Scores according to KAYAK customer 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: "Smooth boarding and landing. Flight time is great. Not very many disruptions in the overnight flight."
Cons: "The check-in process is overly long. Being a low cost carrier doesn't mean you need to sacrifice efficiency on this part. This could be much smoother with an automated bag drop are for international flights or a check-in at the oversized X-ray machine (since so many people bring skis & surfboards."
Cons: "Could have left on time 2 hours late leaveing NZ"
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hours late. Short flight ended up being over 2 hrs as landing conditions were not suitable and plane had to keep hovering around the airport for a long time before it was cleared to land. Crew was very nice. Seats very roomy in economy."
Cons: "I learned that JetStar was the cheapest option for a reason. Check-in at Narita was a nightmare. Without any luggage to check it was over 1.5 hour wait just to check in."

Cons: "Not enough to room in seats for a flight this long"
Pros: "The crew and flight were ok."
Cons: "The checked baggage policy is lacking"

Cons: "Never in 30+ years of flying have I not been able to ticket both legs of a trip at the start, especially both legs on same airline. We had to pay $60 AUS to Check my daughter’s carry on at the gate because her backpack was over 7 kilos, with no option to have it count toward our overall max weight. Also had 4 hour layover but could not do the manual transfer to next leg until 3 hours before flight, putting a dent into our layover plans. I will avoid using this airline due to hassles in the future."

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: "Staff were kind and attentive. Got the emergency aisle seat without asking which is always a bonus."
Cons: "Because I booked through Kayak it wasn't clear to me that baggage and in fact meals were not included! I got stung 16000 yen for my bag and was too late to order meal service . I had to grab what I could in departures. I would like this to be clearer in the price comparison on the kayak website. Wouldn't have chosen this flight if I'd known."
Cons: "Do not recommend, beware of non standard baggage rules. Book baggage online 3hours before the flight"

Cons: "$100+ for luggage, no blanket or pillows, $4 Water"
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."
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."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and Jetstardid not bother to send an email advising flight cancellation."
Cons: "I flew from New Zealand to Australia and did not get a meal, or any media. I had just previously flown the other way with another airline and got both of these things since it is an international flight. The weirdest thing is that there was no complementary snacks or even water. You had to pay for it."
Cons: "They don't serve glass of water,want to sell small bottle for 4$"
Cons: "Unbelievable charges for baggage check of $300. Separate charges for each leg of flights. Kayak didn't let me book a bag ahead of time. The worst airline ever."

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: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "This airline is worse than most low cost US based airlines. Both times I have flown with them it has been a disaster. I only booked with them because of price and because I did not know they were low cost. You get no food, no drinks, no entertainment, they gouge u for baggage. Stay away from jet star pay just a little more to fly a good airline."
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: "Jetstar nickels and dimes you to death. $4.00 for a cup of coffee as an example."
Cons: "I arrived for my flight from Narita to Melbourne only to find that I had to walk over 1,000 meters to get to the check-in and terminal even though I was told to go to the Terminal 2 / 3 stop in the Narita train. Once I got to the check-in counter, the line was very long and everyone seemed overworked. By the time I go tot he counter it was getting late. I tried to check in but apparently my eVisa had expired. I have been traveling to Australia countless number of times and normally they process a new visa directly at the airport. I was told by the staff that "this was not possible" and waved me away. They said there was no way to check-in. I stood by the side of the counter and quickly found my own on line service to process a visa. I was able to get my Visa in 10 minutes, and applied for it on my iPhone! My Visa came through, but only just after the cut off time for the flight check in. Despite that fact that flight had not departed, and would not for another 30 minutes or so, they simply closed up the booking counter and left me standing there... They wouldn't even give me any information on what to do or whether my flight would be canceled or credited back. This rates as one of my worst travel experiences. I went back to my hotel in Tokyo, and then decided to fly the next morning on Singapore air. I did not book on Kayak the second time. I don't think I would ever fly JetStar again."
Pros: "Best crew I've ever had on a flight."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
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."
Cons: "No grace. No food. No drink. No leg room. Seat backs that make you lean forward. Fees made flight cost more than Quantas."
Pros: "even thought they departed late we landed on time"
Cons: "both flights departed late"
Cons: "No options for check in baggage when I purchased the ticket online, so baggage cost me $260 at check-in. Agents at the desk were extremely indifferent and borderline rude, overall extremely unhelpful. Airplane interior was dingy, seat cushions were worn down and flat, extremely limited leg space (I cannot stress enough how inadequate the leg space was), no entertainment. No complimentary drinks, not even water."
