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!"

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: "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"

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"

Cons: "Paying four dollars for an orange juice."

Cons: "They don't serve glass of water,want to sell small bottle for 4$"

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: "I was charged $300 and forced to check my bag (weighing less than 50 pounds) and my carry on. These charges were absolutely not predictable."

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

Pros: "Overall, the flight from Avalon to Sydney was nice, so no complaints about anything else other than the luggage issue."
Cons: "I did not realize my ticket did not include checked luggage, so I was charged to check my bag. I was also charged for "excess" luggage because my bag was over 15kg (because I had been traveling internationally, my bag was 20kg) so in total I had to pay $125 just to check my bag. I would have saved more money booking my flight through a major airline in the first place."
