Airline reviews

Cons: "I pay for the airspace above my seat - I didn't get it! Flight attendant obese and not me twice. QF need to lock their cattle class seat backs - insufficient seat pitch to allow leaning."

Pros: "Crew and plane were fine. Nothing super special. Definitely less desirable a flight than European."
Cons: "The international flights Quantas runs are fine. Beware of JETSTAR this airline is somehow even worse than value airlines in the United States. They weigh bags at check in, harass customers, the worst experience I have ever had in the air. Fly anyone else. JETSTAR IS BEYOND TERRIBLE."

Cons: "Bigger seats, more room between the seets."

Cons: "The flight from Cairns to JFK that I originally purchased was supposed to be 7 hours of travel time less than what I actually ended up with. The airline changed my flights 4 times after originally booking."

Cons: "Boarding wasn’t differentiated. Flight departure was delayed but they made up time en route."

Pros: "staff were nice"
Cons: "-priority boarding isn’t priority -only vegetarian food"

Pros: "Quantas Entertainment app was great!"
Cons: "Quantas seems to have frequent gate changes. You have to pay attention. No WiFi in terminals despite posted signs."

Cons: "Lost 2 of 3 bags. Still don’t have them. Some staff very helpful and empathetic. Some staff very rude and abrasive. Didn’t want to take ownership and work to correct the problem. Had a “not my problem” attitude"

Pros: "Staff were attentive. Meals were good. I had an exit row so had good leg room"
Cons: "Dimmer light in toilet as every time someone went in we we subjected to bright toilet light."

Pros: "The onboard crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Qantas should have updated the passengers during the very long delay. A 4 1/2 hour delay warrants a little better treatment of there passengers but they left us in the dark as to what was going on. Even if there’s no new information, they should say so."

Pros: "The seat is narrow compare with other airlines."

Pros: "The crew was spectacular. Could not have been more friendly and helpful. Went out of their way to provide great service. The food was great, especially the breakfast!"
Cons: "The coach seats were wide enough, but a couple of more inches leg room would have been better."

Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."

Pros: "Excellent in-flight service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Despite being fully booked, the 14 hour flight was peaceful and easy. Every seat had a pillow & blanket upon embarkation, the lights were dimmed after dinner and it wasn't difficult to sleep. Staff were very friendly & accommodating."
Cons: "Smallish serves of food (dinner & light breakfast) for a long flight"

Pros: "canin pressure and comfort level was excellent"
Cons: "screens from other seats are bright"

Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."

Pros: "Super easy flight out of Auckland. Arrived in Nelson ahead of schedule."
Cons: "...the person coughing behind me..."

Pros: "The variety of television/movies was fantastic."
Cons: "Overall, the crew was rude. Short answers, extremely long delays helping passengers. A different crew in the same flight was so much better! So I know it wasn’t “typical.” They ran out of 2 of the 3 dinner options before serving us. I assumed they would start with our row at breakfast to ensure we got first pick. Nope. Served last once again (and we were in the middle, so why last???)"

Pros: "Nice friendly staff."
Cons: "The snack provided was very unhealthy, and they did not have any alcohol available."

Pros: "The plane was newish and had some more modern conveniences. Foot rest, phone spot with USB plug. New light/shade window shades. Newer style tough screen TV."
Cons: "My only fault was that the food was not terribly good. Pasta was gluey."

Pros: "Crew fantastic, food was delicious, boarding efficient - but they use a 737 on this leisure route which is a bit arduous for what is a 6+ hour flight."
Cons: "Use of 737 and lacklustre entertainment system compared to A330"

Cons: "The gate displayed on the boards in the departures area did not match the actual gate (17C). Confused a lot of passengers as the gate displayed was through the international area. Limited seating at the gate."

Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."

Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."

Cons: "Service in the cabin was very bad all the staff look lost they had no idea what the wher doing like first day on the job with no training"

Pros: "On time departing and arriving.Flight attendants pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing...was a great flight"

Cons: "Flight was late boarding at LAX and at Sydney had to be bused to terminal which was slow. Otherwise all was great."

Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Food was tasteless just warm and food servied don't reflect the menu."

Cons: "Rigid with assigned infant seats. Would not move us to bassinet bulk head area though we would pay for it. Flight went well regardless."

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "The food, movies and service."

Pros: "No issues, quick and friendly."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight being delayed so I missed a meeting"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "when my bag got lost"

Pros: "Ok selection of TV content. Pilot focussed on getting us to Perth quickly."
Cons: "Crew put lights out right after take off - hoping to shut us up and keep us out of the way. Poor movie selection due to streaming limitations (license issues for wireless streaming of content)"

Pros: "Loved the crew, very friendly and helpful. Liked having my own tv screen on the back of the seat. Food was great."
Cons: "Wish there was more leg room and ability to lie down. It was a 12-13 hour flight."

Pros: "Gf food was good"
Cons: "Tight searing"

Pros: "Great business class hard product"

Pros: "Dinner meal"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "The entertainment had a great selection"
Cons: "I would have liked another round of drinks. Also people were still walking around and to the toilet when the fasten seat belt sign was on..."

Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"

Pros: "It was nice that the flight was not full and we were able to stretch out in neighbouring seats. It was nice that the lights were left low for longer than a night's sleep, as not everyone wants to sleep at the same time on such a long flight."
Cons: "The food service was slow, and refills were not offered as has been the case on many other trans Pacific flights I have been on. Also we did not receive the mid flight snack that was listed on the menu. The meals themselves were not as tasty, varied, nor as filling as those on Fiji Airways and United Airlines. My dinner had only pasta with sauce in the container, with no other vegetable offered. I was still hungry after eating my breakfast, and I was only offered tea, when I expected both a choice of juice and tea."

Pros: "Loved the hot chocolate and chocolate."
Cons: "No choices available for dinner and other snacks not very good."

Pros: "I love Qantas in general. I paid for exit row seats and it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "Food was ok but I've had better in Qantas."

Pros: "Even though these are older aircraft, they have been refurbished and in the premium economy service the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The leg rest didn't go up very far."

Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"

Pros: "Very friendly crew. Comfortable flight."

Pros: "no amazing crew and no warm and fuzzies"
Cons: "Pre bought meals and wasn't permitted hot chocolate for children. Eventually given and nothing said. On the journey over hot choc offered. Not a big deal. I think you fall down in customer service by not supplying a little like coffee and hot choc and a free snack. Possably will avoid flying Jetstar again. Service is paramount. And no entertainment available because it wasnt a long haul just a short haul though international. Mmmmm no to Jetstar i feel. I own a resort and i know what customer service must feel like."

Cons: "A little more leg room"

Pros: "The crew were friendly and tickets were a great price"
Cons: "No legroom at all, very cramped"

Pros: "It was a full flight and all went smoothly"
Cons: "It could have been on time bu these things happen"

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

Cons: "Average service, too bad they are partnered/owned by Qantas"

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: "Seat was uncomfortable, crew was lovely"
Cons: "Tired seats should be updated."

Cons: "Boarding routine Space available"

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: "yes it was"
Cons: "Music!!"

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."

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

Pros: "Good seat. Good service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I think free coffee and tea would be a good touch. Back to Quantis I go . all staff good. Jan"

Cons: "Not enough to room in seats for a flight this long"

Pros: "They did try to make up time in the air"
Cons: "Plane was a little late arriving so boarding was delayed which then resulted in longer delays as wind gusts kicked in and could not take off after boarding the plane result missed bus connections"

Cons: "On time. Friendly staff"

Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, no even access to an App via your own Ipad"

Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Very rude male crew My baby started crying only by the end of the journey because her ears were hurting her due to high atmospheric pressure, and the guy came and shouted at her and us to stop crying !!"

Cons: "No room and EVERYTHING was an extra charge---we didn't even get water without a charge."

Pros: "Flights today on time"
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."

Cons: "Close seating. 45 minute delay to take off. sitting in cramped airplane on runway."

Pros: "None of it"
Cons: "The whole Jetstar team"

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

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

Cons: "Fast efficient travel friendly staff"

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."

Pros: "i like the use of kiosks they need to have more machines as the staff have a poor service attitude and give the responses as machines."
Cons: "Booked a ticket with 20kg checked bag; didn't pack as much so took a carry on. The flight was delayed so they decided to weigh carry ons. It came to 10kg plus Laptop bag. They charged me $50 extra. On explaining I have 20kgs included and am happy to go check it in myself. They didn't let me. Not sure why when the flight was delayed by more than 30 min. staff not helpful or considerate. No solution offered to make me happy or to acknowledge that I had already paid for 20kg. I could be talking to a machine and it would've been the same outcome."

Cons: "As I stated previously this company's complete lack of concern for customer service is appalling. I have directed my managers and staff to ensure that this company is no longer engaged to supply transportation to any of my companies"

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."

Pros: "Plane was unable to get to a gate after landing but we were kept informed."
Cons: "Paying four dollars for an orange juice."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and Jetstardid not bother to send an email advising flight cancellation."

Cons: "Flight cancelled Had to recheck in. Boarding gate changed 3 times"

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

Cons: "The flight was cancelled at short notice without explanation"

Pros: "Not really anything."
Cons: "Our first flight from queenstown to Gold Coast was delayed for 4 hours, so we were going to miss our connecting flight to cairns. The desk agent in queenstown told us that we could catch the Sydney flight and due to the mistakes that Jetstar made, we would be able to spend our layover in the Qantas lounge. Once we landed, we tried to go to the Qantas lounge and were denied entry and told that we needed Jetstar to call Qantas and give us access. We then went back to Jetstar and they told us there was nothing we could do. We were stuck in the airport, unable to check our luggage as Jetstar has a 2 hour check in policy, and nowhere to go. Will NEVER fly with them again."

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: "The staff were very warm & professional from the beginning at check in to the end of departing our flight. Would recommend again."
Cons: "You can only purchase food with a debit card or Credit card."

Cons: "On time"

Cons: "Inconsistencies in interpretation of cabin baggage Browns cows boarding procedures, lack of organization, time wasting system of issuing boarding pass at the gate after scanning tablet or phone, perhaps that should be done at bag drop"

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: "I was surprised how comfortable the seats were and how much legroom there was for a low cost airline to fly internationally such a long distance (Tokyo to Sydney). The crew were friendly and we did receive water and tea for free, which was a surprise. The entertainment selection was pretty good and the screens were the nicest HD screens I've seen on an international flight."
Cons: "Had to connect in Gold Coast before arriving in Sydney. I know this is normal for many international flights, but it would have been nice to have a nonstop Tokyo to Sydney. I guess that is why it is a discount airline!"

Cons: "We (I, my wife and son ) did not know our booking with no baggage. The woman asked me $100 baggage fee when we checked in. However, total weight with our three baggages is only about 30 Kg. Each baggage is accord to the carry on boarding rule. In fact, we only want to check in one baggage. But, she told me $50 per baggage. She cheat us. Buy 20 Kg baggage only need $24 in Jetstar internet."

Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing."
