Airline reviews

Pros: "No problem apart from left a tad late"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "Planes are old"

Pros: "Quick easy painless and on time"

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: "Great, love the ATRs"

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

Cons: "No seatback monitor."

Pros: "Leave and Arrived on time"

Cons: "Glad to have an isle seat"

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

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"

Cons: "They lost my luggage"

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: "A+"

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

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."

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: "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 departure."

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: "Every employee I've met has made my trip seamless and delightful. Your employees are very professional. Wish you were in the US!!"

Pros: "Excellent choice of movies, nibbles and snacks suitable."
Cons: "The seat was a little uncomfortable on that plane. Not sure why."

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: "Received a chewy muesli bar Aussie bikkies wd have been much nicer Thank you"

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."

Pros: "everything was great, more movie options would be better"

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: "I could not board the plane because the ticket was cancelled. I want my money NOW. I had to pay for a ticket at the counter and almost was left out. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE WITH KAYAK."
Cons: "I could not board the plane because the ticket was cancelled. I want my money NOW. I had to pay for a ticket at the counter and almost was left out. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE WITH KAYAK"

Pros: "Boarding speed"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Waiting time on transfer Staff attitude"

Pros: "Glad I wasnt conecting internationally..Plane problems..Other airlines might have offerred some compensation for 2.5 hrs late.."
Cons: "Otherwise fine"

Cons: "Didn't clearly mention to me that I have to buy extra ticket for my luggage. It is a cheap plane, but the expense actually is not cheap."

Pros: "Everyone was super helpful and friendly."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats too small and rows so close I couldn't put my knees together. I am only 6'2" tall. Luckily the person in front didn't try to recline"

Pros: "Virgin terminal"

Pros: "On time. Courteous employees."

Cons: "Baggage charge of $70 Australian dollars was an unpleasant surprise. Had 3 bags. All other airlines on this trip went by weight, not number of bags and charged zero."

Pros: "Good points : Staff Aircraft Boarding Seating WiFi entertainment"
Cons: "Bad points: Meals/drinks (just ok....) Coffee :( (don't even think of it)"

Pros: "Friendly male flight attendants. Comfortable seating, though plane was noisy (we did have noise cancelling earphones which helped)."
Cons: "One very grumpy - didn't acknowledge with words any question or comment - female flight attendant. Not a very good selection of video options."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Some of the turbulence."

Pros: "Friendly staff and crew. Great landing!"
Cons: "Leg room a little tight."

Pros: "25 minute flight, no need for in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Could use some more leg room."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Limited baggage allowance , check in clerk over officious and totally unhelpful. "Safety" factor re weight used interminably, why not upgrade fleet if safety is so important ? Asked how I was to get luggage not on flight , told " not my problem , read fine print ""

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."

Pros: "Beautiful polite and professional ladies air hostesses"

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

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: "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"

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"

Cons: "Not only did you cost me one days work, but you also lost my bag and your ground staff didn't care. All she wanted to do was go home. Matt"

Cons: "Boarding was late and congested Not organized"

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

Pros: "I liked the atmosphere and safety"
Cons: "The food isn't that good"

Cons: "Who knows the weight of the bag ahead of time. Should allow for bags to be check day of without penalty."

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: "Friendly crew, budget price"
Cons: "No drink service at all"

Pros: "The entertainment was free."
Cons: "Paying $50 to process my Visa at the counter."

Pros: "We boarded and left on time. Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "They only allow 7kg carry on which forced us to check 2 bags @ $30 each. It's just to extract money. It looked like a reasonable fare but by the time we paid fees, seats and luggage, another airline would be a better choice. They chatged us a $60 "third party" between Queenstown and Cairns. Ridiculous...I won't fly with them again."

Pros: "To get a drink faster - preorder online when booking"

Cons: "$15 per kilogram charge for over weight luggage is a rip off"

Cons: "Was charged 50$ at check in at airport for luggage. It was a carry on size they said it was over weight had flown with same items on several different airlines, Quantas, American, and virgin no one else stop me. If this is how they get the ticket cheap, just state that upfront. So I know and am not surprised at airport."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding on tarmac in the rain, no cover over walkway. Smallest and tightest seating in the airline business."

Pros: "Fairly efficient, cheaper price."
Cons: "Had employee going down boarding line with a scale charging extra $50 if you were over their ridiculously low weight limit for a carry on bag. Had no problem with same bag on numerous other airlines."

Pros: "Have flown with jet star and I always have a great flight and I really enjoy how amazing the flight crew always are. Will continue to choose Jetstar for my domestic flights."

Pros: "smooth,effortless"

Cons: "Departing with 2 hour delay was unacceptable. Had to purchase a new ticket on a different airline."

Pros: "Nice staff and very clean planes."

Cons: "There is no service at all! The crew is mediocre!"

Cons: "Need to include luggage fee on price."

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "There was no entertainment"

Pros: "Fare"
Cons: "Nothing but the fair is included"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Paying for seat and Niger luggage"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Crew were fine"
Cons: "Kids were literally using my seat as a jungle gym. Staff should have controlled kids"

Pros: "i would never travel to jetstar again they discriminate people we are indian we had some carry on bags they charge us extra they didm check any body els"

Pros: "Quick and efficient. Crew was great."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Big discrimination singled us out from a line of 100 plus passengers and checked our carry on bag/s for weight. Air line representative said that we have 5 minutes to throw things or adjust bags or you r not going or pay 50 dollars each which we paid. These bags were the same we got from Sydney. We were on vacation and these guys ruined it. We definitely need to file complaint to some agency for not checking any one else carry on in that line except ours. Many passengers had heavy bags than ours. Pls do not recommend this jet star to anyone."

Pros: "Exactly at time"

Pros: "Timely, warm friendly crew, comfortable seating"
Cons: "Flying out of Avalon Airport in Melbourne. Too far out of the way."

Pros: "Llegue a destino"
Cons: "Si no pagas no hay ni agua"

Pros: "even thought they departed late we landed on time"
Cons: "both flights departed late"

Pros: "It took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Everything else"
