Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Better informed available for self serve in back"
Pros: "Had 3 seats to myself as plane wasn’t full."

Cons: "Delayed departing."
Pros: "Everything was fine, a bit late taking off but the time was made up"
Pros: "Great crew and comfortable sear"
Cons: "Older plane so entertainment system left a bit to be desired"
Pros: "The crew members were very helpful and the seating was very comfortable."
Cons: "I almost missed my return flight. It was a 9:40pm flight but the lady at the counter said that because i bought my ticket early, the flight time changed to 8:40pm because of time change. I think that needs to be factored in when selling tickets don't surprise customers."
Cons: "Having back up/extra meals for people with dietary requirements as they may not have been able to request them."
Pros: "Great entertainment, food, and crew."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and very helpful. Good choice of movies, tv shows, podcasts and music."
Cons: "When the person in front put his seat back there was no room at all for me. He had it back for the whole 12 hour flight except when the staff asked him to put it up for service."
Cons: "No back-of-seat screen, overhead screens lacking enough contrast to see much. No matter, I looked out the window instead!"
Pros: "The movie selection was broad and current."
Cons: "There were plenty of movies to watch, but having more would be awesome!"
Pros: "We eventually got to our destination safely although very stressed"
Cons: "The plane from Sydney to Brisbane was awful. The section where we were seated had a permanent cover over the windows, ours and others near us, over a large section. This was really claustrophobic. It was like being in a closed in tin can. It should be disclosed that the window seat is not a window seat so you have the option to change to somewhere else. The seats are really quite cramped. A huge delay"
Pros: "The 787 dreamliner does an excellent job flying, with reduced cabin noise."
Cons: "The passengers with a small child behind us were very noisy and bumping/pushing into our seat-backs way too much. The boarding was a bit chaotic. Defining the boarding sequence based on row numbers should help."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized and confusing."
Cons: "Great! On time"
Pros: "Great leg room. Good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seats could be a bit softer"
Pros: "They gave us food vouchers and snacks for our delayed flight. The choice of movies available was great. the flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Our international flight was delayed by over 2 hours. When we called to rebook our connection flight from Brisbane to Cairns, the agent on the phone told us they were unable to help us. The online website also did not allow us to rebook. When we got to Brisbane, the only flight remaining for us was a flight 2hours later with connection. Also, the phone jack was so poor that half of the time you couldn’t hear the movie."
Cons: "Disembarking.... No gate so had to get bus to shuttle to terminal... 1 bus for nearly 1000 passengers.... Took nearly 90 minutes to get off plane."
Pros: "Super easy flight out of Auckland. Arrived in Nelson ahead of schedule."
Cons: "...the person coughing behind me..."

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable in aisle of very last row next to airport. Had to ask to be moved. Food was marginal. Small portions."
Pros: "The flight crew allows you to sleep the majority of the flight."
Cons: "Plane was dated. No outlets at seats so I couldn’t plug in my CPAP machine. Seats crowded compared to other international airlines."

Cons: "floor of plane not clean full of crumbs"
Pros: "The staff was so attentive and friendly"
Cons: "The seats could use a little more leg room"

Cons: "They didn’t pick up trash very often. Had to store it on the floor by my feet."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was mushy Boarding notice was short The price of the flight"
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"
Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"
Pros: "Good food. You"
Pros: "Movie selection was excellent"
Cons: "They missed giving me a chocolate!"
Cons: "Toll staff during boarding rude"
Pros: "Excellent service as always. Luggage was checked through to the final destination."
Cons: "The passenger next to me was too big to have the armrest down."

Pros: "Good food, movies and just 10x better than discount airlines"
Pros: "It was a safe flight."
Cons: "I have flown Qantas several times across the Pacific and have had much better experiences on the longer flights. Everything was delayed, the plane was small, and the food was pretty bad, even by airplane food standards. I just expected more given what I have come to expect from Qantas."
Pros: "Lacks a bar and for that reason is a touch behind Virgin Australia internationally. Great seats though"
Pros: "Fortunately for me my wife had to cancel her return flight in the last minute so seat was ok"
Cons: "Type of seats not comfortable. Even MD380 seats were better"
Pros: "On Time performance"
Pros: "Food was more than I expected!!"
Cons: "The length of the flight but that's not anyone's fault!!!"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food was nothing special. Cheese and crackers"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Food and cramped seats"
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "The pricing seems low when purchasing the ticket, but we were charged $45/bag for our carryon bags that could easily have fit in the overhead bins (and on a separate flight with another airline that is what we did). Seems like a money grab to charge for the carryon if it weighs more than 7g or whatever small amount. Just take that cost into account when booking your flight."
Cons: "A little more leg room"
Pros: "Nothing - terrible airline"
Cons: "In flight entertainment, free water, less strict on carry on weight"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "The overcharge for baggage being slightly over weight"
Cons: "Be sure to book your luggage in advance to avoid high fees."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and disembarking."
Cons: "Seat pitch awful. No leg room for me. I'm 6ft 1inch talk so not that big. Ok for a short flight but no longer."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the plane was nice."
Cons: "I bought a bottle of water to take on the plane and had to get rid of it as there was a baggage check for liquids after security and before boarding. Every thing on board cost, even a can of pop but we were not allowed to bring any drinks. Seems like a way of gouging customers. Also no free entertainment option."
Cons: "The coffee"
Pros: "Sunshine Coast airport is so small getting through security is a five minute process."
Cons: "And no announcements re the delay until the very last minute."
Pros: "The plane got us to Darwin."
Cons: "$60 per checked bag, even at 30 per bag its still more expensive than other carriers, so if you have a bag to check, skip Jetstar"
Cons: "Their luggage policy is a joke. Boarding is a cluster. Cheap airline."
Cons: "The attendants at the desk for check in were rud. The flight was delayed. No service, food or entertainment during the flight"
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Check is cthe confusing. First you cannot check in online. It was a domestic flight but check in was in international terminal. The lines were confusing and we had to change lines because of the confusion. There was no one to answer your querstions. I had to interrupt an check in person who was helping someone else so not to be late for flight."
Cons: "Crew in bad mood."
Pros: "I had a very good experience. When you fly with Jetstar, you need to be aware of a few things: it is a no frills airline. Therefore, (1) you need to eat before you board, bring your own food, or pay for any food / drink on the flight, (2) you have virtually no luggage allowance. Make sure you call them and pay for your luggage BEFORE you go to the airport. The pre-pay prices are very reasonable, but they are dramatically more if you wait to add luggage until arrival at the airport. Overall, the personnel were very friendly, and it was a good flight...just make sure that you are aware of what I just mentioned."
Pros: "clean plane, lots of legroom on our dash 8"
Cons: "Not that I “didn’t like”.....only gave 1* for good & entertainment as there wasn’t any!"
Cons: "Bad weather. Also in the air... but the captain now it well what to do. We're very happy tp be landing in storm at Darwin."
Pros: "I wasn’t able to select a seat and was assigned a middle seat, but the service desk agent at ADL moved me to an aisle seat without charge. Food was reasonable value and tasty, if cold (who refrigerates a muffin?!)"
Cons: "Usual Jetstar pain having to call to add extra luggage (qantas booking) and then curiously Jetstar telling me to ring qantas for an updated itinerary"
Cons: "The floor next to my seat looked like someone had emptied their chip packet on it. The plane was late arriving but surely there’s time to vacuum up the mess!"
Pros: "The price was right, but there was nothing especially nice about the flight. You definitely get what you pay for though, and it was absolutely the best price hands down."
Cons: "Definitely small seating space and no-frills."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very good"
Cons: "The flight was 5hrs 45 mins late"
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."
Cons: "Arrived in Melbourne 2 1/2 hours late."
Cons: "We were on the tarmak an additional 30 minutes, then in the air for an additional hour due to the weather. It would have been really nice if they had offered us bottled water or something. I was very surprised that even to get water it was a $4 charge. I likely will not be flying Jetstar again. I appreciate a company not nickle and diming with customers."
Pros: "Fairly much on time"
Cons: "My muffin was served to me cold. $5 for a cold muffin. Next time I’ll get a hot chocolate instead."
Cons: "You charged me an astronomical rate to check 2 bags! over $300!?! Really?!?! I will avoid your airline at all costs."
Pros: "The crew including the check in and ground crew were excellent, very friendly and patient."
Cons: "Kiwi didn't offer the option of paying for checked bags and they charged $100 more than it'd normally cost. Great job!"
Cons: "Late 2 hrs going to noosa. Cancel flight coming home. Then replace flight delayed 2 hrs as well"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late"
Pros: "On time no delays"
Cons: "At the gate at Noosa there was minimal announcements but it's a tiny airport so I guess that's normal Deplaning in Sydney crew should have said the front exit had s ramp rear had stairs so if you had a knee strain you could make a choice"
Pros: "Excellent boarding process."
Cons: "No drinks or snacks"
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: "Who knows the weight of the bag ahead of time. Should allow for bags to be check day of without penalty."
Pros: "Nothing was wrong with my flight."
Cons: "No entertainment units, and it was a long flight."
Cons: "Boarding on tarmac in the rain, no cover over walkway. Smallest and tightest seating in the airline business."
Pros: "Last time I'm using jet star with their constant delayed departure times. Almost missed my international connecting flight due to an almost 2 hour delay. Crew were awesome but seriously jetstar get it together"
Pros: "Flight was delayed and board said new time was 40 mins later when plane arrives. Gate then changed very close to boarding time."
Pros: "I like the fact that when you book a flight you then have to pay for a seat .... What do you expect us to stand ! then you have to pay for baggage and all the other hidden costs .... after you have payed !"
Cons: "Dont have a credit card and they say we will be only taking credit card for beverages . On the flight over they said the reason was because we came from Bali and had no change but why the flight from Adelaide so again couldn't buy anything... Great service !"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Delayed more than 1hr"
Pros: "Nothing - terrible service."
Cons: "All they cared about was charging us for our carryon. They lost my luggage and I missed my meetings in Sydney. Nobody to complain to they have no staff in Sydney. They also tagged my luggage to the wrong passenger and it was an ordeal to get it back once they found it. Talk about a security breach !! Never fly them again !!! Will be sending info to media!! Paid $320 for extra baggage fees coming from an Air Canada business flight ticket with carry-on - they didn't care!! Kelta at ck in only cared about charging us and when I told her to put the bags in my name she said don't tell me how to do my job I know - and then bag is in another person's name and he had to leave asap in Sydney and it was an ordeal to get report done!! They charge for coffee on board and flight attendants were also rude!! Where is the customer service? Terrible !!"
Pros: "The flight was okay, as usual. You get what you pay for with cheap flights. There wasn't much leg room in economy, but that was to be expected. The staff were good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, without any explanation as to why. This made it very difficult to fulfill work requirements upon landing. I would have appreciated some kind of explanation / apology. Also, I don't like the in-flight gambling ("raffle") option. Jetstar hands out scratchie tickets for $5.00 a pop. The odds of winning (the car) are ludicrous and gambling is a serious problem in Victoria. So, I don't think it is appropriate. The in-flight food was absurdly expensive. Finally - and, perhaps, most importantly - the flight wasn't smooth. It didn't appear to be due to turbulence, but (rather) the pilot / s. The plane kept dipping up and down, making us feel sick."
Pros: "Pilot did an outstanding job while landing in Sydney! Smoothest landing during my recent 11 leg journey...5 of which were jet star."
Cons: "I was charged $50 and made to check a bag that I had previously carried on during 5 other flights."
Cons: "The fact that they did not mention ahead of time that if I check bag at airport there was going to be a 50 dollar charge but if I had checked the night before on line only a 25 dollar charge. That does not seem fair expecially since they don't seen you email or anything telling you this in advance. The ticket agent at the airport told me."
Pros: "The whole experience was good. It's better than most budget airlines"
Cons: "The movie selection wasn't geared to someone like me. I paid for the entertainment pack but ended up watching reruns of TVs shows I'd already seen."
Cons: "Change the boardkng Gate last minute. Impossible to Check in our luggages with the iPhone app. Extra cosy 160$ ridiculous!!!! Few flight personnel for checkin, long waiting Time ."
Pros: "The flight was canceled, BUT they put us on a later flight and sent an email and text message to let us know, then gave us food vouchers to use in the airport while we were waiting. So they did just about everything they could to make the delay acceptable."
Cons: "The flight was canceled... It would have been nice if the food vouchers could be used for alcohol... :-) Baggage fees at the airport are ridiculous ($15 per kilo). Make sure to prepay for your checked luggage."
Pros: "Plane arriving on time and offloading luggage so quickly."
Cons: "Did not buy any food."
Cons: "There was no option to pay to upgrade carry on baggage like on Tiger air, so rather than being able to just take 12kg carry on as I had on the way north I was forced to check a bag with 2kgs more allowance than I needed. The flight was delayed by an hour, which I understand is often no fault of the air line always. But the addition of waiting for baggage made to trip cumbersome and long."
