Airline reviews

Pros: "They cancelled return flight and were rude when I tried to rebook; they also weigh luggage and charge extra; had one kind agent who helped; won’t fly again and won’t use cheap flights"

Cons: "Flights to & from Sydney to Melbourne were ok!"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cheaper add booked luggage costs."

Cons: "Our departure was 30 minutes late."

Cons: "The seat leg room is getting smaller and smaller. You can't put your seat back- you'll crush the person behind! And I'm short!!"

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding at AVV Airport."
Cons: "Seats were slightly uncomfortable but fine for short flight. There was no entertainment. The crew could have been more enthusiastic."

Pros: "The price is in good relation with the quality of service."
Cons: "The attention of the flight coordinator was poor, is a gross person under pressure and with really bad manners"

Pros: "Security was super fast. Boarding was straight forward."
Cons: "Jetstar baggage policy is, as most know, annoying. 7 kg limit on carry on bags or else you have to pay for extra “weight allowance.” Quite annoying since I can’t very well weigh my bag at home and it really changes nothing. You still bring the bag on the pla e. You just have to pay extra"

Cons: "No thrills airline. Pay for any extras (snack, drink) no entertainment"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "That l got sms messages regarding my flight details and where to collect my luggage!! Awesome"

Pros: "Travel good"
Cons: "There was a delate"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Flight delayed 3.5 hours"

Pros: "I liked the organisation"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Check in was quick easy and we boarded fast"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks"

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: "Good crew, easy flight. Front and rear plane entrance and exit."
Cons: "You have to pay exorbitant amounts for food and drink - no complimentary anything."

Pros: "Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats weren't the comfortable"

Pros: "Friendliness of the staff."
Cons: "Lateness of flight"

Pros: "Leg room"

Pros: "It wasn't cancelled like previous flight. It arrived and departed o time . No inflight entertainment at all."
Cons: "The cramping was incredible. No storage , people's bag from seat behind encroaching on foot space in front. Knees in my back from behind passenger. Seat design exceptionally upright, no head rest wings to support a dosing head. Torture chamber really."

Pros: "Great crew that were all very friendly, Water was provided for free"
Cons: "Meals are not provided and drinks other than water will cost you My luggage was not automatically transferred into the connecting flight"

Pros: "Quick and easy, just as expected, staff professional and. Friendly"

Cons: "Only one problem was the temperature was too warm during flight."

Pros: "kylie the ground staff for Jetstar was brilliant"

Pros: "Flight crew polite and helpful considering it was a full flight"
Cons: "Random carry on checks penalising customers, especially embarrassing for Asian customers pulled aside and penalised in front of others for overweight hand baggage. Apparently no consideration for cultural respect and saving face. I felt very badly for the lady affected. Hand luggage checks should apply to all or nobody - random checks are nothing but a price gouge. If you're going to do it, at least give a voucher of some sort or some kind of incentive to choose jeststar again. Extremely poorly thought out procedure."

Pros: "Easy check in, child's play room even though we are not parents, spacious lobby"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Flight was smooth and landed earlier than time."
Cons: "Domestic flights don't offer food and entertainment which is difficult for families with children."

Pros: "Checkin in Avalon, Melbourne EXCELLENT. Wife in wheelchair. Agent checked in all our bags. Then had to change planes in Sydney where they tried to charge $80 per bag for extra bags that Melbourne agent had checked in for free. Avalon longer trip to airport but fewer problems and people--and better Jetstar employees."
Cons: "When you are treated humanely and special, there is little not to like."

Pros: "The plane was not full plenty of room to move to a better seat with a window."
Cons: "No entertainment so was a bit boring plus why pay for seats when they move you to a different anyway."

Cons: "They choose to weigh bags just as we were boarding and as I was 1kg , I had to check in my bag , but apparently it has to go on the next flight. So now I have to wait for 2.5 hers in Sydney for my bag and had to pay $50 for the inconvenience. I would expect this from Tiger not Jetstar"

Cons: "Do not recommend, beware of non standard baggage rules. Book baggage online 3hours before the flight"

Cons: "Food was horrendous and staff service was poor considering we were in business."

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: "Jetstar is a comparatively budget airline owned by Qantas. We were in Business class from Honolulu to Sydney and that's a well timed flight considering it takes a little over 10 hours, leaving Honolulu at 8:30am and arriving in Sydney at 3:00pm. We normally fly Qantas business for international flights but in this case it's almost double the cost. Jetstar Business doesn't have lie flat beds, it provides wide and comfortable seats and they don't recline very far, but as this particular flight is completely in daylight hours it doesn't matter too much. We will always choose this particular flight because of the combination of timing and cost, so well done Jetstar."

Pros: "Boarding was good and check in!"
Cons: "Dont have any entertainement and dont have usb to charge cellphones!"

Cons: "Delayed departure which affected my travel plans"

Pros: "Speed of flight time and being advised of our delay"
Cons: "Cramped boarding gate and slow boarding via Tarmac. Food and inflight drinks too expensive."

Cons: "Seat. Slow boarding"

Cons: "Legroom was really tight"

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Lack of room when seated"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Return journey of our flight was moved so disrupted our onward flights. Getting in touch with customer services was impossible. Only way is to 'live chat' then they tell you their hands are tied and to speak to the 'refunds team' who don't have a number and will 'be in touch with you'. They won't be. Then outbound flight was cancelled at the last minute. Waiting for a refund........and waiting. If it's a choice between jet star or swimming to your next destination, swim."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled at the last minute. Jetstar doesn't have a customer service line you can call so it was very difficult to re-book. The chat was clunky and not compatable with mobile phone. Then they couldn't refund the extra fees I had paid for assigned seats - that is a "different chat site" though I was reassigned a Quantas ticket and given tickets that had us split up on that flight. They couldn't give me a booking number or anything like that for the Quantas flight either. I will just save the hassle and fly with Quantas next time. Unimpressed with JetStar and their customer service was terrible. Still out the refund money and frankly it is worth it not to have to deal with them again."

Cons: "Had a misunderstanding with a visa waiver for my girlfriend who's is English. The particular hostess that brought it to our attention was quite dull and sour with the whole situation. After about 15 minutes of basically saying she couldn't board the flight, another jet star person came over and quickly ingot Ed us that we could purchase a visa waiver on the spot for 750 baht. Problem solved and his mannerism were far more bright and cheerful. A smile goes a long way"

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: "it was on time..."
Cons: "charging for entertainment...no blankets for an overnight 6hour long flight... customer service is just the worse I've seen on an airline. Don't get me started on the baggage allowance surcharges... Still found one very friendly staff at the Sydney Airport though, there is still hope. Get on it Jetstar, get on it."

Pros: "Terrible seat"

Pros: "On checking in, they charged us a penalty fee, and then our flight got cancelled at the last minute without any options to get back to the city in time for work. Had to book a last minute flight with a different airline and couldn't get luggage back in time to take it along!"
