Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Clean, roomy and peaceful flight"
Cons: "Not being 20min late and having NO ground announcement about the delay and impact on connecting flights. When I suggest to a staff member that perhaps they should keep customers informed, they said they couldn’t because they didn’t know. They helpfully suggested I google for information! Seriously!"
Cons: "Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight"
Cons: "I pay for the airspace above my seat - I didn't get it! Flight attendant obese and not me twice. QF need to lock their cattle class seat backs - insufficient seat pitch to allow leaning."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew was great and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "If the seats reclined more, it would have been easier to sleep. The baby behind me would not stop screaming for 7 of the 15 hour flight. The flight was oversold so there was no where I could move. Even ear plugs didn’t help. Everyone was miserable."
Pros: "Crew was fine, seating was ok. Appreciated food and snacks, boarding - and disembarking- was handled super well."
Cons: "How do you enforce 'quiet time' when there are chatty children in the row in front and in back of you? Was constant distraction."
Pros: "Great food, great service!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Only had overhead video displays, not individual ones in the back of the seat, so no choice of entertainment. No matter, I read a book!"
Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"
Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."
Cons: "Why have priority baggage when it doesn’t seem to work, except in inverse proportions"
Cons: "Only podcasts, couldn't find music to listen to while I worked."
Pros: "Excellent customer service !! Great crew down the back !!! (Except they didn’t want to take my banana peel when collecting rubbish?). Will have to carry off plane which is annoying ?!?"
Cons: "Entertainment system not working for our row of seats"
Pros: "Staff are always amazing"
Cons: "There were no headphones for in flight entertainment. Sure its only an hour long flight but still, some distraction from the turbulence would have been nice."
Pros: "It got me home in one piece safe and sound, what more can you ask for."
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."
Cons: "The gate displayed on the boards in the departures area did not match the actual gate (17C). Confused a lot of passengers as the gate displayed was through the international area. Limited seating at the gate."
Pros: "Singapore airline best for Australia"
Pros: "The service, politeness of staff, the food."

Pros: "As before great assist with wheel-chair support"
Cons: "Seat was quite uncomfortable for a long flight. Would be nice if the window arm rest could fold up."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."

Cons: "There was a delay but they didn't explain what was going on. I overheard that there was a threat."
Pros: "Relatively roomy"
Pros: "Overall a comfortable way to travel."
Cons: "For flying business the food was awful; the person sitting next to me actually sent his meal back it was so bad. They had a relatively pedestrian menu, but were unable to deliver. The steak was overcooked and grey throughout, prawn starter was tasteless and bland, and panna cotta was overly sweet and weirdly goopy. The dinner options were so uninspiring that I skipped. I understand that it's airline food - but don't offer it if you can't at least make it slightly acceptable.... The staff was a bit all over the place and slow - it seems like having the flight at capacity was too much for them to handle. The sets in business are really starting to show their age and need a really need a steam clean."
Cons: "Entertainiment screen was not working properly. Bad food. I could not check in online. Okay customer service."
Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."
Cons: "The distance between the seats has decreased substantially. Reminds me of a Jetstar budget flight. The food being served in cardboard boxes was Aldo a big shock. For the cost of a qantas flight I expected more comfort and better food served"

Pros: "Crew were really good"

Pros: "On time and efficient."
Cons: "No GF food choices offered - always try asking for a bit of fruit if what's on offer doesn't suit."

Pros: "Crew were ver friendly"
Cons: "Late departure?"
Pros: "All the basics were good- comfort, service, and the flight itself."
Cons: "The fight was significantly delayed due to weather, which is not their fault, but they did not update us or the departure time toward the end, which they clearly knew and didn't communicate that it would be further delayed. They forgot cups for tea and coffee, so we only had water or juice."

Cons: "Automatic ticketing for the baggage drop was not working and signed as such by the airport staff (i.e. so they were aware of the malfunction). I had to wait around to for an hour before the counter opened and one could check bags the old way which meant I (& everyone else on the flight) had to stand around with luggage. If the auto machines are not working surely one desk could have been provided for luggage drop-off."
Pros: "Bad weather had resulted in significant delays and turbulence was expected. However, flight was smooth and fast."
Cons: "Flight attendant who clutched my hand with the latex gloves she was using to protect herself from germs and then with attitude and rude tone demanded to know if I had a problem."

Pros: "The lounge and space on the flight"
Cons: "Bizarre that the passenger across the aisle from me had a ticket to Sydney which had been scanned twice by staff, didn't work, they couldn't work out why and let her on anyway after phonecalls from steward. She wasn't too pleased to be in Adelaide with all her luggage supposedly on the Sydney flight (last minute gate change). Security breach and error!"

Cons: "Nibbles (tiny museli bar) was a bit poor. Could have been"
Cons: "Need something a bit better than nibbles..."

Pros: "- 30kg checking bag. - service"
Cons: "complementary snack is not healthy at all."

Pros: "2 free checked bags when flying domestically is a big plus!"
Pros: "everything was great"
Pros: "Great customer service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Computer system was down and check in counter could have used a few more employees to service the long line of customers waiting for about 45 minutes to check in."
Pros: "I was very pleased and will continue to book with you."
Cons: "The PRICE!!!! with my favourite airline"
Pros: "Flight attendants were beautiful. The falafel was tasty. Smooth landing."
Pros: "Value for money flight."
Cons: "Flight running late causing ongoing difficulties later in the evening. Flight crew could have been more aware and in control of rowdy, annoying passengers causing difficulties for others."
Pros: "Good value flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then put into stack in Sydney - but given the Sydney weather over the weekend maybe that was to be expected. Flight crew could be more aware of annoying teenagers and others being disruptive in the cabin and painful for other passengers."
Cons: "I had to claim my bag between Jetstar flights and then go through security again to my second leg....I flew from Hobart to Auckland today. So at Melbourne I spent several hours in the process Of going to claim my bag, going through security again and rechecking it. Horror...terrible experience. I will never fly Jetstar again....they do not transfer bags between the flights on their own airlines which I booked under the same ticket."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfy"
Cons: "Who eats mandarins on a plane i ask you???"
Pros: "Last flight of the evening with all perishable meals at half price."
Cons: "Tray table came down almost into my stomach .... why can’t you push them back towards the rear of the seat ???"
Pros: "The crew was very good and did an outstanding job accommodating the passengers. Thank you."
Cons: "I really think everything was great and Jetstar is very well organized. You can teach the US carriers how to efficiently run an airline service. Thank you for taking pride and responsibility for running a well organized airline."
Pros: "The seating was comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing and won't travel with them again."
Cons: "On timeliness!"
Cons: "Seats quite uncomfortable. Could feel the seat structure through the sestback."
Pros: "Boarding from back and front of plane. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Booked from the US and didn't realize it was a no frills airline that charges for seat selection in advance then once at the airport they weigh your carryon. If it's over 7.9kgs then you pay extra. Once on b p ard you pay for ANY refreshments."
Pros: "Check in was easy once we prepaid for our luggage ahead of time."
Cons: "Did not even get a glass of water on plane. People get dehydrated flying, Jetstar should always offer water. The flight attendant was very picky, I could not leave my thin fleece tied around my waist."
Cons: "The charges for the checked baggage. They are very steep."
Cons: "late flight inedible noodles staff with too much attitude"
Pros: "Accommodating crew & staff. She tried to help add ff miles at airport and when I thought I had lost my p'port tried helping. (I had put it in other side pouch & misplaced it). Found just prior to boarding. First time Jetstar, cheap and what I expected. Overnight Bali to ADL. My carry-on was under 7 kg & small 11 kg bag I checked ahead online for under $50 US. Already have booked economy fare to DRW, also CAIRNS."
Cons: "Staging, signboard postings. Moved around before shuttle bus out to plane, stairs."
Cons: "The cost of a Checked bag was ridiculously high...very unreasonable! ....lots of unexpected fees for everything"
Cons: "I paid $75 for checked baggage when I checked in on line. I had to guess the weight of our bags. When we got to the airport to drop our bags we were over what we had guestimated (who travels with a scale?). We had to pay another $75 because once the airport kiosk opens you can’t do an online purchase. On the previous flight we overpaid weight but they wouldn’t give us a refund . They are thieves. Most airlines charge per bag. This is the first time we have paid by weight. I certainly won’t travel Jetstar again! And they don’t even have free water on board."
Cons: "didnt answer baggage questions ahead of time and wasn't clear on website, ended up costing over $100 *extra* to check bags than anticipated due to this - long lines, poor customer service"
Pros: "There is nothing to like about the trip - glad I made it."
Cons: "Baggage handling, treatment and flight crew should all be avoided"
Pros: "The Steweys were great!!"
Cons: "On time depature and cheerful but firm crew"
Cons: "The entire experience"
Pros: "Not much about anything. The only good thing was the traveller assist counter as check in and bag drop was a nightmare. There we found out about baggage limits and having to pay for bag check. What a rip off. Luckily, we didn't pay for "special seating" as it was all the same."
Cons: "You can't even get a FREE cup of water!"
Pros: "No issue. Staff friendly"
Cons: "More onboard entertainment required"
Cons: "They don't tell you at the desk that they'd charge 50 dollars at the gate if you bring more than total 7 kilo of all your luggages"
Pros: "Very orderly boarding with pleasant flight cree"
Cons: "Surprised at lack of complimentary drinks but not a big drawback with a short flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I saw no information on the luggage policy, so my partner and I were charged $100 at the airport for two bags. In order to avoid the problem on the way back to Sydney, we prepaid the luggage for the return trip. When we got to the airport for the return, we were told that our luggage was overweight - this even though it was weighed on the way out and we left many things to a family member in Hobart and didn't add anything to bring back. The result was that in order to avoid additional luggage charges, we had to remove a couple of pairs of shoes and carry them in our carry-on's - a computer bag and pocketbook. The attendant was both adamant and discourteous when we tried to explain that we had paid ahead of time in good faith and had lightened our luggage in Sydney. I traveled the world for many years for business and this was among my top-ten worst experiences with any airline - I will never fly Jetstar again!"
Cons: "We showed up to the gate for the flight from Sydney to Tasmania, and found out that because our backpacks were over 7 kilograms, we'd have to pay $50 AUD on the spot to check them. We weren't the only ones who had no idea that was coming, and several people were dismayed to find out that had we checked them in online prior to arriving at the airport, it would've been about half that price. My backpack was barely 12 kilograms, and has never required checking on ANY flight prior to that, including small jumper flights. The person working at the gate was really short with everyone who was confused about the charge. On the return flight, in anticipation of having to check my bag again, I checked it in online ahead of time and paid the $27 AUD, only to arrive at the airport and find that they weren't weighing anyone's bags, so it was probably unnecessary. Not happy. They don't offer any complimentary drinks, even water, on the flights. It's like the Australian version of Spirit Airlines: a rip off."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed. The seat was small and I am 5. Ft 2 inches (about 103 pounds.) Not sure how anyone can fit into the seat. There was no leg room for me. First and last timeflying with jet star."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed as we were all standing in line for a bit. They finally gave us word that there was something wrong with the plane. I will give them Kudos however for finding us another plane and we finally made it 2 hours later.."
Cons: "Do not checkin well in advance of the flight. They assign seats from the back of the cabin. The later the checkin the further forward your seats will be."
Cons: "Wanted an earlier flight. Change fee was larger than the actual flight."
Cons: "My husband had a heart attack (two weeks before the flight) and was not allowed to fly until he was cleared by his cardiologist. We had to cancel our planned trip. I was hoping to get some money refunded from this ticket for compassionate reasons. Unlike some other airlines, this did not happen."
Pros: "The price is decent and I like that Jetstar supports World Vision!"
Cons: "Don't expect a comfortable flight."
Pros: "Their website and web check in is too basic!"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were professional."
Cons: "Cramped seating, no food or entertainment. Even for a short flight seats were Cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Leg space was simply non existent, did not manage to squeeze in without sitting competely sideways..."
Cons: "Not understanding that online baggage allowance was for checked bags; then having to pay, at the counter, $50/bag and $15 for extra weight over 15 kg. was unreasonably exorbitant. Especially, as there was a notice stating the extra weight was for anything over 20 kgs."
Cons: "it is pitiful practice to charge baggage fees that are almost as much as the airfare. not an honourable practice. will take my money elsewhere."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful when I had a problem."
Cons: "Both flights ran more than an hour late - not because of weather or anything reasonable, just because the airline were disorganised."
Pros: "I liked that we arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "Where to begin? Paying for baggage checked, paying for carry-on, paying to reserve a seat, no seat back pocket at any seat, paying for anything you want to eat or drink, even a cup of water is not provided-/you must pay. It would not surprise me if oxygen masks were needed that there would be a charge. I basically despise being nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "Easy boarding from front and rear of plane."
Cons: "Extra fees for baggage, very high $$."
Pros: "The planes were comfortable and boarding was easy. Staff was very gracious. I only gave the food and entertainment 1 star because there really wasn't any. But we weren't looking for any for the price we paid."
Pros: "Inexpensive, relatively speaking."
Pros: "The comfort is like any other economy flight."
Cons: "Did not realise it was so bare bone economy that they did not even serve water for free"
Pros: "They charged $94 for a bag at the airport. It is NOT CLEAR on Kayak that you have to book baggage ahead or face STEEP charges."
Pros: "I thought that the Captain dealt with the potential issue with the toilet in a very diplomatic manner and deserves an award for not breaking out in laughter. The crew were professional but also very friendly and cheerful."
Cons: "Nothing. Credit where credit is due."
Cons: "I was charged $50 for luggage on the flight. They don't offer water or food options on the flight, and a 5 hour flight should offer at least something! The flight was an hour delayed without warning or notification. Terrible experience"
Cons: "Beware of excess baggage fees!"
