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

Cons: "Our departure was 30 minutes late."

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"

Pros: "Quick and easy flight"

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

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

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."

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

Pros: "The ice with my champagne"
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours with no nappies for my 1 year old ... no priority boarding for families with shattered children ... lying boarding staff Vallentyn or something like that ... no ability to check in online due to a message saying we had a special request ... we didn't and have checked online to HNL and SIN recently with JQ without a problem."

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Mostly on time and friendly staff for most the journey. No major complaints"
Cons: "Seats have less leg room than air asia. :("

Pros: "Nobody told i couldnt bring luggage had to pay extranfee"

Pros: "Sure the low prices are appealing but are they worth it? Not unless you enjoy wasting half your vacation at airports waiting for 5 hour delayed flights or being rerouted to a different city and spending 2 hours of your time on hold trying to get them to rebook you."
Cons: "Sure the low prices are appealing but are they worth it? Not unless you enjoy wasting half your vacation at airports waiting for 5 hour delayed flights or being rerouted to a different city and spending 2 hours of your time on hold trying to get them to rebook you. They charge you for everything including water and if you don't pay for your checked bag ahead of time it costs $160 to check at airport."

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."

Pros: "I like the Punctuality and the way the plane was loaded- very efficient Plane was very tidy and clean"
Cons: "The menu is mediocre as far as the snacks are concerned. More imagination needed"

Pros: "Slightly clean"
Cons: "This is the worst of budget airlines. You check in, instead giving you a head up on all the concern, I have to go back to the customer service 3 times. My recommendation for people in Australia is to fly Virgin Australia, and skip on Jetstar and Qantas."

Cons: "Jetstar nickels and dimes you to death. $4.00 for a cup of coffee as an example."

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Relatively spacious seats and new enough aircraft - could have been a good short haul flight."
Cons: "One crew member became unavailable due to personal issue 5mins before boarding. Boarded late then PA system fault held us on the ground, then deplaned and replaned for a 2 1/2 hour late departure. Two delaying problems on one flight indicative of an airline that doesn't have its systems and processes properly sorted out."

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."

Pros: "Crew & Air craft was good"
