Cons: "Seats are just too cramped Timing is woeful. 2:30am flight to arrive at 6:30am is awful!"
Cons: "No room and EVERYTHING was an extra charge---we didn't even get water without a charge."
Pros: "The advertised price before finding out about the Bundles."
Cons: "All the ridiculous add-ones for seat preference, food, entertainment, extra leg room, etc. Very misleading!! Difficulty with online check-in and trying to determine baggage needs before actually getting to the airport and then having to pay a ridiculously higher amount. Would have been better to pay the extra and fly on an airlines that puts customer service first."
Pros: "Crew, food and timelines"
Cons: "A metal bar was poking into my back from the seat (17D) - as if the padding had worn away and the seat frame exposed. Tray table had not been cleaned and was covered in crumbs"
Pros: "Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats weren't the comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing it was horrendous"
Cons: "My seat was broken with a big metal bar digging into my back all the flight and got given the thinnest blanket to try had and stop the problem total and utter was of time"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Since more chairs have been added there is no leg room! My husband had difficulty getting in and out. We will not be flying jet star for longer flights"
Pros: "Very pleasant staff on board and land crew. Difficult to judge food as it was only a snack and as the flight was only just over the hour there was no entertainment ."
Pros: "Quick and easy, just as expected, staff professional and. Friendly"
Pros: "Hot chocolate was good, and toasty was large. Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane could have been cleaner"
Cons: "Only one problem was the temperature was too warm during flight."
Cons: "I didn't check in my bag, didn't bother to weigh it. They weighed it at boarding and it was too heavy (my bad, I probably should have checked) and had to be checked in. My gripe is that they made me pay $60 even though my ticket included a free piece of luggage. Their argument was that I didn't use that facility at check-in and therefore waived the right to that piece of check baggage."
Pros: "Easy check in, child's play room even though we are not parents, spacious lobby"
Cons: "No comment"
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: "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: "I was charged $250 for luggage because my wife and I each had a 50 lb. Suitcase. A massive rip off. I will avoid Jetstar whenever possible."
Pros: "Arrived safely, flight quick. Staff friendly"
Cons: "Price so costly for a quick trip for family function"
Cons: "Delayed departure which affected my travel plans"
Pros: "Plane was unable to get to a gate after landing but we were kept informed."
Cons: "Paying four dollars for an orange juice."
Pros: "Service is very good"
Cons: "Food is inadequate for vegetarians and vegans. It is not too difficult to adjust the menus to include more interesting food variations. Virgin, Tiger domestically make a bigger effort. Jetstar cheeses have animal rennet - not necessary in this day and age. Toastie could be cheese and tomato, not only with bacon.. I complained to Jetstar head office, and the response was inadequate. Proof is if they make an effort and change. If another airlines is similar price with better food, I would automatically go with the other carrier. It's all part of hospitality. Jetstar are stubborn. Irrespective of being a low cost airlines - no excuse."
Pros: "Nobody told i couldnt bring luggage had to pay extranfee"
Pros: "Their website and web check in is too basic!"
Pros: "On time, polite, friendly crew. Smooth flight. All good. And good value for money."
Pros: "It was quiet. Quick and comfortable waiting for our flight. I enjoyed the meat pie, coffee and service while waiting. I was aloud to have a nap. Felt refreshed. Kayak gave me a great price. I saved $400 for my family flights all up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but it was an accumulation of air conjestion towards the later flights. Overall we were able to charge our phones and get comfortable before flying."
Cons: "Flight delayed out of Adelaide. Terminal 4 at Tullamarine is badly designed - drop of/fpick up long way from booking in and gates long way from booking in area. Disembarking on to tarmac in pouring rain unpleasant - no umbrellas"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "On time"
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."
