snacks and drinks, upgrade to extra legroom at no charge"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Easy check-in, on-time arrival"
Cons: "The snacks are very boring."

Pros: "The whole service"

Pros: "It was wider than I expected."
Cons: "Old."

Pros: "Adequate"
Cons: "In this day and age, i expect to have free entertainment even with a short hall"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cheaper add booked luggage costs."

Pros: "Older plane with uncomfortable seat"
Cons: "The seat on the plane was old and uncomfortable"

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: "Nothing actually"
Cons: "Late departure, uncomfortable seats, rude staff"

Pros: "Thank you so much for returning my laptop to me. I left it on board seat 4c. Made my day , comfy fast flight"

Pros: "The crew heard this person carrying on and did nothing"
Cons: "Another passenger was rude and disrespectful to personal space in my seating"

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: "That l got sms messages regarding my flight details and where to collect my luggage!! Awesome"

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."

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: "Overall experience very good"
Cons: "All goid"

Cons: "My father passed away this morning, and I couldn’t call anyone to change my flight. The number didn’t work. So I had to purchase 2 new tkts for the 11.30 flight home."

Pros: "Newer plane, arrived on time."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything. Even though it’s an eight hour flight there is no food, drink or entertainment included. They do have screens at the back of each seat but it’s $10 to watch a limited selection. The food and drink are expensive. It gets cold in the plane but you guessed it if you ask for a blanket you have to buy a $20 “comfort pack”. So be prepared!"

Pros: "What did I like... er..... I got home !"
Cons: "Where to begin: 1. The staff. the rudest flight crew i have ever come across in my professional career 2. The flight, well, as always, the flight was delayed for no reason, no explanations, no apologies, nothing 3. Comfort.... the Airbus A321 is a good airframe, other airlines engage seat manufactures with comfort in mind... nope.. not jetstar 4. Food. What food??? Was there any food?? nope.. there was a bag of nuts and some chips... 5. Entertainment. Well, I had fun listening to the cabin crew moan about passengers, so that was entertaining.. NEVER AGAIN"

Cons: "Child behind sitting on floor banging seat and loud devices being used with no ear phones so couldn’t rest"

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: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"

Pros: "Flight crew polite and helpful considering it was a full flight"
Cons: "Random carry on checks penalising customers, especially embarrassing for Asian customers pulled aside and penalised in front of others for overweight hand baggage. Apparently no consideration for cultural respect and saving face. I felt very badly for the lady affected. Hand luggage checks should apply to all or nobody - random checks are nothing but a price gouge. If you're going to do it, at least give a voucher of some sort or some kind of incentive to choose jeststar again. Extremely poorly thought out procedure."

Cons: "Paid $320AD just to check two regular bags from Bali to Sydney! Never heard of such high rates any even close to this), on any other airline. Flight was fine, but could have used that much money for a standby first-class upgrade on some other airline."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and landed earlier than time."
Cons: "Domestic flights don't offer food and entertainment which is difficult for families with children."

Pros: "Smooth flight, easy interstate flight with no hassle."
Cons: "Jetstar boarding pass system is very silly. You can't use the email ones on your phone and have to actually print it out. As a suggestion.. maybe have a unified option instead? Charging sms service is ridiculous.. it is 2017!"

Cons: "Late 2 hrs going to noosa. Cancel flight coming home. Then replace flight delayed 2 hrs as well"

Pros: "Nothing , horrible service and excessive luggage fees"
Cons: "Horrible service, they measured your luggage by the ounces"

Cons: "600$$$ for luggage"

Cons: "Felt totally scammed by their baggage policy. Did not realize you have to pay for baggage in advance (which was a bit tricky since I didn't know how much my bags would weigh at the time of purchase) and was forced to pay nearly $1000 d For bags at the gate. Absurd!"

Pros: "Flight was smooth. No one bothered me while I was sleeping."
Cons: "Food not complementary. No entertainment option"

Pros: "The plane was not full plenty of room to move to a better seat with a window."
Cons: "No entertainment so was a bit boring plus why pay for seats when they move you to a different anyway."

Cons: "Check in and payment for baggage was confusing and not well organized."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the landing was very smooth"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "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."

Cons: "They choose to weigh bags just as we were boarding and as I was 1kg , I had to check in my bag , but apparently it has to go on the next flight. So now I have to wait for 2.5 hers in Sydney for my bag and had to pay $50 for the inconvenience. I would expect this from Tiger not Jetstar"

Pros: "My seat 12F...."

Pros: "We didn't crash and everything apart from the leg room being smaller was okay."
Cons: "They have taken two inches off the leg room. I know cause my legs now don't fit sitting straight."

Cons: "Food was horrendous and staff service was poor considering we were in business."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "NEW check in procedure with lack of instruction Seat spacing and lack of room in cattle class, first seat I have ever had that it's so called upright position actually bent you uncomfortably forward during take off and landing and I used to work in the industry"

Cons: "Worst airline experience in my 40 years of travel"

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: "Jetstar is a comparatively budget airline owned by Qantas. We were in Business class from Honolulu to Sydney and that's a well timed flight considering it takes a little over 10 hours, leaving Honolulu at 8:30am and arriving in Sydney at 3:00pm. We normally fly Qantas business for international flights but in this case it's almost double the cost. Jetstar Business doesn't have lie flat beds, it provides wide and comfortable seats and they don't recline very far, but as this particular flight is completely in daylight hours it doesn't matter too much. We will always choose this particular flight because of the combination of timing and cost, so well done Jetstar."

Pros: "We got everything we paid for"
Cons: "Some of the cabin crew including the manager need to lighten up and smile occasionally"

Pros: "Our airline didn't inform us that we needed a visa for our over night flight layover !"
Cons: "We had plans and accomidations made for whenwe touched down in Sydney ! But unfortunately the airline we booked with didn't inform us or set us up with our visa !"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Felt safe"

Cons: "160 dollars to check a bag. I'll never fly with this airline again"

Pros: "Boarding was good and check in!"
Cons: "Dont have any entertainement and dont have usb to charge cellphones!"

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: "I paid nearly $400 for a one way flight from Sydney to Auckland. You think they could include a Coke and a package of peanuts. I will avoid using Jetstar in the future."

Cons: "Seat. Slow boarding"
