They were on time.

I put it online and it was not clear that there would be extra charges for all checked baggage. I had to go back and add to check bags at a cost of $25 each. When we got to the airport the gate was not listed and we had to wait in the general area away from the boarding gates. They did not post the gate until they actually started boarding the airplane so when we got there we were pretty much at the end of the line. And They did not board by rows or any other method it is come one come all chaos. Then while we were in the baggage police came by to check the weight of our carry-ons. They did not check everyone only some. We were among the unfortunates that got checked. We were slightly over there a maximum and had to check two carry-ons. Another $25 each. everything about the airline seems cheap. The seats do not even have a little pocket in front of you to put things like glasses or books. They must've saved $1.50 on each seat. After all the extra charges it would've been cheaper to book with her quality airline. Unfortunately we have a return flight booked and can't get our money back so I'll have to fly one more time. But never again.

Boarding - It showed "one hour delayed" and then once the initial boarding time comes, it says "now boarding". Crew - We sat in the back seats and the crews talked about their co-workers. One of the dudes sounded feminine and it was annoying. Drama about other people. drama drama.

Jetstar is a budget carrier so I do not begrudge the additional costs for food, baggage, etc. I do, however, continue to be disappointed with their poor customer service. The service desk had a long line, 4 service representatives ad only one representative service customers.

First time on a domestic airline in Australia, I read the information which appeared to say you could bring a 7 kg carry on item and a computer bag and a women could bring a small purse. When we checked in my wife's purse and my laptop in bag were all added as additional weight. So we were forced to pay additional excess weight charges of $50.

I will never fly Tiger again.

Tigerair gouges passengers for luggage, the website does not clearly explain their policy. While a single 15kg piece of baggage, if paid for on the website, was $13, if paid for at checkin was $72. And whereas a computer cabin bag is everywhere in the world we have flown is allowed in addition to a regular cabin bag without having to pay extra, we had to pay $36 for the computer bag that we had not paid for on the website. And they apply their confiscatory fees at the gate where passengers have no alternatives, their policy is buried in fine print (weasel words), not clearly stated on their website Your website should call out the baggage and cabin luggage fees so that passengers can avoid being ripped off by Tigerair. I shall never fly with them again..

Unfortunately, there is nothing I like!!!

7 Kg per person rule including your handbag and leep-warm clothing, and neck cushion, babymilik and toys :is absolutely DISGUSTING! Most airlines allow 10Kg carry-on! They should have BOLD clear WARNING about luggage requirement @ the booking site, so that 'BUYER BEWARE". Probably end up with NO business!! And the checker acts like a 'MOTHER SUPERIOR', with no MERCY. I end up throwing away all my muchies and lost some of my luggage, being force to thumble everything right @ the boarding gate! Being a seasoned traveller, $50.00 per bag for check in bag, amount to 2/3 of your ticket price, is the highest I have ever seen in airlines!!! Truely, they attract you with a lower price than Virgin Atlantic, but they cut your throat with the carry-on and coffee and water! And they cancelled my return flight! And I am forced to take a flight time, that does not suit my itinerary! NEVER fly jetstar again!!! I feel I am taken!

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
