Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Quantas was great"

Pros: "Movie selection pretty good"
Cons: "Terminal at LAX only allowed use of Admiral Club not Qantas lounge LAX international. 5 hr layover. No food. Poor facilities. 2 drink voucher. Not up to Qantas standard by a long shot. More importantly seats economy on American Airlines flight fro LAX to SYD very narrow and incredibly uncomfortable. Unable to rest comfortably to any degree or be able to have a meal when seat in front reclined and i am not a big guy. I fly often for work and also pay for Qantas club but this experience is making me think very differently about booking flights according to what the codeshare airline is. Dissapointed and not what I expect the standard of a Qantas codeshare airline to be."
Pros: "The Qantas service is generally good, and they do acknowledge Platinum members. Also the boarding delay was well advised."
Cons: "More the Dubai airport side, and the fact that the loung boarding arrangements are not intuitive."
Pros: "Efficient, reliable and good service overall."
Cons: "The crew do look about double the age of some other airlines and some (not all by any means) seem a bit over it. The return flight was much better than the outbound, on which the food seemed the same in premium as in economy, and was pretty ordinary."

Pros: "No problem apart from left a tad late"
Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Leg room"

Pros: "Love the inclusion of one checked bag in the ticket price. Like the free snack and hot drink."
Pros: "Flight on time and all that is expected for a short flight."
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: "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: "Courteous staff, comfortable seats, fast boarding. And one free bag."
Cons: "Snack wasn't very good, but that is a minor problem"
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: "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: "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"
Cons: "Delayed departure."
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"
Pros: "Every employee I've met has made my trip seamless and delightful. Your employees are very professional. Wish you were in the US!!"
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"
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: "Waiting time on transfer Staff attitude"
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: "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: "Great flight, average food."
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."
Pros: "I got there. Eventually."
Cons: "The flight was late due to weather, which is obviously nothignVirgin can control. But there was no one around the gate to talk to people. And the times changed. And there was no announcement until regular boarding time. But the best part...I apid for a second bag. My first bag was first off the carousel in Sydney. I saw my second one 3 days later in Atlanta after having the Dona lot of work to track it down. And supposedly I'm getting a refund in the charges, but the message from Va made it clear they don't have to refund the money per the contract of carriage. I can deal with the bag not arriving, but I had to do a lot of work to get it back (and Delta was far more helpful than Virgin even though there was never a Delta tag on the bag). And the attitude that they are doing me a favor by refunding the charge has left a very bad impression."
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: "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."
Pros: "Last flight of the evening with all perishable meals at half price."
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."
Cons: "The charges for the checked baggage. They are very steep."
Cons: "late flight inedible noodles staff with too much attitude"
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."
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!"
Cons: "Jetstar's luggage policy is a scame. Their carry on allowance is very small and I was charged 60 dollars to check a bag I never have to check at the fair. When I landed they couldn't remove the bags because of a storm, so I had to wait extra time for bags I shouldn't have needed to check. They also charge exorbitantly for anything on the flights. I wanted a cup of water and they asked for 4 dollars for a mini bottle. If their rates were cheap this would have been understandable, but that's not the case."
Pros: "No issue. Staff friendly"
Cons: "More onboard entertainment required"
Cons: "Boarding was late and congested Not organized"
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."
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: "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."
Pros: "Boarding was reasonable except that passengers were allowed to take too much carry on luggage which caused delays on boarding. Why not enforce the guideline. Food was terrible, a stale sandwich, however the voucher compensated somewhat. Service was good, the lady pills was very informative."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Departing with 2 hour delay was unacceptable. Had to purchase a new ticket on a different airline."
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."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Leg space was simply non existent, did not manage to squeeze in without sitting competely sideways..."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful when I had a problem."
Pros: "Everything. Great customer service"
Cons: "There is no service at all! The crew is mediocre!"
Cons: "Need to include luggage fee on price."
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
Pros: "Inexpensive, relatively speaking."
Cons: "Nothing but the fair is included"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Paying for seat and Niger luggage"
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"
Cons: "No entertainment"
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."
Pros: "Crew were fine"
Cons: "Kids were literally using my seat as a jungle gym. Staff should have controlled kids"
Cons: "Take off was delayed. Beware, since this is the last flight of the day, there's very little room for delays arriving in Sydney as all flights must land at Sydney Airport by 10:30pm. We were lucky that we just made the cut off"
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."
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."
